She definitely puts a spanner in the works of Trump trying to claim Biden is against law and order.
 
2020-08-12 1:46:40 PM  
Yeah, this is what I've been saying. The whole 'but she's a cop!' only works in attacking her from the Left. The Right can't simultaneously revere and venerate all things 'cop' then turn around and say being a cop is a bad thing.

Well, I mean, they will, of course, but still...
 
2020-08-12 1:48:40 PM  
This really is a well-thrown curveball to an administration that's heavily banking on its last-ditch rebranding as a force for "law and order."
 
2020-08-12 1:50:40 PM  
I would imagine she has a pretty good idea as to how to attack Team Trump.
 
2020-08-12 1:53:16 PM  
Team Trump is having a hard time how to tie their shoes too.

Jack Sabbath: She definitely puts a spanner in the works of Trump trying to claim Biden is against law and order.


Not really.  If you haven't noticed, consistency is not really a feature of their strategy.  It's more of a throw everything against the wall and see what sticks strategy.

As a former District Attorney, I'm pretty sure she has a good idea how to Prosecute team Trump.

They'll keep saying her name as, ka-MAH-la, cuz that sounds very Muslimy.

That's ok, because I'll continue say his name as Doh-nad, because it sounds like gonad.

Trump will resort to some alliteration and his base will think it's the best thing ever.
 
2020-08-12 2:14:15 PM  
There is so much material for him to use when attacking her.. just give him time.. he will go to new lows of crudeness.
 
2020-08-12 2:15:23 PM  
Olive cop?

The people who enforce the appellation contrôllée regulations for kalamatas?
 
2020-08-12 2:15:47 PM  
Team Trump is not having trouble determining how best to attack Kamala Harris.

Team Trump is just still evaluating which of several already pre-planned angles of attack on Kamala Harris will best resonate with their base.
 
2020-08-12 2:15:50 PM  
"nasty". That's it. That's all he's got.
 
2020-08-12 2:16:09 PM  
Wait.. if Kamala is a cop then don't blue lives matter anymore to Donald?
 
2020-08-12 2:17:40 PM  
Kamala DEVI Harris.

That's, like, one letter short of "devil."

/Study it out!!!
 
2020-08-12 2:17:49 PM  

Destructor: "nasty". That's it. That's all he's got.


Didn't he call her a "liar" too?

Even in his arsenal of insults to use, that was pretty low energy.

2020-08-12 2:18:36 PM  
Yeah I had to laugh a bit when Trump went with "she's a big meanie!".
 
2020-08-12 2:18:41 PM  
When Trump cries "Law & Order", he means "attack & prosecute my enemies" and "defend my ass".
 
2020-08-12 2:19:53 PM  
They will deliberately and consistently mispronounce her name to make it sound more "foreign".

That, and she slept her way to the top so on r/conservative there's a lot of memes implying she's sucking Biden's dick. Oh it's just peachy and hilarious, right?

Being called a "liar" by Trump is almost a badge of honor. It's like saying, "You clash with my world view. My world view is me."
 
2020-08-12 2:20:45 PM  
Don't you get it? Libs hate the cops just like they hate guns, the Holy Bible, and the US flag.

So pointing out that Biden's VP pick is a cop is, like, major ownage.

Sorry, but Republicans know us libs far better than we know ourselves.
 
2020-08-12 2:21:13 PM  
lol and it's not like she was going to be one of -- if not the most -- obvious choice.

And all he's got despite that is, "very nasty, yugest liberal".  SAD!

It doesn't matter what they say about her. Everyone has picked a side. This election is about turnout. Democrats outnumber Republicans, and have for *decades*, but Democrats don't vote.

Trump has motivated them to *finally* get off their (our - I'm a Democrat that didn't vote until 2008) asses.

The only way the Republicans can win is by cheating, and unfortunately, they're good at it. This whole mess with the USPS is just beginning. I expect by November, Trump and his allies will have figured out a way to prevent mail-in votes from being counted, if not preventing mail-in voting PERIOD.

If Trump wins, we'll be on the edge of another civil war. Close than we've been since the *actual* American Civil War.

Yep.  They are just throwing shiat against the wall to see what sticks.  Once that is determined off they will go.

"Trojan horse for the radical left" seems to be where they've landed.

Then something about AOC and no more hamburgers.  I don't know.  You go follow this stuff; I can't.

I verified with my local Board of Elections - they'll take absentee ballots sent to them via FedEx or UPS.

There's ALWAYS a work-around, people.

Likely nothing will stick. Nothing has stuck to Biden either

Why do these Never Trumpers keep attacking President Donald Trump when they're just going to vote for him again anyways, according to the always nuanced and enlightened Politics Tab? I refuse to believe that many of you are unfamiliar with the world outside of your little bubbles, that just can't be the case.

Oh, but they *will* continue slamming her for being an authoritarian cop who's hellbent on putting young black men in prison (such concern from them on this!!), while at the same time claiming she's a far-left socialist hippie who wants your kids to do drugs.

Also, just wait for the seekret muslin talk to start due to her skin shade.
 
2020-08-12 2:29:47 PM  
They don't have to "figure anything out."  They're throwing everything including the silverware into the cannons for a non-stop broadside.  None of it has to make any sense as long as something sticks; I said it elsewhewre, but the talking points will be literally everything and anything.  Biden Harris are simultaneously fascist capitalists and communist anarchists.  Why not?

Well, the traditional approach is to pay people to pretend to be left wingers who encourage Democrats to vote third party because the party candidates are JUST like the Republicans who throw kids in cages, encourage cops to tear gas protesters and believe that covid-19 is just a hoax.

You don't need to pay them, the "she's a cop" brigade will stupid up a discussion with that for free.
 
2020-08-12 2:37:56 PM  
The obvious thing to do would be not to attack her, but to use her own words in the Democratic debates to attack Biden.
 
2020-08-12 2:38:56 PM  
Her approval among Republicans is around 21%, which bodes well for tight races.  Not all (R) think Law & Order means sending in paramilitary thugs to bash heads.  It doesn't take much to swing several states and if she brings 2% of the Republicans over...

Reminds me of what Henry Louis Gates once wrote about Hillary Clinton:

"In the course of a single conversation, I have been assured that Hillary is cunning and manipulative but also crass, clueless, and stunningly impolitic; that she is a hopelessly woolly-headed do-gooder and, at heart, a hardball litigator; that she is a base opportunist and a zealot convinced that God is on her side. What emerges is a cultural inventory of villainy rather than a plausible depiction of an actual person."

Rush Limbaugh would have been making "stump" jokes in less than 24 hours and the resulting outrage over those comments would be celebrated by his listeners as El Rushbo owning the libs.

There's alot to appreciate in that perspective......but it would have been sad to watch them do the inevitable - many thought his mockery of that NYT journalist, with that hand gesture at his rally would hurt him, but....Trump & Co. are completely shameless

I read a way too long story at breitbart about Gettysburg and how it was both sides good and the comments... whew! It would have put L. Ron Hubbard to shame.

Of course this would be *his* Gettysburg address.

Oh, don't worry, they'll get it down.  And it will probably make "Sleepy Joe" look like a compliment.

(a) Trump could be handed a tennis racquet and he'd miss a beach ball sitting on a tee
(b) The corrupt media will stop at absolutely nothing to pretend that Trump and Biden are equally legitimate and viable candidates to play baseball

Resolving which will win requires careful examination of subtracting two infinities.

The birthers made up all sorts of new laws when Obama was President. One of them was that you're only a natural born citizen if both of your parents are natural born citizens.
 
2020-08-12 3:28:40 PM  
They're riffing right now. Nasty woman. Birther bullsh*t. One of those egghead lawyers who used her power to *gasp* prosecute criminals. None too subtle odes to mispronouncing her name. It's a grab bag, but it's ALL fairly salty, because they all know that she's going to chew up Pence and spit out the bones.
