What's increasingly pissing me off about Reade are the comparisons to Christine Blasey-Ford. Ford was run out of her home with death threats. She testified under oath in front of the entire country. Reade can't keep her story straight and keeps bailing on interviews. Dr. Ford is being dragged back into the national conversation all because of this grifter and the cosplay socialists elevating her.

 

Agree.

If I were Kellyanne Conway, I would, at the very least, march straight into that Oval Office and tell him, in no uncertain terms, that the next slur he utters against my husband OR my kids will be his last.

 

OTOH, if I were Kellyanne Conway, I wouldn't be working for Trump in the first damn place.

Kellyanne Conway's biggest gripe is not getting accolades for being the first woman to manage a winning presidential campaign. She is a career political operative and Republican political operatives only care about advancement. She made it to the Oval Office and if Trump disrespects her family that's just something that she will accept to maintain her position.

I still think she and her husband are con artists. The ad he ran was effective but I just wish they'd go away.

I think it's deliberate. They are playing both sides so they can be viable no matter which way the wind turns.

Just had a thought that it could make for an interesting theater piece to have a play about a marginal Washington couple who decide to use a time of political crisis as an opportunity to raise their standing by positioning themselves to opposite power bases.  The twist would be that, by degrees their public opposing stances seep into their private lives and threaten to undue, not only everything they have built professionally but their entire relationship and marriage.

 

I'd write it if I were more interested.

Seth Meyers reminding Democrats and the media who recently praised GWB, that is was his presidency that lead to what we have now with Trump.

I've watched a fair amount of Seth Meyers this past year, especially in quarantine as the format really suits him. 

 

Anyway, this is a very depressing article about Trump's latest plans to gut the post office. There's been talk about how this will hurt rural areas, but what isn't mentioned as much is many Republican voters also sell online, and he's going to try to jack up shipping prices on selling sites up to four times the current amount. These people just keep killing themselves in order to hurt the rest of us. That's one of the reasons I feel so hopeless. Trump continues to have decent approval ratings and to be even or near even in polling no matter how much he makes clear his only goal is to ruin America for his own pettiness and pocket-lining.

The Republicans have been trying to privatize the postal service for many years now. Granted, it hasn't been as focused or lengthy as their efforts to privatize Medicare or dismantle PBS but they've been at toppling the USPS for quite some time.  Longer than they've been trying to destroy Obamacare, I'd say.

I agree, although this seems to be beyond privatization and more into Trump's rage at Jeff Bezos. And I guess stopping vote-by-mail.
