If You Vote For Trump, Then Screw You

He’s not wrong:

Because while Trump is a miserable bastard, YOU are the people who have handed him the bullhorn. YOU are the people willing to embarrass this nation and put it on the brink of economic ruin all because you wanna throw an electoral hissy fit. YOU are the people who want to revolutionize the way America does business by voting for its worst businessman, a disgusting neon pig who only makes money when he causes problems for other people instead of solving them. YOU are the thin-skinned yokels who clutch your bandoliers whenever someone hurls the mildest of slurs at you (“deplorables”), while cheering Trump on as he leaves a bonfire of truly hateful invective everywhere he goes. YOU are the people willing to overlook the fact that Trump is an unqualified, ignorant sociopath because DURRRR HILLARY IS BAD TOO DURRRR.

You know what? No, she’s not. She’s fine. I lived through one Clinton, and I can live through another. My reasons for hating Trump are better than your reasons for hating Hillary. Show me all the arguments against her you like. You guys don’t give a shit about facts and research when it comes to Trump, so I’m not gonna give a shit about whatever clumsy meme you cook up to explain why she did Benghazi. Nope. Sorry. Fuck your arguments, and fuck you. Trump has shown no respect for anyone, so I don’t see why you deserve any either. Whatever mildly frustrating centrist liberal bureaucracy that Hillary presides over will be fine compared to the spray tan mushroom cloud that would arise all because YOU thought Trump was such a brave, un-PC dickhead to everyone within shouting distance.

Trump is human waste. He is the worst of America stuffed into a nacho cheese casing, and he is emblematic of the kind of arrogant, flag-waving, trashy, racist moron that the rest of us have to DRAG kicking and screaming into the 21st century: Cliven Bundy, Sean Hannity, Kim Davis, and on and on and on. Trump voters are the people who have spent the past decade or so voting insipid obstructionists into office, sending death threats to anyone who even mentions the idea of gun control, demanding 100% tax cuts on millions of dollars they can only daydream about making, and getting suckered in by any Oil Party candidate waving a NO GAYS flag. Fuck them. These are needy hillbilly loons who are just as starved for attention as Trump himself. And voting for Trump is their way of emulating him, of saying FUCK YOU to everyone else as a mission statement, with no regard for the fallout.

Elizabeth Warren Destroys Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf 9/20/16

I really wish she was running for Pres this time around. Although, she’s really good in the Senate.

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren to Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf: “You should resign. You should give back the money that you took while this scam was going on and you should be criminally investigated by both the Department of Justice and the Securities & Exchange Commission.”

“This just is not right. A cashier is held accountable, but Wall Street executives who never hold themselves accountable, not now and not in 2008 when they crashed the worldwide economy,” Warren said. “The only way that Wall Street will change is if executives face jail time when they preside over massive fraud. We need tough new laws to hold corporate executives personally accountable.”

Donald Trump Jr tweet: ‘I’m a refugee’ says Skittles Photographer

From BBC News:

Donald Trump Jr’s tweet comparing Skittles to refugees has caused a furore on social media. In a new development, the man who took the photo of the Skittles has revealed himself to be a former refugee.

David Kittos, 48, from Guildford, UK, woke up to find an image he had posted to Flickr in January 2010 had become embroiled in a political controversy.

“This was not done with my permission, I don’t support his politics and I would never take his money to use it,” Mr Kittos told the BBC.

“In 1974, when I was six-years old, I was a refugee from the Turkish occupation of Cyprus so I would never approve the use of this image against refugees.”

Reid Knocks Trump Over Tax Returns: They’d Reveal He’s Not That Rich!

I think Reid hits the nail on its glowing orange head with this. Trump’s soft spot has always been when people claim he’s not as rich as he says he is. He is very protective of maintaining his billionaire image and sues anybody who attempts to say that he isn’t that rich.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) ripped into Donald Trump in remarks from the Senate floor Tuesday, calling Trump a “scammer-in-chief” and accusing Trump of not releasing his tax returns because they would reveal that he is not as rich as he says he is.

“He was born with an inheritance but lost his daddy’s wealth,” Reid said. “That’s why Donald Trump won’t release his tax returns. That’s certainly one of the reasons, of course. He is not worth nearly as much as he claims to be.”

Jill Stein’s Interview with Politico

I don’t know too much about Stein. The more I read about her though, the less I want to know. For example, in this interview she claims that Clinton is worse than Trump, Bernie is a DC insider, she states that there is no link between autism and vaccinations but the chemicals are still bad (as bad as polio though Dr. Stein??), she covers her hotel carpets with sheets because of the chemicals and then ends the interview challenging Clinton to a foot race.

Yeah, I think I’ll pass on voting third party this time.

Jimmy Fallon’s Full Body Rubdown of a Hatemonger

From The Guardian:

On Thursday, Jimmy Fallon had Donald Trump on the Tonight Show and ended the segment by saying, “Donald I want to ask you, because the next time I see you you could be the President of the United States. I just want to know if there is something we could do that’s just not really presidential, really – can I mess your hair up?” Trump let him and the NBC audience roared with laughter. But, for many of us, this is very far from being a joke.

Giving comic cover to Trump just isn’t funny when he’s unleashed forces of anti-blackness and anti-immigrant sentiment. He’s labelled Mexicans rapists, raised the prospect of a ban on Muslims, patronized and insulted African Americans while pretending to be a potential new hope. As a result, Fallon managed to come over as one powerful white man protecting another.

Not only was it not funny. It didn’t do anything to take Trump down a notch (if it was even meant to). Instead, it humanized him, boosting him on that stupid metric so many Americans use when choosing a president: “Hey, he’s a guy I’d want to have a beer with! Look at him, letting Fallon have fun with him!”

Fallon had real power last night and squandered it. I can’t imagine Chelsea Handler, Trevor Noah or the recently departed Larry Wilmore building up Trump like that.

I don’t watch late night tv shows at all. I have posted some clever clips from Fallon’s show in the past however. This will be the last one I post. Trump spews nothing but hate. I never agree with GOP candidates on policies but McCain and Romney (and even Bush for that matter) didn’t seem like terrible people. I’ve never seen a presidential candidate who is within a few electoral votes of actually being president in my lifetime who has spread as much hatred and incivility as Trump. And he does it on a daily basis. Check out these tweets just from the past few hours:

Petulant insults and a subtle death threat on his opponent’s life and all within 24 hours? Fuck you Jimmy Fallon for rubbing his head like he’s some cuddly harmless buddy. He’s a monster and needs to be treated as such. Take a lesson from Seth Meyers on how to belittle the guy and still be funny:
