Trump's horse was unavailable as he was undergoing an interview to run the USDA. The Senate hearings for this would be amazing.
One industry insider equated this to the Seinfeld episode when Cosmo Kramer used his golf caddy as a jury consultant. A senior administration official told me that comparison is completely unfair.
Oh and bonus for Warren.
Being an old fashioned sort of tyrant, Trump would prefer to get his horse elected to the Senate.

Murphy sought to give him a reality check: "I think you underestimate the power of the gun lobby."

Trump retorted that while "they have great power over you people, they have less power over me."

Trump argued that the NRA is "well-meaning" and said he believes "they're there" as far as supporting more reforms -- a view that has not been backed up by any of the NRA's public statements in the wake of the Parkland shooting.

"Some of you people are petrified of the NRA. You can't be petrified. You can't be petrified," Trump said.

I think he just managed to offend all sides with that statement.

Didn't the NRA bow to candidate Trump when he came out for stopping sales to people on the no-fly list? He's not crazy to think "they're there."

And make sure not to miss his line, “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

Senator Ben Sasse wrote:We have the Second Amendment and due process of law for a reason. We're not ditching any Constitutional protections simply because the last person the President talked to today doesn't like them.
Nice burn.

However, Senator, I'd take you a little more seriously if you took a stand against government surveillance and making war without Congressional approval. When did you last speak out against drone strikes?

That tweet is so incredibly stupid that I cannot comprehend how anyone with the slightest knowledge of international trade (or history) could defend it.

Ugh, god, just... I'm stuck on the "we win big" part. How does that square with us needing steel to be a country? He's putting up the tariff because we don't make enough steel at home, so it's not easy to just cut off the steel trade when another country gets "cute," so we don't win big.

Wait, no, I'm circling back around to the trade deficit meaning we are "down" that money. Jesus Christ.

Also, Certofied Militery Jugde is pretty open about his protectionism. I'm sure he's hailing these tweets as much smarter than any of us dunces realize.

I came here to post Trump's tweet but of course others beat me to that punch.

I guess "trade wars are easy to win" is this decade's "the Iraqis will greet us as liberators and the war will be over in six months."

Okay, that's terrible on several levels.

But my favorite is that the URL misspelled his name as "ichan", which sounds like the new hyper-nerdy Apple-branded message board.

This broke a couple of days ago, but I missed it:

Trump strikes $3.9 billion deal with Boeing for new Air Force One
The White House is touting this as a saving of more than $1 billion from the original estimate of $5 billion.
"President Trump has reached an informal deal with Boeing on a fixed price contract for the new Air Force One Program," White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told CNN. "Thanks to the President's negotiations, the contract will save the taxpayers more than $1.4 billion."
But the cost savings aren't entirely clear.
Trump -- shortly after winning the presidency in 2016 -- tweeted that the planes would cost $4 billion, not $5 billion.
A Boeing official said the price includes work to develop and build two presidential aircraft, including features unique to Air Force One such as a communications suite, internal and external stairs, large galleys and other equipment, as well as structural changes designed to protect and sustain the President and those on board for an extended period of time.
Crony capitalism is great when you are the chief crony.

"BREAKING: White House in Lockdown After Reports of Shots Fired"

The hope that sprang into my heart when I saw that headline would be called extremely unpatriotic by most conservatives, but I can't help it.
