There are reports out there that Thiel is done with Trump, that he thinks Trump's penchant for chaos has kept him from being effective.

Basically, Trump is Chaotic Evil, and Thiel prefers a Lawful Evil president.

Trump hasn't kept supplying him with little boys' blood like he promised.  Thiel needs someone even more evil in charge

If reports of Thiel withdrawing support are correct, he's representative of a big chunk of voters who were prepared to give Trump a chance since he sounded like he would try to run America as a business.

But given Trump's performance since 2016 they will at very least sit out the election.

And that's bad news for GOP down the ticket, as well as Trump

Do you want an executive order? Because this is how you get an executive order.

Come on, Pete, it's time to GET BEHIND Biden..

Modern day railroad barons as Kingmakers? I already feel better. I'm sure they will be benevolent.

I'm going to put all of my money in trump. Just give me a moment while I cut my own dick off and cram it up my ass.

Thiel is off Trump these days. I think he pissed about how badly Trump has handled the Virus
 
2020-05-27 9:29:03 PM  
Meanwhile, Scott McNealy continues to praise Trump's handling of Coronavirus.

I hope so. Also, instead of appealing to new supporters, all Trump has done is piss many.of them off. One trick pony.

Is the rust belt/coal country going to believe his promises again? I hope not, but I learned a hard lesson in 2016.

Biden gets elected then.

Thiel will support Trump as long as Trump throws those government contracts at Palantir.

Who is reporting this withdrawing?  You got a link?

Not from what I have seen from family in that part of the country. They liked him compared to Hillary in 2016 though.

Like a TRUMP business? Mr. Thiel doesn't pay much attention to bankruptcy court, does he?

Why I moved out.

Where I am in the interim is a combination of on par and worse, but the next stop is golden

It is like the "David Duke" signs in Lake View in the 80s.

Well, outside of New Orleans they are. You can't fix stupid, and the state is assuredly red. But I have overheard people regretting their vote. If that can be a national trend maybe we can ditch this asshole in the garbage bin of history.

How does Biden need to "catch up" to President Sniveling Asshole? Other than in being a stupid farking asshole, of course.

Smelly Pirate Hooker: How does Biden need to "catch up" to President Sniveling Asshole? Other than in being a stupid farking asshole, of course.


Digitally.

Silicon Valley's billionaire Democrats are spending tens of millions of dollars on their own sweeping plans to catch up to President Donald Trump's lead on digital campaigning - plans that are poised to make them some of the country's most influential people when it comes to shaping the November results.
These billionaires' arsenals are funding everything from nerdy political science experiments to divisive partisan news sites to rivalrous attempts to overhaul the party's beleaguered data file.This is all unfolding as the pandemic forces campaigns to pivot away from door-knocks and packed rallies and toward data mining and influencer marketing

The billionaire multinational monopolists who control social media, data, and search results - fundamentally controlling thought - "plotting sweeping, secret plans."

Well, guess nobody should look into any safeguards on that.

Biden's infinitely more likely to do something about it than Donald Trump. Democrats are at least willing to pay lip service to inconveniencing billionaire megalomaniacs.

Constraining the people that got him elected? That Upton Sinclair quote that's been so popular recently comes to mind.

I don't care.  They're still mostly a bunch of sociopathic assholes.

For Obama Biden!

Well if the billionaires are supporting him, he must be a good guy.

Was Thiel unavailable for comment because they tried to contact him during daylight hours..?
