Former Daily Show feature subject, fetus food Oklahoma Senator arrested for child (male) prostitution.

He's the guy who introduced a bill to ban the use of fetuses in food. He also was the original political coordinator for Trump's Oklahoma operations.

Apparently the day after he hung out with a young boy in a Super 8 motel room, he hung out with Donald Trump, Jr.

I've almost gotten into a barfight with this guy because I accidentally bumped him (didn't know who it was) and he wouldn't let it go.

I dunno. I feel like there used to be a good bit of discourse and the people who were not engaged were, for the most part, quiet about everything. Heck, maybe they didn't even vote. People were also okay with reaching across the aisle so long as the appearance was that shit was getting done.

Now, it feels like people are proud of not caring about the other side and if you sign off on anything proposed by the other team, you are O-U-T.

There is still reasonable discourse for those who like to consume it. There's just more noise.

I think the 2004 election, for example, was just as contentious as last year's. And Kerry similarly struggled to have a concise 15 word message that showed the virtue of his campaign.

I am confused about something with respect to Trump's tax return. I do not mean this as a political question, and certainly not as partisan. My recollection is that after one of the campaigns there was the allegation that Trump may have paid no taxes in some years. Again, my recollection is that Trump did not particular dispute that. I do not recall anyone-Trump surrogates, media, a CPA in Idaho-saying that of course he didn't pay nothing because of the AMT. I am puzzled as to why noone called BS on the claim that he could have paid no taxes. Unless I am wrong about how the AMT works, there must be a couple of million people who knew that it was wrong. Even if 90% of them had partisan or strategic reasons to keep the info to themselves, that still leaves a lot of people who could have said "Uh, guys, you're wrong."

I don't know man, he's self employed and owns all these corporations. Paying nothing one year wouldn't surprise me, and paying 38 million one year doesn't surprise me.

yes pretty much. i help self-employed guys calculate their annual income for child support purposes, and i always ask the court to aggregate the last five years of returns rather than cherry picking one year for just this reason.

it's not a "work" in so much as it's real, none of the other pages would be interesting. The bottom line stuff is all on those first 2 pages. It is a work in so much as it's probably the year he paid the most taxes he ever paid and that was the one they allowed to leak out.

Agreed with everything else though. Maddow played herself.
