Keep giving us good reason to be contemptuous and you'll get the contempt every time.

And stop pretending half of America thinks like you do...why do you think Republicans got blown out in November?

How can some people not look down on people who think they actually represent "half of America." Both Trump and Clinton received the support of roughly 1 out of 5 Americans. Do the math.

Probably for the same reasons the Democrats got blown out in 1994 (lost 54 House seats) and 2010 (lost 63 House seats). It's what often happens in mid-term elections.

And after that, did you hear Democrats whining about Republican's "self-righteous contempt for the other half of America?" How often does that happen?

No. Perhaps because the Republicans didn't display any such contempt. Thanks for helping to show the difference between Democrats and Republicans.

So only those who actually voted in the 2016 election have an opinion? You just declared the entire polling industry to be obsolete. Not a smart take.

How did they do with the poorer areas?

This tweet cherry picks.

We also know the Dems got more aggregate votes than the GOP candidates.

You certainly posted that conclusion the right thread :roll: Think anyone outside the FoxNews bubble actually believes that?

According to actual statistics, donations of over $100,000 in the last cycle were split right down the middle between candidates of both parties...stop the presses, they both like money.

Sure you're not just worried about getting your "share"of the dough?

Hey! We got a fresh WTF! Or is it a Stupid Criminal Trick?

Paul Manafort's lawyers filed a pleading, saying that he was cooperating with the Mueller investigation and he shouldn't be sent to jail. And so they redacted parts of it. Except they didn't. They merely put the text against a black background so you couldn't read it. But you can highlight and copy it. Like this ==> TOP SECRET STUFF HERE.

Four "redactions," total; here's the first one.

"(See, e.g., Doc. 460 at 5 (After being shown documents, Mr. Manafort “conceded” that he discussed or may have discussed a Ukraine peace plan with Mr. Kilimnik on more than one occasion); id. at 6 (After being told that Mr. Kilimnik had traveled to Madrid on the same day that Mr. Manafort was in Madrid, Mr. Manafort “acknowledged” that he and Mr. Kilimnik met while they were both in Madrid))."

Copy and paste them for yourself here: https://assets.documentcloud.org/docume ... 108-Dc.pdf

Too funny. Maybe Manafort's plan is to appeal based on incompetent counsel.

That would follow, based on their current strategy of rolling him into court in a wheelchair and wailing about his "severe gout"

I'm pretty sure those are both more than half, but I'll split the difference.

About 1 out of 5 Americans voted for Trump. Similar to Clinton, but Clinton got a two or three million more.

Did I confuse you with the word represent?

In the meantime, you have to dig up a pretty biased poll to find that more than half of Americans approve of Trump. Even Rasmussen has his approval rating under 50%.

What you're missing here is the original tweet in which he twice spelled forest as Forrest.
