As Kasparov just tweeted, we've heard this speech a lot in the past 15 years, and it doesn't sound any better in Russian.

There's only 2 positives I can give on this speech, other than that it was by far the darkest and most fearmongering speech of my lifetime.

I really did appreciate at least his mentioning of the lgbtq community, and I was impressed with the audience response. And I liked his "I'm with/ for you", as he flipped Clinton phrase. As obvious and simple as it was, it was good speech writing.

Also, while then"LGBTQ" shout out was a nice moment, it's kind of negated by his pick of running mate.

I don't know who all here watches Colbert's late night show, but Jon Stewart popped up (for the second time this week), and hoooooooooly shit, he just gave one HELL of a blistering rant that I wish to God we could play over and over and over and over again for the GOP. It was so damn cathartic.

Calling them out on their lip service about "blue lives matter" while they simultaneously refused to support legislation for 9/11 first responders was a particularly great touch.

Also, regarding the right's hypocrisy in their bitching about Obama using teleprompters...did the people complaining about that also completely forget the time when Sarah Palin wrote words from a speech she gave on her hand?

I'm very curious to figure out how Trump will end crime within 12 hours of taking office.

Well, the first thing he promises to do is jail a certain corporate couple. #ImWithHerGoingToPrison

Has deep hacked your account? Because you're really trolling in the deep now.

Part of me is enjoying deep's (fairly recent) full blown allegiance to the Republican Party, it's refreshing as he's really put it out there and announced himself as one to fill INDY's absence.

As a rule, I would try to avoid taking Kasparov seriously on anything - even if he may have a point in regards to Trump's speech.

2016 US Presidential Election Thread Part X

So next week I'm expecting a 4 day liberal arts lecture and sketchy Atmospheric Science class where we make a lot of Americans feel guilty.

As opposed to a week of telling Americans they could die at any moment at the hands of dark people and/or a candidate who worships a fake monster in the ground?

I'm expecting 4 days of portraying Trump and his followers as somewhat simple.
