Sick of that asshole

Just the opposite for me - I'm thoroughly sick of mainstream media coverage of the Mueller investigations to the exclusion of most other news, to the point where I no longer watch the broadcast evening news shows.

Can't get enough of that asshole? Let's hope we're all soon spared media coverage of this contemptible human being. The Mueller investigation is the most important historical event since Watergate. You always have Fox News and Breitbart.

I avoid all cable news now.

Breitbart surprised me after all the negative comments it gets. It is highly accurate and impartial reporting that doesn't sanitize facts out of stories the way liberal media omits immigration status etc. Try it like I did and see how factual it is. Just don't read the comments by people.

Do you really want to discuss "immigration status, etc."? That "etc." contains a lot of other bullshit. Breitbart provides nothing but a right-wing pseudo-objectivity. Take Toobin's quote on CNN about Trump's comments on the prosecution of those two Repug congressmen.

He was probably wrong about Trump's tweet being an impeachable offense, but Breitbart doesn't do any analysis of the indictments themselves. Based on public information so far, both those guys deserved to be indicted. One was busted for insider trading, and the other for using campaign money for personal expenses. According to non-Breitbart sources, there's plenty of evidence to convict them both.

Why didn't a Republican controlled Justice Department just drop the charges against the two congressmen if, as Trump implies, they were politically motivated? Because even Jeff Sessions and Republican prosecutors in the DOJ have to follow the law and the facts, which Trump apparently doesn't understand.

Trump is already obviously guilty of obstruction of justice, and I'm convinced that Mueller also has plenty of evidence that he's guilty of money laundering for the Russians. Trump is going down, and the sooner the better.

I hope Trump keeps tweeting leading up to the November elections, since, along with everything else he does and says, it makes his poll numbers go down.

Best source for those numbers is FiveThirtyEight, which includes all polls in its number.

The hed on Breitbart about Obama's speech: Bitter Barack Obama Breaks Months of Silence to Trash Donald Trump.

I posted the speech above, and Obama's "tone" is actually rather jovial, not at all "bitter." Otherwise, the story about what he said isn't bad.

But there's a lot of laughs on this site, with a petition to prosecute Hillary for imaginary crimes (Benghazi! and the Clinton Foundation), and poor Alex Jones being dumped off Twitter with 8,794 comments!
