This is a pattern. Here's three more recent examples of the same thing!:

See the same kind of mid-sentence jump at 56 seconds in:


BOTH times he realizes he's going down and says, "Look" to recover.

And this time (second video, at 4 seconds):


Same problem, different recovery.

GAH.. Another one with the original recovery:


He's messed up. Something is wrong with him.

When asked how hard he was holding onto her neck, Bryant stated, "My hands are strong. I don't know"

Bryant initially told investigators that he did not have sexual intercourse with his accuser, a 19-year-old woman who worked at the hotel where Bryant was staying. When the officers told Bryant that she had taken an exam that yielded physical evidence, such as semen, Bryant admitted to having sexual intercourse with her, but stated that the sex was consensual. When asked about bruises on the accuser's neck, Bryant admitted to "strangling" her during the encounter, stating that he held her "from the back" "around her neck", that strangling during sex was his "thing" and that he had a pattern of strangling a different sex partner (not his wife) during their recurring sexual encounters. When asked how hard he was holding onto her neck, Bryant stated, "My hands are strong. I don't know." Bryant stated that he assumed consent for sex because of the accuser's body language such as her kissing him, putting her hand on his penis, and bending over, but that he did not explicitly ask for her consent during the encounter. Bryant later said that he believed his accuser was capable of saying no because during the encounter he asked her if he could "cum on her face", and she said no.


But BOY he was good at sports!

Maybe Trump sees himself as basically being James Bond.

*but in a traitorous way

That could be the secret source of energy that keeps him going every day. And his cover is he's just this dumb, buffoonish, loud, insulting blowhard from Queens. Maybe it's brilliant. I don't know.. :p

Ship of fools...

That ship sailed so long ago. His party could have taken his nomination away.

They're all guilty for this rolling disaster.

To block Trump, a majority of delegates at the convention would simply have to vote to change their rules, to free themselves up to vote for whichever candidate they want. And then they'd just … nominate someone who's not Donald Trump.

This may seem shockingly undemocratic, but it's completely possible given how the convention works. The delegates get to set their own rules, and no higher body can overrule them. So they're perfectly free to change those rules at the last minute — even if those changes are obviously meant to alter the outcome of the race.
