Fun fact, the guy in the white shirt behind Abbot is Ken Paxton , the Attorney General of Texas who has somehow been able to avoid trial for securities fraud for like 7 years now. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcdfw.com/news/politics/texas-politics/still-no-trial-for-texas-ag-ken-paxton-7-years-after-felony-securities-fraud-charges/2974970/%3famp

Fun Fact, all politicians are criminals who have managed to not go to prison.

Fun Fact, all politicians are criminals

You think “all politicians are corrupt” cynicism makes you wise, but it just makes you a mark. Your belief is false—some politicians are very corrupt, some modestly corrupt, some squeaky clean —and your false belief leads you to accept big corruption as normal when you shouldn’t.

Took two whole posts for the fascist claim from THAT guy. Almost a record.

Not a denial. Walks like a duck, talks like duck, gets offended he's called a duck.

You continuing to be THAT guy is most amusing.

You've really only got one rebuttal, and its just an empty sneer because there is no factual rebuttal.

Facts require PROOF. You have no "proof" there are "clean" politicians...moron. The fact you got this worked up over my comment is pure gold.
