like a song that's entered its predictable guitar solo break except you can't press skip

like an RPG where all that's left is the main story

well yeah population density pretty much decides the politics of an area with a few exceptions like the Atlas Shrugged refuge of Orange County

Trump 2020 looking more and more likely.

FBI Agent Peter Strzok in Text to Lisa Page: ‘We’ll Stop’ Trump from Becoming President"

^ Yeah, because a two-line down-time joke between mid-level FBI officials obviously outweighs not only the report's ultimate conclusion that Strzok/Page exchange had no effect on FBI conduct, but in the eyes of voters it will also outweigh the following list of Trump scandals:-

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/05/o...ls-a-list.html

And since this list was last updated in Feb 2018, there's plenty more to add to Trump's misdemeanors, for example:-

> provokes trade war which almost every ecomonist agrees nobody can win
> insults long-time ally Canada and pulls a"hissy fit" after the G6 meeting
> continues to praise Kim Jung Un, ignoring Jung's record of crimes against humanity
> claims he "won't settle" despite the fact that the Trump Foundation is credibly accused of "persitently illegal conduct occuring over more than a decade"

These lies from Trump aren't the most politically significant, but to me they are among the most morally creepy. By lying about losing friends in the 9/11 tragedy, he is belittling or cheapening the people who have genuine cause for personal grief. Trump's comments are rather as if one of us were to post a lie to Trollheart like, "Yeah, my sister has those problems too." That's how contemptible it is.

I'm looking for the "joke" but can't find it. At the time he sent that text he was in the middle of the Clinton probe case and the election was in full swing. If a high ranking FBI person had said something remotely similar during the Obama vs Romney race, you think there wouldn't be questions?

As for the G6 meeting..well, tough ****, maybe they need some talking down to. See below.

Paul Manafort sent to jail and Michael Cohen signals he's willing to cooperate with Federal investigators.

Trump now maintains that Manafort had nothing to do with his 2016 campaign.

Next up on Bravo, The Real Housewives of DC.

If they’re not going to arrest Trump why does it matter if Cohen sings?

Not trying to start WW3
