There also comes a time when you, as a voter, are supposed to put the greater good of the country ahead of entertainment or pettiness. That time was before you cast your ballots, by the way.

You knew he was a nut but you decided to put him in position to start World War III anyway.  Farking brilliant.

They were hoping he'd be a good nut, like Mr. Peanut. But we got a bad nut, like...bitter almonds.

Wake me up when they figure out that the same faction that sent their jobs overseas is the same faction backing the GOP they voted for... once they do that, we'll have a shot at moving PA into the 21st Century.

And yes, they may not like black people, but who do you think have them loans to move into your neighborhoods?

See my point?  I hope so.  If you do there's hope for you yet.

Unpresidential 70 year-olds don't suddenly become more presidential once in office. And you knew that when you voted for him.

Registered Republican Brian Rush said Trump was not his first choice, but he voted for him anyway because of his discontent with the status quo.

You voted for a con-man race-baiting misogynist. But NOW you regret it. Thanks, asshole. Your regret and $3.50 will get you a latte.

Liberals said Trump was a racist who was incapable of performing his duties and a danger to the country. So let's keep interviewing the people who were suckered by him instead of listening to the people who were right all along.

fragMasterFlash: GOP - Greedy Old Pricks


I've prefer Greedy Old Pedophiles.  The GOP has been statement covering up sexual misconduct for decades.  It's a poorly keep secret that as long as you're a Republican officeholder, the RNC will see to it that your victims remain silent.
 
2017-08-30 07:31:19 PM  
Look, he'll finally recognize his responsibilities in his second term and become more presidential than you could ever imagine. Can we really say that about Little Marco or Pocahontas? Besides, reelecting him will sure piss off the libs!

Subby means a third of the supporters involved were Trump supporters to begin with.

Fake news is fake.

"We know he's a nut. Everyone knew he was a nut. But we voted for him because we're nuts."

This is going to be just like how you can't find a single soul that voted for Dubbya these days, truly amazing that he won when no one voted for the guy.

These people really should be branded, for the good of society because the hats and bumper stickers are going to disappear but they'll still be among us.

/sear a Trump style T into their heads, make the stupid burn

I found an error in that story:

"Trump won Pennsylvania last year by roughly 44,000 votes after a recount was conducted in the Keystone State."

Here, I'll fix that:
"Trump won Pennsylvania last year by roughly 44,000 votes after his friend Putin helped him out."
 
2017-08-30 07:32:16 PM  
Why the everloving F*CK did you vote for his ass?!

Oh, wait.  It's killing the country instead.  Good jorb.

Let's be fair, there are a lot of people that were straight up conned, a lot of us saw it coming, but for others they won't believe until they actually believe it.  It sucks to be conned, let's not mock these people who are willing to admit it happened.

The Rust Belt hates the Clintons.

That's why a lot of traditionaly blue states went red in 2016.

Well unfortunately the rest of us aren't Eric Cartman, so when Trump makes chili out of your parents, we're not really going to be interested in licking your tears. But only this kind of betrayal, which you obviously knew was coming eventually, is how you end up with voter's remorse... Yep, that's stigginit. Toldja!

Well, your mistake here is that you seem to think the "race-baiting" and "misogynist" parts are what bothers these people. They're not.

The fact that the Keepin' Out the Mexicans wall isn't being built yet and Joffrey hasn't gifted all of the out-of-work white guys with well-paying jobs in their hometowns is the part they have a problem with. LOL

You didn't have to travel far outside either city to find the rubes though. All the counties around Pittsburgh used to be vote Democrat regularly but now they're solid Republican.

Obama was right when he said that people in PA cling to guns and religion because those seem to be the only reasons anyone in PA votes Republican.

I still have hope for Trump. One day he will get up before the country, lean into the microphone, and ask if anyone has some pudding.

It wasn't even Trump's con.  It's been public knowledge for a good thirty years that Trump is an egotistical, racist scam artist and a grifter.

People who voted for him conned themselves.

Yeah, the people here (there are already a few) who think that these people were fooled into voting for an incompetent asshole may not be as dumb as Trump voters, but they're close.

Republicans vote for incompetent assholes BECAUSE they are both demonstrably incompetent (being able to do stuff and know stuff is for homos, apparently) and colossal assholes. This was Joffrey's appeal to these people. THEY VOTED FOR THIS. THEY KNOW HE'S A STUPID ASSHOLE AND VOTED FOR HIM ANYWAY.

This is why they deserve no understanding or acceptance for their alleged remorse.

They're not remorseful that they voted for an incompetent asshole. They're remorseful that he hasn't been able to make his farking stupid agenda happen faster.

Basically, this is the case with all these "remorseful Trump voter" stories.

I mean, it is enraging that politicians have done very little for working class people of all races, sex and so on and you can blame both parties. One party, however, has been blatant about it. They are 'pro business' and are all about helping the wealthy and wall street and so on. Yet somehow they get the support and the votes and the elected offices.

Trump flat out lied to everyone about the truth and that he would do anything at all to help Americans. I'm glad some people are figuring this out. I just hope the tide keeps turning and we can get rid of his cancer.
