Because one doesn't exist. First, she changed her story completely. Then said she filed a complaint for the lesser offense but not the much more severe one that supposedly happened. Then she said she didn't actually name Joe Biden in the complaint. And now, shockingly despite Biden demanding a copy of the report she filed be released, they're claiming that they can't prove whether or not one does or does not exist.

I'm sorry, but only an idiot would believe this crap.

Got it! And your response to the decidedly left leaning WaPo article which I posted calling Biden's mental state into question? Is that FAKE NEWS too?
to be fair, just saying like, the washington post's about as left leaning as, I dunno, something not left leaning. I cant think of anything. ok it's about as left leaning as jeff bezos!

In a three-minute video shared on Twitter on Saturday, George W. Bush urged Americans to push partisanship aside amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and to remember "how small our differences are in the face of this shared threat."

So how did the Great Unifier respond?


Just impossible for Trump to embrace partisanship and what about the "bye"

bush was just like trump. he lied all the time. his power base was from the evangelicals. his legislation was some nasty bad-ass sh£t. his tax bill broke the economy. he nixed as much of civil society as he could to give eyewatering billions more to the pentagon/private defence ecosystem. new orleans racist mother f.

george w bush is one of the most unpopular presidents ever. he was the face of a criminal executive and he was pushed on stage by his dad despite being way out of his depth and caring for nothing except that weird texas cowboy cosplay even though he was a prissy little aristocrat from the north east whose voice broke after all the cocaine. he got pushed onto stage because his family and their friends are outstanding power brokers who can do this kind of shit. he assumed power only after the supreme court suspended voting recounts following myriad voting irregularities, in the dodgiest election since the 19th century. it was just awful.

bush and trump are just different faces of ruthless conservative power in which the many are ruled by the few, backed up by deadly force wherever needed.


the only difference between trump and bush is that because bush, despite his confused lurching around, is a precious yale darling, he stuck to the script, like all noblesse oblige, and repeated lies written for him. trump also lies when hes got the script, of course, but trump also lies again when he's doing his own shit and basically standing there talking about whatever. this is the only difference between the two, that bush stuck to script. and this difference is because trump didn't ever really expect to become president, while bush was born into a very political strata: trumps a grifter and bush had learned the etiquette.

oh yeh and the other difference is that at least trump won the election fair and square ffs. that 2000 election is perhaps the most partisan thing to ever happen in American politics. so george w bush can take his laughable plea for unity and stick his dad's head on the sharp bit.

a million flowers thrown off the bridge for what they did to Iraq ffs

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Looks like Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert will not last long in Trump's coronavirus task force.

Quote:
US President Donald Trump was asked by a reporter at the White House on Thursday: "Have you seen anything at this point that gives you a high degree of confidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the origin of this virus?"

"Yes, I have. Yes, I have," said the president
Then
Quote:
Fauci shot down theories the virus that has caused a global pandemic was man-made or released accidentally from a Chinese lab.
Source

It must be very difficult as a scientist working for Trump when he just says the first thing that comes into his head, regardless of whether it has any relationship to the truth!

The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump group led by George Conway, a Washington, D.C., lawyer who is a frequent Trump critic and married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has released an ad criticizing President Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Seems Trump did not appreciate the ad.

....I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, Moonface, but it must have been really bad. ....
It is still really hard to believe that this is a US President who is writing this childish stuff.

Why twitter allows this ad hominem stuff is incomprehensible.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Didn't Trump ban all WH health staff from testifying to the Senate a few days ago?

Well, the Fox clip he's retweeted from "Team Trump" says that Fauci will testify. Albeit "in front" rather than "to", does that make a difference?

MSM having used Christine Ford as a martyr figure (she even appeared on the cover of Time Magazine) are far more quiet on their coverage Tara Reade. Yet another example of them failing to do their job, and why people have lost trust in the MSM.
The double standards are astonishing yet somehow expected.

So far as I understand Trump banned all WH health staff from testifying to the House, he is allowing Fauci to testify to the Senate; maybe he thinks the GOP majority Senate will give Fauci an easier ride.

President Trump on Tuesday said Anthony Fauci will be allowed to testify before the Senate next week, but that he would prevent the government's top infectious diseases expert from appearing before the House because he believes it's full of "Trump haters."

It's interesting how you accuse Dems of having double standards and yet completely fail to recognize your own. Trump and his supporters aggressively denied all allegations against him by 22 women. And Republicans did something very similar to Christine Ford... accusing her of being a liar, etc.

Biden asked for the allegations to be investigated -- for the records to be found. He has handled this maturely and intelligently.

Republicans have desperately been trying to paint Biden as being some kind of pervert and having a field day with it. He whispers in a girl's ear in a loud, crowded room and it's turned into "hair sniffing." He puts his hand on a woman's shoulder and somehow it's turned into sexual assault.

Considering the great lengths that Trump and his supporters have already gone through to try to shame Biden (including hurting his son), people would be stupid to take these accusations by Tara Reade seriously -- particularly when she so conveniently and completely changed her story after her first accusation didn't get enough attention. Republicans are doing a fine job of revealing the fact that they desperately want these accusations against Biden to divide Democrats, but only an idiot would sit back and let that happen when there is no real evidence to back any of it up.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

VP Pence indicated today they will wind down the White House coronavirus taskforce around Memorial day (May 25th).

Presumably, they in the future just plan to send digital good luck cards to the hundreds of thousands of Americans expected to get sick or die.

I always thought progressive values / metoo was more the Democrat kind of thing so I would expect them to hold themselves to their own standards.
