Time to explain something to people about Trump…

One thing I’ve been noticing people say is things that make it seem like Trump is uniquely arrogant, or uniquely power hungry or controlling. The short answer to this is: he isn’t. Every politician is just as arrogant, power hungry and controlling, they just prefer to pretend they don’t possess those qualities to fool you into voting for them.

Let me repeat that for you in a different way: There is nothing unique about any of the characteristics you don’t like about trump in a politician or public figure.  I know, its preferable to believe that the “orange cheeto” is uniquely bad in the area of politics, but the only reason Trump is so jarring to your sense of reality is because he doesn’t try to pretend to be someone he is not.

He’s a brash, rude, self-centered egomaniac and he’s upfront and honest about it.

He’s a sociopath that doesn’t hide his tendencies.

So is almost every single politician that has ever run for president or a position of power, locally or nationally.

Sorry kids, you’ve been dealing with Trumps your whole life, you just didn’t pay attention until it was in your face.

You don’t believe it? Well then get comfortable, you’re going to continue swimming in sociopaths until you stop pretending the one who doesn’t hide his nature is harming you more than the ones hiding in the shadows.

North Korea and War Hawks

So, I wasn’t initially paying much attention to the whole North Korea incident, because its more of the same empty threats to gas up the North Korean dictator and f o r propaganda purposes. I thought the U.S  was going to blow it off as usual…boy was I wrong.

Insert Trump’s big ass mouth telling China to “deal with North Korea or we will”…who is “we”?

…here’s your gun and ammo Trump, go get em all by yourself!

…but anyway, I was hoping to see Trump supporters rail against this bull crap, but sadly, they’ve started drinking the kool-aid again, and now I see people trying to justify the idea that the U.S. should go in and enact regime change in North Korea…..

…..because they threatened to nuke the U.S…… like they’ve been doing for decades.

…I’m sorry, but are we talking about the North Korea that can’t keep electricity going to their capital, let alone most of their country?

…The same North Korea that lives on aid from China to keep its country from falling a part?

…The same North Korea that is still at war with South Korea, but gets humanitarian aid in the form of FOOD to keep its citizens from starving to death?

…The same North Korea that can’t get a missile farther than the edge of the sea of Japan?

….that North Korea is this huge threat that cannot be allowed to continue….in its empty threats?

…besides that, we have fucking anti-missile technology…you’re telling me if they shoot a missile at the U.S that we can’t intercept and destroy it before it hits the target?

…seriously?

 

…none of you are using your brains here, there is no threat from North Korea.

…this is war hawkish bullshit to find an excuse go in and destroy another country.

…Stop sipping that kool-aid, it’s toxic.

Let’s go ahead and talk politics, why not?
