    Wanking into a dead rabbit. It's not *technically* against leviticus, y'see.

    Whether he's removed (unlikely) or not, he and the MAGA crowd will still see it as an attack on an innocent man by the liberal elite and whatnot. That's how the political climate is right now. But sometime in the future it'll be in the history books as him being held to account by the all important checks and balances. Basically the outcome is fairly predictable but the process is important.

    'sides, if he did get removed from office he'd then be replaced by a much more competent bigot by the name of Pence. Careful what you wish for...

    Pence is a moron. He has zero social skills and uses religion as an excuse for his rampant bigotry, almost all of which is internalised self-loathing (the remainder being circumstantial/career-perpetuating; he won't have known what a transgender person was until he was briefed). The last words of his life will be "I'm sorry Mother". Whether he whimpers them in a hospital aged 93 or as he is shot by a sniper following a communion-wine fuelled rampage is yet to be seen.

    In the latest bi-weekly, 'new low' Trump scandal, he insinuates that a recently deceased and hugely locally popular Democratic congressman may be in hell, in response to his wife voting in favour of impeachment.



    I love/hate how he clearly thinks he's some edgy stand-up comic these days when in actuality he's just a prick.

    Her response is incredibly respectful. I don't think I could be the same.

    He just regurgitates words, doesn't he? Has no idea what he's saying at any time, just picks up on what the people with the cameras are saying and mashes it all together.

    <arrives at hotel room>
    "Right so Mr President we'll clean your towels if you leave them in the bath, or if you put them back on the rail we'll..."
    "TOWELS. Yes yes very important to me, I want clean towels, I want the cleanest towels, the cleanest towels, so important, clean towels. I'm a great believer in baths. And rails. The best baths and rails. Cleanest towels, absolutely. And that long word... presid... right that's me of course best president super president"

    "the only thing scarier than a far-right racist movement that denies the reality of climate change is a far-right racist movement that doesn't deny it".

    people (like naomi klein) have been ringing the alarm about the (far-)right hijacking climate change and subversing it to their agenda. it's a scarily plausible scenario.

    He’s obviously discovered there’s money to be made from it.

    i don't why i found this so shocking - i mean the man's a moron and a thug and pretty much as corrupt and greedy and delusional and generally disgusting as they come. maybe i'm just surprised at my ability to be shocked still.

    Yeah his constituency is still strongly united.

    Meanwhile, the left is still scrambling.

    Not just that. But it's much easier to unite stupid people. They need less convincing.

    It's always surprising to me that abortion is STILL an issue. I was in Mexico last autumn and one day the streets were filled with protesters of young women, men etc., and we all thought, oh it's pro-choice, and it turned out to be pro-life.

    It was mind boggling to say the least.

    Hardly worth mentioning really, as inevitable as it was, but he's going to be acquitted. The Republican-majority Senate voted to block calling any witnesses.

    It's typical of the whole piece.

    "You have no proof"
    "Actually, we have witnesses"
    "You can't call them"
    "Oh well"

    Yeah I thought it was good to start but now I wonder what’s the bloody point of tearing up stuff. If it’s just because she’s old and doesn’t give a fuck anymore then fair enough, but it’s not much of a strategy

    The point of tearing it up was to steal the headlines and it worked. No-one is talking about his actual speech, except to decry it as a work of outright fiction.
