Anyone who got a dollar every time Drumpf backstabbed someone loyal to him would be buying Elon Musk to be their shoulder monkey, maybe buy a couple of small private islands, and possibly a few Congress critters on the side to make sure they never had to pay taxes on any of it.

Betrayal is basically his only consistent brand, folks. Wake the fuck up.

Hmmmm....perhaps the Lord will lead Jenna to the prosecution's deal-mobile.

They're not "not getting it"...they're purposefully being obtuse, making it seem like, "hey, you - everyday MAGAt - yea, you - he's being arrested for stuff you and I do EVERY DAY!" Getting them riled up about it because, after all, he's getting arrested "for them"...!

And Kemp gets ZERO passes from me - last I heard, he would STILL vote for the orange

pile of smouldering shit.

to be fair, not seeing obvious crimes that are happening right in front of him is kind of Jim Jordan’s thing. And also, “seeing” crimes that are not happening at all (by Democrats) is also kind of Jim Jordan’s thing.

He is one of that largest wastes of space on the planet.

Who ever thought Brian Kemp's whose deeply accented drawly speech made you think he was as stupid as he sounds, might have a quiet little set of guts going on with this and Duncan is right. Blood red state no more. Now get rid of MTG. Disclaimer: I am NOT complimenting Kemp for anything. Merely looking at the snake pit they all operate in and that that pipsqueak was one of the few to buck the Head Turd. That is all.

SMH, SSDD from those who should know better(looking at you, Peter Baker). If anyone calling themselves a writer and who still has a job at an actual newspaper, is bored, perhaps they should get out into this world and see how all those FORMER employees of FORMER newspapers are now making a living. Or maybe they could go to that little town in Kansas where a still independent, local newspaper got raided by law enforcement because they were being investigated for irregularities. They caused so much damage and heartbreak that the co editor of that publication died. So go do some actual journalism and emerge(maybe)from your jaded cocoon. That’s my rant for the day. I’m getting jaded because the right ALWAYS loses its shit. Nothing new about that either.

I think it is hilarious that they are giving Hillary Clinton crap for laughing about it. This from the EFF your feeling crowd--the anti-woke. Yah know, the ppl who shoot bud light cans in lieu of a trans person and faint over men in pink shirts. These professional pearl-clutchers need to get bent. We suffered for yeeeears under The Orange Menace. Heck yeah, I am going to laugh now that Trump's crimin' has caught up with him and Clinton is more than well within her rights to indulge in a bit of schadenfreude in this regard. They know where they can kiss!

So sorry but have to be banal for just a minute. As a proud Buckeye, it is so painful to watch Gym Jordan, especially knowing what he didn't see that was happening to all those OSU wrestlers. Many of us Ohioans and Buckeyes are better than this. Sad!

The New York Times is the absolute WORST

Jenna Ellis is panhandling on the Internet. She'd better have a back-up plan.

Some civil war. Where are all the angry mobs storming the courthouses and statehouses or forming human shields around Mar-a-Lago and Bedminster? Where are the tiki-bearing frat boy Nazi wannabes? The Boys who are so Proud that they won't show their faces? The Oath Keepers cosplaying as soldiers in "stack" formation? The militias in East Bumblefuck preparing to round up the libs and put them on trial? I'll tell you. They're all where the cockroaches go when you turn on the lights.

With the New York Times, it’s about sensational “stories” and opinions to get their readers riled up. They’ve become the new National Enquirer. And don’t get me started in Maureen Dowd. Ugh. Oh-excellent piece, Jeff. You make more sense than the NYT. 👍🏻

We democratically inclined people have had to sit on the edges of our seats for the last 6 years as Donald Trump and the rest of the juvenile delinquents destroyed our country. It is nice that the tables have turned and it is the Republicans who are on the edges of their seats with anxiety. Why do bobbleheads like Kellyanne Conway get a forum in the media anyway? I had to silence her after a minute.

First, FANTASTIC ARTICLE!

Second, Jenna Ellis might have put her fate in God’s hands, but she better get her narrow ass to the Fulton County Jail and surrender. Her, Frumpy, and the other 17 named co-conspirators.

If any of them think for one second that Fani Willis is screwing around, they are sadly mistaken, and we MIS-INFORMED! That woman will have their asses picked up and arrested, and jailed.

Actually, I hope they done show up. Then this country will see how a criminal of the magnitude of this bunch deserve, and should, be treated. Southern Style!

As for MTG, Jim Jordan, and the rest of the irresponsible Trumpublicans currently serving in all the state and federal ejected positions. I sure hope you enjoy your last term of doing nothing. This is going to be it for all of you.

None of them have, or are, accomplishing a damn thing since the House Republicans gained the majority in the last ejection. It’s been almost one year, and there’s been NO bills passed through the House of Representatives to the Senate for a vote! They have accomplished NOTHING!!! They’ve bern wasting taxpayers money on unfounded false claims about Hunter Biden, President Biden, and Dr. Biden. This has reached the point of ludicrous.

The GOP still doesn't understand the idea of "in furtherance of a crime."

You are perfectly free to say "I think my ex is a demon from hell." You can even say "I think the demon from hell should be shot." What you can't say is "shoot my wife and I'll pay you 10 grand."

All speech.

Let’s just accept that Republicans believe lying, cheating, stealing are all ducky means to their awful ends.

Principles, morality... for chumps.

Mind-numbing the GOP feels righteously persecuted when their lies are shown to be lies.

Anybody remember when honesty and integrity mattered in America?

Sincerely hope that voters remind Republicans in a big way that they matter a lot.
