I'll take "Because He's Kind of a Douche" to $1600, Mark...

An actual billionaire calling out Two Scoops. That's gonna burn.

Is Biden the candidate that I would have picked to go against Trump?  No.  But he's what we got and we absolutely, positively, have to get Trump out of office, so I'm voting for Biden

My real hope is that he picks a great VP because I have a feeling that person will end up as president in the very near future.  Not wishing ill on Biden, but he's at that age where anything can happen.

Even more important that getting Trump out, we have to get the Senate flipped blue.  Get McConnell out of there as well.  Then we can start to rebuild from the ashes that Trump will leave behind.

Without reading TFA, I'm going to guess Hannity doubled down on the victim card and said something like, "Because no president in history has ever faced such hostility and subversive threats from within his own government."

Because Trump is a whiny biatch.

Because Trump is a coward.
 
2020-05-21 10:42:21 AM  
For all the literature that exists out there on leadership, Trump has been the exact opposite at literally every turn since he brought the country with him on his escalator descent into the shiatter.
 
2020-05-21 10:42:27 AM  
Because Trump is a coward.  He's always been a coward and like other great cowards before he learned how to deflect responsibility and hide behind the biggest skirt.

My fear is that after we give the Democrats their blue tsunami in Nov. they take it as a mandate to defer to the Republican minority again. 

Trump needs to go, and the issues he's brought to light need to be fixed. Doing so would require the Democrats to play dirty for a bit because we all know the GOP is going to obstruct for the sake of obstructing.
 
2020-05-21 10:45:21 AM  
There's defending someone, and then there's this desperate stalker-level, do-no-wrong, creepy as fark level of complete fealty that Hannity portrays.

I suppose it's not surprising that a group of people who need every tool in the book to cover up their insecurities and tout their alpha creds habitually watch someone as pathetic as little biatch Hannity.
 
2020-05-21 10:46:38 AM  
Because Trump's a "bottom".
 
2020-05-21 10:46:40 AM  
I think that Donald doesn't put the best people in place any longer. He did at the beginning and I was proud of him at the beginning, but now he just wants people who are loyal to him that's a problem and it's created more problems in this pandemic," he continued

Cuban never misses an opportunity to remind everyone he's a dick.
 
2020-05-21 10:47:08 AM  
Fark off, Cuban, with your "both sides" bullshiat
 
2020-05-21 10:49:03 AM  
Cubans best response to Hannity was "Who cares"

Hannity: they are so mean to him and out to get him
Cuban: Who Cares.

2020-05-21 10:49:22 AM  
Because nothing is ever Trump's fault. It's all that terrible Obama, or Hillary, or the Deep State. Trump is a perfect being. At least in his deluded little world.
And it's all a conspiracy that he's never been accepted into "polite society" even though he's a raging arsehole.
Oh, he'll show them all. He'll show them all one day.
 
2020-05-21 10:50:35 AM  
"Why isn't the guy who's not currently working in government doing more than the President?"

F you, Hannity.

Palined Parenthood: Fark off, Cuban, with your "both sides" bullshiat


Mark Cuban is amazingly effective and pragmatic. However, when he seems insanely effective at playing both sides as well. On the one hand he talks about the need for a federal works program, but on the other he is still a psuedo-libertarian stink face who advocates individualism.

Rich people are scared for their money. Some of them, like Mark Cuban, are either secure in their money or scared at the potential backlash when the rest of America don't even have places to live. He knows the anger is going to be directed at him and all people in power. So that's why he favors vastly leftist programs.

To save his own ass.
 
2020-05-21 10:52:00 AM  
Because people that complain about snowflakes are the snowflakiesr snowflakes ever to snow. Seriously, people like Trump are the kind of snowflakes that hit the ground and don't stick, immediately turning into slush.

OldRod: Even more important that getting Trump out, we have to get the Senate flipped blue.  Get McConnell out of there as well.  Then we can start to rebuild from the ashes that Trump will leave behind.


100% agree on this. If I could only get one (blue senate or trump out) I might just pick blue senate. All because of the SCOTUS and secondarily because accountability with holding both houses could be harder to dodge.

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take to twitter with petty names,
And perchance to grift
Aye there is the rub how to profit
from a sea of troubles...
 
2020-05-21 10:54:36 AM  
Because he's a whiny little biatch who got handed everything and wasted it.

In a decent world, he would have eaten a bullet.

The dude said 17 completely wrong and batshiat crazy, and sandwiched one correct observation about Trump's lack of leadership between.

Let's not start sucking Mark Cuban's flacid billionaire dick just yet.

"if Trump is so powerful, he always has to play the victim card?"

Because it was so effective for Bill Clinton?
 
2020-05-21 10:56:07 AM  
Both parties are trash and don't give a crap about the American people. The pandemic tipped me over the edge. My family is selling most of our stuff and I'm taking my $225,000 a year to New Zealand. This country is beyond any hope. It's always been like this and it always will be. Americans will never do the right thing. New Zealand fits with my lifestyle and worldview perfectly.

Bringing back the greatest hits from 1998, I see.  I hope you can bring back the Zubaz pants too.  That was dope!
 
2020-05-21 10:59:39 AM  
Because authoritarians always use victim narratives to justify their hate and atrocity.   Most of what Hitler talked about was how Germans were the victims of the world and Jews.

This is just what they do.  This is how Trump's evil farking voters feel: Aggrieved. And that gives them the moral justification to do what they do.

Trash douche bag calls out trash douche bag.
 
2020-05-21 11:01:42 AM  
that is an amazingly "millionaire CEO" argument right there...

Trump isn't bad b/c he was actually WRONG.  or b/c his actions were illegal.  or even b/c he was caught doing any of those things...

Trump is bad b/c he is ineffective at wielding the power he has to crush all the people speaking out and pointing out that the things hes doing are wrong, illegal, etc.

there's some serious insight to the sociopathic mindset there.

Rich people should understand that table scraps are an investment in their longevity. At least Cuban gets that.

This! Trump ran on a platform of grievance and victimhood! "It's so unfar..."

That's.. not even a defense.

Seriously, you're a Trump cheerleader, can you actually answer the question with something that doesn't make your worship of the whiny little biatch completely fall apart?

For the next 6 months you will be reminded constantly that Trump is a weak, moronic, ineffective leader that has done basically nothing in 4 years of substance. Now he is on track to be a catastrophic failure at saving lives, and he can't even hold half a press conference without leaving in a Huffington and tweeting how it's all unfair.

It was easier to mock you when the President was just a failure and embarrassment. Now he's set to kill more Americans from a virus than WWII did, orders of magnitude worse than any other country on Earth, and it makes me want to kick every stupid troll here in the grundle.

Trump will go down as one of the top 3 worst US Presidents in history. Enjoy your legacy.

If the President does it, it is not illegal. Therefore everything the President does is lawful and he has all powers.

Well, except for the power of protecting himself from random other people.

He claims the glories and attributes of God, but has none of the responsabilities or virtues. Ergo, he is Lucifer.

If you support him, you are a damned soul, without redemption, for you, like him, are incapable of admitting an error, confessing, repentence or doing penance, and thus can not be absolved or forgiven.

C'est la logique. À cela il n'y a rien à dire. Dans ses propres mots.

By his own words, action, thoughts and feelings, he is damned beyond remission.

When he faces the Jury of the Damned, Richard M. NIxon will be the foreman of the jury and Satan will plead the defense before Lucifer. Trump is the Devil's farty fart fart.
 
2020-05-21 11:14:37 AM  
He spied on the candidate. Yes and they found crimes. And they continue to find crimes.
