First!

I missed a few parts of the previous thread due to real life intervening. What's the grape reference?

ZimAgain - 28 Jan 2019 22:04:32 (#3 of 1722)

It's a TRaney thing. The Orange One was talking about wine in some tweet or other and put "grapes" in brackets, just so all of his base would know what he was talking about. This tickled TRaney, who is very into brackets and will be wanking himself silly about the thread title (allegedly).

PaperRustler - 28 Jan 2019 22:04:42 (#4 of 1722)

It's a reference to Donnie's habit of using random (parentheses), much appreciated by TRaney. In one tweet he was talking about farming (grapes).

PaperRustler - 28 Jan 2019 22:05:37 (#5 of 1722)

Ten seconds, damn you.

ZimAgain - 28 Jan 2019 22:05:53 (#6 of 1722)

Any time, PR.

JerkinMcGherkin - 28 Jan 2019 22:21:28 (#7 of 1722)

Maybe (Grope) would be more fitting in DJT's case.

TRaney - 28 Jan 2019 22:39:38 (#8 of 1722)

This tickled TRaney, who is very into brackets and will be wanking himself silly about the thread title (allegedly).

Finished now Zim

Gah, the whole (grapes) thing makes me want to chew bricks each time I see it. Roll on new thread.

TinyMcOtter - 28 Jan 2019 23:00:55 (#10 of 1722)

Anyway, seeing as my ground-breaking posts on the old thread will probably be ignored, here they are again.

So why is this Howard Schultz character trying to fuck the Dems election chances?

I'm thinking he's:

1. against the potential 'left wing' direction of the Dems and doesn't like Warren/Bernie.

2. as above, but hoping to be called in at the last minute to be the offical Dem nominee.

3. as above, but hoping to be called in at the last minute to be the offical 'moderate' Republican nominee.

4. just a self-aggrandising twat.

TinyMcOtter - 28 Jan 2019 23:01:02 (#11 of 1722)

And:

Acting AG Whitaker on the Russia investigation: “The investigation is, I think, close to being completed, and I hope that we can get the report from [Special Counsel] Mueller as soon as we -- as possible.”

Hmmmmmmmmmm. And is this something that Mueller has any say in?

popstar7 - 28 Jan 2019 23:40:30 (#12 of 1722)

I'm fairly sure whoever the Democratic candidate is in 2020, you'll hate them on principle.

davedanon - 28 Jan 2019 23:46:49 (#13 of 1722)

I'm just annoyed we couldn't wait until the 15k before we started the new thread, dammit.

TinyMcOtter - 29 Jan 2019 00:06:12 (#14 of 1722)

I'm fairly sure whoever the Democratic candidate is in 2020, you'll hate them on principle.



And will you still be sour and irritable, getting annoyed with people who hold differing opinions?

popstar7 - 29 Jan 2019 00:14:48 (#15 of 1722)

Nope. I'll back them whoever it turns out to be.

davedanon - 29 Jan 2019 00:16:43 (#16 of 1722)

People, people. You can't be childish in here, this is the Trump thread.

LucyVanPelt - 29 Jan 2019 00:33:23 (#17 of 1722)

Steve Schmidt was hired by Schultz. If he truly is a never Trumper why is he helping someone who will be nothing but a spoiler? Disappointed barely covers how I feel about good old Steve right now.

PaperRustler - 29 Jan 2019 06:12:56 (#18 of 1722)

Me too, Lucy. I was very disappointed when I read that. Schmidt is very savvy, and knows this would be very bad news for Dems and excellent news for Donnie.

PaperRustler - 29 Jan 2019 06:16:10 (#19 of 1722)

By the way, Your Favorite President was on top form last night, managing to be both breathtakingly stupid and astonishingly childish:

In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!

Donald J. Trump Verified account @realDonaldTrump

How does Da Nang Dick (Blumenthal) serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee when he defrauded the American people about his so called War Hero status in Vietnam, only to later admit, with tears pouring down his face, that he was never in Vietnam. An embarrassment to our Country!

You'd think Trump University *alone* would keep him quiet on the subject of fraud, but no.

TheSwearingBear - 29 Jan 2019 07:13:17 (#20 of 1722)

Just imagine the bone spur tears.
