The racist comments by Laura Ingraham are just unacceptable. I would like a list of the companies that advertise on her show so I can boycott them. This is Not my American.
DENISE MUST BE ONE OF THOSE DUMMYCRATS WHO HATE AMERICA AND THEMSELVES. DEMOCRAT THUGS ARE LOSING THEIR MINDS.
Almost comical all the concerns that if Trump is interviewed, Mueller and team will set up a perjury trap for him. Clinton was foolish enough to be accused of perjury. He lied. Perjury is not being truthful when you've taken an oath to do so. Are you all worried that Trump won't be truthful? Guess I am. He's no Honest Abe by any means.
Tell the truth and there's nothing to be paranoid about.
You are blessed with guile. But people in the know, ain't buyin. So go back to the drawing board, you can come up with something better than this feeble attempt to snooker us. Oh, I think it's time for you to feed the jackass. Come to think about it, the Democrats couldn't have chosen a better mascot.
No attempt to "snooker" you or anyone else. Your paranoia is growing.
Bottom line. Tell the truth and you won't be accused of perjury. Quite simple really.
Perjury, nice try. An unbiased review of our communication on this site, would likely determine that you suffer from paranoia. If you go back and review your first post, it is you who accused others of paranoia. In typical left wing fashion, you have ascribed to others, what you suffer from yourself.
Once again you dispute comments from others about statements that have been in the news.
WH lawyer Ty Cobb, Giuliani and several others have been warning that Mueller will attempt to set a "perjury trap " for Trump. That is paranoia. If the President is interviewed and speaks the truth there will be no perjury. Problem is that he doesn't know what information they have compiled from months of interviews with a multitude of people....and I think that is freaking him and his cronies out. Just my humble opinion. We'll know in time, won't we?
Now you say the lawyers are paranoid. Other than yourself, is their anyone else who you don't consider paranoid.
I suggest that the virulent hatred of Donald Trump, has led many left leaning people to become paranoid. I vehemently disagreed with the Obama Presidency, but I agonized thru all 8 years of it, without developing paranoia. I just hoped and supported a change in the leadership of our country, that would lead us in a better direction. We now have that leader. Instead of making your unqualified diagnosis of paranoia, you might consider taking the approach that I took with the Obama Presidency.
If you are a degreed professional, which I doubt, please advise of your qualifications. When you find fault and belittle defense lawyers and call them paranoid, you again invite skepticism of your credentials.
The posts are not hatred of Trump. The claims that Mueller's team may set up a "perjury trap" for the president are ridiculous and DO involve paranoid thinking. What don't you understand about the fact that if and when the president is called to testify, there is no perjury possible if he is truthful under oath???? So the accusations are ridiculous. Honest people can not be trapped into lying. They either lie or they speak the truth.
Why so worried and defensive?
Worried and defensive, I don't think so!
I have heard at least a dozen lawyers, former FBI agents, former Justice Department officials, as well as a former Attorney General, all state that it would be unwise to testify to Mueller. I am not a lawyer, but I have hired a few during my lifetime to resolve problems. In every instance I learned something new about how the legal system works and how vulnerable people are.
Martha Stewart is an example of what can happen when the 'system' goes after you. She inadvertently incorrectily responded about a financial transaction, and she was sentenced and served time in prison.
So my navet has been replaced by reality based on experience. I'm far from being paranoid, but you could call me skeptical and I wouldn't disagree. What we have already found out about the efforts in the FBI and Justice Department to undermine Trump, is a warning of an illegimate investigation. I'm not willing to suspend credulity by accepting the Mueller investigation, when we now have found out that a fake dossier was used to justify it.
So, your paranoia charge is countered by my acknowledged skepticism. You delve into clinical diagnosis, while I deal with reality. Toodles, as I used to hear my grandmother say.
You are one strong minded person. You don't accept the statements of many credentialed people in the justice system, that warn about perjury traps that are commonly used by law enforcement. When you do not accept the reality of what happens in the legal system today, I hope you don't learn this lesson the hard way. Also, watch those tax returns, and make sure they are 100% correct. The Feds love to go after those.
Conquer and divide. The old American government/corporate playbook. And you take the bait like a Jackyl in the wild.
Lonnie, I've been suckered many times by gals with violent thrusts of breast and rump. This is also aided by a curvey set of gams with a slight pleasure bend. So being suckered is not always a bad thing. Try it sometime when you grow up. Your attitude might improve with the experience.
Sorry ladies for my response to Lonnie, but I wanted to ring his bell. Posts like his are given a boomerang response from me.
"Thrusts of breast and rump"... Say what?
Thad....just a quote from an old book I read about 50 years ago. Darn problem is, I can't recall the books name.
Maybe you better leave that rump alone, violent thruster
Violent thrusts of breast and rump? Have you lost your mind or are these just fantasies?
Lonnie , old gov playbook ?? Please spare us the bull crap , the only SUCKER is one that can't comprehend what this President is doing for the country and the people. Even you !
Don't matter if you like Trump or not , when you disrespect the President, what you're actually doing is hurting yourself , how the hell does Resist/obstruct make out country better ? Just because there is a Republican President and you don't like him , it gives you the right to act out and try to prevent all Americans from making things better for themselves. That's freaking SICK !!!! Maybe when you grow up you'll understand ?
Heil Trump everyone!
I guess you have neglected to remember how many republicans and others attempted to disgrace President Obama, for the entire 8 years that he held the highest office in the land. From good ' ol Mitch and his band who vowed on election night to fight and guarantee he would never see a second term. Ted Nugent calling Obama a sub-human mongrel and Trump with his years of the birther conspiracy sh-- that was proven to be false.
So don't promote or expect me to believe all this garbage about poor Trump , the victim, being disrespected.
If the shoe were on the other foot and Democrats were reacting with the same lying and vitriol as Trump, you supporters would be screaming at the top of your lungs. In fact, you still are.
Enough of your nonsense.
Tell me something new. More repetitive and redundant than a Trump rally!
What's comical is your febal attempt to get someone to believe you !
Democrats are interested in one thing , one thing only, to destroy Trump, using anything and everything available. Trump is smarter than you jackass's think , for him to waste his time sitting down with Herman Munster Mueller who's investigation is unsubstantiated and is illegal is nuts !
The orange clown is fully capable of destroying himself. : ^ )
Get ready for Mueller time! The results will soon be in Some things are worth waiting for!
Yes yes yes ! Keep that investigation going chug away Mueller , the more you do the more corruption on Clinton/Obama will be opened up !!!! Choo Choo !!!!
Try to forget about Clinton Obama if you can.
Focus on the Russian investigation and watch your traitor creep go down.
Just watched the President boasting about the defense policy bill and NOT ONCE did he mention the man it was named for and in honor of .....Senator McCain. Of course he managed to get in jabs about the fake news.
Disgraceful. I was honestly admiring his speech until it became clear that John McCain 's name, and his service both as a vet and on these issues in Congress, would be deliberately left out.
You seem to forget that the Trump Way is to hit back twice as hard when someone attacks him. McCain has attacked Trump many times, including his vote on the repeal of the ACA, which caused the failure of the repeal.
Sen McCain has served this country well and we owe him our gratitude and prayers. He at times has also been a real pain in the rump, and has therefore acquired the name of maverick. When McCain has errored, I have no recollection of him ever apologizing. Seems like maybe he and Trump are alike in this regard.
I don't ever forget Trump's way of hitting back twice as hard and it results in nothing but more bitterness and division.
How about once in awhile appealing to the better nature of our angels as Lincoln advised?
Political rifts aside, the man is dying, sacrificed 5 1/2 years of his life in a POW camp ( of course because he was captured Trump said he was not a hero) and worked hard to make this bill a reality. It was named in honor of him. And the president doesn't have the decency to even speak his name?
It is a disgrace.
In the words of Walter Matthau, holy moley. I just agreed with you that Sen McCain is a hero who deserves our thanks and prayers. I've written favorably of the Senator, on this site many times, mostly on timely issues, and before his recent illness.
During those posts I have also stated that John McCain, in spite of his education at the Naval Academy, apparently has not learned a very important lesson. That lesson is 'teamwork'! His failures have caused much consternation at critical times on many issues. Some of his cooperative efforts with Democrats have had disastrous effects. I will cite the Immigration Reform Act, that refocused quotas from western nations to third world nations. Unless you are blind, you can see the negative effects that has resulted. Just today, I read that 56% of one and a half million of these immigrants are on food stamps and receiving government financed healthcare.
So, I'll give Sen McCain credit for his sacrifice and his service to our Nation. I'll thank him for his hard work in both the US House of Representatives and the Senate. I thank him for support of our military, while Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee I pray for his health and hope for his recovery. But I will not forget the mistakes he has made and his unwillingness to be a team player.
I agree that Senator McCain's military service to our country deserves respect and gratitude - just as the service of all our military deserve respect and gratitude. Where I differ, from probably the thinking norm, is that I have found Senator McCain's term in Congress as one of great disappointment. With all this said, I feel it is important that we hold him, and his family, in our thoughts and prayers during his time of illness.
I agree completely and I think we have debated John before this latest threat to his health. Best wishes.
I respect the right of posters to express disappointment about Senator McCain regarding some of his political decisions and opinions. Many also rightly voiced gratitude for his service to our country and prayers as he faces a life threatening disease.
However, I have not yet read one reply to the fact that President Trump did not mention his name while praising the defense bill that his colleagues named in his honor.
These are separate issues. Do you agree with this snubbing of a man who worked so hard to make this bill possible?
Unlike you, I do not feel it is my place to determine how the President speaks about legislation. You obviously have the right to criticize what he says or doesn't say. Likewise, I have the same right. The larger issue here is what is in the eyes of the beholder. Trumps critics daily, find reasons to complain or deride him. I measure his Presidency by the Programs he has put into place and the results he is achieving. I don't like some of his tweets, but I focus on the larger picture.
At the same time, I frequently tune in the daily Press briefings. I find the lack of decorum and professionalism by the White House correspondents to be as objectionable as anything the President says. So if you want to grouse about the President, keep it up. I will continue to look at, and evaluate, the larger scope of "the swamp". I'm sure we will both have plenty to keep us occupied.
I guess it comes down to this, regardless of the mistakes you feel Senator McCain has made.
Do you agree with the fact that our President deliberately neglected to even utter John McCain's name in a ceremony that dealt with a bill named for and honoring him?
Sorry but I don't. This to me is an issue of being willing to move beyond political differences and take the high road.
Additionally and apart from this issue, I certainly would not consider our President to be a team player. He continues to make horrible mocking comments about his own Attorney General who was one of his most loyal supporters, as well as others. I don't like it, it is not befitting of someone who holds the highest office in the land and is a poor example to set for our children. As the old saying goes, the children are watching.
As I have stated in another response above, I don't assign myself as a literary critic of how the President speaks or what he says. I tend to reserve my evaluations to what he does about his campaign promises and the success/or lack of success, that is achieved.
At the risk of being accused of deflecting your post, I will call attention to our immediate past President. He was a great talker but not so much of a doer. I cite red line in Syria, keep your Doctor, keep your same medical plan; I'm sure you get the thrust of my point. So I support the person who is a person of action, rather than the erudite person of great promises, but no accomplishment.
FUCK John McCain , he's the reason Obama care still exists.
Anonymous returns wIth his or her one liners. Incapable of posting without dropping the F bomb. Sure sign of limited intelligence.
Yes John McCain is the reason Obamacare, in some form, still exists. However, your choice of words could use more thought.
I have to agree with the Sage. McCain is a coward just like Trump says. Who cares if he is a sick former POW. Trump went through just as difficult times trying to anchor The Apprentice. God bless our one true patriot. McCain should be jailed!
Excuse the language but this is pure bull crap. Brave Trump weathering all the difficult times on the Apprentice. And to think he did that, even with his bone spurs.
That you would even dare to compare a Veteran and survivor of a POW camp to a reality show host is unbelievable.
One of the most ignorant posts I've ever read on this board.
By the way, I'm also a Vietnam vet. Have you served?
William, it is clear that the anonymous post you responded to, was designed to aggravate others. Of course Sen McCain is a patriot who carries his pain from war injuries to this day. When anonymous states he agrees with me, nothing could be further from the truth. Anonymous is just a baiter on this site, who apparently enjoys toying with others.
So now you know what it feels like. Russian bots, distortion, baiting. Your man Trump and Cambridge Analyticl/Facebook made a killing out of using us. Hm, and still ya don't get it. C'mon brother. You are a tool, my friend. Best, daddy Tee in Milwaukeeee
Daddy, splain a little more on the Cambridge Analytical business. I'm unclear of your meaning.
Appreciate your feedback. Anonymous is a baiter and I grabbed the hook instead of just ignoring it. Trouble is I think some of these jerks who bait really do believe what they write.
William, happy to hear from you. The trouble is, we experience more than one person posting under the anonymous tag line. Some of these posts are interesting and enlightening. However, those that are obviously designed to bait and agrivate, are best left unresponded. Some people are reluctant to use a name or an acronym to identify themselves, and so this adds to further confusion. But all in all it's a good site with a lot of wise contributors.
Close your lips and open your ears. The investigation is already involved in the DNC, Hillary, Podesta, Steele, cabal. When the crap hits the sliding focus, look out.
Yo Lynn, you and your dummiecrat friends are the traitors ! For not supporting your country or President. Don't matter who is in the President seat .So just admit that you hate this country and everything it stands for.
Birds of a feather. Both narcissists, minimal credibility.
Trump at one time praises Omarosa, calls her awesome and wonderful and now she's a dog. Says he had warnings that she was trouble but admits he kept her on because she said GREAT things about him. And some of you still believe he has your interests at heart?
And Omarosa now discrediting Trump. If some of these accusations are true and as horrible as she claims, why didn't she speak out or leave?
They've both met their match and we have to listen to their garbage and feuding for who knows how long.
On Omarosa....Trump knew her reputation as trouble from 'The Apprentice'. However he trusted her loyalty and therefore gave her a high profile position to lead an outreach program into the African American Communities. It was a opportunity of a lifetime, and after leaving government, she would have had unlimited offers in corporate America to lead outreach programs and recruitment efforts for corporations.
Unfortunately, Trumps loyality to her was not reciprocated, and she elected to bite the hand that fed her. It's proof again that you can never know what lies in people's hearts. It should also be a reminder to Trump of the message he often repeated during the campaign. The message I refer to is contained in the story about 'the snake'. The story ends when the snake wonders why anyone should be surprised, that the snake gave a deadly bite to the maiden, who had taken it in, and saved its life. In Omarosa situation she is worse than a snake. I Will always think of her as a viper with a back stabbing stiletto in hand.
Agree with many of your comments but disagree with others. I think sometimes we CAN know what is in people's hearts. Not always but often they give us many clues along the way.
I don't necessarily support Omarosa and she has also shown a pattern of lack of credibility, nastiness and using others to promote herself.
Haven't read her book and don't plan to. Have just tread excerpts, some of which at this point have no factual basis.
What does concern me is her claim that when Gene Simmons was on the Apotentice, he appeared to make sexually charged comments about Ivanka which Trump encouraged. This was like a repeat of Trump's interview ( which is verified on tape/) years ago with Howard Stern in which Trump gave him permission to refer to his daughter as a "piece of ass". I was disgusted and still am, by that exchange.
As they say, even the flattest pancake has two sides. We all need to do everything we can to seek the truth whatever that may turn out to be.
Well....I had not heard about either of these matters. I've never followed Howard Stern, I used to listen to Imus, who was always competing with Stern.
As we know, Mr Simmons has recently made the news headlines because of allegations of harassment of women. I'm surprised these incidents, that you relate here, have not received more News coverage.
You may or may not be aware that Gene Simmons has been barred from Fox for his behavior. Don't misunderstand me, I do not in any way consider Omarosa credible, but my message re Gene Simmons came to mind when I read your posting.
I commend Fox for barring Gene Simmons. He was rude, crude and disrespectful to their staff.
It is not simply Simmon's behavior. It is what seems to be a pattern of Donald Trump encouraging and engaging in sexual banter about his daughter.
In addition to the interviews he has also made a few creepy and cringe-worthy comments about her. And in an interview when Tiffany was an infant he speculated about how her body might develop . Said she had her mother's legs but pointed to his chest and implied they didn't know about her breasts.
Does anyone believe this is healthy, appropriate and acceptable talk by a father?
We know Trump is a creep. But his hard core fans don't mind so much. It is like having an uncle that is a pedophile. And everybody back slaps him at the family reunion.
My comment regarding Gene Simmons was just a thought that crossed my mind. Why in heavens name did you feel it appropriate to try to turn it into something it was not - a political statement by trying to place blame on someone not even involved.
No, it is inappropriate and the kind of thing we hear on TV entertainment shows every day. When Trump was in the entertainment industry he spake (biblical reference) as an entertainer, now he is a politician and he hasn't quite learned to speak with fork'ed tongue. Regardless, the Lord thru Grace, absolves mankind's sins. So Trump can soldier on, free of his past mistakes, knowing that the Lord has forgiven him, even though his detractors won't. I seem to remember that passage from scripture that states 'vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord'. So, I'll leave the judgement of Trump in the hands of the Lord, and I'll continue to support his efforts to MAGA.
Trump actually had more than one disgusting interview with Stern about women and their sexual escapades. All can be researched and verified online. Some involved Ivanka. In one they discussed Ivanka's breasts, whether or not she had implants and talked about how voluptuous she is.
Despicable that a father would talk about his daughter in those terms in any setting, much less on a public broadcast.
Considering these past incidents, I tend to believe that Omarosa's claims about Gene Simmons are credible.
Three men who seem to enjoy engaging in vulgar, misogynistic talk.
If all of these events that you refer to, are of public media records, I do not understand why the DNC and their media friends, would not have exploited them. NBC certainly did not have any reservation when they went public with the Bush tape. With all these revelations considered, how much effect do you think it will have on Trumps supporters?
If more people researched news from all sources they would have been aware of these comments and interviews. They are not recent by any means but can be easily validated on video and audio tapes.
It didn't have an impact on the President's supporters, won't now and never will
. To some rhetoric and inappropriate language and behavior don't matter. To me they do and it has nothing to do with politics. I would feel the same way if anyone, regardless of political leanings, had diminished their child, adult or not, in this manner.
How true your concern about Trump and Omarosa are more important, as well as worthy of detailed scrutiny, than administration accomplishments that affect and make our life's better! Not!! As I see it, the longer we dwell upon insignificant rethoric, the longer we overlook and do not hear discussions about important issues of the day (if we can ever get the media to return to professionalism).
You are absolutely correct this whole nonsense is garbage, but it fuels the far left narrative, along with the media, agenda. It won't last long - accomplishments will last.
Thank you for your posting.
Our president is, and will continue to be under scrutiny as have all presidents.
We're back to the old argument that the ends justify the means and that issues re character, values, morals and respect should take a back burner to "accomplishments", I don't think they are mutually exclusive and feel that both are important.
You and I will probably never agree but that's o.k. with me. I am sincere in saying that I respect your posts and opinions and will look forward to reading more. We hopefully learn from our differences.
Thank you for your comments. It is good to have dialogue covering different views, but most importantly, done with respect. You are so right that we learn from our differences. When you think about it, this element seems to be missing in most conversations/debates today. Placing blame, foul language, emotional outbursts, or discrediting others seems to paramount. Remember the days when we all stuck together, learned from each other and moved forward in more productive ways?
I do not necessarily believe the ends justify the means, but would like more emphasis on matters that truly affect our everyday lives, leaving the nonsense either on the cutting room floor or in the tabloid's where it belongs. Ratings are fine, personal opinions on-air okay, (as long as they are stated as such), but professionalism surpasses all. Guess my thoughts are just wishful thinking.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day, as well as find time to post more views.
So today we have Donald Trump, a sitting President, commenting on the Manafort fed' l trial while the jury is still deliberating! He states that Manafort is a good person and that this is a sad day for America.
What's sad is that such a buffoon sits in the Oval Office and has no clue as to how the govt. or courts operate or our system of checks and balances.
What is more surprising is that deranged nitwits like you enjoy first amendment rights in America. When searching for buffoons try looking into a mirror. Or you might also try pulling your bottom lip over your head, then swallowing. When you come out the other end, you will have had a close experience with the crap you are peddling on this site. C'est la vie!
Those who feel entitled don't think the rules apply to them. Manafort was taken off house arrest and sent to prison after he attempted to tamper with witnesses.
This is not a sequestered jury and for the President to comment before a verdict is reached is unethical at the least. Trump thinks Manafort is a very good person. He also felt there were some "very fine people" among the violent White Supremacists.
Then I would suggest you tell the President to not engage in what you term insignificant rhetoric. He is equally as responsible as you want the media to be for returning to professionalism. He fuels the fire with his divisive and often cruel tweets and then whines like a petulant child that no one talks about his accomplishments. If you follow most of his speeches you will note that he does not seem able to speak about his goals or accomplishments without criticizing, blaming or demeaning others. It is rarely a focused speech on agenda.
It is a two way street but many treat it as a one way. Can you acknowledge that the President holds some responsibility also?
"Dummycrats"... that is so clever! Not bad for an inbred hillbilly uneducated Trump fan. Next thing you know, Trump is hoing to learn time zones!!!
