The likelihood that Trump ran numbers is pretty low, but of course everyone understood that piece description.

I was not aware that anyone had suggested that Trump ran numbers. (I.e. an illegal lottery.) Conned a lot of people, yes. Stiffed a lot of small contractors? That, too. But not running numbers. Where did that come from?

It came from the paragraph where Marty called Obama a grifter.

Marty is saying that so long as he makes a figurative aside about Trump, his entire case against Obama can be a lie.

I have a hard time lately understanding what Marty is saying, at least not more specifically than “Democrats suck, especially Obama.”

Godspeed to the impeachment inquiry. Let's get this over and done, send it to the Senate so they can do whatever the hell they are going to do with it, and then move on.

Get the freaking vote out in 2020 and crush the (R)'s like bugs. Trump or no Trump. Kick their @sses. They won't understand anything other than utter humiliating defeat.

Persuadable swing voters are, I think, gonna have to figure all of this out for themselves. Anything I do or say is just gonna be Another Liberal Hating On Trump, so other than here and with a very small circle of friends and family, I just don't talk about it.

Slightly more than half of eligible voters voted in 2016. Get the damned vote out and this problem will right itself.

That is all.

key point: Obama didn't swindle anybody.

other than that: spot on

it seems like what we have here is that the GOP has decide its new rhetorical strategy is: anything anyone has accused Trump of must be turned back on the left [do not bother seeing if it makes sense]. Trump's a grifter? no, Obama is a grifter! Trump is pursuing electoral shenanigans in Ukraine? no, Clinton was!

it explains at least 50% of Nunes' rantings.

how many casinos did Trump bankrupt?

But that was swindling** the investors. Whereas running numbers would swindle the gamblers.

** Although I suppose you could argue that, rather than being swindled, they were just victims of Trump's massive incompetence.

It is a characteristic of Trump that he invariably accuses opponents of his own glaring faults. It’s a reflex.

The party of Trump has slavishly assumed the playground habit.

Imo the degree of that has just increased under Trumpy Gumby but it was already SOP before.

True, but with Trump, it's clearly ingrained from childhood, rather than a strategy.

A pretty perfect example, given Dubya's absurd military swanking when seen in the context of his actual "military" experience.

"silly ride y'all are allowing Marty to take you on."

He passed the audition.

"Obama was a fancy grifter, a top notch long con guy. He is the kind of crook that Leo plays in a movie."

Leo? In blackface? Figures.

Poitier, Jamie, and Denzel not available?

Fancy, was he? Tan suit got yer conservative hernia belt in a twist you wear for all that pro-Trump conservative heavy-lifting you heft round here?

At least Obama could make dem ponies do dose tricks up the asses of the pollution-loving, racist, payday-lending, corrupt, Armenian-murdering, McConnell obstructionist plantation masters you elect:
