Because it seems, based on the various rallies, protests, marches, etc. that have occurred since Trump (unfortunately) became POTUS (and the bases behind all of these events), we are the worst type of person in America, according to the Trump fanbase. ✡️♀⚗️😎
(Also, feel free to like and/or reblog in support if you are not one or more of the above. ❤️)
Trump is still running for president, even though he won the election last year and has been in office for over seven months.
Trump is still lying about (and obsessed with) crowd sizes, both for and against him.
Trump still maintains that everything he said about the violence in Charlottesville was “perfect.”
Trump still hates the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, ABC, and every other media organization that has ever reported anything critical about him. He went even further: “I really think they don’t like our country. I really believe that.”
Trump is still lying about the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, ABC, and every other media organization that has ever reported anything critical about him. For example, Trump falsely claimed the media “refused” to report that he condemned racism, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK. (They did–although even the white supremacists
didn’t take Trump’s supposed condemnation seriously,
recognizing that he was just paying lip service out of political expediency: “His statement today was more kumbaya nonsense. Only a dumb
person would take those lines seriously.”)
Trump still hates Arizona’s Republican Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain
for daring to disagree with him in public.
Trump still loves Fox News–especially Sean Hannity and “Fox and Friends in the Morning”–for consistently praising him, which Trump calls being “most honest.”
Speaking of “most honest,” Trump still claims to be the most honest person in
the country: “I’m a person that wants to tell the truth. I’m an honest
person, and what I’m saying, you know is exactly right.” (In the real
world, Trump hit a significant milestone earlier this month: 1,000 false or misleading statements, an average of almost five lies per day.)
Trump is still parroting white-supremacist talking points about the removal of statues of Confederate War heroes. (But he’s not a white supremacist! Honest!)
Trump is still declaring that his presidency has been the most
successful ever so far, and that no other U.S. president has ever
accomplished as much as Trump has in a comparably short time. (Falsely.)
Trump is still bragging about where he went to school and what a good student he was. (Falsely.)
Trump is still praising North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Trump is still planning to build his Great Border Wall at America’s expense, even if he has to shut down the government to do it.
Trump is still planning to terminate NAFTA. Well, “probably.”
I’ve been taking my mind off things lately by imagining Tony Stark’s reaction to Donald Trump announcing his candidacy for president, which would almost definitely be announcing his own candidacy because WHY NOT.
Iron Patriot? How about IRON PRESIDENT?
His campaign rallies would be catered by Hooters because he just really likes the wings.
He would promise free education and increased wages and subsidies for farms to update their equipment with Stark technology. He’d tell coal miners he’s sorry but they are going to be out of work because of course they are, but he’ll be funding grants for retraining in new industries in the areas most affected.
He’d have a reluctant Steve Rogers as his running mate with promises to revamp HUD so it actually worked. He’d promise to make Bruce Banner head of the EPA because who better to help us go green.
He’d fly into debates and bring out girls to shoot t-shirt canons.
He’d put his tax returns into a PowerPoint presentation.
He would be the ultimate showman, oozing humor and charisma. He’d personally reply to all of Donny J’s tweets. He would have lunch with representatives of basically every media outlet. On a boat.
And when someone said he was ridiculous he would agree completely and reply “but am I really more ridiculous than TRUMP?”
WATCH: Trump speaks out on Charlottesville, condemns ‘violence on both sides.’
Speaking to reporters from Trump Tower, President Trump defends his initial Saturday statement on race-fueled clashes in Charlottesville and calls out the news media for not acknowledging the ‘alt-left’ and what he considers to be 'violence on both sides.’
I feel like the significance of a sitting president still frequently holding rallies and producing ads is much larger than the response it’s getting suggests. That’s a major shift in the way the executive branch typically operates
Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt attend a Michael Dukakis for President Rally, Roseland Ballroom, 1988
Just to clarify - that’s Roseland Ballroom in New York City. I thought it was interesting to see young, hip celebrities at an event for someone universally regarded today as the ultimate nadir of cool.
Hi y’all. I never share pics of me on this blog, but I got featured in the Baltimore Sun in their article about the anti-Trump protests and I wanted to share my sign with y’all.
White silence is violence. Male silence is violence. Christian silence is violence. Straight/cis silence is violence. ALL silence is violence in the wake of Trump.
We’ve got to come together – not in the way Trump wants – but as an intersectional force of activists. This is a time for all of America’s marginalized people to unite. We’ve got to fight for each other – support one another in our struggles and defend one another when Trump, the Republican Congress and the soon-to-be Republican Supreme Court come for us. When one of us is threatened, all of us is threatened – no fight is distinct, and we have got to stand up and show up, not just against our struggles, but against the struggles of ALL of our fellow Americans – our fellow human beings.
The most powerful part of this rally was when two young, Black men instructed the crowd to raise their fists, and led everyone in reciting Assata Shakur:
“It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
DON’T EVER LET TRUMP’S WORLD BE NORMALIZED. STAY MAD. GET MOBILIZED. FIGHT.
Peaceful Protest at the Trump Rally in San Jose CA..
-1st off I am a San Jose born and raised. My Abuelita is from Michoacan, and my Grandpa the same place.. But this is not about them.. Today I have the responsibility to set the record straight.. Yesterday during the protest I showed up in my friends car and we saw all the protestors walking towards us.. We were playing the song “F*ck Donald Trump” by Nipsey Hussle and YG, as they got close, I hopped out the car and we all started dancing and chanting “F*Ck DONALD TRUMP.” Yes I am the one with the white shirt.. People then jumped on the car and we had what we call in the Bay Area, a sideshow. Now the news would not show the positive energy of people dancing in the streets like our ancestors who would dance around a fire. In this dance there were Brown Panthers, Nortes, Surenos, Black and Brown Unity, Whites, Asians, Native, and all the other colors of the human palettes dancing and chanting. There was no violence at all. In fact even when we started to notice dents to the roof of the car, we asked people to get off and everyone obliged happily and laughed understanding that this was the only car we have.. They then began Chanting “F*ck Donald Trump” and went on with the protest walking down San Carlos st..
-Now for the Bad Apples that started the fights I do not condone that.. On top of that, the media is not showing all the Trump Supporters tantalizing and taunting the peaceful protestors.. Now Violence is never the answer.. But the media will never show the Brown Panther telling people to be peaceful.. or the Trump Supporter talking shit to all the protestors and 4 young latina woman who were protesting kept people from throwing stuff at her.. Oh no the media like CNN, MSN, Huffington Post, Fox News, ABC, and etc.. They all want that WSHH ratings.. To show that in San Jose is a bunch of Savages.. We are not savages.. In fact most of the “Illegals” that you are talking about are 2nd up to 10th generations in San jose..
-As for what happened after we left I could not tell you, except the bad apples that started acting up, were the 1st runs to run when the officers stepped in.. So do not blame everyone for what a few bad apples do.. That like saying because the KKK claim to be christian, we must assume all christians are racist.. Of course we all know that bs, so please, before you start going off on the subject that you do not know about.. Please figure how to talk to the locals.. Its 2016 we all have social media.. Hit me up if you got questions, concerns, or just want to chop it up.. I will set the records straight..
