Interesting Dowd NYT Opinion piece "Jersey Boy Takes On Florida Man"(dalton99a posted free view)



He (Christie) said he isn’t running to get back at Trump for giving him a horrible case of Covid. Trump came to debate prep in September 2020 without telling Christie or anyone else that he had tested positive the day before, and Christie ended up in the I.C.U. for seven days. And he said he isn’t seeking payback because Trump didn’t make him attorney general. (Jared Kushner was still nursing a grudge because Christie put Kushner’s father in prison.)

But even for a guy who could be plenty nasty as governor, trying to overturn democracy was a bridge too far.

“The idea that somehow everyone’s going to stand around and wait for him to collapse of his own weight and then say, ‘Oh, I didn’t say anything bad about him,’” he said. “He’s never fallen of his own weight. The only time Donald Trump’s ever backed off in his life is when he’s been beaten to back off. I saw it happen in Atlantic City. He was bankrupt three times. He had to finally give in and close down.”

Christie mocked Ron DeSantis responding to Jan. 6 by saying he was not in Washington — “Was he alive?” Christie asked Kaitlan Collins on CNN. He thinks DeSantis has already lost the authenticity contest: “If you say to Tucker Carlson that Ukraine is a territorial dispute and then a few days later you go to Piers Morgan and you call Putin a war criminal, well, it’s one or the other.”

If you've ever lived in the south - Ted Lasso's accent is so fake

Annoyingly fake.

Admit, it's only on in the background. But so far, can't believe this won so many awards.

Guess I need to really watch huh. But that accent makes me cringe

Latest trump defense on classified docs

"I'm a busy guy, I wanted to go thru every single box. Who knows, there was a vast amount of personal stuff.( Like ties) That's what I was looking for. " !Paraphrasing)

In all honesty, to me, best defense ( albeit tons of holes) he's come up with. IMHO. If you've got a better one, explain...

Palmer: Confused Donald Trump says he might cut plea deal in DOJ case if they pay him


Donald Trump made his first public appearance after being criminally indicted by the DOJ, and as one might have predicted, it went rather stupidly. Trump oddly made a point of insisting he’ll stay in the 2024 race even though he’s going on trial fairly soon for Espionage Act charges. This felt oddly defensive, given that no one anywhere was expecting him to just drop out immediately after being indicted. But then he said something truly strange.

Trump said he might be willing to cut a plea deal with the DOJ if “they pay me some damages.” No really, he said this. He really said this.

Maybe Trump was trying to be funny. But even if so, what he said still didn’t make sense. He seems to think this is some kind of civil case, where only monetary damages are on the line. He thinks this is negotiable. He doesn’t really appear to understand that he’ll be put on criminal trial, he’ll be found guilty, and he’ll go to federal prison, and the only “negotiation” he could potentially make is a slightly shorter prison sentence in exchange for pleading guilty.


But all of Trump’s obvious confusion and lack of a human sense of humor aside, he may have given something away here. He seems to be talking about some kind of scenario where he’s paid to go away, which makes you wonder if his endgame really is to get the RNC and its donors to pay him to exit the race rather than continuing to “run” once he’s in prison. We’ll see.

What do you think is a Debbie Downer here?

Someone who expressed frustration that justice for trump has not yet happened and moving too slowly?

That polls are bad for us? And anyone who points that out or just simply tries to post and expound on that is a downer?

Super curious

If you watch CNBC, Pence is a 100% different person.

He's relaxed. Like seemingly savvy? WTF, how multi-personality'd is this guy?

WTF, what an utter fake. What in the world is he thinking? Really thinking?
Does God tell you to be duplicitous?

To me, someone who almost got hung and runs is the epitome of moron. How crazy... He's such an ultimate tool.
