Pete was walking to the mailbox yesterday when a shiny black pickup full of white males in their early twenties wearing football jerseys started yelling at her and apparently trying to moon her. They turned around and came back through yelling out the wrong window. I guess that's where we are harassing middle-aged white women...

I'm beginning to think that the only way to explain supporting Trump is that it is a form of mental illness.

Yeah, a shared psychosis like the Hutu's against the Tutsi's. We all know how that went.

Did you offer those peaceful demonstrators some refreshments? A little kindness goes a long way towards better understanding.

They bravely ran away so no exchange of ideas.

They probably heard about all those violent Biden supporters rioting in other cities and withdrew deciding that discretion is the better part of valor.

Or they thought that Pete might kick their asses.

Forbes: Trump Threatens To Issue Executive Order Preventing Biden From Being Elected President

Quote:
In a wide-ranging speech at a campaign rally Saturday night, President Donald Trump ramped up attacks against his opponent, Joe Biden, calling Biden the "dumbest of all candidates," and went so far as to declare, "maybe I'll sign an executive order that you cannot have him as your president."
just having a completely normal one over here

No worse than when Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi if she would impeach Trump just to stop his SCOTUS nomination and Pelosi replied that Democrats will 'use every arrow in our quiver' to block Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

They're all nuts.

yes, because "I will decide what candidates are allowed to run against me" and "we will [pretend to] consider prosecuting the president for breaking the law" are definitely equivalent

it's an obvious joke, and to underline this, i offer you $1000 to your $20 that he doesn't attempt it

that's 50:1 odds

(we will have to rigidly define "attempt"; i say it means he signs it, whether or not he believes it is constitutional)

Trump presenting a SCOTUS nominee isn't breaking the law. If there's to be an impeachment on other grounds, it was unconscionable to wait until something like undermining a SCOTUS nomination came up.

Your "[pretend to]" interpretation holds no water in light of the previous impeachment without conviction.

Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight.
