It’s especially startling with this hearing since it’s convened by Robert Mueller, the real parade of horribles real and imaginary.

Not sure the online shouting matches are the best forum for getting to know each other. To be honest, I’m reluctant to take sides, but I have talked with people on both sides in places of business. And I don’t know what the biggest difference is between Trump’s supporters and the chalkers.
“Trump supporters can’t be taken seriously,” one of my neighbor told me, “when we don’t know what we are talking about.”
