Another thing to keep in mind about American politics is that 90% of legislation is agenda-based and comes with a lot of money attached.
Fuc* Obama, Biden and all of them!
JUST MAKE MONEY!
Happy Monday morning Everyone, hope you all had a great weekend
He is more your president than mine. The 2000s have been a sad century for US presidents, At this point, I would welcome back Jimmy Carter, now that is a low bar
That is absolutely what it is, we have two Americas, City and Rural, If you want a visual example just watch the movie Hunger Games, Someone here noted the wealth in the states around Washington DC, then you have the wealth of California at the other end of the country, those of us in the middle are left to fight for the scraps. That is the movie Hunger Games and we are clearly living in the backstory
I remember the civil rights marches of MLK, while the rural south had its problems, the real violence came in northern cities.
God help us
It is important that America maintains a peaceful environment this week, no protests should be violent
Chris Rock on point.
Chris Rock says arresting Donald Trump is like arresting Tupac Shakur: ‘He’s just going to sell more records. Are you stupid?’
Comedian Chris Rock said on Sunday that arresting Donald Trump would only boost his popularity.
He compared the possible indictment to how Tupac Shakur released a bestselling album from prison.
Rock was likely joking, but right-wing figures also say Trump could benefit from being indicted.
Comedian Chris Rock said arresting former President Donald Trump would be like imprisoning Tupac Shakur — arguing that it’ll only boost the bombastic 2024 presidential candidate and help Trump rally more support.
“Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” Rock asked on stage at a Sunday event to award the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor to Adam Sandler, per multiple reports.
Rock joked that apprehending Trump “is only going to make him more popular,” The Guardian’s David Smith and Deadline reported.
“It is like arresting Tupac. He’s just going to sell more records,” Rock said, per Deadline.
"Are you stupid? He slept with a porn star and paid off someone so his wife wouldn’t find out. That’s romantic," Rock said.
You know how far American politics has fallen when Chris Rock becomes the voice of reason
Chris Rock’s greatest moment
Good Tuesday morning everyone
Great timing, gotta love this guy, he took advantage of his supporters in his first fundraiser, so why not continue the trend, Stupid Is As Stupid Does.
Trump is using the news of his looming indictment to fundraise on Truth Social, asking supporters to help ‘take back our Country’
Former President Donald Trump is using his looming indictment for fundraising on Truth Social.
Trump said he would be “arrested” next week and called for his followers to protest.
Trump’s attorney said he was basing his claim on “tea leaves” and a Fox News report.
True to form, former President Donald Trump is using his looming indictment to fundraise.
On Monday, Trump shared a minute-long attack ad with suspenseful music bashing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s on Truth Social, spreading a litany of conspiracy theories and allegations about the DA. The video followed days of other attacks on Bragg, as well as fundraising efforts that followed his posts about a possible indictment.
In a Truth Social post on Saturday, Trump said he expects to be “arrested” on Tuesday, though his attorneys previously told Insider’s Laura Italiano on Saturday they could not confirm that information and said he was “basing this on press reports.”
A few hours after Trump called for his followers to “protest” and “take our nation back,” he shared a fundraising video.
“If you are doing poorly, as so many of you are, do not send anything. If you are doing well, which was made possible through the great policies of the Trump Administration, send your contribution,” Trump wrote, listing his website for donations.
“We have to take back our Country and, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” the former president added.
Again on Monday, Trump’s Save America Joint Fundraising Committee referenced the indictment in a fundraising plea and asked for donations “to show that you will never surrender,”
