    I flipped over, last night.....faux was not even talking about trump.....first, it was the bogus south africa story then jason chaffetz....zealot bulldog ex-utah congressman who went after hillary and obama 24/7 (benghazi! emails!) but then quit when it looked like he might have to investigate trump (chaffetz said it was to spend time with family but he now hangs out in faux’s NYC studio)....on faux, chaffetz was still discussing his bogus video of planned parenthood supposedly purchasing fetuses.

    these motherfuckers lie, lie, lie.

    He teaches acting at a local college, has had regular tvgigs, and works at TJs for the benefits.

    Can someone here explain this Gutfeld fella to me. He came up on my YouTube feed, jaysus it was violently cringe worthy. 

    Is this an attempt from Fox at a daily show or Bill Maher?

    How can they get it so wrong, even the canned laughter seems oddly fake!!

    If Fow wanted to go down the humour route surely normal program will more than suffice?

    When even Drudge is fed up with Fox, you know things are shaky:

    A segment on Fox News this morning where hosts laughed and joked their way through a discussion on political impact of terror was bizarre. Not even 48 hours since blood flowed at synagogue? Check your soul in the makeup chair!

    Yeah I guess that's what happens. I dunno, I'm of the belief that Trump (and by extension, the GOP and Fox News) is driving people insane. It's not just people yelling at the Tucker Carlsons of the world in restaurants. It's people banging on the doors of the Supreme Court after Kavanaugh was confirmed. It's people making death threats towards the rabbi in Pittsburgh for welcoming Trump. Think about that. A rabbi has 11 people murdered in his synagogue, and people are sending him death threats. Why? Because Trump called him and asked to visit and the rabbit said yes. I understand that Trump only wants to visit to be portrayed as compassionate and he's a total asshole for that. I get it. But sending death threats to the rabbit for allowing his visit? Those people that made those threats have been driven insane by Trump. And that's what he wants.

    I guess this is what happens when you preach a rhetoric based on fear, hate, ignorance,  jealousy,  and lies.....


    Yeah I guess that's what happens. I dunno, I'm of the belief that Trump (and by extension, the GOP and Fox News) is driving people insane. It's not just people yelling at the Tucker Carlsons of the world in restaurants. It's people banging on the doors of the Supreme Court after Kavanaugh was confirmed. It's people making death threats towards the rabbi in Pittsburgh for welcoming Trump. Think about that. A rabbi has 11 people murdered in his synagogue, and people are sending him death threats. Why? Because Trump called him and asked to visit and the rabbit said yes. I understand that Trump only wants to visit to be portrayed as compassionate and he's a total asshole for that. I get it. But sending death threats to the rabbit for allowing his visit? Those people that made those threats have been driven insane by Trump. And that's what he wants. 
    Trump is not the cause of the madness, he's the most obvious symptom.

    Perhaps it has more to do with living in a country run by a party supported by a minority of voters.

    Those in the majority are quite pissed, and it could get much worse if gerrymandering enables the GOP to hold the House with 7-10% fewer votes.


    Consider Kavanaugh was nominated by a president who received 3 million fewer votes than his opponent and confirmed by yes voting senators who  received 22 million fewer votes than  senators who opposed kavanaugh.

    Oh come on, don't start with this popular vote stuff. I don't like the system either but it is what it is and Trump and Clinton were both playing under the rules of that system. Really, that 3-million vote difference comes from California, where the democrat is assured to win and so neither Trump nor Clinton bothered to go there. 

    I've always felt that the electoral votes for each state shouldn't be winner-take-all. Why should Trump get all 20 Pennsylvania electoral votes when he barely won the state? It should be split. Each district of a state could have their own set amount of electors. This way, the candidates would have to campaign in Texas and California because simply putting a dent into your opponent's victory in that state would gain you some electoral votes. It's mind-numbing that presidential candidates never campaign in Texas and California, yet they'll stop in Scranton, Pennsylvania multiple times during a campaign. The whole point of the electoral college is based on notions such as "People in Manhattan are different than people in Idaho." That's fine. But people in Inner-city Philadelphia are different than people in Amish country, but their votes all go together.

    Nah. That sounds good and all, but he's the cause of plenty of it too.
