Wait, they're serious?
 
2020-11-30 5:51:49 PM  
So, all of these Senators who maintain that they don't have time to read Donald Trump's tweets when publicly asked about them will now be familiar with the entire Twitter history of everybody in Biden's cabinet?

Republicans. Never even once

Biden needs to hire some shrinks to strategize how deal with these headcases.
 
2020-11-30 6:18:49 PM  
That's because Republican Senators are criminal treason weasels and dicks.
 
2020-11-30 6:23:55 PM  
Well, then I guess they'll just have to be 'acting' cabinet members.  They had no problem with that for Trump, so it should be fine with them.
 
2020-11-30 7:25:34 PM  
Fat Donnie's first.

This. They set the standards, now they have to live with them.

They will scream how it's hypocritical of the Democrats to ask for that for trump and now say they aren't important for these people.

The proper response is to remind the sad little idiots they are the ones that set the standard and until they are willing to abide by those standards themselves that that take their faux concern, shine it up real nice, and shove it straight up their candy asses.

How about gfy and you're getting audited as far back as your senior high school years, jack wads.

I'm sorry, my tax returns are in another castle.
 
2020-11-30 10:12:34 PM  
If the Dems agree to these terms, it sets up a legal argument for protecting Trump and GOP politicians who supported him, from prosecution.
 
2020-11-30 10:12:38 PM  
Sorry Biden's IRS is going to be busy auditing their taxes for the next eight years.
 
2020-11-30 10:12:48 PM  
Well, the democrats should have won the senate then.
 
2020-11-30 10:12:52 PM  
Biden should tell them he'll release his taxes in two weeks.
 
2020-11-30 10:13:34 PM  
What I would tell them is: "Wish in one hand - Shiat in the other.  See which one fills up quicker."
 
2020-11-30 10:13:43 PM  
Sorry, they're under audit.
 
2020-11-30 10:14:29 PM  

BizarreMan: Wait, they're serious?


Go ahead. Let them.

Not everyone is a sleazy New York Flim-flam man willing to lie his ass off to fuel his narcissism and megalomania.

/My only wish, such as it is, is that Biden doesn't pardon Trump for any of his actions while he was President.
//Well, any of his actions, come to think of it. You break the law? You pay for it.
///Screw the three slashy rule. You break it, you bought it.
 
2020-11-30 10:14:31 PM  
Don't worry, Biden knows these guys, he can work with them, they're totally sensible good people!
 
2020-11-30 10:15:50 PM  
How many "acting" members of Trump's cabinet never received confirmation?
 
2020-11-30 10:15:55 PM  
I won't be shocked if the Senate refuses to confirm any appointment by Biden, similarly I expect at least one shut down and probably a debt ceiling not being upped caused by the Senate refusal to do anything

toraque: Well, then I guess they'll just have to be 'acting' cabinet members.  They had no problem with that for Trump, so it should be fine with them.


Nah, they'll add it to the list of shiat they'll constantly be investigating and taking to the courts. Unlike the Dems they won't wait until he's way out of compliance, either, but will have everything ready to go the instant they can, and will try to press each issue home if it's got a chance rather than just kinda uselessly complaining on official letterhead.

They'll be happy to have some real things to throw in with Benghazi (you don't really think they won't try that one again, do you), 2016 election interference by the Obama Whitehouse, and all Hunter's junk-shop laptops.

Ted Cruz was a Canadian mime, and that's the shiat he admits to. The skeletons in his closet are best left locked away.
 
2020-11-30 10:17:29 PM  
 How many GOP Senators would need to fall down some elevator shafts onto a bunch of bullets before the rest of them started acting civil? I'm guessing around 50.
 
2020-11-30 10:18:15 PM  
At what point do we realize the system, as presently constructed, isn't going to help the working class and poor? As in "ever"?
 
2020-11-30 10:18:59 PM  
Disengenuous bastards.  Every one of them needs a swift kick to the nuts.  Maybe two...
 
2020-11-30 10:19:05 PM  
How about,, Fark you.

Better to hire PIs and then tell them "do your jobs as Senators of the United States of America or be arrested for treason."

Gubbo: Republicans. Never even once


Hey, "never even" is a palindrome

I think we're coming to terms with that. The next big question for the national discussion is if we actually want to do anything about it. The answer looks to be "No".
 
2020-11-30 10:20:56 PM  
Oh, if you guys thought "bbbbbut Bush/Obama!" was bad, strap in for the next four years. Every time a democrat does anything remotely wrong, everyone will point out the time(s) Trump did it and Republicans didn't care.

Lie, pander, deflect, gift, profit. It's all they are required to do.

And half of America will believe them. Mostly as a cover for their racism, homophobia, antisemitism and general shiatty nature, but they'll use anything as a fig leaf.

We will have to look outside the 2 party system. Do what we did this past summer and protest. Mobilize. Organize. Prepare. Trump pissed his pants and hid in a bunker when his fences and jimmies were rustled.

I wanna rustle a whole lot of jimmies. And we are gonna need a lot of people doing it.

The Speaker of the WI House of Reps held a press conference to say Republicans had no plan to do anything about Covid, he just wanted to have a press conference because Gov. Evers had had so many. These are terrible people.

The neoliberals and warmongers make a ton of money using your donations to hire each other. The democratic party is an incestuous ad agency. The GOP will show this and trump will run on draining the swamp again in 2024. Pretty obvious play. And as a benefit the GOP does the same stuff but way worse, so they get the unabashed hypocrisy multiplier too.
 
2020-11-30 10:23:45 PM  
I'm laughing at the sheer audacity of giving a fark about anyone's tweets. Let alone their taxes. Like this is some sort of gotcha.

Oh no, someone tweeted mean things about a man who was deliberately belligerent and antagonistic to anyone who didn't believe exactly as he did!

The tax returns request are laughable.
 
2020-11-30 10:24:10 PM  
They just need to say they file jointly with the Orange Menace and they will suddenly loose interest...
 
2020-11-30 10:25:37 PM  
2022 there will be 34 senate seats up for election.
22 are held by Republicans.

They need to be reminded of that everyday for the next two years.
 
2020-11-30 10:27:37 PM  
Apparently, GOP Senators have never heard of recess appointments.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: 2022 there will be 34 senate seats up for election.

Is that before we get help to people who need it now? Seems like 2 years is a lot of death and economic despair.

Oh they had that covered when Obama was in office. They never recessed.

No, they don't. As long as they have a Senate majority, they can be as hypocritical as they want.

If I'm willing to show them my tax returns, can I tell them all to go fark themselves via Zoom?
