synchronicity of messaging

“It’s a coup!”

Remember that Trump/Limbaugh golf date? Limbaugh lives 10 min from Trump in PB. Funny we don’t see them together more often. Or maybe, Limbaugh did something that caught Trump’s attention & fit into a strategy he & his minions were already trying out?
Around the same time as Rush, Lou Dobbs started pushing the coup narrative. Dobbs has been using the term to describe the Mueller investigation back in February. Maybe it was Dobbs’ baby & Trump enlisted Limbaugh too?
Or...more likely...the “coup” talking point was shopped & coordinates back before the Mueller Report was released. Lookie here...even Corey Lewandowski got in on the fun!
Now we’re at the place where the bots & trolls & MAGAs are hysterically parroting the word & concept. This is to scare Democratic Congress into not using full powers vested by the Constitution to force subpoena response.
Can one of my algorithm savvy friends @MillennialPriml @ChiefCovfefe
@Dry_Observer take a look at what’s gone down w/accounts tweeting about congressional coup since Trump went off script w/NRA yesterday?
Analysis: the “congressional coup” rhetoric heating up is to scare Dems into inaction. If they allow this, we’ve already lost the Republic. Doesn’t mean Trump isn’t going to use the new “coup” hysteria to push his boundaries even more. BUT...
...we have no choice but to power forward regardless of what an unhinged & clearly nervous narcissist in the WH does or doesn’t do. He’ll push limits until he’s stopped. He is dangerous right now, but whatever the risks, we have to uphold the law.

So Trump claims this is happening...,but I strongly suspect this is like his claim of building new border wall. Flat out lie.

And damn, Abe posted a very un-flattering pic, but Trump re-tweeted so whatever.

“Which some people call the DNC” is such a stupid thing to point out. Yes, we all know what acronyms are.

"Now we're sending many of them to sanctuary cities, thank you very much," he told a crowd in Green Bay, Wisconsin. "They ain't too happy about it. I'm proud to tell you that was actually my sick idea."
Proud of his “sick” idea. That’s who America elected to be President. Jesus fucking Christ.

I get some wanted “a change”.
i get some hated HRC
I get some thought he would become “presidential”
I get some always vote GOP
I get some are doing well off the economy and think it’s all Trump

I understand these things even if I don’t agree.

I Don't get how anyone can continue to support him,

• Nothing succeeds like the appearance of success?
• the psychology of groups (i.e. groupthink; the Halo Effect; fear of outsiders; social pressure; etc)?
• funbdementalist religion has a profound dominance/submission dynamic as well as an innate deference to authority ?

There is a coup going on. It's being perpetrated by the administration, in its attempts to nullify the House's oversight powers.

It's a stupid idea. I live in a sanctuary city. Do you think we give a fuck if the administration flies some undocumented immigrants from the border to here? We do not. Our city is a diverse city, with many immigrants (many of them no doubt undocumented) already here. Bring on more. Why not!

Trump committed obstruction of justice, according to this former deputy attorney general and acting attorney general.

For those people who believe Republicans have been cheating to win small and large elections for decades now, by every means from confusing ballot layouts and Diebold electronic systems to help from the Russians and micro-targeting using hacked data, this is a given.

I started noticing around the time of lawmakers taking wide stances in the men's bathroom, but one party seems to consistently excel at projection.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Why do politicians have to do all this shit backwards? “...if he doesn’t show up then we’ll have to subpoena him.” What the fuck?! He should have been subpoenaed on day one. Why the fuck are you asking him to show up?!

I’ve been subpoenaed a lot in my life and never once was I asked politely and given the choice to decline first.

The Dems aren't being obsequious. They are allowing them to rack up more obstruction counts in plain sight.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I’m not buying it. The Trump administration is doing a fine job hanging themselves on their own. It’s through no genius plan by the Dems. If you look up “Spineless” in the dictionary there’s a picture of a Democrat.

Looks like they are not trying to hide it anymore by admitting the “sole focus” right now:

*sips tea*


Obama never dropped below 40%. Not once.
Most of the time he was well above, whereas trump stays there or lower and is the only president to have never hit 50%. And he fucking knows it!

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Trump still doesn't have a plan to achieve his goals. He tosses shit on the walls to see what sticks. Only a fool will buy the healthcare plan that "we'll show you after you re-elect me." If you have a plan that is so damn good then show it now and guarantee your re-election. Wave your magic wand at that.
