    Democrats show class while republicans show crass. Perfect example of the political divide.

      @Ellen Peba Do you know every single conservative and every single doctor or midwife in the world?

    • @Ellen Peba hello again independently wealthy, landlady, math wiz, with mba (or is it jd? Or undergrad?) Private sector employee. I just wanted to tell you that my father was a conservative who was pro-choice, both of his parents as well. My gynecologist is pro-choice…and he’s a doctor. I’m 99% sure he’s a conservative. An ob/gyn that i know socially is pro- choice (that’s a MD, too). I know he’s conservative. My brother-in-law has a phd, does that count? He studies infectious diseases so close to an md. But i don’t know your parameters. Anywho, he’s a pro-choice fiscal conservative…does that count? Actually, now that i think about it, i know a lot of people who would define themselves by those two terms. Many are medical professionals (because of where i live and work). You know, I’ve found them everywhere I’ve lived. I guess you don’t get out much with all your studies/jobs/wealth spending but there are all kinds of people who have all kind of views out there. There are even conservative politicians who believe in a women’s right to choose. They don’t usually come to the “it’s a sin unless it’s me” baby-parts cook out or the dead-ish-fetus toss but they will occasionally show face at the just-the-tip-i-promise baby head bocce ball tournament.
      Maybe you don’t really know as much as you think you know.

    • @Hermeneutic mendicancy I’m talking ONLY about American Conservative doctors. American Conservatives are unique.

    Republican men are wholly incapable of restraining themselves from verbally, physically, and sexually abusing women.

    It’s OK. He can always get a job at Fox News.

  4. Jack-booted thugs detaining peaceful protesters. A characteristic of every 3rd world dictatorship.

    • @Jp Phil, now please whine some more. I find people like you whining very enjoyable.

    • Thomas Perry | July 23, 2020 at 6:38 PM | Reply

      Jp Phil Nah I just find that bored people with zero substance usually want to be obnoxious asshats, and it doesn’t take a mind reader to identify someone like that almost immediately

    • @Thomas Perry its a deep thread I agree, only a few can possibly grasp the intellect written here.

    • Thomas Perry | July 23, 2020 at 6:54 PM | Reply

      Jp Phil well you’ve definitely got the “obnoxious asshat” aspect I mentioned earlier nailed down

    The girl is constant fire. She’ll be a great POTUS before the decade is over.

    • @Ellen Peba Its embarrassing that you post such a foolish and cretinous thing.
      You are clearly ignorant of political ideas.
      It’s dangerous that you are allowed to vote in such a state of educational ignorance

    • @paul walker Jesus Loves you, paul ♥

    • @Ellen Peba So sadly not only are you ill-informed about politics but you have an invisible fairy tale fantasy friend. Please stop embarrassing yourself on this thread!

    The Yahoo denies it despite the fact that a reporter heard it. Selective memory, no doubt.

    • Trump is the way of the walk

    • @Mary Thomas Just like the Coronavirus, right?

      @Mary Thomas narcissistic tendency “never happened”

    • Jocelyn Russell | July 23, 2020 at 4:12 PM | Reply

      As I heard it he denies saying it DIRECTLY to her, instead he says he said it as he was walking away (but still in ear shot) as if the fact that he did not say it DIRECTLY to her face was some how excusatory.
      The man is a pig and actually saying it as he walked away but still in ear shot makes it even worse as that ALSO makes him a coward.

    • No, just a sick lying little stain.

    AOC is an inspiration! Her intelligence, courage and strength makes weak men attack her because they are afraid of her! I Love her!

    Brilliantly said, respect comes from the top..But when you have a President that thinks it’s ok to disrespect, women & people that know what they are talking about. When you have a President braking the Law, what else should we expect from he’s cronies….

    Well do you have to understand too if it was good enough for everybody else when the president said that and nobody did anything about it then it’s okay fair game for the rest of them to talk really bad about females it starts from the top and the top right now stinks!!

    Oh what a good Christian Republican man this Yoho is

  11. Women are 52% of the US population.
    Only 8% of republicans in congress are women. And that’s rounding up!
    Way to represent there! 😆😅😂

      @Eli Dicken Not even close. Do those American flags represent how many you burned this year?

    • Rick James5678 no, but we did see to the flags and monuments to the racist defeated traitorous Red Hat heroes come down across the US and even in the EU.

      And you helped bring it about.


    • Dave Schultz and she loves all the attention the frightened whiteys give her…talk about clowned.

    Ted Yoho is a bully and a coward. AOC is about 5’4” and weighs about 120 lbs. I’m 6’4” and weigh 260 solid pounds. I’ll bet he wouldn’t come up to me and talk like that. Any Congressman who has so little respect for the office he and his colleagues hold, shouldn’t hold the office.

      Right on, brother.

    • Tessmage Tessera | July 23, 2020 at 8:17 PM | Reply

      Attacking AOC was suicide. Everyone who has ever done anything like this ended up being destroyed in the end. She’s practically a rock star at this point. Yoho just hung himself.

      @Tessmage Tessera You think they would learn…not to mess with her.

    • Scott Walker | July 24, 2020 at 3:14 AM | Reply

      @Tessmage Tessera Hi Tessmage. I don’t know why but your line about Yoho hanging himself made me laugh. Not that I wish him anything bad, because stupidity is it’s own punishment.

    • Scott Walker | July 24, 2020 at 3:20 AM | Reply

      @James Brudnick Hi James. Thankfully, I read today that he won’t be running again. More trash to the curb.

  15. Republican family values.

  16. It’s no surprise deplorable Ted Yoho said it, especially when we have Access Hollywood creeps like Donald Trump in the White House.

      @Tessmage Tessera , She said illegals detained were told to drink toilet water. That was lie, she knew it was.

      @Dave Schultz Except that it wasn’t a lie.

    • D-ave Schultz is just one of many paid Russian trolls. Don’t reply to them directly, supposedly that’s how they get paid… but don’t feed trolls regardless, lol.

      Accountable for what? Foul language? With all the domestic terrorism going on this is small potatoes.
