We will all hold our breath for the scathing rebukes from the conservative factions who were apoplectic over Hilary's emails. :roll:

Rank hypocrisy is the default position in Trump's America.

Mueller concluded his investigation and handed his final report to the Attorney General. Personally, I think the AG should flip the whole thing to the public before anyone in Washington has a chance to read it and start the spin. The whole country is waiting for this. So, let it stand on its own and put it out there without comment or preamble and let the chips fall where they fall.

Rank hypocrisy is the defining characteristic of the left media, celebrity and party elite.

As much as I criticize AOC for some of the utter nonsense she's spews, I can get behind her 100% on this.

A few thoughts...

I have no problem with AOC’s suggestions by the NRA and GOP won’t consider it. Ever.

None of us know what is in the Mueller report yet, but I anticipate both spin machines will be in overdrive if/when it is released. Trump called for the whole thing to be released but I can’t imagine Barr does that even if he should.

GOP has no right to cry about emails anymore now that, I think, seven folks in this administration have been found to uses non governmental apps or servers for official communications.

There is enough hypocrisy to go around. Pointing a figure at one party does not absolve your own from the same thing.

Typical flakey Hollywood liberal.

I hope what she said was taken out of context or something. Otherwise there is no explanation for this idiocy.

Another Parkland casualty. :cry:

Hopefully this poor soul now has everlasting peace, though I can't even begin to fathom what her loved ones must be going through.

You are correct here.

As others pointed out though, it goes both ways. Bill Maher saying the n word and not getting fired for it immediately comes to mind.

I think you are both correct. The hypocrisy cuts both ways.

The right claims to be for fiscal responsibility. Yet, they don't seem bothered that we had a $234 billion dollar deficit in February 2019 (highest ever) and a nearly $22 trillion dollar debt overall. I have no idea how we can think we can continue to function like this.

The left claims to be the side for peace, love and sunshine. All I can say about that is from roughly 2008-11 they had the White House and a supermajority in Congress which means they could have literally turned the Pentagon into a giant peace symbol if they wanted to. Not only did they fail to do that, and fail to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, they EXPANDED the wars into Libya and Syria. How about all those drone bombings too?

As far as Trump goes, he clearly brings his problems on himself. Every single time it looks like he is about to turn the corner and start being sensible, he tweets out some new idiocy that leaves one in total disbelief.

At the same time ever since Hillary lost the election fair and square, the mainstream media and Hollywood establishment have been absolutely relentless in their vilification of him. They have been the sorest losers I have ever seen.

Say what you want, but Trump wanted it more and earned the victory. Hillary got cocky and arrogant and doomed herself.

In the end, we were screwed either way. 2020 probably won't be any better.
