Trump Can’t Stop Whining About The Election

From the New York Post:

The Commander-in-Tweet ripped Democrats again Sunday for still being unable to accept that he won the election, promising that his support will only grow.

The President-elect has firmly reiterated that companies who keep their factories in the U.S. will be rewarded under his administration while those who outsource to foreign countries like Mexico will face steep fines.

He has already taken credit for saving thousands of jobs after at least two companies that have announced they will keep their operations in America. Both denied that Trump played a role in the decision.

Carrier, a manufacturer of air conditioners and furnaces, announced it would keep 1,100 jobs in Indiana instead of Mexico after it was promised $7 million in incentives from the state.

And shortly after, Ford Motor Co. ditched its plan for a Mexican car factory, instead adding 700 jobs to its Michigan plant. Trumpā€™s battle with Democrats flared up Saturday when Georgia Rep.

            OMFG, David, thanks to you and your logic for this excellent video sleuthage! Some snowy evening in front of the fire, I’ll share some of my Lenny stories with you…

          • David Walker

            I can’t begin to tell you how up I am for that. I’m self-taught in whatever I do in music…arranging, writing, orchestrating…except for maybe two years of piano lessons (thank you, Mrs. Davis) and every Young People’s Concert he ever broadcast.
            As for “Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall,” it was a TV night that I’ve never forgotten. Columbia Masterworks put out an original cast recording, which was a combination of the live performance and necessary edits. I just now noticed that there’s been a re-issue on CD…and the Social Security Eagle shits on Wednesday. Amazon Used, here I come. If that kinescope recording didn’t make you blind, nearly the whole program is on YouTube. (I’m not a shill.) (Honest.) Search for Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall and you’ll see almost all of it, including a wonderful spoof of “The Sound of Music” (“The Swiss Family Pratt”) that famously offended Richard Rodgers, even though he wound up approving Julie for the movie. And a “Big D” with some of the least-butch cowboys ever seen on TV.
            But yes…lots of Lenny, please.

          I’m not sure exactly what you’re intending but I did try Chris’ advice and emailed it to myself. The whole comment thread arrived with Alan Lee’s op at the top, followed by the gif. I also just saved the gif to my computer and emailed it to myself. That arrived fine. Can you just save it – or is that not appropriate on your computer?
          I’ve only posted one gif here (DT being ejected from a high rise) which I saw on Twitter. Twitter is apparently weird (can’t save gif) so this link info is what I used. Probably works other than Twitter. Then I resized it 47% using the link ion that page..

        I concur. Cheetolini has made whining an art form worthy of the most obstinate toddler.

    • i don’t believe in “souls.” but i do think that there is a part of every human being that never goes away. call it a conscience, a sense of right and wrong, whatever.

      perpetual liars like drumpf may be able to stand in front of the camera and lie like a rug all day every day. but that part of him, maybe the part that loves his dog, or likes chocolate, whatever… that part does feel guilt for doing wrong. maybe only for a nanosecond. but he still feels it.

      he’s not a “winner” and he knows it. he knows it took the might of Russia, billionaires who control the american media, fucked up voting procedures which prevented citizens from being able to cast a vote for someone else… the list is pretty long, at this point. but he *knows* he is a loser. an evil loser who could only grasp power in ways akin to how the nazis took power. he knows. that’s what you’re observing. shame, and guilt.

      • David Walker

        Gullible Germans = Gullible Americans. Plus, both Hitler and the thing that would be president won power absolutely legally. Next up: thinning out the Reichstag/Congress of those who object to anything he said/says.

        Agreed. The irony is that what the narcissist fears most is being exposed as a fraud. So, Trump puts himself into a position where more and more people are aware that he’s a fraud. It’s an explosive situation, both psychologically and politically. Ugh.

    • Dawn

      The husband has been teaching middle school/high school for years and reports that the kids themselves are far more shocked and offended by Trump’s behavior than some of the other teachers. This gives me hope.

      As many challenges as teachers face, though, at least they have some tools to deal with it. Unless or until Trump does something so outrageous even Republicans will impeach him, we’re pretty much stuck.

    Have you noticed how “news” sources are legitimizing the use of Tweets as a form of political communication as though there was any substance to them?

      Fine. That’s what Trump wanted and that’s what will lead to his downfall.

      • BobSF_94117

        His downfall would come a lot faster if he had to explain anything.

        • David Walker

          A curious scenario would be that he is investigated and an impeachment hearings are called. Unlike Nixon, who sent his lawyers to explain his actions, drumpf would show up by himself and, absent his legal beagles, talk himself into so many corners the hearing room would look like a Moravian star.

      Actually, Rod Serling and all the writers associated with the original Twilight Zone TV series (1959-1964) were prescient in predicting the rise of an American fascist like Trump.

      Several episodes that come to mind (some or all of which may be available on YouTube or other sites that feature TV shows):

      “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” — 1960.
      “The Obsolete Man” — 1961
      “The Mirror” — 1961, starring Peter Falk.
      “He’s Alive” — 1963, featuring a young and very adorable Dennis Hopper.

      • cleos_mom

        And there were others you can interpret as metaphors if you watch them in that frame of mind. “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” featured an experience that everyone around the main character ‘knew’ was an illusion — with the last shot informing viewers it wasn’t.

        • another_steve

          Yes. The line between illusion and reality was a dominant theme in the classic series.

      • David Walker

        An odd choice, though, since many of his supporters have low reading skills. By the same token, he keeps reusing the same derogatory words, and ultimately that leads to recognition. Hair Twitler’s education policy has taken off.

        • John30013

          Trump uses language in a very particular way that is quite effective with disaffected people. He tends to use small words and short phrases, often with superlatives. He typically ends his pronouncements with short but emotional words, and he’s the king of the exclamation point. That kind of language engages the recipient’s emotional brain centers (the lower, “reptilian” brain), which can override the higher, rational brain.

So, by Dump’s own reasoning, we can say that its 44% is just a small amount of support. (It wouldn’t agree, I know — but who says we have to agree with it?)

            Anyway we can. I’ve already emailed everyone on my email list. I don’t do FB or Tweet or any social app. We’re on the “Letter Writing Squad” of the local dem club, writing letters to editors in red states and other publications. Spread the word however one can.

      • I still have my Hillary sign in my window, to be replaced by a new Impeach Trump sign on the 20th. But then, I live in a city where fewer than 10% of the voters voted for Trump.

            You know they’ll never admit that they were wrong. It will always be someone else’s fault.

        • RoFaWh

          I hope you replied “Trump is not savvy, his many bankruptcies were due to incompetence, not clever thinking, and he’s as dishonest as the day is long. He’s hardly what most people would call a business man.

          • Todd20036

            When someone told me to give Trump a “chance”, I just shook my head and walked away.

            Anyone so clueless as to think Trump can be anything but a disaster to this country is really not interested in facts.

          • grada3784

            As much of a chance as the GOP gave Obama.

          • Joe in Wyo

            Unfortunately to the right-wing whackos who supported and continue to support him the truth about his failings (many bankruptcies), inconsistencies, lies and general assholery don’t make one whit of difference. And they have bought in the fantasy of his apprentice reality show lock, stock and barrel. Facts don’t matter.

    • The Return of Traxley

      Yes. I do believe it’s happening to quite a lot of us.

    • Leo

      Thank you so much for saying this. I find myself resorting to stereotype and base impulse in the last couple of weeks to not come near or meet the eyes of those I assumed voted for him. I get nervous and my heart rate goes up. Hating myself for it.

      • fuzzybits

        It’s even worse when you know members of your family voted for him.

        • Smiley456

          I love my born-again sis in law. But, when it comes to Trump……

      • David Walker

        Please, Leo…don’t hate yourself for the way you’re feeling. I think we’ve all experienced a lot of things shattering our lives in the last two months, and we are not the reason. Please don’t hate yourself because of something someone else did to you. In a way, that’s almost like a victim of abuse blaming himself. You are doing what you feel you must do in an effort to avoid further abuse.

    • houstonray

      YES! I go through the day, avoiding news and life is pretty much normal, then I get home (and on the weekend of course) and see some crazy story and I have the sense of dread all over again.

      And if I do find myself disliking someone for something I start thinking “they probably voted for Trump”.

      I’m 51 years old, have voted in many elections and have never felt like this EVER.

      • David Walker

        I agree, houstonray. Closest to this for me was the twig’s second election. I just could not believe we had that many unaware, frankly stupid voters. And the world press rightly scolded us for letting it happen. But this shit has taken me to a much higher (lower) level.

        • houstonray

          Yep, same here. And thinking of it now, seeing where we may be headed, I’d GLADLY trade trump for dubya.

      • I feel the very same way. Never have had this level of dread and soul sucking worry after any election. While I wasn’t a supporter of Bush2, at least he had some solid people who knew the political ropes. If he hadn’t gone to war in the Middle East, his presidency wouldn’t have been that bad. But Cheetolini? Every single day is a day closer to losing President Obama at the helm and another nail biting day closer to The Big Stupid Fascist.ā„¢

    • fuzzybits

      I watch snip its of news and read some online. But he’s not even in the office yet and I think we’re all showing personal signs of damage. And it could be four years even though I’m hoping something massive happens soon. I don’t want to be completely uninformed but a news blackout sounds good sometimes.

    • GayOldLady

      I think it’s happening to all of us. At least in my little corner of the world I don’t have to “wonder” because I live in a bright red State and my county went overwhelming for the trump.

      But I’d suggest that what we can’t do or allow ourselves to do is to go on with life as if it’s somewhat normal, because it isn’t. We can’t allow ourselves to become apathetic. We have to stay vigilant and continue to fight back.

      • David Walker

        And we need someone to take charge. Resistance is useless if it is unfocused, and the least a leader can do is maintain the group’s focus.

    • houstonray

      Oh, and I’ve mentioned this before in another comment, but seems like a good reply here as well. My hubby and I own some land with a small house on it our in the country far outside the city and while I’ve always found “doomsday prepper” people odd, I now have the sense of dread and think perhaps we should be fixing up the place and making sure it has everything we need if things go to hell in the city. Sigh.

      • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

        The doomsday preppers always struck me as being super racist. They’re always terrified of “urban collapse” which is code for “the black people are rebelling”.

        • David Walker

          I don’t think that’s the case here. The goobs will try to take over, and they certainly do NOT include black people among their ranks (cf President Obama et. al.)

          • houstonray

            yes, more worried about his goons coming for all the non white/non straight people. Kinda the opposite of racist worries I suppose. Not to mention we’re in a red state. Seems like trump throwing caution to the wind with everything from the environment to equality to relations with foreign countries to National registries, etc, means now WE might all be the ones to worry about what the future holds and should perhaps make plans now.

      • David Walker

        OK, but be sure to line the perimeter with electric barbed wire razor blade fence. And I still think you need to stock up on Jim Bakker’s Buckets of Bilge…just in case the friendly grocer stops being friendly.

      ooohhh, you can’t depend on God
      You can only depend on one thing

    • Hue-Man

      Not me! I know that 100% of the people I see didn’t vote for Trump. Living outside the U.S. occasionally has its advantages.

    • Cerberus

      Yes. 100%.

      Especially after this election. Like, you want to know exactly who voted for you to die because they thought the idea of you peeing was more terrifying to them than a literal Hitler-loving bigot who thinks nukes are play-toys.

      I’m also struggling a lot with the fear and anger. The fear of how many of those around me are willing and gleeful nazis or those who will turn a blind-eye when they come for us. And the anger at everyone who voted for me and mine’s deaths and their gaslighting bullshit as they want everyone to smile and pretend that they aren’t the worst fucking human wreckage on the planet.

      I’ve also officially run out of patience for anyone who voted for anyone but Clinton. Like, fuck your sexist evil asses, you let this happen for dumb weak reasons and there is no possible way I can overlook how that might cost me and mine their lives. Like, I can’t even look at their shit anymore, it’s so infuriating and makes me just want to stab assholes in the crotches.

    • PickyPecker

      You’re not alone. Never in all my life have things just felt so completely wrong on so many fronts. I’ve limited my television intake to only entertainment and pick up most of my info on the internet.

      I’ve added a safety pin to all my jackets, and wear one every day at my business. Sometimes I get asked what it means, and I am very glad to explain. I believe there is much power in education.

      Sadly, I am in a rural ‘red’ county which includes people who just don’t get it and don’t understand why there is any concern.
      Of course, these are also the folks (for the most part) that tuned into the election in October, voted, and now pay no attention to what is going on.

    • TuuxKabin

      Yes. Even living in blue bubble Upper West Side, NYC. The rest of the country’s plight feels like it’s pounding on the door. Everyday since the election was stolen I wake up with a gut reaction and unbelievable sense of impending doom. I only felt like this once before in my life. As a child, in the SF Bay Area, when I’d go down for my afternoon nap, I was afraid I’d wake to the North Koreans pounding on our door. Childhood fears returning in my elder years is nothing I am prepared for. Plus I have a Russian side of my family. My father’s second wife. Great relations, corresponding, visits when vacationing. Lately. Crickets. That only adds to the sense something is and has been afoot. A feeling of something indescribably larger and menacing then anything imaginable. Someone placed this gif yesterday and it hits home. “Slouching towards the inauguration”.

      Whenever I hear of someone who voted for Trump, they are automatically on my shit list. I’ll deal with them cordially as necessary, but they are not someone I will be friendly with anymore.

      It’s not a “difference of opinion”

      Its not a “lets give him a chance” sort of thing.

      It’s not even a “well the majority of Americans voted for him”.

      It’s: Trump lied, cheated, had outside help, the media treated every Clinton non-scandal with more air time than Trump’s real scandals, Trump is unqualified, unstable, and uncaring. He’s a rapist, a fraud, and so fucking bigoted that the only qualification necessary to be on his cabinet is to be a Nazi who is loyal to Trump. He is not my president, he will never be my president, and anyone who voted for him voted to keep me as a second class citizen.

      Luckily for me, no one I genuinely like has revealed himself/herself to be a Trumpanzee.

    For eight fucking years I had to hear about Obama being illegitimate.

He starts out with very low poll numbers by chastising the majority. It will work for the dumb fucks who voted for him but no one is going to cut him any slack until he proves he’s worth it. I’m not going to hold my breath for that to happen.

            I blame the Russians for the selective leaks and promoting fake news via social media. When it comes to actually rigging election machines, I think it was mostly the Republicans. Just like the various voter suppression measures.

    TBIGTKUA – The Bastard is Going To Kill Us All

    I’m totally convinced he’s a maniac. For every job he takes credit for saving, there will be other jobs that leave. Everyone who pays attention knows that like all other countries this country is going the way of automation. The jobs that matter, that will help us to stabilize the work force are in clean energy and in clean energy infrastructure. Donald trump isn’t interested in either. Somehow those in the media and those in power have to find the evidence of collusion with russia and remove this crazy bastard from the presidency.

    • ChrisMorley

      I think the evidence is that Russia is manipulating (or attempting to) western democracies to destabilise us all / NATO / end the sanctions on Russia.

      Trump winning suits them, as would Marine Le Pen winning in France and AfD in Germany etc.

      • GayOldLady

        All of trump’s anti-NATO campaign rhetoric is evidence, to my mind, that he’s a surrogate for Putin. Nothing would further putin’s cause than the destruction of NATO. Yesterday trump spoke about lifting sanctions and working with Russia against ISIS. Never once did he mention the FACT that Russia just killed thousands of innocent civilians during their bombing of Aleppo, or the Russian genocide in Chechya. TBIGTKUA.

        • ChrisMorley

          I think we agree that Trump is not the grand strategist and initiator, but Putin’s poodle.

      trump isn’t interested in clean energy jobs because they don’t benefit existing hydrocarbon investments. But a compelling argument can be made that big investors will recognize where the future is before the approaching tipping point and not continue to invest in conventional energy, or abandon those investments, bursting a hydrocarbon value bubble. You don’t have to be at the point for financial confidence to wane (and the market is a confidence game which is what “con game” means). The US markets could crumble and trump’s administration isn’t going to be leading in the right direction.. These investors could divest and leave us all holding the empty bag just as we did in the banking bubble.

My aunt used to send me a homemade jar of her jelly every Christmas until she died. I never heard of the stuff again until I saw your article. I had come to believe they were native only to the beaches along the Delaware bay. Thanks for the memory!

    No one questioned the legitimacy of Obama louder or more cynically than Trump, but that doesn’t keep him from whining about questions concerning his legitimacy, ignoring the fact that he lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million, and the electoral college by less that 80,000 votes. Those claims he made about wanting the unite the country continue to ring hollow when he goes after any and everyone who criticizes Trump about anything. For the Thin Skinned One, there simply is no slight too small to ignore. In fact, he told us from the very beginning that when someone goes after him, he hits back 10 times harder, and at 70 years old, he’s certainly not going to change. And Christian evangelicals thought that was just fine.

      1. His love of fast food.

      2. His lack of aerobic exercise. Golf is not an aerobic sport.

      3. That if his doctor told him to change his ways, he’d simply refuse; and eat another Big Mac.

          Idiotic, and we went through this before.

We needed Hillary to play hardball and hold the line at *least* till the midterms and probably for four years. Sanders shaking his finger at a hostile Congress just wasn’t gonna do it, even if so much of his ‘support’ in the primaries and caucuses was people who said they’d vote Trump in the general election anyway.

          Outside the choir, he just wasn’t getting and didn’t get *the votes.* And I love the guy but the Republicans didn’t even *touch* the reams of opposition research from him actually being a Socialist.

      If, for some reason I can’t begin to imagine, I were to defend Trump, the very last thing I’d do would be to criticize others for being whiny or immature. Trump has had the corner on those attributes since he took that escalator ride to the presidency.

    Well, Trump didn’t actually win anything. He lied, cheated and stole this election with help from his good buddy Putin. He lost the popular vote Big League. And I really really can’t see where any Obama supporters voted for this orange turd.

    • Friday

      Some Trump voters have *claimed* to have voted for Obama, Likely not exactly dyed-in-the-wool Democrats, but sixteen years of Republican obstructionism of anything positive for the Rust Belt have increased the frustration level a lot, and a lot of people up there actually seem to be shifting the blame. Romney just wasn’t gonna do it for the blue collar folks, though, and *that* was damn well clear. Propaganda does seem to have hurt just enough there in some regions.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      Lots of Democrats voted for Jill Stein….which is the same as voting for Donald Trump.

      That’s a bummer. My favorite flower, only available when they bloom in my garden in late spring, are white peonies. They smell incredible and last as cut flowers for almost two weeks. Please, oh please don’t ruin the lovely pee on me.

      • fuzzybits

        We have some white peonies too. I wish they would last longer though.

      • PickyPecker

        We’ve got a lovely hedge of the double whites as well as the double pinks. It’s a sumptuous pleasure to cut an enormous bouqet for the dining room table every year. What a treat! (and yes, one of my favorite flowers as well).

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        There are a few peonies that “sometimes” rebloom in the fall.
        Still a much sought after item.
        http://www.bhg.com/blogs/everydaygardeners/2012/05/03/in-search-of-a-reblooming-peony/

        • Lars Littlefield

          Yes, fall flowering or everblooming peonies would be great. I have two very old tree peonies I rescued from a garden that were planted in the 1880s. Dark maroon/chocolate and yellow flowers on one and white/red petals on the other. It took almost ten years to get the damn things to settle in. They almost didn’t make it, but the other option was to let a development company bulldoze them under. Now that they are healthy and blooming again I sometimes get one or two small flowers in late August after the spring bloom. My biggest problem keeping the hedges of peonies thriving along my long driveway is deer. The cute little buggers just love the foliage. So, I encourage everyone who has the need to pee along those plants. It actually does help keep them away . . . for a while.

          • stuckinthewoods

            We also rescued some old peonies before development from a grower that used to supply local florists (before Colombian exports). Deer will eat them but deer seem to prefer the many daylilies. We started pee-ing on them (I feel au courant) and saving night waste to use as a repellent but couldn’t keep up. After all, how much can two men produce? (And I read it should be urine from males.) So I started using fish emulsion as a spray which worked as well as, or better than, home brewed Russian hooker extract. The only drawback is that tiny fish bone bits can clog sprayers. On the other hand, I feel less abashed offering vegetables with residual fish emulsion …than.

          • Lars Littlefield

            LOL!

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            Have you tried spraying them with spicy pepper water? I heard deer are not fans of the spicy.

          • Lars Littlefield

            It doesn’t seem to stop them from eating the jalapeƱos, serranos and hungarian wax peppers — plants and fruit — in July and August. Nope. They really do not like the odor of human urine. Plus, the peonies seem to enjoy it. Big blooms every spring. Big blooms. šŸ˜‰

    If Trump was inaugurated as the President in 2009 then there wouldn’t have been any massive federal bailout of the automotive industry, at least not in the same way as what Obama did. He would have announced ‘Trump Cars’ to much ceremony and awarded himself all the damned money.

  • juanjo54

    Just returned from spending 6 weeks in Mexico visiting friends and family. It is interesting how a slightly different perspective jolts you a bit. The past 8 years have not been bad years for Mexico, its economy took a hit in the recession but not as bad as us. The economy has grown and the middle class has grown. The result was that with the economy north of the border being lousy and the economy in their own country producing jobs, the number of people trying to cross the border dropped significantly.

    Since Trumple Thinskin has won the election his twits and comments have contained jobs against Mexico, NAFTA, companies who has business interests in Mexico etc. These comments have given the vultures in the banking houses the ammo they needed to make a run on the Mexican peso resulting is a roughly 25% drop in the value of the peso since the election. The dollar is now worth 21.5 pesos. This has been causing economic issues in Mexico.

    The government has been spending a large amount of its foreign currency reserves to bolster the peso and keep it from slipping any further. Businesses in Mexico are starting to worry about the future economic relationship with their largest trading partner. So their economy is beginning to slide. The price of gasoline rose 20% on January 1st and is now almost 4.00 a gallon [19 peso/liter]. This will increase the costs of transporting goods as well as the costs of public and private transportation. The working folks will see much more of their income going to basic economic needs and those who were marginal before will slide into poverty.

    So Trump’s good buddies at Goldman Sachs and the other banking houses are making a killing on currency speculation. I do not know if Trump has dipped his toe in that pool or not but he is a greedy bastard. But more importantly this is going to cause economic problems in Mexico, causing people to lose jobs.

    Some of you are probably shaking your head and saying “I don’t give a damn what happens there”. But those folks without work are going to do what poor Mexicans have done for as long as there has been a border, they will start crossing it and coming north looking for work. So a little greed and stupidity from Trump and his speculator cronies is going to cause more problems for the USA and Mexico.

      When people from other countries thought it didn’t make a difference who the US president was, I always reminded them of the deregulation policies of the GOP, which led to the world-wide financial meltdown in 2008. The same bastards that engineered that crisis are back in control, and will eventually cause it to happen again.

      Any number of Trump’s proposals will also greatly harm the US economy, including his anti-immigration proposals, trying to renegotiate NAFTA, or pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord (Europe is ready to put 35% tariffs on US goods if we do). Mexico, I’m afraid, will also be hurt economically, because Trump has had the country in his crosshairs from the beginning…from his racist rants, to US companies that have manufacturing plants there.

  • rednekokie

    The problem is, that he did NOT win the election. He LOST it by 2,800,000 votes. Only by a quirk in our antiquated presidential election law was he SELECTED by so-called Electors. The people did NOT vote him in.
    But, we all have to bear the brunt of this mistake for four years. Bummer.

    • Talisman

      4 years? More like decades….and if he gets a second SCOTUS appointee, possibly a century.

  • Trump’s approval rating is current 37%. That’s low for any point in a presidential term but unheard of for someone still in the “honeymoon” period. What a loser. What a joke.

    There is enough evidence out there to say the 2016 election process was largely sullied by the Russians. It is the conclusion of 17 US intelligence agencies, the British MI6, and Israeli intelligence. We also know there was high level contact between Trump’s and Russian officials throughout the campaign. There is also now 2 other intelligence sources verifying the claims in the British dossier. Penthouse magazine claims they have 3 different players that have come forward claiming to have a copy of a tape of Trump in a Moscow golden showers tryst with Russian prostitutes. and intelligence officials in other European nations say there is more coming. The republican party seems to be coopted in all of this too and when you factor in their voter suppression campaign, how can anyone claim our fall 2016 elections were fair or that Trump was legitimately elected ?
    Are we watching a historic bloodless coup d’Ć©tat in the making?
