So this is a total repost from Facebook, but I have free time right now and I’d love to hear you Trumpsters respond to any of these since you don’t like me calling you out. I deleted a couple of points for space. The post:

A person asked the question, “Why are people so hostile towards President Trump

A.) He lies. A LOT. Politifact rates 69% of the words he speaks as “Mostly False or worse” Only 17% of the things he says get a “Mostly True” or better rating. That is an absolutely unbelievable number. How he doesn’t speak more truth by mistake is beyond me. To put it in context, Obama’s rating was 26% mostly false or worse, and I had a problem with that. Many of Trump’s former business associates report that he has always been a compulsive liar, but now he’s the President of the United States, and that’s a problem. And this is a man who expects you to believe him when he points at other people and says “They’re lying”

B.) He’s an authoritarian populist, not a conservative. He advances regressive social policy while proposing to expand federal spending and federalist authority over states, both of which conservatives are supposed to hate.

C.) He pretends at Christianity to court the Religious Right but fails to live anything resembling a Christ-Like Life.

D.) His nationalist “America First” message effectively alienates us and removes us from our place as leaders in the international community.

F.) He couldn’t pass a 3rd-grade civics exam. He doesn’t’ know what he’s doing. He doesn’t understand how international relations work, he doesn’t understand how federal state or local governments work, and every time someone tries to “Run it like a business” it’s a spectacular failure. See Colorado Springs’ recent history as an example. The Short, Unhappy Life of a Libertarian Paradise And that was a businessman with a MUCH better business track record than Trump. We are talking about a man who lost money owning a freaking gambling casino.

G.) He behaves unethicaly and always has. As a businessman, he constantly left in his wake unpaid contractors and invoices, litigation, broken promises, whatever he could get away with.

H.) He is damaging our relationships with our best international friends while kissing up to nations that do not have our best interests in mind. To his question “Wouldn’t’ it be great to have better relations with Russia?” The answer is Yes. But it is RUSSIA who needs to earn that, who must stop doing the things that are damaging to that relationship, or we are simply weaker for it.

I.) He has never seen a shortcut he didn’t like, and you can’t take shortcuts in government. “Nuclear Option, Remove the Filibuster, I’ll change the Constitution by Executive Order…Don…what happens when you remove the filibuster and the other side retakes the majority in the Senate? Suddenly want that filibuster back? What happens if you manage to change the Constitution by Executive Order and an Anti-2A President wins the next election?

J.) He behaves and has always behaved as an unabashed racist. Yes, I’ve seen your favorite meme that claims he was never accused of racism before the Democrats…Absolutely false. Donald Trump’s long history of racism, from the 1970s to 2019 See the Central Park 5, the lawsuits and fines resulting from his refusal to lease to black tenants, the 1992 lost appeal trying to overturn penalties for removing black dealers from tables, his remarks to the house native American affairs subcommittee in 1993. The man sees and treats racial groups of people as monoliths.

K.) He is systematically steamrolling regulations specifically designed to keep a disaster like the 2007 subprime mortgage crisis from happening again.

L.) He speaks and acts like a demagogue. He sees the Legislative and Judicial branches of government as inconveniences, blows up at criticism no matter how deserved and actively tries to countermand constitutional processes, not to mention attempts to blackmail and coerce people who are saying negative things about him

M.) His choices for top positions, with the exception of Gen. Mattis, who is a gem, have been horrendous. A secretary of Education without a resume that would get her hired as a small town grammar school principal, A secretary of Energy who didn’t know the Department of Energy was responsible for nuclear reserves, an EPA head whose biggest accomplishments to date had been suing the EPA on multiple occasions, an FCC head who while working for Verizon actively lobbied to kill net neutrality, and an Attorney General who thinks pot is “nearly as bad as heroin” and asked Congress for permission to go after legal pot businesses in states where it is legal. (There goes that great Republican States rights rally cry again, right? *Crickets*) An Interim AG after Firing his First AG who’s appointment is probably unconstitutional.

N.) He denies scientific fact. Ever notice that the only people you hear denying climate change are politicians and lobbyists? 99% of actual scientists studying the issue agree that it’s real, man-made and caused by greenhouse gasses. Ever notice that every big disaster movie starts with a bunch of politicians in a room ignoring a scientist’s warning?

0.) He does not have the temperament to lead this nation. He is Thin Skinned, childish, and a bully, never mind misogynistic, boorish, rude, and incapable of civil discourse.

P.) He still does not understand that the words he speaks, or tweets, are the official statements of the United States and he is squandering that authority.

Just wondering if you guys have a response to any of that? To me it is a summation of everything that is wrong with him. I suspect you guys know it but want so desperately to “own the libs” that you would literally sell your souls and the principles you claim to have to do it. Feel free to argue with any of it.

Because the liberal media, Hollywood, and the liberal deep state have been doing everything they can to keep the narrative that Trump is the bogeyman. They wasted 40 million in a 2 year inquisition just knowing they could get him impeached and that failed.

Now that they can’t get him out with a political Coup d’état, they are now in a position where they are going to have to put up one of the 20 buffoons running on free shit for everyone and Trump’s the bogeyman and get another electoral college beat down.

So you didn’t answer a single point…no surprise for a cult member. And you wonder why people think you are a hateful fraud with no principles. You can’t stand on anything except that you oppose one political team and will side with anything, no matter how wrong, that does that. Sad!

Also that 40 million dollar “inquisition” paid for itself with Manafort alone, never mind the 20 plus other felony indictments and proving what you all tried to deny all along…that the Russians helped your boy win because they knew it would weaken our country. Oh and that they tried to get the Trump campaign to cooperate, but the campaign was too disorganized and incompetent to succeed in colluding to a criminal level despite repeated attempt by several folks to include the President’s son.

Oh don’t even start on the fact that if it wasn’t for a stupid rule of the justice department, the President of the United States would be indicted on felony obstruction of justice charges. Remember when the supposed rule of law party would have been upset by that? Can’t go against the cult leader though.

BTW Trump’s golfing has cost hundreds of millions of dollars (that he funnels to his own clubs) but yet you are upset at 40 million spent? Lol.
Don’t look at the trillions of debt your boy and team have piled on your boy scouts…you might really be upset then.

Remember when the tea party cared about debt??? Funny what changes when the Kenyan Muslim isn’t in office…but it has nothing to do with race right?

“Any” I take it included they actual original question posted and not a recap of the Rachael Maddow conspiracy theory show. You just don’t like the answer.

If it will make you happy I respond to another “any” just for you:

He behaves and has always behaved as an unabashed racist

His Ex-Black Girlfriend that he DATED for 2 years seems to disagree:

I see a lot of broad statements and assertions with no specifics and little substance beyond the assertions.

Those points that are offered as evidence are flawed.For example, a business man in office in Colorado Springs has nothing to do with President Trump. In his point, he’s saying that running government like a business brings disaster, points out this guy and says Trump wasn’t even as good at business. By his assertion, we could then expect Trump to do better than this guy - except that they really aren’t related to each other at all. It also ignores the fact that recent economic data pretty much defeats his whole assertion of disaster.

As another example, the claim about 99% (the often used claim is actually 97%) of climate scientists agree is flawed. First of all, there’s not even a definitive list of climate scientists to use as a basis for such a claim. There also was not any scientific study of climate scientists. That number came from one guy saying that 97% of the studies he reviewed were in agreement - kind of like 4 out of 5 dentists recommending a particular gum.  Anyway, many of those he included did not openly say they agreed - he extrapolated some, and some have said their work was not represented accurately. Finally, as a guy being so scientifically focused, the writer should know and understand that science does not determine fact by consensus and correlation. Science is based on proof - kind of like with the 99% of scientists agreeing the Earth was flat.

I know it was a Facebook post and the writer chose not to defend all points (I guess he chose, but maybe he thought he was substantiating them),  but it’s not very convincing.

I find it interesting that Pines didn’t share the FB link as a reference.  He links everything.  It looks like just a bunch quotes that have been googled and lumped into a big post to see if anything sticks.

Facebook post I just saw in my feed that had probably been copied and shared a zillion times like all that stuff…I’m sure you can find it by looking. I’m not gonna bother. It was a copy and paste as I laid around in the middle of the night due to time change.

As to that last post, you are right. It is funny how attacking 4 minority congresswomen and telling them to go back to their countries has removed the attention from pedophile elites right as news was coming out on how the President hung out with Epstein and was quoted as saying that Epstein liked them young. Even worse, can you imagine voting for someone who was accused of raping a 13 year old at Epstein’s place? Oh wait. You did.

I cannot believe how easy this is sometimes.

I find it interesting how you conveniently omitted Bill Clinton among many others that are linked to Epstein. I’m sure that’s an simple oversight.

Dude, are you serious? You didn’t think I knew exactly what was referenced by buzzzard? Come on man. Why do you think I posted that picture?
You aren’t capable of understanding that but you want to have complex political discussions with me? I think insulting each other is more your speed, as it is with most Trumpsters.


Let’s get back to that.

Did you know that Bill Clinton hasn’t been president for almost two decades? The guy in the picture is right now…but it’s all a witch hunt. It’s all fake! Lol so stupid.
Also, did you know you voted for the scumbag that had a private party with just him and Epstein at his resort filled with dozens of young women?

I think it is because you are super concerned about the well being of women. I also think it’s because he is a great Christian leader! LMFAO.

If multiple people are indicted I feel certain that there will be some Ds and Rs. All that are guilty should get the proper punishment for their deeds. That includes a sitting president (impeach and convict) or past president. I’ll just wait and see how it unfolds and continue to choose country over party.

See I can agree with that. Not so sure the rest of the Republican Party does though. Crimes only are crimes if Democrats do it to most of them.

See Trump’s Times Square comment for a reference.
