There's really no end to how stupid this is all going to get before it's over.





You know, everyone says it's not supposed to make sense, like that's the whole point, dude. And I'm just saying, you know, that's like an excuse for lazy storytelling. Just don't sell me shite and tell me it's gold, all right? I might be stoned, but I'm not high. You know what I mean?

If we consider his "constituency" to be full of the so-called one-percent, then he cares very much about them, as evidenced by pretty much everything he's tried to do in the past six weeks or so. Otherwise, I suppose I could've used a different phrase. "Cares about the populace", for example, since he pretended he was some kind of populist option. Which was =never= the case, but he convinced enough of the 'common people' that he would represent their interests in The Swamp.

That is the group he "cares" about cheering him. All those people that come to his rallies to cheer and chant, who hate Obamacare, but are happy to have the ACA to provide them health insurance, who couldn't stand Hillary because of how she was corrupt, and who fear that the blacks, browns, and gays are going to do to them what they did for generations to the minorities.

Oh and the people who think we need to spend more money on guns, tanks, ships and planes, but less on the troops after they come home.

Broken promise:

January, 2017 - Trump vows insurance coverage "for everybody"

March, 2017 - Trump backs plan that would see anywhere between 14 and 24 million fewer people covered under insurance.

And cuts to Medicare and Medicaid with the passing of TrumpCare.

Well, if his idea of reducing the deficit was killing off the senior citizens that supported him, then he's on his way to doing that.

I can't even be mad at the guy. I just want him to quit acting like such a thin-skinned, racist little bitch. I know he's not gonna do that, so why even bother wasting the energy and getting pissed off at this point? He's gonna cut his own throat and those that back him, its just a matter of time.

I'll take it with a grain of salt about the loss of the Trumpcare debacle. It only failed because the batshit TeaBircher side of the congressional GOP didn't think it was harsh enough and didn't take enough away from the "moochers and parasites" who need the ACA/Obamacare. So basically the side that wants to clobber the needy and lesser-incomes couldn't agree on how much they wanted to hurt them by. Whatever facets of the human character were on display during this process were all entirely negative so it's not some victory for whatever good guys are still out there.

I can't find the article that I read this morning again, but the reporter was talking to a woman who was a Trump voter and is shocked that her undocumented husband is being deported. Apparently he stayed over his tourist visa from Mexico and ignored a voluntary deportation order from 2000 after taking a wrong turn in Niagara Falls and going to the border.

And another story about a man who bought the restaurant from his sister and is beloved of his neighbors and customers in a county that went 70% Trump are they are all surprised that Trump is actually deporting him even though he is such a nice guy.

WHAT DID YOU STUPID FUCKS THOUGHT WOULD HAPPEN?????

These are the same dumbfucks that are completely stunned that they stand to lose their health care insurance.

Wait until they get pregnant and lose Medicaid coverage if they can't find a job two months after giving birth:

I hope their fear and hatred of brown people was worth it.

To paraphrase a tweet I saw, hard to stay sympathetic for regretful Trump voters when they all pretty much say "I knew he'd be screwing somebody over, I just didn't know it would be me!"
