I think we like to change our topic of outrage seasonally now. Right now it’s back to sexual harassment which was somewhat dead after a failed attempt to get Hillary a win. In 3 months we are probably back to something involving racism....then maybe back to Russian collusion...then transgenderism for a month....then maybe back to racism....then sexism and so forth.

About 7 months is the longest we can stomach being completely outraged about any one issue. That’s why Russian collusion needed a break for a while. The networks need to be dialed in to what will get our blood pumping.

Right, he never has a genuine smile, since he is devoid of sincerity.

(Can anyone imagine being this guy? What a psychological study he will be).

I laughed the loudest at the "ethics and character be damned" part.

First comes Harvey, then comes a laundry list of Hollywood stars, then some state level congressmen, then some national level congressmen and then, at long last, Trump himself. Careers destroyed and precedents set but it's all just collateral damage.

You are already seeing people bringing up Trump stories that they haven't brought up since the election. "In the context of the recent allegations..." posts and articles are starting to pop up and you are going to start seeing more of it. All of it, every allegation, every career that's been halted in its tracks, every apology made and every reputation destroyed have all just been props used to set the stage for the final act, taking down Donald Trump.

I may be ignored or mocked or have my judgement questioned for saying this but in a few months time many people will be singing the same tune and it will seem obvious in retrospect.
Waa! Not My Pwesident! Impeach 45! Waa!

I am a Trump supporter who thinks he sees what his opposition's plans are for taking him down if the Mueller investigation doesn't work.

So do you feel that all SIXTEEN of the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct are lying?

They ignored or mocked Clinton's victims.

All of tRump's "issues" are entirely self-inflicted.

No one has to lift a finger to topple him. No one has to come up with a "plan." He's done all the damage himself and yet he blames everyone else, just like a small child.

He's quite the entertainer.

Trump was elected after these claims against him. America was aware of his alleged indiscretions. These other government officials need to be treated the same way. They need a special election for Senate/House seats of those accused i.e., Franken, etc etc. Let them campaign with voters aware of these sexual misconduct allegations and let the chips fall where they may.
