    Yes, it's totally irrelevant that Trump has sexually assaulted multiple women. Technicalies in the law should have protected him, and his right to degrade his victims. He's a celebrity! He's entitled to grab pu**ys whenever he pleases!

    Yes, he's been accused of sexual assault, and all during his foray into politics. I think it is relevant that these sorts of accusations magically appear during such a time, even if it's over 30 years after the fact.

    I think a presidents past is relevant and they should be deeply scrutinized. Isn’t Hunter’s laptop relevant?

    26 women are lying, while Trump's denials are beyond reproach, since he is always so careful to tell the truth. :lol:

    I actually think there could be non conspiratorial, non-dishonest reasons that might happen. I understand the intuition that that seems fishy, but it might not be.

    Hoo-ee! $83.3M smackers! And that appears so far to have slightly modified his behaviour, proving that even rats can learn, at least for a while, if you hit them up-side the head with a brick. I wonder if it occurs to him that he could have saved a lot of money by just keeping quiet. Just the sort of sensitive and intelligent man we want running our country!

    If Trump was buying drugs and prostitutes and engaging in high-level corruption it would be deserving of scrutiny, because all that is criminal activity than none of us plebes could get away with. But I simply cannot care about Trump's pickup skills.

    I don’t know about drugs, but we know Trump has patronized prostitutes and engaged in high-level corruption. Of course you will disagree because you know his activities were all innocent, just like you somehow know that he didn’t sexually assault E. Jean Carrol.

    All I know is there is no evidence, just like what you claim to know about Trump. I just disagree with your method of believing things without the evidence to do so.

    As Carroll's attorney noted in her closing, less than 24 hours after the previous verdict, costing him a mere $5M, Trump again defamed Carroll. His disrespect for the verdict is just one manifestation of his general disrespect for the rule of law. At last, he received a tangible,well-deserved consequence for his behavior.

    He spoke. You don’t like what he says. The eternal desire to shut him up is the sine qua non of anti-Trumpism. His voice—or at least, the excerpts chosen for you by political operatives— is the source of your moral panic, and censoring him is the only cure for your anxiety.

    He defamed Carroll, and many other women who have accused him. And you're right, I don't like him doing that. What an odd thing to criticize.

    In the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, Trump has single-handedly eliminated what up until that moment had been, according to the Cult of MAGA, an urgent crisis at the southern border. But miraculously it is now no longer an urgent problem in the face of a more pressing and serious
    problem - thwarting bipartisan efforts until after the election or until Trump is given credit for his undisclosed "perfect (final) solution".

    Is Trump's education policy likely to make things better or worse?Athena

    It doesn't matter. If T***p gets back in the oval office, no education or any other "policy" will be implemented. The entire regime will be focused on purging his opponents.

    He also said recently that he hopes the economy will crash in the next twelve months so that he doesn't have to take the blame for it if it crashes later. As always, his only interest is self-interest.

    It would be unfortunate if no one sees the cultural impact of his education policy. I like the subject of education and culture better than the subject of Trump. It really is not all about him. It is very much about the people who support him. The racism is as serious today as it was the day slave owners justified enslaving people from Africa.

    Never mind, the replies I read have nothing to do with education or culture. It can go in the garbage. I am done with it.

    Only an AI could run against him.
