  1. Yeah, right you don't care, but you went a lot further than a simple rebuttal: Clubbed her like a baby seal is not crowing?
  2. Josh Dawsey‏ @jdawsey1 15m15 minutes ago White House now saying the $25K check to soldier's dad has been sent and the media is "biased" and "disgusting."
  3. It has been reimagined several times, this one I like best: http://www.courant.com/opinion/editorials/hc-op-trump-gettysburg-address-how-he-would-deliver-it-20151231-story.html If The Donald Delivered The Gettysburg Address So, 80-some-odd years ago, the Founding Fathers — a great group of people, just great, am I right? — started this country, with the idea of liberty, with the whole point that men are created equal. And let's be clear, and I know I'm going to get in trouble for this with the media, but as you know, I tell it like it is: They meant white men. That's what they meant. And yeah, I know, they didn't mention women, for whom of course I have the greatest respect. I love women. But they didn't mention them, so what can I say? That's what they did. Now we've got a war going on. It's been a great war. It's going fantastic. Fantastic. And we're going to win, because I'm a great commander in chief, and I've assembled an incredible team, while the other side, they're a bunch of schmucks. They're schmucks, and their leaders are a bunch of schmucks. We kicked their ###, right here, on a great battlefield of that war. We won this, and we're going to win a lot more. A lot. Very, very many. We're going to designate a portion of this field to the dead, and that's fine, we should. We should. I don't think there's any disagreement on that. It's the right thing to do. But first, I think we should all give a round of applause to the people who survived. To me, those are the real heroes. Give it up for them. But you know what I really think? I don't think, in the larger sense — and I'm all about the larger sense. I am a very, very big picture guy — that we can start setting aside this part of a field or that part of a field. I don't think the government should be in the business of taking prime property and doing nothing with it, so we can have some feel-good politically correct park where nobody's even allowed to step on the grass. I don't. I just don't. And the fact is, a couple of years from now, sure, the world's going to remember what I said here — the media can't help but quote me, because, I tell it like it is — but the world's not going to remember what they did here. You know what the world won't forget? A classy, mixed use development in their honor. The kind of development that says they did a great thing, this is a great place, we're a great country, and this is what we do. We build. That's what I do. I'm a builder. You know, I spoke just this morning to someone I know who's very big in building, probably after me one of the biggest people in building, and I said, you know, we should build something really very great at Gettysburg. And he said, you know, you're right. Thank you for that. And you know what else he said? He said, Mr. President, you are so devoted. So devoted to our military, and so devoted to making our country great again. You are full of devotion. I can't even measure it. But you're also a man of the people. You're of the people, by the people, for the people. And he's right. It's who I am. It's who. I. Am. That's why I bring out such big crowds like this. Jefferson Davis, have you seen his crowds? They're small. Very, very small. Because he's small. You know what I'm talking about. So thank you all for coming, it's a great, great honor to me, personally. We have a fantastic buffet under the tent, selected by my beautiful wife, my gorgeous, really very gorgeous daughter — I caught a lot of guys eyeing her and I just want to say — guys, I get it. I really do. But we have a great spread, with a lot of very nice food, so let's eat. It's perishable.
  4. Rebecca Ballhaus‏ @rebeccaballhaus 17m17 minutes ago Sanders on Trump call to widow of fallen soldier: "Just because POTUS said ‘your guy’ I don’t think that means POTUS doesn’t know his name."
  5. Wat? About a half a dozen? Does he mean about a half a dozen per team? Steve Peoples‏ @sppeoples 50m50 minutes ago Roger Goodell: “We have about a half a dozen players that are protesting... We’re going to continue to work to try to put that at zero.”
  6. Russell Drew‏ @RussOnPolitics 7h7 hours ago Sometime in the future... Person 1: Remember that fight Trump got into with a Gold Star family? Person 2: Which one? https://twitter.com/RussOnPolitics/status/920624828427767808
  7. Ian Rapoport‏ @RapSheet 53m53 minutes ago #Giants owner John Mara says he wants everyone to stand for the anthem. “But there isn’t a quid pro quo.”
  8. Yashar Ali ?‏Verified account @yashar 54m54 minutes ago Rachel @maddow back in the lead. Monday night she bested Hannity both in the demo and overall viewers.
  9. And to make matters worse: https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/920688784475377664 Washington Post @washingtonpost 24m24 minutes ago "He didn’t even remember his name," Sgt. La David T. Johnson's mother said of Trump's call following her son's death
  10. Not if he hired Coughlin with the understanding that he had the final say on all player personnel decisions, which appears to be the case here: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/tom-coughlin-says-jaguars-dont-want-colin-kaepernick-refuses-to-explain-why/ Tom Coughlin says Jaguars don't want Colin Kaepernick, refuses to explain why [...] The Jaguars had actually been mentioned as a possible destination for Kaepernick in late August after team owner Shad Khan said that he'd "absolutely" be interested in signing the quarterback. However, Khan did make it clear the he would only be on board with adding Kaepernick if his football people recommended it, and based on Coughlin's comments, it doesn't sound like that's a recommendation that will be coming anytime soon.
  11. Link to where he said that? Doesn't Tom Coughlin make all the player personnel decisions? And Couglin is on record for saying the Jaguars don't want Kaepernick.
  12. Another confirmation of the conversation: Joy Reid‏ @JoyAnnReid 6m6 minutes ago I spoke with @RepWilson a short time ago. She was not the only person in the car and what Trump said to the Sgt’s widow was on speakerphone. @realDonaldTrump is essentially calling not just the congresswoman, but all of Sgt. Johnson’s family members who were in that car liars. And Trump’s claim that @RepWilson has taken back her account is also a lie. She just repeated it to me, and on @TheView.
  13. Four special forces troops were killed and there are claims (not yet substantiated) that the US bungled the operation. Per CNN there are many unanswered questions that should be looked into: http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/17/politics/us-niger-military-investigation-confusion/ US launches investigation into deadly Niger ambush and confusion that followed [...] Defense Secretary James Mattis indicated last week he was looking for some answers. "We will look at this and say, 'Was there something we have to adapt to now? Should we have been in a better stance?'" Mattis told reporters. But the review now underway is starting right at the beginning. A team of experts working for Africa Command will try to establish an hour-by-hour timeline, the administration official said. Some of the key questions being asked in the investigation include: Why did the intelligence indicate it was 'unlikely' the 12-man team led by Green Berets would run into opposition? Were there missed indicators that ISIS was operating in the area? Were the villagers the team met with potentially ISIS loyalists? After multiple visits to the area, why was there an attack at this time? Once the ambush broke out, how did the body of Sgt. La David Johnson get left behind? Did he survive the ambush or was he killed instantly?, Where was his body found in relation to where the gun battle happened? Is it still accurate that a "beacon" was emitting from the battlefield, leading to some indication he might have been alive for a period of time? Was the evacuation and quick reaction plan that relied on the French sufficient? If it took them 30 minutes to arrive, what about the team being in a firefight for 30 minutes with no help? What led to the decision to deploy Navy SEALS for a possible rescue? Did the wounded get the medical care they needed in time?
  14. Of course that was why he deleted it as he deletes every thread he starts that goes in a direction he doesn't like. He expected the liberals here to defend Weinstein and when that didn't happen he hit the nuke button.
