I will give this to Trump, I am totally blocking off parts of my calendar with "Executive Time".
That's ... actually a good point. Can i appropriate that into my life or do I need to be an executive?

Fuck that. I'm calling a repeat offender against rationalism and reality, not to mention grammar and spelling, stupid. One can defend some of the administration's policies, but calling what's happening at the EPA reform is simply fucking stupid. I sincerely hope Warren drinks contaminated water.

Please stop calling people stupid.
I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

So I wonder if Bannon will disappear or if he'll find some other platform. Hopefully disappear, otherwise Trumpism is more likely to survive Trump.

It's time for discovery. You'd think a lawyer would know better.

That said, it appears to be on his own behalf, though that may ultimately still be detrimental to Trump.

Ooh, thanks for pointing that out; I'd misunderstood that.

What do you want to bet that he's going to try to prevent basically all discovery with claims of attorney-client privilege?

Well, if it's protected, he can. He can accidentally blow it, but nobody can force him to give up secrets that are protected by attorney-client privilege. That privilege is limited to communication with Trump. There is also the work-product doctrine, which protects info and work created with a legit eye towards litigation. I can't imagine him visiting Prague or not would be protected.

Yeah, more to the point, he has to make the case, and secret evidence won't work.
