Trump Effect: Latino man punched from behind This is for Donald Trump

NOVEMBER 30, 2016 BY EGBERTO WILLIES

Trump surrogates want Americans to believe their eyes and ears are lying to them. I’ve been documenting the Trump Effect for a while now. A DailyKos reader alerted me to this incident along with the actual police report. It only got coverage in a small Gainesville, Florida news outlet, Gainsville.com.

We must inform America about all of these incidents that have the one common thread, the vile hate cauterized by the Donald Trump campaign, the Trump Effect. Of course, Donald Trump’s appointment of a white supremacist does little to assuage his vapid followers and to quell the fear of all ‘the others’ he spent months vilifying.

The police report describes the entire event. It is sad but given Trump rallies and his proclivity to incite violence; we expected it. VIC is the victim, Pablo J Echevarria. DEF is the defendant

Get in, let's go, there's no time to explain!

Meanwhile, in Michigan...

Wingers are insane

I just went five minutes glossing over the latest RWNJ anti-Clinton conspiracy theory, which sounds like a jumbled collection of 4chan memes on acid.

Gawd help these fools.

The mere fact that the conspiracy is completely baseless and that no one will ever go to jail over theses fantasies, it'll do nothing except drive them further up the wall.

There's no redeeming these morons whatsoever.

2 Black guys walk into store asking if they sold sliced cheese, workers run and hide and call cops

‘All I asked for was sliced cheese’: Richmond roommates bewildered after store employees hide, call the police

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — What began as a spontaneous trip to the store ended up being one of the most bizarre experiences of Ricky Berry’s life. He and his roommate went to purchase a grocery item and ended up having the police called on them.

Berry and his roomate told 8News they walked into the CVS in Carytown and asked an employee if they sold sliced cheese. The worker kindly replied that they did not.

A few minutes later, the employee — all of the store employees, in fact — were nowhere to be found. Berry and his roommate, Philip Blackwell, said they were in the store with another customer for more than 30 minutes alone before an officer with the Richmond Police Department showed up.

“We looked around for probably 30, 45 minutes and we couldn’t find anybody,” Blackwell said.

As for the third customer who was as confused as the two roommates, Berry said, “he was in the store before we were actually. He had a bad tooth, all he wanted was some Orajel. That’s all he needed.”

KING: Black teen James Means shot and killed by white man who called him another piece of trash

SHAUN KING

James Means.

You will know this name. Tragically, it now belongs in the ever-increasing roll call of unarmed black victims of racial violence.

On this past Monday evening, outside of a Dollar General Store in Charleston, West Virginia, 15-year-old James Means, was shot and killed by William Ronald Pulliam, 62, police said.

Means, like Emmett Till and Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin before him, did nothing to ever even warrant a confrontation from Pulliam. Witnesses claim that what set Pulliam off was that Means accidentally bumped into him while entering the store.

After Pulliam left the store, the two exchanged words a second time, and Pulliam shot the teen twice in the abdomen, leaving him to die, then proceeded to go home, eat dinner, then go hang out at a friend's house, according to a criminal complaint.

Everybody bookmark this shit and we'll come back to it in two years to see how he does...

http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/22/politics/donald-trump-presidency-poll-transition/index.html

(CNN)Two weeks after Election Day, most Americans say President-elect Donald Trump will ultimately do a good job as president, though fewer approve of the way he's handled the transition so far, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

A narrow majority (53%), say they think Trump will do a very or fairly good job as president, and 40% say they have a lot of confidence in Trump to deal with the economy, a share that outpaces the percentage who had that much confidence in Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan ahead of their first inaugurations.

That perception comes as majorities think Trump will achieve several of the goals outlined during his campaign as top priorities. Nearly three-quarters say Trump is likely to repeal and replace Obamacare, two-thirds think he will renegotiate NAFTA and 6 in 10 say he'll create good-paying jobs in economically challenged areas. Separately, 63% say they expect the economy to be in good shape a year from now, the highest share to say so since September 2012.

Americans are more divided over whether Trump will "drain the swamp" and reduce the amount of corruption in Washington (51% think that's likely), defeat ISIS (50% see that as likely) or build a wall along the border with Mexico (48% see that as likely).
All told, 66% say a Trump presidency will bring change to the country, but just 43% say it will be change for the better, twenty points below the 63% who thought Obama would bring change for the better in November 2008. That share has dropped precipitously among independents (from 88% for Obama to 60% for Trump), and among Democrats, even when compared to Republican ratings of Obama (49% of Republicans thought Obama would bring change for the better, just 22% of Democrats say that about Trump).

That is, of course, if he's not impeached within the next two years. Considering the fact that the GOPrs probably wouldn't impeach his ass if all he did at the State of the Union address was stand behind the podium and eat a baby, he'll probably be around to compare the numbers.

A friendly reminder...
