    Eddie Rispone was never a loyal Party member. In fact, Trump never liked him at all. Now he is just a blurry spot in the video next to Trump. https://www.politico.com/news/2019/11/17/trump-suffers-louisiana-loss-071300

    I think your description of both season 4 Veronica and Carol Danvers as somehow male characters played by an actress just shows that you have bought into really limiting stereotypes regarding male versus female characteristics. The idea that being a cocky hotshot is somehow a male things seems laughable to me. I am an attorney and most my colleagues are cocky hotshot women, none of whom become flustered, panic, or cry when upset. There is nothing wrong with those tendencies, but they are not somehow more feminine than those of us who have always been tough fighters and found the only characters we can ever identify with (until recently) are male because writers think women are a certain way. Women are individuals. Many women do use drugs, enhoy strippers and casual sex. Many men do not. I 100% like your point about the ways in which men are dangerous to women. I am a domestic violence attorney and have lived those truths. And as a result of repeated traumas, many women do become like Veronica in that we can't let our guard down or set down our anger and have to relearn how to be gentle and open to others. I really identified with season 1 Veronica as a young adult and as a 40 year old I really identify with season 4 Veronica. And I totally fantasize about being able to respond like Carol Danvers when some jerk tells me to smile. It's pure power fantasy. Obviously, it would never be safe for me to (over)react like that in real life, but if I had super powers, nobody is ever telling me to smile again.

    Things are looking up for Trump this week. I mean, what are the chances he'll have another judgement for a cool 2 million for "misappropriating" charity money to his own self from the veterans it was supposed to go to again. Almost nil. No lie there. The press is afraid to say how unlikely that is to happen again. Such bias. They won't admit when things are getting better for him.

    "Press secretary says it is ‘dangerous for the country’ to question whether she is putting out honest info" https://www.rawstory.com/2019/11/press-secretary-says-it-is-dangerous-for-the-country-to-question-whether-she-is-putting-out-honest-info/ I guess that's the problem with an administration constructed on lies; Any lie is as good as any other. I'm going with "The President is lying in a puddle of his own indignity" until proof of life emerges.
