Seems like a fun time to play the "if Obama did this" game

Trumpkin Kurt Schlichter:

Quote:
Even if some sort of crime had been committed, Schlichter suggested, Trump and Cohen would have to be “terrible crooks” to keep the evidence. “But if these guys are this crime family why do you think they’d keep something incriminating around? That’s just silly. More than that, I don’t think there’s anything incriminating. I think there’s stuff that might be embarrassing.”
loooooooooooooooolllllllllllll

Unsurprisingly a search of fox news site does not turn up a single reference of today's Cohen revelation about Hannity. Not one.

Did I imagine a video of Cohen walking around and sitting down with those people and holding his phone and ****? I don't ask a lot from this forum but if you could link it I would appreciate it.

TIA

It's difficult for me to rank the first four seasons. I am heartened by the s2 love in the room though

Not that fox had any pretense of journalism before today but now that we know they ignored, and continue to ignore, this galactic conflict of interest fox and everyone working there should never again use the word journalism.

This. Although season 1 is deserves better than Victor's list. Also nothing really compares to first viewing of S4, even if it falls a little behind on the rewatch.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: No smocking guns.

oh man, a post from one of my super-deplorable local city groups I monitor on FB (have posted about it before):

Quote:
Fact: the murder rate for illegal immigrants is 10 times higher than those of American citizens. Fact: if a woman dresses a certain way, then she's asking for it and she'll get whatever is coming to her. I'm not afraid to say it, I'm racist. But that's okay because I admit that I'm racist. I think voter registration should be mandatory in all fifty states. If you trespass on my property then I should legally be allowed to shoot you, and nothing you or anyone does can convince me otherwise. Library fines are so small that you can practically ignore them every time. So sue me! I fundamentally believe that abortion should be legal when the life of the mother is threatened, but never in cases of rape and incest. And you know what? Tomatoes are vegetables. I challenge anyone to fight me on this issue. I am positive that tomatoes are vegetables because they are not sweet and you cannot eat them like apples. They might be red like apples but that does not automatically make them a fruit. Science backs me up on that one hundred percent. Eminem is the best rapper of all time. To be honest, everybody needs to stop being so sensitive. I only piss in handicapped parking spots and I believe lesbians mothers cause autism, not vaccines. Also, the holocaust never happened, but I wish that it had because overpopulation is going to kill us all in the long run. I enjoy cheez-wiz. Well, that's the way I am. Everybody is entitled to their opinions. Goodbye.
they're really becoming unwound. and no that post isn't sarcastic or trying to be ironic, the guy's body of work is kind of incredible.

Unfortunately, unless Hannity is lying (which is not unlikely), Cohen didn't do an NDA for him to keep someone silent. Then again, Hannity may have gotten Russia/Muller taking points or information from Cohen, which would not be privileged, but Hannity probably gets that straight from Trump and Nunes.
Oh I know, but I thought Hannity was disclaiming any of those types of communications. So by denying he was waiving any claim to privilege.

I do agree that anyone who says tomato is a fruit in any gotcha sort of way should be aborted.

2 is help tremendously by the rewatch, because then you have an appreciation for where everything fits in.

When watching it the first time, there is just too much "WTF is the point of this" going through the viewers head.

Not sure how much the writers had planned out in advance, but even if they didn't, they did a good job of making 2 better with what they did in the subsequent seasons.

Yep.

By the way, one of my favorite subtle moments in the show is in season 5 when one of the homeless guys McNulty interacts with is Johnny Fifty.

That’s gotta be a joke it’s too self aware. People with those beliefs are never self aware (esp the tomato one) CMV

I mean, Hannity has been slurping Trump & Co for a couple years now nightly and smearing his enemies and he's had not one but two of Trump's attorneys representing him ffs. In any other time and place he'd be finished. Instead this will probably improve his ratings. waaf

This isnít accurate. Either Cohen had an AC relationship with Hannity (in which case he was Hannitys lawyer), or he didnít. If you talk to a random lawyer who isnít your lawyer about legal stuff, that conversation isnít privileged.

I guess it depends on the definition of an attorney-client relationship?
