There's a big pile of fail.

House votes to kill Rep. Al Green's resolution to impeach Trump

Quote:
The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to set aside a resolution by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, to introduce article of impeachment against President Trump – the third time the Houston-area lawmaker has taken a shot at impeaching the president, but the first since Democrats regained control of the House.

Lawmakers voted 332-95 to table Green’s resolution, which was widely opposed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other top Democrats worried that the measure would force vulnerable swing-district lawmakers into peril ahead of the 2020 elections. The bipartisan vote shelved any chance of bringing forth articles of impeachment against Trump in the near future.


"The president has committed an impeachable offense," Green said on the House floor earlier on Wednesday. "Yesterday, we condemned him for that. Today is our opportunity to punish him."

137 Democrats voted in favor of tabling the resolution compared to just 95 who voted against shelving it. Only one lawmaker, Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., voted present.

The hypocrisy on the left is thick... and kinda funny.
these congresswomen women this their country and want to make it better. none of them are stupid nor antisemitic. not sure which one you're calling racist, but if I dwell too long in your bs I'll drown.
Trump's just trying to change the subject from his failures and drum up support. he was hoping for an impeachment proceeding to bolster his base but looks like nancy won this one.

I stated that StenY Hoyer agreed that she broke the House rules and then posted a link that stated just that. I't simple comprehension skills that you seem to lack. However we are not going to change that in this forum.

Have a nice day.

Would you mind trying that sentence again, while sober.

Quote:

If you can't figure out that Ilhan Omar is an anti-semite then that may put you in the other category with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib.

Quote:
not sure which one you're calling racist
Now that I've told you what category three of them are in, are you able to figure out the fourth through process of elimination?

Quote:

What failures would those be?

Quote:

Trump has no need for an impeachment proceeding, the fact that Nancy has to keep fighting this stupidity is a win for Trump.

Students say ‘Trump quote’ on immigration is super racist — but are shocked when they discover comments were actually from Obama

Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips turned the tables on a group of students who believed that President Donald Trump issued remarks revealing a controversial stance on immigration.

They were surprised when they found out Trump wasn't the author of the comments.

What are the details?
Philips visited college campuses in order to gauge students' thoughts on an immigration quote he posed as belonging to Trump — except former President Barack Obama actually made the remarks in 2014.

Phillips said, "Donald Trump announced this past week week that he would be urging ICE and other administration authorities to seek out people living here illegally that have broken the law to deport them."

"I have a quote here about the deportation of criminal illegal aliens," he added.

The quote is:

We are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our laws and I believe they must be held accountable. Especially those who may be dangerous. That's why over the last six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent and we're going to keep focusing on threats to our security.
Here are some of the more interesting responses:

"Uhh, I think that policy comes from a place of white American nationalism."
"Donald Trump has embraced this rhetoric of racism and xenophobia — that is not beneficial to our country at all."
"This administration has totally not done anything moral."
"I think that's a bad decision 'cause the United States should be open to immigrants."
Phillips then turned around and told the students, "I'm gonna show you the person that said that quote."
Here's how they responded:

"[Q]uite surprising — I thought it was from Trump."
"I didn't expect it to be Obama."
"It just shows the hypocrisy in politics."
"I don't know a ton about Obama's deportation policies, but I imagine that they were a lot more humane than the ones currently going on."
