What is your favorite Annette Bening movie, and why?
The American President playing the feisty Sydney Ellen Wade. How you fall in love with a girl who can make the powerful man in the world fall for his knees. Her performance really was excellent and this is a woman with substance.
Do you plan on watching the Livestream 10 act play of the Mueller Report on Monday night, starring a host of anti-Trump stars, including Alyssa Milano, Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, John Lithgow, and many more?
I read volume one and volume two and kept both separately on tabs on my computer so I could pull them up at will when writing on Quora and needing to double-check the pages certain items were written on. I thought the bulk of the Mueller report was a total waste of taxpayer money and noted that in volume two, page 8 and page 182 contained the exact, duplicate, same, identical words, and (again IMO) most of the declarative statements were qualified by the constant use of words like possible, possibly, unknown motive, maybe, might have, could have, etc., turning those declarative statements into simple opinions without sufficient evidence to merit a straight forward statement.
