Out of Focus Groups
August 31, 2017
Oh great, as if covering the Donald’s zany antics weren’t enough, the media are back to running focus groups of Trump voters, asking weighty questions like, “Are you satisfied with the job Trump’s doing?” or “Are we great again?” Just great.
Of course, the garden variety Trump voter is not satisfied with the Trumpster’s performance, mostly because we’ve made no progress on the path to greatness (whatever the fuck that means). So, they’re complaining about the Donald’s tweeting, lack of professionalism, his confrontational behavior and his divisiveness. Who would have guessed?
But, they all continue to say they would not change their vote and hope the Donald experiences an epiphany and “turns the ship around”. “He just needs to stop tweeting,” they chant, like religious zealots. (Or, maybe, political robots.)
You know, way back when the Donald first took the election, back two-hundred-ninety-six days ago, our shocked media ran a similar bunch of Trump voter focus groups and asked, “Why did you vote for Trump?”. Back then, I was interested in the answer to that question. And while, the answers, ranging from “to make America great again” to “just to piss off the libtards” always sound vague and without substance, kind of like a Trump promise, I tried to understand their point of view. Needed to understand their point of view.
Now, frankly, I don’t give a shit. After seeing Trump demonstrate his lack of ability, lack of empathy and pro-Nazi temperament, people awaiting an epiphany are no better than the Donald and deserve him. The rest of the republic does not.
We need to stop asking Trump supporters how they feel (we know how, they feel like victims of their own choices – poor babies) and, instead, ask our damn congress why they’re not impeaching the tyrant.
Trump snowflakes are the flakiest,
Okay, I started out baffled, but now I’m more pissed.
