    The Mad Hatter is in need of a...Tea Party...?

    -Jesus could be Speaker of the House.
    (That will be Jesus of Nazareth, not Jesus, an LA taxi driver who once ripped me off).

    -"“We did nothing wrong,” Trump said. “This is all Biden’s stuff … I was never indicted. You practically never heard the word.”"

    -"Trump tells Republicans to focus on watching votes being counted on election night instead of getting out to vote:"You don't have to vote, don't worry about voting. The voting, we got plenty of votes."
    (Does he mean the votes printed by Bannon and Stone and smuggled in to the count under cover of darkness?)

    -"Trump also remarked that “U.S.” and “us” are spelled the same and noted that he’d “just picked that up.”“Has anyone ever thought of that before?” he asked the crowd. “Couple of days, I’m reading, and it said ‘us.’ and I said, you know, when you think about it, us equals U.S."
    (And leave out America...)

    -"On meeting Viktor Orban: "Trump: I was very honored, there’s a man, Viktor Orbán. He’s the leader of Turkey"...

    -"Trump says he will prevent immigrants who “don’t like our religion” from entering the United States".
    What is Trump's religion? Trump, Money, Publicity, or all three?

    -"We don't get scared. I don't mind being Nelson Mandela."
    Words fail me.

    -"Last week, he told reporters outside a New York City courtroom that his Mar-a-Lago estate was the “most expensive house probably in the world”.
    Note to Trump: Mar-a-Lago is a club, not a residence.

    Litigation, litigation, litigation -has there ever been a man so addicted to litigation? And who is going to pay the fees for the lawyers lining up to be the next roster of (probably unpaid) legal representatives?

    And is this not a shameless attempt to swindle investors out of their capital? Their reaction? To sue him. Memo to High School leavers -be a lawyer, you will always be in work, though you might not always get more than your expenses paid....

    " Donald Trump has sued two co-founders of his newly public Trump Media & Technology Group Corp., claiming they set the company up improperly and shouldn’t get any stock in it.
    "In the latest legal skirmish over who gets how much of the hot but flailing meme stock, Trump alleges that Andy Litinsky and Wes Moss violated an agreement about the setup and don’t deserve their 8.6% stake, currently valued at $606 million.
    The lawsuit, which was filed on March 24 in Florida state court and hasn’t previously been reported, comes after the pair brought their own suit against the former president in Delaware Chancery Court over their promised stake in the social media company."

    And then there is the by now predictable links to a suspect in a criminal case-

    "Donald Trump’s social media company Trump Media managed to go public last week only after it had been kept afloat in 2022 by emergency loans provided in part by a Russian-American businessman under scrutiny in a federal insider-trading and money-laundering investigation."

    The problems with financing his fines

    "led Trump Media to take emergency loans, including from an entity called ES Family Trust, which opened an account with Paxum Bank, a small bank registered on the Caribbean island of Dominica that is best known for providing financial services to the porn industry.Through leaked documents, the Guardian has learned that ES Family Trust operated like a shell company for a Russian-American businessman named Anton Postolnikov, who co-owns Paxum Bank and has been a subject of a years-long joint federal criminal investigation by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) into the Trump Media merger."

    Presumably if Trump wins in November, and he is out of prison, ex-con Navarro will be made either Secretary of State or maybe even Vice-President?

    "“And on June 14, 1946, God looked down on his planned paradise, and said: ‘I need a caretaker,’” booms a video that Trump shared on his Truth Social account, and that has been played at some of his rallies.“So God gave us Trump.”
    The video, made by Dilley Meme Team, a group of Trump supporters, continues:
    “God said: ‘I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, fix this country, work all day, fight the Marxists, eat supper, then go to the Oval Office and stay up past midnight at a meeting of the heads of state.’ So God made Trump.”
    Christian nationalists embrace Trump as their savior – will they be his? (yahoo.com)

    Something has happened in the US over the years, and I cannot explain it to any degree of satisfaction. The mere fact that some people believe this raises more questions than answers. I can only assume most Americans who vote are not so deluded. But at the same time I feel there is a lost generation there somewhere, and I see no means whereby this portion of the American public can be reconciled with the rest, the chasm of reason is too wide.

    Is this going to be a daily occurrence now?

    "Donald Trump said Monday that Jesus Christ would be the only viable candidate for speaker of the House".

    Only Jesus Christ could be a successful speaker of the House: Donald Trump - Raw Story


    WHAT ABOUT JOSEPH, MARY AND THE WEE DONKEY?
    I think its time this trinity had a go at government. On current form a donkey would do a better job than Mike Johnson, and may even certify the results of the 2024 election, given that Johnson refused the certification in 2020 and is probably going to reject the next one too. Yeah I know about the mascots, but the US is not in need of a mascot, or a jackass for the matter, as there are plenty of them to go round.

    And here was me thinking the man is a slob, walking around without buttoning his jacket- but not according to Herr Miller-

    "“The most stylish president and first lady in our lifetimes are Donald Trump and Melania Trump,” said Miller, "
