    Trump's "true colors" are orange skin, a black heart, a love of green money and a hatred of anyone with brown skin.

    Analysis: Trump shows voters his true colors
    Stephen Collinson, CNN, August 27 2019

    President Donald Trump tried to explain his agitating approach to life, politics and the rest of the world in a flash of impatience during a blustery news conference in France. "It's the way I negotiate. It's done me well over the years and it's doing even better for the country, I think," he said.

    Trump's comment encapsulated the untamed personality that his fellow world leaders are beginning to get used to and work around after his 31 months in office. But in a deeper sense, Trump also shed light on fundamental judgments about his tenure that voters must make before the 2020 election. His political future could rest on whether a sufficient number of Americans decide that the Trumpian tumult of his first term expresses their frustration with the Washington establishment and has delivered the wealth, peace and patriotic pride that he promised in the 2016 campaign.

    One big risk is that a majority of voters may simply be exhausted by the cacophony of the Trump era that was on display at the weekend at the G7 summit in France and involves chaos, head-spinning policy reversals, lying as a matter of course, perpetual cultural warfare and widening national divides. In other words, is all Trump, all the time, "doing even better for the country" as the President insists? His showing in France helps clarify the choice for those voters who are undecided about Trump and adds to a mountain of evidence about his character and fitness for office.

    I can just imagine what is on Donald Trump's most recent tax return:

    Доход - 12,060,630 Рублейа
    сходы - 6,270,300 Рублейа
    вычеты - 5,790,325 Рублейа
    лаготворительные взносы - 0
    Налог на прибыль - 5 Рублейа

    Deutsche Bank, Trump's biggest lender, has tax records Congress is seeking in subpoenas targeting the President's finances

    In 2014, Trump said Putin "contacted" him when the Miss America pageant was being held in Russia. "He was so nice,"Trump declared. In 2015, Trump told CNN, "I get along with him fine" and told MSNBC that Putin is "a leader, unlike what we have in this country." In 2016, Trump defended Putin after a British investigation concluded Putin "probably approved" the killing of a former spy. Trump also praised Putin for sending him a "very nice" Christmas card. In 2017, Trump contradicted the unanimous conclusions of our intelligence agencies by declaring, "Putin said Russia didn't meddle in our election and I believe him."

    When Putin removed hundreds of US personnel from our embassy in Moscow, Trump was not upset. He thanked Putin for helping the US reduce expenses. Then are the meetings he's had with Putin. He has gone to great lengths to ensure we never learn what they discussed. If the Trump Tower Moscow had been built, Trump would have given – given! – the penthouse suite to Putin. Now Trump wants Russia to rejoin the G-7. As for Russia's illegal occupation of, and annexation of, Crimea in 2014, Trump claims that was Obama's fault. Why is Trump so nice to Putin? There is only one possible answer: он предатель и русский сочувствующий.

    Trump privately clashed with G-7 leaders over inviting Russia to rejoin

    Tropical Storm Dorian has been upgraded. It is now a hurricane with 75-mph winds and is expected to hit eastern Puerto Rico in the next few hours. By the time it reaches Florida, winds will be 115 mph. The orange-skinned Tweeter-In-Chief, who has no compassion and no empathy for anyone other than himself, today called the San Juan Mayor "incompetent," Puerto Rico and its politicians "corrupt" and the island's political system "broken." The world's most pompous, narcissistic, egotistical buffoon then bragged, "I'm the best thing that's ever happened to Puerto Rico!" Yeah, Donald, the highlight of their life was you tossing rolls of paper towels to a few of them.

    A new Quinnipiac University poll is out. On Trump's handling of the economy, more people disapprove than approve. On Trump's handling of immigration, more people disapprove than approve. On Trump's handling of race relations, more people disapprove than approve. On Trump's handling of foreign relations, more people disapprove than approve. A majority also think Trump is racist. Trump, who has an ego larger than the Milky Way Galaxy, considers himself the greatest President who ever lived. Welcome to Trumpworld, the land of delusions.

    Warning signs for Trump as more Americans think economy is getting worse, not better

    Is this any way to treat members of our military who give birth while stationed in other countries? In the real world, no. Never. But in Trumpworld, everything is topsy-turvy.

    If Hollywood ever turns this into a movie, they can call it Redskins vs. Orange-Skin.

    Vain, pompous, narcissistic, egotistical Emperor Trump sees Fox News as an arm of his administration and he considers their reporters disloyal if they say anything negative about him. Lately they have indeed become more negative. There aren't many positive things that can be said about Emperor Trump. Perhaps none.

    Former Fox News reporter Carl Cameron says Trump is a 'cry-baby President who likes to bully instead of finding solutions'

    Hasidic Jews are plotting a "takeover"? Really? Once again the Republican party shows itself to be the party of racism, bigotry, discrimination, xenophobia and anti-Semitism. Is America "great" yet?

    In the 1920s and '30s, Bob Hope, Milton Berle, Al Jolson, Ted Healy, Red Skelton, Buster Keaton, Joe Penner, Roscoe Ates, Clifton Webb, George Murphy, Will Rogers, the Marx Brothers and many other entertainers performed in blackface in vaudeville shows. We should demand they all apologize.
