Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 05, 2018

President Trump's more sophisticated supporters in places such as Washington and New York claim that his presidency is a raging success because he has appointed conservative judges, cut taxes and turbocharged the economy. Trump himself evidently disagrees, because he is not running the midterm campaign based on his supposed achievements. Instead, Trump and his fellow Republicans are closing the election with the most naked appeal to racial prejudice since the dark days of Jim Crow when Democrats in the South would compete to display their fervor for segregation. On Halloween, the Trump campaign released a commercial featuring a cop-killing undocumented immigrant named Luis Bracamontes. It has been compared to the 1988 Willie Horton ad. But that is unfair. This is much worse.

"Democrats let him into our country," the ad says. "Democrats let him stay." Actually, Bracamontes entered the United States when George W. Bush was president, and he was arrested and released by Trump's favorite sheriff, Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz.

Trumplethinskin talks about making America great again... he longs for bygone days. Where and when he grew up in Queens it was 97% anglo white... now its 27% anglo white with Hispanics 25% Asians 23% Blacks 19% and the rest.

You bet its about race.

When all you got are lies, make sure you repeat them loud and often, so your brain dead supporters will believe the lie.

Still lying, still trolling, nothing about your racist coddling.

On topic:

"Democrats let him [police killer Luis Bracamontes] into our country ... Democrats let him stay ... . Who else would Democrats let in?"

-- campaign ad tweeted by President Trump, Oct. 31, 2018

Trump's ad claims that Democrats let Bracamontes in and that they let him stay. But the reality is that he snuck over the border under both a Democratic (Clinton) and a Republican (Bush) and was deported under both presidents. He returned again when a Republican (Bush) was president. Then he remained in the country through Obama's term -- but it was a Republican local official who dropped the pending case.

Pinning the blame on any political party for Bracamontes's killing spree is a fool's game. No one let him in, and no one let him stay; he kept sneaking back in and escaped notice until he murdered the police officers.

The president earns Four Pinocchios."

Never made THC oil. Dabbed it once. Way too strong. You have to have a high tolerance level for Corkus oil.

Trump's racism is a dog whistle for Trumpublicans.

They will be out in force to vote tomorrow.

Sadly. It seems like democrats will be out in force on Wednesday.

Marching or protesting or crying. Because they haven't managed to do shht over the past two years and they're going to lose tomorrow.

And they are all pikers. I can't believe Nulli even lives in California. He sounds like an okie from Muskogee.

Drinking until you are so blind drunk that you try to rape little girls is APPARENTLY ok to a so called "Conservative"....however, indulging in a little something that is not a poison and grows naturally, wont kill you and even has some medicinal value and that even helps folks quit drinking until they are blind drunk is a horrible horrible crime.

That there are still Americans in prison today because of this ignorant Conservative and hateful ideology is a crime in and of itself.

So optimistic! NOT!

2 years of Trump is very exhausting and I know it is tough but don't lose lose hope just yet.

Have you ever seen a flock of geese? (when in flight, they are called a skein, a team, or a wedge but whatever) When in flight they follow the lead goose. That means they all say YES to that goose no matter where he goes. Sometimes one goose splits off and some geese say YES to that goose. Then they might come back together again. The point is all America has to do is say YES to a smart goose.

All America has to do is say yes to sanity and yes to a leader that will show us the sane way and the majority of us will all say yes and fly that way.

Trump is not that goose. Trump is one stupid goose, he hates all the brown geese, but there are a lot of stupid geese that like him, so all these geese will say yes to him no matter what.

It is up to the rest of us to say YES to the leaders that will fly the majority of us in the right direction.

I see some really good leadership coming up in the Democratic Party. This election should tell us a lot about how well they are doing and how many people will say YES (we can) to them.

Over a day and still nobody can identify what race Trump was being racist against?

#37 | Posted by Avigdore at 2018-11-06 08:56 AM | Reply

Is Avig stupid or what? Luis Bracamonte is definitely Mexican. Like drunken driving, which is very difficult to effectively control, control of repeat border jumpers is difficult. The border with Mexico is the basis for Trump's campaign of fear, even though the vast majority are no threat. Definitely a problem which occurred under Bush and Arapaio. Brazen lying is charting America's future rendering democracy moot.
