Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Has the phrase "Born on third and thinks she hit a triple?" ever been more true?

And it's even doubly so when it's the celebrity version of the Apprentice. "Don't you want to buy lemonade from Penn Gillette?"

The dumbest part was that they were expected to get massive donations from famous friends and if they didn't, Trump told them they sucked and/or fired them. Yes, because that shows who's good at business. Then it became a strategic thing where contestants would hold off on calling in their big guns in case they were the manager on a similar task.

So their parents’ employees bought off of them to curry favor with their parents, but they thought it was their wile or charm.

A lesson they use today with foreign governments buying rooms at their DC hotel or granting patents or even bribes to curry favor with the president.

And yes, they learned the lesson of “leverage daddy’s name” again and again as they moved on in business

The quote from the article is even better:

"Ivanka, like her father and siblings, was born on third base and thinks she invented baseball."

Damn and I thought she was the one in the group who might have an ounce of talent and self-awareness, but she's just as bad as the rest.

But in a phone interview shortly after he posted the item, the Florida Republican insisted that he was not engaging in witness intimidation at all. *

“No,” he stressed, “it is challenging the veracity and character of a witness. We do it everyday. We typically do it during people's testimony.”

“This is what it looks like to compete in the marketplace of ideas,” he added.
I don't think that's what marketplace of ideas means

So Gaetz is basically Trump's Congressional errand boy on this kind of stuff, which means that Trump is shook by Cohen's public testimony tomorrow...
