This is what half of America sees as the only trustworthy news. It's why Trump was elected, and it will go a long way to help Trump survive this.

"Why Robert Mueller should resign as Special Counsel"

So incredibly blatant. Haha.

That is pretty amazing. I've seen Cooper try to politely shut Jeffrey Lord down, or interrupt him multiple times in a row, but I've never seen him do that. Holy shit, haha.

There's a few CNN anchors that have been putting in the work. However, it really seems like they are caged unicorns over there. They need a better vehicle.

Here we go someone else is reporting on it now.

http://www.businessinsider.com/trump...17-5?r=UK&IR=T

Trump's aides hosted an 'intervention' to try to tone down his Twitter use

President Donald Trump's aides grew so alarmed by the barrage of inflammatory tweets coming from Trump that they organized an "intervention," one official said to The Wall Street Journal.

Hosted several weeks ago, the discussion was reportedly meant to encourage Trump to exercise more restraint on the social media platform, which has gotten Trump into trouble in the past — more recently when he openly accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his campaign.

Aides warned Trump his tweets could "paint him into a corner" potentially compromising him both politically and legally.

Aides were also said to be afraid of leaving Trump alone in meetings given his propensity for off-the-cuff remarks. Such an incident made waves on Monday when it was reported that Trump disclosed classified intelligence about ISIS that was obtained from a key US ally. Trump allegedly shared the information — which was deemed so sensitive, it was held close to the vest within the US — with two Russian diplomats during a meeting in the Oval Office last week.

They're on the ropes and panicking. I would suggest giving Trumpists like that -- and people you suspect may be like them -- a wide berth until we know they're not going to go on a rampage.

There is a nonzero chance that they will try something when their God Emperor goes down.

I was just thinking about this. I thought his presidency would be bad. But i thought the republicans would be able to get much of their shit legislation through.

This is turning out much better than i could have ever imagined, other than hillary winning of course.

I know this shit takes time, but at the rate we're going right now, I dont know if he survives the summer.

Read the whole thing. It's so good. Seems like Reddit is having enough.

At 8:41pm ET on 5/19/2017, Reddit Admins removed three The_Donald mods without warning. This was punishment for our refusal to comply to a special set of rules that were imposed only on this subreddit and prevented our members from fully enjoying reddit or our mods from defending users against harassment.
We are temporarily private in a show of strength against these unfair restrictions. Check back at 9 PM EST tomorrow for an announcement.

Yeah, i was on vacation today: on the road all morning, visiting friends in the afternoon and touring my undergrad campus in the evening. Didn't turn on until close to 9:00 and damn.

It's like a TV drama that posts three new episodes per day.

Edit: R/T_D might be trying to migrate to that VOAT website where FatPeopleHate and Coontown went, thinking that maybe their userbase might be enough to save VOAT from going down in flames (which is imminent).

How can you have 40,000 posts on a site called style forum and not even know how to buy a suit

You have no clue whatsoever how deliberate it all is. Every single thing you mention has been the subject of literally hundreds of forum posts by him. It's as nuts as it sounds. I mean, I get it, I worked in the clothing business dealing with guys like him all the time, but that kind of neurosis just to appear so eerily... normal is Partick Bateman-like.

It's weird because the ultimate end hope is that some other guy will look at your fucking deep double forward pleated trousers or 1 3/8" handmade lapel button hole and silently acknowledge it, but not say anything, because "men shouldn't talk about clothes in public." It's very bizarre and repressed.

Russia has played everyone. Putin doesn't give two shits, he had however made the USA look like fools across the globe. I imagine when things settle down there will be some payback.

Like I've suggested before, Breitbart isn't the only conservative outlet we need to worry about. Fox News treating Trump like he's been unfairly put upon all this time; when Trump has to face actual fallout (suggesting that Fox will report on Trump leaving office to start with), I have zero doubts that they'll whip up their more dangerous viewers into a frenzy believing that "Dems, the Media and Obama" need to be violently pushed back against.

Oh, certainly. If nothing else, he's thoroughly weakened the US intelligence apparatus by destroying the ability of foreign intelligence assets to trust the US and by making the domestic arms of the intelligence community feel like they have to be detached, even estranged from government at all levels.

The FBI and CIA are likely to become seriously compartmentalized and isolated over the next decade, regardless of what else happens.

edit: also, you think with Roger Ailes gone that Fox News would start to consider realigning themselves with reality a bit more, but somehow that just isn't happening. Why is that?
