Remember that time Howard Dean got really excited and shouted “YYEAAAHHHHHH!!” at a campaign rally. Remember how we all looked at him and were like, “well, that was friggin weird,” and collectively decided to not talk about him anymore. Remember when Mitt Romney talked about his binders full of women and we were all like, “okay, that’s different and maybe mildly sexist,” and he lost the presidential race.
Remember when Trump’s opponent, the most heavily scrutinized, over-qualified person to ever run for president was a woman? And we were all like, “well she shouldn’t lose just cuz she’s a chick, right?” and then she did. She lost because she was a chick. And when someone is breaking through a racial or gender barrier, they need to be perfect. And Hillary Clinton wasn’t quite perfect.
Donald Trump on the other hand didn’t even make an attempt at being presidential or representing the American population. He thrived on racism, xenophobia, and bigotry and an antiquated concept of what a ‘man’ is. And collectively a large portion of the American population looked at him and was like, “BLAEEAHHH LOCK ‘ER UP. THEY TOOK ‘ER JOBS. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN YOU LOOSERS,” while entirely ignoring the more unjustifiable characteristics of the juvenile they were supporting.
1. Drumpf mocking a disabled reporter
Like what. Fuggin really?
2. Trump supporting torture
‘Torture works. OK, folks? You know, I have these guys—“Torture doesn’t work!”—believe me, it works. And waterboarding is your minor form. Some people say it’s not actually torture. Let’s assume it is. But they asked me the question: What do you think of waterboarding? Absolutely fine. But we should go much stronger than waterboarding. That’s the way I feel. They’re chopping off heads. Believe me, we should go much stronger, because our country’s in trouble. We’re in danger. We have people that want to do really bad things!’
3. Trump mocking Jeb Bush
The fact that people cheered for him and laughed shows what kind of people his supporters really are. High school bully, not a president.
4. Trump saying John McCain isn’t a war hero because he was captured
The fact that anyone voted for this POS blows my mind. My family in 2008 was split between Barack Obama and John McCain. They both were outstanding people with disagreeing politics. 2016 on the other hand, I’m proud to say my family wasn’t split over agreeing that Trump is the worst person to ever campaign for, much less be elected, President of the United States. To all the Republicans who didn’t denounce Trump right then and there, you’re spineless.
5. Trump supported targeting terrorist’s families
“It’s a horrible thing. They’re using them as shields. But we’re fighting a very politically correct war. And the other thing is with the terrorists, you have to take out their families,” he explained. “They, they care about their lives. Don’t kid yourself. But they say they don’t care about their lives. You have to take out their families.”
6. Trump making fun of Ted Cruz’s wife’s appearance
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2016
Can we just point out that this tweet is still up there? Zero effort to cover up how much of an ass he is.
7. Trump cheating on his wife with no hint of regret
Oh and literally showing zero remorse for it and expressing that had he never been caught things would’ve been better. The same people that tout the nuclear family and railed against Hillary for staying with her husband voted for this guy? Double standard much?
8. Calling for a ban of an entire religion from entering the United States
This seems familiar.
9. Trump inciting violence at campaign rallies
10. Oh and last but certainly not least, never forget. “Grab em by the pussy.”
And then he fed them his “locker room talk” bull and they bought it.
But the emails guys.
