Hillary's FaceBook page is filled with trolls...hardly any supporters...WHY???

Why is that??? I don't like that....I'm then compelled to answer these fools...try to add a little balance to her page.

I'm just so disgusted and ANGRY that anyone can think he is worthy of praise.....I've stayed off FB for the last couple of months because I just get enraged...I cannot help getting enraged.

5. Easy

Because they're from the sites of 4chan and reddit aka the manchild, crybaby, no life side of the internet. Nothing better to do with their time. Supporters are there, but we have all have lives and can't spend it all on Facebook arguing with deplorables.

I still don't like to see it....but it will not sway my confidence that the American people will choose correctly on November 8th.

14. Of course

Here's the thing. The people that will choose wisely don't argue with these idiots. We socialize and talk amongst ourselves on sites like Facebook. These right wing turds have nothing better to do with their precious time. They could, like Obama said. Could go and actually work for their candidate and try to get out the vote by going door to door or phone banking. But...they rather site on their asses and troll Facebook, Twitter, etc. It's fucking sad to see our society come down to this. But it's easy for these nutter butters to sit behind a computer screen and talk smack.

10. I think there are several pages for Hillary

Yeah, lots of negative stuff, but I always post something positive. You see it on the White House page too. Haters gonna hate. We can only hope their numbers are dwindling.

I don't really understand why some posters feel the need to ridicule facebook use.

Geez, people, lighten up.

12. I share your frustration.

I don't know why the campaign doesn't moderate the comments. I don't have the time or desire to engage with any of them, but I have started my own experiment to find out if Facebook has a limit on number of people you are allowed to block. So far, no.

16. I've given up on the Hillary page...but in my own feed people feel free to post lies...

 

people from high school especially. I've stayed off FB for the last 3 months because I know I'll get into with people...but as the election draws near I've been back on the last few days and I'm sorry but I'm calling people out in my feed...calling them out with facts. I just cannot allow the bullshit to go unrefuted. All these assholes from high school pardoning the pussy talk...I have to ask them have you been groped by a man? By your boss? By some random stranger???

Fortunately I don't have many FB friends who are political. Those that are have already been unfollowed. For me, life's too short to keep toxic people in it.

23. You know, we are the ACTUAL Silent Majority. We're just waiting.

I've seen it all over. People get driven out by trolls and fanatics and stop arguing because it's not arguing, it's abuse. But we are talking to one another, and we are working on the ground, and we will stop them with our votes. I'm confident of that.

I wish I was more confident about the aftermath. I used to think it was all blow but I now think there are enough of them who might take action to be considered truly dangerous.

four years. I don't even know if the page is still up. I have no intention of ever using any kind of social media. I'm just not that into it. 🤔🙄

29. Close FB and do something productive.

I'm a precinct committee person for the Democratic party in my county. Today I'm walking a turf of 60 homes (all registered Dems) to hand out slate cards and answer questions about voting.

Don't sit on the sidelines and fret. Do something. Call your local Democratic office or Hillary HQ and offer to volunteer-- they'll welcome your help.

34. I've hardly ever used Facebook (closed my account years ago)...

...so I can't respond to that.

But what I can report is that I am on Twitter (only social media I use) and am very actively pushing truthful articles, information, etc. about HRC. I've seen a pattern. Back in August and September, there were far more Trump supporters posting their crazy sh*t and nasty memes than now. And the "deplorables" (the ones who actually changed their Twitter handles to add "Deplorable" in front of their names) have dwindled.

I'm not BSing. I've seen a shift.

If you are not on Twitter, I'd suggest you hop on there and follow some of the best promoters of HRC/detractors of Trump, including Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, David Plouffe, Jim Messina, Tommy Vietor, Kurt Eichenwald, Sopan Deb, etc.

Also on Twitter, there are media folks in the traveling press pool for the Orange Shit Stain who are revealing more and more about his rally attendance lies. At this past week's rally in Cincinnati, Trump claimed 25K people were in the arena and 7K people were trying to get in, but in reality, half of the second level was completely empty.

Go here: https://twitter.com/search?q=cincinnati%20trump&src=typd and scroll down to Nick Corasaniti, ‏@NYTnickc and watch his video. He's pro-Trump, so ignore that, but watch the video in large screen. You will see with your very own eyes that that top level is EMPTY.

I realize that the size of rallies has ZERO correlation to voter turnout, but the point I'm trying to make is that all the lies of YUUGGEE rallies is just that...lies. There is no enthusiasm for Trump (as all polls indicate). It's a mirage.

37. I saw a "balcony" at a rally on tv that was pretty empty and my eyes widened.....

 

I'm going to see on twitter now if it's the same one. I have twitter and I share anti trump pro hill tweets but I'm really not on it much...maybe that is where I will focus for the next few weeks....Thank you.

I think it's a very big deal if in fact there are less people attending rallies...yes that would make me very pleased indeed.
