I wonder if that was before or after he was bailed out big time by Chinese investors. After the early 1990s real estate downturn, Trump could not service his loans on a large chunk of Manhattan. No one would lend to him and he was forced to go to a Hong Kong consortium of top developers who took over his debts, developed the land and gave him 30%. Years later, the Chinese sold it at a very handsome profit. Trump was furious as he was not consulted and insisted he could have got a better deal. He even tied his erstwhile partners up in lawsuits for several years. Thereafter none of them would ever consider buying a broom cupboard from Trump!

Here is what one of the most revered Conservative Writers has to say about Mike Pence.

You might need a dictionary. I did, but have been in complete agreement for years about Pence.

Remember the fake covers of TIME magazine which we learned used to adorn Trump’s golf and other clubs? Another example of Trump’s inexorable vanity appears in an interesting article in the international edition of today’s New York Times. Soon after the acclamation at one of his recent Nurnberg-style rallies that he be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize came the news that 18 clearly brain-dead members of the House of Representatives had formally submitted his nomination. In the article, the Chairman of the Committee which decides who gains the Award, Berit Reiss-Andersen, makes the point that on two previous occasions “a nomination for him had been forged by an unknown perpetrator whose motives remain a mystery.” A mystery? Diplomatic language, no doubt, as she will be well aware that a man of his monster ego will go to any length to gain world attention.

But I wonder on what basis those fake nominations had been made? What on earth in his tiny world of property development or his silly mini-mogul television appearances could possibly justify an award that has been given to such luminaries as Nelson Mandela? The man thrives on division, hate speech and lies. If peace does come to the Korean Peninsula, he will have gained some credit - amongst many who will probably do far more. Against that he has given succour to the hard-liners in Tehran which may well lead at the very least to violence and at worst to outright war.

Unfortunately he has partners in the world such as Benjamin Netanyahu who may be as big a crook as Trump and loves himself as much and now the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia who definitely is in the same mold and rules a country that is as despicable as any in the Middle East.

Imagine that Trump is so ignorant as to tell Bibi when he landed in Israel that he had just come from the Middle East.

If Trump was to get the Nobel , it would drive him nuts that he could not take the same prize away from Obama!

After Trump stiffed his European allies over Iran, Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, hit the nail on the head in a speech yesterday -

With friends like Trump, who needs Enemies?

And as for Giuliani's latest Mueller comments along with the arch-neo-con Bolton's utterly ridiculous suggestion that the model for North Korea's giving up their nukes should be Libya and North Korean's consequent outburst, Trump really ought to be asking - "With friends like these . . . "?

I am a great admirer of Richard Painter. He was the chief White House ethics attorney under George W. Bush. Now he is running, as a Democrat, for the Senate in Minnesota. I became aware of him via his frequent appearances on the panel of Bill Maher's 'Real Time.'

He is a very outspoken critic of Donald Trump.

So in addition to feeling good about being nominated by a group of idiotic Republicans for the Nobel Peace Prize, Trump has had issued an historic coin to commemorate his meeting with Kim in Singapore. Two surprising points. Trump's head is smaller than Kim's! Will the designer who made that mistake still have a job tomorrow? Second one. The meeting might not actually happen. What a joke! Ah well! Since Singapore is not actually mentioned, the coin could still be valid provided there is a meeting before the end of the year. A reason for Kim to draw out the will-they-won't-they dance perhaps?

Surely you jest. He would never do that - adding himself to Mt.Rushmore. What he would be much more likely to do is have his replace the others.

Quite rightly too. What did the others even do that could compare to the Don.
