Listen up all u liberal presidential candidates, putting blame on Trump for the shootings in Ohio and El Paso will not win u the presidential candidacy for the Democratic Party!! What arrogance! I am sick and tired of the blame game. Buck up or shut up!!
The above is the post of a friend of mine. A relatively intelligent, God fearing person. Which I don't understand it at all. I have lots of friends who feel this way. And they're decent people (at least I've always thought so), but I cannot understand it. I cannot understand how a man like Trump, a liar, a cheat, an adulterer, a racist, and misogynist, a dangerous fool who fans the flames of hatred, gets a pass from these supposedly normal, decent people? HOW CAN THAT BE?
The comments that followed the above post were supportive, as follows:
I totally agree with you.
ALL MADE BY HISPANICS!!!
AND ONE VOICE OF REASON …
There have been more mass shootings this year than we have had days this year. 26 mass shootings in 8 years is too many, but a far cry from what we are dealing with now. Trump fans the flames of the white supremacists and normalizes their activities. He is not the only problem, but he repeatedly pours gas on the fire. I'm not talking about the election, I am just talking about dealing with the violence in this country.
Here's the truth. Donald Trump is a racist. PERIOD. If you can't see it, if you make excuses for him, if you are constantly spouting the "but what about Obama?" argument you have been hypnotized by FOX. You MUST stop watching FOX News and branch out. I watch both (and believe me, it's not easy for me to watch FOX) but in all honesty, FOX RARELY reports what the other stations are reporting. For example, during the Mueller hearings FOX only showed commentary and clips of Mueller stumbling and commentary supporting the ideology of FOX news. No footage of Mueller emphatically stating that Russia absolutely tampered in the election and "they're doing it as we sit here" and he also stated that the Trump campaign welcomed foreign interference in 2016. None of that was covered on FOX.
MSNBC and CNN are slanted to the left, yes. BUT NOT LIKE FOX. I saw Chris Wallace on FOX Sunday morning interviewing Mick Mulvaney and he actually called Mulvaney out on his lies! Which was amazing! And Shepherd Smith is one newscaster who is actually FAIR AND BALANCED. The rest are merely shills for Trump and the GOP.
And IF it is all fake news, then why is YOUR news the only source that is NOT fake? And your only source is FOX. And FOX is beyond fake. They (in their words) are not news, they are an entertainment show.
Tucker Carlson says white supremacy is a hoax. Tucker, there were three shootings in the last two weeks all conducted by right wing white supremacists! You might want to do a little reading on the subject. Like "Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass" (whom Donald J. Trump thinks is still alive) or "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" and get yourself some edumacation. Yeah, I spelled it wrong on purpose. White supremacy is not a hoax. The Russian interference in our elections is not a hoax. The only hoax is that orange thing sitting in the oval office. HE is a hoax. And you all know that if this were Obama we were talking about, you'd already have begun impeachment proceedings. And just an FYI … remember when the entire GOP signed a pledge to block ANY AND EVERYTHING Obama tried to accomplish? YEAH.
Only time will tell what happens to Trump. Probably nothing. I don't know why I care so much. I haven't written a lot about this because it's just me saying the same old things over and over again and nothing makes a difference because everyone is so confused, misinformed, and no one knows what the truth is and most are too lazy to read and find out. READ THE MULLER REPORT. Yeah, some of it is boring, but a lot of it is like reading a spy novel and in the first 20 pages I must have said WOW! fifteen times! If you come away from that still thinking Trump is a great guy, well … then there really is no hope for you.
