If I was in the sweep, my money would have been on "unearthed recording", as there is zero chance the buffoon hasn't violated every taboo already, it's just a matter of waiting for the tapes to surface.

Also: when - not if - he drops the N-bomb, the GOP will suddenly develop amnesia about that time they threw a shit fit when Obama said it.

It's pronounced 'Nuc-u-lar'.

Trump, and his supporters, are a disgrace to humanity, and no amount of supposed telling-it-like-it-is changes that.

 Have you spoken to all of the millions of Trump supporters? do you know them personally? I'm no Trump supporter, but I wouldn't go as far as describing them collectively as a disgrace to humanity. Try not being so dogmatic, speak to people, try to understand other peoples views, and what has led them to adhere to those views. Generalising... I thought we were passed that?

If you're happy to support a man who thinks neo-nazis are "good people" and endorses an alleged paedophile for the US Senate, I don't much care what led you to adopt that position.

I'm not generalising, I'm being very specific: deliberately and knowingly supporting a head of state who conducts himself in the manner that Trump does means that person brings (additional) shame on our species. It is disgraceful to listen to the shit that flows out of that dangerous baboon and say "yay Trump, telling the hard truths, have my vote": that goes for anyone that is even slightly aware of themselves and the world around them.

I fully appreciate the levels of ignorance, hardship and social conditioning that may bring an individual to that point,  but it in no way diminishes the disgrace. People do stupid things for all sorts of understandable reasons: it doesn't mean the aren't stupid.

I agree. Just look at the number of people who still believe in voting despicable morons into power and then feeling honour bound to do as they say...

Well, I'm glad it's a cool bar and not a dive. If ever I find myself in the vicinity, I'll have to search it out and take a suitably staged selfie (naked, of course...).

No need for clasper-shaming.  I'm sure the Shark is just as nature intended, dorsal and ventral.

I'm exactly as Nature intended. Unfortunately, she formulated these intentions in the middle of that phase during which she became fascinated by the concept of miniaturisation.

I think you meant to say "it's cold out."

You sure it's not "It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere?"

Are you alone?  More or less?
