That's serious punching by Fetterman. It's good to see he is recovering well.

Plus those photos of him standing beside his wife are hilarious. He's so tall and such a loving guy.

You were so right. Have been with him from the beginning.

Legit bad ass.

Yes he is. We were all willing to wait and be supportive while he worked his way back to strength so this is really a joyful moment actually. Sure looks like he's mostly all the way back.

That's what Democrats need to do! Stand up and punch back.

Newsom's been doing it; Eric Swalwell and Ted Lieu do it; it's great to have John Fetterman back in fighting form...because we will need every bit of it from all of them and more!!!!

I love our governor Gavin and his wife Jennifer is amazing, too.

I am now thinking every judge involved in rulings against Trump, DeFascist, Abbott, or any of the other corrupt incompetent anti-woke MAGA sociopaths basking together under the banner of the GOP should sign “Yours in Service”.

DA Fani Willis has crafted the perfect response to any of the MAGA cries of “Lets go Brandon.”

Wow! E. Jean Carroll. A lone woman going up against the lying festering traitor criminal that has evaded the law his entire life has been an Odyssey. She has chosen to fight for her justice and rights in a courtroom, up against lawyers/liars who will do ANYTHING to make it look like E. Jean was the assaulter and not the actual rapist. It’s a nightmare and torture going to court, knowing that you will be dragged through the mud endlessly. She has withstood EVERYTHING and finally triumphed again and again. She is heroic.

...and thank you, Jeff, for metabolizing the news into digestible bites that I look forward to enjoying every day.

And lookie, she did NOT ever stoop to his level. The contrast between the two is pretty stark. He's so worried about his class status, well, he will never be in even a respectable class.

Kaplan has worked a lot of these tropes of cases. A force to be reckoned with.

Types! 🙄

So many thoughts. E. Jean Carroll’s victories are like butterfly kisses in paradise.

- Are there any less attractive humans on the face of the earth (excepting Putin&gang) than the co-conspirators of the Orange Cretin?

- The World Court needs to grab Abbott and try him for crimes against humanity. (Interpol looking at you)

It amazes me that folk like Abbott & what's his name in Louisiana that was nearly killed on a baseball field that come out of it,not grateful and empathetic but still mean spirited. It tells me there is nothing there but an empty shell and just another gop sociopath.

Fetterman is my senator and he’s a total boss! 💙

You have the pronounciation on Chesebro correct. His father was my music teacher (very nice man) and his band played at my wedding. So it is Cheese-bro....NOT Chez-bro. Thank you!

It’s a very satisfying feeling. And I want it to continue every fucking day for the rest of my life.

There's something so soul-galling wretched when nothing happens to people who commit these levels of crime so thank goodness. Get all the criminals in one courtroom in one courthouse in one location all at the same time. Use lots of graphs and charts that link them to each other and each crime designated in clusters on the link lines.

Expand full comment

Absolutely! I have a paralegal friend that used graphs and charts to link people and places in a huge case. The judge was very impressed and found it helpful to have everything in one place.

I truly love how you describe Merde A Lardo. Reminds me of how much my late mother detested the woman who had it built, Marjorie Merriweather Post, because Mom had taste and that rich old broad didn’t. Mom wouldn’t even buy Post Cereal (yes, it’s the same Post family), her disdain was that sincere. Although I’m sure Orange Mobster has had the old barn redecorated to his liking, seems like it’s still as vulgar and tacky as ever. He belongs there (until it’s orange onesie time). And you know he probably stiffed the decorators.

How sweet it is to read about the dumpster fire et. al. and smile. Now, what would really cap off the day would be if *Judge Chutkin would respond to what appears to be a sealed something-or-other from Jack Smith, to have señor dumpster fire chided mightily for continually shooting off his mouth*.

Actually, thank YOU, E. Jean for your fearless, persistent and ethical pursuit of justice against Defendant trump! You are a warrior and a hero to all women who have been sexually assaulted or, as in your case, rape. Thank you! 💗

tRump stuck in a GA courtroom during prime campaigning time? Such is the stuff of dreams come true.

And the folks at Meidas Touch put it right in a video about the Georgia filings by Cheese and Kraken when they said the reason most of them are seeking to get to federal court, and be separated from one another at trial, is that if/when DA Willis brings "the poll workers" (as they put it in their filing) to the stand in front of the jury, once their done testifying, the jury is going to want to stab all of them in the eye. And I'd be happy to hand them each an ice pick.

What does one do when

one runs out of co-conspirators?

Oh right...

Go to prison

Excellent, as always.

It seems like if you install an illegal barrier that kills someone, you should be charged with murder.
