She lost! Let the 'Great Reveal' continue! Nothing is going to be put right until HRC is indicted, tried and placed in prison.

Coulter is right we can thank Trump's win for women organizing against sexual abuse and lowering the tolerance level. He won despite the 'Access Hollywood' video in which he bragged about grabbing pudenda, credible accusations of sexual predation from a few dozen women, his weird attacks on Megyn Kelly, Katy Tur and other female reporters, and all the other things that led to the #MeToo and #Resist movements. Since then several lawsuits by women abused by Trump have been made public, most famously that by a porn actress who was tricked into signing a legally faulty NDA. The women of America have heard the President loud and clear.

We now have a record number of women running for office. Some Democrats have spoken up against Bill Clinton lately, most notably Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Getting the Clintons out of our politics completely would be a huge step forward. It's doubtful Republicans will let that happen for at least a decade, though.

In "access Hollywood" Trump bragged about women ALLOWING famous people to grab them. Not employees or other people under authority but women in general. Despite the language there is a lot of truth in that- how many threw their knickers at Tom Jones for example, have you never heard of a "groupie". I'll bet that tape was stored up for use against Bush.
The one night stand with Stormy Daniels was by her account entirely consensual. The only debate now is whether or not she needs to repay the $130,000 she got for non disclosure- I'm sure she can now afford it.
I note that there are a significant number of women employed in the administration, so you don't have to wait for elections, they're in office now.

Yeah, the Dems keep on with that meme, of President, then candidate, Trump, "bragging about groping women." I have listened to the actual tape, and he said no such thing, but merely commented on the behavior of some women toward rich entertainment executives. But, of course, that's how the Dems roll, keep repeating the lie or distortion, long after all the evidence is out, showing that this is, indeed, a lie. Why let if go? The lapdog media will continue to puff the false story, so that millions who never read past headlines will think that they have been informed of the truth.

The adult daughter of a couple of fellow parishioners was living with her parents until she found out that they had voted for President Trump. She actually moved out of their house. (and not before time) They told me that she had been date-raped in high school, which they only found out later, but she still blamed them for failure to protect her, from a peril of which they were unaware. Again, she never listened to the actual tape, nor tried to inform herself of the actual facts. She's pretted f****d up anyway, in other ways, so this is more or less to be expected from her. With all that said, she is, after all, one of millions of duped Dem voters.

There seems to be some presumption on Trump's part. Here's the transcript:

"Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Bush: Whatever you want.

Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything."

The issue is that Trump seems to assume consent, and that view is backed up by the other women suing him or telling their stories. There are certainly women who throw themselves at men, even younger versions of myself, and there isn't even one building with my name on it in gold paint.

By her own account Stormy Daniels consented to sex. Again, that's not the issue. The issue is the timing of Michael Cohen's NDA, one month before the November 2016 election. Because of that and the way the payment was handled, it probably violated campaign finance laws.

How's about a round #2?

Aand especially for you Bob:

"Out on the road for forty days
Last night in Little Rock put me in a haze
Sweet, sweet Connie, doin' her act
She had the whole show and that's a natural fact
Up all night with Freddie King
I got to tell you, poker's his thing
Booze and ladies, keep me right
As long as we can make it to the show tonight

Four young chiquitas in Omaha
Waitin' for the band to return from the show
Feelin' good, feelin' right, it's Saturday night
The hotel detective, he was outta sight
Now these fine ladies, they had a plan
They was out to meet the boys in the band
They said, come on dudes, let's get it on
And we proceeded to tear that hotel down."

(You'll recall Bob, Lloyd Bentsen admonishing Dan Quayle that,"I knew John Kennedy"? Well guess what Bob, I knew Connie, such a sweet gal. I wasn't in attendance for her funeral however a couple of my acquaintances were and they relayed the most humorous occurrence during the service was when the Right Reverend, describing her best attributes said, "Our Connie was the most accommodating young lady I ever had the pleasure to meet.")

"Because of that and the way the payment was handled, it probably violated campaign finance laws." !!! You'll do us the kindness Bob of, providing us a link to the specific statute?

You'll remember Bob, me providing you a link for when you didn't know what I was talking about where Susan Rice was concerned?

JK,

Since I'm not a lawyer and no charge has been filed publicly and I only know what I read in the papers, I wrote probably. This has links to all the applicable laws if you'd like to take a shot:

In any case we'll probably know more before much longer.

You're full of surprises. I'd never have taken you for a Grand Funk Railroad kinda guy. Did you know Frank Zappa produced the album that song's on? If you're a fan of his too I'm even more surprised.

"Did you know Frank Zappa produced the album that song's on?"

How's this for obscure Bob?

"Writing about music is like dancing about architecture."

That's "an especial" for yourself.
