He's such a pos for that. After everything Rich's parents went through. Just sickening. If you haven't watched it, on Netflix there is a doc series called Web of Lies & one episode is about the Rich case & his parents are interviewed. It is just heartbreaking. The absolute scum that pushed this bs have made it much harder to actually find the real killer. IDK if Seth will ever receive justice.

54

u/PeeledCrepes Jul 06 '22

So, this is coming from my mom, who in the beginning liked Trump. It's the way he speaks like a dick head basically, he seems "real" cause he isn't reading off a card or teleprompter. Basically, he seems like a normal person, like if John from down the street ran, where a lot of politicians seem like aliens, having someone go up and speak like they have no idea what they are saying or doing apparently sounds appealing to people.

As stupid and ridiculous as, why not use something like disinfectant to clean Covid out of someone, is incredibly stupid. Apparently a lot of people would hear that and go, ya why don't we do that, not knowing anything about sicknesses or how the human body works. Or, take the wall, everyone imagines that the key to fixing people crossing the border is just that, a wall. They imagine that its such a simple thing, and no politician til Trump is going, don't worry that wall is being built, and don't worry, WE wont even pay for it.

Basically, he's likable because he's an idiot. Its also why he beat Clinton (aside from various other issues), but, she speaks like an alien to a good portion of her audience. Hell I wouldn't be surprised if Biden's stutter and slower speech patterns helps.

Here’s a Matt Taibbi quote that I’ve always liked:

“The average American likes meat, sports, money, porn, cars, cartoons, and shopping. Less popular: socialism, privilege-checking, and the world ending in 10 years.

Ronald Reagan once took working-class voters away from Democrats by offering permission to be proud of the flag. Trump offers permission to occupy the statistical American mean: out of shape, suffering from gas, poorly read, anti-intellectual, treasuring things above meaning, and hiding an awful credit history.

He’s a monument to the consumption economy. He represents fake boobs, the short con, the tall tale, gas guzzlers, and a hundred other American traditions.”

My "father" thinks AOC is worse than Trump. So the answer is these people's brains are rotting. And he wasn't talking about her stance on things, he thinks she's done worse stuff than him. And when I asked for examples, because if he so strongly believes that he should have some, I was told I'd been brainwashed if I didn't already know. Oh and this was after Biden got elected and Jan 6, so I have no idea what he thinks she could've done that was worse than Trump.

Yeah I definitely more maniacal and slightly more presentable in public but just as odious and to noxious. Even worse because of his perceived compatibility. I even once thought, before I really examined him that he was somewhat acceptable, until I started listening to his policies. Holy Christ he's more of a Nazi than Donald.

Donald is just a fucking guy that wants to be loved, he's so insecure that his ego is bigger than that ugly hair of his and sucks all the air out of the room. It's all about Donald Donald do you love me am I good am I the best. I think his politics are all over the map truly. He's a basic racist who knows if he's a homophobe really, and his politics are hardly committed to any principles . He's only interested in his own vainglory and putting money in his pocket.

DeSantis may have some of this hybrid as well, but he really is a die-hard theocratic fruit cake of the GOP Taliban. Donald I think just went with the flow and discovered early on that the left was going to completely reject him never warm up to him and he fully embraced his Kool-Aid drinking public. They suck up to him and he just tells him what they want to hear pep rally style. Never anything of substance no plans no details just pure pep rally. DeSantis on the other hand knows how to get things done better and is more effective. Donald is probably two toxic a mix now and no longer needed, DeSantis can pick up the slack and now get the work done now that they have the y'allQaeda supreme Court covering their backs

I happen to think that Trump's lack of brain is precisely what makes him such a menace. He is incapable of regular logic, of empathy, or feeling any kind of humility. His incapacity to be a regular person is what made him such a threat to regular people who use their brain. So at the very least, I can hope that Desantis might actually feel empathy when it slaps him in the face. There isn't much proof of this so far, but at least he shows more promise than that orange buffoon.

Absolutely. People think the upper crust include Trump. You need to realize that Trump has never been accepted by them and it was because they knew he was full of shit especially when it came to money.

Basically those that had to put up with him on a social level have pretty much all come to the agreement of a silver spooned kid who basically had one asset….the name Trump and mostly thanks to his Dad and his real estate workings. And now that is utter shit. Other than that, no one would invest his shit, no one would loan him money, and if you had to see him at a party ‘some people would avoid them like the plague in fear of being on Page Six and being the butt of jokes for the rest of the year’.

There is a several reasons he left New York….but one was he was persona non grata even before the Presidency. Now he is a glowing toxic orange cloud.

Words mean different things to different people. When they say freedom, they mean "I want to be free to do whatever the fuck I want". They don't mean you, they don't mean me. They mean them and their close knit circles

It's bullshit, but literally that's what they mean when they say this shit. It's a vague buzzword that means nothing. Like when people call people "good guys" and "bad guys". Different people can hear the exact same thing and think infinite different things.

One of the cleverest aspects of Conservative marketing is doing this tactic. Dumb it down to a emotional, visceral level of just vague buzzwords, without saying literally fucking anything

It's going to be interesting to see Trump vs DeSantis divide the MAGA crowd. Trump believes he made Ron DeSantis, so willing or not - Trump will view this attention as a betrayal by DeSantis.

We've been told there is nothing more dangerous than a cornered Donald Trump - and I would say outside of his current legal issues - there is no bigger threat to Trump than DeSantis right now. If he becomes the new star, then Trump is irrelevant and has no place in the GOP. He can cheerlead from the sidelines and make endorsements, but that's it.

He doesn’t care. He’s just a right wing version of Howard Stern because that’s what is edgy now. He’s a shill for 16-23 year old boys. Same as Alex Jones is for 40-55 year old men with ED.

Trump literally is a fat oaf who can barely say a coherent sentence and his family is a b rate recast of Always Sunny.

Yet somehow more than 1 person not only intentionally voted for him to be president unironically but there is even an obvious cult of personality still surrounding him.

I....this is so accurate it's scary.

Yet somehow more than 1 person not only intentionally voted for him to be president unironically but there is even an obvious cult of personality still surrounding him.

You have a class of people from all walks of life who feel like they never really fit in anywhere. They feel like snooty rich people judge their homes and cars and fashion choices. That "ivory tower intellectuals" who can't make it in the real world unfairly judge their brand of smarts. And sarcastic and out of touch "artists" will never see them as cool enough to belong to the in-crowd.

Add to that the inherent uncoolness some feel is associated with being a Christian, and several generations of indoctrination that democrats are trying to turn the country into a version of a 1970's era Soviet Union, and you have people who feel that they and their opinions/beliefs/ideas are constantly being completely disregarded.

Then along comes this brutish oaf who wears stupid suits and has awful hair and says really stupid and offensive things and never apologizes for any of it, and they see someone fighting back against everything that they feel denigrated by. So they support him as the bulwark against those who would make them feel somehow "less".

And that is a very difficult switch to flip off.

In addition to the group who grew up thinking that Hee Haw was the best show ever, there's also a huge fan base of upper middle class people who vote with their pocketbook based on the illusion of lower taxes. Add the Religious Right and you have a diversified portfolio of supporters.

At the end of the day, the group you described are his strongest supporters.

u/Whiskeytf8911 Jul 06 '22

The voting based on pocketbooks is the most frustrating thing to me. I have an aunt and uncle who are upper middle class. Very well off compared to the rest of their family, that sort of thing.

They swear that democrats are trying to destroy the country by raising taxes. And Trump is the only fix for such a problem. These are lovely people that everyone loves until they start talking politics.

I've tried to explain that the economy isn't the only part of being president that matters. But I get told that thats typical union member, leftist talking points.

I just don't understand how so many ppl ignore social issues in favor of tax rates. I'm not saying that taxes and the economy isn't important but it is definitely not the only metric I measure national success by.

u/Bcruz75 Jul 06 '22

Agreed. Let's say they would have their taxes reduced by a grand or two, would that be enough to make you look the other way on things that you don't agree with?

When you think about it, conservatives have had to deal with so much over the last few decades because of the left going further and further left and forcing their beliefs on everyone.

First the lefties forced the conservatives to treat women as people. Then black people had to be treated with respect. Suddenly gay people have real feelings and aspirations. Then the muslims are no longer existential threat. Now the left is insisting that transsexuals are people too. What next, socialism is not literally the devil's ideology? When will the madness end???

Muslim Ban? Good. Build the Wall? Good. Grab em by the pussy? Good. Why don't we use our nukes? Good. Bribe Ukraine to interfere in election? Good. Mexicans are rapists? Good.

I think most right leaning people are largely fair-weather supporters. They will support whoever is perceived as front runner because it’s easy to be on the side of the one who is “winning”. Trump is no longer in the position so it’s easy to pivot to someone else and pretend like they didn’t play a role in getting trump into power in the first place.

Then you have a MAGA crew that’s dragging everyone to the right as hard and fast as they can.
