    This is a pretty stunning development and the disastrous interview is already being used against him in court. He essentially just outright admitted to lying in both cases.

    Source (but it's everywhere right now)

    His base didn't care for his laughable, reprehensible behavior when he ran. Unless he raped and murdered about 50 people, it's all "meh" to them.

    To put it in further perspective. 45 just admitted to being in the hotel where the pee tape was alleged to have been made on the night that it was alleged to have been made. And his bodyguard previously confirmed that 45 was offered multiple hookers on the night the pee tape was alleged to have been made.

    Should be an entertaining tape if it's ever released. I'm surprised it hasn't leaked already.

    No.. Next he'll say he watched the Russian prostitutes peeing on the bed. But he didn't enjoy it nearly as much as he thought he would. In fact, he decided he wasn't going to pay them. Because he is such a great negotiator.

    Actually, no. Nothing the Clinton's did ever came even remotely close to the corruption Trump is guilty of.

    And what exactly has Trump been found guilty of? Rumors? Speculation? Hysterical and daily opinions? If thats what we now use the term 'guilty' for then yes the Clintons are just as bad...

    I think the Clintons are corrupt as the day is long but I also choose to wait for proof before decrying them as such.. Is Trump guilty of something? Maybe, maybe not - same for the Clintons, Obama, Bush ect..

    this stuff really does make me laugh... but, but, "muh Stormy and muh pee tape"

    This is it for sure this time, we finally have Trump beaten ... multiple, credible sources have confirmed, Putin has the amazing pee tape and is obviously blackmailing President Trump.

    Possibly not quite the right scenario but the line out of context has a nice ring to it.

    I haven't really been following the Stormy Daniels story, has a crime allegedly been committed?

    Um...

    Bill has been accused of raping, sexual assaulting and harassing, and knocking up a prostitute and paying child support to the hooker. All before running for president.

    Hillary has her own skeletons, such as letting Bill get away with it, and attacking and trashing Bill's accusers.

    If you want something more recently, just look at Hillary's personal email server that she illegally had.

    There is plenty more.

    I am no fan of Trump, but just giving the Clintons a pass on everything just boggles my mind.

    Oh I dunno.. how about how much of a hazard Donald Trump is to his own continuance in office?

    This event makes it perfectly clear why Trump's attorneys don't ever want him showing up for any interview with Mueller's outfit -- even if Trump "decides" or "promises" in advance to take the Fifth Amendment. Trump can't help himself, his voice (or Twitter hand) just follows cues thrown off from the meanderings of his brain like so many random sparks from a log touched by a poker in a fireplace.

    All the interviewer has to do is include some triggering word or phrase in a question and Trump will take it from there, and hang himself out to dry by the time he's done losing it by "making everything perfectly clear" to the interviewer. Everyone knows this now, ever since Clinton baited him during the primaries in the debate at Hofstra.

    A serious reporter will have a list of questions he wants to ask Trump, even if he suspects he won't get to ask all of them or get answers to many. But a media host who just wants ratings doesn't have to prepare that hard, just scribble a few sentences with phrases in them that are bound to set Trump off (yet again) and line them up on a sheet of paper like a row of Dash buttons from Amazon...

    Entertaining? Who would want to actually see it? Surely you're just taking the piss, right?

    Bad phrasing by me. How about : It should be entertaining if the tape is released.

    Political correctness has definitely taken a back seat... at the expense of snowflake feelings getting hurt.

    What are you talking about. Bill Clinton was actually impeached for lying about a sexual affair. Hillary Clinton has been hounded for thirty or forty years, non stop, by the far right as well as by assorted committees in Congress; she was investigated ten times (and found not responsible) over Benghazi. Anyone who remembers the 1983 adventures of the USA in Lebanon and the resulting proportional responses by Congress and still wants to go again at Clinton over Benghazi is clearly a hyperpartisan having no particular interests of the taxpayers in mind.

    This guy Trump actually is the President. He's not some past official in the government. He's someone we depend on right now to behave better than he's doing.

    Yet his supporters apparently condone his behavior, and not only with respect to past scandals of a sexual nature. Not a peep out of them so far about his picking of self-serving, agency-wrecking Cabinet chiefs.

    Not a peep about the rollback of banking regulations that looked after main street citizens' rights.

    No complaints about the travesty Betsy deVos is making out of federal leadership on education issues.

    No complaints about Interior Dept Secretary Ryan Zinke easing up in his home state but meanwhile elsewhere continuing to sell outright or whittle down protected wildlife and recreational areas that Americans treasure as their National Parks System. Oh, and cutting Florida at least a temporary break in saying yeah we don't want offshore drilling there especially since the Republican campaign for governor needs "beach protection" in his campaign ads, so just drill elsewhere as desired for now off the Atlantic Coast.

    Further, if as Trump says, drugs addiction is a huge public health crisis, why is his own Justice Department all fired up about enforcing (and urging creation of more) laws that end up imprisoning juveniles over possession of trivial amounts of weed but meanwhile Trump's done nothing to ramp up assistance to the states short of good addiction treatment facilities, yet ignoring the complaints about the ones that are scams.

    It's scandalous what the Trump supporters are willing to overlook. And for what? What is he doing for them? Some got the tax breaks. Some are happy about Gorsuch on SCOTUS (although some of them are gripiong now that he swing one decision 5-4 the other way... guess it never occurred to them that an "originalist" does not translate to "a right winger" in every situation. Gee. Too bad... he's on the court for life now barring impeachable behavior, which imo in this country any more, Gorsuch doesn't have to worry.

    But the left-behinds, the ones Trump likes to rally in Florida or Ohio... what has he done lately for them that's not going to come back and bite them and us all in the behind in a few years? The unpaid for tax cut. The unfixed health care system. The trade wars in which the other parties don't just sit there sucking their thumbs and saying "gee that wasn't nice...", no those countries are biting back right now, why wait?!

    I have never seen such reluctance to remember that one is sometimes called upon to be "American first" instead of hyperpartisan, even while free to holler "America First!!" at Trump rallies. When there's a deranged elephant breaking up housekeeping in your own living room, it's stupid and dangerous to pretend it's just Donald Trump on a TV reality show again, pretending to be President of the USA.

    But your rant has very little to do with the response to the post I quoted:
    Most of the things you mentioned are political issues, not actual serious crimes.

    Also, what is the story with Stormy Daniels? Is she accusing him of rape? Or just an affair?

    I would never run for a high profile political office, especially with the skeletons in my closets, but if I slept with a porn star, I would be telling everyone I know. Unless I was married, then I wouldn't tell a soul, and take it to my grave.

    Although, I would much rather it be Mia Khalifa than Stormy Daniels, but that's just me.

    He definitely profits from his presidency. Foreign delegations stay at the Trump International Hotel hoping to curry his favor. He raised the membership fee at Mar-a-lago. The Trump Organization tried to put pressure on the Panamanian government to intervene on their behalf in the dispute over Trump Tower in Panama. I think Kushner's sister or some other relative tried to sell visas to Chinese for some sort of business deal.

    I don't like the Clinton Foundation, it does feel like something that could be used for influence peddling. But Trump and his family are an order of magnitude worse.

    Urine trouble for not seizing a golden opportunity for continuing the pee puns.
