Just give it to them


“This way, Mexico will have to pay much less money [for the wall]. And that’s good, right? Is that good?”

I think Trevor’s team missed the point of Trump’s statement, which to me was just a back-handed, veiled dig that reiterated his witless promise to still make Mexico pay for the wall. Why people ever believed that would happen, and why people still believe it, is just a preposterous mystery. As a plot device in a moronic thriller: 1 star.

“I love all people, rich or poor. But in those particular [cabinet] positions, I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense?”

Trevor’s larger point that Trump’s supporters fully, utterly support Trump no matter what he says or does is right on target. He is the loudest idiot in a room-full of god damned idiots.

In fact, at this point, my feeling is that we need to let the Republicans pass this health bill as is.

The Democrats will get zero credit with these people for trying to mitigate the more horrific parts of the bill. If a watered-down version, a version that isn’t quite so draconian, gets passed, the Democrats will be blamed for it. “It’s not working because we didn’t get everything we wanted in it” will be said quite loudly, and the clapping people in this video will agree with that, because that’s what they do. People will be miserable, but many of them will blame the Democrats for it.

If, however, the bill passes in its entirety, there will be misery, on a massive scale. The people in this video will suffer. If this bill passes with no input from the left, the cause-and-effect relationship will be as clear as it ever can be.

Just let it pass. It may be the only way to open their eyes.

Or it may not be enough. In which case, we’ll finally know exactly where we stand.


Here’s a thing about being an elitist that didn’t used to be true: if you’re not a god damned moron, you’re an elitist.
