Not just talk this time.
Perhaps we need to establish a national media moratorium/gag order on TFG. Enough is enough of this awful hateful spiteful non-truth rubbish that seems to spew constantly from the far-right. How much more can the U.S.A. take of the (fill in the blank)___________TFG. *sigh* ? Also, why does no one talk about the fact that TFG is 76? Isn't that age also considered "old"?
Republicans take note; when your daughter limps home bowlegged with a black eye, she'll know she took one for your team.
Sick, sick, sick to my stomach and in despair. Why did I have children? They will spend their lives in a totalitarian klepto "shithole" country...
America is a sick, sick place. This clip of Tump, coming onstage, getting a standing ovation from the crowd, tells us everything there is to know about the future. And about who we really are, inside. Not citizens, not human beings. Deep inside, who we are and what we truly admire and aspire to be: death camp guards.
So here we are: The top candidates for the Republican 2024 ticket are a 2x impeached, mysoginistic, delusional 76-yr old found liable for sexual abuse , and a mini-Mussolini wannabe from Florida. The potential candidates that are somewhat reasonable and not in the cult are polling in the low single digits. This is today's Republican party!
Will Saletan was an outstanding acquisition for The Bulwark stables.
RFK Jr will fade quickly. Right now, many people do not know about him. They most likely associate his viewpoints with those of his father and uncles Ted and John. Once people realize that he is a loony conspiracy monger he will be history.
I knew they would say that at least he's not a rapist. But lets be real, the only reason it wasn't full-on rape is that she repelled him and escaped before he penetrated her. I really believe this sleazy traitorous scum will not be the Republican nominee. Once each subsequent indictment comes out, he will be further revealed as the criminal lowlife he is and his support will diminish.
Let us not forget what else happened after the access Hollywood tape was released. Less than an hour later wikileaks started dumping John Podesta e-mails and the MSM obediently jumped on this shiny new bauble greatly mitigating the fall out from the tape. I expect it was planned to hold these e-mails until just before the election but they had to be dumped early as a distraction. They had the reserve of Wieners laptop which the FBI had looked at weeks before Comey gave republicans the heads up that ultimately cost Clinton the election. If you believe Comey he did this because someone in the NY office of the FBI had threatened to leak it.
"'When it comes to Donald Trump, the New York legal system is off the rails,' declared Lindsey Graham."
Actually, the New York legal system is working exactly as it's supposed to: trump is tried by a jury of his peers, the people who've known him longest and best.
What have we become that such a tawdry man is a persistent threat to us?
If it's really October 7, 2016, again, please: Would everyone just vote for Hillary this time.
Hillary Clinton was not a candidate for president that I particularly wanted to vote for back in 2016, if for no other reason (though there were others) than I wasn't interested in any more family dynasties at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. But my take on Trump was exceedingly simple when he became the GOP nominee, since it only involved 2 main elements:
1. I wouldn't trust him behind closed doors, or even in broad daylight, with my wife and daughters.
2. I wouldn't trust him with my money.
So, why the f**k would I trust him with the whole damned country?
I believe there is more than enough accumulated evidence now that those simple criteria were more than appropriate. But the GOP simply can't get past this guy, and based on their lickspittle subservience to him and *his voters* since 2016, why the f**k would I trust any of them with the same task? And the answer to that is that I would not.
Not just #Never Tump.
The Trumpite mantra "We know he's flawed!" always carried the implicit corollary: "Therefore you have no moral right to object to his flaws."
MAGA-land was willing to give unlimited ethical indulgence to Trump -- under the claim that it was all for a higher purpose that he was uniquely capable of serving. And then MAGA-land declared that holding Trump to any ethical standards outside himself was the greater evil.
Oh, and it has something to do with defending Christian values.
You ask how long it will take for Kaitlin Collins to bring up yesterday's guilty verdict. My question is why is CNN allowing this interview to happen in the first place? Why is CNN giving this criminal air time at all? Forgive me as I may not have all of the correct legal terminology, but wasn't he Indicted in NY on a hush money fraud scheme? Wasn't he found guilty YESTERDAY for assault and abuse also in New York? Doesn't he also have current ongoing investigations in Washington and Fulton Counties in Georgia? Isn't he a party to at least three other criminal investigations including two for a COUP against our country? I'm flabbergasted and a little bit disgusted that CNN would allow him any kind of stage at all.
But, to answer your question, I believe Kaitlin will ask him about yesterday's verdict within the first ten seconds of the interview. I also believe she will handle the entire Town Hall with savvy, smarts and success.
Hilarious that a day ago there was no story for Trump to tell--don:t know her, never met her--but now he has been deprived of his right to defend himself. Boo hoo.
