Vashta Nerada BS: Trump is a one trick pony (514* d) RE: BS: Trump is a one trick pony 16 Nov 17

A frenzy of "he did it also!" reports coming out, fast and furious. The gush of reports from victims serve a couple of purposes - they put serial offenders on notice, that whether by shunning or prosecution, their days of sexual abuse are numbered. But there is the Tu quoque (Whatabout so-and-so?) logical fallacy happening right in front of our eyes as well, intended to draw attention away from the crimes and misdemeanors of Donald Trump.

Harvey Weinstein was a bad actor, so to speak, as is Roy Moore. And Donald Trump. Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K., they've been outed by people who endured their nonsense. But do you see what is happening? By naming so many others, attention is drawn away from Trump.

I can pretty well guarantee that anyone who is over age 21 has probably offended someone else in their lifetime. They may have been drunk, have been foolish, have been head-over-heels in a one-way love affair, and crossed a boundary they shouldn't have. If it involved anyone with a hint of a "name" today, all of that is proceeding to be tossed into the mix, and I suspect as long as most of these names being thrown out there are liberal, Democratic, popular names, Trump and his ilk couldn't be happier. Remember how Richard Scaife (the late unlamented hater millionaire from Arkansas) helped Kenneth Starr pull Paula Jones into the public eye at the eleventh hour, resulting in the impeachment of Bill Clinton? He got his comeuppance - he was impeached. He was a player. End of that story. But Trump is going to pull all of that out of the history books, to try to nullify the rape and assault charges that are pending against Trump himself.

Stop clicking on every silly headline and keep your attention focused on the true criminal here - the fool who by hook and by crook ended up in the White House. Who is continuing to bend, break, and change what he can to benefit himself and his rich friends. (Today we hear that he lifted a ban on elephant trophies being brought in from Africa - so Donny Jr. and Eric can bring home their big game souvenirs.) His tax attempt will benefit no one but the very rich, and take insurance away from millions in the process. The fox is plundering the hen house big time.
