    Trump on tape saying he hopes the Supreme Court ends The ACA after Republicans spent the entire Barrett hearing saying they had no interest in ending The ACA seems like the bigger news of the day that actually matters to normal people.

    And as I said earlier today, gives Biden a big talking point for tonight’s debate.  We’ll see if Biden uses it, but it’s definitely a bad move by Trump.

    I honestly can’t wait for tonight’s meltdowns(yes plural) when his mic has been muted. 

    I am SURE this will go well for him. :rolleyes:

    i think he’s going to interrupt with the mic muted to make Biden stop and sputter.  They’re only muting the mics for the first 2-minute statements on each topic, by the way.  I don’t think they’ll mute them at other times.

    Most people tend to care about things that impact them directly and effect their day to day, like the economy.

    When it comes to government corruption and nepotism nobody cares. Sure there will be a small group that will be outraged but the majority will not care.

    Now a pandemic that is in everyone's state that has brought the economy to it's knees. There's no escaping that. 

    Which is why all of these distractions and non-stories won't have an effect this year.

    Lol. You did the same thing with Hillary. "But her emails!!!" was endlessly posted here bc none of you cared about her being involved in this same kinda ****. So no... I have absolutely no interest in showing an ounce of interest in what you guys are concerned with now.

    Um, the Clinton emails didn’t show any wrongdoing, let alone criminal activity.  That’s why I didn’t care about them.  So far the same is true for this Hunter Biden stuff.  Just because somebody hacks an email account doesn’t mean the victim of that hack did something wrong.  

    And I think 225,000 dead Americans already and around 1,000 more dying every day is a much bigger deal.  Like, I think that’s objectively more concerning than some sketchy email dump of a person who isn’t even running for office.  :shrug:

    Alright. Long as y'all don't care, I'm gonna give the same treatment to the Trump BS.

    Yall act like you're SO concerned about stuff like voter suppression,  yet ignored for 3 years the guy that I voted for being spied on and an attempt to remove him from office. It's the main reason I've never taken any of the Trump criticism seriously from any of you. You only care about stuff when it affects your side. That's fine. You can expect me to show the same attitude.

    It's why I roll my eyes at stuff like JPowers rant here. You guys have been outraged every single day of this Presidency - and a lot of it turned out to be fake news. You didn't care. But now, when faced with your side doing what you CLAIM Trump has been doing, suddenly it's cool because Biden is just normal corruption.  Lol. Nah.

    I mean, had you showed an ounce of concern about the corruption by Trump and his kids over the past several years then it would be one thing.  But your concern about corruption only seems to peak when it involves some accusation against Democrats.  People might take this fixation on Hunter Biden more seriously if you were consistent when it comes to concern about corruption.

    Oh, and almost everybody in this thread has actually said that Hunter Biden’s actions were wrong.  Most of us actually have spoken against the nepotism.  But in the grand scheme of things, this latest stuff is just a small ball distraction from the much, much bigger issue of covid and the government’s failed response.  Hunter Biden’s actions hasn’t resulted in hundreds of thousands of people dying and around 800-1,000 more people dying every day.

    Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, earned at least $36 million in income outside their White House roles in 2019, according to financial disclosure forms released on Friday. 

    The income, first reported by The Washington Post, is from the businesses, properties, and other assets owned by the couple.

    According to the Post, the amount is about $7 million higher than their earnings in 2018, and the real amount may be as high as $157 million, as the Office for Government Ethics does not require officials to submit exact but only approximate income figures. 

    Ivanka Trump is President Donald Trump's eldest daughter. Both she and her husband serve as senior advisers in her father's administration, though neither receives a wage.

    “Not only has the Trump Foundation shut down for its misconduct, but the president has been forced to pay $2 million for misusing charitable funds for his own political gain. Charities are not a means to an end, which is why these damages speak to the president’s abuse of power and represent a victory for not-for-profits that follow the law. Funds have finally gone where they deserve — to eight credible charities. My office will continue to fight for accountability because no one is above the law — not a businessman, not a candidate for office, and not even the president of the United States.”

    Additionally, as part of the settlement, Trump was required to agree to 19 admissions, acknowledging his personal misuse of funds at the Trump Foundation, and agreed to restrictions on future charitable service and ongoing reporting to the Office of the Attorney General, in the event he creates a new charity. The settlement also included mandatory training requirements for Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump, which the three children have already undergone. Finally, the settlement required the Trump Foundation to shutter its doors last December and dissolve under court supervision.

    No....making deals where Hunter alleges his father was getting 50% of his salary (ya know, at Burisma..where Joe got the investigating prosecutor fired) is a big nothing burger that no one cares about and none of you would be shrieking harpies if this story involved Trump. 

    NPR literally reported on Borat. Numerous people have authenticated the emails at this point. How many confirmations does it take? Again, every outlet reported on Steele dossier. These emails have more confirmation, but the media refuses to do its job because they are actively rooting for a candidate. 

    Still not seeing any concern about the corruption by Trump and his children.  Still don’t care about Hunter Biden, especially since I have a student who just got sick with covid and might need to go to the hospital.  

    I do care that Trump is ignoring the covid situation as cases spike, and that he’s hosting reckless rallies where thousands of people are packed together without masks and social distancing, which is contributing to the increasing cases we’re seeing around the country.

    Well, it's at least amusing to read you guys say that you don't care about "normal" corruption. 😆

    Also, our media needs to be destroyed and rebuilt. NPR needs to be defunded. In a week, we've gone from it being disinfo to it being a distraction...lol.

     

    I’m still a “who cares”, especially since you haven’t said a word about any of Trump’s corruption, let alone the corruption of his kids while he’s in the WH.  But you might want to read the full statement...

    There are many, many red flags in that New York Post investigation. NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik detailed most of them here. Intelligence officials warn that Russia has been working overtime to keep the story of Hunter Biden in the spotlight. Even if Russia can’t be positively connected to this information, the story of how Trump associates Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani came into a copy of this computer hard drive has not been verified and seems suspect. And if that story could be verified, the NY Post did no forensic work to convince consumers that the emails and photos that are the basis for their report have not been altered. 

    But the biggest reason you haven’t heard much on NPR about the Post story is that the assertions don’t amount to much. 

    “We don't want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don't want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions,” NPR Managing Editor for News Terence Samuel told me. “And quite frankly, that's where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”

    The handful of stories that NPR has produced about the NY Postinvestigation have been limited to how Facebook and Twitter are restricting distribution of the story or how families of those seeking treatment for addiction are impacted by the portrayal of Hunter Biden's struggle. — Kelly McBride

    ^^^Seems perfectly reasonable to me.

    So first, it wasn't real... now, it's real, but nobody cares...

    Also, the whole "Trump has murdered 200k people!!!" is stupid. He's not God. I can show you links from March where they said up to 2.2 million people would probably die here and that 200k people would die "if we did everything perfectly."  Obviously, everything wasn't done perfectly, but this BS where you blame a President for a virus spreading is the height of stupidity. I see none of you calling for Cuomo's head, and he actually made decisions to send infected people into nursing homes - the most high risk folks there are.  So spare me. And don't come at me with BS that I don't care about people - I have multiple ppl in my family who have had it and know multiple people who have died. I also understand that no President is God and is going to stop folks from dying from a virus.

    There’s still no reason to think it’s real...or at least they were on some laptop...because it hasn’t been verified by a credible source.

    Never said Trump murdered them.  I said that 225,000 people are dead from covid.  And Trump still has no plan for it and is basically just acting like it doesn’t exist, which is part of the reason why we have deaths equal to a 9/11 every 3-4 days.  

    So who cares about some Hunter Biden nonsense that, even if true, is no worse than the grift and corruption from Trump himself and his own kids going on in the White House as we speak.  Not to mention, it’s just a dumb political strategy that does nothing to convince swing voters to support Trump.

    LOL! I wondered in to ****. This whole thread is comical. I could count the number of people with a social IQ of over 50 on one hand and still hold my coffee. Atlanta Falcons has a mod in here questioning and insulting probably half their fan base because of their personal decisions. Not a good look. In case most of you do not know what social intelligence is. It is the ability to see yourself as others see you. You think you are making reasonable arguments when most people just hear endless screeching. You are the people at the party who talk too loud so no one can get you to shut up. People do eventually get tired of it and eventually move away to where you have no one to listen but yourself. 

    Sadly we see this throughout society. People going on unhinged rants thinking they sound reasonable and intelligent when what most of the country actually hears is this https://trendingviews.co/video/screaming-woman-says-she-s-terrified-because-of-republicans-we-re-losing-our-democracy-13998.html

    Imagine that thinking you are losing a democracy because people have the audacity to disagree with you
