Hmmm. Sounds like a reason to declare a police action on Australia.


That wouldn't stop Rupert. His tentacles are already deep in your system.

Donnie is pissing in his pants desperate. Nothing new, he's rehashing an old dried out bullshit talking point of his.

AP FACT CHECK: Scarborough staffer death not a “mystery”

An autopsy revealed that Klausutis had an undiagnosed heart condition and a coroner concluded she passed out and hit her head as she fell. The coroner said the head injury caused the death, but she wasn’t struck by another person.

The death occurred a month after Scarborough announced he was leaving office. Scarborough was in Washington when Klausutis died.

Trump repeating debunked conspiracy theory to distract from his own catastrophic incompetence and hope a really fucked up member of his MAGA cult takes it as a commandment to try and kill Joe Scarborough. Stochastic terrorism.

Slandering people isnt okay. Joe Scarborough didn't kill nobody and Trump is a bastard for dragging around the name of a dead woman just to try and talk shit about a guy.

TEM enjoying the thought of a Trump cultist getting the idea that Scarborough is a murderer and trying to exact vigilante justice. Shocker.

How did you get me enjoying a murder out of what either he or I said? I'm honestly impressed at that level of failure. You really out do yourself. Death anyway would be too easy. I'd prefer if he had to deal with his career prestige being reduced to the same level as a common whore or tobacco executive. Much like your impotent posts here, his ineffectual opinion on TV after having mattered would be so much the better. Living with that would be far worse than death for a media type like him.

Keep in mind the Cons were suddenly fine with Sanctuary Cities when they became ways to dodge common sense gun regulation.

They’re taxed like other businesses in the 501(c)3 classification.

North Korea looked at Libya, Ukraine and Iran and then looked at John Bolton saying "We're gonna do a Libya on DPRK" and drew the logical conclusions: If you give up your bombs to America you are an idiot who deserves to be colonised. <.>

No, no, he just wants this woman’s family to relive the pain and suffering of losing her all over again. He loves the anguish they will feel when a bunch of twitter-detectives dig into her life after so many years, trying desperately to uncover what isn't there. He'll cheer on another PizzaGate-event (but will surely tut if shots are fired), you know, in order to make a random TV-dude's day slightly worse.

This is what our conservative values are now. :)

Trump might be a good businessman, I don't know, but he doesn't seem to know how diplomacy works. Seeing as how most of his enemies take advantage of his incompetence and most of his allies think he's a dunce. Trump gave the Kims the legitimacy of a Presidential visit and a seat at the big table, and got literally nothing in return.

The primary attribute that makes someone a good businessman is being rich. It allows you to invest, and hire people to do all the difficult stuff for you. Trump inherited enough wealth to make himself a succesful businessman.

Now, if you don’t have wealth already, the second-best attribute is charisma, and being a good salesman. The third-best attribute is intelligence.

Trump was lucky to be born wealthy, is what I am trying to say.

Everytime I think I have been desensitized to Trumps idiocy, he goes and proves me wrong. It's like he knows I have gotten comfortable and smug, so he decides to pull the pin on a twitter grenade.

Though, the fact that he is borderline accusing someone of murder, and feels like the man's ratings are pertinent to the crime, is hilarious to me. That, and the concept of "forensic geniuses." I'm surprised he didnt claim he was a forensic genius.

Don't pretend Trump isn't charismatic. Trump is very charismatic. You can't continously lie without repercussions or say you're willing to kill your followers by the thousands on fifth avenue and not lose support without having some natural charisma.

That's not charisma. That's people hanging on for dear life to his dogshit ideology because it is the last vestige of their power. Certainly the Senate Republicans are not convinced by him personally. He is just everything they have left.

If Trump had charisma, he would be convincing people from time to time, outside of his cult following.

As much as I cannot imagine anyone looking at Trump and feeling inspired to do anything but puke, I can't deny he seems to have charisma to some people.
