    If you don't post the "I Voted" sticker on IG, did you even vote??
    I have that sticker on my wallet. I guess I forgot to make that IG post. I know you jest but I am quite found of that app.

    Playing games with his pain
    He felt his choice of jobs
    Was such a mistake
    He could have been a doctor
    In a soft easy chair
    Instead he chose three stars
    A territorial affair

    But Trump isn't the problem. It's immigrants and poor people.

    Don't you watch the news?
    Also those commie lefty bastards who will turn us into Russia or China even though Russia is right wing and China is more capitalist these days.

    I held my nose and voted Biden but voted GOP in some of the local races. Whatever or whoever you blame for covid and the economic catastrophe it caused, it is what it is (as Trump says) and I don't think Trump as a lameduck second term president will do enough to help main street rank-and-file bread-and-butter economic issues. Tax cuts won't cut it. A booming Wall Street won't cut it. I don't think there's ever been a time in my life where there was a bigger disconnect between main street local economics and what's going on with Wall Street. Small business is getting killed. Movie theaters are getting killed. The movie industry is on life support. 800,000 plus people are newly losing their jobs every week. It's a real mess and Trump's bullshit won't help.

    All that being said, if Biden wins, he should absolutely not be treated with kid gloves. I frankly find the power big tech wields now to be creepy and authoritarian. The New York Post still has their official twitter account shut down which is bullshit.

    Honest question. Has Trump done anything for anyone here on MC that has a positive outcome on their lives?

    Can't think of one thing. Can think of a lot of things I think he's done that's hurt, maybe not specifically me in my daily life, but definitely hurt things I care about.

    He put $1200.00 in my bank account. Tax free. He also pushed through an executive order to supplement the pandemic unemployment thing I'm on for people who work in the arts. So yes.

    Haha. I honestly forgot about the stimulus, but that went to everyone who had a paycheck in 2019.

    The 1200 was a lame one time thing while big business got their usual bailouts. The Trump presidency has seen me going even farther left so there is that.

    Comparing him to Thai junta leader makes me feel less bad about still having to live under the latter, I guess.

    Has anyone else noticed that his makeup has gotten a lot browner since he contracted COVID? I saw a video of him at a rally and I thought he was going to start singing "Mammy."
    Just because...

    Asako I & II (Hamaguchi Ryusuke, 2018) mild

    I thought the same thing. He looked like he had jaundice at the debate tonight.

    Giuliani gets caught on film fondling himself with a girl he thinks is 15.

    Accuses the democrats of meddling with the election.

    Just unreal. How is this shit actually happening?

    It's on Amazon Prime. Judge yourself instead of just reading headlines.

    I watched it as soon as it was available yesterday. It's a joke how much drama they are making out of this.

    Funny scene though. Props to Sasha.

    Pretty disturbing if every news outlet reporting this is just stirring up drama.

    Expect better of the left.

    Giuliani's BS about Hunter Biden's laptop was embarrassing but expected from him and Trump at this point.

    I don't expect better from the left media. They clearly didn't watch the movie either. Same goes for right media, btw.

    There's cringey stuff there from an old man, but nothing that would "cancel a career."

    Just watched it. Giuliani is gross and deserves all the flack he's getting.

    As others have pointed out online, the question over whether he fondles himself obscures the actual issue at hand, which is that Giuliani is ready to rush into even the most half-arsed honeypot scam. Foreign agents would have a field day with morons like him.

    DJ TJ accusing Hunter Biden of using his father's political power for personal gain was all kinds of LOL.

    I mean, if the incident is Trump ripping off his face and revealing Andy Kaufman underneath, who then announces he is dropping out of the race to train for Royal Rumble, I'll take it.
