    Still lining his pocket unashamedly proudly pimping out, and thirstily recycling disrespectful images of pimping out a proud black woman’s husband … pimping out a married man and father of 2 impressionable young daughters who can’t be pleased to see their proud black mother repeatedly disrespected …over and over again – including by people who work for their father..

    And this is how silly men get swollen heads …get carried away with all the fawning over them by desperate women, and end up like Cuba Gooding jr..

    And while we’re at it, please, do spare me the #MeToo crap.. This is yet another example of the ridiculous hypocrisy of that ‘movement’..

    None of them have apologized for 2016. THEY SAID that we couldn’t “scare them with the Courts”.
    How many times did we read that from the WOKE crowd.
    Hillary said Superpredator once upon a time, remember?
    There was no difference between Hillary and Dolt45?
    They had to vote their conscience?
    I remember ALL THAT SHYT 😠😠

    The NBC daytime TV show has been struggling in the ratings for many years
    There is a chance that the NBC show may return next year, it has been claimed
    If it does, producers can bring the cast back under new contracts with less pay

    Days Of Our Lives has terminated the contracts of their entire cast, it has been claimed.

    On Tuesday TVLine reported that the stars were told not to come back as the soap opera is heading into its hiatus at the end of this month. It is not yet known if the show will be canceled.

    The NBC daytime TV show has been struggling in the ratings as talk shows and cable TV has offered stiff competition.

    NBC has yet to comment on the move. The network and its parent company Sony are currently deciding what stays and what goes in 2020.

    The show is currently in its 55th season.

    The Trump administration’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stability Operations is a literal con-artist. No degree. No genuine professional experience. Just a failed music career, a fake TIME Magazine cover and a scam nonprofit.— Brandon Friedman (@BFriedmanDC) November 12, 2019

    Yes many of us already knew Stephen Miller is a white nationalist, but the significance of the revelations in this article cannot be overstated.

    Polling data from New Hampshire shows that Tulsi Gabbard has reached 6% support overall in the primary, but that is almost entirely because 10% of non-Democrats who can vote in the NH primary say they support her (as opposed to just 1% of Democrats)

    Quigley: No way this extortion of US ally happens without Trump

    Rep. Mike Quigley, member of the House Intelligence Committee, talks with Rachel Maddow about whether the House impeachment committees can show Donald Trump’s role in the scheme to shakedown Ukraine if they are not able to depose Trump’s closest aides who are defying subpoenas.

  12. rikyrah says:

    I liked this segment,because Maddow points out the corruption from day one. Peep the fraud from Perry for one of his Texas cronies.

    Trump administration models corruption even as it scolds Ukraine

    Rachel Maddow reports on the latest developments in the Donald Trump impeachment inquiry and its adjacent criminal investigations and scandals, including new reporting on Secretary Rick Perry helping a political backer secure a valuable natural gas contract with Ukraine, and notes the irony of the Trump administration lecturing Ukraine on corruption.

    Republicans struggle to address substance of impeachment inquiry

    Democrats are shutting down Republican requests for Hunter Biden and the whistleblower to testify. And Axios has obtained a memo of talking points for Republicans to use as they struggle to form a coherent defense strategy ahead of public impeachment hearings. David Jolly tells Lawrence O’Donnell that he’s not surprised those GOP talking points are inaccurate: “Neither the facts nor the Founders are on the Republican side in this impeachment inquiry.”

    Fmr. Defense Dept. official: Transcripts show Trump playing ‘dirty game’ with Ukraine aid

    Evelyn Farkas tells Lawrence O’Donnell that the impeachment investigation transcripts show that Trump is acting against the national security interests of the U.S. by siding with Russia over American allies. Lawrence also discusses with Rep. John Sarbanes and John Heilemann.

    UH HUH
    UH HUH

    This really does need to be a campaign point of any Democratic nominee – the across the board, CORRUPTION.

    Why did so many Trump allies benefit from a lucrative HHS contract?

    By Steve Benen

    For much of the country, I imagine Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma is a relatively obscure figure in the Trump administration. She occasionally enters the fray – pushing Medicaid work requirements, blasting “Obamacare,” and making underwhelming political arguments – but for the most part, Verma is only known to public officials, industry stakeholders, health care wonks, and journalists who follow health care issues closely.

    It’s against this backdrop that Politico has a new report on eight former members of Donald Trump’s operation – from his campaign, presidential transition team, or White House – who were paid quite a bit to reportedly work as outside public-relations consultants on Verma’s behalf.

    They were among at least 40 consultants who worked on a one-year, $2.25 million contract directed by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma. The contractors were hired to burnish Verma’s personal brand and provide “strategic communications” support. They charged up to $380 per hour for work traditionally handled by dozens of career civil servants in CMS’s communications department.

    The arrangement allowed the Trump allies to cycle through the federal government’s opaque contracting system, charging hefty fees with little public oversight or accountability.

      “Can someone who speaks in AARP make it make sense?”

      Okay, I will try to speak on behalf of the AARP. This could mean, of course, that Biden lost track of when Merrick Garland was denied a hearing by Mitch McConnell. Republican obstruction that started under Obama and rejuvenated when they lost the House under Trump all kind of blurs together.

      It is also possible that Biden depends too much on his decades of experience in national politics and does not prepare for these public appearances as much as other candidates might. This could lead to speaking more freely and perhaps not getting it perfect. This is what I believe happens to him.

      Another possibility is that Biden is saying that, as president, he believes he can deal with the kind of Republican obstruction that we have under Mitch McConnell.

    • Liza says:

      This is so bizarre. I wish Tulsi Gabbard would pack up and go home. She’s getting way to much attention for her so called campaign. She will not be the nominee and she will not be selected for any position by a Democratic president. She’s worse than a distraction.

    And The Tweet Goes On (@lacadri34) Tweeted:
    The “Harris is a cop” line for many is code for “I wasn’t going to vote for her black as* anyway but I can’t say this so I have to falsely accuse her of locking up lots of black & brown people then pretend I cared about it.”
