    I'm getting flashbacks to when my GRANDAD started displaying EARLY DEMENTIA SYMPTOMS.

    I don’t know where to post this as we don’t have a thread for queen AOC, but what a WOMAN! Here’s her response to being called a fucking bitch by republican Ted Yoho

    That's...incredible.

    I disagree with a lot of her policies, but she is so methodical and so direct that I don't even care.

    I would love to see her become a supreme court justice. She has such an excellent temperament for it.

    Ugh, she's relentlessly incredible. If only we had more politicians like her.

    He’s pretty much summed up his entire presidency in that last sentence.

    The fact that the most powerful man in the world spells ‘so’ with more than one o sends chills down my spine. He’s leading a super power yet it reads more like he’s endorsing Juice Plus.

    I really can't wait for a professional politician to take over. Although the suspect 'The Biden Years' won't quite be the same thrill ride as this.

    It’ll be like when a new producer takes over on Hollyoaks and wants to have more family oriented storylines as opposed to titty students being blown up at funfairs. Yes, a lot more competent and credible, but where’s the bawdy entertainment?

    I remember them adding that disclosure at the end of an episode where teenagers drove a minibus through an orangery during a wedding, and one of them was killed when some burning metal was shot into the air and landed on top of them. I bet the hotline was FLOODED.

    The Republican Senator from Georgia unveiled a campaign ad enlarging the nose of his Democratic rival who is, of course, Jewish. It's almost as if these people believe they will in fact drop dead if they don't do or say something terrible every single day of their lives.

    Trump is going to ban TikTok in the US because of it’s links to China (pretty sure that Tulsa rally will also have something to do with it). An executive order could be signed off as early as today.

    Surely shutting down a platform used by 80 million Americans will backfire on him?

    Who knows what’s possible these days. It will surely face a legal challenge.

    Who saw Tik Tok, arguably the most wholesome of the apps these days, having to move to the dark web because that big fat baby got his feelings hurt?

    It won't make a difference because Microsoft is in talks to buy Tik Tok.

    Obviously, it is terrifying, but I also got really distracted by the way this was filmed and edited. It feels almost exactly like Veep. Except with less humour and more deaths.

    What’s annoying is that Trump is falling apart so badly that Sanders would probably have walked the election at this point.
