Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

As expected, Trump is now starting to destroy the criminal justice system to protect his cronies. All the prosecutors on the Roger Stone case resigned this afternoon (loony leftists losers all of them, of course), after his overnight tweet triggered Barr to pull the DOJ sentencing recommendations in the case. Since he was a friend of Trump, his actions must have been good, and he should therefore be commended for lying to Congress and prosecutors, not punished!

Unrelated, but if they're going to subpoena John Bolton, they have to subpoena Hope Hicks. Why? Oh come on :D ...

I have some news that will make both of you happy.  

Hope Hicks expected to return to White House - CNN Feb 13

"Long seen as a stabilizing force on a boss who likes chaos, Hicks will be "working closely" with Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as well as White House political director, Brian Jack, the official said.  She won't be returning to the communications department, the official said. 

Her official title will be counselor to the President."

So, it's probably more of a behind-the-scenes role, but hopefully for your sake she will be on TV from time to time. :)

Nice legs! And working for Jared, maybe she can use them to distract the Palestinians while he executes the Israeli peace agreement. Meanwhile, Bill Barr strapped on a temporary piece of spinal exoskeleton and suggested that maybe, if it would please the master, that he shouldn't tweet quite as loudly about prosecutors. By noon tomorrow, that will have been forgotten.

Thank you -- excellent news! 

If I ever run for President, my platform will be: "my staff will consist entirely of super-models!"  :D

The media seems pretty consistent in referring to her as a "model", rather than a "super-model". Occasionally qualified as a "Ralph Lauren model".

My campaign is promoting her to honorary super-model. If elected, we'll throw in a Medal of Freedom:

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is awarded by the president of the United States "for especially meritorious contribution to (1) the security or national interests of the United States, or (2) world peace, or (3) cultural or other significant public or private endeavors"

Seconded, (2) and (3). Leave the politics out of it.

@ "model" & "nice legs"
Please... She's a typical solid American meal with a tasteless heavy-makeup topping. The secret is in the nice hair (my hairdresser can show you how to attach them - on tiny loops fastened around bunches of own hair, at the roots). I'm not buying the modelling story.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is much more pleasing to the eye in each and every department, but with anarchist Sanders getting the nomination she has no chance to get a role in the show.

There's no accounting for taste. I'd like to hear trackstar's vote: AOC or:

Leaving aesthetics aside, there is also the tiny little matter of aiding and abetting the destruction of the US republic. Just saying...

I admit it (the destruction of nature and wildlife in particular) makes me strongly biased.
