How embarrassing ignorance can be.

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Nothing like a severe case of TDS to make every satirical website story look real. You sooo badly want it to be real don’t you. But in the end the jokes on you.
Actually POTUS does a far better job of promoting TDS than my misunderstanding ever could.

Ignorance is believing that the POTUS, in any practical sense, "leads a country". The position is a purely ceremonial one. The actual decisions, including who gets to be the POTUS, are made by others.

Everybody knows that the elections and all actions of the POTUS are a psy-ops performance art/kabuki theater. This is true for most, perhaps all, other major nations (Germany, France, the UK, Canada, Australia, etc.).

I'm not sure that Is quite believe that. In any case , he most certainly believes it to s far greater extent than I do.

Donald J. Trump

To show you how dishonest the LameStream Media is, I used the word Liddle’, not Liddle, in discribing Corrupt Congressman Liddle’ Adam Schiff. Low ratings @CNN purposely took the hyphen out and said I spelled the word little wrong. A small but never ending situation with CNN!

The stable genius does not know the difference between an apostrophe and a hyphen, can not spell describing correctly and missed the hyphen in never-ending. That is what you get when you study at Fordham University or the very prestigious Wharton School of Business. The very stable genius is not just treasonous, he is plain old dumb. Grammarly is free, my wife uses it and despite having a degree from a third-tier university in Thailand, her business letters, emails and facebook post are all grammatically perfect.

After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pore over my tweets looking for a mistake. I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!

Meanwhile, Trump's special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker has just resigned and evidence is emerging that John Bolton was fired within an hour of Trump freezing aid to Ukraine.
The latter item will be on mainstream print media within hours. The former is already published.

Many other Whitehouse actors are now implicated in breaking news.
