I'm so happy.
lmao oh my god
The Stormy Daniel's investigation continues to go badly for team Trump.
Apparently the shell company Trump's lawyer used to pay Daniel's her money, was also used to accept payments from companies linked with Russia. Whoops.
I kind of want to rate that Winner. But like, that's not quite right?? I'm just continually baffled at how incompetent everyone involved is.
Rating proposition: “fucking incredible”
Gues wat, binches.
(I think it has to go through the House now? American politik is not my speciality.)
I... someone who knows more about US politics please weight in: is it time for optimism now?
Per this article here: https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo...proves-overturning-fccs-net-neutrality-repeal
Broadly speaking, this is a signal that the Dems are The People To Vote For in order to get an unrestricted internet.
It may continue to the House, but that seems less likely at the moment.
THERE GOES MY REMAINING MOOD FOR THE DAY
Just making this note. That’s Nazism. That’s the belief that one country is for one race and everyone else doesn’t deserve their country.
I think it’s an opportunist pandering to Nazis, but I could be wrong.
Gods take this man.
Fire swallow him whole.

I’m pretty sure that’s what he actually believes.
I don’t think he’s really capable of lying, because for that, he would have to have some sort of concept that objective truth exists beyond “This series of words makes me feel emotions.”
Honestly at that point it doesn't really matter if he believes it or not. He's supporting it. He's giving these people and these sorts of 'conversations' a leg to stand on and it doesn't matter a single last bit if he does so because he believes it or because it makes people cheer at him or because of someone convoluted political move.
He's supporting nazis and espousing nazi ideoogy/rhethoric. The Why is about as important as a wet tissue in the ocean at this point.
The reasons why I don't make a case for whether he truly believes in Nazism or not are 1. I don't know him, 2. I don't want to think about it, and 3. yeah, he's doing a fuck ton of damage whether he believes what he says or not, unfortunately. His psychology will be important to anyone who thinks they are in a position to talk him down. Which would be just fantastic were anyone here in such a position >u<
He may well believe that "America is for Americans..." he certainly acts like he does. And it's just an extension of his egocentric mentality.
I don't know what we can do about that though. Nazis have an incredibly important mouthpiece in the White House. Many people are trying to get rid of him. We get to help vote in people to run interference on him in November, that's nice.
