    You know, I was just thinking about the Supreme Court and how they put up fences for the Roe decision because they knew it was unpopular. They have not done that for the Trump cases.

    I have a bad feeling about this.

    This isn't decision day today though either, this is hearing day. The decision could still be a while. Fences could still come on decision day.

    So the judge is moving ahead to see if the Fani Willis thing merits anything. I think the fact it's moving ahead says what the end result will be. Jesus. Is it so hard to just keep it in your pants? I direct that to every person involved in this nightmare of a situation.

    It bothers the hell out of me that these people can be so guilty that they're falling all over themselves to turn on each other but as soon as someone says "but what about ____" then the whole case could get tossed. If I had hair I'd be tearing it out.

    Yeah, he’ll appeal but fuck him. This one feels pretty good. $355 million and no business in NY for three years (should’ve been forever).

    yeah that's all in line with the "not enough to make him suffer" that most everyone thought he was going to get. Dunno where he's going to get the money to appeal since he's got to put it up first and he's short by about 100 million.

    he'll find some way to get the money out of his cult base. More NFTs. Banning him from doing business in NY probably hurts most

    wtaf. every article I read about this seems like an Onion article.
    Biden campaign spokesperson Michael Tyler slammed Trump’s appearance at Sneaker Con. “Donald Trump showing up to hawk bootleg Off-Whites is the closest he’ll get to any Air Force Ones ever again for the rest of his life,” he said, referring to popular sneakers from brands Off-White and Nike.
    it's april fools, right?

    This is almost as ridiculous as Al Bundy's "god shoes." Actually, no, these sneakers are more ridiculous.

    Can you imagine anyone being lame enough to buy $400 Biden shoes? I wouldn't buy or wear Biden shoes if they were free, but I'm definitely voting for him.

    The whole Trump thing really is a cult. I know some people say it jokingly, but it really is. Someone out there, who is hurting financially, is going to "do the patriotic thing" and buy some gaudy Trump sneakers for hundreds of dollars, and look like a complete jackass. The history books aren't going to be kind about this sort of depressing, ludicrous bullshit. Hopefully this is all just leading up to him losing in November, and maybe the spell will be broken and people will snap out of it.

    Seriously though, those sneakers look like something Ronald McDonald would wear.

    I doubt that would even do it. Some people are far too deep into it now, and even if some of them know they're in deep, they're too prideful to admit it. They'd rather believe that the deep state, and Antifa, and drag queens, and the Clintons, and the Obamas, and the devil, and the Easter Bunny, and god knows who else all conspired to keep Trumpy from his god given throne than admit that he's just a fucking con artist who is going to suck them dry and keep sucking all to feed his ego and his wallet.

    I can't find a video, but there was a woman who joined Trump on stage at the sneaker con thing, and hugged him and said she loved him, and that he was a good man being unfairly attacked, etc. It was something.

    "We need him! He's a Christian! He's a good, honest man!!!"

    Are you fucking kidding me?! Come on, just own it: He's an asshole and you like that about him. Don't try to sell this "he's a Christian" stuff to me. Even that pathetic squeaky muppet should know he's not genuine about his religious "convictions."

    See, this is why I have a problem with religion, shit like this. Among other things, but really.

    It's hard to understand why the religious right supports Donald Trump, given that his actions and beliefs seem contrary to the teachings of Christ. However, many right-wing evangelicals argue that Trump is a sinner, yes, but they see him as a vessel through which God's plan can be fulfilled.

    A Trump dictatorship is increasingly inevitable. We should stop pretending

    I thought it was thoughtful, well-written and completely plausible. And it's written by a conservative. It's not saying that will happen, but it could.

    There is at least a 50 percent chance Trump could win the election and he's very vocal about how he thinks he should be a dictator, i.e. absolute immunity.

    This shouldn't be dismissed as "fear porn."

    Banking on scary hypotheticals and acting as if every other standing member in the House and Senate would allow a voluntary dictatorship to form without him leaving office is fantasy at best. He would forcibly exit by a legal ground and at the very least, not wishing it goes this route, they could potentially move forward with a messy public arrest for not honoring election terms and laws. January 6th didn't go far enough as his ACTUAL physical involvement was limited. Had his person been amidst a crowd and actually in a place he shouldn't I think we'd be talking differently. The thought that this dolt would actually stand a chance as a long serving "leader" is laughable. Using buzzwords like "dictator" mean more to me than the normal person I guess. To me my mind immediately goes to lifelong serving leaders that will not leave and will not have the ability to leave due to the active serving government under them. The US government would not concede any power to cater to his actual whims like what a real dictatorship is in places like North Korea and off shoots like Russia and Saudi Arabia would.

    He's a bad choice for America for sure but flippantly using those types of words dilutes them and makes them less serious when actual times arise when they should be used. Fascist, authoritarian, racist, communist, socialist, nazi, groomer and "woke" all have but lost their punch when they are so broadly used and for most things on a passing glance.

    Well when you have a constant influx of money donations from idiot donors 24/7 what do you expect?

    mostly because earlier this week his lawyers were talking like he wasn't going to be able to do it. but maybe it's from the RNC piggybank.
