A round up of Trumpian events 🖕🍊🤡

That’s the problem with being constantly gaslighted by the political establishment… at some point, you no longer trust ANYTHING they say and you begin to believe that everything is a lie or trick.


#1128

There are just too many rabbit holes for Media Orgs to explore…


based in part on:
How the Trump Organization’s Foreign Business Ties Could Upend U.S. National Security

I dunno, but a recent Onion article seems fitting (because, of course it does…)

Baku is a seething pit of corruption and it’s the only place , so far, that I have seen chandeliers hanging from underneath highway overpasses. When you get out of the airport there the first thing you smell is oil. Pure unadulterated oil. It’s omnipresent like hookers in the hotels there.

It is not a far stretch to make that money laundering was / is going on there.

And guess what? The common language is Russian.

First Betsy DeVos likens HBCUs to being about “choice”, and now Ben Carson likens slavery to immigration. What the fuck is wrong with these people?


#1133

Is this a legal action or a term paper??? And yes, the grammar police need to be rung up stat.

I mean… was he trying to talk about the coffin ships that brought over Irish migrants/refugees post-famine?

Because they got here and thrived, and became white pretty quickly and easily. By the 1860s, the Irish were an economic and political force in places like NYC and MA. They went from a bad, colonial, attempted genocide situation to a much better one, with more opportunities. That was not the case for Africans brought over in slave ships.

I mean, he’s not an idiot, so there’s that.

I haven’t been especially impressed by Huntsman since 2012, though. And endorsing Trump was a real low point.

You know, for all of the complaining I’ve been doing about Trump, I opened up my retirement savings statement today, and it gained like 5% in the last month. He might be ruining the country, but he’s doing wonders for my 401k.

That seems in line with what the GOP has been doing the last six years. If it needing fixing, they could have fixed it, had that been what they really wanted.


#1141

I think they were planning to complain about it for another 4 years, not to have to do anything about it.


#1142

#1143

The court is bigly biased, and none of them are Americans. Not fair!


#1144

Oh, we are gonna get bombed now.


#1145

That’s ok. Just think of all the inner city youth that he’ll employ in the armed forces with his increased military spending.
