All we need now is for that old bat RBG to kick the bucket

Trump would then get his third pick on the Supreme Court

I’m getting bored from all the winning

Whitey you may want to keep your uniform in the closet for a few months longer. He’s still a few steps away from declaring the Fourth Reich. And I know you don’t support Herr Trump. Right....
Fortunately, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not in the pocket of the Koch Bros and is still an just and honest jurist. Now we know you are Ageist with extremely bad taste. But I’m sure you know somebody who will provide you with an anecdote that will validate your ageist bad taste.

Trump has banned Acosta from White House now that should keep his name in the headlines for a few days , all tv news media in the country are a disgrace they do not report news but opine on it and spin it  I Turn it off and go outside and talk to people to see what’s really going on .
Also Let’s see what mueller has if anything get it out on the table and get it over with and move forward appropriately.

What are you talking about. Trump lies, lies, Lies... the media ask him questions about his lying. He obfuscates, lies, gets mad and calls them fake news. You interpret that as “opining”. Trump is the one on the other end of the questions, lying. The Media just film Trump’s response and broadcast it. That’s not opining.
This outrage about the Media doing their jobs, reporting factually on the Trump Administration and putting them in the same frame as opionionists like Limbaugh, Alex Jones and Hannity is pure “bullpoopey”.
Now go out get us a few nice anecdotes from your friends to validate your BS.

Finally you’ve dropped the “I’m not a Trump supporter” schtick.

Yeah, that was rough, unfair questioning from Acosta. ::)

What exactly did he ask that was wrong? And how exactly do your neighbours know “what’s really going on?”

Would you be asking Mueller to cut his investigation off before it was done if it was the Clinton or Obama campaign he was investigating?

Were you similarly outraged at the ten different Congressional investigations into Benghazi?

Trump is a tr*mp. You can see from the way he reacted to Acosta . He wants attention and cannot deal with criticism.
You would also wonder about how he deal with his domestic partner when things don't go his way.
The questions were valid.
The response was not.

He makes Nixon look statesmanlike. The Presidency is a great revealer of character.

If I was a Democrat, I would be furious because the Democrats won the “Senate Popular Vote” and somehow still lost seats. The system is rigged against them and it’s rascist and unfair

It's really not though. Most of the Senate seats up this time were in democrat areas. There was even a democrat v democrat race in California I believe. It means nothing that they won the popular vote. Nothing.

As far as I can tell nobody on here has said anything about the Senate race being rigged but whitey obviously has some point to make about it.

It's the State houses that are rigged and unfair but Trump's complete incompetence has meant that the Dems can start to undo some of the gerrymandering nonsense your friends have been up to since the Tea Party days!!

On Acosta well that's disgusting. . . Huckabee saying he "Placed his hands on an intern" what a crock of complete shit!! If anything the intern was out of line!

100%. Someone made the point on the Mayo ladies thread, that they made a loaded allegation. Its the same in this case, "young female intern". Its clear what they are trying to do given the current landscape with "#metoo" etc. An absolute disgrace.

The Democrats increased their vote share from the corresponding 2012 Senate elections, when they did very well.

They got the highest vote share in the House of any party since 2008 on an extremely high turnout for a mid-term election.

Feel free to ignore that, by all means.

No one here has said that the Senate popular vote means anything. Some states didn’t even have Senate elections. Others had two.

Whitey is just trying to distract. Or maybe he is really in denial about what the GOP has become.

It didn't look pretty, and he has given them an opportunity to act
