    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... and to brag a little about how good he is (as in better than Obama): "we are going to have the best climate, the best floor in the forest...."

    Next year there will be no more forest fires, we will make concrete floor in all forests so that it will not burn anymore and will have a great climate.

      Nobody in the world can have missed the debacle about finances for a border wall (or steel barrier) along the US/Mexico border.
      I have a suggestion that may cut true the problem; BUILD A WHITE PICKET FENCE!!!.
      Nothing can be more American than a white picket fence and it would be a lot cheaper than either a wall, steel barrier or barbed wire fence.
      It would also be just as efficient as a $25 Bn. concrete wall, which can be scaled using a $25 ladder, or dug under using a shovel.

      In case Mr Trump should be interested in my idea, here is an instruction video about how to build picket fences: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLyUstihyGs
      (His expertise is supposed to be in construction of large towers, be it in NY or Moscow)

        Good one ombugge, I bet mr. President will call you soon.

        Not only that, imagine all the "raking and cleaning" that can be done on the lawn next to the fence - just like they do in Finland.

                I thought you could at least access a few article a month for free. ( BTW: Annual subscription is on USD 19)
                Here is the article FYE:

                • Trump’s sacrifices are hard. You think it’s easy working 11 to 5?

                President Trump during a rally in El Paso on Feb. 11. (Leah Millis/Reuters)
                By Dana Milbank
                Columnist
                February 12

                Being president isn’t easy under the best of circumstances. Imagine how hard it must be if you’re Donald Trump.

                “I probably work more hours than almost any past president,” Trump announced Sunday, adding that he “had no choice but to work very long hours!”

                On Monday, after retweeting his own assertion from a few days earlier that he is “working hard,” he eliminated any doubt: “No president ever worked harder than me,” he declared.

                Franklin D. Roosevelt died of a cerebral hemorrhage while recovering from exhaustion after leading the country through the Depression and World War II. Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke after laboring in Europe to negotiate the Treaty of Versailles and then selling it to the country. But they were loafers next to Trump.

                The president appears to be stung by a leak of three months of schedules showing he spent about 60 percent of his workday in “Executive Time” — watching TV, tweeting, gabbing and the like. When last week’s schedule was leaked to Axios, it showed Trump had cut back Executive Time — to
                50 percent!

                Sometimes Trump sounds like he misses his 'old life'

                President Trump sometimes seems to miss his "other life" before becoming commander-in-chief. (Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post)

                Trump’s assertion that he is the hardest-working president is consistent with other superlatives he has shared. He has kept more promises, cut more regulations and built a better economy than any other president and been more popular than any Republican president. Just about no president did more in his first six months, and no president did more in his first nine months, or the first two years. Yet no president since Abraham Lincoln has been treated worse by the media!

                Some might think Trump’s hard-work assertion reflects a doth-protest-too-much compensation for perceived laziness. He has likewise boasted that “nobody has been tougher on Russia,” that nobody “has been more with the military than I have as a president,” that “nobody wants to speak more than me” under oath with the special counsel, that “nobody believes in the First Amendment more than I do,” that “there’s nobody that respects women more than I do,” that he is “the least racist person” and that “nobody reads the Bible more than me.” But this is to be expected of a man with a very good brain and the best words.

                Trump surprises himself with how hard he works. After his first 100 days in office, he told Reuters: “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.” The poor guy can’t even get a dog. “I wouldn’t mind having one, honestly, but I don’t have any time,” he told supporters Monday.

                Trump must work harder than his predecessors because there are more demands on him. He has to spend more time appointing staff, for example, because his appointees keep quitting. George Washington had a lot on his plate, but he didn’t have to attend so many MAGA events or craft so many Twitter insults. Lincoln fought the Civil War, but he didn’t have so many Fox News interviews or a round of golf every five days, on average.

                Overworked Trump told an El Paso audience Monday night that before taking the stage, his advisers told him about a possible deal to avert a government shutdown. But Trump told them, “I don’t even want to hear about it” before his rally speech.

                It’s hard to squeeze in intelligence briefings, because Trump has to spend so much time devising clever strategies. On Tuesday, he disparaged a bipartisan border deal crafted to avert a shutdown but then said if a shutdown comes, “It’s the Democrats’ fault.” That’s hard to come up with!

                And consider the physical stamina required. Though he is unequivocally“the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” it’s hard work to manufacture so many crises over NATO, NAFTA, DACA, Iran, China and the border. One of his border crises even required using duct tape.

                Before Trump’s visit to far west Texas, the El Paso Times reported that violent crime in the city had fallen more than 34 percent by 2006 — before a border fence was built there. The city’s Republican mayor said El Paso was safe “going back to 2005.” So it took a lot of strength for Trump to declare the opposite, telling supporters Monday the mayor is “full of crap.” Hard work!

                Meanwhile, he continues his arduous campaign against Hillary Clinton (there were “lock her up” chants in El Paso), his tireless battle against Robert S. Mueller III’s credibility (a Post-Schar School poll finds Mueller trusted more than Trump by a 23-point margin) and his mighty struggle to shield Saudi Arabia from the consequences of its human trafficking and its murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

                In fact, just listing all of Trump’s hard work makes me crave some Executive Time. Wake me in an hour?

                  That guy really knows how to brag like he owns the whole concept.

                  While reading this, I kind of made a wish that he too would ... ehhh... suffer a cerebral haemorrhage.

                  Is that evil?

                  Well, how much pity can I have for a man with a behaviour that resembles the worst bullies I met in my younger years?

                    I know that The Daily Show is a comedy show and Trevor Noah in an African (not even an African-American yet).
                    But sometime more facts comes out of the late night comedy shows then main stream news shows. (And I'm not just talking about Fox News)
                    Here is a cut from their 21. Febr. 2019 show that put a spotlight on some of the biggest problems facing USA today; Opioids, greed and laying to the public:

                      Whited Out: Not redacted, just a typo.

                      Crossed Out in a Zodiac Symbol With Many Tiny Pen Strokes: Person redacting watched cursed videotape.

                      Each Letter Filled Meticulously by a Variety of Colors to Form a Picture of Saint Patrick Blessing What Looks Like a Diseased Hippopotamus: Guy who was redacting went on break, monk took over.

                      Covered in Layers of Aluminum Foil: Redactor suddenly became aware this went all the way to the top.

                      Crossed Out in Pencil With Question Mark Written on Side: Redactor wasn’t sure of information’s importance, reminder to go back and ask someone, oops!

                      Yellow: This isn’t redacting! This is highlighting!

                      Purple: Information compromises Byzantine emperor.

                              Interesting article on the "saviour of the world".

                              This is why the Titanic brought so few lifeboats on board. To bring too many is to imply that a disaster might happen, in which case such lifeboats might be needed and might lead the ship to lose confidence in itself and capsize. This would have been disastrous!

                              The last thing we need is to invite disaster.
