Two lnsults...

one implies a person is a sub-par human and the other implies a person is sub-human. That's why one can kiss my ass and the other I support (Samantha Bee). And remember that in a world seeking gender equality the term used is exactly like calling a male a dick or a prick. When has anyone been called on to apologize for that?

On the NFL

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’” the president said

Is he violating his oath?

Code of Conduct for Members of the United States Armed Forces


Article 3:If I am captured I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

The talking heads are morons-John McCain is a hero, but if he agreed to be returned home after capture he would have been court martialed for conduct unbecoming. It is plenty enough that he flew aircraft in combat but saying yes to early release is a no-no even for the lowliest private and would have ruined the life of the son of a navy admiral...

Without commenting on guilt or innocence

In less than 6 hours a good democrat was accused, called on by multiple people to resign, resigned his office AND I have seen his resignation quoted as proof he was probably guilty. Can anybody else see a problem with this?
