In other news, the Daily Beast reports that Trump has privately told his aides that he'll blame congressional Republican leaders like Paul Ryan if they lose control of the House next week.

Meanwhile, Trump reportedly plans to nominate former Fox News host and current State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the next UN ambassador. Nauert has no diplomatic experience.

Finally, John Bolton has found his new Axis of Evil.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is laying out a tougher approach to Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua.

President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, says those three countries form a “troika of tyranny” and he’s announcing new sanctions on Venezuela and Cuba, and says the U.S. will impose additional ones on Nicaragua.

Bolton says the countries represent “destructive forces of oppression, socialism and totalitarianism.” He says the trio “has finally met its match” with this administration.

Starving Venezuelans have finally met their match!

Bolton has clearly spent too much time in Russia recently because no one in America know what the fuck a "troika" is.

    The good news is they have realized that full out war in Syria would be a disaster, and they definitely can’t take on Iran.

    The bad news is they’ll probably invade Nicaragua and try to pull the “You can’t replace a President during a war” bullshit that they did with Bush.

    Schadenfreude alone should be reason enough for sensible minded Americans to vote for D’s. I’d love to see the Trump and the R’s cannibalize each other.

    “Former Fox News host…” ; “Troika of tyranny…”

    I reiterate my description of this administration as the “Romper Room Presidency.”

    Heather Nauert has zero diplomatic experience. That lack was brought into sharp focus when she cited the Normandy invasion in WWII as evidence of the close relationship of Germany and the U.S. Only the best people for Team Trump!

      Dear galloping galoshes, is there anyone he’s brought in who knows what they’re doing?
      My desk is developing a dent in it from the number of times I’ve performed a *headdesk* on it.
      I used to think he was just incompetent, now I’m beginning to think the man’s either the personification of evil or totally owned by people who want the US to go down the tubes at warp speed.

        Well when the only quality you look for to fill a job position is how passionately they kiss your ass, you get morons with no experience that do not know what they are doing. And truthfully, Trump does not even know what these jobs entail and has no interest in learning, so we are bound to get a brigade of buffoons.

          Very true!
