Just flashed on MSNBC.
I've seen too many threads and comments that not only excuse Donald Trump's disgusting, misogynistic comments toward Hillary, but also calls for HER to apologize to Him for a factual statement she made about ISIS. I came here in 2008 thinking it was a place for Democrats and maybe it will be again some day. But for now I'm gone.
For Trump who comments often on Clintons penchant for pantsuits, has insinuated she is in a lesbian relationship with close aide Huma Abedin, and insists she doesnt have the strength or the stamina to be president Mondays remarks take his focus on her personal life to a new level of intimacy.
Remarking on Clintons late return to the podium after using the bathroom during a commercial break at this weekends Democratic debate, Trump said, I know where she went. Its disgusting. I dont want to talk about it. Its disgusting.
Trump also took a shot at Clinton for losing the Democratic nomination to Obama in 2008. She was favored to win and she got schlonged, he said. She lost. I mean, she lost.
At one point, Trump contemplated the possibility that Clinton would become the next president and slapped his palms on his head in mock exasperation. Is that a president? he said. You saw her the other day, in all fairnes
A few months before Democrats swept the 2006 elections, an outcry raged in the fringier corners of the immigration debate. Treasonous American officials were tipping off the Mexican government about the whereabouts of Minutemen patrols, the argument went, making it impossible for the private army bent on preventing undocumented immigrants from crossing the border to do their jobs.
The outcry made it to Congress, where Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston, a Republican, introduced an amendment clearly directed at the Minutemen story. The amendment barred the Department of Homeland Security from providing a foreign government information relating to the activities of an organized volunteer civilian action group, operating in the State of California, Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona.
Kingstons amendment overwhelmingly passed the Republican-controlled Congress, including the votes of 76 Democrats, most of them from the partys then-strong Blue Dog conservative wing. Another person voted for the measure, too: Rep. Bernie Sanders, an independent in the midst of the campaign that would send him the U.S. Senate.
The Minutemen have long since faded from the the national conversation and from memory in an interview with BuzzFeed News, Kingston had to dig deep to remember the specifics of the vote, and other prominent Republican Minuteman supporters of the time didnt recall it at all but fears that the federal government is undermining efforts by local authorities to fight illegal immigration continue.
Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton will not apologize to Donald Trump for saying that his comments disparaging Muslims were being used in ISIS videos to recruit terrorists.
"Hell no. Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists," Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said Monday afternoon.
Earlier Monday, Trump demanded that Clinton apologize to him for her comment.
"I will demand an apology from Hillary," Trump said Monday on NBC's "The Today Show." "I will demand an apology from Hillary, she should apologize. She lies about emails, she lies about Whitewater, she lies about everything. She will be a disaster as President of the United States."
Clinton made the claim during Saturday night's Democratic debate, but a spokeswoman later said they did not have a specific video of ISIS using clips of Trump disparaging Muslims, but instead pointed to social media comments from ISIS recruiters. CNN's Reality Check Team also found there was nothing to support Clinton's claim of an ISIS video showing Trump.
Anyone have conspiracy theories they'd like to share? I'm sure there are more than a few.
I was expecting Bernie to be as confrontational as his campaign staff over the data breach and, once again, he proved himself to be a much bigger and better man than those around him. And those people, I think, just see him as a vehicle to "stick it to the establishment" (especially Jeff Weaver) and use it as a justification to do whatever they want. And he is severely ill-served by them. Good show, Senator.
1. I held my breath when "A Long, Long Time Ago" came across the screen and nearly jumped for joy when the title music began.
2. I unexpectedly teared up when Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford looked into each other's eyes for the first time in years.
3. Daisy Ridley, John Bodega and Oscar Isaac have very strong careers ahead of them.
4. Kylo Ren felt kind of weak next to Darth Vader, and perhaps that was by design.
5. The mischief-maker in me would have allowed the Star Killer base to get that last shot off before exploding, thus wiping the slate clean for the new generation of heroes.
6. Luke's lightsaber making its way to Maz could be a movie in and of itself.
7. But the show stealer for me was Poe and his Poe Dameon's Blue Squadron.
8. I'm counting the days until 'Rogue Squadron'.
As one of only two Independent senators, Bernie as to decide which party he is going to sit with, and that party determines his committee assignment. If he were to decide scorch the Earth in 2016 and hand the White House to Republicans, he might as well resign from the Senate or join the GOP Conference because he would be persona non grata among Senate Dems.
Its a clever tactic. Turning yourself into the victim when you committed the crime. But its also a dirty tactic because it impugns Hillarys integrity by saying shes involved in a conspiracy theory with the DNC.
However, the premise of this conspiracy theory relies on Hillary needing to have the Sanders campaign stripped of its data to win. Hillary is up 30-points nationwide, up in Iowa, will dominate Super Tuesday, and will win most of the superdelegates. So why would Debbie feed right into the Hillary-DNC conspiracy theory with Hillary in such high standing?
Ironically, Bernie Sanders is hailed as some sort of political saint. Yet as of late, he has been employing some questionable tactics against Hillary.
After declaring Americans are sick and tired of Hillarys e-mails, Bernie is now bringing up the FBI investigation again [even though the FBI is investigating the security of the server; Hillary is NOT under direct FBI investigation]. Invoking FBI is an intentional and systematic way to brainwash voters against Hillary Clinton. Bernie is [yet again] doing the job of the Koch Brothers by attacking Hillary over her e-mails.
The Republicans have been employing similar smear tactic against Hillarys integrity for years, successfully brainwashing a huge segment of our population to be Hillary-hating sheep. The right-wing must love watching their strategy work even more effectively on the left, hoping Bernie can achieve Nader-like status and ruin all of Obama's progress.
Point is Bernies campaign is not staying true to Bernies word when he fundraises by impugning Hillarys integrity with a conspiracy theory. Its an unfortunate development for him and his many supporters that seem to think Hillary is a demon. Yall are in some weird company with the Republicans on that one.
