The Gallery of Trump-Inspired Assholes

If I may say, from an outside perspective, you already have all this.

People do things in the US all the time that we in the UK would certainly consider terrorism.

You all just do an awful lot to tell yourselves it’s somehow not.

Well, not so much BBers but even there it is a case of “Oh, no. Not again.”

True enough. I was referring to quantity, not quality. We have at least our share of self-styled revolutionaries, but ours are well armed and quite evidently capable of inflicting mass casualties.

Again, I don’t really understand what you mean. This stuff goes on all the time in the US. The quantity is high. Their activity levels are high.

Etc.

The uniformed guns are overwhelmingly dominated by Trump supporters. And US police have a history of ignoring the law in favour of their own political preferences.

The scary part is he doesn’t need one. If he can arrange private security to get the nuclear football he can order a launch just to keep himself in power if he’s competent enough to concoct such a conspiracy (which all should doubt). But I can still see him trying to do it even if he’s incompetent. Is it bad that I’m this pessimistic?

Not disagreeing with you, but to think the frequency of such attacks could not increase is naïve. And I am certainly not hoping for such. That is the worst case scenario, in which “freedom fighters” supporting Il Douche commit terror attacks at a rate that could make our current carnage look tame by comparison. And Mexico really may pay for a wall at that point, to keep American refugees out.

Yep. And as Michael Cohen warned us (much to the yawns of corporate media), Trump isn’t at all likely to welcome a peaceful transition of power, especially if he’s somehow impeached or otherwise removed, and even if he loses in 2020.

Oh, it could of course get a lot worse.

It was just the implication that this wasn’t already happening (plus I somehow conflated your comment with someone talking about the risk of Northern Ireland style Troubles in the US being more likely than US Civil War Mark 2 which I now realise wasn’t you and wasn’t even this thread…).

Shocking, right? Well, no, not so much. Unfortunately.

When they came for the hamberders, I said nothing, because I don’t know what that word means.

I see a lot of Trump supporters always quoting Huey Long (frequently attributing it to Churchill like Greg Abbott did).

“The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists”

I guess attributing it to Huey Long would be awkward.

The most outrageous part of a truly outrageous story, is when Jared’s lawyer says, effectively, we lied to you about this story previously, and even if this story is true, it does not change the lie we told you earlier.

I keep thinking they have hit bottom, but DAMN if the assholes don’t start digging again!

ETA, the fact th8s is from Fox News just adds to the mummer’s farce this administration has become.
