Looks like he's thinking "Makes me look good but I'll be glad when it's over"

Trump supporters: Wise up !

Today, I bought the newspaper (Journal de Montréal).
There's an article by Richard Martineau that spots some interesting things about Trump and his fans.
I thought I could translate some parts. Here's what he wrote...

"When I write about Trump, there's always some guys that write me back saying 'Why are you after Trump ?. Are you a Leftist ?'"
"These guys keep forgetting that there's more than the Left-Right axis in life"
"There's also Smart versus Dumb, Class versus Vulgarity, Abilities versus Inaptitude"
"Trump is a shame for Americans, Right, Republicans and Conservatives"
"He feeds all prejudices the Left has against the Right"
"Not only he has a fascination for those leaders who succeeded in eliminating opposition and the Press, but he's also vulgar, coarse, narcissic, selfish, uncultivated, inept, et thinks money will buy anything"
"He places his own family at key places (his son-in-law is supposed to solve the israel-palestian conflict ???)"
"He wants military parade. He considers Press as an enemy in a Democracy. He maintains the threat of a nuclear war. He gives credit to conspiracy theories. He uses racial arguments to divide Americans"
"And Americans should applaud because of his Right-sided economy politics ?"
"Isn't that what you reproach to the Left, you from the Right ?"
"To be dogmatic and unable of self-criticism ?"
"Well, that's exactly what you do. WISE UP and take the blinders off ! "
"It's as if the Left has rubbed an Aladdin lamp wishing for a Right leader so stupid that it will discredit the Right for decades to come"
"Poof, there comes Trump through the smoke screen"
"Many Republicans are ashamed of Trump. Too bad, they voted him in."
"They held their nose, put his name in the ballot, thinking that's it worth it to get the Power"
"Result: America shot himself in the foot and lost all its moral authority"
"It will take decades to get it back"
"YEAH, BUT ECONOMY IS STRONG !!!"
"First, we overestimate the impact of politics on Economy. When Economy is good, politicians take credit, when it's bad, it is caused by context"
"Second, don't you think it's too high a price to pay ?"
:smoke:

And, that's about all I can read here in Canada in opinion pages, in different newspaper here about the President of United States
:smoke:

Most Americans began seeing changes in their paychecks earlier this year but the distribution of the individual income tax changes vary and Californians are getting less of a cut when compared to the rest of the country.

According to the report, 62 percent of Californians will see their taxes go down, and the average tax cut will be $2,170, which is below the national average of $2,200. The report says 8.6 percent of Californians will see an increase in their taxes, which will average $2,510 and is below the national average of $2,760. California is one of only six states where more than 8 percent of tax units will see an increase.

I believe it's your choice to live in a state that just regulated lpg from being used in new construction.
Ironic that you want to completely switch to electric supplied from coal burning plants in Arizona , Utah and other neighboring states.
If we'd all be livin' in California

Racist Trump... the usual
https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/21/politics/cory-booker-donald-trump-worse-than-a-racist-tweet-cnntv/index.html
https://globalnews.ca/news/5658649/trump-tweets-the-squad-racist/

It's a fact that none can't rebuke.
It may help in 2020, in the short-term, but in the long term, with demographic diversities, it won't.
Trump have solid chances to win in 2020 but the GOP will pay later.
Unless trump change from President to Dictator.
Then USA is stuck with the Right political agenda till the end of times.

Which country will then gain the title of the Leader of the Free World ?
France, Germany, UK, Canada ? :?: :?: :?:

Meanwhile... not of word of justification from Trump's lovers here about Trump's racism.
So, I guess they think too that Trump is a racist but it doesn't bother them a bit.
It says a lot about Trump's supporters,
:P :smoke:

So, you're a racist ! The ones who take Trump's tweets lightly are racist.
:P

You see ? Posting a cartoon says a lot about the one who posted it !

Well... maybe Trump should worry about betting Economy alone will win it for him...
https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/453926-trump-struggles-to-win-over-voters-reaping-economic-boom

I consider that good news. Glad to see some are not blinded by Economy alone.
As if money is the only thing that matters in our World today.

I'd vote for impeach now if it was not so dangerous for the Dems.

I know we won't vote and that it matters less to Americans, but that's how Canadians feel...
https://www.ctvnews.ca/world/nearly-8-in-10-canadians-prefer-dems-over-trump-sanders-biden-most-popular-poll-1.4517305

I'm pretty sure it would be higher in Quebec alone
