Yeah, very disappointed in the follow-through. Wasted opportunity.
It’s like they found a way to Rick-roll the right wing, and instead of the destination video being funny, engaging, and great meme material, they played an afterschool special on how to stay off drugs, kids.
Can you imagine someone explaining the rules of ordinary 2d chess to Trump?

Right, let me get this sorted out. Now the bent vicar stands next to the queen. And the queen goes in every direction.
[looking disgusted] And they let children play this, you say? I mean, it’s pretty strong stuff, isn’t it Eddie? You know, knights taking prawns? And apparently, if a prawn goes all the way he turns into a queen!
Another way to handle that would be to have a rule that no congress person (or president) can be a candidate while serving in an elected position (with a 1 year waiting time after leaving office before they are eligible to run for office again, to prevent someone resigning in the Summer to run again that Fall) nor may they do any sort of political fund-raising of any kind while currently serving in office. That would take the pressure off. They would have a whole Term once they are out of office to raise money for their next term.
If we’re going to be throwing around new states, Puerto Rico is way, way overdue for state-hood. Or Independence if that’s what they prefer. The whole “Territory” thing has really not been working out well for them. They have been getting fucked over for far too long.
That’s what happens when you just make sh*t up as you go. A competent campaign would have planned out their messaging well in advance, and secured the appropriate channels for effectively communicating those messages.
@beschizza, would it be too much to ask to get rid of the MAGA hat icon for the article, in place of something more reflective of the own, and not looking like it promotes Trump? I throw up in my mouth a little each time I see another red ballcap.
Might I suggest the “promises made promises broken” image of a dejected Trump from the Twitter ownage?
