How does Kurt Eichenwald, in the same article . . .

. . . get to say:

The laughably unqualified Jill Stein of the Green Party


I have no problem with anyone who voted for Trump, because they wanted a Trump presidency.

Now, don't get me wrong. Jill Stein WAS laughably unqualified.

But saying that while implying that there was nothing wrong with voting for Trump kind of renders your own argument laughable.

Anyone . . . and I MEAN ANYONE . . . who thinks "President Donald Trump" is a great idea is a selfish know-nothing dumbass who needs to get smarter quickly. STRAIGHT up. That includes my relatives and yours.

Donald Trump is the most unqualified presidential candidate in modern American history and he's proving such an assertion daily. Instead of studying up on a job he knows nothing about, he's getting into Twitter wars, planning "Victory Tours" and appointing a lop-sided extremist cabinet loaded with billionaires, climate change deniers, cash-and-carry larcenists, human-rights deniers and Islamophobes.

You don't get to yip about Jill Stein while crediting people who think there's nothing wrong with racism, sexism, homophobia and/or horrible economics with making a sound choice. HORSESHIT.

Why are Republicans portrayed as strong generals/leadership types?

How strong can a person be when they . . .

* worship authoritarians
* trust corporations
* identify with oppressors rather than the oppressed
* think it’s a basic human need to be led
* refute science and history to believe stories
* bully people who won’t fight back and conduct "wars" on concepts and rhetoric
* push toxic narratives and call it “news”
* blame an imagined "powerful left" calling them names for their horrible voting choice
* continually and unknowingly employ the abuser's mentality (you MADE me do _____!!)
* are jealous of, mad at and lay blame at the feet of the "have nots"
* think life is one big competition that can be won by violence
* live their life as a bitter, paranoid coward who thinks everyone and everything is out to get them

Nowadays, we call that . . . "Presidential".

Hey, Mr. (cringe) President-Elect . . . .

. . . . don't you have a JOB to study for?

Dude, I seriously doubt your exemplary CEOing is going to apply here. That mindset's for idiots and your voters. But I repeat myself.

You got homework to do. Get off Twitter before you embarrass this country even more than your Prefrontal Cortex-void voters already have.

From the people who were screwed by the Republicans the most to the politicians that screwed them -

You just got to wonder WHY.

Trump Voter Math:

So Andrew Puzder, guest on CNBC (natch) just said the dumbest goddamned thing ever . . .

The Restauranteur and heavily Republican donor just said on CNBC, when pressed about how you separate Donald Trump's economic platform from his rather predatory views on women . . .

and I'm paraphrasing . . .

"I look at two candidates who aren't perfect. I view one of them as a corrupt, power-hungry Richard Nixon type candidate and one who is an enterprising, economically sound Bill Clinton/John Kennedy type candidate. Between those two, I'm going to pick the Clinton/Kennedy type."

You Read That Right. He actually just likened Donald GropenFingerer to Clinton and Kennedy.

Oh, What The Fuck. #liberalmediamyASS

Heard at Work while Stumpf was getting grilled: "It's like a daily lynch mob on banks anymore."

Yeah . . . an exec at my work said this.

Well . . . yeah . . . executive guy . . . . the minor inconvenience of having to testify in front of a dog-and-pony-sho . . . er . . . Congressional Committee is kind of what happens when you commit fraud, destroy public trust in financial institutions, fire thousands of low-paid workers for doing what you told them to do and all you get is "away with it".

All Republican Trump Supporter Stumpf gets is a relative slap on the wrist, as does his company.

Oh, and the low paid associates remain fired. Not ONE executive gets touched. NOT ONE EXECUTIVE EVER PAYS ANY KIND OF PRICE EVER.

"lynch mob on banks" . . .

"Stand for our National Anthem . . . OR ELSE"??

I wasn't aware that freedom, human rights, protest, gender or terms of equivalence contained "solely what conservative white people dictate them to be under threat of assault" in their respective definitions.

Dying for your country is considered heroic. Dying for merely existing, being inconvenient or sullying progress is something the victims "all just need to get the hell OVER".

Tomi Lahren: Lesbian soccer pro should be grateful America doesn’t throw gay people off buildings.

NOT the Onion Dept:

Rapinoe, in case you haven’t been following, decided to kneel during the national anthem this week in solidarity with Kaepernick, while also saying that “we need to have a more thoughtful, two-sided conversation about racial issues in this country.”

This really set off Lahren, who posted a video fuming about how ungrateful Rapinoe is to live in a country where gay people aren’t torn apart by angry mobs.

“You look at that flag and you hear that anthem, and it disgusts you, huh? Because the United States of America doesn’t respect your liberties as a gay person?” she asked rhetorically. “Hey Megan, do you know what they do to women and gay people in many countries around the world? They stone them and throw them off buildings!”

Yes, that’s right: Taking a stand against police brutality in the United States is an ungrateful act because the cops could be throwing you off buildings instead.

"It's either 'put up with our hatred' or 'get thrown off a building'".

Wonder what this world would be like . . . .

. . . . if America's white men put as much energy in promoting human rights, seeking justice for battered women and abused children, making sure everyone gets health care, ending unequal pay in the workplace, protesting economic inequality and working towards a greater good for all as they do in their desire to beat the living shit out of anyone who doesn't stand for a song?
