Seems easier to create a second post instead of editing it.
What is up with Elise Stefanik?

Absolutely unknown to me, never heard of her. Never heard of her opponent.
She them absolutely embarrasses herself with that pathetic stunt, and now her opponent is blowing up.

"We raised over $100k in just under 6 hrs". She raised 6 figures because of this.
Why was Elise so eager to give her opponent such a win? Was she already going to lose?

SOmebody had to be "That Guy" for the GOP and she is it.  The GOP and Fox news prey on their people being ignorant and this stunt shows just how much they believe them to be idiots.  Actually its so disrespectful that any Republican should really be mad.  If this is what the GOP is reduced to then I see their future in grave peril from here on out.



Around the Network

She has raised over 300k already. She has gotten 140k+ followers in 24 hours as well.
Those are amazing gains.

edit: And is now sitting at 900k and 228K followers.

So Trump lost his battle to his tax returns in New York and also in his appeals case. I am wondering how long before we start to see these tax reports made public. I personally really did not care that much to see them as I am pretty sure it will show that Trump is in a lot of debt and of course does not have the fortune he has claimed for years but since he has put up such a fuss over them, it should be interesting to see if they actually contain anything positive. Either way it should be interesting to see what he was hiding so much or was it all a dude.

The pessimist in me, believes he doesnt want to show them, because theres something to hide in there.
If its normal for every single president in US history to show them, and hes the only exception to the rule, and he wont do it even when hes been told legally he must (in this case)?

Why go through all that trouble? even if its just something small and innocent like tax evasion (which is basically a given with him imo).
Probably more drastic than that.

He's not the only one, showing your tax returns as a president (or presidential nominee) only really started in 1974 due to a rumor about Nixon giving himself some tax benefits, and releasing his tax returns showed that that wasn't true. Before him, only Roosevelt and Truman made their Tax returns public, though until Trump everyone after Nixon followed that tradition.

However, not everybody released complete tax returns, some only went with Form 1040, which leaves out crucial information. Gerald Ford for instance just submitted a summary from 10 years of tax returns without much details.



A fairly funny summary of what's happened so far:

And there's also this bit, which is quite funny =)



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

it’s the best impeachment! the greatest of all time!



Congress should give Vontaze Burfict a call. He would sack the president within a day.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

There are so many things to say about this that I don't even know where to begin.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Um...yikes?



So lets recap recently.
Trump is going to get impeached by the House.
Boris Johnson went from "I rather be dead in a ditch" to actually having to ask for an extension to brexit.
And Israeli PM Netanyahu indicted on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust.

Good things DO come in threes.
