    Bill probably voted for Trump, let's not heap praise on him for being like everyone else in the country right now who doesn't want the Trump stink on them anymore.

    Well it’s suitably campy since Gavin McInnes did once sarcastically shove a dildo up his arse to own the libs by demonstrating this apparently makes him not a homophobe.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Kraft was offered a cabinet position at some point too. The New England franchise as a whole is one of the most Republican leaning teams in sports...a business owned and controlled by rich white men. Trump's connection to his friend Kraft was the only reason Belichick was being offered the medal in the first place.

    Still, in a time where politicians still refuse to seperate themselves from him despite the fact that he almost killed them, it's good to see it happen.

    What do we think the real reasons are politicians like Ted Cruz and others are still blindly supporting Trump? I mean, pre 2016 they were condemning him. I know some of them still have this false notion that being a Trump loyalist will keep the fan base and help them get elected, and they don't want to alienate that base...but aren't they now alienating an even bigger part of the Republican party? I feel like they are.

    The only other logical explanation I can think of for why someone like Pence or Cruz won't go against him at this point, is because of lobbyist kickbacks. They're getting paychecks from lobbyist groups like the NRA to vote and make decisions a certain way, and they don't want those checks to stop. It's the only rationale I can think of at this point to why they'd not do it. Because they're killing their political careers.

    So apparently Facebook purged half a million users who subscribed to a conservative campaign page called Walkaway. it was for liberals who turned conservative. the pages owner claims it was a peaceful site.

    Also, technically sports-related but also political, Bill Belichick has declined the offer for the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Now I have to respect him even more.
    Meh. Belichek is a massive Trump fan who has placated him the whole time. He's only doing this because he's smart and knows it's better for business to not accept an award that, truthfully, probably meant little to him anyways.

    The sad thing is, Robert Kraft is a lifelong democrat who in the past was heavily involved with democrat politics. But he apparently was a friend of Trumps, and due to Trump being there for him when his wife passed, had quite unwavering support for him. Which certainly pisses me off.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Mitch McConnell is reportedly for impeachment and will not impede other Republican senators in voting for the resolution.

    Mitch McConnell is the kind of guy I was always going to like even less regardless of his stance on impeaching Trump.

    Luckily that story has been corroborated, because it’s really hard to take a publication owned by a Russian oligarch seriously.

    Such distrust, Fuji. What have Russian Oligarchs ever done wrong, beyond using corruption to enrich themselves and cost the Russian state and Russian people literally hundreds of billions of dollars in money that would have been vital to rebuild the country in the immediate post-Soviet era. Good people! Totally trustworthy!

    But seriously, lots of those little things start to really make it look shady as fuck. Even just the one Rep who tweeted about Pelosi's location in the lockdown, even after they were all explicitly told not to do so.

    Imagine that he even has a chance of not being impeached by the senate, because the level of corruption and party over country is everything.
