I see more Trump signs than Biden signs in California.

All the lockdowns must end immediately.

Joe Biden was the most corrupt Vice President in American history.

Biden has no ground game. The President is surging.

Trump Tweets to Baltimore

Be smart Baltimore! You have been ripped off for years by the Democrats, & gotten nothing but poverty & crime. It will only get worse UNLESS YOU ELECT KIMBERLY KLACIK TO CONGRESS. She brings with her the power & ECONOMIC STRENGTH OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. She works sooo hard....

....Baltimore will turn around, and I will help. Crime will go way down, money and jobs will pour in. Life will be MUCH better because Kimberly really cares. The Dems have had 100 years and they gave you nothing but heartache. Baltimore is the WORST IN NATION, Kimberly will..

....fix it, and fast. The current recipient has no chance, and won’t even try. As I have often said, Baltimore is last in everything, WHAT THE HELL DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE! Kimberly is fully Endorsed by me, something I do not do lightly. Take advantage of it and MAKE BALTIMORE GREAT!

At best this is "Cancel Culture", you know, that evil leftist thing the RNC warned us about.

But if an idiot like Cesar Sayoc takes this as a hint to do real harm to Laurene Powell Jobs, the Trumpists will exonerate Trump because he wrote "write her, let her know", not "send her pipe-bombs". :rolleyes:

Boat parade in Texas for trump.
Quote:

The authorities rescued numerous people from the waters of Lake Travis in Texas on Saturday after at least four boats sank at an event promoted as a Trump Boat Parade, officials said. The Sheriff’s Office in Travis County received “multiple” calls of boats in distress starting at 12:15 p.m. local time, a spokeswoman, Kristen Dark, said. Christa Stedman, a spokeswoman for Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services, said no injuries had been reported. New York Times link
Boat owners were encouraged to participate, displaying as many trump flags on their boats as possible.

Cancel culture generally applies to things that both parties agree is true (the person being cancelled said the things and the person believes those things). Parties disagree with what the consequences should be..

Trump is alleging things that the other party disputes, but would agree the alleged behavior would be worth removal.

Again no. We have had presidents who would be lucky to tie their own shoe laces (Bush jnr eg) and ones that it would be pushing it they know who they are in the last year's in office (Reagan eg). The world didn't end.

Most people don't, but they will probably vote him in again. Which while slightly irritating in a "wtf?" Kind of way. I have to admit would be amusing personally, given the catastrophic meltdown I would get to watch on here and other media outlets.

Do at least some Drumpf voters and supporters want to see the world burn? The evidence would seem to be right before our eyes.

Evidently. Or they have given up on Trump and rather than admitting they were wrong, they've resorted to trolling the forums to get some last triggering done before it's curtains.

Osama bin Laden's niece is endorsing Trump for president

Captain_Swoop 6th September 2020 10:43 AM

The Daily Beast:

While strolling around the lavish ambassador’s residence in Paris, he reportedly took a fancy to a number of pieces of artwork, including a bust of Benjamin Franklin and some Greek mythical figurines.
So he ordered them removed from the residence and packed into Air Force One and brought to the White House, according to Bloomberg.
White House spokesman Judd Deere confirmed the poaching, telling Bloomberg, “The president brought these beautiful, historical pieces, which belong to the American people, back to the United States to be prominently displayed in the People’s House.” The ambassador, Jamie McCourt, was surprised but didn’t interfere after Trump reportedly told him they would get their art back “in about six years.”

And what coverage he's getting (outside OANN) is either people pointing out that the Covid problems are of his own making, people letting him hang by his own racism or carcrash interviews even his Faux news lackeys aren't willing to cover up.

Especially when the brag is actually a lie. Trump is polling at the same levels with Hispanics and Latinxs that he did in 2016, one very wide outlier notwithstanding. If you're going to lie, at least try to make your side look good.

He’s derided the Pac-12 before for postponing their football season. Unfortunately, they’re looking at ways to start play before the spring, too. Our nation's universities are run by greedy scum.

I think that it's long since been demonstrated that nihilism has a very heavy influence on the Trump side. Which... honestly isn't a surprise reaction to GOP propaganda and efforts. Fear and hate takes a toll on any and everyone (though conservatives physically measurably more, at last check, given that their brains tend react notably more quickly and strongly to the stimuli) and applying a dirty bandage over festering wounds isn't solving problems, even if you can dupe people into thinking that it helps.

Not just probably... and not necessarily even the ones that we would normally consider more extreme. The rapture and end of the world coming sooner means that they get to be reunited with God sooner (without dying or suffering in their calculations, generally).

It seems the figurines were replicas, made in the 20th century as copies of much older works. It seems just about right that he'd be attracted to them. They're gaudy, overdone, don't match the room and childishly pretentious. The man has no taste.

oops. I was assuming they were originals.

While I might put it in the list of top 30 gauche things DJT has done after taking office, I would not put it in the top 100 things to complain about.
Now, if he were to take them with him when he leaves, I might say top 60 things to complain about. If he sold them and pocketed the money, then maybe the top 40 things to complain about.

Although in the top 40 things to complain about, it would probably be practical to leave maybe 10 empty spaces for things that are going to come out in the next 6-18 months.


ETA
I hope to god that it later comes out that the originals were in the embassy, but the ambassador had the foresight to make and display copies when he heard DJT was coming.
