The amount of unfettered, offensive abuse he gets on Twitter sometimes astounds me. He HAS to enjoy it all.

With the recent news that he watches four to eight hours of TV, came what he watches and why he watches.

As Thangy referred to, he watches Don Lemon on CNN, partly to get his dander up which fuels his tweets.

Like the old saying goes, "You don't wanna fight with a pig because you'll get dirty and the pig likes it."

Are you originally from Nebraska or somewhere like that?

A fine folksy saying which presupposes that the pig in question is not in a position to change the lives of, potentially, billions of people for the worse.

In this case, I think it'd be plumb pitiful if a lot of us didn't make an effort to take Porky down just 'cause we might get our clothes dirty.

I agree with you, but the point is "Remember who you're dealing with." He revels in this shit.

His twitter battle with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today is a perfect example.

I’m not a big fan of latter-day SNL but I thought that was fabulous.

Not satire but I *love* the description (of the Russian matter) by Bakari Sellers at 6m37s



"This looks like a House of Cards Plot run by The Three Stooges"

:lol:

Mind you, as pointed out later, that kinda excuses them and is dismissive of the wrongdoing.

"Soft bigotry of low expectation". Like that too.

"Ask the question they asked Nixon - 'When did the President know it?"

me too.
Samantha Bee did a bit about how many of the post-Weinstein media men who've resigned did segments giving both hardballs to candidate Hillary and softballs to candidate TRUMP. there's a deeper truth there and one that "real" media isn't interested in facing.

Not exactly to brief, but I rather enjoyed this.
