Forget The Post Office. Trump Just Went To War With Veterans And The Military. (Video)

Sweet Jesus, just how fucking stupid can one human being be?!? We are less than a week into Trump’s autocratic attempt to stop mail in voting by gutting the post office, and already the Democrats in congress are the least of his worries. Not far. In the noon Pacific hour, 3 PM Eastern, Brian Williams of MSNBC […]

Devastating. Votevets.org ad labels Trump a “Traitor in a mask.” With video

I would say that I don’t know how it can possibly get any worse, but then I’ll just wake up tomorrow and find out. As I’ve written, Trump has steadfastly thrown away traditional GOP constituency after traditional GOP constituency since the day he took office, and it just keeps getting worse. For generations the military and veteran vote has been traditionally Republican and they’ve worked hard to keep it that way, casting Democrats as weak on defense. But the report that His Lowness was well aware of, and did nothing to stop Vladimir Putin from putting a bounty on the heads of American soldiers was a bridge too far. Votevets.org put out a scathing ad, coming right out and calling the sitting President a traitor. It just got worse. votevets.org has just come out with another ad that continues the “traitor” theme, but with even more devastating effect. Here’s the ad; I can’t tell you how potentially devastating this is. Trump isn’t the only one who has benefited from the support of active military members, their families, and veterans. GOP lawmakers, especially Senators have found that acreage fertile ground. There are massive US military bases up and down the east coast. Thom Tillis in North Carolina, Leningrad Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, two seats in Georgia, and even Doug Jones in Alabama all call major bases home in their states. Oh yeah, and John Cornyn’s seat in Texas.  And here’s how it gets to be a perfect storm. After starting out exclusively attacking Trump, The Lincoln Project has now branched out into attacking Trump’s Senate enablers as well. So, military members, their families, and vets are now all seeing ads portraying their Senators as filthy, disgusting turncoats. And now you ad in a spot from votevets.0rg, coming out and calling him a traitor in multiple ads. Put the two together, and you have a potentially devastating effect on Trump in the military and veterans community, but vulnerable Senators as well, tied to Trump by The Lincoln Project. The GOP Senate has spent the last 3 1/2 years tying itself to Donald Trump with barbed wire. And now it’s time to pay the piper. There is noway for them to provide anywhere near the distance they need from him to survive. Sink alone, or sink together. Either way it’s glub, glub, glub. To know the future, look to the past.before the insanity of the 2020 election, relive the insanity of the 2016 GOP primary campaign, and the general election, to see how we got to where we are. Copies of President Evil, and the sequel, President Evil II, A Clodwork Orange are available as e-books on Amazon, at the links above.
