So all the rage on the Morning Joe today...

Trump is now taking on the evil dead.... :lol:
In posts on Saturday and Sunday, Mr. Trump renewed his criticism of Senator John McCain, the Arizona Republican who died in August from complications from a virulent form of brain cancer.

The president attacked Mr. McCain over his role in the Justice Department investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. He then added that Mr. McCain “had far worse ‘stains’ ” on his record, including the senator’s decisive vote against repealing the Affordable Care Act.

“Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain,’” he tweeted on Saturday, quoting comments in a Fox News interview by the former independent counsel Ken Starr about the so-called Steele Dossier, which outlined a range of often salacious but unproven misdeeds by Mr. Trump and his associates.

“So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) ‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election,” he wrote on Sunday. “He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!”

In fact, Mr. McCain provided a copy of the dossier to the F.B.I. after Election Day. But supporters of Mr. Trump have seized on the dossier’s uncorroborated accusations and political roots in the campaign as a way to try to discredit the special counsel’s Russia inquiry.

The comments exemplified Mr. Trump’s model for presidential communication, both in form and tone, exploiting the power and urgency of social media, often with harsh and bitterly personal attacks. But they also sparked swift condemnation, showing that the president abandons conventional boundaries of civility like not speaking ill of the dead at his peril.

And she needs more time than that to go to battle with Trump. Trump would still get his butt kicked.

I don’t see how George and Kellyanne stay married. I mean, I thought the Carville-Matalin pairing was strange, but this one is downright weird.

I'd divorce her at this point if I were him. I mean really. Look, first of all, there are plenty of people with credentials who have said that Trump is mentally ill. And even without that it's obvious. It's like I said in a post a while back: If I see someone on their hands and knees throwing up on the sidewalk I don't need to be a medical doctor to know they are physically ill. And nobody who watches Trump's behavior for any length of time needs to be a doctor of psychiatry to know he's mentally ill. It's fiipping obvious.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

true ^...
But i would argue that politics as a profession attracts the mentally ill
Trump is presently the most mentally disturbed person I've seen make it to these heights

Kellyanne Conway is an opportunist, much like Trump. She doesn't give one sh*t about anything except what benefits her. If MSNBC offered her a better position with more pay tomorrow, she'd on with Rachel Maddow that night touting the benefits of the Green New Deal.

Here's a great story on how Kellyanne has survived for so long:
https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/24/politics ... index.html
While Trump attacks the media at every turn, he is also the most avid consumer of its journalism -- especially via cable TV -- of any president ever. And while Trump will never admit it, he cares deeply what the media a) thinks about him and b) says about him. ("Trump sincerely held most members of the media in low regard -- that wasn't just for show," writes Sims. "But what he didn't like to admit was that he also craved their approval.")

What Conway has understood throughout her time with Trump is that how the media perceived her -- and her value to Trump -- was the coin of the realm...

...Like her or hate her, that was Conway's central insight -- and what has kept her in the White House (and still with the ear of the President) long after many of her colleagues have either been fired or fallen out of favor. She endeared herself to Trump by being like him.
Her husband knows this; and he plays the game very well. They're meant for each other.

Bill Clinton in McDonalds is my favorite followed by Reagan.

Their parodies of Sarah Palin are also top notch
