    Absent from this piece is any explanation of how Trump threatens the rule of law any more than some of his predecessors did. Kind of an important part of the argument, isn’t it?

    I’m one of those persuadable Trump skeptics. I’d prefer he wasn’t the president. I’m not a fan of most of his behavior. I am open to the possibility that he’s doing irreparable damage to presidential norms and expectations of conduct.

    But it would take an extraordinary case to convince me he poses such a unique danger that I should generically vote for politicians with whom I vehemently disagree just to restore order. This piece comes nowhere near making that case.

    Boot doesn’t even try to make it. He just assumes you agree with him and then complains that people aren’t doing enough. And, he doesn’t bother addressing the problems with Democrats and their policies or why his concern about Trump should override those problems.

    This is a recurring theme with anti-Trump Republicans. It’s nothing but a rant. It’s not persuasive and makes the person making the argument seem unserious.

    I honestly think a lot of these guys are subconsciously driven by not wanting to be associated with “those yucky people.” It’s disappointing to see presumably rational and thoughtful writers sink to this depth.

      Trump’s election did not create their wretched personalities. They already existed.

        This is what you get when you are ugly AND stupid. When someone as pathetic as Tur exudes nastiness I look at them very closely. She was born to have rhinoplasty. At 45 her nose and chin will meet. Having a big old schnoz is fine but not when the tip is headed south like her tits. She has the sex life of an alley cat. She is dumb. She comes from an unfortunate and highly disfunctional family. But yet she sneers. We ALL have faults therefore it is ignorant and extremely unwise to put yourself out there like you don’t have any.

        The men in this sneering episode? Soft, doughy, balding and vapid. And dumb. This is why they can relate to Tur(d).

    Peeps we are at an impasse. Republicans are worthless. If I was senator/congressman I would be holding DAILY Press Conferences detailing what is going on (Obama/Clinton emails prove illegal conspiracy to spy on Trump, Obama/Clinton laundered billions, Judges appointed by BILL CLINTON and Obama conspiring against Americans illegally to circumvent laws to support political agenda that hurts this country, Republicans WORTHLESS and can’t keep word re: Anything but especially repealing obamacare, Media WORTHLESS, Most Americans WORTHLESS & Stupid, Children are STUPID being raised by STUPID parents, and so on and so forth) trying to WAKE UP THE WALKING DEAD and helping Trump. It is clear that their (i.e. everyone but Trump) agenda is to use Hitler tactic of big lie and just lie, lie lie and do nothing making sure Trump gets as little done to help this country as possible. Until we the citizens make it clear to Republicans that we will VOTE THEM out for their conspiracy to do nothing and hurt us because they want business as usual vs. trying to fix America before she becomes the shithole country France, England, etc., etc. have become they will continue to do nothing, retire, talk trash. I think we have big problem thinking Trump can do this on his own because he can’t. Idiots and Criminals rule and that is what drives countries down toilet. When truth becomes fiction and idiots become leaders hope becomes a pipe dream. Until Clinton and Obama AND all who conspired with them (John McCain you fuckhead I am talking about you too) are held up as liars and traitors we will not be able to talk truth in this country. Until that happens we are spinning in the gerbil wheel….

      Oh I remember “manners” classes in high school home ec. We had tests on place settings and proper napkin folding. I never needed any of it. I do have tons of china, chrystal and silver stored away hoping one day they’ll be worth something on eBay or I’m hopeless. Will never be a Queen 😛

    • mcnorman says:

      Lovely setting. Are we having wine, champagne and an apertiff along with the water? 🙂

    • elliesmom says:

      When I was in Brownies, our leader used to form us into two teams. She’d put two large sheets on the floor and have each of us pull a card with the name of part of a table setting on it. She’d blow a whistle, and we’d all have to move as quickly as we could to put ourselves on the “tablecloth” in the right place. Flatware and dishes would lie down. Glassware standing up. The first team to get it right won a prize. By the time we flew up to Girl Scouts, we could have set a table the Queen would be proud of. I remember we had a lot of fun doing it.
      Today I can set a formal table w/o thinking about it much. I was surprised when I invited our friends who are adopting the teen to dinner, and one of them asked me if I would pull out all the stops in setting the table. She wanted an opportunity to teach their new daughter how to make her way through the meal in a judgment-free environment. We had a lot of fun, and she did, too. She wants to do it again when she’s old enough to have wine in the right glasses.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Gabe Kaplan has a hilarious routine about the time he was told to set the table and he used sanitary napkins because he was told they were for special occasions.

      Giving out the phone number of a mental health hot line and representing it as her personal number, falls into the category of “Moral Turpitude; grounds for dismissal even with tenure.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Didn’t she say it was the university President’s number and dared people to call it to have her fired ? Still, she’s an unpleasant person who shouldn’t be working with our children. Remember the nasty lady at Mizzou who called for muscle to throw a student journalist out of her “space”? That school suffered immense blowback.

      All I could think of is why didn’t Greg Craig’s parents just name him Craig? Am I the only parent in the world who runs kids’ names/initials through the wheels of bully-taunting cycles of school torture? My 70’s boys were named after my favorite soap opera guys (Christopher and Gregory), gave them family names as a middle. When I had 80’s girl, gave her the very strong Katherine, so she could do whatever the hell she wanted to do with it in adulthood. Kay, Kate, Kathy, Katy, Katie…..she uses KT. She stuck with it after her all girl metal band scored a gig at CBGB’s in the early ’00’s.

      • Somebody says:

        You’re not the only one Denise. That’s why I had a fit about ALL of the grandbabies initials being EW. I lost, so that’s their initials.

        Cool fact, my middle child’s initials are MNW, they are the same upside down 🤣 She thinks I planned it that way, but I didn’t.

      When lawyers do things “abruptly” always listen for the sound of approaching sirens. It’s a dead – excuse the pun – giveaway.

      Does NY have a GOP challenger to whoever wins the Dem primary? This looks like a good year to run someone close to “normal”. Both parties can’t be on the take? Oh, wait, it’s NY. (yes, my birth state, so I can bitch 😉 )

    Good News.

    • DeniseVB says:

      In my day, the parishoners raised that “boodle” for the poor and displaced. As a teen I hated that my dad tithed 10% of his income when we couldn’t afford to keep me in the designer clothes the cool kids were wearing. 😛 Think about that when the Dems want to lower the voting age to 16. Though I did go to work and remember spending my first paycheck, $35, on a London Fog trench coat. I wore it out about 20 years ago, that thing is still not out of style.

      Gallup called us a few weeks ago and my husband, of the stealthy spam phone calls pick up kings, played along thinking he could finally tell Gallup he lurves Trump. Not. One. Q. About. Politics. Just toothpaste and sh*t paper brands we use.

      • lyn says:

        When Rasmussen called, I don’t remember a question about the political polls, but the Mueller questions were asked. My answers were: Congress should not protect Mueller, and Mueller will wrap it up within six months.

      “Bridget Phetasy . . . is working on her humorous self-help book, “Seducing Men Is Like Hunting Cows.”
      It’s a good sign when the book title cracks me up. Hopefully it will get more traction than, “Burned a hole in the jacket.”

    Even if you weren’t Roseanne fans 20-30 years ago (her first season ran 9 years), tonight ABC is running her first 4 reboots back-to-back tonight at 8 EDT. Same cast, it’s really surreal and still funny. If you’re on FB, join the closed group, Roseanne Obsessed, they really are!

    I wonder who else is coming. 🙂

    Oops, Henry Kissinger almost fell walking in.

    I looked up the china settings this afternoon. The giant gold charger plates are from Clinton (bling-bling) and seemed rather over-sized even for chargers but whatever. The china settings referred to as green are Babs Bush and are beautiful with three or four very sedate and tasteful patterns (one a magnolia but not sure it will be used). Anyway I thought using the blingy (non-Trump but Clinton) flashy as the foundation for the table was clever and would blunt the cheap wise-cracks. The prettier Babs plates will go on top.

    Meathead doesn’t seem to understand that President Trump would rather be surrounded by the American people who love and support him rather than the fake media who hate him.
    Last check 90% of media coverage of Trump was negative.

    I still have the former Obama and Hillary goofs on Cspan 2. Is it *live* anywhere else?

    • taw46 says:

      Yuck on her, boring. I miss Letitia Baldridge who was Jackie Kennedy’s secretary. They would have her on for these State Dinners. She was funny.

      I think FNC carried a little. Besides, the CSPAN camera squishes them up, they all look fat, lol. They will probably show the toasts, and then a little of the entertainment after dinner.

      Wilber Ross’s wife has had some really good work; IIRC she is in her late 60s.

      • Somebody says:

        Wow, she’s 66. I looked it up, I thought she was much younger and it was a May-December marriage. You think it was work or she just has good genes?

        I’m not too far from WP beach, wonder who her surgeon is?

      I bet it killed CNN to have to write a piece complimentary to Melania. They managed to get several digs in at the POTUS, though.

      • taw46 says:

        Kate Bennett seems to admire (and defend at times) Melania, but she just can’t keep the snide remarks out of her articles. And she won’t push back on the hateful comments from her followers, when they attack Melania.
