    That sound you are hearing is money being suck up to the top. After this is all over, guess you will be holding the crap end of the stick. The same thing happens with the economical crash of '08' politicians rushing in to help the donors and left the rest of us hanging

    Please, let's vote them back in, psst, that include your boy or girl who sat and watch this happen without a word said.

    They're trying a little too hard here to tie things to Trump.

    The deal is, there were a LOT of big companies who were NEVER the intended recipients of these loans and ALL got money early.....not because of any tie with Trump, but because they were big companies easy for banks to approve applications for with no risk. Wells Fargo blew through their allotment in like 5 days doing just that- giving out max $10mil loans to companies that should never have been allowed to apply.

    The wording in the bill itself should have prevented it, but instead there was no annual revenue max in the bill, just a number of employees per location max.

    Some of this came up a couple months back when the first round of money first ran dry when companies like the Shake Shack returned the $10mil they got, then a few others followed suit....and the media lapped it up like 'how nice of them to return it'.....no, why the hell did they even APPLY for a SMALL BUSINESS LOAN?

    Among those returning money back then? The frigging Los Angeles Lakers returned the $4.7mil they got.

    I'm not siding with the man, but I don't know it's fair to put THIS particular thing on 'Trump donors'

    His donors just happen to be included into the bill. They are all in on it.

    well what I mean is...there'd be a lot of NON-donors included as well.....and that a campaign donation isn't likely a part of them getting a loan

    These loans were approved by local banks thru the SBA and I highly doubt banks had a list of donors to put at the top of their approval lists.

    I guess Bubba Wallace is a liar then.

    "relieved that the investigation revealed that this wasn't what we feared it was."

    even if it was a noose, how is the context entirely racist when a noose was used for hanging beyond black people. it was a method used for execution in the past.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanging

    Hanging is the suspension of a person by a noose or ligature around the neck.[1] The Oxford English Dictionary states that hanging in this sense is "specifically to put to death by suspension by the neck", though it formerly also referred to crucifixion and death by impalement in which the body would remain "hanging". Hanging has been a common method of capital punishment since medieval times, and is the primary execution method in numerous countries and regions.

    Bubba saying the right thing doesn't make him a liar for saying it. He was told it wasn't what he feared it was...what he feared it was was a racist event pointed at him in this time frame............when it was more likely a racist event pointed at blacks in general months ago

    a noose is certainly not a gesture of friendship to anybody

    ....you're still not getting the fact that while whites have been hung over the years, a noose is FAR more tied to what was done to blacks over the years......I don't need a damn definition of what a hanging is for gawd's sake

    again, symbolism

    a noose itself based on context though history is not entirely racist.

    where the evidence that it was intended as anything racist? there should have to be evidence beyond the alleged noose itself.

    I give up...........what the hell does it really even MATTER if it's racist or not then?! It ain't a good luck charm. It wasn't put there as a sign of welcome. It's a symbol of hate and whether YOU want to choose to think racist or not doesn't change the fact that at the VERY least, it's a symbol of hate...you get that much at least, yes?

    Touch the subject again and I'll just keep responding with pictures of Jim Carrey doing stupid things until you stop.

    Wonder if it was more likely two other workers or drivers thought it was a funny joke behind Bubba’s back. That’s probably more likely.

    A noose is found in the only black driver's garage in a sport that is proudly Southern and Confederate.

    No you're right we shouldn't rush to judgement...

    I mean why do you guys even bother responding to him?

    problem is, the FBI supposedly proved it was there last fall...so who knows if it was directed at anyone in particular...these guys don't know what garage they're going to have until they get there

    Yep, my guess is that someone thought it was cute and no one noticed or were too cute to do anything about it.

    Lol of course (excluding you being very open to calling Bubba a liar when dancing around and providing ever defense for when Trump lies as not lying) racist Special brings up (via Wiki lmao) that hey! White people have been hanged too so therefor racists hanging black people for being black can’t be racist!

    Again, this speaks to your complete lack of education to American history and racial issues. For some reason you fetishize only the white supremacist highlights of a country you have no ties to and know embarrassingly little about (hey guys the claim that Trump > Lincoln might not be that far fetched because who actually knows or cares about Lincoln in 2020 was your fav take of mine lately).

    If you can’t understand the racist connotations and history between black peoples, noises, and America, and your first response is to cry for “no no what bout white peoples” full stop.

    You’re a disgusting racist ghoul and it’s absolutely sad that your mind is this warped.
