Trump counterprogrammed the Democratic debate with a rally featuring a rant about toilets




Trump counterprogrammed the Democratic debate with a rally featuring a rant about toilets
The contrast between Trump’s rally in Wisconsin and the Democratic debate in Iowa could not have been clearer.
By Aaron Rupar@atrupar Jan 14, 2020, 10:35pm EST


At the same time that presidential candidates at the Democratic debate in Des Moines, Iowa, were discussing foreign policy and their respective qualifications to be commander in chief, President Donald Trump was less than 400 miles away in Milwaukee bashing lightbulbs that make him look orange and toilets that don’t flush well enough for his liking.

No, really.


Trump’s counterprogramming to the Democratic debate ended up being a relatively uneventful rally by his standards. But the contrast between the two events couldn’t have been more stark, and threw the stakes of the 2020 election into sharp relief.

“Somebody said, ‘Oh, sir, don’t mention the lightbulb,’” Trump said at one point, right around the same time that former Vice President Joe Biden was defending his vote for the Iraq War. “The new lightbulb costs five times as much, and it makes you look orange. And I was more interested in the orange than I was in the cost.”

Trump transitioned to hyping “new dishwashers that give you more water so you can actually watch and rinse your dishes without having to do it 10 times” — comments that suggest he’s not overly familiar with how dishwashers function.

1. i figured it out...

he is obsessed with toilets because he wants to make sure no one can
drug screen his pee, so he flushes ten times.

15. Didn't a story surface last year about Kim Jong Un, where he traveled

with his own toilet out of fears that his poop would be collected for analysis? Probably where Chump gets his ideas from...

5. Yep, and it's damn scary that this shit is being allowed to continue.

But, this is what happens when an entire party is so corrupt that they put their own interests ahead of their country's.

6. Short term interests at best

Long term, Vlad Putin and the forces of fascism benefit, but we'll all be screwed by catastrophic climate change.

19. Trump pushes the buttons of their resentments

And they love him for it.

They are being conned and manipulated against their own interests but are too much in thrall to this cult to realize it.

4. He normally blames the move to energy saving bulbs on Obama, but it was Bush2.

As for toilet flushing...

9. J is for genius ... Watch and rinse your dishes? D. Trump Wisconsin 1/14/20

Trump transitioned to hyping “new dishwashers that give you more water so you can actually watch and rinse your dishes without having to do it 10 times”

This from the man who last Sept. came out and said, "Poland is a country." He is clearly not well and
is getting worse rapidly as time goes by. "They" have to know he is not well.

13. That IS the problem...EVERYONE knows he is a doofus in decline and accelerating...

They just do not care...he "owns the libs" and he lets them stack the courts and that is how they plan to thwart the government of the USA when they face into permanent minority status (white Trumpers who HATE minorities and FEAR the future).

The facts are 1) Trump must go...2) after he is gone, many, many laws must be strengthened and many, many norms must be codified....and 3) the courts are going to have to be widely expanded, including the SCOTUS, to rebalance and de-politicize them.

That must all happen in the first 100 days of the next administration, whichever Democratic candidate that is...

Oh, and the FIRST SCOTUS nominee should be Barrack Obama (followed by Merrick Garland)....

14. The "Oh, Sir" tell.

Was it Daniel Dale who pointed out that every time IQ45 mentions someone saying "Sir", what follows is another lie.

18. He's a stand up comedian.

And a really bad one at that. Any other person who would say such insane things about toilets and kitchen appliances would get laughed out of the Chuckle Hut every night. But Trump gets to do his routine in front of massive crowds every night and people believe him.
