President Trump Earns the Highest Presidential Approval Level of All Time

The Small Business Optimism Index hit an all-time high. That’s the new Presidential Approval Poll.

In olden days (pre-2016), candidates for president were not so different from each other. I can remember pundits complaining endlessly about how similar the Democrats and Republicans had become. In that environment, you can easily imagine someone who voted for Candidate A warming up to Candidate B. In those simpler times, a presidential approval poll meant something.

Today, a “presidential approval poll” is little more than taking attendance. If you’re a Democrat, you disapprove of President Trump as a lifestyle choice. If you voted for Trump, you probably still approve of him because you knew exactly what you were getting. And if you are an anti-Trump conservative, you allow cognitive dissonance to rule your brain and you say he’s doing a good job but you disapprove of him anyway. David Brooks accidentally described this phenomenon in this article.

I contend that business optimism — and small business optimism in particular — are the new standard for presidential approval because “economics” captures most of what a president influences.

If a president starts a war, or threatens to start one, the economy flinches.

If a president starts a trade war, or threatens one, the economy flinches.

If a president is tearing apart the fabric of civilization in one way or another, the economy collapses.

If a big terror attack succeeds on the homeland, the economy flinches.

If immigration is allowed in large numbers, the economy feels it.

I could go on. The point is that all of the “big” issues directly influence the economy via their impact on our psychology and our resources. In a free, capitalist country, “the economy” captures all the goodness and badness of a presidency without really trying. And the measure that best reflects the future of the economy, in my opinion, is small business optimism.

Big businesses can do fine with a president who promotes policies that favor big corporations, even if the rest of the country is suffering. But when small business owners are feeling good about the economy, that means the president is doing a more bottoms-up job of getting things right. President Trump has focused on bottoms-up economics from the start, meaning jobs and lessened regulations. Apparently that is working.

I have been telling you for two years straight that psychology drives the economy, and that a Master Persuader such as President Trump can directly influence psychology and optimism. We see him doing that right before our eyes.

At the same time President Trump is “talking up” our economy, he’s talking North Korea’s economy to ruin. If you own a company that is involved in smuggling with North Korea, you probably noticed that South Korea nabbed two tankers that satellite photos spotted cheating. That’s going to be a financial disaster for those shipping companies. The psychology of the corporations involved in smuggling just changed, courtesy of the Master Persuader who has no intention of taking his boot off the North Korean economy until they lose their nukes. This approach is already causing North Korea to get flexible, at least in the talking sense.

Keep in mind that all of the personality negatives that are reflected in the old-timey presidential approval polls are exactly what is scaring North Korea into the arms of “good cop” South Korea. President Trump’s tweets didn’t cause a war; they caused North Korean flexibility, exactly as I predicted.

And if you are still worried about President Trump’s mental health, I’ll do a Periscope later today to tell you how badly the media has abused the public on that topic. For a preview, check out this interview that Dr. Drew did with Dr. Bandy Lee on her opinions of President Trump’s mental health. The media reported her as saying he was mentally unfit. That wasn’t the case. She has no professional opinion on the President’s mental capacity because she has never met him. Her primary concern is about societal violence as a result of his presidency. That is completely different from what has been reported all week. I nominate this story for the Fake News Awards. I think it can be a finalist.

Barack Obama Chooses Culture Artist Kehinde Wiley To Paint His Presidential Portrait

While Donald Trump continues to go out of his way to destroy Barack Obama‘s legacy, the 44th President of The United States is choosing to have his likeness immortalized on a canvas by none other than Kehinde Wiley.

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery has announced that Kehinde Wiley has been tapped to paint the official presidential portrait of the last real President the country has known.

Kehinde Wiley is known for his large-scale portraits of young Black men wearing the latest in Hip-Hop attire. Some of his more notable work includes portraits of The Notorious B.I.G., Michael Jackson, LL Cool J and other music legends.

For the portrait of Michelle Obama, Amy Sherald has been tapped to capture the grace of the former First Lady.

Needless to say, we can’t wait to lay eyes on the final product.

Don’t be surprised if Donald Trump taps Bob Ross to do his presidential portrait when his time comes.*

[*We know.]

Thank you Mr. President.

News in Brief: Huckabee Earns Nickel For Presidential Campaign By Painting Old Widow’s Picket Fence

STAMPS, AR—Whistling “Hail To The Chief” as he flipped the coin into the air and caught it in his palm, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee confirmed Friday that he had earned a nickel for his campaign by painting an elderly widow’s picket fence. “Hoo golly, when Ol’ Widow Parker said she’d pay me to whitewash her fence, I was nearabout gladder than a possum in a punkin patch,” said a smiling Huckabee, kissing the nickel before dropping it into an empty mayonnaise jar with the letters “PAC” scrawled on the side. “Widow Parker always tried to do right by me, tanned my hide a mess of times when I started raisin’ Cain, but she done civilized me. So faster than all get-out, I changed from my Sunday-go-t’meetin’ clothes, fetched my brush and pail, and painted that fence top to bottom, lickety-split.” Huckabee later confirmed that, on …

Ivana Trump Sizes Up Donald Trump’s Presidential Bid

Who better than an ex-wife to set the record straight about a presidential candidate? Before Dennis Basso’s show Tuesday at Moynihan Station, Ivana Trump pegged “The Donald” as a winner and said she actually gave him the nickname.
With three children — Donald, Ivanka and Eric — and what was a 35-year marriage until their 1992 divorce, the Trumps would appear to have supportive roles in each others’ lives, at least based on the first Mrs. Trump’s account. (The presidential candidate is now married to his third wife, Melania, and his daughter Tiffany by his second wife, Marla Maples, was also at the Basso show.)

News: FEC Implements One-Year Break Between All Presidential Terms As Reprieve For Weary Nation

WASHINGTON—In an effort to address the frustration, fatigue, and utter despair felt by voters, the Federal Election Commission issued a directive Friday that mandates a break of one full year between each presidential term as a respite for the weary American people.

After enduring a presidential campaign cycle that can exceed two years, as well as ceaseless media coverage of whichever politician is currently occupying the nation’s highest post, citizens become so tired and depressed that, according to FEC officials, a president-free period of 12 months must be built into the calendar so the electorate has sufficient time to recover.

“The complaint we receive most frequently from voters is that they feel completely drained going through presidency after presidency without any kind of break,” said FEC chair Ann M. Ravel, explaining that the ideal for many citizens would be a year’s reprieve from all presidential press conferences …

Deez Nuts Endorses Bernie Sanders And John Kasich For Presidential Nomination

Deez Nuts, the 15-year-old presidential candidate who has attracted national attention after polling better than some Republicans seeking the White House, tried to exercise some political muscle on Saturday,  endorsing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic presidential primary and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) in the Republican presidential primary.

Deez Nuts told In These Times that he endorsed Sanders because “he almost completely agrees on me with social issues and even some on fiscal issues.”

Deez Nuts, whose real name is Brady Olson, clarified that he was endorsing himself in the general election. He cannot constitutionally be president because he is too young but in a recent Public Policy poll, Deez Nuts polled better than several Republican presidential candidates.

No word yet on who will get the endorsement of Sydneys Voluptuous Buttocks, another presidential candidate.

Petition Calls For Jon Stewart To Moderate A Presidential Debate

Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” retirement is barely two weeks old, but there’s already a push to bring him back to the airwaves next year — this time as moderator of one of the upcoming presidential debates

“Over the last 16 years, Jon Stewart has played an influential and iconic role in covering U.S. politics and media,” the petition on Change.org reads. “We believe he should continue that tradition as a moderator at one of the 2016 Presidential Debates.”

The petition notes that Stewart has interviewed 15 heads of state, 22 members of the Cabinet, 32 U.S. Senators and seven members of the House of Representatives, as well as “scores of other political leaders from this country and around the world while establishing himself as the most trusted person in (satirical) news.”

In addition, the petition points out that with Stewart serving as host, “The Daily Show” won Peabody Awards for its coverage of the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. 

So far, more than 120,000 people have signed the petition addressed to the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that sets the locations and chooses the moderators for each debate. 

Neither the CPD nor Stewart have commented on the petition. However, the organization spells out the qualifications on its website: 

“The moderators are selected by the CPD. The CPD uses three criteria to select its moderators: a) familiarity with the candidates and the major issues of the presidential campaign; b) extensive experience in live television broadcast news; and c) an understanding that the debate should focus maximum time and attention on the candidates and their views. The moderators alone select the questions to be asked, which are not known to the CPD or to the candidates. They do not meet with the campaigns, nor do the campaigns have a role in moderator selection.”

 

At least one presidential hopeful has signed the petition:

Stewart has said little about his post-“Daily Show” plans, but his next big public appearance will be as host of WWE’s SummerSlam on Sunday.

He also reportedly intends to be active in animal rescues. Earlier this year, Farm Sanctuary announced that Stewart and his wife, Tracey Stewart, “bought a farm in New Jersey with the intention of providing a home for farm animals rescued from cruelty.”

But the creators of the petition are hoping to bring him back to television at least one more time. 

“(S)orry for pestering you so early in your retirement, Mr. Stewart!” an update to the petition reads. “I hope you take all of this as a compliment and see how grateful these supporters are for your work.”

Presidential Hopefuls Ham It Up At Iowa State Fair

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — As Hillary Rodham Clinton walked among the booths of funnel cakes and corn dogs at the Iowa State Fair, trailed by a massive pack of media and onlookers, Donald Trump’s helicopter circled the fairgrounds in the air above.

That’s as close as Clinton and Trump’s massive entourages came at the state fair, a rite of passage for any presidential candidate. The respective Democratic and Republican front-runners each drew large crowds of gawkers as Clinton sampled a pork chop on a stick and Trump gave rides to children on his helicopter emblazoned with his famous last name.

“Nice to be here!” Clinton said as she started an hourlong stroll across the fairgrounds. Former Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, who endorsed her this week and wore a straw hat to shade him from the blazing sun, accompanied her. Everywhere Clinton walked, large crowds followed her to get a photograph, a handshake or a quick hello.

Trump later made a grand entrance, landing his helicopter in athletic fields about a mile away and offering rides to children before he came onto the grounds. Almost immediately Trump was crushed by massive crowds seeking photos, handshakes and yelling encouragement. The pandemonium followed him around for roughly an hour — and during a stop for a pork chop on a stick.

“This is beyond what I expected. This is amazing,” Trump said. “It’s been a day of love.”

 

 Both Trump and Clinton avoided getting up on The Des Moines Register’s “soapbox,” a place where candidates can deliver remarks and take questions from fairgoers. A candidate can be cheered or jeered, depending on the mood of the crowd and whether supporters or opponents are on hand. In 2011 Republican candidate Mitt Romney declared from the soapbox that “corporations are people, my friend,” a line that dogged the former private equity executive.

The front-runners weren’t the only ones seeking Iowans’ support. Vermont Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has become Clinton’s chief rival and has drawn tens of thousands to his rallies, pitched his policies to counter economic inequality from the soapbox. Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, another Democrat, told voters from the soapbox that the main justification for the Iraq War was “all a hoax.” Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a Republican, donned a red embroidered apron to flip pork burgers over sizzling grills.

When a helicopter flew overhead during Sanders’ speech, he was quick with a joke. “There’s Donald Trump. What can we do?” Sanders said. “I apologize. We left the helicopter at home.”

 

The state fair typically draws around 90,000 people daily during its 11-day run every summer, giving presidential candidates the perfect opportunity to meet potential supporters for Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses.

In the Agriculture Building, Clinton walked past plates of carrots, beets and large cabbages and peered at a pair of the fair’s famous butter statues — a cow and a tribute to the board game Monopoly. As she walked around the building, children sat on their parents’ shoulders, and people cheered from the rafters above the expo.

When the pack reached Grand Avenue, the fair’s main drag, Trump’s helicopter buzzed overhead as Clinton walked past stands selling funnel cakes, corn brats and lemonade.

“There’s Trump!” shouted one man.

Before wrapping up her visit, Clinton sampled a pork chop on a stick and a lemonade. Minutes later, she boarded a black SUV and was whisked away.

Trump took questions from reporters before he came to the fairgrounds and aimed barbs at fellow candidates while touting his place atop the Republican polls. He said he was rejecting campaign contributions and was prepared to spend up to $ 1 billion on his campaign.

Trump has been criticized for not detailing his policy positions, but on Saturday he said he would soon release a policy paper on immigration.

“You are going to love me in terms of immigration and illegal immigration. We’re building a wall. Nobody is going through my wall. Trump builds walls, I build walls. We’re building a wall. It’s going to be strong, it’s going to be solid, it’s going to be policed,” he said.

He added: “We’re going to have a big door for people to come in legally. We’re going to have a big, beautiful door for people to come in legally.”

Trump also said that, so far, he has not made any political missteps.

“Every time somebody said I made a mistake, they do the polls and my numbers go up,” he said. “I don’t think I’ve made any mistakes. I’m sure I will at some point. But so far you have to say, hasn’t worked out badly, right?”

During his time at the fair, Trump inched through the main concourse. “We’re going to straighten out this mess,” he called out to the crowd at one point. People pushed aggressively to reach out to Trump. At one point, a man yelled, “Biggest crowd ever is for you!”

After sampling a pork chop on a stick, Trump hopped on a golf cart and was driven away. People chased him on foot cheering.

Silly Musings on an Even Sillier Presidential Election Spectacle

As we enter the 2016 presidential election silly season, what was once the GOP presidential candidates “Clown Car” has now grown into an oversized, overladen, over ripe “Clown Bus” packed with characters trying to attract the voters’ attention by competing to see who can offend the most people the most with their dog whistles and red meat “rallying cries.”

This writer has decided to join the silly season with a silly piece on these silly people’s silly slogans.

Readers beware. Should you decide to get off the clown bus, this may be your last chance.

Here we go:

When former Florida governor Jeb Bush announced his GOP candidacy for president, much of the attention was on the name/logo he chose to run under.

Rather than to run as Jeb Bush, he chose to run simply as Jeb!

The scuttlebutt is that Jeb Bush wants voters to forget and forgive that he is the brother of that other Bush and part of a passé dynasty.

Thus, GOP presidential candidate John Ellis “Jeb” Bush chose Jeb! from among a dozen possible name permutations.

Adding that exclamation point was brilliant. So emphatic! So definitive! Nothing more to follow — ergo nothing more to be embarrassed about!

But Jeb is not the only presidential candidate trying to put some distance between himself and his or her family legacy.

Two other dynasty candidates have omitted their last names from their campaign logos: Hillary and Rand.

It appears to this writer with a lot of time on his hands and with a lot chimeras in his head that it would be neat to figure out — if they had to pick a one-word logo — what names the candidates would pick to run under, or run from.

We have already discussed Jeb!

Let us look at Christopher James “Chris” Christie.

He has a problem.

Christie! would remind too many of New Jersey Governor Christie’s role in the “Bridgegate” scandal.

Christopher and Chris sound too much like Christie. So that leaves only James or, better, Jim!, short, slim and anonymous.

How about Michael Dale “Mike” Huckabee?

Huckabee! sounds too much like Wannabe!, so that is out.

Michael or Mike sound a little bit blah.

Dale does not go with the prestige and divinity of an ordained Southern Baptist minister.

That leaves only Huck! Strong and macho sounding — should certainly attract those women who “cannot control their libido.”

What does one do with Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz?

Born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban-born father who was later naturalized, he certainly doesn’t want a logo that would rekindle the “birther” specter that was so abundantly evoked with Barack Obama.

The Latino vote could be a problem for him. However, Cruz could solve it in the same way he handles campaign ads directed at Spanish-speaking votersen español, claro! — do not have a single word about immigration, rather about “fe, libertad, y oportunidad.”

The ads beamed at “real Americans” Americans excoriate President Obama’s executive action on immigration.

Following this “business model,” the Hispanic logo could be “Eduardo Rafael Cruz” and the logo for real Americans “Edward Ted Cruz,” or simply, Eduardo! and Ted!, respectively.

On second thought, since Cruz “salutes” the prejudiced ground Trump walks on, how about a CruzTrump! ticket.

Talking about Donald John Trump, Sr., he faces similar challenges courting the “some” Mexican-Americans who he assumes “are good people.”

Trump! sounds too much like himself and like chump, frump, rump, grump, or the dumps he is receiving from NBC, Univision, Macy’s, Serta, NASCAR, etc.

Donald! might fittingly remind voters of a sideshow comic book character.

Regrettably, Trump doesn’t have the initial “C” in his name, as Coiffe! would have been perfect.

But wait, proud Hispanics have already suggested a logo for Trump: ¡Pendejo! although the leading “upside-down” exclamation mark could pose a problem for Trump’s Anglo-Saxon keyboards.

Then there is Piyush “Bobby” Jindal.

Piyush! Nah! Pronunciations will be hard to predict and could “spell” trouble.

Jindal! Too close to jingle, jingo…Jindal.

Bobby! would needlessly risk comparisons with that great (Democratic) Bobby.

#AskBobby? Nah, that was a miserable failure.

Ditching the one-word logo rule, “Les Bon Temps Bobby” would be just fine.

Now we come to Lindsey Olin Graham.

Lindsey sounds too feminine and, when combined with Olin, well, you get linseed oil. So, I guess Graham! it is, but without the crackers.

What does one do with James Richard “Rick” Perry?

James! or Jim! are already taken. Rick! Is reserved for Rick Santorum, below.

Ooops! might be great for brand recognition but for nothing else.

Cheating a little bit and running his three names together, we get JamesRichardPerry!

With such a three-word slogan, the former presidential candidate will hopefully remember at least two of the three slogan parts.

Dr. Randal Howard “Rand” Paul has a double-edged problem.

He has to be careful to both separate himself from his father’s (Ron Paul) legacy and not to be confused with Paul Ryan.

Howard! Is a possibility, but that could remind many of “the scream.”

That leaves Rand! Which, as St. Ridley Santos at the Powder Room writes, would “trade off the cultural cache of another Rand – Ayn Rand.”

Cara Carleton “Carly” Fiorina is the only female Republican presidential candidate thus far. If successful in the primaries she may have to run against Hillary!

Fiorina! sounds flowery and feminine enough to capture some of that female vote she’ll need, chauvinistic as it all may sound and be.

Marco Antonio Rubio

Marco! would readily remind voters of the game “Marco Polo” traditionally played in a swimming pool, which is filled with water, which would bring back painful, thirst-filled memories of Rubio’s “water bottle-gate” moment.

Rubio!? Marco is not blond.

That leaves Antonio! Latinos would love the link to Marco Antonio Solis’ beautiful songs and music.

No, not Tony!

Richard John “Rick” Santorum

After last election’s embarrassing controversy with “Santorum,” Richard! John! Rick! — anything but Santorum!

Finally, we come to a group of candidates without much name recognition:

Benjamin Solomon “Ben” Carson, Sr.

George Elmer Pataki

John Richard Kasich

Scott Kevin Walker

Solomon! Elmer! Dick! And Kevin! are out.

So, let’s see how Ben! Pataki! Kasich! and Walker! play out this silly season.

That’s all folks. Now back to the real world of even sillier silliness.

Presidential Hopeful Mike Huckabee Slammed For Transgender Jokes [Photos]

Former Governor of Arkansas and 2016 presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has failed at becoming commander-in-chief once before and next year is already hinting at a bout of déjà vu.

His personal opinion doesn’t align with many of the nation’s liberal views and that usually means a nightmare for the polls. The 59-year-old politician was recently discovered to be making wisecracks about transgender people a day after the world rallied around Caitlyn Jenner.

While speaking at the 2015 National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville, Tennessee this past February, Huckabee revealed he wished he could have been transgender–just to sneak in the girl’s bathroom in school.

“Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE. I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today,’ he said. “You’re laughing because it sounds so ridiculous doesn’t it?”

He then went on to explain why transgendered citizens shouldn’t be allowed to be in restrooms once they undergo surgery.

“For those who do not think that we are under threat, simply recognize that the fact that we are now in city after city watching ordinances say that your 7-year-old daughter, if she goes into the restroom cannot be offended and you can’t be offended if she’s greeted there by a 42-year-old man who feels more like a woman than he does a man.”

Naturally, he got his ass handed to him on Twitter.

Scroll through the gallery below to see the insight slander Mike Huckabee brought upon himself. Are we still talking about the White House at this point?

This Is What Happens When Presidential Candidates Tinder With America

Let’s make sure we swipe right on the best candidate for the job.

When you think about it, the dynamic between a president and their country is a pretty serious four to eight-year relationship. And America can’t afford to hook up with just anyone. It doesn’t work out well. Sure, Tinder is a visual game, but once somebody swipes right on you, that’s when the test really begins.

So let’s combine the two grossest things in modern America, Tinder and politics, and imagine exactly what kind of conversation the presidential candidates would have with the nation once they got to the swipe right stage of the process.
