Love When People Call Trump Stupid Rant

Yet another pro-Trump rant is winding its way around my Newsfeed despite my attempts to unfollow the most rabid Trump supporters on my friends list. This particular one isn't attributed to anyone specific, which is probably a good thing since it's such an incoherent mess. It does, however, raise a few points that I thought I would debunk:

Love when people call Trump Stupid..
You mean the multi-billionaire who kicked every Democrats ass, buried 16 career Republican politicians, and continues to make fools out of once reputable news organizations ..
-You mean the guy who won the presidency?
-You mean the guy with the super model wife?
-You mean the guy whose words alone put a massive slow down on illegal border crossings?
-You mean the guy whose mere presence made the stock market smash its previous records?
-You mean the guy who created 1 million jobs in his first 7 months in office?
You sure you're not the stupid one?
You sure you even know what it is you're resisting?
You sure you back a party that enables the decimation of every core principal of Christianity?
You sure you back a party that voted 100% against the abolition of slavery?
You sure you really take a politician like Maxine Waters seriously?
You sure you don't see anything wrong with someone who has a 40 yr career as a public servant living in a $4.5 mansion representing a district she doesn't even live in?
You sure you see nothing wrong or peculiar about Hillary Clinton a woman being involved in politics for the last 30 yrs having a net worth of $240 million?
You sure you're not just basing your opinion on hatred spewed by a crooked paid for media platform?
Are you sure you don't fall into that "sheep" category?
Are you sure you even have a clue?
Could you even tell me 5 things the Democratic Party has done to improve you're day to day prosperity as a hard working American citizen?
Probably not..
Do you realize the debacle you are sending your children into once they become adults by continuing to support a political party that has done nothing for the poor except kept them poor, gave them free abortions, and a few hundred a month to keep food in their fridge?
The prosperity and safety of its citizens is job one of your government.
Get with the program.
Everyone else has horribly failed you!
Smarten up and take a position for the sake of your children.
I promise you a country full of illegal immigrants, Muslims who want us dead, abortions, $14 an hour jobs, and non-gender specific people aren't gonna make your country and life any more prosperous.
Rosie, Madonna, Katy Perry, and Robert Deniro are not just like you. They don't have to live through the real world day to day disparity of an average American.
Men don't hate women, white people don't hate black people, and Donald Trump is not a racist.
Stop allowing yourself to be brainwashed by a party that has continuously failed you.
Be about your prosperity, your safety, your children, and an America First mindset.
Dump these crooked politicians that have stunted your growth.
Dump these crooked politicians that have stunted your children's growth.
Toughen up, take a stand, and act like a proud American.
(If you need help watch some Houston rescue footage and see the love, compassion, and American spirit of the Texas citizens which was a Trump landslide state as they help EVERYONE)
See the spirit of Trump supporting and freedom loving Americans and just imagine where we could be as a country if everyone was on board."

You mean the multi-billionaire... - we actually don't know that Trump is a multi-billionaire because he won't release his tax returns. Also, Trump has declared bankruptcy six times.

...who kicked every Democrat's ass... - yet lost the House of Representatives in 2018 to them

...buried 16 career Republican politicians... - The author is likely talking about the 16 other contenders who went up against Trump in the last Republican Presidential primary contest. Yes, Trump won, but he hardly "buried" those politicians. The office of President of the United States is the "brass ring" in American politics and a primary defeat usually puts a contender in hibernation until the winner's turn is over. We'll see what happens once Trump is done.

...and continues to make fools out of once reputable news organizations - Matter of opinion.

You mean the guy who won the presidency? - No, I mean the guy who won the Presidency, but couldn't get over the fact that he lost the popular vote.

You mean the guy with the super model wife? - No, I mean the guy who has had multiple affairs while married to the super model wife and used campaign donations in order to pay to cover at least one them up. And how is being married to a super model a mark of intelligence?

You mean the guy whose words alone put a massive slow down on illegal border crossings? - This "massive" slow down that the author is talking about isn't cited, and flies in the face of claims that there's a National Emergency at the border. But, if we take the claim at face value, then Trump's words carry that kind of weight because he's the President, not because of his intelligence. If he had said it as a private citizen, it would have had no net effect.

You mean the guy whose mere presence made the stock market smash its previous records? - No, I mean the guy whose tweets have created a degree of extreme volatility in the stock market.

You mean the guy who created 1 million jobs in his first 7 months in office? - No, I mean the guy whose ill-advised trade war with China cost the US 300,000 jobs so far and will likely cost the US 900,000 jobs by the end of 2020 if things keep going on the current course.

You sure you're not the stupid one? - Rhetorical.

You sure you even know what it is you're resisting? - Yes. We're resisting a President who thinks he is above the law, who uses his position to funnel money into his business interests and who uses dog whistle racism to appeal to his base supporters

You sure you back a party that enables the decimation of every core principal of Christianity? - What are the core principals of Christianity and how have the Democrats "decimated" them?

You sure you back a party that voted 100% against the abolition of slavery? - Well, if we're going to hold each political party to the things they did 150 years ago, then surely you'll hold the Republicans accountable for the Southern Strategy 50 years ago and you'll certainly hold Southern Republicans accountable for voting 100% against the Civil Rights Act 50 years ago.

You sure you really take a politician like Maxine Waters seriously? - You sure you really take a politician like Roy Moore seriously?

You sure you don't see anything wrong with someone who has a 40 yr career as a public servant living in a $4.5 mansion representing a district she doesn't even live in? - Fair point on Hilary Clinton carpetbagging her New York senatorial seat. That being said, you sure you don't see anything wrong with a President who refuses to release his tax returns, who refuses to divest himself from his business interests and who encourages, politicians, diplomats and military brass to use taxpayer money to stay at his resort properties for official business?

You sure you see nothing wrong or peculiar about Hillary Clinton a woman being involved in politics for the last 30 yrs having a net worth of $240 million? - You see nothing wrong or peculiar with a Billionaire holding the office of the Presidency without divesting himself from his business interests?

You sure you're not just basing your opinion on hatred spewed by a crooked paid for media platform? - Rhetorical.

Are you sure you don't fall into that "sheep" category? - Rhetorical

Are you sure you even have a clue? - Rhetorical

Could you even tell me 5 things the Democratic Party has done to improve you're [sic] day to day prosperity as a hard working American citizen?
  • The Affordable Care Act
  • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
  • The Iran Nuclear Deal which lowered world oil prices by 2%.
  • The Obama Clean Power Plan which would have prevented 3,600 premature deaths a year, 1,700 heart attacks and 90,000 asthma attacks, according to analysis conducted by the EPA
  • Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards
The author then goes on a meandering rant which doesn't lend itself to a point-by-point rebuttal because it's just unfounded opinion.

So, the ultimate question here is, do I think Trump is stupid? Let's take a quick look at some choice Trump quotes:


  • "I think I am, actually humble. I think I'm much more humble than you would understand." —"60 Minutes" interview, July 17, 2016
  • "You know what I wanted to. I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard. I would have hit them. No, no. I was going to hit them, I was all set and then I got a call from a highly respected governor...I was gonna hit one guy in particular, a very little guy. I was gonna hit this guy so hard his head would spin and he wouldn’t know what the hell happened...I was going to hit a number of those speakers so hard their heads would spin, they’d never recover. And that’s what I did with a lot—that’s why I still don’t have certain people endorsing me: they still haven’t recovered." — reacting to the Democratic National Convention, July 29, 2016
  • "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters, okay? It's, like, incredible." — Sioux Center, Iowa, January 23, 2016
  • "[Vladimir Putin] is not going into Ukraine, OK, just so you understand. He’s not gonna go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down." — said after Russia had already annexed Crimea in a 2014 intrusion into Ukraine that left thousands dead, July 31, 2016
  • "I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things." —when asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” whom he talks with consistently about foreign policy, March 16, 2016
  • "I'll tell you, it's Big Business. If there is one word to describe Atlantic City, it's Big Business. Or two words—Big Business."
  • "Despite the negative press covfefe" - Tweeted on May 31, 2017
  • "Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!” - Tweeted on January 14, 2019
And has Mexico cut us a check to pay for his border wall yet?
