She's right.

It's treason or incompetence, and "I didn't do it. No one saw me do it. You can't prove anything," doesn't really cut it.

Yes, he's been incompetent and traitorous for most of his adult life.

Sure with the media would have covered that sort of thing back in 2015 instead of going all Katy Tur Entertainment Tonight on him.

ask Trump about this at his presser.
DO IT
 
2020-07-02 11:46:55 AM  
It speaks volumes that "The intel community intentionally withheld information from the Commander In Chief about our adversary paying local militias to murder troops because he's too dumb to understand that information" is the most favorable possible explanation.

/especially since "....because he'd intentionally reveal sources and methods to our adversary, compromising them" is much closer to the truth
//"....and also because he's getting a cut of each bounty paid, and almost certainly knew about the bounties before we found out about the bounties"

Has Trump given Duckworth a lame nickname yet? He should get on that. Very important.

Ambivalence: Has Trump given Duckworth a lame nickname yet? He should get on that. Very important.


I'm surprised he hasn't done so already.

/spoiler alert: the Trump/GOP nickname for Duckworth will almost certainly include commentary along the lines of "she won't stand for our troops"

Her next post is wherever she wants it to be. She's a legend to me.

Today is another day the Republican controlled Senate has chosen not to act on these matters.

Their inaction, is tacit approval of them.
 
2020-07-02 12:24:44 PM  
Or worse: indifference.   Both.

She is right.

Tammy Duckworth is correct but I also contend it was Trump's confession of incapacity.

25A Today!

Make her VP please.
 
2020-07-02 12:29:06 PM  
She is my choice for VP. I'd be happy to see her be the first female President.

She ain't wrong ..

"So President Trump, are you lying, committing treason, or incompetent?"

/actual answer should be "All of the above"
//His answer would be to lie incompetently in a way that helps America's enemies
 
2020-07-02 12:30:22 PM  
I'm hoping to someday get to vote for her. Any office she seeks, but definitely big enough that we don't have to live in the same state.

In fairness, when he sees the word "intelligence" he's immediately triggered by his own inadequacy to ignore anything related to it, considering it an attack on him because he can't understand it.

They've already tried that one

It didn't go well
 
2020-07-02 12:33:31 PM  
All of the horrible things we were worried would happen when he got elected (and many horrible things we hadn't even contemplated) have happened, and none of the good things Trump claimed would happen have happened.

I would like to think that there'd be some apologies forthcoming, but I won't hold my breath.
 
2020-07-02 12:33:52 PM  
Wait, Trump supporters assured me that this "bounty" story has already been completely exposed as a hoax and that no one is talking about it anymore. Am I now expected to believe that they are not properly infromed?

We need someone who is going to call out these bastards.
The Democrats and the Republicans who are willing to grow a spine have got to DO SOMETHING.

What more is it going to take?

*shakes tiny fist*
I lost the time because when googling "I hate spunk" it is very important to add "Lou Grant" at the end.
 
2020-07-02 12:43:00 PM  
I think at least deep down, we all know exactly where this is going to go in the end: nowhere. Still, if there was one thing that buried this asshole, well...there's a lot of options, but this would be a really good one to impeach, convict, burn at the stake, and I don't farking know what else over.

Zevon's Evil Twin: Republicans who are willing to grow a spine


Dear, quit sucking Daddy GOP's cock.  The Republicans are not scared, they are not cowardly, or anything like that.  They are quite happy about what is happening.  And they have openly told you for at least the last 50 years.  That you keep going "but... but... Daddy GOP said he loves me in that special way and would never hurt me" is your problem.  Mitch isn't scared of Trump.  Neither is any other Republican.  Not in any way whatsoever.  They are willing, eager accomplices, every single one.  Trump is not an outlier, he is a bog-standard Republican.  They go along because he is them.  So quit hoping Daddy will save you.  Because Daddy doesn't love you.

Correction: The only fitting execution for this kind of treason would be death by firing squad. It's only fair.

Ads to that effect need to be running in every state with a Republican Senator. Especially Maine. Hang Trump around their necks like an orange albatross.
 
2020-07-02 12:56:35 PM  
Trump STILL hasn't done anything.

"I didn't know" is not even an excuse if you clearly don't care in the first place.

Though it would go far to bridge the gap. Ms. Duckworth will not throw in with joe "cornpop", he is astonishingly racist and he is also a cowardly draft dodger.

She's the junior senator from IL. Democratic governor, overwhelmingly Democratic legislature, Democratic voters.

How come "I didn't know what was expected of me " would get your ass fired at McDonald's, but is acceptable to the guy who has access to the most robust intelligence gathering services on the planet.
