I'm thinking it's more Pokemon Go.

Are you still living on Sesame Street, or did you move to Mr. Rogers neighborhood?

I've visited both in the past in my more formative years. They were excellent for their time.

It's unfortunate that you haven't had the same opportunity.

Spacemonkey just caught feelings when Kane suggested he hasn't watched Sesame Street.

This is PEAK idiocy.

And then this happened:



Obviously, its time to try for a deflection against the mess he's made out of Niger, shitting on a gold star widow, Sessions' grilling, etc.

We have a sitting POTUS tossing out bonkers conspiracy theories. And no, the dossier, such as it is...has not been discredited, and is certainly not fake.

well tbf The Dossier is at the same level of proven and corroborated as a conspiracy between the FBI, Russia, and the Democratic party to collude to create it. so you could say that conspiracy, such as it is...has not been discredited, and is certainly not fake.

Yeah, you said it. Difference between something unprovable that trump finds inconvenient...and something that's actually been discredited. He thinks if he just loudly announces it as such, it will magically become so. Which is certainly true among his base.

If you're looking for corroboration on it, I doubt you'll get any. But that does not equate to it being "discredited" or "fake".

Which is beside the point, because of course the issue here is that a sitting potus is literally declaring the whole thing a conspiracy between the fbi, a political party, and...a foreign power? It's batshit, Galt.
