The Trump Years- Every day something more shocking than the last!

Recommended Posts

Anybody else watching the Zuckerberg hearing?  Most representatives are concerned about Libra being used for nefarious purposes.  Others have shown concern about FB taking money for ads that to promote untruths. 

So it was a real eye opener that Andy Barr, Kentucky, biggest concern is the violation of first amendment rights and the ability for Trump to advertise on FB. (I don't remember the exact quote but he did refer to Trump by name.) You know, the same POTUS that has called the media the enemy of people hundreds of times.  He's concerned about FB rejecting misleading ads on the premise of free speech. :mellow:

To be fair, if ads had to be truthful, they'd have to start the entire campaign from scratch

Looks like Trump was on to something - this is his lawyer in court today:

Judge: If Trump shot someone on 5th Ave., "local authorities couldn’t investigate? They couldn’t do anything about it? ...” 

Trump lawyer: "No."

Judge: "Nothing could be done?...” 

Trump lawyer: “That is correct. That is correct.”

Wait, this really happened?

Fox News version:

- Unfair Democrat secret meeting exposed and disrupted by Patriotic Republicans

- President recognizes that Judas Republicans deserve waterfront homes

- President's lawyers educate liberal judges regarding the unfettered extent of executive privilege

- US will no longer waste time or money enforcing sanctions on Turkey

 

Better?

One of the two indicted associates of President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, on Wednesday tied the case to the president himself, saying that some of the evidence gathered in the campaign-finance investigation could be subject to executive privilege.

The unusual argument was raised by a defense lawyer in federal court in Manhattan as the two associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, pleaded not guilty to federal charges that they had made illegal campaign contributions to political candidates in the United States in exchange for potential influence.

 

So, what is the better look here - Trump disavows the indicted Ukrainians, or Trump embraces the indicted Ukrainians?

It happens a lot. I told someone recently that I was going on vacation to New Mexico, and they asked if I needed to get my son a passport.

Like, exactly what are these lawless, hooligan traitors going to do? Who/what are they going to storm? A civil war differs from looting and rioting, as it requires there to be an actual opposition engaged in the “war” 

Can we at least be allowed to call people who call for civil war and are  literally stating they will participate in the violence after a constitutionally dictated process occurs, traitors? Again, not sure how there’s any other term for someone that declares they will rise against their nation in arms if a constitutionally dictated legal proceeding doesn’t turn out as they’d like.

Law and order folks - what a joke.

:lmao: We’re building a wall in Colorado.

Preet - a little late to the game, but I love the subtlety snark:

 

Preet Bharara @PreetBharara · 6m

Just landed in Colorado for the #StayTuned live pod in Denver tomorrow night.

Will go looking for the wall tonight & report back on its beauty.

It’s sad how few Americans are left in America. So many people convinced all the pillars of our society that we were raised on are BS and the on thing that we can rely on is a shady, lying Manhattan real estate reality tv star with mob connections, a lengthy history of grifting, a slew of sexual assault accusations and the temperament of a toddler.
