I don’t watch mainstream media anymore at all. It’s literally been at least a year if not longer since I watched any of that. All of them are “infotainment” and not news. It’s opinions of the news, telling people what and how to think. People can’t just hear news and decide for themselves what to think anymore. One side won’t report something, the other side won’t report on something else.

People need to look outside their biases for sources and then double check them at sites that would normally be against what they think. It’s not easy getting information anymore. They all have agendas.

In the meantime, a president telling a grieving widow of one of our killed in action military that her husband “knew what he was signing up for” literally makes me sick to my stomach. NFL kneeling is disrespecting the troops supposedly, but saying something like that to a new widow, pregnant with a child who will never know his father... “he knew what he signed up for” literally makes me ill. This poor woman and his parents and his unborn child. It would have been better off if he didn’t call at all.

I literally at this point can’t understand those defending him and his actions. How do you defend that? It has become like a cult at this point. It’s one thing to be a Republican vs a Democrat vs an Independent etc. but to ignore these things is just absolute insanity to me. It’s so incredibly hateful and I know for a fact that many who voted for him are not hateful, are nice people with big hearts. Are they just not getting this information?

When the news came out about what he said I did not think he was deliberately trying to be offensive. But it just shows how avoid of human emotion/remorse here is.

He's a sociopath. And I'm not joking. There are reportedly 4% of the population that are sociopaths, which means 14 million in the US. And most sociopaths are not murderers. They simply don't have empathy. And if you don't have empathy, you can be extremely successful. Think about it. Without a conscience you could be so powerful. I bet a lot of politicians and CEOs of destructive companies are sociopaths. And Trump sure seems like one. Have you ever seen him show compassion? I mean real compassion. All he does is recite words that he's heard compassionate people say. That's exactly what he did when he called that widow. And because he didn't know how to use those compassionate words he completely fucked it up.

Somebody in the Russian probe is going to be indicted on Monday.

Any guesses? My top 3 are Manafort, Flynn or Stone.

Given Roger Stone's twitter meltdown Friday evening I think it may be him.

Or it could be someone nobody ever heard of or a dem LOL

As much as the right wants to claim Obama destroyed America. He was never under investigation like Trump and his cronies are.

Many people are speculating that it's Jared, but that may be too good to be true.

Seems like Mueller is targeting smaller fishes in a big pond in hopes of luring the big fish onto the hook. I highly doubt that this will stop here.

So Trump and Alabama voters would rather have a child molester in the Senate than a Democrat.

Hillary was right. Deplorables.
