'Are Trump’s Critics Demonically Possessed?
Two of the president’s prominent evangelical supporters are literally demonizing his opponents.

[...] There is no biblical or theological case to support the claim that critics of Donald Trump are under the spell of Satan. It is invented out of thin air, a shallow, wild, and reckless charge meant to be a conversation stopper.'

Not to mention the new official White House spiritual adviser:

'Alan Dershowitz asserted that President Trump is more powerful than a king in a Fox News interview after a judge rebuked Trump for acting like a monarch.

“Of course the president’s not the king. The president’s far more powerful than the king,” Dershowitz said Monday night on Laura Ingraham’s show. “The president has the power that kings have never had.”'

'Trump "wants war criminals" to campaign for him in 2020 election

Men who ordered soldiers to fire on unarmed civilians, posed for photos with dead bodies and are accused of stabbing wounded teenagers among those president said to be keen to enlist

Donald Trump has reportedly told aides he wants three convicted or accused war criminals to campaign for him during his bid for reelection in 2020.

The US president granted clemency to Clint Lorance and Matthew Golsteyn, and reversed the decision to demote Edward Gallagher on 15 November.

Mr Trump has since spoken about how he would like to have the three men appear at his 2020 rallies'

Trump tweeted this image this morning (perhaps as inspiration for Thanksgiving table battles?...):

Posted Image

https://www.theguard...picture-twitter

Then later today he said this at a rally:

'"They said, he went into the hospital -- and it's true, I didn't wear a tie -- why would I wear a tie if the first thing they do is say take off your shirt, sir, and show us that gorgeous chest?

It's true. Show -- we want to see, sir. We've never seen a chest quite like it."'

https://abcnews.go.c...ory?id=67347844

Trump has also been ranting about a baseless conspiracy theory about leftists trying to change the name of Thanksgiving:

'"As we gather together for Thanksgiving, you know, some people want to change the name Thanksgiving," Trump said Tuesday night. "They don't want to use the term Thanksgiving. And that was true also with Christmas. But now everybody's using Christmas again. Remember this?" Huh? "But now we're going to have to do a little work on Thanksgiving," Trump continued. "People have different ideas. Why it shouldn't be called Thanksgiving. But everybody in this room, I know, loves the name Thanksgiving. And we're not changing."

That even baffled the normally unbaffleable crew at Fox & Friends, who did their best to contextualize and explain Trump's comments, even briefly pinning it on Obama, naturally.

[...] Host Steve Doocy: "Well, you know, I think it was in 2015 there was a rumor that Barack Obama wanted to change the name of Thanksgiving. But that was debunked. So perhaps what he's talking about was just all these stories about your carbon footprint and the amount of energy you use to travel…"'

https://slate.com/ne...anksgiving.html

'In recent weeks, Fox News' opinion shows have run countless segments insisting that liberals and progressives want to "cancel" the holiday and fight a "War on Thanksgiving," tying it all to a single HuffPost opinion piece about the environmental impact of Thanksgiving dinner. The article, while providing readers with steps to reduce their carbon footprint, never called for the holiday to be abolished or even for Americans to stop celebrating it.

[...] In its news recap of the president's remarks, meanwhile, the network framed Trump's baseless claim with the following headline: "Trump vows not to change the name of Thanksgiving despite cries from the 'radical left'". Interestingly, there was no reference to Fox's consistent coverage of the "War on Thanksgiving" in the piece.'

'A Majority of Republicans Say Trump is Better President Than Lincoln

[...] David Rothkopf also expressed shock: "Many of these people have jobs. Operate heavy equipment. Move freely in society. Can that be safe?"

[...] As shocking as the numbers may be, Lincoln was not the exception as Republicans seem to think Trump was a better president than many others. [...] The one exception? Ronald Reagan. Almost six-in-10 Republicans say Reagan was a better president with 41 percent choosing Trump.'

https://slate.com/ne...ncoln-poll.html

Wonder how many think Lincoln was a worse president than Jefferson Davis....


'Listen to Reagan's Press Secretary Laugh About Gay People Dying of AIDS

"What's AIDS?" Speakes asked.

"It's known as the 'gay plague,' " Kinsolving replied.

Everyone laughed.

"I don't have it," Speakes replied. "Do you?" The room erupted in laughter again. Speakes continued to parry Kinsolving's questions with quips, joking that Kinsolving himself might be gay simply because he knew about the disease. The press secretary eventually acknowledged that nobody in the White House, including Reagan, knew anything about the epidemic.

"There has been no personal experience here," Speakes cracked. The room was in stitches.'

Grandpa Biden rolls out new campaign slogan; not helping the impression that he is old and out of touch.

Next move by Biden to connect with voters - he'll shake is fist at some wayward young adults loitering around his house, yelling - "get off my lawn, you rapscallions! I'll give you the busy end of 'ol' hickory', my trusty walking cane!"

'North Korea Urges Trump to Choose His Own Nuclear “Christmas Gift”

It seems even Kim Jong Un is getting into the Christmas spirit. North Korea on Tuesday said the Trump administration is running out of time to save nuclear negotiations between the nations, adding that it’s entirely up to the United States to choose which “Christmas gift” it gets from the North.'

'In yet another hot-mic moment, Donald Trump congratulated himself for attacking Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for being shown in a video laughing at the U.S. president [...] Trump mocked the impending press coverage of his decision to abruptly call off a Wednesday press conference and return to Washington—a move that was announced the day after video surfaced showing several world leaders—including Trudeau—laughing and poking fun at the president’s Tuesday press conference. [...]

"Oh, and then you know what they'll say. He didn't do a press conference. He didn't do a press conference," Trump said, which was caught on a hot-mic, according to a CNN reporter. He added, referring to calling Trudeau: "That was funny when I said the guy's two-faced, you know that."'

Trump also 'lashed out at Emmanuel Macron on the first morning of [the] two-day Nato meeting, saying the French president’s description of Nato as brain dead was insulting and a “very, very nasty statement”.'

'In Tense Exchange, Biden Calls Iowa Voter A "Damn Liar," Challenges Him To IQ Test

[...] "a voter started out by telling Biden he had two problems with him: he was too old, and his son's work in Ukraine"

Before sitting down, the man said he was not planning to vote for Biden. And Biden quipped back: "Well, I knew you weren't, man." Biden said, "You're too old to vote for me."'

There's video:

https://www.npr.org/...-him-to-iq-test

[Edit: From the video:

Guy: 'I see it on the tee-vee.'
Biden: 'You see it on the tee-vee. No, I know you do. And by the way, that's why I'm not sedentary.'

Biden also challenges him to a push-up contest, a race, 'whatever you want to do'....]

Seems the courtship between the dear leader and Kim Jong Un has cooled a bit. Anticipation for renewed missile tests around Christmas is elevated.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-50682235

The dear leader used the term 'rocket man' again. I'm guessing Kim Jong Un doesn't like that very much.

'"People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once. They end up using more water," Trump said, continuing that the Environmental Protection Agency is "looking at" the issue at "his suggestion."

"We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms, where you turn the faucet on in areas where there's tremendous amounts of water, where it rushes out to sea because you could never handle it. And you don't get any water. You turn on the faucet and you don't get any water," Trump said during the White House round-table on small business and red tape reduction.

[...] "They got rid of the lightbulb that people got used to. The new bulb is many times more expensive. And I hate to say it -- it doesn't make you look as good. Being a vain person that's very important to me. It gives you an orange look. I don't want an orange look."'

'President Donald Trump called for the evacuation of Seoul to fool Kim Jong Un into thinking that war was imminent [...] “They have to move,” Trump said, according to Bergen, who adds that his officials initially thought Trump president was joking. But then he reportedly repeated the line: “They have to move!” The request to move the city’s 25 million population was, perhaps unsurprisingly, not acted upon. Bergen also reports that Trump asked his national-security team to remove all American civilians from South Korea, which was also ignored.'

'"Trump on Twitter called the shooting "horrfic", adding that his "thoughts & prayers are w/ the victimes & their families".' '
[The tweet continued: 'We will continue to monitor the situation as we assist local & state officials on the ground.']

'The bullets started flying early in the afternoon in the city of about 270,000 people, situated across the Hudson River from the Statue of Liberty. [...] "It's like firecrackers going off. They were shooting like crazy ...'

Meanwhile, Britain Trump waxes nostalgic for English imperial glory once again with his updated version of the Charge of the Light Brigade:

'Boris Johnson "Hides in Fridge" to Escape Piers Morgan Interview

Appearing to panic following a reporter's ambush a day before the British election, the prime minister sought refuge among hundreds of ice-cold bottles of milk.

[...] The British prime minister was ambushed during a campaign visit to a Yorkshire milk factory by a producer from Morgan’s Good Morning Britain TV show---[...] one of his staffers, who has obviously had a long month, was broadcast live mouthing: "Oh for fuck's sake." [...] the prime minister replied: "I'll be with you in a second." However, Johnson then hastily left the scene by making a beeline into the nearest secure location—a fridge full of milk.

Conservative sources later bravely tried to insist to The Guardian that Johnson was "categorically not hiding" in the fridge, despite Johnson emerging from the chilly container with an armful of milk bottles.'
