It might just be a privacy setting issue.

Why are Americans so keen to fall for Louise Mensch?

https://www.vox.com/world/2017/5/19/155 ... ise-mensch

Quote:
President Donald Trump is about to resign as a result of the Russia scandal. Bernie Sanders and Sean Hannity are Russian agents. The Russians have paid off House Oversight Chair Jason Chaffetz to the tune of $10 million, using Trump as a go-between. Paul Ryan is a traitor for refusing to investigate Trump’s Russia ties. Libertarian heroine Ayn Rand was a secret Russian agent charged with discrediting the American conservative movement.

These are all claims you can find made on a new and growing sector of the internet that functions as a fake news bubble for liberals, something I’ve dubbed the Russiasphere. The mirror image of Breitbart and InfoWars on the right, it focuses nearly exclusively on real and imagined connections between Trump and Russia. The tone is breathless: full of unnamed intelligence sources, certainty that Trump will soon be imprisoned, and fever dream factual assertions that no reputable media outlet has managed to confirm.

Twitter is the Russiasphere’s native habitat. Louise Mensch, a former right-wing British parliamentarian and romance novelist, spreads the newest, punchiest, and often most unfounded Russia gossip to her 283,000 followers on Twitter. Mensch is backed up by a handful of allies, including former NSA spook John Schindler (226,000 followers) and DC-area photographer Claude Taylor (159,000 followers).

Ayn Rand, Russian spy, liberals?

Holy fuck, that's it, May's right. SHUT IT ALL DOWN! WE'VE GONE FULL RETARD!

In the 1960s we sent them the Beatles, The Stones, the Faces, The Yardbirds and Spencer Davis.

The the 2010s we offloaded Piers Morgan, James Corden and Louise Mensch

No big deal, just the president telling Russians he fired the head of the FBI to shut down an investigation of his dealings w Russia

I though I had imagined it, but Trump really did say people were buying "lots of beautiful military equipment" at the weekend... :shock:

In an interview Monday, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross marveled at the "fascinating" fact that there "was not a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time" he was in Saudi Arabia with President Trump. CNBC Squawk Box host Becky Quick pointed out that might be because the Saudi Arabian government does not allow protests. Political protesters have been jailed and even beheaded.

"But Secretary Ross, that might be, not necessarily because they don't have those feelings there, but because they control people and don't allow them to come and express their feelings quite the same as we do here," Quick said.

Ross admitted that "in theory that could be true." "But boy there was certainly no sign of it, there was not a single effort at any incursion," Ross said. "There wasn't anything." http://theweek.com/speedreads/700550/wi ... are-jailed


Trump meeting Netyanhu showed he is not always the most tiresome arsehole in the room. Calling POTUS and FLOTUS Donald and Melania at a press conference didn't impress Trump and neither should it. Trump managed a geography gaffe though

Manchester Bombing:

US Officials released the bomber's name before UK police were ready to do so.
A police spokesman commented on the difficulty of investigating a location when it is crawling with journalists.


Hot on the heels on Trump's intelligence bragging, another blow to international intelligence sharing.

They probably got it from CBS who were broadcasting the name.

Was May flirting by asking Donald to take out the bins?
