    So he would trigger an article 5 incident to apease his ego? I hope one of is multiple cases gets him locked up. And I don’t care where, as long as it means he isn’t in office.

      It’s worse and more specific than that. He’s basically saying “Russia is welcome to trigger an Article 5 incident, because I won’t respond to it”.

    Why do I have a feeling that Putin told him to say that. It’s just too convenient for Trump to say that after that Tucker interview.

    Like, am I imagining things? It’s pretty clear they have communication, right?

      Oh no, they’ve been communicating since before 2016. Just look at the changes to party platform for the GOP that year regarding funding to Ukraine. The new policies, which came directly from Trumps people, reversed course on Ukraine and basically adopted pro-Kremlin positions. And it was out of left field…on alot of policy positions, they didn’t comment on shit or even have fully developed positions…but on Ukraine they have a very strong and very pro-Kremlin stance.

        Absolutely. For anyone who’s not familiar with Seth Abramson, he’s written three enormous books sourced from major news media piecing all of it together in excruciating detail. Here’s an interview about one of them for some flava.

        TL;DR Donald Trump is 100% colluding with russia and has been for well over a decade. There’s not a question about it. It’s a tower of concrete facts.

          There are soo many rabidly anti 2a liberals who don’t understand this. The cognitive dissonance when you point out that they are setting aside a key right and putting their faith in police and other authorities to fight fascism when they currently can’t be relied upon to NOT routinely discriminate and persecute leftists and minorities in a normal political climate.

    Just when you think the MAGAzis and their sprayed clown couldn’t get any dumber, here comes a public statement.

          Yeah but he was also a decidedly competent leader for most of that time. Trump wouldn’t be. He’d just try to cement himself as a dictator.

            Dying while in office would be the best case for him, since he’d have immunity while in office. Otherwise he’ll die in prison.

              Him dying in prison penniless without ever taking office again would of course be ideal for the rest of the world though, or at least the parts that are worth anything…

    Every now and then trump says something where I think surely that had to have been taken at least slightly out of context, but nope, it’s practically verbatim. Every single time.

    Americans really need to bash their elected representatives to invest in public schools and free/affordable higher education. This muppet already happened, but maybe it’s not too late to save the upcoming generations from another one.
