      Media needs to leave this child the f**k alone. SHE is not and never has been a public figure; just a kid trying to work and complete here education like any other 19 year old. She treated the interloper with more class than he deserved.

          She was very smart to take that gap year. She will have a much calmer time than she would have a year ago. The media will get bored not finding anything to report, and her fellow students will accept her as one of them. She did handle that reporter with class….but that is the way of the Obama family!

    ‘Go back to India’ — Chicago CEO goes public with racist taunts he receives
    Heidi Stevens
    Balancing Act

    When President Donald Trump went off-script Tuesday to defend Confederate monuments and the hate groups who love them, Chicago executive Ravin Gandhi had enough.

    Gandhi, founder and CEO of GMM Nonstick Coatings, a global supplier of coatings for cookware and bakeware, penned an op-ed that night for CNBC, where he routinely contributes business and political commentary. It was published Wednesday morning.

    “I recently told the New York Times I was ‘rooting’ for certain aspects of Trump’s economic agenda,” Gandhi wrote. “After Charlottesville and its aftermath, I will not defend Trump even if the Dow hits 50,000, unemployment goes to 1 percent, and GDP grows by 7 percent. Some issues transcend economics, and I will not in good conscience support a president who seems to hate Americans who don’t look like him.”

    The reaction was swift and demoralizing: Bigoted tweets and emails rolled in by the dozens.

      The governor would have blood on his hands if he proceeds. Through DNA analysis it was found he COULD NOT have committed the crime although he was sentenced to death. I read last week the governor was going to execute him anyway.

What I am really against is If One choses to use the Public Domain/Airwaves, be that Internet, TV, etc…..imho, then That venue or entity must be subjected to Public access……for comments, & their Financial contributors & supporters, Etc must be publicly known too.

      I’m with you Nena, it is a very slippery slope. And with the GOP in charge, who knows what group they may try to shut down next. I’d much rather see 40,000 demonstrators chase them from public spaces than seeing that public space closed to them.

      Have to admit I wanted to throw something at the radio this afternoon when I heard Dave Barrett on @CBSradionews intro FUBAR’s trip to AZ by saying, “the president is busy today…” I swear that these announcers NEVER said that about PBO, who was *actually* busy every day, unlike the laziest creature on earth who currently occupies the Oval Office.

I mean once in a while I’ll ask you for a victory or two during football season, or I’ll ask for the winning lottery numbers. But in the grand scheme of things I don’t ask for the really big stuff all the time. But please universe, can you find it in your heart to release the pee tape to the world. Thank you, I know you’re busy doing more important things so I won’t take up any more of your precious time.

There could be video from Trump gnawing on the bones of dead people and it wouldn’t change anything, would it? He’s complete scum and Trumpaloons and the GOP don’t seem to care. Sure, Senators seem to get their feelings hurt now and then but they’re morally and functionally paralyzed. It’s a stunning moment in our history.

    Thanks JER, meta, and Nena for keeping us updated on Malia’s move to Harvard, with her parents in tow. 🙂

    ICYMI… I’m pretty sure I posted this here in January (before darkness descending on America and the world), but it’s such a great story about Malia, so re-posting now.

    So glad to see Malia being able to be carefree and mingle with her cohorts — college is such an eye-opening experience, and meeting new people is one of the great benefits of living on campus.

    • 81 CEB
      August 22, 2017 at 9:40 pm

      So telling that the guides assumed the blonde would be the daughter of the important American official. Meanwhile, Malia was involved, enjoying herself and not putting on airs because she was raised right.

        August 22, 2017 at 11:36 pm

        GE CEB.

        Interesting observation.

        I know very little about South America (except from a geography perspective, since that was my major in college) — Bolivia is the poorest country in South America, and along with neighboring Paraguay (which is the third poorest, just ahead of Guyana) shares the distinction of being the only two landlocked countries in the western hemisphere.

        Because of their economic status and relative isolation, my guess is that blondes are few and far between in Bolivia, so that may be why the native guides leaped to that conclusion.

        I’m impressed that Malia is adventurous and tenacious enough to commit to an 83 day excursion — a long time to commit to, especially if you have no idea what to expect over the course of nearly 3 months.

    if it true that mcconell, flake, and the homegrown demagogue are feuding, then great;

    but forgive me if, for now, I am not buying this whole story because the evil that republicans have demonstrated over time.

    what if the republicans are manipulating us to create an impression that mcconell and flake are “independent” and standing up to the homegrown demagogue … the sympathy vote;

      GM Nena.

      This is another example of MSM/social media stirring up outrage without offering context, for the clicks.

      As a Japanese American, I was stunned to see tweets about this topic last night because the tweets I saw implied that the sportscaster had been removed because of his race — which underscored the recent social media outrage that a Japanese racer won this year’s Indianapolis 500.

      But I think the reason Robert Lee won’t be broadcasting UVA home opener is because of Robert E. Lee and Charlottesville murder, not because of his race. Just a guess, but I think if his name were Takuma Sato (the Indianapolis 500 winner) and not Robert Lee, he would be broadcasting the opening UVA game.

      Clarification from ESPN:

    I liked Don Lemon’s critical comments of PP, a little too late but late than never, I suppose. A couple of Republicans on the panel pointed out that PP is still the same man now as he was during the campaign. Everyone acting shocked now … why???

    As for three McConnell / PP supposed feud – I think it’s a case of each deserving the other. Two peas in a pod … true soulmates. For all McTurtle has done to PBO.
    PP is b*slapping Turtle – sweet!

    So while all this drama is being leaked and played out in public, PP’S distractions from Russia investigation … I wonder which of the concerned party or parties are achieving their agenda – Mercers, Koch or Putin ??? Quietly behind the scenes.

    The article re: HUD is really troubling. From increased homelessness and voter suppression.

    Hillary Is Not Your White Savior
    Crystal Marie Fleming, Ph.D.

    …………………………………..

    I can’t believe people—especially black people—are still using this
    moment to push a tired, useless narrative about how much better things would have been if corporate Democrats remained in power.
    What a shame.Let me be the one to break the news: Hillary Rodham Clinton is not and never has been our savior. Hillary would not have saved us.

    see…some of us are just Edjumacated Fools.

    Who the PHUCK saw Hillary as their SAVIOR-except for the Blackademics who wanted to get their hustle on again.

    I can say…without equivocation…

    I can say…without equivocation…

    That Hillary’s choice for Attorney General would NOT have been the KKKeebler Elf.
    That Hillary’s choice for head of Homeland Security would NOT be throwing out people who have lived here peacefully..
    That Hillary’s choice for the EPA wouldn’t be trying to dismantle the regulations for..you know…clean air and clean water…
    That Hillary would NOT have taken us out of the Paris Accords…
    That Hillary would NOT have put in this den of vipers who seem determined to work against the Departments that they head.
    That the State Department would NOT be decimated as it has been under the Secretary of Exxon…
    That she would NOT be working to undermine Obamacare, and 30 million people
    would NEVER HAVE HAD TO WORRY ABOUT THEIR HEALTHCARE BEING TAKEN AWAY
    FROM THEM…
    That she would NOT be appointing right-wing judges to LIFETIME APPOINTMENTS where they can harm our community for the next 40 YEARS…

    NONE of what I’ve written qualifies me as thinking Hillary is some WHITE SAVIOR.

    This piece is just insulting.

    And, if you, after all these months, are still peddling the swill that there would be no difference between Hillary and Trump..Your degree isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
