Today, senators are asking questions of the Democratic House managers and Donald Trump’s legal team. We’ve got it live streaming after the jump.
I’m a bit late to the proceedings as I’ve been writing up Hannity's insertion of himself into the proceedings (see my last three posts) but I’m tuning in now for the duration, except for a possible errand later.
If you’re watching or if you have watched, share your thoughts and observations below.
The live stream below via C-Span.
Also, you are free to call Trump names such as stupid, liar, crooked, incompetent, unfit for office, ugly, fat, demented, insane, etc. At least until further notice. :)
Nowadays, PC often seems to be silly, mostly because the care taken by the ethical has done nothing to stop those who seem to believe that vulgarity and mostly lame name-calling (alla Gutfield) gives them an aura of intelligence. Dare I say it? That was always the attitude of Cr-words towards anybody who was not lily white.
PC has done little to stop the bullies who insult others in the most vile manner and apparently with impunity. I shall change my mind when the likes of Google and Facebook take action to throw the likes of FoxNation and its denizens off their platform.
I’m told by American friends that the term “C-word” is already attached to a common MCP 4-letter vulgarity. That one shall therefore be the Cr-word, or – alternatively – “saltines” which I remember as a synonym for the Cr-word occasionally used in the late-’50s.
Bemused, I think the meaning of your comment is still clear.
So, now, we have to avoid not only the N-word, but also the C-word, and, I presume, the R-word. What’s next? the T-word? In a world where any RW, from Trump on down, can call anybody any name they want, even the most vile and threatening. I’m thinking of Fox Nation, here, but I’m told that there are far worse sites out there.
I lurk on many sites but comment only on NH. For the reasons mentioned by John McKee. NH is the most civil and substantive site I’ve ever consulted. The other sites provide nothing of interest beyond childish swearing and name-calling. Very T-wordian.
Message to Google: please do try to be more discerning. That would do a lot to improve your credibility.
Nevertheless, I for one will try to abstain from making comments I would not be happy to repeat in a courtroom or a cocktail party.
Note to Google: Get. A. Grip.
Unfortunately, I got a policy violation notice from Google. But they don’t specify what the violation is. I can make some guesses, though, so I will be editing some of the comments, None of them violate our policy but this site cannot continue if Google suspends us which it will do if there are repeated violations.
Extrapolating, I may decide that taking another person’s property is a good thing for the collective body since that would reduce wealth inequality and hence strengthen stability.
Somehow I don’t think that reasoning would work in a courtroom. The GOP are really and truly shameless if they buy into that idea.
The spineless GOP-controlled Senate has surrendered Congress’s constitutional right of oversight. This nation is headed down a very dangerous path. If Mango Mussolini is somehow re-elected, we won’t recognize our country in four more years. A dictator President, a House of Lords impotent Congress, and am ultra-conservative Judiciary that defers to Presidential whims.
There’s also the likelihood now that Bolton’s book will be held back til after the election – apparently as punishment for his temerity in leaking that Pence’s guys have been going through it since December.
My hope for the year continues to be that people will pay attention and show up to vote in November. It’s the only way we can get Pence and his minions out of there and start to clean this mess up.
Garcia also says that Trump is trying to corrupt the process by claiming he can decide which subpoenas to respect and which not.
I had tried to post that Fox cut away to air The Five which started off by touting Trump’s USMCA signing.
