- Trump’s Carrier deal was a near complete fraud.
- His claim that Tawian’s president called him to say "thank you" was a lie (I know – SHOCKING!). Trump’s staff engineered that call. And why did Trumpkins call Taiwan’s prez? Why, to shmooze up the country's new prez so’s he can open hotels there! Jesus-Corporate-Scamster-Christ, the craven fraud’s not even sworn in and he's using the presidency to build his biz empire and to hell with possible consequences (like pissing off China, a trade partner who just happens to have nukes).
- Steve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog tells us that Trump is cozying up to vigilante murder advocate Duterte and this is just the beginning.
Consider the fact that the party of racist Geert Wilders is currently leading in the polls in the Netherlands. Far-rightist Norbert Hofer is neck-and-neck with his Greens Party opponent in the race for Austria's presidency. And white nationalist Marine Le Pen could conceivably win the French presidency.
I assume Trump's going to roll out the red carpet for all of these folks if they win. He's not just going to accept the results of these elections -- he's going to prioritize the normalization of these governments. He's going to lavish the winners with more praise and a warmer D.C. welcome than he's going to extend to, say, Angela Merkel.
- Tom Levenson of Balloon Juice had an update for the “who has Trump fucked today” list. The AT&T /Time Warner merger – Trump vowed to block this heinousness but is now on board.
“Donald Trump’s transition team has reassured AT&T that its $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner will be scrutinized without prejudice,” the Financial Timesreported yesterday. “After talking with the president-elect’s team, AT&T executives are confident that their deal has a good chance of passing regulatory scrutiny, people informed about the conversation said.” [Ars Technica]
