I thought Ivanka and Jared actually moved back to New York.

I didn't ascribe enough meaning to the comma in this WaPo headline: "Ivanka and Jared, move back to New York."

The column is by Joe Scarborough. He's advising IT and JK to move back to New York. I'm not advising you to read his column which I assume is boring. I just thought it was really interesting hot news. Important comma.

The President gets to choose whether he wants his daughter and son-in-law around the White House; not Joe Scarborough.

mockturtle said...

Speaking of Ivanka, I read the other day that she remarked regarding the new Chief of Staff' that she would 'enjoyworking alongside Mr. Kelly'. 'Alongside', mind you, not 'reporting to'. I hope Kelly keeps her and Jared at arm's length, at least in the Oval Office.

First the Oxford comma, now the Scarborough comma. I eagerly await the Swansea comma.

They should leave. Go back home, enjoy their private lives, before his indictment. What a shame he may end up in jail, just like his own father.

Ivanka serves as an unpaid employee, special assistant to the president of the United States, in the White House office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees. "Working alongside" is appropriate

"The Manhattan developer is now the least popular first-year president in the history of presidential polling."

I would say Lincoln had him beat, except maybe they didn't have polls back then, and thus not the real point of that statement.

I mean, when Lincoln got elected, half the country left the Union.

But maybe since they didn't have polls, he wasn't rated "the least popular in the polls."

Ann Althouse said...

""The Manhattan developer is now the least popular first-year president in the history of presidential polling.""

In the polls, it's impossible for him to be President. The only question is how well President Clinton is doing. Is she soaring or simply the best ever?

Meade said...

Joe and Mika, divorce each other

tcrosse said...

I suppose this is an important metric if you're in Show Business, or can only think in terms of Show Business. After all, the network might cancel him if his ratings don't improve.

According to the WSJ: "The new rules extend to Mr. Trump’s family. Son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump, who serve as official advisers in the White House and have their own staffs, now report to Mr. Kelly instead of directly to the president, as does chief strategist Steve Bannon."

I drove back to Tucson today and have been listening to the audio of Robert Car's biography of Lyndon Johnson.

The section today was the incredibly corrupt 1948 Senate election that Johnson stole.

It's interesting to see the descendants of Johnson try to steal this one, even after it has been over for 9 months,

Had he not stolen that election this might be a very different country right now.

“In 6 months, President Trump has tweeted 991 times, spent 40 days at Trump golf properties and passed 0 pieces of major legislation."

Unknown said...

From The Hill:

Newsweek’s latest issue calls President Trump a “Lazy Boy,” showing him on the cover lounging in a chair watching TV.

The cover, which was released Thursday, shows Trump in a recliner, his suit stained from Cheetos while juggling a fast food bag and a soda. Other discarded fast-food containers litter the floor next to the president in what appears to be the White House.

“Donald Trump is bored and tired,” the cover reads. “Imagine how bad he’d feel if he did any work.”

The cover continues with a list of numbers for the Trump administration, including that the president has had 6 months in office, spent 40 days at golf clubs and has passed zero pieces of major legislation.

The Godfather said...

This is a little off the subject, but I could use some help on the Trump thing. Not Ivanka and Jared but DJT. I mean this entirely seriously, not at all snarky. I would like to identify a list of say 5-10 things that Trump has accomplished in his very brief administration that reasonable people would have to agree are positive, whether or not they specifically support them. For example, I might cite agreeing to sell anti-missile missiles to Poland. Please, please, PLEASE don't interpret this as a request to debate whether Trump is a Savior or the AntiChrist. The people who comment on this thread are typically very knowledgeable, and also often very snarky. I'd love to get the benefit of the knowledgeable part. I am not trying to start a debate. I'll check back in the morning. Thanks for listening.

Actually, they are Newsweek's arguments or words to be correct.

The Newsweek cover will be seen all over the US by the 64% who do not approve of Trump and they will laugh-out-loud because it is true.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

Not sure. But Trumperstoobey thinks that his sister, a judge, "signs" legislative bills.

Not that I'd discourage a Trumpster from getting all self-righteous on the civics lessons. That's precious!

Freder Frederson said...

For example, I might cite agreeing to sell anti-missile missiles to Poland.

But like most things in Trump world, this is not an achievement yet. Just an agreement in principle, nothing has been signed. And if it does go through it is not the same missile system that Bush wanted to install and Obama cancelled. It is a patriot system which is a short and (barely) medium range anti missile system.

YoungHegelian said...

@Godfather,

Does this help? It's from The Atlantic, so it may help you more as it's a grudging admission from the opposition. (H/T Insty).

In my book, the fact that he's not out there finding additional orders of nuns to sue counts as a big plus (However, DoJ has not yet thoroughly killed the suit against the Little Sisters of the Poor).

Well, TTR: If fat and lazy and uninvolved are the criteria, we all know that Hillary needs to be loaded into vans because of too much vodka or otherwise. And, well, she does fill out a pantsuit. Very filled out.

Achilles said...

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

That's just stupid.

There are a wide variety of things that Trump has accomplished. One of the big ones is that those polls you people fluff yourselves on are obviously meaningless and the sentient part of the country laughs at them. The media never shows the polls about how many people believe them anymore.

Another is that Trump has outed the GOPe uniparty traitors. They voted for 6 years to repeal Obamacare and when they had their chance? Hard to describe how cowardly and shitty the republican party is.

Mostly though we all see Trump trying to take the government boot off our necks. He is eliminating regulations that were never voted on daily.

Yesterday the senate confirmed 72 Trump appointees which is more than they have confirmed since he was inaugurated. That means at most Trump has 140ish of his people in position. We know who is slowing shit down in DC.

You don't hear a single thing about collusion anymore either. Looks like the Stalinist investigation has moved on into investigation of Trump's entire business history. They will find a crime somewhere right? I predict that if Mueller finds another Scooter Libby to lynch Trump will pardon him and tell Mueller to get F'd.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

There are a wide variety of things that Trump has accomplished.

You mean, like five bankruptcies? Yes, that's certainly an uncommon accomplishment.

Or maybe you mean his record number of vacation days as president. True, not many presidents get to accomplish that, either.

Perhaps you were thinking of something along the legislative front, where he got that awesome ACA-repeal, the one he staked his career on, the one he got his Republicronies to labor on in secret - without any female or Democratic senators to craft - to FAIL! Well, I can certainly see that as an accomplishment of sorts.

How about how he said he was going to turn out country into thugistan Russia's biggest, bestest friend ever in the whole world. And then acted so suspiciously and weirdly and secretively about his personal reasons for that that his own Senate, with 53 Republicans, voted 98-0 to sanction his Siberian benefactors anyway.

Trump has filled fewer posts and positions than anyone else mostly because he can't figure out whom to appoint. After all, it's not easy to get someone to work for a guy who can't delegate, can't trust, and pits every one of his "underlings" against each other - to his own constant, personal amusement.

Oh well. He can always appoint his trusty, trust-fund-suckling son-in law to another post that he's just as unqualified for as all the others.

McCain isn't cowardly. He's a dying man who doesn't like to see others die. Braver guy than anyone you know, that's for sure. Murkowski wins write-in ballots after losing Republican primaries - something a chump like Trump could never do. That takes independence. With this independence they outwardly and most Republicans admit privately that they know their states will fall apart from repealing the ACA. It's irresponsible rhetorical bullcrap to price a tenth of your Americans out of the healthcare insurance market. Only a pyromaniacal psychopath or someone who doesn't have to run a state would go along with something so dumb and destructive.

The rest of your rhetoric is just as off-topic as usual. But demagoguing takes practice, I understand.

- Missiles to Poland is a good one
- Also, missiles to Romania
- LNG to Poland -- His speech in Poland was timed to coincide with the first deliveries. And undercutting Putin's ability to blackmail eastern Europe with his gas pipelines is a really good thing.
- Keystone Pipeline
- North Dakota pipeline
- Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
- Exiting TPP

Good. A few more irrelevant (and untrue) weaksauce defenses like this and you'll get the completely ineffectual President Penice. I mean, President Pence.

It's basically an admission that his record can't be defended, at least legally. But we do have Wall Street Michael here to assure us that Trump is a good corporate polluter and raising consumer confidence to a level not seen since we got the housing bubble started.

Will Wall Street bail him out of jail, too? Maybe Wall Street can pay for his legal defense. It might take more than he has. He does like to go "big," after all. Too bad the level of compromised legality and outright criminality to which he's taken the office is just as big as his own fattened ego.

Let's review an electoral gem from Newsweek -- published three weeks before the presidential election:

"If the election were held this week, the project estimates that Clinton's odds of securing the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the presidency at more than 95 percent, and by a margin of 118 Electoral College votes."

But wait -- there's more!

"For the Trump campaign there are a handful of states the Republican candidate must win if he is to cobble together enough states to win the White House. Among them is Florida, but numerous recent visits to the Sunshine State by Trump and his vice-presidential running mate Mike Pence did little to dent Clinton’s advantage in the contest for the state’s 29 Electoral College votes. She leads by 6 percentage points, about the same lead she enjoyed last week."

With no path to 270, it's gonna be an early night for Trump.

Foxconn is going to build a factory in Wisconsin. This will absolutely revolutionize the economic situation in Wisconsin. Plus it will put Wisconsin in touch with the techniques of global manufacturing as it is done these days which is something American workers need to know. Walker and Reince Priebus and the Wisconsin legislature created a business friendly atmosphere unlike that just south of the border. That's the reason Foxconn chose Wisconsin. But no businesses thought of bringing global manufacturing to the US until Trump made it one of his priorities. And low energy prices which are a result of several Trump moves such as supporting fracking, authorizing pipelines, encouraging coal mining are a good business reason to move manufacturing to the US. The Wisconsin left is of course opposing Foxconn and has suggested building up the cannabis industry or distributing iPhones for free instead of making Wisconsin part of global manufacturing.

Meanwhile, Mich McConnell and Ryan would be saying we couldn't stop Hillary from doing anything 'cause y'know she controls the Presidency.

And Bill kristol and national review would be happy as hell - because Hillary "the real conservative" won.

Its amazing the bullet we dodged.
