Donald Trump: The Wrath of Con Men

He wishes to discuss terms of your surrender.

Paul Ryan: Mr. Trump, how do I know you'll keep your word?

Donald Trump: Oh, I've given you no word to keep, Mr. Speaker. In my judgment, you simply have no alternative.

From Brother Charles Pierce:
Let us be very clear. He, Trump is interested in winning. Period.

He doesn't care if the institutional Republican Party exists beyond election day. He doesn't care if half the House Republicans get voted out of office in favor of tropical fish. He is not invested at all in Paul Ryan's political future, but Ryan knows that, if a Trump campaign craters the party in November, he will find himself nothing more than the most influential corpse in the morgue. This was not a meeting about "unity." It was a meeting about how to make the best of things when you suddenly wake up and discover that all the power in your political universe rests with a vulgar talking yam.

Good afternoon, Mr. Glass.

Since we all know how this story ends, should we just start referring to him as, "Future Unperson Donald Trump?"

Be seeing you.

IOW: the Granny Starver is F*cked if he does, and F*cked if he doesn't. Couldn't have happen to a better Ayn Rand panty sniffer.

Boner pours himself another stiff one, raises the glass, sucks deep on his cigarette, laughs and sez: "How'd you like them apples, chump??!"

I, for one, welcome our new tropical fish overlords.

Maybe Trump will offer him another shot at the vice presidency? That would be good for a laugh: Sorry, Mr. Trump, but I still plan on winning...

And all the GOP SURRENDER MONKEYS put on their knee pads and got in line. Dick Cheney was first.

We should all have a good time. Chuckle it up. Plenty of time for remorse after the election of President Trump. Who leads this country into fascism as loud and proud as his campaign.
With complete support of a majority GOP in Congress who have found they no longer have to us dog whistles or think tank researched soft language of their true beliefs and intentions.
With all the hoopla over Paul Ryan and Donald Trump meeting. They find out that they are both Ayn Rand true believers.
It is tough to believe the Ryan stressed to Trump of presidencial boundaries.
The GOP NEVER held GW Bush to any constitutional standards.
Does anyone really see republicans holding their republican president to a fourth of what they have Obama?
It is a miracle to witness Trump discard the very unicorns that his supporters loved to ride so much. The HuUUge Great Wall. The Ban of the Muslims. The tax hike on the hedge hog funders. His embrace of paying down the debt at the expense of taxpayers. Those Who pay no or little taxes not included.

Ok, Class
A moral character math problem:
The Trump Morph into GW Bush + Mitt Romney added with the Ayn Rand and George Wallace equals?
