What do Republicans feel will happen if they say "Black Lives Matter"?

They have no problems lying about anything else so why can they not allow theses words to come from their mouths?

Did anyone else notice Trump call the Boeing CEO a dumb son of a bitch?

I know that it was a night of big hits, but he said it.

Donald Trump: (50:03)
So here’s what happened, the bottom line. Boeing says, “No way, no way, no way.” The next week they say, “No way we’re doing it.” The next week they said, “How about $5 billion?” I said, “No way. No way.” The next week they said, “$4.8.” I said, “Nope. It’s got to have a 3 at the front of it. Don’t you understand, you dumb son of a bitch? Don’t you understand?” I turned out to be right. Turned out to be right. Nobody gets that. Nope. Got to have a three. Next day, they come back, “$4.5 is our best offer.” “Nope. I’m not doing it. I’m not doing it. Come back when you’re ready.” A month goes by, another month, they never heard about it, they never heard from me, they thought I was serious, I was, and they came back at $4 billion.

I count my blessing that groups like the Lincoln Project

...are going after him so aggressively because that is the type of campaigning that Democrats never had the nerve to do. We never had a Lee Atwater, or Karl Rove. Clinton had the Ragin Cajun, James Carville but no one else will take him.

Trump Repeats a False Claim That Doctors 'Execute' Newborns

He did it again last night in Tulsa, tucked in between some other ridiculous claim like abolishment of the 2nd amendment.
I understand it is exhausting defending against idiotic issues but damnit these are being repeated without anyone calling him out on these ignorant claims which makes other idiots without the ability to reason believe such babbling.

How can Trump sue a network claiming fake polling...

... when his campaign is littering progressive web pages with fake polls? Why would a competent judge even hear a cash to that effect?

Who could ever vote for this?

... not the fact that he is bald / has thin hair, but the fact that he is covering it up with a combover (which is a lie) and then covering up the combover with a MAGA hat (another lie) then even lying about the hat calling it election marketing which does seem to sell in lower educated populations.

Franklin Graham is wrong on all fronts

Constitutional freedom is granted to each individual to have for themself. No one has the right to impose their beliefs and views upon another person.
Religious freedom means you have the absolute right to worship and pray to any God that you choose. A person does not have the right to impose, or force his views on another person.
Franklin Graham wants to have the right to discriminate against homosexual people, as well as encourage others to discriminate. That is an infringement against the rights of those he has discriminated against.
Warren Jeffs wants the right to marry and keep as his wives as many minor female children as he wishes. That violates the civil rights of these young girls. What makes Warren Jeffs problem any different than Jeff Epstein? Simply shield of religion.
Using Franklin Graham’s model of “freedom of religion”, you can use the shield of religion to justify any abuse of the rights of other people, which for them there isn’t freedom at all.
Mr Graham’s religion teaches him to love thy neighbor and to charge no interest, strange how he can pick and choose which passages of his book of beliefs to practice.
