This is What the Election of Trump Has Brought to America


And every person who voted for Donald Trump is part of this. Why? Because people who voted for Trump never pressured him to disassociate himself from these Nazi pigs.

Yesterday, Trump had a meeting with various media, and apparently he had a screaming fit because, he claims, they're "unfair" to the little wuss and they ran photos that made the man-child look unpretty. 

Trump had time to lambast the media but except for a weak slap on the write, he's said nothing about the White Nationalists/Supremacists who celebrated Trump's election with Nazi salutes and "Heils!"

If you support Trump you support this:



White Nationalists Chant 'Heil Victory,' Rail Against Jews At DC Meeting



To celebrate Donald Trump’s presidential victory, dozens of white nationalists descended on the Ronald Reagan Building in downtown Washington, D.C. on Saturday to share glasses of wine and make Nazi salutes for the cameras.

 The event, organized by the white nationalist National Policy Institute, was part of the movement’s ongoing effort to normalize their brand of “pro-white,” anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant nationalism.

Yet there were deep cracks in the facade. The New York Times reported that by the eleventh hour of speeches and panel discussions cheering Trump’s win and decrying the marginalization of white Americans in coded language, the rhetoric took a blatantly anti-Semitic turn.

In his closing speech, Richard Spencer, NPI president and figurehead of the so-called “alt-right” movement, said that white people, whom he called the “children of the sun,” were “awakening to their own identity” in the Trump era. Spencer ranted about the mainstream media and asked the audience if they should be referred to “in the original German,” according to the Times.

The audience screamed back, “L├╝genpresse,” a Nazi-era word that means “lying press” and appeared on signs at several Trump rallies during his campaign. Spencer also reportedly suggested that the media criticized Trump during the 2016 race to protect Jewish interests.

 By the end of his speech, a number of audience members had their arms stretched out in Nazi salutes and cheers of “Heil the people! Heil victory” broke out, according to the report. Former reality TV star Tila Tequila was part of the crowd, and posted a photo on Twitter of her and several other attendees making Nazi salutes.




"One wonders if these people are people at all, or instead soulless golem," Spencer told the crowd.
On CNN's The Lead, host Jim Sciutto asked Rebecca Berg of Real Clear Politics and Matt Viser of the Boston Globe whether Trump should be expected to publicly denounce comments like these. Sciutto, Berg, and Viser all vigorously condemned the comments and suggested that if Trump were to address these types of comments, it would only act to legitimize bigots. Still, it was not long before screenshots of the clip circulated like wildfire.

I've decided that if the ahole elect starts a registry for Muslims, he can add me to the list. Same with Mexicans or any other group he singles out. Count me as one of them!

We can only hope these goons are going to be disappointed.

What this election has brought is a President Elect who has admitted in his IRS filings to self dealing, a crime.

With all his lawyers and money, he could not get good advice, or did he just choose to cheat and illegally enrich himself and his family at the publics expense?

If I did this at the 501(c)3 I run, I'd lose a bunch of donations before the IRS even got around to revoking our status.

the problem is when trump leaves office, the lunatics who voted for him will remain.

Donald J. Trump is about one thing and one thing only, his brand. He is shrewd, cunning, and has damn good attorneys working for him.

It has never been about ethics or morals with Trump. Rather it is about what he can get away with in the pursuit of enriching himself, regardless of the outcome for others.

There have been modern day politicians on both sides of the aisle that have been less than ideal, yet at the end of the day they were never viewed as unfavorably as Trump. Personally I have no ability to hold and maintain even a small degree of respect for the man. I use the foregoing term (man) very loosely with respect to Trump.

Bluebull, you and others (myself included) are pledging to do the same. Trump has walked back almost all of the "promises" he made to the poor dupes who voted for him. Let's see if he does this. There will be tremendous push-back from sane Americans if he dares to do this shameful act.

Kevin, Trump's goons and Nazis are Trump's constituency.

Dave, I have a long memory, and I remember certain far right bloggers accusing Mr. Obama of all the illegal things that Trump is doing or has done. People can criticize President Obama's policies as is their right, but NO ONE can question the man's honesty, honor, and dignity as our president.

E. Rosewater, I think more than a few people who voted for Trump didn't realize what a colossal jackass he truly is. He's America's greatest embarrassment, a man without dignity, honor, or any knowledge of how to govern.

RN, Trump is now telling the American people that when the president does it, it isn't illegal. So he'll conduct his businesses, enriching himself and his empire, while presidenting.

It is worth noticing that he still hasn't had a press conference with the media to talk about issues or anything else that concerns the business of the United States. So far, all we've heard from him is how mean the cast of Hamilton is and that The New York Times is failing.

Donald J. Trump, so far, is an unmitigated disaster for this country.
