yea, she's definitely a baggage carrier of damaged goods but still...
as an aside, I really REALLY, REALLY hope that this is how #45 is carried out when he is finally arrested.
They should grab him by the p****.

2 buses, 1100 migrants. That's a really huge bus!

Tulsi ruined it. I'd still smash it though.

I'm torn on the whole WikiLeaks thing. I know they helped Trump but they also exposed a lot of lies we are told by our government, sadly most people didn't give a crap.

They exposed nothing. They were a middle men. What people had hoped was a noble endeavor turned into a selective release of information that benefited actors who paid to have their information not released or have enemy information released. wikileaks is nothing but a paid shill operation to the highest bidder. f*** assange. f*** wikileaks.

It also drives me nuts when people mention assange in the same breath as Snowden. They're nothing alike. Every move assange made/makes was motivated by politics, money, or compensation in other forms such as residency. Snowden was motivated by what he felt was a tyrannical government who was committing crimes against its people.

It just seems to me that most people seemed pretty supportive of Assange until the issue with Hillary's emails popped up and then he was public enemy number one.

Some became more aware of the person he is during the 2016 election. Him being a shill has been know for quite a while.

There's a real difference between a guy who blows the whistle (e.g., Snowden) and a guy who holds a press conference to announce he has a whistle, then releases a different picture of the whistle every day for a few days, and then tries to cooperate with one side of an election to try to blow the whistle in measured bursts to drown out the other side of the election. Hypothetically.
