Political fig leaf of the WH.

The death penalty proposal doesn't help, all those cary ones will go on a rampage anyhow cause they don't expect to survive. Just a variation of the Muslim suicide bombers.

I believe he means every word of this bit -
"ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty, & that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay"

except he will determine that those opposed to him are the ones that are commiting hate crimes and will not let pesky trials slow down the executions of his enemies.

Obviously the current president has no idea how to effectuate any of this electorally pleasing but hollow rhetoric. But I don't think even his people have the slightest clue what that would require (or how to make it happen).

bob, may I suggest you rephrase the second sentence? How about “I don’t think his people even have the slightest clue..”? :lol:

The "Schoolhouse Rock" infomercial titled: "I'm Just A Bill" talked about a bill dying in committee. Looks like this is where Mitch's 'thoughts and prayers' strategy gets working again.

DAMN YOU!!!!



I'm just a bill
Yes I'm only a bill
And I got as far as Capitol Hill
Well now I'm stuck in committee
And I sit here and wait
While a few key congressmen
Discuss and debate
Whether they should
Let me be a law
Oh how I hope and pray that they will
But today I am still just a bill


Now it's in my head!

I believe he does, I also believe that "when" he loses the election in 2020, just as Michael Cohen said, he will not leave office peacefully. He's tasted ultimate power and he likes it. How many times has he tweeted or said "Your favorite president, me!" His arrogance and conceit are off the scale!

Obama had the rank and privilege of a king. Your Favorite President, however, is not getting his due to Democrats aka Socialists, liberals, Clintons, illegal immigrants, the Squad, NanChuck, whatever, despite overcoming all these obstacles and accomplishing more than Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, FDR, and all the rest COMBINED.

If Trump wants a crowd that rivals Obama's inaugural crowd, I think he'd get an outstanding turnout to watch him being frog-marched out of the White House!

For fact fans:

There were 296 Americans killed in mass shootings during Obama's 8 years in office (or his reign, if you will).

That's 37 per year.

There have been 254 killed during Trump's first 2-1/2 years in office.

That's about 102 per year.

Thanks, Trump!

I think his problem is that there really aren't that many positive stories out there about him, and there won't be, as long as he spends all his time watching TV and lashing out at people.

Colbert will have a field day with this. It's almost unfair that his writers don't have to be very creative. I remember when comedians were sad when Dubya departed the White House.

Okay lets play that game-32 in 8 years is a hell of a lot better than 256 shootings in 216 days.
