So Trump fans are sticking with, “Trump never slept with these women but they were paid by his lawyer without any input from Trump and US prosecutors are lying”. Sounds about par for the course.

When you have dozens of managers quitting a company and ripping the CEO, then maybe, just maybe, the problem is the CEO.

Posted in: New York Times: Trump resort hired undocumented workers See in context

Trump has always put foreigners ahead of Americans if it saves him a buck.

Who is going to stop him? His base? LOL. Trump could double his foreign workfoce and they wouldn't say a peep.

That's what defines them as Trump supporters.

Illegals will work for cheaper wages than legal Americans. People like Trump will always look to use them if he can’t export those jobs to China.

The FBI has said that if they find any credible accusations against Democrats, they will investigate. They said the same thing about Clinton. And the recent election results. And ..

The issue is that there are no credible accusations. It's all just self-serving, unsupported stories by Trump and his fans.

Nah, the only ones making accusations about improper actions are Trump, his fans, and some Republicans. That would be me like saying, "Clinton, Huffington Post, and I say Clinton is innocent, the DOJ is corrupt, and the president should pardon her." I'm guessing you wouldn't put much stock into that.

Besides, if there was any evidence of improper action the investigation would have been stopped a long time ago.

Looks like Trump fans have mostly given up on the thought that any of these people are innocent and are putting all of their eggs into the pardon basket. I suppose it's all they have left.

Serrano:. What are all the Russian collusion brainwashed masses going to do when Mueller finally admits finding no evidence of Trump colluding during the election?

Probably move on the the other list of crimes.

It's actually a win-win for us. I'll be there grinning that Trump's circle will be in orange jumpsuits, and you'll be there grinning that collusion wasn't the reason they are in jail.

We both get what we want.

This story about Mueller is fake news. It was debunked by the actual judge who presided over the case who said Mueller wasn't part of the situation in any way, shape, or form.

Despite that, Trump fans are still going around trying to spread it. I doubt they really care if it's true or not anyway. Anything to save the deal leader...

Posted in: Trump says if no China trade deal possible, 'I am a Tariff Man' See in context

"It doesn’t seem like anything was actually agreed to at the dinner and White House officials are contorting themselves into pretzels to reconcile Trump’s tweets (which seem if not completely fabricated then grossly exaggerated) with reality," JPMorgan Chase said in a trading note.

This is a thing. Trump says something, and his people and the right-wing media do their best to shape a reality where Trump was right or made sense. Think, "alternative facts."

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton told the Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that Chinese theft of U.S. intellectual property was among the administration's top concerns.

This should be our primary concern IMHO, and full disclosure, I'm not an expert. This is a structural issue that bleeds money via theft. China buying more or less doesn't change that and I've heard little in terms of proposals on how things can or will change. That worries me.

There are tons of allies out there who feel the same way. Trump needs to separate this issue and build a coalition. The part that sucks is that he isn't capable of doing that.

Posted in: 'Zero' doubt Saudi crown prince directed Khashoggi murder: GOP senators See in context

It deserves a stronger response than Trump getting up in front of the cameras and pretending to be stupid. He promised a tough response if the evidence was there and then gets up and gives his, "Golly, I'm not convinced" act. Save it for your spineless base; don't talk to everyone else like we are stupid or afraid of speaking out.

Countries have friction all the time, even with allies. A response is warranted. Trump should stay on the sidelines and let Congress take the lead if he doesn't have the guts.

Let him continue on Twitter, don’t build the wall, and get his taxes anyway.

Im surprised Trump fans are still going after the wall. It’s obvious Trump can’t deliver.

Chip Star: You forgot the part about having a rich mommy or daddy. Then again, your tirade doesn't hold up if you admit being a rich kid gives you an enormous advantage and negates the part about the person working the hardest.

Sure, his parents might have been rich, but thy gave him nothing and everything he has is due to his own hard work. His parents didn’t believe in handouts. He got a lot less than his lower middle class friends which gave him the work ethic he has today,

Just assuming here. It makes for a better American story.

bass, can you confirm that this was the case?

Posted in: Sanders eyes 'bigger' 2020 bid despite some warning signs See in context

Joe Blow: He appeals to millennials who don’t understand economics, and old Birkenstocks-with-socks latte-sipping Volvo-driving unbearable hippies.

He doesn't propose radical ideas, he brings attention to things. One exception would be the minimum wage, but other than that he often doesn't have a specific plan to combat a lot of problems he talks about, which is why I never fully supported him.

He's saying these are problems and we need to act, for example, from his Facebook feed:

"We have got to stand up to the greedy fossil fuel industry and transform our current energy system into a more sustainable, efficient one. Let's envision a world that works for our children and grandchildren, not a handful of billionaires."

Is that some radical socialism?

"UN officials have called the situation in Yemen the “largest food security crisis in the world.” Let us bring an end to this catastrophic war and join the rest of the world in delivering the humanitarian assistance that is so desperately needed."

Again, nothing really radical about that. Everyone would support it.

"The function of a rational health care system is to provide quality care to all in a cost effective way. We cannot move forward with a system in which insurance and drug companies make hundreds of billions of dollars in profits each year while working people are financially decimated by medical expenses. It is time to make affordable access to health care a right for every man, woman, and child in America."

And again...no radical policy.

jcapan: I know those who have studied at the feet of Glenn Beck and company struggle with the dialectical method, but what Bernie has been advocating over his entire career has almost nothing to do with Marxism:

The right-wing has done a good job of completely sealing off any of Bernie's messages from reaching their base. Mention his name and they immediately plug their ears and yell "Socialist!" and that's that.

It's a shame since his support of the working class is something that working class Republicans could rally around. I used to tease Trump fans during the election that half of what they were saying sounded like it came from Bernie's website. I don't think they believed me or even really got it. Point out the fact that Bernie brings attention to things like flat worker pay and before you're done with your sentence it's "SOCIALIST! (fingers in ears)." In reality he's talking about things that are important to the working class while the GOP are handing out tax cuts to the rich.

Ocasio-Cortez is in the same boat. Fox has her on the front page 3 days a week with dire predictions of how she is a socialist who will destroy the country.
