The only thing Joe and Mika are reallyg guilty of is promoting Donald Trump for several years before he announced his candidacy. They do own that though. I refuse to watch their show. Haven't watched it in years.

I wish "The Newsroom" sitcom was still around.

They predicted all of this.

Trump is the king of Birtherism. He's creates lies and conspiracies as readily as he breaths the air.

Trump isn't going to stop spreading his bullshht.

Trump thrives in chaos. He needs it. To distract from the criminal behavior of himself and his administration.

The President of the United States is accusing a popular media figure of murder.

This, people, is not normal.

It's safe to watch Morning Joe now. He divorced himself from the Republican party and blasts Trump up one side and down the other on a daily basis (long screeds.)

Which is why Trump is digging up all this conspiracy dirt.

The Newsroom will be seen again in commercials as the GOP shares Biden's 1988 history.

Typical FTQ post.

How many degrees did Biden have? Graduated in top half of his class?
What made him drop out of the 88 race?

GOP are idiots. Trump beat the whole clown car while the GOP quivered in fear.

To Trump, it's not politics as usual and that scares all pols

There's no sense in giving Trump any more jollies. Are you volunteering?

Do you know how many Republicans actually believe the COVID-19 Vaccine will really just be a way for Bill Gates to implant chips in them?

American conservatives have lost their minds. It started before Trump, but it got much, much worse once he got in and immediately went into his crackpot rants.

Yesterday a bunch of yayhoo Trumpists went marching through the Kentucky capital, waving guns around, crying about "tyranny" and hanging an effigy of the governor - whose handling of the Covid lockdown has led to much better per-capita cases and deaths than surrounding states and earning him the #1 poll ranking among governors. Today the yayhoos got on the local newspaper's Facebook page, praising the Confederate flag, defending Nazism as not really anti Semitic just pro-Nazi (!), flashing MAGA hats and showing photos of bullets and guns and making thinly veiled threats against the governor. They've been encouraged every day to spread their hateful madness by the lunatic president.

This is anti-American behavior. The only flag I'm flying on this Memorial Day is the U.S. flag, and these cretins are not on my side.

Sorry we're so boring, always talking about what a desperately unhinged freak we have in the midst of a national emergency. Guys, we should back off so our left-leaning political news forum doesn't bore the psychopathic president's ball-washing contingent.

FTQ means "For The Queen!" Usually used in message's boards and MMORPG's such as WoW as a war cry, when it also comes handy in any Role Play forum, today's spammers also use it as a reference to denote inactivity and boredom, applying it again as a war cry to demand more posts.

I had a lady (a nurse actually) in a bar start to go on a rant about being chipped with the COVID vaccine.

I didn't have the heart to tell her she was already "chipped" every time she picked up her iPhone.

Doesn't what President Zero is doing constitute harassment?

#37 | Posted by truthhurts at 2020-05-26 03:06 PM | Reply

#37 Yes.

DC Code 22-3133. Stalking.

(a) It is unlawful for a person to purposefully engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific individual:

(1) With the intent to cause that individual to...Suffer emotional distress;

(2) That the person knows would cause that individual reasonably to...Suffer emotional distress; or

(3) That the person should have known would cause a reasonable person in the individual's circumstances to...Suffer emotional distress.

Donald Trump should be reported to the DC police department for stalking.

I was thinking more along the line of a public official harassing a private citizen.

Apparently these posts may violate Twitter's user agreement. The widower of the woman who died asked twitter to delete the posts, they apologized but refused to remove them.

"If the flipflop fits . . ."

Hey there, I don't want no one criticizing my favorite foot wear. And I'm not making that up. I wear flip flops from the time I get home from work until the time I return to work and have done so all of my life. My daughter, in preschool, was the only child allowed to wear them because she knew how and that isn't a made up story either. I am a Florida girl and we all learned how to wear our flip flops at very young ages.
If Gracie wears flip flops good for her.
