    But, WTF with those lower-case males killing people and shouting Allahu Akbhar? WTF does Allahu Akbhar mean anyway?

    Terrorism is easily being Used. 3 weeks ago 58 people were killed & 489 were wounded. We in the US feign Terrorism Amnesia.

      Soooo, what you say and what you do= who you are. These mofos are just ridiculous. Many of them, in all walks of life,are finding out that the deplorable one in the WH does not give them license to do anything. That 63 plus million who did not vote for 45 are everywhere fighting back and letting these cretins know that we are not buying what they are selling and that there is a cost for being such a horrible human being.

    Love listening to Harry and the guests. Not really feeling Melody Hobson. Her questions feel off.

      ‘Her questions feel off’

      You put it well, Meta. I couldn’t quite verbalize how she made me feel, other than whenever I started to relax into Prince Harry’s answer her voice would jar. I gave up part way through because I was feeling like she was interrupting too much, was, in a sense, not responding to the Price so much as reeling off a list of prepared questions. Maybe another day when I’m less tired I’ll give listening another try, as I’d really like to hear more of harry’s viewpoints.

      • October 31, 2017 at 8:54 pm

        For me, I think at times she was trying to dig too deep. I felt uncomfortable when she asked that woman to recite her life of crime. It was just the way she said it. And the questions put to Prince Harry were in some ways condescending and not always entirely respectful. I don’t know much about her so I don’t have an axe to grind. It’s just the way she phrased things and the tone she brought. I understand what she was trying to do but I just felt she was too inappropriately personal at times.

          October 31, 2017 at 9:06 pm

          I only heard her with the prince, and as I implied I wasn’t able to stick with it for long because several of her questions really jarred for me. Like you, I don’t know her from Adam (weird old expression), but she really didn’t click for me. Maybe she was ‘nervous’ – which would be understandable – but for whatever reason her style of questioning turned me off, and it seemed like whenever I was about to sink into Harry”s answer she would intrude. It really felt like an intrusion to me, so I ‘walked out’. If I feel more tolerant by the weekend, I’ll try to listen to all of it. 🙂 One of the good things about our TODvillage is that we can come back and revisit links easily when we have time or inclination. [Thanks, NerdyW.]

          • October 31, 2017 at 9:11 pm

            That is so true. TOD is such a great repository of knowledge. our Obama Library.

              Yep. Thanks to Chips Chica (whom I miss so very, very, very much), NerdyW, and all you other regular ” teaching fellows”, I’m more up on ‘world news’ AND U.S. politics than I’ve every been at any other time in my life!

                Mellody had her own financial firm and was often a money correspondent on GMA. She married George Lucas several years ago and they have a little girl via surrogate. She has rubbed me the wrong way because she seemed to be something of a glory-hound, wanting attention. She seems to put on airs. I noticed this at the Kennedy center Honors when Lucas was being inducted and in some of their joint appearances over the years. George Lucas left Hollywood to raise his 2 kids (adopted) away from that environment. He did not do the party scene, etc. When he and Mellody Hobson first got together, you saw him out more and she was always wearing something that she was falling out of. I did not watch the segment, but I know what meta means about something about her seeming “off.”

                  Hmmmm. All I’ll add is that IMO Mellody doesn’t seem to have learned from Flotus Michelle’s 8+ years in the spotlight. OTH, from your little history she may just be ‘being herself’.

    That was a great panel. Listening to the Prince, he is so down to earth, self assured, and has empathy. No wonder he Obamas and the royals are such good friends. Their life view is alike.

    GE TODville, good Halloween to everyone.

    Yesterday Mueller unsealed Manafort and Gates’ indictment, but not the court docket, which was released today.

    Open this tweet to see the thread and a link to the docket for some light Halloween reading (LOL):

    Here’s why Mueller and the judge consider Manafort a flight risk:

    And as far as sealed dockets go, there’s at least 4 awaiting orders to unseal (tweet from yesterday, and @BySteveReilly hasn’t tweeted since this morning, before Manafort/Gates’ docket was unsealed, so the sealed/unsealed status may have changed since then).

      Then, why was this mofo released on bail? Especially, when the corrupt treasonous thug has pleaded not guilty?

        October 31, 2017 at 10:11 pm

        GM amk.

        I’m definitely the wrong person to ask — I try to avoid courtrooms myself, LOL.

        Manafort/Gates will be back in court on Thursday… I wonder if some of those other indictments will be unsealed then?

          Just imagine what a strong message it would have been to send if this traitor was denied bail and sent straight to jail after that hearing. The turd and his minions would be panicking all over the place. Bails are denied all the time and if this case did not meet that criteria, then I don’t know what would.
