"I go to church and I love God and I love my church," Trump boldly pronounced but in an interview on Bloomberg TV's "With All Due Respect." But he said the Bible was too personal to him to "get into specifics."

"The Bible means a lot to me, but I don't want to get into specifics," Trump told Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin, refusing to list one or two favorite verses.

Pressed again, Trump said the Bible was simply too personal to discuss publicly: "I wouldn't want to get into it because to me that's very personal. You know, when I talk about the Bible, it's very personal, so I don't want to get into verses."

John Heilemann, searching for a workaround, then asked Trump if he considered himself "an Old Testament guy or a New Testament guy."

"Probably equal," Trump answered matter-of-factly, explaining his inability to select just one: "The whole Bible is just incredible.”

lol this exchange is amazing

How about the border?

How about radical inflation?

those are policy positions you don't like, not examples of biden's supposed mental deficiencies. unless you're saying he forgot the border existed or something? idgi.

i'm not taking a position on biden's policies, it's cool if you hate them. not my point.

We had 4 years of Trump before and although I tired of his nonsense the world didn’t fall apart.

is the world currently falling apart? how is biden any different in this respect?

Biden just isn’t well enough to be president. He’s not well enough physically or mentally.

i keep hearing this. based on what? a video of a guy with a stutter fumbling some words? a news report that someone said he forgot a thing? is there anything more substantive to this claim than just "i read thing that say joe dumb"? because i kinda feel like if literally every single moment of my life were being watched and recorded, you may be able to find some of instances in which i don't seem too bright.

has there been a policy breakdown somewhere? or any material consequence you can point to?

fwiw i don't give two shits about biden, i just think this whole line of thought is weird.

lol just so we're clear, trump isn't even denying doing the thing that he's saying biden should be impeached for, which has literally no evidence to support it in biden's case. jesus christ.

"I don't get $8 million for doing nothing," Trump added.

literal lmao my ass is all the way off rn fr

they're making this argument because they don't believe it will ever apply to biden. their dream is for the trial to be delayed, get trump elected in 2024, then have the courts rule that the president is an unquestionable deity with supreme authority, then manufacture a "reason" to suspend the constitution and future elections and start executing political enemies. that's the end goal. they're not even hiding it lol.

Well maybe at least wait until he is sentenced to jail before declaring that you guys are right about this. It could be that you guys are wrong, so it is best to keep to yourselves until the time comes.

lol this is you, right? https://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=17088.msg223237

i've already explained this. of course everyone already has to testify truthfully. you're completely missing the point.

the value of the plea deal is not that the prosecutor can make you say certain things -- it's that the prosecutor can subpoena you to testify, which they cannot do if you are a defendant. if these folks don't plead out, then the prosecutor can't make them testify at all. it's not about making people say certain things.

Japan implemented its nationwide vaccination program against COVID-19 in 2021, immunizing more than one million people (approximately 1%) a day. However, the direct and indirect impacts of the program at the population level have yet to be fully evaluated. To assess the vaccine effectiveness during the Delta variant (B.1.617.2) epidemic in 2021, we used a renewal process model. A transmission model was fitted to the confirmed cases from 17 February to 30 November 2021. In the absence of vaccination, the cumulative numbers of infections and deaths during the study period were estimated to be 63.3 million (95% confidence interval [CI] 63.2–63.6) and 364,000 (95% CI 363–366), respectively; the actual numbers of infections and deaths were 4.7 million and 10,000, respectively. Were the vaccination implemented 14 days earlier, there could have been 54% and 48% fewer cases and deaths, respectively, than the actual numbers. We demonstrated the very high effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination in Japan during 2021, which reduced mortality by more than 97% compared with the counterfactual scenario. The timing of expanding vaccination and vaccine recipients could be key to mitigating the disease burden of COVID-19. Rapid and proper decision making based on firm epidemiological input is vital.

hehe these prosecutors don't even know you have to tell the truth in court already!!!  ;D ;D ;D

lmao of course anyone testifying in court has to tell the truth. but you can't simply compel the testimony of a criminal or civil defendant. the prosecutor can't just be like "i call the defendant to the stand and they have to answer all my questions truthfully now. gotcha!" lol do you seriously not get how this works?

mounds of damning evidence now piling up by the day, including the release on Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee of reams of text messages and emails between Hunter Biden, his uncle James Biden, and a colorful array of foreign oligarchs, business associates, and bagmen.

hey which one of those is joe biden

Considering how you spent the months of October, November, December of 2020 and January to March of 2021 saying how Trump won/will win/have the election overturned... I'm guessing you're an expert on denial.

let's not forget the time he spent a whole month insisting that obama and hillary had been executed because he saw one tweet about it lol

truth is a complete defense to defamation. i keep being told that there are veritable mountains of proof that the election was rigged. giuliani certainly has access to that so-called mountain. and sharing that evidence would take him off the hook for having to pay potentially millions of dollars in damages.

so once again, a member of trump's inner circle has a direct interest in proving to a court that their claims of election fraud are true -- are given the chance to do so -- and then do not even really try.

if the candidate i'd been hyping for the last eight years just got indicted for attempting to overthrow american democracy, i'd probably wanna change the subject to some meaningless david brooks column, too.
