Good point. I was just going with the most offensive person I could think of.

The man running toward the camera man is, in fact, running....from fucking tear gas, and al the people “standing around” are doing no such thing. They all, or at least the majority appear to be trying to flee from the gas. And all that’s in addition to the mother pulling her children away from the gas in the forefront of the picture.

Well, what ur missing is that, clearly that women with the children is not he mother (or other family membe). She is a “grabber”. So that totally justifies the use of tear gas on them.

"In some cases, you know, they're not the parents," the President said. "These are people, they call 'em grabbers. They grab a child because they think they'll have a certain status by having a child. You know, you have certain advantages in terms of our crazy laws that, frankly, Congress should be changing."
When asked for evidence of his claim by reporters, Trump demurred.
"It's a term that's used because, as you know, many people, it's a very violent, horrible thing, that they feel they have an advantage when they're with a young child, and they call them grabbers," he said.
The term "grabber" has not been widely used.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Jesus christ. Even if you dumb yourself down enough to accept his statements as truth, the president just seemed to openly state that it’s crazy that our laws try to be gentler when a child is involved. What pieces of shit his enablers and supporters are.

I can kind of see how he got there with his thinking, though....

*President Trump is a "grabber" because he openly admits he grabs women by the pussy whether they want it or not. He says because he's a celebrity it's ok. The women didn't ask him to but he did it for a status thing.

Once again, a mis-quote of what he said. He said they let him do it because of his celeb status.

He also said he doesn’t even wait. #MAGA

Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Bush: Whatever you want.

Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.
Such inspiring words I could cry.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Yea, he's obviously stating that he doesn't wait for their permission to start kissing them and grabbing them by the pussy - and that he gets away with it because he's a celebrity.

He did NOT state that after getting their permission they let him do it because he's a celebrity.

Very big difference.

Remember, this is the guy who also bragged that without permission he goes backstage at his pageants while women are naked.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

^ Let’s be doubly-clear - also women under the age of 18. But I’m sure they are all lying.

On an appearance on The Howard Stern Show in 2005, published on Sunday by CNN, Trump described going backstage at the beauty pageants while the contestants were undressed. “Before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” he said. “You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good.”

“You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?’” he continued. “And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.”

According to interviews BuzzFeed News conducted with former Miss Teen USA contestants, Trump did just that in 1997. Four women who were competing in the pageant that year — including one who was 15 at the time — recalled that Trump walked into the dressing area while they were changing.

Holy shit!


Probably leaked by Mueller's team after Manafort lied to them.

So the potential shared lie that Manafort and trump could be caught out on could be that Manafort hand delivered letters between Trump and Assange.
Seriously, holy shit!

*edit - looks like there's reason to be skeptical about this...

Yeah it's becoming pretty obvious why Trump hired the guy. Manafort used the promise of dirt on Hillary from Assange to get the Campaign Manager spot.

Goodlatte: ‘It’s awfully tough’ for Ivanka Trump to comply with email standards

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), said on Monday that it was “awfully tough” for government officials such as Ivanka Trump to comply with agency standards for secure communications when sending emails.

“When things like this come up, it’s important people understand, they need to make sure they’re doing what they can,” Goodlatte said during an interview on CNN.

“And it’s awfully tough, as everyone knows, when you’re sending emails about a lot of different things to make sure that you’re doing it according to the rules in the White House or wherever you’re doing it,” he added.

on a different note, Chris Hayes needs to let the adults do their job.

I wonder how trump apologists imagine this consent goes down?

"Excuse me madam, would you be so kind as to let me cup your genitals with my hand?"
"Oh dear me, normally I would never, but seeing as you are such a celebrity, have at it!"

It's even far more than that. Government contractors have to comply with the same or very similar processes for communication of sensitive information. And for that matter, it's the same kind of processes that companies who have nothing to do with the government put in place to protect company proprietary information. But uh, yeah, it's awfully tough Mr. Goodlatte.
