Only impossible if you ignore the same polling showed Trump’s overall approval rating to be 40%

Theory is too strong a word! Look, he’s intensified the tone of the response and gave a fairly good impression of someone who’s a bit mad and a bit unpredictable, and has (or rather, Hayley has) secured new sanctions with Chin with some apparent success (let’s not get carried away just yet). The consequence of that may well have been that Kim’s looking for another way out.

The flip side to that argument is that all his Twitter diplomacy could have recklessly provoked a nuclear incident resulting in the death of tens of thousands of people, but if the situation deescalates he won’t be judged on the basis of what could have happened.

Didn't need to be nuclear but yeah, some analyst on R4 this eve suggesting that NK doing any buttering up of SK was purely transactional and intended to talk SK away from China and the US. Got to say it would seem to take far more than a bit of Winter Sports to convince anyone that NK isn't a complete shitshow waiting to happen, be it at Kim Jong's hands or anyone elses.

1. NK & SK get snuggly

2. Trump claims "that was me what did that!"

3. NK nukes SK in a sneak attack when they aren't looking

4. Trump claims he never said he did that

Clinton didn't suppress the Democratic vote Leady.

James Comey showing his partisan Republican ways suppressed the vote when he decided to write and publish a press release re-opening the email investigation a week out from the Election.

The American Media suppressed the vote by covering the email story with almost 100% saturation against Clinton ignoring policy, agenda and completely allowing Trump to control the narrative against her to the point at which even people in the UK consider her to be "an evil corrupt bitch" without any understanding beyond a few newspaper clippings and reading theCanary.

Next election you would also hope the media doesn't give him the billions of $$ worth of free air he got last time.

Pelosi slamming into the GOP live on telly. Looks like they're going to let the shutdown go ahead if it comes down to their votes.

Yes but there's a difference to the absolute total blanket coverage he got for every single event than what would be considered normal.

Yeah it was a disproportionate amount of coverage for someone who was just one of a number of candidates, but once the primaries were done the bigger issue was the excessive focus on Clinton's emails rather than too much coverage of Trump.

Just saw this on reddit, so may be a load of shit, but it says Farage was a key player in the Trump/Russia scandal.

So the US government is in shutdown. Trump is amazing.

I followed Mensch for a bit, but she was so completely off the charts that I had to stop. Abramson doesn’t feel anything close to that.
