Smart is smart, and dumb is dumb, and never the twain shall meet

From Newsweek:

Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal has been one of Trump’s sternest critics, and in typical style, the president has responded with attacks of his own.

Reacting to Blumenthal’s allegations of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia, President Trump today unleashed a new tirade against the Connecticut senator.

“Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist!,” tweeted Trump.

Cyber-stupidity

From NBC NEWS:

WASHINGTON — Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, blasted President Donald Trump on Sunday for his administration’s lack of a response to Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, saying, “This whole idea of moving forward without punishing Russia is undercutting his entire presidency.”

A Plethora of Bullshit

Ivanka Trump in an interview on Fox and Shitheads Friends :

I advise my father on a plethora of things.

A plethora? Really? Most people would say lots of things, but Ivanka attempts to make herself sound smart by using fancy words when simple ones will do, even if she makes them up. Architecting anyone? Here’s a big word for ya, Ivanka…pretentious!

The Hundred Days Boor

From the Mirror:

Before his election, Donald Trump repeatedly pledged to “make America great again”, laying out an ambitious plan for his first 100 days.

His “contract with the voter” lis­­­­­­ted 28 promises he would deliver.

Well, the 100 days are up today and so far he has lived down to expectations by failing to deliver on a single major issue.

In the run-up to the milestone day, he moaned: “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”

But one thing the US President has managed is to achieve more mayhem and confusion than any of his 44 predecessors.

One For the Books

From Salon:

A reviewer for the official National Park Service bookstore at Ford’s Theatre has recommended that Bill O’Reilly’s bestselling new book about the Lincoln assassination not be sold at the historic site “because of the lack of documentation and the factual errors within the publication.”

Rae Emerson, deputy superintendent at Ford’s Theatre, which is a national historic site under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, has penned a scathing appraisal of O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever.” In Emerson’s official review, which I’ve pasted below, she spends four pages correcting passages from O’Reilly’s book before recommending that it not be offered for sale at Ford’s Theatre because it is not up to quality standards.

The Iowa Straw Poll? It’s Like Buttah!

From abc NEWS:

DES MOINES — Walking amid the good folk and food booths and rides at the Iowa State Fair, it’s hard to get a sense people are fixated on politics in the aftermath of the Republican debate and before the important straw vote in Ames.

Iowans seem more intent on viewing the giant carved butter cow in the Ag building or sampling the newest featured food at this fair – deep fried butter on a stick.

…snip…
In the debate, some candidates reappeared, some candidates disappeared and one new big player is about to appear. For the last few weeks, Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty have basically gone off most folks’ radar screen – but that changed.  Each showed up in a much more forceful way. Pawlenty had a number of skirmishes and exchanges with the other candidates, especially Michelle Bachmann. And she definitely held her own.
