"[L]eaving on vacation, huh? What for? If you're not happy with your job, just leave," Fox tweeted. "After all, it was never for you."
To Call a Mockingbird or a spade a spade or a trump a trump?

"What is his reason for such a vacation?" You ask.

We can all take an edumicated guess...

1. He needs time to catch up on what is going on in his businesses (continue to secretly manage them from the shadows) and discuss related strategies, something he is not supposed to be involved in because of the Emoluments Clause

2. Additionally, his need to reiterate goals and strategies regarding shoring up leaks about the Russian scandal. And to decide on what and when to release the next sordid rounds of obvious lies to throw the scent off just long enough for it to die of old age amidst the deluge of other revelations.

Ok, you're right. That is much too Machiavellian for Trump's poor IQ to carry a hope. The sordid lies are truly his.

3. Time to bury his head in his hands after he pulls it out of his arse in light of the complete ass he's making of things and himself.

4. To get away and clear his head from the overwhelming and enormous think tank that comes along with wielding the reins of the most powerful and largest Nuclear Reactor on the planet knowing you are way in over your head.

5. Rest from the exhausting weight of trying to constantly and consistently maintain his composure amidst the complete and utter continued shock at actually being elected.

Trump. He wasn't ready.

He isn't ready.

Or for those of us not wearing tinfoil hats, he's just taking a summer vacation like almost everyone else in the country. Two weeks is nice though, most of us only get one (cue gloating from the Europeans).

Oh and they're also installing a new HVAC system so he can't be there, even if he wanted to be. It was supposed to be installed in 2014 but like most government projects it's running behind.

I haven't had a summer vacation in years and years. I take a long weekend in September and another long weekend in March to help run two conventions.

Most people I know can't afford more than a weekend off somewhere near by. Just saying.

Time for the latest instalment of Trump screaming that reporting is "Fake News!!!" I'm thinking... ... sater.html

WASHINGTON — A business associate of President Trump promised in 2015 to engineer a real estate deal with the aid of the president of Russia, Vladimir V. Putin, that he said would help Mr. Trump win the presidency.

The associate, Felix Sater, wrote a series of emails to Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, in which he boasted about his ties to Mr. Putin and predicted that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would highlight Mr. Trump’s savvy negotiating skills and be a political boon to his candidacy.

“Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it,” Mr. Sater wrote in an email. “I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”

This coming out after WaPo broke the story last week that, yep, Trump was negotiating a Trump tower in Moscow in the lead up to the Presidential primaries contrary to Trump's constant "we have no dealings with Russia!!!" protestations.

Chelsea Clinton Subtly Shades Ivanka Trump Amid Reports Her Old Friend Visited Putin's Private Office

The lies of this administration are so blatant and in your face disrespectful that it should be considered a domestic war crime.

What a smooth and classy Chelsean tweet.

There is no way that Donald should be thrown in jail. He should be thrown under the jail, in the dungeon.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense
