In light of Trump’s latest Twitter tantrum, I am retracting my claim of Trump not admitting the Russian meddling happened.

Maybe he needs a safe space where the mean feminists won't be able to hurt his butt anymore.

Anita Sarkeesian took time out of her duties as a panelist at VidCon to call Sargon of Akkad "human garbage" and a "shit head".  His crime?  Watching her quietly.  Glad she is standing up against the evils of harassment.

Does this trigger you?

In grudging fairness, he's almost certainly just arguing against it as a hypothetical. If this is true, then why didn't Obama do anything, blah blah blah. It's still wrong, of course,

You're right. He can't possibly have access to the same evidence as everyone else in the intelligence community and the government who say they're sure the Russians tried to meddle, he's only the President.

I'm not talking about what he knows, only what he is or isn't admitting.

Quote
"When he found out that I -- you know, that there may be tapes out there, whether it's governmental tapes or anything else and who knows, I think his story may have changed," Trump said in a Fox News interview that aired Friday. "Then he has to tell what actually took place at the events."

Joke's on us, Trump was only pretending to be retarded. And he's apparently admitting that Comey told the truth now?

He was a good enough bluffer to trick the American people into electing him president, despite literally every indication that he was an awful person who would prove to be an awful president.

Comey is fucking neutral? Where did you ever get that impression?

I swear you really do think if you just say something it makes it true.

Comey said HIMSELF, under oath, that Trump's comments about Flynn DID NOT QUALIFY Obstruction of Justice.

Okay, but the investigation into Flynn does still exist.

[Trump] has sometimes, without prompting, injected. “I’m not under investigation” into conversations with associates and allies.

Both sides of the political aisle are guilty of using hyperbole to denigrate their opponents or exaggerate the consequences of their policies, and have been for many years. To try and pin it all on one side is insane.

They are posturing up for a major witch hunt that they only hope drags out until the midterms. Finding anything is secondary to just muddying the waters and trying to build a Trump obstruction of justice case.

A congressional investigation designed to stretch on as long as possible and push a narrative of perpetual scandal rather than genuinely investigate any real issues?



You don't say.

Since when does what Spicer says actually correlate to what Trump says or does?

John Wick: Chapter 2 (Chad Stahelski, 2017)

Largely more of the same satisfying action from the first movie, along with a more in-depth story and an increased focus on the intriguing (albeit ridiculous) secret society that apparently governs the underworld. The villain is kind of lame and comes across as a poor man's Antonio Banderas, the final battle is a little underwhelming, and I wish they had done some more with the returning side characters than have them just pop up to confirm that they still exist. The return of the cop who seems to have an understanding of what it is that Keanu does and turns a blind eye to it especially bugged me, because it's literally a repeat of the exact same beat from the first movie. What's the story with this guy? Is he a honest cop who's just too scared of Keanu to take any action against him? Are they old friends? Is he even really a cop at all? Give us something new about him! Anything!

In any case, the movie is still a lot of fun.

Just ignore him, gary. He obviously has nothing to say.

What premise? The GOP is accusing him of being an insider threat. That's pretty much a fact at this stage, don't you agree?

Nah, it's just a meme. We don't need to discuss it any further.

Why are you wasting your time and energy trying to analyze this? It's incoherent word salad, just like almost everything else Trump says.

My one issue with it was how passive the protagonist was for most of the book. Not that it didn't make sense in the story, but it got a little dull after a while to be following a main character who does little more than what he's told to do by someone else. The fact that he finally started making some decisions for himself and taking some big steps in the final act helped finish it off on a strong note, though. My other nitpick is the way he talked was a little...inconsistent. I feel like there may have an unused draft where he was an English professor instead of a working class ex-con.
