It looks like Trump's crowd is several hundred people larger in size. And Obama appears to have traveled with the smallest one.

re: The Offical Trump Presidency Thread: Don Jr & Russians

My First Big Boy Trip

By Donald J. Trump.
Natalie Matthews-Ramo



I’m getting ready for my big foreign trip.

I will be strongly protecting American interests—that’s what I like to do!

The airplane ride is hours and hours. I get lots of screen time! No one wants to give me my phone, but I shout and shout until they say OK.

On the plane, the pilot pins shiny wings to my jacket. Yay! I like planes as much as I like trucks!

Our first stop is Saudi Arabia. Jared says it is like a beach, big and hot and full of sand. No girls are allowed on the beach.

They eat crazy food in Saudi Arabia, like hummus! But I get to order a steak with ketchup, just the way I like it.

Mr. Steve tells me Muslims are the bad guys, but General Jim says I have to be nice to them. It’s confusing!

I wish General Mike was here. I’m not allowed to play with him anymore.

After Saudi Arabia we go to Israel, where the best Jews live. My friend Bibi sneaks into my room after dark and tells me scary stories about the bad ISIS men. I can’t wait to go home and tell my friends Sergey and Sergey.

I don’t want to go to the sad museum.

In Italy, they call pizza PIZZA! My teachers tell me that if I sit by myself and think about the long-term economic and security benefits of our multilateral North Atlantic defense regime, I can have pepperoni.

I get to meet the “pope”!

Don’t tell anyone, but before I left I was a little bit scared about my trip.

What if the other leaders laughed at me?

What if I had to touch Melania?

What if I had an accident?

But Ivanka said I should be brave. “Who’s my big brave boy?” Ivanka asked me.

“I am,” I said. “I’m a big brave boy.”

It’s been an exciting trip, but when it’s over, I’ll be glad to be home at Mar-a-Lago, where I get as much ice cream as I want.

We've gone from a somewhat responsible adult to a complete man child. Fuck you, America.

Yeah, and then in the midst of all this Trump bullshit, the fact that Erdogan was able to order his goons to beat up American protesters in DC, with no repercussions is probably the most maddening thing.

How the fuck was this allowed, why didn't the cops do anything, and why weren't Erdo's goons arrested? What the ever living fuck is going on!!!

This is the kind of shit we should bomb Trukey over, or at least some major sanctions, until an apology, along with forking over some of these goons for jail time. Fuck. This one makes me so livid!

Seriously, think about that - a foreign dictator was able to beat up American protesters on American soil and fucking get away with it? Fuuucccckkkk YOOUUUUU!!!

Looks like Obama had trips with 500+, Bush with 700+, and Clinton with 1000+, but that is just with a little bit of googling, so the numbers could be off. But yeah, Trump seems to take way more people than are needed, just like past presidents. Or is that extra 200 people the real kicker?

How about this then?
500 (Obama) + 700 (Bush) +1200 (Clinton) / 3 = 800 (average). 1000 (Trump) - 800 (average) = 200.

close enough?

Trump defenders remind me of those generals that have big smiles on their faces and clap enthusiastically as Kim Jon-un waves like their lives depend on it.

Trump has his own towers in Turkey. If you're thinking of enlisting in the army and going out to defend any of his towers from potential attacks, you need to pause and reflect.

re: The Offical Trump Presidency Thread: Don Jr & Russians

interesting...

Did Rod Rosenstein let it slip that he may have been witness to a crime?



So basically, Rosenstein indicated that discussing Trump (or a Trump surrogate) telling him to write the letter suggesting that Comey be fired would fall under a criminal investigation, which implies that he thinks that being told to write that letter is potentially part of a crime.

Can stop! Won't stop!!!

Trump told aides firing Flynn was a mistake

Quote:
One adviser close to Trump said he’s heard Trump defend the general using the exact words described in reports of memos written by former FBI director James Comey recording his conversations with the president – and that Trump has told people inside the White House he wished the investigation would go away.

Here's a video to make you feel good. The suggestion is that Erdogan was in the car, and asked for the protesters to be stopped. Because this kind of thing doesn't matter in Turkey, he might have simply said, 'hey, go beat the shit out of those people'.

Where's that chart? President ... Paul Ryan? Has anyone done a writeup on how far down the line impeachment would be expected to go?

Has Trump ever said anything nice about Obama. I'm a little shocked by the shear number of negative things he has to say.
