getting a word in edgewise has become nearly impossible in this time of a blanketing of all the media with anti-Trump messages
Apparently you don't watch "all the media" because one whole network does nothing but lie about how wonderful Trump is and most of the other networks show Trump at all of his rallies and whenever he speaks publicly. He has no trouble getting all his words in edgewise. Most of his words are whining about how everyone is mean and unfair to him, boo hoo.

and an anonymous "resister" is applauded
Maybe you should watch some news. Can you quote someone applauding the anonymous resistor?
What I have seen is criticism from the right and the left, obviously for different reasons. The right hates any one of Trump's "best people" revealing the truth about the con man in the Whitehouse. The left hates that this asshole is complicit with the treason and corruption of Trump and his criminal mob.
Have you noticed how many of the "best, wonderful, special people" appointed by Trump that have quit or been fired? More than any other administration in history. Trump is really terrible at judging character and almost everyone he has appointed is incompetent and corrupt.
Aren't you at all surprised that Trump knows this many people who have shady connections to Russia? With the former head of the KGB?

Re: Did the intern accost Acosta or did he accost her?
Acosta was being an activist and not a journalist, he was not asking questions, he was accusing the President of the usual PC perfidies, he was forcing his own definitions on the situation but when Trump did the right thing and ended his indefensble behavior it's Trump who gets the criticism, not the disruptor.
So what was it Acosta actually asked/said?
Faith writes:
(NOBODY would have talked to Obama the say this guy talked to Trump, or some of the other "journalists" there either for that matter, and if anyone had he'd have been gone gone gone and nobody would have mentioned it again.)
And Obama never talked about the press the way we see Trump talk to and about the press every time he speaks in public. Obama did not even talk that way about the right-wing ant-Obama propaganda machine.
It is the most important task of the press to ask politicians questions so the public know what they are up to.
Trump acts guilty.
Trump acts like he's special and above the law. He works for us. He does not own the Whitehouse or any other part of the government.
If Trump was innocent and had nothing to hide he would not act guilty and evasive, every fucking time he speaks, even when the purpose he was supposed to be speaking was about something else entirely.

Re: Did the intern accost Acosta or did he accost her?
There's even been a big flap about whether Acosta physically pushed the intern who tried to get the mike from him, people poring over slow- motion video to determine the question. That has become the reason for ousting him but it shouldn't be in my opinion, his rude behavior should have been reason enough.
White House shares doctored video to support punishment of journalist Jim Acosta
quote:
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Wednesday night shared a video of CNN reporter Jim Acosta that appeared to have been altered to make his actions at a news conference look more aggressive toward a White House intern.
The edited video looks authentic: Acosta appeared to swiftly chop down on the arm of an aide as he held onto a microphone while questioning President Trump. But in the original video, Acosta’s arm appears to move only as a response to a tussle for the microphone. His statement, Pardon me, ma’am, is not included in the video Sanders shared.
quote:
Critics said that video which sped up the movement of Acosta’s arms in a way that dramatically changed the journalist’s response was deceptively edited to score political points. That edited video was first shared by Paul Joseph Watson, known for his conspiracy-theory videos on the far-right website Infowars.
quote:
Side-by-side comparisons support claims from fact-checkers and experts such as Jonathan Albright, research director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, who argued that crucial parts of the video appear to have been altered so as to distort the action.
A frame-by-frame breakdown by Storyful, a social-media intelligence firm that verifies media content, found that the edited video included repeated frames that did not appear in the original footage. The repeated frames were shown only at the moment of contact and made Acosta’s arm movement look more exaggerated, said Shane Raymond, a journalist at Storyful.

In this case that is a hollow excuse for near-criminal partisanship.
Trump acts guilty.
YOu are hallucinating. The man makes some silly and lamentable mistakes but he's pretty honest and straightforward.
Trump acts like he's special and above the law. He works for us.
More hallucinations. He's doing his best to stay on top of the constant barrage of lies and hate the Left throws at him, and to my mind doing a creditable enough job of a really difficult assignment.
You are completely delusional. I should have known better than trying to discuss anything with you.

there is no right to be a boor in the White House.

Re: Dangerous media smears of innocent boys
Consciously i still resist the whole white privilege accusation. There is no reason that i should be vilified because of the behavior of my ancestors...although some racism does exist in our society and much of comes from populists.
Really? Do you get stopped by the police because you obviously don't look like you can afford that car? Do you get get stopped by the police when you are walking down the street and asked for your identification because you look shifty? Do you get followed around by clerks in the store because you look like a shoplifter?
Black and brown people deal with that bullshit every day of their lives. They have to teach their children how to behave if the are confronted by police so they don't get shot.
No one is blaming you because that doesn't happen to you. They want it to stop happening to them.
You know how it pisses you off when you have to jump through hoops to get services you paid for? Well, just for a second imagine having to deal with that every single time you interact with society.
You act as if they are treated decently that diminishes you.

Re: Senate Resolution to Condemn Trump on Foreign Policy
McConnell - who was dutifully supporting the government shutdown - is an enemy ?
Besides it is worthy of notice when a President’s policy is condemned by his own party.
I expect when it comes down to it McConnell won't do it.
McConnell and Faith both think Trump shits chocolate syrup.

Never-the-less, Trump will not face any charges and the democrats will bleat pointlessly about it. Time to move on.
Trump may not face charges, but other have and more may still face charges.
All the facts and all the evidence from Mueller's investigation and all the others must be public so Trump and his cronies cannot continue to lie about what actually happened without it being pointed out publicly.
Trump and his cronies have not behaved like honest, innocent people since the beginning of his campaign. They protest their innocence far too much and engage in malicious character assassination against everyone opposing or investigating them and they have corrupted every republican member of Congress to do their bidding.
They are totally shameless.
