Another way to get on Trump’s bad side: cough. When Stephanopoulos was interviewing Trump, Mulvaney made that mistake. Trump’s reaction: “If you’re going to cough, please leave the room. You just can’t, you just can’t cough. Boy oh boy.”

According to somebody who worked on Trump’s campaign (reported buy the Washington Post), "I was told by multiple people when I came aboard to never cough or sneeze while in the presence of Trump. He thinks it’s a sign of weakness and lack of control. Nobody ever recovers.”

A four-fer Tweet:

Quote:
President Obama made a desperate and terrible deal with Iran - Gave them 150 Billion Dollars plus I.8 Billion Dollars in CASH! Iran was in big trouble and he bailed them out. Gave them a free path to Nuclear Weapons, and SOON. Instead of saying thank you, Iran yelled.....

....Death to America. I terminated deal, which was not even ratified by Congress, and imposed strong sanctions. They are a much weakened nation today than at the beginning of my Presidency, when they were causing major problems throughout the Middle East. Now they are Bust!....

...On Monday they shot down an unmanned drone flying in International Waters. We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not....

....proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world. Sanctions are biting & more added last night. Iran can NEVER have Nuclear Weapons, not against the USA, and not against the WORLD!

I'm not sure how this differs from our previous policy on Iran except (a) it's a lot less coherent, and (b) we actually had some protocols in place for verifying the extent of Iran's nuclear capabilities.

That's only because it went down almost as much in May as it's gone up in June.

But the May decline was caused by Democrats and illegal immigrants.

And at its lowest in May it was still higher than on any other administration's watch.

Here's an article from USA today documenting the change in the Dow under various presidents (the Trump figures appear to be through 12/25/18 when the article appeared):

I'm leaving Trump out of this because his numbers change day to day, but here's the changes in the DOW under other Presidents since Harding:

Hoover: -82.1%
Nixon: -28.3%
George W. Bush -26.5% (The market continued to drop for about four months after Bush left office in 2009, somewhat skewing both his and Obama's figures)
Carter: -0.7%
JFK: +15.8%
Harding: +23.4%
LBJ: +26.1%
Ford: +40.6%
George H. Bush +41.3%
Truman: +75.2%
Eisenhower: +123
Reagan: +147.2%
Obama: +148.3%
FDR: +198.6%
Clinton: +228.9%
Coolidge: +230.5%

This just proves two things. First the price of everything goes up over time (one dollar in 1920 would be worth about $11.55 in 2018) and second, that stocks are a good long term investment.

From AP:

Quote:
#UPDATE President Donald Trump on Tuesday named Stephanie Grisham -- until now spokeswoman for his wife Melania -- the chief White House press secretary, taking over an office that has seen sharply deteriorating relations with the media.

From today's Congressional Medal of Honor ceremony:
Pres. Trump wrote:
Knowing that he would face almost certain death, David decided to go back inside the house and make sure that not a single terrorist escaped alive, or escaped in any way. He quickly encountered an insurgent who was about to fire a rocket-propelled grenade at his squad. David once again jumped into danger and killed him before he had a chance to launch that grenade.

Next, two more insurgents came out of hiding and fired at David. He returned fire, killing them both. Then, a third assailant burst out of a wardrobe — wearing a wardrobe — and opened fire. David shot and wounded the man, but he escaped up the stairs. Racing after him, David engaged in hand-to-hand combat and killed him too.
I assume the phrases that I italicized are ad-libs. Technically they're correct: No dead insurgents escaped, and the attacker who had been in the wardrobe was clothed. They just make me chuckle.

President Trump (answering a question about Venezuela during a meeting with the President of Brazil during the G20 summit): “That just shows what socialism can do. I’ve been watching the debates a little bit between meetings and I wasn’t impressed. But when you look at the socialism and what it can do, that’s what you’re talking about there. That’s become like the Socialist Party. In fact I heard there’s a rumor the Democrats are going to change the name of the party from the Democrat Party to the Socialist Party. I’m hearing that. But let’s see if they do it.”

Trump is now 2-0 in the 2020 Debate Season. And he hasn't even played yet. Amazing.

Amazing that when asked who would take already limited healthcare resources from Bob's son and ex-wife, who Bob has already admitted won't be able to provide such for themselves, and give them to people who should not even be here, and every one of them raised their hand.

Welcome to the Republican Party Bob!

Other than the humanitarian aspects of giving medical care to sick people (which obviously doesn't matter much to a party that has no qualms about tossing children in concentration camps), from a public health standpoint, it's a good idea not to have tens of thousands of people walking among us who are at risk for catching and transmitting all sorts of diseases.

Welcome to the Republican Party Bob!
Nothing limited about the resources and no one's talking about taking anything away from anyone other than the billionaires who enjoyed a massive tax cut (which I involuntarily helped fund). The Affordable Care Act is working just fine for my son and my ex-wife. My son remains eligible for my insurance and my ex-wife now lives in Washington, a state that enthusiastically implemented the Act, so the exchanges up there are working just fine. Both of those will go away if Donny succeeds in judicially killing the Affordable Care Act.

Most of the problems the Act has can be cured by simply increasing subsidies and by the holdout states accepting the Medicare expansion. Just reversing the billionaires tax cut will provide more than enough money toward that end.

And aside from the humanitarian aspects, it's a really bad idea to create a public policy that encourages more communicable diseases among our neighbors. I want my neighbors getting their shots. If they get sick, I want them able to get treatment. Not just because it's the right thing to do as a human being (although it is). But because I don't want them to make me sick. --Bob
