Let's give Kaitlin Collins the benefit of the doubt

Let's say that she intends to and will ask tfg tough questions. What will happen then in a building packed with rightwingers? She not only will be booed, she will be shouted down. And the orange freak will stand there basking in it.

CNN spin on their town hall this morning

Several members of Jon King's insufferable "panel" admitted that TFG is using this opportunity to repair his image with voters outside the rightwing bubble. So they are totally aware of this, and okay with it. At no point did any of them suggest that he would be challenged. And now we know that the audience will be packed with rightwingers who would be the last people on earth to challenge him. No Dems allowed.

The only opportunity for any kind of "challenge" will have to come from Kaitlin Collins. I just don't see her asking enough tough questions on her own with any kind of follow-up to compete with all the fawning BS that is going to come from the audience. which will ask the bulk of the questions.

I won't be watching, but I'm sure some brave DUers will be. I'll read about it here or on some trusted reporters twitter pages. I have absolutely no faith in CNN to cut through his crap. The format alone is stacked against truth,

So law enforcement in TX doesn't even have the decency to

have a press conference after their citizens are slaughtered? They're not going to dignify the victims by announcing their names? Am I alone in thinking this is a new low?

Hoping CNN will ask TFG tough questions during his free campaign ad

er, I mean town hall? Get that silly notion right out of your head. This town hall is for republican primary voters and the audience will be asking the questions. CNN in its promos for this free campaign commercial, I mean town hall, is laying it all out there. The members of the audience (rightwingers) will be asking the questions. Don't expect any pushback, let alone tough questions. The more we find out about this &^%% show, the worse it sounds.

I'll pass, CNN

Safe space for Glen Younkin or whatever his name is on Erin' show. They've been pushing it all day. WILL HE RUN FOR PRESIDENT??!!! OMG, the drama and suspense. I guess the infomercial (townhall) Tapper did with him a few months ago wasn't enough. America is screaming for more GY!!

Instead I'll be watching Joy Reid rip apart Tuckims.

So today MTG accused Swalwell of sleeping with

a spy during a hearing. No evidence of course. But also Nancy Mace released a video where she accused Biden of being involved in a prostitution ring. And she's supposedly "reasonable." "Journalists" like Andrea Mitchell and Katy Tur have her on so she can rehabilitate herself by making unchallenged moderate noises.

I know this is a dumb question, but how do they get away with it, and isn't it time we started fighting back?

Why is there so little info being released about the two latest shootings?

Not even whether the shooter is at large (the 16th birthday party one) or when there will be a news conference? I hope these shootings are not another sign of how numb we've become or maybe they're not being pursued as aggressively because they involve people of color?

You know how it's hard to look away from a car wreck?

I accidentally flipped to CNN's State of the Union when Jake "Safe Harbor for Republicans" Tapper was interviewing Brian Kemp. In his unseemly and gringy effort to attract more R's to his show, (because god knows that's what the viewers want, right?), he has been lobbing softballs to them, going so far as to wipe the trademark sneer from his face, and even eliminating his constant interrupting.

So as he politely asked Kemp several questions and waited while Kemp ran out the clock, I knew he would not challenge him in any way. What I didn't expect was when Kemp came to the end of his word salad on gun control, Tapper helpfully finished the argument for him. saying that most murders are not committed by rifles but handguns. He did not challenge one thing Kemp said. Not one.

I only continued to watch to see if he would push back even a little. Now I know the answer.

In case you were worried about Bill Barr

don't be. He currently on CNN holding forth about the 21 year old alleged leaker. He will have no trouble sanitizing his reputation if CNN has anything to do with it. They are literally rehabilitating him no questions asked.

Does anyone know when the vote in TN will be?

The headline on MSNBC keeps saying that the vote is "soon." But they've been saying that for hours. Also, I'd like to hear the protesters and the debate instead of some of the lame commentary
