I know you are having as hard a time separating facts from the other stuff as I am.
Absolutely. Which is why you haven't seen me making posts claiming that Trump is 100% guilty of colluding with Russia, or blackmailing foreign intelligence agencies to dig up dirt on political opponents, or defending Biden, or defending some other Trump target. What you have seen is me simply responding to your judgments because it drives me insane when people, liberal or conservative, speak in near absolutes or with authority as if their shit don't stink. Because even though I have my desires of what I want to happen, I also exist in reality where I can recognize that things tend to be a bit more fucky and don't go my way. So I'll wait to see how specific scenarios end up before stating I'm certain something is factually correct or not.
As I said, including policy or not, Trump's character and history before his candidacy speaks volumes as to what his intent is as president of this country. I've said it a hundred times already: I don't need someone on the news to tell me what to believe when the man's own mouth and actions tell me the majority of what I need to know to make a judgement.
I already disagree with the modern GOP ideology in multiple regards, so you're damn right the hypocrisy of the "party of law & order, morals, and family values" supporting that scumbag pisses me off. It's just undeniable proof that a large amount of Republican voters have very few principles beyond "ends justifying the means".
I know he's not going to get kicked out of office. As you said, the senate will never let that happen.
But fuck it, the GOP is seeing this presidency as payback for Obama where they spent eight years throwing wrenches into every little thing he tried to implement. And don't try to tell me they were trying to compromise and Obama just wasn't letting up. From day one of his presidency, the GOP congress stated in plain text to the entire country's face that they were going to prevent him from getting anything accomplished.
They took their gloves off and danced the fine line of the definition of the law utilizing every loophole possible to fuck up the political precedence and processes established up to that point.
If the GOP gets to play dirty without repercussion or accountability, I'm more than fine with Democrats evening the playing field and dragging this shit through the 2020 election to swing it their direction. It's straight out of the GOP playbook. Perhaps y'all remember the Benghazi investigations and all the tax payer money and time spent on them that ultimately led to _____________??? Or the investigation into the private email server that led to ___________??? (by the way, by your very own definition, these are facts, not me defending Clinton, unless you have a source showing that she was convicted of anything from the aforementioned cases)
They piled 'em up and it likely cost Clinton the presidency, as can be seen by the not-landslide (even though Trump painted it as such) election results (albeit, I'll happily admit she was not a good choice for front-runner anyway, strategy-wise).
So I'm all aboard piling up Trump's real, potential, or likely wrongdoings if it costs him the presidency. Good chance it'll backfire? Definitely. But I don't think we have much to lose.
Trump is a conman and if it was any more clear, it would be tattooed on his damn forehead. If conservative voters can't see it, that ain't my problem. But I'll happily do what I can to continue to point out the absurdity and hypocrisy of it all and I'll happily vote for a stale, wet noodle to remove that man from being the primary representative of our country and away from highest political office on the planet. Because I'm 100% certain a stale, wet noodle will have more tact, ethics, civility, morality, and yes, believe it or not, respect and understanding of our Constitution than that corrupt piece of garbage that currently occupies the office.
The rest of you can keep doing the Rudy Giuliani dance and pretend that it's normal and justifies his behavior:
“I’m not saying Trump never did anything wrong,” he added, according to the Post, “but there are other people who did things wrong, too.”
