it’s wonderful to have a person with 110% perfect hindsight having a twitter account to remind us how lucky we are…

After 4 minutes 30 seconds on TPM, I’m gone for the rest of the day. I don’t know how others are dealing with this descending nightmare, but I’m–no snark here–likely to spend very little time here as well as avoid most political news from now on. Like a mile wide asteroid coming from space, I can’t do a damn thing about it, it physically hurts to focus on it, and I’d rather spend my too few days focusing on the things that are positive in my life.

Boy, you summed up exactly how I feel even better than I could. I feel like we’re all just sitting around waiting for Judgment Day to start and there’s virtually nothing to do but just watch as the slowly unfolding Trainwreck that is surely to be the Trump Presidency happens. I definitely plan on doing what I can but mostly we’ll just have to hope that the Democrats in Congress (esp. Senate)stay strong and resilient enough to stand against the coming Republican ultimate madness.

WHY is TPM advertising to SHUT DOWN the Corrupt Clinton Foundation?? On the home page, upper left…Is it so important to monetize this site that the stakeholders have to insult us like this? What’s next? Paid advertising from the Alt-Right?

Can we also deport the white guys who killed a number of police officers over the past few weeks too? The imbalance of news coverage of white attacks on police officers and minorities vs. radical Muslim attacks is buttressing support for DT’s immigration aims.

It will be interesting the first time someone Trump disparages has to go to trial on criminal charges. The defendant’s lawyers would seemingly be able to make a good case the President of the United States had tainted and prejudiced the entire possible jury pool. What does the guy do, ask for a change of venue to New Zealand?

Why is TPM (and other media) using old pics of Trump at microphones for every story about a tweet he makes? Trump has not had a press conference in months, yet someone who comes to TPM and glances at the front page would think the man is in front of the press constantly.

This is exactly the kind of standard journalistic norms the press does that Trump has been able to benefit from his whole campaign. If Trump tweets something you shouldn’t be showing him in front of a microphone, you’re making him look like he’s acting presidential when he’s not. Once again even here on TPM you just can’t help but give him positive press coverage he wants even when you try to criticize him. Even after all that self-introspection after the election the press is still falling into the same traps.

You mean, he will go away if we ignore him ? That’s a good idea ! You are smart !

"Trump later conceded that Mateen was indeed born in the United States, but insisted that the suspect’s ideas were “born from someplace else.”
Yo Orange dude every idea thought of here on American soil was born from someplace else. We are all immigrants, even first nation folks.

Where did I say “ignore”. Just want to argue on the internet huh?

Run the story but stop using old images to give off an impression he’s in front of the press when he’s not.

I suppose Dylan Roof should have been deported…somewhere, I don’t care where…too then. I mean, this guy’s radicalization and horrible acts, if inspired by ISIS, were essentially no different than what Roof did after being inspired and radicalized by the KKK and other white supremacist groups that support Trump.

The Donald spends much of the past year condemning Muslims, hate crimes against same skyrocket and when one does break and do something violent he get into a twitter rant about how the young man should not be here. His election has done the same to a large portion of the electorate and I am waiting to see when that segment of society begins to act out. I am now living “interesting times” and am not too sure if I want to.

right on cue. If and when this happens when he’s POTUS, it’s going to be an excuse to bring on terrible things. I fear for Muslims in this country…I truly, and utterly fear for them. My father being one of them.
