Nelson joins the ranks of Waters, Pelosi, Hillary and Chuckie as becoming mentally deranged. A distemper injection would be in order.

Everytime someone is asked to support their claims with established facts we should be glad at this depth of scrutiny. That's why Trump lies all the time, the facts will be his undoing.

The magical thinking and generalized assertions concerning Russian meddling for two years have never once been accompanied by actual examples. This is true from every source of such assertions. Many Democrats have embraced and politicized jingoistic rhetoric including such non-existent assertions, which has always been shown to be damaging to U.S. international relations and has always led to a great number of people being led like ignorant sheep. When Trump makes assertions, he commonly gives examples, or shows where no examples exist for the nonsense he opposes. This final point is precisely why Democrats and their magical thinking hate him. He keeps them off balance and their only defense is to become even more irrational and jingoistic.

There is nothing one can prove to a Trump supporter, as they operate outside of the world of provable facts. The rejection of rational thought and reality-based inquiry is where Trump followers dwell. Living in the Trump universe makes people regress to the mental state of 6 year olds. For all the talk, by his followers, of normalizing Trump’s behavior, it was our normalization of the platforms he thrived on — reality television, cable news, cap-locked Twitter — is what made Trump possible in the first place.

I hope Bill Nelson can supply the proof, for two reasons:

-We need more Democrats in office.
-Rick Scott is a simpleton.

So you, in your infinite knowledge of cut and paste internet/social media philosophy know better than the intelligence agencies. Is that what you are trying to say, fishboy? I suppose it was really a 300 pound orange dude hiding in his bedroom who hacked into the DNC and waged a misinformation war against Democrat voters prior to the 2016 election in order to influence votes? You really are a paid shill, aren't you? Do you get paid in euros, US Dollars or rubles? What is the going rate for social media espionage? C'mon Fishboy, fill us in. We won't tell.lol!

I agree with everything you have posted with one exception. I have never known a six year old to be as greedy, selfish, dishonest, immature, delusional and opinionated as Trumpanzeez and their orange faced messiah..

There are 5 Democrat Senators running for reelection in November, and polling behind their Republican opposition. I can't remember 2, but Donnelly in Indiana. Nelson in Florida, and McCaskill in Missouri are 3 of them. So, if Nelson can't win, may as well blame the Russians. If Democrats weren't so tragic, they would be funny.

The Clinton Crime Family ran a Mueller on Rick Scott and he blew them away, then breezed into 2 terms as governor.

Nelson is a stumbledummy and you bet Scott has him worried.

No surprise he's warming up the Russia excuse

I seem to remember when Republicans were basically decent people with differing views on economics and not a festering fucktangle of racists, Nazis and child molesters. What the hell happened?

I hope Nelson has evidence to back up his claim. Otherwise he will be a pathetic figure like Joe McCarthy who claimed their were Russian sympathetic commies in the State Department but then had no proof.

Nelson has served 18 years in the worst political body this country has ever assembled. His time is up. It's time for almost every sitting senator to start looking for a new job. We need a remake of this dysfunctional body of government. That goes for Casey here in Pa. too.
