Watched former Pres. Obama deliver a eulogy at the funeral of Congressman John Lewis on TV yesterday. He was eloquent, dignified and statesmanlike, every inch what you would expect of a President of the USA. What a contrast!

Would Trump accept Democrats challenging his victory if he won?

He'd laugh in their faces because he'd know they didn't have a chance. He'd still be sitting in the White House, Bill Barr would still be head of the DOJ, and countless corrupt and compromised GOP politicians would still be polluting the system from top to bottom.

If the Dems retain a healthy House majority (which they surely will) and if they gain a Senate majority (which has become possible over the last few months) they will at least be able to make life very difficult for Trump; but he'd still be in power and would no doubt hope to rule by Executive Order.

I sincerely hope Jim Jordan has been enjoying the kind of company of his fellow congressman in the manner he denied knowledge of from his college coaching days and really suffers.

I try to resist the temptation to wish ill on people but in purely practical terms, if playground idiots like Jim Jordan and that utter dickhead Ron DeSantis, Florida's governor, end up getting seriously ill with Covid it might actually end up saving tens of thousands of lives in finally waking up all those freedom-loving cretins who see masks as an infringement of their constitutional rights and vaccinations as an evil government mind-control plot.

Not that I'm actually terribly bothered about that demographic staying healthy, mind - if anyone has to get ill, it really should be them. No, I'm far more concerned about the unnecessary burden on the poor health workers who have to try to save their stupid, entitled, dumb-ass lives.

I’ve just seen the louse Jim Jordan’s interrogation of Antoni Fauci sorry Dr Antoni Fauci in the meeting about the Covid19 response and as per exactly as you’d expect Jordan cannot stay on relevant message. Trying to trip up the good Dr by asking if there should be a response to the protest as there is/was to gyms opening up or churches having the congregation numbers controlled. Well done Dr for making Jordan look like the ass he is and for turning the tables on the bias partisan nature of the questions he was being asked by republicans.

With many GOP members and party donors having a change of mind as to Trumps credibility it might stand there’s a few less republican representatives after November.

In a fair and honest 2020 election I honestly think that there'd be far fewer GOP Reps, and significantly fewer Senators, come late November (by the time all the mail-ins had been counted). It will be nowhere near fair and honest, though: all the votes, for all the candidates in various posts, right down to some local councillor or whatever, are on the same ballot paper or polling station terminal. Screw with one individual's ability to vote, and you screw with all their choices.

I haven't seen any of those hearings, bar a few minutes. I still force myself to watch the occasional clip, as I do of Fox News, just to make sure that I'm not living in a bubble, and that those people really are still as horrendous as I remember them to be; but I watched so much of the Mueller-related hearings, and the Brett Cavanaugh confirmation hearings, and the impeachmet hearings, and so many other things over the last few years where they proved themselves, over and over again, to be mind-bogglingly obnoxious, childish, and actually genuinely pathetic, that I really need to ration myself these days for fear of inducing a heart attack brought on by impotent rage and utter disgust and contempt.

Speaking of the danger to GOP senators, here's a bit of a shocker (in a good way for once):

McConnell signal to Republican Senate candidates: Distance from Trump if necessary

In recent weeks, the Senate majority leader has become so concerned over Republicans losing control of the Senate that he has signaled to vulnerable GOP senators in tough races that they could distance themselves from the President if they feel it is necessary, according to multiple senior Republicans including a source close to McConnell.

I was under the impression that McConnell is one of the most vulnerable senators despite be speaker of the senate for exactly that reason.
The Trump election win has been a bit of an epiphany for me in that before 2016 I was central but right leaning. With Trumps kind of conservatism and Boris’ blatant lying to ensure a Brexit victory followed by both’s incompetence with the pandemic and BLM as well as other things, I now find myself entrenched in a liberal mindset.

Glad to have you in the Libtardiverse! :greensmile:

In all seriousness, and as I remember saying in as many words quite a long time ago on this thread in response to one of those posters who never appear any more (apparently because we beastly libtards have suppressed their views and now they're too frikened to post because they love pretend tough guys but they're not tough guys themselves, and they can't put together a coherent argument to back up what they have to say): to me it boils down to the very simple matter of fundamental human decency, and who exhibits it and who doesn't.

The latest Lincoln Project ad is just spooky. To begin with I was certain that this must be another Trump voice-over, but then I realised that it's the chap's own words. He has Trump's vocal mannerisms and utter idiocy and creepiness down to perfection.

MUST WATCH! as I believe they like to say on the Yoochoob.

Back to Kanye West's absurd proposed presidential run: Trump campaign workers and lawyers have been discovered quietly filing candidacy papers in key swing states, apparently beause the GOP believes that he'll take votes from Biden as a spoiler candidate.

I'm genuinely quite puzzled by this. I know the GOP are absolutely desperate and will play every dirty trick in the book, and some that aren't even in the book; but I wouldn't have thought that anyone thinking of voting for Biden, Kanye fan or not, would be inclined to switch their vote to a MAGA-hatted loon who even managed to out-talk and out-crazy Trump on his visit to the Oval Office. Wouldn't Trump supporters be those more tempted to 'ave a bit of a laff on polling day and switch their vote to Kanye cos he's such a character, like - and hey, wouldn't it be fun to have a Kardashian White House reality TV show?

I put it down to casual, lazy racism from Team Trump with more than a modicum of desperation: stick Kanye on the ticket and he'll draw some of the black vote away from Biden.

You're probably right, but if any black voter falls for that and helps Trump get re-elected as a result, they'll bloody well deserve him - as, indeed, will the country. Fool me once, shame on you, and all that.
