Conservatives Endorsing Joe Biden

Submitted by Robin Messing on Mon, 10/05/2020 - 5:37am

Donald Trump's Presidency has been so disastrous that the unthinkable has happened. Many Republicans and former Republicans are speaking out against Trump and endorsing Joe Biden. A few of these Republicans were even former officials in the Trump Administration. Here is a listing of some of them along with quotes and videos explaining why they are so determined to prevent Trump from gaining a second term.

So Trump Pays Almost No Taxes Because He's Got a Great Accountant. What's the Big Deal?

Submitted by Robin Messing on Wed, 09/30/2020 - 4:44pm

The New York Times broke a HUGE story on Trump’s taxes a few days ago. In 2016 and 2017 Trump only paid $750 in taxes and he paid $0 in taxes in 10 of the previous 15 years. I’ve seen more than a few commentators say, “So he’s got a great accountant. If he is smart enough to get his tax bill down that low, good for him.” Here is my response based on the following two stories.

Your Pre-2016 Election Support For Donald Trump: Get Tough On Russia!

 

Donald Trump was riling up the crowd at a rally in August 2016 over the possibility that Hillary Clinton would appoint Supreme Court Justices who would take away their Second Amendment rights. He stepped over the line when he made a statement that some may interpret as a call for assassinating Clinton or the Supreme Court Justices. "If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know." Even if you argue that no sane person would interpret this as a call for assassination, not all of Trump's many millions of followers are sane.

During the second Presidential debate on October 9, 2016, Trump told Hillary Clinton that he was going to have his attorney general appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s emails and throw her in jail. For a President to announce he was going to have his political opponent investigated and thrown in jail is unprecedented. It is the stuff of banana republics.

These statements prompted me to write a column for my blog about two weeks before the 2016 election entitled "Donald Trump Is An Existential Threat To American Democracy." None of Trump’s pre-election statements seemed to alarm you too much, Congressman Reed. You just smiled to yourself and said, “Donald Trump—he’s my kind of guy.” You had endorsed Donald Trump well before he made these statements, but even after he made them you worked so hard to get him elected that he appointed you to be a vice-chair of his transition team

Evidence: Trump Supporters Are Idiots

Trump supporters think that liberals look down on them and think they're stupid. I can't speak for any other liberal. I can only speak for myself. But as for me,

 

HELL, YEAH! GUILTY AS CHARGED!!!

 

In fact, I have the following graphic as my pinned tweet. Click on the tweet and you should see a link near the bottom of the tweet saying "Show this thread". Click that link and you will see a thread of about a dozen tweets containing links backing each point and then some that I made in the graphic.

When he was campaigning for President in 2016 Donald Trump said repeatedly that he would hire “the best people” for his Administration. Take a look at this video. 

 

 

The Importance of Wearing Masks

Submitted by Robin Messing on Tue, 06/09/2020 - 3:17pm

This article is aimed primarily at Trump supporters. Those who do not support Trump are already wearing masks. It is ridiculous that mask wearing has become a politicized issue, but here we are. Donald Trump doesn't wear a mask. (Update: 7/19/2020: Trump has now warn a mask at least once. But he seems to wear masks rarely and reluctantly.) So why should you?

Have you ever noticed two of the reasons that those against wearing masks to stop the spread of Covid-19 give for not wearing masks are:

What is a Trumpanzee?

Submitted by Robin Messing on Mon, 05/04/2020 - 3:51pm

Definition: Trumpanzee--a hard core worshiper in the Cult of Donald Trump.

Derivation: A portmanteau of "Trump" and "Chimpanzee". Arises from the fact that Trump is making monkeys of his followers, but they are too stupid to realize it. All right, all right. I know chimpanzees are apes and not monkeys. It's called poetic liscense. Deal with it!

Synonym: MAGA Moron

How To Know If You Are A Trumpanzee: If you think that injecting disinfectants to cure Covid-19 is worthy of spending our valuable resources investigating, then you are a Trumpanzee. If you think separating children from their parents and throwing them in concentration camps under inhumane conditions are acceptable, then you are a Trumpanzee. If you are cool with having an Administration lawyer argue that it isn't necessary for children to have soap, bedding, or toothbrushes for their conditions to be considered "safe and sanitary", then you are a Trumpanzee. If you think Donald Trump is a very stable genius after being a five-time gold medal winner of the Stupidity Olympics, you are a Trumpanzee. You might be a Trumpanzee even if you don't believe these things, but if you do believe them then congratulations! You are a bona fide, certified 100% Trumpanzee purebred.
