Instead of fretting about being dealt a bad hand, the president’s reelection campaign is trying to weaponize impeachment to boost its messaging and fundraising.

"In their view, Trump — like Kavanaugh — is merely the victim of a smear campaign: guilty of nothing and targeted only because of ideology and politics." Disingenuous framing by the author in an otherwise reasonably neutral article. Why use the word "merely"? Because it implies they are denying a larger truth. Why use the word "victim"? Because it implies the target is reacting emotionally. Why claim they say "guilty of nothing" when only specific allegations are unproven? Because it is an absurd straw man.

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" is a bad movie and a miserable finale that serves no purpose other than to reassure fans of the original "Star Wars" that they are still the "chosen ones" of the pop culture galaxy.

"We’re dealing with [Carrie Fisher's] deleted scenes from the previous Star Wars movie being awkwardly inserted, not unlike Raymond Burr’s Godzilla footage, into this new movie." Withering

Brittany Tomlinson, the mastermind behind the kombucha tasting meme, tells TIME about getting fired, her fame and her future in comedy.

"She earned a [Texas A&M] communications degree... But like many of her post-grad peers, she accepted whatever work she could find... working in a call center left her on the brink of depression." Another pampered millenial with a useless degree complaining about having to work for a living... just like the rest of us. Next she will demand that we pay off her student loans.

Without key witnesses and with Republicans holding firm in support of President Trump, Speaker Pelosi should hold off on impeachment for the moment.

"Don't you dare finish that sentence, or I'll send you to a chamber. And it won't be the chamber of commerce!" Hitlerious!

"That U.S. Special Forces had killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State movement, could be considered positive news for the president, some Democratic voters conceded in interviews, except that Mr. Trump presented the news in such an unpleasant way." Are you serious? This is why trump is winning.

Michelle Obama criticized the United States while speaking abroad, stating the country is "still not where we need to be" on race.

"...we moved in, white folks moved out... and they left communities in shambles." So you moved in, someone else moved out and now the place is a shithole. And you blame the person who moved away.

President Trump is looking into giving a free trip to San Francisco, New Orleans or other great American cities to tens of thousands of refugees from Central

"[Trump's] tweets offend more voters than they attract."

NOTE: You said his tweets "offend" voters, but not "repel" them. Polls are showing that a lot of people who are offended by Trump will vote for him anyway. They like what he has accomplished. They don't care so much about being offended.

Hundreds of readers from across the country, espousing views from every point on the spectrum, wrote in to offer their experiences of division. The underlying message is clear: America has a problem, and it's time for a wake-up call.

"Eve recounted a dinner party [with] her closest girlfriend... "my husband begged her to change the subject." Eve's husband ended the conversation and cut off all interaction with her friend."

What a controlling asshole. Not surprised to see this behavior rewarded.
