For dictators Trump has a sweet spot;

He likes Putin and Xi  quite a lot.

Erdogan and Al-Sisi

Were buddies in D.C.

Now Duterte's been given a shot.

  • Either that, or fifth column plutocrats. Note, all the sudden, that Mr. I Don't Pay Taxes and That's Smart says that the current bills don't give the rich enough of a tax break, and he appointed a person with connections to the drug industry to dismantle HHS.

    To get back to a previous discussion, I don't think the Senate bill, as portrayed, is tax reform.

  • Perfect!

    I still can't believe he's our President.
