commented on Melania Trump Denies She Broke US Immigration Laws
To those here who would assert the "candidates' families are off limits" rule (which is so often broken) they should strain themselves to realize this item has functionally nothing to do about Melania herself. Trump went off early and often on "illegal immigrants" and then it turns out that he likely married one. That the wife du-jour was what Melania has agreed to be is only the stupidity of those who did the background checks for outstanding issues with the candidate, ("uh... we akually didn't do any of dose"). In zero political time Melania will survive just fine; hell, she'll probably get more 'coverage' for herself this way, (following the post-candidacy divorce). No INS agents will be visiting her, however much they should; the "wall" of lawyers will protect her nicely.
commented on Here are but a few of the Reasons Why You Hate Mike Pence
Some touchy-feely columnist needs to write this social analysis story; here's the setup: someone the writer knows and cares about, possibly a close relative, (someone you can't somehow ditch), decides they are supporting trump. The whole column would be what the hell should the response of a sane person be. You can't have the person committed or call in a 'deprogrammer'. And although i'd say you need to get far away from them and they ought to be dumped in the middle of a bunch of Westboro Baptists, you can't do that either. At the least this 'friend' ought to be kept drugged/drunk for the next 115 days. Can we mourn for the loss of those who would vote trump?
