Earlier I watched some of Trump's speech at the RNC. I couldn't listen to the who meandering thing. Maybe he was on pain meds or something, but for me, he just wasn't interesting.

It’s like the Sermon on the Mount for the MAGAs and brutal stream of consciousness for everyone else.

So there is some reporting that amidst all the pressure being put on Biden to step down that he asked one of his advisors "can Kamala win?"

If that is true, I respect the hell out of it. That is something that should be on his mind. It would also negate all of the accusations of him being a complete self-centered egomaniac that all of the hard-line Dems have thrown at him.

I wouldn’t be sure ego doesn’t have a lot to do with it.

Had they not covered for his obvious mental decline, that would not have happened IMO.  

Correct

So the Democratic Party is going to pressure the sitting President to exit the race, simply because he cannot win.


They will ignore the will of their people in the name of "protecting" democracy.  What a crock.

From what I read, the will of democratic voters is for him to drop out.

My vote is no, but I’m 50/50.  Pretty sad to see someone put their ego ahead of the good of the country.  His family and aides are responsible too.  But I don’t think he’s far enough gone to not fully understand the stakes and the reality.

Make some damn moves. The pipeline was majorly restocked, trade your top prospects for some proven talent!


Agreed.  Need to move hard.

If the biggest Trump guy in the world was also a big fan of say the Bengals and the best 5 lineman for the job of protecting Joe Burrow were 5 lesbian, transgendered women…they’d be all for those 5 women at the job 


Why can’t lesbians play defense?  Are you saying because they’re lesbians, they HAVE to play offense…even if their dream is to play defense?

Bc you keep repeating it, I assume you know when he referred to Hitler it was in a private Facebook message and he wasn’t calling him a literal dictator and anyone who voted for him fascists (I had to look it up). 

Besides thinking he was a hypocrite for his earlier views, his pick seems to make the right people mad on the left. Nice to see someone under 50. His book was decent.

There's a whole bevy of stuff he's said about Trump that is not of the "I disagree with his politics" variety and more of the "I hate him" variety.  Forgive me for being cynical of a politician dramatically changing his stripes when it so happens to considerably help his desire to get elected.  


I wasn't expecting Trump to pick anyone inspiring.  But Vance is about as swamp as it gets - willing to whore himself out to whoever is the influencer.  


I read Hillbilly Elegy.  I thought it was pretty good.  I remember him catching flack back then from the MAGA crowd for writing about white trash from an elitist perspective.  Now I'm preparing to hear the MAGA crowd praise the book as an eye-opening insight into the disaffected foundation of our country.+

Putting aside for a moment all the social media influencers and focussing on politicians - the people who have political power - hands down, the Dems own the violent rhetoric. From people In Congress telling their constituents to hunt down, confront and fight any opposition, to Hillary Clinton calling half the country deplorable, to Joe Biden calling Trump voters "MAGAts" , to almost every Dem in Congress and Senate calling Trump a fascist and/or Hitler, to vice president Harris parroting all of the above, to the same people saying that Trump was a threat to democracy. This has been going on for 8 years. All of it is verifiable.

You are a fraud.


Ok, you got it.  


By the way, add Trump’s VP to the list of people who’ve called him Hitler.

Crept into All-Star break on offensive fumes. Get the mojo back boys!

The violent rhetoric isn't even close to being equal. Not even a little bit. Did it happen from the right and left? Yes.

But it was never equal and we all know it. And anybody who tries presenting it as an equal thing is a fraud.

This is pretty much the exact thing I hear from every right winger AND every left winger in my life.  Both think the other is evil incarnate with many, many examples.  Alone, I disagree.  Together, I couldn’t agree more.

Looks like Trump has picked Vance for VP. Was a “never trump” guy in 2016.

Called Trump and American Hitler I think.  That kinds of flies in the face of blaming the "other side" for angry rhetoric.

Excuse me, but are you new here?

We are all dicks.

I know.  But jmog is so literal and is like a dog with a bone about p-town.  He thinks p-town is wrong for calling himself a moderate and he disagrees with his take on Biden’s senility.  WE GET IT.

You sure? Are you a PhD in American Political Science? How could you possibly know? 


Kind of like we were all wrong about Biden bc we weren’t medical doctors right? Your take on that didn’t age well at all.


He’s making an opinion.  Don’t be a dick.

For those who think this tragedy has won Trump the presidency, do you think that - if the Dems put up somebody else like Whitmer that it would make much of a difference at this point? Or would it still be full steam ahead either way?

I think Trump wins now regardless of the opponent.

I was talking specifically about the politicians and their media.  The party of "isms" have been using those labels perjoratively for 20+ years with anyone that disagrees with them.

Saying Trump is Hitler is over-the-top vile hyperbole.  Saying Biden is senile turns out to be true...

Biden is senile is true.  Great replacement, New World Order, Soros, pro-life = holocaust, it’s all the trash.  All has been put forth by elected officials just the same as the left wing lunacy.

Other difference is on the right (politicians and media) the ugly rhetoric is mainly Trump.  But the entire left has been doing this for 20+ years.

That's why Trump is so popular - he's the first Republican to use the same vile rhetoric as the left.

This is simply not true.  There are all sorts of voices from the left and right who have been ratcheting this stuff up for years.  The left wing nuts are crazy extremists.  The right wing nuts are crazy extremists.  Unfortunately there are lots of both.  I think we’d all make progress if we quit splitting hairs about which side is technically worse.  There’s no winners in that.  Meanwhile we’ve ceded our public discourse to the AOCs and MTGs of the world - inflammatory idiot.

Ha it was sarcasm. Bc the left cried about the violent rhetoric in the right as they themselves call Trump Hitler, nazis, a threat of democracy, etc. Biden just said a week ago to put a “bullseye” on Trump. 


They both cry about this stuff everyday.  Trying to parse out which side is worse is a fool’s errand.  They’ve both contributed equally to our current situation.

Holy shit. Maybe the left should tone down their violent rhetoric!

Herein lies the problem.  BOTH sides partake in this rhetoric.  Can’t you see that?  This divide is not being perpetuated by libs or right wingers alone  it is BOTH.
