    Insurrectionists and subversives: Trump and his supporters (Thread for all things Trump)

    Sorry, @Amy L , I know this is a serious topic, but "neckbeards" :ROFLMAO:

    PRESSION (Pressure) documentary featuring Rochette, Phaneuf, Dubé, Sawyer, Séguin, Bilodeau, Ruest

    I watched PRESSION and it was fascinating - sad, but fascinating. I'll summarize what I saw - please keep in mind that I'm an English speaker who can read French, although not really fast, so this is what I got from the French-language closed captioning along with the audio. Any...

    According to Frank Figliuzzi (former FBI counterintelligence staff, now MSNBC contributor) on Twitter, the president has three passports: his own personal one, a red diplomatic one, and a black "government official" one. The President is no longer entitled to use or hold the red and black ones...

    From what I've read, Mar-a-lago isn't the exclusive luxury experience that Trump tries to sell it as. Crappy overpriced food, incompetent staff with a lot of turnover, obnoxious patrons, and filthy. So house arrest there might not be all that different from being in prison :shuffle:

    IIRC when he was elected, there was some discussion that what you see is what's left of his natural hair grown very long, which is why it takes him several hours every day to arrange it to cover the rest of his head....

    In most prisons the inmates aren't allowed to wear toupees or have aerosol cans (like hair spray or self-tanner). Imagine a non-spray-tanned Trump with his natural hair, in an orange jumpsuit, picking up trash by the roadside. You know you'd love to see it.

    Evidence can prove motive. The person being charged doesn't have to say why they did or didn't do it for motivation to be established, at least to the standard that's needed for a conviction.

    It's fine. It's not like the WaPo is circulating judges' and FBI agents' home addresses and phone numbers and email addresses, unlike some media outlets. Describing what might happen as "payback" is not a call to arms.

    The Russian media are telling the Russian people that Ukraine was invaded because the Ukrainian government are Nazis and the Ukrainians need to be freed. I wouldn't put a lot of credibility on what state-controlled Russian media are saying about Trump's troubles.

    I can't find the source, but someone on Twitter pointed out that Trump rarely read the daily intelligence briefings that the President gets. So it's unlikely that he would care about or even know the difference between the different types of classified documents. He probably assumed that because...

    I don't disagree that there are checks and balances on the President and their powers and actions, as there should be. But I would still argue that there is an implicit assumption that the President will take the job seriously and responsibility. I don't think there was any expectation that a...

    Like I said, he refuses to pay his lawyers if they don't get the results he wanted, and refuses to take their advice if he disagrees with it. So no good lawyers will work for him. I bet Robb only took the job because the PAC is paying her, not Trump himself. At least the PAC has money (allegedly).

    I was thinking about Trump's antics last night in relation to something on a much, much smaller scale, when my department at work was being run by a program head with delusions of grandeur and who was also extremely paranoid. So many organizations and systems are structured on the implicit...
