Pop culture pushing "he is going to be re-elected anyway"

So something that has been bothering me lately is pop culture outlets like SNL latest skits taking an angle that Trump is just going to get elected again anyway is really bothersome. That seems to be a growing forgone conclusion I am seeing more and more and it feels like there is an effort to suppressing the vote already.

I expect to see some of this stuff in facebook propaganda memes but seeing it elsewhere is really bothersome.

1. A great inflection point to introduce mis/dis information. Should be something to watch for.

Not necessarily Pro-Trump, but packaging a message on the futility of voting, resignation that nothing will change....yada, yada....that needs to be confronted and deconstructed where ever we hear it.

2. Agreed I was VERY disheartened

 

I was very disheartened with the SNL skits this week. It just felt really wrong and was delivering a message of resignation.

3. Its been reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that SNL has been bashing WI voters

States like WI are lost with shit like that.

5. SNL has about two minutes of actual comedy during the hour and a half they are on.

And that is interspersed randomly... Maybe by mistake.

9. Absolutely, relax. The system is working. He's doing down in a measured and exact way. No one ....

will be able to claim he was "lynched". He deserves all the due process that we all do. He's going down and he will not be re-elected.

Be of good cheer. Its all moving to the inevitable conclusion. Sometimes between now and Nov 21, 2021 he'll be perp walked in cuffs.

11. I agree

Itís not funny, and why would we normalize the radical idea of him getting re-elected? Itís harmful and SNL writers should see the harm in it.
