The information that President Trump sees has been a major subplot of the White House's internal drama. Aides often privately describe the president as highly susceptible to acting upon the last piece of information he's seen no matter how dubious. And controlling that flow of information is a big part of new White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly's effort to right the ship and keep the Oval Office on-task.

But rarely do you see someone close to the president just come out and admit how unsophisticated he is as a consumer of information.

That's what Stephen K. Bannon did Monday night, though not quite in so many words. While chatting with Fox News's Sean Hannity, the former White House chief strategist suggested that Trump was essentially duped into supporting appointed Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) in Tuesday's Alabama special-election runoff. And it wasn't really all that subtle.

What does Trump find so objectionable about Moore?  I mean, his views aren't that far from Trump's, if he's posting Britain First videos.

It was "old beast lunatic" in Korean, "dotard" was an approximate translation.

OMG that's even better.

1. Land wars in Asia
2. Invading Russia in winter
3. Attempt to out-insult North Korea.

They're just all historically bad ideas.

North Korea has always thrown out hilariously undiplomatic insults to foregin diplomats and world leaders - look at some of their comments on Hillary Clinton, for example.  This is the first time they've had the opportunity to use them on a leader as thin-skinned as Trump though.  No-one else dignifies their baiting with a response, instead farming out a comment to some low-level functionary.

Every time they provoke Trump, he visibly flinches and responds with some dipshit chest-beating on Twitter.  North Korea then responds with another missile or nuclear warhead test.  You don't need to be a genius to see what their game is.  You do have to wonder what sort of idiot keeps walking into the same trap, time and time again though....probably some old beast lunatic of some kind.

Don't tell Trump that, or he'll be tweeting about the "Chinese conspiracy of global warming to promote nuclear winter"

He's been banned, for a variety of reasons (multiple accounts among them) so no need to worry.

Do you think he's referring to Kim Jong Un as Rocketman because the dementia has finally taken hold and he cannot remember his real name?

It's the Axis of Evil all over again.  Only without Iraq, because, y'know....

Trump seems intent on reneging on the Iran deal, which will strengthen the hand of radical clerics who said the USA couldn't be trusted.  And he's also intent on militarily escalating the situation with North Korea.

Most people would try to do one of those at a time.

I cheated and looked at the IP.

Am I still allowed to guess?

So, there was a FISA warrant on Manafort from the FBI since 2016.  Actually, there was a FISA warrant on him before that, too, but that was unrelated to the time he was on the Trump campaign.

CNN's report says the wiretaps appeared to show or at least suggested that Manafort had requested for Russian government assistance during the campaign, though at least some of their sources said the evidence was ambiguous.

The only link I've found so far is a live feed at the pro-Trump rally's facebook page.  I'll assume when things get properly started, live feeds will appear somewhere on Twitter.  If I find any, I'll pass them on (though I am working tonight, so no guarantees).

Amateur hour bombing of a different tube line.  Didn't kill anyone but gave lots of people burns.
