I'll bid 1 - Spades (Trump)

Trump is using a spade to dig an ever deeper hole!

No matter how ignorant and incompetent Donald Trump is, his true believers won't abandon him.

Trump plans to BORROW $2.4 Trillion to pay for a tax cut for the rich and cut or eliminate Social Security and Medicare to pay for it after the 2018 election. Wait - and see!

“The Budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome will become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance." - Cicero, 55 BCE

Here's some polling data taken from a number of outlets that Trump-bots will never credit.

At Bloomberg, Trump has edged out every other modern-American president for last place in approval ratings.

Trump’s dismal approval ratings IS where he outpaces the competition.

His "net" approval (subtracting disapproval) has been the worst every day of his presidency, and it's never been particularly close.

Currently he's within a single percentage point of same-day Gerald Ford in approval, but at -18.3, Trump’s net approval is 9 percentage points worse than Ford's.

Every other president was in positive territory at this point. Trump is not only last in net approval ratings, he's managed to do it in a time of prosperity, a factor that tends to increase a normal president's approval.

To become this unpopular, this fast, and to do it in relatively good times, is just breathtaking.

Trump's unpopularity has been massively underplayed in the media throughout his administration.

Trump’s net approval rating among rural voters has fallen from +16 percentage points to zero since the beginning of his presidency, according to Ipsos polling.

Additionally, Morning Consult found that Trump’s approval rating has fallen in all 50 states. Some of those states include Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Pennsylvania.

Fifty-one percent of voters in Nevada and Arizona disapproved of Trump.

Trump’s really IS in a class by himself (way down there at the bottom) when it comes his approval ratings.

The next time you hear a FAUX journalist claim that Trump’s approval ratings among Republicans just won’t budge—scream “Bullsh*t!”

Despite what you’ve been told, the popular vote loser’s approval ratings are strictly bottom of the barrel.

For Halloween, Shiro is going to be the Pope.

Donald "not so smart."

For years, Trump has said he is “a very smart guy” since he attended Wharton — a school he describes as “super genius stuff.”

Trump, who graduated from Wharton in 1968, was NOT on the dean’s list!

In 1968, The Daily Pennsylvanian published a list of the 56 students who were on the Wharton Dean’s List that year — Trump’s name is not among them.

Pages from the 212th Commencement show President Donald Trump as a 1968 Wharton graduate, but that he graduated without honors.

A copy of the lists 20 Wharton award and prize recipients, 15 cum laude recipients, four magna cum laude recipients and two summa cum laude recipients for the Class of 1968. Trump’s name appears nowhere on those lists.

“If he had done well, his name would have shown up.”

There are 366 listed 1968 Wharton graduates on Penn’s alumni database.

The Dean’s List of 56 students represents approximately the top 15 percent of the class.

The omission of Trump’s name in any category suggests that his academic record at Penn was not outstanding.

It seems that what dumb dumb Donald says about others is often pointing out his own weaknesses.

Emmy, Peach, Mint.

“I don’t think that Mueller would recommend impeachment,” says Alan Morrison, a veteran constitutional lawyer and dean for public-interest and public-service law at the George Washington University Law School. “That’s not his job,” Morrison tells The Nation. “Impeachment is a different process, with a different set of standards.” While it depends on what he comes up with, Morrison says, Mueller will probably issue a report outlining his findings and let Congress sort out the results.

Mueller is currently investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, as well as whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow in an effort to tilt the race in his favor.

The special counsel is investigating Trump in particular for obstruction of justice related to the firing of FBI director James Comey, as well as examining his role in crafting a misleading statement his son, Donald Trump Jr., released in response to reports that he met with a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton last June.

Though the prospect of an interview with Mueller could pose a risk for Trump, who's been known to act impulsively in the past, a White House official signaled to Politico that they had no reason to resist a face-to-face meeting between the president and the special counsel.

Reince Priebus, the former chief of staff to President Trump, was interviewed for a full day Friday by members of special counsel Robert S. Mueller’s team, Priebus’s lawyer said.

Federal investigators exploring Donald Trump's campaign links with Russia, are now on the Trump money trail.

And forget the CLEAN MONEY!

And who hired the actors to clap and cheer at Trump Rallys? COULD IT BE?

Time for Trump to Come Clean on Russian Connections and Money Laundering

The House Intelligence Committee sent one of its members to Cyprus this week as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, adding a new twist to the ongoing inquiry.

“Cyprus has a reputation as a laundromat for the Russians who are trying to avoid sanctions,” Rep. Mike Quigley told The Daily Beast. “It was extraordinarily helpful in understanding how the Russians launder money and why.”

About the flag... and mommy... and math

Trump is on record as saying:

“There’s nobody bigger or better at the military than I am.” “I know more about offense and defense than they will ever understand, believe me. Believe me. Than they will ever understand. Than they will ever understand.” (bullsh*t)

“I know more about ISIS [the Islamic State] than the generals do. Believe me.” (bullsh*t)

And, perhaps most disconcerting for South Korea: “There is nobody who understands the horror of nuclear more than me.” (bullsh*t)

Somehow I knew the "King of K-Mart" was a bowler. And, he spent 5 years in "high school." ([Sept. 59- June 60], [Sept. 60- June 61], [Sept. 61-June 62], [Sept. 62- June 63], [Sept. 63- June 64]) Trump received less than remarkable promotions his first four years. During that time, he rose only to the rank of supply sergeant while many fellow juniors were lieutenants.

One month into Trump’s fifth year (in the fall of 1963) Trump was 'removed from cammand.'
He was removed from the coveted post atop A Company and transferred to a (clerical) school staff job — with no command responsibilities whatsoever. He was moved out of the barracks and into the administration building. He was not popular.
Explanations vary as to what actually happened.

Yet Trump appeared confused about a longstanding military tradition on Wednesday night, despite his 5 years of supposed 'military' training.

While speaking with Fox News' Sean Hannity at an Air National Guard hangar in Middletown, Pennsylvania, Trump paused as loudspeakers began playing the tune, "Retreat," in the distance. This announces the lowering of the Stars and Stripes (retiring of the colors).

It's part of a firmly rooted tradition that predates the American Revolutionary War; the US military tune signals the end of the official duty day on military installations.

Trump's Vietnam experience is beyond question. (it is?)

His fight for equality in housing is well-known. (it is?)

His patriotism is beyond doubt. (it is?)

“Putin has no respect for our president whatsoever. He’s got a tremendous popularity in Russia, they love what he’s doing, they love what he represents,” Trump said. “I was over in Moscow two years ago and I will tell you – you can get along with those people and get along with them well. You can make deals with those people. Obama can’t.”

And his knowledge of the flag surpasses that of any academic. (it does?)

Trump REALLY knows what it's like to be middle class...

Dad only left him tens of millions. Donald's grandfather, Fred Trump, born Friedrich Drumpf, in Kallstadt, Germany, in 1869, had an estate worth $500,000 in today’s dollars when he died in Queens on May 30, 1918, at age 49.

His mom, Elizabeth, left him hundreds of millions.

Trump's father, Frederick Christ "Fred" Trump, made a sizable fortune by building and selling housing for American soldiers and their families in World War II. It was at his father's real estate company that Trump got his start in business. In 1971, he took control of his father's apartment rental company, Elizabeth Trump & Son Co., and later on, he renamed it The Trump Organization. Trump stuck mostly with real estate investments during this period, particularly condo associations, huge apartment buildings and Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-backed housing, all in the New York metropolitan area.

It is official!

It is as official as the "official visit" of the Deputy Worthy Grand Matron! (inside joke)

Trump is a f*cking moron.

Trump, following reports that Rex Tillerson called him a "f*cking moron" earlier this year, told Forbes in an interview released Tuesday that he has a higher IQ than his secretary of state.

Trump is insecure (about that, too). (He needs a "Watchman of Shepherds" - another inside joke...) There are a Plenty-O-Oddfellows in this world. Check out the "Household of Ruth" while you are on that link. Ruth wore a Fez?

Trump was making “a joke” when he challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test in an interview with Forbes. (The coward backed down!)

Trump's high IQ is a myth!

It is one of 5 myths the the Cult of Trump believes.

Because Trumpsters are SO simple-minded, Trump SEEMS smart. (He isn't!)

Many Trumpsters watch FOX (Faux Snews)

Trump's story has no happy ending. He does NOT resurrect the middle class from death by debt!

Far from it! He borrows against your future to give the rich a tax break!

Every Trump supporter needs a BTLE butt plug of their own!
