Who denied that, kudzu? I think most people will acknowledge that rich people often settle lawsuits without admitting guilt because it's cheaper than going to court. You didn't know this? Slick Willie did it with Juanita Broaddrick.

Also, lawsuits are a civil matter. They don't absolve anyone from a criminal act.

Repubicans don't mind pretty much any kind of rape, they deny it's even a thing, like global warming or Russian interference in our elections.

They don't mind Gym Jordan, Denny Hastert, Roy Moore or the president and his 20+ sexual misconduct allegations/admissions on tape and settled lawsuits. His own wife alleged that he raped her in court, but he bought her silence, so it's OK.

The whatabout list is pretty short, but it always comes up whenever someone on "their side" is accused of sexual misconduct. It doesn't matter if it's true, someone else did something bad so it doesn't matter.

A black girl lied about getting raped once, therefore most rape claims are false.
Signed,
Trumpers and Never Trumpers.

I can't wait for the next tell-all telling us how Trump raped his kindergarten teacher on his first day in school.

RAY,
We'll need some new adjectives for that event. Bombshell!! and Explosive!! are getting worn out.

We'll be sure to watch Fox for additional adjectives...they're as reputable as the National Enquirer.

Ray, why do you devote so much energy defending and deflecting for that pos in the White House? Seriously. What's in it for you? You are not stupid. You know the kind of man he is. And yet you obsequiously genuflect to that clown.

Drumpf defenders are in too deep. They can't back out, because they went full Trump. If I've learned anything about not-liberals over the last 30 years, it's that they can't accept or admit that they were wrong about anything. To them, admitting they were wrong about anything is losing. Easier to make up s--t from whole cloth, deflect, blame Hillary or Obama...anything but accept the facts. If the facts don't support their case, they simply reject them and put up a red herring or straw man to escape and move on to the next thread, where they can all get together to do it again about something else.

You're more likely to wind up getting asked questions about unrelated things than get a straight answer from any not-liberal. If they can't support their claims, the argument shifts to semantics or rhetoric. You're lying because you used hyperbole! You called Drumpf a douchebag, but you have no evidence to back up the fact that he's not a feminine hygiene product...LIAR! and on...

It's like a nightmarish version of Pee Wee's Playhouse, only with fascists.

I work with a right wing guy who was a big Trump supporter.....was.....the betrayal of the Kurds sas too much. He won't be voting for Trump again and I think there are many folks just like him.

Because you are a kid diddler, or because you live vicariously through the experiences of other kid diddlers?

#17 I laugh when i think about how for that guy, it wasn't the

-locking kids in cages
-grabbing women by their -------
-urging a foreign adversary to commit crimes against americans to help him in an election and gleefully accepting their support
-siding with Putin over our own intel agencies in Helsinki
-literally surrounding himself with criminals
-running virtually every government agency in bad faith
-calling nazis very fine people
-near-constant nepotism and emoluments violations
-tax cuts for billionaires
-denigrating a deceased senator who was a war hero
-
-embarrassing the nation with mind-numbing stupidity on an hourly basis

No, it was abandoning the Syrian Kurds that did it!

Whatever it takes, i guess.

Trump supporters don't care. In their minds, his record includes:
-winning the war in Syria and still helping our Kurd friends
-stopping abortion judges
-delivering those great tax breaks for families nationwide
-draining the swamp
-disarming the North Koreans of their nukes, while punishing them for killing Otto Warmbier
-building a border fence, from San Diego to Corpus Christi
-jailing HRC
-helping farmers and small businesses

And so much more. He keeps talking about these things, so it must be true about all he has done...

I'm surprised by the otherwise intelligent people who support Trump. They'd be much better as President, they aren't complete POS' like he is though they have some disagreeable politics. Maybe it's a pride thing, and they don't want to admit that they were wrong.

William's home was Hope, AR. He also paid women who accused him of rape and I hold that against him. Trump did the same and I place him in the same category.

Moral of the story is, if you didn't do anything wrong, don't pay anyone off.

#22 | Posted by lfthndthrds, That is a lie. Bill attended every grade of public school in Hot Springs, he was born in Hope, where his grand parents lived and his mother stayed while she was attending Nursing School. I was born in Oklahoma, and with a few years while my dad attended school getting a BS, and a tour at Fort Sill, I haven't lived there by chose ever. I grew up in Texas, my home of record. Hot Springs is the old Las Vegas of the south, complete with Mafia thugs and a thriving vice industry. Hope is Bible Belt standard. Politically it is more appealing to be from Hope, than Sin City.

When a criminal case fails, frequently wronged people can obtain justice of a sort with a nice civil suit payout from a city or police department protecting its crooked kkkops.

Have it your way on the home town but not on paying women off.. Trump is as shady as Clinton and no wonder they're so close to the deceased billionaire, Jeffrey Epstein.

I wonder if Ronan Farrow actually thinks Woody Allen is his father as his mother maintains even though he looks like Frank Sinatra whom his mother was also married to?
