So weird that it specifically mentions "...to a Russian billionaire...", who actually uses terms like that in professional correspondence? I bet Trump wrote this or dictated what to say.

And stolen from Gaf:

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, the law firm advising President-elect Donald Trump on handling his business conflicts, won the Russia Law Firm of the Year award in 2016.

The law firm announced the award in a press release last May, noting it was recognized in the Chambers & Partners' 2016 Chambers Europe guide. According to Morgan Lewis' website, the firm's Moscow office staffs more than 40 lawyers who are well known in the Russian market and "have deep familiarity with the local legislation, practices and key players.

Incredible to think that it was only a week ago that Trump was supposedly celebrating his first win (which admittedly was not much of a win) with the AHCA vote and victory party at the White House. It's been quite a week since! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Comey furious at lack of respect White House showed, sources say

Former FBI Director James Comey was furious at the lack of respect the White House showed him in the way he was fired, sources have told ABC News.

Associates say he is simmering at some of the comments directed at him by White House staffers, who have used words like "atrocities" to describe his actions as director.

One person close to the former director said that President Trump calling Comey a "showboat" and suggesting he is not "competent" has required Comey to show considerable restraint.

"Look, he's a showboat. He's a grandstander," Trump said about Comey in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt on Thursday. "The FBI has been in turmoil. You know that. I know that. Everybody knows that."

A source said they expect that at some point Comey will respond to Trump -- but it is uncertain when that would be. For now, Comey has taken a few days to gather himself, particularly given how caught off guard he was by the timing of the firing.

Imagine the stress of being a White House press person having to explain and answer questions about Trump's actions. Just imagine :dread:

Forget for a second that we are talking about the president of the united states.

To fire someone publicly, before you even tell them,on Tv and then slag them off, publicly, on Tv again. Whilst Twittering about it.

It so shockingly unprofessional, in any industry or business.

And that person is the President.

I cant even find humour in the situation anymore.

This. I wonder if he did this while running the hotel chain, every time some manager or director was laid off, is this how it was done?

I guess it's just because this is all so public and Trump literally believes he can just say anything and everyone will believe him. Sad thing is there are tons of people who do. :fp:
