MindlessTrump cultists...

keep telling themselves that #45 has had great successes. 

Silly numpties!

They're truly, exceptionally, willfully uninformed.

Speaking of mindless Trump cultists, this is for the trolls who come to P.E. daily trying to convince me and themselves that #45 is wildly popular and will be re-elected for a second term. Silly numpties!:


"Only 31 percent of American voters like President Donald Trump as a person, while 59 percent dislike him, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today."

 " 'Not the kind of numbers that gets you a date to the prom - or helps your party as the Midterm Elections approach. Only one in three Americans 'likes' President Donald Trump,' said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll."

"For President Trump, another Groundhog Day. His job approval gets another cool reception in midst of the sweltering summer. What does it mean? Simple: The base is hanging in and the rest aren't buying in."

And this is especially sweet coming from Ronald Reagan's son, Ron Reagan:

"What do you think you’re going to get when you install in the Oval Office an imbecilic sociopath? Things are not going to turn out well.” -- Ron Reagan on Trump. 


 "White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders apologized for using incorrect numbers to wrongly claim that more jobs have already been created for African Americans under President Trump than there were under former President Barack Obama."

Thinking about Aretha today.

Her family reports that she is gravely ill.

Here she is, being her most excellent self:


Here's the mentally whacko preznit lying to Omarosa when she was fired: 

 "Omarosa Manigault Newman reveals recording she made of Trump day after she was fired.


 "Omarosa? Omarosa what's going on? I just saw on the news that you're thinking about leaving? What happened?" Trump is heard saying on the tape, which Manigault Newman said was made when the president call her one day after her termination in December last year. 

 She responds, "General Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave." 

 "Nobody even told me about it," Trump replies. 

 Manigault Newman then says, "Wow," before Trump reiterates his shock. 

 "You know they run a big operation, but I didn't know it,” Trump is heard saying on the tape. "I didn't know that. Goddamn it. I don't love you leaving at all."

Here's a question to ask @realDonald Trump:  Hey, Mr. Preznit! Who hired this "dog" and crazy lowlife in the first place?

Trump is a disgustingly petulant, petty human being

I've never agreed with most of John McCain's politics, but I do recognize the sacrifices he made and the suffering he endured in service to America.

Trump played tennis while Senator McCain was a POW during the Vietnam conflict. Trump got out of serving his country because of bone spurs; Senator McCain was tortured. For five years.

Cadet Bone Spurs signed an act named for Senator John McCain without mentioning McCain's name once. Without acknowledging Senator McCain's valor and sacrifice. Only a person without human decency could behave in such a dishonorable way. But we have seen, time and time again, that Donald Trump has no honor or human decency. He showed that again today.

Trump Signs Act Named After John McCain Without Mentioning McCain Once 

"The president couldn’t say one nice thing about the senator before signing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act."


"Trump went to Fort Drum in New York to sign the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act but did not mention the senator at all in his speech. The president has frequently insulted McCain, a Vietnam veteran and prisoner of war, even as the senator battles an aggressive form of brain cancer."

Anti-Semites and Nazis have found a VERY comfortable home in the current GOP.


Jerusalem Post 
American Politics 


“Jewish people can be beautiful people, but there’s ideologies associated with that that I don’t agree with...Jews today are a remnant of the tribe of Judah that rejected Christ.” 


"A Missouri Republican who has made anti-Semitic and other bigoted statements handily won a primary for the state’s House of Representatives. 

 Steve West, who promotes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on a radio show he hosts, defeated three other candidates Tuesday in the bid for a seat representing Clay County. He won with 49.5 percent of the vote; the second-place finisher had 24.4 percent."

We've read many right-wing blogs and news sites that confirm the sickening reality that anti-Semitism is accepted by Goopers.

Think of the thousands of men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice fighting in WW II against the Nazis and then think about the idiot POTUS. He spends his time whining about African-American athletes exercising their Constitutional right to protest an injustice, but President Porn Star Shagger says nothing about the GOP and its acceptance of Nazi filth into its organization.

I've had a couple of Trump cultists come here to crow about the POTUS's approval numbers. And they do this out of desperation because they actually know how despised President Spanky is by a majority of Americans and by the rest of the civilized world.

#45 is at 40% approval, not 50% -- the fake number his cultists left in my comment section. #45's cultists and family members are possibly bigger liars and charlatans than he is. They're certainly as stupid as #45 is:

Donald Trump Jr. Deletes False Instagram That Claims Father Is More Popular Than Obama

"Donald Trump Jr. deleted a doctored image from his Instagram Friday, which showed his father’s approval rating at 50%. 

 The falsified image originated from a CNN segment that aired on Monday, which compared numbers from the same period in the past two presidencies. 

It showed President Donald Trump’s current 40% approval rating, compared to former president Barack Obama’s 45%, as well as unemployment rates and jobs added.

Trump Jr. posted a doctored image on Wednesday that had a “50%” overlaid on top of Trump’s approval rating. The original 40% figure was still slightly visible over the poorly-doctored 50%. Trump Jr. included the caption, “Amazing. I guess there is a magic wand to make things happen and @realdonaldtrump seems to have it #maga #americafirst."

A liar and cheat -- just like his father.

The wearisome double standard

"If it weren't for double standards, the Republican Party would have no standards at all."

Mike Pence during the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal:

"If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous. Throughout our history, we have seen the presidency as the repository of all of our highest hopes and ideals and values. To demand less is to do an injustice to the blood that bought our freedoms.

 Our leaders must either act to restore the luster and dignity of the institution of the Presidency or we can be certain that this is only the beginning of an even more difficult time for our land."

This is the guy Mike Pence said was a blessing to serve as his VP:

Looking forward to reading this.

Rick writes: “Everything we Never Trump folks warned you of, including massive, decades-long downstream election losses, is coming. Alienating African Americans and Hispanics beyond redemption? Check. Raising a generation of young voters who are fleeing the GOP in droves? Check. Age-old beefs, juvenile complaints, and ego bruises taking center stage while the world burns? Check. Playing public footsie with white supremacists and neo-Nazis? Check. Blistering pig-ignorance about the economy and the world? Check. … Shredding the last iota of the GOP’s credibility as a party that cares about debt, deficits, and fiscal probity? Check.” 

 [Wildon] goes on to absolutely clobber the voters who make up Trump’s base and devour his conspiratorial ramblings: “Honestly, at this point, it’s almost a moral imperative to slap the stupid out of them.”


"We underestimated the deep human psychological need to be part of a movement based not on hope but on channeling the comments section of the nuttiest blogs. That’s what Trump gave them. He was an avatar for their anger, their impotence, and their blamestorming for everything wrong in their world.”
