Trump's America

91-year-old man beaten with brick, told 'go back to Mexico'

We have become a society of thugs.

Trump started this debasement by calling Mexicans rapists, criminals, and drug dealers.

It's not surprising that an unstable Trump cultist would act on Trump's denigration of an entire culture.

Trump has brought shame and degradation to America.

The Hill 

 President Trump has ranked as the worst president of all time in the 2018 Presidents & Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey released by Boise State University Monday. 

The poll ranks “presidential greatness,” since the first POTUS. The survey was conducted among 170 current and recent members of the Presidents & Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association. 

The group is comprised of scholars dedicated to studying the American presidency. Each member was asked to rank the current and past presidents from zero (worst) to 100 (best). 

The ranking is based on overall performance in office. President Trump scored a mind-boggling 12.34 out of 100. 

 When only Republican respondents were polled, Trump still ranked 40th worst out of 45 Presidents. Trump managed to beat James Buchanan among Republican pollsters.

They need to catch the bastards who beat up that guy and send them to prison -- and publicize it well when they do. Thanks to Trump, some people have gotten the impression they can get away with this kind of thing now.

For a person that age, such injuries are life-threatening. This should qualify as attempted murder.

When only Republican respondents were polled, Trump still ranked 40th worst out of 45 Presidents.

That's actually encouraging. Perhaps on some level they're starting to realize what a disaster the guy is.

Was the guy here legally?

Even if the elderly man were not here leagally, it is still a crime to assault a person with a brick. America is still (but probably not for very much longer) a nation of laws. Trump cultists don't understand what it means to be a decent human being, otherwise Anon would not have asked that damn fool question.

If you want to understand why this country has lost its way, read that horrendous comment again.

If the guy didn't break the law he wouldn't have been here and bingo he wouldn't have gotten knocked on the noggin.

Trumpanzees are capable of looking at a sobbing, terrified toddler ripped away from its parents and thinking only of whether the kid is here legally or not. Of course they'd be the same way about an adult. They have less empathy and humanity than a rattlesnake.

When they start losing their jobs and health care in ever-growing numbers because of Trump's stupid trade wars boomeranging back on the red states (the other countries know just where to retaliate), I won't feel much sympathy. Not if they're the kind of people who show such callousness toward the victimized.

No one deserves to be beaten like the gentleman subject of this post. Period.

The Anon jackass who posts such bullshit either a) knows this and is simply yanking your chain Shaw, or b) is as you say, a reprehensible individual that has no respect for human decency or the rule of law.

In either case this Anon has shown himself/herself/it to be a POS.

Sorry if that offends someone but the truth is the truth. Regardless whether or not any one is offended by it.

Are you sure YOU haven't been knocked on the head? That sentence makes no sense, and neither does the rest of your comment.

For your information, the elderly man was visiting his family. Something he does twice a year.

Hey look - my moniker came back! No idea how ...

Anywho, ya gotta love these law and order trumpists. A 91 year old beaten with a brick - first thing out of their mouth “is he here legally? If not, oh well” Babies and toddlers taken away from parent and housed in windowless cages “too bad, so sad”.

Trump pardons law breaker sheriff and law breakers who commandeered and destroyed government property — “good on ya, Mr. President, God Bless you!!” You just can’t make this stuff up!

possumlady, loved looking at your blogs. Loved the cats. I was the proud friend of two beautiful marmalade cats, a male and a female. Both of them lived 20 years. After the male died, I didn't have the heart to get another one, too painful to lose my pals. Now I'm in a condo association that doesn't allow pets. Well, I do have a pet rock, Pierre.

As for Trump, he especially appeals to goons, thugs, and questionable "Christians."

Aww, that’s too bad you live in a pet restricted condo. I could never live without me kitties 🐱. I love dogs too but will need to wait until I retire to adopt another one. I certainly understand the loss being too painful. For me, it’s just the circle of life. I’ve taken in so many strays over the years — in fact the first one I took in, in 2001, Sweet Pea is still alive! Now blind and with kidney disease, he keeps purring up a storm. Others I’ve taken in may have lasted only months before I had to put them down. But I made sure each one felt loved, had enough to eat, and was well taken care of until the end...
