    And because trump delayed signing, he cost people an unemployment check. He has no concern for the wellbeing of others and I can’t wait for him to loose government-backed power.

    • Dentav says:

      The dems were trying to give money to other countries instead of the US though. I don’t know any other democrat who’s upset about this. Most businesses are open and hiring, desperate for employees.

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah, that’s called foreign aid, and its a standard part of our budget every damn year. And no, most businesses are not “open and hiring, desperate for employees,” especially in the restaurant industry.

      • SamC says:

        What is hiring where I live are minimum wage, mostly retail or Amazon warehouse, and almost all part time, jobs with no benefits, security, etc. So yes, jobs are there but for anyone who lost their full time job and is trying to support themselves, forget a family, it’s not that simply cut and dry.

      • Eleonora says:

        My country ‘gave’ a lot of money to other countries too.

        Now people in those countries are buying our services and products, because they financed economic prosperity with it.

        Same happens within a country: if the rich don’t hoard all the money, the poor and middle class can buy products and become skilled labor.

        It’s too bad some people in the US think that’s communism. It actually helps capitalism, in a less “feudal-masters-and-peasants” sort of way.

      • Eleonora says:

        @SAMC, certain big companies destroy jobs in entire industries, but then they say people should be grateful for the shitty jobs they ‘give’. No matter that the better jobs were destroyed.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Dentav, I can tell where you get your “information” by the way you phrase it. You need to find better sources.

        First of all, there were multiple bills that were passed. 1 was the COVID relief bill and the other was the omnibus spending bill that funds the government. Your comments were about the spending bill, not the COVID relief bill.

        Secondly, foreign aid provisions are a regular part of gov’t spending bills…but in this particular bill the foreign aid was part of the White House budget request for fiscal 2021. You can’t truthfully say “The dems were trying to give money to other countries” when it was the Trump Administration who actually made the request.

      • Midge says:

        The foreign aid is part of the omnibus bill. You are part of the problem.

      • EllenOlenska says:

        There were also a whole bunch of fighter jets in the omnibus bill.

      • Badrockandroll says:

        Not really true: two bills were combined for expediency. One deals with COVID relief, one deals with typical yearly government expenses. Foreign aid falls in the second.
        The amounts of foreign aid were proposed by the White House, and are consistent with amounts proposed by the White House and approved by #45 for his entire term. Except in a OAN/Newsmax world, the Dems had nothing to do with it.
        And incidentally, Congress’s proposals for COVID relief sat on Mitch’s desk for eight months. He was too busy approving judges. He also has been sitting on the approval of the conflict of interest counselled that would have investigated his wife Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. Her family firm got more than $350 000 in loans and grants for COVID relief.
        Georgians vote Blue and clean up this mess!

      • Kkat says:

        lol are you trying to imply YOU are a democrat? It sounds like it by your any other democrat comment. It’s obvious your a trumper because you are spouting the same talking points the deplorables in my extended family are.
        And what your saying is bullshit anyway, the foreign aid is in the budget part of the legislation that was passed and it’s almost exactly what the white house senate asked for. Do some actual research and look at the proposed republican/white house budget and compare it to what is in the omnibus package.
        And stay off Parler/Fox news/Brietbart/Facebook/Oan/Newsmax it just makes you look really stupid when you spout their talking points.

      • Lemons says:

        @Dentav, I don’t get these types of comments. Are you hoping to sway the uneducated, sheltered suburban mom demographic that seems to be hyper present in MAGA circles? Most are not making their way over here. We’re an educated lot here with most having pretty liberal/progressive values because being a good person and wanting to guarantee the wellbeing of our society is now seen as left-ist.

        You should really take that somewhere else. Like Reddit’s r/conservative subreddit. They live in the alternate reality you are seeking.

  2. Merricat says:

    This was simply to demonstrate that he still wields power. He intends to eff up everyone who hasn’t shown him absolute fealty, including Mitch McConnell. He is a child.

    • OnceUponA says:

      Let’s not forget – not one syllable about the Domestic Terrorism in Tennessee — but tweets complaining that Melanie doesn’t get enough magazine covers.

  3. tx_mom says:

    So now all the state systems are going to crash from the overload of reapplications. This is exactly what all unemployed, stressed people need right now. Sheesh.

  4. Kelly says:

    I still haven’t seen him say anything about the suicide bomber in Nashville either.

    • Chrissy says:

      He hasn’t mentioned anything about the 330,000 Americans who’ve died of Covid-19 either. He’s a narcissist. If it doesn’t affect him personally, he DGAF.

  5. Digital Unicorn says:

    Of course he did – he did it because he could. He’s going to burn as much as he can before 20th Jan and he does NOT care at all on the damage it will do to the country, his supporters or even GOP.

    Pence should not get a pass either.

    TBH, him turning on GOP taking them down with him could be the only good thing he does. He’s already gone for Moscow Mitch on twitter.

    Still not a word from him on what happened in Nashville. You can bet it was a MAGAT that he has encouraged with his hate speech.

    • jwoolman says:

      The authorities are investigating the possibility that the guy who killed himself by exploding his van in Nashville is a believer in the lizard people conspiracy. Allegedly the Clintons and the Obamas are secretly alien lizards, according to the conspiracy theory. Apparently the alien lizards like the Democratic platform better than the Republican platform.

      That doctor that Trump praised to the hilt is a believer in that theory also, among other things like demon sperm.

  6. Lady D says:

    OMG Blueberry! Too cute.

  7. Seraphina says:

    Trump only cares about one thing: himself. Anyone who thinks differently can go ask the GOP party.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      True – GOP will come to rue the day they got into bed with him.

      Whats the story about how he became their choice for POTUS? I missed all that.

      • Holly hobby says:

        I don’t think he was their choice. They were resistant until he got Kompromat on them from the Russian hack ( they infiltrated both dnc and rnc servers but you only heard about one).

        After that they all fell in line. Ask Marco “I jumped the line” Rubio who was shit tweeting dr Fauci.

      • Becks1 says:

        It was kind of just the worst-case scenario. You had this clown car of a primary, with SO MANY republicans running, and the voters were split between people like Kasich of Ohio, Ted Cruz, etc – problematic for many reasons but at least working within the confines of the law. I think actually in most of the primary races, while Trump won, more people voted for Kasich, Cruz (I cant remember who else ran – Christie – there was a ton). So it turned out that most Republican voters actually didn’t prefer Trump, but because of how many were running, Trump ended up taking the majority of the delegates. I think if it had been a straight primary between Kasich and Trump for example, Trump might not have won. The increasing potential that he would be the candidate emboldened his supporters and when he got the nomination, it was just a shitshow as we have seen.

      • Seraphina says:

        I too missed why they selected him, out of all the others they could have easily placed in his shoes.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I disagree with the idea that somehow the GOP and Trump are different factions. They might have been at the start of the primaries, but by the time he was the nominee the establishment embraced him because the GOP voters embraced him….and still do. Let’s not give them a pass and act like Trump was something that was forced on the Republican party. They welcomed him with opened arms and supported his agenda.

        He was the GOP nominee because he was overtly bigoted and it resonated voters. Once the establishment realized he wasn’t being politically punished for it, they jumped on board as well.

  8. KBeth says:

    Pathetic, petty lard ass until the very end.

  9. Beatriz Elizabeth Santos says:

    I was watching The Reagans Showtime documentary over the weekend. The similarities between both Reagan and Trump’s presidency kind of shocked me. The cruelty to regular Americans and the priority for big corporations- history repeats itself.

    • Anne Call says:

      Yep. This sh*t didn’t start with trump, Republican Party has been pushing anti science bs, resentment of immigrants, taking away women’s choice and cutting taxes and regulations for their donors for decades. Trump is just the natural outcome of their dumbing down of their voters. Really tired of having some idiot lawmaker out of nowheresville making decisions that majority of the population doesn’t even support. Ready to Calexit.

  10. Coco says:

    Trump recently complained that magazines are all snobs for not putting Melania on the cover.
    I have a very strong memory of Melania being on the cover of Vogue at the time of their marriage. The photo shoot was of her in wedding gowns. What was really bizarre to me was that there was a Hillary Swank piece in the same issue. A two time Oscar winner was considered less interesting than a trophy wife. Even as a teenager I believed that Trump bought the cover story, and stopped buying Vogue regularly as a result.

    • Becks1 says:

      I remember that – I do think you’re right, either Trump or NBC paid for the cover (remember this was when the Apprentice was still really popular and Melania was on that show occasionally, I think the show started right before their wedding so the wedding sort of served as promotion for it.)

    • Anna says:

      He definitely paid for her to get the cover. I remember that and it was the beginning of the end of Vogue having any cred, imho

  11. SamC says:

    I figured this was his way of getting back at everyone who didn’t vote for him since he couldn’t actually identify his supporters vs detractors, at least in the voting booth. And since he DGAF for anyone but himself, he figured screw everyone.

  12. Eleonora says:

    I feel deeply sorry for the ones affected by this…who voted for Biden.

    For those who voted for Trump.. can’t say the same.

  13. jferber says:

    One of the big newspapers figured that all of Trump’s golfing on his own properties over these four years have cost the tax payer over 151 million dollars. For his golfing. On his own properties. And now that President-elect Biden is coming in (he has just complained of “obstruction” from the Depts. of Budget and Defense in the transition), the Republicans will start bitching about deficits again. So sick of this tainted party.

  14. Victoria says:

    Tiny pretty things is awful!! I binged for Christmas and had no idea what the hell was going on. I do not recommend

    • Lemons says:

      It is definitely terrible in the same way Pretty Little Liars was…and that CW trashiness is something that I love. All sorts of problematic, but I will watch a second season.
