This has to be a joke. If not, then someone has to begin slapping Republicans upside the head.

We’we sowwy, Pwesident Twump, pwetty pwease fowgive us. Hewe’s some stwing cheese and a juice box, is it all bettew?

Pardon me for saying that the powers that be have gotten just what they created historically speaking in this country. A whining narcissist for a leader. In charge of maintaining a very thin and bloody layer of respectable frosting over many decades of dirty dirty deeds. And ongoing.

We have walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and trumpnuts, maybe they could open the hearing using that line? I saw this reported somewhere else that was less kind and saw the true horror of our collective sideshow. It isn’t a government anymore, it isn’t even a good circus tent act, it is a horror show, where is Marlon Brando when you most need him?

How many steps behind Turkey are we, where criticizing their president is a crime?

Too bad for you guys, Karma will take all of you down to where you all belong! Peace

Because we are beyond the looking glass, he also listed words that are no-no’s for discussing Trump: cowardly, infantile, bilking the taxpayer, delusional, hypocritical, liar, amoral, lining the pockets of his cronies, draft-dodger, crook, conman, illegal activity, racist, bigot, misogynist, demagogue, un-American, abusing power, disrespected the office.

In other words, they literally cannot speak truth to power because these terms describe exactly who and what TrumPutin is. Never mind that TrumPutin’s former consigliere and fixer Michael Cohen, in testimony before the House, used many of these same terms to describe his godfather. So, it’s not as if the public hasn’t heard these before.

Unless it doesn’t matter what Cohen says since he’s a convicted criminal, even though when he was doing the godfather’s dirty work he was the greatest lawyer in the history of American jurisprudence. Just as Rex Tillerson was the greatest secretary of state in American history, and Jim Mattis was the greatest secretary of defense . . . we know the pattern by now.

Maybe. This is like the high school valedictorians being forbidden to speak about global warming—some authority figure puts up a stop sign, so now you have a choice: capitulate, or exercise your Constitutional freedom of speech.

Hi Dutton:
Marlon Brando is not available-----but Shakespeare certainly had Trump’s number.

"He is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury---- and signifying nothing! "

We are caught between fools and morons, and complicit cowards who, with craven servility, fail to speak the truth, or fight and inform the public of anything critical to us all.

“It is the tragedy of the principled person, who is constrained by principle, being opposed by the completely unprincipled – Barr, and the president, and their lackeys.

“The principled are chained, and the unprincipled romp free. And in a debate over reality, the unprincipled will always win, because they will just lie, and they will make reality whatever they want it to be.”

The right and corporate/vulture-capitalist whores have less than zero respect for truth, or justice, or the Common Good, while very often “the opposition” (if not actually complicit to the crimes or cowering in their fear) are constrained by principle or misplaced reticence…

“Mueller went out like a lamb in his remarks Wednesday when the country needed a lion.”

Our political class from trump to biden and pelosi to McConnell are the antithesis of honesty. The corrupt political stage is set, with money controlling truth, and wisdom a quaint thing of the distant past. Honor meaning nothing except to a few, marginalized by a rotting media, like Bernie, while wealth and corruption write the play.

Good job, Collins. Couldn’t have done better myself!!

Agreed. Horror show. Chaos. What’s the solution? Maybe I should ask some mythical deity.

Hi UncleFester:
LOL. a new definition of POTUS! LOL, I love it .

Ya but which one? There is a plethora of false idols and fake gawds, maybe it’s time to create a new one? I kinda like that idea :)))

Who can object when the president is treated with the respect he deserves?
