Can't wait for his speech at the Girl Scouts jamboree. Wonder if he will walk in on them while they are changing?

The Mooch having a poor first week. I know people who do too much coke, and he seems exactly like one of those people.

He's amazing. Almost as masterful at persuasion as Trump.

President Donald Trump isn't going to just let go of Sen. Lisa Murkowski's no vote Tuesday against debating Obamacare repeal.

Early Wednesday, Trump took to Twitter to express displeasure with Murkowski's vote. By that afternoon, each of Alaska's two Republican senators had received a phone call from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke letting them know the vote had put Alaska's future with the administration in jeopardy.

The response follows Trump's no-holds-barred style of governing, even when it comes to his own party. It is his first strike of retaliation against Murkowski, however, despite her tendency to stray from the party line and the president's priorities [...]

Sullivan said the Interior secretary was clear that his message was in response to the no vote Murkowski cast Tuesday on the motion to proceed with debate on the House-passed health care legislation. Efforts and issues on the line include nominations of Alaskans to Interior posts, an effort to build a road out of King Cove through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, and future opportunities to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and expand drilling in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, among other regulatory issues that are a priority for Murkowski and Sullivan.
https://www.adn.com/politics/2017/07/26 ... or-alaska/
Murkowski chairs the Senate energy and natural resources committee and frequently references Alaska priorities in her position. She also oversees the confirmation process for the Interior Department.
A committee hearing on nominations to the Department of Interior and Department of Energy that was scheduled for Thursday was postponed Wednesday afternoon without a determined reschedule date.

Interesting tack. Not sure it was really thought through.

Health care legislation and the returning John McCain, Spicer and the Mooch, Sessions, Boy Scout Jamboree, transgenders in the military, and Murkowski v. Zinke-- I think it's safe to say we've just had the most interesting week in US political history.

And it got more interesting. Former RNC Chair and Paul Ryan pal Priebus is out, Kelly is new Chief of Staff, and a new DHS Secretary nominee will have go through the confirmation process and get grilled by a bunch of frustrated Senators.

Former Chief of the same PD that the POTUS spoke to the other day.
James Burke, the disgraced Suffolk County police chief sentenced to prison after being convicted of orchestrating a department cover-up, was released from solitary confinement, where he was placed about two weeks ago after Oxycodone pills were found in his prison cell, sources tell News 4.

Burke was in solitary confinement for the past 16 days, the sources said. During that time he was only allowed to leave his cell one hour a day.

Burke is serving a 46-month sentence after he was convicted last year in the beating of a handcuffed man who stole embarrassing items from the chief's SUV [...]

Burke was convicted in February 2016 of orchestrating a department cover-up after beating a handcuffed man for stealing embarrassing items from his SUV. He pummeled the heroin addict who had taken his gun belt, ammunition, a box of cigars and a bag containing sex toys and pornography, prosecutors said.

Season 2 started quickly.
President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.

Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.

The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.

A tall claim.

Mississippi, Florida and Alabama seceded on January 10-11-12 in 1861. That's an interesting week.

Kennedy assassinated Nov 22 in 1963. Nixon resigned on Aug 8 in 1974. Each of those made for an interesting week.

Twice a day since the beginning of the Trump administration, a special folder is prepared for the president. The first document is prepared around 9:30 a.m. and the follow-up, around 4:30 p.m. Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer both wanted the privilege of delivering the 20-to-25-page packet to President Trump personally, White House sources say.

These sensitive papers, described to VICE News by three current and former White House officials, don’t contain top-secret intelligence or updates on legislative initiatives. Instead, the folders are filled with screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful.

Media company whose owner is full of shit? That doesn't narrow it down much.

That said, this isn't exactly different than anything any other major source is reporting.
