and now he's accusing the intelligence agencies of leaking the pi88ing story while sucking up to 'the news organisations'

Am I being hopeless naive in hoping that after 20 Jan he will be sat on by the collective government machine and he will STFU for a bit while he learns how to do the job?

PS heh at Charlotte Church

"Charlotte Church has become the latest singer to refuse Donald Trump’s request to perform at his inauguration ceremony.

The Welsh lass tweeted directly at the President-elect and said: “Your staff have asked me to sing at your inauguration, a simple Internet search would show I think you’re a tyrant. Bye”

Dillon, the lawyer, says a trust will be created by 20 January. The trust will hold cash and perhaps an index investment and “preexisting and illiquid business assets - golf clubs, resorts, hotels, royalties, real estate.”

And the management of the Trump organization goes to Don Jr and Eric, and a third Trump executive.

The management team will include an ethics adviser, Dillon says. “President elect Trump will resign from all offices he holds” with the Trump organization, she says.

Trump has “already disposed” with all publicly traded and “easily liquidated” investments she says.

“No new foreign deals will be made whatsoever during the duration of Donald Trump’s presidency,” she says.

Trump won’t talk to his sons about new domestic deals, Dillon says. Trump “will only know of a deal if he reads it in the paper or sees it on TV.”

Dillon calls the division between Trump and the Trump organization a “wall.”

Raises an interesting point though. John Hinkley Jr successfully pleaded insanity but a jury might not accept that from someone who tries to top Trump on the basis that it's not a completely mental response to the situation.

So, if he doesn't just drop it as a story which encourages paranoia in the plebs so that they trust him qua leader and not "the State", could he angle to disestablish the intelligence services in favour of his own network? Srs q, if you look at what Hilter did.

Impressed by Cookie's very energetic warm-up to give a minute-by-minute live-ROF commentary throughout the entire Trump presidency.

Bit off to wish him shot dead though. Even more so to express wanting to watch his brains blown out frame by frame.
