The 2016 Democratic National Convention is about to formally gaveled into order. But not by you-know-who. Watch below.

  • TK

    Here we go

    • justme

      Is that the tRumps???

      • bkmn

        Are they orange?

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        The one on the far left appears to be Trump, when he had more hair. That’s Ivanka with the binoculars and a young Martin Shkreli with the camcorder. The idiot appears to be Manafort.

      • kaydenpat

        Classier than the Trumps.

      • LackofFaithify

        Is that the trumps?! Hmmm. Let me answer that question by posing another: what did the five fingers say to the face?

  • Piercedchrlz

    Gird your loins and pull up your spanks, it’s gonna be a heck of a ride!

  • Gustav2

    They think the Super Delegates will change their minds?

    Delusional

    • Lazycrockett

      Petulant Children.

    • thom

      but they REALLY wanted him to win.

  • thom

    protesters lined up and shouting at delegates as they enter

    • another_steve

      Politeness died with Mr. Rogers.

      • OdieDenCO

        Mr Rogers didn’t die! he just moved to a better neighborhood πŸ™‚

        • another_steve

          Thanks, hon. Makes me feel better. πŸ˜‰

  • TK

    Jesus, this CNN dude is just trying his hardest to stir shit up.

    • Clive Johnson

      CNN is often loathsome.

    • MattM

      CNN is reporting that the wormhole that swallowed Malaysia flight 370 may show up. Don Lemon is there with a model to explain.

  • TK

    The guests are trying to be so positive but he just keeps trying to drag them into the mess.

  • billbear1961

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/26/opinion/trump-and-the-end-of-truth.html?src=me

    In this editorial, the author laments the death of truth.

    Well, who the HELL is MORE to BLAME for THAT than the goddamned “news” MEDIA?!

    CHRIST, they make me SICK!!

    I could scream or VOMIT I’m so fucking PISSED OFF!!

    • BobSF_94117

      How is the NYT responsible for irresponsible “journalism” from other outlets?

      • billbear1961

        Even THEY aren’t always responsible!

        Nowhere in his editorial does he place any of the blame where it belongs, on news media where many relentlessly play the FALSE equivalencies game.

        Today, in their article that deals with the possible link between the Russians and Trump, they say NOT ONE WORD about his FINANCIAL connections with the Russian government.

    • Ray Butlers

      You are painting with too broad a brush. The New York Times is not to blame here. Read the article.

      • billbear1961

        I did read the article–I see a man lamenting the death of truth, and he says not ONE WORD about HIS profession being LARGELY responsible for that!!

  • TK

    Why a CNN feed, Joe? MSNBC, please. *grabs the clicker*

    • another_steve

      Joe likes the busty blonds, maybe?

    • sherman

      I just tried MSNBC. They were ignoring Elijah Cummings’ speech and giving us talking heads. I switched to C-Span.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Go Hillary!

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      And welcome to Philly – to all our democratic visitors!

      • billbear1961

        XO

    • billbear1961

      Oh, my brave little dino darling!

      The bear is near DESPAIR!!

      How can we win where FACTS and the TRUTH are treated with unrelenting DISDAIN by politicians who have degenerated into FASCISTS virtually unchallenged by “journalists” who REFUSE to do their JOBS, where arguments based on LIES and irrational, delusional FANTASIES are shown the same respect as those based on facts and respect for reason and DECENCY, where positions that demonstrate wild and bigoted EXTREMISM are considered legitimate and worthy of debate in a modern FREE society?!

      • Ray Butlers

        Now is not the time to lose your mind. Wait until Christmas like a normal person.

  • Gustav2

    ONE EMAIL!

  • james_from_cambridge
  • joe ho

    This is offensive to my atheism.

    Lock her up!

  • I think it’s pretty clear already that neither the DNC or the RNC are up for the job so can we start again, please?

    • Bruno

      Yeah sure. That sounds realistic.

      • Sorry I mean Go Hillary? Better?

        • Bruno

          How about Go Away?

        • RainbowPhoenix

          As long as it keeps Trump out of office. Tip: staying home or voting third party will not keep Trump out of office.

          • Trump needs to stay out of office but Hillary and the DNC need to be held accountable for their behavior.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            And your method of doing that is to give Trump the presidency?

          • I’m not giving Trump anything? What are you talking about? Critisizing Hillary and the DNC does not mean I want Trump to win. They are not mutually exclusive.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Not voting for Clinton is helping Trump win. It’s the nature of the system.

          • Ray Butlers

            Not if they win. Claire Underwood does not go quietly.

    • Hue-Man
  • PickyPecker

    Why do the parties insist on using this old dreg of a civil war song to perform at these things?

  • AW

    They sound beautiful… but too much Xtian. SECULAR PLEASE.

    • joe ho

      If this religious shit helps get her elected I’ll set my atheism aside for the moment.

      I’m pragmatic, not a Bernie-or-bust spoiled child.

  • Sam_Handwich

    they need to mic the whole group

  • royinhell

    His “truth” has no place here, marching on or not.

  • RainbowPhoenix
  • bryan

    Welcome to church. Bienvenidos a todos.

    • avidreader

      That’s an absolutely delicious burn.

  • another_steve

    Gag me with a spoon.

    (I don’t know what that means, but I like to say it.)

    • PickyPecker

      I suppose it all depends on how strong your gag reflex is, Steve. πŸ˜‰

  • thom

    Instead of “AKP emails”, Wikileaks dumped private info of ALMOST EVERY WOMAN in Turkey Yes. https://t.co/oteB3xwPLX https://t.co/D6cgHaoFd3

    Wikileaks dumped addresses of millions of women in Turkey. Hundreds murdered each year by exes, stalkers, etc. Now, they’ve an address book.

    • bkmn

      This needs to come back and bite WikiLeaks in the ass. There is no reason for doing this.

    • Lazycrockett

      Disgusting and disturbing.

      • Ninja0980

        It is but what can you expect from a rapist?

    • kaydenpat

      Wikileaks needs to be put in check. Their document dumps place people’s lives at risk.

    • I once had respect for Wikileaks and their mission. They’ve now adopted the vile tactics of alt-right cyberterrorists, as far as I’m concerned, and they are going to get people killed through shit like this.

  • Lazycrockett

    MSNBC is already having audio trouble.

    • bkmn

      They are just trying to keep up with CNN that seems to be winning the race to be the worst network.

      • Bruno

        Fox?

        • bkmn

          I don’t consider the propaganda network to be a real network.

          • Bruno

            Miss Piggy thinks it’s a network, just not a news network.

  • Lazycrockett

    Lady missed that last note. Lawdy

  • bryan

    That was truly dreadful. The only way is up…

  • Bruno

    Al Gore Endorses Hillary Clinton. We’re saved!

  • AW

    She’s beautiful!

    • Jay George

      I was thinking that too.

  • TK

    The teleprompter should NEVER be directly in front of the speaker. Right and left, people. Right and left!

  • Lazycrockett

    Where’s Fudge?

  • PickyPecker

    OK….it’s open. Let the games begin!

    • billbear1961

      Upbeat music, although it does not match my dark mood . . .

      • PickyPecker

        I’m hoping for all our sakes, dear bear, that we’ll be uplifted this week. It’s time for the USA to hear about the future in a positive light!! Remember too…..Nurse Pecker’s always got your back. XO

        • billbear1961

          I know, sweetie!

          XO

          • TrollopeReader

        It will get better. I hope.

  • TK

    “After the rocky start…”

    It just started, you tool.

  • Lazycrockett

    Oh shut up Andrea.

  • joe ho

    Andrea’s disappointed there were no boos to breathlessly report on.

    • halfwaythere

      And I’m so thankful there weren’t.

    • Gustav2

      When will she retire? She’s 69.

  • Sam_Handwich

    the youtube chat is like an AOL chat room in 1995, but sadly no pornbots

    • AW

      It’s truly awful… Best to hide that cesspool.

  • halfwaythere

    Boyz 2 Men? Hahahahahahaaaaaa!!!!

  • PickyPecker

    Yes, can we please go back outside? fucking-A! This did NOT happen during the RNC convention!

    • Jay George

      They f*ck us every time.

  • Ray Taylor
    • TK

      Wow, that’s a nice feed. Very clear

    • PickyPecker

      Thanks! much nicer.

  • TK

    Why is it important to show delegates at the RNC/DNC dancing?

  • PickyPecker

    Who let all those black people in? oh, wait……wrong week on my calendar. /s

    • Gustav2

      OMG! I just found out my congressperson is a Black woman!

      Joyce Beatty speaking today…still I think.

      • Ray Butlers

        My Senators are a male Jew and a female Jew. My Congressman is a Muslim African American man. I couldn’t be prouder.

        [This is the part when my cousin accusing me of being a racist against white….lol]

  • Lazycrockett

    As with the RNC directv is showing the DNC convention live on channel 347

  • ByronK

    Wow, the delegates actually look like America and not a bag of cotton balls.

  • bryan

    Jake Tapper….what a whiner.

    • AW

      He’s a looker though.

    • Scott Fitler

      “Boyz2men providing a rare note of harmony here at the DNC…” The convention just started… CNN stirring the sh.t as usual.

  • Gustav2

    MSNBC has a Berniac saying if Hillary is the nom Trump will win. The Super Delegates should change their votes.

    • Bruno

      “if”

    • Yeah that’s what they believe – so not shocking.

    • Lazycrockett

      The fool thinks Bernie is still going to get the nom?!?!?!?

      • Bruno

        I’m hoping this is their “last stand,” in their minds until the nomination happens. I’m not confident in that hope.

    • PickyPecker

      try the cbs HD stream that Ray Taylor gave here in the thread. Is actually very nice quality and the idiot commentors aren’t on it. πŸ™‚
      https://twitter.com/i/live/753266580935446529?refsrc=email

      • Gustav2

        C-Span

  • Lazycrockett

    Yes MSNBC go right to the Protesters. SMGDH All this made up drama.

    • Gustav2

      Remember most of them started in local news, If it bleeds, it leads.

  • Steverino

    I bet Jake is glad his parents didn’t name him Dick.

    • RainbowPhoenix

      Fun fact: there is at least one man somewhere in the world whose legal name is Richard Head.

      • BearEyes

        I went to middle school with a Michael Hunt. He insisted on being called Michael and never Mike.

        • Good Shot Green

          I went to high school with a Mike Hunt. No way it’s the same guy.

          I work with a Barb Dwyer, which is an awesome name.

          • BearEyes

            No unless you were in CT.
            I do like Barb Dwyer as a name!

  • AW

    WHY ARE THEY ALL JUST TALKING OVER IT?!

  • Sam_Handwich

    here is MUCH more calm live coverage from PBS

    http://www.pbs.org/newshour/

    • kaydenpat

      Or C-Span.

  • TK

    They cut to the floor specifically because they thought people were chanting “Bernie”…not to hear the speaker. LOL

  • Ray Taylor

    That kid is great.

    • Scott Fitler

      Yes and that beautiful pure high note!

    • Lakeview Bob

      Very cute and very sweet voice.

  • Jay George

    What a precious child.

  • AW

    DAT’ NOTE!!

  • Ninja0980

    MSNBC has simply become Fox lite at this point… how sad.

    • PickyPecker

      I’ve switched that feed off. Commentary was just….ugh. Over at PBS now.

  • Lazycrockett

    They had more black people on in 1/2 hour than the RNC had on in 4 days.

    • ByronK

      And they even look like they belong there unlike the RNC where they looked like they’d been seconded from the arena’s cleaning crew.

    • kaydenpat

      Lol! And already a real Mexican-American speaker.

  • JohnJay

    For those complaining about annoying commentators and distracted coverage… try C-SPAN. No commentators; just the convention, and nothing but the convention.

    • Lazycrockett

      I usually watch MSNBC during the boring stuff then switch to the convention feed once the speeches and such start.

      • Octavio

        But the Chris Mathew stain always shows up and talks over everything. Nota fan.

        • Cboulder

          I think you mean spits on everything. I fixed it for you.

    • Sam_Handwich
    • kaydenpat

      That’s what I changed to from MSNBC, which was going out of its way to give voice to protesters.

  • PickyPecker

    YAY! good on the credential’s committee!

  • Lazycrockett

    “Look like america” Shade Thrown.

  • Lazycrockett
    • Lazycrockett

      Well didn’t get that fixed by the start.

    • Hue-Man

      Chris Kluwe: “And in the real world, you can choose between a woman with flawed but workable policies, or a racist, anti-Semitic fascist.”

  • AtticusP

    “First Lady Michelle Obama speaks.”

    And Debbie Wasserman Schultz rolls over.

  • PickyPecker

    LOL. one guy says NO.

  • Lazycrockett

    So MSNBC is just going to go to Bernie Bros every chance they get to try and be divisive.

    • kaydenpat

      Yep. I changed to C-Span.

  • Lazycrockett

    Barney Frank!! suck on that Bernie.

  • Sam_Handwich

    BARNEY!

    • Gustav2

      BARNEY! BARNEY!

      • Lazycrockett

        Barney will rips these fools heads off.

        • Gustav2

          Marcia Fudge got a shout out

    • PickyPecker

      YAY! I didn’t know he was going to be here. Ahhh…rules committee.

  • AW

    BARNEY! BARNEY! BARNEY!

  • bryan

    Bernie has lost control of his supporters…meaning they are no longer Bernie supporters….

    • ByronK

      Flying monkeys are great until you realize, shit, they’re monkeys!

  • joe ho

    msnbc more interested in interviewing bernie-or-busters than covering the convention speakers.

    • CNN is no better.

      • joe ho

        They’re all hungry for the drama of a Trump presidency. Good for ratings.

  • Jay George

    I want to hear Barney, not these talking frigging heads.

    • PickyPecker

      switch feeds, dear.

      • Jay George

        I was on twitter. Trying PBS now. Thanks!

        • PickyPecker

          PBS is good. Nice-sized view and good sound.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Throw your support behind her or get thrown under the bus. It’s really that simple.

  • thom

    booing barney frank

    • Lazycrockett

      children. should be seen not heard.

  • Sam_Handwich

    Norm Mineta….there’s a blast from the past

  • Lazycrockett

    That is a helluva lot of delegates.

  • Gustav2

    The ayes have it, bye bye. Gezz what do they want?

  • Lazycrockett

    There’s Da Fudge!!

  • David Milley

    Whew! Enough of the MSNBC junk … moved over to C-SPAN

  • Gustav2

    Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!

    • ByronK

      Well, it’s better than Fudge! Fudge! Fudge! πŸ˜‰

      • Gustav2

        “Fudge” was the worst cuss word my mother would use. lol

        • ByronK

          LOL

  • Jeffrey

    Trump raped a girl. Which is not nearly as bad as an email. Never forget that the media told us that.

    • RainbowPhoenix

      He also raped his first wife and attempted to rape another woman. Those are just the three that have come forward.

      • Jeffrey

        But at least he didn’t email anyone about it.

      • Lazycrockett

        But but that’s just part of Drumpf’s appeal.

    • MattM

      But trump is a man, silly. And a republican. So he’s immune from criticism.

  • PickyPecker

    Marcia has an infectious smile. πŸ™‚

    • ByronK

      She really does!

  • Sam_Handwich

    just read that Clinton is pulling advertising from Colorado

    trump can’t seem to break 40% there

  • TK

    So four days of booing any Hillary mention?

  • thom

    [email protected] sends text to delegates: “I ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor.”

    • Lazycrockett

      Bit too late there old fool.

      • JCF

        When you try to ride the tiger, sometimes you end up inside of the tiger…

    • kaydenpat

      But they’re acting ugly already. Sigh.

      • PickyPecker

        They won’t listen to him. He lost control long ago, or perhaps he never really understood them.

      • Circle Thomas

        Nothing says good optics like a bunch of white straight cis people booing POC and LGBTs at the podium.

  • bryan

    Well done Donna Brazile. A sincere apology. That’s how to heal and move on

  • MikeBx2
  • JCF

    Fuck, more booing. Gawddammit, infighting is NOT funny!!!!

  • thom

    well, this is going to be a shitshow.
    ridiculous

  • PickyPecker

    Question: if the Bernie folks continue to interrupt and act out, is it not Marcia’s job to have them escorted out?

    • Bruno

      IDK but I think they may have to. They can’t really run a convention that way for days. The GOP had some disturbances but not every time the candidate’s name was mentioned.

  • Octavio

    Why all of the booing?

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Bernie Bros en masse.

    • Gustav2

      Hillary’s name was mentioned.

    • PickyPecker

      BoB’s, don’t like hearing about Clinton so they are being children

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        Infants, not children. Children know when to shut up.

  • Gustav2

    Listen to Marcia Fudge bitches!

  • AW

    I really wish I was there to lend my voice of support to the Democrats. I think I’ll never forgive BS for the mudslinging that he did at Hillary during the primaries, and the fact that every time now that Hillary’s name is mentioned the fucking stupid Bernie delegates boo her. What complete morons.

    • kaydenpat

      Sad that it has come to this.

  • Lazycrockett

    Fudge aint having it.

    • PickyPecker

      She doesn’t look happy about that. Give ’em hell, girl!

  • Gustav2

    Hillary Clinton this is your time! This is our time!

    • kaydenpat

      Go on, Girl!! Go beat Trump!

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Great– is this what Bernie wanted? To have this convention become so nasty that we can’t even hear the person *welcoming* the delegates?

    • Jeffrey

      He created a monster that he had no ability to control…and this is the man that some wanted to run the fucking country.

  • Ninja0980

    Enough is enough.
    If folks can’t behave, get them off the floor and out of the building.

    • kaydenpat

      That’s how I feel.

  • Gustav2

    drop mic

  • Lazycrockett

    Tell its like it TIS.

  • PickyPecker

    ACT LIKE IT! lolol

  • AW

    “I’m going to be respectful of you, and I want you to be respectful of me” The fact that she has to say that is awful. ACT LIKE DEMOCRATS!!

    • Lazycrockett

      But they aren’t democrats.

      • RainbowPhoenix

        They should get the fuck out of there, then.

      • kaydenpat

        Good point. Perhaps in the future, Democrats should limit Presidential candidates to those in the Party.

  • JCF

    Anti-TPP? Both Hillary and Bernie oppose it!

    • Gustav2

      Stop with your facts.

    • Lazycrockett

      But Hillary didn’t cut her wrist to prove it, so shes really for it.

  • JCF

    Are they going to boo Obama, too?

    • Sam_Handwich

      probably

      they are russians

      • JCF

        Supporting the “Siberian Candidate”.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Bust the shit out of them Marcia.
    Infighting is great for Trump.

    What are the infants chanting now?

  • Lazycrockett

    I’m starting to believe in the Hillary Standard.

  • Ray Butlers

    Possums, let’s practice a little unity for a few hours, OK?

  • PickyPecker

    Isn’t there a Sgt. at Arms to help keep a little order?

  • Jay George
  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Why are you all commenting out of sync ?? Im watching Marcia Fudge, OH.

    • Jeffrey

      Because whenever you start it is the beginning. The ones who started at the actual beginning are further along.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        I Fast forwarded 119 minutes.

    • Gustav2

      And some of us are watching cable…c-span here.

    • PickyPecker

      PBS viewing here.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    These are rules. They are these things that adults use. Do try to control your followers, Bernie.

  • kaydenpat

    Yay!!

  • Jay George

    Lots of boos and nays.

    • Gustav2

      The nay-nays are the youngsters.

      • Jay George

        Yep. If it were the republican convention, they’d be removed.

        • Oscarlating Wildely

          Personally, I am for taking a page from that book at the moment.

          • Jay George

            Me too. If they don’t know how to act, remove them.

  • Cuberly
  • Mike in Texas

    Someone needs to pass out the Binkies.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Past nap time…… so past nap time……

  • TK

    Word…

  • Acronym Jim

    REWIND! Speedo commercial.

  • Octavio

    Leticia be speaking the Spanglish.

    • JCF

      Si.

  • Ninja0980

    The WikiLeaks antics did exactly what they were supposed to do, tear our party apart.
    Damn shame, it truly is.

    • David Milley

      While Putin and Trump gloat.

    • kaydenpat

      Bernie or Busters were doing that before the Wilileaks release.

  • Sam_Handwich

    i hope this works

    • PickyPecker

      BoB’s won’t listen…my guess.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        I have a friend named Bob, and you are right.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I really don’t care to hear Wolf Blitzer blapping away

    I’m listening on C-SPAN. I can’t stand the stupid commentary of the talking heads on CNN or MSNBC.

    I am really pissed off at the rudeness of the Bernie delegates who were so disruptive when the chair of the convention got up to speak. She ended her remarks by saying she would be respectful of all the people there and would listen to them. But she expected the same from them.

    • another_steve

      “I can’t stand the stupid commentary of the talking heads on CNN or MSNBC.”

      24/7 cable news coverage has resulted in a bastardization and degradation of TV news coverage.

      They have to keep blabbering in order to fill out all that time between the Cialis commercials.

  • Sam_Handwich

    anyone seen a breakdown of Dem primary voters by race?

    my suspicion is that Berners are 90% white

    • Bruno

      I think I recall him getting like 35% of the AA vote in Michigan and like maybe 20-25% in southern states…something like that. Not sure about other groups.

    • JustDucky

      Not 90% (although the Busters might very well be) but yes, Bernie voters skewed significantly white and male.

    • safari

      Can’t let the children believe they lost on their own merits.

    • Yeah. Sanders did not win a majority of pledged delegates, for Christ’s sake! He did not win the popular vote either.

      Perhaps Bernie should have laid off the anti-Hillary rhetoric when it was clear he lost, but he didn’t, so he made this mess.

    • Bruno

      Poor guy’s about to find out that it was never about him.

    • I think Bernie is going to learn tonight that his former supporters weren’t actually following him as a leader.

      And this is what it looks like, to rabble-rouse a mob, and then find out you were only marching in the same general direction they were for a while.

      It’s also what one gets when you decry the entire process as ‘rigged’ (even though it wasn’t), and then try to undo the propaganda.

      • Bruno

        These are an army of soldiers who ultimately don’t care who the commander is. As long as they’re pure.

        • Yep. And Sanders is no longer their ‘pure’ liberal-socialist messiah. I fully expect them to boo him tonight.

          • Bruno

            They’ll boo when he says anything about Clinton at least. Not sure how they can still cheer him when he endorsed such a wretched person.

          I think the Republicants would have loved to have had super delegates in this last cycle.

    • For some reason, they want us to believe Sanders would’ve won if there were no superdelegates, despite his not winning a majority of pledged delegates or the popular primary vote.

  • Cuberly

    Bern’s full statement:

    Here is Sen. Bernie Sanders’s full email message to his delegates:

    Dear Bernie 2016 Delegate,

    Thank you so much for your efforts on the campaign and your hard work
    to advance the political revolution. We have accomplished much. Much
    more needs to be done.

    The political revolution is not about one election or one candidate.
    It is about transforming America and continuing the fight for economic,
    social, racial and environmental justice. We have to continue to work
    together to advance the progressive future we all support.

    During this convention you represent not just the 13.3 million who
    voted for our campaign. You also represent the future of our movement.

    I am asking all of us to bear that in mind while we are on the floor
    of the convention. Our credibility as a movement will be damaged by
    booing, turning of backs, walking out or other similar displays. That’s
    what the corporate media wants. That’s what Donald Trump wants. But
    that’s not what will expand the progressive movement in this country.

    I know everyone is frustrated, especially by the recent DNC email
    disclosures. But, as a result of this disclosure Debbie Wasserman
    Schultz was forced to resign. This is a very positive sign.

    We have made great progress in the last year. Let’s continue going forward.

    I would ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest or demonstration on the convention floor.

    In solidarity,

    Bernie Sanders

    • Lazycrockett

        • Lumpy Gaga

          Couldn’t happen to a nicer vandal.

    • Sadly, he needed to say this back at the end of April and to disavow his claims that the primaries were ‘rigged’ against him. Regardless what the party did, it was voters who made their wishes known, and a solid (albeit not overwhelming) majority wanted Clinton.

      He also really kept muddying the water with the superdelegate bullshit, which would not have made any difference, save if THEY had decided to undemocratically pick him instead of the actual winner.

      • Lazycrockett

        The party did NOT do anything. people passed some emails back and forth and they were immediately shot down.

    • SoCalGal20

      Somebody should distribute that memo directly to the delegates making a spectacle of themselves right now. Not that they care. Bernie can’t control these people.

    We got another shout out! All of the letters!

  • safari

    Wow. Mentioned twice. In a row.

  • AW

    I love this man.

    • another_steve

      He was my representative here in Maryland for a while. Love him.

      Then — here in the world capitol of gerrymandering, Maryland — they redistricted and I ended up with another nice Democratic representative.

  • Nick Stadler

    What, no Harry Potter quotes, Rep. Cummings?

    • JCF

      LOL

  • bryan

    Wow, he is the real deal…. so needed right now

  • JCF

    Psst, Elisha, if you say “LGBTQ rights”, you don’t also have to say “gay rights”. πŸ˜‰

    • AW

      who cares?! We got mentioned twice!

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      I saw it as a historical overview, moving through time.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Its for the people that think lgbt is a sandwich

      • Piercedchrlz

        I attended a party like that once…

    Hopefully they will be hoarse tomorrow.

    • Lazycrockett

      Most of them wont show up after tonight.

      • AW

        hopefully.

      • delk

        Mom only gave them pocket money for one night.

  • AW

    SHUT UP! This is not the time.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    This is what is needed right now, this speech should be reviewed at length.

  • Cuberly

    Shouting over Cummings, NOT cool.

    • Bryan

      Let him speak.

  • JCF

    OMG, they’re heckling him w/ “Stop the TPP”. Arrrrrrrrgh!!!

  • David Milley

    “Stop TPP?!” Some people can’t take “yes” for an answer.

  • JK3

    Fuck them. They need to round up and throw all the TPP folks out.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    They’re chanting down Cummings with “NO TPP!”

    • Cuberly

      Thank you, I couldn’t make it out.

  • Jay George

    They are shouting him down but I can’t understand them.

    • PickyPecker

      NO TPP the Berners again

    • Lumpy Gaga

      NO TPP!

  • Cuberly

    Can someone tell me what they’re chanting? I can’t make it out.

    • safari

      No TPP

    • Joe in PA

      stop TPP

    • JCF

      Stop the TPP.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      more candy !

  • bryan

    Shame on anyone trying to disrupt this man’s speech…

  • Blake J Butler

    Can’t be good at the adults table, then leave children. Direspectful shits, interrupting Mr. Cummings.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Someone please throw out the court jesters.

  • Sam_Handwich

    what’s the chanting??

    fucking assholes

    • PickyPecker

      NO TPP

    • LackofFaithify

      Those assholes don’t deserve a fucking.

  • Jay George

    If they would shut up they might learn something.

  • PickyPecker

    They should be removed. period.

  • Ninja0980

    Time for them to be thrown out.

  • safari

    This is a good speech. The assholes shouting over it are terrible people.

  • ByronK

    This way over the line! Aren’t they listening?!!!!

    • PickyPecker

      I guess they feel they do not have to.

      • Joe in PA

        Obviously that is their ONLY issue. Sigh.

        • Jeffrey

          The issue that everyone on the DNC is against. They are chanting to the wrong motherfuckers.

  • Steverino

    NO TP (Trump / Pence) is what they should be chanting.

  • TrollopeReader

    From TPM:”The statement was signed by Donna Brazile, who is expected to serve as interim chair when outgoing chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) steps down at the end of the convention, and other DNC leadership. *Wasserman Schultz did not sign the statement.* [how nice!]

    Read the full statement below:

    β€œOn behalf of everyone at the DNC, we want to offer a deep and sincere apology to Senator Sanders, his supporters, and the entire Democratic Party for the inexcusable remarks made over email. These comments do not reflect the values of the DNC or our steadfast commitment to neutrality during the nominating process. The DNC does not — and will not — tolerate disrespectful language exhibited toward our candidates. Individual staffers have also rightfully apologized for their comments, and the DNC is taking appropriate action to ensure it never happens again. β€œWe are embarking on a convention today that β€” thanks to the great efforts of Secretary Clinton, her team, Senator Sanders, his team, and the entire Democratic Party β€” will show a forward-thinking and optimistic vision for America, as compared to the dark and pessimistic vision that the GOP presented last week in Cleveland. Our focus is on electing Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine and Democrats across the country, thanks to Democratic Party that is strong, unified, and poised for victory in November.” Donna Brazile, Incoming Interim Chair Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Secretary Andrew Tobias, Treasurer Raymond Buckley, Vice Chair, ASDC President Maria Elena Durazo, Vice Chair Mayor R.T. Rybak, Vice Chair Henry R. MuΓ±oz III, National Finance Committee Chair

  • halfwaythere

    Wow, I really didn’t expect all the chanting during the speakers. But while I find it rude, I also think it’s interesting that you really didn’t see that last week – that Democrats aren’t afraid of a little dissent.

  • AW

    Why aren’t they listening to him?! What he is saying is important and wonderful. Fuck them.

  • RainbowPhoenix

    Shouting over Cummings? Oh, there will be a reckoning.

  • Jeffrey

    Will no one rid me of these troublesome demonstrators?

  • bkmn

    In a democracy you don’t always get what you want but you don’t get to be complete shits because you didn’t get your way.

  • Sam_Handwich

    can any of these assholes explain their opposition to TPP?

  • Lumpy Gaga

    He’s throwing pearls before swine.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    He is talking about his dead father and they are sitting there chanting bullshit.
    Fuck you Sanders backers. Fuck you hard.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      With my crusty dick of doom.

  • 2patricius2

    Pathetic creatures crying out “No TPP” during Elijah Cummings’ address. This is a man who worked and suffered for progress. He deserves more from these petty delegates.

  • JCF

    He’s talking about his noble father, voice breaking, and they’re chanting over him. I just can’t…

    • Jay George

      Terrible behavior πŸ™

  • Blake J Butler

    I think we all can agree that everyone on ticket is opposed to TPP.
    Your just being disrespectful to a true civil rights leader.

    • Jeffrey

      embarrassing

    • Cuberly

      That’s what I’m not getting. They won on TPP yet…..they’re doing this?

      • 2patricius2

        I wonder how many of them have any brains.

      • bkmn

        For some, protest is all they have.

        • JustSayin’

          it is what whiny loser brats do.

  • Cuberly

    Cummings – “Get on board!”

    YES!

  • Jay George

    I’m going to go say something loving on his facebook page.

    • PickyPecker

      Wonderful and touching speech. Too bad it was partially marred by the bernie folks being assholes.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        I hope their parents send them to bed early, without dinner.

        • TrollopeReader

          and definitely no adult beverages ….

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Only time it wasn’t marred was when he thundered over the little white fuckers.

  • bkmn

    Way past time for Bernie to get back on the stage and tell these people to shut the fuck up or be tossed out.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      They will not listen to him. He’s past them now. He has no role in that mob.

      • bkmn

        I know. I just want someone to put these people on notice that there is a time and place for protest and this is not one of them.

        • Lumpy Gaga

          I want him to own his mob before God and Lady Gaga.

          • Joe in PA

            There’s a difference?

          • OdieDenCO

            Lady Gaga is a Goddess

      • JCF

        I believe you’re right.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Pottery Barn rule.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Exactly. Put him out there, NOW!

  • bryan

    What a fucking amazing man….

  • 2patricius2

    What disgusting boors.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Fuck YEAH, EC!!!!!

  • Ninja0980

    This was the disrespect shown to POC during the primary run and Bernie wonders why he lost?

  • Lumpy Gaga

    He was tearing up trying to get out his comments about his father. Fuck these animals.

    • Jay George

      I agree. Remove them from the convention. I bet it was a bunch of white kids too.

      • David Milley

        “Young Turk” types.

        • Cboulder

          What a dreadful show/webcast

          • David Milley

            I hold them responsible for promoting much of this unreason. I’ve never liked the idea of the left employing the rhetorical weapons of the right.

  • safari

    Well. This has started off as a train wreck.

  • Octavio

    I’ve got to stop watching and go disassemble the pool pump so I can pull the filters and flush them with the hose. A very painful job that involves getting fiber glass splinters everywhere while being soaking wet and suffering in the 114 degree heat. This morning the pool started looking green instead of sparkly blue. Ugh. See you all later tonight.

    • ByronK

      Good luck!

    • bkmn

      Hydrate and afterwards medicate.

    • PickyPecker

      Bye, Octavio! Hope it goes well for you! xo

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Hose flushing is important, good luck

    • David Milley

      Smart choice. ’til later.

    • danolgb

      Breaking down the pool filter is fun! I’ve been avoiding it.

    • OdieDenCO

      don’t they have pool boys to do all that hard work?

      • Octavio

        At $500 to clean filters and scrub the sides and bottom of pools, sure. I’m cheap.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      When my pool turns green, I just tip it over.

      • Jay George

        LOL!

    • Bryan

      Pool party at Octavio’s…

    • Joe in PA

      The only water around here is the garden hose. πŸ™ Hey, you make do with what ya got!

    • 2patricius2

      Sounds like you are choosing the better job. Easier than listening to the Bernie nuts on the floor boo everyone down. But take care. Drink lots of water and don’t get cuts.

      • Octavio

        Unfortunately, no. It’s too hot to do ANY physical activity outside, and that includes standing in the shade. So, I’m BACK!

    • TrollopeReader

      I thought you had pool-bois.

      • Octavio

        Pool boyze don’t pay for weekly chlorine tabs and anti algae chemicals. They just come by to top off the pool and vacuum clean.

        • TrollopeReader

          top off and vacuum clean …. got it !

  • TK

    They aren’t even selective about who they are booing.

    As each speaker goes up the people booing will lose more and more support.

  • Steverino

    The convention should hurry up the nomination so the protesters can walk out and thus bring some order to the place.

  • Gene

    I have never been more disgusted.

    and I will be working HARD to see that my congressman votes for the TPP. I had not been of that strong opinion about it before

    how can these fools be removed from the convention?

    • JCF

      I’m a Big Tent Democrat: you can be for, you can be against. I’m going w/ Hillary on this one, but I respect that Obama is still for it.

  • LackofFaithify

    BREAKING NEWS: Donna Brazile’s DNC database password is “password” says Kaspersky. πŸ™‚

  • Steverino

    “Hillary!”

    “Boo!”

    Drink!

  • Cuberly

    I don’t have a problem with dissent, in fact I don’t have that big of an issue watching this. But, there appears to be a disconnect between what message they’re protesting vs the pet issues they’re championing.

    I think I’m just confused.

    • Acronym Jim

      They are the ones who are confused.

    • safari

      They’re passionate… but acting incoherently.

      • Cuberly

        Passion is awesome, that’s why I get at least some of what they’re fighting for. But yeah, disconnectsville.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      You down with No TPP?

      Yeah, you know me!

      • Cuberly

        Ha!

        Not you too! /s

    • Bruno

      I think maybe they’re protesting the DNC and the convention itself?

      • PickyPecker

        I think they’re just acting out.

        • Bruno

          Might be 2 sides of the same coin…

      • Lumpy Gaga

        I’ll happily take their tickets. I hardly ever get floor seats at the Wells Fargo for big shows.

  • safari

    We include everybody. Even the children who speak over a national treasure.

    • ByronK

      Although they’re making a pretty great argument for birth control right now.

  • LackofFaithify

    WTF is Tormund Giantsbane doing a Wyndham hotel commercial?!

  • Jay George

    Time to stop pandering to the Sanders supporters. They don’t deserve it.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Hear, hear.
      Give a child a chocolate bar and you’ll end up making them a cake.

      • safari

        Except children usually don’t have the ability to start a floor fight.

      • Jay George

        If somebody would through a kegger in a nearby hotel, we would probably lose a bunch of them.

    • safari

      They need to be soothed. Their feelings are hurt.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Roophies are soothing.

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        Not working. They will only be satisfied if Hillary hands it over to him. That’s what we’re working with here. Unfortunately.

  • LackofFaithify

    Jesus CNN, all of your commercials are about telling the over middle age population about how they aren’t, in fact, about to die? Fox is doomed.

  • TK

    The Berners are booing and chanting over AfAm speakers with no thought as to what they are booing them about…and they wonder why Bernie didn’t connect with POC?

  • safari

    Chanting: Bernie

  • Lumpy Gaga

    You’re right. EVERY mention of HRC is getting met with chants and boos.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    BER-NIE!
    BER-NIE!

    • Steverino

      Drink!

      • Lumpy Gaga

        I don’t have enough booze.

        (Something I never thought I’d say.)

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      LO-SER!
      LO-SER!

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    And they chant away.
    Jesus, I hate these fuckers.

    • safari

      Chanting away while Rome burns

  • JK3

    They need to start pulling credentials. like yesterday…

    • bkmn

      Even if Bernie got back up on the stage they would still keep going. Get them the hell out of there.

    • safari

      It’ll just cause more chaos

  • Joe in PA

    I missed his intro…who is this guy?

    • Acronym Jim

      I don’t know. I think it’s my State Farm guy.

      • Joe in PA

        lol

    • PickyPecker

      Policy and Platform committee, I think.

    • Jay George

      No idea but his cadence is hilarious.

  • joe ho

    This is an example of the MAOISM of the regressive left–silencing, shouting down instead of dialogue.

    • Steverino

      Mao-Maoing the convention.

    • Cuberly

      But, the degree of accommodation the DNC showed Saunders re; drafting the platform was not small. Not by any degree.

      Like you said, where’s the dialogue.

  • SoCalGal20

    For those who want to watch without the commentary, here’s the C-SPAN link.

    https://www.c-span.org/video/?412845-1/democratic-national-convention-gets-underway-philadelphia

  • PickyPecker

    Lots of Maryland folks speaking on internal party things.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Noted that. True. Need some VA and PA now.

  • JCF

    Uh-oh, Ben Jealous. Uber-Berner.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Ben will get a warm welcome — he is not endorsing HRC.

  • LackofFaithify

    Fucking Preach Mr. Jealous!

  • safari

    Well. I’ll give the DNC this: passion isn’t lacking.

    • Bryan

      So much for a week of non-yelling…

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Shouting isn’t passion.

  • joe ho

    maybe jealous can talk some sense into the chanting berners.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      He is a Bernie delegate.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        First applause line of the day.

      • joe ho

        But he’s accepted reality and is behind Clinton.

        • Lumpy Gaga

          24 hours ago, he said he wasn’t endorsing.

          • joe ho

            he just said we have to get her elected.

          • joe ho

            Sunday on MSNBC, the former president and CEO of the NAACP and ardent Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) 2016 presidential supporter, Benjamin Jealous, said DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ resignation over Wikileaks releasing 20,000 emails that were stolen from the Democratic National Committee’s servers and showed a bias toward presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was the turning point for him to β€œmove on” and support Clinton.

            Jealous said, β€œAbsolutely, for me this is what I need to be able to endorse. This rips off the Band-Aid, it lets us move on, it lets our party begin to heal. And it’s what we have to do when we only have 100 days left to beat Trump.”

            He continued, β€œSure. I mean, as you said, this was dastardly. But Debbie’s departure, again, lets us move on.”

            When asked if he was endorsing Hillary Clinton, Jealous said, β€œNow I’m happy to do it. Now that Debbie has departed, I’d be happy to do it.”

            He added, β€œDebbie has stepped down, and we can begin to become one party.”

          • Bruno

            Interesting. Maybe he can influence others to just blame Debbie and move on.

  • Acronym Jim

    If I recall correctly, the GOP stream tended to mute the audience noise at times. Maybe that should be employed here, too.

  • Sam_Handwich

    he’s Been Jealous for a while now

  • Jay George

    Maybe they’re getting them all out of the way…

    • PickyPecker

      This is all convention business they’re getting out of the way this afternoon. Big name speakers will be this evening.

  • JCF

    Yay, he endorses Hillary! Whew, that’s a relief…

    Day 1: Blowing Bernie supporters

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Like his delegate votes, not sure they can get it up.

    • JCF

      In several senses of “blowing”.

    • Acronym Jim

      *raises hand*

      Yoo hoo?

  • Jay George

    Only crazy people scream non–stop.

  • AW

    Why didn’t bernie wrangle in his supporters before this? Why did he essentially go radio silent after he endorsed her? Why? What is wrong with him?

    • Lumpy Gaga

      How much time ya got?

      • AW

        Lay it on me…

        • Lumpy Gaga

          Be forewarned. I will answer only in the form of interrupting chants.

    • ByronK

      Passive aggressive resentment?

  • Nick Stadler

    Do none of these people know how microphones work?

    • Jay George

      I’ma have to mute this guy.

      • safari

        I like him. He’s got this preacher vibe.

        • Jay George

          I guess that’s my problem right there then. Cannot stand a screaming preacher. πŸ™‚

          • TrollopeReader

            hopefully none like the one last week. UGH!

    • JCF

      Well, TBH, Hillz sometimes forgets this, too. [Drumpf NEVER learned!]

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Its like the one they use on karaoke night.

  • bkmn

    I appreciate that Paul Waldman made the point in his column today about all the “Dems in Disarray” stories all over the media – he encourage the writers to ask the protesters if they are Democrats, and he said he expected most would not self-identify as Dem.

  • Joe in PA

    Yayayay wind and solar!

    • ByronK

      He’s got the wind covered.

    • PickyPecker

      We’ve invested heavily in wind farms here in IL. Amazing things.

    More on the Trump-Putin ticket.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jul/25/russia-dnc-hack-vladimir-putin-donald-trump-us-election

    From the article:

    Paul Manafort, the campaign chair formerly worked as an adviser to Viktor Yanukovych, former Ukrainian president and a Vladimir Putin ally ousted in a revolution two years who is now living in exile in Russia. And Carter Page, a Trump foreign policy adviser with a long history of financial ties to the Russian energy giant Gazprom.

    • bkmn

      A vote for Trump is a vote to expand the USSR to include the USA.

      • Hue-Man

        Putin will re-take Alaska to start.

        • bkmn

          As long as he puts Sarah Palin in a gulag I would be ok with that.

          • TrollopeReader

            How ’bout giving him all the Palins and tell him they ARE Alaska … we’ll keep the rest .

          • bkmn

            And tell him the Palins are never to have alcohol. That would be perfect.

        • Adam King

          Half-governor Palin will welcome him with open arms.

    • bryan

      Putin plays dirty. Like his doped up athletes.

      • PickyPecker

        Marcia Fudge. She’s running the show this week post ’email’ scandal.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Fudge.

    • Steverino

      Looks like they didn’t succeed in sending Fudge packing…

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Whoa. The “Aye” ers have had enough. Good for them.

  • Cuberly

    Progressive platform passes!

    GOOD!

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Platform adopted. Fuck off.

  • LackofFaithify

    And now even our music is gaining more Latino voters than Trump’s taco bowl.

  • AW

    Release the dancing delegates!!!

    • LackofFaithify

      Shake your booties!

    • Bruno

      Release the hounds! I mean delegates…

  • safari

    So, the DNC music has this NPR-y vibe.

  • ByronK

    This is starting to make the RNC look like the annual convention for the American Society for the Deaf.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Yes. More Salsa. Less spoiled brats.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I need to know !

  • Bryan

    And now: the dance portion of our program.

  • safari

    Maybe we should forgo elections and just have the parties do a dance off.

  • PickyPecker

    I’m outta here for dinner plans. Y’all have fun…and turn your sound down! lol

    • Steverino

      Save some scratch for me!

    • TrollopeReader

      what kind of dinner plans? it’s barely 6 pm !!

  • LackofFaithify

    OMG is that an interracial gay couple with a baby!? We are DOOOMMMMMEDDD. Jesus help us!

  • safari

    Needs more glowsticks.

  • Jay George

    I’m so glad the audience isn’t totally crackerized.

  • Ninja0980

    Not sure if I mentioned it but not so good news out of Ohio.
    The largest labor union there has endorsed Republican Rob Portman over the Democratic Ted Strickland.
    Throw in the fact this labor union had previously endorsed him, Sherrod Brown and Obama and this IS NOT looking good for us in flipping the Senate seat there.

  • Megrim Twist

    percussion break! shake your body down to the ground!

  • Cuberly

    Yeah it’s been raucous, but look at the makeup of the delegates! So many different faces.

    The GOP will never admit, those are the faces of the future.

    • Steverino

      While theirs are the faces of the obituary pages.

      • JCF

        Zing!

      • Cuberly

        …listed as endangered, or going extinct.

  • David Milley

    Oooh … this song — opening bars of “Come Together” — is a definite burn on the Drumpf.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Bob Brady!! My district!!!

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Independency has never been given.

  • ByronK

    Joe Pesci, is that you?

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Does he amuse you??

      • ByronK

        He’s actually charming in a funny way.

        • Lumpy Gaga

          Agreed.

  • Jay George

    Gotta feed my furbabies. Hope I don’t miss anything.

  • Steverino

    Finally! Silence!

  • safari

    Well. Chair.

    • JCF

      At least that chair ain’t talking back. :-p~~~

  • WIGuy

    Is it MOB night?

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I gots to go…The puppy says it’s time to go out.

    • JCF

      100 degrees here, the pup wants to stay right where she is: on easy chair, in air-conditioned comfort!

      • TrollopeReader

        79, but humidity in the 80% range ….

      • Adam King

        Mine are out, do their business, and in. Kind of like they do during a snowstorm.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    A moment of silence. THis should go well.

    • David Milley

      He got away with it!

    • Cuberly

      Actually , it did.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        They didn’t want to look bad?

  • Nick Stadler

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Holy shit– that’s my rep. He got younger. Again.

    • LackofFaithify

      LOL

    • ByronK

      Don’t they need like, I don’t know, pubic hair before they’re allowed to speak?

    • Kid looks like a student council president.

  • Cuberly

    Philly, makes me want to go to the Market Hall and get a Ruben at the Quaker deli.

    Soooooooo good.

    • Sam_Handwich

      you don’t want a sandwich, you want a Handwich!

      • ByronK

        Doesn’t everyone?

      • Cuberly

        Handwich/Corned Beef 2016!!!!

        • TrollopeReader

          now that’s a mouthful.

          • JCF

  • Nick Stadler

    Pennsylvania leads the nation with virgins in elected office.

    • Lazycrockett

      He’s probably a freak in the sheets.

  • JCF

    So are we past the Hillary-booing portion of DNC?

    No. }-X

    • They’re booing everybody.

  • safari

    He’s starting to get ripped into by the crowd. They see weakness.

    • ByronK

      They can smell fear.

    • Joe in PA

      They do that with 12 year olds. Damn, he looks young!

    • LackofFaithify

      He got off that stage quick, lol

  • JCF

    Grijalva, another Uber-Berner.

    • JCF

      …and he begins by endorsing Hillary! Yay.

  • TrollopeReader

    Except for the blue-ish tie, he looks like a Young Republican. (who seem to start wearing suits at age 8 ).

  • joe ho

    Hillary supporters should start chanting Hillary, Hillary every time her name is mentioned. They know the Bernsters will boo and they could easily drown them out.

  • Joe in PA

    I bet Octavio wears bolero ties.

    • ByronK

      He’s like a Latino Burl Ives. Yup, so dating myself.

      • Joe in PA

        Burl (what a great name) did a fine job with Rudolph the Red-Nosed ….

        • ByronK

          Yup!!

        • TrollopeReader

          The Land of the Misfits!

          • Joe in PA

        • ByronK

          A cultural touchstone. I actually refer to online dating as trying to find love on the Island of Misfit Toys. Everyone is missing a button for an eye, their stuffing is falling out or they don’t pop out of their box anymore.

          • Joe in PA

            don’t pop out of their box is a deal breaker IMO. Just saying.

          • ByronK

            Oh ya… lol

  • Acronym Jim

    I had to empty the dog. What did I miss?

    • LackofFaithify

      You had to…empty the dog…do I dare ask what that entails?

      • Acronym Jim

        Well, the side effect is having to refill her water and food dishes. After washing my hands.

        • LackofFaithify

          lol

      • coram nobis

        “Entails” is the least of it.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Visualize that little gift she left behind.

      Now multiply it by 1000 and have them all repeatedly SCREAMING AT YOU like you’re the problem.

      • Acronym Jim

        “She.” I’m a feminist.

  • Talisman

    Turned on my TV, and the first thing I see is people booing because Representative Grijalva said he supports Hillary.

    Congratulations, Democrats, you’re making the Republican shitshow look organized and united.

    • safari

      You missed the part when Rep Cummings got “NO TPP” chanted over while talking about his dead father.

  • JCF

    Grijalva carried water for Bernie for what, a year? But he’s getting boo’d like every other Hillary supporter. Just, just… I don’t have words.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Why do I feel like I should go to the library right now?

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Because it’s air-conditioned?

    • Bryan

      • ByronK

        More like a Mary Kay rep.

  • safari

    The best thing Bernie could do is die in his sleep.

    • ByronK

      Ouch.

    • JCF

      Please don’t go there.

    • Cuberly

      Not cool, not cool at all.

    • SoCalGal20

      No.

    • Way not cool.

  • AW

    did PBS change the mic’s or something? I don’t hear the burners yelling as much.

    • Acronym Jim

      It seems lessened on the official DNC feed too. Maybe they’re losing their voices.

      • AW

        Or maybe they are learning something here?

        • Acronym Jim

          Or maybe they got angry calls from their mothers after trying to drown out Elijah Cummings.

          • AW

            They should be grounded for life for that!

          • KCMC

            Time Out for everyone

            Hillary is setting up registration sites at Pokemon Go locations, seriously.

    • Sam_Handwich

      maybe they went out to get plastered

      • AW

        I think they came in plastered. Hopefully blacked out by now.

        • Jay George

          They’re out smoking a bowl.

          • Acronym Jim

            They should have done that to begin with.

          • LackofFaithify

            Gotta re-up bro

        • coram nobis

          Did that plaster have a union bug on it?

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Maybe the actual people with those assigned seats are starting to show up?

      • billbear1961

        How will we ever TELL??

    • ByronK

      They hyperventilated and passed out.

    • coram nobis

      PBS had a lot of trouble last week, with loud amplified (pirated) music playing in background and the GOP schlockcapades. Maybe their sound engineers figured out a way of balancing the background noise out.

    • Cuberly

      It’s calmed down a bit.

    • bkmn

      I am getting very serious about discouraging people from ever watching CNN. They have been virtually giving Trump a pass on all his hatefilled rhetoric while repeating every anti-Hillary statement made by anyone. Quit watching CNN and make their ratings suffer.

      Detained? No, no. We don’t have anyone in custody, nor do we have any records of any arrests. Any bodies found in a nearby river over the next week will be purely a coincidence.

    • Jay George

      Good! Hold ’em the rest of the week.

    • SoCalGal20

      After reading their update (instead of just the headline notification I got) 40 arrests from the protests outside, so maybe the ones inside just got sleepy or something.

          • Paula

            I learned it as ash tree. Around here, they use frenas as brakes. That could be regional. I know you are a native speaker, so I defer to your wisdom.

          • Octavio

            It’s an old joke. I’ve run into lots of gabachos from Fresno who insist the town is named after brakes. Frenos are brakes. They are all all dyslexic.

        It will give him broader broadcast TV coverage.

        It is a smart strategic move on part of the DNC. He has the chance to articulate what’s at stake.

    Now that I’ve read up on what those DNC emails actually said – Bernie supporters can absolutely go fuck themselves. You reckless collection of thugs have done nothing but attack a process you loved when it was going your way, and DWS was in every way right to be BARELY “mean” to someone running who is not even a Democrat. Why no one has told Mr. Sanders to piss off, I have no idea. What, are all ten of his followers going to stay home? GOOD.

      I had one who posted a RT.com link that totally mischaracterizes the emails they link which is unsurprising since RT is Russian-state-sponsored media.

  • karen in kalifornia

    Have CSpan on for the coverage. More boring (who are those people?) but lots less annoying with all the pundits running on and on about nothing and mostly highlighting nothing but the Bernie Bros. Through they have their points, c’mon folks, a repug prez would be a disaster.

  • Jay George

    Left the Native Americans out of that one…

    • avidreader

      Yeah, what’s up with that? Why does no one mention them? Is there an unwritten agreement that they be left alone?

        No and they shouldn’t. Talk about a disenfranchised group.

      • SoCalGal20

        They have the Native American Council that meets everyday of the convention so they do have a presence but it sure would be nice if they were included in people’s remarks.

    As a child, Malloy suffered from learning disabilities and difficulties with motor coordination. He did not learn to tie his shoes until the fifth grade. Malloy eventually was diagnosed with dyslexia[8][9]
    and learned the skills necessary to succeed academically. He does not
    write or type, and rarely reads from notes in public, but developed an
    extraordinarily useful memory.[10] He graduated magna cum laude from Boston College, where he met his wife Cathy, and later earned his law degree from Boston College Law School.[11][12]

        neither is their behavior, but hey they get to say what they want but I am supposed to keep quite? fuck that.

        • RainbowPhoenix

          Pick something besides calling for them to be killed.

          • JustSayin’

            I did not say shot with what, but then it is not up to you to tell me what I will say or do….stay in your lane..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            If you mean something besides bullets, then by all means specify that.

          • JustSayin’

            i will specify what I want when I want…stay in your lane and do not dare try and tell me what I will or will not say or do.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            If you don’t want to be criticized, don’t post on a public forum.

          • JustSayin’

            if you don’t want to be told to fuck off and that you are a twit, don’t post on my comments.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You seem to be confused. It’s the republicans who think that Freedom of Speech is Freedom from Criticism. They’re thataway.

          • JustSayin’

            you seem to be confused. you think you can try and tell me what to say and if I respond in a way you do not like than somehow your feefee’s are hurt and I am evil for telling you to fuck off using MY FREEDOM OF SPEECH that you would DENY ME

          • RainbowPhoenix

            I’m going to need you to quote where I said my feelings were hurt. I’m also going to need you to explain how exercising MY freedom of speech somehow denies yours.

          • JustSayin’

            it is the tone of your whining little baby bernie bro bitching that shows your feelings….your attempt to tell me to shut up and what to say or not say is your attempt to deny me my speech…typical fuckstains like you are the reason republicans view democrats as being hypocrits. You get to say what you want but demand that I don’t respond…now stay in your lane you loser fuckstain.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You still haven’t explained how it is “whining” to say that calling for people to be shot on sight is inappropriate. And again, Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Criticism.

          • JustSayin’

            your whining is a sign of your weakling status. you cannot stand to be told to fuck off. you do not get to tell me what to say. if you don’t like it, STOP READING AND REPLYING TO MY POSTS….your problem is solved and you can suck your thumb in a corner… douchbag.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Define “whining”. If you can’t stand being criticized, don’t post in a public forum where people who disagree with you will exercise their freedom of speech.

    • bkmn

        • RainbowPhoenix

          What are you, a republican? Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Criticism.

          • JustSayin’

            you obviously are clueless… it is the bernie bros that are trying to get a republican elected. as for your comment on freedom from criticism, you criticized i responded with what little I care about your opinion and its value to me…you are the one now whining that I am not allowed to CRITICIZE you… get over it, stay in you lane and bother someone else.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Where am I whining? Screaming about how your freedom of speech is being taken away just because people dared to criticize you fits much better under the definition of whining.

          • JustSayin’

            every thing you have written is a whine. as for freedom of speech you brought it up to try and silence me. you lying sack of genetically weak sperm

          • Steven Leahy

            You need some psychological help.

          • JustSayin’

            I am fine, you just need to grow the fuck up and quit being a quisling piece of shit .

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Uh, no. You brought up freedom of speech when people told you that calling for people to be shot is inappropriate.

          • JustSayin’

            that is denying me my right of speech..you tried it. you lost…but then your and your life are a waste of oxygen.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            No, that’s criticism, which is itself a form of Free Speech. Exercising my right to free speech does not impede yours.

          • JustSayin’

            no but when you try to tell me what I can and cannot say you are, and that is what you have done. no matter how you whine, that is the reality. if you don’t like what I say, DONT FUCKING REPLY TO MY COMMENTS…if you reply i will call you out for the stupid fuck you are.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            When you call for people to be shot in a public forum, people will call you out on it and criticize you for it. If you can’t handle that, don’t post in public forums.

          • JustSayin’

            you fail to realize that your complaints about my speech are an attempt to suppress my speech. You don’t not have that right and earn any response your attempt generates.. grow up!

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You fail to realize that Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Criticism. Maybe you would be happier talking to Sarah Palin than to a bunch of liberals.

          • JustSayin’

            you keep repeating that but then deny I can criticize your stupid statements….you don’t get it both ways you twit.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Quote where I said you can not criticize me.

          • JustSayin’

            every time your repost saying that your speech is criticism and that I cannot complain about it. . yeah it is a paraphrase and I am sure you will have to look up that word.. If you don’t like what I say don’t read my posts

          • RainbowPhoenix

            It’s not a paraphrase. It is a bald-faced lie. More evidence that you are a closet republican.

          • JustSayin’

            more stupid whines from a lying idiotic piece of shit trumpian bernie bro… you lie and then channel trump and deny what you do… fucking twit.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Trump makes outrageous claims against people and then refuses to back those claims up with evidence, just like you’re doing. Provide a citation or admit that you’re lying.

          • JustSayin’

            actually that is what you are doing. you tell me what I can and cannot say, don’t like my response and then whine because I call you out for your attempt to silence me… you are too stupid to really be anything but a trumpian bernie bro.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You

          • JustSayin’

            wow that was a wicked response…fucking twit!

          • RainbowPhoenix

            I experienced a computer hiccup and my comment was posted before I was ready. It was necessary to post the complete sentence in a different comment.

          • JustSayin’

            your very existence is a hiccup.. .the universe fucked up royal allowing you to hatch.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Wow. What a mature response.

          • JustSayin’

            well when talking to a trumpian child you use what they will understand..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You’re projecting like a typical republican. A word of advice: when calling other people childish, a refusal to even attempt to use proper punctuation ruins the effect.

          • JustSayin’

            wow now trying to repeat me.. next you will say “i’m rubber you’re glue..”/./ fucking weak ass child that you are..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You made the claim that I am “whining” and that I am trying to “silence” you, but have not provided any sort of definition of “whining” or any examples of how I have tried to “silence” you, just like Trump.

          • JustSayin’

            see there you go again with the lies. I tell you to fuck off and then you whine that your speech is criticism, meaning that I am supposed to shut up and listen to you.. no fuck off is a criticism of your post to me. you are a child and very trumpian at that.. you fucking imbecilic twit. if you don’t like what I say don’t read my posts.. problem solved.. now go fuck yourself.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You still have not provided any sort of explanation for how I have been “whining”. Until you do so, your tantrum has no meaning.

          • JustSayin’

            just read your posts is all the explanation needed. you whine and bitch and try to change the subject then cycle back to claiming me telling you to fuck off is not allowed because your speech is criticism, inferring that mine is not and that I an not free to say exactly the fuck what I want to, to you or anyone else… what an imbecilic twit you are and your trump channeling is boring.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            The explanation is yours to make because you made the claim. Only a child doesn’t understand that. And once again, despite what your buddy Sarah Palin tells you, Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Criticism.

          • JustSayin’

            no you demanded that I not say what I said.. you have no right or power to do that.. I owe you nothing, no explanations, nothing… and frankly your imbecilic trump channeling is a boring as your bernie bro whining all through the caucuses. you are a twit. if you dont like what I say, don’t read my posts… problem solved you mush brained shit stain

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Provide a citation. You made the claim so you bear the burden of proof. That’s how it works when arguing with an adult. Only children whine that they should be able to say and do whatever they want and that no one should be able to criticize them. If you have a problem with that, don’t post on a public forum.

          • JustSayin’

            no you read the thread. you engaged me. you tried to tell me what i can and cannot say. i owe you nothing.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            The accuser bears the burden of proof. That’s how it works among adults. If you can’t accept that, you are not an adult and you will not be treated like one.

          • JustSayin’

            no how it works among adults is that if you don’t like what I have to say you walk away.. but no, you decided to engage me and try and tell me what to do and not do… I owe you nothing. the proof you seek is your own words typed here, that you refuse to accept that reality just proves what an imbecile you are…

          • RainbowPhoenix

            How it works among adults is that when you post something inappropriate in a public place, you can expect others to criticize you for it, as is their right to do so. The fact that you threw a tantrum over that is just proof of what a child you are.

          • JustSayin’

            more whining from you. you do not get to say what is appropriate and if you choose to you get what you get. that is my right.. you keep trying to act as if you did not try and tell me what I can and cannot say and then whine whine whine when I tell you to fuck off. if you don’t like what I write, don’t read my posts or reply to them.. problem solved.. you fucking imbecilic child. did your parents bash your head on the wall or did you do it yourself?

          • RainbowPhoenix

            I am totally within my rights to act as if I didn’t whine or try to take away your freedom of speech, because you still haven’t explained how I have done either of those things. Because you are a child making outrageous accusations with no proof.

          • JustSayin’

            yeah you want your right to demand I do something someway that you will accept, which you will never do or get .. your rights end where mine begin. if you don’t like what i say do not read my posts. don’ t like my response to your whining then go fuck yourself once again.. walk away you imbecilic ignorant trumpian bernie bot child.

            your value to the human race is nil.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You still haven’t explained how I violated your rights, since Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Censorship, no matter what your buddy Sarah Palin tells you.

          • JustSayin’

            more denial from you,, your childish behavior is hilarious.. I am loving telling you what a stupid fucking trumpian twit you are. your questions have been answered, you just refuse to accept the answer or admit you tried to tell me what i can an cannot say because YOU did not find it acceptable.. fuck off.. you are just an imbecilic bernie bro who wants trump elected. the joy I get in keep you engaged here is that you are not spreading your santorum elsewhere.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Still waiting for a citation, since that’s what adults do. Adults also don’t make up their own definitions for words.

          • JustSayin’

            make sure you hold your breath for that citation.. or just read what you wrote from the very beginning.. sadly you won’t do either.. like a turkey you will not get out of the rain to save yourself from drowning… what a fucking moron you are.. but thanks for the evenings entertainment.. slapping around imbeciles is fun.. fucking twit.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            I don’t have to read what I wrote because I am not the accuser, therefore I don’t have the burden of proof. All you’ve provided is accusations based on your own made up definitions of words. You won’t be treated like an adult until you start acting like one.

          • JustSayin’

            more childish whining and demands from a fucktard…ooh how impressive…fuckstain..

            ahh feels good to have gotten rid of that massive smelly RainbowPhoenix… my plumbing survived…as for your whines you fail completely.. you are an imbecile a liar and trumpian bernie bro…you are useless as tits on a hobby horse and dumb as a stump.. now to see what other drivel and whining you have posted while I was evacuating my bowels of that RainbowPhoenix.

          • JustSayin’

            oh by the way I have to go take a smelly RainbowPhoenix.. hope it does not clog the plumbing… will be back soon to tell you to fuck off some more… my evenings entertainment…

          • RainbowPhoenix

            More proof that you are a child and you do not deserve to be treated like an adult.

          • JustSayin’

            how funny.. but that foul RainbowPhoenix i just evacuated from my bowels was much smarter than you are…

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You are continuing to prove that you are nothing more than a child who does not deserve to be taken seriously.

          • JustSayin’

            again you cannot say anything original.. I have been pointing out what a childish twit you are this entire time. you keep demanding I act and say what you find acceptable.. fuck off idiot.. if you don’t like my posts, do not read them…problem solved you waste of fucking flesh.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Like a child, you’ve done nothing but throw out wild accusations with no proof for no other reason than that someone dared to criticize you. Grow up.

          • JustSayin’

            wow you are truly stupid….you don’t like the answers you got. you try and tell me what to say and how to say it. you try and claim you get to criticize me but I don’t get to respond and then you act like a little girl and try to demand I do things the way you want….what a fucking ignorant imbecilic trumpian bernie bro child you are… truly how hard did your parents slam your head into the wall?

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Literally everything you just said about me is a lie. Only children do things like that. Grow up and accept that people are going to criticize you, especially when you say something inappropriate on a public forum.

          • JustSayin’

            again, no! you are an imbecile, you are a childish twit, you keep trying to tell me what to do. and you are not smart enough to walk away when you are whipped. While I am enjoying the hell out of this, you truly are stupid..

            You do not like it that you don’t get your way. you truly think your childish antics are acceptable and that people have to bend to your definition of what is acceptable.

            Bad news you ignorant little bitchboy, you are just stupid, impotent and a total waste. you are not smart enough to walk away.. I just love that you are so stupid.. it is the cheapest entertainment I have had all month.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Despite what your republican friends tell you, repeating a lie does not make it true. If you want to be treated like an adult, start acting like one. The first step is to stop lying.

          • JustSayin’

            again, that mirror you should be looking in just broke. you keep repeating lies and demand i behave the way you want. fuck off. told you that from the start. if you were not a trumpian child you would have walked away. instead you have chosen to provide me with an evenings entertainment telling you what a fucking moronic piece of shit your bernie bro trumpanzee ass is…

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Every time you repeat your lies, it confirms that you are a child and deserve to treated like one. If you want to be treated like an adult, start acting like one.

          • JustSayin’

            there you go again.. repeating that same stupid trumpian behavior. still proving how stupid you are and what a moron you intend to stay.. how fucking idiotic an brat like.. but just what we expect from trump and bernie as well as their ass lickers like you.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            More lies and more proof that you are nothing more than a tantruming child using words you don’t understand. Grow up.

          • JustSayin’

            there you go, too stupid to walk away and moron enough to keep repeating the same lies and expecting people to believe them.. very trump like… your idiotic self is funny, i am enjoying your continuous display of stupidity… that said you don’t get to demand anything from any one. you do not get to declare what is acceptable and what is not and you damn sure do not get to expect anyone to comply with your whining stupid childish shit.. you are a imbecile and twit.. a real waste of human flesh and less important than the steaming pile of
            RainbowPhoenix I just evacuated from my bowels..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You do not get to say inappropriate things and then expect no one to call you out. You do not get to act like a tantruming child and expect people to treat you like an adult. Grow up.

          • JustSayin’

            you do not get to say what is or is not appropriate. you don’t get to act like a 4 year old brat repeating the same things over and over. you don’t get to tell lies, make demands or in anyway control what any other person does.

            what you get to do is walk away or accept the criticisms of your idiocy and lies. you are a champion at them. you and trump are on the same par. you and bernie are both whiny morons… tough shit you do not like what I say.. ignore me if you don’t like it. I however will keep laughing at your stupidity and childish temper tantrums…

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Please stop listing everything that you keep doing. It makes you look like an even bigger child than you already do.

          • JustSayin’

            nothing original from you, you just repeating repeating what I have proven to be your behavior.. and still not smart enough to walk away.. it is kind of amazing that you can type… but once again

            YOU do not decide what is or is not appropriate. YOU don’t get to tell anyone what to do.. go fuck yourself you childish trumpian twit. you are a fuckstain.. get smart, walk away.. or no, I am enjoying your continuous childish display of stupidity..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Children often think that tantrums will make them feel better. It won’t. It will just make people look down on you and decide that you are not worth treating like an adult. Grow up, for your own sake.

          • JustSayin’

            ahh you think you are smart taking my words to you and trying to use them towards me.. you are stupid.. you are a twit. you are a child you are a trumpanzee. you are an ignorant fool and still not smart enough to walk away and deny me my entertainment.. what a fucking fool..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You are still talking about yourself. I’m not going to treat you like an adult until you start acting like one. The first step is to stop telling lies.

          • JustSayin’

            your attempted insults and characterizations are as idiotic as you are.. and you are still to stupid to walk away when your ass has been handed to you.. you continue with the childish attempts to claim “i’m rubber you’re glue” kiddie crap.

            you are a fucking idiotic moron, a trumpanzee, and a bernie bro. grow up, get lost and fuck yourself you stupid clown..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Still more projection. You have no one to blame but yourself for the fact that no one will treat you like an adult.

          • JustSayin’

            more grandiose lies from a childish fucktard. you some how think you are important enough to be called an adult/. that everyone will obey you and agree with you. that you actually know a damn thing. you are a fucktard. an idiot. a liar. a fool. an imbecile and a child. you are not smart enough to walk away and you keep trying to take what I said to you and bounce it back on me. what a fool. fucktard trumpanzee and moron.. your parents must be proud of your whiny ass.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Only children think that throwing out endless insults just because someone didn’t let them have their way makes them look smart. Everything you post proves that you are a child having a tantrum.

          • JustSayin’

            your lies will not help you.. you have proven you are dumber than dirt.. walk away little girl walk away.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            I have yet to see you provide an example of my supposed lies. Probably because you don’t have any.

          • JustSayin’

            every post you have made is a lie and every lame attempt to insult me is a lie.. yet you do not get to demand a fucking thing from me or anyone. you are a twit because you think you can.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Provide citations then. That’s what an adult would do. You are proving once again that you are not an adult.

          • JustSayin’

            why because you demand it? you are not smart. you don’t get to demand any fucking thing. your childish insults that I will not do what you demand are so telling.. but then all you do is
            whine whine whine whine whine..

            you are a little bitch who is not smart enough to walk away and not intelligent enough to accept the answers you have been given. you keep repeating the same lies, and the same demands.

            You started this demanding that I obey your wishes. that you get to decide what is appropriate. you keep demanding citations yet those are right above you in your own posts..lies and demands.

            you are a idiotic fucktard and I am happily enjoying calling you the piece of shit waste of flesh you are..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Because you expect to be treated like an adult. That’s not going to happen until you act like one. Every time you post you prove that you are nothing more than a child throwing a tantrum and deserve to be treated like one. Until you start acting like an adult by telling the truth and proving real citations, you will continue to be treated as a tantruming child, because that is what you are showing yourself to be.

          • JustSayin’

            keep whining bernie bro.. you childish idiocy and demands are telling

            whine whine whine whine whine.. that’s rainbowphoenix.. a whiner always whining that she does not get her way. .
            whine whine whine..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You still haven’t explained how my posts fit your definition of “whining”. Until you do, your accusations will continue to be meaningless.

          • JustSayin’

            the answer was given the first time you asked. you did not like the answer so you try to ignore it and demand another.

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Stop lying. All you done is throw out “whining” as if it means something. You haven’t said a damn thing about what it means. Probably because you don’t know yourself.

          • JustSayin’

            more lies and whines by rainbowphoenix. .the little bitch needs to put her big girl panties on.

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            I’m still waiting for you to explain what you mean by “whining”. Until you do so, your claims that I am whining are nothing more than another factor in your temper tantrum. Adults don’t throw words around without knowing what they mean.

          • JustSayin’

            you got it once now you are lying about it because you did not like it. you won’t get it again.. you are a lying whining piece of trumpanzee bernie bro little girl shit

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            More projection. If you would just admit that you don’t even know the definitions of the words you’re using, you might be treated like an adult.

          • JustSayin’

            there you go again..don’t like the answer you ignore it and tell another lie.

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Stop lying. You have categorically refused to explain what you mean by “whining”. It’s just a word you throw out without having any meaning. Only children do things like that.

          • JustSayin’

            another lie. another citation to meet those childish demands of yours..

            you are a liar. a child. a trumpanzee. a bernie bro.

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Every time you project and lie like that you prove that you are a tantruming child who does not deserve to be treated like an adult no matter how much you demand it.

          • JustSayin’

            another lie..three in a row. more citations.
            you are a liar. a child. a trumpanzee. a bernie bro.

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

            off to dump another smelly rainbowphoenix.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            If it’s a lie than provide a citation. That is your responsibility as the accuser if you want to be treated as an adult. Your refusal to act like an adult is the reason you are not being treated like one.

          • JustSayin’

            oh, by the way your extreme butthurt is palpable in every post you make.. everytime you repeat yourself and in every lie you tell.. still just not smart enough to take you butthurt and crawl away in your smelly diapers…

          • RainbowPhoenix

            More lies and more projection. You’re not going to be treated like an adult until you start acting like one.

          • JustSayin’

            again with that mirror.. you keep repeating that shit but are still too stupid to walk away.. yes you trumpanzee you are an imbecile..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Every time you lie and project it proves that you are a tantruming child and deserve to be treated as one.

          • JustSayin’

            yet you are the one getting spanked with your own imbecilic behavior and lies. you then run up to a different post to try and sneak in another lie. you are a moron. a liar and twit you trumpian asswipe.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You are still projecting and you are still proving that you are nothing more than a child having a tantrum.

          • JustSayin’

            there you go, sneaking in another lie.. what a fucking imbecile you are.. childish twit, idiotic moron.. trumpanzee and bernie bro.. all add up to you being a massive fucking liar, idiot, and fool

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You made the claim that I am lying. Act like an adult and provide a citation for your claim. If you do not do so, you will prove that you are a child and deserve to be treated like one.

          • JustSayin’

            there you go again demanding I do something you want just because your whiny ass says so. your lies are legion, look two posts up. you are projecting. I have been saying the same thing from the first time you tried to tell me what to do, what to say and how to act.. you are a child yet you think you can just keep repeating that I am, tell lies and projecting, to deflect the reality of your idiocy. Your trumpanzee behavior. your lying bernie bro ass.. you are fucking stupid.. you keep making demands you have no right to make and think that proves something.. it does, that you are an idiot and a childish twit.

            don’t like me calling you out in the terms that fit you? fuck off and ignore me.. .but no you are too stupid to do that.. instead you keep giving me an evenings entertainment with your stupidity and childish behaviors.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            More projection. No one is going to treat you like an adult until you stop behaving like one.

          • JustSayin’

            ;little bitch keeps making the same whine…

            whine whine whine whine whine.. you are such a fucktard and whiny little bitch.. grow up you idiot.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You have yet to provide a definition of “whining” or how it is “whining” to point out that you are a tantruming child who has not had his freedom of speech violated. Your refusal to do those things is yet more proof that you do not in any way deserve to be treated as an adult.

          • JustSayin’

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

            you mistakenly believe that your demands I do anything actually matter.

            You mistakenly believe your whining is credible.

            you mistakenly believe that your attempt to tell me what is and is not acceptable and how I will speak is a right you have.

            you will not in any way shape of form limit or affect my rights of free speech. your attempts started this whole thread.

            You are a fucking idiot

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Stop lying. Tools like you obviously need to have it explained over and over that Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Criticism. Criticism is itself a form of free speech, one you obviously don’t think anyone else has. Not a single person has tried to infringe on your freedom of speech. Only children and republicans think that they can say whatever they want and no one is allowed to criticize them.

          • JustSayin’

            telling me I cannot say something because you do not approve of it is not criticism it is you telling me what my speech will be.

            you are a liar, a child and a trumpanzee..

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Only children and republicans think that they should be able to say whatever they want and no one is allowed to criticize them. Which one are you?

          • JustSayin’

            you keep demanding citations for your lies and whines.. look up one post to what I am responding too. another set of lies.

            you tried to tell me what I could and could not say. period. that is trying to deny me my rights of free speech. you keep trying to ignore what you have done that started this whole thread.

            you are a liar. a child. a trumpanzee. a bernie bro.

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You made the accusation, so you bear the burden of proof. That’s how it works among adults. Adults also understand that criticism and censorship are very different things. You have proven once again that you are nothing more than a child having a tantrum because you weren’t allowed to do whatever you wanted.

          • JustSayin’

            it has been proven you just deny it happened. it is at the top of the thread. you lie.

            you are a liar. a child. a trumpanzee. a bernie bro.

            whine whine whine whine whine that is the noise RainbowPhoenix makes as he lies lies lies.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You have not provided a single shred of proof. You won’t be treated like an adult until you stop lying about that.

          • JustSayin’

            oh and by the way when you claim that criticizing free speech is your right but try and deny me my free speech you prove what an imbecile you are.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Every time you try to claim that being criticized is a violation of your freedom of speech, you prove that you are a republican in disguise.

          • JustSayin’

            you are the one trying to say I cannot criticize you. whine whine whine whine..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Citation needed.

          • JustSayin’

            you have the whole thread you little child.. no go play with the shit in your diaper..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You made the claim, so provide evidence for it.

          • JustSayin’

            you have the entire thread learn to read the crap you write. twit

          • RainbowPhoenix

            And I can not see a single time that I said you can non criticize me. Just whining from you about how criticism violates your freedom of speech.

          • JustSayin’

            no you just refuse to acknowledge your own behavior.. very trumpian and bernie bro of you… deny deny deny… you try and tell me what I can and cannot say and then whine when I tell you to fuck off… imbecile.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            I’m still waiting for you to provide an example of how I “whined” and where I said that you can not criticize me. Provide a citation or admit that you are just a spoiled brat who can’t stand being talked back to.

          • JustSayin’

            every post you have made is a whine you diaper wearing shit playing trumpian bernie bro baby. you are a twit and behave exactly like trump. lie and then deny you did… imbecile.. don’ like what I have to say, move on! ignore me. other wise I have all night to keep telling you what a fucking waste of human flesh you are..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Because you refuse to provide a definition of “whining”, your claim that I am doing so has no meaning. All I see is a continuous tantrum from you because someone dared to criticize you. Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Criticism, despite what your republican friends tell you.

          • JustSayin’

            more stupid childish bernie bro trump channeling crap from you.. whine whine whine. temper tantrums from a bratty shit eating child.

            oh and since you cannot recognize it, you have been criticized yet again.. idiot.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Explain how I have been “whining”. Until you do so, your claims are nothing more than a tantrum born from being criticized, which is not a violation of your free speech.

          • JustSayin’

            you refuse to accept the answer you have been given, repeatedly given.. you are a ignorant bernie bro trump channeling child.. go fuck your rubber ducky.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            Your answer has no meaning because you refuse to define what “whining” is. Words have meanings.

          • JustSayin’

            more denial and ignorance from a bernie bro who supports trump… what a pathetic piece of shit you are..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            More whining from a spoiled child who can’t handle criticism.

          • JustSayin’

            hopefully your mirror did not crack as you said that. you don’t like being told to fuck off, and instead you keep responding to my posts. I think you are ignorant and am loving laughing at your pathetic whines and complaints.. you ignorant stupid trumpian shit stain.

          • RainbowPhoenix

            More projection. Typical republican. I’m still waiting for an explanation of how I am “whining” by pointing out that no one is violating your freedom of speech.

          • JustSayin’

            you are such a childish piece of shit. you got the only explanation i will ever give you.. don’t like it then fuck off. I owe you nothing. you don’t like what I say, then grow up, put on your big girl panties and walk away..

          • RainbowPhoenix

            You haven’t provided an explanation. You just made more outrageous claims with no proof. You’re just like Donald Trump that way.

          • JustSayin’

            you keep ignoring the only explanation you will get than post shit like this. which by the way is more whining on your part because I am not going to obey your childish trumpian demands. you demented bernie bot..

            you are right bill I am, and as I said to the whine in chief below, i did not say shot with what.. you chose to interpret that any way you want.

        • BillBear is trying to help you, JS. And he’s correct.

          And don’t play pedantic games. You knew what you were saying, and calling for violence will get you banned here.

          No, I’m not JMG’s conscience either. But we do know the rules here and calling for people to be ‘shot on sight’ is out of bounds.

          • JustSayin’

            no that is your opinion of what I wrote, you and others have written much worse on here… don’t like it? block me!

          • Hardly, JS. I’ve never ever advocated violence against others. Yet you’ve done it a bunch of times now in this thread.

          • JustSayin’

            no you just try and couch it in your own brand of sniveling.. I have read your words and frankly you tend to express that everyone is wrong but you… it sounds like a sad life…

      • coram nobis

        Tina Turner?

    • Bryan

      In a Fantasy Football kinda way, Nina Turner as VP could have been kinda fun, but she doesn’t have the experience yet…

  • From the Rude Pundit:

    You know who will get hurt by a Trump presidency? Every fucking group you think you’re defending with your purity. And don’t fucking get upset when we say that not voting or voting for Stein or Johnson is as good as voting for Trump. It’s as good as voting for Trump because Clinton is the only candidate who can beat him, and any vote not for her is a net gain for Trump, and that shit’ll matter in states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and elsewhere. And, yeah, fuck you if you think that voting for Clinton to stop Trump ain’t enough of a reason. It is enough of a reason. It’s always been, in every election, enough of a reason. Sorry, sunshine, that’s the fuckery of democracy.

    Fuck you for not knowing your history and not wanting to do everything you can to stop someone like Trump from ascending to the White House and appointing Supreme Court justices, which will fuck us all for the rest of our lives. You know who agrees with us and disagrees with you? Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren. Michael Moore. President Obama. And a fuck-ton of liberal writers (and a shitload of conservative writers, but fuck them where they stand anyways).

    Do you think we’re all just lying to you? Do you think people across the left are liars or shills, including the dude you worshipped all this time? Or maybe, just maybe, we are sounding a warning bell, telling you that this shit is real. A Trump presidency is realer in its consequences than a Clinton one, however bad you think a Clinton presidency might be. Fuck, the Washington Post took the really unusual step to say, “Yeah, fuck this. Trump is a psychopath. Stop him.” That’s unheard of.

    Don’t damn us to be Cassandras. Don’t let us stand there in 2017 and forward and say, “Told you so.” Probably from our cells in the gulag.

    The whole thing is worth a read.

    http://rudepundit.blogspot.com/2016/07/trump-russia-clinton-email-and-great.html

    The one closing thought I’d add is to those who are in solid Red or solid Blue states who don’t think their protest vote or decision to sit out the election will matter. First, fuck you for completely misunderstanding that democracy doesn’t mean you’re entitled to win or for the dominant party to pay attention to your protest vote (or lack of participation). Rather, it’s this: Clinton and the Democrats also really do need to win the popular vote, too, because if it’s close and Trump is ahead by even the teeniest bit, don’t delude yourselves into believing his supporters won’t riot and demand their baby-handed Mussolini be installed anyway. Don’t delude yourselves into thinking Trump himself won’t demand it.

    And on top of everything else, regardless who sits in the White House, it matters who runs Congress and who is in charge of the states that have been gerrymandered to hell and back to give the Repugs their majorities, despite consistently receiving fewer votes overall.

    Vote dammit, because the rest of your life and those of your kids depends on it. And yes, the only two choices are Clinton or Trump.

    • coram nobis

      Rudy also had this:

      The joke part is that this Trump/Russian connection is a real email scandal. This is what it looks like. It looks like a dictatorial ruler of a country that is at odds with ours using hacked emails to get his hopeful stooge elected. The big investigation now should be if there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

      A vote for Stein is a vote for Trump … is a vote for Putin, it seems. But Rudy does have a point: let’s see where the investigation goes on this one.

      • The other thing, too, is RP was a pretty ardent Sanders supporter. He knows what’s at stake here.

        • coram nobis

          Yes, and Rudy’s trajectory has been a logical one. Bernie had a good run, and now it’s time to fold the tent before it blows away in that storm.

    • billbear1961

      I saw a Berner say, “Better 4 years of Trump doing nothing than a Clinton presidency.”

      But Trump, for all his LIES and extremist proposals??

      Trump, for his indebtedness to Russian CAPITAL, which keeps his business empire afloat, and puts him in Putin’s POCKET??

      “Oh, how CAN you make such wild accusations? We’re just too busy cashing in on 24/7 COVERAGE of him to look into such SILLY suspicions!”

      If HILLARY were up to her neck in debt to the Russians and altering her party’s platform to please them, if SHE were praising Putin in similar circumstances and undermining NATO to please him, Trump, the GOP and the media would be ALL OVER THE GODDAMNED STORY!!

    Hey, Nina (Turner, the Berner)—where’s DEMOCRACY in all this? That Hillary won the MAJORITY of the delegates? Does democracy not matter in all this? Or is that some dispensable “bourgeois” thing?

    • LackofFaithify

      Hate to be the government fact nazi, but we are not, in fact, a democracy. Long live the Republic.

      • ‘Democratic Republic.’ Many different forms of republics, depending on who is allowed to choose the leaders.

    Off to the newer thread…

    Thanks for providing this. No cable in my house. And this way my partner can watch Youtube on the TV. Hey, opposites attract.

    The convention is more enjoyable watching it on CSPAN. Avoid all the commentary and commercials.
