Oh god no. Just cashing that paycheck for doing... nothing. Trump clearly could and may have written this mess.

This tweet puts in perspective exactly how fucking delusional this statement was.

Just to be clear, the "radical unelected bureaucrats" refers to Bill Taylor, a West Point graduate, Vietnam veteran and Ukrainian ambassador appointed by George W. Bush—who was asked (again) to serve his country by a GOP congressman turned Secretary of State named Mike Pompeo.

Again, for those that initially doubted when I said that Trump was doing Putin's bidding by pulling out of Syria.

Look at that smile.

I think you and I are of two entirely different thoughts. You’re personifying something that isn’t alive and doesn’t have feelings or morals.

Wow, that whole "I'll hold you accountable" nonsense he spewed the other day in regards to the whole Turkey situation sure didn't last long, did it?

I wonder what it's like to walk around without a working spine or brain.

Biden called the Clinton impeachment a lynching, and I believe Nadler did too. Just so gross.

She used to be Melania's press secretary. I guess she appears on Fox news often.

She has an "interesting" past, including two DUI's. One was while she was working on Trump's campaign. And other stories involving plagiarism and more, didn't have time to read all about that.

Anderson Cooper just roasted her on his show for calling the Ukraine story "theater". She said that CNN forgets that she's a human being with a personal life.

Kind of like her boss constantly bullying people and objectifying and abusing and allegedly raping women too. He forgets that women are human beings.

The military industrial complex is run by people who make the decisions to carry these things out. They are aided and abetted by willing participants in the political realm. There is blood on the hands of many people. I need not personify a thing.

Recall that this is in response to me objecting to someone saying it's offensive to suggest the United States is not a force for good. My response is that a baseline should be high suspicion of US foreign policy, and I think most should land on "outright disgust."

one of the most fun things of the last two days has been watching canadian conservatives coming absolutely unhinged at the notion that their guy could win the popular vote and still lose the election.

Canadian Conservatives (specifically at the federal level but also provincially in Ontario) are just incredibly adept at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory by repeatedly nominating losers as party leaders. With all the Trudeau garbage that came out, they should have had a reasonably easy win, but they elected a guy who is sort of like a mix of wallpaper and the creepy dude ogling girls at the food court of a local mall. Heckuva job.

Ok, but recall that my response to your post was that it’s not good versus evil. It’s a complex hodgepodge of moving parts. I was never proclaiming that it’s “offensive” to say the US is not a force for good, but this notion that the US is “evil” is equally silly. It’s not black and white. The US is good for who they’re good for, and bad for who they’re bad for.

the fact that scheer won the leadership vote in the 13th round because he was ranked as most people's second choice (and was very few people's first choice) tells you a lot about the guy right there. but on the other hand, if that hadn't happened, there's a rather strong likelihood that we'd have prime minister maxime bernier today, so all's well that ends well i guess.

The GOP are the worst. They are so attached to holding on to power that they’ll break every norm, any law and any form of decency to keep Trump (and themselves) in office

They are a cult.

So Trump declared victory in Syria and left the "bloodsoaked sands" behind like he's a colonial king.

Too bad he didn't have a photo op like the Mission Accomplished banner Dubya rolled out.

What do you mean?!?!? His deal was PERFECT! He even asked Mitch McConnell an hour ago and he also said it was perfect.

- Turkey got to invade and push out the Kurds, killing women and children along the way (Bonus!) and now occupy the land.

Trump then went hard after Turkey and assured them they wouldn't have to face any sanctions from the US. Take THAT!

ISIS fighters got some "early release" from prison. Trump is dedicated to criminal justice reform after all.

And now Putin and Erdegon have joined together to bring peace and harmony across an even larger stretch of Northern Syria.

This is the gold standard of deal making folks. Haters and Losers don't even know how to comprehend this sort of mastery.

guys.

did you know that, according to comments on conservative websites, it really was in the national interest for Trump to leverage aid to Ukraine to start an investigation into Joe Biden because Joe Biden is the frontrunner and probable nominee and it's important to know if the Democratic candidate is compromised and perhaps a Ukrainian agent?

because we can't have that.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, released on Wednesday, shows that 82 percent of black voters want to see Trump impeached and removed from office, while 53 percent of Hispanic voters and just 42 percent of white voters back this measure.


Trump appears to be struggling to gain popularity with black voters, with the majority (88 percent) disapproving of his job performance and just 10 percent seeing him as doing a good job.
I guess they still haven't realized that the Democrats are keeping them on the plantation?
