If you can't grasp why the constant attack on journalism, which has already led to attacks, bomb packages and threats, spurred on by the president of the united states is a dangerous thing, I don't know what to tell you, man.

Just pretend it was Obama doing it instead of Trump, or something.

Ah, Trump is attacking Paul Ryan now, again...

This is due to Ryan criticizing Trump after giving his account in a new book from a Politico Writer, which is coming out called American Carnage.

Hillary Clinton underestimated how easy it is to bait Donnie. I can't help but wonder if the Iranians realized this as well.

True. You have to balance risk and gains.

What are the gains?

The last link is from February of last year, that's old news. Hmm, regardless, he does not hire the best people in terms of integrity at least. They may do their actual jobs well but he picks rather cringey people.

Yes, that's fucking shit as well.

And if you care to do the digging, you'll find plenty of my posts from well before 2016 condeming the Electoral College. Don't project your own mercenary attitude onto others.


And if you’ll take a reading comprehension course and come back to this post, you’ll see I said vast majority, not everyone. If the shoe fits, wear it. Other wise, me thinks thou doth protest too much.
