Most people thought being an OBVIOUS liar, fraud, moron, and clown would be enough to stop him Jon.

I don't see him walking back his remark that voting for Trump wasn't necessarily racist.

That kind of pissed me off.

Yes. It was.   And not just racist.  Trump voters were ok with his fascist tendencies.

99% of people thought this way... until Jeb got canned, Rubio dropped and then you realized that the GOP had no one left to beat him.


That's when the fear started to creep in.

Once Jeb was out, I started stocking up on booze. Well, more than usual.

Oh look. Somebody's mad I called out Jon Stewart.

Get a life if you can't address my comment directly?

It would be more accurate to say he (among so many others) was wrong about the motives, character and intelligence of 60+ million of his fellow Americans. In my younger days, the very idea of someone as deeply flawed and grossly unqualified as Drumpf becoming president was, at most, laughable. As I have told my kids, there have always been people like him; only now could such a person get elected to the highest office in the land.

Yep.  At the beginning of the primaries, it it looked like a funny lark.  The fact that there were like 26 "serious" Republican candidates to start, and way to many hung on way to long allowed him to gain traction.  If there were only a handful of "serious" candidates early on, I think he would have been drummed out early.

I never saw it coming.

I figured "Sure the Republicans picked a clown. That should only help the Democrats right?". I didn't even watch the election. I figured it was a no brainer. When I heard the results the next morning I felt like I was in the twilight zone.

I had been at that job for nearly a year and I made a wrong turn on the way to work thinking about "What happens now?".  My imagination was not adequate to guess the ensuing shiatshow.

the mocking the reporter with the palsied hand not ending his campaign was when i knew he'd get the nomination.   i assumed incorrectly that this country was objective and compassionate and assumed tfg would lose by 10 million votes.

Nah. Trump led the early GOP polling for the 2012 election as well. He was #1 until Obama pwned him with the birth certificate, mocked him to his face at the Correspondents' Dinner, and got bin Laden in the span of one week.

Appealing to the lowest common denominator has been a successful business strategy for decades.
Republicans figured that out and mastered it.

I said it when he announced his run with an air of gallows humor only to find it reinforced over and over again.

"If Donald Trump wins the presidency of the United States, I can think of no more appropriate representative for America's Id."

We all likely think of ourselves as better people than that, but enough of us aren't.  The scariest thing about President Donald Trump was not the Presidency of Donald Trump, though that was plenty frightening.  The scariest thing about his election is what it says about US.  Even those of us who saw through the grift immediately and opposed Trump at every step of the way in every way we had available.  We failed in a LOT of ways.  His supporters in darker, more alarming ways, sure... but we ALL failed.

"I'm not saying he's the same as these figures, but the most dangerous figures are the ones that seem comic and absurd," Stewart added. "Saddam Hussein seems absurd. Muammar Gaddafi would stand in a kaftan and rant like a madman."

But he is.  He's exactly the same.  The only difference is the US Constitution provided this nation with over 200 years of precedent, tradition and continuity of government.  Othwerwise he would have won in 2020 with 100% of the vote.  What do you think the motive behind 1/6 was, anyhow?  So he could serve four more years and actually work with a divided congress?

I think you're grossly understating the stupidity, corruption, and mean-spiritedness of past politicians. Donald Trump was bad, but I'm not sure he would make the top 5 bad presidents we've had. Hell, Andrew Jackson sat in the white house.

I didn't think he would lose because he was too much of a clown. I thought he would lose (the general, not the primaries) because he was too much of an asshole. Also a mistake.

Everyone knew that whatever was coming, wouldn't be good.

I wasn't surprised Trump won his primary, I thought he would lose the general because we elected Obama to two terms just prior.  On the other hand I was sick of Hillary coverage long before the campaign...I think that media over-exposure had a lot to do with her loss.  Moreso than any of the stupid Benghazi or email stuff.

There are a lot of similarities between how the world view Trump before the election, and how it view Hitler before he got elected. You had the same three big viewpoint:

- he will be elected because he has his finger on the pulse of the people, and he will win because he'll show the elites how real Germans/Americans really think
- he's a clown with no chance to defeat real serious politicians
- he only says vile stuff to rile his base and get elected. He'll mellow out once he gets elected, he'll abandon his most aggressive policies and be a classic chancellor

I remember the hushed atmosphere at work too.
The collective mind knew we had just farked up bad.

At the time I imagined that some FatBoy voters would be regretful having only voted for him for stigginit and lols. I now understand they knew exactly what they were voting for and they wanted it. Racism, nationalism, xenophobia, anti-intellectualism. All of it. Just as they wanted.
 
2021-09-16 2:05:45 PM  
Funny to think in 2015, 2016 we were thinking Jeb! or Rand Paul or the former puppet governor of Wisconsin would be the nominee. Hell, for a moment the god botherers got doe-eyed for Ben Carson, until they saw BLACK JESUS art in his house. Imagine the gasps and pearl clutching when 60 Minutes showed that image to Red America.

Then Trump came back into the political race. He'd been a joke before in previous elections. But it was amusing to see Jeb! destroyed by that joke.

It was easy to think "eventually, this will explode." But things, no matter how horrific or how many witnesses, never stuck. Only years before the GOP canned Trent Lott for praising Strom Thurmond, c'mon, where's the banhammer for all these things that would sink thousands of other candidates?

Nor were none of the GOP candidates willing to go scorched earth on Trump. Here's some easy examples.

"Have you seen who works behind the scenes at Trump hotels and golf clubs? He won't build a wall to stop THOSE CHEAP WORKERS. This NY elitist won't let you find that out because he makes sure you can't afford a day at his courses and hotels."
"Make America Great Again hat. Made in China."
"Donald Trump will bow to our enemies, because all they need to do is offer him a golf course and a hotel on beachfront property. Iran will get nuclear missiles to destroy Israel because they offered Trump a condominium in Tehran. Cuba will remain communist because Castro offered him the Trump Havana Hotel and Golf Club."

That was one mistake. Another was I thought Ted Cruz's strategy (as a GOP candidate in 2016 -- hell no I wouldn't vote for his crazy ass) was viable as Trump started to gain serious traction: Don't say anything about or to Donald Trump, let him eventually choke on his own stupid quotes, actions, past, etc, and then when the magic spell ends and the hammer comes down, embrace the poor Trumpers that Ted Cruz stands for all the same things, that's why he didn't say any mean things to DJT. Boom. Followers, voters, etc. following the hooman booger eater from Canada, er, Texas.

But that moment failed to happen and Cruz was among the last, if not last competitive one, to go in 2016.
(Ohio governor "moderate" dude stuck in for reasons)

Then Hillary Clinton also took the same tactic, thinking Trump would hang himself on his own rope of foolishness. That well was bottomless in 2016, if not still.

This. A lot of people who knew better voted for Trump just to cling to their fantasy that the factory jobs were coming back.


Unfortunately the fact that factory and other higher income, lower education requirement jobs didn't come back under the Obama administration, nor did Hillary fully address these issues in her campaign nor speeches is part of the reason why she lost in swing states.

The Democrats lost to a snake oil salesman, because the salesman was the only one claiming he would address their issues instead of Hillary going "I will do this and unlike my opponent, whose history of walking out on paying his workers is well documented, I will do things to make your lives better for you." Instead we had Hillary scoffing at $15 an hour for workers in 2016 when it was barely adequate to be considered a living wage in many states (and now thanks to inflation four years later, it's no longer adequate in most states, if not all, to be a living wage), putting down Universal Healthcare as "unattainable" despite her an her husband pushing for it in 1993, and avoiding campaigning in states where she wasn't guaranteed a win.

Even if you can't get it done, you need to promote what you can get done and people will try to get you elected for that reason. We voted for Biden for $15 minimum wage, partial student loan forgiveness, and better and more affordable health insurance. Not delivering on those promises, despite having the current majority in 2/3rds of government, is what will tank future Democratic party wins since "Better than Trump" won't win elections anymore when he is gone from office.

The mistake that Jon and liberals make is that they don't understand what makes right wingers tick.

The cardinal sin of the right is the appearance of being weak in the public eye. They don't care how offense or bigoted they seem on the outside, if it pisses the libs off, then it was worth it. They don't care how stupid or ignorant they look, because as Trump said, "I love the poorly educated".

But when they look like a bunch of wimps to the outside viewer, they are completely outcasted and set aside from the right wing tribe. They will abide by a lot in the name of stigginit, but they will not tolerate a perceived weakling.
