Trump supports Beto!

“Why would the people of Texas support Ted Cruz when he has accomplished absolutely nothing for them. He is another all talk, no action pol!”

I actually find myself agreeing with Trump. Must be a sign of the end times.

He actually wrote that two years ago, another indication that the Alternate Trump Twitterverse really exists. The theory: that for every Trump tweet, there is an equal and opposite Trump tweet. Sub-point: somewhere in the Alternate Trump Twitterverse, there are tweets which support every side of every issue.

The stable genius warns Congress not to interfere with him

“Congress should not interfere w/ these negotiations or I will simply terminate NAFTA entirely & we will be far better off…”

One thing confuses me here. If we will be far better off without NAFTA (in his mind), then why not just terminate it? Is he deliberately failing to do something that would make us better off? Sometimes I can look through his blustery rhetoric and figure out what he really means, but this one has me baffled.

Trump says Lake Norman is the “largest man-made lake in the world, by far”

Where does he get this stuff? To be fair, it is the largest man-made lake in North Carolina.

Well, at least he gets us thinking about things. I guess that makes him an educator in his own way. I really learn a lot from his errors!

As far as the U.S. goes, Lake Meade is, oh, about 25 times as large as Lake Norman in terms of how much water it can hold. Other lakes are #1 by other measurements. The less-heralded Lake Oahe, in South Dakota, is the largest in terms of total acreage (374,000 acres vs 32,000 for Lake Norman) and shoreline (2250 miles vs 520 for Lake Norman); while Lake Sakakawea in North Dakota currently holds the most water because Lake Meade is below capacity as a result of droughts.

Lake Oahe, by the way, has more shoreline than three of the Great Lakes!

In terms of the world, only Lake Oahe represents America on the top ten, and even that giant barely sneaks onto the bottom of the list. Six of the ten are in Canada and Russia, but the largest is Lake Kariba in Africa, which covers 40 times as much area as Lake Norman, and holds more than 100 times as much water.
