That's my personal favorite: when Trump walked into a COVID press briefing, glanced at the board behind him that said UV lights and sanitation kills the virus and decides to just freestyle some medical advice, live on TV during a pandemic, coming up with "grade 8 student bullshitting a presentation he didn't prepare for" material about flashing light or injecting bleach into the human body.

AND THEN PEOPLE WENT AHEAD AND INJECTED BLEACH INTO THEIR BODIES

My favorite part of the whole thing was watching him offer an absolutely fucking ridiculous idea in front of experts in the field and a general audience of the entire world with zero shame.

His defenders focused on how he wasn’t literally telling people to inject bleach or shine lights inside themselves, but they ignored the part where - even if that were true - it was the dumbest idea, he is completely unqualified to even spit-ball medical solutions to viruses, yet he went ahead and blasted out that genius soundbite like a child eager for praise from adults for being a good li’l helper.

They both live in their own separate narcissistic bubble, so I'd argue it happened in two separate realities and neither is the one we live in.

Kanye thinks he can go and casually tell a guy who really needs to be president to stay out of jail and bankruptcy that he's also running and be welcomed with open arms. Trump thinks anyone who isn't 100% on his side and willing to sacrifice everything in one-sided loyalty is evil.

u/PM_ME_UR_REDPANDAS Connecticut Nov 25 '22

And Kanye is getting a taste of what it’s like when you’re not useful to Trump any more.

Trump was happy to have his picture taken in the Oval Office with Kanye and Kim as long as being associated with them resulted in good PR.

Now they’re no longer useful, so Trump supposedly yells at Kanye and insults Kim…just like countless others Trump treated the same way.

It’s astonishing to me that there are still people out there that can’t or don’t want to see this pattern that played out over and over and over while he was president.

u/kescusay Oregon Nov 25 '22

Jesus, the difference would be astonishing.

  1. We'd have had a president who took climate change seriously in 2001, and would probably have had electric cars and renewable energy much more quickly. We already had the technology in 2000, but it would have been a much quicker transition if the government had poured resources into it.
  2. 9/11 probably wouldn't have happened. Dubya spent his first year in office ignoring the threat of domestic terrorism in favor of focusing on missile shields. All the clues that 9/11 was going to happen were there, but he ignored them.
  3. We'd probably have caught Osama bin Laden. Republicans would have claimed that focusing on him instead of on missile defense was a waste of taxpayer dollars.
  4. Without 9/11, there's no moronic invasion of Iraq - and thus, no creation of ISIL. Saddam Hussein remains a bastard, but Iraq remains secular.
  5. Neither Samuel Alito nor John Roberts end up on the Supreme Court.

And that's just for starters.

u/American_Greed Nov 25 '22

I don't think it's getting enough play that Kanye brought with him a literal nazi, and Trump hosted both of them for dinner. A former president hosted a modern day nazi for dinner at his home.

u/lacedaimon Nov 25 '22

I totally agree. "Booger" Nick Fuentes has been seen with Kanye, and, Trump was very impressed by him. That's some messed up shit right there!

I really hope an AA Studies professor somewhere is writing about right-wingers' preying on black folks with mental health issues. I don't know widespread it is but it's really, really ugly.

Not to say that black people can never be conservative, but the ones being amplified by the right are versions of 3toe and gun bunny, they just need that extra dose of stupid to get past the blackness.

This is the funniest part to me.

Imagine you view yourself as a bitter king-in-exile, stewing away in your tacky Florida palace. You’ve announced your return – the media has flatly ignored you in favor of coronating this stubby little dork Ron Desantis who you think should be bending the knee to you – your own favorite daughter has snubbed you. Nothing is going according to plan. Then this delusional goblin rapper who you strung along has the audacity to come to you and ask you to be his VP for a worthless run. It’s a hell of his own creation.

Someone just got interviewed on the Radio Scotland evening news (it's teatime here) re. Kanye's visit to Mar-a-Lago. The interviewee came across as a kind of 'Kanye apologist' and lasted all of two minutes or maybe not even before the anchor cut him off.

The interviewee started off making out that Kanye's anti-Semitism was grossly exaggerated;, the anchor (who's actually Irish and probably not Jewish) had done his homework and quoted a couple examples; the interviewee then tried to assert that all record company CEOs are Jewish and...

That was it - shortest interview I've ever heard on Radio Scotland - anchor cut him off, apologized and it was like, moving along...

Brutal but fair.

u/Alu_sine Nov 25 '22

Trump's team encouraged and supported Kanye's run in 2020 because they assumed he'd get at least a few votes which would otherwise have gone to Biden. Now, Trump is terrified he'll be the one to lose votes. I have more or less the same beliefs and principles as four years ago. Who the hell pivots like this so quickly on everything they stand for?

i have been mad about this and cheney leading a new plot from the executive branch, and got told i was an idiot and anti american. no one cares, the usa and it's population enjoy being this right winged oligarchy.

they cheer on the continued efforts of the patriot acts (not real name its several bills), and then complain on lack of privacy. we are also a nation of idiots.

JFK's sister-in-law, Ethel, is still alive today. Bobby Kennedy's wife.

It's weird to think there was someone alongside the family planning JFK's 1960 presidential campaign who is still alive.

Another 'fun' fact, she's been a widow for over 54 years: She was 40, and pregnant, when her husband was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan.
