    Their other favorite thing to do during particularly bad news cycles for Trump is to start distracting with rapid fire personal attacks to avoid having to discuss the issues. Makes it easier for them to deny that these things happened later.

    Also- did you know that you haven't made a single point in 6 months? It's weird- I would have sworn I had seen you make several points. But I guess not.
    Have you still not realized, despite being specifically told numerous times, that no one here gives a fuck about discussing anything with you, and that your purpose is entertainment?

    Tell us which part of this keeps confusing you so much, so that we can help you understand. Because understanding things is tough for you. Which is fine, because that just adds even more to the entertainment.

    Hey, I can do 3 pull ups too.

    Max pushups? I'm up to around 70. I want to hit 100 by August.

    I generally only get drunk once a week at the most. Usually around football season.

    This is correct.

    It seems that Manafort is using the leaks as an excuse to get shit tossed.

    I'll grant him this: he's VERY good at his delay tactics.

    Presumably he's just hoping to delay until after the midterm elections as Trump is unlikely to act before then.

    What's interesting about all of this is that those questions clearly covered the dangling of a Pardon to Flynn. You would think that would give Manafort major pause. After all, if Mueller's team is already honing in on the use of the Pardon power to obstruct justice- that would be a powerful disincentive for Trump to Pardon Manafort. But Manafort isn't acting like his odds of a Pardon just went down- which makes me wonder what has him feeling so confident.

    He's facing what, 340 years in prison? At this point he's willing to try everything. His trial is coming up soon, I don't think this leak is going to push that back.

    That's what is so confounding about his strategy- he's willing to try anything except a plea deal with Mueller's team. And Mueller has demonstrated that his team offers exceptionally generous terms to those who agree to cooperate. At the same time, they already have Gates. Every day there's a risk that Mueller won't need Manafort any longer- which means no plea deal.

    He's either got some powerful disincentive for a plea deal, or he's very certain he's going to get a Pardon.
