Subtonic: At least it was short.


Mercifully.

VictoryCabal: Schumer looks all SOON...

Yup, a 'let me at em!' kinda glare.

toraque: "Be fearful.  Be afraid.  Be afraid of everything I say you should fear.  And I alone can save you from the things I tell you to be afraid of.  But most of all, be afraid."

The Trump speech, abridged


"The only thing we have to offer is fear itself."

Short short version.

/and quoting El Rushbo

Son, we need to talk to you about your browser history.
 
2019-01-08 09:17:29 PM  

Ow! That was my feelings!: LOL. That was it?

GL in 2020 Republicans. You will need it.


He had no choice. He was told what he was trying to pull off can't be done. And it can't.
 
2019-01-08 09:17:35 PM  
"We don't govern by temper tantrum." Boom!
 
2019-01-08 09:17:40 PM  
"We don't government by temper tantrum!"
 
2019-01-08 09:17:41 PM  
Ugh. Schumer and Pelosi are just as lame.

Get out Boomers.
 
2019-01-08 09:17:41 PM  
"We don't govern by temper tantrum"

Burn!
 
2019-01-08 09:17:41 PM  

nyneave: Haha  Pelosi is coming out swinging! Woohoo


She still won't call what Trump is saying a "lie" though. "Misinformation given with malice" is close...
 
2019-01-08 09:17:44 PM  
That's a hell of a makeup job on Nancy, she looks nothing short of a day over 60
 
2019-01-08 09:17:48 PM  

CipollinaFan: I never realized how much Chuck Schumer looks like Christopher Walken


Now that you mention it, I've never seen Schumer and Walken together....

Son, we need to talk to you about your browser history.


ah you win
 
2019-01-08 09:18:01 PM  
Oh sheeeat Chuck!  "We don't govern by temper tantrum!" LOL
 
2019-01-08 09:18:02 PM

Son, we need to talk to you about your browser history.


That got a hearty guffaw out of me.

Markoff_Cheney: thealgorerhythm: [img.fark.net image 491x588]

Yup, he is on a lot of drugs.


A LOT of drugs.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:10 PM  
Holy shiat, dude.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:19 PM  
So he pussied out?  No civil war?

/ok everybody out of the bunker

toraque: "Be fearful.  Be afraid.  Be afraid of everything I say you should fear.  And I alone can save you from the things I tell you to be afraid of.  But most of all, be afraid."

The Trump speech, abridged


That's exactly what Chuck Schumer just said in his rebuttal too. "President Trump was dealing with fear, not facts.".

that pretty much nailed it.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:24 PM  

Ape_Stone: Wait, is an option for us to use the wall money to buy drugs?  Let's do that instead.


Apparently, "making Mexico pay for the wall" now means "cutting off the flow of money from drug sales in the US down to Mexico".  So, apparently, American junkies are going to pay for the wall now.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:24 PM  
Sheepish old people argue with each other on national television, tonight on America: The Lost Cause.

/Chuck and Nancy kill it in the facts and reality department, though
 
2019-01-08 09:18:26 PM  
I love this rebuttal. I didn't watch Trump. This is great.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:31 PM  
"We don't govern through temper tantrum" HOLY FARK!!! Who lent Schumer a spine?
 
2019-01-08 09:18:32 PM  
So to sum up, the only thing we learned tonight is that the networks are willing to pre-empt their regular programming for campaign speeches.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:33 PM  
American Gothic.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:33 PM  
This whole "we all agree we need to secure our borders" is bullshiat. When did it become such a sieve that we need to be so animated about it?

The border is fine, and the problem isn't that the border is too porous, but that the immigration laws are too difficult and convoluted for those we want to immigrate and too easy for those who circumvent those rules to come into the country and stay illegally (and in some cases, to become legal through amnesty).
 
2019-01-08 09:18:37 PM  
Ok, Schumer is bringing some heat
 
2019-01-08 09:18:39 PM  
I refuse to watch it and I'm glad based on the thread.

Can we just give him the $5 billion so he'll resign already? Stipulation is he has to live in Antarctica and not come back.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:41 PM  
Ha! Go for it! Separate the shiat. Go chuck.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:47 PM  

Ow! That was my feelings!: Ugh. Schumer and Pelosi are just as lame.

Get out Boomers.


YEAH, SEND IN THE FRESHMAN CLASS WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO RESPOND!
THAT IS THE TICKET!
These are the acting heads of the party right now, deal with it.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:48 PM  

wearetheworld: Pelosi and Schumer......bwahhhhhhhhahahah.  look at those 2 losers! Take down all the walls and let everyone in because we want to be opposite of Trump.


If you get a beet for that there is no justice.

/weak

2019-01-08 09:18:51 PM  
I'm going to see those faces in my nightmares and I agree with them.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:55 PM

Son, we need to talk to you about your browser history.


FTW.
 
2019-01-08 09:18:56 PM  
So nobody is saying anything new.

This will surely change things.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:00 PM  

wearetheworld: Pelosi and Schumer......bwahhhhhhhhahahah.  look at those 2 losers! Take down all the walls and let everyone in because we want to be opposite of Trump.


But I thought you were the world
 
2019-01-08 09:19:06 PM  
WHY do you disagree with the effectiveness of the wall, Chuck?  Give us those facts you somehow missed in Trumps speech.....crickets.

The original is much better, and more esoteric.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:13 PM  

CipollinaFan: I never realized how much Chuck Schumer looks like Christopher Walken


I was thinking exactly that
 
2019-01-08 09:19:19 PM  
This is a proper response.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:23 PM  

Hong Kong Phooey: bluorangefyre: Hong Kong Phooey: Fact check by shep!

On State Media?  What'd he say?

He basically called BS on all of Trump's major points.  It was amazing


But I don't wanna turn on State Media!  Why do I need to turn on State Media?
 
2019-01-08 09:19:27 PM  
Has any other president gotten a rebuttal from the opposing party after a speech before like this? I hope it's a first
 
2019-01-08 09:19:31 PM  
You know they came up with this on the fly, while Trump read his 4th grade level Nazi speech from Miller.

Clark W Griswald: raerae1980: xanadian: raerae1980: Oh god...it BEGINS!

DRIIIIIIIINK!!!!

Im packing my bong as we speak.  My eyes are already rollin' ...lord help us.

I started vaping with shatter an hour ago. Now I'm non stop laughing at the lies.


Vaping shatter? Huh. ...  Not wax or high concentrate oil?  Why shatter?

Stiffs.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:37 PM  
So, WTF is with this $500,000,000,000 number?  Is that supposed to be the value of drugs coming over the border or the cost of the "War on Drugs" or what?  Because that is a really bigly number.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:37 PM  
Damn, Pelosi set it up, and Schumer hits it out of the park.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:43 PM  
I expected a bit more outrage from the Dem response. Even if it makes sense this will be seen as milquetoast.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:45 PM  
Hammering home the "Mexico is gonna pay for it" lie over and over again is a winner for Dems over the next two years.
 
2019-01-08 09:19:48 PM  

Markoff_Cheney: This is a proper response.


Simple but effective solutions.
