Reza Aslan called Donald Trump a ‘piece of sh-t’, now Trumpers want Aslan fired

Reza Aslan is an Iranian-American author, commentator, professor, political analyst and host of a CNN show, Believer with Reza Aslan. In his CNN show (which I do not watch), he seeks to learn more about world religions. You can read his Wiki page here – his political analysis comes from a theological (intellectual, political theology) point of view. For years, I’ve enjoyed his analysis on various cable news shows and I generally think he comes across as well-spoken, professorial and engaged.

Aslan was on Twitter Saturday night, as the news was breaking about the London terror attack. Donald Trump was on Twitter too. As I mentioned on Sunday, Trump was tweeting about the f–king Muslim Ban as the events were unfolding (“We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!”). Trump also retweeted the Drudge Report, because he has access to every intelligence agency in the country, but he still gets his news from Drudge when he wants news about a terrorist attack in one of America’s greatest allies. Aslan commented on Trump’s Muslim-Ban tweet, writing:

“This piece of sh-t is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”

So “Reza Aslan” and “Piece of Sh” were trending on Twitter for much of Sunday. The Deplorables were so triggered, you guys. They had never heard such language, nor had they ever imagined that their hero would ever be called something so deplorable! The crying and whining was unbelievable. They want Reza Aslan to be fired from CNN! They cried about how Obama was never, ever called any names or shown any disrespect! It was amazing.

Meanwhile, Reza’s point was 100% accurate and Trump kept proving Aslan right. Trump was and is downright GLEEFUL that there was a terrorist attack in London because he got to say “SEE? Muslims!” Meanwhile, he never tweeted anything about the Portland hate crime (his staff-run Twitter account tweeted about it three days later), which is absolutely domestic terrorism. And domestic terrorism – terrorism committed by white men, almost entirely, if not white supremacists – has never been on Trump’s radar whatsoever. Trump is a racist piece of sh-t who uses terrorist attacks to promote his own racist, unconstitutional policies. He is a racist piece of sh-t who ignores – if not actively encourages – domestic terrorists when they are part of his base of white supremacists.

Also, the POS POTUS tweet-attacked the Muslim mayor of London, Sadiq Khan. Khan was trying to encourage Londoners to stay calm and Trump was literally heckling Mayor Khan for doing that.

Here’s Mayor Khan’s response:

After his Sunday morning tweets, the Piece of Sh-t went golfing for the second time this weekend.

      Even Putin was semi-dignified in his response. DoPOS Drumpf will never be presidential not matter what his supporters say.

      • Snappyfish says:

        At this point there is no way to deny his supporters are either (or an assortment of) ignorant, xenophobic, bigoted, misogynistic , racist trolls

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Yes. But not *working class* ignorant/xenophobic/bigoted/misogynistic/racist trolls.

    • doofus says:

      who is so so concerned about his son seeing him “decapitated” that he ran to NYC to comfort him. no, wait…he went golfing.

      who is so concerned about the terror attacks in the UK that he stayed in DC to work on helping the Brit gov’t as needed. no, wait…he went golfing.


  2. lightpurple says:

    Aslan’s description was quite accurate. Voldemort’s orange turd is on a twitter rampage again this morning and today his target is the court system and his own Justice Department. Of course, he is ordering them to rule in his favor and insists that they will and if they don’t, he’ll just do what he wants any way.

    • jwoolman says:

      That was my immediate reaction. Probably not wise for the career, but definitely accurate. Trump’s tweets in such matters are truly disgusting.

    • Original T.C. says:

      He told no lies! I love Reza Aslan, he is not only super-smart and number 1 on my hot professors list but can debate anyone leaving them in the dust. Drumpf will fall flat on his nose in the dirt if he goes after Reza.

      Drumpf went over the line on all his tweets during the attacks on Londoners this weekend. No humanity, a complete sociopath with no feeling. He deserved to be call a piece of shat for celebrating the death of innocent people just to be right.

    • holly hobby says:

      Let him keep tweeting. It will be entered into court records. He doesn’t get it. If you don’t say anything, they have nothing on you and you may possibly even win the argument. The attorneys are using it against him.

      Obviously he doesn’t understand law either.

  3. SusanneToo says:

    Mr. Aslan should have called him a pu$$ygrabbing piece of sh1t. The Deplorables love that pu$$ygrabbing stuff. They wear it on tee shirts.

    • Shambles says:

      Right?! They want this man fired from his job for saying “piece of sh!t,” but they literally gave the “grab them by the pussy” guy the highest office in the land. I have a f*cking headache.

  4. Nicole says:

    Good luck with that deplorables. Funny how it’s supposedly liberals that are snowflakes

    • sarri says:

      Trumpkin Snowflakes are hypocrites.

    • bleu_moon says:

      I love that deplorables who were wearing “Trump/Pence F@ck Your Feelings” shirts at his rallies now hyperventilate over every perceived slight.

    • doofus says:

      the hypocrisy astounds me. they called Obama and Hillary some of the absolute ugliest things but they think Dear Leader Drumpf should NEVER NEVER NEVER be criticized.

      • AnnaKist says:

        That’s what I came to say, doofus. I’m not even American, and yet can remember so many instances when the trumpsters were disrespectful to Mr Obama, Mrs Obama and worse, their young daughters. And they are STILL doing it. I think Reza Aslan was very restrained in his assessment of president ignoramus. Every opportunity he gets to prove everyone wrong about what an absolute tosser he is, he wastes by confirming, once again, that he is unfit, unqualified, too ignorant, too thick, too inept and absolutely useless to be the president of the local dog pound, much less the president of the United States of America. Never mind, tRump, just golf on, plonker.

    • Megan says:

      Deplorables can’t handle the truth.

    • holly hobby says:

      Well they thought they got rid of Kathy Griffin so they have a shot with this guy too. Sorry freedom of speech. He didn’t threaten the president and there were no questionable pics.

      No apologies needed.

      • Gretchen says:

        And this is what drives me bananas with their hypocrisy, they’re always getting hysterical about freedom of speech when their own, open bigotry is called out but somehow that same right NEVER applies to anyone else.

  5. Indira says:

    Most of the time it’s homegrown terrorists so his tweet was just stupid.

  6. Trump gives my soul hemorrhoids. Aslan is teacher hot. That is all for now.

  7. Toot says:

    Piece of sh%t is what Trump should be called for now on. It fits him perfectly

  8. Escaped Convent says:

    Everybody’s fired! First, the Trumpsters will get all the celebrities fired if they criticize Rump, then they will move their operation to us regular people who criticize/hate him, and get us all fired too. If first-graders criticize him, if patients in hospitals criticize him, if every golden retriever in America barks an anti-Trump comment…..they’re FIRED.

    • Juls says:

      Yep, when Emperor Turd sends the Thought Police, all of us that comment on CB are screwed. Except we won’t be FIRED, we’ll all be sent straight to room 101.

  9. KJA says:

    A* response from Sadiq Khan. Also, for people who are always calling liberals ‘snowflakes’ and talking about how ‘triggered’ they are-Trumpsters seem to get in their feelings about every little thing

    • Erinn says:

      Oh most of the right is way more snowflakey and more often triggered. For a group of people who (largely) seem to hate the whole ‘safe space’ thing, they certainly get riled up whenever someone says something vaguely related to them.

      • KJA says:

        The hypocrisy of it all. No sense of self awareness whatsoever. We’ll see who gets the most offended about things next time they attempt to boycott Starbucks because their Christmas cups don’t have enough reindeer on them.

    • jwoolman says:

      Also look for John Oliver’s recent show, it’s mainly focused on the Paris agreement so you’ll see that in the title on YouTube. But he starts out with a splendid rebuttal to American media talking about the U.K. “reeling” from the attacks. They’re made of sterner stuff than that.

      • Esmom says:

        Ha, thanks for the tip. I saw a tweet from an Obama staffer saying something about how he is in London and has seen no one reeling. So much garbage from the right about how London and Paris are now cesspools with police afraid to be in certain areas, blah, blah, blah. The “reeling” narrative fits right into that spin. And the deplorable mindlessly gobble it up and spit it back out as fact.

        Also, did you see the photo of the guy running from the bridge with his beer in his hand, steady and unspilled? Sterner stuff indeed, lol.

      • jwoolman says:

        Twitter apparently exploded with people pointing out what really has people in the U.K. reeling… Really funny and so British.

        #ThingsThat LeaveBritainReeling

      • KJA says:

        Then you had ridiculous people on Twitter like Katie Hopkins talking about how ‘London has fallen’-nah mate.

        The guy with the pint was hilarious though-considering he probably paid over a fiver for it, good on him!

      • Trashaddict says:

        Links, please!

    • hmmm says:

      It makes sense. Trumpsters and their lefty ilk feed off emotions, are reactive, whereas the rest of us have at the very least a nodding acquaintance with reason.

  10. ArchieGoodwin says:

    He is a piece of shi!t. just read his twitter this morning.

  11. guest says:

    Many Republicans pretend that they never attacked Barack for the last 8 years.

    • jwoolman says:

      There were so many vicious attacks and outright threats against Obama on the net, I really thought he would never make it to the end of his term alive. I was forced to listen to the Glenn Beck show at the vet’s while waiting for my cat while she had multiple surgeries around that time, and they were essentially calling for violent overthrow of the government. I was amazed the Secret Service wasn’t knocking at the door during the broadcasts.

      Trump is having a relatively easy time of it. Even with Kathy Griffin’s stunt.

      • Esmom says:

        Amen about Trump having it easy. In fact he’s been given a free pass, I’d say.

        I saw a compilation of actual quotes from Ted Nugent during the Obama era. I don’t think I’d ever heard them all word for word before. Disgusting beyond belief. FAR worse than Kathy Griffin’s stunt. smh.

  12. smee says:

    POTUS – POS – close enuf – same meaning these days.

    This journalist-attacking is a bad sign for the USA

  13. Incredulous says:

    Do they really want that headline – “Man fired for being right”?

  14. Mia4s says:

    It should come as no surprise to most of America, but the rest of us all have better things to do than respond to the piece of sh-t you managed to elect to your highest office. 🙄

  15. Giulia says:

    Fundamentalists and terrorists are pieces of sh*t. Trump is a piece of sh*t.

  16. wow says:

    Trump *is* a piece of sh*t. He’s also stupid, lazy, corrupt and cruel. The only thing he’s managed to accomplish so far is to make GW Bush look like a genius.

  17. RBC says:

    Every time trump puts out a tweet it just shows how unprepared he was to become President. He is lacking in any sort of diplomacy or filter when he tweets or talks in public. One day he will piss off a world leader and start World War 3. Also instead of screaming for critics of trump to be fired, maybe trump’s supporters should be screaming for some of his advisors to be given the pink slip. Certainly does not look like he is getting much good advice and for a man with no politician experience, he needs all the help he can get.

  18. Pedro45 says:

    It’s not the first time that Trump has taken Mayor Khan’s words out of context. I feel like there’s some specific reason for why Trump feels such hatred and mistrust of Mayor Khan…but I can’t quite put my finger on it. I almost have it. I’m sure it will come to me.

    • SusanneToo says:

      It is a puzzle, what could it possibly be? Because Mr. Khan is smarter, better looking, better liked? Hmmmm, IDK, gotta keep pondering.

    • Esmom says:

      Ha, yeah, such a mystery. I’m sure it will come to you.

      I don’t know how many times I can say I thought I couldn’t despise him or his supporters any more than I already do but every day brings new lows.

      So Bigly didn’t even take time from his golf schedule to console his son who was so traumatized by Kathy Griffin? What shock.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Re: Barron, if he did see that Kathy Griffin photo (which I don’t think he did), it’s probably because he was watching TV because it’s the only time he sees his dad.

      • Esmom says:

        Ha. I don’t think he saw it either but if Trump wants to play that card he should at least try to keep up the pretense.

    • RBC says:

      I wonder if it is for the same reason he hates former President Obama?……..hmmm

    • Lightpurple says:

      Mayor Khan has much nicer hair.

  19. SusanneToo says:

    GB, can you please cancel POS-in-Chief’s visit to your shores? If not, start stocking up on rotten eggs now.

  20. Rapunzel says:

    Trump is tanking his SCOTUS case by calling his EO a ban. And insulting the court system doesn’t help either.
    I’m humiliated that this pos represents us. He’s so unqualified. I can’t believe we elected an idiot who is so dumb they he whines “the courts are slow and political.” He actually thinks politics shouldn’t be political; I cannot stop rolling my eyes.

    • Beth says:

      All that time Spicer and the others insisted this wasn’t a “ban” it was just extra security has been flushed down the toilet. Trumps tweeting stubby fingers make more problems every day. Someone so unqualified is so embarrassing for us

    • Lightpurple says:

      He’s not just insulting the courts, he is insulting his own DOJ, which has to defend him.

  21. Merritt says:

    Reza Aslan was spot on.

    Trump didn’t care about what happened in Portland and I’m fairly certain neither he nor his staff ever said anything about the black student who was stabbed to death in Maryland.

  22. Toot says:

    POS Trump is on a role this morning. Just wanted to try out my new moniker. It works so well, everyone should use it.

  23. Beth says:

    There were people at a pro Trump rally at the WH this weekend. Many were holding “CNN is ISIS” signs. That and Trumps thoughtless tweets show what POS people can be.
    Right now the Deputy Assistant to the president is defending Trumps tweets from this morning. Says we shouldn’t make a big deal of these tweets because they’re not executive orders. So frustrating when they call it “fake news” and call us stupid when they don’t like what’s being said even if it’s true. If Trump makes these tweets, we can’t ignore it, because he’s the fucking President! The whole world sees these tweets!

    • Rapunzel says:

      Lol….it’s like the WH is admitting that Trump is a whiny man-baby we should all ignore. It’s hilarious. Or would be if Trump wasn’t so dangerous.

    • Esmom says:

      Re the “CNN is ISIS” signs, I saw a clip of a reporter asking one of those guys what his thoughts were on Trump pulling out of the Paris agreement. He said he hadn’t done any research on it but trusted Trump’s opinion. And there you have it folks, the low information voter in a nutshell.

      • Beth says:

        That’s really scary. Too many Trump trusters who actually know nothing. When will this nonsense stop?

      • Esmom says:

        I know, to take the time to go to a protest and hold inflammatory signs and admit that you don’t know anything about anything, that you just mindlessly support Trump? So scary.

      • Beth says:

        These people are shameful if they can compare a cable news channel to terrorists. They have a lot of learning to do

      • ichsi says:

        In times like these I wish people had to take tests to prove they understand the subject matter they’re voting on prior to elections. Because the people putting this complete failure into office certainly didn’t.

  24. adastraperaspera says:

    Free speech means you can lie every day like Tr*mp and his trolls if you want. Or you can just tell the truth, like Reza did. Resist!

  25. Kate says:

    Piece of shit is one of the nicest things you would say about Papaya Pinochet.

  26. WingKingdom says:

    “He is literally a racist piece of sh-t who ignores – if not actively encourages – domestic terrorists when they are part of his base of white supremacists.”

    And this is why I prefer to get my Trump news from Celebitchy. Y’all can just say what is true!

  27. lowercaselois says:

    CNN apologized this morning for using profanity on tv, but hey, Reza was just expressing what many of us and journalists think about Trump. When I am alone reading or watching something about Trump I do a lot of cursing myself.

    • Beth says:

      I watch CNN every night. I have no idea how Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper control themselves from swearing at Jeffrey Lord and Jack Kingston

      • nicole says:

        Beth I agree, I sometimes wonder what they would love to say to them, but I guess they cant really express there opinions in that way, but I must say, I think Don Lemon thinks he is a complete joke, he is often just laughing as if to say ‘ how did this happpen’ and you can see by Anderson Cooper he is getting really peeved off at the way they constantly find excuses for him, but I find myself just ignoring what there responses are because they are full of sh*t like Trump.

      • Beth says:

        Nicole, I couldn’t stop laughing when Anderson said to Jeffrey that “if Trump took a dump on his desk you’d defend it.” Love when Anderson rolls his eyes and Don laughs. Must be hard to not scream with frustration at Lord and Kingston!

      • Persistent Cat says:

        I’m addicted to CNN and mad at myself for planning an after work event on Thursday as I’d rather be home that evening watching all the Comey analysis.

        Jack Kingston and Jeffrey Lord are the worst. Kayleigh McEnany and Jason Miller can sometimes (ok, rarely) be critical but JK and JL are the absolute worst. They will defend everything, even though the evidence is right in front of them. Don Lemon just outright laughs at them at this point.

      • nicole says:

        Beth, I loved that response too, I think Anderson was at breaking point at that moment, but he had to apologise later in the segment, so I guesss they have to be careful in what they say, but it was a good one.

      • nicole says:

        Persistent Cat, I am also addicted to CNN, I watch it straight through everynight from Anderson 360 to Tonight with Don Lemon, I love it, even though I cant stand having to listen to the Trump supporters and there stupid excuses that they come up with, will also be wathching the Comey hearings, hope it is going to be good and he lets Trump have it.

  28. TyrantDestroyed says:

    Oh c’mon, everybody on Twitter was calling him a form of s*it or f*ck. My favourite one was f*ckshow. I’ve nerver heard that word before but totally suits him.
    Lord Trumplentiskin inspires zero respect to anybody with the basic level of intelligence.

  29. Crumpet says:

    There is a degree of respect that should be shown to the POTUS if you are an American. I believed that when Obama was president and I believe it now that Trump is.

    • David says:


    • jwoolman says:

      Trump lost my respect long ago. He is spitting on the Constitution and disgracing the office he holds. This should not be encouraged by a false sense of automatic respect for the office. He has lost all right to that.

      I’ve disagreed with other Presidents, but this is the only one I’ve felt this way about. It really isn’t about policies, atrocious though his often are. Others were also prone to atrocious policies. It’s about him and the way he acts and the way he talks/tweets and the way he disrespects most of the country and the world. He doesn’t deserve respect because he doesn’t give it to others.

      I won’t feel the same way about President Pence, even though I think his policies will be pretty much as awful as Trump’s.

      • doofus says:

        “This should not be encouraged by a false sense of automatic respect for the office.”

        and that’s exactly what he figured he get. that, just by being POTUS, he’d be as well liked and respected as his predecessor. he didn’t figure out that O was loved for WHO HE IS…his accomplishments, his class, his intelligence, his eloquence, his charm and compassion, his obvious (REAL) love for his family…

    • Beth says:

      Trump deserves absolutely no respect! He shows zero respect for Americans or our country. These irresponsible tweets and his childish attitude are embarassing. I won’t respect and guy who is disrespectfully bullying and making the world hate us. I’m more worried every day because of his bullshit. Not fair for a president to be anything like he is. Disgusting. I hate him

    • nicole says:

      He deserves no respect, because he shows no respect to the people of his country, and he showed no respect to President Obama.

    • NtSoSclBtrfly says:

      No, not when POTUS slowly kills democracy, actively undermining it, and harming the citizens of not only the US, but the entire world with his greedy deregulation of environmentally protective legislation.

      JUST NO.

    • Nina says:

      I’m Canadian, so I suppose that “degree of respect” thing doesn’t apply to me.

    • SusanneToo says:

      trump is a giant sh1tstain on the Office of the Presidency. He deserves no respect at all. What the American people and the World deserve is to have his entire administration expunged.

      ETA. Could you please list all the occasions of respect the Rethuglicans showed to President Obama? All the respect he received from Faux News? From Breitbart? From alex jones? From limbaugh? From the Religious Right? From the Tea Partiers? From the Deplorables? Waiting on that list.

    • bluhare says:

      I am not American but I live here. I absolutely have respected the office of the president (even under George W Bush and I didn’t think much of his presidency), but I don’t for this person. I refuse to even call him president. He’s less presidential than my dog. Who, I want you all to know, can be very dignified.

      • adastraperaspera says:

        Me too. And our cat is more patriotic than Tr*mp. We were laughing about this over the weekend. I mean, it’s a true statement!

    • Sophia's Side eye says:

      Respect is earned.

      • Trashaddict says:

        100%! And if you take the office of the President and you use it for your own twisted sick personal agenda (or maybe O’Bannon’s because I really don’t believe Trump has much in the way of brains), then no respect is deserved. Tarring and feathering is an old-fashioned idea, but seems so appropriate here-

    • Sixer says:

      There’s a difference between respecting the office and respecting the person. If the person holding the office is bringing disrepute on the nation, surely it’s one’s patriotic duty to point it out?

      • jwoolman says:

        It’s really because we do respect the office that we don’t respect Trump.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      If a President can’t be respectful of other countries within 24 hours of a terrorist attack, then your rule is null and void.

    • Graymatters says:

      I still respect the office. I only wish the POS President does.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Nope. No position entitles anyone to be able to disrespect, threaten, and dehumanize and still get everyone’s respect. (And Crumpet, your need to always rush to the defense of Trump and his accomplices is questionable at best.) I will never respect Trump and frankly I don’t have much respect for his little sycophants requesting that the idiotic, racist, misogynistic rapist be respected either. I question the ethics, judgment, and self-respect of anyone who would even make a statement like that.

    • Shelly says:

      I will never show someone respect who thinks it’s ok to grab women by the pussy
      That it’s ok to tweet the way he did after the London attack
      Or who encourages people to shoot his competitor in campaign speeches.
      Or the tons of other horrifying things he has said and done

  32. Disco Dancer says:

    How cute that the right wingers and the Trumpettes think that liberals are special snowflakes? They called for Kathy Griffin’s head and got her fired over a very tasteless joke, yet they scream “Trump that bitch” and mock Hilary Clinton’s portrait at the White House?

    Aslan is an academic fraud, a lier and a hypocrite, but he’s definitely right about Trumpty Dumpty.

    This beautiful man tells no lies. 👏🏼 DT is a piece of 💩

  35. applepie says:

    Have just looked at daily fail article re Dumf tweets to sadiq khan London mayor. It looks like most of the comments are from Dumf supporters. They are saying things like ‘Dumf should be our prime minister’ or ‘if only our politicians could put our people first, just like trump’ . …gaaaaaa . I look at the daily fail (DMail) I really don’t know why. I am ashamed!

    • Trashaddict says:

      I used to look at the Daily Mail, applepie. It’s like junkfood news, you get a craving every now and then. I do miss it but I stopped reading after the election because of all the trolls living in the comments section.

  36. Tanya says:

    He spoke the truth. I don’t have a problem with what he said.

  37. xflare says:

    Thanks America for making whats happened in London and Manchester lately all about you…..ugh

    • Beth says:

      That’s not fair to say. It’s not Americans trying to make this about us. The crazy president is. We have no control over the nonsense he says or tweets. Hopefully he’ll be impeached soon before he makes to world hate us forever. In case you don’t know, most of America hates him.

    • Trashaddict says:

      I’m sorry, xflare. It absolutely should be about the victims. Condolences to their families and wishes that the survivors will heal as intactly as possible. On a separate note, I truly admire British fortitude, diplomacy and the ability to brilliantly but subtly take others down a notch in a verbal foray. I wish your more expert practitioners of the art would flood Trump’s Twitter with backhanded compliments. Then we could watch and see if he recognizes them for what they are.

  38. jwoolman says:

    I should point out that mockery is a tool for unarmed resistance against public officials and tyrants that Americans have been using since long before the Revolution.

    And Trump has always been eminently mockable for many reasons … But really, what else can you do with a President who campaigned by hate talk against so many groups of people, who incited violence against protesters, who encouraged rally attendees to chant the most obnoxious things including open threats to kill his opponent in various ways, who made veiled threats himself against his opponent and any SCOTUS appointments she might make (not my imagination, the Secret Service had several serious talks with him and his campaign over that one), who openly mocked the disabled, who lied 75% of the time and continues to brazenly lie?

    It would be wrong to try to pretend all this is normal. It simply is not normal and this man is downright dangerous. He is impulsive and willfully ignorant and is prone to narcissistic rages, not a good combination for someone who can unilaterally launch nuclear missiles within a few minutes.

    The Republicans may have been stuck with him as their nominee because of the peculiarities of the primaries, but the sane ones among them should have all had the courage to openly repudiate him and pledge to vote for his opponent, since even though they would disagree with her policies at least she was sane, knowledgeable, stable, and unlikely to blow up the planet. Country over Party.

    We honestly don’t even know if Trump won fairly. The lack of paper backup for machines made recounts difficult, although they might have been able to do forensic examinations that might have helped. What convinced me that there may very well have been vote count manipulations was the behavior of Trump’s people when recounts in three states were paid for by people around the country. They went to court to block the recounts. There is only one reason to try to block a recount, and that is if you are afraid the recount will lose you the election. The last time this happened in 2000, when Bush 2 went to the SCOTUS to overturn the decision by the Florida SCO to keep counting, an unofficial continuation of the recounts revealed that Gore actually did win Florida’s electoral votes and should have been President rather than Bush 2.

    The Trumpers have figured out the game that the radical left has been playing for decades now. Get anyone in the public eye you don’t agree with fired and groveling. You hear it whenever someone is shouted down for being racist, homophobic or whatever and the left demands an apology and a firing. Lesson to the left is be careful of using new tactics like public shaming and having people fired because the tables may be turned on you.

      Both sides play that tired game. The right called liberal progressives communists and socialists during the last 8 years and beyond for supporting entitlements. During the Iraq War, in the beginning, a person was accused of being unAmerican or against the troops if they weren’t supportive of the war. Yet these same people claimed to be tough skinned patriots who thought PC lefties were precious weaklings. Their lack of commitment to a stance makes them ridiculous. I am left and proud of it but the SJWs and over PC rigidity is annoying to me too. It takes the focus away from the real subject in order to whine about an insult that hurts no one’s feelings.

    Trumpcucks are the scum of the earth…whiny simpering babies who pretend to be all about “personal responsibility” but who never stop blubbering and pointing fingers. For eight years they smirked and giggled over the most vile stuff re: Obama, but now that the shoe is on the other foot they demand respect, respect they’ll never, ever get.

    What if then prime minister Tony Blair would have criticized mayor Rudi Giuliani the day after 9/11?

    You see how absurd Trump’s behaviour is! If somone would have behaved the same way to the American’s as Trump behaves know, they would never be forgiven.

      LOL! You must not remember the absolute HATRED Bush got, from Kanye saying he hated black people to others depicting him as stupid and satan. This is not a party thing, the president generally gets a lot of flack. Although the media is definetly not on trump’s side as they were on Obama, this is for sure.

      • doofus says:

        but did the president of a different country criticize the mayor of NO in the aftermath of Katrina? because that’s what we’re talking about…not general criticism of the president as the head of the US.

        we’re talking about a head of state criticizing (and deliberately misquoting, and then doubling down on the lie) the mayor of a city that just was the target of a terrorist attack (or, in the case of Katrina, a horrible natural disaster).

        your post, while accurate in the sense that Dubya got (well-deserved) criticism for his handling of the post-Katrina problems (please recall “you’re doing a heckuva job, Brownie”), is not at all relevant to this topic.

    Ah, I see, only certain kinds of people are allowed to say what they think.

    This is just more proof that Trump supporters and their complicit little apologists are really all about silencing/deflecting ANY criticism or negativity about the Trump Administration. It’s why probably about 95 percent of complaints about something someone said to or about a Trump or Trump-enablers being ‘too far’ or ‘over the line’ are not to be taken seriously at this point. These people have become the ‘boy who cried wolf’.

    I suppose its his opinion, free speech. But people can now react anyway that they want to it, which is also free speech/expression. I don’t watch his show so could care less, but I don’t share his opinion. Live and let live.

    You know, his supportes were not hesitant to call Obama the antichrist.
    Did we all rally to have them fired from all of their respective jobs?
    just making it very clear, that with such hatred comes blinding one-sidedness and oblviousness to ones own 1) foolishness 2) lack of logical reasoning 3) incapacity for fairness 4) self-centerdness

    And these people— this type of people– have taken the upper hand now??

    Hmm… I don’t know, guys. I think if a conservative figurehead (like someone on Fox News) called Obama, or an LGBT hero a piece of shit a lot of left-leaning folks would be outraged and call for them to be fired too. Of course, Trump is scum but I don’t know if it’s fair to make fun of Trump supporter’s outrage as if people on the left wouldn’t act that way if the shoe was on the other foot. There’s so much about Trump supporters to make fun of, I don’t think their reaction is one of them.

    From the description of Reza and his show I really, really want to watch it! He sounds amazing, I wonder if I can access his show from Oz.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      I really don’t think most liberals would do that JUST over a conservative randomly calling Obama or an LGBT ‘hero’ a price of shit. There would have to be something racial or sexist/homophobic thrown into the comment.

      • Vox says:

        Perhaps, but I still think it’s much ado about nothing.I’ve seen people on the ultra left call for people to be fired over matters just as petty as this, but I do agree less people who lean left would do so.

        For what it’s worth I would be considered very much left wing myself, but I’m not American so I don’t apply the title to myself.
