Just kind of musing here, but it's driving Trump voters NUTS that they can't enjoy their victory.
Everywhere I turn, from Facebook to comments sections on news sites, they're ranting and rehashing all their anti-Hillary, anti-Obama nonsense. These are the sorest winners I've ever seen. The mainstream news media keeps bringing up uncomfortable stories about Trumps staffing picks, his financial dealings, the Russian influence, mixed support from Republicans. And the entertainment media like SNL isn't allowing him any kind of typical honeymoon period (they went a lot easier on Dubya at this point). Normalizing Trump isn't taking.
It just seems weird that so many Trump voters are unable to sit back and say 'hey, we won.' Victory isn't enough as long as the rest of us don't fall in line. Think maybe they're trying to convince themselves of something?
If it was just them, I'd be laughing my ass off. Unfortunately, I have to live on the same planet.
His supporters will turn on him just as soon as he 'fixes' Social Security and 'phases out' Medicare. They won't have enough coming in to from Social Security to pay for their Ryancare insurance premiums.
He's on with Tweety now trying to dance around his God Emporer's many business entanglements.
It burns them that they're not, and they're not the kind to look into their own souls deeply and wonder if just maybe there's a reason so many outwardly decent-seeming people are opposed to them.
and they are so oppressed, bless their hearts.
There's a big difference between being scared of your guns being taken away and being scared of being gunned down in the street by police
is that Trump is one of the only president-elects ever, if not the only one, to break all the promises that got him elected while being president-elect.
they wanted anger and hate. why would they ruin their own victory by being happy?
That's what I was thinking. What victory? trump is illegitimately assuming the title of President-elect.
...it's not Mexicans, it's Muslims. If it's not Muslims, it's liberals. If it's not liberals... sorry, it's ALWAYS liberals...with their gun-grabbing ways and those dad-blasted universities and colleges that teach all that liberalism. There are gay wedding cakes and sacred zygotes under attack. And there's always a war on Christmas, too. Don't forget the drive-by media leftist-socialist-communist-agenda and hom-O-sexual agenda and the left-wing agenda and last summer's invasion of Texas by Obummer and his use of actual facts. LIBS have the gall to use real facts!!1! Unfair! Plus gun-grabbing since 1963. Plus Benghazzzzzzi! Lock somebody, anybody up! Hail Trump!
But now, their savior's shady dealings are bubbling up, there are conflicts of interest and Jesus it should be so bad.
It's not easy being a wingnut, they have to crank up the outrage hourly. They haven't had a happy day since... whenever. Everyone and everything is suspicious, dangerous, and trampling on their U.S.S. (sic) Constitution which only applies to white Christians.
I don't know ANYONE who wasn't a Con supporter change to supporting him after the election, nd I doubt I ever will.
That's not who we are. Cons are judging us by themselves yet again!
Just because they're right-wing authoritarians who fall in line behind some untrustworthy asshole doesn't mean we should have to, too. This is something that won't penetrate their thick skulls.
they are going out of their way to call liberals "crybabies" and saying Hillary is a criminal still. I think they had this bizarre fantasy that Trump was going to be bowed down to and that they would be there beside him as part of the "King's court".
To the emotion of hate, Hillary was a wonderful target for that need ,now that Hillary is no longer a player they cant stop bashing her.
They've been whining and belly aching for 8 years now ,its time for them to show us Dems how its done as they have all the power, i suspect they'll make a mess of it like they always do
It's a bad sign when you have to twist yourself into a Gordian knot to prove your point.
I'm hearing "didnt' think he'd really go after SS and Medicare".
Here's some similar discussion on the immigration front--
So it's damn the trumpedos and full steam ahead.
she is brainwashed by it all... even thinks he won in a landslide.
in order to deny the "evil Hillary" from being president.
This is going to be rough sailing... Trump will not have an easy time, I suspect. So that's good.
Partisan hacks who somehow convinced themselves that Hillary was worse, so they held their nose and voted for the imbecile.
Trump got the lowest percentage of the GOP primary vote in 40 years, and there was a significant Never Trump movement at one point, so he was hardly a universally beloved figure, even among conservatives. He got their votes because they're partisan idiots.
Or should we encourage purists?
Did they think that no one would question the ethics concerns of his massive worldwide businesses ?
Did they think that no one would remember his divide and conquer campaign?
Did they think that no one would question his collusion with Russia to hack Democratic politicians?
Did they think that everyone would be welcoming even though he lost the election by more than 3 Million votes?
LOL the most he gets is 2 years and it will be dog fights for both of them, he resigns in disgrace by year 2.
If ALL the Trump voters in 12 states combined were allowed to vote twice, they'd still be behind by far more votes than decided the electoral college.
that they're addicted to hate. I mean that's what they live for. I was speaking with a friend today and we are wondering what in the Hell is Rush going to talk about now?
Has gone full hate on Liberals /Democrats we are being set up or painted as the equivalent of Hitlers Jews IMO.How this man is allowed to spew such hate and delusion on public air waves is a mystery to me.
Tonight, CNN i think, interviewed some people at Trumps wisconsin Nuremberg rally. A woman was a true believer, but a guy actually sounded wistful and sad when asked if Trump will keep his promises about jobs. He sounded really sad when he said, "I hope so."
misery that their precious Cretin is bringing down upon our (and they will soon realize, their) world.
Their con-man pathelogical narcissist clod is destroying the country already and the oath hasn't even been taken.
(That is if he will even take the oath without demanding to change it to suit his lunacy.)
I never, in my worst nightmare thought I would see such idiocy, ignorance, arrogance and hate destroy my country so damned fast and potentially, completely.
I thought they would be doing the happy dance and enjoying their victory. Instead they act more like they lost, such sore winners I've never seen before either. My advice to them would be enjoy your victory, be happy you won because soon you'll have lots of reasons to be angry and to be crying.
Trump is a historical accident. A mistake.
The GOP platform seems to be "the opposite of what Democrats propose" for many of them.
