If Donald Trump holds anything sacred - practises a sacrament - it is abuse.

Nasty names and smears is his schtick - his stock in trade - the medium of his key target demographic - angry white men - who like the way he yells abuse and “tells it like it is”. He channels their rage. At home and abroad.

Same script at every scale - from the Primaries and Campaign and Criminal Hillary to Armageddon and Little Rocket Man …he bawls it out - a late-night barroom scene right across the country. Interesting to watch him slowed down on TV … for a tee-totaller he plays an excellent drunk in fact - slur purfect. Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMMcb1iyYl0&ab_channel=JimmyKimmelLive He knows his angry audience so well.

And that scale - where outbursts of abuse and frustration are justified and righteous - runs to the suburban home. In daily life. Abuse is currency here. On bus, on Twitter, in the Oval Office… Abuse is what he does. So even at home - when the dinner’s late or she just won’t understand - what’s a real man gonna do… one of these day Alice, one of these days…

In fact they believe - but have more sense to say - that such expressions of frustration and anger are legit - understandable if not “natural”… It’s what “real men” do and what “real women” accept. She was asking fer it Sheriff - like them Mexicans is!!!

So don’t be surprised or shocked to find Trump surrounded by aspiring abusers - and that they practise at home. Real men one and all. The US today is actually knee-deep in abuse and brawling from trailer park to White House.


Trump is a freaky looking ahole. Such a fake. I’m waiting for someone to snatch that flimsy rug off his head to reveal his gross ugliness. That would be a hilarious knee slapper. Huckleberry Sanders says of Trump… above anything else he supports the victims of any type of violence and certainly would condemn any violence against anyone. That’s a whopper lying statement since he is killing Afghani’s and arming domestic police state killers who are a direct threat to the American people.

Compared to Mike Pence, Trump isn’t that bad looking. Pence gives me the creeps.

The only thing the Trump/right wing has condemned is women.

We need to know where on the list of FBI questions this one is …

“Do you have a restraining order against you?”

And … just how many people are serving in this administration who do NOT yet have
clearance, or where there are outstanding questions of sexual harassment of women
or violence against women.

You must be one those infamous “Russian bots,” obviously programmed by a semi-literate blowhard.

Ahem. “REgressives” is NOT an ad hominem?

Never assume.

Many of the highly questionable or confirmed idiots/fools/tools and/or shills for one right-wing, fossil-fuel industry, corporate/banker/wall street argument or another often seem like bots, with far too much time on their hands…paid and working out of some troll “factory” or independent propaganda machine…like the Hasbara.shills…infuriating, but they do provide a view of what people stand against…and often a real belly-laugh…
