I suppose denial is much easier than actually trying to come up with a reason for still supporting him.
Okay. After reading it three times, I can insert single quotes in the right spots to make sense of this. But if he’s not swallowing that #45 said that, then he’s among a very small minority of critters in the nation who don’t believe it. And the more Il Douche denies it, the more it seems to be really true.
Yet another in the long, long list of thing Lester and all Trump Disciples are required to believe:
A partial list:
Trump never referred to soldiers as suckers and dead soldiers as losers who got what they deserved.
Trump is 6’ 3" and definitely not obese.
Trump is not racist. And neither are His Disciples.
Trump never gave top secret information to the KGB in the oval office — yeah, I know when he did it, it was automatically declassified, even if it put lives at risk.
Trump’s tax returns are still being audited.
Trump hardly knows Flynn/Gates/Papadopoulos/Manafort/Stone/Epstein/Cohen/Lev&Igor/Bannon/any of the women he raped or assaulted.
Trump never had a stroke and Mike Pence cannot recall being put on standby.
The bone spurs were real.
Trump was never briefed about COVID-19 in February/he didn’t lie about it/He knew it was going to be a pandemic before anyone — because Stable Genius.
Trump is not racist and it is not documented.
He never ran a fake charity and it was never disbanded.
He has NO blood on his hands because of his failure to respond to the virus and his sabotage of those who tried to — and neither do His Disciples.
Trump is not a Traitor, not cruel, and not massively corrupt.
I have trouble staying positive about waking people (such as Lester) to the fact that we are having a 9/11 every other day, that never should have been. And they have “normalized” it all. The Lies. The corruption. The death. All are undeniable. And yet they still deflect and deny.
Still. We have these kinds of ’toons, from unbelievers, and we must call them out for what they are.
They are letting an invading army into our camp, and tell us there is nothing to see, because their deadly work is not yet complete.
I will not stop my efforts to raise the alarm and do something about it.
Y’know. On 9/11, I was at the office (San Diego), and listened and watched. I wept for those people I didn’t know, called my GF to wake her up, start coffee, and watch. The HR director took me into her office (she didn’t want the staff to see a senior systems analyst so distraught), and remarked, “So many businesses destroyed, all at once.”
Really? That’s what hurts the most? I had no words for her.
I learned later, that there were organizations, with people who thought ahead, who checked to see if the victims had pets in their apartments, waiting for owners… who never came home.
Those are the people who have humanity and empathy for those who were lost, and those who are left behind. Human and animal.
It’s an empathy that Trump doesn’t have. And we have a slow 9/11 every other day, and people like Mr. Lester want us to think it’s “normal”?
Given what trump openly displays of his true nature and personality, and what language and venom he typically spouts, I not only have no doubt that he referred to those who answered the call to battle as “Losers and Suckers” but I imagine the word “Pathetic” was in the mix. One can only wonder what he privately thinks of those poor gullible souls that he has conned into supporting and defending him.
He doth protests too much! He lies through his teeth then in the next breath he denies eVer having said it….4 years of this is hard to swallow Don’t ya think? Woof!
No need in eating the evidence, it doesn’t work. Too many witnesses.
Actually, the losers and suckers are his base….and HE KNOWS IT but THEY DON’T!!
I think I might have, but don’t recall
Believe it because of the way he talked about McCain and treated gold star families. He told a woman whose husband was killed in Afghanistan “He knew what he signed up for.” The sad thing is that that is the way he views all those people who worship him. According to Howard Stern, who has known him for years, he only likes celebrities. It’s really sad that the people who follow him are the suckers that are born every minute, according to P. T. Barnum.
The dog is swallowing tRump lies he’s been fed for almost four years now. I’m surprised he’s still alive.
he dog would learn after having his nose pushed into the mess and scolded. The MAGAts, though, don’t seem to be getting the lesson.
The Atlantic was tired of the NYT being the favored bird cage liner.
Whoever is editing Lester’s “work” needs to be fired. This makes even less sense than usual.
Ok, I can buy that the dog reads The Atlantic, and clearly has opinions on it. I can buy that the woman and the dog have conversations.
What I can’t buy is how this is supposed to, I’m assuming, support Trump.
I guess I see where Lester is going with this, but I shouldn’t have to guess. The editor is supposed to make Lester’s point clear, not some vague, the dog ate the paper because it was upset that the president called Soldiers losers and suckers and the owner disagrees.
Mr Lester is confused.
@ Librarylady — Lester is NOT confused! Lester is deliberately lying to support #45, our Grifter-in-Chief!
There are many documented quotes from the Dotard-in-Chief which support the idea that he has contempt for people in the armed forces, but thinks that if his administration throws money at the Pentagon, all will be overlooked. Some people are fine to overlook it.
But think of this: the article states that, as they were visiting the grave of the son of then-Chief of Staff Gen. Kelly, who was killed in Afghanistan, Trump said, “I don’t get it. What’s in it for them?”
The fact that Gen. Kelly did not quickly and emphatically deny that account speaks volumes to those willing to hear.
It seems clear that Mr. Lester has no problem in giving his support to a flaming psychopath. Trump is what he is and will not change. He may well have been born that way; just as some are born blind or deaf, perhaps he was born without the neural elements that enable empathy.
Donald Trump mocked for “absolute irony” of playing ‘Fortunate Son’ at rally -
Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
Ooh that red, white and blue
And when the band plays hail to the chief
Ooh I’ll be fake limping with my bone spurs, y’all.
It ain’t me, it ain’t me
I ain’t no sucker or loser.
Hope you’re not swallowing the “I didn’t want to create a panic” line.
What comes out of TheRump’s mouth is the same as thing that will come out of the dog’s ass.
FYI: A question not about who’s shouting, but who’s silent …
Amid the clamor, it’s easy to overlook those who are not yelling, those who are keeping silent. Where are the senior officers of the United States armed forces, serving and retired—the men and women who worked most closely on military affairs with President Trump? Has any one of them stepped forward to say, “That’s not the man I know”?
How many wounded warriors have stepped forward to attest to Trump’s care and concern for them? How many Gold Star families have stepped forward on Trump’s behalf? How many service families?
The silence is resounding. And when such voices do speak, they typically describe a president utterly lacking in empathy to grieving families, wholly uncomprehending of sacrifice and suffering.
In September 2017, four U.S. soldiers fell in action in the African country of Niger. One of them was Sergeant La David Johnson. Trump placed a call to his widow, Myeshia Johnson. A family friend, Frederica Wilson, the representative for Florida’s Twenty-Fourth Congressional District, reported Trump’s attempt at consolation: “He knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt.” Trump responded by launching Twitter and TV denials. Myeshia Johnson spoke about that call on ABC’s Good Morning America, confirming Wilson’s account, and adding more: “I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband’s name. And that what’s hurting me the most. Because if my husband was out here fighting for our country, and he risked his life for our country, why can’t you remember his name?” Talking to Trump about her fallen husband, Myeshia Johnson said, “made me upset and cry even more.”
We already knew he did that previously to John McCain.
Even though it shouldn’t surprise me, I still can’t believe Trump actually said that! I guess maybe he knows that it’s a high probability that he’s not getting reelected so he doesn’t care.
Ah-ha-ha-ha Lester. That story was confirmed by several news outlets, even FOX News Entertainment.
You’re the one that is sick by sticking by POTUS. LOLOL
As a Vietnam veteran, it’s been hard to swallow fat boy’s attitudes about veterans all along.
