Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Trump campaigned against foreign aid. He has complained about foreign aid as president, but now that his trade war is pushing farmers to bankruptcy, the president suddenly wants to use taxpayer money to buy the crops and give them away as foreign aid.

Donald Trump's desperation is transparent, as Mr. Capitalist is now proposing a socialist program to bribe farmers so that they don't give him the boot in 2020.

Of course he is.

And the rubes will take the money and vote for him again.

We have to stop being surprised that people are stupid hypocrites who can't see beyond the end of their own nose for the next week.

Kudlow came out and said that tariffs hurt American consumers, but a 25% price hike in consumer goods is worth it.

So very white of him.

It's only Socialism if the money goes to brown or black people.

Socialism = crony capitalism. That's a refreshingly honest take on how it's implemented.

Here's an idea Farmers: grow food for people.

Instead of monsanto sprayed soybeans for hog feed and cow corn for feedlots and biofuel.
Instead of importing south-of-the-border E-coli and botulism that's been ripened with gas in a hothouse.

Grow up and grow food. No Farms No Food No Freebies.

Hey, Monsanto/Bayer - SUCK IT - You, and your genetically modified seed crap too.

- and your family.

President Trump on Tuesday rushed to placate furious farmers and Senate Republicans about his escalating trade war with China, with lawmakers now considering a package of fresh bailout funds to quell a rebellion in agricultural states.

Stop using the terms bail outs and subsidies to refer to these contributions to farmers and start calling them what they are: Welfare.

Hope you are rich or close to a farming community. When mass starvation happens because without all the GMO mass produced food we can't farm enough to feed everyone those will be the only folks who can get food.

On the plus side the die off would make Nulli happy for the first time in a decade.

Congress shouldn't allow Trump to spend billions covering up the disastrous effects of his personal trade war.

But they also shouldn't have allowed him to invoke tariffs for "national security" purposes in the first place, so i don't have any faith they'll stop this garbage.

In Trumpworld 15 Billion to pay off Trump voters who are being decimated by his incompetence is fine.

But give a poor kid a sandwich and the world is ending.

"In Trumpworld 15 Billion to pay off Trump voters who are being decimated by his incompetence is fine."

In Trumplandia incompetence is the norm. Like Lying and Delay and Obstruct is the new norm.

In Trumplandia the President is only President of the People he likes. The rest are not Real Americans so those People do not matter to him.

And here in Trumplandia the President does not cooperate with and is an apparent enemy of our Congress because of Reasons (mostly because it is controlled by Democrats who are not Real Americans).

Farmers are just lucky he likes to pretend he can drive a tractor.

Tomorrow Fox News could change his mind.
