He's right.
It's completely predictable by everyone.  No chaos here.

At first we gave you Ron Paul. A slightly strange career politician who could intelligently give us a small government and you said "no!"

Then we offered Rand Paul. Who was much of the same, and then you said "no!"

Now we give you a Trump, who will incompetently tear at big government until there's nothing left. You should have listened.

Logically, you should have gone for RuPaul.

Kushner: Trump campaign was too dysfunctional to collude

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/kushner-says-trump-campaign-was-too-dysfunctional-to-collude/2017/08/01/d012f64c-76de-11e7-8c17-533c52b2f014_story.html?utm_term=.987c1ab1bf38

Their defense so far has been: We just weren't smart enough/organized enough to collude.  Really!  You gotta believe us!  We're just a bunch of idiots!

Totally not gonna have an issue with this.  What I laugh at is this:

Quote
Sanders criticized Democrats and the news media for being obsessed with the investigation into whether Trump associates colluded with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.
Welcome to the Clinton scandal, GOP.  Isn't fun from the other side, now is it?

I don't think anyone here needs 8 different uncut election coverage videos.
Most of us are likely to know by now that Trump won.

Yeah, I sometimes gotta go back and watch the Liberals losing face as the evening progressed ..... omG, lol

Why do you want Trump's Twitter not to be treated seriously?
The exact reason for this is a bit difficult to explain, because it's a mix of gut feeling and unsubstantiated thoughts and actual research. Take this post with a grain of salt. Oh, and apologies in advance if I make no fucking sense.

Twitter has been my research area for just under a year now, and one of the most important early observations I've made about it is that it changes how you express your views (this is hardly a breakthrough; there is general consensus that this does happen). They become shallower and more binary. It also hugely encourages homophily and echo chambers. It's simply not a good means of establishing a person's thoughts. So, by assuming that Trump's Twitter is always an accurate representation of his thoughts, we are effectively creating a radicalised Trump. I worry that, to an extent, that narrative then turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy. Everyone, dissenters and supporters, expects Trump to be more radical than Trump really is, so he pushes himself to be more radical.

But also, he somehow manages to redirect media attention to what is effectively shitposting, and not even particularly good shitposting. Whenever he needs attention diverted for something, he just drops a big ol' fart on Twitter and the media become preoccupied for a week. I'm fine(-ish) with taking some of Trump's tweets seriously - I would say that some of his tweets are quite clearly shorthand announcements of policy and such; but I'm strongly opposed to the current frenzied state of affairs in which everything he says on Twitter is of utmost importance.

Fake news!

Can you imagine if Trump got impeached before his first year?

I mean, dying is one thing but impeached?  He'd go down as literally the worst president in current history.

in fairness, the consensus legal opinion seems to be that this is just a procedural step toward getting subpoenas and whatnot.

still stoked, though.

Trump's body language has always been a very strong indicator of what he's thinking. Look at him when he makes his threats. Arms crossed almost too tightly to be comfortable, his eyes are going all over the place trying to lock in on someone. As far as I can tell, this is the first time since he took office that he's shown himself to be legit scared.
