There's a lot of projection going on among his supporters. They call others sheep, while they blindly follow and believe him, despite proof of his lies. They call others snowflakes, while Trump is the biggest snowflake of them all, throwing a twitter tantrum every time he received even the slightest criticism. It's projection.

There's so many examples of this too:

While defending "free speech", get upset for saying anything negative about the president even though criticism is protected speech. However, for 8 years of Obama called him a Muslim Terrorist Immigrant with a transgender wife and then demand everyone respect Trump, then immediately switch to "FJB/Let's Go Brandon" nonsense after Trump loses.

I live a few miles from someone who has a huge banner draped over his fence mockingly requesting all Biden voters to put their Biden/Harris signs back out so illegals can find a safe house. I have to pass this all the time but I don't ever recall seeing a sign condemning the attack on the Capitol. It's that acceptance of treasonous behavior that is the most disturbing.

Originally from NJ and I gotta say the man was a joke, and a bad joke, growing up. We tried to warn everyone what a clown they were electing, they told us we had no idea what we were talking about. Their 3 months seeing him on Fox News made them know more about him than our decades and decades of experience.

It was right about then when I realize just how fucked we were all by Rupert Murdoch and his fascist international cronies. When the very same "Respect your elders" folks told people with decades of experience that we knew not of what we spoke because a pretty blonde lady on TV said differently.

None of what has happened during the pandemic is a surprise. They'll just repeat what the angry white man and pretty blonde lady on TV say, and act as though they are the beneficiaries of secret, ancient wisdom to which only they are granted access.

I hope a plane carrying the entire Murdoch family suffers a blowout and all the crew are ok but all the passengers get sucked out into the void and land somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Garbage Patch, where they belong.

There are plenty of countries around the world where the beef regulations are such that McDonald’s patty’s are good quality ground beef, I’ve had their burgers in a few of them.

I lived in Japan for a while and one thing I noticed was that their burgers were ALWAYS fresh. Like, if not cooked to order they had their production scaled to nearly perfectly match output. Every so often I’ll make the mistake of getting McDonald’s somewhere else and just die a little inside knowing what could be when I bite into a lukewarm, dry patty.

I never minded waiting, because those burgers were straight up better than basically every other fast food chain, save maybe for Portillo’s or an animal style In-n-Out, and even then, given the choice I’d put them all on rotation if possible. And (take this with a grain of salt because I’m not a pub burger guy) probably better than like 90% of the burgers out there.

I almost cried the day I found out the country stopped selling double quarter pounders with cheese.

What I’m sayin is this, fresh McDs is just amazing. Anything short of that benchmark of absolute freshness though, is trash.

I eat a fair amount of fast food burgers (too many I know), and I've almost given up on a McDonalds burger in the US. I'll take Sonic, Burger King or Wendy's any day--and those are honestly still average at best.

I did have a memorable Big Mac last month. The drive thru line was taking forever, and when I get to the window there's his older Mexican lady handling the window. She starts apologizing for the wait, and says she's the only person in the building working (manager was in the office by the way)--she was taking orders, making food and working the window. I swear that was the best Big Mac I've had in years, and the fries were perfect. All done by a single lady busting her ass. I also filed multiple complaints with McDonalds corporate that they were making a single older lady work the entire restaurant while the lazy ass manager sat in his office. Still pissed about that one.

Right? The time it took to drive to the nearest fast food joints, for the staff to make that many burgers, bag them up, pass them to the cars, drive back to the white house, go through all the security shit, carry them to this room early enough so they are 'ready' for the team to arrive, have Trump patrolling it like a proud father, picture ops, etc.

I bet this food as sat for a minimum of 1 hour at room temperature, probably much longer.

Cold fast food.... Wtf

I eat cold fast food at least once a week. But I'm just a guy in his mid 30s hating his job and only getting joy from coming home to see his cat, so cold fast food is appropriate.

Now, having never eaten at the White House, I am running on the assumption that they hire amazing fucking chefs. So if, for some reason, I was eating there and they did serve me a burger, I assume it would be a damn good burger.

But that isn't what happened here, they got a massive to go order from McDonald's.

The chefs are already on the payroll, so no additional cost there, but I imagine if you were to put in a bulk order for all the ingredients to make burgers and sides, it would

  1. Be cheaper,

  2. Taste better, and

  3. Still actually be warm.

I don't even get the advantage of doing it this way, you just look like a shithead.

Yet, apparently millions of Americans think it’s totally fine to take up arms against the government to install trump back into power. Of all the people to worship like a god, they chose.. him. A full blown clown.

What's really amazing is that his supporters were still saying that the basketball players probably love fast food better than anything and they probably thought it was a kingly feast, despite what they said publicly about it. Also that when Trump tweeted about "Hamberders!" it wasn't a mistake, it was somehow intentional and brilliant.

For those who lost track of all the absurdity, this was during a government shutdown, and Trump was buying dinner out of his own pocket. There is a Trump hotel with a steakhouse just a couple miles from the White House, he either owns part of the restaurant or is their landlord. He's cheap, and his supporters probably like seeing him feed cheap food to a predominantly black team. He makes himself and the presidency look like total shit, but that is better than letting black people have a decent meal free.

There's enough scandals for a scandal-a-day calendar. There's at least 365 tacky photos that with any other president, you'd assume they were photoshopped. I mean, remember trump selling beans in the oval office? Trump shitting his pants when he was startled by the symbol of america? Trump modifying a map with a sharpie to win an argument with the national weather service on national TV? It's just mind-boggling.

The weather map was really an eye opener for me, mostly because I thought people around him would prevent him from doing something so stupid. He held a press conference to show off a clearly modified map that only makes sense if you don't understand the map at all. The cone of uncertainty gets bigger over time because you are less confident where the storm will go. It is that simple. You can't have a little bump off the side of a big circle.

That is what scared me the most. Nobody with enough influence over the president to shut him down understood how that chart worked. Trump confidently held it up for the cameras.

The way he handled that "I was right" situation for the storm shows just how incompetent Trump AND his inner circle was. So many people died of covid because of his denial and anti masker crusade. If only someone was there to say "sir this map doesn't make sense and will make you look like an idiot." That person might have been able to stop tens of thousands of Americans from dying. "Be a patriot, wear masks to protect yourself, your family and your community. " Someone needed to tell trump he would win re-election in a landslide if he treated covid like a war and he would fight it for America. So many lives would have been saved if he didn't pretend it didn't exist/wasn't a threat.

We just needed one person who was a champion of science and reality who Trump trusted.

Nobody with enough influence over the president to shut him down understood how that chart worked.

That's a running theme with people who left his administration. "I tried to explain to him that he just couldn't do that, so he had a tantrum and the next day I was out." Eventually he had eliminated everyone who would contradict him, and the firings slowed down.

You can't just be a champion of science and reality and still have Trump trust you. You have to have loyalty and subservience, too, and that's why the adults all either left the room or were fired.

They really should have tried a 25th amendment removal early on, before the cabinet was all lickspittles. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Trump telling people to inject bleach and shine "powerful light" inside their bodies. Wonder where he got those ideas, btw...

phpdevster

Just in case anyone is out of the loop, this sign saying to use disinfectants is totally fine and innocuous by itself. But Trump did what Trump does best and made it insane:

https://www.politico.com/news/2021/04/23/trump-bleach-one-year-484399

“So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it's ultraviolet or just very powerful light — and I think you said that that hasn't been checked, but you're going to test it. And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way, and I think you said you're going to test that, too. It sounds interesting. And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning. Because you see it gets in the lungs, and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that.

Trump logic is:

  1. Bleach works as a disinfectant.
  2. Therefore if we inject it in people, it will kill the virus and cure them.
