This just reminded me of the "Holby is a serial killer living in a trailer park" dream...

Why are there videos of Giuliani impersonating a woman? I'd like to know the context.

Edited for typo.

He's done it multiple times (cross-dressing/drag/female impersonator.) I'd say maybe he enjoys it.

I had a dream a few weeks back where I was an advisor to Donald Trump and spent all my time trying to advice him, but he wouldn't listen to me.

This happened the night after I had a puffy Cheeto craving and ate entirely too many out of a party size bag.

True story.

This headline is just so 2018.

Hatch to McCain: Invite Trump to your funeral

McCain was reported as saying he wanted Pence but not Trump at his funeral.

The Koch's have always been Never Trumpers.

Immigrants are generally good for cheap Koch labor.

Bill Gates describes interesting encounters with Trump

Quote:
Gates also said he discussed science with Trump on two separate occasions, where he says the President questioned him on the difference between HIV and HPV.

"Both times he wanted to know if there was a difference between HIV and HPV so I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other," Gates said.

:shock:

Quote:
Taking audience questions about his interactions with Trump at a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation meeting, the former Microsoft honcho said he first met Trump in December 2016. He told the audience that Trump had previously come across his daughter, Jennifer, at a horse show in Florida.

"And then about 20 minutes later he flew in on a helicopter to the same place," Gates said, according to video of the event broadcast by MSNBC late Thursday. "So clearly he had been driven away but he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter.

"Anyway, so when I first talked to him, it was actually kind of scary how much he knew about my daughter's appearance. Melinda (Gates' wife) didn't like that too well."

:salmon:

:roll: Yeah, Trump knew more about young Ms. Gates appearance than he did about policy, vaccines, HPV vs HIV, among other things. Gates also spoke rather humorously about Trump's habit of speaking in the 3rd person. I've always thought that was a huge red flag for mental/personality issues.

Túrin Turambar agrees with that.

The HIV/HPV thing is so absurd I find it hard to believe. If it was coming from someone at all less credible than Bill Gates.... good lord.....

Yeah, um, here's the ELI5 version: HPV causes rough little lumps called warts to appear on your body. Sometimes, it also causes a more serious disease called cancer. HIV causes a very bad disease called AIDS that can't be cured. There's a shot for HPV. There's no shot for HIV.

Now is that so hard?

Although an important distinction (HIV vs HPV), his confusion/poor grasp of important issues is a pattern I find more concerning. He gets countries mixed up (and doesn't seem to care/mind that he mixes them up). Countries like North and South Korea. He doesn't seem to care that he doesn't understand what agencies do or how they work or that he has not been elected King and that the agencies are not there to serve him personally. That is fairly evident in the way he has treated Jeff Sessions, James Comey, etc... I find the whole thing exhausting. The presidency is a job that requires someone with quality control skills and attention to detail. He is very sloppy and careless.

Case in point, he welcomed the First Lady Melanie home. Did he get another wife?
