@bobsal u1553115,
we can hope for better leadership.(Id actually take the veep since he IS , at least willing to take direction from our experts) Mr Sunkist has shown us his level of "leadership" and its been found bankrupt.(If he ever had a smittering of leadership skills)

Boy I wish Obama could run for a third term as a super Constitutional "emergency".
I think Trump is going to have to admit himself into a rehab center after hes through in November (I hope hed have the honor to resign in the interim time twixt his defeat and Biden's inauguration.Pence could probably work with the new team to actually set a much needed strategy and long term plan to deal with the disease and the economic aftermath. Since Biden was more responsible for the 2009 turnaround (Obama was devoting his time to health care) Id think he would want to lad the economic wreckage cleanup, and Pence could help a transition team to work the covid details.

We cant take this do-nothing admin for very much longer, what with such a crazy narcissist brain-dead idiot in the executive. Some of the clowns here are unhinged themselves and are either too stupid to understand or are being "sponsored by foreign interests" to lie for Trump to try to help him get reelected.

@coldjoint,
so you disagree that Trumps entire disastrous handling of this mess is mostly his self-dealing , his inability to lead, and his lying narcissism where he can NEVER take responsibility?

@farmerman,
Ever heard of a term used in the court process, called leading the witness?

Your questions would see you thrown out of a court room, were you in the prosecution, or defense, so what makes you think they're worthy of a response at all, in this venue?

@Builder,
well counselor.
1 Remember?This is NOT a court room, so Your attempted analogy is baseless.(Rules of debate do NOT deny assertion or hypothetical s. (In fact the use of the hypothetical IS admissible in cross examination in court so not only is your analogy baseless, your assertion is incorrect)

2 I do like to hear you guys try to deny the obvious with fuzzy gloves

3 All you seem to do is try to run baseless cover for your ilk.

Trump did a good job. Again, Cuomo.
Trump has done one thing in the early days (jan-March) He did close one port of entry to one country and did nothing else. Since that time and until it became so obvious that he was dead wrong, he either denied, poo poo;d, downplayed, or lied about the pandemic.
ither you hve no hort term memory or youre just trying to keep your handlers pleased with your amnesia

If you consider that to be debate, go to the back of the class, and try listening, and comprehending. Looks like you missed the basics from day one.

Do you need instruction on the difference between a hypothetical postulation, and clearly leading the witness?

The rest of your "post" (I use the term very loosely in describing your narcissism and posturing) isn't worthy of comment.

The following tweet from Sen. Susan Collins:
'The President has not provided the kind of justification for the removal of IG Linick required by this law.'

elicited the following response:
I'm pretty tired, so can we just skip to the part where you don't do anything?'

Seems to me Cuomo had a lot of other things to say about Trump. This is one of the milder ones:

In 1963, John Kenneth Galbraith, the liberal economist and adviser to the Kennedys, mocked the modern conservative for being engaged in “one of man’s oldest, best financed, most applauded, and, on the whole, least successful exercises in moral philosophy. That is, the search for a truly superior moral justification for selfishness.”

I'm sure you recall Jonathan Jeffries. We became good friends when I was living in NYC. Here's his Facebook image...

@farmerman,
You might also point out to the nit wit that when leading a witness the witness is ALWAYS one that is favorable to the lawyer accuses of doing the leading. So his little analogy is screwy. What he refers to as "leading" is more "Socratic method". Its an accepted way of learning and demonstrating thought process.

@lmur,
Susan Collins has concerns. And a pair of white gloves to wear to high tea.
