How can the Trump administration call the House impeachment inquiry a "kangaroo court," yet block the testimony of someone (Gordon Sondland) who actually has POSITIVE things to say about him?

 

To me, by not cooperating with the House's investigation, they've effectively committed an impeachable offense.

 

How big of a narcissist does Bernie have to be not to realize he's not meant to RUN for president, let alone BE president?  He "tried it" three years ago and didn't get the nomination.  He's trying it in 2019 and this time, he's putting his health in jeopardy.

 

Bernie, God is trying AGAIN to tell you something.  Take.  The [!@#$%^&*].  Hint.

How many [!@#$%^&*] counsels does one president need!?

 

They are desperate to retain power at any cost. They are absolutely craven - and they always get away with it, as they will this time too. 

 

In other news, Trump is - surprise surprise - stiffing people on their money.

Much of the public doesn't understand this because they view everything in dollars instead of percentages. Republicans market as "oh, well people with less money are fine with their tax rate because they are paying only a few hundred dollars while the wealthy are burdened with paying millions" and lots of their voters believe this. There is also an idea that those too poor to pay taxes and who qualify for the EITC are somehow ok because they don't have to pay taxes at all.

LOL that CNBC piece got roasted yesterday.

 

By people who already know it's junk, true. I just hope the usual easily manipulated voters see through it.

I heard this on a local radio station yesterday. Not progressive or conservative and people were calling in laughing about millennials being blamed like WTF.

It's unreal to me how the Baby Boomers and the Millennials receive the lion's share of media attention (and blame) while Gen-X'ers are totally ignored.

Most millenials do not have much to save and whatever they do save isn't enough to slow economic growth. CNBC posted a budget online to made it look like people making $500k a year struggle, so it's a fairly wealthy leaning channel.

    • Of note in that Variety piece...     Guide, ay?
    • @Chris B Janet is top-tier supporting HW-- witty, a great gossip and holds her own. However, she is not an Alpha like Gina. And that's fine -- the Melbourne cast worked so well because it was this perfect complementary mix of women who act and react in unique standout ways. Janet works within that mix, but she's not the force of nature driving the show (Gina), nor the bimbo's answer to Blofeld (Lydia).   God, I am really going to miss Lydia! so entertaining.
    • ATL: I thought exact same thing and came here to post the same, regarding Drew vs. LaToya as being shades of Kenya vs. Porsha Season 5:  The two newbies having beef with one another while the veterans watch. This one falls flat though because they *both* look thirsty for the spotlight.  I am okay with Drew overall, but she certainly isn't a breakout star as Kenya & Porsha became. I could see her lasting another season and then fade way into oblivion a la Eva.    It's clear the producers are looking for the next "IT" girl and neither Drew nor LaToya fit the bill. Just my opinion.

Hmm, damage control?   
    • That would actually be a smart thing to do.   They could say that David faked his death because he had gotten into trouble or something. It would be nice for David to finally meet his son. They could even bring back Scotty and have him finally meet his brother.   I haven't seen any of Gregg Marx's work, but I'm sure he still has a lot of appeal
    • Y&R is dusting off old Phyllis/Abby antics for this Phyllis/Sally feud. With Sally’s threat to hit Phyllis “where she least expects it,” it appears they’ll pivot from Sally pursuing Jack to Sally going after Nick. Nick doesn’t have a story beyond Faith, and Sally/Jack has been poorly received (due to their own poor execution, of course—you can’t play a May/December romance like that these days without playing the necessary beats, or people will be grossed out). Clearly, folks are getting vaccinated (?) or guidelines have been loosened, as we’ve now seen Billy/Lily and Devon/Amanda lock lips.
