    Keep selling yourself that if that's what your agenda requires.

    Such as the actual, signed checks to Cohen for reimbursement and the recorded phone call that made it clear that he KNEW what this payment was for and his business filings listing it a business expense.

    Sure they did. They did so when they continued promoting Trump even after he attempted to steal the election. But if Trump supporters were willing to acknowledge objective facts, then I guess there wouldn't be any Trump supporters.

    One way or another I really don't care. I already stated I hope Trump is arrested. I'm amused watching Democrats mentally tripping over themselves.

    I wish I could say that seeing Trump supporters support the overthrow of the rule of law the same way they supported the overthrow of our democratic elections was as amusing.

    The law says otherwise.

    Now, you're just resorting to hyperbole. I'll hang with ya for awhile longer if you promise to stop it. :)

    There you go calling objective facts hyperbole again. I'll hang with ya for awhile longer if you promise to actually acknowledge the existence of objective reality, but I won't be holding my breath. Counting down to you running away again with your famous catchphrase in 3 . . . 2 . . .

    I'll just leave this here in case some are truly interested in thinking about the absurdity of it all. As some of us have already mentioned in this thread. (see bolded enlarged font)

    I'm happy to talk about the specifics if you want to be the first Trump supporter capable of discussing specifics. Meanwhile, I'm starting to think you are just pretending to be a Trump supporter. Trump supporters LOVE "playground replies." Their God Emperor is a champion of them.

    There's nothing objective about an exaggerated opinion.

    There's nothing exaggerated about it. There's a reason why I'm capable of discussing the specifics and you aren't.

    Considering you have to practically kill someone in NY to get prosecuted these days, it's a fair question, considering it's only a misdemeanor charge. Or maybe a misdemeanor that has been magically uplifted to a felony, though I don't know how that can even happen. Still, people are carjacking folks and not getting investigated, arrested, or prosecuted, and he's gonna go after this one guy because he paid a hooker to keep her mouth shut? I thought that was the primary reason to pay hookers in the first place. The sex is free, it's the silence that gets paid for. And going away.

    But this is Trump, and everyone hates Trump, especially NYC dems. Oh, and you. So he gets special treatment.

    And I'm actually fine with him either not running voluntarily, not being able to run based on some technicality, or not winning, because I am currently Team Desantis, although this Vivek guy has caught my attention in a good way, but I need to know a lot more about him to know if I could support him. But the first interview I saw from him, he's talking about literally shutting down entire departments, so he's speaking my language, bigly.

    Don't you get tired of trotting out the Democratic Party's stale talking points?

    That's your opinion again. And when your opinion fails to win the day for you, do you really believe ad homs work better?

    The Eastman Memo is not my opinion. It's real. And that's not what "ad hom" means.

    The Eastman Memo isn't a Dem talking point. It exists.

    There is the possibility that Alvin Bragg "is trying to inflate a misdemeanor into a felony by applying – to a national election for federal office – state campaign laws that are not even enforced criminally in New York".

    In the 1/6 committee bizarro world it matters.
    The rest of us know better.

    In reality, it matters. These were things Trump pushed Pence to do. The committee didn't write the memo. Eastman did. And Trump supported it. The rest of us know better than to pretend that "I just want to pretend it doesn't exist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" is the rational argument of a thinking adult.

    How could I have predicted that you would still run away and hide from objective facts? I must be a prophet.
