Oh that's because he's a racist and he always has been. Thought you knew
Like how he found out they were innocent and still thought they should be in jail? Like how he asked the black reporter to set up a meeting with the black caucus because he thinks they all know each other? Like how every time that he's accused of being racist he has either Ben Carson or Omarosa standing behind him at the press conference as to say "see, I have black friends so I can't be racist". Like how he put Ben Carson in charge of HUD because U stands for Urban which is just code for "black"? And so on and so forth.
Hypocrisy is at the core of his world view so this is utterly irrelevant to him and his supporters. We're in a new paradigm now.
You can't be a hypocrite if you're always lying, Jerry.
The futility of pointing out Trump's lies and bullshit...it's wearying. Everyone knows he's lying, even the ones who trust him totally.
The trick is convincing them that his lying is wrong, even when they're indifferent to it. That's a long term project, given that politicians and journalists have been legitimizing political lies for decades.
Isn't this precisely why he was elected and ~30% of this stupid ass country still supports him? I mean, this is what most of the people that voted for him wanted.
No, I think what a portion of that percentage wanted was to see 'a kick in an entirely different direction'
..which they got
but a 'devastatingly negative' kick; nowhere near any of the 'different perspective governing' they were likely 🤞 hoping for
which to be honest is pretty reckless & stupid to vote that way for that kind of idiot.
E: 'person' to 'idiot'
And what parts of this weren't known before the election?
Emoluments. 2. The designed role of three co-equal branches of government. 3. His attacks on the press. 4. I think the biggest is his attempt to re-ignite the differences that led to the US Civil War rather than working to unite the nation. There's more, I am sure.
when 1 drops out, whatever who cares, at 5 that's gotta be embarrassing, but when 16 cancel that's gotta start being a serious hit to their bottom line.
how many charity events do they even have from different charities in a year?!
Why were they there in the first place? Do these charities ONLY cater to rich fascist republicans?
What i dont understand is why didnt they pull out when we found out they were taking money from charities while saying they didnt
The more alarming part is that these fools were wasting charitable money on that over-priced venue to begin with.
Also, when Trump destroyed the beautiful Bonwit Teller building to build his ugly Trump Tower, he broke a promise to allow the Metropolitan Museum to save some of its Art Deco details
Trump's word means absolutey jack shit.
That's a very good point. But the statues issue is another attempt by Trump to distract his support of Nazis to an issue most conservatives feel is a legitimate argument. DONT TAKE THE BAIT! Focus on the real issue of Trump White House endorsing terrorism by white nationals.
No, it doesn't. It just means the exact opposite of what he says. "I didn't collude with Russia, promise." translates to, "I am totally in bed with the Russians."
TIL scared crying neo nazis are my fetish.
I think this is a trap. He gave out his phone number so he would receive threats that would allow him to push a violent left narrative.
It's definitely a trap. If you read the pdf and listen to the discord meeting that was leaked of them planning the meetup, they specifically say that the whole point was to garner sympathy for white nationalism and white supremacy. This is most definitely a sympathy tactic, an attempt at damage control after the attack that was not planned.
It may be intentional but it will not garner sympathy. The narrative around this video that I've seen is that he's a scared little shit who is terrified of consequences.
Nazis and the extreme racist right (KKK, skinheads, Christian Identity, etc) fetishize hyper-masculinity to a very large extent, and they often include emotional stoicism or 'hardness' in their idea of it. The fact that this guy released a video of him crying won't sit well with those people.
People might not be surprised to learn that extremist christianity is at the core of the white supremacy movement. Gott Mit Uns.
All these councils did not do any work or meet since the day they were founded. They were created for the express purpose of making it look like all these business / professional / community leaders were endorsing Trump. Now that this has back fired, he is disbanding the ones that are not praising him. This is the most dysfunctional narcissistic president ever and outside of a tight family run business (aka: a dictatorship) this isn't how to effectively run anything, and people in business know that.
A few business leaders have resigned for legitimate moral reasons, good for them, but once someone said it out loud, the rest were realizing that they were on a council that had no purpose other than polishing Donald's knob credentials. A mass exodus was going to happen anyway. Meanwhile the evangelical crowd will be putting "served on President's council" on their resumes for decades because they are desperate for any reflected credibility they can get, it is their only product.
"Islamic extremist is to Islam as KKK is to Christianity."
Edit: This is a quote from "The West Wing". The quote is out of context however it's still valid even when reversed. The episode is called that was aired after 9/11.
It's hard to argue with people who believe they have God on their side.
So... Trump stands with Russia, who interfered in the election. And Trump stands with White Nationalists, Nazis, and the Confederacy. Furthermore, the Republican party is still standing with Trump. What can we conclude from this?
The Republican party will support anyone and anything that will get them into power. Period. The line keeps getting pushed every day and every day I keep thinking, "This has to be the last straw. This has to be where the Republican party breaks ranks and turns on Trump." Nope. Just pure disappointment. Every. Goddamned. Day.
Tax cuts for the rich, healthcare cuts for the poor.
Even if we have to stand with Nazis.
You can conclude what we in Europe have been telling you guys for a long time. You didn't believe us at the time, and I suspect you still don't. And you don't want to hear it.
But it's the simple truth - Americans are fucking stupid.
Not all of you, of course. But the American electorate is collectively so stupid it voted in the manifestation of the negative aspects of the American stereotype as its president. That's got to mean something.
But the American electorate can't really be blamed for its stupidity either. Your public education system has been dismatled over decades, and as a result, a disproportionately large percentage of its students are now dumb as fuck, and wouldn't know critical thinking if it smacked them in the face with a logic textbook.
And no, I don't "hate America". I like America, that's why this is so upsetting. I want you guys to keep being the most influential country in the world, because the alternatives are much worse.
So, seriously guys - get your shit together. We're rooting for you.
Sincerely, some random Swede on the net.
Trump doesn't stand with America or Americans
Super callous, fragile racist, extra braggadocios.
Super callous fragile racist sexist Nazi POTUS

Great image, and yet, within 20minutes of posting it's already outdated.

Damn, I made this last night back when there were and had to quickly cobble together the other two before posting, and now it's old news again.
If Reddit does anything these groups will play the victim of thought policing and accuse Reddit of being against free speech.
A news organization needs to get the Reddit CEO to make a statement about all of this and how they plan to respond.
Here's a collection of support for hitting protestors with cars from T_D threads.
basecanadian in response to this "If there ever was a case for the 2A... here it is. Overrun by people who seem to hate your country and citizens, and your own police are too cucked to stop it."
A car can be a weapon in that case... just saying
GTA prepared me for this, if they are dumb enough to play on the highway they are asking to get hit.
fuzzyslippersz23 in response to the above
this, would run them over. its self defense at this point
ohhshitwaddup420 in response to specialofficerdoofy
Gonna buy an on f-150 junker truck and keep a plow on it in case this ever happens near me others in the thread
Soft. Those people are soft. No police. No need. They are in the street. Wreck the first couple who dare go into traffic and the rest will think twice and stop.

Run these fuckers over.
Run them over.

Look how pussy those cars are! I swear I wouldn't stop no matter what.
donkey_democrat on BLM blocking a highway
I realize it may catch you a criminal charge but discharging a firearm in the air may effectively scatter them.
Either that or roll your vehicle close to them and bait them to attack it, then use that to plow through them.
President_dominy on a protester getting hit by a car in 2016
If I saw this in front of me on an interstate highway I would have a fucking free for all. I might even throw her in reverse.
This entire thread is cancer lots of calls for running protestors over, several videos of people being hit by cars shared: http://archive.fo/7B2Ip. I'm not archiving each comment below as the entire thread is archived.

Crash Test Dummies. We have finally found a use for the unemployable antifa cunts. Take your time. Make sure you don't miss any ... Yep. And human reaction time is about 0.30 seconds. Going slow ensures time to turn into, er ... away from all obstructions in the road. Reminds me. Need to get the snowplow sharpened.
Yes, first slow down and exercise "due care." Make sure you aim your vehicle accurately, before stepping on the gas and plowing through communists! NO BRAKES!

like if the protestor wound up on your hood and their corpse landed in the other state?
I want them to use their supermajority to pass a law allowing us to run over Democratic politicians too
when questioned if serious, he says
Are you looking for /sub/cuckold? <-- It's that way

Can you? I'd love to run over some stupid fucks who think they can get in the way of my driving by blocking the road.
Edit1: Adding others from below. Edit2: deleted, the additional added links made it appear as if I was saying all of these were directly alluding to Charlottesville. Edit3: this appears to being gaining traction. Please don't guild this comment. Send the couple of dollars to the ACLU or UNICEF instead.
Edit4: adding more.

oh man, it's double fucked up if he couldn't he thinks he is just going to smash some commies and WHAM! goodbye front end.
Yeah exactly, at this point it makes no sense not to ban this type of speech on Reddit. They've already censored forms of hate speech, that should've been the difficult part to get past.
one of the first comments i saw was a guy trotting out the tired old argument that the klan used to be dems... you know ... before the 60s when they switched...
Can't say that bud. Mentioning the Southern Strategy in /r/conservative is a bannable offense.
One of the very few politicians willing to speak plainly about the disintegration of our country.
I got banned for saying that one of their memes was only Facebook quality.
