Rough translation for the Trump cover: "Would you want his finger on the nuclear button?"

Rough translation for the Obama cover: "Obama, a citizen once again, like the others."

Israeli spies: Trump ‘golden showers’ dossier only one of many troubling reports being investigated

Intelligence agencies from around the world are investigating multiple reports that allege some connection between President-elect Donald Trump and the Russian government, according to Israeli intelligence officers who spoke to BuzzFeed.

Last week, BuzzFeed published an unverified dossier that claimed the Russian government had material that could be used to blackmail Trump. The dossier claimed Russia had recordings of Trump’s “personal obsessions and sexual perversion.” It was later revealed that the dossier had been compiled by Christopher Steele, a former member of the British intelligence agency MI6.

Intelligence agencies have reportedly been circulating several other reports regarding Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

“There have been various reports about Trump’s ties to Russia,” an intelligence officer told BuzzFeed. “The dossier is one of them, but there are others, they make other allegations. Some are more specific, and some are less. You can trust me that many intelligence agencies are trying to evaluate the extent to which Trump might have ties, or a weakness of some type, to Russia.”

Steele, who was hired by Trump’s political foes during last year’s campaign season, had become so worried by the allegations he uncovered that he sent his report to the FBI, according to The Independent. However, Steele “came to believe there was a cover-up, that a cabal within the Bureau blocked a thorough inquiry” of Trump, the paper reported.

The world mocks Trump. Well, most of the world anyway. Maybe North Korea or another similar country does not. They see a kindred spirit.

This is beyond embarrassing.

I don't often publicly call Trump by any insulting name (going high, as it were), but in my mind I often refer to him as Kim Jong Trump, since he reminds me so much of the thin-skinned, manic head of NKorea.
