    'We're Tightening Our Belt': Trump's Midwest Support Tested As Farmers Struggle

    So we know Trump lied about helping the farmers. He’s telling them he’s going to give them free money just before the election, and you do know that once the election is over, fuck ‘em. He ain’t helping them anymore.

    And remember he said he was going to give Republicans even better healthcare than Obama care and then spent his entire term trying to take away Obamacare and replace it with nothing.

    Remember when he said he would release his tax returns? Another lie.

    And Mexico would pay for the wall?

    Remember when he said he was going to put out new treaties and trade agreements even better than the old ones? More lies.

    If he wants to lie about little things, like the size of his tiny hand or lights make his skin look orange that’s OK. But once you start lying about the big things, then that just hurts the country.

    Will it work again? Republicans were pretty damn dumb to be taken in by a ConMan the first time, but can they do it a second time?

    And if they do it a second time, imagine how dumb they’re going to look? Can you imagine being taken by the same ConMan twice? Only in trumps case, it’s again and again?

    Deanny is very good at outlining Donnie’s lies but somehow inexplicably, knows nothing of Obama’s lies. If you believe one lies a lot but not the other, you clearly aren’t very smart.

    It’s doesn't take much to gull the average voter. The more specious the rhetoric, the better it sells...

    This is what will work for Trump in 2020...

    A Democrat opponent whose platform is so far Hard Left that even many Hillary supporters will be hard pressed to support it.

    2-3 Republican (short term) primary opponents whose Moderate/Establishment policies will remind Republicans and Right-wingers why we voted for Trump in 2016.

    Trump has delivered on what is important to conservatives: pursuing a hatful, bigoted agenda hostile to immigrants, an agenda hostile to the environment and the health and safety of workers and consumers, and an agenda hostile to the rights and protected liberties of minority Americans.

    Conservatives will gleefully vote for Trump again, with whom they share their fear, ignorance, bigotry, and hate, just as they did in 2016.

    Healthcare for all Americans is considered radically far left for Democrats. But Republicans healthcare plan of die quickly because it’s cheaper is considered middle of the road.

    It is Moderate. The Right wing viewpoint is to actively seek out and execute those who can’t support themselves.

    I believe you made one glaring error. It’s not that Republicans are against immigrants. They like immigrants. They just want the immigrants to be white. White like the Republican Party.
