The Coming MAGA Crackup

Quote

Donald Trump is not the formidable force he was in 2016 or 2020. He’s an angry, sleepy, and embattled old man stuck in courtrooms, not the swaggering strongman dancing and japing in front of 30,000 people at rally after rally. While happy warriors Joe Biden and Kamala Harries campaign across swing states, Trump’s political options are narrowing.

His fundraising is diminished; he’s lost over 200,000 small donors and even his most ardent supporters know their contributions aren’t being used to re-elect Trump but to pay his lavish legal bills. In April, Nikki Haley notched around 17% of the vote in Pennsylvania despite being out of the race for weeks.

Trump lost the message reach he enjoyed before: stuck in the social media hinterlands of Truth Social, he reaches just 7 million people today, as opposed to the almost 90 million he had on Twitter before his ousting in 2021. In 2016, he was able to set and drive a narrative against Hillary Clinton, and millions of GOP voters amplified it. Now, that superpower is gone.

Even Fox News is showing the strain of covering for him. Of course, they still can’t risk hosting him live on their air because they’re terrified of the pending Smartmatic lawsuits and stung from the 800M dollar Dominion Voting Systems settlement.

The MAGA media ecosystem, from Fox to bottom-feeder weirdos like the Gateway Pundit, has seen cataclysmic drop-offs in their view counts online. Some of this is due to changes in the Facebook algorithm, but it goes beyond Mark Zuckerberg spinning the dials behind the scenes. Reasoned and principled conservative argumentation may be boring to some, but replacing it with Catturd and boomer MAGA memes might have been a mistake.

After nearly a decade of breathless excuse-making for Trump and assertions about Democrats that routinely included treason, corruption, pedophilia, and global conspiracies to force us to all eat bugs, the bit is tired. When the Rapture never comes, the flock gets restless.

Finally, Trump is like the drunken uncle at the party; he’s increasingly embarrassing, even for many Republicans. They’re tired of making excuses, tired of explaining away the crazy, and tired of defending the indefensible. He’ll always have his base, but many in that base repel the more moderate Republicans and independents. The Dobbs decision and Trump’s boasting over ending Roe v. Wade have cut deeper into the more affluent demos in the GOP than he cares to admit. 

Yeah, The Lincoln Project RULEZ!

in my case.. I have a thorough dislike of each; Trump and Ketchup. However, I get your point. I would think ( I know.. this is what you get for thinking) that after saying the same thing thousands of times that they would tire of it and find something else to whine/complain about. The American pastime is no longer baseball.. it is whining and complaining.

I feel like there's definitely a joke in there somewhere...

Yes, mark's called religion the opiate of the masses, but he hadn't met CNN and fox yet.

It is either actual politics or identity politics right now. We can talk about The threat Trump and Biden Represent to democracy, or we can talk about transgender and gay issues, or we can talk about the threat that Trump and Biden are to transgender issues. But that's about it.

Occasionally you might throw in a little bit about the war in Ukraine but honestly that's just begging for trouble.

I was trying to come up something witty but it was eluding so thought best to put it away. a bit of a side note, first time in canada was in 2002. We went to Cranbrook, BC. First time that I ever saw ketchup and dill pickle flavored potato chips. I was taken aback at the thought of ketchup-flavored anything but were not that bad in all fairness.

Gad but what a sheltered life you've led :)  Did you at least try all dressed?

Cranbrook is great  but an unusual first destination for people. :)

My ex-in laws lived in Sandpoint, ID and so the nearest Canadian town to drive to was Cranbrook. No, we just bought them from a gas station and had some. Not that bad but also not that great. Since then, have been to Victoria for a few hours and Vancouver for a few minutes.

There is nothing of GREATER IMPORTANCE right now than who becomes the next POTUS.

Not with the mess Trump is promising to make of government. We already have an accurate idea of all the ethical norms he is willing to DESTROY from his last term. And the steroids he is planning to put that on NEXT.

Ketchup is indeed "Ok".  Ish.  But our all dressed apperently isnt' available down your way and it's got some ketchup in it but it's much better. I think basically they had a bunch of flavourings left over and just mixed them all up and said "Maybe they'll eat this?"  and tried it and people loved it. That's why it's "all dressed", because "shit-mix flavour" isn't really appealing from a marketing perspective.  Tasty tho :)

Sigh - every single election is the most important election in history. No seriously, this time we really mean it! I know we said that last time but this time, wow. Throw away those history books, nothing else is going to matter after this. You'll be able to tell your grandchildren that you voted in the most Important election in our history.

I mean, elections do matter. Elections are important. But the outcome of this is not going to be earth-shattering. Either trump will get in and hilarity will ensue but the country will actually probably be run halfway decently, we're Biden will get in and the country's finances will probably suffer as a result and things won't be 100% great but the country will survive for 4 years.

In any case, no matter who wins, the one thing we can guarantee is that it was stolen.

Yeah  not really how his dem brain filter works. 

As far as he's ocncerned you just posted the following articles:

A Trump campaign official said the Texas swing brought in at least $15 million IN NEW FINES AND LAWSUITS

Underreported fact: President @realDonaldTrump raised more in small dollar donations than Obama in 2012 BECAUSE HE"S A PICKPOCKET AND WORKED THE CROWD!

And in April, for the first time, Trump also enjoyed the lead in monthly fundraising COMPARED TO HITLER. 

So he's fine. 

You forgot the FOS lies line and you should have worked a personal attack or two in there.

Lol...you Libbies. You're such nasty pansies.

"Trump is a meanie and doesn't play by our rules."

That's right pansie. Trump plays by OUR rules. Rules that put the American people above all else. I know that rubs your globalist leanings the wrong way but...

Tough.

These retards are riddled with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

A symptom of living in an uneducated blue state.

Precisely. The narrative of "this election is the most important ever" feels a lot like "the sky is falling" from Chicken Little.  They are important. I heard the same thing during the Obama years and yet life was just about the same from day to day.

Or simply being bored. When I was on another forum (liberalforum.org), I heard the exact same thing from Conservatives. Day in, day out.. the same tired line about how the world was ending if HRC was elected in 2016. Here's a hint.. go out and do something instead of spending hours whining and complaining on internet forums.
