Bolton’s statement is going age incredibly badly.

I have the feeling a uniform is involved somehow.

Give us all a break, Susan Hennessey has clear caveats on her tweets: 'This would be extremely ugly if true' and 'Also keep in mind that if this is accurate'. Distort things much?

I hate to say it but it has to be said: Ailes harassed women, Jordan apparently looked the other way at the harassing of men. To the GOP, harassing women = meh, any sort of same sex activity is toxic. No one knows what else will come out on Jordan and that uncertainty hurts

Nothing. It's not being mentioned on Fox so unless it reaches a media storm like with the child separation policy, he'll ignore it and rightfully assume that media will move on. He only reacts to what he sees on tv.

Trust me, she's right. I could never get past the first one. Any time anyone brings up how great the series is, I ask myself really? Do I want to watch a series that had THAT?

Of course. A good head of hair and height cinched it for Gorsuch.

And conservative SCOTUS members will suddenly discover a complete aversion to existing precedent.

It's not the rain that gets people. It's the darkness and the unremitting cloud cover for 7+ months. Lots of people that don't realize they have Seasonal Affective Disorder find out the hard way that they do when they spend a year in Seattle. First year is hardest for most.

20 states is the best case. That presumes the court will stick to prior precedent but there is no reason to think that with Gorsuch, Alito and Thomas at all. Add Justice Pirro or whomever to them and it all depends on how much Roberts will care about precedent.

I loved Karen Allen in Raiders, she was by far my favorite character in the entire series and I was bitterly disappointed she wasn't in 2 or 3. Fierce & funny, both Marion and Karen Allen deserved better third acts from Spielberg than they got.

I think you overestimate the degree of belief involved for a lot of WH Trumpists. Sure Miller is a true believer but a lot of like Kushner, Mnuchin, Ross etc are just grifters with not much in the way of beliefs, they certainly won't risk paying a very heavy social price.

No. There is a line of basic human decency and the Trump admin crossed way over it when they deliberately targeted young children for harm. Of course Saunders and Nielsen are rejected for the non stop lying to cover up an abhorrent fundamentally anti American policy.

Some will say that Twitter won’t care about evidence that Twitter provably encourages misogyny, it’s not accurate. Even the biggest Silicon Valley players are waging war for the best talent and Facebooks reputation nosedive has seriously downgraded their ability to recruit.

Unfortunately that won’t help anything or you in the short term, really sorry you get covered in bile when the trolls notice your posts. It would be good to have quantified though to put pressure on Twitter to try harder to address the misogynistic troll problem.

I don’t think there is any doubt you are right, would make an easily quantified research project for a social sciences student. Take multiple posters with roughly equivalent credentials and # followers, have them post equivalent messages at same time and measure response.

Sasse, Flake, Corker, Graham etc don't have a single vertebrae between the lot of them. They certainly make Churchill's stand against his own party in 1930's look a lot more heroic, this bunch would have been hand wringing while Nazis goose stepped into London.

Wrong target. This isn't a Customs policy, this is WH policy, march and demonstrate there. Media won't show up for protests on the border but would for 100k loud people on Pennsylvania Avenue. Plus Trump himself is likely to do something stupid.

Come on, it's been 17 months of this, you can't be surprised when Trump admin officials just blatantly lie about something. Trump, Sessions and Nielsen are all just gaslighting everyone, there shouldn't be even a 1 second hesitation in recognizing that's what is occurring here.
