      The best revenge will be a landslide on November 8, in which “he” and his followers will be left for dead in the arena, like lifeless dolls. I can easily picture many ambulances coming to pick up the pieces after we get up victorious from the battle for the “soul of America”. #FORWARD

    Heartwarming story of the day!

      This same little critter asked Josh the same question about rigged elections yesterday. A prime example of carrying water for Trump by bringing this stupid stuff to the press briefing room.

      DF his masterful (as usual) reply to this pimple was the shiznit! My work colleague and I just watched that response here at the office and were laughing out loud when PBO started with “I don’t even know what that means”. Also loved his analogy and inference about people playing sports and people that lose then try to claim that they were cheated somehow. My translation of PBO: “But since the election hasn’t happened yet.. what chu talkin ’bout Willis? When HE WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED is up 10-15 points on the day of the election and then loses come see me then, all right FOOL? Until then PLEASE HAVE A SEAT! Next!.” I was telling my work colleague, PBO is clearly in his NFLTG AND IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY AND ‘M GOING ON VACATION TOMORROW, SO I’M REALLY IN NO MOOD FOR Y’ALL’S F#$%ERY AT. ALL! Mode.

      He’s helping Trump spread the nonsense that if he loses, the election was rigged.

    Hi, everybody! I’ve been out of sight watching The West Wing, AND enjoying the writing. 🙂

    This is my quick supper break between Season 4 and Season 5. 🙂

    • August 4, 2016 at 6:11 pm

      Wow, you are plowing through!

        Looking in again on a ‘ quick break’, Meta. Yes we are truly plowing along since Offspring is heading out of town soon and we want to watch it all together. Got to tell you though, some of it has been a bit “heavy” for me.

      VC, How u be? Aaron Sorkin (writer of west wing) is the master. Once you’re done with West Wing, you may want to check out The Newsroom which he also wrote, exec produced etc. I think all 3 seasons are on Netflix.

        Hi, PS, what’s cooking?

        PS, when I’m finished watching all seven seasons of The West Wing, I think I’ll need time to recover!!! This viewing schedule Offspring and I have set up has been intense. Phew!

        Newsroom is on Netflix, but on DVDs not streaming or atleast when I watched it.

  15. August 4, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    All the stupid ass media want to do is ask questions about Trump.

    • August 4, 2016 at 5:59 pm

      I am glad POTUS told the media, you have seen Donald Trump, why don’t you answer the question if you think Trump is fit to handle the nuclear codes. He told them that he made it very clear the other day what he thought when he said Trump is unfit to be President.

      Next time the right wing haters want to talk about what President Obama haven’t done for this country, I want them to tell me what have the Republicans done to make their lives better? Any jobs plans, any tax cut for them, anything.

      Lebron James went on tv before the NBA Finals, hay guys I just want you to know that the series will be rigged. Reporter ask James, hay Lebron if your team win the series are you still going to say it’s rigged? Folks let me say this, Donald Trump has lost all common sense, so has his supporters.

        Obama should have pointed out that, coming from Republicans, the definition of a “rigged” election means one they didn’t win.

    Jackass..he hasn’t brought anything else to the House floor why start now? How can we get this pimple out of office? I’m just wondering what/ if the other countries to the deal are going to do? Singapore’s PMs remarks about TPP at the Joint Press conference on Tuesday seemed to indicate that they were not going to be pleased to put it mildly. Can they band together and hold our feet to the fire?

      Right wing media is LYING and the mainstream media is going along with it. Kind of like they went along with Trump and the birther B.S.

      Only the political media “thinks it is still close”. Been saying for months – 27% is the most probable outcome for Trump. Be thousands of wives out there whose husbands think they are voting for Trump – “in his dreams”

    Might have been posted earlier – but if you haven’t watched it – Sen Reid answering questions after the Hillary rally. He will be missed in the Senate.

    Hope my link works!

    I’m glad POTUS slammed the Rs on the fake Iran story. I was very disappointed that Steve Colbert was flogging that story last night. I tweeted him a couple of times demanding an apology to Pres Obama for slandering him. Some great polls out today, especially the McClatchy poll and those #s from NH, PA, and FL.

    I’m so confused about this fundraising – Trump is claiming he raised it all – my understanding is the RNC raised a large part of this cash. Does Trump EVER tell the truth – quickly followed by – does the media ever report the truth
