Trump 2018 - Road to Midterms/Nuclear War


#2061

Like I know this is an obvious thing to say, but it’s just really apparent when you see him challenged face to face. A privileged upbringing and a lifetime of being surrounded by Yes Men really don’t prepare you for the scrutiny of public office and he absolutely cannot handle it.

They all are:


#2064

And the White House are now pushing a doctored video from Infowars to try and back up their claim…


#2065

Looks like quite a lot of down ballot success for the Dems. They can start unpicking some of the gerrymandering and other fuckery that’s been going on.

Plus some established state infrastructure in red areas may convince them that they don’t actually have to run Republican-lite candidates in those states.


#2066

Yes although I am also reminded of Obama’s “You’re in my house” outburst that time?

I mean Trump is bad obviously…


#2067

must remember to tell the people ethnically cleansed from standing rock that the oligarchy is not “total”


#2068

I hate to be the one, but really this is astonishing. Orwell’s ideas around the Ministry of History was so close to the actual reality; we just didn’t think that it’d happen in a “democracy”. The folk sharing this stuff around as if it is fact online now is simply mind boggling.

Turns out allowing everyone to speak their mind confirms what we all probably assumed - that we are collectively all dumb as shit.


#2069


lol, he’s also named after a confederate general

a bundle of slugs stuffed into a gross old man costume. good riddance.


#2070

Gave up his senate seat to help trump and trump has fucked him over.
Truly delicious


#2071

And as a result of him giving up the senate seat the Republicans then needlessly lost the seat (I know they have Senate control anyway, but was still funny when Moore lost)


#2072

This is worrying. Firstly, hope she’s OK. But if she decides to stand down from the Supreme Court, Trump would get a third pick, and now has a bigger Senate majority so could force through someone even worse than Kavanagh. Even if he ends up being a 1 term president, thats a legacy that could fuck things up for decades to come.


#2073

She won’t resign unless she absolutely has to (she should have resigned in 2013 anyway). If anyone is going to resign in the next two years it’s Clarence Thomas as he’s a total dickhead. Of course we could have RBG dying + Thomas stepping down = a whole Supreme Court of MAGA judges. Great system there guys.


#2074

So depressing, I hope she stays on the court with life support if need be,

All the Kavanaugh stuff has made me think that a term limit wouldn’t be a bad idea, I think in Australia where I’m from they just have to retire when they are 70.


#2075

Difficult innit, because ultimately it’s ageist and that. Some people are old at 55 and others are sharp at 85. But still, aye. Not right, is it?


#2076

Does this thread need a new title now?


#2077

We’ll just set up a Trump 2019 thread in January - start thinking of snappy subtitles!


#2078

‘Kill yourself and everyone around you’


#2079

#2080

Is that a message for Trump or DiS users?
