This circus freak show is so ugly

I've been going back and forth between MSNBC and CNN, on mute, reading the updates without having to listen to the idiotic commentary from talking heads. CNN posted Stormy said something, and the jury didn't laugh. MSNBC posted the same exchange, and said there was laughter in the courtroom.

This testimony and the defense bullshit is literally making me sick. The female defense attorney (supposedly) said to Stormy, "You're making this up..." Utterly sickening. And while I'm reading this disgusting garbage, the muted taking heads, all women, are smiling and joking and laughing. WTAF.

One woman guest on MSNBC was all giddy breathless school girl saying that this is the aggressiveness *rump has been waiting for from his attorneys, and she knows he's loving this...my gawd, I wanted to slap her.

I'm just venting, I know this means nothing, I just feel absolutely sick inside.

My brother is a police officer.
He experiences that in many domestic violence 911 calls. Only to be called back later over the same DV perp.

The lawyers are doing what they have to to to show just how.
The jury should get hazard pay.
The reporters are salivating about the super story.
And we all need to do something else. Myself included.

It's all salacious and watching it isn't good for anyone, except the human cannibals feasting on other people's pain and suffering.

Someone posted here earlier about North by Northwest on TCM at 8 pm (est). That's where I'll be tonight.
Thanks to whoever posted this info, too.

I need a mental health break, for sure.

I can imagine several on CNN who would do this but the MSNBC females are usually more rational. I know it wasn't Tur since she's out this week.
