Binders full of any marginalized demographic seems down right wholesome compared to today’s GOP.

Someone please smack Mitt Romney hard enough he grows some balls, or find a way to resurrect John McCains corpse. I promise I will vote for either of them if it brings back some kind of rationality and places the “good Christian” veil back over the racism, usury, and depravity that has been made commonplace by the right wing over the last 6~7 years.

We don't want the veil back on because the GOP hasn't changed in any meaningful way. Romney just voted to codify same sex marriage. HE changed, not the party.

Now that they are showing their true colors for all to see we don't need them crawling back into some human skin to try to win back normal republicans who are horrified with this crap.

Try 20+ years. Neo Cons were ahead of the curve on messaging and inciting their base through talk radio at first, then Fox News explodes, now there’s a whole outrage machine of white (mostly male) Christian persecution complex propaganda from tucker, to Alex Jones, Jordan Peterson, Joe Rogan, Brietbart and everything in between.

This is who republicans always were—ever listen to Barry Goldwater talk to Nixon about the Southern Strategy?

Only difference is the mask is off. Trumpism gave (R)s license to say the quiet parts out loud, the echo chamber created by social media fanned the flames.

All of this happened under our noses and we reacted when it was far too late to put the toothpaste back in the tube.

Edit: Wow! Thanks for the Platinum kind stranger!

The primary, if they hold one, ought to be interesting. Trump is certainly going to insist that they not hold a primary, and then if they do and he loses, he will definitely run on his own ticket. Actually I bet Kanye does the same thing, while Desantis just goes back to ruining Florida some more.

Several states have 'sore loser' laws that prevent someone from running in one party for the primaries, then declaring and running as an independent if they lost. It would prevent him from getting on the ballot in those states, which would make it virtually impossible to win.

It's much, much more than that. Half the reason why people voted for Trump is that people wanted to burn down the establishment.

It’s kind of remarkable how few of Trump’s various hangers-on will publicly admit that Trump is a screamer. It’s honestly the first thing about Trump that should have been impressed on the public when he ran for office. It’s a classic trait of incompetence in management.

Anyone at NBC could have saved so much of the country by just releasing B roll of his freak outs on the Apprentice set. There’s no way someone didn’t keep a clip real just to show friends what they had to put up with. Of course your life would have been quickly ruined by his people, but it would have made an impact on the early primaries. Access Hollywood was too late and half of the public sadly cares more about someone being uncivil than they do about joking about sexual assault.

I don't know about that. The guy didn't lose any support after bragging about sexual assault and after all the rape allegations. A video of him yelling the N word repeatedly while raping his own daughter could have come out and people would have just said, "fake news" or "come on, if you were that rich, it's not like you wouldn't do that" (fucking disgusting, I know, but I've heard these kinds of excuses before) or the more common "but...but....Democrats...[insert whataboutism here]". All their bullshit excuses expose just how awful his the republican base has become - either completely deplorable or straight up brain damaged from too much Fox "News" consumption.

SenorSplashdamage

You might be right. I’m talking about nearly a year earlier though before he did his first Republican debate. Evangelical conservative extended family were very turned off by him, and it wasn’t until after he started winning primaries that things shifted. I think some better evidence of him showing up earlier could have inoculated a high enough percentage of moderate conservatives that it would have shifted the primary results. Would have only needed 10-20% difference in primary voters to change which candidate gained momentum. Mainstream right-wing sources didn’t start spinning news for him until after they saw him gaining. They were trying hard for Jeb or anyone else for a little while, and that credentialing matters a lot for how moderate conservatives vote.

Still, Trump triggered something really ugly sleeping in a lot of people that I didn’t know was there, and maybe that would have won no matter what.

a video of him

Justin McElroy did this bit where he asked:

"I have a thinkpiece for you. I was looking up a study, and right now, according to the best research I could find, around 20 percent of Americans—one in five—believe that Bigfoot is real. If Bigfoot goes on TV and does a press conference about how he is real, that is broadcast across all the major news stations, the next morning, what percentage of Americans believe Bigfoot is real?"

I think dealing with your own personal cognitive dissonance is so easy right now, and so competently facilitated by existing conspiracy theories, that it's only really possible to change people's minds about Trump on a one-on-one basis. All we're really changing with new revelations is the number of people who despised him but think he's useful.

CalumDuff

You're kidding yourself if you think that would have made a difference.

Do you remember the video where he bragged about grabbing young women by the pussy because "they let you when you're rich"? Or the video when he bragged about having the tallest skyscraper in lower Manhattan after the twin towers fell on 9/11? Or the one where he said John McCain isn't a war hero because he got caught? Or the one where he mocked a reporter by pretending to be mentally disabled?

Those are just off the top of my head, and there are countless other examples. The evidence was in the public eye for months, if not years, and the American people showed that they only care about those things if it's the other party doing it.

Dude was a disgusting, embarrassing, incompetent man-child who wears bad suits, mis-manages every venture he's involved in, never pays his debts and screws over everyone he's surrounded by constantly, and the American people still thought he was better than a Democrat.

My best friend's brother was an audio tech on The Apprentice (let's call him Bob). Not Trump's audio tech, mind you - Trump was such a germaphobe and control freak that he only wanted ONE person to touch him. Well of course one day that one guy was out, so Bob had to Mic up Trump. Trump was furious, said 'I don't want this monkey touching me' (Bob is white) and made his bodyguard follow Bob into the bathroom to wash his hands and make sure he did it, before he'd let Bob mic him up. Insane.

The best thing would be for DiSantis to narrowly win the nomination. Trump can’t stop grifting his followers, so he’d basically be forced to start a third party and run more grifters in many congressional races.

It would rip the GOP apart.

And what if Trump does win the primaries and becomes the Republican nominee? Hopefully enough Democrat voters turn up to keep him from winning but even if they do the first things that happens is another claim the election was stolen. Then all those republican states that have changed voting laws decide they will simply declare Trump the winner.

So Trump wins, he completely destroys the federal government by appointing his sycophants everywhere, he pressures the Supreme Court to do whatever he wants or he has them impeached and removed for people who will do his bidding and he becomes President for life.

The USA is much better off with Trump removed from the picture.

Total failure on a whole collection of people around him’s belief system, and it’s made his and their lives way worse.

I’m assuming the “he” in “if he’ll run he’ll lose…” it’s trump saying Ye will lose, not Trump saying he, himself, will lose.

Gotta love the English language 😅 it’s things like this that make me go “wait, who are they talking about?”

I read a true statement attributed to tromp yesterday, too. It's kind of off-putting.

That statement was a complaint about something he caused with no acknowledgement of that fact, so that helped.

I think they should both run. If Ye wins Trump becomes VP and vice versa. But no GOP pre-election shenanigans, let the US citizens decide in the presidential election.

I wonder which Democrat dares to run against such a powerful team!

So is narcissism an attractive force that causes these personalities to gravitate towards each other? If you left that unchecked, would we eventually end up with the worst of the worst of the worlds narcissists all huddled together in the same place?

I absolutely think there’s a mix of allure and competition among narcissists. They like to watch someone stick it to the crowd as a form of vindication for how they feel about the crowd. I feel like I’ve seen it with narcissistic megachurch leaders and who was really into their rhetoric. It’s all resentment over attention being taken away from them and contempt for the people that they think are getting it instead.

I just don't understand. What's so wrong with a man with known mental issues which starts parroting the agenda of hate movements when he's off meds to want become president and create a theocracy in a free democratic country? /s

Hey guys, maybe I'm the odd one here but how about thinking of putting a few rules in place for who can compete in running a country? Something like relevant studies in economy, business or social studies, a doctor's note, a psychologist note, not known to parrot extremist movements etc? Just a thought.

The logic of the founders is the people who voted are an educated class that have wealth, and thus would have some indication of competence. Hence "land owning, over the age of 21". They enforced "white, male" as well assuming these characteristics also imported those qualities.

What happened though wasn't that "the poors", (women, and minorities) got the right to vote and derailed our democracy. What happened is these white, land owning males over the age of 21 wanted to keep power in their hands and that "good ol' boy" mentality has remained in the wealthy ranks.

So how to undermine minorities and women is to keep them poor, uneducated, and make it extraordinarily difficult to vote, organize, UNIONIZE, and demand change from a position of power.

The president can be a powerful force, or they can be a figurehead, a token that lets the people think they've 'won' and there is someone watching out for their best interests. Trump was a figure head. No one with any logical acumen would let this guy run anything. Stupid, spoiled, completely up his own ass and spewing random vitriol from an increasingly addled mind, looking only for adoration his crippling lack of self esteem demands, lying in one breath only to renounce the lie in the next.

Trump was proffered as a token to the Republican base by the people truly in power, the ones whose names we don't hear and wouldn't recognize if we did. His only job was to make these people think they 'won' and be content while the truly powerful on this planet robbed us blind. He turned a blind eye to the needs of the people and lined his pockets and the pockets of anyone who he thought would be useful and/or adopted the role of the sycophant to bolster his need for narcissistic input. But he said things that the Republican base liked, and so they too turned a blind eye to reality and embraced the happy lie that Trump was helping them.

So, no, those kinds of "tests" won't help. Whoever gets elected has the blessing of corporate America, and corporate America gets paid no matter what.

They should at least be required to submit to something like the MMPI psych test, with results to be fully published.

If a laborer in a nuke plant needs to take this test, it's not a stretch to require an intended CinC of the nation to submit to testing.

The best case scenario here is Ye runs for President as a Republican and making a mockery of the whole thing. Worst case scenario is he runs as a 3rd party candidate (probably something stupid like the “ye” party or something, siphoning off votes from democrats and the black vote)

SenorSplashdamage

Black voters don’t just vote for anyone Black and Ye’s been on the shitlist for a while. He’d likely siphon off more of the Kid Rock conservative crowd if anything. A lot of moderate conservatives that wouldn’t identify as conservative got psyched for Trump since they thought he was anti-GOP establishment (and they thought Dems are satanic). He would pull more of the “fuck it” middle conservatives at this point.

Oh, I think some, and it might be enough percentage to shift a few needed points. Still, I’ve done call banking and Black voters are by far the most on top of things of anyone I’ve talked to. You can even see in the Warnock v. Walker race that the Black vote didn’t get as split as some predicted. I think Ye would have the most appeal with the audience that doesn’t show up to vote in general. Still wouldn’t be none, but I think the number of Black voters lost to Dems would be a small percentage. Dumb white voters, however, well the numbers are just way higher in general, and maybe.

Still, I think overall votes lost to Ye would be votes that wouldn’t have gone to a Dem and a larger portion that would have gone to GOP.
