2 years later it even got worse. 300k dead people worldwide, 80k of those in the US and president moron is still not wearing a mask, shaking hands, says TESTS ARE OVERRATED. You believe he can not go more dumb, but he can...and he will!

Honestly this seems almost tame compared to what Trump is doing now.

Author — Pat Morgan


Ah yes. *Donald J Trump:*
The "self made man" who had a million dollar bank balance by age eight
The “patriot” whose Daddy dodged his draft for him.
The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns.
The “genius” who hides his college grades.
The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 years.
The “playboy” who pays for sex.
The “Christian” who wants churches packed _(to worship him?)_ at the height of a pandemic.
The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity.
The “innocent man” who refuses to testify and prevents those who could exonerate him from doing the same.

*Trump Talk Translated:*
"Many People have told me" = Voices in my head
"A lot of people don't know" = I just learned
"Believe me" = I just lied _(optional; if omitted, it is implied)_
"In Fact ..." = I'm about to lie
"He's a great guy" = I will deny ever knowing this person after they begin to tell the truth about me
"MAGA" = Enriching me off American federal-tax-payers (whom I am proud *not* to be one of)
"Nobody knew" = Everyone knew except me
"Huge" = moderate to below average in size
"Loser" = someone who makes me feel inferior due to their talent or accomplishments
"Policy Briefing" = Fox and Friends, Hannity, Carlson or Alex Jones
"Reaching out to the people" = Rage-tweeting from the toilet
"Liar" = Someone who tells the truth about me
"Fake News" = True things said about me by others
"Locker room talk" = True things said about me by me

*Trump's Rules:*
Thou shalt have no other god before me. *
The purpose of the United States is to trickle wealth upwards.
The "elites" are the exception: they wear the mark of Cain, being defined as those wealthier than me who refuse to trickle wealth, or public flattery, Trumpwards.
The Attorney General, in particular, is to act as my personal Attorney, moreover the purpose of public servants, State Governors, and Local Governments is to serve my interests, at my pleasure. Those who refuse to serve my interests are to be considered the official, nominal "swamp".
The remainder form the *actual* swamp, which will be restocked regularly, with deletions of those insufficiently sycophantic/rabid.

* _This is the nearest Trump (like Stalin once he left the seminary) has ever got to being a Christian: they adopted this rule of engagement as their own._

Trump supporters: "I like him because he tells it like it is, not a lying politician"
Also Trump supporters: "He didn't really mean what he said"

George Washington couldn't tell a lie
Richard Nixon couldn't tell the truth.
Donald Trump cannot tell the difference

Who's here after Trump suggested injecting disinfectants for covid19?

I don't know why people call out John Oliver over topics like these! He is just saying the facts with a little humor mixed into it, and because of this, he and his staff are nearly impossible to prove wrong

The scariest part of this video is that as I’m watching it, in 2020, he is running for re-election

Me, 2017: That is awful!
Me, 2020: That was cute. At least there were no suggestions of shooting UV lights at lungs and nukes at hurricanes back then.

The sad thing is that since this video was put up on YouTube, the delusions of both Trump and his science-denying supporters have actually become both further divorced from reality, and more firmly held...

The President of the USA, supposedly the most powerful man on the planet, is retreating from reality at an accelerating rate.

"Now, I know we can sometimes feel you are the only person in the world, but as you can see here, there are actually many non-you people. We call those, 'other people' "

Laughed so hard I nearly choked. I think this is possibly the most meaningful thing ever said about #45.
