I love how Trump is like:

"She's lying and I have proof"
which is funny since every time he says he has proof, he hasn't shown any.  My god, he's an internet troll through and through.

My issue with this whole thing is that the words, in this case, lack tone and context.  You can say something like...

"I'm sorry your husband died, but he knew what he was signing up for and we're proud that he chose that."
or
"Yeah, well, he knew what he was signing up for.  No reason to cry."

So yeah, this could easily be mountain from a molehill.

Why? Do you believe her - and by extension, Trump's - side of the story? I don't. Either Trump or Wilson is lying, and it's almost certainly Trump. He has a history of disrespecting veterans, being crude and insensitive in the face of tragedy, and blatant dishonesty.

People also have a history of overblowing Trump's actions. It seems better to remain agnostic at this stage when it is just a playground argument.

Rama Set basically stated my opinion for me. I don't know what the truth is here, neither do you, and with all the legitimate and verifiable things to criticize Trump about the media shouldn't have blown up over something that's essentially hearsay. One way or the other I doubt Trump was intentionally insensitive in this instance, and the media storm that has built up around it seems overdone to me.

Coming soon: the hilarious SNL sketch where Alec Baldwin calls a grieving widow and tells her to suck it.

So, summary:
Russia basically tried to get people ready to fight each other, dividing the nation best it could.
While I don't think Trump colluded as this seems very "hit both sides" kinda thing, if he did, it would explain why he was so against polls and his "I'll accept the results if I win." statement.  What better way to sow discord than to have your unpopular front runner claim the election was rigged, lose, and spend the next year complaining about it as loud as possible, asking for people to rise up against a corrupt system.

Having Trump win probably only made it a little harder to sow discord since the super angry base got what they wanted.

Also: Mitch McConnell must hate his job right now.  Having to say "Oh yes, I trust Trump and we're so close." while Trump insults him on twitter.

Making Republicans squirm has actually been one of the more satisfying aspects of Trump's presidency.

This thread is about Trump. Although, like Trump, Antifa are dicks, this probably doesn't belong here.

He didn't forget, per se, he never meant to send a check until he was called out on it; he probably forgot about the offer within five minutes of making it because there were no real good intentions behind it. Trump just likes to get a positive reaction from people so he often says whatever he thinks will get that reaction, whether it's true, or an honest offer, or not. Fuck Trump.

Anyhoo in other news:
http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/analysis-corker-draws-line-sand-questioning-trumps-fitness/story?id=50684528

My analysis? Corker is emboldened to speak honestly because he's not up for reelection; the fact that other Republican senators agree with him is meaningless because duh anyone with a brain sees by now that he's not fit for office but they're too much of pussies to really do anything about it and the fact that Corker waited until after he announced he wasn't seeking reelection means he's just as much of a pussy as the rest ( while also demonstrating the point). The author of this article is being naively optimistic in thinking Corker's recent actions mean anything at all as far as the big picture is concerned.

Agreed.  At best it will keep the infighting going.

Oops.

Please please please don't run again in 2020, Hillary.  Give your party a chance.

Don't understand what HC has done wrong here? Presumably they got some intel that Trump had been up to shannanigans with the Russians so paid for some Opposition Research into it.

They paid a foreign national.  Thats the issue.
See, Trumps group just talked to a lawyer.  HC paid a former spy.
