That doesn't make much sense. I can't imagine that Blair has much access to UK intelligence these days. Blair is a friend of the Clinton's. And Trump would be his natural political enemy anyway (Blair is pro EU for instance).

Farage would make sense (although I doubt he has much UK intelligence either!), Boris would make sense. Blair just doesn't seem to fit.

But the world is strawberry floating crazy, so this will all probably end up with Blair being declared King of the independent empire of New York. ;)

Although the White House yesterday portrayed Wolff as a poseur, he spent hours at a time in private areas of the West Wing, including the office of Reince Priebus when he was chief of staff.

The White House says Wolff was cleared for access to the West Wing fewer than 20 times.
Wolff, a New Yorker, stayed at the Hay Adams Hotel when he came down to D.C., and White House sources frequently crossed Lafayette Park to meet him there.

How could Wolff possibly know for sure what Steve Bannon and the late Roger Ailes said at a private dinner?
It turns out Wolff hosted the dinner for six at his Manhattan townhouse.

Why on earth did everyone involved agree to this? :lol:

I think it's fair to say Blair has more contacts in the intelligence services than Farage, and the story that he was after a job out in the middle east sounds credible. His views on the middle east and Islam seems to align quite well with Trump these days.

Blair has of course denied it, and we know he is totally trustworthy....

I don’t like or trust Blair. It just makes very little sense for him to be leaking information to Trump.

Mainly because they're so deluded that they honestly feel they are above the law and that they can just claim "Fake news" and any criticism will just disappear.
Just a glance at some of the obviously untrue gooseberry fool Trump has said and gets away with proves that to make that delusion almost the depressing truth.

If any of us lied as much at work or made as many media blunders as Trump does we'd be fired but he won't be because for some unknown reason it doesn't seem to matter when he does it.
I have a feeling not many people in an office environment would get past the interview stage if the employer had a tape of them saying they enjoy "Grabbing ladies by the pussy".

I just read an article on ten things that are mentioned in the book. Some of them are funny. Others paint the picture of a deeply unhappy man who never expected to be elected.

Apparently he was fishing for a peace envoy role at the time. It does sound a little fishy although this isn't the first time these allegations have surfaced. Hopefully we'll get some decent evidence about the claim soon though.

I know, poor Donnie. If only he hadn't run for president. None of this is his fault. Everyone else is wrong.

I imagine he's unhappy and frustrated (although I can't believe he didn't want to win).

He's insecure - and he's in a position he's falling for the world to see and he can't bully/bluster out of. He's falling. Nothing appears happening. No one is praising/lauding him. He's brilliant so why isn't it working? Why is it hard?

So Cease and Desist part II. Wolff and the publisher now get the same empty threat.



Everyone is hoping they do sue, because that means discovery and Trump testifying under oath!

Bit late anyway to stop this juicy take:

I think I might have to buy a copy of this book as a birthday present although it's not out for a couple of weeks.

His whole life has been easy. He had a rich father and so his childhood was easy. His adult life was easy thanks to his inheritance allowing him to be the top dog at his company. He’s never really had to work for anything, had spent his whole life getting exactly what he wants and has very rarely been told no.

And now he is President and cannot understand why work is tough and why people will not do exactly what he wants.

Poor lamb. :cry:

Will this mean that far right wingers will now be forced to either ditch Trump or else shut the strawberry float up about “liberal snowflakes want to ban freedom of speech!!1!!”?
