I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Our law and order president.

LAW AND ORDER.

Outch,  these guys are brutal.   

Pardonning Roger Stone is not playing very well in republican circles at the moment,  the only ones celebrating seem to be the extreme Trump supporters.

I used to think that too.  But I've noticed that every time they hold him accountable for something like this then his poll numbers go up.  When the democrats aren't pushing any sort of action against him then his poll numbers steadily fall.

I think it's because these hearings distract people from noticing just how bad Trump is at this job.

It's because when you force people who voted for Trump to focus on the terrible things he does, they feel ashamed and bad about voting for him and sink deeper into denial.

It's buyers remorse, but they can't afford to feel bad about it so just double down.

Its the party lines aspect.
They have to defend their party when "attacked" by the repubs.
Also like the girls dating bad boys to piss off their parents.

Are Americans dumb enough to let this happen?

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-07-18/us-coronavirus-data-white-house-what-it-means-for-the-world/12467322

Everybody know that Trump is going to supress the data,  so from here on it shifts the narrative to whose data do you believe?

So, just like magic the pandemic is over,  everybody back to work!  Brilliant work by Trump.

Except for one tiny detail he's overlooked,  Americans aren't stupid....  Oh wait.

No, we're definitely that stupid.

I don't think trump will succeed in suppressing this data though. Our system is too decentralized and trump is too stupid to shut it down.

He will.  He just centralized everything into a new system that's likely to be full of bugs and user error.

Where I live, the government departement that is responsible for oublic health reports the numbers (from the whole country) plus every 'state' report their individual numbers. So its simultaneously centralized and decentralized and people here wouldn't even consider the option of fake numbers because that would be so incredibely ridiculous.

I could be wrong but I believe it's that way here as well.  The government has a health department.  Every state also has a health department.  Utah for example has a system for reporting cases that's completely different from most other states.  Which is why I think any attempt to suppress the data isn't going to work.  Trump would have to derail the health department of every state and get them to reflect a different reality.

I really hope this is true (and will stay true), otherwise it would just be sad for everyone living in the united states.

This isn't hard.

Trump: Hey, Republican state.  Do this with the numbers.  It'll make it look like all republican states are safe and all democrat states are plague ridden.
R-States: Yes sir Boss.

Maybe.  But that would only be the red states and not even all of them would play ball.  Along the way all of the bureaucracy in those states would resist.  Trying to force a state to fake its numbers would be incredibly noisy.  Our system just isn't designed for secrecy.  It would be like that time Trump put a bunch of immigrant kids in cages.

I wish they left in the part where Trump gets the Sanders-Biden "contract" and thumbing through it can't find anywhere where it says they want to "abolish" or "defund" the police. Real time fact checked and body slammed by Chris Wallace.
No. That sudden lurch forwards is the atmospheric slosh effect.

Nah.  Trump supporters don't listen to Chris Wallace.  Everyone knows that he's FOX's obligatory token Trump basher.  Now if someone like Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity ever decided to fact check him, that would be a different story.

I don't watch a lot of TV (on the tv), so I wonder if these ads are on TV. Like do they buy time on Fox or CNN?

So Trump has been bragging that he “aced” a cognitive test designed to see if someone has dementia as if that makes him a genius?

Amazing.

Yeah, the test is fairly simple for anyone without severe mental degredstion.  Which is why the doctors were shocked Trump passed it.  And he is bragging so hard.
