CNN Lady Alisyn Camerota Cannot Even Handle How Dumb Trump Supporters Are

We are not saying everybody who voted for Donald Trump is stupid or racist or sexist or OH MAN DID WE MENTION DUMB. We are not saying they’re all too empty-headed to know that the “news” they’re getting from Facebook is not actually real news. We’re not saying they ALL should be required to wear helmets, for their own protection.

Trump Supporters To CNN on 3 Million People Voting Illegally: ‘You Could Find It on Facebook’

Trump surrounds himself with ass kissers

Actually it seems more like Trump is surrounding himself with those he feels morally and intellectually superior to. Pretty sure of this.  Anyone obviously smarter or with a modicum of integrity is subject to a constipated Trump's toilet tweets.
Here is another Simpson's cautionary tale.

What’s he hiding? Donald Trump hires expensive attorneys to fight Jill Stein’s recount

What does Donald Trump have to fear from a simple recounting of the votes in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania to make sure there were no shenanigans the first time around? Apparently a lot. Trump spent the weekend delivering his most surreal Twitter meltdown to date, inventing imaginary voter fraud in three other random states and arbitrarily accusing millions of Americans of having voted illegally. But apparently that wasn’t mere bluster, because now Trump has panicked and hired some of the most expensive attorneys out there to fight against the recount effort. Full Article

Robert Reich on Trumps Thank you Rally

Tonight Donald Trump held a rally in Cincinnati. It was billed as the start of a “thank you tour,” but whenever Trump wandered off the teleprompter it was all about Donald Trump -- a stupefying display of self-congratulation, pathological narcissism, and vindictiveness toward the media that reminded me of a fascist rally of the 1930s.

Steve Bannon’s disturbing views on ‘genetic superiority’ are shared by Trump

This is superior genetics???? Yuck.

Former Breitbart head Steve Bannon has been a national lightning rod ever since he was appointed CEO of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. At-issue: Bannon’s deep ties to the growing white nationalist movement, which provided some of Trump’s earliest and most fervent supporters.
