Who in your life do you hope will apologize for voting for Trump?

Most of us have at least one family member, friend, or co-worker in our lives that really disappointed us when we learned they voted for Trump.
Mine is a niece.
Not racist. Not a bigot. Just someone who always wants lower taxes and always votes Repub.
Anyway, we don’t discuss politics.
I learned from her Facebook page that she voted for Trump.
I’m hoping that the Mueller report will make her sorry she voted for him.

Would love to hear some stories from people on who they really want to hear an “I’m sorry” or “I was wrong” for voting for Trump from.
Also, tell me if you’ve already heard this from someone in your life.

What SPECIFICS will Mueller say about Trump.

Here’s my guesses:
Money Laundering
Obstruction of Justice
Violating Emoluments clause

I think that is it.
He will not use words such as treason, collusion, or conspiracy.

Will Mueller interview Pence?

He should, I think.

Trumper demands CNN be turned off at bar in Atlanta airport

Here’s the setup
Last night I’m in the Delta sky lounge bar in Atlanta
5 white males at bar
Three TVs on behind bartender.
One on CNN, one on ESPN, one on Fox News.

I ask bartender if the ESPN one could be turned to a different sports channe to watch a different basketball game.
The bartender asks everyone if that’s ok or if anyone is watching that game currently on.
Red headed white guy ariund 30 Says: “just take off CNN, I don’t watch fake news”.
I say, “that tv fine, I just want to see a different game on the middle tv”.
He says: “ just leave that game and put your game where CNN is so that I don’t have to see that fake news in front of me.”

There was so much I wanted to say.
One would be...”hey, asswipe, do you realize you are in Atlanta, CNN’s corporate headquarters “.
But mainly I wanted to say....”it’s not that you don’t want to watch CNN, it’s that you dont want anybody else to watch it either...is that what you’re saying....since we have three TVs in front of us”....”I hate Fox News, the real Fake News, but it’s not my business if you want to watch it”.

But, I didn’t say anything. Just had my drink and left.
How would you have handled it?

Understanding the White Female Trump voter.

Watching the women’s marches today has put me in a mood.
14 months later and I still can’t believe Trump got 53% of the white female vote.

These groups are how I see them (and I’m a male so I could be very wrong):

The one issue anti abortioners.
The one issue super rich low taxers.
The subservient Stepfords that vote as husband or pastor commands.
The low educated, poorly informed that believe all Dems are evil.
Fox News viewers.
Does that comprise 53% of the white female population?

Why is Gayle King always the go to person on all things Oprah?

Both have always denied rumors that they are gay lovers.
I accept that.
But, I still find it odd that it’s never a relative or Steadman that steps out to defend or comment on anything about her.
It’s always her best friend Gayle.
