So I met an actual trumpster today working at the local hardware store.

I was dumbfounded by his adherence to pure bullshit.

At one point in our somewhat amicable exchange he claimed that income tax was a bad idea and the country could be funded by "tariffs".

He was a guy working at (I am guessing) would be about $14 an hour. I forgot to ask if he would like to be ripped off if he worked for drumph.

He just ignored points such as drumph's 10,000 plus documented lies.

I conclude that they cannot be moved from their cognitive dissonance positions.

I left him with the thought that millions of people are bankrupted by health care costs.

He was the first trumpster I have encountered here in Northern CA. I've met many many others who are enraged by drumph.

Still, it is rather scary.

Zzzzzzzzz

3. I am surrounded by them

I live and work in North Central Oregon and it's unbelievable how ignorant people can be of how the world outside of their little fishbowl works.

I said something, excitedly.. at work the other day about the Portland Trailblazers winning and moving on to the Western Conference Finals, and one of my Trumpster coworkers pipes up with "Yeah I like it when everyone says they can't win and then they do.. people count them out, and polls and stuff. you know, like Trump!" I just stared at him for a long silence, turned and walked away. Total disconnect.

I just can't with these people.


Your co-worker has a great point, and you're too much of a bitch to see it.

4. My former best friend

At least we had one last talk.

I spent about an hour-patiently winning every argument he made one at a time. And at the end his response was why not just give him a chance. I can't believe a person I respected could turn into such a malignant tool.

He used to respect my opinion. Would call & ask for it even.

After the talk I realized no amount of facts or common sense will change a magat. They are true victims of a long term brainwashing campaign.

A treasured best friend, just thrown away because of a transient political office.  My God.

I feel bad that this DUer is surrounded by other DUmmies.

I have a feeling that this DUmmie's "patiently winning" went sort of like this...
Friend makes a factual statement. DUmmie screams "TRUMP IS A NAZI" then declares itself the winner.
Friend shakes his/her head and makes a different factual statement. Dummies screams "TRUMP IS A NAZI" the again declares itself the winner.
Lather, rinse and repeat.

That's a very dubious claim. Besides the many NorCal counties that went Trump, many that went Clinton did so by a less that 60-40 margin.

And some of you are friends and you're going to call, and you're going to say, 'Mr. President, please, we can't take it anymore, we can't win anymore like this, Mr. President, you're driving us crazy, you're winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I'm going to say I'm sorry, we're going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again."

Well, it may have in the sense of John McEnroe being player, line judge, and umpire. :-)

There was a time that the bouncy stories were at least half way entertaining.

At the time I posted this, I was focussed more on the fact of losing a friend (if it's a real one) over politics.  This phrase:

struck me the second time I read it.  Quintessentially DUmmie, it has the condescension, the delusion, the lying, the high-handedness, and the utter douchebaggery all in one little shitty package.
