Silly me, yesterday I thought that the Argentinian Trump Tower story was just a misunderstanding, but it seems that it is, indeed, yet another example of the yuge conflicts of interest Trump is facing now. It looks like (i) the Macri's access to the Trump entourage was through Trump's business partner in Argentina; (ii) the day after the election, the construction of the Trump Tower Buenos Aires - which was delayed due to permits - received a go ahead. Macri and Trump, by the way, were longtime acquaintances (and adversaries), so there's some sense that Macri was trying to mend fences. This twitter thread (which is well sourced) is very interesting:

Gee, sure am glad we didn't let that oh-so-corrupt Hillary Clinton become president. Really dodged a big bullet there, yep.

You don't get to 270 EC votes without fake news.

One day we'll wake up and Patrick Duffy will be in the shower with President Clinton.

At least there will be continuity in one field:

Quote:
Mr. Obama may not, however, need worry about his legacy with respect to Syria. If Mr. Donald Trump's campaign statements on Syria are any guide to forthcoming policy, the Trump administration will merely drop the hand-wringing, empty rhetoric about human suffering and formally convey Syria to Russia, Iran, and Bashar al-Assad. If this is how President Trump decides to proceed he will only be accelerating and completing the Syria work of his predecessor. Whatever the new president may do with respect to health care, trade, immigration, alliances, and other contentious issues, the direct translation of his campaign rhetoric on Syria into action would amount to policy continuity.
Moscow, Washington, and the Wreckage of Syria

Not impossible this person is right and Trump does indeed lack any ideology. What's more dangerous then, a person with a dangerous ideology that you might keep in checks, or a person without any discernible ideology that allows everyone else with dangerous ideologies to thrive?

Quote:
"I don't think this is Trump's ideology because he seems to be largely free of ideology. But these people are riding on his coattails. We are watching this very closely," the official told Reuters news agency, requesting anonymity.

Watch if you dare, THIS is what your "christian principles" have emboldened, THIS is what will be whispering in Trump's ear.

Being free of ideology is not a virtue, by the way. Ideology is not partisanship. Not having ideology often makes you a populist, or at least a demagogue.

I'm sure that Trump will be tweeting in outrage about this just like he has been about such deeply offensive things as the cast of Hamilton being "rude" to Mike Pence.

Future Trump tweet:

"North Korea fires more nukes after I was very fair to them.

Sad!"

LEAKED: A LOOK AT NEWSWEEK'S RECALLED HILLARY CLINTON "MADAM PRESIDENT" ISSUE

NEW YORK - A national recall went out earlier this month after Newsweek accidentally shipped copies of a special "Madame President" edition of the magazine before the election had taken place. At the time images of the cover were posted online and the internet went crazy. Newsweek responded with a statement from the editors saying: "2 special edition covers for 2016 election outcomes were produced by a Newsweek licensee, Topix Media, and not by Newsweek".

You know that wasn't over-anticipating, right?

For every major event decided on one day, media outlets will preempt two copies.

That's the whole joke about the losing super bowl team's winning attire going to Africa.

Which isn't actually a joke. It's a good thing that they donate these and don't just burn them or what have you. After all, it's still clothing.

Oh absolutely.
I only posted in case anyone wanted to read, even though this thread is about TRUMP. It would have been kinda cool to get one of those Newsweek's....they might be worth something some day.

For sure. In fact, the false reality is a cool keeper.

I have one of Clinton in 2008 right before she lost to Obama. Would've been cool if she won and I had that!

It is an interesting little tidbit for sure.

Trump's NYT "interview" is surreal.

Either he's lying now, or his entire campaign was just a heaping pile of bullshit aimed at getting suckers to vote for him.

I really don't know which I believe to be true.
