Given that:

1) Hillary Clinton is not working out of the Oval Office, and

2) Hillary Clinton is politically dead, dead, dead.

Why are Conservatives, the alt-right, Branch Trumpidians and Trump apologists so afraid of her?


I don't think they themselves are afraid. They don't know how to govern; they only know how to criticize other people's governance. Unfortunately for them, they are in charge of all branches of government right now. So to avoid criticizing themselves for the lousy job they're doing of it, they contrast what they're doing as better than Hillary would have done. Pure red-meat-to-the-base deflection. They can't possibly know what she would have done in almost any case.

I wouldn't say righties are afraid of Hillary.

Actually, she's probably the only Dem they aren't afraid of, cause Donald already beat her.

That's why they're so obsessed with her running again in 2020. They're scared of basically everyone else.

Ronan Farrow strikes again.

Donald Trump, a Playboy Model, and a System for Concealing Infidelity

Donald had an affair with a Playboy model shortly after Melania gave birth to Barron. Before the election, Donald's friends at the National Enquirer bought the exclusive rights to her story and killed it.

Trump heads to Florida
Will he personally meet with the families?
If he does, this may not go well
Emotions are very very raw
Families in the past that were victims of mass shootings viewed Obama as an ally
With Trump a huge NRA supporter, meeting the families personally like Obama may not go well

Obama had empathy and compassion for others.

Donald only cares about Donald.

I heard that he did not want to go to Parkland but his aides talked him into it

Trump is not having a good day
Not only does he have to console grieving families
His boss Putin is now furious that 13 Russians got indicted

I'm trying to wrap my head around this.
A year and a half and $10mil dollars
spent, and we get Boris and Natasha
indicted for meddling in the election
from their parents basements in Moscow?
Seriously?

“Rosenstein said there is no allegation in the indictment that any American was a knowing participant in the scheme, nor is there any allegation that the scheme affected the outcome of the election. Bye-bye investigation. Mueller has just confirmed that there wasn’t any Trump/Russia collusion."

I heard 2 former special prosecutors today
who said you always come out with the
heaviest hitting indictments first, to show
you have force and you mean business.
So Mueller shot his wad today with a Friday
afternoon documant dump, after spending
$10mil on a nothing burger. Unbelievable.

This is who he indicted today:

If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

You start with the small to middle fish, the ones you have something on, then scare them into giving you one up the pyramid from them. You do that in stages, with the goal of moving up each time, until you get to the source.

You also, in a climate such as ours now, start by establishing the most basic facts that have been alleged for months. There has been so much denial, delfection, and lying, that nothing can be stipulated.

So you get the actors, then you chase the money trail upwards. And you make damned sure every inch is documented, testified and confessed to, independently verified.
