If Republicans will impeach a president for getting a blow job in the Oval Office, why won’t they impeach a president for giving one in public?

Other quote that made me laugh: "It's not high treason, it's 'alternative loyalty'..."

"Trump Wonders Why U.S. Should Always Have To Defend NATO Allies"

Whatever Putin paid to get dirt on Trump was the best money that Russia has ever spent.

HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS: Let's lower the bar for impeachment proceedings so we can use a blunt tool for political pressure.

HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN: Oh boy, I've already checked out of this job and that sounds like a no-win situation for me so cool story bro.

HOUSE DEMOCRATS: What's that, you say? Set a precedent for a lower bar for impeachment? Hmmm. Cool. Cool cool cool.

WTAF?

Why, why, WHY???

Was nothing learned from Vietnam & Iraq? When the US feels like bombing somewhere, stop, think, and don't bomb FFS...

BREAKING: New narrative for the "law and order" and "if you want to be in this country you can't have avoided any laws" party. New narrative as follows: Convicted of 8 out of 18 charges is the innocent being vindicated.

Yeah, they'll spin it for sure... and he wasn't even found not-guilty on those other 10.

Don't worry he will just pardon him.

That’s where the state crimes come into play.

But there are some constraints that suggest the president should proceed cautiously. Many offenses — including some of the financial crimes included in the Manafort indictment — are also crimes under state law. The president can pardon only for federal offenses, and defendants counting on a blanket pardon may find that it does not cover all potential prosecutions.

From https://www.vox.com/2017/8/29/16211784/paul-manafort-charged-guilty-trial-trump-pardon-power

Also, I read an interesting take on blowback from pardons. Depending on the details, a pardon might actually make someone able to be compelled to testify under oath about their crime (nullifying the use of the 5th) since self-incrimination is no longer an issue in that situation.

If only it mattered, as Trump said he could "stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody" and not "lose any voters."

If I lived in that state, even if he were running against someone less "please disappear from public life" like Ted Cruz, I'd want to vote for Beto based on this: https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/a22802372/beto-orourke-national-anthem-defense-of-journalism/

I don't know what more it's going to take for the GOP to cut their losses. I don't think even the pee-pee tape would matter now...

To yinz in red states, or have red family/friends/cow-workers: how are they feeling about the president? Is there any tide turning? Or are they digging in? How do they see the other side?
