Taran Killam Confirms Trump ‘Struggled To Read’ At ‘SNL’

Quote
Recalling the experience to Brooklyn Magazine, the actor said, “He was … everything you see. What you see is what you get with him, really. I mean, there was no big reveal. He struggled to read at the table read, which did not give many of us great confidence. Didn’t get the jokes, really. He’s just a man who seems to be powered by bluster.”

Remember the ethics pledge all the Trump staff had to sign that banned them from lobbying for five years?

When a lobbying job comes up just ask for a waiver and Trump will give it to you.

Trump's Base Support Begins To Erode

Analysis of Gallup trend...

But it isn't just Gallup...
Quote
Even Rasmussen now has Trump down at 43% approval, his lowest rating yet.

For years Rasmussen has specialized in various synthetic or questionable metrics, most of which have the effect of bolstering favored candidates.

...“strongly disapprove” is at 47%. Almost half of Rasmussen’s already skewed sample “strongly disapproves” of President Trump.

But things aren't all bad.  Marist notes...
 
83% is still a lot.

The image of the graph with "annotations" should be called something like Inside the Vaporous Mind of A Trumpskull. But it sounds like many trying to remain Trumpskulls are already resorting to "at least he's doing better than Obama" (regardless of the absolute lack of any actual consideration of anything resembling facts that might come anywhere within the realm of relevance to that conclusion of course).

Trump Collapsing With Base (SAD!)

Quote
As we wait to see whether Donald Trump’s unpopularity will allow a Democrat to squeak through and win a thoroughly Republican district in suburban Atlanta, let’s look at an eye-popping new poll. President Trump’s popularity has collapsed among a key base constituency: Russians...

Boy, they must have cut a lot of players in 2 years :-P :-P

How many purposely boycotted this time?  I thought it wasn't even a dozen.

I suspect the 2015 version includes many NE staff and org members who just weren't all that into it this time around.

The NY Times says 34 (out of 45) players attended this year.

And Brady (Quarterback) didn't boycott.  He claimed he had personal business.  I sort of thought that it was 6 boycotting.

It's just like the Inauguration photos.  Trump had more.  It's just that they were dressed like stairs :-P :-P :-P :-P

The Patriots organization tweeted out that two years ago they had 40 football staff people that were on the stairs that were seated on the lawn this time.  Funny, all the effort that people go through to protect a fragile ego.

As for the number boycotting, I've seen a number that ~30+ people that were invited chose not to attend.  That obvious includes more than just players as an NFL roster is only 53 players.

Cheers,
Andy

The Trump picture includes only the players, and the previous one includes players and staff. The staff attended, but wasn't included in that particular photo so they weren't comparable. You can actually see the seated staff members in the foreground of the second picture.

It is true that fewer Patriots attended this year, and that at least some of them didn't go because they didn't feel welcome in the Trump White House. But the difference is not as dramatic as suggested by the comparison of the pictures.

Now the NY Times is quoting a Patriots tweet that says 50 players attended in 2015 and 34 in 2017, aside from staff members.

That's still a drop.

I offer an advance apology and warning.  What follows is not for the faint of heart or the thin skinned.

Ahh!  Numbers don't matter in dealing with Crump.  Likely everyone who attended in '17 were somewhat coerced.

This turd you have as president is simply an f'n pile of dung.  I can honestly say I have hated no other human more that this piece of crotch itch you have running your government.

His recent attack on Canada regarding dairy products is TOTALLY undergrounded.  His own administration's research shows the problem is due to overproduction in the US.  So what is this *****'s solution?  Attack Canada?  what the heck!  We import many times more dairy from the US than we export.  how the f'k can we be the problem?

Who is this ass's anus not going to blame for the internal problems of the US?

Good lord, don't you have ammunition down there?  God knows there are enough guns.  For Pete's sake, use one of them!!!!!  Please, put the world out of this misery.

I'm not entirely buying the CDN position on the milk, although Justin is quite right in saying there is no free market in agricultural products. Apparently Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand all have issues with CDN dairy policy.

Here in BC, we're waiting for the softwood lumber dispute to flare up again.

Have a look at this -

Have a look at the graph and text on page 3 and the source of that data.  You may not be a Trudeau fan (who is), but in this case he's not making it up.

Got it. But isn't the American dairymen's complaint that re-classification and re-pricing Canadian SNF products have undercut them?
