It's fascinating that the only thing that seems to bind the entirety of the Right is their abject hatred of taxes.

Mostly what binds the right together is absolute hatred for the left. And contempt for the other side is pretty much what binds the left together these days as well.

It's all about what you're against.

I think this holds a lot of truth, that’s why to Irvine’s point, how was Trump not enough?! Whereas I find Phil’s optimism that it’s really about policy refreshing, unfortunately it simply isn’t true.

I’ll add one thing to this: abortion. For that reason, some blind loyalty also comes from appointment of the right SCOTUS Justices.

Trump also said he helped stop planes from falling from the sky.

It'd be better than nuclear war to be fair.

I think it’s best we keep Trump from talking to anyone. Shame can’t take him off Twitter

Wikileaks has published the entire (copyrighted) PDF of the Trump book. Unsurprisingly.

Actually I think that's quite surprising. They're supposed to be about secrets, classified government documents, news leaks, etc.

This is just sabotaging someone's product that was going to be available for all to buy.

I guess Wikileaks doesn't have a newly found republican bias 🤷🏻*♂️🤷🏻*♂️

They haven't been just that in a long time.

Assange is a garbage person and always has been.

Well there have been political catastrophes that scream bias, but this literally has no excuse or re-description. It's "without a doubt."
