Why can’t the Dems impeach ? I get the outcome won’t be removal but this is serious shit he’s doing. This is more than asking a foreign country for dirt, this is directly destroying our democracy
First - Jesus Fucking Christ. This is complete insanity. Truly unnerving. I would hope their could be some way to deal with this in the courts or something. But Trump may have found the one way to fix the election, with no way for Congress or anyone else to do anything about it.

Second. I agree with your sentiment, but The time for impeachment is gone. We are literally 45 days away from some states to begin casting ballots. It would take them weeks just to start getting hearings going for impeachment. So that ship has sailed.

In 2016, 36.6% of all voters voted early.

http://www.electproject.org/early_2016

Given everything going into this election, I can’t imagine why that number wouldn’t double. The vast majority of voters will have made up their minds after the debates (and I’m being generous with that timeframe), so who in their right mind would want to wait until Election Day to stand in line with hundreds of others to cast their vote? At the very least to vote on a more convenient day than the first Tuesday in November.

Now I don’t know know how many early voting places there are in each state, but with all the blatant sabotage of the postal service, the Dems should be focussed on getting people to these early booths as often as possible before Election Day. Voting in person is always best, but doing so early to avoid the lines and at your convenience is even better.

No it’s not. The statement is not out of line with something he said but there’s no evidence that points towards him having made it.

Donald Trump hates poor people and people who are different from him. Donald Trump, like the rest of America and yourself and myself included, suffers from some sense of covert racism. He’s not out there, to our knowledge, making statements like “laziness is a trait in blacks.” That’s just not a thing.

He’s willing to dog whistle because it gets him votes. But so far as I’m aware he has no issue with rich black people. Just poor ones.

"From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the president’s rise—I was an active and eager participant."

Well, if you were wondering what the next line of attack was on Biden/Harris, here ya go!

Trump:
“They don't want to have cows, they don't want to have any form of animals."

"Sen. Kamala Harris said she would change the dietary guidelines of this country to reduce the amount of red meat that Americans can eat."
Well I've got some red meat for you: We're not going to let Joe Biden & Kamala Harris cut America's meat!"

I will open the floor for multiple (who cut's Pence's meat for him jokes)

Ted basically saying they can’t do anything.

I hope the Dems can mobilize a vote early campaign. I’d make it the key motto or mantra of next weeks convention

I normally don't watch drumph's news conferences but I did today

And at least heard the historical question which he did totally ignore and turned to take another question: "After 3 1/2 years how do you feel about All The Lies You Have Told?".

NOW IF ONLY more, and more Reporters start DOING THAT!!!!!

They should.
Dems are not above reproach on this.
Both parties are insisting on their pet project funds to be included instead of focusing strictly on getting the proper help to citizens in dire financial need.

Proceed with caution.

Don’t make me feel like I’m defending this animal, I’m not. I’m just making a case as to why he doesn’t give a shit about anyone, period.
Donald Trump is racist as fuck. His entire family is racist as fuck and always has been. This has been true long before he ran for president.

Yes, he says things simply for attention, and he says outlandish things to draw attention away from other things. All true. And yes, he's incredibly transactional in nature and cares first and foremost about himself.

That doesn't change that he's unabashedly racist.

The house passed their bill in May. GOP sat on it until two weeks to deadline.

There’s always going to be back and forth, but by leaving it to the last minute it gave the illusion the Dems share the blame

Nothing in the GOP proposal was worth passing

I remember when the Tea Party first gained headlines. It was a fringe part of the GOP party that was given attention by the media

Eventually they took over the party.

I think Q will do the same. I’m hopeful that enough people think this is bat shit insane and they never gain power

They passed a bloated bill they knew had zero chance of passing the Senate let alone getting signed by the President, Just as disingenuous as the Republican strategy of leaving the bloated bill twisting in the wind for 2 months, Grandstanding and nothing more. No real attempt at passing something realistic so folks receive the help they need.

Oh mah lord stop posturing yourself as though I’m claiming he’s not racist. He’s just not going out fucking saying “laziness is a trait in blacks” and regardless of whether or not we think he’s capable of saying something like that, which... of course he is... you can’t propagate fake news. He’s not some unabashed outspoken racist who genuinely hates black people. He genuinely hates poor people for sure? Don’t spread misinformation though. It only weakens the opportunity to criticize him for truths.

I imagine there's pretty significant overlap on the Venn diagram circles of those who say there's good people marching in white supremacist rallies and those who genuinely hate black people.
