Obama and the 57 States

Recently, one of those crazy Trump supporters tried to defend Trump’s many gaffes by saying, “Oh yeah? Well, Obama once said there were 57 states!”

All you have to do is watch the video of Obama saying “I’ve been to 50 …” and then there’s one of those long Obama pauses, and then he realizes that he had only been to 47 states, and then he says “…7 states” because he had a brain fart like all of us have and forgot he had said 50 and thought he had said 40.

Does anyone really think a professor of Constitutional Law and United States Senator who graduated from Columbia and Harvard doesn’t know how many states we have?

I’ll bet if people followed you around all day for years and recorded everything you said, you’d have a few examples as well.

And seriously, if that is the only example you can find of Obama misspeaking — compared to the daily ones Trump has — you’re really showing your bias here.

Trump’s Diary

Dear Diary,

I hate this job. I never thought they’d give it to me in the first place. I mean, I just asked for it because I love the attention and thought it would help business bigly. And then I won. You should have seen Melania’s face. I thought she’d hit me.

So I’ve been trying to get out of it somehow. If I resigned they’d all call me a loser so I can’t do that, so I need them to impeach me.Trump_Mueller_QuestionsIf they do that, I can say it was a witch hunt and that way it’s not my fault. I can keep on having big rallies, the biggest ever, the biggest the country has ever seen, and I won’t have to deal with stupid people telling me all the time what I can’t do.

So I keep doing stuff to get me impeached but they just won’t do it. I mean, come on, I’ve broken how many laws already? And then I admit it publicly and brag about it?

Just yesterday I announced we’d have the G7 meeting at one of my hotels which is not only illegal but clearly against the Constitution, too.

What more do I gotta do?

Anyway, gotta go. Haven’t tweeted in fifteen minutes.

Democrats: Stop trying to appeal to people who will never vote for you

Look.

There’s like 33% of the population who will never vote for Democrats no matter what (as we have seen, based on those who are supporting Trump no matter what). These are almost all the same people who also think gay marriage should be illegal and blacks should know their place and women should be subservient and Christians should run everything.

So Democrats: Stop trying to appeal to them. Stop being afraid to standing up for what is right. It’s not going to work. All it does is discourage the majority of Americans from supporting you, because they don’t think you actually believe in anything.

Elizabeth Warren was recently asked a question about how she would respond to an “old-fashioned” supporter who believes marriage is between one man and one woman.warren
“I’m going to assume it is a guy who said that,” Warren replied, “And I’m going to say, ‘Well, then just marry one woman. Assuming you can find one.”

Ooh, snap. Some people loved it and some Democrats sweated buckets and said, “Oh, goodness gracious! She’s going to alienate some voters with that!”

Well, no, she isn’t. The kind of person who would be insulted by a comment like that would never consider voting for her in the first place.

Republicans know this. They don’t care a bit about trying to appeal to a “middle.” They say what they think. Of course, they are more confident of winning because they cheat (through gerrymandering, voter suppression, voter purges, voting machines that don’t leave paper trails and their buddy the Electoral College, but that’s a separate topic).

Democrats are always advised to “reach for the middle” and that makes them afraid to say anything that may alienate a pretend group that would consider voting for them “if only.” That group does not exist. We are the majority. We are the mainstream.

And we should act like it.
