Couldn't even find it on German tabloid. If it doesn't pop up during this day it is probably fake.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

did not know Gorsuch's mom tried to wreck the EPA under reagan and ended up resigning from some funds mismanagement scandal.

so monday's news Kushner's going to be leading a new organization in the white house bent on turning america into a business and the public is the customers.

Yes, that is basically what he said. There's nothing americans love more than how corporations are run.

It's like 50 tweets, gotta expand the "replies" after like the first 12 and keep doing so like ever 10-12 tweets.

Well, lotta Russins turning up dead, and former Russian expert at MI6 abandoned his $1.5M house to basically go into hiding.

He is a young Trump: A mediocre person who grew up with every possible advantage in life and used them to get everything he wanted without regard for anybody he screwed over in the process.

People who do this with tweets often have to meet quotas regarding the number of tweets per day set by their employer.

In commenting on, I believe, Sam Zell, who made a bunch of money in shock-jock radio and then ran the Chicago Tribune and LA Times into the ground, some investment banker noted, "A simpler business than radio has yet to be invented," partly explaining how they could fail so hard at other things.

I feel like developing and flipping real estate is pretty simple business, especially when prices have basically been going up on the coasts since the depression. I mean if you're an ******* like Donald Sterling or Trump and his dad, pay a couple of bribes, don't rent to blacks, pay your financiers when things are going well, take the generous tax breaks, it's kinda free money.

Running the US government and shaping legislation and policy, on the other hand, is hard in the best of circumstances. There are experts in hundreds of little niches, and House and Senate procedure make legal procedure look simple and rational, and then there's the politics.

And, of course, Trump couldn't identify and hire competent people if his life depended on it.
