    And we haven’t even discussed Mark Zuckerberg defending holocaust denial as a valid point of view or Elon Musk accusing the saviour of the Thai football team of being a pedophile because he got there before Musk’s tacky mini-sub.

    Okay that's some uncanny valley if ever I saw it.

    And nice of Paul Ryan to call out the racist pom-pom brigade of the Republican Party all the while guys like Steve King and Donald Trump represent the party (and as Republicans push be bills that negatively affect minorities at various levels)
    Also nice of Rand Paul to perfectly illustrate how much of idiot he is.

    Should John Schnatter slot in here with him being mad he was forced to resign along with some even more less than flattering news coming out about his actions and shady business practices?

    Granted he's the the billionaire founder of a tech related company.

    Nah. He's not an obnoxious techbro, he's a self-made racist asshole that takes the view "if I can do it, anyone can" and doesn't seem to realize he' where he is because of luck. Different beast, but still detestable.

    BTW, I count myself as morally bankrupt.

    I mean from asking, storing, filtering and presenting people's contact information to sell them shitty insurance and not realizing it until a year later, to do the same to get them to vote for the worst possible candidate there isn't much difference.

    I used to work as a consultant to some of the Venezuelan government expropriated banks.

    Our craft is so removed from its effects on people, and our decision making power is so far removed from the chain of command, that once you get to the top is halfway entitlement/resentment halfway naivety of what you do doesn't impact anyone in any deep way.

    So, you know how Trump just had a private meeting with Putin where he agreed to who knows what and absolutely no one has any idea what was agreed upon and so Putin has a blank check to say whatever he wants? The Dems put up a vote to subpeona the translator that was at Trump's meeting with Putin because as the ONE AMERICAN IN THE ROOM, it's probably important to hear from them what was said!

    Guess what happened next.

    GUESS.


    That's right, Republicans downvoted the motion and then proceeded to push forth an investigation about...

    Hillary's emails.

    Can't make this shit up.

    Special Counsel Mueller will probably subpoena her anyway, so this thing's far from over.


    Carrot's still never gonna join the crew.

    I really donít think it would be a good look for US Diplomacy if world leaders had to worry about the secrecy of their entire private conversations with the US president being jeopardized by the interrogation of interpretors... whom no doubt have been sworn to utmost secrecy else face extensive criminal proceedings, specifically because these kind of diplomatic talks are so sensitive to all the parties involved.

    Like, these conversations are private for a reason. You canít do mob diplomacy, it would never work and would end up with politicians staging their talks to appeal to the electorate rather than fix the real issues at hand.

    But hey. Maybe thatís just me. I donít think, personally, that itís a good precedent to set.

    Lol Hillaryís emails

    He ONLY has private meetings with Putin. No one else. ONLY Putin.

    And has refused to say anything about what was actually negotiated or talked about, even though it affects US policy on who knows what going forward, so Putin can literally say anything he wants.

    The public doesn't need to know about the back and forth, but they do need to know the results and any commitments that have been made.

    And there are lots and lots of reasons to believe they were working together prior to this, and prior to the election. Ya know, that whole COLLUSION thing Trump keeps swearing there was none of.
