People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall. They know how important it is!
Come the 2020 election, Trump is going to tell people that he did build the wall and the fake news media is suppressing that to make him look bad, isn't he?

I refuse to believe that Trump's spelling problems are the result of anything other than an idiot brain. Unless he ever calls the Mueller investigation a witch cunt. Then he may know something no one else does.

Thing is, if Trump ever has a microphone failure/blooper like old Ronnie, nobody would notice, because it's always the same old blathering.

If a recording turns up of Trump calling Hillary the c-word, or Obama the n-word (and I'm sure he has)...what's it going to do, cost him votes among women and African-Americans? They're not exactly his "base".

I think his support is locked in at a solid 40% and nothing will ever change it, higher or lower.

IMHO, openly confirming to abuse your social status to harass women physically is MUCH more condemning than once calling a woman a cunt, though that's bad enough. But what did that revelation change in the voter's minds?

You know, at the time I was already living in Germany, the first battlefield to be grounded in a cold war gone hot, and I wasn't amused.

Interesting--thanks. Guess he doesn't want anyone copy/pasting his words on the subject...it would be brutal to be held accountable for a claim that Donald Trump possesses basic intelligence (or more, as Adams has been claiming since before November 2016).

Trump won white women 52% to 43%. Never forget. The term "white women" brings up all sorts of associations, but sometimes it's useful to picture Tulsa, OK in late spring, 1921.

white women (not all, of course, just moreso than minorities) rely on their husband for status. If the husband is a racist, misogynistic sob, the wife will probably also be so inclined. Education fixes that. Being in a culture where men are often no more than sperm donors tends to toughen up women and broaden their POV. At one time, women membership in the KKK was in the millions.

It is very hard for educated whites, mostly liberal, to convince minorities we are really trying to work together with them. For every positive contact, they receive a dozen negative ones.

Today's set of lies from the Liar-In-Chief:

3. The release of some of Iran's frozen overseas assets was a fundamental condition of Iran's acceptance of the nuclear rollback agreement; you know, the one that Trump blew up for no good reason. So we did get something (quite a lot, really) from the transaction, even if one happens not to agree with the method.

https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...-18-billion-c/

And no, Donald, IMHO $5 billion for your stupid fucking wall is 5 billion too much.

The culture that has come to realize that many young men in their communities are unwilling husbands and fathers, and dealing with them, taking care of them in all ways is a complete waste of time that can be spent on caring for their children and earning a living. There is no racial test for this situation. It happens across the board in communities where jobs for men are scarce, drinking and drugs are an escape from bleak reality. Those men often mature over time and even, sometimes contribute something, but women are very often left on their own to deal with parenthood. The attitude grows in those communities that men are just a waste of space in a home, more trouble than they are worth.

I nearly died of laughter this morning.

I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!

Are there red-hatted morons stupid enough to believe this steaming pile of shit tweet? And yes, that is a rhetorical question. Of course there are.

Next he's going to be bragging that Canada is chipping in as well.

Other than the idiocy, which speaks for itself, is he threatening Cohen's family in that last part?:


"I never directed Michael Cohen to break the law. He was a lawyer and he is supposed to know the law. It is called “advice of counsel,” and a lawyer has great liability if a mistake is made. That is why they get paid. Despite that many campaign finance lawyers have strongly......
...stated that I did nothing wrong with respect to campaign finance laws, if they even apply, because this was not campaign finance. Cohen was guilty on many charges unrelated to me, but he plead to two campaign charges which were not criminal and of which he probably was not...
....guilty even on a civil basis. Those charges were just agreed to by him in order to embarrass the president and get a much reduced prison sentence, which he did-including the fact that his family was temporarily let off the hook. As a lawyer, Michael has great liability to me!"

Anyone out there that can provide a link to an analysis of USMCA that shows how much money "we" will be saving?

So his expert legal analysis is that Cohen pleaded guilty to something that’s not a crime, and the courts were perfectly OK with that. Gotcha.

There's black-hole level bullshit density in that short statement, including this:
Quote:
Asked if he had any concerns that Trump was implicated, Hatch told CNN: “The Democrats will do anything to hurt this president.” Informed it was alleged by federal prosecutors in New York, Hatch said: “OK, but I don’t care, all I can say is he’s doing a good job as president.”

I can't tell if Trump was threatening Cohen's family, because I can't work out what "including the fact that his family was temporarily let off the hook" refers to.

Anyone?

Michael Cohen's father-in-law is Fima Shusterman, a naturalized citizen originally from Ukraine who has been mentioned in connection with a couple of investigations but never charged with anything, as far as I'm aware. There are at least some reports that he did some business directly with Trump though, so I'm not entirely sure if this accusation is pure projection like some of his other statements are.

Isn't Shusterman involved in the phony taxi medallion case in New York?

Yep. (I believe Kristol was a Never-Trumper from the beginning.)




(In other news, thanks to those who answered about the possible meaning of Rancid Clown's phrasing in re Michael Cohen's family.)
