I do wonder how many more times Biden will have to ramble incoherently before the press will finally admit something is up with him. There are so many sticking their fingers in their ears. Fucking Rahm Emanuel called Julian Castro mean for pointing it out at the debate. Rahm Emanuel!

It was mean.

And he should do it again. And again. And again.

We need to stop nominating candidates who are in their mid to late 70s for this job. Cognitive decline is a real thing. It's not ageist to suggest so. It's reality.

That said - Biden's gaffes have been discussed ad nauseum. His record player comment trended for days.

Find me a source where someone was actually killed in the name of Trump? And again my original question, find me some video or source of Trump supporters chanting "death to Hispanics" or "death to blacks".
Moreover, Trump shot down the violence immediately. Unlike BLM, which after weeks of dead cops on the streets gives some half-ass apology.

An "environment of hatred"? Give me a break. Pay attention to the facts, not your personal agenda. Your agenda makes it about Hispanics, we make it about lawbreaking illegals.
these aged well.

the purple is likud (netanyahu's party) and the opposition is the blue underneath.

likud is winning 29% to 24% with only 19% of the vote in, but twitter is outraged that he didn't concede anyways.

and of course he whines about the media being unfair. literally every conservative/right wing politician does and lots of left ones do too, even when they win.

as an aside, if you go to that page and ask google to translate it into english, you get some good party names:

"Justice led by my father"

"A normal people in our country"

"The pirates - because we're all in the same boat and it's all the same cruise"

(Cortes is a pro-Trump television commentator and member of Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Council.)

“Nobody loves the Hispanics more!” Trump continued, before asking Cortes a question that suggested Latinos have dual loyalties: “Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics? He says the country. I don’t know, I may have to go for the Hispanics to be honest with you. We got a lot of Hispanics! We love our Hispanics.”
I just saw a clip on Colbert with the quote from that second paragraph, and there is not enough WTF in the world to describe that.

Just watch as he becomes a hero to conservatives as some sort of PC martyr. Conservatives clearly want to be able to say racist things (and attempt rape at house parties in Bethesda) without questioning. Because first amendment.

He has a god given right to make as much money as he can and any attempt to curtail that is an assault on his freedom of speech!

SNL hires man that constantly uses racist and homophobic slurs as part of his act, and then takes an entire weekend to ponder whether or not they should let him be on their show after all. many comedians and former cast members come out of the woodwork to defend his right to say these things as "taking risks" and deplore his firing.

meanwhile, jenny slate got fired from SNL for accidentally saying the f-word one single time and absolutely nobody stood up for her when it happened.

He said this stuff on his podcast, and not a stand up routine correct ?

I assume his podcasts he’s being himself and it’s not really an act ?

Forgot about Jenny Slate as i felt bad for her at the time. She’s hilarious and seems to be a much bigger talent than this dude

I hear it discussed quite often on social media, but the major news outlets at best gloss over it from what I have seen. Then again, I'm not in DC so maybe it's a little more under the microscope there.
