Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 20, 2019

In a lawsuit filed today against Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., who recently subpoenaed eight years of Trump's tax returns to determine if the Trump Organization falsified business records relating to Stormy Daniels payments, the president's lawyers claim such a request is unconstitutional because the founding fathers believed sitting presidents should not be subject to the criminal process.

Sounds like a good time for the Senate to step in!

What we have here is a Constitutional Crisis and unfortunately a crooked AG and a SC full of political hacks. Our system was designed when honor meant something, it doesn't work today. I think we made our biggest mistake with Nixon, he should have been punished for his crimes, as should Reagan have been, as should H.W. Bush, as should G.W. Bush have been. If they all had been we would not be where we are today.

False headline. Trump did not say that.

#10. There's no quotes in the headline, so it's not suggesting Trump uttered those very words.

What follows a person's name and a colon is considered a quote. Did you not learn this in HS English.

"4. Use a colon to introduce extended quotations. You should not use quotation marks and you should single space the quotation and indent from the left margin."

There are many more references that confirm this rule. Google is your friend.

Feel free to snoofygames the ---- out of them. I'm sure you will.

Its not an extended quotation.

It's a synopsis of a legal position advanced by Trump's lawyers.

Goat, are we're really going to argue grammar again after you got it so wrong last time?

In a headline, a colon followed by a single quotation mark indicates what follows is a direct quote. A colon followed by just serious (no question marks) indicates a paraphrase.

Just words. Not just serious. I swear my autocorrect is almost as dumb as trump.

There are still people, like sheepleschism, who believe in the maxim, "innocent until proven guilty". That you don't sums you up. Why don't you get your cowardly party to actually prove Trump is guilty of crimes?

And what better way to prolong that innocence than to adhere to a standard of justice in which Trump's alleged crimes can't be investigated while Trump is President!

You said I got it wrong. Doesn't mean I was.

I cited my source. Take it up with them, or provide your own that rebuts it.

Would help if sycophants wouldn't support a president that withholds all the evidence.
The one thing trump taught me was how dumb it is to let the president control the justice department.

Why did you exclude intersectional X neutral and non-binary persons in your sexist rant, hater?

And isn't 'ladies' a misogynist term? Are you an alt-right nazi or something?

He controls congress. They won't do the right thing and impeach him, after all. He's probably trying to get control of the judicial branch of government as well, I'm sure. But for now he's probably saying "two out of three ain't bad!"

I was replying to snoofy's post #11 on the subject. I would have never brought it up if he hadn't first

Better luck next time playing 'gotcha goat'.

When you say "hillary moron", I presume you mean Hillary Clinton?

Wanna be King Cyrus vs Cyrus the Wise.

And if Trump has done no wrong his records can't possibly result in criminal prosecution.

I'm so old I remember the (R)tards screaming "No one is above the law Mr. President" when the hilljacks tried to throw Bill Clinton out of office over a BJ.

Then there's the little matter of "the party of fiscal responsibility" running up trillion $ deficits.
