    More lies - gets exhausting keeping up with all of them.

    To hear Sean Spicer tell it, Paul Manafort was a bit player in getting Donald Trump elected president. At a briefing on Monday, the White House press secretary actually described Manafort as having "played a very limited role for a very limited time." Except Paul Manafort was Trump's de facto campaign manager, his top aide. And he held the position of "chairman" of Trump's campaign for several months.


    Trump hired Manafort in late March 2016 to lead his delegate effort with an eye on a contested national party convention. Toward the end of the primary calendar in mid-April, Manafort and Rick Wiley were reportedly given control of the campaign, as campaign manager Corey Lewandowski took on a smaller role. Wiley departed the campaign in late May, and on June 20, Lewandowski was fired. Manafort at that point became the clear leader of the campaign.

    That was the case until mid-August, when Trump brought on Stephen K. Bannon as his campaign CEO and elevated Kellyanne Conway to campaign manager. Then, on Aug. 19, Manafort resigned over the questions about the direction of the campaign and -- more importantly -- increasing scrutiny over his ties to Ukraine's pro-Russia former leader.

    We've GOT to give Paul Manafort credit for at least one thing: He may have been the first to alert America of Donald Trump's mental illness, when he told us that "Donald Trump has two completely different personalities."

    Once upon a time, back in the day, Americans understood that having multiple personalities was a definite sign of mental illness. Once upon a time, if you told someone you knew a certain person had multiple personalities, they would likely point their right index finger at their right temple, make a swirling motion with their finger, and be humming or whistling the theme song to 'The Twilight Zone'.

    When the HELL did that change?!???

    Theory:

    Fact: Story comes out that UK intelligence agencies have advised US counterparts that a recording exists of Trump watching leaky prostitutes. Concern that he is corruptable because of said recordings.

    Fact: Trump, in unguarded tweet, insists that Obama had the UK government tap Trump Tower.

    Question: if the wiretapping is a lie or a crazy old man ranting, why would Trump specify the UK? Was was theUK part of the accusation?

    Conclusion I pull out of thin air for discussion: Trump only discussed the peeper video in Trump Towers, and so now believes that's how the uK found out about it. Because that's the only way they could know.

With VHS, DVD and NetFlix, I have neither need nor desire for TV service, and the family that lives above me (they have the upstairs of a house, I have the downstairs) would not watch TV even if they had one. (My TV functions as my main computer monitor.) When my part-time roommate is here and streams the news, it is incredibly annoying, like it shatters the harmony of a house in which I constantly stream the classical station (currently Der Freischutz: Overture, Opus 77, by Carl Maria von Weber).
    Dude, it harshes-out your chill.

    Of course there are links available now, it's hours after you rushed to start this thread.

    You have a habit of starting threads without links.

    Yes I can google. Can you please start threads with links in the future? I know it's a lot to ask but try.

    No surprising for you in the least. Trump worshipers are hard to dissuade.

    Without Russia's help...could Trump have run the campaign he did being a repulsive compulsive liar dependent on conspiracy theories and wikileaks?

    Nope.he needed Russia and Putin's help to do it.
    He's shit imo.

    I also find it interesting that after all the GOP did over the eight years of Obama to go after Clinton with repeated investigations and seeing that all being a complete failure that they, each and every one of them, would not have resorted to the option of letting the Russian's attack our electoral process in order to defeat Clinton.
    For them to pretend they all weren't for that option if need be, which turned out to be the case, is simply not believable..imo.
