Utterly absent from that article: any actual quote from Thompson that would make her a hypocrite. Just a chance to rail against a rich liberal.

Besides, she is my favorite filmed Beatrice so fuck off.

Here is the quote where she says she "flies economy".

Dame Emma, 60, was last month slammed for flying 5,400 miles from LA to take part in the climate change demo.

Lies and partisan propaganda.  Contains not a speck of news:  news here defined as all the relevant facts, coherently presented.  Best not to get news from a gossip network.

"Australia has the highest minimum wage in the world" - my no1 radio host.

Last night on my tv it was said that, basically;  "America is flying with Trump as President"..."high growth, low unemployment, business is booming, etc."

If he gets good representation, he may beat that rap - it sounds like he was pulled over for driving while Hispanic, from the story.

Mind you, it is unclear that the author of the story has English as their first language. either: "After administering and passing a field sobriety test, deputies questioned Torres..." I am glad that the deputies could pass the field sobriety test.

Asks the same question I did. Drew the same conclusion from the (non)response:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/05/06/trump-is-counting-russian-help-get-reelected/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.19a9925a076e

Consider how simple this question ought to be: Is it wrong to accept the assistance of a hostile foreign power to get elected president? A few years ago, any politician in either party would have responded, “Of course it’s wrong. Are you crazy? What a stupid question.” The very idea that anyone could assert otherwise would have been considered ludicrous.

But the Republican Party is now led by Trump. So being a loyal Republican means you have to take out your moral compass, smash it on the floor and throw the broken pieces into a fire.

Fuck that guy.

I used to cover Dov Hikind when he was crawling around licking Meir Kahane’s butt. He’s a dick and has been for damn near forty years in the State Assembly. Guy used to out city politicians as gay in the early 80s. Think about that in context. That’s the schmeckle you’re cosigning.

When a party’s electoral strategy depends on fewer people voting it means they know their policies suck for most people.
