Ethics paperwork? No, no, no... You just have to trust him. Did you not see all those folders full of papers from that press conference. Man, just cut the guy some slack..../s
President Donald Trump didn’t provide government ethics officials documentation to show he had carried out his plan to step away from his businesses, a Democratic lawmaker said, something every other president since 1978 had done prior to inauguration.

...and yet we're focused on DAPL and Keystone.
Solar energy in the US employs more people than traditional coal, gas and oil combined, a report has found, in a revelation that could undermine Donald Trump’s argument that green energy isn’t good for the economy.

"increase jobs, increase economic growth, and tap into America’s energy supply more."

Except they wont. Neither provide large numbers of permanent jobs, and Keystone specifically has very little to do with American resources. It's piping Canadian resources south for export, unless we're tapping into that pipeline somehow or I'm completely missing something Keystone does little for us.

We also keep hounding on this idea that we need to tap into our resources more, completely bypassing the drastic change that's already occurred with energy import/exports. But whatever right? This will just lead to more protests and even more diminished approval for the thin skinned leader. Surely he'll handle the criticism well.
President Donald Trump took steps to advance construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, marking the start of an era with fewer constraints on the oil industry to the chagrin of environmentalists who have bitterly fought the projects.

A quarter of the US refining capacity is on the Gulf coast, so some of the Canadian oil shipped through Keystone will be used domestically. But most of it will be shipped out. Most of the new supply of Canadian oil will come from the recently-approved Line 3 pipeline from Alberta to Superior.

LOL.....hadn't really thought about it, but it describes a lot of people in DC I'd think. All those "not a scientist" but I'll still pass legislation without meeting with a scientist types.
How did a psychology term become a partisan trending topic?

I.....am not sure if this is better or worse?
The man behind Donald Trump’s official presidential tweets is a former golf caddy who has repeatedly promoted fake news stories and conspiracy theories on social media. The official President of the United States (POTUS) Twitter page was updated on Sunday to confirm the messages are being posted by Dan Scavino, Mr Trump’s “assistant” and Director of Social Media.

LOL.... after repeatedly telling the left to quit whining about the election, Trump still can't stop whining about the election.

I'm sorry, delayed? I thought we didn't even need these ethics reviews, we needed to just shut up and confirm everyone. Now we're waiting on ethics concerns....interesting....
Senate Democrats had wanted the review in hand before this week's confirmation hearings.

Jobs like these put the president in a bit of a pickle. He could bite on this and praise his presidency as being the leading cause of job creation, but at the same time he'd have to complain about how these jobs are low wage and mostly part time. So is this something he can take credit for while simultaneously arguing that they are bad jobs, or does he just stay away altogether.


....additionally, since it's 10k jobs, does he tout how high the numbers are when in 2014 they brought on 25k jobs after Obama was re-sworn in, and risk the comparison?
Kroger Co. on Monday said it planned to add 10,000 new permanent jobs in 2017, almost exclusively at store level.

Easy. Trump will claim he created the jobs, and Spicer will say the 2014 numbers are fake news that detracts from his alternative facts.

Damn paper trails....

Indeed, he wrote, Aetna’s decision to pull out of the exchange business in Florida was “so far outside of normal business practice” that it perplexed the company’s top executive in Florida, who was not in the decision loop.

“I just can’t make sense out of the Florida dec[ision],” the executive, Christopher Ciano, wrote to Jonathan Mayhew, the head of Aetna’s national exchange business. “Based on the latest run rate data . . . we are making money from the on-exchange business. Was Florida’s performance ever debated?” Mayhew told him to discuss the matter by phone, not email, “to avoid leaving a paper trail,” Bates found. As it happens, Bates found reason to believe that Aetna soon will be selling exchange plans in Florida again.
Aetna claimed this summer that it was pulling out of all but four of the 15 states where it was providing Obamacare individual insurance because of a business decision — it was simply losing too much money on the Obamacare exchanges.
