    To be fair, every time a politician does something like this it is generally for show, regardless of what they say or how it is framed. You don't get very many candid videos of politicians doing this kind of stuff and just, like, being caught doing it rather than it being staged.

    Absolutely. It's for show whether the boxes are full or empty.

    Well, if he wins in November, this issue would have to be reconciled. Either he's playing 300 dimensional chess or the DNC lost a chess match against someone playing 'heads or tails.' I think it's more of the latter, myself.

    I actually read this Federalist article to see what the argument was. It all lands on one central premise:

    upload_2020-5-21_12-12-9.png

    Actually, no.

    So, maybe this is news, but a telephone call has (at minimum) two people on the call. So if you're spying on a non-US citizen - say Kislyak - and Kislyak has a phone call then it means you're also listening to the second person too. It's an absurdity to argue that it's somehow improper to keep listening to the call because Michael Flynn is on the other end of the phone. That's precisely the kind of information you're spying on Kislyak to find out.

    The logical leaps conservative media makes to protect their guys are sometimes surreal.

    It's a weird situation for sure. Trump shouldn't be a difficult person to run against, he's an incredibly flawed person both morally and intellectually. On the other hand he's tapped into something that resonates with millions of people, and no amount of reasoning seems to put a dent in it. This isn't to say that the democrats have done a good job, by and large I think their messaging has been pretty poor, and their ideas too small.

    However, I'm not entirely convinced that matters all the much in beating him. Regardless of credentials or experience or reputation as soon as someone finds themselves in opposition to Trump, his millions of followers are fed conspiracy theories and lies to discredit them. It's just a **** show all around.

    I think you mean lost a popularity contest. Who has more loyal and more partisan voters? The Dems or Republicans? That's what decides who is president way more than which is the better candidate or who had the better debates or campaign etc.

    The strategy is to win the presidency.

    I find it genuinely odd how Trump doesn't want to look unmasculine by wearing a mask but bakes himself in Cheeto dust and hair dye on the daily. Just another reason why a horde of people will say that masks are Bill Gates/George Soros secret masterplan to implant mind control chips in us being powered by underground radioactive gay frogs from China.

    It's funny how MSNBC or CNN catch a ton of flack for being too friendly to (some) democrats, but Fox News being an arm of the republican party is just taken for granted. Or, in this case, castigated for not doing enough for them.

    One of the wildest things about Trump is how he makes no effort at objectivity, it's pure distilled partisanship all the way down with him, and his followers lap it up.

    The whole house of cards falls apart the minute you leave the conservative media ecosystem.

    Yeah, I posted that last night, the Washington Post scoop. I was wondering why no one picked up on it lol. Hey guys, he wasn’t masked. The whole thing is so absurd. It’s hard to believe it will fool anyone other than Trump’s supporters. It’s so silly, it will be interesting to see how far they can actually run with this, since it seems to be set up as a campaign strategy.

    I don't disagree
    You can win the presidency with a poor strategy and with a worse strategy than your opponent if the numbers are in your favor for non strategic reasons.

    I love the irony of you posting someone else's words to articulate that for you.
