Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

Nov 8 : Time to edit the wiki. Biggest upset in American History according to Michael Isikoff.

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

What's law when there's gossip instead?

It will lead nowhere, but leaves a very big question. Here the Obama admin was actively interfering and Lynch met with Bill. That did not lead Comey to do anything to try and make sure there would be a special prosecutor. Only when Trump fires him he then needs to leak things to put the pressure on for a special prosecutor.

he did say that there is a whole classified component to his response to the lynch meeting could be nothing bit could be a big piece that we are missing.
honestly everything he describes about his interactions with Trump sound very Trumplike. ultimately it's one person's word vs another's but if I was a betting man I would go all in on comey

I agree, but Comey does not look like the paragon of integrity that some are making him out to be. His testimony did not add much of anything about Trump but left me 26th serious questions about him.

Not true. His memos would carry significant weight in legal proceedings.

I don't think so. Not unless they were corroborated independently.

Not anymore that he testified that he is a political schemer and that the memos were a part of it.

The difference is that if you didn't see it yourself you still have no idea of what really went down there...

Then you need to base it on the individuals involved.

2 things.

1. Is the actual media coverage. Even after a debate the majority usually agree who won. Everyone is claiming victory here.

2. Comey vs Trump.
Comey definitely has more integrity then Trump. However this testimony was his only chance to prove himself to the public as a no nonsense FBI director​ that wasn't scared to take on the president etc.  And that there were others ( Trump/White House/Loretta Lynch ) that were politicizing the investigations and trying to politicize the FBI and only because of him... You can go on and on.

With that said I don't believe that he was lying but he would know how to leave impressions that he's the good guy. ( FE the leaking of the memo's, he may have been trying to salvage his image but of course he only meant the special prosecutor.)

I do. They are trying to make it sound like he leaked info to the press when he was FBI director.
