I'd almost want them to allow him to keep his twitter account if he went to jail for entertainment purposes but I guess as a former president he still has the ability to create international incidents with his words, so best to keep his unhinged rants away from the public.

Listening to my uncle, an unabashed Trump cultist, try to twist logic to explain all of this a couple days ago, was a joy to behold.

One of the selfish reasons I want Trump in jail is because I suspect with no makeup or hairpiece he’d look like Darth Vader after Luke removes his helmet in ROTJ.

Mother of god. Not only did he say it, but he said tens of thousands of other things. I will forever be baffled as to how anyone could ever like him.

It's cool to see these fine folks continually landing on their feet. Good for them that the much exhorted "judgment of history" happens long after they've shuffled off this mortal coil.

It's physically impossible to keep up with Trump's nonsense. The media should stop trying. Now everyone is talking about the word lynching. In the meantime, Putin and Edgregon are, at this very minute, carving up Syria, republican "adoption" rings for migrant children are being exposed, and the GOP has people believing the HOR are meeting in secret to oust the President when there are republicans in the same hearings who can report out what is being said.

My head is going to explode.

Not much new here. Trump loved kissing and feeling up underaged pagent contestants. But the last part of the story was...interesting. Just a snipet:
The two threw clothes on and ran out after Trump, arriving just as his elevator was leaving. They grabbed the next elevator and rushed into the lobby. Trump was already in the middle of the crowd talking to people. “I was livid,” the man said. “She’s hysterical, crying....And I went at him, and just as I was about to grab him, his bodyguard jumped between us and pushed me back. I was screaming at him, ‘What the horsefeathers are you doing, coming into my room?’ It was a scene.”

While the bodyguard was trying to push the man away, Trump approached. “I hate sloppy seconds,” Trump said.

Yeah, namely Sondland forgot all of the times he doled out Trump's orders that explicitly stated that Biden investigations were a part of a quid pro quo for both a WH meeting AND the security assistance funds.

I have no reason to doubt any of that, but that book is full of unprovable nonsense and the kind of stuff we'd all be angry about if it were written about a Democrat.

Well, this is certainly a take.

You mean like with Warren's cougar escapades? Why would I hate that?! That stuff was fantastic! What I do hate is your false equivalence.

Well, this is certainly a take.

are you contractually obligated by NSB(B) to make comments about every post?

The fact of the matter is that every story in that book was tracked down by reporters years ago. Everything that is provable has already been reported and the rest is unsubstantiated titillation for the knuckledraggers on the left (yes, we have them too.).

We aren't in court. It doesn't have to be provable. It's believable. There's no reason for you to "if it was a democrat" this. It's a report of a proven racist, sexist, and bigot doing things that we all understand he's 100% capable of, and is likely to be true.
