The religious right’s strange, but predictable support of Trump would be laughable were he not the leader of the free world. Trump celebrated the national day of prayer with the acknowledgment he paid a porn star $130,000 hush money a week before the election. The actress, Stormy Daniels, claims their sexual encounter occurred back in 2006 while Trump’s wife was recovering from the birth of their youngest son.
Now, evangelicals such as VP Pence claim that Trump is a man of God, even while he calls African-Americans sons of bitches, supports Neo-Nazis, attacks Hispanics, Gays, women, the disabled, and of course occasionally grabs some passing pussy.
When it comes to the support of Donald Trump, the religious right is neither religious or right. They are however, hypocritical opportunists who will meet get theirs now, in November, and for the rest of their pathetic lives. Cause I may not believe in god, but I know for a fact that Karma is a bitch.
I don’t understand Ted Cruz. Trump mocks his wife, his father, his manhood, and Cruz pens a fawning tribute to the Sociopath and Chief?
I don’t know Ted Cruz, and I don’t wish to. I fear his lack of backbone, integrity, and “manhood” more than I do Trump’s transparent racism, ignorance and greed. Ted Cruz is everything that Trump is not, and if possible, worse. Trump’s disgusting bravado has been challenged by many who don’t have a box to stand on. I applaud their bravery. Cruz?
Ted Cruz is a US Senator, and he should be afraid. Why? Well, we know that Trump likes to “grab” them, and Cruz might be next.
For years, conservatives have railed against the “liberal” agenda, pointing fingers and calling for change. So when it’s revealed that the cluster of conservative Sinclair stations have given their hosts scripts, eg. conservative talking points, I have to laugh.
Liberals don’t need “talking points” because their thoughts and actions are, for the large part, organic and instinctual. The “right” calls us snowflakes and derides us as weak on matters of reproductive rights, immigration and defense, when in fact we are honest and forthright on the complicated, nuanced matters that a democratic republic requires.
The Trump conservative is not only oxymoronic, but lazy and unimaginative. And for the record, I wrote this myself.
The smug Ivy-League smirk is still there, but if you look close enough, you can see the beginnings of a tremble. Tucker Carlson whored himself for a huge FOX paycheck, and in doing so cemented himself to the Trump legacy; an obscenity that seems on the verge of collapse. And along with it all of the other young white boys who chose not to embrace the dreams and hopes of those Americans searching for a decent life, but instead to propagate fear and self-loathing.
When the end comes, I won’t miss you one bit.
Donald Trump has ponied alongside evangelicals for a while now, and they’ve done a good job at holding their noses. But ironically, it wasn’t a dead child in Florida that made them stand up to the idiot at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, it was an elephant.
Trump lifted the Obama sanctions against the poaching of elephants in Africa after Donnie and Eric Trump bitched about not being able to kill more endangered species, and that brought out some unusual responses.
“Please @realDonaldTrump, stick with your good instinct on this. We do NOT want to reward animal poaching. You will alienate independents & conservationists! #RespectAllofGodsEarth” said Laura Ingraham, a critic of gun control when aimed at elephants, but apparently not children. Other conservatives are also criticizing the move.
(Exhale) I don’t know when this nightmare will end, but if Congress and the GOP don’t move soon, another endangered species might find themselves in the crosshairs of the magnificently stupid.
In reference to recent political comments by NBA superstar Lebron James, FOX spokeshole, Laura Ingraham told LeBron to “shut up and dribble.” She really said that. The woman who quizzes “Kid Rock” about his political ambitions has the balls to tell a man who donates millions to charitable organizations, and who currently is funding and supporting projects that help children and families in need, to “shut up?
I’m sure Lebron just smiles. He’s been treated worse by smarter and more sinister right-wing knuckle-draggers. But Laura? Seriously? Stick to interviewing Scott Baio on his thoughts on climate change. Because your latest shot?
The Nunes memo, to be released as early as today, is a political hit job authored by the White House and its closest ally in congress, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. The memo purportedly claims that the FBI illegally investigated Trump aid Carter Page. A cursory Google search on Carter Page quickly reveals his deep, long, and complicated ties with Russian oligarchs, “consultants,” and political operatives — you know, what we used to in a more innocent time call “spies.” Carter Page was actively and successfully recruited by Russian spies long before he served on the Trump campaign. Investigating him and all other attacks on American sovereignty is the FBI’s bread and butter, not a left-wing conspiracy.
This Nunes memo, Trump hopes, is the fire alarm that will create so much chaos that no one will mind as he continues to roll out his slow-motion Saturday Night Massacre. But it won’t work. The American people see right through it.
Melania won’t be joining her marriage-of-convenience husband Donald Trump on his visit to Davos, the Illuminati con-fab held high in the Swiss Alps at some Bond-villain lair. Can you blame her? Would you want to hang out with your spouse days after his torrid affair with a porn star was splashed all over world media? I mean, being married to him is bad enough, but this? There’s a limit, even for Melania.
Sure, her staff assures us there were schedule conflicts. Yeah right. Her presence at Davos has been scheduled forever. She was even slated to give a speech. This is an abrupt about face.
There’s only so much of Trump’s bullshit you can take. I wonder where our limit is.
If Melania wants to spend some quality time with the Donald, she can just read his deranged Tweets like the rest of us.
A turd is a turd, no matter how many times you call it a diamond.
Trump et al are constantly bitching about negative press coverage. But that’s like a dead high wire performer blaming gravity. The President’s 24/7 shit show, shit storm, shit hole…whatever…begs the obvious question; where is something positive that we can report? Let’s go down the list.
Trump’s words, his past, his actions against women, people of color, Muslims, Mexicans and 40 years of questionable business with mobsters and Russians. Pence? Lies about Flynn, Russian contacts. His cabinet? Perry, Pruitt, Devos, Tillerson, Homeland Security…they all have questionable comments, actions, illegalities. It just goes on and on.
I mean, I’m really trying. And you know what? There’s nothing there. The only good Trump news is a forthcoming indictment.
But I’ll keep looking.
Trump’s attack on Haiti and African nations, describing them as shitholes, exposes yet again the president’s deep seeded racism. What really shocked me was Trump saying that we should instead encourage immigration from countries like Norway. He’s not even trying to hide his hate for people of color. (Remember, Trump was fined by Justice back in the late 70’s when he was preventing blacks from renting his properties.) But that’s not the surprise.
I was shocked at FOX news’s Jesse Waters, who defended Trump’s comments.
“This is how the forgotten men and women of America talk at the bar,” Watters told his co-hosts. “If you’re at a bar, and you’re in Wisconsin, and you think they’re bringing in a bunch of Haiti people, or El Salvadorians, or people from Niger, this is how some people talk,” he said.
No Jesse. It’s how ignorant shitholes talk.
