Trump's Presidency: Is this the next domino to fall?

Here is what Fox News came up with regarding George Kent's testimony -

After a day of public testimony in which Americans were told directly by top officials that Donald Trump attempted to coerce the president of Ukraine into digging up dirt on a political rival, the political punditry in the United States had plenty to work with — yet Fox News attacked one of the witnesses for drinking too much water.

Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo led the charge during an appearance on the Ingraham Angle, a weeknight talk show hosted by Laura Ingraham.

For a portion of the show in question, they chose to hone in on George Kent, a top State Department official to Ukraine, who had brought a large blue water bottle to the hearings.

“He drank a lot of water, Laura. I mean, fish are not this hydrated,” Arroyo said as footage of Mr Kent drinking water played. “Look, he’s — he’s always taking slugs — look, throughout the hearing, he took slugs of this thing.”

“What is this, is he on the treadmill? What is this with the water?” Ingraham replied, apparently exasperated by Mr Kent’s hydration routine. Then, with a red circle drawn around the bottle as if it were incriminating evidence, she continued: “Do you guys see that?”

Arroyo certainly did see it.

“It’s amazing,” he added. “It was like a medical sized water tower… A water silo.”

Then Ingraham decided to take it a step further, and suggested that she “thought had hid an oxygen chamber or something.”

 

 

Yes, apparently he drank too much water.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said on Thursday that the United States Ambassador Gordon Sondland did not link financial military assistance to a request for Ukraine to open up an investigation into former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

The Daily Wire. :lol:  Always a balanced view.   Epstein was assassinated by Obama.  Pop, glug glug glug.

 

According to Snopes, "DailyWire.com has a tendency to share stories that are taken out of context or not verified," including reports on protesters digging up Confederate graves, Democratic congresspeople refusing to stand for a fallen Navy SEAL's widow, and Harvard University holding segregated commencement ceremonies.[15] According to FactCheck.org, The Daily Wire incorrectly credited Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson with finding over $500 billion in accounting errors made by the Obama administration. FactCheck.org reported that the errors were discovered and published by HUD's independent inspector general before Carson became secretary.[16]

The Daily Wire has published articles expressing skepticism that climate change is occurring and that humans contribute to climate change. Climate scientists have described the articles as inaccurate and misleading.[17][18][19]

*I* certainly have bigger balls than somebody - I actually *earn* my living and face a lot of real life challenges!

(And changed professions instead of whining about it to boot.)

:D

 

(Does that make me Michelle Obama, who also had her own profession - as a lawyer? I would be proud to be her.)

Because it's easier for J2 to try to fool people than to convince J2 that he's the one that's being fooled.

It's been quite a day in the world of President Trump.

During a break in the second public impeachment hearing Friday, Trump's former adviser, Roger Stone, was found guilty on all seven counts against him, including lying to Congress. The Wall Street Journal notes Stone is now the sixth Trump associate convicted on charges stemming from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump lashed out after the conviction, tweeting angrily about the fact that "they" want to jail Stone "for many years to come" for lying and rattling off a long list of his political enemies whom he accuses of lying. Trump made no apparent distinction between lying to Congress, for which Stone was convicted, and lying in general. As Stone holds out hope for a presidential pardon, he might be feeling pretty good about these tweets.



 

 

So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?...

...A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country?

 
 
 
 

This all came while Trump was accused of witness intimidation for attacking ousted Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch on Twitter while she testified before Congress. Coincidentally, one of the charges Stone was convicted of was witness tampering.

It's even more:

 

"All the president’s (convicted) men"

Following Roger Stone’s conviction earlier today, NPR took note of the many criminals in Donald Trump’s immediate orbit.

 

Stone was the second close political adviser of Trump’s brought to trial on charges by Mueller’s team. The other was Stone’s former business partner, Paul Manafort, who was convicted in 2018 in a tax and bank fraud trial in Virginia. Manafort later pleaded guilty to other charges in a related case brought by Mueller in Washington, D.C. He is now in prison.

 

Six others – including Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to charges that arose from the special counsel’s probe.

Yep. That would be the Nothingburger Report.

After Trump had 3 rallies in Louisiana to get Dem. governor Edwards ousted -

 

Quote

 

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards won a second term Saturday to remain the only Democratic governor in the Deep South despite an all-out effort by President Donald Trump to flip the seat to the Republican column.

Edwards narrowly beat wealthy Republican businessman Eddie Rispone, who invested more than $14 million of his own money to finance his campaign and tied himself to Trump from start to finish.

While many Republicans bemoaned the lack of star power in their candidates – powerhouse Republican U.S. Sen. John Kennedy and popular GOP state Attorney General Jeff Landry passed on the race – Edwards had to fend off Trump and Vice President Mike Pence during the months-long campaign.

Trump headlined three Louisiana rallies to oust Edwards, first in Lake Charles on the eve of the Oct. 12 primary election and then in Monroe and Bossier City during the runoff campaign...

Wow! Was just told that my son’s book, “Triggered,” is Number One on The New York Times Bestseller List. Congratulations Don!

 
 
The reason,
 
 

Confirmed: @DonaldJTrumpJr made the NYT bestseller list thanks to "institutional, special interest, group or bulk purchases" (the meaning of that cross symbol, per the NYT); in other words, it looks like his dad and the GOP bought him a bestseller so he could put it on his resume.

 

My God, what a shallow, vain shower of shit the Trump family are.
