    And then Trump contradicted that by tweeting that it was about the "fake news". Can't even get everyone's story straight on team Trump! Also saw this time Stephen Miller went to another Mexican restaurant and got heckled, which makes me wonder what is the motivation? Is it really that shallow as trolling the media, or a distraction from other things going on. Just the idea that it is coming from people in that position is kind of mind-boggling that they are in the "highest office in the land" and able to influence people's lives like they are doing.

    They're currently working on slashing trillions from health programs in order to fund the tax cut that billionaires got a little while back...so yeah, whether intentional or not, I'm sure they're happy to have us not lining up to protest that.

    She didn’t wear it in Texas.
    The fact that you all believe she did just adds support to the “fake news” angle that Trump bangs on constantly. This is magic trolling of the gullible.

    Yeah, now it’ll be like the Obama years!

    But hey, since you are currently capable of being critical of your own government now that a non-Dem is POTUS, let’s not miss this opportunity. You should look into the US Prison system and CPS. Talk about fucking up children and their families...

    Here’s a map of the highs yesterday, the first day of summer. I’m sure it was cool and breezy where ever she was wearing the jacket for her photo ops.

    the jacket is distasteful and disrespectful in any state. But, sure nitpick my not knowing where she was wearing it originally.

    EDT 2: where did she wear it then? Everything I’ve read says it was boarding her flight to and from. So when she left Texas, she wasn’t wearing it according to your not fake news sources?

    made the mistake of posting a semi tongue in cheek posting on face book about not celebrating the 4th because This administrations actions were "nu-American which prompted the trump supporters trolls to flame me with hate such as commie, i should be sent to Mexico. I wonder how long it will take before he finds out he has been logged out and he's pass word changed

    this recent 180 from Michael Cohen appearing with Tom Arnold on Twitter is surprising... and sort of confusing. At the very least, he doesn't seem to be denying that he's working with Arnold to help out with his expose on Trump.

    Forgive me, but honestly this entire fucking circus just needs to stop. Tom Arnold is not a pillar of journalistic integrity.

    Nothing makes any goddamn sense anymore. I guess that's the point though. If your mind can be stressed by non-sense continually, you'll have to tune it out just to keep sane.

    I was married to a narcissist, she used to do the same thing. Barrages of bullshit and things that don't make sense so that you had no choice but to ignore the ridiculous things that were being said if you wanted any chance to stay sane. You couldn't argue or fight back, because every time you do, they just say or do something even stupider.

    Endurance is hard with this level of bullshit happening. But Tom Arnold as our saviour? Come on......

    Yep, it's pretty fucking ridiculous, but we live in ridiculous times. We're going to look back at this travesty, and maybe realize that if only the Democrats had tried running Carrottop instead of someone with legitimate political experience, maybe they could have won. Nothing makes sense anymore.

    Still, the communique between Michael Cohen and Tom Arnold is bizarre, and would seem to imply that Cohen is pretty much advertising his willingness to flip on Donald.

    From where I sit, anybody making meaningful efforts to take Trump down is worth taking seriously. I think Arnold's aim is to do just that, and if doing so in the most flashy way possible is how he chooses to do it, so be it. We can't pick and choose who the "savior" is going to be, it's just got to happen first. Then we can complain.

    thing is, if Trump supporters can plug their ears and discredit legitimate news outlets, I don't think they're going to have that hard of a time doing the same thing with Arnold, even if he somehow does have all these recordings.

    Speaking of that, why is he SITTING on the fucking recordings?! If he REALLY does have a recording of Trump saying the N and C words backstage on Celebrity Apprentice, what's he waiting for?!

    I'm pretty sure his base sees that as a positive though.

    I think his true prize is the piss tape, and allegedly footage of him assaulting Melania in an elevator.

    Maybe this is what the latest stunts have been to distract us from reading via twitter: "plan for complete reorganization of the entire federal government" taken from a whitehouse.gov page

    He does claim to have the piss tape doesn't he? He was saying that this is going live in the fall... maybe he's planning to time it in the lead up to the November election? Who knows... but it's strange to claim you have something like that and not provide even a teaser snapshot. Then again, it'd be weirder for him to claim he has it and then show up empty-handed.

    Additionally, if the tape originally was created by Vladimir Putin to compromise Trump (if it really exists), then threatening to release it at all would mean fucking around with a very ruthless guy who has already demonstrated that he's willing and able to murder people who mess with his agenda.

    EDIT: aaaaand now, after Arnold did that rambling interview, Cohen has denied talking about anything with him and calls it ridiculous... which wasn't what he seemed to be doing earlier, but the whole thing was insane from the start anyway.

    I'm definitely aware of those things. Half of my posts in this thread are about my displeasure with the Democratic Party in general.

    Trump has only had the opportunity to speak ill of and treat Muslim and Latino migrants in this manner because our institutions have failed them for decades; it is this crisis that demonstrates why the duopoly of Republican and Democrat is so dangerous.

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...edName=newsOne

    From what I can tell, she was wearing it as she boarded in DC and as she deplaned in DC - not IN Texas.

    But that's not the point. The point is how it was tone-deaf at best and downright insulting at worst. I mean, if she flew to a visit a former concentration camp and wore a jacket that said "Jews Suck" as she boarded Air Force One, would you still be going "what's the big fucking deal; she took it off before she landed". Really?

    You're grasping at straws, @DigitalChaos , and it's sad to see. You're smarter than that. Whether that jacket was worn IN Texas or not is irrelevant. Anyone trying to be an apologist for this is either naive or a moron, and frankly, I don't think you're a moron. FLOTUS (regardless of Trump, Obama, Bush, etc) has no business wearing this jacket at any time, ever, unless she intends to make the text her official statement. That's how it works when you're both a politician and a celebrity. What you say, and the sign you wear, sends a message and makes a point. She knows that, you know that, and you know that she knows that.

    Shit yeah. It’s been frustrating seeing a lot of the goal post moving by partisan thought leaders. “Separating children from parents is horrible” became “simply locking up the children with their parents isn’t good enough” without any self-reflection of the leaders saying it.

    It reminded me a lot of how everyone was super woke to how fucked our military is and how that shit was gonna be torn apart after Bush, but then Obama came around and made killing children great again.

    It would have been irrelevant if news was honest about it and wasn’t fighting a reputation of being dishonest. Nearly all the coverage was very specifically worded to make it seem like she wore the coat DURING her visit when she wasn’t. It was very deliberately done when you read most of the coverage. It wasn’t some oversight.

    The same is true for her jacket. It was also just as blatant. It’s weird no matter where she wore it and no matter when. The camps in Texas aren’t even contingent on this being a weird thing to wear. Meanwhile, Trump supporters are saying you are grasping at straws because “it’s just a jacket”. The same people who raged about Obama’s tan suit being disrespectful.

    Put it all together and it feels like a deliberate attempt to bait the partisan media. I find it very amusing when you look at it along the lines of celebs trolling scummy paparazzi types. But it has dangerous potential for propaganda mind games when used against legitimate media... if we still have legitimate healthy media.
