Precisely my point, Cass. They don't care about the usual stuff -- honesty, rule of law etc, and when winning is all you care about, and the other side doesn't, then the playing field is yours. Immorality reigns supreme.

Of course, its pretty questionable what most Trump supporters are actually winning. I'm guessing most are either breaking even or losing, in personal terms. And you know, even they might miss the rule of law someday. But of course, some don't care if they lose as long as the people they see as enemies are unhappy. It's not about raising themselves or anyone; it's about trying to drag down others.
That is perhaps the most pathetic thing of all.

(FYI, I am traveling with limited access to Internet this last week or so. In case anyone missed me
Anyway. I predict that in the very near future something is going to break relating to the Steele dossier--something bad for Trump--and that Trump knows already. We’ll see if I'm right.
I say this because out of the blue, for no obvious reason, Trump has begun to viciously attack McCain, and has referenced the "fake" dossier in doing so. McCain is still dead. No new McCain things have come up. The dossier has been pretty much out of the immediate news cycle as far as I can see. There is no obvious reason to dredge them up. But Trump has a tell -- when he goes off on something in this way, it means he knows bad news is going to break and he wants to prep his base to reject it. I am stocking up on popcorn, just in case.
This is the OP of this thread. Wondering if that popcorn taste like bird?

So we're actually not going to get a redacted version of the report. We're going to get another summary in a few weeks, which will then be redacted by the White House. Oh, and the number of pages in the actual Mueller report? That's a secret.
But I'm totally sure the Mueller report is chock full of good stuff exonerating Trump and there is nothing to hide. Viva transparency!
The ads write themselves. If Democrats don't run with this in 2020, they are fools.
Heartless, vicious motherfuckers. I read this yesterday: Trump golfed 270 times since becoming president. If he'd only golfed 250 times, the savings would have been sufficient to pay for the Special Olympics.
The more I think about it, the more I think that if we play it right, we can do quite a bit with the failure to release the Mueller report. Won't give his taxes, has his lackeys hiding the report...and looking what's coming out in the jurisdictions Trump can't control. This is a dude with a lot to hide, and it couldn't possibly be more obvious.
Oh, look what's on Amazon and Walmart, with a forward by Trump buddy, Alan Dershowitz.
According to Amazon, the April 30 release date is a placeholder. It also says the book is 960 pages long-- wonder if that's a placeholder, too. But gotta love that the administration is being all top secret about the length etc. of the report, yet here they've got the marketing all set up and an arrangement for the forward.
It'll be fun to see if it is really 960 pages when it comes out. We of course do not know the actual length of the full Mueller report. But if this is the length of Bart's redacted summary, how does he know that know if he's still putting it together?
To note, I have the official 9/11 commission report on my shelves. It is 567 pages long, including the lengthy endnotes. There is a preface; it is by the Commission, not some Bush-friendly talking head lawyer.
