Huffington post... it's not the same after this..

now.. any information coming from them..eh.. better fact check it first or something..




I thought their turning point was their article about the importance of diversity in the workplace while posting a photo in the same article of an editorial board with a super majority of white 20 and 30 something females.

Huffington Post, if anything is fake news their website is a good place to start looking for it. I don't give anything coming out of there a grain of credibility anymore.

On another note, of course such comments if true are abhorrent.

The guy comes from the Paul LePage school of statesmanship, anyway. This isn't something new for him, and honestly he's not even being creative or original in trolling the first lady. Now, his insult for the President? That shit was original and carried shock value. It was also a supremely stupid thing to say, but at least he put some damned effort into being an obtuse knobhead for that one.

When did they inspire optimism. Literally my whole generation has been fucked by Bush and Obama. There is not optimism there is despair and misery. Have you even tried getting a job? Its horrible , wages are not rising, cost of living is increasing, and Obama are took what little is left from our paychecks making us all live in poverty.

This is not hope this is despair.


It has been a shit show. University graduates left in what amounts to indentured servitude, underemployment running rampant and putting a choke on job availability for unskilled labourers, an expanding surveillance state and roadblocking Congressional inquiry into human rights abuses, income and wealth disparity rising to outrageous and counterproductive levels, intervention in seven countries simultaneously and yet more attempts at regime change, a total lack of substantial prosecution of the people who defrauded their way into causing a global economic recession, failure to break up the financial institutions that had grown large enough to be able to throw the globe into an economic recession, halfhearted healthcare reform that ultimately amounted to regulatory capture and failed to prevent premiums and deductibles from sharply rising even if more people were technically insured and a lot of lives were saved, crumbling infrastructure in desperate want of maintenance, I could keep going, but you probably already know it all.

I can laud the Obama administration for some things, such as expansion of overtime pay for salaried employees, allowing transgender armed service personnel to serve openly and guaranteeing them access to treatment, and for Obergefell v. Hodges. Sincere kudos to be had there. But the administration dropped the ball too often on too many important things for me to call it a success. It's not good enough to be better than the McCain or Romney administrations would've been. That's not supposed to be the bar. And in a lot of the above example cases the Democrats didn't even clear that.

They need to do better. Now.

I don't think anyone is supporting what he said. Most people are shocked at what he said. What's happening is that some people think they need to do damage control, and they think the way to do it is to blame Michelle, "Hey! She started it!"

Let's say that "she did start it." It just does not do to try to minimize what he's done in response. He was completely wrong. I think everyone acknowledges that (except, perhaps, actual racists), but while some completely condemn him, others are trying to deflect, thinking it protects Trump.

It doesn't protect Trump, it makes him look worse. Trump and his people already condemned him for saying those things. That's the example everyone should have followed.

I think that's what happened.

Everyone, left and right, has been taught not to miss the opportunity to complain when it might benefit them, I think. No matter how drenched in double standards the complaint might be.

These two incidents are not equivalent. The man on that flight did not address Ivanka Trump, he was just visibly agitated. According to multiple witnesses he never once said anything to her, just a remark as he was being removed about "Trump is ruining our country, and now they are ruining our flight." Big frickin deal. Paladino's comments about Barack dying from mad cow disease after having relations with a cow, and Michelle being a man and moving back to Zimbabwe to live with Apes; those are drenched with racism. If the man on the flight had told Ivanka she was a cracker and all white people should fuck cows and die or something, then you might have a point about the equivalency. At this point though, they aren't even close.

Both incidents demonstrate the same stupidity and lack of respect. Maybe one was more nasty than the other but in the end it really doesn't matter a whole lot.

Obviously, they're not the same. Michelle wasn't cornered on a flight and berated directly. In that sense, it was less serious. In the sense you describe, more serious.

I think most of us are getting used to the idea that people are only seeking to be effective complainers to push an agenda. The reality is, both were very rude incidents that don't really call for support or comparisons favoring either side.

Oh ffs, give me a break. No one said she deserved it and there was certainly no "general consensus from the left".

What's the first thing a child says when you break up a fight (he's winning) on the schoolyard?: "He started it!"
To accept blame is to accept responsibility and take punishment. So the kid doesn't, and becomes the Wrongly Wounded Party, that he hopes will receive the milk of Mercy with a cookie.

Even when the Republicans piled shockingly inappropriate abuse on the Democratic candidate in 1988, Bush Sr. was out front defending their actions by saying that they had to "fight back, against the insults the Democrats had been throwing" at them. Oh, really.

When Trump had to finally admit that Obama was born in the good old red-white-and-blue 50th state, he publicly admitted the mistake, saying..."Hillary started it, back in '08!"

Why I remember back when George Washington called Ben Franklin a "bald idiot with glasses", but then Ben was like, "stfu you wooden toothed, wig wearing, son of a bitch."
