Here's an idea

Someone create an inset next to Trump and his evening shit show. Find someone who signs. Have her or him translate through signing what Trump is actually saying rather than his own words. Gestures like a hand stroking a, I don't know, a baseball bat handle while rolling the eyes. When he turns a question over to another, the translation would be " I will get caught in too big a lie answering this one. Let's get an underling I can distance myself from to answer it. etc. etc.

The next time someone starts defending Trump...

Tell them we're coming up on that time when we all must sincerely reflect on that important question. Am I better off now than I was 4 years ago?

Trump's Socialism!

Let's talk strategy.
In order to win this country back, we have to stop thinking like Democrats and start thinking like swing voters. Trump has a persuasive tool in playing the socialism card. The fact is many don't like Socialism. What needs to be done is expose to the swing vote Trump's Socialism.
1. The FCC's ruling to end net neutrality. We the taxpayer paid for the internet with a bedrock principle the telecoms couldn't divide service speed to increase profits. They have it now thanks to Trump. What did we get in return. Nothing. Higher bills actually. Providers can chose what we see or can't see in a search. A government hand out to the telecoms.
2. Personal privacy. An inalienable right in the Constitution gone thanks to Trump. Service providers no longer have to keep our activity anonymous. They can sell our personal information attached to our activity. Corporate handout.
3. Thanks again to Trump people can no longer enter a class action suit against the banks. Massive giveaway from Trump.
4. Pollution restrictions lifted by Trump in return for nothing. Job creator? Hardly. Obama had job growth on a better trajectory than Trump while protecting our water and air.
5. His tax laws. Many corporations paying zero taxes while the deficit grows yet still enjoying all the benefits provided by the government- roads, military, firefighting, law enforcement and the like.
6.....any I've missed.
Mr. Bloomberg et al...use those ads to expose to swing voters that Donald J Trump is a socialist. The worst kind. A socialist for the powerful few born on the backs of the rest of us.
Yes. we already know this but the difference in the next election is showing the rest of the electorate Trump's Socialism.

Trump Idolator Syndrome

What are the symptoms? I'll start. Someone suffering from TID....

1. Rails against Socialism while backing the worst Corporate, Autocratic, Rich man's Socialist in history.


FOX f'd up

Collusion is too tough to prove. The Mueller report exonerates him in spite of the evidence put forth.
So ask yourselves.. would Donald have been better off just letting the investigation proceed without all the interference and obstruction? Firing Comey, steps to fire Mueller, condemning Sessions, replacing him with Barr, etc etc? The obstruction by Trump began after the investigation into Russian interference was under way. He should have kept his mouth shut, his phone in is pocket and let the investigation proceed. He would be free and clear. Instead, he had to meddle.

The real interesting part though is the roll the Neo-Nazi Media played in all this. Fox News, Limbaugh, Breitbart and the like. They goaded Trump. The NNM steered him to obstruct by waging war against the investigation. All out war with their labels, talking points and bogus conspiracy theories. Labels like Main Stream Media (MSM), Witch Hunt, Deep State and Trump Derangement Syndrome. Had FOX welcomed the special investigation to show there was no COLLUSION with the same fervor they fought it, the OBSTRUCTION wouldn't have occurred and Trump would be sitting a lot prettier today. Fox fouled up.

Could we get the narrative out there.

While families suffer, Trump and the Senate take measures to see the one getting paid this week is Deripaska. At least someone is getting paid.

We have to amend the message on the shutdown

We are keeping Trump's promise to make Mexico pay for the wall. Put him on the defensive. You guaranteed Mexico would pay for the wall Mr. Trump. "Guarantee, Promise , Count on it folks". Mexico will pay for the wall. Remember Benghazi,Benghazi Benghazi. Horrible, but it worked. This is honest. Mexico Mexico Mexico.
