Every other week we get an article about morale being low in the WH. I have no doubt that it is. But what I don't understand is the stupidity of people who are coming onboard now, like Mulvaney. I mean, it's one thing to have started out in January 2017 and then "discovered" that Trump is a chaotic moron, but it's quite another knowing all we all know and going in with such a degree of wilful blindness. Absolutely zero empathy for them.

Oh, i haven't had time to delve into the nuances as i missed public radio's news and discussions fri and today.
So thanks for some of that!

They sure keep effing chipping away!

I feel like you’re kinda giving a platform for nobodies who are desperate for attention.

These people want you to google who they are. Don’t.

I highly doubt that anyone's paying attention to interference.com in that regard. Maybe we shouldn't post about Trump every day either, talk about an attention whore.

I mean, you probably heard me many times during the republican primaries to insist to people to not get enraged by him and give him a platform.

We are a little beyond not talking about him as a deterrent.

And it’s a little bit bigger then just the attention of the users of this website. Internet virality (if we can call it that) is a calculable thing. When I load this thread or when anyone else loads this thread, and our web browsers load that image you’ve embedded, those links get a hit. That content just got x-interference-posters more ‘hot,’ assuming nobody goes beyond that. It’s an internet tragedy of the commons, “well I’m just one person and it’s no big deal.”

That’s cute. In the meantime Democrats better get their shit together and pick a winning candidate. Trump’s SOTU speech had an 83% approval among Independents (CBS). Economy keeps humming he’s going to be tough to beat.

He’s going to run on anti-socialism (“Venezuela”) and “infanticide” (late-term abortion).

Don’t think that won’t play with a lot of people.

The late term abortion thing...

Like, I get it - it's a medical procedure and not one taken lightly.

But was it entirely necessary for to make it an issue right now, knowing how the right would react and how many stupid people are out there who would believe whatever they heard? It could have waited till 2021.

It happened out of RBG-health anxiety and the terrifying notion of a man who lost the popular vote by 3m getting to appoint a third Justice.

Of course, there’s a presidential campaign already happening, so we can’t put justices on the court. We have rules about such things.

Until the shutdowns keep happening over Trump's wall and whatever else he wants in the future.

I want the economy to do well, but I think there will be an inevitable exposure of the cracks. Beyond the shutdowns.

There is a chance AOC could play kingmaker. Dems better be careful not to burn the primary voters with a milquetoast pick (not that Tim Kaine mattered in VP). So many Bernie supporters went 3rd Party. Many millennials will go third party out of principal

I would say the classical Bernie supporter didn’t vote in 2016, rather than voted 3rd party.

Just watched an intro to a show on Netflix about Psychopaths. They went through the 20 characteristics that are displayed by Psychopaths.
Trump checked every box.
I feel lost in this country sometimes.

pathological lying
glib and superficial charm
grandiose sense of self
need for stimulation
cunning and manipulative
lack of remorse or guilt
shallow emotional response
callousness and lack of empathy
parasitic lifestyle
poor behavioral controls
sexual promiscuity
early behavior problems
lack of realistic long-term goals
impulsivity
irresponsibility
failure to accept responsibility
many short-term marital relationships
juvenile delinquency
revocation of conditional release
criminal versatility
