What Is The One Question Guaranteed To Piss Off Every Trump Supporter?
When a Trump supporter makes a statement, ask:
“On what do you base your opinion.”
The more intelligent Trump supporters will spend, at most, a couple of minutes telling you the foundation on which their opinion is built. Then they run out of smart things to say, start sputtering and spitting as they call you names and end with a “fuck you.”
Trump supporters with less intelligence run out of intelligent things to say in under 60-seconds. They go straight to name calling.
Trump supporters are a peculiar group. Funny in a strange, pathetic sort of way. They can tell you they love and worship the Mango Mussolini. They may even tell you they would sacrifice their first born male child for the sake of the Fairy Fascist in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
But there’s one thing they can’t do.
They can’t tell you why they love him so much.
Oh sure. They can give their opinion. But they can’t show their opinion as being based on anything remotely resembling a fact.
Every opinion — worth anything — is based on something. A source, a URL, or even just experience. When a person excuses their ignorance by saying, “It’s just my opinion,” they are saying “I pulled it out of my ass.”
The opinion from the ass might be better than the irrational memes they pass around in a drunken orgy of stupidity. Memes like this:
“Trump Supporters Spread the Majority of Phony News on Social Media,” pointed out the group’s findings are based on study of more than 13,000 Twitter accounts representing politically diverse viewpoints, including just under 2,000 pro-Trump accounts — which were identified by terms like #MAGA included on their Twitter profiles and explicitly pro-Trump content they have shared.
It doesn’t take much research to separate real news from fake news, just a willingness to open Google and be intellectually honest.
Not unexpectedly, Trump supporters don’t have either. Again, no surprise, Trump himself said, “I love the uneducated.” It’s apparent they love him too. Just don’t ask them why.
Trumpista’s have their own twisted and perverted logic which many acts as though it was on a third tablet brought down from the mountain by Moses.
Or Charlton Heston. Around the time he blew the dog whistle, “From my cold dead hands.”
Unicorns Fly And Fart Rainbows
Trump supporters don’t have a logical base for their opinion. Their belief, which stating their view makes it a fact is, wide-spread and ingrained and contagious for Trumpistas.
Following their logic, a person could say:
“Unicorns fly and fart rainbows,” and it would have to be accepted as fact on the mere fact that the speaker said it. Gives a new meaning to the word ‘convoluted.’
Maybe Trump supporters are to be forgiven. Their fearful leader often spouts opinions for which he has no reason. Need proof? Trump will say one thing today and change his mind within 24-hours, leaving White House aides scrambling as they try to figure out how the wheels came off — again.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan
The now-deceased Senator once said, “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. No one is entitled to their own facts.” Trump supporters believe their opinion to be fact based on nothing other than their opinion.
On Name Calling
When it comes to name calling, Trump supporters have it down to an art. The name calling starts with something basic, such as ‘asshat’ or ‘libtard.’ From there it can branch out like streams feeding the Mississippi.
But, call them a ‘Trumpista,’ and standby. They tend to get offended and point out that ‘you libtards can’t do anything except call names.’
“Libtards.” That’s funny. I haven’t heard that since the third-grade.
