What about Trump makes you think that he isn’t capable of this? The man is a morally bankrupt piece of trash. He’s probably had people killed to protect himself. I’m not exaggerating or kidding on this. Of course he can get away with it. He has Republicans by their pussies he knows even if Democrats get their **** together and impeach, the Senate will acquit him. Where has he ever suffered consequences for anything in his life?


No one's arguing Trump is a tool, you are indeed correct. But your conspiracy theories are a bit ridiculous. The only thing more comical is almost any one on the left preaching about "consequences for anything in life" and taking the stances on other issues that they do, contradiction much?


Says the guy who unironically claims that Trump was the most ethical candidate running. Still waiting for concrete examples of Hillary’s corruption that isn’t some right wing fever dream. Trump has shown to be a cruel, pathetic, morally bankrupt narcissist that has encouraged violence against people. He has loyal psychopaths in the White House that would kill without question. What proof do you have that he’s above killing someone to protect himself? Again you’re going on a tangent bringing up the left. The conversation is about Trump try attempting to stay on topic for once.

What proof do you have of ppl who will kill without question? Just because you think it, doesn't mean its actual fact. Post a link of some credible evidence.

And Hillary's corruption speaks for itself, the political and Clinton Foundation donors she's in bed with, Benghazi, and her stance on abortion. Almost every politician is corrupt in some way shape and form, Clinton, Stein, Johnson, Trump were no exception, all beyond corrupt, but of that 4, as mind boggling as it is, Trump was the least bit. Blame your party and the others for cobbling that pathetic trio together. I blame my side for picking the most corrupt of the 18 in the Republican field.

What was Hillary's stance on abortion that made her corrupt? Now I am curious.

See you whine that people call you names, but when you bring up blatantly false lies about the Clinton Foundation and Benghazi you prove that you’re an idiot. This has been debunked so many times that it’s not even worth further discussion. Trump and Clinton have the same stance on abortion! Trump only pretended to change his stance to get the vote of religious nut jobs like yourself. Trumps corruption was already well documented from working with the mob, paying off politicians, not paying contractors and of course he BRAGGED ABOUT SEXUALLY ASSAULTING WOMEN. You voted for a monster no one else made you do it, just own up to it that your so called religious values are completely transactional.

This is legitimately insane and does not remotely aligned with reality. This is why nobody can seriously engage with you - you have no idea what the actual facts are, and you're up to your eyeballs in rightwing media. To be totally crystal clear here: you are saying things that are factually incorrect and you have yet to show any desire to nail down what the actual facts are.

Explain Hillary's involvement in Benghazi and why that makes her more corrupt than Trump. Explain what the Clinton Foundation has done that renders Hillary more corrupt than Donald Trump. Citations needed. I'll wait.

Trump reverses standards for light bulbs. Just, super dumb. Like, what even is this rant? he's talking about fluorescent lights and the energy standards are for promoting LED lights.

but, no corruption here. the coincidences of the energy lobby standing to lose up to $15 billion a year has nothing to do with it. it's about consumer choice! and looking good!

The country needs more morons like daoneandlonely, says GOP Senator Kerry Roberts from Kentucky.

Keep, M. Stoopid and Howe.

Ignorance shall set us free!

https://apnews.com/ba22eace0ec2414794c6722c5bfb5baf

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Republican Tennessee lawmaker says he supports getting rid of higher education because he argues it would cut off the “liberal breeding ground.”

Sen. Kerry Roberts of Springfield called for eliminating higher education while speaking about attending a recent abortion legislative hearing on his conservative radio talk show on Sept. 2.

Roberts specifically called out one activist who testified in favor of protecting abortion rights. He asserted without evidence that the woman’s beliefs were a “product of higher education” and claimed that getting rid of higher education would “save America.”

The senator did not immediately respond to a request for further elaboration.

Roberts also questioned funding higher education with tax dollars. He voted in favor of the state’s $38.5 billion budget earlier this year, which included money for colleges and universities.

It's like he has a checklist of things to destroy progress on, and this lets him check yet another box. Every day, there's at least one more box checked. He's unbelievably terrible at his job in so many ways. I can't imagine there's anyone worse at their job. Unfortunately, his happens to be President of the US.

This should surprise nobody. No one wants to acknowledge this, but this is the only thing driving the Republican Party. Destroy progress, roll back the clock and make things are cruel as possible regardless of what institutions get destroyed in the process. Burn it down is what Trump ran on and what all the third party voters and Democrats who didn’t vote for Hillary enabled. This is what you get. *shrug emoji*

Well, the Dems didn't win in NC last night, but I hope that 10 point swing away from Trump is reflective of the overall national mood and persists to November 2020.

Man I just want this nightmare to be over. I feel like I've aged twenty years since November 2016.

While a 10 point shift is encouraging, I am concerned about a couple things. First that it might be inflated by the attention/motivation in the race. The other race was basically exactly the partisan lean. Even if the shift is high single digits, that might not be enough to flip the Senate.

McCabe explains that Trump believed Putin over US intel about NK missiles: "Intel officials [told Trump his position] was not consistent with any of the intel our govt possesses. To which POTUS replied, 'I don't care. I believe Putin.'"

I love these stories about Liz Warren's willingness to clown and push back against the corrupt cabal of corporatists that made up the Obama administration.
