He *is* all of these bad things, but he's also more bad things than almost any of these single articles point out.

You could literally write entire series of books about all the interacting farked-up-ednesses inside that piece of shiat. Psych grad students will be getting PhDs for studying this monster and his cultists for -decades-.

Who the fark gave us the participation tropies in the first farking place?! But sure it's millenials, that cohort that has less than 2 percent of all wealth and assets that are being selfish, not you pack of old rich farks.

Eh, we needed more of these people during the last four years. You'll see more of them capitalize on it now that Trumpism seems stalled. They'll disappear once it rises up again.

I'm not that stopping the corpse because that is quite dead but at least have the perspective to not to being a 3rd grader about it. It personally diminishes you as any cache you haven't of any in the last 4 years.

Couldn't have put it better myself.

I think every state of the union should be required to start out this way followed by any and all election vote in should have to come up with a reason why and when.
It would keep things spicy.

They do it because their crusade stopped being about anything other than causing their opponents pain a long time ago. They came to the crossroads and struck a deal to make a human troll the president of the United States, because he put Obama in his (birth) place and made all the right people mad. He was their vehicle to give the finger to half of the country.

How are so many people missing the point of using the word "millennials?"

Of COURSE Donald trump isn't actually a millennial. The author isn't claiming he literally is, nor is he equating Trump to actual millennials.

The whole point is using the Trump cult's own rhetoric against them to show that Donald Trump is everything they claim to hate. Same reason why he refers to Trump as a "snowflake,' as "elite," as "an Ivy Leaguer," as someone who wants participation trophies, as someone who wants safe spaces, who clings to victimhood, who believes in censorship, who is "triggered," who is a "beta-soy-boy cuck," etc.

He's simply weaponizing the speech Trumpers who to demonize Trump critics and using it against Trump himself.

It's INCREDIBLY obvious and I can't believe so many people missed it.

No they're just saying the quiet part out loud now that they used Trump to lock up the courts with conservative justices for the next several decades and nailing some SCOTUS seats. This is getting rid of the dead weight after the fact.

You're one or the other, not both


I'm not sure what you mean. Millennials are people born after 1980 and before 1997, so called Generation Y. Everyone who is currently 34 years old is also a millennial, so it's definitely both.

... Someone 34 today was 14-24 in 2000-2010.

What definition of "millennial" are you using?

EVERY time someone posts the birth year range for millenials it's completely different. And they ALL claim it's a strict definition, set by the ISO or something.

Cute complaint and all, but 34 is a millennial by every single age range I've ever seen.

I haven't seen everything of course. Can you show a usage that would exclude a 34 yo?

I think the author of this...piece...is implying that Trump behaves as much of society perceives how millennials behave. He's not wrong as far as Trump's behavior goes, but the whole "millennials do this" trope is pretty stale.

Its simpler than that. He's decrying the voting system to undermine democracy. This is his end game.

The Irresponsible Captain: [Fark user image 425x392]


According to Donnie's sister's description of him in Mary Trump's book, Trump was a f*ckup even as an infant. He never had any pets (which is a good thing because god help those poor critters) and was a very selfish and mean little brat.

Back in the days of Disco, Trump was known to hang out at Studio 54 not to party but to try to glom onto celebrities and make deals in order to enhance his own "brand", snorting up all the free cocaine he could get his nose over.

In the 80's, he was never accepted by the real tycoons. One described him as "a clown with credit".

By the early aughts, his "brand" was fading, his casinos and other rackets were failing, and no respectable bank in the US was crazy enough to give him a line of credit. This made him a perfect fit with the russian mafia loan sharks and money-launderers.

Then when Obama became President, Trump began to make use of all the Stupids by whipping up his "birther" schemes. These inbreds and trailer trash were an untapped pool of racist anger that became more noticeable during the Sarah Palin years, but they were never truly weaponized until a hatemonger like Trump got his conman hands on them.

erewhon the opinionated: Its simpler than that. He's decrying the voting system to undermine democracy. This is his end game.


Some pundits are claiming that Trump is deliberately trying to drive the country into the ground like an Imperial Weapons Freighter (we all saw that episode last week) in the hope that it may scare Democrats into "cutting a deal" with him where would resign IF they will let him keep all the money he stole and strut away scot-free from all crimes Federal & statewide.
 
2020-11-20 6:24:41 PM  
Got to give him credit for presiding over "the most secure election in American history." We're it not for his insisting on better voter ID, secure postal voting, and purging of voter rolls of ineligible voters we would have had widespread vote fraud. But due to his superior leadership, the election was the most secure its ever been. Even Obama could not engineer that.

Well he is a Republican, so it is true that him and people like him believe that millennials behave that way.
They are wrong about that, of course, but he is right about Trump and at least he is internally consistent.
