Trump has an objectively terrible golf swing.
I feel the Douche is sputtering OUT.
But IT's still getting birdies. Well, the Bird Fingers.

T-Rump has bigger problems than Manafort
Could a Footnote in the Papadopoulos Announcement Bring Down the Whole Trump Campaign?
Monday’s revelation that former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents about his efforts to arrange meetings between the Trump campaign and the Russian government has delivered some explosive details about the Russian effort to help get Trump elected president.
However, buried within the announcement of Papadopoulos’s guilty plea is a key footnote that may implicate the high-level officials within the Trump campaign in knowledge of collusion with the Russian government.
And Manafort is a BIG problem
Why Paul Manafort Is Going to Be Under Immense Pressure to Testify Against the President
Manafort, a veteran Republican political operative, played a key role in Trump’s rise to power. He served as middleman between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in 2015 and 2016. The charges against him and a business partner, Rick Gates, bring allegations of criminal activity into Trump’s inner circle for the first time.
The 12-count indictment, which includes conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and making false statements, enhances special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s reputation for "shock and awe" tactics.
The charges strengthen the notion that Trump collaborated with Russia to gain the presidency and gives the lie to Trump’s claim that the Russa investigation is a "hoax." More than any other person who could have been indicted, Manafort can testify about Trump’s Russia connections.
Mueller Puts Down a Marker

Financial Times: “The allegations in the federal indictment of Paul Manafort and Richard Gates — even considered in isolation — are enough to frighten any friend of America. If they are true, Donald Trump’s campaign manager from March to August 2016 — a period encompassing his nomination by the Republican party — was a criminal. Not a criminal in some abstract or technical sense: Mr Manafort is accused of laundering millions of dollars, evading taxes, and concealing his role as a lobbyist for a foreign government.”
“The latter point is the most alarming. It raises the possibility that a foreign power, without knowledge of the electorate, influenced the policy of the party that ultimately won the presidency.”
In the news today:
George Papadopoulos guilty plea shows Donald Trump Jr. may be incredibly vulnerable
They're coming for you Jr. They are coming for you!!!
Now that Trump knows about Papadopoulos, I predict something outrageous in the very near future.
The stupidest thing he could do is fire Mueller, so that may be exactly what he does.
You're not the only one predicting that. I find it hard to believe he is THAT dense. But we will see.
