If the Dems are smart, they'll ignore the Trump angle and focus on the other crap. But they won't. Neither will the media. It's 2016 all over again.

I know nothing about Strange but I prefer anyone over Roy farking Moore.

Not those polls.

How to tell if Trump is lying: his lips are moving, his fingers are moving, basically if he's alive he's lying.
 
2017-09-26 10:10:15 AM  
Trump said something untruthful? Teh hell you say!

Moore's the bigger bigot but Trump supports Strange.

Whoever Trump might endorse

might not be the winning horse

.

It isn't particularly complicated

It's just that Trump is universally hated

.

It's inconceivable that a man with the morals of a goat

cannot get people out to vote

.

That's why they are trying to arrange

that Trump retract his endorsement of Luther Strange

.

Says who?

If Trump told me it was daytime, I'd be inclined to look outside to be sure. He lies when the truth would do. How can any world leader trust anything that comes out of his mouth...
Worse than useless.

I'm starting to think all Trump cares about is Trump, and he also seems to lie all the time.

A state that elects a man to the Senate who believes that his interpretation of the bible is superior to the laws of the United States of America, is one farkin dumbazz state.

Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore leads Strange by approximately 11 points in that poll, which was released on election eve.

How much was Moore leading before Trump's endorsement? Maybe he really did shoot up after that? Was he behind by like 90 points before?

Oh wait, never mind.

But will he give me up?

I'm kind of undecided. I think it's important to give the guy a chance.

The only difference between them  is bragging rights for one gang of hoodlums or another. Moore seems to me to be obviously insane, but their votes in all possible universes would be identical.

Trump is actually the best kind of correct here.  He first endorsed Strange in early August, and since then both Strange and Moore have jumped up in the polls -- by defeating the third candidate Mo Brooks in the first Republican primary.

It doesn't appear that Trump's endorsement had much to do with it, though.

Okay, so Trump can't get Strange elected, but he did get Dallas fans to boo their own team, and, really, which do you think means more to Trump. You know, because Trump is a jerk.

He's no worse than Jim Inhofe, so I can't say much to Alabama voters.

Go full derp if you want.  Maybe it'll help non-voters get a clue for an election cycle or two.

Also I listened to this after I found out that today the GOP shelved their repeal bill:

That Moore is a viable candidate AT ALL in the state of Alabama is a vicious self-indictment by the voters. Anyone with an ounce of sense should know Moore has no business running a farking lemonade stand, nevermind be a farking senator. And the voters of Alabama have already put that dickhead back on their state supreme court after he already got booted off it once for flagrant disregard for the law.

A chief justice of a farking court with a disdain for the law and he's a leading candidate for Senator?

I mean, for fark's sake Alabama, get your shiat together. Just get it all together and put it in a back pack, all your shiat, so it's together. And if you gotta take it some where, take it somewhere, you know, take it to the shiat store and sell it, or put it in the shiat museum. I don't care what you do, you just gotta get it together.

GET YOUR SHIAT TOGETHER.

So will Obama, but from the other end.

"Right after Barack Obama became the first black President of the US, a plurality of adults lost all ability to reason, and a group of bigoted conmen saw an opportunity to make a ton of money and gain power through the use of burgeoning and largely unregulated social media..."

In the first round, Moore finished 6.1% ahead of Strange (39.9% to 32.8%).

The latest poll has Moore up by 11 points.

Granted, the final results could end up different from the latest poll, but as of now, Strange has lost ground since the first round.

Moore, a former state Supreme Court justice, had 56 percent of the vote to Strange's 44 percent with about two-thirds of the vote counted. [I guess that's a big jump from 32.8% in the first round...]

/Granted, I'm not a fan of either of the Republican candidates, and I'm not confident in the possibility that the Democratic candidate can win in the special election.

So Trump's such an infant he just deleted this tweet, and three others promoting Strange, after Moore won.

I can see how it went down...

Scene 1 ---

Strange is in his office doing what candidates do..
<phone rings>
Caller:"Hey Luther, it's me Donny.  Im going to endorse you for your lil election you got goin on down there...."
Strange:"Uh, Thank you sir..."
<hangs up phone>
Strange (to all his associates in the room):" That's the end of that,  Pack it up boys, we just lost..."

I don't know much about Twitter. All I know comes from here but it seems like you shouldn't be able to delete your tweets (unintentional rhyme). You can't delete what you actually say in real life, much to Trump's chagrin.

For nearly everyone else, you are correct. But for the President of the United States, his tweets are considered an official communication of the Government, and must be preserved. Deleting them is technically a crime.
