He picks out the boss at 1:40, latest, and folds his wings. He is maybe 1/3 of the way down the tower at the time. In other words he is picking out a specific person, waving his hands a bit, from above, from a crowd, from around 1800ft: incomprehensible visual acuity.

Ok, Google. You’re in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise…

Putin offers to give U.S. Congress notes of Trump’s meeting

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered Wednesday to turn over to Congress records of U.S. President Donald Trump’s discussions with Russian diplomats in which Trump is reported to have disclosed classified information. His offer added a bizarre twist to the furor over Trump’s intelligence disclosures.

Putin’s remarks come as Washington was reeling over revelations late Tuesday that Trump personally appealed to FBI Director James Comey to abandon the bureau’s investigation into National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The White House issued a furious denial after word emerged of Comey’s notes detailing Trump’s request.

The president is not a child. He’s something worse.

We were wrong, it turns out. Anyone cannot be president. Anyone can be elected president (any man, that is), but not anyone can be president.

After the careless, boastful revelations of his great intelligence to Russia, the firing of the FBI director, the new allegations that he asked James B. Comey to just “let this [Michael Flynn investigation] go” and the months of conducting himself without any curiosity, reverence for history, or ability to avoid mistakes, many columnists lately have been calling President Trump a child, or a bull in a china shop. This is, I think, unfair to children, and to bulls. Bulls have done a good job running Wall Street. Sometimes children are not cruel on purpose. Children can sit still and are often unable to stick their feet into their mouths, and sometimes will let you get more ice cream than they get.

He is something more terrifying than a child. Children can learn.

  1. Look at how I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,” President Trump said at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy’s commencement on May 17. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.”

    Well, the Emperor Valerian was captured in battle, enslaved, used as a foot-stool, forced to drink molten gold and then skinned and stuffed. Does that count?

  2. Someone told him about the Jon Stewart observation that he always says “believe me” when he’s lying, so he’s switched it up with “and I say this with great surety”.

Duck Ramps Appear at U.S. Capitol, but Not Everyone Is Pleased

Political turmoil rocked the nation’s capital again on Tuesday evening as politicians from both parties responded to President Trump’s — you know what, never mind. This is a story about ducks.

Ducklings, to be precise. Ducklings walking up a ramp and stepping off it into the waters of the Capitol Reflecting Pool, which can be difficult for them to do unassisted because they are very small.

The two ramps at the reflecting pool are a new feature whose arrival Monday attracted attention (from humans, at least) only after a congressman voiced his displeasure. This is happening in Washington, after all, so it may not surprise you to hear that the duck ramps were controversial.

The ramps were installed by the Architect of the Capitol, an office that acts as the steward of the historic buildings and grounds on Capitol Hill. Shortly after they went up, Representative Mark Walker, Republican of North Carolina, criticized them on Twitter as a misuse of government funds.

Well, I guess this must be the first occurrence of a Lame Duck complaining about a duck ramp.. but daaamn, really? Okay, let’s make a list of the costs involved here:

$30 – lumber

$40 – paint

$120 – design

$63,000,000 – Trump Golf Trips

$200 – labour

So someone pleeeeaaase help me budget this duck ramp
