    It'll be more kindling for the bonfire that everyone keeps saying Mueller is going to light under Donald's ass

    Not to trivialize the amazing response time of the continental US after this bout of natural disasters, but I'd like to remind everyone that large swaths of Puerto Rico STILL don't have power

    I suppose this thread has been off-topic in every which way already, so I might as well post this here rather than making a new one. Today, WSJ is reporting Trump paid $130K to a porn star a month before the 2016 election, in return for her silence on a sexual affair they had in 2006. Trump had married Melania in 2005 and she was pregnant at the time.

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-...yment-for-adult-film-stars-silence-1515787678

    WSJ had previously reported that Trump's friend at the National Enquirer paid off a Playboy model for him ($150K). The cover was that she was being paid for a series of short articles. Trump was with her around the same time as the other porn star (2006).

    So trump didn't want to win, made hookers piss on obamas bed, has dementia, and successfully colluded with russians for presidency.

    Shouldn't you focus on one narrative? They don't really mix together, even if you really want all fake news about him being true.

    Where did anyone say he made hookers piss on Obama's bed?

    And, if I understand the current narrative, it is that he got unethically sourced information to make Clinton look bad from high-ranking Russian officials, but never ACTUALLY wanted to win the presidency; he wanted to go down as a martyr and stir up drama. IF that is the case, that would mean he wouldn't have technically set out to rig the election (unless you interpret it as against himself, which would actually lend credence for once to his claims that Russian hackers were fixing the election in Clinton's favor just before November 2016). That still does constitute collusion with a foreign government, though (again, IF it's true), and things will not go well for Trump if Mueller has evidence that stuff went down

    Don't forget he also payed porn multiple stars hush money after he cheated on his wife with them, sexually molested over 20 woman, watches over 8 hours of tv a day, eats hamburgers in bed,was putins puppet, was bannon's puppet, was invanka's and jarad's puppet,
    is literally worse then dictators who have reporters killed or imprisoned and tortured because they wrote something negative about them https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...op-honors-press-oppressors-awards/1017934001/

    Here's a new one to add to the list: "Haitian government claims ousted dictator ‘Baby Doc’ Duvalier laundered stolen money through Trump Tower."

    https://www.rawstory.com/2018/01/ha...r-laundered-stolen-money-through-trump-tower/

    "Records show more than 1,300 Trump condos were purchased through shell companies, which allow buyers to shield their finances and identities, and without a mortgage, which protects buyers from lender inquiries. Those two characteristics raise alarms about possible money laundering, according to statements issued in recent months by the Department of Treasury, which has investigated transactions just like those all over the country."

    They don't fit together for a normal person, but then Trump is anything but normal. These things were all just a consequence of the progression of time, what you think doesn't fit is beyond me.

    In case you don't believe me on the dementia thing, two days ago Trump claimed he has "a very good relationship" with Kim Jong Un. This suggests he didn't know who Kim Jong Un was momentarily:

    I dunno, for some reason I think people who kill or torture might be just a little worse but you're free to your own opinion.

    Sorry, there's so much fake stuff taken for truth it's hard to tell when one is being sarcastic.

    when it comes down to it..IF you think that bernie, hillary, obama, hillbilly, the bushes, carter are better than trump than guess what? you my friend believe in a fantasy world full of socialism, marxism and communism because those named are no better than trump. NONE of those mentioned INCLUDING trump actually give af about the poor, the homeless, the sick and dying, whether they're american or not. IF you think that ANY of those people give a damn about you or want a better world for us and our kids...You need to be getting an evaluation of your brain...

    This is devoid of reality. Obama put in place all the regulations protecting the economy and healthcare/environmental programs that Trump is now tearing down. Of course there's a difference in the way the two parties govern. Are Democrats perfect? Far from it. That doesn't mean you should ignore the individual. Sanders is an Independent, he was running as a Democrat to gain more traction. Obama wasn't as progressive as I would've liked, but he was much better than the previous eight years. Hillary is a terrible campaigner.

    one last thing lol. you all going off about "the world is coming to an end with trump in office" just have chicken little syndrome. I bet you all never freaked out like this during bush sr, hillbilly, bush jr TWICE and obama TWICE when those 4 have done some dispicable stuff as well. keep thinking trump is the only one that's everrrrr done anything bad. I for one don't like tRump nor did I vote for him or the criminal/ thief/lier/racist/xenophobic/sexist hillary (this is based off her actions and her interviews) and I believe we need a 3rd party system besides demonrats or republicants. If people are going to bash a crappy president like tRump..Don't forget to bash the others because none of them care about you or any of us. ;)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    lol we lived just fine before NN, obamacare and obama's regulations. we'll do fine without it. now my family and friends don't have to pay premiums out their asses for insurence nor have to serve time for not being able to pay for their kids insurence when they already paid out their asses. there's that chicken little syndrome XD not sure if you know or not but that's what presidents do..they change things, just like obama changed rules and regulations that bush made. do you even politic?

    You do realize that the Affordable Care Act is still in place, right? So your friends were either lying about premiums now or while Obama was in office, because nothing should have changed. And why are you talking about Net Neutrality? (I assume that's "NN"?)

    It's not a lie. They (friends AND family) were forced to get insurence for themselves, their wives and their kids. They worked offshore and IF they didn't pay for it, they'd have been locked up or highly fined for penalties. Mhm, that's it, I said NN because it was under obama's regulations.

    Jesus, dude. I dislike the republican party and the conservative mindsetin general as much as the next guy, but I think you should calm down.
