6. They're all

bigoted assholes who wish they could be as rich so they can get away with their unAmerican activities, just like he does. And love him because he gets away with being so trashy and promising them that if they elect him they can get away with being openly trashy assholes too. Being shitty to other people makes them feel superior.

12. Was it Will Rogers

who said that many of our poor believe they are temporarily frustrated millionaires? (And, that was maybe 80-90 years ago now?)

So, I wonder how many of them think they could be just like Trump, if only black people hired/promoted due to Affirmative Action or illegal Mexican immigrants or cheating Chinese labor, etc hadn't held them back?

50. It's most often attributed to John Steinbeck.

"Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires." It's in the wikiquotes section called "Disputed" though, as it may be a paraphrase of something similar he wrote: "I guess the trouble was that we didn't have any self-admitted proletarians. Everyone was a temporarily embarrassed capitalist."

from a candidate that's constantly striving to go lower. That was callous, thoughtless, hateful, racist and just mean. But I guess that's to be expected from both Trump and the GOP at large.

16. Seemes a bit of a stretch. Can't assume either Trump or supporters paid Garner's story any mind.

 

We say it ourselves that Trump and his supporters are uninformed ignoramuses. Why would we suddenly reverse that thinking and assume that 1) Trump has the intelligence to even know the recent context of those words and 2) his supporters are smart enough to immediately realize the same and react in gleeful remembrance of Mr. Garner's death?

I'm not saying Trump and many of his supporters aren't evil, they probably are. But the OP seems like a real reach, simply to get DUer's clicks/traffic and rile us up.

48. oh, he and his trumpchumps

 

know exactly what they are doing in applauding this tragedy of sanctioned murder. No assumption necessary. Definite racism, hate and bigotry guide this clowns campaign and stirs and agitates his trump mob to a frenzied state of modern lynch mob mentality. If he becomes the RW fascist nominee it's what the RW PTB want and his voters who have always populated the rancid underbelly of this nation couldn't be more delighted in anticipation of putting all minorities both people of color first and others "back in their place" at the feet of the superior race.

And his idiot followers know too. You can bet they cheered on or excused Garner's death, just as they did Trayvon Martin's murder.

17. He really has no...

...social filter. Rather like people who have suffered some sort of brain damage from trauma, stroke or infection, and no longer know what is socially appropriate.

We have a neighbor who nearly died from herpetic encephalitis. He recovered physically, , but cannot hold any sort of job that requires interacting with the public because he cannot keep a lid on profanity or inappropriate jokes.

I have noticed in clips from interviews with him when he was much younger, he does not speak either crassly, or with the tough guy accent he now uses. So, either there is something wrong with him, or he is just a carnival barker.

I don't use such words as 'fascist' lightly, but he really seems to be one.

BTW the French neo-fascists are split on him: Father LePen endorsed him; Daughter LePen finds him that bit too extreme and far-right even for her!

Partly to watch Rmoney fail miserably again. (The Schadenfreude would be truly sublime).

But mostly to watch the Karma unfold in all its splendor. With live TV cameras on hand to capture the images of Drumpf's head melt or, preferably, explode.

Sorry for the graphic imagery, but this clip is only make-believe.

It makes you hate and fight against everyone except the ones you SHOULD hate and fight against.

In the end, it makes you fight against yourself.

29. lol, you nailed it!

From wiki: Cartman has been portrayed as aggressive, prejudiced, arrogant, and narcissistic since his character's inception; Stone and Parker describe the character as "a little Archie Bunker". These traits are significantly augmented in later seasons as his character evolves, and he begins to exhibit extremely psychopathic, sociopathic and manipulative behavior, and also be depicted as highly intelligent, able to execute morally appalling plans and business ideas with success.
