    Not the one you asked, but yes, if you post the page numbers where the Mueller report states Mr. Trump lied I will read them.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Would you provide a source for this claim?
  7. I was unable to locate the article you're referring to so am unsure in what context Mr. Grassley made his comments. However, when you consider that firing Ms. Grady and assigning Mr. McAleenan as acting DHS Secretary would result in eight senior positions either being unfilled or filled as acting positions, my suspicion is that Mr. Grassley's stability comments referred to the leadership at DHS, and not Mr. Trumps mental status.

    Thank you. Yes, I do. However, considering your clarification I'll keep them to myself. This naming convention isn't universal. As I mentioned in my edited post, it was uncommon in south Texas where I grew up. Where I currently live there is a large Hispanic immigrant community and it is quite common. Again, I agree with this. There is no excuse for mocking anyone's name. As I previously mentioned I don't follow Ms. Ingraham. If she does this only with Hispanics, then yes, this is indeed an ethnic slur. On the other hand, if this is how she treats everyone with whom she disagrees, then that is just a gross lack of common courtesy.

    Is this a general comment?

    The way some, but not all, Latino cultures do. And I'm not surprised that some, or many, Anglos are unfamiliar with this practice. I was reared in South Texas and went to school with a large number of Hispanic students, and this naming convention. Years later, while I was on active duty I served with a Marine of Puerto Rican descent. She explainednthis to me, and further stated that there was some variation in practice, even among those of the same ethnic background. Ignoring it doesn't necessarily means she's racist, just uneducated. Making fun of the custom? Possibly racist. I don't closely follow Ms. Ingraham as I've always thought her to be an idiot so can't say so for sure. Actually, in the snip of video I saw it was Mr. diGenova that made the "Latina thing" comment, not Ms. Ingraham. ETA: This sentence was incomplete and should have read: I was reared in South Texas and went to school with a large number of Hispanic students, and this naming convention was not common..

    Racially motivated? Perhaps. Stupid and ignorant? Without doubt. A person's name is what he or she says it is. I'll admit I sometimes am unsure as to how to properly address persons with hyphenated names, regardless of ethnicity. However, when told what the proper name is, and how the person wishes to be addressed, you do as they wish. Not doing so is rude and argumentative and displays an intentional lack of common courtesy. I don't think so. I think she attracts attention as a result of some of the statements that she's made, and these are fair game. However, I think concentrating on her dancing video, that she worked as a bartender, her comments about not having a place to live in D.C., and others of this sort is asinine and makes those doing so look childish and as if they are unable to address her on the issues. Whether she's a rising star or a flash in the pan remains to be seen.

    Not that I agree with how he said it, I'm curious. What exactly did you find offensive? The name calling? Challenging their intellect? Or the post in its entirety? And at the risk of being accused of whataboutism, how is this different from comments from many on the left, to include some non this site, directed toward Mr. Bush or Mr. Trump?

    No, we're not. And again, please don't include all conservatives as blindly following and defending Mr. Trump.

    Yes, Ms. Lysiak, publisher of the Orange Street News, is quite the investigative journalist, and I am not surprised that she didn't let the officer browbeat her. I first read about her in 2016, as the first to report on a murder that had been committed in her community. If she continues as she has, she should have quite the career as a journalist.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    There are two issues here. First, the content of the bill that was signed into law, and second, Mr. Northam’s comments. Regarding the content of the bill. Yes, it would allow late-term abortion in instances in which the life or health of the mother was in danger; to include after the onset of labor prior to delivery of the fetus. While I would hope that after carrying the pregnancy to term the expectant mother would opt for cesarean delivery, this decision is neither mine, nor yours to make. As for Mr. Northam’s comments. It seems to me that you, and many that oppose abortion, are taking his comments out of context. None of the video that I have been able to find includes the question that he was asked, and all begin with his response. And while Mr. Northam generally supported the bill, it appears that his comments were in response to a specific hypothetical question. Gov. Northam defends abortion bill comments after backlash
