    Like, both of those things can be true, one doesn't cancel out the other.

    That being said, I'm not sure that he's a Trumpet.

    Speaking of what is coming to light and the FBI and DOJ briefing yesterday, Colbert had an interesting interview with James Comey today where Colbert asked why FBI director Wray hadn't made a statement. Comey's answer makes sense - here it is:

    "An anonymous republican asserts that they will not vote in favor of impeachment because they are scared for their life and for the well being of their family. Yes, Donald Trump is a fascist, despot and tyrant."

    All I'll say is this: if you can't stand the heat then get out of the kitchen.

    "Chris Stanton, a Georgia man who was charged as part of the Capitol insurrection, has been found to have killed himself, officials say."

    Didn't that happen yesterday or is it a new one?

    Hope it's a trend.

    @RobAnybody

    If that's true then that guy is no patriot. No surrender to jihadi John's and the terrorists militias of the world but "I'm scared of some unhinged right wingers". Not a backbone in sight for some of these Republicans.

    You're thinking of the Capitol police officer who was off duty and committed suicide, this report from today is about somebody who was actually arrested:

    Here's one article about the police officer who killed himself:

    This is what happens when you spend the days reposting whatever hits hot on r/politics, rehashing old stuff.

    Given America’s recent history you’re far more likely to be killed by a white nationalist than any Islamist group inside the flat 50

    There are so many weird words and phrases on English. Challenge coin being one of them.

    Isn't it a bit like a medal, but less fancy?

    It's a medal without the ribbon. Challenge coin is a meaningless phrase in every language.

    It’s something that came out of the American military, where commemorative coins would be issued to those in a particular platoon/campaign/whatever and then, in a “whose round is it next?” in a bar situation, for instance, anyone not able to produce the necessary challenge coin would pay for the drinks.

    That sort of thing.

    Listening to the Republicans in the debate is a bit like that band continuing playing on the Titanic. Until the bitter end I guess.

    It's fucking astonishing. Some of the specious arguments made by the GOP mongs beggars belief. Some do have a mild point, but to defend terrorism with whataboutism is just unconscionable by a sane person.

    I like how they are saying the impeachment is going to incite violence when the president is asking for peace.

    How interesting.

    My information, however, comes from other sources, being interests I maintain outside the gaming world.

    I agree it is far more likely some gun nut is going to kill you than any extremist but it is just not what you should be saying as a politician. They should be standing up against it.

    "Trump gives statement on violence to Fox News as House moves to impeach him"

    "Donald Trump gave a statement to Fox News claiming he did not stand for violence and asking Americans to help "calm tempers."

    "In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind," Mr Trump said. "That is not what I stand for and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You."

    He also called on "Big Tech" companies like Facebook and Twitter to help with the "peaceful transition" of power next week."


    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-fox-news-statement-house-impeachment-b1786879.html

    Why no video? His supporters will be claiming it's fake news.

    Note how he calls on "ALL Americans" - err, Donnie, it's you and your mob that caused this. Don't blame everyone else too.

    Also, it doesn't go far enough. He also needs to:

    a) Concede to Joe Biden
    b) State that the election was fair with no fraud

    Only then will tensions ease off.


    Also, curious that he does this now when he's about to be impeached. Does he think his statement will mean he's let off somehow?

    He's shitting himself, simple as that.

    It's frustrating watching this impeachment shit, the argument the supporters of impeachment should be making is simple; trump's undermining of the constitution is accumulative, it isn't just the words he said on the stage that day, it's the culmination of years of lies and rhetoric. He may start a civil war at any moment to satisfy his ego.

    No one can argue with that.
