    I still don't get why the left gives a shit about this. it was poor humour at worst.  
    Just pointing out the things that Hillary hasn’t done in relation to our current Team Trump Treason.
    I have often seen people bring up this video without the context of Hillary. I hate manufactured outrage no matter what side it's on. 
    I've personally never seen it brought up in the context of outrage. Only in the context of "look how ridiculous this is - can you believe THIS guy is the POTUS?! How embarrassing!"
    outrage was the wrong word. but the point remains. 
    Yeah sure, I guess.... I think it has meaning in a larger context. If this was a stand alone thing, that would be different. But this PLUS aaallllll the other shit is what creates a reaction, and in that sense, I totally get it. I mean, if Trump and Giuliani acted like sane, responsible, decent people the rest of the time and just had a funny skit or two under their belts, nobody would say boo, obviously. I don't think it's fair to expect people to completely compartmentalize everything they do.

    I know what you are saying, but I see it as if it wasn't a big deal then, saying it's a big deal now just because of how we feel about them as people 10 or 20 years later to me is disingenuous. it screams to me that people are looking for things to be upset/creeped out about (not sure why, there's PLENTY).

    I feel the same way when people talk about Trump's hair and weight and skin colour.

    I guess people really take note of that skit because it works kind of like a retroactive parody. Hindsight is 20/20, and when you watch that skit now it kind of reflects the ridiculousness of the relationship between those two in the positions they are in right now. I get how it draws attention the way it does... I don't think it draws attention completely outside of the comedic though. It's basically a weird and very noticeable example of life imitating art, you know? I don't think anyone uses this skit as a way of saying, "See? If they did this, they are scum!" It's more like, "They are crazy, and omg, look at this sketch they did way back when - it's almost like a prelude to the present!" There truly is comedy going on there, as well as a weird kind of irony, and I can't blame people for acknowledging that. Again, I haven't noticed anyone being upset about it.... Creeped out, yes... but that sketch was hilariously creepy back then, lol, not only now when people can apply further context to it.

    I’m not upset about it, I get the context and how it was done in jest, hahahahahahaha. All I was doing, Was making a comparison, per the thread title. I could give two shits and wouldn’t care if Ghouliani showed up in court dressed as a woman to defend Team Trump Treason. Were people outraged by this? If so, I wasn’t aware of it.

    I'm with you on the appearance factor. it cheapens the message. 

    yeah, again, outrage or even upset may be too strong a word. I guess I was just confused as to how much attention it got. I was like "this isn't even funny....it's not offensive....so why is this being shown constantly?".

    3D is D’ing because AG Rosenstein told Team Trump Treason to stop obstructing Justice and interfering with an ongoing CRIMINAL investigation involving the Team Trump Treason campaign, RNC and NRA and foreign money and assistance, from Russia and elsewhere. It ain’t no Miami Beach condo association board, dontcha know!
