Donald Trump Is a Lying, Traitorous, Racist Shithole of a Person

We have to tell it like it is: the president of the United States, Donald Trump, is a lying, traitorous, racist shithole of a person.

Donald Trump is a liar and lies all the time. The fact checkers at the Washington Post report:

Trump has made 2,001 false or misleading claims in 355 days, according to our database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement uttered by the president. That’s an average of more than 5.6 claims a day.

Politico put together 7 charts that demonstrate Trump’s ties to Russia. And see this timeline of Trump’s connections with Russia and Russian oligarchs put together by Bill Moyer and Co.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, President Trump denied any collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, but then added, “even if there was, it’s not a crime.”  In the interview, Donald Trump denied collusion with Russia 16 times in reference to the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. At the very least, Trump urged a hostile foreign power to break American laws and to help tilt the election in his favor.

Donald Trump is a traitor to this country. His collusion with Russia in sabotaging our 2016 election is an act of treason.

From the very beginning of his presidential campaign, Trump has shown his racist side. Calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals when he announced he was running – to his continual call for President Obama’s birth certificate, all the way to his very nice words for the Charlottesville Nazi demonstrators last summer – and now to his very recent racist rants about allowing immigrants in from “shithole countries”, the president has displayed his white supremacist attitude.

Donald Trump is a racist and white supremacist.

And from his narcissistic and greedy personality, to his cheating of employees, contractors and anyone else in his chain of relationships over the decades, and his clearly incompetence in running the highest office of the land, we can easily say Trump is a shithole of a person.

Trump is a shithole.

So, there it is. We had to say it.

Come get us, Jeff Sessions. The Constitution is waiting for you.

Yes, he is all these things, but were it not for all of his enablers and co-conspirators, he would just be back in NYC being all these things in the pleasure of his own gold-plated toilet and he wouldn’t be screwing up the country for the majority of us.

I grew up in NY and we all knew what a POS this jerk was then and he’s no different now.

There are so few people who elected this jerk who now say they made a mistake – there’s two things we can do (1) help register voters who didn’t vote in 2016 and (2) recognizing no politician (or person) is perfect, still get your friends and relatives to stop supporting any Republicans.

He speaks with all of the eloquence of an excited eight-year old. We have been brain-pounded into just reading the press’ interpretation of what he spews; it is informative to just actually “read the transcript” once in a while to keep in mind just what an imbecile we elected.

Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus, you know that, right? Coronavirus, they’re politicizing it. We did one of the great jobs. You say, “How’s President Trump doing?” They go, “Oh, not good, not good.” They have no clue. They don’t have any clue. They can’t even count their votes in Iowa. They can’t even count. No, they can’t. They can’t count their votes.

One of my people came up to me and said, “Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia.” That didn’t work out too well. They couldn’t do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. That was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything. They tried it over and over. They’d been doing it since you got in. It’s all turning. They lost. It’s all turning. Think of it. Think of it. And this is their new hoax.

But we did something that’s been pretty amazing. We have 15 people [sick] in this massive country, and because of the fact that we went early. We went early; we could have had a lot more than that. We’re doing great. Our country is doing so great. We are so unified. We are so unified. The Republican Party has never ever been unified like it is now. There has never been a movement in the history of our country like we have now. Never been a movement.

So a statistic that we want to talk about—Go ahead: Say USA. It’s okay; USA. So a number that nobody heard of, that I heard of recently and I was shocked to hear it: 35,000 people on average die each year from the flu. Did anyone know that? Thirty-five thousand, that’s a lot of people. It could go to 100,000; it could be 27,000. They say usually a minimum of 27, goes up to 100,000 people a year die.

And so far, we have lost nobody to coronavirus in the United States. Nobody. And it doesn’t mean we won’t and we are totally prepared. It doesn’t mean we won’t, but think of it. You hear 35 and 40,000 people and we’ve lost nobody and you wonder, the press is in hysteria mode.

When t-rump campaigned in San Diego during the 2016 election, I turned on the TV to listen. I was so stunned at his inability to speak in an understandable manner, his ignorance, his using the occasion to bash a local judge who had ruled against him, his awful demeanor that I could not imagine this country electing this idiot. I have not listened to him since, every time he comes on the radio I turn it off and I do everything I can to avoid looking at his image. I did not realize, until I read into your comment that you were quoting him. I really wish you had used quotation marks and properly introduced those remarks because I would not have read further. How can any mildly intelligent person read this and not be seriously alarmed that this monkey is in the White House?

Peter from South O April 13, 2020 at 9:58 am

When we stop listening because it has all become an annoying background drone we run the risk of becoming despondent. I too find listening to his bloviating, narcissistic rants painful; I yell at the TV often, but I subject myself to it so that I can make my own judgements independent of filtering/editing by broadcast producers or print editors.
We need to maintain our outrage. It is constantly getting worse. November is coming fast.
Glad I tricked you into reading it ;-)

Geoff Page April 13, 2020 at 6:01 pm

There is no risk of me becoming despondent or inured of all this shit, it just makes me very angry. Watching and listening that one time was enough for me, I don’t need any more and I certainly don’t need to watch or listen to him to formulate a judgment. I’m hoping people are maintaining outrage. I, personally, would vote for Daffy Duck if he was up against t-rump, it is that bad. Yea, I was fooled, I thought for a minute there that you were doing an impression of t-rump, Peter, that I found amusing until I realized it was a direct quote. Then, it was not so funny. Just pathetic to know this ineloquent bastard lives in the big White House.

My intention was to outrage those that were getting numb. You have the appropriate level of outrage and indignation that will no doubt get more pointed and intense as that horse’s ass continues to sabotage our society; we need to keep everyone focused/eyes on the prize.
Oh, did you hear him declare himself King yesterday? How about the campaign video that was played while we die en masse?

Gentlemen, I’ve tried both. Listening and not listening. Looking and not looking. Unfortunately, its a depressing exercise either way.
What I have learned from the absurd ‘task farce briefings’, is that he cannot read, either! I get that, no surprise, he can’t string a cogent sentence together- clearly subject, verb and object didn’t stick when he was in school. But when someone else obviously writes the text, you would think that he could at least read it with a modicum of intelligence? Nope. He can’t take his eyes off the page, doesn’t pause in the right places, down deflects his voice in the wrong parts. UGH- its like listening to a 9 year trying to read an encyclopedia! Lack of command of the subject matter, words that are too big to pronounce, and overwhelming boredom with the task! For God’s sake, it would be better if all his lies and scummy dealings at least SOUNDED better. :(

True that, Geoff, I’ll stand corrected! Yesterday I listened to Obama’s 11- minute message to Americans. What a contrast. A true orator. Unlike Bitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham, who I also can’t stand listening to, Obama did not repeat himself ONCE during the 11 minutes, got to the heart of the issues that affect us all, and delivered his thoughts with hope and positivism. God, how I miss him.
Instead, we have a man that can’t talk or read, is taking money away from WHO, and wants to put his name on my taxpayer-funded covid check. :(

Frank, you get overwhelmed with the ignorant critical thinking-impaired that bodysurferbob warns of, just let me know. I’ll help pop their bubbles for ya if ya need me. I have a huge backlog of documents on this computer…

Retired bio: I taught 4 yr olds in one of the pre-k classrooms at Lad & Lassie in El Cajon in 1986, and I agree with Geoff because THEY ALL HAD better speaking skills than this golden-spoon-in-every-orifice rich punk-ass Frat Boy. Even Matty who was so ADHD that he stood on his head during nap time and had the most amazing ability to run-on sentences for minutes at a time without interruption. Little redhead Matty could have just destroyed Trump in a debate…at 4 1/2. Without knowing what the hell he was talking about, too!

Come to think of it, that’s a scary thought about the man with the nuclear bombs at his fingertips. But I’ve been scared of that since Reagan came in who was ALSO all the things that Frank listed in this essay.

That’s even scarier because we seem to keep going downhill every four years since…

Latest decrees by the scumbag in DC:

Trump declares himself a dictator. Blue-state governors organize. A breakup is now on the table

One of the comments:

The virus came out of China just like SARS (2002) but wasn’t contained this time, and that’s on Donnie. It’s trump’s plague. He finally got something named after him.

SARS was contained by W’s administration.

MERS was contained by Obama’s admin.

Ebola was contained by Obama’s admin .

SARS 2 (covid19) allowed to spread freely by tRumps incompetence!

Facts are Facts : TRUMP’S PLAGUE

So here we go West Coast…but MASS just joined the Multi-State Council. It’s now bipartisan!
____________

NOTE: This just in from NC:
The North Carolina opposition has organized around “ReopenNC,” a Facebook group with more than 25,000 members. Ashley Smith, a co-founder of the group, started ReopenNC with two friends after hearing a rumor that Gov. Roy Cooper (D) planned to extend the state’s stay-at-home order through June. It appears that rumor was wrong—the order is still set to expire on April 19. But beyond that hiccup, epidemiologists and other public health experts have cautioned that the national economy can’t begin to recover without a massive increase in testing and infection tracing capabilities. Nevertheless, Smith simply wants businesses to open again.

“When it’s my time to go, God’s going to call me home,” Smith said. “I think that to live is inherently to take risks. I’m not concerned about this virus any more than I am about the flu.”

Smith supports Trump’s recent insinuation that he may forcibly reopen states whose governors continue to support stay-at-home orders, though it’s not clear that Trump actually has the power to do any such thing. “We are not promised a pathogen-free existence,” Smith said. “We do not have a constitutional right to not get a virus.”

Oh my f**king hell. Does this mean the gene pool is going to clear out of stupid? One can only hope it doesn’t take so many of the rest with them…

I’m so old I remember when this online newspaper had some journalistic integrity. This reads more like a petulant social media rant of a foul-mouthed person. I can say that independent of my opinion about the president.

If your intent was to sway anyone’s opinion, you failed at the first line.

Only a t-rump supporter would write what you just did, in which case, I’ll repeat my earlier comment, t-rump supporters deserve all the insults we can heap on them. Journalistic integrity has nothing to do with it, look at the opening line, it was never intended to be straight journalism.

And the scrutiny is deserved. But it’s never an excuse to act hateful yourself.

As for Geoff, no I am not a trump supporter nor did I vote for him. But I don’t insult or disregard those that do. That’s a surefire way to help get him reelected.

Geoff Page April 16, 2020 at 5:14 pm

I repeat, it was not intended to be straight journalism, THIS WAS AN OPINION PIECE, the title alone should have told you that. But, can you argue the facts in the piece? Why can’t a person act hateful toward a hateful person, what would you do? This is how angry he has made people, even people who are not hateful by nature. You don’t insult or disregard people who vote for him? How do you reason with people who refuse to acknowledge what he has actually done? If they give him a pass on everything in this article, they are not worth arguing with. The few people I know who did vote for him and continue to like him are not people I could ever sway with any intelligent argument. One is just too stupid and the other is very intelligent but a conservative Republican who only cares about making money and thinks poor people are to blame for their lives. How do you argue with that shit? I have no use for anyone who supports that idiot.

Triggerfinger, one gets to the point when only the most explicit language can be used to describe something or someone who so foul. No other means of expression can possibly communicate just how stinking awful the subject matter is in order to do a modicum of justice. As the son of two San Diego English/Lit high school teachers (father & stepmom) and a published author, my opinion for what it is worth is that Frank’s rant was ENTIRELY APPROPRIATE. Just exactly what part of the rant was incorrect or not factual?

Why to we say ‘I’m gonna go take a crap’ when what we are doing is actually LEAVING a crap not taking it. Sure is a lot of crap stinking up the place…Where’s Guy Fawkes, Mr. Clean, Robin Hood, and the Lone Ranger when you need them???

retired botanist April 16, 2020 at 3:21 pm

Sorry, Trigger, I need clarification: It seems virtually impossible to inject “thought” into discussion on a subject that simply is void of any real “thought”. The subject is pompous, knee-jerk rhetorical reaction, if you are referring to any of Trump’s dialog? If you are referring to the comments from Seal, Geoff, Peter, Frank, etc, are you saying “what’s the point if you are just preaching to the choir?” Is that the “echo chamber” you’re referring to?
If you haven’t picked up on it yet, people need a forum, whether its populated by Trump, Biden or Bernie supporters (or hopefully all of them), to express their rage and frustration at the ineptitude of our tax-payer funded government to act responsibly in this perfect storm of 2020. Take your pick:
1) the Treasury has now totally cocked up on the distribution/website/and apportionment of the stimulus checks 22 million people are relying on.
2) The small business fund is already out of money and small businesses are tanking by the minute (but the airlines and cruise ships will seemingly be just fine).
3) The testing program, whether its antibodies, or even if one actually has the damn virus, seems to be wholly inadequate, (unless you are a member of Congress) in our (unfairly defined as by Trump, I guess he wants us redefined as a 3rd world country?) 1st world country.
4) But let’s re-open all of the country, no, some of the country, no, whichever Govs want to re-open the country. Meanwhile, he wants to adjourn Congress altogether.
5) And let’s- RIGHT NOW (and backed by loser Dr Birx) point fingers behind at WHO and remove our funding, when we don’t have a SINGLE DIGIT pointing forward to a cohesive plan forward.
Yeah, I’ll take the the forum, expletives and all, b/c the population needs this space.
Trigger, I don’t care who you support politically, but if you have good arguments to rebut the 5 points above, please share.
PS- hey, did I get thru this without swearing/insulting?! Hah, gonna hi five myself :-)

And here’s more of Trump LIES AND MAKE-BELIEVE THAT IS KILLING PEOPLE THIS VERY INSTANT:

One month after Rose Garden speech, Trump’s pandemic response is near collapse

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/4/13/1936907/-One-month-after-Rose-Garden-speech-Trump-s-pandemic-response-is-in-near-collapse

Exactly one month ago today, Donald Trump stood in the White House Rose Garden and announced, with a row of beaming corporate CEOs behind him, a new “Google”-built website for COVID-19 tracking and testing and a new “nationwide” partnership with companies like Walmart, Target, and CVS to open COVID-19 testing sites.
______

My latest Purple Belt caught this six weeks ago, late 40s and is the office manager/first face people talk to when walking into the alt high school she works at.

They refused to test her because she had ‘other’ symptoms along with the dry cough, high fever, headache, lung congestion… but by the time she went in, after 10 days and not getting better, she was sneezing, too. As my biologist neighbor remarked: so what? They think someone can ONLY CATCH ONE VIRUS AT A TIME? Are they stupid? He also wondered just who the hell is running this show…but they’ve lived on the property to the north of me for almost 50 yrs and I assumed it was a snark…

There is almost zero testing being done in this Trump-supporting county. Probably going to be a lot of houses for rent or sale in the next few months I would imagine…and that’s not a snark.

Though Bezos’ comments after going up in his interestingly-shaped little rocket ship sure showed just how well he thinks of all the little people he screws over, eh?

Heh heh.

I have one more thing to add. I think mueller wasted investigation plus an even deeper look would reveal Trump is on Putin’s payroll. I think I herd on the Jan 6 investigation McCarthy commented he thought Trump was on Putin’s payroll. I think a lot of Republican people like Mitch McConnell also salute Putin. Think all, Putin is destroying this country without firing a shot. Asshole like Trump-and other mercenary assholes. Flynn, Navarro, Bannon et al. Russia always approached American presidential candidates and offered them assistance running for the presidency, Adele Stevenson, John Kennedy these guys wrote about it in their books. Yea sir Trump is nothing but a moron cheap bum. If he ever gets assassinated that day should be declared a national holiday like the 4th of July!

sealintheselkirks July 14, 2022 at 12:30 pm

Oh Harriet,

Wait until the next Rethuglican El Presidente for Life gets into office. We haven’t seen anything yet. Drumpf was only a preview of coming attractions I’m sorry to say. A far more intelligent, vicious, Talibangelical right wing theocrat will do far more damage. Florida’s Gov DeSatan comes to mind. Or maybe just go ahead and crown Alioto or Thomas perhaps? Judge for life to president for life doesn’t seem like much of a jump…in a religious theocracy. Hell, they can do both! And be the executioner, too!

Now even the ‘identity politics,’ which marked the main difference between these two corporate-owned parties, is getting thrown overboard because unfortunately Biden and his crew of aging rightwing neoliberal corporate wealthy Democrats are enablers of the Rethuglican party politics because they are NOT fighting back in any meaningful way. Do they WANT to lose? Feels like it as they let Fascists re-write state laws to legally overturn elections. So much for voting in a deteriorating banana republic…

That this president is all about ‘consensus’ with Fascists and is willing to make deals for another lifetime Federal court judge because 4th Reich Mitch ‘promises’ to not block other judge nominees shows just how far the Ds have jumped rightward since Carter who wasn’t much of a choice, either, for that matter though Carter has certainly redeemed himself since in my estimation.

Does anyone really believe that crap from McConnell??? Fool me once…but fool me a hundred times and Biden STILL make deals with, to put it bluntly, the enemy? WTF is up with that? Stop it you idiot! FIGHT them with every weapon an Imperial Presidency has (and it is an imperial presidency). Don’t be a useless prick.

Biden has lived up to his rock-solid lifetime political record of always siding with Republicans (as did B. Clinton). It’s not as if we didn’t know this (those of us who politically kept track all these years or looked up his Senate voting record). He’s always been a DINO. The ONLY reason he became president was because people were very scared of Drumpf and the Fascist MAGATS. He never would have been elected otherwise.

My question is now what? When voting isn’t really a choice and one side stacks the deck against voting and the other side lets them and then calls his base THAT ELECTED HIM ‘activists out of step with mainstream Democrats’ and expects to have them vote for him again??? WTF? Alienate the woman voters, the young voters, the minority voters, the educated voters, and anybody even a smidge to the left of rightwing and what does he have left? November is going to suck and 2024 is going to be horrifying if this keeps up.

This cartoon by Jen Sorensen pretty much depicts what I think we are dealing with in oh-so-many ways even though it’s from 2013 and written about the debt ceiling fight back then. Remember that this was BEFORE Drumpf and does anybody think it’s gotten better or is there even more insanity spewing from the mouth?

One Of The ‘Worst People In Modern American Politics’ Just Made A Great Point

Mehdi Hasan: “If the man who was once dubbed the ‘prince of darkness’ and his right-wing daughter—if Dick and Liz say the Republican Party has gone off the rails, just think about how extreme that must make the GOP right now.”

I really didn’t think we could get worse than Cheney & his sockpuppet Wbush after the corrupt Supreme Court broke The Constitution and the Florida State Constitution to put them in… Boy was I ever wrong about that! But Dick and daughter are NOT forgiven for what they’ve done just because they’ve come out against TFG. Dick most definitely helped Fascism grow in this country. Not much doubt about that. As for being the liar that caused the destruction of Iraq…

Honestly, I think Florida Gov DeSatan is even worse though he has about the same level of common sense and revenge-oriented behaviors using state power against people. These two definitely prove that you don’t have to have an overall intelligence level to get an elite ivy league university degree…

Its not about Republican or Democrat, political philosophies, opinions, on and on..its all about ‘the revelation brought on by Trump being elected president & all the subsequent fringe lunny tune unfit morons copy cats, like Green, Gaetz, etc etc… that possible up to 40% of supposed reasonable American adult voters not only still ignore the now indisputable confirmation of the absolute complete self-serving literal megalomanic malignant narcissist socio-path pathological lying criminal treasonous traitor serial whore mongering wife cheating draft dodging silver spoon coward delusions buffoon moronic manipulating zero morals dangerous evil insurrectionist openly endorsing the murder of his own Vice-President greatest threat to America ever by far Trump…blind to Trump caring less of them..only using their them as pawns, stooges, fools, suckers & enabling him to actually support policies that hurt them..but worse to destroy America & a beakon of democracy. Idiots, any Republican would have pushed the same policies and Supreme Court nominees.we never needed that sick maniac to have his hand on the nuclear buttons & secrets..for which now we know he stole & have been compromised by Russians & Chinese..who any American with a brain bigger than a pea know Putin wanted his puppet in office . God help us all! Including the moron idiots who allowed & are continuing to allow this & they are so lacking logic reason and any intelligence to realize their own demise. By the way Ive never been a Democrat or Republican, just a logical, critical thinking American . George Washingtom himself stated which is now so obvious, political parties will destroy American democracy

You forgot ‘frat boy’ and the famous quote by his brilliant prof at Wharton School of Business about “the stupidest student he ever had in his class” but your rant pretty much hit the reality mark. I think I actually cracked a smile a couple of times while reading it.

Unfortunately I very much doubt any of the multitudes of gods we have invented will help us out of this mess. They never have with any other messes. We are well and truly stuck in the poo I greatly fear.

The Dem leadership embraced Reagan’s neoliberalism because it would make them richer than they already were, and that pretty much cooked our goose from the 1980s to our current state of horrifying reality.

As to George Washington… Seems like he didn’t like Democracy for all, only for his economic Class, gender, and race. Sorry George, you were wrong. It isn’t political parties that cause the problems it’s the politicians in those political parties and the wealthy that buy them. Class War is what this country was founded on and at the moment, unfortunately, we seem to be sliding rapidly backwards in time instead. What’s your poison, 1934 Germany or 1857 US? Both dates seem acceptable to the GOP…maybe combine them a little, eh?

But you can go ahead and pray to Zeus or Ra or Horus or even to your cat or parakeet for whatever emotional solace you can find in doing so. If it makes you feel a little bit better, at this point I’d say do it! What I did is throw the big yellow ‘jingle bell’ ball for the dog after mailing my ballot off yesterday morning. At least she’s happy, cares not a bit about human politics, and is just ecstatic that snow is back for her to roll in and dig for balls under. And today, after reading more grim political news this morning (why do I torture myself?), another 3+ inches fell overnight just for her so we went out and did it again. I have one wet and very happy gray-faced Golden Retriever at the moment…

But I think I voted for about six candidates, all in state races. Not a single one in this county as there wasn’t anything but GOP vs GOP or just the GOP incumbent. Candidate flyers quotes: “We must go back and rediscover our Nation’s founding” and “The US Constitution is perhaps the most important document ever written for the benefit of mankind other than the Bible.”

What a choice! And I’m also non-affiliated with either party so I get way too many ads stuffed into the mailbox from both for my trouble.

I really hope the intelligent side of Washington State voted but we are a mail-in state so it is a bit easier. No gun-toting vigilantist types filming you or following you home at our drop boxes. At least not yet. What people on this side of the state don’t realize is that money flows from west to east just like it does from north to the slave state GOP south needing more in federal taxes. I don’t think these people really understand just how much ‘blue’ areas keep the red citizens afloat financially. That so many lower economic voters haven’t figured that out yet (since GOP-run states are all at the bottom of the economic barrel in every category) bodes great ill for the future.

Big sigh. Maybe we’ll get lucky?
