Counterpoint: If he loses in November, he will burn Washington DC to the ground on his way out. He'll pardon every white collar crook he can, he'll horsefeathers out executive orders by the dozens, etc.

The Red states are going to find even more new and interesting ways to keep people from voting. It's going to be a crazy few months leading up to November.

It's been a busy week so I haven't paid a ton of attention to red states, but I assume some of them will also pass dog & pony show "police reform" legislation that does nothing so that they can claim that they've taken action.

Robert's is leaving behind an odd legacy for "his court", but from a layman's pov it does seem like he's a least consistent.

Part of me wonders if those around Trump knew this would fail if they were sloppy enough with it, but that was part of the calculus. Score political points when announced with MAGA, and then eventually pivot to blaming the failure of passing actual legislation on Dems to woo moderate GOPers (seems to be a talking point I have seen a lot).

Well duh.



I'm just planning for a very satisfying November-January horsefeathers Show


Agreed. Biden is not my top choice but I hope he just crushes him. Then trump gets to be a lame duck cuck where he will cry about it every day on Twitter. I bet he won’t even show up for inauguration!

If your impulse is "I knew this already" just consider giving the benefit of the doubt that you weren't the intended audience.

I mean, we like to joke the republican(ts) are nazis, but to see them graphically next to actual nazis is pretty compelling

Yeah, I wasn't trying to be offensive. I just thought everyone here (i.e. the audience) new that the Republicans were tending nazi for the past two decades, and really ramped it up the past 5 years. It can't be a surprise to see that the only political parties that are more Nazi are actual neo-Nazis.

Relax, I wasn't offended. I just see posters get that attitude directed at them sometimes. I get that the guys who post in this thread know like 90% of this horsefeathers, but there are more reticent members/lurkers who may not. The vast majority of the horsefeathers I post I realize isn't anything deep. My primary intention is to maybe expose someone to an article, or argument, or meme that might help them, not have IRL arguments, but maybe better order their internal takes. That is all.

I know it’s obvious but sometimes it’s still unbelievable. They met with political signs supporting our President for a protest against people celebrating not being slaves. Fine people.

Never forget, the Nazis were patterned after traditional southern American values, the same ones that Republicans are constantly pining to go back to.
