You know the other Republicans will go for the jugular on all his corruption and idiotic statements. He didn't have a record back in 2015/16 when running for the GOP nomination but he does now and when fellow Republicans start hitting him with this stuff, I think they may take him down because he will freak out and just implode like he did with Biden but maybe even worse. All this pro-Russian stuff is going to be brought up relentlessly for one thing plus Jan 6th.
Or will the GOP not allow anyone to run against him?
As one of the commenters said. He was "Standing his ground" in Florida. Guess that law only applies to white folks.
Here is the local news on this: https://miami.cbslocal.com/2022/03/28/raymond-rachal-fort-lauderdale-best-western-hotel-employee-arrest/
would be kind of a cool thing? Demi Moore was beautiful in the part, she was strong, and it was about the first woman to undergo special operations training similar to the U.S. Navy SEALs. I think these are all positive things. It's interesting how so many see the comparison as negative, however I can see if Jada was struggling with some self image problems how it might have landed the wrong way and I don't remember if there was some bad audience reaction to that Demi Moore part or something?
The more I hear about John Wayne the more I detest him.
John Wayne Tried To Assault The Native American Woman That Declined Marlon Brandos Oscar Award In 1973

When Marlon Brando won his second Academy Award in 1973, he famously did not accept it himself. Sacheen Littlefeather accepted it on his behalf and spoke about the poor treatment of Native Americans. What many do not know is John Wayne took this personally and assaulted her afterward. Heres what went down.
The 1973 Academy Awards
If ever there was a shoo-in for Best Actor, Brandos iconic performance in The Godfather would be it. As if to shore up his chances of winning, Al Pacino was relegated to a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his role in The Godfather. If you believe Burt Reynolds, Deliverance would have won Best Picture had he not posed nude for Cosmopolitan. He may have a point, but The Godfather was and is a legend in its time and since.
Pacino chose to boycott the ceremony over perceived category fraud. Brando, too, decided to protest but for more noble reasons. When his name was read out, 26-year-old Sacheen Littlefeather accepted his Oscar trophy in his stead. Brando was sympathetic to her and the Native American plight and gave her a 15-page speech to read. Since Littlefeather was told shes only had 60 seconds, she had to improvise.
These days, political speeches at the Academy Awards are fairly commonplace, but that was not the case in 1973. Littlefeather made history that night, She said her name, and that she was the Apache President of the National Native American Affirmative Image Committee. She said of Brando that he very regretfully cannot accept this very generous award. And the reasons for this being are the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry.
Littlefeather continued, after a smattering of boos and applause, I beg at this time that I have not intruded upon this evening, and that we will in the future, our hearts and our understandings will meet with love and generosity. Thank you on behalf of Marlon Brando. She read the full speech, written by Brando, to the press after the ceremony.
