    I don't know - why can't you?

    He's the presumptive nominee for the GOP in '24.

    Regardless, this ain't no nothing burger. Trump & his allies actively sought to overturn legitimate election results. If the Dems did what they tried to do - sending fake electors, calling election officials to "find" votes, pressuring a VP to act unconstitutionally - Fox & the right would be losing their minds.

    Exactly, but don’t get biased commentary from talking heads confused with hard news. I’ll watch hard or live news (that is, news without commentary) on any outlet that’s handy. But I prefer my commentary to be from a conservative perspective.

    Once again, most (not all) of the COMMENTATORS on Fox are right wing or libertarian. In the context of this particular political situation, if people like you are going to continue claiming to be impartial and objective, you are going to have to get out of your comfort zone and listen to a little right winger COMMENTARY. It is literally the equivalent of the GOP being able to call and cross examine witnesses and present evidence in that committee, which is totally fucked up.

    And how do you know all that crap is true? Not to mention, is it illegal? Hell, even if he did get into it with the secret service over going to the capitol, it’s not illegal for a president to have a tantrum. They’re famous for it going back to George Washington. And you might be forgetting that you guys have tried making it a crime to not do anything about the riot. Seems to me if the guy wanted to go to the capitol, he wanted to do something about the damn thing.

    Something else you might not know. Mark Meadows has written letters to most of the boneheads on that committee. It tells them to save all their texts, emails, other correspondence, and “evidence” they’ve accumulated. Sounds like there might be a new investigation after the mid-terms. I hope it’s different, and at the same time I hope it’s an exact mirror image of this one. Then you might understand.

    I don't necessarily disagree w/ most of that. This is a pretty fair take on things.

    I do watch some Fox; I try to mix it up. The night shows are mostly commentary on most of the networks. Truthfully, they all annoy me a bit. I don't feel like any of them are being a "watchdog," which is one of the great values of the media. They're mostly propagandists now.

    I don't care about the steering wheel. Trump has a temper. Clinton had a temper. Biden even has a temper. Lots of leaders do. I care more about Trump trying to talk election officials into "finding votes" and stuff like that. If there is another investigation that conservatives would be more open to considering, I wouldn't oppose that.

    Indeed.

    Nothing to see here.

    The Secrat Service guy and the driver will not be allowed to testify because they would expose perjury by the star Democrat witness.

    These brain dead yahoo's know good and damn well, that crazy mf, ie Trump is a power hungry deranged lunatic....but as long as he hates on blacks, gays, latino's and bunnies. these racist mf's could give a damn about this man and dangerous he was as president. Bottom line, they don't care, they're dug in and can't wait for this nation to become the shit ho, Trump is trying to create.

    What Trump did on 1/6 and what he's doing now, is nothing but treason and why the DOJ continues to look the other way, waiting on the election in the NOV so the GOP can shut it down, amounts to treason also.

    Evil is a construct.

    The Conned are not evil for falling prey to a master con man.
