    The difference is that the people that paid for that guy to make potato salad probably only did so a dollar at a time.

    These trump morons, on the other hand, paid hundreds of dollars for their worthless pixels.

    True enough. Paid hundreds of dollars for something that says you own the right to look at pixels.

    "Clearly yet another Party of Trump member, expressing their mainstream belief that there was election fraud."

    Mike Lindell, correct.

    Greatest Tweet EVER! Welcome back! We missed you.
    -- Kari Lake, in a direct reply that drew thousands of likes because Kari Lake is also mainstream Party of Trump

    No, you have no right to look at the pixels. Because you have no control over where the pixels are located.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    I can't stand that shit. And conservative politicians/propagandists use that line constantly. It's part of their lethal allergy to taking responsibility, but it's just so frustrating that their audience/constituents can't see through it.

    That’s actually probably the (maliciously) smartest thing trump has said in a while.

    Remember, the gop lives off of fear. They need their people to feel afraid. Of gay people, of minorities, of people going to take your guns, of immigrants, of “corporations taking away your first amendment.”

    Trying to make Trump’s legal troubles into “the plight of the common man” is a dangerously shrewd move. Hopefully it’s just another spasmodic blurb in his string of nonsense, and not something he actually tries to capitalize on.

    Rumor is that Trump is going to be investigated for financial fraud over his NFTs. No source other than random Twitter noise from people who generally don't bullshit on this kind of stuff.

    That’s gotta be some sort of record for trump in terms of “initiation of grift to legal action” if true.

    Literally every image is stolen from some random creators or Shutterstock images, with Trump's ugly ass face plastered on them.

    I hope that's true, but I'm betting even if it is, no charges will be filed. Trump isn't selling them himself, he's got a third party doing it, and you'd think anyone doing business with Trump would triple-check the paperwork.

    Oh, better yet, someone actively found out that he "minted" around 26% of the rarest ones to himself. As I stated it earlier in the thread, it wouldn't have surprised me if he was the one that bought them to create demand.

    Granted, this is from twitter.

    One good thing about blockchain is that everything on there can be traced.

    Why am I not surprised that almost all of the 1/1 cards, went directly to him?

    So with th--

    Republicans and Patriots all over the land must stand strong and united against the Thugs and Scoundrels of the Unselect Committee. It will be a dark period in American history, but with darkness comes light!!!
    Okay, Trump has gone mad. He just quoted the World of Warcraft movie.

    So at this point, we know where this is going. Everyone from Watergate lawyer John Dean to Trump's own lawyer Ty Cobb are predicting charges filed against Trump personally. Obviously the Jan 6th panel can't do that directly but they can say "we have all this evidence, we're giving it to the DoJ, and we think there's enough to warrant charges". And that's not even including the theft of classified materials, dodging taxes, lying on his fiscal disclosure forms (how the fuck do you forget you owe money to North Korea?) or anything Trump Org related.

    Now, the DoJ may or may not actually pursue those charges. From a purely tactical perspective, it would make sense to let Trump do as much damage to the Republican Party as possible, such as by winning the primary or splitting the vote. Then arrest him. But that's playing politics and the DoJ doesn't do that -- even Barr drew the line. If the evidence really is as solid as we've seen, then the DoJ won't wait till mid-2024 to drag Trump off in tiny tiny handcuffs.

    So the question seems less "if" but "which". There seems to be a pretty substantial list of things Trump is objectively guilty of. I don't believe the DoJ will flat-out charge him with insurrection or treason. To me, the question is obstruction. Obstruction charges are no laughing matter. They are a "die in prison" level of offense. And you don't have to obstruct charges as deplorable and unAmerican as treason. You can obstruct by refusing to turn over your texts.

    Trump, in the tirade I quoted above, suggested

    These two very important tweets have been uncovered now that my account, which was shut down by the FBI, has been reinstated!
    One, Trump thinks people forgot or didn't write down what he tweeted. The internet never forgets.

    Second, Trump thinks the Jan 6th committee didn't see what he tweeted. That's just stupid.

    And third, Trump thinks his public tweets will somehow be evidence that helps him. That's not what he tried to block, claiming privilege. The evidence is his private communications.

    For someone both online and in court this often, Trump seems to have zero idea how either of them work.

    Most of the diehard Trump fans aren't interesting in politics if Trump's not on the ballot. Bunch of the Jan 6 crowd had literally never voted in an election before 2020, not even the first time Trump ran in 2016.

    Trump’s numbers were not much different from Romney’s. The deplorables voted for Romney. They just weren’t as loud about it.

    They’ll still show up for whatever shithead the GOP puts out in 2024.

    We live in the timeline where Trump was President. I don't think it's a good idea to bank on there actually being charges until charges are filed. I'm not holding my breath that anything will happen to Trump legally.

    What Hope Hicks just testified about is documented on pg. 153 of Peril, Trump's one-on-one meeting with Hicks in the days after the election.

    "I don't care about my legacy," Trump told her. "My legacy doesn't matteer. If I lose, that will be my legacy."


    I swear can we boil this down to Trump's narcissism. Did Trump try to do an insurrection just cause his ego and he didn't want to be a loser. Would be something.

    Of course it's deeper. Namely him trying to accrue power for him and especially cover his criminal activities.

    Trump got 63m in 2016, 74m in 2020. That's 11m new voters that he politically activated and who voted for him in spite of him showing what kind of man he really was. 11m pieces of shit who said, "Yeah, more of that, keep it coming." More than 11m, actually, since he lost a substantial amount of moderates and independents, many who were willing to give him a shot in 2016 just to fuck with the status quo.

    Of course, Biden picked up 15m votes over Hillary, a mix of those same moderates and independents, and left-leaning voters who didn't want a repeat of 2016.

    Anyway, point is, 11m matters. The last presidential election that had a wider gap than 11m was Reagan v Mondale.
