Iím assuming not only did he gently caress up the test he must of also said some horrifically racist poo poo in the office that made them not want him no matter what.

Like my wifeís cousin failed the asvab by only signing his name and crying on it and he still got a waver to join ( he did take it again later and got some sort of score).

Yeah I've never heard of someone catching a ban for a score. Making sexist or racist remarks to the test administrator, recruiters or meps personnel can catch you a ban though only seen it once though.

This should be a huge scandal but it's not even going to budge the needle at all.

For perspective, in 1972 it was a huge scandal that McGivern's VP pick had electroshock therapy to treat his depression.

Pretty much, Donnie's psychopathic in his shamelessness and it's his political superpower. Enough of a critical mass decided "eh, no big deal" in 2016 and retreated into a knowledge hole that doesn't care about or believe the scandals. It's not that it doesn't get covered, it's that those masses don't care anymore.

Are you gonna start sneaking McGovern facts into every post now like my dad after every time he reads a book on some semi-obscure historical figure?

“We don’t really know where this goes — and I’m not sure we really care.”
That's literally 2 posts in like 5 days, and one of them is just one sentence.

edit: Trump makes past campaign seem quaint with the way he throws himself from one scandal to the next on a nearly daily basis with impunity.

edit 2: and McGovern was a genuinely good human being and I wish we had more people like him in charge of things.

Doubtful that anything will happen, but Donnie's clearly violating his gag order by attacking the judge's wife now.

But what makes it funny instead of depressing - it's because he's retweeting Laura Loomer. So, if he ends up being the first former president to serve jailtime due to violating a gag order, it will be because of loving Laura Loomer.

We demand to be taken seriously

$30 million stolen in LA from a cash storage facility on Easter. Which apparently didnít have any staff on site that day?

quote:

The burglars were able to breach the building as well as the safe where the money was stored, Morales said. Law enforcement sources said the break-in was among the largest burglaries in city history when it comes to cash, and the total surpassed any armored-car heist in the city as well.

Mystery surrounds the break-in.

Sources familiar with the investigation said a burglary crew broke through the roof of the facility to gain access to the vault. But it is unclear how they avoided the alarm system.

In addition, viewing the safe from the outside, it showed no signs of a break-in. The operators of the business, whom police did not identify, did not discover the massive theft until they opened the vault on Monday.
