I assume its the throwing of pots & pans and ashtrays followed by 38 seconds of wild animal sex then loud snoring.

The state was having a nice blue streak. Madison, blue collar workers, unions, and then with Scott Walker, and Reins Pubis, and Paul Ryan, came an unleashing of corrupt dirty tricks out of the state house.
I'm afraid for 2020 election shenanigans here.
Nice!!! I work in Appleton but live in Green Bay.

My thought is this is all a good cop bad cop type routine.

Kellyanne will need somewhere to fall after this is over and with George being on the other side it gives her someone and somewhere to land.

They’re both grifters

Anyways, we should now see what Donald Trump’s many fridges look like. You fucking kidding me... how anyone can see this commercial and not wonder how Donald Trump is 100x worse is beyond me.
Of course it's manipulative. The issue is never that the Republicans are worse. Anyone who's not already a full-throated GOP voter can see that. The issue is trying to convince people that the Democrats aren't also out of touch and unable to get anything done to actually help people. And that is the thing the Democrats always have to fight against, because they refuse to stand up for anything beyond "look at the alternative!" Pelosi is the perfect avatar for portraying Democrats as smug and out-of-touch.

The first time around, they could have fought, but they decided to wait for next time:



Next time comes around:



It's always the promise of the next time with the Democrats. You could criticize them as being feckless, unable to understand negotiation and leverage, but this happens far too frequently for me to believe it's not deliberate.

If they actually cared about his wealth and privilege the whole delusion would be shattered. They'd have to see his narcissism too, and that ain't ever going to happen.

I think they're also trying to get Democrats who are really suffering financially during the pandemic. The ad portrays the highest profile Democrat as not giving a damn about their suffering.
Any idea as to when this interview with Pelosi happened?

For many Trump supporters his racism, sexism, anti-imigrantism etc overshadow his wealth, and narcissisim. HH
How many know he got $$$ from his dad when starting out as a relator.

I think it's easy for a very wealthy man to say the things he said. It does create the impression of an ivory tower mentality. I really don't like what he said about domestic violence. Yeah, put up with that because at least you're not dead. That is repulsive to me.

Trump is disgusting, the way he demeans female reporters in these briefings. Yes he demeans all reporters. But lately with his keep your voice down, nice and easy, and more to female reporters. He just did it again.

I wonder if he speaks to Melania that way.

I'm sorry but are there really on-the-fence/undecided American voters who can truly be persuaded to vote one way or the other who are going to be astonished that Nancy Pelosi is rich? Like, really?

There aren't poor people in the Senate, the Congress or the boardrooms of America. The question is really how rich they are relative to one another.

There are people who justify their vote for republicans because they hate the democrats. Nancy Pelosi being a unlikeable as she is (and Chuck Schumer) can be drawn directly to their political smugness. Similar to Rubio Cruz, Trump, etc.

Joe Biden doesn’t have that smugness, but then again neither did Clinton really.

Some of what I've been saying about who exactly is protesting and organizing the protests.

Quote:
Lest one think this is a rudderless, organic movement of misguided privileged citizens, think again. The rallies were organized and funded by wealthy, right-wing political groups like the Tea Party Patriots, the Devos-backed Michigan Freedom Fund and the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a GOP-supporting, gun-rights organization. Wisconsin’s much-publicized protest didn’t take place in Milwaukee, where the black population has been ravaged by COVID-19. Instead, it took place in nearby Waukesha County, which is 89.5 percent white and only 1.4 percent black.

There is one other interesting fact about the Waukesha County, home to the downtrodden, huddled masses who are desperate to open up their decimated local economy:

Waukesha County is the wealthiest county in Wisconsin.

As you said, those people hate the Democrats, and are therefore not voting for them.

What "undecided" (because really, we just don't know enough at this point to make an informed choice about Donald Trump) voters will be swayed by Nancy's fridge?

Some of them will vote for a Joe Biden who says Chinese virus and criticizes Trump for being weak on China, because Joe is a strong man and dont you forget it.

It’s all a game lol
