    In a perfect world, that shitstain should not only be barred from running for public office, but in jail for attempted murder. But, seeing how this scumbag is a Republican, some knucklehead will give him votes.

    Trump skeptical of using foreign spies to collect intel on hostile countries, sources say

    (CNN)President Donald Trump has privately and repeatedly expressed opposition to the use of foreign intelligence from covert sources, including overseas spies who provide the US government with crucial information about hostile countries, according to multiple senior officials who served under Trump.

    Trump has privately said that foreign spies can damage relations with their host countries and undermine his personal relationships with their leaders, the sources said. The President "believes we shouldn't be doing that to each other," one former Trump administration official told CNN.

    In addition to his fear such foreign intelligence sources will damage his relationship with foreign leaders, Trump has expressed doubts about the credibility of the information they provide. Another former senior intelligence official told CNN that Trump "believes they're people who are selling out their country."

    Even in public, Trump has looked down on these foreign assets, as they are known in the intelligence community. Responding to reports that the CIA recruited Kim Jong Un's brother as a spy,

    Trump said he "wouldn't let that happen under my auspices."

    I'm not a huge fan of hers but I've got to give Chrissy the Twitter trophy for this.

    As for Trump comments about the primaries, IMO it goes back to something that IIRC Trump's ghost writer Tony Schwartz once said about Trump. A lot of times things he accuses others of doing, Trump is guilty of himself. We've seen many reports that this was the reason why he ran and really didn't expect to win the primaries.

    So you're saying that Trump's Presidential campaign started out as a mere publicity stunt, but it got out of hand. I think that applies to almost everything in Trump's life.

    trump fired Bolton. Well, his supporters said that trump was going to run the US as a businessman. Given how he has multiple bankruptcies and failed businesses, it looks like that's true.

    This concerns me more than a little since those "personal relationships" Trump mentioned were mainly with despots and dictators like Vlad Putin (Russia), Kim Jong Un (North Korea) and Mohammad bin Salman (Saudi Arabia). For anyone not keeping score at home: Russia meddled in the 2016 elections and might've helped Trump win the presidency; Nuclear armed North Korea threatens the South and Japan almost regularly with short range missile tests while we all know about Saudi Arabia's infamous connection to the 9/11 hijackers. All three of those regimes, given half the chance, would fuck America like a five dollar whore in a New York minute, and everyone knows it too. THAT is who Trump is in bed with while shunning our traditional, longtime allies. Even worse, Trump's naivete that countries shouldn't spy on each other is beyond dangerous.

    **********

    Meanwhile, I just heard about this:

    Trump fires Bolton as national security adviser, saying he ‘disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions’

    No more Johnny Warhawk. This makes me wonder, was Bolton too hardline for Trump's liking, or not hard enough?

    Bolton tried to quit first, according to Bolton.

    Opinion piece by Jennifer Rubin

    Mark Sanford might be Republicans’ last chance

    Ideologically I am much closer to former Massachusetts governor William Weld, but as a matter of political pragmatism, former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford may be the best bet to save the Republican Party from itself before the Democrats do it for them in 2020. No one can accuse him of being a phony conservative, or adopting views for the sake of political expediency. He is saying the same things he has said for years, and that makes for a damning indictment of Trump’s presidency.

    Listening to Sanford on the cable TV rounds over the past few days, I’ll admit, gave me a sense of relief. Here’s a rock-ribbed conservative saying President Trump is imperiling the country with debt and trade tariffs (he should be calling them trade taxes), as well as by his assault on democratic institutions and his horrible tone. Wow! It’s like digging up a time capsule back to the olden days of . . . 2016. Even more refreshing, he’s expressed a conservative vision different from the Luddites who enable Trump.

    In a folksy way, he describes what has happened to South Carolina’s Low Country. He believes in climate change, and argues it is illogical to believe in science when it comes to the galaxy and medicine, but not when it concerns the Earth. Thank goodness! You don’t have to be an elite from the coasts or a socialist to understand climate change is real. (Many more Republicans would say the same if they weren’t cowering from Trump and his know-nothing base.)

    Isn't it quite the coincidence that South Carolina which Sanford represented was one of the states that nixed Republican primaries? Of course, the dead last thing the GOP hierarchy wants is Trump babbling and blathering his way through any debate where his raging stupidity would be on full display.

    I've read that opinion in various articles over the years. I think there a couple of his former associates that have said this in interviews. Howard Stern and others have said he really wanted a better deal from NBC for The Apprentice. For their part, NBC responded by replacing him with Arnold Schwartzenegger as the host.

    And he was not that great in the 2016 debates. Others may disagree but I think Hillary beat him in their encounters. And I can remember anything that made him stand out in the GOP primary debates. IMO he just rode in on his TV fame because voters are that stupid these days.

    I think his mental faculties have been diminishing during his time as POTUS. His teleprompter skills are really crappy these days. Grade schoolers could do better reading aloud. He doesn't want to read anything of any substance so he never learns things he should be as POTUS.

    Bolton swears that it was he who quit.

    He is a ruthless war monger, but less of a liar than Trump, so I'll buy it.
