  1. I know James Wood is a nut, but good lord. I didn't know he was this far gone.
  2. And with his history of grabbing women no less! He's a shameless charlatan and he gets away with it to a degree that just does not make sense. If Biden is the nominee you just know Trump is going to call Him Creepy Uncle Joe at every turn.
  3. I'm sorry to hear that. I know what you mean about disengaging. I remember swearing I would hide in fiction after the election, but I just can't do it. So many people I know are depressed or anxious right now (i'm not saying you DD). I suspect what is happening in the country makes people more vulnerable overall, well except for the people enjoying it. I can't even give blood right now. They keep telling me my heart rate is too high, so I'm off to the doctor in a couple of weeks to see about anxiety meds. Not that I blame Trump for that of course. I just think the mood of the country is making those of us already vulnerable worse in some cases.
  4. Yeah, I think most of us here were so horrified by Trump's election because we knew this would happen. I'll admit that it's worse than I thought it would be though. The way people on our boarder are being treated is going to be a shame that follows us just like the internment of the Japanese. If someone had told me that could happen in modern America I would not have believed them even four years ago. The rise of antisemitism is of course disturbing, especially when it's happening in places like France. People just do not learn.
  5. I'm actually surprised those numbers aren't worse. I guess I just don't expect even 2/3 of people to be decent at this point.
  6. I can't believe people were actually wearing Aunt Becky masks. Fame really warps both fans and stars sometimes.
  7. 🙄 You have got to be kidding me. People are so stupid sometimes (and I don't mean Lori). I'm not a fan of either of these ladies, but I'm not wishing them a long jail sentence. I do think they could stand to do a small amount of time (6 months) in club fed to remind them that they are not above the law.
  8. I wonder if donors are waiting for Biden or just waiting to see who has the momentum in a few months? Good enough for me, I guess. We'll see how it shakes out.
  9. This is why I actually did think the whole thing could be an April Fool's joke. Not because I give a single frack who is playing Phyllis. I just thought they might prank us because it just isn't that important and I don't expect any kind of professionalism in the soap world. I'm not at all surprised that they dumped GT though. We've seen soaps do this so many times over the years. To the people in charge it's just business and they are ruthless. Look at the actors who have found out they were fired via the internet or the "Real" Greenlee ad campaign.
  10. He did do that! If that truth is offensive I'm missing it. Look how he treated these folks, with throwing them paper towels. When you disrespect people on that level, you have given your opponent those votes to lose. Of course, that isn't always true given how Trump has treated women and yet he got way too many of our votes.
  11. What stunned me is when people said JS damaged race relations. I'm not the self hating white person type, but what? In the age of Trump, how is that reality? The millions of white people who voted for Trump damaged race relations for a generation. JS is barely a blip on that radar screen. Sure, he gives the nutty racists at Fox something to point at, but they always find something, even if they have to manufacture it. Making an organized effort to recruit voters and listening to their concerns is not treating them like chattel or telling them how to vote. It's politics 101. When you ignore people and their concerns they look to the candidates who at least pretend they matter. That's a lesson Democrats should have learned, but it sounds like some in Florida didn't. If it's true, I don't care who sounds the call or where they do it, as long as someone listens and fixes it before 2020.
  12. So frustrating. Normally I wouldn't quote this guy, but really, is he wrong?
  13. He could easily be a high functioning psychopath. Hell, it's probably a requirement of the job.
  14. Me too, but I'm starting to get used to it in-between anxiety attacks. I really don't expect her whistleblowing to make a difference, but she's brave for trying.
  15. It's a lot like 2016, in that it seems impossible on the one hand, and yet you can almost feel history repeating itself. Many on the left are over confident again. There is just no way we can lose right? Look at how awful he is! Look at the poll numbers! I'll never forget how pissed I got at my husband for saying he thought Trump could win it a few weeks before the election. "There is no way in hell that's going to happen!" Well, "we" let the monster in the door and it's not going to be that easy to get it out again. Not just Trump himself, but all the hate and the erosion of Democratic norms. All of the things that helped get us here such as Russian interference and voter suppression are still problems. The only difference is that Trump is already in power this time. Of course, that doesn't even address the people on the far left who want to sabotage any democrat who doesn't fit into their effing revolution.
  16. We'll be lucky if Democrats don't mortally wound their own candidate before the actual election even starts. I remember the years when I looked forward to national elections with a sense of excitement. Now I just dread it.
  17. I'll believe if if it's still the story on April 2nd. Right now it still feels like an April 1st hoax. Not that I care much one way or aother since I haven't watched either show in nearly a year.
  18. Trump has a lot of policies that are in conflict with each other. That's what happens when you rule from a place of malice and spite.
  19. But is it really the purity Olympics to say that stuff like this isn't ok? Maybe men could just learn to keep their hands to themselves. I hate that women might have to accept this just to be rid of a monster like Trump. And yeah, you bet I would if that's the choice, but I'm not going to like it. Writing in “The Cut,” Flores said she was standing at the side of the stage at a campaign rally when she felt Biden approach her from behind and lean in to smell her hair. “He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head,” Flores wrote. “My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused.”“I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me,” she added. “My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.”
  20. Yeah, I would be disgusted too. Trump has nearly 20 women accusing him of grabbing them, but Democrats just don't get the same leeway, so I do see this as a potential problem. I guess we'll see. I'm terrified of an October surprise.
  21. I hope this is not true, but if it is true, I'm glad it's coming out now. We'll see if there are more in the coming weeks.
  22. I'm only sorry criminal charges aren't on the table.
  23. Plus Netanyahu is always praising Trump. When so many people hate him here, that's going to have an effect.
