The best we can hope for is some version of, "Fine, Im tired of people complaining about him so I'll just vote Desantis instead.  Are you happy libs?"

Thank you Subby for making me picture a naked TFG.

They'll start saying only groomers wear clothes, and we'll start seeing a lot of unattractive people riding Hoverounds, only wearing red hats and occasionally an oxygen mask.

No. Doing that would be admitting to being duped. And they simply can't do that.

He'd just say FAKE NEWS and they'd believe it.

These are the same assholes who believe mass shootings are faked and the dead kids are crisis actors, Hubes.  He literally could shoot someone dead in the middle of Fifth Avenue, live on camera, and his cult would have the excuses ready before the body fully hit the pavement.

No, because they'd rather betray the Constitution than be shown to be wrong.

They know he's lying.  He knows he's lying.  The fact he can do it and will face no consequences for it, demonstrates his authority.

They'll never admit it, but they're already over him. There are younger, hotter authoritarians to fall in love with now.

Explain to them every single thing he did and how it led to the current instability with NATO and emboldened Russia, and how that contributed to gas proces and inflation.  Then talk about how they attacked every grant on climate chamge and all the data reporting on crime and how they buried as much as they could.  Just stop there to take a breath and see if you can get a sentence out that doesnt include Biden Hillary Obama.

A lot, but not most, got a wakeup call on Jan 6. A lot of those that did, probably most this time, have gone back under his fold since then.

If they ever do, I want to watch it happen - that little pop in their brain and the wave of oh f*ck that spreads over their face and down their body. Hopefully one or two of them will piss themselves in realization.

Deep down they do, but they're unequipped to deal with it emotionally so they lash out violently.

and they actually think he looks buff and badass. it's like an anorexic person who sees themselves as overweight even when their ribs are starting to show. if the MAGAts ever did get to see their orange god fully naked they'd probably pass out from ecstasy.

Just like with Bush II. They won't ever admit that he's awful, they just kind of...move on. He's quickly becoming yesterday's news.

"After Thursday's hearing, a clearer picture is developing about the flimsiness of the false election fraud scheme. No longer is it plausible that Trump might have believed that he won the election, nor that the "election fraud" claim was legitimate. The combination of evidence and sworn testimony from the last two hearings has sharply helped develop that picture."

Most of his supporters know this. They don't care. They don't believe there was fraud either - they're just flatly done with living in a democracy that lets their political opponents vote.

Putin could come out with a book called "How I Conspired With Donald J Trump To Steal The 2016 Election" with special limited time bonus "Hookers Pee On A Bed While Trump Watches And Rubs One Out" DVD for $19.95 (just pay shipping and handling) and the base would still vote for him. Nothing is going to change that.

With the mask under their nose.

"Will the right-wing ever get over Trump?" was a headline the press should have been majoring in two years ago at the latest.

"How violent will the right-wing get and how much of our world will they destroy?" is the appropriate headline for now.

Jesus farking Christ, does no onerealize it's not the farking point?

Donald Trump was elected to do one thing, and one thing only, and it is the only thing in his rotten life he has ever done successfully.

They support Trump BECAUSE he does these things.

I spent a week last Summer in North Carolia.

On the hour-long drive from the airport to the place we'd rented on the water we drove our rental van along a few good stretches of state highways.

Nearly every few minutes there'd be some beat up shack that would barely pass for a residence that was just begging to be demolished by a strong wind.  And in about half of these there'd be some sort of homemade sign supporting Trump or blaming the media or how the election was stolen.

We saw modified pallets with slogans, blue tarps painted with pro-Trump slogans and what looked like modified (and likely stolen) real estate signs spray-painted with various phrases.

It was striking.  These people didn't have a pot to piss in but they were willing to cobble whatever they could steal or buy in order to show their support.

They're not going away.  Not any time soon.

At best their willingness to be open is the sort of visual warning you'd want to know not to interact with them.  Think of it as the "Ed Hardy shirt" of politics.

And second best it's likely that they're going to die off at a faster rate than the rest of the population due to other bad decisions.

But changing their minds?

No way.  Not any time soon.

They're here, they're misinformed, they're confrontational and they're not going anywhere.

Trump is as much their own personal identity as is gun-owner or that their great great Grand Pappy was in The War of Northern Aggression.

If books are still written in a hundred years, Trump supporters will be studied as the textbook example of the Sunk-Cost Fallacy.

Trump is the living embodiment of their racism, hate and stupidity. They can't reject him because to reject him is to reject themselves.

Skarekrough: Trump is as much their own personal identity as is gun-owner or that their great great Grand Pappy was in The War of Northern Aggression.


100% this.

They don't care about any sort of facts or figures about the economy or jobs or unions etc etc etc. They're not voting their wallets, they're voting their identity. The GOP has worked hard to build this identity, and Trump spent every day of his presidency elevating their identity as that of the ideal true American.

Maybe when he's dead
 
2022-06-20 5:19:43 PM  
Maybe, but it'd take a lot. He'd have to actively work to ban guns, release his taxes to prove he's broke, admit the election wasn't stolen, and bang Hillary on 5th AVE. But even then....
I get the feeling that even if TFG** went to jail there'd be fools sending money to Jr. or complicit Barbie to deposit in his commissary account.

Trump could proclaim the sky green and Red States will all be passing laws next week calling for the imprisonment of anyone who calls the sky blue.

They will once it is no longer fun for them to do so. From the policies they advocate and vote for, the Trump supporter is a "me first" type person. When a school is shot up the concern is not for the dead kids, but rather about why should they be "punished" as law abiding gun owners. As gun responsibility goes, as how their gun ownership might negatively affect others, they have no concern. When they oppose abortion, it is about their kids and life, the state of the life of the woman needing the abortion is of no concern.

Well being a Trump supporter plays into this selfishness and their lust for attention. It also plays into their desire to "stick it" to the libs. When they wear their Maga gear, it gets them praise from the cult, and ire from the "libs". When a "lib" is triggered by their Trump support or a praise from a fellow Maga's, they get the attention they deserve. At family functions, Maga allows them to usurp the spotlight and be the center of attention, while triggering lib family members. When you look at them and their movement, it is easily to tell it is all about "look at me, I am an attention whore". It gives them real estate in the heads of liberal leaning family, friends, acquaintances, and coworkers.

I remember while at the pet food aisle at my local Walmart Neighborhood Market getting food for my cat, some dude decked head  to toe in Maga gear walked down the aisle. I ignored him. So he went through the aisle twice more trying to get my attention, I did not bite. I denied him his attention whoring.

My point is if we want to get then off of Trump's jock, you need to take away the fun of being a Trump supporter from them. Do not debate them or in any way acknowledge their trolls. If needed patronize them. It is not like you will change their mind if you do, you will instead entrench them more into Trumpism. Do your talking in the voting booth. If you want to sway anyone, go after the non-political swing voter, and tell them about all the January 6th stuff. Arguing/debating Magas is just a waste of time and effort because that is what they want, and their goal is to frustrate you.
