  1. SMH. More evidence of the anti-LGBT filth coming from this administration. Carson made dismissive comments about transgender people Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson expressed concern about “big, hairy men” trying to infiltrate women’s homeless shelters during an internal meeting, according to three people present who interpreted the remarks as an attack on transgender women. While visiting HUD’s San Francisco office this week, Carson also lamented that society no longer seemed to know the difference between men and women, two of the agency staffers said. Carson’s remarks visibly shocked and upset many of the roughly 50 HUD staffers who attended Tuesday’s meeting, and prompted at least one woman to walk out in protest, the staffers said. Carson has a history of making dismissive comments about transgender people. While running for president, he referred to transgender people as “abnormal" and said they should not be in the military. As HUD Secretary, he weakened Obama-era protections for transgender people, saying he believes in equal rights, not “special rights.” In May, the agency introduced a proposal that would allow federally funded shelters to deny people admission on religious grounds or force transgender women to share bathrooms and sleeping quarters with men. Carson has addressed the proposed change using different terms in public, most notably during Congressional hearings, when he has said his responsibility is to “make sure everybody is treated fairly. ” But he has repeatedly mocked transgender people in internal meetings in Washington, according to a government official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations in which the person was involved. “His overall tone is dismissive and joking about these people,” the official said. “It’s disrespectful of the people we are trying to serve.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/09/19/hud-secretary-ben-carson-makes-dismissive-comments-about-transgender-people-angering-agency-staff/
  2. I already said I didn’t support Bernie in 2016 and don’t support him now either. BTW many of these “millennials” you love to rail against have moved on from Bernie also. He’s not getting nearly the level of support or enthusiasm he had in 2016.
  3. Never by you. You clearly don’t give a shit about Trump’s constant lies. And that’s his point.
  4. Yes it’s always funny to see conservatives being nostalgic and longing to go back to the “good old days”. You mean the days when women were forced to stay in the kitchen and couldn’t even access birth control, when gay people were forced to stay in the closet and even feared getting arrested, when black people had to sit in the back of the bus and use separate drinking fountains? When straight white men ruled and oppressed everyone else? Those days? Yeah, what amazing times those were.
  5. TDIT!!!

  8. C’mon NC. Do the right thing and vote Tillis and Trump out.
  9. At least he apologized. More than can be said for our poor excuse of a leader. Justin Trudeau Says He Is ‘Deeply Sorry’ After Brownface Photo Surfaces https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/18/world/canada/trudeau-brownface.html
  10. Trump is no friend of our military. Pentagon has warned of dire outcomes if military projects canceled for wall don’t happen The Pentagon warned of dire outcomes unless Congress paid for urgently needed military construction projects nationwide — the same projects that have now been canceled to fund President Trump’s border wall. The warnings are contained in Defense Department budget requests sent to lawmakers in recent years. They include potentially hazardous living conditions for troops and their families, as well as unsafe schools that would impede learning. In numerous cases, the Defense Department warned that lives would be put at risk if buildings don’t meet the military’s standards for fire safety or management of explosives. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/pentagon-has-warned-of-dire-outcomes-if-military-projects-canceled-for-wall-dont-happen/2019/09/18/03e99ac6-d988-11e9-ac63-3016711543fe_story.html

  12. Trump’s communications with foreign leader are part of whistleblower complaint that spurred standoff between spy chief and Congress, former officials say The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trump’s communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter. Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, said the officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/trumps-communications-with-foreign-leader-are-part-of-whistleblower-complaint-that-spurred-standoff-between-spy-chief-and-congress-former-officials-say/2019/09/18/df651aa2-da60-11e9-bfb1-849887369476_story.html

  14. LOL it’s hilarious to see Trump supporters suddenly pretending to care about national leaders being racist. Their crocodile tears mean nothing.
