just like hollywood not wanting to see the hypocrisy of their own giving Harvey weinstein protective cover for years.

:D

 

In case you haven't noticed it wasn't just Hollywood.  It was rampant in every form of business everywhere.  It has been part of the culture around the world for donkey's years.  You are just searching for an anti liberal angle.  This problem has existed everywhere.  Hey, it's sitting in the Oval Office as we speak.  The bigger disgrace is the fact that half of America voted for a serial sexual molester without thinking twice about it.  What a load you spew.

And instead of addressing what I wrote you change the topic by mentioning something unfathomably stupid.  Par for the course.

There was a good article in last week's Washington Post on the Evangelical's embrace of Donald Tump.  It was likened to idolatry. In other words, Trump is the Golden Calf.   The Evangelicals are content with perverting their own religion where it becomes intolerant of others less fortunate as opposed to assisting them.  This fits like a glove with Trump scapegoating anyone who isn't a white American.  Somehow they don't manage to see the hypocrisy of being mean spirited and Christian.  Or they don't choose to see it.

I won't get into most of your specious argument here. Just one point: Well you are very mistaken if you think Trump is the person to restore decency and Christian values to the country. So you voted for the lying jerk for reasons he is temperamentally unsuited to fulfill.

Like a real fair or carnival, trump has the side shows of

harassing the NFL players,

harassing the Puerto Rican hurricane victims,

keeping the DACA young people in limbo,

upsetting the transgender people in the military,

insulting various journalists,

and --what must be the personal favorite of the Republican Party--
publicly humiliating, insulting and harassing top Republicans in the administration and in Congress--

Senator John McCain
Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson--

more than he criticizes the top Democratic Leadership.


But all of this is just to camouflage or cover up what's going on in the big tent or what's going to be the main attraction--

Mueller's pending indictments concerning Russian Collusion of the trump Campaign in the 2016 Presidential Election-- and the Joker Is Wild as to whatever else he's going to come up with.

such unbridled optimism. :P  :D

When you make silly and inaccurate statements like 'rolling back ALL social gains,' you lose ALL creditability.
 
PS:   my fear is that Dem politicians will make similar comments and therefore the Dems will NOT be able to take back the House in 2018.      Being over-the-top isn't the way to win elections in most states.


Well they are not silly or inaccurate. This administration is Hell-Bent on rolling back protections for minority rights, women's rights, reproductive rights, LGBT rights, workers' rights, voting rights, immigrants' rights, environmental rights, etc. etc. etc. Deadly serious, not silly.

I have a golden rule regarding funerals, memorial services is not to say anything (speaking for myself).  Less likely to say something wrong.

 

Regarding other people, do you all hate when a person says... I know exactly what you're going through to those grieving but never went though the experience.

I get the constant dissing of donny but the problem is that the other side doan wanna get it. so donny's a liar, a serial groper, this that, that this...pleez. we get it but it is all quite irrelevant and here's why. because of bill clinton and barack obama. so here's bill clinton who not only disgraces the office he held but the actual office where monica held it. prevails upon a 21 year old woman to perform oral sex on him beneath that hallowed desk. the only reaction from the democrats was it was not impeachable behavior. then divine obama who professes numerous times having a christian faith but then celebrates a scotus ruling that makes a mockery of traditional monogamous male-female matrimony. abhorent to even non-religious people because such an edict turns over hundreds of years of western civilization on it's head. 50 years ago such a ruling woulda called into question the very legitimacy of the scotus but quite franbkly the dred scott decision shoulda done that.
so we're all supposed to be shocked and aghast at trump's antics...why? could tradition-respecting deplorable americans have expected any different from hillary clinton? no, of course not. she woulda doubled down even harder maybe on obama's godless secularism. no, it's our turn and we quite get it that liberalism woulda gone to town on conservative americans so for the other side to somehow expect different from us doan make sense. so now were all supposed to be terrified for the women because of weinstein and trump? what about bill clinton who appointed jocelyn elders as surgeon general who then thought it was a good idea for kindergarten kids to play with themselves. shouldn't a rational people fear that kinda sick HS? we have. we did. we do. a vanishing decent america determined that we needed the political equivalent of a moab bunker buster...
