Did you guys see the press briefing last night? We can't wait until November, the 25th ammendment should be invoked. I am no fan of Mike Pence but I believe that he would listen to experts in the medical community and not come up batshit crazy ideas about light and cleaning solution injections.

Okay, I know that we can't make voters take tests at the polls (what with how that was used as a racist vote-blocking measure back in the day and all). But maybe we should make the candidates take one before being put on the ballot.

EVERY time I see Trump say “OAN” and point at a press conference, I know it’s going to be some right wing conspiracy theory ass-kissing shit show. One time, though, he actually cut Chanel off and moved on (after that whole “China” thing). He KNOWS what they’re doing. Which makes it even worse.

Trump's recent Twitter feed is going in a disturbing direction... it's all retweets of conspiracy theories about Obama, then there's a randomly retweeted video of him shaking hands with soldiers from 2018, then a random "inspirational video" of some man helping someone across the street (in a video from China), and a bunch of all-caps rants about OBAMAGATE!

The fact that we've become so normalized to this that we aren't all collectively screaming about how unhinged our president is... frankly, this is really scary. I know it always has been, but this past couple days of nonsense rage tweeting is unnerving me.

Calling it that sounds strange though, even if it was a Biden flub earlier....I would imagine it's designed to incite anger when a Trump supporter is presented with facts and difficult to digest (for a trumpian) realities.

Can you imagine a conversation like this:

Sane person: "Look, the fact of the matter is xyz"
Trumpian: "Your facts aren't going to beat my truth! The deep state has gotten to you! Facts are worthless, the truth will prevail!"

I mean, we're pretty much in that state already, this is just actually labelling the facts as an enemy. Wasn't it Guliani who said in an interview "it doesn't matter if it's true or not, people believe that it's true and so it is".

Trump and his sycophantic idiots don’t understand Section 230.

Section 230 is part of the Communications Decency Act (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communications_Decency_Act).


The Communications Decency Act of 1996 (CDA) was the first notable attempt by the United States Congress to regulate pornographic material on the Internet. In 1997, in the landmark case of Reno v. ACLU, the United States Supreme Court struck the anti-indecency provisions of the act.

The act was title V of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. It was introduced to the Senate Committee of Commerce, Science, and Transportation by Senators James Exon (D-NE) and Slade Gorton (R-WA) in 1995.[1] The amendment that became the CDA was added to the Telecommunications Act in the Senate by an 81–18 vote on June 15, 1995.[2]

As eventually passed by Congress, Title V affected the Internet (and online communications) in two significant ways. First, it attempted to regulate both indecency (when available to children) and obscenity in cyberspace. Second, section 230 of the act has been interpreted to say that operators of Internet services are not to be construed as publishers (and thus not legally liable for the words of third parties who use their services).

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act was not part of the original Senate legislation, but was added in conference with the House, where it had been separately introduced by Representatives Christopher Cox (R-CA) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) as the Internet Freedom and Family Empowerment Act and passed by a near-unanimous vote on the floor. It added protection for online service providers and users from actions against them based on the content of third parties, stating in part that "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider." Effectively, this section immunizes both ISPs and Internet users from liability for torts committed by others using their website or online forum, even if the provider fails to take action after receiving actual notice of the harmful or offensive content.

Through the so-called Good Samaritan provision, this section also protects ISPs from liability for restricting access to certain material or giving others the technical means to restrict access to that material.

On July 23, 2013, the attorneys general of 47 states sent a letter to Congress requesting that the criminal and civil immunity in section 230 be removed. The ACLU wrote of the proposal, "If Section 230 is stripped of its protections, it wouldn't take long for the vibrant culture of free speech to disappear from the web."

What Trump wants is exactly the opposite of what he’s doing but he’s too stupid to see it. He’s putting Twitter (and all social media and ISPs) in the position of HAVING TO CENSOR EVERYTHING in order to protect themselves from liability.

He’s giving Twitter the burden to get heavy-handed with bans and censorship in order to protect themselves from liability, because the protection under Section 230 will be gone.

Trump is ALWAYS a case study in “be careful what you ask for.”

Edit: I should state, here, that I hate Section 230.

Here's my concern though: Trump = free money for Twitter. So while they might up the banning and other censorship of plebes like you and me, they sure as shit aren't going to do something like block his account or delete each and ever blatant lie that he posts.

They should. But they won't. I will print this message and eat it if they actually ban his account in order to reduce liability.

I just thought... if I was the CEO of Twitter, at this juncture, I'd just shut the platform down until November 4th. Fuck it. This opinion has nothing to do with the fact that I despise Twitter for all the reasons that I think Trump loves it. There's just too much at stake at this point, and I wouldn't want to have history remember me as the mouthpiece of The Great American Fascist Moment.

I wish both Twitter and Facebook were FORCED to shut down during the lead-up to elections. I hate Trump, but Section 230 DOES allow social media to act like innocent bystanders when they’re really publishers with millions and millions in advertising money without any care as to curation or social responsibility. They are totally unregulated by the FCC. It’s a free-for-all. People can LIVE STREAM A MURDER ON FACEBOOK. And Facebook shrugs and says “but free speech.” The abuse and propaganda on Twitter is INSANE. With very little oversight. And the oversight that IS there is doled out SO irregularly, it makes zero sense. Conservatives whine that they’re primary targets on Twitter, but that’s BULLSHIT. I’ve been in Twitter jail at least 6 times. I’m on at least my 8th account since 2008. These fucking MAGA stalkers are crazy. The Bernie wackos are almost as bad (many are now teaming up with the Trump people). It’s like a fucking cesspool BECAUSE it’s unregulated. Something as big and as profitable without any form of speech regulation is ANARCHY. There is hate speech, there are thousands of people insisting that Michelle Obama is a DUDE, it’s just nuts. And leaving threats up? FROM THE PRESIDENT? WHAT THE FUCK.

Anyway, right NOW seems like a wise and pivotal time to cut ties with the WHO doesn't it? I mean, why wait? What kind of smart, thoughtful leader wouldn't think it was the perfect time to sever ties with the World Health Organization.

It's not a singular group. It can't be classified as such. There's no leader. It's at best a loose network of independent anarchist collectives. You want to judge "their" actions, you're judging a bunch of uncoordinated efforts under a general rubric, in which case, let's call anti-vax a Terrorist Group while we're at it.

Section 802 of the Patriot Act lays out what constitutes domestic terrorism (https://www.aclu.org/other/how-usa-patriot-act-redefines-domestic-terrorism) on an individual basis. All it takes is one precedent-setting prosecution (from, say, an Attorney General like the current one who is nakedly partisan, and favours all but unfettered Presidential authority over the executive branch) to interpret the phrase "dangerous to human life" so it will include non-lethal tactics used by antifa, and then the definition becomes broad enough to include just about anything.

Okay. When I was attending a Christian school, I had pretty much given up on pretending to be a Christian after about a year or two but thought most people would eventually figure out that I wasn't really a Christian before I eventually admitted it when cornered. Their initial shock suggested that almost no one could figure it out, but if evangelicals are still sticking up for Trump and having a problem with people questioning his faith, then I guess that it's easy to fool most evangelicals if you hold a Bible in your hand and go to church once every five months or so while occasionally trying to give them what they want.

Seriously, even some church leaders are calling Trump out on his photo op; but as long as he keeps pandering to his base, he will still get their votes.

Reflecting this morning on how protests might be the defining political story of our time. If we survive the boomers, this nation is eventually going to be governed by those generations who have marched after mass shootings, marched with pussy hats on, and absolutely refused to stop marching for George Floyd.

So many of tomorrow’s politicians will have stories about how they first met each other at a protest. So many future voters will have had their first real moment of political anger during a moment when the nation itself was in the streets. Today’s middle aged Democrats were raised by circumstance to be tepid. They grew up under the 1980’s Americana fetishism and started their adulthoods surrounded by post-9/11 reactive patriotism. They are insecure, slow to take a stand (if they can manage the will at all), and can be convinced they’re losing even as they cross the goddamn finish line.

Tomorrow’s Democratic Party will be something altogether different.

The Orange Idiot wanted this photo op because the news that he had to hide in the bunker with his family leaked and the idea that he was a coward was intolerable to him. So in order to prove his "courage under fire", he had to get outside the White House and the fire at that church was just a pretext.

That peaceful protesters were shot at and gassed was collateral damage.

I mean, he's pathetic, but I don't think any of this matters. I guess it's a fun poke, but ultimately kind of distracting from the point: he's a monster.

He probably struggles with words because he wears dentures and stands weirdly because he's self-conscious about being fat while also wearing lifts and peculiarly tailored suits. Or hell, even if he did have a stroke at some recent point, that's like...opening the barn gate after the horse already jumped it? He was a monster before a stroke and a monster after one and probably equally incompetent on both sides.

His narcissism is fun to quietly laugh at; too loud it makes us look petty. And it's always just a distraction.

agreed! putting too much emphasis on what looks like a disability is ableist and distracts from what is truly wrong with him being the president. anytime we talk about his physical appearance or health, we’re stooping to his level. he frequently talks about women’s appearances and has even made fun of a reporter with a disability. we need to focus on his shitty policies and inability to lead during these tumultuous times.

Counterpoint: I think it's relevant to point out that he literally lies about things like his height. I couldn't give a fuck if he wears lifts. But if he does it because his ego is what really needs a boost, and then lies about something as petty as his height, I think it speaks volumes about his character - and it's absolutely appropriate to note that when you're talking about the person who wants to rule the world.

"Dude, you're lying about your height because you can't let the last guy in the office be taller than you. How should we trust what you say you're going to do regarding foreign policy? Immigration? Social security? If you can't tell the truth about your goddamn height, what can we trust you to tell the truth about?"

I don't know how we should feel about commenting on Trump's physical condition. Of course, he's gone on Twitter and lied about what we all saw, and that's to be expected. And YES, yes, we shouldn't mock someone with physical impairments... Even if ANYONE has ever asked for that karmic backlash to kick them in the ass...

I guess I'd rather be pissed off at Donald Jr using tax payer money to go on safari to kill some endangered animal. We've already established that Trump could walk out in front of a microphone, say something insane like "ga ga goo goo, I'm a big boy" and then shit himself, and the Republicans would say "yes, he's clearly fit to lead the country and carry the nuclear codes." There's NOTHING he could do to prove that he's infirm... does that mean we shouldn't NOTE IT when he clearly demonstrates it? I'd say no... but it won't do any good.

We speak in generalities too often on this forum - and yes, I myself am prone to doing this.

~62,000,000 voted for Trump. ~65,000,000 voted for Clinton. And the number of voters who swayed the EC to the loser could literally fit inside UM's football stadium. If consistently and relentlessly pointing out anything negative about Trump can sew the seeds of doubt in roughly 0.25% of those people, it could be the difference between reelection and defeat. And a LOT of these people's votes had nothing to do with his actual politics and everything to do with their perception of him as a man. Damage the perception, and he loses votes. Maybe not in the millions. But it may not take millions to change the outcome of the election. And we don't necessarily need to sway these people to Biden. We just need to sway them to "screw it, I don't like Trump anymore, I'm staying home."

I don't want to say "fuck feelings". Like...I feel bad that having to attack someone's inability to walk down a ramp is potentially necessary to rid our country of a dictator. Making fun of someone for having a physical ailment is shitty and under normal circumstances I'd be extremely quick to tell people to back off. But if you're going to stand up and lie about your physical and mental well-being and your ability to handle the single most stressful job in the country, then I can't in good conscience say to myself "that's out of bounds, we can't point that out". We can at least try to be careful about how we discuss it, though.

We can avoid making memes about his orange skin. We can avoid Photoshopping shit stains into his golf shorts that really look like they're concealing a pair of Depends. But when he literally can't drink a glass of water without using one hand to push up the other, we can sure as hell say "huh...that's something the guy with the nuclear codes and control of Supreme Court picks should be able to handle".

that's...when do they stop trying to steal everything? is there a time when someone says "no, we've got to leave them something"? because it doesn't feel like that's going to happen.

and I swear to God if Biden pulls an Obama/Andrew Johnson and sweeps this shit under the rug...well I'm going to be very angry about it on a message board and/or Twitter.

Widespread cell phone outages (https://techcrunch.com/2020/06/15/t-mobile-calling-outage/).

I must be missing something. What has this got to do with Trump?

Fuck, wrong thread.

I didn’t post that stuff to SHAME him for it.

I posted it because the President is FULL OF SHIT.

Nicolle Wallace was on MSNBC today saying that the White House has in-house medical capabilities that range from flu shots to being able to perform SURGERIES. A woman could GIVE BIRTH in the White House.

Yet, Trump was rushed to Walter Reed with little explanation. Nearly anything could be handled right there in the White House, except something pretty damned serious. Trump refuses to release his actual medical records, has doctors provide bullshit info about his weight and height, etc. Something serious could have happened at Walter Reed. But we don’t know because he refuses to be transparent. So voters do not know if they are voting for a man with Stage 3 Alzheimer’s, or a man who had a stroke, etc.

Joe Biden has released his full medical records. His neurologists have been and are fully transparent as to his prior surgeries for aneurysms. Voters deserve transparency. But they aren’t getting any with Trump because of his ego; he sees illness and disability as a weakness.

Nobody would be pointing these things out if Trump was transparent. And wasn’t a pathological liar.

Yes, he’s dangerous and incompetent. In hundreds of ways.

The massive Democratic turnout at polls so far indicates that there are endless reasons why voters despise him and want him out (as well as many GOP members of Congress). There is no loss of focus.

The issue with his shaky and unsteady hands could be a lot of things, but none of them are very good, and it should be checked out. The more serious possibilities should be weighed out before the election. It's in the country's best interest to know.

When there exists an endless list of legitimate criticisms, using armchair medical diagnoses as insults and ableism is baffling.

Ableism almost never has an impact on who it is weaponized against and instead, continues to marginalize the Disability community as a whole.

Ableism: I agree. And the focus isn’t on any possible illness or disability.

It’s on his being full of shit.

His inability to walk down a ramp isn’t likely due to a disability. It’s because he had fucking LIFTS in his shoes because he wants to appear TALLER than everyone, and LIES about his height.

Does everyone, here, know what “lifts” are? Lifts are HIGH HEELS inside your shoes. *I* would have problems walking down a ramp in high heels!

His only disability is HATE and LYING.

I think I've been pretty clear that I couldn't care less if he needed a wheelchair or otherwise had a medical issue that did not affect his cognitive abilities and his fitness to make life and death decisions based on highly complex data. If he released a transparent medical report that said he needed mobility assistance and stepped into the Rose Garden on crutches or in a chair or whatever, I'd shrug and go back to my morning tea.

Notice I did not mock his walk down that ramp. I simply provided a video of it captioned with his own words. I will not stop pointing out his hypocrisy and childish behavior (re: his tweeting). Those are legitimate criticisms to level against someone in the country's highest elected office.

Have you taken a moment to consider that perhaps everything is not about you?

Calling people "narcissistic" is ableism. Ableism does not mean physical disabilities alone.

Actually, I care for a lot of elderly right now and that’s not all that serious and it’s pretty common, and normal.

theimage13 Instead of calling Trump that, perhaps call him egotistical. “Narcissistic“ is highly-overused because it became the word-of-the-week after 2016, and it’s a psychiatric term. It’s like constantly using “Oedipal.”
