Gotta be photoshopped - no way he'd fit into that waistcoat.

The bayonet on the minigun is a nice touch though.

Speaking of which did you see Pelosi described him as "morbidly obese" on CNN yesterday... the right are up in arms about body-shaming etc which has always been an important cause for them admittedly.

Same with his orange skin tone, because being mean to people on the basis of their colour is really bad and they don't like that at all.

All kicking off.... supreme court said Mueller can't be released, federal judge said Trumps can be used for fraud for something I lose track of what...

IdleRich
Wow... he seems to be high. Again. Anyway, you're right about the attacks on voting. The way I see it the tanking economy and the way that they have no control of coronavirus and in fact no idea how to get control of it is lowering his poll numbers - not as much you'd expect, but it is - and as a result Trump can't win which means that he has a better than even chance of going to jail. So he's desperate, he's gonna cheat like fuck (or as much as the senate and the supreme court let him get away with), assuming there is an election. Very scary time for the US.

IdleRich
Yeah but the main point - he is gonna fight tooth and nail by fair means and foul to win the election cos if he loses there is a serious risk of him going to jail - still stands I think. This election is gonna be dirty in every way.

I still can't believe he's president tbh. I thought I'd eventually get used to it, but I haven't. It's utterly surreal.

Yeah. And that people act like it's normal every day... they say "He didn't mean drink bleach" and "Impeachment was a hoax" and so on and on and it's so much insanity. I don't understand it at all.

That people are so heavily invested in a politician is bizarre. It's the kind of behaviour you'd expect from an addict.

that's the way he operates: overwhelm people with so much nonsense that they get tired of it and just give up/don't care, or don't take any of it seriously. allows him to say anything and contradict himself the next day cuz who cares. and you're a jerk if you do care about norms and what's right.

As over there, so over here. I know I really should rise above it but I can't help getting into arguments on Twitter with idiots who are convinced the government is doing a great job of handing the response to the pandemic. They're totally impervious to logic and facts. Point out that - according to the best figures anyone has - we now have the worst death toll in Europe and second-worst globally behind the USA and they'll just say "those numbers are wrong". And they do have a shadow of a ghost of a point, because frankly who the hell knows how you'd accurately account for the different ways different countries have of gathering and reporting this data, and frankly the true numbers in countries like China, Iran and Russia are anyone's guess, but that's just missing the wood for the trees because the pertinent fact is that just two months ago we were looking in horror at Italy and Spain, while our deaths numbered under a hundred, and saying "Wow, thank god that's not happening here!"

I think these are many of the same people who say Brexit is great because we're no longer sending money to Brussels, and then when you point out that it's already cost the economy more than the UK's total EEC/EU contributions since 1973, respond with a hilarious photo of a crying baby.

The mentality seems to be that loser-dom is defined not by actually losing out from a situation but by not being prepared to insist that everything is great and the government is doing a great job. Or they're aware, on some level, that we're all getting shafted, but they don't care as long as it's "their" side that's doing the shafting.
