    He got conservative judges to protect his 2nd amendment rights and the rights of corporations.

    Thank fuck for that, what with Trump banning bump stocks and trying to overthrow the rights of social media companies to police what folk say on their platforms.

    The worth of a good president isn’t about what he can provide an individual during his term, rather how the presidency shapes the country for the rest of time. This is why trump and his followers - or at least Paladin according his post - is a failure.

    I assume that Paladin does not view Trump as a failure. I also assume that Paladin is not talking purely about what Trump did for him personally but what he believes Trump did for he country and how he shaped it.

    But he can speak for himself on that point.

    You may assume all you like. I’ll take his words as is.
    Also, my comment wasn’t intended to disagree with you. But if you’re feeling adversarial, ... you go girl.

    Reading between the lines, I’d guess Jared is the primary source here and Ivanka is the actual leaker. Meadows is a strong 2nd possibility.

    FYI anything over 20% similarity on TurnItIn (assuming bibliography gets correctly ignored by the software, which can be hit and miss) goes to the Unfair Academic Practice panel at my university. Lecturer's discretion, of course - lab reports are always going to have very similar methodology sections.

    Biden would probably have preferred Amtrak, but that was nixed for security reasons. The private plane makes him less of a target. If Air Force One gets shot down by terrorists on the way to Mar-al-Lago... oh, well! :shrug:

    That would be very sad. 747s are really expensive, and Boeing doesn't even make them anymore.

    Not to mention referencing. IIRC 15+% similarities commonly reside there, especially in undergraduate essays where a comparatively limited sphere of sources are all referenced in the same format (often by the same referencing tools).

    Clearly Trump is a rigorous academic to add to his many other virtues.

    I wonder what will happen to the existing ones once the replacements enter service in a few years.

    Generally, retired Air Force Ones end up in museums.

    I don't know why it just dawned on me this morning, but while I was drying my hair after a shower I had this thought: could you imagine what kind of nightmare bedhead *rump must have when he first wakes up?

    Before I got a long-overdue haircut this weekend, my bedhead was horrible. I can only imagine what his looks like with the disaster that he calls a hair style. :jayzus:
