Does anyone like Lieberman other than John McCain?

And how did Lieberman, 75 years old and with no law enforcement experience, become a credible candidate for leading the FBI?

This didn't come out of left field, it came out of a field 1,000 miles away.

Trump knows who he is. I'm sure that's the beginning and end of it.

And I'm sure he'll get the job.

Actually, as pointed out earlier, Lieberman works for a law firm that represents Trump - it's a pretty obvious choice when you know that.
And by "obvious", I mean obvious for Trump, since it's cronyism at best and idiocy at worst.

If we get hit by another hurricane, Trump's immediate response will be to fire Al Roker.

I just read his history on Wikipedia and I see nothing that prepares him for the challenges the FBI faces in the 21st century.

Sounds like the candidates for every other position Trump has managed to fill. I see nothing different happening here.

Trump’s Israel Visit: Major Security in Jerusalem, Bethlehem
http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/tru...hlehem-n760761

by Paul Goldman and F. Brinley Bruton



JERUSALEM — You've heard of armored vehicles for world leaders and A-list celebrities. Now President Donald Trump is about to get an armored hotel suite.

A huge security operation has been launched that aims to envelop the president and his 1,000-person entourage during his visit to Jerusalem and Bethlehem next week.

Trump's accommodation during the second stop on his trip will be a bomb-proof, poison gas-proof and bulletproof hotel room built to withstand the collapse of the entire building, according to Sheldon Ritz, operations manager for Jerusalem's King David Hotel.

Stop defending him. Racism was almost gone in America, then he came along and brought it with him.

Wheels are up and AF1 is gone..

I'm sure that the Trump folks are hoping for a quiet 10 days while he's gone, and nothing to happen.
bring the focus back to what he's trying to do..

How will it go?

Can't wait for someone in the Middle East to do this to him.

Lieberman hates Muslims. They know Democrats despise him. He'd be a "yes" man to Trump because he has no underlying principles. Plus, I'm sure Trump has seen Lieberman on Fox endorsing McCain over Obama and LOVED it.

I'd imagine Trump not being able to duck in time as he looks out of shape.
Unless they throw a drumstick at him - then he'll catch it in his mouth.

The room is $5700 a night. Is that your concern? Should the president stay down the road at the Motel 6?

Sure, post a pic of the POTUS as he's sucking taxpayers dry on Martha's fucking Vineyard. Who paid for those frozen treats, huh?

Then he'll say "No one but me has ever endured such violence and hostility in the Middle East!"

And what about the other 232 rooms that are being use by his family, secret service, etc.? It is my goddamn concern when you're bleeding the taxpayers dry and point fingers at other politician's expenses when you don't do crap to cut your own and are also cutting off programs to the less fortunate.

Only the presidential suites are 5700 (and bomb proof), not all 232 rooms. Feel a little better?

Ivanka Trump to hold roundtable discussion with Saudi women about women's economic issues.

Can’t Wait to Hear How Ivanka Trump’s Roundtable for Saudi Arabian Women Goes

Ivanka knows Saudi women can only work places where there are no men, right? Ivan knows Saudi women are not allowed to drive right?

What the fuck does Ivanka know about household "economic issues" in general?

WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”
