Trump: The World’s Record as the Butt of Jokes

Did you hear the one about President Trump? Or, more precisely, did you hear all 3,128 jokes?

A think tank that has studied the content of late-night comedy for the past 26 years said Donald Trump was the butt of more jokes in 2017 than any other public figure has for a single year. By a lot.

He beat the previous record of 1,816, set by Trump as a presidential candidate in 2016, said the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University in a study released Friday. Prior to that, the record was 1,717 by former President Bill Clinton in 1998, the year of Monica Lewinsky.

Matthew Whitaker: A Scam Artist Promoted to Acting Attorney General by the Moron

Trump really knows how to pick ’em, doesn’t he?

The guy was part of a scam to separate chumps from their money.

…the FTC filed a complaint against Miami-based World Patent Marketing, accusing it of misleading investors and falsely promising that it would help them patent and profit from their inventions, according to court filings.

In May of this year, a federal court in Florida ordered the company to pay a settlement of more than $25 million and close up shop, records show. The company did not admit or deny wrongdoing.

34 of the Moron’s Candidates Lost

Scorecard: Trump Declares ‘Great Victory,’ But 34 Of His Candidates Lost

In 2018, he held 44 “Make America Great Again” rallies and tweeted endorsements of 83 candidates. In all, 91 Republican candidates got some kind of nod from Trump.

But Trump’s actual success record fell well short of a “complete victory.” Overall, approximately 55 percent of the candidates he endorsed won so far in Tuesday’s voting.

Checking the Moron’s Bragging Rights

The moron is praising himself about being responsible for Republican wins (in the Senate).  Here’s a more realistic view (click the date to see the screenshots):

Republicans Attacking Voters

Republicans have long tried to deprive voters of their voting rights–focusing on people they think are likely to vote for Democrats (blacks, Hispanics, low-income).

Perhaps one of the worst attackers of voting is Chris Koback of Kansas. Kobach has been spreading lies about “voter fraud” for years.

Second place surely goes to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

In a particularly disturbing case, Olivia Pearson, a grandmother and lifelong resident of Coffee County, Ga., found herself on trial this year on charges of felony voter fraud. It began six years ago, on the first day of early voting in Georgia, when a black woman named Diewanna Robinson went to cast her ballot. Ms. Robinson, then 21, had never voted before and didn’t know how to operate the electronic voting machine, reported Buzzfeed. She asked Ms. Pearson, more than 30 years her senior, for help. Ms. Robinson would later testify that Ms. Pearson informed her where the card went in the machine and told her to “just go through and make my own selections on who I wanted to vote for.” Ms. Pearson walked away before Ms. Robinson started voting.

Almost four years later, Ms. Pearson received a letter from District Attorney George Barnhill’s office, informing her that she was facing felony charges for improperly assisting Ms. Robinson. The city councilwoman and community leader was arrested and booked. She had never been in trouble with the law, but now she found herself facing up to 15 years in prison.

Trump: Alternate Reality or Just Plain Crazy?

He has asserted that construction has begun on his border wall (it has not), that he is one of the most popular American presidents in history (he is not), that he “always” opposed the Iraq war (he did not), that the stock market reopened the day after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 (it did not), that his tax cut was the largest in history (it was not) and that the United States is the only country that guarantees citizenship to those born here (it is not).
