Donald Trump Acts Like A Villain To Energize His Base

4 462 529 Views

The President is doing his best to appear like a cartoon villain this week, supporting conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein, announcing plans to roll back the Endangered Species Act, seeking to restrict legal migration to only people of ample means, and promoting "fracking for plastic" at a speech in Pennsylvania. #LSSC #Monologue #Colbert

  • It's taken me awhile to grasp Trump followers, but I think I've got it: They like Trump because they see him as 'sticking it to the establishment they blame for destroying their way of life. Many of them, say what you will, are a proud people who value themselves in terms of their ability to provide for themselves and their families. Since many couldn't do that, and saw their lives becoming a struggle, and genuinely didn't see a future for themselves: Trump's actions appealed to them because he offered them an "out", promising them a future, with jobs and prosperity. They also saw the country as having become weak and ineffectual, with a rickety infrastructure when it was once the most powerful nation in the world: They want to see their nation thrive like how it did in the past. Trump's platform ran on the claim that he'd tear down the crooked, rotten system, and restore the country to its glory days. The most infuriating part is that, most attempts to reason with his followers will fail because, any opposition simply "confirms" the belief that he is taking it the opposition -- and they're opposing him for their own self-preservation. While some seem to believe that Russiagate was all contrived, a significant number do believe it's true, and 50% would've still voted for him anyway: The best part is that they see themselves as patriots or nationalists because they see Trump as what's best for the country. They don't really care if he enlisted the aid of a foreign power in order to collect dirt on a political adversary, so as to defeat said adversary: Their attitude is "hey, he did what he had to do in order to beat a rigged system". While this might not fit the legal definition of treason: In the past, we'd consider a political figure and his supporters to be traitors -- let's be honest.

  • I used to live in Mexico, and wasn't allowed to apply for government benefits. I have friends in Indonesia who had to prove they could support themselves financially before being granted residency. I've looked into attending University in Germany and was told to deposit $30,000 into a German bank account before relocating. China only grants 1,500 green cards per year. America does more for immigrants than any other nation, and we are constantly berated for not doing more.

Flint Michigan environmental water issues)

  • I missed that one, that American Bald Eagle reacted defensively to the treasonous POS and now the POS is removing the laws that protect it. That's a cruel petty childish thing to do for a president. That's what you would expect from a tyrant dictator. Like Kim Jon Un. Are you a Republican or an American?

  • Love steven and this show forever. But there are moments when he becomes a character of himself. Gotta make fun of everybody man not just trump otherwise you look too bias. Yea hed bad but everyone's bad in some way. Epstein was definitely involved in some shady sexual shit with Clinton. Cmon dude banged a secretary in the oval office you dont think he was up to some other shit? I voted Obama I dont like trump but guys. EXTREMISM IS THE ISSUE! Left and right have become characters of themselves and only become easier targets for the other sid due to arguments become ridiculous. "Dont kill babies!" "Dont give all out taxes to lazy people!".

Because of that doo-wrapped Orangutan the Repube party is now NOTHING but a tainted traitorous and deluded propaganda tool for the Head tool and a non-factor in the development of this country. There's a price to be paid for moronic narcissistic behavior.

  • The American people should ONLY have to pay for my transfer of wealth, especially to me, my hotels, and my cabinet, my friends, billionaires, Oil Co.s, my Admin., appointees etc., who all deserve every penny they take from you!! They have earned it in loyalty, After all I only allow such activity so they'll STAY LOYAL to me. Screw our Allies- I can't profit from THEM, I'll keep accusing them of not paying for what they pay more than WE do - just for a laugh. Remind them who's boss - who's in power. Foreign policy wise, whatever suits Putin, even Saudi's, you know. SURE Putin is a hostile adversary and poses a giant threat ( if he ever took Ukraine faggetaboutit he'd be un stoppable with his new EMPIRE! ), and yes, sure he'd nuke us, and wants to take over the world, but at LEAST MY Americans won't go down having PAID for it!!! Our kids will be obliterated with more of their hard earned tax dollars ( whatever I couldn't take) in their pockets!!! What? But I could've SAVED USA? Protected our National Security? Listen to experts and Military? Sure I could've,. but when push comes to shove "Who cares, I won't be here ( in WH anymore)!!! Main thing is it It all goes to a worthy cause - me!
