Americans Will Only "Sit Up" for Trump When He's Handcuffed and Frog-Marched Out of the White House

Juan Cole

Trump on Friday added to the astronomic tally of his bizarre brainfarts by saying of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un: "He speaks, and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same."

There was a poll that found that 9% of Americans agree with the neo-Nazis. I have a feeling there is considerable overlap between the 9% for the noo-Nazis and the 9.5% who agree completely with Trump. Of course Trump gets support in voting from single issue voters on gun control and abortion. He also gets a lot of votes from people who disagree with him on many issues but are very bothered by the recent increase in Hispanics that they see in their communities or fear such an increase will occur. That doesn’t get him a majority but with the electoral college he doesn’t need a majority of the popular vote, only electoral college votes those are the votes that really count. .

Too many of our fellow peons think all-out war against the current situation in this country is to be avoided at all costs; the problem with that is that our ‘government terrorists’ are fighting wars in 8 different countries across this planet. What’s the difference between fighting illegal wars in other countries as opposed to we peons fighting a righteous war to reinstate OUR rights in OUR country? I’d rather fight to get our country BACK than fight even one more war for oil!

On the bright side, we can credit Trump with showing us the truth about the American people. This country is extremely polarized, and regardless of disagreement on particular issues, his popularity among Republicans has shown us what a huge population of racist, bigot, fascist psychopath-cheerleaders we have here. They really want to make him the next Hitler.

At least one MSNBC reporter present for the remarks said (I am paraphrasing:) “Taken in context, Trump seemed to be referring to his staff, and not all of the American people.”

We, are “not” your people.

And, you are “not” our president.

We can’t wait for the day you are put in shackles and led away to a cell for the criminally insane.

You’re right, and with the new ‘rule’ the DNC has instituted it will be damned near impossible for good, progressive candidates to win any election. I was seriously considering voting straight Dem ticket this November until I found out what the DNC is trying to do – they haven’t learned sh*t since 2016, they continue being the insane ostriches they are (sticking their heads in the sand while expecting a different outcome)!

54% of eligible voters, voted in 2016. But, this # doesn’t count provisional ballots cast and not counted or spoiled ballots. Number unknown.
In 2016 the purging of voter rolls also removed some eligible voters using Cross Check software.
Additional purges or the abuse of ex-felons eligible to vote is also a # that’s not readily available. Number unknown, as well.
Discouraged voters are more apt to become apathetic citizens, less likely to vote in the future.
This is not a bug in our election schemes, on the local, state and federal level. It is a desirable outcome, by some, and an enhancement to our election schemes. Lets hope, for this country and the planet, resistance is not a futile exercise.

Well, I am certainly NOT one of Old Orange Butt’s people. He’s arrogant to think many are “his people”

If Trump wants to see a truly “bigly” crowd all he will have to do is look around as he is frog marched to the gibbet.

A public hanging of Trump in Washington, D.C. would draw a nice crowd, too.

Way bigglier than his phony inauguration.
He is such a traitorous douchebag. A sign of the toilet bowl half of the US has become.

I’d prefer to see the Dumps receive the Romanov treatment rather than the perp walk.

Amiright, Trump Dump? The stench is strong with you.

When you see a dog with rabies, you put down the dog with rabies. The #MAGA crowd are rabid dogs.

When looking to normalize, you look for false context.

You are normalizing American NAZIism. You are ultimately the problem.

I normalize nothing.

I merely quoted (or paraphrased) a reporter who seemed to think that the “my people” Trump was referring to were his staff, since the people Kim brought with him seemed so obedient and attentive to him.

I realize that calling Trump’s people “rabid dogs” and saying that they must be “put down” sounds better to you, but that simply makes you just like them.

And that is the real problem.

You sound a bit like a rabid dog yourself, Ron.

Better watch out. You’ll end up in the same dog van as the MAGA crowd.

Birds of a feather, one might say.

Or dogs of one fur.
