    So he would trigger an article 5 incident to apease his ego? I hope one of is multiple cases gets him locked up. And I don’t care where, as long as it means he isn’t in office.

    Why do I have a feeling that Putin told him to say that. It’s just too convenient for Trump to say that after that Tucker interview.

    Like, am I imagining things? It’s pretty clear they have communication, right?

      Oh no, they’ve been communicating since before 2016. Just look at the changes to party platform for the GOP that year regarding funding to Ukraine. The new policies, which came directly from Trumps people, reversed course on Ukraine and basically adopted pro-Kremlin positions. And it was out of left field…on alot of policy positions, they didn’t comment on shit or even have fully developed positions…but on Ukraine they have a very strong and very pro-Kremlin stance.

        Absolutely. For anyone who’s not familiar with Seth Abramson, he’s written three enormous books sourced from major news media piecing all of it together in excruciating detail. Here’s an interview about one of them for some flava.

        TL;DR Donald Trump is 100% colluding with russia and has been for well over a decade. There’s not a question about it. It’s a tower of concrete facts.

      And that is why he was ok with Russia blackmailing him with the pee pee tape.

    “If I were president I’d encourage Russia to start a world war by telling them to attack a country in a very large military alliance that we’re part of”

    Just when you think the MAGAzis and their sprayed clown couldn’t get any dumber, here comes a public statement.

    He is desperate to stay in the headlines recently, wonder what (specifically )he’s trying to hide this time?

      We have to learn from Germany’s mistakes: armed resistance is legitimate in the face of fascism.

          There are soo many rabidly anti 2a liberals who don’t understand this. The cognitive dissonance when you point out that they are setting aside a key right and putting their faith in police and other authorities to fight fascism when they currently can’t be relied upon to NOT routinely discriminate and persecute leftists and minorities in a normal political climate.

              Feel free to put your trust and safety in State and Federal police agencies if Trump is elected. I’m sure it will work out well.

    Every now and then trump says something where I think surely that had to have been taken at least slightly out of context, but nope, it’s practically verbatim. Every single time.

        The one whose ex-president this article is about, which is what makes the whole thing funny.

        The US called for help after 9/11.

    "No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You got to pay. You got to pay your bills.”

    This is a level of hypocrisy… I just cannot

    Americans really need to bash their elected representatives to invest in public schools and free/affordable higher education. This muppet already happened, but maybe it’s not too late to save the upcoming generations from another one.
