    This is a direct quote from the Orangeutang.

    “I think had they not done it to me, and I’m very popular, they like me and I like them, the Republican Party, perhaps you wouldn’t have it being done to them, and this is going to happen with indictments, too. And I think you’re going to see that as time goes by, you’re going to see Republicans when they’re in power, doing it, and it’s a shame when that happens. I’m not in favor of that, but that’s what’s going to happen because that’s human nature.”

    From this article.

    Arguing that the other guy is in mental decline is such a weird strategy when your guy can’t put together a coherent sentence.

    Apparently Trump also thinks he’d be running against Obama in 2024?

        Oh no. I was often that kid, but because of neglect and abuse and ADHD. Solid C+ to A- student depending on the class, smashing it on tests and demonstrations of knowledge while doing like one out of every three projects and take home assignments. But I’m an autonomy maximalist hanging out with left wing extremists o_o

      I think it’s fun: using the old timey word for “spy” or “intelligence operative” evokes the old timey task of gathering documents and information and analyzing them to understand things related to politics or world affairs (especially since it’s a column/blog for a broader general interest magazine, that covers much more than just politics and news).

      It’s par for the course for him.

      Remember, this is the guy who claimed that Washington crossed the Delaware to take British airbases by surprise. He also stated that troops fought hard in the jungles of Desert Storm.

    I think there’s a typo in that headline, the “cognitively impaired” part should go at the beginning.

    The wonderful thing about all this is, whether we elect Trump or Biden, we’re still stuck with a brain-dead asshole who can’t string together a coherent sentence.

            I mean, he does know a couple of big words that he uses over and over and over again, like ‘tremendous’. He still can’t form them into a coherent sentence.

          Only one of these men has ever had to take a cognitive test.

          Biden has always had a speech impediment but is still sharp as a tack.

          Trump has pudding for brains, and that’s insulting pudding.

          I will concede “closer” to kindness but don’t tell me the man does not have compassion. Just listen to him speak and don’t both sides this, too. We all know trump is worlds away the asshole of the two.

        That’s because it’s false.

        Though I’d be impressed if Biden had the integrity to hold his own son to the same standards as the other Americans whose lives were wrecked thanks to the 94 crime bill.

          You mean like he already is? He specifically ordered a special counsel using the guy that Trump picked to investigate Hunter. Stop with the both sides stuff, it isn’t even close to true.

          From what I understand, he does. But I don’t think this will change your opinion.

            I think you know full well, regardless of what Hunter Biden has done or will do, he is never going to see the inside of a jail cell. It’s really nice that Sleepy Joe has at least been performative in pretending that there’s real justice here, but there’s not.

            Hunter Biden’s last name and his wealth will keep him out of jail. That’s how it works here in America.

          Trump straight up advocated for jailing 5 teenagers without trial or evidence, and he also condoned physically abusing people during police arrests. He’s a complete piece of shit who would be rotting in prison and a footnote in American history were it not for his father leaving him an ‘unaccountable’ amount of wealth.

            I’m not a Trump supporter either.

            One thing, though: “Their guy is as shitty as our guy” isn’t the great defense you think it is.

      If you can’t tell that one side is worse than the other then you’re in mental decline.
