Variation on Time's "Person of the Year"

Trump wonders why the Russian hacking scandal wasn't brought up before the election.

In fact, the issue was brought up several times before the election. 

Trump, who bragged that he has a very good memory, the BEST memory, has forgotten that the Russian hacking issue was discussed during the election, or he's just lying his prodigious arse off, as is his usual habit.

 The Wall Street Journal: 

 On Capitol Hill, lawmakers are girding for hearings. “I think, at a minimum, we’re going to see committee investigations,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. He has proposed a rare joint probe with the Senate, analogous to the panel that investigated the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. 

 “One of the reasons why the Russians have been so phenomenally successfully[sic] in this active measures campaign is they have this highly improbable presidential election in the United States where one of the candidates was willing to deny Russian involvement for them,” Mr. Schiff said.

The U.S.A.'s P.-e. is showing his ignorance once again.

Trump says nobody really knows if climate change is real

(WaPo) President-elect Donald Trump said Sunday that “nobody really knows” whether climate change is real and that he is “studying” whether the United States should withdraw from the global warming agreement struck in Paris a year ago.

In an interview with “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, Trump said he’s “very open-minded” on whether climate change is underway but has serious concerns about how President Obama’s efforts to cut carbon emissions have undercut America’s global competitiveness.

“I’m still open-minded. Nobody really knows,” Trump said. “Look, I’m somebody that gets it, and nobody really knows. It’s not something that’s so hard and fast. I do know this: Other countries are eating our lunch.”

Other countries are eating our lunch in solar panel and wind turbine research and implementation.

He got it partially correct.
Now Rick Perry is being touted for Secretary of Energy while an Exxon CEO is Secretary of State.

But The Orange Man has an open mind.

I'm looking forward to the first person I get to ask the question: "What would you if it was equally obvious that the Russians had helped Hillary to win?"

More than 80% of Evangelicals and born again Christians voted for the three times married serial adulterer and pussy grabber who paid $25 million to settle a fraud case where he was charged with cheating elders and young people out of money.

What more do we have to know about them than that?
