Trump considering Ryan Lochte for Secretary of State

When asked if he had inappropriate connections with Russian oligarchs and President Putin of Russia, Donald Trump denied it: "нет, мы просто друзья и ты идиот думать, что .Путин потрясающий парень. " He later explained that his daughter vacationing with Putin's girlfriend meant nothing. * * * * * * * * * * Paul Manafort, Trump's second campaign manager, resigned last week and is now under investigation for his Russian money laundering operations. Prior to Manafort's resignation, Donald Trump announced he demoted Manafort, and replaced him with flame-throwing, Republican-establishment-hating, conspiracy theorist, Steve Bannon from Breitbart "news" as Chief Executive and Kellyanne Conway as Manager. Their goal apparently is to go back to the slash and burn strategy of the primaries. Ummmmm, probably won't work either in trying to portray a less volatile, less nutty, candidate.* * * * * * * * * * * * Trump supporter Rudy Guliani claimed that there were no successful radical Islamic terrorist strikes against the US until Barack Obama was President. I guess if you don't count that one on 9-11-2001, the worst terrorist attack in US history, that's sort of true, or the one in 1993, or etc, etc. Rudy said later he was using "abbreviated speech." Uh huh. * * * * * * * * * * More evidence that Donald Trump is deliberately sabotaging his own campaign was added today when Trump appointed Roger Ailes, currently being sued by dozens of female Fox News staff for sexual harassment, as his debate prep guy........* * * * * * * * * Shocking statistic: 79% of Americans would rather see their grocery check-out kid as President than Donald Trump. * * * * * * * Trump is campaigning simultaneously against the media, Hillary Clinton, and the Republican party. Doesn't seem like a formula for success to me. I guess we'll see. * * * * * * * * * Latest polls in New York state show Hillary up by bazillion % * * * * * * * * * Donald Trump received his first candidate briefing the other day from US Intelligence agencies. "I can't believe how incompetent those people are," he said. "What they told me is nothing at all like I heard on Fox News or read on Breitbart. What is wrong with those people?" * * * * * * * * * Donald Trump apparently spent 49 seconds distributing toys at a site in Louisiana today before flying out in his private jet. Governor of Louisiana not that happy with Trump's photo op visit. * * * * * * * * Donald Trump announced today he is considering swimmer Ryan Lochte for Secretary of State. "He's the kind of guy I need to implement my new foreign policy," Trump said. "He reminds me of my own two sons. In fact, he reminds me of me."* * * * * * * * * Donald Trump expressed confidence that he can double, even triple, his support among black voters "in the next 4 weeks" at a press conference today. When a reporter pointed out that he was currently at 1% support, Trump abruptly threw a laptop computer at the reporter,cancelled the press event, and walked out. * * * * * * * * * A student of mine came up with this most excellent phrase to describe a cash-strapped student: "He was so poor, he was eating store brand ramen noodles." I like that. * * * * * * * * * John McLaughlin died the other day at 89. I had mixed feelings about him. He had an engaging news panel show, but he was also the guy who invented the "news-pundits-yelling-at-each-other" format. That format has continued.............* * * * * * * * * *Um, apparently, the US refused to give Iran back a negotiated settlement of $400 million of its money until after certain hostages were released. To that, I say, "Good show!" * * * * * * *

Translation of нет, мы просто друзья и ты идиот думать, что .Путин потрясающий парень: "I didn't mean it in 1974 when I said 'The only good Red is a dead Red.'
