Not sure if it is a great strategy to pardon Manafort. So any minute now.

No. If the Dems win the House, that will be the turning point I hope. Have to watch the voting systems for shenanigans though. Russians were already stopped by Facebook and Microsoft recently.

I've been flipping back and forth just to see how they're handling this. Now they're talking about the Confederate statue.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Were other unusually corrupt presidencies supported as strongly by their parties? Did Harding and Grant receive never-ending support from senators and Republican newspapers?

Just sayin'

There is a flood of R incumbents voluntarily declining to run again, and the first two (of many to come) have been indicted.

Shit is finally in play.

For one thing, we're living in a mass media world where we're inundated with news and propaganda 24/7. That dodn't exist in Grant or Harding's times, or even Nixon's to the extent that it is today.

Harding had the good sense to keel over dead before the Teapot Dome Scandal took him down, though I think it did erode his support quite a bit. Though it didn't prevent his VP from being elected president two years later unlike how Nixon's scandals tainted Ford.

Tibbetts isn't going to be the "martyr" that trump, Fox and their minions were hoping for...


Prepare for a lot of gross things to be said about this poor woman.
In the meantime...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Wow, Cohen is ready to spill everything about trump...


Though pretty sure that the special counsel already knows all this and then some from when they raided Cohen's shit, and so much more that we have no idea about.

Do you think the shitfucks care about the truth? They'll drag her corpse through the streets if they think her death has some political capital they can exploit. They have no shame.

I'd imagine his head is preoccupied with Machiavellian Gymnastics, trying to reconcile what's happening. And downplaying his VP position, hoping to not be embarrassed for the rest of his life. Don't forget - there was a point late in the election when he was going to drop out.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Assuming hey may have kept a secret or two, good idea attacking the guy now? Probably not; but it's not like Trump does anything that's a good idea.
