It's hard work to have to keep defending all the crazy stuff that Trump says.

It's pretty comical how often this administration shoots themselves in the foot, especially from a PR standpoint. Not even one week after declaring victory over the Barr summary, they're now threatening to strip away health care from millions of people and de-fund the Special Olympics, among other social programs that help people with special needs. Not to mention some Republican jackass on the Senate floor quoting Mein Kampf, lol? Hilarious.

GOP gonna GOP.

Imagine if any of that actually mattered. What a wild world that would be. Instead itís business as usual and their supporters will spend more time complaining about a tv actor not having charges brought against him like itís the worst thing to happen since 9/11. #NeverForget

Trump was tweeting yesterday to demand a full DOJ and FBI investigation into Smollett. Trial run for the investigations into the Democratic candidate in 2020?

I know what he's trying to illustrate here, but I can't help but be really annoyed with how poor that graph is because they're unrelated items that don't belong on the same scale.

Unrelated? Both are Trump promises.

Also, the graph isnít too fancy so Trump supporters can understand it too, not just libtards and socialists.

What exactly is wrong with the graph? Both columns are measures of number of people affected by Trump policy.

Much of a presidential re-election campaign is predicated on the notion of "are you better off now than 4 years ago" and that is a pretty good reminder that many more are impacted in a negative way than a positive. Are the impacts equivalent? Of course not. Getting a good paying job back can be much more impactful than having to figure out health insurance alternatives.

It's odd that the scale for people losing medicare goes into the negative. It should go into the positive as there are positive number of people losing healthcare.

It's not comparing people who lost medicare to those who gained jobs, it is a (tongue in cheek) graph of people that should vote trump because of the benefits that they gained.

for instance a small number of new coal jobs = a small increase in votes
a large number of people losing benefits = (hopefully) a large number of lost votes, thus negative.

I read the article and didnít see what you are stating. If you are claiming that a higher percentage of the population of the US would vote for Trump than canadians would for Trudeau then that is supported by the article, but so is the fact that more would vote for Trump than for Scheer.

And what does any of that have to do with American politics?

2 quotes from trump today...

Quote:
I took better care of Puerto Rico than almost anybody. Puerto Rico has been taken care of better by Donald Trump than by any other living human being."
Quote:
“There's no very great rush from the standpoint that we're waiting for the decisions from the court.”
and one from his Sean Hannity interview, just because...

Quote:
"And Nancy Pelosi is smart, she's right and what she is saying because, to be honest with you, especially now after this great result, because I didn't know -- you know, you just can't, when you see the people that we are talking about, you just don't know that you are going to get a no collusion answer."

So now we have both McConnell and Rand Paul blocking release of the Mueller Russia report.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/28/u...tw-nytpolitics
https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/...report-release

Trump appointed AG William Barr putting out an an interpretation summary of the report that denies any wrongdoing on Trumps part without releasing context on what the scope of the report is nor anything substantive about report details other than choice quotes in under 40 hours after the report was released to release a 4 page summary. Barr's argument that Trump could not be indicted was 19 pages for context. Barr says that he is going to send the report out to the WH to redact before allowing others to see it and now Republicans are attacking house Democrats demanding for their resignation for the investigation? Why are Americans not more upset about this blatant cover-up?

Again, Congress has no authority over the release of the report. These are non-binding resolutions that only "call for" the release of the report that are being blocked. Its entirely up to AG Barr to determine what will be released and when. For the record, Barr has already stated the release date will be "weeks, not months", as he still has to go through the mountains of evidence that was collected to redact any sources and methods that would be revealed.

I know this thread is filled with major Orange Man Bad sentiment, but people need to relax. There's no way Barr is going to censor, manipulate, or otherwise change the thesis of the report when now private-citizen Mueller could immediately go in front of Congress or on any major news network and start ringing alarm bells.
