I don't dabble in the dark arts or the dark web, and I must admit I'm not up to snuff on Quazy conspiracy theories, but I do find Quid's links to alternative facts and alternative truths entertaining, if not at all relevant or enlightening.

The notion that one can express a worthwhile opinion in a single sentence is absurd.



wink, wink

Did you ever stop and think (a novel concept for you I understand) that if we wanted to read Trump's twitter ramblings we'd go to Trump's twitter page?

Government of the Republicans, by the Republicans, and for the Republicans:

But this is only the 2nd most absurd thing out of the Trump administration today.

Any doubt that the poor white vote is what cost HRC the election?

Yes, Luee. Plenty of doubt.

While it is very clear from both exit polling and looking at county-level maps that "poor white vote" - or more to the point, those without a college education - voted for Trump aplenty, it is equally clear that (a) without the Comey letter, Clinton would have won; (b) without the single-minded focus of the media on that letter, Clinton would have won; (c) without the Russians' efforts, Clinton would have won; (d) without the sexist belief on the part of Republicans (59%), Independents (37%), and Democrats (11%) that they do not want to see a woman be president, Clinton would have won. It's even possible that Clinton's campaigning in those areas of 3 states, she might have won.

It was not one thing. It took all of them.

Today's winner in the "How absurd can we be?" contest among Trump administration dicta:
https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/03/politics/trump-administration-aclu-deported-parents/index.html

It is good to hear that the judge slammed the Trump administration's position that the ACLU, et al, should be responsible for finding the deported parents of the stranded, kidnapped kids.

The administration has maintained that any parents deported without their children willingly left without them. Attorneys and immigrant advocates, however, have questioned whether the parents fully understood what they were agreeing to.   
-- from the article

Attorneys, immigrants advocates.... and persons who have ever been parents.

More bullshit from the Trump minions.

    I’m guessing that deep down inside Trump views even his precious ‘base’ with a certain amount of contempt. How else does a con man view his ‘marks’? As suckers, of course. He knows that he sold them a bottle of snake oil, and he probably thinks that they are fools for having bought his pig in a poke. I’m also thinking that this is part of the reason that he despises Obama so much. He knows that millions of Obama fans truly do admire Obama, and that probably chaffes his ass because he knows that if his fans ever discover that he bamboozled them they would turn on him en masse in a New York minute.
