Out in a net yes please!

Here's a fun one for you guys: Trump didn't even know the executive order he signed added Bannon as a permanent member of the National Security Council until he heard the pundits criticizing him for it on television.

Unique, yes, but I highly doubt he want to be classified as impaired!

We could launch him in a rocket towards the Sun. That too would be unique and historic.

I think that he will fire Bannon and make an agreement with the Republicans.

he already sort of is... he's joined a unique club in that he's the third president (and first republican) ever to have an executive order struck down by a federal judge... the other two were Truman had several apparently (I only knew about the Steel Mill nationalization in wake of strikes), and Clinton had one (barring federal contracts with employerss of strike breakers that conflicted with an existing law).

it's not clear from the text that is what happened. it may have been several of the other issue with the Memorandum (not Executive Order)

We would need three rockets then.
One to transport the orange one and two to transport his ego.

Still a nice and cheap way to solve the problem.

The Trump administration has sprung a leak. Many of them, in fact.
Quote:
The leaks have been a bonanza for news organizations, particularly mainstream outlets such as the New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC and the Associated Press. The pattern of leaks to these organizations suggests the leakers are seeking not just wide distribution of confidential information but are hoping to gain the credibility conveyed by establishment news organizations — the very news outlets that Trump has frequently derided as purveyors of “fake news.”

They also suggest the extent of rivalries and some possible misgivings within Trump’s inner circle about policies and would-be policies. Leaks, after all, are often designed to isolate a rival or to whip up public pressure to derail a decision.

...

Other reporters say the leaks reflect a certain degree of chaos within the new administration, with factions warily circling one another. At the top of the organization is an executive who has himself flouted White House norms, which may be setting a certain tone. “I tend to think chaos begets chaos begets chaos, and that’s what we’re seeing here,” said a reporter familiar with some of the senior players.

But others see the leaks as whistleblowing — an effort to expose Trump’s initiatives before they become policy.

...

Spicer: New York Times owes Trump an apology | TheHill
Quote:
The article describes Trump’s routine after normal business hours, when he reportedly watches television in a bathrobe or marks up negative news articles with a Sharpie.

Spicer took issue with that and other specific anecdotes in the story.


"I don't think the president owns a bathrobe; he definitely doesn’t wear one,” the spokesman said. “From top to bottom they made up stories that just don’t exist. And I think that’s unfortunate.”

My eyes! Spoiler tags next time, please.

My question: In what circumstances, Mr Spicer, where you would normally expect someone to wear a bathrobe, have you seen Mr Trump without one?
