A FUnnie look at the loony residents of the Democratic Underground aka DUmmies in particular and the Leftwing Blogosphere in general.

DUmmies Hilariously React to Maddow Trump Tax 'Revelation'
Oh how jubilant the DUmmies were last night when Rachel Maddow tweeted that she had a copy of Donald Trump's income tax returns. Finally, FINALLY they had the documentation that would quickly lead to the impeachment of President Trump. Or so they thought. After a few minutes of being glued to her 9 PM EDT show on MSNBC, horrible reality suddenly set in. Not only would Trump NOT be impeached but Maddow revealed that Trump paid a respectable $38 million in federal taxes on an income of $150 million. Sudden but absolutely HILARIOUS deflation occurred starting just several minutes into the show. Blast! Foiled again! There were several such DUmmie threads so let us start with this prematurely jubilant thread, Official Rachel Maddow Show Watch Party thread! So let us now watch the DUmmies celebrate the Trump income tax revelation before it actually happens in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that their mood sharply changes to bitter gloom soon after 9 PM, is in the [brackets]:
Official Rachel Maddow Show Watch Party thread! [WOO! HOO! Let's all celebrate the imminent downfall of the TrumpenReich with Rachel Maddow and DUmmie bettyellen who posted this thread at 8:21 PM.] I just ordered a bottle of whiskey. [Freudenschade, baby! And now let us prematurely celebrate with the rest of her DUmmies...] Please let there be something there. I really hate even getting my hopes up at this point, but.....
[Posted DUmmie JTFrog at 8:22 PM. Hey, don't worry. It's in the bag! Hee! Hee!] I really hate even getting my hopes up at this point, but..... [But...don't worry DUmmie LenaBaby61. It is now 8:27 PM and your Trump nightmare will soon be over. Hee! Hee!] I may get some popcorn [Could we have a victory drink to go with that?] I'm making a whiskey on the rocks. [Thank you DUmmie bettyellen. It is now 8:54 PM. Just minutes to go until the earth shaking revelation.] I'm so excited. We've been waiting for this - ANY tax news really. [Posted DUmmie theglammistress at 8:55 PM.] Hope this is not a trap, these could be released by Benedict Donald himself !! [Posted DUmmie uponit7771 at 9:03 PM as Maddow was still doing the big buildup before entering Al Capone's vault.] Rachel seems nervous Or she is trying to hold back her emotions? [It couldn't be that she knows she is about to present a scam. Naw! It just couldn't be that.] She said her and the guy who passed them to her will be going into detail... [Posted expectant DUmmie betsyellen at 9:06 PM while sipping her victory whiskey on the rocks.] she's setting it up nicely (I hope) [9:14 PM and do I detect a slight note of skepticism from DUmmie itsrobert] Long overture. Nothing new yet, nine minutes in. She is teasing, I think, showing how the tax records could enlighten us regarding many of the sweet deals that we already know about. [Have patience DUmmie Baitball Blogger. You are about to be verrrry surprised. She's explaining the probable Russian money laundering .... [Keep stretching it out, Rachel before the BIG surprise!] She is brilliant at setting the stage for maximum impact. [Posted DUmmie Amaryllis at 9:12 PM.] Right now she's summarizing Benedict Donald's nasty news... SMART, she's got an audience tonight ... and might as well go through some of the hard evidence [Posted DUmmie uponit7771 at 9:14 PM, shortly before the evidence becomes very hard for him to accept.] She doesn't sound like she's winging it. But, she does seem like she's building up to something. She keeps asking questions and concluding that the tax returns might be able to provide information. [Panted the anxious DUmmie Baitball Blogger at 9:15 PM who can already taste Trump blood.] This is a YUGE NOTHINGBURGER! [Posted DUmmie Kaotic at 9:26 PM as the horrible truth is finally revealed] I think the White Houses indignation on this return is fake. I think Donald released them. After all, it showed he did pay millions of taxes. IMHO. No evidence, just a hunch. [Blubbered DUmmie riversedge at 9:36 PM in reaction to the painful truth.] Big zero. No useful information. [DUmmie oberliner received that revelation at 9:27 PM.] this return makes Trump look good actually. Why only 2 pages? If you have the return to leak you would leak the WHOLE return. Nothing in this return makes him look bad...it quiets the angry mob plus he get's to bash the dishonest media for leaking it. [Sudden insight from DUmmie Kaotic again at 9:45 PM.] Merry Fitzmas [Freudenschade, baby! ...Following this Freudenschade moment, the recriminations against Maddow began in DUmmieland such as this thread, donnie is the clear and overwhelming winner in this latest tax release.] the tax returns reveal virtually nothing we didn't already know.
ok, he's a beneficiary of amt. not sure that's news or not, there are certainly plenty of loopholes he takes advantage of.
but he wins. [WINNING!!! Winning and winning and winning so much that we beg President Trump to stop winning...but he won't.] nothing illegal, nothing incriminating [Drat! Foiled again! ...Finally Maddow is accused of the worst thought crime ever in
Could Rachel actually be a republican?] BREAKING NEWS!! BREAKING NEWS!!!!! BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! WE HAVE TRUMP TAXES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And we all get excited, wow, they must have evidence that he paid nothing, they must
have something that shows he avoid paying his fare share. There must be something juicy here. So we wait wait and wait. And the breaking news was that he actually paid $38 MILLION in tax. My first reaction was, "Wow that is Huge" The repugs reaction, would probably be the same. I guarantee you the reaction of the independents, would've been.... "WOW THATS PRETTY STEEP" Even Democrats are thinking "Wow he paid $38 Million in taxes????"
So why did Rachel make such a huge huge deal of it, before hand and is she in
someway related to Tom Arnold? [Thank you, DUmmie brettdale, for hilariously summing up extreme DUmmie gullibility. ...And now on to the other angry DUmmies upset at being so easily conned by Maddow.] Her mistake was in hyping it 90 minutes beforehand on twitter....when in fact, she had nothing of real value. [Which again prematurely caused the DUmmies to break out the victory champagne.] This was a huge miss. [This was a huge understatement.] Rachel is just a slave to ratings like everyone else on TV news [Which is why she promoted her version of opening Al Capone's vault.] Basically, Cheeto set Rachel up and she fell for it hook, line and sinker. Cheeto is stupid but he has more than displayed when it comes to playing the media for a fool, he's well tasked at how to do so. Maybe next time, Rachel will ask more questions before running straight to the camera, reading a script. She got played on this one and was the only news program in the 9 pm ET hour to lead with this "leaked" story like it was for real, for real #BreakingNews. [Cheeto 1, Rachel 0.]
Trump Speech Sends DUmmies Into Deep Angry Depression
It is the worst of times. It is the worst of times. Early last November the DUmmies were absolutely SURE that Donald Trump would lose the election. In fact they even LOOKING FORWARD TO RUBBING IT IN. That's how sure they were. And then the election came and...utter shock. However, it wasn't until Trump's speech last night to a joint session of Congress when it really sunk in that Trump is HERE TO STAY and they have to endure him until January 20, 2025. In fact February 28, 2017 is already being called "The Night the Democrat Party Died." That prospect has sent them into a deep angry depression reflected in the very title of this thread, I f***ing hate him. Their helpless rage is also fueled by the knowledge they won't admit aloud...yet: the Democrat party is THROUGH. They are in the process of self-marginalization that by the end of the Trump Era they will go the way of the Whigs. I look for the Democrats to go full Trotsky after suffering yuuuuge losses in the 2018 midterms and after the 2020 election...hello Whigs! So let us now watch the DUmmies rage helplessly in a deep, deep funk in Bolshevik Red while the the commentary of your humble correspondent, enjoying the self-destruction of what will soon become the FORMER Democrat party, is in the [brackets]: I f***ing hate him. [Of course. Donald Trump has completely DESTROYED your world. You thought that Hillary's "certain" victory would mean the ultimate victory for leftwing lunacy in America and now the left is shattered. The Democrats soon to become the new Whigs.] I hate him with the white hot passion of a thousand suns. I'm sorry DU. I try not to hate but my fury and anger are fierce and undeniable. I found myself wishing his head would explode on camera. [May I relay your thoughts to the Secret Service, DUmmie bunnies? I repeat DUmmie bunnies. Oh, you're just one letter away from the FUnniest blog on the web.] I f***ing hate hate him. [Hate week in DUmmieland...to be extended for almost 8 years.] Edit: now that it's the next day and I've had some time to think... yep. Still hate him. Glad I'm not alone. I'd lose my shit if not for this place. [Are you sure? Have you checked your diaper? Now on to the other utterly depressed and incurably bitter DUmmies...] You're in good company. [Correct. All the rest of the DUmmies are now in a state of helpless rage.] I was screaming at my puter. Mr. Bunnies was not impressed. I just couldn't f***ing take it. Lies lies lies. Omg. [It's going to last until 1/20/2025 so enjoy, DUmmie BUnnies.] My grand-dog luna was worried about me as I yelled at the TV! [As with his tic, your grand-dog is also a luna-tic.] I watched re runs of old sitcoms. I loathe this ugly, ignorant, repulsive slimebag. My doctor has upped my blood pressure medications, since my bp spiked over this fiasco. I disliked W, but tRump is a total bottom of the barrel scumbag. The man is seriously mentally challenged. [If you don't get a heart attack first, the bile in your stomach will disolve you at the waist.] I can feel it eating at me. The anger is just so goddamn strong. I didn't want to watch it but I'm a politics junkie so I feel like I didn't have a choice. As it went on, the hate justice compounded. I'm not optimistic about the near future. [Psst! DUmmie BUnnies. You also shouldn't be optimistic about the distant future since 1/20/2025 will mark the inauguration of President Pence.] A friend in the clergy joked about "taking one for the team" she despises him so much. [Is she in the First Church of Goddess Gaia?] I can't stand the sight of him or the sound of his voice. He enrages me! I can literally feel my blood pressure rise whenever I see him. I become physically sick to my stomach. [Highly acidic bile does that to you.] It's only been a month. Worst case is 4 more years of this shit. What the f**k are the sane of us supposed to do? [Wrong. Worst case for you is the most LIKELY case: 8 more years.] Hate+Anger equals motivation. Not entirely a bad thing. [Hate+Anger equals comedy. An entirely hilarious thing.] I feel like a hostage. I swear, every day I wake up in the morning with the vague feeling that "surely this ISN'T happening." "This is gotta be a bad dream." "This CAN'T actually be happening." Sadly, it IS. [Think of yourself as living inside a computer simulation entirely designed for the amusement of DUmmie FUnnies readers.] Never have I so violently disliked a human being as I do this one (I guess he's human). I refuse to hear his voice. I refuse to watch his speeches. I just read a mystery novel tonight and then checked in here to find out what lies and atrocities he's telling the world now. I don't even like seeing his picture, but that's unavoidable. My best friend and I refuse to even use his name. And here I am a Buddhist. He's forcing me to go back to square one in my spiritual practice. I guess that's the best I can say for him, and I don't even feel like saying that.
[It's going to be a fun EIGHT years for you.] The night of the election night was perhaps the worst night of my life. Now Trump is president, I fear for the future of every life on this planet. I don't think I could survive four years.
[The Heaven's Gate mothership will be waiting for you on Election Night 2020.] Yes, he brings a hate from my inner being I didn't even realize could happen. At 72 years old, I've witnessed a lot of people and events that have brought forth a feeling of 'hate', but nothing compares to this. If life and the very planet itself lives through his tyranny, we'll never be the same again. I have never really feared turning on the so-called 'news', but I haven't watched any t.v. since Nov. 8, except the Animal Planet and my calming Music Choice channel. My heart just aches for those that will be harmed far more than me and am thankful that I'm almost out of here. [Another DUmmie with a reservation for the Heaven's Gate mothership.] I thought my anger would abate, but it hasn't. Not even a little bit. It is getting stronger. [Every day. In every little way. My derangement grows stronger and stronger.]
Have you ever been in downtown Los Angeles? I have been there MANY times, especially in the wholesale district. One thing about downtown L.A. is that you have to have situational awareness and be on alert at all times. Why? Because that area is chock full of people who are drunks, drug addicts, or flat out insane. In many cases they are all three. In fact it was rare to visit that area without seeing at least one case of outright lunacy. So the fact that another one of those downtown lunatics was in the news is no surprise. What makes this different is that the DUmmies, so desperate to prove that Trump supporters are perpetrating hate crimes especially since all the real hate comes come from the left such as at Berkeley, that they have now glommed onto a downtown lunatic story and converted it into a "Hate Crime" by a Trump supporter. To see how ridiculous this is, check out the story about this at KTLA 5:
Video shows the victim walking down a sidewalk as another woman runs up from behind and then shoves her to the ground. The attacker continues to run away from the scene as bystanders rush to assist the injured woman. The victim suffered a one-inch gash on her left cheek and had pain in her knee after the fall, police told the Los Angeles Times. A Good Samaritan ran after the suspected attacker, who initially told police her name was Patty Garcia, but fingerprints later identified her as Alexis Duvall, the Times reported. According to investigators, the suspect was yelling obscenities and appeared to be under the influence or mentally ill at the time of her arrest, the Times reported. She was being held on $50,000 bail. A social media post shared by Facebook user Linda Lee following the attack suggested the attacker yelled “white power” before fleeing, however police have said that no one at the scene reported hearing that.
So the whole "hate crime" routine started with a posting on Facebook...NOT with anything that actually happened. In addition, you can see the KTLA video which shows the woman running like a loon and shoving the elderly Korean just because she was there. And from this, the DUmmies are turning this nothingburger into a "Hate Crime" crusade as you can see in their THREAD, "Korean grandmother, 83, is 'punched in the head by woman, 27, screaming white power' in downtown LA." So let us now watch the DUmmies match the downtown lunatic's lunacy with their own lunacy in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, having flashbacks of downtown L.A. lunatics, is in the [brackets]: Korean grandmother, 83, is 'punched in the head by woman, 27, screaming white power' in downtown LA [Much more likely she was screaming "More Meth!!!"] Of course this is a hate crime. One of the enabled Trump supporters...who now feel free to exercise their hate...put her in jail .
[If I know my downtown L.A. loons, the perp probably didn't even know there was an election.] Of course this is a hate crime. One of the enabled Trump supporters...who now feel free to exercise their hate...put her in jail .
[How about if we start by rounding up the Berkeley terrorists? The big difference between them and the downtown loon you've latched onto is that the former are REAL.] NO IT IS NOT A MENTAL ILLNESS. It is "just" racism.
[I've been to downtown L.A.. Trust me. It IS mental illness. As deep as the DUmmie mental illness.] Very dangerous times for all--especially for people of color. [The DUmmies have found their loon and they are not letting go. They are desperate to make her the Poster Girl of Hate Crime. Yeah, she Hates being low on Meth and will commit a Crime to get more of it.] Open your eyes police.. this is a bona fide Hate Crime. What would you call it? [They are calling it exactly what it is. Yet another in the many daily acts of lunacy by the many drug addicts/loons in downtown L.A.. However, a bigger lunacy is you DUmmies somehow desperately turning this into a "Hate Crime" of national importance.] I think corporate media is shuttering most news of racist hate crimes [I think the DUmmies are shuttering their minds from the reality of the drunk, drug addicted, mental health cases in downtown L.A.. Been there. Seen that.] That poor lady. This makes me very sad about the state of this country. It's fine to have opposing views, but we're supposed to be a civilized society.
[LOL! You actually think that lady has significant political views? Most likely the only thing she had on her mind was scoring more meth. If George Soros agreed to pay her in meth instead of money, she would be at LAX protesting against Trump even though she would have almost no awareness of what the hell is going on.] So did not the police interview the people who did hear the racist words? [Perhaps the police should interview the Facebook poster who made that claim from perhaps thousands of miles away.]
"Anyone else having a mental health crisis over this administration?"
The DUmmies are going out of their minds (actually they have already achieved that state) and they are blaming Donald Trump for their mental imbalance. This is actually one of the FUnniest threads ever as you can tell just by its title: Anyone else having a mental health crisis over this administration? In fact it is so funny that rather than my usual pontifications, let's go right to it. As usual the crazed rants of the mentally disabled DUmmies are in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, guiding your way through DUmmieland with a butterfly net, is in the [brackets]:
Anyone else having a mental health crisis over this administration?
[Would you like a coupon for Happy Times FUnny Farm?]
I've gotta admit, a big part of why I so desperately wanted Hillary to win was because I knew I wasn't mentally healthy enough for the level of persistent resistance that is required of us now. I was barely holding it together with anxiety and depression under Obama's presidency when life was "easy," and now every day is a constant battle just to keep the country's collective head above water. Not that I thought Hillary's presidency would be perfect, and I could just lay back knowing everything was puppies and rainbows in my government, but I could trust her to use good judgment and protect my and my fellow citizens' freedoms to her fullest potential.
[Please keep your head out of plastic laundry bags on Election Night 2018.]
I don't know what to do. I'm not just upset and angry; that would be normal. I feel like my entire body is shutting down. I can hardly think straight. I'm having nonstop migraines. I sleep through my alarm because I don't have the strength to force myself to get out of bed when I need to anymore. I tried going to a therapist last year post-election, and she dismissed my concerns as pretty trivial (I can't try finding another one now before anyone suggests it b/c mental health costs are higher under my new insurance plan that went into effect the beginning of this year). No one understands how much this election meant to me. It seems like it was "just an election" to everyone, including that therapist I went to, so there's no point trying even to talk to people about how it's affecting me. If anything, the second the election comes up, family and friends jump on an opportunity to tell me how terrible of a candidate Hillary was and how naive I was for supporting her, and I'm just thinking, "You have no idea how much her campaign meant to me, and you're shitting on one of the few things that gave me hope the past year to my face. Thanks."
[So you can't afford mental health costs because of Obamacare and you're all depressed about President Trump?]
I feel guilty every time I don't participate in a protest or don't read up on some new disastrous news story. Yet I feel like I can't participate in everything or even a lot of resistance efforts without literally dying. I felt like I was dying in the parking lot before I marched the day after the inauguration. I dunno, I just really feel like I won't survive fighting this shit for four years. I want to do my part in resisting normalizing, but my body and mind won't stop fighting against me. I knew this would happen if he won.
[If you somehow survive the next four years, you can look forward to doing it all over again for President Trump's SECOND term. And now to your fellow depressed DUmmies...]
Nah, i was already there.
[DUmmie CentralMass is certifiably insane and he's got the papers to prove it.]
I truly believe that we are all in mortal danger, but I am not going to let Trump take over my life.
[That's going to be tough since he has already taken over what's left of your mind.]
I wake up each morning and the first thing is a jolt and anxious thought of what he might have done during my sleep. Can't sleep at night now.
[Would you like melatonin pills? I got like a 10 year supply FREE via coupons and I rarely use them. Less so now that we have President Trump.]
I'm back in therapy myself and it is a lifeline during these dark days. Sounds like the therapist you saw is a tool. I'm sorry! This was more than election and anybody who doesn't see that is not entitled to your trust, money or time. Please dont give up. There are some good mental health providers out there. Our lives have been turned upside down. This is awful. That fact bears respect.
[Did your therapist give you a leather strap to bite down on during your Rubber Room visits?]
I am seeing a psychiatrist myself and he told me his other patients were also all talking about the negative health effects they have from the outcome of the election...and are still having problems after the inaugural and the disastrous first week of Trump's regime.
[Lemmings Cliff for you before the year is through.]
A lot of people were grieving right after the election and a lot of them are doing much better now. But grieving is a very personal experience and we all move through it at our own speed.
[Skinner was grieving over the loss of all that Clinton Cash.]
I'm looking for a local support group and if I can't find one, I may start one.
[DUmmies Unhinged by Trump.]
Hillary worked her ass off while that arrogant, lazy fuck got to waltz in to the White House with zero effort.
[And spending HALF the money!]
My boyfriend suggested I see a psychiatrist..... I've apparently crossed the line from depression to full on psychosis..... and that's a lot to take from a man who is diagnosed with schizophrenia, though my red eyes, swollen throat, and bruised knuckles tell me he may be right. I haven't been ME since November, and it seems to be getting worse. I could just not watch the news, or listen to NPR, and delete all my apps, but what would life be? Blissful ignorance? I just can't. So instead I'm addicted to a masochistic lifestyle
[You're a masochist so if your boyfriend is a sadist it should be a dream relationship.]
I am wrecked and ruined. I have moments or maybe a few hours when I'm not, but overall, I can't imagine that my psyche or inner self or whatever will ever be able to breathe again until this unending serious of smacks upside my head STOP. Just STOP.
...I am angry one moment, cross-eyed exhausted the next, then I'm on fire, then I'm homicidal, then I can't believe what just happened, then I am so deeply moved by the beauty and splendor that The People manifest, both here and across the planet...rinse, repeat, ad infinitum.
[Or ad lithium. Repeat over and over and over again until you see the rabid foam start to dry up.]
So much is wrong. I'm going to find a doctor who prescribes ketamine. I've tried just about everything else. It is worth trying something new at this point. So depressed. Damn. I hope you feel better soon. I hope we all feel better. Damn.
[I looked up ketamine on Wikipedia and found this: " It induces a trance-like state while providing pain relief, sedation, and memory loss."]
I do have to suppress my urge to kill on an hourly basis... Because the voices in my head tell me that everyone is guilty, so everyone should pay the penalty
[DUmmie Blue Tires is definitely a candidate for the No Fly list.]
I am already experiencing burnout. Moreover, I suffer from anxiety and trauma and Trump's deliberate encouragement of the far right has me feeling anxious a lot. What's more, it's really an assault on anyone who has been the victim of far right crimes or hate or discrimination. Trump is flipping the bird at a lot of hurt people. Surely he knows how many hateful people support him.
[Perhaps you should put an ad seeking a Safe Space rental on CraigsList.]
A hand full of Xanax washed down with a little whiskey and it all seems okay again.............thud!!!
Also I have to spend 8 hours everyday with coworkers who voted for Trump, and they aren't regretting their votes yet. I hate that I have to be anywhere near them.
[Xanax and whiskey at your next office party?]
I have anxiety and depression - have since I was a teenager. I have been toying with the idea of going back to my psychiatrist and therapist, because it's bad since this horror story started to unfold in November, but I'm worried that I'll get the same reaction that you're relating. I don't care for being dismissed - especially by professionals who should be able to understand that this is affecting people like us badly.
DUmmies NEVER learn. That's why they are DUmmies. In 2004, the DUmmies got thoroughly scammed by BBV Bev Harris who happily pocketed lots of DUmmie bucks in exchange for the promise to overturn the election. Of course, BBV Bev never came close to fulfilling her laughable promise. When it was too late, the DUmmie scamees loudly complained about being so easily fleeced. Well, fast forward 12 years to 2016 and Jill Stein performed the almost same type of scam by going through the bare motions of challenging the election results in 3 states with the promise to overturn the election results. You would have thought the DUmmies had learned from their bitter BBV Bev experience but NOOOOO... They fell for the scam AGAIN as you can see in this DUFU EDITION of last November where they eagerly handed over their bucks to Jill Stein with the spooky smile (see pic above). Now it finally seems as if the DUmmies suddenly realized they were completely scammed yet again as you can see in this DUmmie thread, Jill Stein got to keep over $4 million from the funds she scammed for her recounts. Gee! And I wonder how Jill so easily scammed the DUmmies...NOT! Truth is the DUmmies have been scammed over and over again since the beginning of their existence and will continue to be scammed as long as they exist. So let us now read of DUmmies griping about being scammed by Jill in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that PT Barnum said "There's a DUmmie born every minute," is in the [brackets]:
Jill Stein got to keep over $4 million from the funds she scammed for her recounts.
[Full title should be: "Jill Stein got to keep over $4 million from the funds she scammed FROM DUMMIES for her recounts."]
How many people gave money they couldn't really afford in the hope that they'd get fair recounts of all three states -- and possibly overturn 7the election?
[Do a census count on the total number of DUmmies and then multiply by 90 percent to get the answer.]
She knew from the beginning that she'd already missed the deadline for an automatic Pennsylvania recount, so that recount court petition was a Hail Mary pass.
[And yet you DUmmies fell over each other to send Jill money.]
So, between the money she never had to spend in Pennsylvania, and the $2 million in funds returned to her from WI and MI, she had quite a sum left over at the end of it all. She went from about $58K cash on hand at the end of the campaign, to more than $4 million cash on hand after the partial recounts of two of the states.
[A nice scam whose success was assure because she was dealing with DUmmies.]
But she kept pleading for more donations till the bitter end.
[And the DUmmies kept on giving and giving and giving until well after the bitter end when they finally realized they were easily scammed yet again.]
And now Jill Stein, the only candidate who had dinner with Putin in Russia last winter, has a big pile of cash to use to disrupt the next Presidential election. And desperate Democrats helped her get it.
[Desperate Democrats and desperate DUmmies. And now on to the other DUmmies angry that they were so easily scammed by Jill...]
No Surprise here
[Nope no surprise at all. Predicting the scamming of DUmmies is as easy as predicting that a rock thrown up into the air will eventually fall to the ground.]
I warned you here on DU...It didn't feel right..
[To quote from the incredibly gullible November DUmmie thread..."There's no downside as far as I can tell. Good on Jill."]
Screwed and used HRC, then made her getaway with the loot. Stein is a fraud.
["If she gets enough money for one state, she will do that, if two states, she will do that, and if three states, she will do that. Her goal is election integrity, exposing the problems."]
Yep. Stein is a tool of the right wing.
[Please don't expect a $4 million refund.]
she is dumb. She is so clueless
[And yet she very easily SCAMMED you DUmmies.]
I'd say it's pretty clever to go, in one month, from $58K cash-in-hand to $4 million. More clever than many of the people who donated to her cause.
[Come on, say it! "DUMMIES!!!" Say it! SAAAAY ITTTT!!!]
Nope. She's dumb like a fox, and she is playing American voters hoping for better. She should be ashamed -- but I doubt that is in her nature.
[So how much did Jill scam you for, Sucker?]
Is there any possibility that Jill Stein can be forced to return this money?
[No and don't expect a cent of your money back, SUCKER!!!]
When she was collecting her millions, she always said that if she had some left over it would go toward her party, i.e., her "voter integrity" work.
[I think BBV Bev used the same pitch.]
Jill Stein is a hero.
[Is that you, Jill?]
I wonder how she'd have paid all her bills if she hadn't thought up the audit money-maker?
[A regular Ponzi scheme? But that's not a sure thing like scamming DUmmies is. Works every time.]
Jill Stein did great in gathering cash by getting upset people to donate for recounts so they could all feel better about the results...how did that work out?
[It worked out as well as all the other easily detectable scams perpetrated upon DUmmies.]
She had enough for her recounts with the first $2.5 million she raised, with a half million to spare. Interestingly, that was the original amount she asked for, that was supposed to pay for the three recounts. However, when she raised that much very quickly, she immediately saw the chance to raise a lot more money -- for her party. So then she asked for another couple million. And another.
[Which the DUmmies unquestioningly handed over to her each and every time.]
Plenty of us were calling this a shameless cash grab while it was taking place. She gets to keep the money? Of course she does! To be fair, she never had any intention of giving any of it back and made this perfectly clear while she was asking for donations. People need to read the fine print.
[Sorry but there is no Kewpie Doll award for retroactively having a very convenient moment of mental clarity.]
We tried to tell people here what was going on, but they still gave her money.
[What's this "We" bit, Kemosabe?]
Desperate Dems just helped to bankroll her 2020 campaign.
[Stein 2020! Drain those liberal votes away and assure the re-election of President Trump!]
Her recount was a scam from the begining. The manner in which she went about it has cemented in the minds of Americans that it was a fair election. What she did was horrid in every way.
[So how much did YOU fork over to Jill like a complete SUCKER?]
I understand why people wanted to believe. I hope this will be remembered next election though.
[Nope. Another scam artist can challenge the 2020 election results and DUmmies will AGAIN fork over their money like complete SUCKERS.]
She flat out scammed people.
[Let's be more specific and replace "people" with "DUmmies."]
And donators can almost certainly get their donation back.
[Still holding out hope for your refund?]
The caliber of Jill Stein's character will be sealed as we watch how the money is spent. Follow the money. It's always about the money.
[Follow the money. It will probably end up paying for 5 star hotel suites as the money to turned over to BBV Bev did.]
If you donated to Stein for the recount, call your credit card company for a charge back refund.
My daughter did just that when she realized she had been scammed out of her money by Stein. Tell your credit card company that the charge was a donation solicited under false pretenses.
[Call your credit card company and just tell them you are an easily scammed DUmmie. Then cross your fingers hoping for a refund when the person on the other end of the line stops laughing.]
I did donate to the recount because I didn't want to look back and wish that we did do something as I don't think the vote was fair. I did go in with open eyes and had my doubts.
[And, of course, you were SCAMMED yet again!!!]
Stein helped get trump elected and then scammed donors with recounts
[I call that WIN/WIN.] She's a great con artist. Not only did she net millions of dollars, many of them continue up to defend her, despite being bilked out if money they doubtless need that money more more than she. She's not the first and won't be the last.
[It is inevitable that there will be a BBV Bev III.]
"Donald Trump Can be Deposed, Even Without Impeachment"
The total stupidity and gullibility of the DUmmies is absolutely astounding. Their latest fantasy is they can remove President Trump from office via the 25th Amendment. Yeah, that would take the agreement of Vice-President Pence along with a majority of Trump's cabinet or Congressional Republicans that Trump is unable to continue being President. Short of a health crises, what is the possibility of that happening? How about somewhere between NIL and NONE? And yet this is the latest laughable DUmmie fantasy that they have latched onto as you can see in their dopey thread, Don't look now: It's President Pence! Donald Trump can be deposed, even without impeachment. So let us now watch the DUmmies indulge in their latest wild fantasy in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that the more desperate the DUmmies are the FUnnier they are, is in the [brackets]: Don't look now: It's President Pence! Donald Trump can be deposed, even without impeachment
[Dont look now: DUmmies can be institutionalized even without court order.]
Given Trump's erratic behavior in his first few days, Washington is starting to murmur about the 25th Amendment
[That pink hat you were wearing Saturday cut off the blood supply to your head.]
Donald Trump is in over his head. This comes as no surprise to the millions of people who could see that he was unprepared and unfit for the job of president of he United States and voted against him. He’s basically a celebrity heir to a fortune who was so entitled that he believed his privileged existence proved he was competent to run the most powerful nation on earth. That’s the attitude of an aristocrat who ascended to the throne without having any idea what it actually takes to rule. History’s full of such men. It doesn’t often work out well.
[What really make this Salon writer mad is that President Trump is KEEPING his promises.]
Trump managed to convince enough voters in just the right places that his “business success,” born mostly of hype and relentless public relations over many years, qualified him for the Oval Office. Since the Protestant work ethic and the philosophy of virtuous capitalism still permeate American culture, it’s not uncommon for people to equate financial success with superior intelligence and character. Many among the public undoubtedly assumed that Trump’s persona at the rallies was something of a salesman’s act, that he was playing the role of demagogue to rile up the crowd. They assumed that behind closed doors he was a smart and able businessman, making tough decisions on the fly, handling many issues at once.
[Just admit that you don't like capitalism. Period.]
Those voters didn’t see what millions of others felt instinctively, and which explains the shocked reaction and immediate resistance to his election: Trump’s incessant bragging, his lack of empathy or remorse, his pathological lying and even his bizarre appearance were signs of an unstable personality. It was obvious to many of us that something was not right.
[Something was not right with the anarchists rioting and breaking windows. Oh, and the pink hat march the next day displayed some really bizarre appearances such as Ashley Judd's "nasty" rant.]
The presidential transition was a dumpster fire with endless resignations, rumors and public humiliations. Trump’s refusal to deal responsibly with the intelligence community’s investigations into Russian interference in the campaign was worrying. Picking a fight with them over it was downright alarming. Still, one couldn’t help but think that the weight of the job might inspire the staff and the people close to him to instill some discipline into the system and keep the new president focused once he took the wheel. That hasn’t happened. The first days of the new administration have been a disaster.
[Actually it is moving along quite smoothly and all cabinet appointees will be confirmed. THANK YOU, HARRY REID! Now on to the DUmmie comments about this idiotic Salon article...]
this is what i really want. not impeachment. i want it clear in the history books that those of us who saw how unfit he was were EXACTLY.FUCKING.RIGHT.
[Impeachment by a GOP congress is impossible and removal via 25th Amendment is even less likely.]
I want him humiliated and destroyed walk him out of the white house in straight jacket.
[The way Karl Rove was frogwalked out of the White House on May 12, 2006?]
i have said that a few dozen times at this point. i want them to take him down w a tranquilizer dart. on live teevee.
[Before that happens, the Secret Service will take you down for that threat DUmmie mopinko. I repeat, DUmmie
Somebody will have to throw a net over him at some point. You just know it's coming...
[Before that happens, the Secret Service will have to throw a butterfly net over you, DUmmie Ligyron. I repeat, DUmmie Ligyron who may soon be wearing Ligyrons.]
Humiliated destroyed and JAILED, Him and Pence. Both of them.
[Wait! I thought you were hoping for Pence to declare Trump unfit for office. DUmmie STUPIDITY at work once again.]
he's gonna pitch the most epic tantrum in american history.
[We already saw the epic tantrum the DUmmies pitched on November 9. It took a couple of weeks for them to come online again.]
This is quite possible but begs one question. Are we being had?
[Are incredibly gullible DUmmies being had? Let me ask BBV Bev Harris.]
We have already been HAD
[Right. By Bev Harris and many others.]
More wishful thinking. Its not going to happen. It may make people feel better to imagine that Trump is going to be removed pursuant to the 25th Amendment but the chances of that happening are essentially zero.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!! Logical thinking was the giveaway.]
It ain't gonna happen.I've come to the realization that any act or edict about Trump not being president anymore will be ignored... Impeachment or 25th Amendment.
[Kewpie doll for you.]
Trump is being EXACTLY as I thought he would...as a distraction from the hideous things the GOP is going to pass with his rubber stamp signature. It is depressing in a way that has destroyed my optimism for the future and put me into a deep depression that shows no signs of letting up at all.
[Try drowning your sorrow in rubbing alcohol.]
But, it looks to me as though the opening is there in the language of the 25th Amendment.
[The only opening is in your microskull.]
There's no evidence that Trump is imbalanced or perturbed at all. None. He's happily holding meetings with businessmen and labor union leaders and so forth. And claiming that daring to run for president without being qualified proves that he is nuts is rather crazy itself, given that he did win the damned election. We don't have to be happy about it. We do have to deal with it in a way that is not insane.
[STOP WITH THE BRUTAL TRUTH!!!]
Can we do a recall election? Can that be done?
[Sure. It's right there in Article 66 of the Constitution.]
Oh, boy, the frog march crap again. The only way he leaves is if he resigns. He only resigns if they force him to divest himself of his Trump related businesses. He only gets forced if congress or the courts choose to do so. Congress ain't, and I'm dubious after he appoints the next SC judge that they will either.
[Goodbye Cruel World!!!]
Can both the 25th Amendment and Impeachment happen? As well as criminal and civil charges against him? Just wondering and hoping that the gates of hell can be unleashed on him.
[The gates of Happy Land Funny Farm can be opened for you.]
DUmmies Deeply Depressed Over Trump's Inauguration
The DUmmies are now in a state of complete grief over the impending inauguration of Donald Trump on Friday. Of course, their gloomy extreme depression is going to make watching his inauguration even MORE enjoyable than it normally would be. As you can see in the picture above of the OUTGOING gloomy White House staff, DUmmies and their leftwing cohorts cannot hide their extreme sorrow. You can see just how depressed the DUmmies are just by the very title of their thread, "Is everybody here in as shitty a mood this week as I am?" Yeah, everybody in DUmmieland is despondent but for us normal folks on the outside it is HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!!! WOO-HOO!!!! So let us now read the hilarious DUmmie depression in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, breaking out the beer at high noon on Friday for the first time since I caught a bad cold last month, is in the [brackets].
Is everybody here in as shitty a mood this week as I am?
[I'm sure they are which makes it that much more enjoyable to watch.]
I'm pissed and I'm in mourning.
[I'm happy and laughing at you DUmmies. Speaking of which, let us now take a hilarious look at your fellow depressed DUmmies...]
I am grieving. I feel very bereft.
[Only 2922 more days of the Trumpocalypse.]
Going to the DC March ... Will get some good energy there
[Not if you hang out with violent protesters. All you would get then is a broken skull while splayed out on the jail cell floor.]
I can't come out of my bad funk.
[You will snap out of it after the 2922 days of the Trump era. Then immediately return to your bad funk when you realize there will be 2920 days more of the President Pence terms.]
I'm gonna have this funk for a loooooooong time. Pretty much always.
Last night I watched a documentary about Election Night and I just got really angry. For some reason yesterday I was the most angry I have been since this happened.
[That's strange. The same Election Night documentaries put me in an extreme upbeat mood from laughing at all the snowflake meltdowns. They are HILARIOUS!!!]
I've been in a shitty mood for the last 10 weeks. I don't expect it to get better in the near future.
[At least 2922 more days.]
Yes. Same with me and Mr. Gaia. I don't see any light at the end of this tunnel, nor any silver linings anywhere, either. It's dismal.
[But will you be ready for another four Trump years after that? 2922 more days, baby!]
I'm sorry, but donald trump does not have the power to make my life shitty any more than Hillary would have had the power to make my life wonderful. Our day to day happiness is in our own hands and we alone have the power to make it shitty or happy. I do NOT give the trumpster the power to make my life shitty. I can do that all on my own if I so choose. I intend to go on being the happy successful person I've always strived to be. I am a little depressed this week, but not because of trump. ...AS far as trump goes, I hate him as much as anyone could, but I refuse to let him make my life shitty.
[Translation: Donald Trump has ruined your life and there is NOTHING you can do about it.]
This week, as I say, has been terrifically sad and depressing anticipating the hurt that is going to be brought down on people and the planet by trump ascending to the position of leader of the free world.
[Have you considered brick wall head bashing therapy?]
The first place to resist trump is by not allowing him the power to ruin your sanity.
[That ship sailed long ago.]
I am unable to function.
I plan to avoid all news sources this week, as I have been doing since 11/9, but even more stringently so.
[Better go into hibernation until Jan. 20, 2025.]
Not much is cheering me up - not interested in watching late night comedy - because it's just not funny what happened and what is about to happen. The news is a no no - no effing way will I torment myself like during the Bush years.
[You need to cocoon yourself until Jan. 20, 2025.]
I will never watch any news network ever again. I just can't bear the thought of that guy being called "president".
[Another DUmmie for extreme cocooning.]
I can barely work, I'm depressed and angry, sarcastic and deeply dark. I tend to take a global view of all things, but no matter what part or how much of the world I pay attention to, I see nothing but Trump-shit all over it for at least four years.
[At least but in reality eight years.]
Depressed, stunned, still not quite believing it's going to happen yet I know it will. This is a disaster of world shaking proportions. None of us is safe.
[I really would love to see a video of your Election Night meltdown.]
What do I do with this rage for the people I know who voted for him? Especially the ones who are supposed to be intelligent? I understand how he conned the deplorables with his lies, but these people I know who have done quite well under Obama-- I want to spit on them.
[Have you tried sticking your head in a bucket and screaming?]
I'm drained.. I wake up angry and go to bed angry. I have been trying to pace myself but there is something every minute and he hasn't been sworn in yet.
[Donald Trump has complete control over your tiny mind.]
I am . . . permanently pissed off with no intention to get over it.
[You will NEVER get over it for all eternity unto the end of time.]
a number of my friends report suffering from Trumpsomnia Last night fell asleep at 3.
[Their Trumpsomnia will last all the way thru the Trumpocalypse.]
I am a 30,000 year old reincarnated being who materializes once every 5000 years in a Las Vegas hotel suite. My greatest goal in my eternal life is to spend 6 months on a small tropical island with Mary Matalin doing nothing but pitching a DUmmie FUnnies book (with CD-ROM insert) deal with her. If you happen to be Mary Matalin, please contact me at:
