yeah, my sarcasm was dependent on the fact that people saw McConnell's denial of the phone call. I probably didn't think that one all the way through. lol.

But yes, awesome to see McConnell do that, because if there's anyone that wants to save his own power as much as Trump, it's McTurtle.

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.
don't worry BEAL, they were still on the job!!

The US is good for who they’re good for, and bad for who they’re bad for.
Appreciate this exchange the last few days

Good points all around......I lean toward LN7's theory. I'd even extend it to political persuasions within a country. Like ours.

do people really not understand that these are depositions involving classified information, and that only members of the three committees -- which include many Republicans -- are in the room and asking questions and that eventually all this testimony (redacted) will be made public and these people may likely be on TV during the actual impeachment trial?

i guess not.

well, yes, all those people that barged in today absolutely know that. They also are Trump taint-lickers that will try to push his lies in hopes that the Mayor Marmalade will smile upon them.
And just go and read any replies on IG or FB or Twitter and see how Trump's horde of morons believe anything that he says. JFC is right.

I believe 12 of the 41 angry white men already have access to the hearings.

In a hearing, every member of a committee is recognized—usually for five minutes—a procedure which precludes in-depth focused questioning. Interviews also allow the Committee to safeguard the privacy of witnesses who may fear retaliation for cooperating or whose work requires anonymity, such as intelligence community operatives.

Thank you DAVE! I was lookin all over for that!

On a different note. I know Trump is stupid. I know, I know. But I guess I figured maybe not this stupid. This is around 3rd or 4th grade knowledge right?

I did know that Gaetz was this stupid:

Or, maybe they think for themselves, and can make an informed decision without being told what to think??

Nah, couldn’t be that

I know exactly what I did........but many of you are blind to it because you agree with the Democrats no matter how stupid they are.

I am an independent. Just because many blacks or Hispanics think Trump should be impeached doesn’t mean they are blind Democrats. That’s what anitram was inferring. You can’t be an independent conservative or heck even a Republican and not agree with an impeachment inquiry. That’s stupid.

There are many independents out there, of all races, who may not like Trump, and may not like the Democrats either. Too many in this forum think if you’re not a Democrat, then you’re automatically pro Trump. Things aren’t always that simple for many people who think for themselves, issue by issue

That’s why I said what I said.

Here are the multiple layers of your statement...

Layer 1. You inferred that African Americans are Democrats.

Layer 2. You questioned whether they were too stupid or uninformed to realize their own political views.

Layer 3. You threw in a slavery reference just to give it a little zing.

well done.

You don’t read very well do you? I was responding to anitram who made a reference to the fact that if minorities are pro impeachment, they must not mind the “plantation” which is a reference to Candace Owens and other black conservatives referring to the “Democrat Plantation “ that they say most African-Americans have bought into with welfare, single parent homes, etc.

My point was that she was painting with an overly broad brush alluding to being pro impeachment was automatically pro Democrat.

I would go back and read it all again, you’re embarrassing yourself, sit down.

How in the world would you know if someone is sitting or standing when you can’t literally see them?

My sincerest apologies. I'm just so used to seeing you write that shit.
And I should be embarrassed. LMAO.
