Dead Cat, No Bounce

His strongest supporters are generally uneducated older voters. But among the many peculiarities of the Trump presidency is his lack of interest in issues like Social Security, Medicare, and VA benefits.

It turns out that one of the Grand Old Party's biggest—and least discussed—challenges is not taxes, but death! “I've seen studies on how many dead republicans still vote.”

A 65-year-old voter in 2016 will be 73 by the time 2020 rolls around.

Just look at all that red on the Electoral College map! ... And that's how the GOP has set up the conditions of its own undoing. Usually, vacant lots do not vote! When you add VOTERS, the map changes!

It's overly simplistic to say that all older Americans vote Republican, they're just a lot more the do than don’t. Poll questions demonstrate just how much it's the youngest and the oldest educated people who are progressive!

It’s the uneducated old folks that attend church who are most likely to swallow Trump’s hook. They really don’t listen to Trump, they just BELIEVE in Trump. There is a strident churchianity anti-youth cult that Trump has tapped into. And he can’t afford to let go because these folks are in poor health (he wants to end their ObamaCare), live on Social Security or Disability benefits (both of which congressional republicans want to “scale back”), and frequent VA Hospitals (which Trump wants to close). Exit polls regularly find “Trump voters get gov't benefits - and like it.”

The GOP experienced the ultimate political “dead cat bounce” with neither the cat nor the bounce. Younger generations are much less strident in their religion, and less religious, than the older generations that has supported the GOP recently.

In the long run, we're all dead, but Republicans are especially dead. ... Younger voters have distinctly more liberal views than older voters: ... Many conservatives supported Trump precisely because they were panicked about approaching death and an “invasion” of MS-13 into their neighborhoods.

Well, he's dead.

Dennis Hof called himself the “Trump of Pahrump.”

Nevada brothel owner and Republican State Assembly candidate Dennis Hof was found dead Tuesday.

Hof, a Republican, was running against Democratic Las Vegas educator Lesia Romanov. Now she faces "real stiff" competition.

The infamous former six-term sheriff Joe Arpaio of Phoenix was among the attendees at a birthday bash for the old pimp.

Arpaio said he had taken part in some of Hof's efforts to campaign for the Nevada state Assembly.

Hof, who fashioned himself as a Donald Trump-style candidate, called himself the "Trump of Pahrump."

Nye County Sheriff Lt. David Boruchowitz said an employee at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch brothel summoned authorities a little before 11 a.m.

Dennis Hof was found dead.

Hof was pronounced dead Tuesday after he was found "unresponsive and not breathing" a little before 11 a.m. at the Love Ranch brothel.

The county coroner was also at the party. She says an autopsy will be conducted by the Clark County coroner in Las Vegas. The Nye County sheriff's office says there's no indication of foul play.

If you are a trailer park Republican that couldn't buy a hooker for 5 minutes, you were advised to see Dennis' brother - Jack or just Beat It!.

Put up or Shut Up!

Trump now denies that he offered Elizabeth Warren $1 million to take a DNA test proving her Native American heritage, even though he did!

Warren responded to the president's challenge and released the results of a DNA test showing she has a distant Native ancestor.

Besides this incident, there are 17 other times Donald Trump said one thing and then denied it.

"I didn't say that. You'd better read it again," Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about his $1 million offer.

In a series of tweets on Monday, Warren called on Trump to pay the $1 million to charity.

“NIWRC is a nonprofit working to protect Native women from violence,” Warren said, referring to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center. “More than half of all Native women have experienced sexual violence, and the majority of violent crimes against Native Americans are perpetrated by non-Natives. Send them your $1M check.”

Warren is viewed as THE Democratic opponent for Trump in 2020 and Trump reiterated his belief he would easily defeat her.

Myth: "Republicans are 'entitled' to respect."

Respect is something you EARN.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Republican Kevin Cramer held numerous town hall meetings since taking office in 2013, none of them more contentious than Thursday’s event at a Fargo coffee shop.

Many in the audience at a packed Beans Coffee Bar heckled Cramer, including immediately after he opened the question-and-answer session with a prayer.

“Pray for the Muslims,” one person offered. “Pray for Hispanics,” another said.

Cramer was roundly booed over his support of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Trump’s dealings with Russia.

Anyone who voted this MORON, this IDIOT, this BULLY into office is not 'entitled' to respect. They have earned our pity.

Donald Trump Has Unleashed a New Wave of Bullying in Schools: Kids might not get the details of immigration policy, but they absolutely understand Trump’s message of rage and hate.

When the teacher asks little Johnny: "Why did you bully Steve?" Johnny answers: "I didn't bully Steve, Steve tried to bully me!" (Seizing the role of victim is a common republican ploy.)

So what is at the root of this bullying? A cold and distant mother? Maybe one who showered her son with gifts, but not love? One who would take him to a fine restaurant, but wouldn't make him a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch?

So who claims to be the victim of bullying?

Just tell me being married to an ass-wipe does not stink!

Pity the fool that voted for Donald Trump. Pity is a form of respect!

We should be kind to America's First Victim — Melania Trump

Mr. Trump, who has never liked strong women, brutally pressured Angela Merkel of Germany and Britain’s Theresa May. The last thing he wants is a united family, so he plays on Europe’s divisions, openly courting rebellious members of the bloc who promote his toxic views.

'entitled' to respect?

Not in my book.

Poor fools. Poor STUPID fools. Sad.

Air Force #2

BBC Video captured the scene at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport as the president had a piece of toilet paper stuck to his left shoe.

The toilet tissue stayed attached to Trump’s shoe as he exited the presidential limo and walked up the steps to Air Force #2.

Eventually, a member of the president’s entourage picked it up.

Of course, the internet had a field day. “How’s that for a metaphor?“

“I honestly cannot believe it’s taken this long for Trump to board with toilet paper trailing from his shoe.”
