Odd response. The point of my post was to highlight the fact that the guy now posts any and all Trump theories no matter how conspiratorial. It wasn't suggesting I unfollowed him as a punitive measure.


I don't see Seth Abramson that way. I am not saying he's going to be proven right on every single thread, but he's basing his theories on newspaper reports, not so called inside sources. The stories may be off base of course, but until Mueller does his thing, I think Seth is not a bad place for keeping up to date, especially when obscure names appear in particular stories.

That said, I'm not on twitter, so I only read his stuff when I want to. I don't have to worry about hundreds of notifications when he's on his latest posting frenzy.

He frames every story as'This is HUGE. This is what will bring down Trump!' even if that's specifically not the case. He's gotten so overblown that I stopped caring about anything he posted.

All these stories become white noise after a while, there's so much gooseberry fool flying about that it's hard to focus on each turd, they all smell the same and leave the same mark on the wall, but now I've totally lost my train of thought with this crappy metaphor.

That's because it was a gooseberry fool metaphor.

How many people are left from the start of his Presidency?

I honestly expect him to try and sack Pence soon so he can replace him with Ivanka.

Is that because he blamed Russia for the attack in the UK while the White House avoided mentioning Russia?
"We have full confidence in the UK's investigation and its assessment that Russia was likely responsible for the nerve agent attack that took place in Salisbury last week," Tillerson said in the statement.

He continued, "There is never a justification for this type of attack -- the attempted murder of a private citizen on the soil of a sovereign nation -- and we are outraged that Russia appears to have again engaged in such behavior. From Ukraine to Syria -- and now the UK -- Russia continues to be an irresponsible force of instability in the world, acting with open disregard for the sovereignty of other states and the life of their citizens."

The State Department's position on the attack appears be much stronger than the White House's response.

Its just a complete coincidence this happened on the same day that Tillerson said Russia was responsible for the nerve agent.

He's fired his personal assistant too:

Trump’s Personal Assistant Is Fired
John McEntee was escorted out of White House on Monday for unspecified security issue

President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee, was escorted out of the White House on Monday, two senior administration officials said. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, “We don’t comment on personnel issues.” Mr. McEntee didn’t return a call seeking comment.

Mr. McEntee was one of the longest-serving aides to Mr. Trump, dating back to the earliest days of the campaign when some of the only aides around the then-candidate included Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser; Stephen Miller, the president’s policy director; White House communications director Hope Hicks, who announced her resignation two weeks ago; and Dan Scavino, who is the White House director of social media.

Mr. McEntee wasn’t as well known as the others, but had been a constant presence at Mr. Trump’s side for the past three years. He made sure Mr. Trump had markers to sign autographs, delivered messages to him in the White House residence and, over the weekend, ensured that the clocks in the White House residence were adjusted for daylight-saving time.

“It’s not going to be great for morale,” one White House official said about Mr. McEntee’s departure.

Mr. McEntee was removed from the White House grounds on Monday afternoon without being allowed to collect his belongings, a White House official said. He left without his jacket, a second White House official said.

It wasn’t clear exactly why Mr. McEntee was fired on Monday. He indicated to colleagues that it was an issue in his background.

The troll didn't insult her incorrectly. Trump almost certainly does have Ivanka. :dread:

Tillerson doesn't know why he was fired:

So it likely was the Russia comment that triggered the firing:

Blimey! I was away from US news for about an hour and this happens. Keeping on top of it all is a full time job with Trump.
