Grenell is beyond disgusting. He is a sick deranged sociopathic masochist. Probably why he negotiated being initially sent to Berlin where they have a huge sexy leather community and he could get his jolly’s self flagellating and getting fisted in restraints. But even that wasn’t enough pain inflicted after failing at his gay propaganda emission & the German boys wised up. He is sent back home w his rubber latex puppy tail strap on between his legs. To inflict pain on all of us unwilling participants. America’s safe word for November is BIDEN!!!!!

Haha! CJ! I don't know if I told you that I actually saw Grenell in Berlin. I happened to be there two summers ago, didn't even know if was Gay Pride weekend there (late July) and he had the gall to march in the parade. And he had a rainbow flag on the embassy and a lady liberty statue in a rainbow tutu. I took photos and wrote up a big story about how hypocritical the administration is to allow that. A year later Pompeo banned rainbow flags on the embassies -- the evangelicals clearly were furious. Grenell was put in his place.

Yes I think you mentioned it on the show. Its all so predictable..lol. What a coward. So many of “these types of gays” are total pigs in the sac but completely unhappy and unloveabe in REAL LIFE. Their sexuality can only be expressed as a fetish.. so pathetic.. ugh

As yet another reporter's book is published...in this case, Michael Schmidt's book, which seemingly does little more than confirm leaks reported at the time, I wonder for the 5,000th time why no one has written a book slamming the media itself for its mostly shoddy reporting over the past 5 years. They failed to vet Trump, Rosenstein, Barr, Mueller, Senators who went to Moscow on July 4th. They failed not only to call out Trump's lies but to clearly report the 'why' behind the lies. They failed to connect the dots in the public domain to newly emerging stories. They failed to contextualize Trump's actions in historical terms or to paint a broader narrative of the powers at play behind the scenes. Trump doesn't lie just to lie, there is a strategy = there has always been a strategy. Instead, the media has played the 'reaction game' for 5 years, and they will continue to do so no matter who wins in 2020. We need to understand why and how the 'Maggie Habermans, Chuck Todds, Petter Bakers, Michael Schmidts' of the journalism world have risen to the top, and why this is one of the strongest signs of a failed democracy. I hope someone writes that book...

There was never any support of this administration of LGBTQ rights. It’s the same farce as their support of African-Americans, women, our military, and all of the disenfranchised in this country.

I was a child in the 60s and I remember the events that shaped that era. As a little Black girl, I was aware but felt safe. My great-grandfather was still alive and he was a man I adored, a man born to

my great-great grandmother who was raped by a slave-owner when she was 14 years old. Yet never never did any member of my family speak poorly of non-Blacks. I was raised to be color-blind and to treat ALL people kindly.

Now I live in fear every single day. Fear for my family; fear for my friends who are LGBTQ or from non-White ethnicities. All due to the bigots who voted this lunatic and his enablers into office and continue to put them on a pedestal while they tear down every good thing about this country.

For the persons who are continuing to support these monsters, they are not merely conservatives; they are not Christians; they are not “perfectly fine people”: they are heinous monsters who are perfectly fine with flushing their own country, the United States of America down the toilet.

So true. When a person or a people self loath so much from a shameful past (slave owner & indigenous genocide & un ending greed to name a few) they will do even more horrible things to run from themselves & not deal w the truth. Time for white Americans to finally deal.

Hang in there tri state girl we are not all monsters but way way too many of us still are. United we stand and we will all win together.

Peace

Tri state white ally 😉

Oh yes -- it was all an act. But even the act is something they can't put on this year because evangelicals aren't excited enough to vote.

Pence’s looming shadow over the Liar-in-Chief, should be enough evidence that any so called “endorsement” of LBGTQ+ by this administration is pure fakery, Pence is so vehemently terrified of even the appearance of gay support, and I am sure his evangelist supporters have threatened to withdraw their support should even the hint of positive endorsement of the gay community. The Log Cabin Republicans need to hang their heads in shame, supporting tRump is endorsing his attack on transgenders , which is an attack on all of us ,as citizens of this country.

Log cabin. That always makes me laugh and cry at the same time. If the old historical whispers are true and Lincoln was a gay man w 2 big beards (Mary Todd & his own) lol. Then a closeted gay man was the Republicans last decent president!

Mike Pence has been a evil force on Trump. But in many ways evangelicals now support Trump even more than him -- see Trump as more real. Take note of my latest post, the call from Clark in Tennessee

Excellent points Michael, Grenell makes me cringe. I don't think we need another book, we need a Blue Tsunami on Election Day!
