I guess he's doing his best to not be woke

Remember that one time Hillary Clinton answered an endless barrage of congressional questions for eleven hours without showing any signs of fatigue?

Apparently, she should've just taken a nap.

She was sustained by eating babies, its an unfair advantage

[-] Got_Bent 48 points 1 month ago

If I remember, the babies were sliced up and used as toppings on a pedo gay pizza.

Pedo gay pizza made in the basement of a building that doesn't have one!

Pineapple on pedo pizzas is the worst.

That is what they want you to think. What better cover for a secret basement then having no basement /s

I heard someone say that his lawyers sedated him so he'd keep his mouth shut.

Given there's suggestions he has Parkinson's or has dementia, it might also be the medication. Something like haldol, even in low doses, will make him sleepy.

TBF he's old. I had trouble staying awake in class when I was in my teens and twenties. No surprise an old man has similar issues during a long day in court.

Perhaps if he hadn't gone around calling his opponent 'sleepy' for years on end, people would have been more charitable and assumed he'd simply slept poorly.

Perhaps if he hadn't committed so many crimes he could be chillin' at home instead of sitting in court all day

Like 10 years before my grandpa died he would just randomly fall asleep doing what ever. It's what old people do. The man is 77.

They should do a permanent version of that, only way to be sure.

They could ask micheal jackson doctor he seem good at that

Jesus gave my kid cancer. It’s all part of god’s masterful plan.

A tornado destroyed my house. It’s all part of god’s masterful plan.

The environment is collapsing and I support the industries and wealthy people telling me profits are more important than life on Earth. It’s all part of god’s masterful plan.

These morons can talk themselves into anything. It’s an abusive relationship. They keep getting beaten up but “He really loves me…”

And apparently it's offensive when you say it's all God's Masterful plan when bad things happen to them.

[-] RememberTheApollo_ 4 points 1 month ago

Of course. They’re the arbiters of their victimhood. It’s also god’s plan when the tornado wipes out you’re neighbors but leaves your house intact.

It's really bizarre and upsetting to see.

Was watching the documentary about the cartel killings of fringe Mormon women and kids in Mexico and it was very upsetting to see them talking about how 'blessed' they were by God that one of the kids that they thought was dead was actually alive after discussing how three mothers and six kids were brutally murdered.

Yeah, praise God indeed.

Organized religion rots people's brains.

Trump supporters:


[-] Daft_ish 26 points 1 month ago

Trump shits his pants in court so that the judge has to smell it! There is no end to his genius!

[-] Everythingispenguins 9 points 1 month ago

He just needs a pair of these

[-] Viking_Hippie 3 points 1 month ago

I love that they felt that they had to point out that they made them see through in case you wake up 😄

[-] Pretzilla 6 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

A lawyer (maybe Glen Kirshner on BTC?) pointed out when observing interrogatees after the cops left the room but the camera was still recording, the guilty ones were always the ones who nodded right off.

It's fight or flight and his brain just flew
