P-E Windrip has called for the US to “greatly strengthen and expand” its nuclear capabilities. The president-elect, who takes office next month, said the US must take such action “until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes”.

The president-elect, who takes office next month, said the US must take such action “until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes”.

That blunt admission of insanity was noted only by the few Americans who did not vote for Windrip.

Quote

This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals,
despise riches, give alms to every one that asks,
stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others,
hate tyrants,
argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people,
take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men,
go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families,
read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life,
re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book,
dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.

“The law requires that executive branch employees have no role in government matters that could benefit their financial interests or those of their families. It means they must give up any paid or unpaid jobs, including board positions, and sell stock.

"Meanwhile, as Trump is exempt from many of the laws that apply to his appointments, he is taking full advantage. He isn’t even giving up the limelight of the New Celebrity Apprentice, where he will remain an executive producer while in office.

“’Presidents have a right to do things in their spare time,‘” his adviser Kellyanne Conway said.”
