Nicolle Wallace made a good point about the FBI agent that called Trump a "f**king idiot"...

That at about the same time last summer, Lindsey Graham and others were saying things just as bad about Trump as the FBI agent said.

Some called him "unstable" and "unfit". SoS Rex Tillerson reportedly called him a "f**king moron"? Is there a difference between an effing moron and an effing idiot??

It is a nonsensical argument that the Republican House members are making.

"The GOP are greedy hypocrites". My grandmother died at the age of 103 three years ago and was a GOP hater from way back. Four generations of die hard Dems in my family. Common sense must be in our gene pool. Needless to say, our family's "special occasion" events are a GOP bash-a-thon.

were as clear sighted and on target as your family, we wouldn't be in the shithole the pukes are digging for us.

Truly, the country has been hijacked as a consequence of indifference and ignorance on the part of a large portion of the electorate.

And, just wait until the cruel, hate-filled future the pukes are trying to force on us comes to pass.

Our only hope is to elect Democrats and compel them to restore the policies that work for all Americans.

issues freely. Obviously we choose to not associate with Repubs in general and would never invite them to a dinner. Even if one managed to slip past us he would either voluntarily leave within 10 minutes or keep his mouth shut. We do not censor our opinions and beliefs. Do not even get us started on religion.

A failing attempt by Fox and puppet politicians who do as Fox commands.

Granted, I stopped a couple of courses and a dissertation short of a PHD. I've been involved in politics from the local level since I was a "Kennedy Girl' in junior high and recruited other kids while my mom, one of the few Democrats in a very Republican town, welcomed JFK on stage locally in1960 when he was "barnstorming" the country. I've had the time to be very active locally in the last few presidential elections and worked for state and local candidates in PA. ( actually getting a bit pissed with Sen. Bob Casey and Gov. Tom). Isn't this situation a plus for Mueller due to the way it was previously handled?

it was the FBI that revived the Clinton investigation two weeks before the election.

Too many facts for Fox to make any fake hay out of this, but they sure try...and now the fake President took the cue.
Ailes would not have done it this way with this thin stuff to work with.

Let's face it, of course he called Trump a fucking moron. Trump had proposed increasing our nuclear arsenal 1000%!

Actually, "a fucking moron" is fairly mild compared to what I think of Trump.

Moron: A person having an IQ of 50-69 and judged incapable of developing beyond a mental age of 8-12.
Idiot: An utterly foolish or senseless person often incapable of developing beyond mental age of 3-4.
So, what we had in Trump is a effing moronic idiot.

This is topic #1 on radio and much of Fox News.

It stinks of desperation, filling time, and the timing is horrible ---- as Trump-hausted most people are they really just want to check out and enjoy the holidays. Their media is hammering on this and, as they do, will build on their stories and it will go not Strange dark places. When the general public re-engages these TALKING points will be 14 steps into madness and sound like it.
