I've created a monster Cuz nobody wants to see Marshal no more They want Trump Like I'm chopped liver.

But we already knew that, and our Republican friends already knew Schwartz is a lying liberal.


#4

It simply must be said, and often.


#5

Explains why Putin likes him so much.


#6

Who doesn’t like to have an obedient puppet to play with?

This the same bullshit we heard after the Brexit vote. “Why did I do that?”, “Wish I had voted the other way!” Waaaaaaa. Now it’s “Why did I write that?” boo hoo. Everyone hates me…

Fucking stupid to start with I say.

I can hear it now if Trump wins … countless declarations of remorse. Spare me.

Yes, an actual Trump presidency could end civilization as we know it. Yes, Putin is smarter than Trump, and it is possible that Donald Trump could win the popular vote. However, his purpose is not to become president. He tries so hard to alienate the voters, but fails with his true and loyal fans. What is Donald Trump’s purpose in his performance? Is it to ensure that a Republican never again inhabits the White House? Is it to get Crooked-Weak Hillary elected by terrorizing the people into electing her? Remember that she was utterly weak in securing the nomination against Obama, and needs a great deal of help for any chance of success. Could it be to get a Socialist, Bernie Sanders, elected? That is a very hard task in America. Maybe we will see what the answers are; however, unintended consequences tend to happen when such a charade is undertaken. We can only hope that the surprises for all of us do not end civilization, and that there is life ahead when Trump becomes a bad memory. Let’s hope they have contingency plans.

At the time, Schwartz enjoyed writing the book,

No he didn’t. In the article he talks about how he felt he had to do it for the money because his family was growing and the bills were tight. Even then he thought it might discredit him professionally.

Some choice quotes:

Thank you!


#11

I notice a similar sensation whenever I see him pop up in my Facebook feed.

She was a reasonably close second last time around. Not sure how that qualifies as “utterly weak.”

The article is worth reading. Herr Drumpf’s image as this self-made kajillionaire is pathetic. The man inherited something like $300 million and would have been wealthier if he had just parked the lot in a money market or index fund. Being a compulsive liar, a vain, thin-skinned short fingered vulgarian just is who he is. That this cheeto-colored buffoon could be President is shocking and frightening, deeply frightening.

First one up against the wall is gonna be Mr Schwartz…

I could have considered a Kasich/Sane Person ticket (Rubio? boy blunder? Fiorina? and let her HP the country? no and no) but this guy shouldn’t be trusted with a spork.

“He’s not nearly as smart as people might imagine he is,” Schwartz said.

That’s a staggeringly low bar to set…


#15

Superb!


#16

"People are dispensable and disposable in Trump’s world.” If Trump is elected President, he warned, “the millions of people who voted for him and believe that he represents their interests will learn what anyone who deals closely with him already knows—that he couldn’t care less about them.”

This is something that should be obvious, but sadly Drumpf supporters won’t figure this out until it’s too late.

They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind


#18

I think he’s gonna hire half the poor to kill the other half.


#19

them that sow the blowhards shall reap a culture that blows.

actually - reaping a culture is a lot harder than it looks, because the roots go so deep.

Jobs, jobs, jobs!
