Yes. And I don’t doubt that that’s the plan. None of the current candidates are electable and they know it.

E. V. Debs received almost a million votes for President in 1920 while he was in jail, so I suppose anything is possible.

...i guess if a felon in Florida can vote...he can run for president...even under house arrest in Mar-a-Lago...

 

Judge rules Florida can’t block felons from voting, even if they have unpaid fines

this is unfortunate.

 

 

 

CNN Uncovers Evidence Hero Dog Sniffed Dozens Of Butts Back In College

 

article-5036-2.jpg

 

https://babylonbee.c...g-sniffed-butts

 

Everyone praised the classified "Hero Dog" for taking down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

 

Everyone, that is, except CNN, who quickly searched through the dog's internet history and college yearbooks. Sure enough, CNN found a picture of the Hero Dog partying at obedience school. In the picture, the dog is seen sniffing a butt without consent.

 

"Oh yeah, good old [redacted]? He was nuts!" said one German Shepherd who attended Old Yaler Obedience School with the hero dog, according to a CNN report. "He was always sniffing any butt he could find. Cats, dogs, humans, you name it. He didn't have a preference. He identified as pansniffual."

 

Democrats immediately called for the dog to be court-martialed and for the death of Baghdadi to be overturned.

I found it quite funny that the fans at game 5 of the world series booed trump horribly when he appeared on the big screen. How was this not 100% expected? https://www.foxnews....ell-lock-him-up.  Sports fan are always hilariously brutal. 

 

It made me notice that Trump is rarely seen in public outside of controlled rallies and press briefings.  Seems to be a noticeable change from past presidents - especially presidents campaigning for re-election. You'd expect an incumbent to be seen eating a corndog at the Nebraska State Fair, glad-handing at local coffee shops, kissing babies at the farmers market.  I doubt Trump will make these sort of public campaign appearances once the 2020 campaign gets into full gear. Only controlled rallies and events where he can be certain of a pro-trump crowd.

I wouldn't put too much thought into that. None of those things ultimately matter come voting day, so I doubt he wants to waste his time eating corndogs.

Trump does insulate himself from people or events he dislikes. He has virtually abandoned the traditional press conference, preferring the informal press gaggle in front of Marine One. The din of the helicopter blades in the background allow him to listen selectively to questions and leave at any time. As a veteran performer he appreciates the theatricality and sense of urgency the helicopter in the background makes.

 

But as the evidence for impeachment piles up this week it will take more than theatricality to save him. Trump doesn't even seem interested in mounting a strong defence--it's mostly nit-picking procedural complaints and the usual FOX News whining. 

 

It's a very sad situation. Nobody wins with an impeachment.

It's the American system of democracy and government that wins with the impeachment. Trump is so venal, and his actions are so illegal, that his removal is demanded by the US Constitution. Either you hold that as your guiding principle, or you are willing to let one man ride roughshod over all the laws for his own benefit. If impeachment is successful, it may be looked at as how the system worked; protected itself against its own destruction.

^Well, yes, the system itself wins. People's reputations, not so much.

 

But it is remarkable to think about the process unfolding exactly as the founders envisaged (feared?) it would over 200 years ago.

 

As for the latest Dem polling, Sanders, Biden and Warren continue to battle for top spot, Buttigeig is fourth at 10% and the rest are at 5% or below so more or less what it's been all summer.

Trump doesn't have the luxury of improptu public appearances due to the frothing vitriol against him by unhinged leftists. Some antifa freakshow would try to kill him.

America is still recovering from the damage caused by the Tan Suit Fiasco.

 

i think security issues prevent most of that.  for obama or clinton or the bushes too.

 

Nixon famously met dazed protesters in the pre-dawn hours shortly after Kent State.

 

A famous photograph captures the next scene: Nixon in suit and tie, the ski-nose profile tilted slightly forward, a handful of sleepy-eyed demonstrators listening in shock and dull amazement, maybe wondering what drug could have produced such an apparition, as the President reprised his press-conference triumph for an early-morning audience who, stranded on the Mall, hadn’t watched a moment of it.

“I said I was sorry they had missed it because I had tried to explain in the press conference that my goals in Vietnam were the same as theirs—to stop the killing, to end the war, to bring peace…There seemed to be no—they did not respond. I hoped that their hatred of the war, which I could well understand, would not turn into a bitter hatred of our whole system, our country, and everything that it stood for. I said, ‘I know you, that probably most of you think I’m an SOB. But I want you to know that I understand just how you feel.’ ”

 

 

The Secret Service can provide safety for just about any situation the President decides to place himself in. 

 

Trump dislikes mingling in public. He's a notorious germophobe of course, but more importantly he's genuinely disinterested in the lives of common people. He sees other people merely as potential resources to consume.

Pretty much every President ever has thrown out a first pitch in the World Series. And certainly would if it was in D.C.  This is simply a case of Trump only appearing in controlled situations like his rallies, because his fragile brand of narcissism requires that he be insulated from the real world as much as possible.

if your measure of a president is if he will throw out a first pitch then that’s fine for you I guess.

I think his meetings and summits at the white house that go mostly unreported are far more important to the American people they help.
