Republicans upset Trump got caught

Posted: 11/19/2019 8:14 PM PST

"My Republican colleagues, all they seem to be upset about with this is not that the president sought an investigation of his political rival, not that he withheld a White House meeting and $400 million in aid we all passed in a bipartisan basis to pressure Ukraine to do those investigations. Their objection is that he got caught. Their objection is that someone blew the whistle, and they would like this whistleblower identified, and the president wants this whistleblower punished. That’s their objection. Not that the president engaged in this conduct, but that he got caught." - Adam Schiff

Disturbing traits to see in anyone, horrifying to see in a President

I honestly cannot understand how otherwise sensible conservatives can support someone who acts so clearly deranged. Peter Wehner sums up what they're standing for:

  • Narcissism
  • Lack of empathy
  • Vindictiveness
  • Pathological lying
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Callousness
  • Rejection of norms
  • Shamelessness

Conservatives, how can you support someone like this? Would you be proud if your children grew up to act like this? This is the person who represents your country to the rest of the world, and who has more power than anyone else to affect the lives of those who live here.

Decent people would never tolerate this without being fed a steady diet of lies from right-wing media outlets. I can only hope that someday the nation wakes up.

Beginning of the end of Trump's presidency?

Oh, that it could only be true. Please let it be true! Adam Davidson of the New Yorker says that the events of the past week have marked a turning point in this nightmare we politely refer to as "the Trump presidency."

I feel the same way. The feds, most of whom are probably Republicans but are legitimate law enforcement officials more than sycophants like your average Republican these days, have gotten their hands on EVERYTHING that lying sack of feces has been up to. Just imagine what someone who lies and profiteers so shamelessly in public might be up to when he thinks nobody's looking.

An insider's take on how poisonous the right-wing media flagship has become

A former Fox News regular sums it up nicely: "Today’s Fox prime-time lineup preaches paranoia, attacking processes and institutions vital to our republic and challenging the rule of law."

Seems that a certain segment of American society lives in a bizarro world, which probably suits their lying, thieving leader just fine:
