So there for if what you imply were true, does that make it then right what Trump is doing? If it was so outrageous for the Clinton's then why the acceptance, excuses and defection for another now?
It does not make it right for Trump. That is not my argument.
I am just indicating how hollow is the indignation of the Clintonistas.

And the Clintons also recognize this. I see where they both will be undertaking a public tour. A shameless duo who are emboldened by the relative success of the Trump minstrel show.

Trump and the Clintons feed off each other. They are in the same circus.

Um, no. Not comparable in scope.
Try again.

That's no way to talk about Marsha Blackburn, even if it's true.

The Clintons are the forerunners of Trump.

The Clintons are the windows through which Trump climb.

I imagine Trump saying to himself before he made his run: Well Clinton did it, I can too.
There is no comparing anybody in this country to the deranged malignant narcissist current occupant of the oval office.

Comparing either of the Clinton's to Donald Trump is as utterly moronic as anything I've heard in a long, long fucking time.

Perhaps even more moronic than your original comparison.

Watch him make fun of the woman again. Watch how a republic dies in the empty eyes of an empty man who feels nothing but his own imaginary greatness, and who cannot find in himself the decency simply to shut the fuck up even when it is in his best interest to do so. Presidents don't have to be heroes to be good presidents. They just have to realize that their humanity is our common humanity, and that their political commonwealth is our political commonwealth, too.

Mr. Pierce pretty much nails it. It seems like we're living in the end times so bleakly and cynically described by H.L. Mencken.

"As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._L._Mencken


Call me na´ve but I have to believe we will survive the era of Trump, it's going to take an enormous amount of work and a huge investment in education going forward.

In the meantime, I'm waiting to see what happens in the upcoming elections before despairing completely of the American experiment. s/?
I believe we will survive all of this but, it must get far worse before the watershed occurs. Therefore, the pigs will win in November and the atrocious behavior will continue to grow more tragic, absurd and bizarre. Sorry, Bob.
