I think that it would be best for everyone to wait for the conclusions of the special counsel investigation, and in the mean time keep the criticism of Trump to the bad ideas and policies he supports. Sadly we're not that stoic. The matter is ripe for media speculations, and Trump himself is riffing on it in his tweets.

Facts are fluid things on both ends of the horseshoe; on the left you have PoMo transwomen are women nonsense and on the right you have prayer rugs on the southern border and Trump playing 3D chess. In both cases feelings trump (hehe) facts, but in both cases they feel that controlling the narrative is key. They don't even try to persuade, but simply attack other points of view. When the narrative changes, this signals an underlying shift in their whole paradigm.

In Rudy's case, he's said he expects the Mueller report to be "horrorific" and may be trying to manage expectations on Trump's critical base. Because the second that base dwindles below a certain point, the Republicans will turn on Trump and try to get the stain off their party. Hell, some of them will likely succeed. Right now Trump's control of his base can doom any Republican that crosses him too badly. That may change shortly.

Now you are changing your story. First you said it was false news and bullshit, now you are minimizing his changing his story and saying that isn't important. Not only are you unconcerned when these jokers lie to you, apparently you still want to believe them. Honestly John, you are coming across as what confidence hucksters view as the perfect mark.
So now it isn't a big deal if one side of a political campaign conspires with a hostile foreign power to break the law and influence the outcome of an election?

Sigh. No, John, it is not. Trump succeeds by controlling the narrative, altering real facts until they fit his made-up world, then convincing his base. This is a stark signal that the narrative is changing. His base has already picked up on this and are changing the narrative. Go to Twitter, and it is plainly evident.This also signals the defense Trump is likely to make to keep his job. Now you might rightly say you don't care, but this does show a significant shift in the dynamic. You can tell it's big by the fact even Fox carried it.

Civil wars are very healthy for a nation and a president who attacks the press, the intelligence services, and anyone who's not on his side as enemies of the people is a very stable genius.

From the Time magazine quote at CFB's #2288 post:
At that time, Fox News contributor Guy Benson asked Giuliani, “Regardless of whether collusion would be a crime, is it still the position of you and your client that there was no collusion with the Russians whatsoever on behalf of the Trump campaign?”

“Correct,” Giuliani responded.

Well put John. Trump and his cronies have been constantly repeating that CNN and anyone else that critiques him are fake news and they have said it so often that it must be true! Of course you would have to be retarded and really gullible to think that Trump and his crowd have ever told a lie, so a personal statement by Giuliani should be believed and CNN (fake news, fake news, when you wake up you will not remember any of this, just that CNN is fake news) is a shithole that lies all the time.

Apparently you are unable to parse English. Rudy did in fact state there was no collusion in the past, and further he undermined Trump bigly. The CNN just has Trump's collusion statements, but you will find most outlets, including the VanityFair one above stating that this is a huge departure. Please feel free to find any outlet other than Fox that feels this isn't big news.

The "fucking retarded" ones are those that think Trump is gonna sail past all this, or worse, still support the slimy fucker. But hey, if you're a betting man...

It was, several legal experts observed, an astonishing act of expectation management. “Whatever Giuliani‘s motives for going on a show with Chris Cuomo, he’s clearly looking to sharply redefine the issue in the Russia collusion case,” said Bob Bauer, former White House general counsel to Barack Obama. During the campaign through the first several months of the Mueller probe, Trump and his allies were insistent that there had been “no contact” with any Russians and certainly “no collusion” to influence the 2016 election. Over the past year, however, those claims have broken down in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. At least 16 Trump associates had contacts with Russians during the campaign or transition, amounting to more than 100 contacts with Russian-linked officials, according to various reports. Court filings in federal cases involving Trump’s former campaign chairman, former lawyer, and national security adviser, among many others, all paint a portrait of a sweeping Russian influence campaign.

Not exactly the level of the Democrat’s Second Gulf of Tonkin incident. You are confident border protection is still an official mnemonic?



:lol:
Jesus fucking Christ on a pogo stick, if you want real border protection, there's better uses for the money than a wall. If you actually read the article above, the Border Patrol Union was against the wall until it was a political hot potato.

The people that aren't getting paid like federal workers, farmers that voted for this clown and may lose the family farm because they can't get the subsidy that is supposed offset the damages done by the trade wars he started, or plan this springs planting and many others without are getting hurt by what is just a political stunt probably care. Why didn't he get the wall funded when he had both the house and senate? Because as much as the repubs have been servile stooges to this guy, even they can't stomach flushing who knows how many billions of dollars down the toilet for what is just a stupid slogan this conman has used to hypnotize his audience.
Also, give into this malignant narcissist and you think he will be happy and never repeat this sort of bullying tactic to waste more effort and money? It won't happen. Once this sort of petty bully gets your lunch money he will keeping coming back for more. Also, if his erratic and destructive actions start to threaten your livelihood and future you may one of the who the fuck cares.
Yes, good point. Everybody that knew the least little thing about Trump before he ran knew he was a bully. Some hated it, others celebrated. Dems have to stand up to him, or he'll play this stupid game again.

He was claiming the tariffs were disastrous, not the wall. The wall is stupid, but only disastrous to certain species, not humans. See posts above.

Last year the Democrats offered some 27 billion for his wall in return for DACA. Now he's begging for 5.7 in return for talking DACA...and my guess is that he'd give far more concessions than he would have a year ago. But right now he looks ridiculous, and why interrupt an enemy making a mistake? Most Americans blame him for the shutdown, which isn't surprising considering he claimed it initially.

A master negotiator he is not. It would be sorta funny if innocent people weren't getting fucked over.
