Since Donald Trump is still in the running–is still considered to be a “viable” candidate–I have decided to take it upon myself to create a weekly segment in which I tear him up like the piece of beef jerky that he is.
On this week’s segment of #TrumpedThursdays, we’re going to talk about how dumb he is and also how dumb his supporters are. Which is probably not a nice thing to say, because I’m sure some of his supporters are lovely people who aren’t nazis, but, like, most of them seem like they want to be nazis.
I don’t like nazis. I dislike them so much I refuse to capitalize the word, because I’m rebelling against their awfulness. That, or I’m lazy. I’ll leave that up to you to decide.
Anyhoo, a few weeks ago, an interesting article came out from Politico. Politico is, if you didn’t know this already, a slightly right-leaning political (GASP) publication.
Fun fact about me: Politico used to be my homepage.
Oh? That’s not a fun fact? Well, you shut your whore mouth, then, sassy internet commenter who doesn’t exist because all my commenters are awesome and not in the least bit whorish.
Since I have degrees in Political Science AND English, I feel like I’m probably the most perfectest person to write a piece talking about how and why Donald Trump and his Dumb Ass Supporters are Dumb.
(I’m drafting my Pulitzer speech based on that title alone. You’re welcome, world.)
The article basically says that the best predictor of whether or not you like Donald Trump is whether or not you want an authoritarian regime. Like, a dictatorship. Like hitler. (I didn’t capitalize his name because he’s a bastard and a shitty artist.)
See, authoritarians are like the Trolls of the Internet, but in real life and wielding actual influence. They get super hyper defensive about their candidate and like to alienate people and are aggressive to the point where you should be rightly worried that they’ve been injected with some, like, ancient sabertooth mating hormone.
Basically, all these people like Trump because he “says what he wants” and will “do whatever it takes,” which is regular politician speak for “IS FUCKING CRAZY AND ALSO LOOKS LIKE MAZ’S BUMHOLE.”
All the people who support Trump are fed up with the way the government “works.” And instead of, you know, doing the “responsible citizen” thing and voting out all the members of Congress that are impeding progress, they’d rather have Beef Jerky McButthole wipe his ass with the constitution and be done with it.
It’s really just American laziness at its most profound. These people want the gridlock to go away. But instead of doing any actual legwork themselves, they’ll just hand it over to Beef Jerky McButthole (that’s now his new name) and give up everybody’s rights in order to build a wall that will end up keeping us in instead of keeping people out.
Also, the amount of stupidity it requires for Trump to think that any member of any party would support him as president is mind-blowing. I’m pretty sure it would be the one time the country would be one-hundred percent united: nothing would get done under a Trump presidency, unless he somehow managed to get the branches of the military to agree with him.
Here’s to hoping that doesn’t happen.

As an American…I hate Nazis. As a German American….I hate them a lot, so anytime I hear how we should banned certain religions or build a wall, I just remember that I’m speaking English and not Salish (a Pacific Northwest Native American language). Why anyone follows a racist is beyond me. However, I think it is just a bunch of scared old white people. Now, excuse me, I’m off to eat some sushi and Pho.
If (God forbid) trump wins the presidential elections, I will have to decline a recent admission offer from an american university and stay back in my home country, giving up on my dreams, just because I am a muslim. 😦
Ugh, Trump is the worst. If he wins the presidential election, I’m going to move to a country where the president isn’t a horrible person.
I wasn’t able to get the comment button to work. I think Trump would probably get impeached within days of his inauguration. >
Let’s just pray it doesn’t get that far.
If it makes you feel any better, I was listening to an NPR story about how polls are horribly inaccurate. Very few actually care about science and accuracy, and many polls just guess what a rating would be based on what other sites–that have also guessed–would be. It was really interesting, especially since Trump loves to talk about polls. The website 538 is supposed to be the most accurate, and it was developed in response to bad polling. http://fivethirtyeight.com/
538 is my savior. Also, it’s very entertaining.
My hope is that Donald Trump isn’t really as high in the polls as he thinks he is.
How I wish that were true.
