Who was the USA Olympian with mask on his chin

and constantly trying to get on camera during the Opening Ceremony last night? We just watched it and all of the team marching had their masks on properly but one guy had it down on his chin with nose and sometimes mouth exposed. He made sure to walk right next to the flag bearers and kept leaning into their space to get on camera. Seemed like a real jerk. Everyone else was doing the right thing.

Who is the woman with purple in her hair?

Talked to President Biden after the speech

Interesting article from 2013 about Cleta Mitchell

Big homophobe. Interestingly, her first husband was gay. Her second husband was convicted of five counts of felony fraud. When that happened, she was convinced the government overreached (you know, because the government should have allowed him to defraud people). She’s a Former liberal Dem who fought for the ERA, now a right wing bigot trying to help Rump kill our democracy. What a witch.

Amy Phony Barrett should be her well deserved name

Starting with telling her “feminist” stories in her opening statement and all of the other phony lies. She is a smug, entitled woman on assignment from her masters.

What did Cat (last name??) say on FAUX about Jimmy Kimmel

A friend just told me they switched over to FAUX near the end of this “beautiful” rally and some woman named Cat was apologizing like crazy and she didn’t mean what she said about Jimmy Kimmel. All of the other people on were also saying the comment wasn’t appropriate but gave the excuse that she “didn’t know the whole story”. Anyone know what this idiot said?

Start public humiliation of coward Rump for not visiting troops

All of this dissing of WWI KIA in France , not going to Arlington for Veterans Day, saying military mail in ballots should not be counted in Florida. Let’s push publicizing what a coward he is by making a big huge public stink over him not visiting those risking their lives in the military around the world.

Hey , lil mushroom......Obama went to Iraq when he was a Senator and visited there and Afghanistan several times while President. You talk so tough but are such a scared little loser!! Obama has much more courage in his pinkie finger than you will ever have!!

Why don't Dems EVER fight the false equivalencies?!!

OMG-- like Al Franken taking an admittedly inappropriate photo where he is NOT touching a woman who also has a flak jacket over her breasts and other people are around is the same as Roy Moore attacking underage girls he got alone in his car?!! Give me a break! And Dems/progressives/libs calling other Dems/progressives/libs out for not attacking him with the same vigor as they go after Moore is preposterous! It is not hypocritical at all!

And Franken doing what he thinks is the right thing by calling for an investigation. Well, now the headlines I see online are of OTHER Dems or Repugs calling for the investigation rather than saying Franken was the one who wants it.

The right wing echo chamber has hounded the mainstream media non-stop for years for being the "liberal media" and the MSM has self-censored and bent over backwards to accommodate the most wacky, propaganda filled stories in order to appear "fair".

Think of how Hillary's stupid and uneventful e-mails were constantly the headline story and spun by the MSM to be this HUGE ominous story. All the while, Putin was taking over our elections and our country and that was presented without the hysteria of HRC's e-mails. Most of the facts about tRump's cronies' and their Russian connections were known BEFORE the election but never reported as much to be concerned about. And the Dems seemed to want to hold their heads high and not sling mud (which were facts) and look where it got us.

I think back to John Kerry who took on this "above the fray" philosophy, seeming to believe that the US electorate was smart enough to realize that the service of a guy who actually put his life on the line in Vietnam shouldn't be dismissed as it was while a guy who couldn't even show up for face time within the safety of the U.S. wasn't called out much. And look where that got us! Same with Al Gore going up against the dunderhead Dumbya but always wanting to keep his cool and not really fight--again, look where that got us!

Dick Durbin is my Senator and a great guy but it drives me crazy when he seems to always have to add "both sides do it" for whatever issue that could be used to attack the Repugs when it is 90% Repugs/ 10% at most Dems doing whatever it is. But always presented as "both sides do it" like it is 50/50.

We all know there are so many other examples.

So I don't have any patience at all with Dems who want Franken to resign or point out that we should be as upset at Franken's non-physical (although sophomoric) assault as we are with pedophiles, pussy grabbers, etc.

Fight back, Dems! And don't give the media talking points or indications that these behaviors are the same. Ridiculous!!! We are our own worst enemies. Having the purists, Bernie Bros, Stein lovers do everything they could to destroy Hillary should have taught us a lesson. But I am not optimistic that we can come together to fight the right wingers trying to destroy this country.

Rant over! FIGHT!!

ABC Special (on now) "proving" false equivalency

between the right and left. At this point, ten minutes in, the focus has been more on showing violence by the alt-left rather than the right. Just like Hillary's emails were equivalent to tRump's history of racism, sexism, collusion with Russia, etc. To be very clear, I do not condone ANY violence by either side but to make it seem like it is done equally by both sides is ridiculous.

And violence by the so-called Alt-Left really pisses me off as it takes the focus off of the scum on the right. They just showed the Alt-Lefties smashing windows and torching cars in DC during the inauguration and that got a lot of media that day, "proving" the false equivalency that both sides are as guilty as the other.

Hope this changes as the show goes on.

Anyone notice the "Reagan Bush '84" shirts making a comeback?

Saw many locally over the 4th and many in Facebook photos posted. Bugs the hell out of me as I consider the "Great Communicator" as the one who set the stage for greed to be not only acceptable but the "patriotic" way to think and behave. The one who planted the seeds of hating the federal government and wanting to defund as much as possible. He set the stage for all of the greedy teabillies who have taken over and now elected Mr. Cheeto.

Seems like the Repugs want to bring back some nostalgia for their great leader to con people into focusing on Reagan and not the current idiot in the White House.
