Based off the title, I thought this was going to be about Puerto Rico.

Princess Woof Woof

I appreciate how understanding she is of the mindset of Duterte's supporters. As tired as I am of hearing their excuses for every horrible thing he does, they are simply frustrated with the years of corruption the country experiences from all levels of the government, from every single president we've ever had, down to the clerks at government offices. Duterte was able to create a tangible change. Gov't offices started working faster. Traffic enforcers mostly stopped preying on drivers for bribes. Unfortunately, that's all his supporters are willing to see.

"horrified" probably more like bad PR and went to distance himself as much as possible, only $$$ matters

This story makes me so angry. Not just at the rapist but the total utter incompetence of American police departments and their absurd bias towards women stemming from a male dominated work culture. Fire those cops, fire them all and parade their abysmal record all over the internet so no one will ever forget what they did and will never hire them again. I want their kids to be reminded of what their father did every time they go up on the internet and be ashamed of being related to him for the rest of their life.

Thanks for finally raising awareness to what's going on in brazil. Please keep doing it, please go through all the scandals and what was revealed in the recent leaks of public prosecutors and judges messages. The Intercept BR lead by Glen Greenwald is doing an amazing job along with others unveiling one of the biggest corruption scandals in our judiciary.

It's like yelling "but Hillary" because you can't defend him. The bottom line is that you can't defend him.

The Real Skynny Podcast

this Podcast is yet another example of the Liberal Democrats & their BULLSHIT! THE SQUAD by the way are racist & they've proven it. if you are white, straight, Jewish, Republican or conservative or even a man, they openly hate you, but amazingly none of you say anything about that! If you can't see where you are wrong folks then you are certainly part of the problem & ya'll can't say you're not racist if you only ever condone them & further drive the division. Omar is a hateful racist person & we don't need that in Congress period!!!!

Unlike some people who claim to be conservatives, I'm not going to apologize for what Trump said. I don't agree with what he said, but am I supposed to seriously believe democrats are seriously offended with what Trump said when "The Squad" has made anti-semitic statements, threatened, and called the president a mother-f-er? The democrats, instead of condemning anti-semitism and Omar, write up a ridiculous statement condemning all "discrimination". Or that time leaders in North Carolina came out as having dive racist acts and democrats did nothing. Spare me your fake outrage. Again, I don't condone what Trump said, but those who apologize for all Republicans or conservatives, you're weak minded snowflakes and have the memory of a goldfish.

I'm so hurt over this. I want to apologize to people of color for how they've been treated and how they must be feeling. And I want the rest of the world to know that we don't all support Trump. Such scary times! I am overwhelmed and sad and feeling hopeless.

I can't help but feel that this is the end for us. For the US, anyway.

I used to like this show a lot but over time it has lost its ability to bring up interesting topics. Whenever listening the only thing that i hear is the electric toothbrush ad. I think this podcast has become a better advertiser for the toothbrush than a good discussion platform.
