I had a mailman tell me once that they are prohibited by law to hand mail to a person. They have to put it in the mailbox. I was standing on the porch and he wouldn't hand it to me. He put it in the box which I was standing right next to.

I have a mailbox attached to my front porch, so my mailman always hands me the mail when he pulls up and I am working on the yard or something. Your mailman is probably technically right in that they can't just hand the mail to some random person, but I guess since he knows me he hands it to me so he doesn't have to get out of his truck.

Your use of the term "some" is being generous.

Any guesses on who will be named?

Obviously Andrew McCabe and James Comey, do you think there will be any others?

Almost every kid in school that gets in trouble will have something to say about the teacher that "got them in trouble." Sometimes they are right. Most of the time they are simply trying to divert attention away from what they did.

But haven't we talked about James Comey's book enough already?

I have never discussed Comey's book. Don't really care about it. I call a spade a spade and Trump is just that.

The Russia investigation is also taking longer because of the obstruction, stonewalling, and dishonesty. For example, if Trump wants to do an interview, then why does it take a year to arrange it? Because he doesn't want to do an interview. Trump and most of the other subjects and targets of the investigation are just trying to buy more time. They are hoping for a good excuse to end the investigation.

I know, the DOJ was threatened that they could be held in contempt of Congress for the failure to comply with their requests.

If you haven't already you will have a pretty hard time visiting any U.S. federal office

No need for me to visit a U.S. Federal office anytime soon. You seem to have the kind of attitude that likes to poke the bear with your Trump stick. The kind that seems to enjoy the perceived anguish from those that do not like Trump or feel he is deserving of the office.

Are you referring to the anguish in Cellar Door's post with the "" in it?

Please give me an example of terms that are as bad or worse than animals that the groups you mentioned all routinely use.

Do you believe that what the president says has more, less, or the same amount of impact on society than the above groups say?

re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

So answer neither question and pull a quote from two years ago to show a single person from one of the groups using the term? Gotcha

Done discussing it I guess as you never really began.

Thank you. This is an excellent example of how Trump has lowered the level of political discourse in our country.


(See? I can do it, too.)

Again - the tears over “animal” are crocodile ones.

You asked for an example - I gave you one, this is someone in the media who can and does have a impact routinely in many ways in print, digital and video. She is routinely on both ABC and CNN as Political commentator, cable news programs, daytime TV shows like the View and she is also well known on the Telemundo network with programming syndicated worldwide to more than 100 countries in over 35 languages.

She called Donald Trump an animal.

Said he should drop out of the human race.

and ended with an apologies to animals.

I did all this with a single tweet I think I for the most part covered what you asked.

re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

rou·tine·ly
ro͞oˈtēnlē/Submit
adverb
as part of a regular procedure rather than for a special reason.
"large-scale producers routinely vaccinate their birds against the disease"
frequently and without proper consideration of the consequences.
"owners routinely flout local laws about restraining and picking up after their pets"

So you say all of these groups routinely use terms just as bad if not worse than animals. Asked for examples you provide one from one person from 2 years ago.

Then ignore the second question (like you did every question I sincerly asked in the other thread).

Then act like you're the cock of the walk with the evidence you provided.

You're a frustrating person and I feel sorry for anyone forced to deal with you.

If this keeps up someone might call another group "Deplorables".

Ana Navarro doesn’t speak for the whole country to the world. Trump does. What he says matters more than anyone else in the United States.

Hold him accountable. Stop comparing him to people who are no comparison.
