Hmm - on one hand, he’s probably still the best asset the Democrats have.

On the other hand, if he just slips away from the limelight now, history will judge him extremely favourably. If he carries on getting involved, maybe he risks damaging his legacy? He perhaps feels concerned that his legacy is under attack or perhaps that he doesn’t even have much of one, but fast forward 50 years and I’m confident he’ll be remembered as one of the all time greatest US presidents.

He has been pretty quiet for a year despite being under constant attack by his successor who is dismantling everything he did for 8 years. He would have been happy to slip away if we had a “normal” person as president.

The parents are facing life in prison, but pleaded not guilty. The more I read about what happened, the more I'm sickened. I'm heartbroken for the siblings.
Hope the parents rot :angry:

After the silly claim that Trump hadn’t even dreamed of running for president when he boasted about grabbing women by the pussy, I watched the interview with Oprah in 1988 where he talks about running for president.

Although I don’t agree with 1988 Trump, he comes across MUCH better. Calm, polite, thoughtful - and speaking in actual sentences rather than one syllable grunts. That guy would have been a reasonable president, albeit with a few flaws. Already there were hints of his narcissism, arrogance, xenophobia, messiah complex and a desire to run the USA like a business. But nowhere near as bad as 2018 Trump. I wonder what went wrong?

You realize he's not a Russian, don't you? Do you even know what country he was born in?

Never thought you'd leave me alone

I haven't had a chance in hell of reading any news at all. So these people were actually the parents of all of those children? I thought they had kidnapped them. Apparently not?

Yes, I knew he wasn’t a Russian but I didn’t know he has a triple citizenship:

Yes.
Prepare yourself if you read about it, Inny. It's terrible and heartbreaking. What twisted fuckers to do it :twisted:

I must admit, I occasionally use my personal email for work purposes :(

However I have never created a shell company to pay $130,000 to a porn star, so swings and roundabouts.

Looks like Farage may have been involved in the US election hack:

I don’t know, maybe all these investigations will come to nothing. Or maybe those two crazy results in 2016 were exactly that.

Looks like everyone is involved with everything. People will wind up dead over this whole mess and no one needs to die for it.
