Not irony, BO. The direction to true north is pretty obvious in this toon. It illustrates just how compromised trump is to behave the way he does towards Russia. But you already know that, and it doesn’t seem to bother you. Are you an American?
jlocke…the emotions you rightly sense are genuine. But the wellspring for these emotions seems to either elude or amuse you. It is nothing short of remarkable that trump supporters are so un-American they can condone his behaviors. He not only lies constantly, but he ALWAYS says one thing while DOING the opposite.
Do trump supporters really believe there was no collusion with Russia? Do you really believe there has been no obstruction of justice? Do you really believe the emails sent back and forth from Alpha Bank to the trump organization were innocuous? Do you really think Obama was a Kenyon Muslim? That Nazis are fine people? That the pee tape is not real? That the 19 women who have come forth were NOT molested by trump? On and on the horror show continues.
It feels like a massive political shift is about to take place in direct opposition to this aberration in our body politic. I’ll bet turnout is high and the republicans get crushed. So you just keep on reveling in the discomfort felt by those who oppose trump. Keep on giggling like children that the libtards are upset. Keep on claiming such nonsense as the republican from upstate NY said that mass murderers are always democrats. Together with the other insults being heaped on our fair country, you will continue to galvanize a very upset electorate. They may have been complacent during the 2016 election. I doubt we will see complacency in a few months when we vote again.
Keep em straight Old Coal!
I continue to appreciate your comments. While you can be acidic, you are always fact-based and rational, so your contempt for the Republican Party is more than appropriate—it’s necessary.
Elect a crazy man…expect a crazy administration. This toon assumes trump has the ability to promote consistent “policies.” He has no policy except a feral-like ability to sow discord and conflict. There is no “there” there with this sort of mental illness. Self aggrandizement is the only policy.
Of course there was collusion with the Russians. Trump Jr admitted as much in his emails. The father and son are birds of a feather in that regard. I don’t think junior is insane, though. But his papa clearly is mentally unstable and unable to control his compulsive behavior.
She is a horror, isn’t she? Ordinarily I would feel empathy for someone like Huckabee Sanders. She’s obviously physically unattractive but that’s not at all the issue, is it? Instead, she is ethically repulsive, which is far worse in her position. Her defense of the indefensible is completely responsible for the scorn Michael rightly heaps on her head. The amazing thing is that her father is such an outspoken fundamentalist Christian and she feels no compunction about lying and dissembling. Her lack of character reveals her true ugliness.
This shows the true colors of the evangelicals. Not that any more proof of their profound hypocrisy and amoral posturing was necessary…but still.
Gerken and Gorbag… First, it is really too bad you’ve been propogandized to the point where you think up is down. Gerken, show me anywhere I have lied or misstated fact. This is the tragic beginning of the end for America if citizens cannot discern between the two. Gorbag, your charges of “corruption” by Clinton follows the Kremlin line 100%.
My comments are acidic to be sure, but they are exceptionally clear-headed, and have not been refuted by you or anyone else. You show me where I have erred. I will change my views. I’ve done it in the past as I moved away from libertarianism as a young man, then listened, paid attention, and moved through being a conservative, then merely a republican, all the way to independent. Prove me wrong and I will concede.
Try it. Try to use facts to refute my arguments. I dare you.
Guess what, tigdi, you may not have noticed, but poor pathetic trump is a very sick man. His lies, bullying, racism, and just plain ignorance are all compulsive. I hope you understand that. I hope you understand how he has debased our country. I know you don’t care about American aspirational ethics, but they are the backbone of any exceptionalism we might have formerly claimed.
Then there’s the treason. The violation of the emoluments clause. The massive conflicts of interest. He belittles our friends and supports our enemies. Lionizes dictators and tars democracy. Hates education and loves Putin. Thinks Nazis are very fine people. Yikes, how far will you fall before you wake up?
So honesty means nothing to you? Honor has no meaning either? How about integrity? I’d go for mere civility. As our democracy crumbles and the rule of law is eroded, I hope you’re satisfied as you support the destruction of American national aspirations. Very, very, very sad.
Oh, and tigdi, it’s YOUR fault. You personally. You voted for this abomination. Other than poking your stick in everyone’s eye, what is appealing about this man? Don’t deflect. Don’t lie. Don’t point fingers at others. Just tell everyone why you support him. Be specific. And, no, this has to do with character, not policy. So defend trump’s character, why don’t you?
Hey Chev, what’s your rank in the well-regulated militia unit you train with? Have you made corporal, yet?
YOUR guy, Ramirez. Are you ashamed yet? You should be.
Lots of new commenters. I wonder how many are Russian trolls. A fair number, I would guess.
