Im liking this juicy tidbit about the firing of Keith schiller
“reasons darkly whispered about in the West Wing”
That’d be trump’s long term friend & body guard who’s already testified about Trump being offered prostitutes on that Russia trip
Edit apparently Louise Mensch has some info on this, which will definitely, not be made up 😉Posted 2 months ago
Yes, they did. @KeithSchiller has run multiple spy operations, is linked to Russia (was with Trump in Miss Universe Moscow) and @DanScavino’s coordination of Russian hacking. I’ll have more later today
So you’re saying it is fake news and the book isn’t going to be released???
Or are you claiming Trump’s lawyer didn’t send cease and desist letters??

I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!

this guy Wolff, how did he get such unfettered access to the Trumpian WH
Apprently he had press access, so was allowed in, WH was so chaotic in the first few months, because Trump never said he didnt want him there, no one wanted to risk pissing off Trump & asking him to leave.
The people hes interviewed are not career politicians, just the crazies Trump surrounded himself with!Posted 2 months ago
this guy Wolff, how did he get such unfettered access to the Trumpian WH? Or are they [Trump’s team] saying that he in fact had no such access and is making it all up?
He was undoubtedly a regular presence in the West Wing during the early days of the presidency. The Chances of anyone walking around chatting to folk in that particular location without full clearance or permission from someone – zero, even in an administration as chaotic and incompetent as Trump’s.
Obviously Trump is such a regular and habitual liar that when he says he’s never heard of someone/never gave clearance/can’t remember anything about them you assume that he knew full well who this guy was, as did all the members of his top team who chatted to him repeatedly and with quite some candour, it seems.
To put it in context, Trump has now said Bannon had no significant role in his campaign. Which is obviously untrue. He downgrades the importance of any of his minions who get caught doing naughty stuff or say nasty things about the Donald.
The bloke says he has tapes of many of the conversations, which would settle things one way or another.
Bannon has not denied saying any of the stuff that Wolff reported.Posted 2 months agolungeSubscriber
Possible dumb question, but you guys seem more on top of this one than I have been; this guy Wolff, how did he get such unfettered access to the Trumpian WH? Or are they [Trump’s team] saying that he in fact had no such access and is making it all up?
Naivety on behalf of the Trump team from what I understand. Experienced political campaigners know to restrict access and therefore control what comes out, Trump’s team were much more open to begin with.Posted 2 months ago
So a year in, and Trump’s Presidency has descended (if that were possible!) into a complete farce. No wonder he doesn’t have time to actually run the country or to instruct his team how to run the country, he’s too busy trying to protect his ego, and his team are almost certainly just are running round in circles from crisis to crisis, panic to panic.
As a result of ignoring common decency and morality, no one (on any side) now knows what is true and what isn’t, they can’t remember who said what, too whom or even why, they just lurch around the playground shouting insults.
The White House is now just about Donald Trump and his Ego, rather than about actually governing a country, and the USA has become a laughing stock by the rest of the world. IMO, DT’s “Legacy” a legacy of incompetence and insult will take a long time to recover, even if he’s removed from the Office tomorrow…….Posted 2 months ago

As you might expect, it just paints a picture of incompetence, disarray and confusion from a White House full of people more concerned about themselves than anyone, or anything else……Posted 2 months agoninfanMember
Where do you sit on this ninfan?
Has Bannon “lost his mind”?
He does seem pretty bitter about things doesn’t he? I think he viewed himself as a kingmaker from the start, and still doesn’t understand why he got kicked out.
From Trumps point of view/position, casting Bannon aside (given his actions) was inevitable, a break between “how to get elected” and “how to rule” requiring entirely different peo0le/skill sets around him. It may appear ruthless, but that’s politics.
On the book, as I posted above, much of it appears to be in the realm of salacious gossip and unconfirmed rumour. You have to wonder how come those who shout and scream most about Trump making “unproven allegations” eg. electoral fraud, are so keen to unquestioningly accept unproven and increasingly ridiculous allegations against Trump (how many accepted the Gorilla channel story last night on face value) hence my comment about pigs heads earlier – it may all make angry left-leaning never Trumpers cheer for five minutes, but makes no difference in the real world, where jobs and a positive economic outlook are what matter.
One of the biggest ironies is that the opposition will essentially swallow any story as long as it’s negative about Trump, so we are now in the ridiculous situation where we are supposed to believe that Trump never actually wanted to win but he colluded with Russia in order to win (why bother if you don’t want to win?) on top of which they tell us he’s insanely Machiavellian, but didn’t want or expect to win, which is about the least Machiavellian thing that anyone running for president could believe.
It just doesn’t add up, it’s completely contradictory.
We’ve been hearing that it’s all about to collapse around Trumps ears for two years now, yet still every time he’s written off, he comes back. Look at the polls they’ll say… but then if the polls were right, Hillary was going to storm home with the strongest, most stable leadership this side of what Theresa May was expected to win with.Posted 2 months agodissonanceSubscriber

Well I am sure he will go to court over it and win. As opposed to just using his normal legal threats and then duck away if someone picks up the glove.

Dont forget no fatal commercial aircraft crashes which muppet boy is also claiming credit for.
