Good thing I have index cards for all occasions. I haven’t had to think up something to say for two and a half years. At least, that’s what it says on this card.

How can I sound sympathetic yet do absolutely nothing for these people? Oh, right! I do it all the time! Suckers!

I loved the ‘I have lots of solutions. What do you think I should do?’

And then the next day, today, he’s giving the NRA a french kiss and trashed all the comments made by any of the students and families. He’s so transparent, no one but his cult members are fooled.
AdLib 3 hours ago
It was #3 on his list.
AdLib 3 hours ago
If he has so many, why ask for more?
pinkpantheroz

Exactly. It’s like, “I’ll hire all the best people, I know them” and instead we get white nationalists and much of the admin posititions unfilled. If he swallowed a match, all that gas would blow up and he’d be obliterated. and the problem with that happening is…?

Hey Ad, Hey PPO–I just have to start out with my favorite line from our wonderful teens–I call BS!

Ad–I’ll hire all the best people–the best people at getting indicted!
glenn

Thanks, PPO–I know your thoughts and prayers are with me.

They are giving me a lot of hope! They’ve started a movement that is growing like #MeToo. So women and students are driving the revolution!

That guy Manfort has connections with Russia. I’ll hire him for sure

“I’ll hire all the best criminals!”
AdLib 3 hours ago
This to me looks and sounds a bit like when McCarthy finally got called out. Maybe the NRA will become irrelevant

Ad–it’s about damn time women and students started pushing back against the old men!
glenn

I think the anti-Ukraine plank of the GOP platform that Manafort forced on them will crush him as a traitor.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad–except wouldn’t the “best criminals” be those who don’t get caught?

Youth and women (and crossover between them!) are the perfect ones to drive a real revolt and nation-changing election.

Lots of sponsors bailing out from NRA association
pinkpantheroz

Ad–that is my fondest hope–that we have a nation-changing election.

genn – Hence the confusion, did he hire the best criminals in terms of committing crimes the best or the worst as in failing to even successfully get away with crimes?
AdLib 3 hours ago
A bit of an oxymoron, Ad, Cunning Crims!
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
well, the latter seems to be indicated, Ad. Not much perfection in their crimes, is there?

Check out the many companies bailing on the NRA:

Ad–good question! My take on that is trump either didn’t know all the details of Manafort’s and Gates’s crimes, or since he’s been getting away with all of those crimes for all these years, he never thought they’d be caught. He may not have known the extent of M&G’s crimes; he only knew they were “rich” and in his mind, that’s all that matters. Or, as to the second option, he really doesn’t see them as crimes, because no one has ever called him to task for his crimes.

Manafort is so nailed! Does he genuinely think he will get away or is it fake bravado and he’s terrified?
AdLib 3 hours ago
genn – You really summed it up very nicely. Agreed, Trump knew Manafort was crooked like him, had to know he was also a Russia-owned agent but did he know the degree of crimes Manafort had and was committing? I don’t think so. But don’t forget, Trump and family have been committing financial crimes for a long time too so maybe he figures it’s all fine.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad–It’s fake bravado and he’s terrified. He really doesn’t have many options. If he goes to trial, then all of his misdeeds come out. If he pleads guilty, then he’s guilty and goes to jail. Unless, of course, some Russian assassins get him first.
glenn

glenn, can he be’pardoned’?
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
PPO–he may be able to get a presidential pardon, but from what I understand from the “legal pundits” on the intertubes, the indictment was served in Va., so even if he was pardoned for the federal crimes, he would still have to face trial in Va.
glenn

glenn – Manafort came out today to attack Gates for taking a plea and turning on him. That’s got to scare the hell out of him!
