Does the Marriott Have a Pool?

1507562276987I would expect that Trump properties are prominently on the list of targets in response to this idiot move by the ersatz-president. Since I’m not hearing about this (these are not the properties you’re looking for) I am even more concerned that anything called a Trump Tower might be extremely dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.

It could prove life-saving to post large cautionary signs at all Trump properties: Towers, Gold Clubs, Tenement Buildings.

Of course the question is whether the Iranian blowback will be directed at the United States (military targets) or Trump himself (symbolic targets).

I’d hate to be that one man now.

Depending on the period of history, this has included such groups as Italians, Poles, Irish, Jews, Muslims, Africans, homosexuals, gypsies, and anyone born South of the Border from Mexico to Tierra del Fuego.

Deny, Deny, Deny

download-2.jpgWhen accused of sexual assault or other misdeeds by women, President Donald Trump says you’ve got to “deny, deny, deny,” according to veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s new book.

The book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” was released Tuesday and details a White House is chaos. Woodward spoke to dozens of current and former officials for the book on background, meaning their names weren’t used.

The book includes a conversation between Trump and a “friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women.” The friend was not named, but the president, who has been accused by more than a dozen women of inappropriate sexual behavior, offered some advice.
