Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 08, 2019

A prison employee in Florida who voted for President Trump argued that Trump is to blame for the current government shutdown. "I voted for him, and he's the one who's doing this," Crystal Minton told The New York Times in an article published Monday. "I thought he was going to do good things. He's not hurting the people he needs to be hurting."

Well, Trumper with an attitude like that I'm kind of glad you're hurting.

You're just a soldier in Trump's army, my friend. A draftee. Suck it up, buttercup.

It ain't so funny when the person you elected to poke a finger in the eye of liberals, burns down you house while doing so.

This dummy didn't take the warnings that the only people Donny wouldn't hurt was his 1% swamp mates.

Wanting to hurt people is the difference between me and Boaz, JeffJ, RightOCenter, MadBomber, Byrdman, Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, etc. etc.

Its really pathetic. As I have said before, and this backs it up, Trump was elected to piss off liberals. Republicans are so used to losing at everything they want to accomplish, that they don't even care about successfully pushing their agenda anymore. All they care about is pissing off the people (liberals) that they know will end up on top of the policy fights in the end anyways. Learned helplessness. Republicans are just trolls who know there is no chance of achieving any real success, so all they can do is try to inflict pain or misery on the people who they are jealous of (because those people are successful in their political agenda).

So, he's like the Nulli of America?

Their leadership doesn't have any agenda except lower taxes and remove regulations. Everything else is just different bones thrown out to attract different parts of their base. The wall is a bone for the racists.

I would say Nulli is an example of a pretty typical Republican. Especially since he, like most Republicans, doesn't understand basic economics and the law of supply and demand.

Fake News! Trump says this "Trump voter" is most likely a Democrat.

"He's not hurting the people he needs to be hurting."

My mistake. Definitely a Trump voter.

"He's not hurting the people he needs to be": a Trump voter says the quiet part out loud
www.vox.com

..."I voted for him, and he's the one who's doing this," Minton told Mazzei. "I thought he was going to do good things. He's not hurting the people he needs to be hurting."

He's not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.

Think about that line for a second. Roll it over in your head. In essence, Minton is declaring that one aim of the Trump administration is to hurt people -- the right people. Making America great again, in her mind, involves inflicting pain.

This is not an accident. Trump's political victory and continuing appeal depend on a brand of politics that marginalizes and targets groups disliked by his supporters. Trump supporters don't so much love the Republican party as they hate Democrats, a phenomenon political scientists call "negative partisanship." They like Trump not because he sells them on the GOP, but because they believe he'll stick it to the Democrats harder than anyone else....


One supporter of Pres Trump that I know spoke of fmr Pres Obama as "their President," and now speaks of Pres Trump as "our President."

I was quite surprised when, as the vox.com article notes, the Trump supporter being interviewed said the quiet part out loud.

#12, a lot of jumping to conclusions based on one sentence.

FT NYT Article

But that solidarity does not make the prison officers' situation any easier, especially since they face an added stress: The Bureau of Prisons as a general condition of employment requires that its workers pay their debts in a timely fashion. Failure to do so can result in discipline.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Your own vote will come back to bite you.

Yes, that's what marks usually think after they realize they were conned.

And that is "conservatism."

**** With the people I don't like, leave me alone.

Law and order can't come from an anarchist like Trump.
