    At some point someone will decide whether (1) any president is above the law and (2) if so, what will prevent future presidents from breaking any law...

    He is cartoonishly shooting the guns out of their hands, like he is The Lone Ranger. This is hardly him "shooting" Mark Kelly and Dem leaders. People are such crybabies now.

    being a big giant crybaby about losing elections, "cancel culture", immigrants, black people voting, vaccines, bathrooms, books that mention gay people is literally the defining identity of Republicans these days.

    I mean that's literally it in terms of the whole thread - that's the "state of the Republican Party"

    Seriously, the bar for crybaby has been broken over Trump and Co's fat knee and then he ate the pieces.

    Seriously... but remember, he didn't vote for or support trump, or so he said, he is a "libertarian'"!

    So true. It's no surprise when they just follow the example of that impeached crybaby they suck up to. I think this guy defines Trump pretty well.

    He is "cartoonishly" shooting at someone who is only in office because his congresswoman wife was shot at by a crazy guy with a gun. Someone whose wife still to this day has difficulties seeing, speaking and moving.

    Ever since trumpism took over the republican party the concept of right and wrong has completely left. No surprise you defend it and attempt to excuse it by blaming people who still find things like this offensive. Hopefully Arizona republicans don't support Lamon in their primary and he gets returned the garbage can where he belongs. But if he does succeed to run against Kelly that Arizona voters have the sense and integrity to reelect Kelly.

    If you ever watch the tv show cops before there is a lot of scenes where the person is busted and they start saying all kinds of crazy stuff.

    Neither actually. I call out the ridiculous overreactions wherever I see them. Show me someone pearl clutching about a Dem ad, and I will say they are being silly crybabies too. No one can watch that video and seriously say it is depicting violence. Anyone who makes that claim would be driven to gibbering insanity if they ever watched literally any western.
    Not at someone, shooting the guns out of their hands. Cartoonishly, meaning in such an unbelievable and over the top manner that one would expect to see it in a cartoon. It is not a depiction of violence. I couldn't name 5 policies of Kelly or this guy, and I don't live in Arizona. The only thing I am commenting on is the outsized reaction to a very tame video.
    If he was actually shooting them, I would agree with you that it is in very bad taste. He isn't.
    I don't care about Trump or the Republican party. I am confused about how people get through a real day with real problems if they can't handle a video that would have been considered suitable for children in the 1950s.
    Correct.
