Next, put on the Beetlejuice makeup and do an endorsement ad for Donald Trump, from the perspective of a being representing Evil incarnate.

Explain how Trump has helped kill hundreds of thousands of people, which makes evil very happy.
Explain how evil loves to see countless refugee babies and children suffer unspeakable pain as they are forever separated from their parents and treated like prisoners.
Explain how evil loves the constant hatred and name-calling that is Trump's trademark.
And the racism, OH the racism! "Be still my heart!...Well, because of racism, but also because I died of Covid-19"
Evil hates masks and loves cutting people's access to healthcare, so they can suffer and die.
Evil loves grabbing women by the pssy, without their consent.
Constant, endless lies are like oxygen to evil.

"Vote Trump, for another four years of lies, death, hatred, and narcissism! As evil incarnate, I endorse this message, so you too can join me in hell soon."

With a few notable cases of glaring nepotism, I do find it amusing that actors and entertainers are what Trump pretends to be: self-made millionaires who got by on hard work, merit and talent.

A few have even deliberately chosen stage names to avoid the obvious connection to their relatives in the industry, such as Nick Cage and Angelina Jolie.

Mr. Rogers was so cool. Here, understanding and respecting who does most of the actual work while he gets most of the fun and the credit. Still setting a good example all these years later.

(And Keaton did a fine job, too, making his point and having a little modestly-stated fun with it.)

Fark user imageView Full Size

Let's face it, voting for Biden simply because he is not Trump is like being forced to choose between rape and nonconsenting sex.  The only difference between the two political parties is that Republicans do not even attempt to hide their evil like the Democrats do but if you think either party cares about anything beyond adding to their nest funds, you are just fooling yourself.    Both parties thought it best to dump their stocks and reinvest when the covid hits instead of preparing the country for the worst, if an extinction level asteroid was to aim for earth, both parties would be giving news conferences safe on a space station or in a bunker with their favored ones while the rest of us are left to die.  So your choice is Trump 2020, the same shiat as the last four years or Biden 2020, the same shiat just repackaged. Seriously, the best person that the Democratic party could come up with to run against Trump is so behind who has been running for President since 1988 and seems so inept that he almost makes Trump look competent.  Was Obama just a fluke of a candidate in the party, Biden is the best they have...Trump is the best the Republicans have...Idiocracy approaches people.

/if you are going to waste a vote just vote on Dancing with the Stars.

Even nepotism will only carry someone just so far. It opens doors but only those with merit, talent, and hard work will build a lasting career in the business. Some, like Ron Howard and Jeff Bridges will even surpass the parent (or parents) that got them in the business.
