:eh?: Google was planning to subvert the 2020 election? Google subverted the 2016 election? I thought he was in mourning with El Paso and Toledo? The deep staters and the "Q" folks got the message.

He mourned the whole weekend at Bedminster, but alas it was his short game he was mourning, not the tragedies in Toledo and El Pollo Loco.

One of my dad's sisters was about 4'10" in heels and just about a scratch golfer. One of her favorite things to do was snookering pompous rich guys for $100 a hole. I like to think that Donald contributed his $1,800.

As would I...the question is why the president of the US is so clueless when it comes to the law.

It's why the hate-speech advocates are arguing that Google is a utility. No word on Bing, Duck Duck Go or the dozens of other search engines.

Why don't they start their own social media platforms?
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Because then they wouldn't have anything to complain about.

:eh?: Can anybody tell me why pardoning Blagojevich would appeal to Democrats? It would sure appeal to their candidates, but Dems in general? I don't get it.

No. It wouldn't appeal to this Democrat. It would be one corrupt politician commuting the sentence of another corrupt politician.

"Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser who has internally championed pardons and commutations, had suggested Mr. Blagojevich be pardoned, *advising the president that it would appeal to Democrats."

Jared Kushner is mistaken.

Just saw Andrew McCabe is also suing the government over his firing. Good.

I think he has an even better case that Strozk. Firing him days before retirement, the ultimate in petty BS.

Kind of under the radar today, so to speak, but Donald's either talking out his ass here or he's giving away a nuclear secret. Nobody who knows about such things has ever heard of such a program. "Not good" is right.

Good writing, good points. Tom Nichols in USA Today.

Why this Never Trump ex-Republican will vote for almost any 2020 Democratic nominee

I don’t care if Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a mendacious Massachusetts liberal. She could tell me that she’s going to make me wear waffles as underpants and I’ll vote for her. I don’t care if Sen. Kamala Harris is an opportunistic California prosecutor who wants to relitigate busing. She could tell me that I have to drive to work in a go-cart covered with Barbie decals and I’ll vote for her. I don’t care if Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is a muddle-headed socialist from a rural class-warfare state (where I once lived as one of his constituents). He could tell me he’s going to tax used kitty litter and I’ll vote for him.

~snip~

As I have argued for well over two years, there is plenty of evidence that the president is compromised by our most dedicated enemy. Even before the Mueller report laid bare the degree to which the Trump campaign welcomed Russian help, it was obvious that Trump feared Russian President Vladimir Putin — not only because Putin knew how much Trump had lied to the American people during the campaign about his dealings with Russia, but also likely because Moscow holds Trump’s closest financial secrets after years of shady dealings with Russian oligarchs.

~snip~

Compulsive lying, fantastic and easily refuted claims, base insults and bizarre public meltdowns, however, are indeed signs of serious emotional problems. Trump has never been a reasonable man, but for two years, he has gotten worse. He literally cannot tell the truth from a lie, he often seems completely unable to comprehend even basic information, and he flies off the handle in ways that would make most of us take our children to a pediatrician for evaluation.

This is why policy doesn’t matter. I have only two requirements from the Democratic nominee. First, he or she must not be obviously mentally unstable. Second, the nominee must not be in any way sympathetic — or worse, potentially beholden — to a hostile foreign power.

Isn't in interesting and horrifying that these are the only two requirements to get a better president than we have now.

Oh he will have quite a legacy as is, just not the one he envisions.
