The football board had the very useful Daily Trump Tracker thread, which was a good place to briefly discuss the latest ridiculous thing that might have ended 97% of prior Presidential administrations even if it didn't necessarily justify an entire thread devoted to it in 2017-2019 (because of the sheer volume of these things). Since I don't see anything like that here already, I'll add one myself.

To begin:


At the time, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said the Doral site had been selected after a thorough search process. “It became apparent at the end of that process that Doral was, by far and away — far and away — the best physical facility for this meeting,” Mulvaney said.

In a news conference, Mulvaney described a long search process that began with 12 sites, then whittled the list down to four, including Doral.

He said Trump had been the one to suggest his own resort: “What about Doral?” But Mulvaney gave no indication that this addition had come so late in the process.

Who could have known?

Or maybe


Who among us hasn't been Mitt Romney's niece and tried to sell an ambassadorship through the Trump administration for $500k?

Yes, because we don't have enough Trump here already.

The next five years can't go by fast enough.

In fairness, there was that time Obama wore a brown suit. Oh and the time a Marine held an umbrella over Obama. Or who could forget when the pride of the nation was wounded that time Obama wore a bike helmet.

And the time he used dijon mustard instead of yellow?! Good Lord that guy was out of touch.

Apparently Trump and Mnuchin invited Powell to the White House (residence, not office) for a little chat this morning - it wasn't on the president's calendar. The Fed chose to release a note about it for transparency.

I don't think there's too much to make if it, but note that the Powell "said" (meaning he said to Trump in the meeting) that the FOMC will set monetary policy as required by law and not in the interest of politics.

I wonder what was the ask??? Whatever it was, the Fed made an effort to note the meeting for the public record.

Gotta be to reduce interest rates. That's all he's constantly complaining about.

If he did push for additional Fed action, you would think it would be more aggressive rate cuts. Note that the Fed released a similar meeting note after a White House meeting last February.


Also, this was lol

Don't forget about:

-Obama's lie about keeping your own doctor
- Operation Fast and Furious
- Obama administration’s efforts to undermine investigations into a drug-trafficking ring run by Hezbollah because he wanted the Iran deal.
-Obama administration spying on the Associated Press and James Rosen
-Obama's CIA director Brenann spying on a congressional staffer
-Snowden exposing the Obama administration of spying on the majority of the country
-IRS targeting conservative groups
-Susan Rice lying about the video being the cause for the Benghazi attack
-Solyndra
-VA negligence

Trump has had many more scandals than Obama, but Biden's and the media's claim that he was scadal free isn't true.

Sure, I'll agree that it certainly wasn't a scandal free time. I was more responding to Archie's suggestion that a rolling narrative (critical as may be warranted) shouldn't be unexpected.

It was not a comparison to Trump. It was only in reference to Obama's biggest scandal being his tan suite.

The program did start before Obama, but he continued it, and according to Snowden Obama made the program worse.

In what way did Obama make it worse?

Edit: What was Obama's role in Operation Fast and Furious?

The buck stops with the president, or at least it should. I don't think Obama was directly involved with it, but it was a legitimate problem
On that I agree, but to a point. That scheme they were running out of the local AZ office of the ATF was begun in 2006 and continued through 2011. To hold Obama has the sole wrongdoer for OFF is, to me disingenuous.
