Did you forget it's already happened? We had all those the packages delivered to CNN and other media and politicians who the so-called president of the United States has called the enemy of the people. He's a pig and his supporters are pigs.

Can't say it couldn't happen, look what happened at the Republican baseball practice when Steve Scalise was shot.

b-man beat me to the general thought, since I'm deep into the Nats' game at the moment.  You probably don't want to get into a tit-for-tat comparison on mass gun violence and political orientation.  Trust me.  Numbers don't lie.

As others have pointed out, false equivalence. No one of any import has called for the death of any Republican congressman. The POS POTUS has the most powerful megaphone in the world. He has directly called reporters and Democrats the enemy of the people and he certainly has encouraged violence in speeches to mesmerized audiences at his spittle-fests.

You mean a shuffleboard court in Florida, or the salad, ribeye and red to be determined cafe.

I'm surprised he could take a break from watching the disgusting video shown to 45's supporters at 45's Resort in Florida.  I won't post a link, easy enough to google.  One of these deranged supporters is going to take this as a call to do harm to a media member, and Trump has (as of now) yet to denounce the video.  

Video not on FOX, so he did not see it

"Does the treatment by China to its citizens and to HK citizens affect the way you make your purchasing decisions?" -- Maybe it should.  Interestingly, there are folks who feel it is appropriate to boycott Israel, because of alleged maltreatment of Palestinians. (This, despite the fact that some Palestinians shoot off missiles or engage in other terrorist activity).  Yet, I am unaware of any organization seeking to boycott Chinese imported goods, just because they harvest organs from living unwilling donors, keep political prisoners in horrible conditions, and thwart attempts to democratize--and so forth.   Maybe there should be a boycott China movement.

"Alleged maltreatment of Palestinians"? Realizing this topic has more layers than an onion, but I think "alleged" is an inaccurate adjective. Not to every Palestinian, but it's happening.  However,  I wouldn't paint a broad brush on the entire country and people of Israel and boycott it, any more than 'some Palestinians engage in terrorist activities' means all Palestinians deserved to be maltreated.

Erdogan said he threw the orange dumpster childish letter in the trash. I hope he at least wiped his ass with it first. I just don’t believe we should be wasteful. 

 

The letter was a direct insult.  No diplomacy at all,  I think the letter was back dated to make orange man look good

This "The Apprentice" playing president.

Nobel for 45 after brokering that great peace agreement?

Can you imagine what we gave up for this not to last BS. 

The Dump was desperate as his own party was up in arms. Turkey wins and the American public pays for the Dumps stupidity and worse, abandonment of an ally. 

Or, worse than that, some of those escaped ISIS fighters getting to the US committing terrorists acts there.  Or against US interests in Europe or elsewhere.  Or against anyone else.  Perhaps the stupidest thing Trump said (aside from the WWII reference!) throughout this whole affair was that the escaped ISIS terrorists would not be America's problem.  

On the bright side though, a majority of Republicans in the House voted against him.

The Dump has one policy. Himself first and he doesn’t even care other than that, but spews America second.  He sure in the hell doesn’t care about Europe. 

Plus, B, as he said, ISIS is 7000 miles from America, so fret not.  I guess the 911 terrorist were from Queens.

Touché... see my first sentence... he cares only about himself and yes, your two indeed benefit the orange pile on dung.

It will come down to the red states and their Senators if you all want the impeachment to work.  

Impeachment does not have "to work." It is necessary even if it fails in the Senate. The house is simply doing its duty to call out obvious criminal and unconstitutional acts.

Here's a prediction:  By the time the investigations are done, not only will the House impeach, but the Senate will have no choice but to convict.  There is much more out there on these guys.  The career civil servants are starting to get their mojo working.  The dam is leaking. Whistles are being blown.  You read it here first.

And I have said for almost three horrible years that the craven Republicans will continue to put party before country and do whatever it takes to protect their bill-signer-in-chief.

You read it here second. 

I’m still shaking my head at how the worst President in history can choose the worst Chief of Staff in history.  Key takeaways from the Mulvaney press conference yesterday, per Quora poster Mike Jones:

“Theres really one key one: Mulvaney thinks he can say anything he wants, then directly contradict it in a written statement an hour or two later, and get away with it.

Beyond that, he called the legitimacy of the Barr/Dunham investigation into the genesis of the Mueller investigation into question by saying that Trump asked Ukraine for help with it (a claim that has been denied by the DOJ).

He admitted that the President used taxpayer funds to attempt to influence the behavior of a foreign country for political advantage.

Oh, and he thinks we’re all complete idiots because no one else would believe his transparent lie about how the Trump Doral resort was chosen for next year’s G-7 meeting.

I will not be surprised in the least if the transcript of this press conference is entered as evidence in the Senate impeachment trial of Trump.”

How many days does Mulvaney have left in the WH?   Maybe he can caddy at Doral

He made it clear, you need to get over the most corrupt undemocratic presidency in US history. OK?
