In a "just want to watch the world burn" way, this Trump presidency has been cracking value for money. Even Veep couldn't come up with scenes funnier than the Kayne/Trump summit!

With anybody else I would think “they probably changed their passcode to 000000 just for this meeting because they knew there would be cameras around and they didn’t want to risk revealing their real code”.

With Kanye I am just surprised he set up a passcode at all.

Fair play to Kanye, it can't be easy making Trump not the most stupid person in the room.

Kanye's music is massively popular without all this additional media coverage. I think he actually believes everything he's saying.

He's an enormous narcissist, of course he believes what he says.

BBC News wrote:US President Donald Trump has suggested "rogue killers" could be behind the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.

Speaking to reporters after a phone call with King Salman, he said the Saudi leader had firmly denied knowing what had happened to Mr Khashoggi.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is flying to Saudi Arabia immediately.

Saudi and Turkish investigators are due to search the Saudi consulate where Mr Khashoggi was last seen.

Mr Trump addressed snatched questions from reporters over helicopter engine noise at the White House, describing King Salman's denial as "very, very strong".

"It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers. Who knows?"

"Did you do it?"
"No"

CASE CLOSED.

He’s safe if we’re talking about Elaine Warren. ;)

Can someone explain why Elizabeth Warren isn't automatically the Dems choice for the next presidential run? Is it just because she's a woman?

Because they have a series of primaries where candidates stand and attempt to get enough delegates to vote for them at their convention.

The party doesn’t just pick somebody.

Also, she'll be 71 by the time of the Presidential election in 2020 - she'd be the oldest incoming president of all time, surpassing Trump himself. The only person to win an election at an older age than Warren will be was Ronald Reagan in 1984, to the best of my knowledge.
