Lol, I remember that! I don't know what was more funny about it. 1. The plug for a Trump business. 2. The tacked-on "I love Hispanics!" right afterwards. 3. Or how likely it was that immediately after the pic was taken, he threw the taco bowl away to have a well-done steak with ketchup.

The Well Done Steak w/Ketchup is the main reason I voted against him in the primaries, fucking moron.

LOL, Trump says woman accusing him of rape is "not my type " [read: ugly]....in deposition mistakes woman for ex-wife Marla Maples.

Slick move by the attorney

So Trump is found guilty of sexual assault (civil) and defamation....$5M judgement.

I think he's probably guilty.  I just find it interesting that you found him guilty of assault, but not rape?  But if you determine a rape inside a busy department store seems unlikely, then is her story still credible?

Anyway, nice to see Trump's mouth finally writing some checks he has to cash.

Take a look at the $1 billion US embassy almost completed in Beruit. It is a compound with multiple high rise buildings, recreation areas, nature trails and an outdoor pool.  In a country smaller than Connecticut with a tiny amount of US visitors.  Approved, authorized and begun during Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” world tour.


He’s an insider and a fool just as much as the current senile insider and fool is.

It is very dumb. Never heard of it until now, but my first google search showed it was planned in 2015…  but yes, Trump didn’t stop it, because he is a stooge.

At least there’s no such thing as American empire building.  Just trying to bring that good ol’ freedom to all four corners.

1. It’s stupid.


2. It was approved under Obama, hope that helps.

No it doesn’t help.  The point being that both of these parties are filled with people cut from the same cloth.  Whether it’s some democrat claiming he’s for the Everyman, or some “outsider” like Trump (lol), none have the interest of the American people at heart.

You’re not wrong but your example falls flat when it was approved during a different admin than the one you claimed.

I thought so.  You’re a pretty literal guy, and I work with a lot of engineers.  They’re generally very literal as well.  


My original point wasn’t to make too fine a distinction on who approved what.  Wasteful government spending is added to by every president - certainly Obama and certainly Trump ( despite his popular appeal as an “outsider”).  The result are things like billion dollar embassies in podunk countries.  Smells like empire building.

Surely he has something more important going on in his state.

I don't think advertising campaigns is something ANY politician should be commenting on, unless it's something extremely offensive like Hitler kicking puppies.

But wait....I looked at you screenshot and thought "well, maybe he's just responding to a question".  But then I read the chiron and it sounded fake to me.  Sadly, it is not.

Cruz has said some dumb shit before, but that has got to be up there.

Assuming this is true and not photoshopped…


I looked into it and it’s not looking into ties with Mulvaney it’s that alcohol companies are regulated to advertising in areas that are at least a certain percentage above the legal drinking age.


Can advertise in the NFL, but not college campus.


The argument is that TikTok in general, specifically Mulvaney’s viewer demographics, are mostly under the age of 24. If Bud Light advertised on Mulvaney’s tiktok account (no idea if they did) it could have broken that regulation.


Sounds stupid, probably is stupid, but I “understand”…kind of.

Even with the age of 24, that's still very nanny-ish. Eighteen yrs old to see a commercial or ad is quite old enough. This is dipping into the "muh vidya games make mass murderers!" zone.
