Well I guess CNN is giving pointers on how to keep Trump's administration from even beginning.

I don't care what anyone thinks of Trump...this is not okay at all.
There are enough idiots out there wanting a place in history who would jump at the chance to do this...

CNN hasn't been a news outlet for so long that I've no idea what it's covering; I'm just glad that we don't have tanks rolling in the streets to effect change (that link's there to forestall people from telling me my verb usage is wrong when it isn't).

To what, exactly, are you objecting?

Basically CNN anchors/reporters while on air, were talking about scenarios that could happen tomorrow that would possibly keep the Obama admin in power...the one they spoke directly about was a bomb on the dais that would kill both Trump and Pence...not to mention their wives and children...

That in my opinion is wrong. They know there are crazies out there that are listening. If something happens I feel they should shoulder some of the blame...

o.O

If CNN is doing that, it's beyond the pale. Going full on infotainment is one thing, but what you're talking about is disturbing, indeed. Do you have a link to the video? All I can find is something to do about a discussion of the line of succession.

(This is why I skip news outlets and go straight to Reuters and the like.)

Thanks for linking. It seems like the assertion would be greatly strengthened by a transcript or video footage (the blurb links only to a picture of Blitzer taken from the screen). I wonder why the writer didn't include those things?

In any case, here's hoping that tomorrow is peaceful; no one wants to see violence. Goodnight! :D

Just an FYI...I was rather forcibly told that the site that posted the video/report is highly unreliable. Supposedly extremely racist and a host of other issues. I have never heard of the site and in fact thought it was from CNN itself.
Even then I checked with snopes before sharing...oh well live and learn I guess.

I just wanted to let you know

Oh, thank you for the head's up; I appreciate it. :)

I hope you had a good day. *hugs*

My goal is to make it through tomorrow without (A) sobbing uncontrollably or (B) vomiting. I'm hoping I can get by with just a few sniffles!

It helps me to know that we're having a nonviolent transfer of power even though feelings are running rather violently. If that doesn't help you, remember that it's okay to cry, and if you rub your lower inner arms (try small, firm circles in a downward motion from elbow crook to wrist with your thumbs), it will help you not to vomit.

Considering that he will be in violation of Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution the moment he takes the oath of office, it shouldn't take 6 months. However, getting the GOP in the Senate to vote for impeachment is going to take some doing. They have chosen to totally ignore any thing wrong that he does.

My former stats prof said he expects the inauguration to be like an episode of "The Twilight Zone"... now the opening tune is stuck in my head.

*chases ear worm out of your head*

I won't get to see any of it until Shog *coughs* goes down for his nap; he's just informed me that he intends to take the day off, and he's opposed to watching history unfold. It's just as well; he's become quite shout-y about history. ;)

When does it start? I'll have to go look after my grandmother now. Perhaps I dare take a peak after all when I'm home.

Ah... history... I'm not shouty, just dejected. But gonzo21 made me laugh a couple of days ago: Brexit As Expressed Through The Medium Of 'Aliens' Quotes. Finding humour in the tragedy an all...

I think it started at 11; I've recorded pretty much all news and entertainment news, plus a lot of network coverage. Once Shog takes a nap, I'll watch while I work. I imagine much of it will be rebroadcast tonight.

My middle got chopped: I hope that your grandmother is doing well—and I'll check out that link, thank you!

Have a lovely day, my friend. :D

No need to get his blood pressure up with something that can't be changed for now. Hm... looks like I have to wait for the eight o'clock news here, nobody seems overly interest in the whole thing, so there's nothing on yet.

Thanks for asking – she's physically fine and I'm thankful for small blessings. :)

You too! I sent you a message earlier. :)
