Damn I hope that's false...

I know his first weekend has been unhinged, but wow I hope he can pull himself together. Otherwise, A guy with incredibly thin skin is going to find it "interesting" to hold what is probably one of the most criticized positions on the globe.

Shhh! Don’t tell anybody but I have good info Wynonna is going to kick Ashley’s  *** ( and she can I tell ya! ) for her unhinged remarks at the vagina march. Again, Shhh!

None of this should be considered fact from the  Poster or Forum. I disavow any connection with above post or production of such...just a quirk of the interwebs.

No, there's nothing in that Secret Service agent article that correlates with what is said in the New Yorker article.

She's not "the leaker."  But you knew that.

I am trying in vain to find any connection at all between any of that and the topic.

If it's true that Ashley Judd is 'unhinged', I probably won't vote for her for president.

Any noise will do to prevent an unanswered "score" against the home team--doesn't have to really even mean anything, just has to be noise that sounds like objection, and it counts as an Alternative Fact™ response to the issue for those who have ... well, whose intellectual/ideological posture allows them to function in the realm of Alternative Facts™.

On the ironic side, if the numbers were off that much, it would likely impact a number of race outcomes, including Trump's own. Shoot, we'd be best to just conduct the vote again. Esp once you factor in the hacking mess. Think he'd like that?

Nah, this is just blind vanity on Trump's part. We must all think him as great as he thinks himself.

Yup. This is what it looks like when a fool presumes that reality must accommodate the fool's personal sentiments, and only other similarly-minded fools have an adequately casual relationship with the truth/honesty to convince themselves they don't see it.

You may have read that Sergei Mikhailov, a high Russian intelligence official, has been arrested and charged with treason for being a US agent.

TPM Editor Josh Marshal doesn't say it out loud but... I will:  Did Team Trump alert Russia about our mole?


Wow, It Gets Bigger


Just losing an agent that highly placed would be a big set back. Intentionally betraying one... ouch.

All presumptions of innocence to the Trump team, of course.

More Inauguration crowd size unbalancedness...

Trump Lashed Out at National Park Service Chief in Phone Call

Quote
From the write-up by two of the profession's masters, Karen Tumulty and Juliet Eilperin ...

   
Quote
In a Saturday phone call, Trump personally ordered Reynolds to produce additional photographs of the previous day’s crowds on the National Mall, according to three individuals who have knowledge of the conversation. The president believed that they might prove that the media had lied in reporting that attendance had been no better than average.
Later in the article ...

Quote
    Reynolds was taken aback by Trump’s request, but did secure some additional aerial photographs and forwarded them to the White House through normal channels in the Interior Department, the sources said. The photos, however, did not prove Trump’s contention that the crowd size was upwards of 1 million.

I don't even think Obama's inauguration drew 1 million people to the Mall.  I don't think that many will fit.

On the other hand, Trump has experience with large numbers. 

Like when he lost a billion dollars.
