    What I don't understand is a group of "Republicans" who hate Trump so much, that they attempt to damage him, helping Biden.

    Apparently their hatred for Trump allows them to try to help Biden, who is one vascular incident closer to becoming a drooling place holder, attain Presidency.

    That's hate.

    Where have we seen this before?

    Who do we know, whose hatred is so great that they would have gladly accepted Hillary, no matter what she had done?
    Robert Francis O'Rourke, Democrat, White guy, spent ~78 million to defeat, Ted Cruz, Republican immigrant Dark guy …
    and lost …
    But the Republicans are racist.

    The worst part is, these "Republicans" are supposed to lean right in regard to their beliefs. If they vote for Biden, they are voting for abortion, gun control, bigger government, etc.

    They are not only hurting Trump, they are hurting us.

    Bastards.

    I thought I understood it when Trump was just one of several GOP candidates.

    I didn't understand it when it was a binary choice between him and Hillary.

    I thought I got it when the GOP came up short on their promise to "Repeal & Replace," and when Chief Justice Roberts somehow smooched his own tokus to save ObamaCare as a tax and so on.

    I think I do get it.

    It isn’t a “So what” as much as it is a “We did far worse to them when they were in Afghanistan and it is childish and simplistic to think that they wouldn’t try something similar when we are there.”
    We did some nasty shit to German soldiers in 1943 as well but I would be pissed if they started taking shots at us now.

    Also, I find it odd to think that anyone would believe that the Taliban needed the incentive of bounties to kill Americans in Afghanistan.
    Especially after we reached an agreement with the Taliban to withdraw our forces.

    What I do know, with absolute certainty, is that if the reports were true, and if they had been passed along up to the White House, and if Trump had taken action against the Russians, any action at all, then you would be on here the next day bitching about whatever it is that Trump did. No sane person who has had any dealings with you over the past 3.5 years would bet against that.
    "Everything wrong with America is manifested in Trump. The hunger for power, the vile derision of people who don’t look like you, the cruelty, the privilege, the gleeful ignorance, and mendacious narcissism. Our revulsion at Trump is causing Americans to ask: How did we get to this place? And how do we get out? That will take time and hard work by well-intentioned people from every corner of American society."

    Don’t be glum, chum. Trump will actually do something stupid tomorrow and you can jump on that. He might not even wait until tomorrow.

    I don’t even know why you’re crying about this bullshit story in the first place - even if it was true, your side would have been cheering about those Americans getting killed. Payback for America’s Imperialist aggression over the centuries or some such woke bullshit, eh wot? So spare us your concern trolling, mmmkay?

    And you can roll your eyes all you want, Fucko. You have become a cartoon character.
    I will show you de way....

    I heard somewhere that since the February accord with the Taliban was signed just two Americans have been killed.

    Maybe the Afghans don't need the money.

    So what's Pelosi's excuse? She got the same briefing that she's waving around claiming that Trump didn't read.

    "We have to ignore the intelligence in order to find out what's in it?"
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    Or, they surely do like American money more than they like Russ rubles.
