You can start by demanding accountability for the nomination Hillary stole.
Talk about twisting history into a pretzel. Gingrich, Tom DeLay and Trent Lott invented the zero-sum, take-no-prisoners form of politics that Ryan and McConnell are building on now. After years of Whitewater and tens of millions of dollars blown (on orders of Lott and Gingrich), Ken Starr, with the assistance of Kavanaugh, turned the investigation into a vast fishing expedition that ended up finding Monica Lewinsky after years. If Mueller tried the same thing with his investigation, Trump would fire him immediately. And still, Mueller in one year has already earned convictions and numerous indictments. And we haven't even gotten into Trump's financial malfeasance yet.

I agree Bubba Clinton is a scumbag. I think Trump is twenty times the scumbag Clinton is.

By contrast, TJ and the tRumpistas demonize/scapegoat Bubba at every opportunity while excusing every sin - no matter how heinous - committed by tRump.

That's the real difference.

Have to disagree that lies mean nothing. They are his essence. He blatantly tells them on a consistent basis and his base laps them up. He knows that.

What do you want from me?
Ok, got it.

Nothing will ever bother you because you will always choose to ignore facts that you donít like.

I miss the veneration of truth.

The problem is that Trumpistas like TJ support and defend the biggest turds in the bowl while blaming all of the stench on the smaller ones.

They mean nothing to Trump. He is a man devoid of principles or values. His only concern is his own ego. He is mentally ill.
