Anyone watch Eric Trump on the Sunday ABC This Week with George Stephanopoulos? We pretty much know the medications that Donald Trump is getting, having covid and all, but WHAT THE HELL is Eric Trump injecting? And... WTF was going on with his face? Was I watching This Week with George Stephanopoulos, or some South Park episode? F-ing mind blowing. Those damn Trump's... you got to admit that they have access to some heavy duty drugs.

Presidents have secret service protection for the rest of their lives (smart move by Obama), what happens when the ex-president goes to jail?
It's pretty straight forward. Once he's convicted in NYS court awaiting sentencing, (self pardon impossible) give him the opportunity to flee the Country. Maybe the Saudis will take him in, or Erdogan, or he can spend his time playing golf with Yanukovich in Crimea. His creditors can take his assets. Whatevs, you know? Bye, Donnie.

Once the idiot isn't useful, think they will want him?

The other part of Harry and Meghan's statement. The bit where they ask people to reject misinformation. They didn't just say to reject hate speech, they also said to reject misinformation. Given that the entire Trump election campaign depends on misinformation, the chap is deducing that if they tell people to reject that they are telling them to reject Trump's campaign.
:rolleyes: With all due respect: nonsense They can say whatever they like. There was nothing "partisan" about what they said about misinformation. I'm going to assume your a brit and don't like what Harry did with regards to his marriage and his decision to lead his life the way he wants.

AGAIN! - This is a butthurt GOP congressman admitting that encouraging people to vote and to reject misinformation is bad for Trump. Nothing more to it than that.

I should have used sarcasm tags, I guess. I did try to make it obvious.

Well Trump is rich(ish) and famous, as well as powerful, that means he gets to use the extra special court system reserved for the elite. So, no matter how bad the case goes for him the worst case scenario will be house arrest at Mar-de-Lago with weekends and holidays free. He will be allowed to occasionally be given a special pass to attend the Masters or once a month or so spend a week golfing at one of his other resorts, because the court will rule that it would be cruel and unusual punishment's to force him to play the same golf course every day for the rest of his life.

with special guest writer, stephen miller:

More than 500 years ago, Christopher Columbus’s intrepid voyage to the New World ushered in a new era of exploration and discovery. His travels led to European contact with the Americas and, a century later, the first settlements on the shores of the modern day United States. Today, we celebrate Columbus Day to commemorate the great Italian who opened a new chapter in world history and to appreciate his enduring significance to the Western Hemisphere.

When Christopher Columbus and his crew sailed across the Atlantic Ocean on the Niña, Pinta, and Santa María it marked the beginning of a new era in human history. For Italian Americans, Christopher Columbus represents one of the first of many immeasurable contributions of Italy to American history. As a native of Genoa, Columbus inspired early immigrants to carry forth their rich Italian heritage to the New World. Today, the United States benefits from the warmth and generosity of nearly 17 million Italian Americans, whose love of family and country strengthen the fabric of our Nation. For our beautiful Italian American communities — and Americans of every background –Columbus remains a legendary figure.

Sadly, in recent years, radical activists have sought to undermine Christopher Columbus’s legacy. These extremists seek to replace discussion of his vast contributions with talk of failings, his discoveries with atrocities, and his achievements with transgressions. Rather than learn from our history, this radical ideology and its adherents seek to revise it, deprive it of any splendor, and mark it as inherently sinister. They seek to squash any dissent from their orthodoxy. We must not give in to these tactics or consent to such a bleak view of our history. We must teach future generations about our storied heritage, starting with the protection of monuments to our intrepid heroes like Columbus. This June, I signed an Executive Order to ensure that any person or group destroying or vandalizing a Federal monument, memorial, or statue is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I have also taken steps to ensure that we preserve our Nation’s history and promote patriotic education. In July, I signed another Executive Order to build and rebuild monuments to iconic American figures in a National Garden of American Heroes. In September, I announced the creation of the 1776 Commission, which will encourage our educators to teach our children about the miracle of American history and honor our founding. In addition, last month I signed an Executive Order to root out the teaching of racially divisive concepts from the Federal workplace, many of which are grounded in the same type of revisionist history that is trying to erase Christopher Columbus from our national heritage. Together, we must safeguard our history and stop this new wave of iconoclasm by standing against those who spread hate and division.

On this Columbus Day, we embrace the same optimism that led Christopher Columbus to discover the New World. We inherit that optimism, along with the legacy of American heroes who blazed the trails, settled a continent, tamed the wilderness, and built the single-greatest nation the world has ever seen.

In commemoration of Christopher Columbus’s historic voyage, the Congress, by joint resolution of April 30, 1934, modified in 1968 (36 U.S.C. 107), has requested the President proclaim the second Monday of October of each year as “Columbus Day.”

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 12, 2020, as Columbus Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also direct that the flag of the United States be displayed on all public buildings on the appointed day in honor of our diverse history and all who have contributed to shaping this Nation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this ninth day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth.

DONALD J. TRUMP

anyone want to tell him that those ships were arriving on foreign soil filled with spanish speaking immigrant labor arriving on american shores with neither invitation nor documentation?

I'm not sure where to post this, so I will leave it here.

We all know Trump recently had his clearly illegal rally from the WH lawn where he stood on the balcony and orated down to 2,000 500 loyal subjugates.
But did you know that the Marine band played there (also illegal and on the tax payers dime).
But did you also know that the band played "America" from West Side story?
It's not clear who picked the song to play, but if you're familiar with the lyrics (and part it plays in the musical), it's just another thing you couldn't write yourself...

Look up the lyrics and the meanings etc. They are not "flattering" to say the least.


Here's the lyrics from the two versions of the song. This is like wanting "Pink Houses" by Mellancamp but 100xs worse.

And a pony! Everybody gets a pony! We've heard the same vacuous bullshit for 4 years with no concrete proposals whatsoever.
I really don't get people supporting this guy and they are not all idiots. I have friends and family who support him and are sane smart people. Most are morons but not all and for me that is mind blowing. On this topic alone how can anyone support him? He clearly has no plan other than unraveling the ACA. :confused2:

It’s a cult of personality. I suspect trump is how they see themselves, the victims, always the victim. Trump is the guy that is always fighting the people they hate or feel is the cause for their problems. I don’t know what came first, the victim mentality or the Fox brain rot but either way they feed off of each other (feel free to substitute Fox for any right wing media entity, they all peddle the same crap).
