    They really thought that the First Republic of Michelle Obama wouldn’t notice when she was being stolen from………..REALLY?


    They really didn’t think that FLOTUS had Stans?

    PSYCHO: So Trump left Cleveland and didn’t tell anybody, standing up a bunch of donors he was supposed to meet.

      Media talking about the disorganisation of the Trump campaign – how they let down Melania – it all starts at the top & this is just another example of the CEO – takes all the credit and disappearing when there is work to be done – biggest fraud ever – not even a higher being will save the USA if this man is in the White House

    Congrats on first, Rikyrah! The once grand old party of Lincoln died today. We must put a stake through its heart in November to take back Congress as well as keep a Democrat in the White House!

    gm from my world TOD – well I awoke to Trump being nominated and Alaska (of all states) arguing from the floor about the vote. I then read that Hillary, FLOTUS and a sparkling pony?? were responsible for Melania stealing a speech. This is your party of responsibility who has nominated a megalomaniac white supremacist as their candidate.

    Talking to a chair seems a quite normal activity at this point in time.

    So I’m watching this sh.. sh.. & Trump’s son calls out congratulations – to me that signifies his family are his fans but not many others. Rachel thinks it was so sweet and lovely – Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh – This is not young children – who look and behave so much better than the Trump lot

    And then Tweety is saying Trump “gobbles up” what everyone says – am I living on the same planet as this media – Trump listens to no one except Trump.

      Glad they found a factory for him to visit – we have almost ZERO manufacturing in Australia – started disappearing in the 1970s. All we do is dig it up and ship it out for someone else to manufacture. Too sad.

    Hottest June ever recorded worldwide – NOAA.

    Last month was the hottest June ever recorded worldwide, and the 14th straight month that global heat records were broken, scientists say.

    The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says global sea temperatures were fractionally higher than for June last year while land temperatures tied.

    Its global temperature records date back 137 years, to 1880.

    Most scientists attribute the increases to greenhouse gas emissions.

    They also say climate change is at least partially to blame for a number of environmental disasters around the world.

        yea – headline from cnn money today

        It’s a scary world…except for defense companies – Defense contractors are cashing in on today’s scary world.

        Lockheed Martin (LMT), the global leader in making weapons, reported a jump in profits on Tuesday and ramped up its outlook for the rest of the year amid strong defense spending by major governments.

        Trump is good for guns

      And there is no doubt that during the dem convention they will interview all the RWNJs and allow them to attack Hillary over and over. They NEVER stop. During the schmozzel today on voting – they said “this is more like what happens at a dem convention”

      So the rule still stands – GOP is organised and honest – dems are disorganised and emails!

      • July 19, 2016 at 9:37 pm

          And for the few minutes when they talked about plagiarism – the GOP & all its friends were screaming “liberal media”. When Rachel was praising the Trump sons for their support of their father I near threw up. Someone HAS to be talking into her ear.

    Speaking of people who should be arrested – Chris Christie is the first speaker to mention Donald Trump up front – but then he started the hits on Hillary – he thinks he is running free – time will tell.

    I do wonder why Hillary wanted to do this. She is attacked from within & without by lies and damn lies. Amazing perseverance

      Rolling across the screen – Christie is presenting the facts on Clinton – Never do they suggest that the GOP has LIES not facts.

      More like how a certain German dictator got power. Use democracy to get elected & then delete anything that might remove you from power. Trump believes the position of President is that of a medieval Monarch. He makes the rules, keeps the taxes and orders the serfs to do his bidding.

      • July 19, 2016 at 10:00 pm

        I sure do hope that if trunp gets in there that democrats filibuster everything even his appointees.
        Gum up the works like he did to us.
        Bc if this is allowed to happen… It’s not democracy anymore it’s a theocracy which is what founding fathers protected us from.

        For nobility sake🤔

    Karma. And we get to see this while PBO is still in office. Ailes out (O’Riley hopefully retires..tone changes at Fox News), GOP is totally fractured by Trump. Supreme Ct leans towards centre left. I hope Hillary with a Dem majority in House and Senate over next 1 or 2 terms can continue & strengthen what PBO started while making changes such as gun control….definitely more brighter days ahead? 🙂

      Not sure we can get the House back till 2020 census year. The gerrymandering definitely messes things up since the system is rigged favoring the Republicans due to that. NPR interviewed an author about his new book on the effects of gerrymandering today. It was a good explanation.

    GE TODville.

    Appalled as I am at what the GOP has done to itself, cannot bear to watch RNC or read many tweets from MSM. You may laugh, but this is the first convention since 1968 that I haven’t watched. Yvonne Braithwaite (later added Burke to her name) mesmerized me as an adolescent still in shock after MLK Jr and RFK’s assassinations. She was the very definition of poise and grace while chaos and violence were erupting outside the Chicago convention.

    And I was morbidly fascinated by the likes of William F Buckley (went to hear him at San Diego State in high school with a friend) just to hear his ludicrous assertions.

    But RNC, GOP and MSM this year are a mockery of US democracy. Refuse to subject myself to #TrumpFamilyRealityTV this week.

    However, thought this was funny, since what immediately leaps to mind as a caption has to do with Trump’s tiny hands, LOL.

    • July 19, 2016 at 10:39 pm

      Yvonne Brathwaite Burke was another of my role models. The CBC was fierce back in those days Shirley Chisholm, George Collins (his wife Cardiss, was elected to his seat after he died), Parren Mitchell from B’more, Augustus Hawkins, Ron Dellums (fine for days… had a crush), and so many others. CBC were bad asses back in the day…

        GE Alycee,

        Not as familiar with others in the CBC as I was of Yvonne, but as a big fan of multi-cultural Star Trek, had NO IDEA that 2016 would unfold the way it is now.

        Growing up in the utmost corner of the country was only aware of what I read and saw on TV/movies, but couldn’t relate as I can now with TOD and Twitter. Though I do recall traveling through Arizona with my parents on vacation and seeing “No Indians allowed” on restroom doors — being Japanese-American and wearing my hair in pigtails didn’t make me feel welcome there.

        Still remember hearing Ron Dellums on the radio, railing against some allegation or another (think it was in the early 1980s), and he said “Who are these alligators?” Cracked me up at the time, had no idea who he was or what he looked like, but stuck with me all these years. Go figure.

    just amazing to watch these p.b.s. commentators, even gwen ifill, just watch this insane diatribing and then they talk as if they just saw interesting and thoughtful speechmaking. no mention of all the historic crazy that’s unleashed before their eyes…just “so and so softened the edges…” and “enthusiastic support for his father…” and blah blah blah. i’ve kept holding out hope for ifill but about ready to write her off for good. she’s decided to become part of this republican propaganda mill. sad!

    The tweet about the 4 stages has me chuckling: actually I see it as 5 stages: the half dood standing in the back with his hands in his pockets looks as if he is about to bolt for the nearest exit. Pathetic, all of it, pathetic, and gross.

        And Ben Carson is a true representative of a GOP Christian – Rachel & Co talking about how devout he is. The man they worship wouldn’t have given these people a second look.

    NerdyWonka, you continue to bring the truth, the funny, the wry, the comprehensive, the poignant, the essential — you amaze me more every day. Endless flowing gratitude to you for all of this. Greetings and love to the lovely and marvelous Chipsticks. Thinking of your with love and gratitude every day.

    I was over on Facebook reading the news blurbs. I am seeing that two speech writers say after they gave the speech in final form to Melania it was changed from what they wrote. There was something about Ivanka going over it too. Not sure if that was speculation or not though.
