Michael Bidwill goes on conservative radio to talk up Trump’s court pick

As President Trump continues to blast the NFL over its national anthem policy and boast that he has helped bring down the league’s television ratings, NFL owners continue to support Trump anyway.

The latest example came this morning on conservative radio host Mike Broomhead’s show, where Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill appeared this morning to talk up Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.

Bidwill, who has known Kavanaugh since they went to prep school together, said he’s eager to see Kavanaugh confirmed.

“I’ve known Brett since I was 16 years old. We were high school football teammates. We’ve grown up in life together,” Bidwill said. “People are saying stick to sports? You know what? We ask our players 20 days a year — game days — to restrict their statements. The rest of the days, we want our players to get engaged in the community.”

Bidwill attempted to portray his advocacy of Kavanaugh as non-political, but Bidwill obviously knew going in that he’d have a friendly interviewer in Broomhead, a Trump supporter who said before the interview that criticism of Bidwill getting involved in politics is “idiocy.” At a time when Trump’s top priority is getting his Court pick confirmed, Bidwill is rallying support — not just support for Kavanaugh, but support for a president who has never missed an opportunity to bash the NFL.

  1. “As President Trump continues to blast the NFL over its national anthem policy”

    Nobody’s ‘blasting’ but you PFT.
    Training camps are about to start.
    How about a little football talk?

  2. I’ll grab the popcorn for this comment section. It’s so nice to see a politically neutral article written on here. /s

  3. Normally, I would advise a businessperson not to get involved in politics as there is no upside, only a downside, but, hey, a man has to stand up for his childhood friend.

  4. Everything about the NFL vs Trump dynamic is an example hypocrisy. Trump supporters will ALWAYS make excuses for his behavior and policies. Owners will continue to be concerned with their bottom line. Just the way it is!! Owners say “keep politics out of football”, but then go on the record and publicly declare support for a candidate. It’s hypocrisy….unless of course it favors the owners. This isn’t about Right or Left. This is about not having a clear set of rules and guidelines for EVERYONE to follow, while making exceptions for why others shouldn’t

  5. Keep politics out of football, keep politics out of football games, keep politics out of those 20 days a year the team is on TV. All three of those statements have very different meanings.

    Keep politics out of football: we don’t want to hear athletes talk about politics ever.
    Keep politics out of football games: don’t make political statements while the game clock is running.
    Keep politics out of those 20 days a year: political statements during practice and during the week midseason is still fine.

    I really don’t care which one the NFL chooses to enforce, just make it consistent. We’re only debating it because there’s something to debate every time the NFL shows inconsistency in its policies.

  6. “People are saying stick to sports? You know what? We ask our players 20 days a year — game days — to restrict their statements. The rest of the days, we want our players to get engaged in the community.”

    Bidwell totally understands the issue.

    Would be refreshing to see PFT understand the issue some day, hopefully real soon.

  7. Using team media to communicate an endorsement of a SCOTUS nomination?!? you “stick to football” guys HAVE to acknowledge the hypocrisy of that?? Right? Anyone??

    Is conservative radio on the AM dial?

    I think that’s about the only place you can find it?

  9. Bidwill, who has known Kavanaugh since they went to prep school together
    ———————————————————————-
    Tells me all I need to know.
    Trust fund babies.

  10. I support our POWs and think we shouldn’t keep kids in cages, that’s why it’s disappointing to see Bidwill supporting Donald Trump.

  11. Can’t wait till we see at least 3 Democrat Senators vote to confirm him. Then the meltdown will reach its peak. Trump will get one, maybe two more judges before he’s done. Making America great again sure is a lot of fun!

  12. Take away all business ownership away from NFL teams and make them run by the government. There must be 100% transparency and equal rights to all within the organization. Maybe let the LGBT community run it.

  13. I don’t give a hot wet fart about the players personal politics, and that equal opportunity apathy extends to owners.

    I really used to like football a lot more. Can we stop poisoning the well please?

  14. Common denominator in all this…Goodell. Can’t have much faith in league ownership when they still employ this guy. Until he’s gone, fringe fan at best.

  15. Statement of Facts:

    His friend from prep school.

    NFL players compete in a meritocracy. Bidwell was born into wealth and benefited from nepotism.

    Dad invested in the NFL, socialism for billionaires. No matter how bad you do on the field you win and the Cardinals have been one of the NFL’s worst franchises since being acquired by the Budwells.

    Goodell, the son of a US senator, has clamped down on players kneeling but not on an owner openly promoting a president and his SC nominee.

    Those are facts. Feel free to interpret them any way you want. That’s your right.

  16. As a Cards fan I am not mad at Bidwell. I am not a fan of Drumphs pick but Bidwell has the right to back his friend for being picked for SCOTUS. So do not trip when some players decide to enact their own rights.

  17. Wait until Trump gets to nominate his 3rd Supreme Court Justice. That’s why this election was so important. The Trump train doesn’t end after 4 years, or even 8. Trump will have put in place 1/3 of the Supreme Court, setting conservative precedence of America for decades to come. Don’t like it? See if Canada is accepting illegal LGBTQ muslim abortion having gun rights abandoning big government citizens.

    Dont like the Cardinals, but just became a fan of Bidwill. You stand or you leave. It’s that simple. MAGA.”
    _______________________________________________________________________

    No, it’s not that simple! Especially when people willfully choose (out of bias and/or ignorance) to ignore the real (not the right-wing-manufactured) reason for kneeling in the first place! he America you want to make great again

  19. And if a player went on a radio show and advocated for a Supreme Court nominee, there should be no problem with that either. Now, if Bidwill decided to have Brett Kavanaugh bobblehead day at the Cardinals’ home opener, that might be closer to kneeling during the national anthem to make a political point.

  20. Beautiful that owners can say and do what they want, but a player dares to use his platform and we want him to stick to football. My lack of NFL viewership is directly related to Trump. I hate how they allowed him to hijack the message #IMWITHKAP #KNEELFORFREESPEECH

  21. I’m left wondering how this will effect the play of the Cardinals on the field. Otherwise, this just looks like another lame attempt by the lefties who run this site to bash Trump. It’s getting old…..right now, the Sporting News is looking like a solid alternative.

    You and your peers conveniently forget that the America you want to make great again was an America where there was no connection between football and the flag (It would pay for you to remember (and admit) that one has absolutely nothing (ZERO) to do with the other.), where people were committed to equality and allowed to make their own decisions, and where everyone was entitled to their own opinion without punishment or derision.

  24. Traitor under federal investigation picking a swing vote from a judge who wrote that presidents can’t be jailed.

    Congrats trumpkins. You changed a democracy that soldiers died for (you know those that you cry for when real patriots kneel?) into a dictatorship.

    The owner hired the player to do his job. Protesting is something i disagree with as a fan. Therefore I am turned off from the product. Owners don’t want fans turned off of the product. Nobody ever said the player cant protest – they just cant do it at work where paying customers are disgusted by it. It is so weird why this is so hard to understand by so many on the left.

    So much #winning!

    I’m not tired of it are you?

    🙂

  30. I don’t see a problem with this… he’s friends with the guy since high school and he’s just talking as a human being on a radio show. He didn’t say he endorses Kavanaugh on behalf of the entire Arizona Cardinals organization. And I think he is fair when he says that players are allowed to do the same thing, but just keep it outside of game days. It shouldn’t be that difficult for players to speak their minds or protest or whatever else they want to do.

  31. It’s scary the number of people who can’t see that this is completely different than players protesting the anthem.

    Nobody has ever said players had no right to say or do whatever they want on their own time. It’s only on gameday that it’s not allowed. It’s real simple.

    If Bidwell starts selling MAGA hats at the stadium and decorates in Trump banners, only then would it be the same as players protesting on gameday.

    I honestly have no idea how people can’t grasp this simple concept.

  32. another rich old white power hungry conservative trying to hold his power over women and every one else who doesn’t look just like him. it’s all good, he and his time’s coming.

  33. SO WHAT?! There is nothing wrong with even players going anywhere they want on their time to talk about politics. Though apparently, anyone who doesn’t think like the media socially or politically, is always in the wrong….

  34. Can’t wait till we see at least 3 Democrat Senators vote to confirm him. Then the meltdown will reach its peak. Trump will get one, maybe two more judges before he’s done. Making America White again sure is a lot of fun!

    58‘

    It’s become apparent the Republicans are coming out of the racist closet and donning their white robes with the pointy hats. Silver spoon elitist cowards claiming to be Patriots……please.

  35. I am still waiting for all those suitcases to get packed for those moving to other “Socialist Paradises” that the Left keeps raving about. To put it simply, the system is in place, has been since it’s inception. Either change it through the proper channels, or go ahead and leave, making life easier to cope elsewhere.

  36. How strange that all the hard working salt of the earth NFL fans side with the prep school educated elite children of elite parents rather than NFL players who majority went to public school and weren’t born with anything.

  37. Elections have consequences!
    — Barack Obama

    Sounds like lefties best heed the advice from their hero.

    🙂

  38. Bidwell is a bad dude. Waits for his players to have an incident so he can low ball their money. He should tell the truth more…he didn’t want Larry Fitzgerald or Kurt Warner!

  39. “We ask our players 20 days a year — game days — to restrict their statements. The rest of the days, we want our players to get engaged in the community.”

    That was quite a statement. Because really the only noise we wind up hearing is about how those 20 days are supposed to be some sort of first amendment issue. I have long since had the impression that the only thing the players are truly upset about is those 20 days. Only a few had taken the step of engaging outside like he suggests. (On that issue I mean, a lot have engaged in local things for schools, local charities, etc.. and good for them)

  40. Like socialism, far left fringe SJW leftism also has no place in American society. Never has. Never will.

    The Democratic party best heed that advice and return to the mainstream center if they ever want control of the White House again.

  41. Why in the world is this a story? Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long, and other liberals can go on CNN or bash Trump anywhere, but the owner of the Cardinals can’t have a political opinion? No one said players can’t have political opinions outside of football and express them. But fans are not paying to see political protests on Sundays at their job. Can you launch political protests at your place of employment? PFT is so slanted left it is absurd.

  42. I expect whining and fake “the sky is falling” sentiment from the Hollywood types. But a football blog — I’d like to think is run by genuine people who have common sense. I would be wrong.

  43. As a big supporter of Trump I have to be consistent on keeping politics out of the sport, so I cannot condone Mr Bidwill well meaning comments on upcoming judicial nominees. No politics, Mr Bidwill. The same standard as for the players who kneel. No politics

    People wishing and hoping that at some point a witness turns and gives them grounds to start having Trump under investigation is very different from Trump actually being under any investigation. They have even explicitly stated he is not. Yes, I know that could change some day, but as of yet it has not. Its only a wish.

  45. All we need now is for Trump to replace that ancient relic Ginsburg, and the “progressive” movement will be well on its way to the scrap heap of history where it belongs.

  46. That’s a completely fair stance to take – regardless of your position on the flag or Trump.

    Game days – 20 days per year – just stick to the script for our fans to keep it non-political. The other 336 days you can advocate for whatever position/cause you want.

  47. No one is saying players can’t talk to reporters before or after the game or go on talk radio.

    They’re saying, don’t kneel for the anthem.

    Florio and PFT take that and think owners shouldn’t have something on their website or go on talk radio.

    The two aren’t the same, and it’s a bit dishonest to say so.

    This is common sense, but agendas stuff.

    ———————————
    I wouldnt consider this interview to be “bringing it into the sport”. Its more of the protesting during game day – during the honoring of Americas flag – our symbol of unity. The only reason this is bringing it into the sport is PFT has a bias to make it part of the sport. Otherwise, this is basically non sport article. No other sports sites report on it.

    Sorry but this presidency is going to have a big back lash. After the treason charges come out and the economy crashes because of the tariffs (just look at the 1920s if you need an example) the GOP will be struggling to get elected anywhere but the south (which has to borrow money from the rest of the country because of their lack of progress).

  50. You people seem to forget it was a Republican/Veteran (Nate Boyer) who suggested that Kap kneel as a sign of RESPECT….which is what eternal do next to a fallen soldier. I wonder why you never see or hear any vitriol spilled toward Nate? We all know why. No need to say it. #hypocrisy

  51. Maybe I missed it, but I think this started as being about kneeling for the Anthem. However you feel about that, it’s a singular issue. I don’t think any football player has had their speech stifled…they’ve turned down invitations to the Whitehouse, spoken out about how evil and vile Trump is (as well as the entire cast of ESPN) and it goes on and will continue to. God Bless America. Whether you want to admit it or not, a rather large segment of the population is offended by disrespecting the flag and the Anthem. Owners have decided it’s bad for business. They own the teams. So you stand for the Anthem. If I were a a jerk and a pig who decided to where a nazi armband to work, I guarantee I’d be sent home at the very least…it’s common sense for business, and it wouldn’t be an infringement on my speech. This guy’s allowed to go on a radio show and talk up his crone. He’s not doing it at his job.

  52. Trump is a complete buffoon that would cry worse than Neymar if anyone told him to his fat face. However, I DO agree w/Bidwell about one thing- it SHOULD be about sports on Sunday, not some song that has NOTHING to do with sports. (guessing he missed that bit of irony– as idiots often do)

  53. Wait until Trump gets to nominate his 3rd Supreme Court Justice. That’s why this election was so important. The Trump train doesn’t end after 4 years, or even 8. Trump will have put in place 1/3 of the Supreme Court, setting conservative precedence of America for decades to come. Don’t like it?

    on the supreme court that is. progressive states will continue their progress. most of the conservative social policies will be in red states. the gap in rights between blue states and red states will only get wider.

  54. Using team media to communicate an endorsement of a SCOTUS nomination?!? you “stick to football” guys HAVE to acknowledge the hypocrisy of that?? Right? Anyone??

    nope…it’s typical move the goal line practice which happens on a daily basis.

  56. All we need now is for Trump to replace that ancient relic Ginsburg, and the “progressive” movement will be well on its way to the scrap heap of history where it belongs.

    And what will follow will be Germany of the 1930’ s which will warm your little racist heart. Pretty soon you are going to see a whites only NFL ….I bet you would love that.

  57. If any one of us posting here ( regardless of political affiliation ) were to have their own high school teammate running for Supreme Court Justice, we would have no problem lauding that person to the highest degree possible. For those who have no friends, please reserve your comments for an actual issue of relative consequence. Judge Kavanaugh will make a great Supreme Court representative, and he should be confirmed quickly and decisively.

  58. I guess pro football talk doesn’t believe an owner can express his beliefs unless it fits pro football talks criteria.

  59. Why can’t the other side be fair on this? If you don’t want players making statements lets not have the league make one as well. Stop promoting this war as a fight for our freedom because it isn’t. Just play football and leave the politics out.

  60. There’s a big big difference between what owners of a business can do with their business and what they allow their employees to do with it, and rightfully so. Employees have no equity in the business and therefore no right to insist on what they can or cannot do. Their recourse? This is America, they can start their own business and run it any way they choose, just like Mr. Bidwill

  64. The Cardinals are a bumbling franchise with a terrible record over the long term mitigated by a couple of decent players over the years. The Bidwills are in the same category of incompetence as Dan Snyder, Jimmy Haslam and Woody Johnson. Sad!

    No – I am against inner city youth on youth / black on black / whatever you want to call it crime. I cant believe we have men and women brave enough that would prefer to try to keep our nation safe in those urban gang lands, rather than grab some cushy office job. I dont blame our nations police for always being on their toes. They have one scary job – there are some dangerous criminals illegally armed in the streets. But lets ignore the root of the problem which is the inner city gang violence and blame the cops. Great idea.

  67. Just like how you libs never miss an opportunity to bash Trump,? Mr Smith

    I guess you don’t get it? I mean most people don’t like liars, con men and women abusers, but I guess he is your hero….you need to grow a pair….of course you need a sense of ethics and morality first.

  68. Trump supporters continue to reinforce the fact that most of the intelligent, educated people in this country are liberals.

  69. Art – unlike the hypocrite right, I’m an American first who is “wishing” that our pres isn’t in Russia’s pocket. Until he is cleared, anyone supporting his right to pack the SCOTUS with judges who will free him no matter the outcome are traitors as far as I’m concerned. All real Americans should be favoring a “freeze” until this russia thing is concluded. I hate trump but I hope he’s cleared!! Why? America before party. Remember?

  70. hagemeisterpark920 – Ok if you look like a “inner city youth on youth / black on black / whatever you want to call it crime” perpetrator, then use any force necessary. Makes sense.

  71. No – I am against inner city youth on youth / black on black / whatever you want to call it crime.

But lets ignore the root of the problem which is the inner city gang violence and blame the cops. Great idea.

    Have you ever thought about how the black inner city got the way it is now? No you haven’t preferring to place blame on one side….the blacks. While I never had to face what inner city kids have had to face, the drugs, guns, and lack of parental supervision and lack of role models. So come down off your high throne and start talking to some of these kids and you will learn that they lack any hope knowing that people like you look at them like animals…you know like the immigrants Don the Con hates. So put yourself in their shoes…if they have any and what would you do to survive……they are still people.

    —————————-

    I hate to break it to you but “educated” and “indoctrinated” are two different things.

    And liberals are not more intelligent, just more emotional.

  73. People read all the comments in the past where the comments here state that the players should not protest during the anthem before a game.
    People read the comments here that the players can (and should) use other forums and wonder why they don’t use them. Those other forums are ESPN, CNN, Late Night Talk Shows. Heck any gathering of players where they simply stated “hey we have something to say” would get coverage.
    So people have read hear that the people who don’t want the players expressing their politics are saying they don’t want the politics expressed during “game time.” NOT they don’t want the players expressing their politics at all.

    Its disingenuous to claim being OK with Bidwell’s statement is contradictory to not wanting the players to bring politics to game day. I don’t believe the Cardinals had a game today.

  74. So I can see those who disrespect our country and its flag and PFT has no problem. But his? Oh no..an American citizen had an opinion on a SCOTUS pick. Is this opinion hurting our nation or disrespecting law enforcement or our military? No so keep quiet and stop with thIS stuff.

  75. Your liberal panties are in a wad today. Can we please try to keep PFT about football and zero about politics. If I wanted liberal opinions I’d watch CNN or MSNBC. Or conversely FOX to get conservative opinions. That’s why I don’t watch or subscribe to any of them.

  76. Brett Kavanaugh after being nominated: “No President has even consulted more widely or talked to more people from more backgrounds to seek input for a Supreme Court nominee.”

    FACT CHECK: Trump chose names off a list given to him by a special interest group, then he interviewed only four candidates in under two hours last Monday.

    So Kavanaugh’s first official statement was a lie.

  77. I hate to break it to you but “educated” and “indoctrinated” are two different things.

    So come down off your high throne and start talking to some of these kids.
    —————————-
    BINGO! You nailed it. If these anthem protests have acheived anything, its that they have split up our country into 2. Instead of bringing it together. The protests aren’t working. They are doing the opposite. So get in the streets and speak with the kids. These players need to be in force and do everything that you just said if their goal is to help the cause. Because to me it looks like they are just protesting that they don’t like who won the POTUS election.

  79. Looking forward to January 2021 when we won’t have to read any more of this garbage about Trump. Maybe sooner if Mueller does his job well.

  80. “Because to me it looks like they are just protesting that they don’t like who won the POTUS election.”

    The protests began months before the election and though they claimed it was about the anthem, for many, it was just about Donald Trump. Once the election were over, the protests almost immediately died down. Now they continue but it’s mostly all about hatred of Trump and not wanting him to somehow look like he won the issue.

  81. Liberal hate machine really goes after any conservative who dares speak thier mind. How dare they not following the lines bestowed on them by liberal Democrat plantations owners. How dare they.

    All we need now is for Trump to replace that ancient relic Ginsburg, and the “progressive” movement will be well on its way to the scrap heap of history where it belongs

    ———————

    Sorry but this presidency is going to have a big back lash. After the treason charges come out and the economy crashes because of the tariffs (just look at the 1920s if you need an example) the GOP will be struggling to get elected anywhere but the south (which has to borrow money from the rest of the country because of their lack of progress).

    ————————-
    So if no treason charges come out? Because so far there is zip, nothing. Even after all this investigation and keaning on guys to turn tec it still sits at a fat zero. Keep in mind your hopes and wishies are not charges. If you are thinking to give one of those “well there is gonna be” retorts stop first and realize that simply underscores my point that right now there isnt.

    And despite the predictions of a crashing economy I have heard since inauguration day its doing better so that crash is looking less likely every day. I have quite a few freinds that were in dire straights by rlection day and since then have had opportunities appear to bail themselves out.

    And what if the other investigation produces treason charges on the democratic side? Are we to thow an entire party in the bucket and become a one party system? That would be really bad. It would be worse for the country than whatever the treason was. The fact is Democrats and the Republicans need each other. Their opposition does create strength for America as long as they can get their focus on what the real goal is supposed to be here and not this current contest of seeking was for destroying each other.

  85. Very disappointed in MB’s overt political hypocrisy… Demonstrates an unfortunate level of Juvenile behavior. What’s more, it also will begin the deterioration of what has been the evolution of an admired franchise. Why?

    What type of effect will this all this negativity have on the locker room morale? Or a potential star player considering joining the team with inferred racist overtones? Or fans who now will feel diminished or disrespected because the owner is allied with an obvious negative, hateful, bitter, and divisive child level of consciousness? Example:

    As a player of color who has recently had their Constitutional rights deprived (kneeling), and now one who might have a Wife, Daughter, Mother, Sister, etc. about to have their constitutional rights deprived as well (hence; Roe vs. Wade, not to mention many other current Misogynist behaviors), who will want to play for Arizona??? How do the current players “honestly” feel about this? (Not that they could share given the repercussions they would endure). Can we see Josh Rosen sharing his outspoken thoughts?

    I understand Mr. Bidwells support of a friend… But to make it organizational wide is a huge mistake for not only the team, but for the NFL as a collective.

    May you be Blessed Michael.🙏

    Beautiful that owners can say and do what they want, but a player dares to use his platform and we want him to stick to football. My lack of NFL viewership is directly related to Trump. I hate how they allowed him to hijack the message #IMWITHKAP #KNEELFORFREESPEECH

    I’m sure you don’t get it, but thanks for making my point.

  89. Unbelievable that liberals think their positions are logical. They can’t even grasp the basic problem people have with the protesters. Namely, the time and place.

    Maybe this analogy will help.

    Let’s say a player was caught urinating in the bushes at the stadium. The owner fines him. People then protest claiming the owner is taking away his right to relieve himself.

    Days later, a reporter sees Bidwell in a public bathroom at a urinal. HYPOCRISY! Bidwell is free to relieve himself while his players have to hold it in!

    Yes, that’s how ridiculous people sound who say people against the protests are trying to silence players from ever talking. It’s just time and place people. I weep for our future that so many can’t follow that.

    Congrats trumpkins. You changed a democracy that soldiers died for (you know those that you cry for when real patriots kneel?) into a dictatorship.

    The United States isn’t a Democracy. It’s a Constitutional Republic. Do some homework and you’ll realize why the founders made it that way so it would never become a dictatorship. The second amendment is the lynchpin for the entire idea.

    No – I am against inner city youth on youth / black on black / whatever you want to call it crime. I cant believe we have men and women brave enough that would prefer to try to keep our nation safe in those urban gang lands, rather than grab some cushy office job. I dont blame our nations police for always being on their toes. They have one scary job – there are some dangerous criminals illegally armed in the streets. But lets ignore the root of the problem which is the inner city gang violence and blame the cops. Great idea.

    Have you ever thought about how the black inner city got the way it is now? No you haven’t preferring to place blame on one side….the blacks. While I never had to face what inner city kids have had to face, the drugs, guns, and lack of parental supervision and lack of role models. So come down off your high throne and start talking to some of these kids and you will learn that they lack any hope knowing that people like you look at them like animals…you know like the immigrants Don the Con hates. So put yourself in their shoes…if they have any and what would you do to survive……they are still people.

    ———-

    You are correct. The breakdown of the family has caused the worst harm here. With 70% of black kids having only one parent in their life (usually their mom) they are at a huge disadvantage from the beginning. Combine that with crappy schools and easy access to drugs and there is little question why so many young black men turn to crime. It really is a national disaster. So what is the solution?

    Art – unlike the hypocrite right, I’m an American first who is “wishing” that our pres isn’t in Russia’s pocket. Until he is cleared, anyone supporting his right to pack the SCOTUS with judges who will free him no matter the outcome are traitors as far as I’m concerned. All real Americans should be favoring a “freeze” until this russia thing is concluded. I hate trump but I hope he’s cleared!! Why? America before party. Remember?

    ————————
    The left wallows in every bit as much hypocrisy as the right ever dreamed if. Since they are currently on the outs and having a fit over it the left is actually a greater source these days. But I am not going to deny the the right did their share when the show was in the other foot.

    As far as ‘until hes cleared’ thats ludicrous. So far hes not even charged so there is nothing to clear. So far there is nothing but a bunch of accusations from agenda driven opponents that all of this investigating and witness turning at taxpayer expense has turned up no basis for. The lack of anything being found is explained by his opponents as “that just means they need to keep looking indefinately until whenever they find something”. But such a justification is exactly what an presumption of guilt without basis is. (Its also something fair to call a witch hunt) No matter how sure a person might be that a basis will be found if they keep looking, the fact remains they dont have a basis currently for the presumption of guilt they are doing anyhow. But they dont care about lack of basis. What they really want is for there to be a constant attempt in play to find a way to change the result of an election they lack the maturity to accept. Your claim is like if I accused you of bank robbery and until someone proved you never robbed a bank you were not considered cleared, and some how if even after you got completely checked out with no evidence found someone still said you were not cleared because they think someone should kerp looking.

  97. Shame on all non-leftists, right? How dare anyone stand on the way of turning the USA into the SSA (socialist states of America). How can anyone seriously think we need for leftist agenda and policy in this country? As far as the anti Trump rhetoric from the left, keep pushing and you’ll have Trump in the oval office until January of 2025. Not to.mention the complete destruction of the democratic party.

  98. As with any good investigations it starts from the bottom and moves up. There have been several indictments and plea deals already. Just because Trump hasn’t been charged yet doesn’t mean there’s nothing there.

    Wait until Trump gets to nominate his 3rd Supreme Court Justice. That’s why this election was so important. The Trump train doesn’t end after 4 years, or even 8. Trump will have put in place 1/3 of the Supreme Court, setting conservative precedence of America for decades to come. Don’t like it? See if Canada is accepting illegal LGBTQ muslim abortion having gun rights abandoning big government citizens.

    on the supreme court that is. progressive states will continue their progress. most of the conservative social policies will be in red states. the gap in rights between blue states and red states will only get wider.

    In California you are now unable to buy a gun made after 2013. Rights? In California Conservative speech is described as hate speech and must be dealt with By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) a Progressive movement out of the Bay area.

    So in the largest State of our Republic, taking away your political opponents rights seem to be the calling card of the left.

How many more trump jr. “I love It” emails do you need? How many more trump/putin one on one with nobody present meetings do you need?

    If obama did a fingernail’s worth of this stuff, your team would be out with the pitchforks. All the reasonable left is asking is for time to let mueller finish. Is our democracy worth it to you? After all, soldiers died for it. The same ones you think kap is desecrating.

    The hannity brainwashing of your team is frightening. You already got one loon fighting me on calling our country a democracy. Jeez. You guys can’t even agree with us on that one?? Really?

    For one…we need to stop blaming cops on the root of the problem. I know there are more cops putting time into neighborhood improvement than nfl players. Alot of these inner city police are patroling their own stomping grounds. A place most nfl players are too scared to be at.

    As for the solution…its right there. Everybody is putting their efforts into blaming politicians and police. But if all those efforts went into basic family values…we would have a start. But nothing is happening at the ground level with the families. I know plenty of people raised excellent by single parents.

  109. What about the rest of Trump’s base that I mentioned. Care to enumerate them too? Throw in misogynists too.

  110. “People are saying stick to sports? You know what? We ask our players 20 days a year — game days — to restrict their statements. The rest of the days, we want our players to get engaged in the community.”

    Come on, that’s a damn lie.

    The owners want their players to restrict their statements 365 days a year and not to be involved in anything that has less then 90% support.

    That’s all the Dems have left. Calling people racist and everything else. Sad really. I hope you keep it up because it will assure you’ll never win the Presidency again. It’s all just noise to most people now.

  112. Trump sure likes attacking businesses with his harebrained tax increases (also known as tariffs), elimination of popular tax deductions, and attacks on their entire workforce. Anyone else notice that the Chamber of Commerce hates all of the above?

    Not surprised to see that this nationalistic dictator behavior comes from a guy who bankrupted countless casinos. The house always wins, unless you’re Trump.

  113. Trump’s biggest achievement is getting duped by North Korea and saluting NK generals. At least he has normal people telling him what to think 1/3rd of the time.
