Not sure whether to include this in the very long general Donald Trump pissed thread. However:
I have a bunch of important trips scheduled in the next few months. If he interferes with them with his cockamamie shutdown I’m going to be so angry. Not that I liked him before. But this is interfering with my life on a personal level.
To be a Trumpster, one either has to have no memory (the best approach, since the blowhard contradicts himself in the space of even a few minutes) or else a brain so feeble that its cognitive capabilities pale compared to those of a head of lettuce.
Another principle which I feel applies is crimestop, which he defines as “The faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are inimical to Ingsoc, and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction. In short … protective stupidity.”
Please, please, please, Tan the Conman, go play even one hole of golf before the shutdown is completed. Go now. Heck, take one day of vacation. I’d dearly love to see how your supporters parlay that into some semblance of decency and competency.
