A round up of Trumpian events ๐Ÿ–•๐ŸŠ๐Ÿคก


#1954

โ€œThe slaves that picked the cotton that went into that whole cloth were well-fed and had decent lodgings!โ€
- Some disgraced ex-Fox News personality


#1955

โ€œI mean, really, shouldnโ€™t those slaves have been paying the plantation owner for all the amenities? Bunch of freeloaders, if you ask me!โ€

  • Some ignorant talking head on ex-Fox News personalitiesโ€™ show

#1956

Wowโ€ฆ

So let me get this straight. Trump brings up Obamaโ€™s โ€œtappsโ€ and then when questions are asked he tells the interviewer to GTFO?


#1957

Be fair. Trump has consistently demonstrated that he canโ€™t read. He HAS to make stuff up.


#1958



#1959

Fact checks abound, but hereโ€™s two that seemed decent (the NPR one focuses more on Jackson, while the NBC one has more speculation on the reasons for Trumpโ€™s comments):

#1960

It really just seems like he hates fact-checkers because of their belief in objective truth and wants to throw random things at them that he knows will drive them crazy. As if heโ€™s looking through a book of โ€œthings that drive fact checkers crazyโ€ and is just picking at randomโ€ฆ


#1961

I just think itโ€™s entirely obvious that Trump is not physically or mentally fit to be president and itโ€™s showing. The stress is causing his normally scatter-shot thoughts and speech to become entirely irrational, these interviews were literally the first time he was placed in front of many separate press people willing to be soft on him and he hung himself repeatedly during the peak pressure of his presidency - a failing 100 day landmark next to a government shutdown and zero legislative wins.

Itโ€™s also why his rallies are like an entirely different person, because Trump is most comfortable speaking loudly to cheering sycophants and being in the role of entertainer.


#1962

Uhโ€ฆ


#1963

His recent tweet storms are showing how clearly he still doesnโ€™t understand anything about how government works. Sad.


#1964

His new commercial for himself is some A-1 crappy propaganda, full of made-up facts; I especially like the way the narrator sort of coughs out the word โ€œplanโ€ when talking about the tax cuts that wonโ€™t actually happen and are mostly aimed at the ultra-rich. CNN has refused to run the ad, given that it specifically declares that CNN is โ€˜fake newsโ€™.


#1965

I see it made it back online again. My personal highlight is the quote โ€œKeystone Pipelineโ€ attributed to the New York Times, 1/24/17. Literally just those two words.

I would say banning political ads that are outright fabrications would be fine by me, but Iโ€™m sure that is a bridge too far for many.


#1966

America is winning again!

Winning what? The race to the bottom?


#1967

Thereโ€™s no words.


#1968

Yeah, but Clinton still hasnโ€™t flogged herself publicly and kinda-sorta implied that she would bomb Syria more than once.


#1969


#1970

#1971

Winning what?


#1972

Charlie Sheen is like a smarter, less coked up version of Trump.


#1973
