I ain't watching the Republican Liar's Festival

I'm sure that the snippets on tonight's news will be more than enough to disgust me. How some of you DUers can watch that crap is beyond my comprehension. You must have stronger stomachs than me.

a few minutes at a time. All those lies, I hope they can remember them all and keep them all exactly the same when question time rolls around. The truth is what it is and all you have to remember is the truth. When lying, you have remember all the lies and keep them well organized to make your case. Few ever succeed at the latter.

You'll live longer.

FWIW, I have an iron stomach. I thank the universe every time hubby has to take a green pill (simethicone) and lie down a while.

And I can take only a few minutes at a time. Right now, Pam Bondi of all people is discussing corruption. No, really, seriously, she is.

Catching sadistic serial killers is so much more preferable than watching Trump's paid liars.

Otherwise they can claim they said something they didn’t.

Plus I want this to be the highest rated show on tv this week.

I’m sorry. I don’t care to focus on the fact that Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash.

I’m sorry, I’m not interested in all the speculation on the Wuhan Coronavirus. I flipped out and got my masks two weeks ago. I’ll deal with it when it gets to my neighborhood.

No, I am paying attention to the impeachment proceedings, and I want it known. This is basically what I told both of my senators in my phone call today. This, and no, what’s happening isn’t about the Bidens, it isn’t about the Obamas, nor is it about the Clintons. So to have the presidents defense team bring up all three of these families and try to spread the blame around and spread mis and disinformation, I reminded my senators that this is the impeachment trial of donald john trump. And we should vote to call witnesses and to subpoena documents.
