The Long, Twisted, and Bizarre History of the Trump-Russia Scandal

Here's the timeline you need to keep track of the controversy.

The Trump-Russia scandal—with all its bizarre and troubling twists and turns—has become a controversy that is defining the Trump presidency. The FBI recently disclosed that since July it has been conducting a counterintelligence investigation into possible coordination between Trump associates and Russia, as part of its probe of Moscow's meddling in the 2016 election. Citing "US officials," CNN reported that the bureau has gathered information suggesting coordination between Trump campaign officials and suspected Russian operatives. Each day seems to bring a new revelation—and a new Trump administration denial or deflection. It's tough to keep track of all the relevant events, pertinent ties, key statements, and unraveling claims. So we've compiled what we know so far into the timeline below, which covers Trump's 30-year history with Russia.  We will continue to update the timeline regularly as events unfold. (Click here to go directly to the most recent entry.) If you have a tip or we've left anything out, please email us at

Trump is a 70 year old arrogant, ignorant man child who would rather bully than listen and learn.

Trump’s introduction to Colombia: Hilarious, deeply offensive and self-destructive

Colombia was never properly introduced to US President Donald Trump until Thursday. After it was, Trump had made such a fool of himself that he had lost control of one of the United States’ most important strategic allies in the region.
I’m still trying to grasp Trump’s epic blunder, so I will stick to my first impression as a foreigner, for now.
From a Colombian perspective, Trump’s speech was hilarious, incredibly stupid and profoundly offensive — the 30-minute rollercoaster ride of an apparent madman.

The funny part: Trump displays extraordinary idiocy

When twice(!) he referred to Colombian “cocoa,” the bean you make chocolate with, instead of coca, the base ingredient of cocaine, Trump displayed a stunning ignorance of what he was talking about, drug trafficking.
Trump made Colombia, a nation of 49 million, aware that the president of the United States of America has absolutely n.o.  f.u.c.k.i.n.g.  i.d.e.a.  what he is doing.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos took advantage and made it clear he knows exactly what he’s doing. He took the US president for a spin.

The smag bastard, it's business as usual on taxpayers dime

Trump registered eight companies in Saudi Arabia during campaign: report

President-elect Donald Trump registered eight companies during his presidential campaign that appear to be tied to hotel interests in Saudi Arabia, according to a report in The Washington Post.
Trump registered the companies in August 2015, shortly after launching his presidential bid, according to The Post.
The companies were registered under names such as THC Jeddah Hotel and DT Jeddah Technical Services, according to financial disclosure filings.
The names of the companies registered appeared similar in pattern to how Trump named other companies connected to hotel deals registered in foreign cities, according to the Post. Trump names companies after cities in the state in which he is dealing with. Jiddah, also spelled Jeddah, is the second-largest city in Saudi Arabia, located on the Red Sea coast about 60 miles west of Mecca.

This might possibly be the most amazing card "trick" (?) you have EVER seen!  It was developed by the magician after the terrorist attacks in Paris , France .  Supposedly, he did this in front of Penn and Teller on TV and in other venues with professional world class magicians and they just shook their heads in disbelief.  No one professional who has seen this in person has the vaguest inkling how this was possible, and again, "up close and in person!" This is truly a must watch.

Thanks Pat

Walking can add minutes to your life.

My grandpa started walking
five miles a day when he was 60.
Now he's 97 years old and
we don't know where the hell he is.

I like long walks,
especially when they are taken
by people who annoy me.
The only reason I would take up walking
is so that I could hear heavy breathing again
  I have to walk early in the morning,
  before my brain figures out what I'm doing..

I joined a health club last year,
spent about 400 bucks.
Haven't lost a pound.
Apparently you have to go there.

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise',
I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

The advantage of exercising every day
is so when you die, they'll say,
'Well, she looks good doesn't she.'

If you are going to try cross-country skiing,
start with a small country.

I know I got a lot of exercise
the last few years,......
just getting over the hill.

We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Every time I start thinking too much
about how I look, I just find a Happy Hour
and by the time I leave, I look just fine.

Thanks Randy

What Donald Trump Needs to Know About Bob Mueller and Jim Comey

The two men who could bring down the president have been preparing their entire lives for this moment.

When Jim Comey first learned that Andrew Card and Alberto Gonzales were on their way to the George Washington Hospital room of John Ashcroft, his first call for help was to Bob Mueller. Comey knew that the White House chief of staff and the White House counsel would try to push the attorney general to renew the National Security Agency’s Terrorist Surveillance Program, code-named STELLAR WIND. Comey, who was then Ashcroft’s deputy, had spent the preceding weeks leading the charge against the White House and especially Vice President Dick Cheney against the program, which the Justice Department’s lawyers had determined was illegal. For days, Comey had weathered intense pressure to reauthorize STELLAR WIND, the debate escalating as the program’s expiration date neared. Cheney’s office had told Comey in no uncertain terms that if the program wasn’t OK'd, Americans would die—and their blood would be on Comey’s hands.

That night, though, Comey knew he had an ally to call. He asked Mueller, the ramrod-straight FBI director, to meet him at the hospital, but as his own car raced toward the hospital—its grill lights flashing and siren wailing—Comey realized that Mueller wouldn’t make it before the White House officials, so he asked for help: Don’t let them remove me, he asked Mueller.

One night, the girlfriend confided Giovanni  that she was pregnant.

Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his own marriage, he said he would pay her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child.  Furthermore, if she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.

She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born.  To keep it discreet, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write 'Spaghetti' on the back.  He would then arrange for the child support payments to begin.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. 

'Honey, she said', you received a very strange post card today.  Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later he said.  The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written:

Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.

Three with meatballs, two without.


Thanks Norman

I think everybody would love to do this once!!!

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador
President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.
The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.

Snotty Receptionist

Yesterday I had an appointment to see the urologist for a prostate exam. Of course I was a bit on edge because all my friends have either gone under the knife or had those pellets implanted.

The waiting room was filled with patients.

As I approached the receptionist’s desk, I noticed that she was a large unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo wrestler.

I gave her my name, and in a very loud voice, she said,

All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at me, a now very embarrassed man. But as usual, I recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied,


The room erupted in applause!


Thanks Ivan
