    CNN up front and screaming to the world: "Toot! Toot! Trump had consensual sex with women! Hear ye! Hear ye! Trump had consensual sex with women! Ding! Ding! Ding! Trump had consensual sex with women! Look over here! Look over here! OOGA! OOGA! TRUMP HAD CONSENSUAL SEX WITH WOMEN! IT'S AN OUTRAGE!
    CNN not up front and whispering to each other:: Psst! Never say a word about Slick Willie raping women and having not really sex that's a sex act with an intern while the enabling Evil Hag put down bimbo eruptions.

      Q: What kind of a man would have an affair with a porn star?

      A: A lucky one?

      I mean we're not talking about Monica Lewinsky here.

        That's funny. And remember, Clinton wasn't impeached because he had sex with an intern, it was because he lied about it.

          And, given that he didn't come close to a conviction in the Senate and that it's generally considered to have cost the Republicans support, I think it's been established that it wasn't an impeachable offense.

          While technically, the House can impeach for any reason they feel like, there is an expectation of a significantly serious offense.

            So the POTUS can use his power to have sex with a subordinate and he gets a free pass but if a Hollywood director does it he's a pervert and should be a leper for life.
            Both of them are scum and should be prosecuted in court. Politicians, and the POTUS is no exception, should be held to the same standard of law as everyone else.
            Put them in the same windowless cell and throw away the key (assuming there is evidence to convict.)

              In neither case is it illegal as long as it's consensual. They are both scum. In a corporate environment it may well be against corporate policy and grounds for termination.

              The legal status of a president with respect to crimes committed is dubious. If he got angry at a visitor, whipped out a pistol and shot them in front of witnesses, I'm not sure that he could be arrested. He certainly has the ability to pardon himself.

              Overturning the election of a president by the people is a very serious issue. In general, the courts have deferred to the electorate. In Clinton's case the electorate decided it was acceptable.

                In an imaginary country where leaders have ethics, the leader would resign in shame. (Nixon did.)

                  Nixon resigned because the House Judiciary committee voted out an article of impeachment. It was certain to pass. Senator Goldwater told Nixon that he had only about 15 votes he could count on in the Senate only about half of what he would have needed to avoid conviction and removal from office.

                  He resigned instead.

      LOL... the funny thing about them doing that... I think it would be more shocking if he "didn't" have sex with porn stars. That's kind of what you would expect and was factored into casting a vote. Hey! the stock market is up 40% in a year and unemployment is lower than practically ever - but he had sex with a porn star!! (answer from everyone in the US: "So? Was she hot?")

    Please note this comment is from me a President Trump supporter.
    Yup and just like President Trump calling Putin congratulating and acknowledging his election results. Obama did the same thing almost word for word of Trumps call in 2012.

    As a side note breaking news from the left Some of Trumps advisors have ties to the steel industry.

    It simply shows the indoctrinating nature of the enemy left in this uncivil war.
    Their point Capitalism/ business. Bad

    The left ignores and adores
    Obama and his advisors who are tied to the largest criminal enterprises in the 21st century - the Clintons and the fraudulent Foundation. Then throw in the Muslim Brotherhood to add to the web.

      Of course. I posted the same thing on the WSJ which has become a prog rag. It is inundated by leftist trolls to the extent that you have to take a shower after dipping into the comments.

      Having said that, FB is only providing an outlet for people's urge to be part of something that they think is missing from their lives. They think they attain a higher status if they see their names there, to the extent of spilling beans that later come back and bite them

    I dont even listen to liberals any more. They just dream up things to slam Trump and its a waste of time to pay attention to them. Trump is definitely thought of as an enemy of the liberals. He definitely is to a degree, but isnt really a consistent libertarian even.

    He wanted to repeal and replace Obamacare, instead of simply repealing it.

    That's also the thing I find incredibly hypocritical - that the media are decrying Trump's use of exactly the same data Obama used from the same company!

    What I am pleased to see is that Facebook is taking it in the shorts for facilitating it and selling their customer's info without telling them.

    Discovered the same thing; but isn't that how the meme goes these days...like all other things thought to be good, in the hands of another become bad.
    It's Bizarro world my friend.

    While it is interesting that whatever either "side" is doing the anti-side is against it. The media is very socialistic and is observable by their antics. However this does not prove that Trump is in any way objectivist. He is a socialist with a different theory than the one the media would like to see implemented.

      I see president Trump as more of a Crony Capitalist. This kind of Capitalism is self destructive.

        Crony capitalist is a different way of saying a socialist capitalist who wants the state to control the economy to his benefit, which all socialists want some think they are different because they want a different arrangement for the state to control the market.

    I do not get why it's scandal either. Facebook's stated business plan is to provide a forum for people to interact and then to sell that information to those who want to reach out to specific groups. FB did that successfully.

    There was something unethical and maybe illegal about the way campaign misrepresented it as academic research, but it's not a major scandal. Are people who see it as a major scandal saying if the campaign had only paid full price to reach those people it would have be fine?
