How does remarking on Trump's tactical response to the pussy tape equal thinking it is fair to do so?

Well the MVP award is for the current year, so that bodes well for Westbrook. If it were for multiple years, you would have a point. Lebron's impact on the league is irrelevant to the award by definition and he plays on the team with the highest payroll in history, so let's not pretend we are talking about Cavaliers circa 2007, James Harden did as much to get his team where they are. Lebron also had quite a few "DNP - rest" games. Hard to give the regular season MVP to a guy who basically acted like the regular season was irrelevant; a foregone conclusion.

Also, they lost tonight. SAD!

for sure I out Westbrook and Harden above him.  Kawhi and Lebron you could go either way this year. Kawhi's defense is better than Lebron's and vice versa on offense. It's not outrageous to have Lebron as number 4 this year.

Sweet comeback.
Not sure what else you expect when you un-ironically claim Westbrook is more valuable. He wasn't even the MVP of OKC until this year, but yeah he's totes legit MVP candidate. Legend has it that he's still fighting his own team for rebounds to pad those stats.

He didn't fight his team for those rebounds, his big men boxed people out so he could get them. Other than that your SexWarrior impression needs some work. Westbrook lead the league in scoring, PER and averaged a triple double, with some admittedly padded rebound stats. He is obviously a top three MVP candidate and will probably win it. James Harden was the super productive heart and soul of a D'antoni offense-or-bust system and is another no-brained candidate. You can easily make a Lebron is top 3 candidate, I'm not saying otherwise, but you can easily make a Kawhi argument too. His defense is through the roof and he blossomed in to a dominant offensive player this season too. Its totally reasonable to have LBJ 4th, poor guy. I'm pretty sure the one person who didn't vote for him on the all-NBA team is just hating though.

Addendum: Let's not forget that the Cavs seriously struggled through the middle of the season too. If the Cavs dominated wire to wire we are having a different conversation.

But trump was rather incredulous that they were an ally and thought it ridiculous and corrupt to accept money from them.

Didn't Trump spend a bunch of time bitching about the US relations with Saudi Arabia? He's not draining the swamp he is the fucking swamp.

How do you know Trump isn't as corrupt?  I am not disagreeing necessarily, but that seems like something you don't really have any way of knowing.

Lebron is bitched to reporters that he wasn't in the top 3 for MVP voting and that he wasn't a unanimous pick for the All-NBA first team.  Poor guy.

Both of your parties are shit, so I don't envy having to vote in the States.  At least in Canada we have three shit parties.

Influenced how? If you mean that their media and leaders openly endorsed him and spread some dubious rumours worldwide to boost his popularity - sorry, that's hardly controversial. They can voice their views much like anyone else. The alternative would be censorship of the media, which would be a bigger issue.

Which is what I said, everyone can see that Russia influenced the election to some degree.  No conspiracy there.

What has also been reported is that the Trump campaign had 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians, which is a no no.  Perhaps they were innocuous, perhaps not, but it is something that should be put to rest one way or the other.

There is no Michale Flynn "collusion" with the Russian government -- all he is accused of is receiving payment for a speech/interview he once gave to Russia Today in 2015.

Incorrect, this is not why he was dismissed as National Security Advisor.

The accusations against Trump are completely fabricated. There is no evidence or merit whatsoever.

The Trump campaign also had 18 undisclosed communications with Russia, which after the actions of Michael Flynn just further muddies the waters.

yeah i'm still not into the "reasonable arguments become less reasonable when you consider that unreasonable arguments also exist" thing.
There is no reasonable argument here. There are two conspiracy theories: One that Russia illegally controlled the American election, and one that Trump is a super-secret traitor. I choose to laugh about the latter because it's funnier, but both are patently retarded.

There is also the theory that Russia influenced the election, which is much more reasonable. It's pretty obvious they tried to do that just from Putin's endorsements, whether or not anything more clandestine happened is speculative to us proles that have no access the l33t intel.

how so?  i assume you're referring to putin's remark about revealing what was said in the meeting, yeah?
I'm just connecting the dots. If Trump is a super special Russian spy who got super-hacked into the election by Russia, and if he then revealed TOP SEKRIT info to Russia, does it not speak to reason that it's part of the same conspiracy?

For the avoidance of doubt: I think it's absolutely fucking hilarious that Democrats keep floundering around over this kind of shit. I wish someone would write down a thorough summary of all the crazy Illuminati shit that the Dems have claimed to date. It would blow the Republican classics in no time.

My take on the classified info divulging was less about ties to Russia and more about Trump's ineptness surrounding sensitive intelligence and security matters.

Rich was killed as he walked home in D.C.. He was shot twice in the back but wasn't robbed. His wallet, cellphone, keys, watch and necklace were all left on him.

Weird as fuck. But this is a Trump thread. To be clear, Trump conspiracies here, HRC conspiracies elsewhere.

I heard on the radio it was confirmed false. 

Trump would disagree.

Congrats to Chelsea on winning the league. Very dominant season.

I'm sure Chelsea is touched that you congratulated them here.

I have a lot of people I would have to do a very smug, "I told you so!" to. Then hope for the best for America because Mike Pence takes power.
