    Are you eager to solve a word problem about a boat with a tremendously powerful battery on it causing it to sink into the water, and there's a shark 10 yards away? What do you do? Jump in the water to be eaten? Get electrocuted by the battery?!

    MIT Professors have never answered such an oddly specific question but Donald Trump is very excited about it! And to talk about sharks and how they attack people all the time! Which they don't, but that doesn't matter, someone tell him it's not shark week yet.

    Here he is, the Republican parties presidential nominee, a Very Stable Genius(TM).

    Fox News edited out a section of an interview last Sunday where former Presidnet Donald Trump appeared to retreat from a promise to declassify files related to sex offender and financier Jeffrey Epstein, Semafor reported. The exchange, part of a June 2 sit-down with Fox News Sunday, was cut from the TV broadcast but later reappeared in full on Will Cain's Fox News radio show.

    Asked whether he would declassify files related to 9/11, the JFK assassination, and Epstein, Trump asserted that he would — and on the TV broadcast, that was the end of it. The unedited version reveals that Trump was not so sure.

    "I guess I would," Trump said. "I think that less so because, you don’t know, you don’t want to affect people’s lives if it’s phony stuff in there, because it’s a lot of phony stuff with that whole world. But I think I would, or at least —"

    "Do you think that would restore trust — help restore trust?" the interviewer, Rachel Campos-Duffy, then asked in an effort to steer the former president back on course.

    "Yeah. I don’t know about Epstein so much as I do the others. Certainly about the way he died," Trump replied. "It’d be interesting to find out what happened there, because that was a weird situation and the cameras didn’t happen to be working, etc., etc. But yeah, I’d go a long way toward that one."
    I'm sure the same crowd of conservatives that lost their shit over an edited response to a Bill Clinton interview during Hillary's 2016 campaign will be fucking livid to read that Fox News edited out part of Donald's response where he seemed to indicate that he would keep records related to Jeffrey Epstein secret.

    Why is Donald protecting a dead pedophile?

    The Fox broadcast on June 2 also cut out segments in which Trump recalled having "nice conversations" with the Taliban and referenced the "n-word" to describe Russia's threat to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine.

    But Fox did elect to keep another Trump falsehood: his claim that he declassified many of the files related to President John F. Kennedy's assassination. "I did a lot of it," he said. He didn't.
    Damn, cutting out that time Donald bragged about how well he gets along with terrorists, too? And his continued fear of the word "nuclear" (wrong n-word)?

    Donald Trump: Pedophile protector!

    While speaking to a crowd in Las Vegas in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees, Trump bragged about one of his supporters who had attended more than 200 of his rallies.

    “Wouldn’t it be incredible—he’s gone to 250—if he voted for Biden?” he said, according to a clip from the rally. “He’s going to vote for Biden? I don’t think so. It would be suicide before Biden, right?
    Is...Donald running a suicide cult?

    The former president also joked on Sunday that he was more focused on getting people's votes than caring for his supporters, referencing the many supporters who left the rally early due to the sweltering heat.

    "I don't want anybody going on me," he said. "We need every voter. I don't care about you. I just want your vote. I don't care." He then claimed that the media would find a way to twist those words.
    Imagine voting for a guy that repeatedly tells you he doesn't care about anything beyond your vote.

    Donald Trump met with his probation officer today and sent out a fundraising email. Yes, a presidential candidate is fundraising off of the fact that he has to speak with a probation officer.

    Chuck Hand, of Georgia is running for Congress as a Republican, specifically Georgia's 2nd District, and attended a debate for the seat.

    He was asked about the farm bill and the House Republicans current proposal, including their proposal to cut food aid for low-income Americans.

    Chuck Hand, whose left eye appears to be desperately trying to flee his face, proceeds to introduce himself and say how he's ever lived there and how he doesn't want to debate in the debate he attended, and gives his platform of, "I like MAGA" without further elaboration in his little prepared speech.

    He then fucked right off because he's a fundamentally unserious loser, like most Republicans nowadays, it seems.

    The absolute state of Republican politics continues to present a compelling argument against democracy.

    Compare this to Obama who only increased the government workforce by 0.3% and Trump, 0.9%.

    https://ourpublicservice.org/read-watch-listen/blog/

    This should be worrisome to all as it's not sustainable. Government doesn't produce goods. Government jobs don't reduce inflation or allow for competition to bring prices down. And all of this doesn't even take into account that for the first couple of years of his Biden's term, almost all of the "new" jobs were simply people returning to work from COVID.

    Someone should press him on why the need to add SO MANY government jobs just to prop up the numbers.
    read that again. was it his term or the year 2023?

    More importantly, he was comparing apples to oranges.

    Roughly 23.5% of the new jobs were government jobs, but that represents only a 3.2% increase in total government jobs. And it's even more of non-issue when you look at his entire term, as you said; government jobs have only gone up 7.0% compared to an increase of 11.6% for the rest of the non-farm jobs during Biden's first term so far.

    I see no problem here:



    In fact, Trump oversaw an average of +14.9k / mo. new government jobs pre-COVID. From that point to now, we're only back to what would be an +8.9k / mo. average government job growth, so we're hardly "caught up" to pre-pandemic rates still.

    Yo, Sinclair out here pushing that hilariously bad WSJ hit piece sourced to anonymous Republicans who clearly have a deep knowledge of the internal workings of the Biden campaign.

    They could at least send out slightly different scripts to their local network stations. It's a shame that outfits like Sinclair exist to continue to destroy the credibility of local media.

    Trump supporters have a hard time understanding this. They absolutely worship Trump which makes them think everyone else must do the same exact thing for their candidate. They'll then say stuff like "How did Biden win? I never see anyone wearing Biden merchandise!" Lots of them genuinely think that's proof of fraud, even though it's really just proof of their unhealthy obsession.

    Republican Kari Lake will not get a do-over of the 2022 election she lost in the governor's race, the Arizona Court of Appeals ruled late Tuesday.

    Nor is Lake entitled to a new trial, the judges said, to present evidence she claims was unavailable the first time she went to court to challenge her election loss to Democrat Katie Hobbs.

    The judges acknowledged there are legal procedures to resurrect a case, even after a judge has ruled, such as whether evidence was available at the time. But they said Lake's claims don't fit any of the requirements.

    And in one case, they noted, Lake did have the evidence at the time of the trial, which she claimed would show misconduct in the handling of the election — but she didn't present it because her expert didn't have time to study it.

    "The rule does not provide relief for one who possesses documents at the time of an election contest, but does not have the time, for whatever reason, to analyze them,'' wrote appellate Judge Sean Brearcliffe.
    Kari Lake better hope her Senate race fairs better than her gubernatorial run. Because she's exhausted her legal challenges to redo the 2022 election on account of, "She lost" and that's fair.

    Were any of those special elections i.e. not in November in even-numbered years? How did turnout compare in this one to past special elections?

    I keep hoping against hope this is a pattern that's not being picked up in the polls.

    I think the pattern is clear. The real question is whether it would also apply to the Presidential ballot. As transparent as it is to most of us that Biden is absolutely a better choice than Trump to sit in the Oval Office regardless of whether or not you believe the whole "herp derp dementia" narrative I could see people skipping the top slot and just voting down ballot for the rest.

    Want to see how radically different Republicans are reacting to Donalds conviction vs. Hunter's conviction?

    One was an outrage, a travesty of justice, the end of law and order and justice in our Republic. A partisan witch hunt.

    The other is fair and righteous and proof of the system working and it's the correct outcome because the Biden's are all criminals.

    Meanwhile, libs are perfectly fine with both criminals being found guilty of their respective crimes and facing any penalties that they may face.

    It's fun seeing the cognitive dissonance and dishonesty side-by-side in real-time though.

    Fantastic WashPo article to keep in mind about how informed the "average American voter" is. There's more than this, but the bullets are indicative of the overall story -

    1 in 5 voters in the Yahoo/YouGov survey said either that they didn’t know about Trump’s Manhattan verdict, that Trump was not guilty or that the trial was ongoing. That includes 2 out of every 5 registered voters under the age of 30.

    A majority of independents have said they’ve heard only “a little” or “nothing at all” about Trump’s classified-documents indictment, according to Marquette University Law School polling.

    Just 1 in 5 voters in a May Reuters/Ipsos poll said they were familiar with Trump having said that purported voter fraud in the 2020 election “allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”

    Republicans, especially, will often tell pollsters things about Donald Trump and his legal problems that are simply wrong.

    Voters also believe strikingly wrong things about the economy, including a majority believing we’re in a recession and half thinking unemployment is at a 50-year high. (Unemployment has actually been at 4 percent or below for its longest stretch in those 50 years.)
    Now Republicans telling pollsters things that are simply just wrong is predictable at least, but the rest is good stuff to provide context for a lot of the stupid shit that's to come.

    Your average American, even if they may personally have quite a bit at stake in this upcoming election, simply doesn't have the interest of the bandwidth to follow politics.

    66% chance of Trump winning per The Economist's model. They also had Biden winning big back in 2020.

    Alan Lichtman, the guy that has been right on the last 9 elections, including Trump beating Hillary, Obama beating Romney, and Biden beating Trump, says that Trump has a low chance but with his 13 steps to the Whitehouse, he says Biden will win. And with Trump losing in the polls now, and his conviction, and with the news coming out every day about Trump's racism, and Democrats outperforming polling by 11 points on average. I can almost guarantee Trump doesn't win.

    Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) can’t fight the urge keep playing dress-ups, once again defending his misleading combat award medal. Nehls was ridiculed by his Republican colleagues, who took offense to him wearing a Combat Infantryman badge for service in Afghanistan, despite it being rescinded by the Army in March 2023. Nehls disputed the revoking of his honor pin and denied he is committing “stolen valor.” In a letter sent to the U.S. Army Human Resources Command, and shared on his X account on Wednesday, Nehls wrote, “I further believe this is a concerted effort to discredit my military service and continued service to the American people as a Member of Congress.” Nehls claimed to news outlet NOTUS that his honors were being disputed because he is “Mr. MAGA guy.” Records indicate that Nehls was an infantry soldier and officer before 2003 but he was deployed to Afghanistan as a civil affairs officer in 2008 when he received his medal, according to NOTUS. It was therefore rescinded for being mistakenly awarded.
    Republicans love their stolen valor and persecution complexes.

    Rep. Troy Nehls still seems unwilling to accept that he was awarded a combat service badge in error because damnit despite not seeing combat during his tour he earned it!

    Weird group of dudes with main character syndrome. Very unserious people.

    Except the Republicans saying the only reason Hunter was found guilty was Biden is trying to make it seem like things are fair and why Trump was found guilty, but really it's all a cover up for the deeper "crimes" of Biden's crime family. It's all stupid.
