Trump Sends US Troops to Install Razor Wire on Mexico Border

Trump Sends US Troops to Install Razor Wire on Mexico Border:  As a purported defense against Central American migrants, President Trump has dispatched US troops to the US-Mexican border who have started erecting fences and laying out very sharp razor wire, an action which many are dismissing as a cruel “political stunt” on the eve of midterm elections.  OK, but in his defense, President Trump knows those migrants have been traveling on a long, hard journey and perhaps the “razor” wire is because he knows many of them will need a shave when they finally arrive.

Republican Candidate’s Children Warn Against Voting for Him:  While enormously popular in his district, Republican candidate Steve West - who has, in the past, stated be believes “Hitler was right” and who doesn’t believe Jews, gays and people of color deserve even basic civil rights - now has his own family, including his children - warning voters in Missouri against electing their “fanatic” father to the state assembly.  Good grief, I’m pretty sure there’s a name for people like him, and I believe its “moderate Republican.”  What puzzles me is, with a resume like his, why isn’t he already working in the White House?

Melania Trump Runs Up $95K Bill for One Day at Hotel:  A federal spending report shows that Melania Trump racked up a $95,000 hotel bill for a single day at the Semiramis Intercontinental Cairo during her visit to Egypt last month for a room that was only $550 a night.  Good grief, sounds like all this “draining the swamp” the Trump’s are doing for us can get quite expensive.

$95k? Damn, those Egyptians sure know how to make money off a minibar.

Razor wire? Yeah. We’ve got an entire political party who thinks we have to resurrect Patton to deal with a group of unarmed refugees a thousand miles from our border.

I seem to recall that being called Concertina wire, for obvious reasons. But it's for damn sure, it ain't because it makes pretty music!

There's a candidate out West – Arizona, maybe, whose SIX (as I recall) brothers and sisters appear in an ad against him. Thanksgiving dinners must be veeeery interestring.

Wonder how long it will be before Melanomia dumps tRump after he's out of office. I'd say some lawyer somewhere is already working on it.

My guess is that her contract requires the ruse to continue and that the deed may already have occurred with final payment contingent on keeping up appearances until he exits.

I can't see her lasting another four years, although she is certainly no angel herself.  Like him, she's a wothless, self-indulgent piece of shit - a modern-day Marie Antoinette-type who has verbally shown her true colors many times of late.

Actually, the information about the FLOTUS is somewhat incorrect. Yes, it was a $95,050 bill, but it was for SIX HOURS -- she didn't even spend the night there. No breakdown of the bill -submitted days before she actually arrived -- was given. Story here along with information about the cost of golf cart rentals charged to the public purse -- $300,000 as of September.

"$300,000 as of September"

More than a lot of hardworking people see in a year....
