Don't worry they are all about decorum. /s

Yeah, then she's a moron because Trump is a notorious liar and has a history of racist act, behaviours and statements. Working for him as a PoC in a non labor, high paying position and being used as a prop by a congressman with a history of racist comments, doesn't seem right for someone claiming they are highly educated and not low-info.
Trump got dunked on a whole lot.
Hard to tell for us. But yes, i certainly got that impression.
That is sad. They seem extremely malicious and constantly ready to twist and turn the news on events to actively lie to people. Willingly.
It seemed to me that the committee might go after Weisselberg (Trump Org CFO) next and also get serious about subpoenaing Trump's tax returns. At the very least, these were the two things that Cohen was signposting repeatedly during the hearing.
They're probably inflated anyway. Even if they are on the low side. I've have yet to see any sign of intelligence from him.It seemed to me that the committee might go after Weisselberg (Trump Org CFO) next and also get serious about subpoenaing Trump's tax returns.

Of course, I'm hoping that we'll also see Trump's SAT scores at some point simply for the lulz.
Well, this was just Cohen. There is more. So hopefully at the end of it all, the orange fuck goes away.
That doesn't seem like a big deal to me. The country is so divided that I highly doubt even watching the totality of this would change many people's minds on Trump. If you didn't think Trump was a racist or liar before, this wouldn't sway you, like the R reps, you'd just argue about Cohen's trustworthiness and completely ignore the fact that his previous lying implicates your hero. If you thought Trump was unfit for office before, well, this didn't really bring up anything you didn't know. The main thing is if they can get some legal traction from this. And maybe the soundbites reach those who are undecided and somehow otherwise ignoring everything that's happening, but I'm not sure how far down the sand your head has to be to have just missed everything that has already happened in this administration.When I heard him open and say "President Trump is a racist, a conman, and a cheat." I just immediately rolled my eyes and sighed. Not because I disagree, but because I know I just saw the news byte. That's the only thing we'll ever see from the testimony on the news networks who are only interested in sensationalism and not substance
This line of questioning to ERA is a bit redundant. We don't know. We're not there and we don't make the decisions. Yes, we hope something colossal will come down and squash these republican roaches but this all just happened yesterday. None of us have the answers so everyone will have to wait and see together.
From what I've read, they know he is a racist and a liar, but he gets their policies done, which is all that matters. They will point to how all politicians do bad things and quote scripture that showed how in ancient times, they worked with bad people to get good things done.If you didn't think Trump was a racist or liar before, this wouldn't sway you, like the R reps, you'd just argue about Cohen's trustworthiness and completely ignore the fact that his previous lying implicates your hero.

If I were lazy and pulling from the conservative playbook I would accuse congress of trying to violate someone's freedom of speech by trying to get them under oath say they will not write a book about their experience, but also I'm eating breakfast so you know, got a lot on my plate at the moment.
npr had the whole thing on the radio live where I liveAs someone who primarily gets his news from NPR, and I listened a bit today, all they seemingly had to play over and over again was the 5 seconds where Michael Cohen called Trump a racist and a bigot.
Why not more clips of actual discussion on the floor, like this? This helps me understand what's going on. A hot clip that loses steam in 10 minutes as soon as they invite multiple republican house members to talk their way around that.. I can only assume television news coverage is worse, as I tend to consider NPR comparatively highly. We really need a revolution in media. I get more out of audio and video of actual government discussions and I bet most people would too. Instead it's like it needs to be softened, dampened, selected into the most cliche and stereotypical partisan statements, throwing the rest into the void.
How do we explain Meadows' best friendship with Cummings?
I mean, she's an employee that willingly works for him.
I always get the impression that part of it is feeling like the "model minority" and feeling like they're rebelling against what's expected of them.
That she isn't claiming to have been the one who came forward and said 'Let me defend him at this hearing' sort of underlines that she was used as a prop. And no matter how smart your are, or how clearly you understand your role, doesn't mean you aren't being used.
Lol I don't know. The only racists around me that I can stomach are some in-laws. Other than that my rightwing racist friends quota is filled.
So a few things came out, many things we knew but some were just confirmation or hints of where to look. I haven’t read a lot of analysis and I missed more of the hearing than I’d like, but I still caught a few things.
