He may be thrilled to be in Florida but looks like Florida wasn’t too thrilled to have him there.

 

This should be blasted in Trumpkin heavy areas in swing states as an election advertising blitz. Trump appeals to lots of his base as a strongman and a "winner" because they're dolts. They want to be popular and they want to feel like they're part of a huge crowd of adoring fans. Like 16-year-olds at a boy band concert.

Showing his weakness in images like this will make some of them doubt how popular he really is. This will get some Trump voters to stay home. It won't make that voter demographic vote for Biden, but it will get them to not bother voting. And that helps the Democrats all the way down the ballot.

of course he won’t ban tik tok, because he doesn’t actually do things. he’ll announce he’s signing a new health care plan. he’ll announce there’s a new national strategy to combat the coronavirus. he’ll announce he’s building a wall. he just likes to talk, and he thinks voters are dumbshits who eat it up (because they have before). 

he didn’t even want ukraine to investigate biden. he just wanted them to announce that they were. this is who he is.

Man, all I heard from Republicans during the Obama years was their absolute hatred and disdain for Obama’s penchant to interface with private businesses by “picking winners and losers”.

Just like so many other things they hollered about and claimed as deeply held conservative principles, they haven’t so much as whispered that little catchphrase since January 20, 2017.

I don’t know why their absolute hypocrisy and double standards still make me angry - I should be numb to it by now.

Trump supporters have lost all credibility to call out anything they don’t like that’s done by democrats. I’m actually looking forward to the arguments with my family about this once he’s gone. I think I’ve lost the patience to be polite about telling them they are lying assholes because they never saw it as a problem when their team was doing it so they need to fuck right off.

I mean, this should be really interesting. TikTok is not even jokingly Chinese malware. If there were an app to ban, that’s the one. But at the same time, politically that’s a fucking snake pit on at least 2 levels for that guy.

It actually could be a good idea, but in typical Trump fashion, you know it’s all bullshit media posturing and not a sincere effort to protect our security.  

How can we know this?  Well, in addition to “He’s Donald Trump - enough said”, Microsoft actually has been exploring buying TikTok from China - which would solve the issue.  In fact, the US Government had tried to facilitate the sale.  But now Trump has come out and said he’s against the acquisition and he’s just going to ban TikTok entirely (which he can’t do).  

His statements might kill the deal and put us right back to the status quo of China owning a spy app used by all of our yutes.   And what other US company would buy TikTok if Trump signals the government is going to fuck with it and try to ban it in America?  Even just blustering about it and going on an election campaign against it would throw a huge wrench in any sale. He’s ruining the actual solution to this.  All because he is a human hot air balloon and he doesn’t like Bill Gates for believing in science and virology.

I'm sure someone has crunched the numbers on how many times he's played golf since we were hit by the pandemic that is killing 1000 Americans a day.

And apparently Facebook/Zuckerberg are about to launch a competitor called “Reels”........might explain why FB has been so Trump friendly.

Facebook is Trump friendly because he’s a soulless amoral profiteering cocksucker with zero fucking balls. Just to be clear.

Its pretty surprising they haven't focused on Trump properties yet.  Golf clubs seem like an easy target, its pretty hard to secure that much real estate.  A couple of guys with some roundup could draw dicks everywhere and make it hell to repair.

Did it ever occur to Jared that New Jersey and New York are next to swing state, Pennsylvania?  That California was next to swing state, Arizona?  That blue state Virginia was next to swing state, North Carolina?  Blue states Illinois and Minnesota are next to swing state, Wisconsin?  This virus is good at a great many things, but cartographical respect is not one of them.

Maybe it’s because I don’t live in a “swing state”, but I’m surprised I haven’t seen an ad of a Trump quotes like the virus is going away, it’s a hoax, we want to open back up by Easter,  open up is good, Fauci doesn’t have all the answers. with the death toll rising in the backdrop the enter time. Come on Lincoln project

Traitors willing to sacrifice American lives to score political points. And of course it didn't work anyway. Insert Abbott "Hmmm..." tweet.

The sad thing is that the underlying sentiment of this planned inaction will be resoundingly popular with right-wingers. The primary policy goal of the political right at this moment in history is to hurt those on the Left. It’s an ideology of envy, hatred, and divisiveness. If Trump truly chose to hurt blue states, his people will love him for it. 

Say what you will about partisan tribalism, but I truly do not believe that the Left would celebrate such deliberate cruelty by a Dem politician against red states.

For knowing absolutely nothing about this guy I think I came pretty close. Though Ole Miss should've been the easy guess.

The Lincoln Project and Meidas Touch have both done like four variations of the very ad you described.

So has the Biden campaign.

to expand a little on my shockingly coherent post from last night (how did that even happen?), this also ties into his 1980's way of thinking, and how it's all about press coverage, perception, and ratings.  he's probably lived most of his life just assuming the speeches and proclamations were what being a president was all about.  he had no idea he had to either (1) do the hard work himself, or (2) hire competent people who can do the work for him.  he's done neither, repeatedly.

he doesn't now and will never understand that in today's age of twitter news, annoying reporters and investigative journalists will stalk a story until they can write something worth clicking on.  that means keeping track of every statement, every promise, every lie, following up on it, and calling it out the minute it's proven.

you campaign in poetry, you govern in prose.  he loves to campaign.  with the rallies and the name-calling, and the tweets, and the bawdy talk.  he loves it so much, he never really stopped doing it, which is one of many reasons he's never bothered to govern.  another reason is that he has no idea how, and never bothered to learn.

it's been attributed to many people, and i'm sure i ripped it from the west wing or something.  a cursory google search says mario cuomo, so not sure.  it's always been a favorite, and incredibly accurate at times.  most politicians are good at one but typically not built for both.  trump is the worst case scenario of this playing out in real time.  although i would assume that most of the good campaigners of the past at least tried to govern.

El. Oh. El. 

 

You agreed with it in 2015 campaigning on a vague, non-committal notion of your taxes "probably" going up under your proposed tax reform. Then, once in power and with your party controlling both houses of Congress, you 180-ed, blew up the deficit giving you, your family, the super-wealthy and mega-corps massive tax cuts and now you support even vaguer "changes". Lucky you, there are plenty of morons that will continue to buy the shit you're selling.
