      Fuck teh NYT

      I’m not a huge fan of Amy K. for POTUS, but one thing I know for certain is that we’d better get behind A Democratic candidate and give our FULL-THROATED SUPPORT.

      If that orange POS 45 is not taken out of office by the crimes and deeds he’s committed by election primaries, we need to vote this orange piece of shit of office with a quickness!

      After first reading about this, I Googled Robert Kraft. He has a 39 year old girlfriend, Ricki Noel Lander. I wonder how she feels about this?

      Also, #JussieSmollett didn’t “set race relations back.” We have racists in the White House and millions who support them. “Race relations” were already in shambles.

    Trump faces legal issues for the rest of his presidency, no matter what Mueller finds
    FEB 22, 2019 | 3:00 AM

    President Trump is likely to celebrate if the final report from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III echoes Trump’s relentless claims of “no collusion” with Russia — or least doesn’t outline a criminal conspiracy between his 2016 campaign and the Kremlin.

    No matter what Mueller concludes, the president remains in considerable legal jeopardy.

    The Russia probe spawned a web of federal, state and congressional inquiries into virtually every aspect of Trump’s career — the company that bears his name, the campaign that won him the White House, the inauguration that celebrated his improbable victory, and the administration that he currently leads from the Oval Office.

    Prosecutors in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Washington and Virginia are all pulling at threads that the FBI started unraveling two years ago. Legal problems, and possibly further indictments of Trump’s friends and aides, are likely to shadow the president for the rest of his White House tenure.

    “Once you turn over one stone, there are a host of other matters that come to light,” said Bruce Udolf, who worked for the independent counsel’s office that investigated President Bill Clinton. “And you start turning over those stones as well.”

    I Can’t stand Ruhle

    Under Armour employees have expressed concern about CEO Kevin Plank’s close ties to MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle. Ruhle offered her input on a variety of Under Armour’s business decisions, current and former executives said, and employees were hesitant to criticize her opinions given their suspicions that she and Plank were having an extramarital affair. The company’s board questioned Plank about Ruhle after the company reportedly uncovered emails suggesting an intimate relationship between them. A company spokesman described them as friends.

    Press is covering Smollet wall2wall because it’s conservative click bait. But they’re giving credence to the idea that hoaxes are frequent when FBI data shows hate crimes have risen for 3 straight years. Meanwhile, a white supremacist stocked an arsenal & planned a killing spree.

    It’s not the same thing, and I didn’t imply it was. The point is, a terrorist was preparing to kill hundreds of “Trump enemies,” in a clearly racist plot, but too many seem obsessed with proving Jussie a “racist.” One is more important, and it’s not the Smollett story.

    • Liza says:

      I don’t think it should be downplayed but I do think it is a matter for the Chicago police and not the whole world. It’s been the lead story on national news and I saw it yesterday on BBC news.
