What the fuck do you rely on them for, Trumpy? Your money? Support? A place to hide when you're heading to prison?

 

Raw anger just after vacation.   Sorry to see that.

 

Take a few deep breaths and try to get some exercise.

Nice to see that the far left Democratic mobs are still suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, an apparently incurable disease. 

 

@socerers_apprentice: Come on, this is the crowd that doesn't want accuracy or evidence when it comes to their propaganda- it just has to sound good to them and they'll believe anything and re-post it.

Accuracy and evidence? From a Trumpette, you are unbelievable.

 

As you can see from his avatar, he doesn't have a head, which explains a lot about his postings and political slant ;)

"US President Donald Trump has suggested "rogue killers" could be behind the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey."

 

Quote

Speaking to reporters after a phone call with King Salman, he said the Saudi leader had firmly denied knowing what had happened to Mr Khashoggi.

 

And he absolutely believes him. Just like he believes (in) Putin...

@Janx Spirit, Trump doesn't believe them.  He believes their money.

 

And a loud Thank You! to Dashiell Hammett, who put those words in Sam Spade's mouth.

The "believe" was very tongue in cheek but you are spot on with the money thing. The motivation is a 150 billion arms sales deal, if I recall correctly  (the details are sickening).

Fuckface cannot keep his foot out of his mouth. After being found out on his lie that family separation wasn't a planned policy, he's now doubling down. Even after he has been repeatedly shown that this works against him. Oh, and his quip about chain migration, he was all for it for Melania and his Russian clients in Florida so, again, fuck him and all his sycophantic, xenophobic asshole followers.

President Trump advocated on Saturday for the controversial policy of separating families that cross into the U.S. illegally, saying that fear of being separated from children deters some immigrants.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Mr. Trump warned that adults are using children to cross into the U.S. from Mexico.

 

“If they feel there will be separation, they don’t come,” he said. “You’ve got some really bad people out there.”

Attempts to increase deterrence—including the Trump administration’s controversial family separation policy that was abandoned in June—haven’t been effective in slowing the influx of families.

A record number of asylum-seeking families has overwhelmed border agents and immigration authorities. Border Patrol facilities are crowded with newly arrived families, bed space at family detention centers in Texas is at a premium and immigration court backlogs are growing.

Migrant children separated from their parents under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy frequently spent days in government facilities designed for short-term use as the Department of Homeland Security struggled to track and reunify families, according to a report released this month by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General.

 

Since children can’t be held in criminal custody, more than 2,000 children were separated from their parents at the border in May and June, prompting widespread criticism from members of both parties before Mr. Trump ultimately rolled back the policy at the end of June.

 

“Chain migration is bad,” Mr. Trump told reporters. “If you take a look at the lottery system, that’s bad.”

Mr. Trump reiterated his preference for a merit-based immigration system, saying “a vast majority of the country agrees.”

The President calls a citizen fake news and horseface, while his wife whines about being bullied for wearing an insulting coat when going to see

the children her husband tore away from their parents.

I'm starting to suspect that the guy that cheated on his third wife with a pornstar* might just be a bit of a misogynist. (*paid off pornstar)

An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

 

The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters - the rich, the poor, the malignant and the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don't...

 

That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought "Fine."

 

That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay."

 

That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, "No problem."

 

That when he made up stories about seeing Muslim-Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, "Not an issue."

 

That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn't care, you chirped, "He sure knows me."

 

That when you heard him illustrate his own character by telling that cute story about the elderly guest bleeding on the floor at his country club, the story about how he turned his back and how it was all an imposition on him, you said, "That's cool!"

 

That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw.

 

That when you heard him brag that he doesn't read books, you said, "Well, who has time?"

 

That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn't commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, "That makes sense."

 

That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, "Yes!"

 

That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man's coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, "What a great guy!"

 

That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, "Thumbs up!"

 

That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, "That's the way I want my President to be."

 

That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they're supposed to be regulating and you have said, "What a genius!"

 

That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, "That's smart!"

 

That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was the middle of water and you have said, "That makes sense."

 

That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, "falling in love" with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, "That's statesmanship!"

 

That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids. has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas - he explains that they’re just “animals” - and you say, “well, ok then.”

 

That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise.

 

What you don't get, Trump supporters in 2018, is that succumbing to frustration and thinking of you as stupid may be wrong and unhelpful, but it's also...hear me...charitable.

Because if you're NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are *less* flattering.

As it turns out, we don't need no stinking wall after all -

President Donald Trump on Thursday threatened to shut the U.S.-Mexico border, claiming without evidence that several Central American countries are allowing “many criminals” to head to the U.S.

Trump, in a series of tweets, said he would “call up” the military to close the border if Mexico fails to “stop this onslaught.” ...
