Maybe. I don't imagine Trump would think twice about lying under oath.

And Trump forbidding people on his staff to testify. Yeah, nothing guilty-looking about that!

Yes, it's the refusal to allow these first hand people to testify that I was talking about. Sorry that wasn't as clear as it could have been. I think you're right about Trump lying under oath. When has he ever cared about telling the truth?

No way I wanted to watch the Fox & Friends show so reading that was much less painful but still insane (of course). The sad thing is that most people don't care about any of this, even though it's probably true. :( It's just an inconvenient truth.

It's heartening to see in the polls that Trump is trailing against all potential Dem candidates.

Hopefully, there will only be one more year of this insanity.

We need to get on with saving the planet pretty sharpish. That lead has to come from world leaders. Not that dummy.

That's my theory! It makes me sick that so many people blindly follow him. I guess that money can buy anything. So sad.

does he actually go anywhere in that helicopter? I'm pretty sure he frequently has other business in the White House on many of the days he gives his "yelling in front of the helicopter" sound bites.

sometimes it seems like the helicopter is running to provide context for his yelling.

After presiding over a far-right coup in Bolivia, the US dubbed Nicaragua a “national security threat” and announced new sanctions, while Trump designated drug cartels in Mexico as “terrorists” and refused to rule out military intervention.
By Ben Norton

One successful coup against a democratically elected socialist president is not enough, it seems.

Immediately after overseeing a far-right military coup in Bolivia on November 10, the Trump administration set its sights once again Nicaragua, whose democratically elected Sandinista government defeated a violent right-wing coup attempt in 2018.

Washington dubbed Nicaragua a threat to US national security, and announced that it will be expanding its suffocating sanctions on the tiny Central American nation.

Trump is also turning up the heat on Mexico, baselessly linking the country to terrorism and even hinting at potential military intervention. The moves come as the country’s left-leaning President Andrés Manuel López Obrador warns of right-wing attempts at a coup.

well, I don't know what I was so worried about. I mean, that NATO thing could have gone WAY worse. I mean, TRUMP could have taken his dick out. He could have taken his dick out and peed on Macron and then told himself what a good thing he did. He could have shit in a paper bag and lit it on fire & called Adam Schiff names. yeah, that would have been worse.


Maybe not WAY worse but worse.

Not the way to beat Trump. If this is the Dems way of winning they will lose. Talk fucking issues not insults your taking it down to Trumps level.

Totally agree. Just because Trump behaves like a schoolyard bully, don't regress to second grade behavior.

maybe they aren't laughing at America but they are sure as hell laughing at TRUMP.
look, Biden ain't going to do a single campaign strategy I agree with. Me, I love the Malarkey and it's in season now.
BUT, Macron and Trudeau were laughing at TRUMP because he is a ridiculous character. you could make an hour reel of soundbites of TRUMP campaigning for 2016 saying "the world is laughing at us" trying to make hay out of how much those people hated Obama. well, I say he made his "world is laughing at us" bed and I don't mind if somebody tries to make him sleep in it.

my only preference would be that they stress the World is laughing at HIM. Look, I've weathered a lot of FOX in the last 48 hours and they have a lot invested in that whole stern, upright, Best Ever President that the Democrats are JEALOUS of and can't admit won fair and square routine. well, nothing is going to reach those people. the people who CAN be reached are the people who know Hillary wouldn't hack her own emails. they know TRUMP says he never met people he's spent lots of time with. maybe they've noticed that world leaders mock him because he behaves in ways that deserve to be mocked

I don't think it's second grade behavior to point out second grade behavior. TRUMP is a joke and a dangerous joke. there might be people who could reassess if this is pointed out to them.

I do think watching two old white guys insulting each other for a year sounds about as exciting as watching "Denture Cream" commercials. Still, I don't think pointing out when TRUMP is being a dick is out of bounds by any stretch of the imagination. sure, try not to be a dick about it but if you rule that out - what's left? he IS a monumental dick.

I don't think that is nearly as dumb as Joe challenging that guy in Iowa to a push-up contest. He's sinking fast, man. everytime he's on camera now it looks like he's passing a goddam kidney stone!

While Trump is an idiot and embarrassment, it should be pointed out with class. No one should go down to Trump's level ... it's just too far to fall.

I might give Uncle Joe a run for his money.

It might be a thing, old guys suddenly into push ups (Jack Palance), but at 68 I'm doing them like never before and doing a hundred everyday. If it were legal for me to run for office here I might give a city council, er, person a run for his or her money. And if it came down to a push up contest I stand a good chance to win!
