    I would buy Tadao Ando's Church of the Light and keep it on my private island just to get on Laptop Warrior's nerves.

    They are kind of right, in as much as being good at Twitter and blathering half cooked notions to adoring crowds are skills that are worth almost nothing, which is what Trump insists he's getting paid for the next four years (nevermind the billion dollar security tab). Somehow, I have a hard time believing a career businessman wants to work this hard for nothing, but oh well.

    At the upcoming state of the union speech, he say 'I have the bigliest hands and vocabulary of anyone east of the Mississippi, and the Guinness record for most tweets by an elderly bloke.'

    Laughable hyperbole from this putz. What is he going to do when one person who is less anti-Semetic than him shows up on the scene? He will switch into raving anti-good sportsman mode to diss the other guy.

    Awright, if McMaster does something heroic in every chapter like wrestles the nuclear football out of Trump's tiny fingers, then it should win a Pulitzer.

    His next book should be an amazing read. The working title is ''Derelicts on Duty: Donald Trump, General McMaster, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies that Lead to the (TBA) War.'' Preorder it today.

    Plus why would they leave the comparative safety of China to go to Kuala Lampur when half of the assassination team (three NK men) are still on the lam, possibly right there in Malaysia. High risk to gain what?

    Ivanka showed her business savvy by ending her employment with the fashion label last month. The people still expending energy promoting it--most notably Kelly-Anne Conway and fanboys--come across as fools.

    If anyone wants to see the Trump supporters get their undergarments in a bundle over the serious topic of womens fashion, head over to the hilarity at the JT story about the Ivanka Trump clothing line. I can't figure out what the fuss is about given that Ivanka quit that job last month, but the jungle holdouts who didn't get the message and are going ballistic about ladies wear sure are good for laffs.

    Bwa ha ha, a bunch of dudes (oh and honorary dude Conway) rushing around defending mediocre womens garments. Looking forward to the day Chinese knock off brands like Iwanna Tramp appear on the market. Coming to a supermarket clothing section near you.

    @Yubaru, some of "the one's responsible" are still being rounded up in Malaysia. One NK man about 47 years old was just arrested, and three other suspects are on the loose, possibly still in the country. So they very well may face justice. Though you probably meant the top of the family-state hierarchy.

    Well, even if these ladies didn't plan it themselves, they did commit the crime and were coached by others who may be lurking around in the background on security footage. Surely they are not going to be released after the seven day investigation period without identifying who set them up. Otherwise, all types of killers are going to claim they thought their gun was full of blanks for a film project.

    Zing on Obama in 2012.

    Even if the poster meant 2008 when Obama was a US senator, but that still wouldn't be illegal.

    Providing a definition of "private citizen" would help the poor Neanderthals pecking out "words" on their "keyboards."

    Trump "learned" how to keep kissing up for a good decade now. In 2008, he said this about Putin to the Russian magazine Chayka:

    "I respect him. He does his job well. Much better than our Bush."

    Bass, if your busy schedule permits a 1000 word detour about Bush vs. Putin through a Trump lens, let's hear it.

    It's being said that a third figure, a male Malaysian supposed boyfriend of one of the women, has been arrested. So far the three arrested suspects had three different national passports, none of which was N. Korean. But Kim Jong Nam once tried to enter Japan on a Dominican Republic passport, so that seems to be par for the course.

    NHK news devoted a lot of airtime to this, such as reporting his gambling expenses running from the tens to hundreds of millions of yen in a normal casino visit (no word on his winnings but over the years it's safe to bet he lost a lot of money). Odd that the assassins didn't try this at a casino, but then again VIP areas of casinos may have super tight security with all the money floating around.

    Hopefully the youngest exiled family members, studying in Europe and/or living in China, will stay safe.

    'He's pretty solid...Good choice!'

    Goresuch the SC nominee called Trump's remarks disheartening and discouraging. More accurate with each passing day.

    The media serves a hugely valuable educational purpose. For example, the way Pence found out that Flynn was lying was by seeing it in the Washington Post a week ago per ABC news. On behalf of the vice president, let me thank the media for keeping him in the loop. I'm sure he deeply appreciates the Wapo's help in uncovering Flynn's duplicity.

    "loaded with integrity" would be continuing to call Elizabeth Warren the idiotic nickname "Pocahontas"? Sweet jeezus...

    Amazing that David Petraeus is on the shortlist as a replacement. You remember, the guy who slept with his own biographer and gave her access to classified information, costing him his job. Does team Trump have anybody (in America) in charge of "severe vetting" for these picks?

    Conspiracy theories duly noted, though didn't exactly get the reference to the Porco Rosso flying pig anime.
