Just get it through your head that he is a troll, foe him, and move on to a better life not reading his drivel.

What surprises me is that no one but Omarosa has gone public with how unhinged he is. I would have thought Tillerson would have. He has plenty of money and could enjoy the blowback from a beach somewhere. Maybe people are keeping their powder dry until before 2020 in case Trump decides to actually make a run for the second term.

most people who would on that side, really have no reason to. they are fine selling a small part of their soul, for the windfall of pro regulations they have.

It's like the chick-fil-a cows. They're are cool as long as you're eating chicken and not them.

It's kinda like threatening an agoraphobe with Dominoes for a while.

The Woodward stuff is wild, but I'm just tired of this nonsense. Two supreme court appointments so far.

That garbage was staged and had no place at that hearing IMO. It was intended to be a gotcha moment.

I mean, all Kavanaugh had to do was shake the man's hand and show some basic humanity. Seriously, there would have been no downside for him. So he's a gun-nut? A handshake would have shown that he can still show compassion to the other side. It's like they're trained to not give us an inch.

And so what if it was staged? Guttenberg has shown some political savvy in fighting for what he believes in and I respect that. It's not like supreme court hearings are sacred, especially after what the GOP has done over the past couple of years.
