    Boo hoo, dry your eyes.

    If you really can’t see the difference between the POTUS and a bunch of easily led no marks, then I can’t help you.

    And it is a masterclass in spin. It gets the anti-Trump types reacting emotionally. He's living rent-free in their heads.

    There's a great clip from the movie "Where The Buffalo Roam" that sums it up.

    It's why I said Acosta should have know better. Trump has been obsessed with him since 2016, he really is a very small man who becomes fixated on people in the media. Day after what Trump had finally realized was a defeat and more importantly - in his eyes- a rejection of him, personally, with Mueller now out of campaign purdah, he sacks Sessions and goes looking for blood in the press pool. Because he knows they will be emboldened and sniggering at him. That will drive him mad. So he spends ten minutes bemoaning how hostile they are, and calling Acosta an enemy of the people. Acosta should have seen it coming.

    Once you realise Trump has the soul of a fourteen year old girl, as Hunter S Thompson claimed he possessed himself, but didn't really, it all becomes clear...

    When that happens, don't give these people the excuse to say "sure the Dems are just the same", which is partly what happened in this country when the FF spell finally got broken.
    Before Trump's tax cuts -

    If you are earning $25,000 a year in America you pay the all your wages on Monday and about 40 minutes on Tuesday in taxes to the federal government

    If you earn $1million a day you pay the first six hours of Monday in tax to the federal government. Someone on $25,000 a year has a bigger tax burden than someone earning $1million a day.

    America is not a 'low tax' country - you pay federal taxes, state taxes (some of which can be written off against federal taxes), local government taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, etc. High income earners in California pay 52.9% tax on their income. On top of that you also pay for things like water (average $112 per month for a family of four).

    The USA is a country for the rich - real incomes for 99% of the population have barely risen in the last 50 years ago - for the 1% it is a different story.

    By the way - the Democrats are the same as the GOP - they represent a different wing of corporate America.

    It’s amazing that they call the Dems left wing.

    I think there is a large part of the Democrtic party that are left wing but let's face it when the GOP brainwash people that the word "socialist" and "pedophile" are largely on a par with each other, it can be a hard sell in many parts of America

    and you replied

    I watched both of your links , at worst his "touching" of the intern was accidental. I would interpret what happened as she putting her arm into his way. She was the actor.

    Nothing in Mr. Acosta's conduct was reprehensible, aggressive or wrong. He was insistent in trying for an answer, which he did not get.

    If you disagree with me , please articulate precisely where Acosta did wrong. Time stamps in the links provided will be clear in where exactly you allege misconduct.
    Just because you did something stupid yesterday does not mean you cannot do something smart today!
