The "crap on Trump" thread



  • @kjayhawks Evil are the people saying not to wear masks, and trying to force kids back to school while this virus is surging. Tell me, are the people doing that Democrats or Republicans? I want those people gone.



  • @approxinfinity I know Democrats refusing to wear masks. Is Biden evil if touching and more than likely sexually assaulting women? Is the Clinton foundation evil for stealing donations or selling uranium to Russia? What about wanting to do away with constitutional rights? Both sides are equally evil, not to mention Trump has Zero control as to when we go back to school. It’s rednecks vs Nazis at this point. I could write a book on the evils of the Democrat party just in my lifetime.



  • Trump squeaks it out at best. No landslide possible. Biden is closing in on a sure victory. One swing state and Biden wins. Potential for Trump to lose in embarrassing fashion.

    Just the way the polls look. Not my opinion in any way. It looks like the most Trump could get is 316. His margin for error is tiny. Biden has the potential to 378 with current polls the way they look.

    Trump has taken a nosedive in the polls. He will need a repeat of 2016 to win. And I just don’t think he has that same momentum. People HATED Clinton. I don’t think there is the same hate for Biden…



  • @Kcmatt7 what did the polls show in 2016???

    I said he’d need a repeat of 2016 in my post.

    Last part:

  • @Kcmatt7 I said it to be a smart ass lol. We all have our opinions. I won’t comment further with you or @approxinfinity on the matter.

    Biden has enough skeletons in his closet and is going up against someone that will ruthlessly exploit those skeletons when campaign season starts. Plus Biden still has to make through debates with Trump as well and since he isn’t very eloquent either, debate season could be a gold mine of outrageous sound bites from both Trump and Biden. This is the year for the Libertarian and Green Parties to open up their wallets to promote their candidates strongly and try to get them included in the debates this fall.

    Sure. A long ways to go.

    But as of today it still looks like Trumps margin for error is razor thin. It was razor thin 4 years ago and he pulled it off.

    I don’t agree on the third party this year. I did 4 years ago (voted Johnson myself).

    I don’t mean that a 3rd party would win this year, but with the outright disgust so people have with both mainstream parties right now, this is the year for a 3rd party to push to get invited to the debates and increase their profile to start giving themselves a better chance in the future. If the Libertarian or Green Parties don’t take advantage of the situation being laid out in front of them this year, they may never get a better chance to break into the main stream and become real players in state and national level elections.

    can we get a 4th party ?



  • This could challenge (and likely upset) some of our libertarian posters.

    The link in the tweet is a long read but definitely thought provoking.

    Cool, guess we ought to copy China by checks notes locking up problematic minorities, deporting all but the ethnic majority, canceling elections, and nationalizing all the major corporations…?

    I did appreciate the handwaving that praised German and Japanese nationalism in the early 20th century but then skipped right to Chinese modernization without mentioning WWII and how the US rebuilt Europe, making the European social democracy thing even remotely viable. Like I get the US isn’t perfect, but at least we’re trying to get better. The Chinese government is actively becoming more authoritarian and making no bones about it.

    He’s not even trying to hide his disdain for the liberal experiment or anything approaching human rights, like freedom of speech. State capacity quickly turns to nationalism (with the possible exception of Korea, but DPRK didn’t exactly miss the boat there) and to me, nationalism is just a fancy word for bigotry. Like, I have zero desire to live in Singapore, one of the countries that best dealt with COVID. Why? You can be caned for the absolutely horrific crimes of… umm… overstaying your visa or doing drugs.

    I just don’t believe for a second that liberalism is worth giving up, like the author suggests. I very much enjoy my freedom to call the President a racist asshole on boards such as this with nobody telling me I can’t. He may be right in that there’s tension between state capacity and individual freedom, and in that case, I’ll take the latter every time in building a country.



  • Every day this drags on and gets worse I get angrier at Trump. What a piece of shit.

    I’m having a bad day, for someone who has it pretty good. I know there are many people really struggling. ♥



  • I enjoy the idea here: https://defeatbytweet.org/



  • Listened to The Daily today and they reran an episode from mid March that I remember listening to then. They interviewed a doctor in Italy who explained that 30000 people had tested positive and 2000 had died. 20 had died at his hospital that day. He explained how visitors weren’t allowed and people were dying alone. How they decided who would get the limited beds : younger patients getting priority on beds because the old likely would not survive. I remember my sadness then. It was a disaster. Now look at us.

    Last week that Italian doctor’s hospital had zero Covid patients, and they had a moment of silence for the dead, and a round of applause for the survivors. He was knighted for his efforts. They overcame.

    We’ve done nothing. We squandered the warnings. We’ve fought with the scientists. We’ve reopened when we shouldn’t, neglected to wear masks when we should. We’ve got teenagers running around on the beaches without a care, a deathtoll piling up, and politicians who want to open our schools in the middle of this.

    What plane of hell is the United States in right now? Is Donald Trump an idiotic Antichrist?



  • @approxinfinity u should hear this press conference. He’s gone off the deep end! It’s all about Biden’s speech from earlier today. Complete breakdown from it. He’s breaking it down.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I mean Jesus Christ. I didn’t watch a single episode of The Apprentice because I had zero interest in listening to a soulless idiot wield power over people less privileged than he. Little did I know that half this country would some day want to subject us ALL to his despotic lunacy. Come on people! Learn to judge character! Or, if you realized what he was and voted for him anyway, please let’s come to an agreement now that he’s not fit to be President and that we’ll never again vote for someone so stupid and selfish.



  • To me this is basically right. Trump isn’t really conservative in any meaningful way. Just plays one on tv. https://twitter.com/cjane87/status/1283148807706992640?s=21



  • @FarmerJayhawk a Manhattan Liberal maybe the best description of trump



  • “We want our country safe. We don’t–unlike Biden, we don’t want to have criminals pouring into our country.” – Trump today

    “After reviewing the development of the spread of COVID-19, Mexico brought up to the United States the extension for another 30 days of restrictions to non-essential land travel along its common border,” – Mexican Ambassador Martha Barcena today.

    Congratulations, Donald Trump, you “secured our borders” by making the United States the epicenter of a global pandemic.

    What the f*** did I just listen to?



  • @Kcmatt7 Fox “news”???



  • Quinnipiac poll… damn near looks fake



  • 142,000 US deaths. Disinterest and apathy from the president to contain the virus. His intent all along was expressed early “the virus will just run through us like a wave” (from memory). 142,000 largely preventable deaths. That’s 47.3 times the number of deaths when Osama bin Laden hit the World Trade Center and he was considered the worst kind of terrorist.



  • Waiting for the Nationals opening day game at 7 on ESPN. Why is this no mask wearing piece of shit on the television? Petty B couldn’t stand that the Nats invited Fauci to throw out first pitch.



  • @approxinfinity Trump will probably tweet about the disloyal umps and catchers wearing masks…

    White House personnel and guests get tested upon entry so there’s no reason to wear one on WH grounds if you test negative.





  • @approxinfinity said in The "crap on Trump" thread:

    @FarmerJayhawk sure there is.

    https://www.clinicaloncology.com/COVID-19/Article/07-20/False-Negatives-Found-If-COVID-19-Testing-Done-Too-Soon/58781

    Not to mention consistent modeling for his more confused devotees.

    A mask just won’t help unless Trump himself actually has it. And since he’s tested at least once per day, the odds of that many consecutive false negatives would be pretty low. Presymptomatic spread is also pretty rare since viral loads are low at that point.

    From the stand point of contract Covid, there’s no reason, but it would set an example for everyone who doesn’t believe in wearing them to wear a mask so we can finally start seeing things return to normal. Although those people would probably just call Trump a traitor and hypocrite for wearing one.

    You think so? Is that really possible? There would at least be some lag until Q-Anon disowns him.
