"First, I want to note that this man is a supreme coward," Fair wrote. "When I approached this flaccid, sorry excuse of a man and asked ĎAre you Richard Spencer,' this pendulous poltroon said 'No. I am not.'"

She then proceeded to exploit "the full range of my first amendment entitlements by telling him that this country does not belong to white men."

The gym later notified Spencer that his membership is terminated "effective immediately." Spencer confirmed to BuzzFeed News that he had been kicked out of his gym following the interaction with the professor.

I assume he's "fiscally conservative", so horrible person.

56% say Trump loses touch with reality, LOL. Also, 37% say he's unable to distinguish between truth and lies.

As did almost all of its predecessors, including those which led to the resignation of President Nixon and impeachment of Bill Clinton, Muellerís investigation seems certain to drag on for years.

All that time, there will be a cloud over Trumpís presidency that will drain his political authority. Trumpís enemies will become less fearful and more vocal. Republican Congressmen and Senators in swing states and marginal districts, looking to 2018, will have less incentive to follow Trumpís lead, rather than their own instincts and interests. Party unity will fade away.

And without a united and energized Republican Party on the Hill, how do you get repeal and replacement of Obamacare, tax reform or a border wall? Trumpís agenda suddenly seems comatose. And was it a coincidence that the day Mueller was appointed, the markets tanked, with the Dow falling 372 points?

Capitalized on anti-gay bigotry to drive up conservative turnout for his re-election=piece of trash.

Where are you getting half? I see 48% opposed to impeachment, 45% for.

45% is about half.

Liberals suck at understanding comedy.

Well, conservatives notoriously suck at making comedy, so it evens out.

Congressional pubs are scared of backlash from Trump's base, they'll never oppose him unless he's at Bush 2008 approvals.

Jobs and wages are "why we voted him in," says Kenneth Olsen, a 60-year-old factory worker from Racine, Wisconsin, who has been told his job is moving to Canada soon. He's deeply concerned that he and his wife might lose their house after he's laid off.

"I really haven't seen him doing anything" on jobs, Olsen said. "The longer they stall around and dance around and whatever, the more people are gonna get hurt."

"I hope it's not the biggest mistake of my life," Peggy Stewart told me in February about her vote for Trump. She lives in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, a state Trump won by just 10,704 votes.

She makes $9 an hour, barely above Michigan's minimum wage. When asked what she would tell Trump if she ever met him, the petite Midwesterner said, "Mr. Trump, please take care of us. We're looking to you."

A White House spokesman later told CNN: "These comments were not authorized by the White House. They do not reflect the US position, and certainly not the President's position."

All were terrible, I guess Kennedy or Carter were best. And isolationism is key.

ND will flip. The Dakotas are enamored with Trump.

Jason Kander/Jeff Merkley. Is this a good ticket?

Problem is Labour would rather have the Tories rule until the sun expands than have a Blairite lead them to victory.

Which is how they should feel, considering Blair led them to war. You have to be certain your leaders have the proper morals.

Before Trump, I would have said it was impossible, but now I don't know. The WWC have no shame.

I haven't been keeping up with the FBI stuff and just stumbled across this thread. Please tell me this is a random rhetorical question and Jon Cornyn is not seriously a candidate for FBI director. Never mind, of course he is. This administration is the worst in history.

This is why I'm barely here anymore.
Your hyperbole is showing, son.


Context. You can't compare the 1850s to now, for several reasons.
