The woman who got over 2,860,000 more votes than the president presented an interesting hypothetical scenario to Rachel Maddow on how absurd our election laws have become:
“Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show and that person said, ‘You know, the only other adversary of ours, who’s anywhere near as good as the Russians, is China. So why should Russia have all the fun? And since Russia is clearly backing Republicans, why don’t we ask China to back us...China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns? I’m sure our media would richly reward you’...According to the Mueller Report that is not conspiracy because it’s done right out in the open.”
Sorry, Hil. This is only OK if you are a Republican. Don’t you know the "One Rule" by now?
As if that isn’t depressing enough...
It’s also OK if you are a Republican to advocate for torture, incarceration without charges, and start wars of aggression based on lies.
"First of all, I actually like Dick Cheney, for real. I get on with him. I think he's a decent man." - Joe Biden
Ol' Joe will pander to anyone. I'm sure he "actually likes" just about everybody. In his defense, the context was Cheney cordially welcoming him to the vice-presidency and Blair House. He went on to say he didn't agree with him, so there's that sliver of decency.
But still, come on...
Trump’s private counsel and US Attorney General Barr stated, "The president does not have to sit there constitutionally and allow it to run its course. The president could terminate the proceeding and it would not be a corrupt intent because he was being falsely accused."
IOKIYAR. The One Rule.
It’s still morning, but for some reason I’d like a large pour of Scotch now.
