Its basically a distraction noodle and the media keeps falling for it over and over and over and over and over.... Because they can't pass up a chance to criticize Trump. But yet they are also complicit because of how they choose to cover things.
    I didnt say it mattered but regardless, he still went back on his word.

    Yeah at this point, pointing out Trump's lies about inconsequential shit is almost entirely meaningless. Repubs and Trumpers don't care that he's a liar, they don't care that it flies in the face of the OG Trump voting excuse. "He says it like it is! He's not like other politicians!" You're right, he's not, he's worse. At least other politicians only lie about shit for political gain or just fail to fulfill campaign promises. Trump doesn't just do that but he lies about petty, ridiculous stuff that simply doesn't matter, for no reason other than he's pathological. And do they care that there's a pathological liar in the White House? Nah, gotta stick it to the libs.

    Pretty much nailed it, Silk.

    It's revenge for Obama, and they love it. They love that he's a total classless asshole, and even the ones who hide under the guise of religion value greed and bigotry over it.

    It's "offending the snowflakes" and "MAGA". They think it's great.

    tbh the big takeaway from this Warren thing is that it pretty much confirms she'll be running in 2020. Would she go through all that trouble just to prove Trump wrong for a silly bet? Nah, she's getting ahead of the attacks he's gonna throw at her in a year and a half.

    Oh, joy. Who isn't excited for that? The insult fest, that is.

    In the 2016 election, we had republicans running for office talking about penis size and calling eachother names like it was middle school.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    I was so optimistic and excited to have a strong woman in the white house, but the 2016 election proved that this disgustingly racist and sexist country led by rich white men is just not going to allow a woman to get in office.

    Not yet, not right after Hillary lost. Winning this election is more important than any other election we've had in a long time.

    Whoever has the best chance of beating Trump is who we need. Whether that's Biden, Bernie Sanders, or Dwayne Johnson...

    I'd love Warren as president, but I think it's too risky.

    I think this last election really did nothing but embolden and unite the right under their ideals of bigotry and xenophobia, and put it all out there that they are okay with it and that they are just going to try and bully and insult their way around.

    And their fanbase loves it.

    It's pathetic, and sad. It's upsetting to see just how bottom dwelling things are right now in this country, but I don't see things getting better in the near future. Not without radical change.

    Historic day in Canada. Recreational Marijuana is legal. In Montreal it has the same laws as Tobacco. So you can smoke it on sidewalks or in the street.

    We are the second country in the world and now the biggest martketplace for it. Tourism is going to sky rocket!!!

    I think the right was always united under those terms, it was just politically correct for them to mask it. They started to unmask during President Obama's 8 years in office, then the very best brain decided it was a good idea to call all Mexicans rapists and murderers (slight possibility that some are OK) while announcing he was running for President. Whatever last vestige of PC culture was holding that mask up was tossed out the window and the real face of the vocal right was front and center "telling it like it is."

    Very true.

    Also, here's a quick recap of this week in politics in the USA.

    Cut taxes to the wealthiest elite.
    Double up on military spending at all time highs.


    Rack up the deficits back to Bush levels, and cause an increase similar to that of Reagans.


    Then blame medicare and SSN, and use it as an excuse to gut them after creating the issue to begin with, all while lining the wallets of the 2% more.


    Meanwhile, "The president with BALLS!" who's "Getting tough" is being entirely passive with Saudi Arabia in light of brutal torture, and continues to buddy up with them and Russia.

    There was quite a bit of chatter about it yesterday at my workplace, but not a single person seem actually enthused and/or likely to partake in it.

    Its too bad Papa Papa had to head home on Tuesday. I got him to agree to legally partake with me on Wednesday, for the first time in his life. He's 70 lol

    Also, much less fun... the latest on the "disappearance" of Jamal Khashoggi is that he was dismembered alive during the "interrogation" in about 7 minutes. Not substantiated. But Saudi Arabia did transfer 100m to the US and one of the Saudi's who went to Turkey to likely participate in the "interrogation" has been killed in a "car accident". Expect no actual consequences for Saudi Arabia, at least from America.

    Name looks familiar, but I don't recall talking much. Though you certainly seem right up my alley in terms of wrestlers you like and political ideology.

    Stick around.
