^ That was pretty funny.

Re: Roseanne. What I hate about shit like this is everybody gets to feel superior and non-racist for a moment instead of looking deeply at their own flaws. Everyone has work to do. Some more than others, but no one who grew up in a racist society can be entirely free of its evils.

I hadn’t seen one minute of the Roseanne reboot, but I heard it was a great success......wonder if TBS/TNT or Netflix will pick it up?

The ignorant spews about Valerie Jarrett were no different than the ignorant spews that Jimmy Kimmel or any other laste night talking head spews on a nightly basis......or network evening news playing clips from the White House correspondence dinner......such a pathetic double standard!

I would love for NBC to reboot, Cheers ��
Norm walks in, everyone says -NORM- and it’s as if it never went off the air.

Hmmmm..... What that racist bitch tweeted was inexcuseable, and if other people on shows or dinners say something similar, they should be crucified too. Please show me similar discussions/links so I can begin the crucifixion process.

I think this is a big deal. I don't care about tv, don't do it, so all I know about the show is that Trump likes it.....which means it must be bad, imho. But I think we are living in a time where The Guy At The Top spews this kind of thing, so others think it is ok too....and it isn't. Ever.

Even Fox is not pushing back on this one!!

There's a rally for His Base soon. (Does he ever hold a rally for Other Americans?) Will he say "Very unfortunate about what Roseanne tweeted..."? We know better, don't we?

The countdown is on.....

Roseanne's Racism is the Tip of the Iceberg In Trump's 'Real America'
From someone who actually lives in Trump's 'Real America'

I think a lot of this has bubbled under the surface for a long time, but when the guy at the top behaves and thinks the way he clearly does, the surface breaks.

I know Trumpists who say "Sure he is a douche, but he is doing a great job with the economy and tax cuts and immigration, so that's the important thing.....", and I'm always arguing that if the guy at the top is a douche, then that is the biggest problem we face. There is a trickle down effect that will be felt by all. That's how Leadership works.

How many lies has he told at his rally as I type?

I used to think that Fact Checking (and debates) mattered in elections. Trump proved me wrong. He was a complete loser in all of the debates, he lied and lied his way through the campaign, and......it......... didn't.....fucking......matter.

And I'm so depressed about that fact.

I find it odd that someone who doesn’t “do” TV feels the need to crucify someone for something said on TV...FB...Twitter or whatever.

With a picture of President Donald Trump next to an orangutan, Bill Maher claimed Trump’s mother had sex with said orangutan.

While the Planet Of The Apes vs. Orangutan is a comparison, I was focused more on the Muslin Brotherhood. Christians are constantly berated and made fun of while Muslims are off-limits = double standard!!!

ABC was a CIA front for awhile, not surprised, Disney is all of that on roids...



There is an untold story about the ABC television network. It is about how a company in which CIA Director William Casey is a major player took over the network. The least of the questions this raises is whether Casey used his CIA position to help drive down the price of ABC stock, thereby facilitating the takeover.

Not to worry too much...the idiot class in the US hires dumb shits like Reagan, Shrub and Trump to fuck things up when things are going relatively well, then hires Clintons & Obamas to repair...

At least this has been the pattern for a while.....

BUT, the older, weirder voters that are doing this are dying off as is the meth and religion addled rural USA, so, as Mr Pinker says, things continue to be better, albeit at a pretty geologic pace...

What we gotta do is keep the efforts up and strive to minimize the damages these venal morons do..

I didn't "do" World War 2 either, but I can criticize Hitler.

so... steel and aluminum tariffs on friends and partners and allies but laying off china in exchange for ivanka’s trademarks

stinks to high heaven

Don't sweat it. Congress is on top of it. After all, that's their job.

funny! Looks like Trey Gowdey is trying to distance himself from the Benghazi debacle. Might be looking for a job on ABC? I could see him in a sitcom with a family of microcephalics

On a recent topic, I'm still shocked at GOP silence since those classified briefings. Nunes is up to something, isn't he? We are going to see it soon, right?

the plan is to keep pandering to the base and offer them the moon through absurd schemes and obsolete ideas. like salvation through coal mining.

basically it’s trump university + six bankruptcies, but at a global scale.

when the failure becomes evident he’ll blame someone else and the teslas will say it was soros/the cia/fluoride/swarthy utes: the soroastrian conspiracy.
