    I assume you all saw this a couple of weeks ago:

    I mean, this is just so far outside the normal range of human behaviour that it momentarily made me wonder it was really OK to hate him. His brain is actually broken, isn't it? Like, just completely fucked. Nobody with anything approaching normal intellectual or emotional faculties would have done that.

    Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world...and the Jewish people in Israel love him....

    ....like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God...But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for.....

    Which surely has nothing at all to do with his popularity among actual, literal Nazis.

    "We can’t let these people, these so called egg-heads--and by the way, I guarantee you my IQ is much higher than theirs, alright. Somebody said the other day, ‘Yes, well the intellectuals–‘ I said, ‘What intellectuals? I’m smarter than they are, many of people in this audience are smarter than they are."

    “You know, I’m, like, a smart person. I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years,” Trump told Fox News last December.

    Trump says he has "one of the great memories of all time"

    Asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” who he talks with consistently about foreign policy, Trump responded, “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things."

    " ... I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!"

    The very first sentence in that big list is just comedy gold by itself. "I'm the most modest man in the world! I actually won the World's Modestest Person championships five years running! I have an enormous ruby-encrusted trophy to prove it!!!!"

    Interesting take on Trump and Jews: tl,dr is that he believes all the old anti-Semitic stereotypes but sees them as admirable traits.

    Trump latest: apparently he's suggested, on more than one occasion, that hurricanes headed towards the USA could be stopped by nuking them:

    I can't help but find this grimly humorous. It's just like something a war-obsessed ten-year-old boy would say.

    Apologies if that's been posted before (or even if I posted it myself in fact) I'm not going back through one hundred and thirty odd pages of Trump stuff to check. Anyway, worth repeating if only for the amazing rhyme "He is a very strong and stable genius, of all the US presidents he is the Mussolini-est"

    yeah, it's nutty and yeah he's an idiot....BUT it's actually been debated in the past:

    Trump didn't invent this idea. The notion that detonating a nuclear bomb over the eye of a hurricane could be used to counteract convection currents dates to the Eisenhower era, when it was floated by a government scientist.

    The idea keeps resurfacing in the public even though scientists agree it won't work. The myth has been so persistent that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. government agency that predicts changes in weather and the oceans, published an online fact sheet for the public under the heading "Tropical Cyclone Myths Page."
    The page states: "Apart from the fact that this might not even alter the storm, this approach neglects the problem that the released radioactive fallout would fairly quickly move with the tradewinds to affect land areas and cause devastating environmental problems. Needless to say, this is not a good idea."
    About 3 weeks after Trump's 2016 election, National Geographic published an article titled, "Nuking Hurricanes: The Surprising History of a Really Bad Idea." It found, among other problems, that:

    Dropping a nuclear bomb into a hurricane would be banned under the terms of the Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union. So that could stave off any experiments, as long as the U.S. observes the terms of the treaty.

    So it's not even an original terrible idea?

    To be honest it sounds like the premise of one of those shitty "so bad it's good" deliberate B-movies that were popular in the wake of Snakes On A Plane. "From the people who brought you Sharknado... get ready for NUCLICANE!!!"

    One of Trump's most consistent talking points for the past decade was how Obama and Bush kept getting the US into "stupid wars", and how he'd get us out of all those stupid wars and bring our troops home. He talks with a bully's bluster but actually doesn't want to get tied up militarily all over the world. He never liked war-hawk Bolton, who was kind of forced on him by the Fox News/neo-con wing of the GOP (whose support Trump needed).

    So in the end, it's not surprising at all that Trump would eventually dump Bolton.
