Or any other city, or any other Wendys, or any other car, or any other day, or any other cop.

Yup a few things came together that time, so it's time to try to correct the easiest one, the bad cop

In the grander scheme of things, Trump's exceedingly clumsy and corruption reeking attempt to oust a US Attorney for doing nothing but minding his job, is perhaps the biggest single piece of evidence anybody would need to gauge the current administration. I wouldn't be surprised if this happened in one of the sh1thole countries, as Trump called them, but to see it happen in the US?

It's a sick, sick nation, currently governed by a corrupt bunch of incompetent and dangerously stupid cadre of misogynists.

This is making the rounds.
Apparently from a PBS special.

A bit of a Godwin, yeah. I am wondering if 'defund' is a generous translation, or an accurate one, for what the Interior Minister did.

@SMT: the thing with the judge hit the news here. Nothing subtle about this, and the response was to me quite interesting. From the judge in question. Roughly this:
"I heard from the news that I am stepping down. I am not. I remain on the bench and will do so until a replacement is appointed and confirmed."

which is how it normally works.

So why did the US Attorney in NY not understand the concept that "he serves at the pleasure of the President", considering that previously Preet Bharara suffered the same outcome for a similar refusal to clean out his desk?

Keep in mind, my Euro pals, that ALL US Attorneys kowtow to the president, and when there is a new one they are all asked to resign.

They certainly are the most transparent administration in history, doing all their obstruction of justice plays in broad fcking daylight and contradicting each other in real time. Bigly brains all around.



It's obvious what is happening. They are terrified of what Berman is investigating. leading Barr to lie, twice.

Wait, wait, wait, has trump done the obligatory nasty name calling and the reflections on how he was really bad from the very beginning and how it's all
- insert name(s) - fault.

Despite all your outrage, Berman will not be coming to work on Monday. Sorry.

Ha ha ha. Despite issuing 1,000,000 tickets (or claiming to) Trump couldn't even fill a 19,000 seat arena. It looks like the entire upper tier is empty and the 'overflow' speech to all those who couldn't get in (there were none) has been canceled.

This is great! The one thing Trump can't stand is to be ignored. Get ready for excuses in 3, 2, 1..............

Edited to add: And yeah, ob, I really don't like this guy and really, really want him to lose the election.

In other news, attendance at Biden's latest rally rose to one, with the news that Democrats would at last count his dog.

Fake news as to be expected from a rabid Trump supporter.

The idiot just said "slow down the testing". Testing is done to find infected people and get an idea of the total spread of the virus. Again he is putting his agenda over the wellbeing of the people of the USA. Is this what you are expecting from your President ob?

It's not the reading that impairs, it's the trying to understand that does the damage.

When you have a reporter at the rally in the forefront of the picture and hear the madman foaming in the background it reminds me of clips I've seen from two madmen of the Third Reich.

I am impresed, though, that so many of you "over there" stayed up so late to watch this.
