    I hadn't thought about it before but that story of Pruitt driving around from hotel to hotel on a "lotion check" mission can't be true. It's just way more effort than can be necessary to accomplish what you want. You have a detail of people who do things for you like running and getting you a 50 gallon drum of that lotion you like on someone else's money. The only possibility of what Pruitt was doing riving between hotels all day is something more wasteful and scandalous than going on a lotion hunt.

    Drain the swamp was Nazi propeganda for WW2. It encouraged citizens to help drain swamps using marijuana or hemp to help tanks get through swamps in Germany. No suprise Trump is using more slogans from fascists.

    3:24 Okay so he clearly seperates rich people and the elites. They are according to his own words not the same. At the same time he has no problem with rich people so what kind of elite is it that he dislikes? Because the only thing I can come up with is him disliking the fact that there are smart people understanding complicated issues and lecturing him if his superficial prejudice are wrong. And the fact that the "mainstream" agrees with these smart people it maybe makes him feel kinda stupid and so he hates them both.

    This is a summary of their "comedy":

    Republicans are shockingly short-sighted. “Let’s focus on making as much money as possible now, and leave the planet shitty for future generations, including our own kids...” I have no problem with making money, mind you, just this way that ends up ruining the world.
    It’s almost like they’re hoping to build their own Elysium and leave the rest of us in whatever shithole this place turns into.

This psycho is on his way to Colorado to get some confections from a deeply religious baker who DOES NOT ejaculate into wedding cakes.

    I need a more hard hitting documentary on how the supposed most powerful, among the most educated nation on planet Earth can elect a village idiot as president of a lemonade stand, let alone president of the entire nation. Where and how did we go wrong? Too much TV and not enough reading clogging our brains? Too much greasy foods clogging our arteries and the bloodflow to said brain? Too blinded and loyal to centuries religious doctorines to think logically and critically? Or is all of this nonsense a price 40% of Americans were willing to pay to retain America's "whiteness" which we know they feel is under imminent threat?

    John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, and anyone closely related to the daily
    show and its producers, are beneficiaries of The Democracy Alliance, the
    premiere dark money network of partisan, left wing billionaires.
    They've been having dinners with them over the years, with no problem.
    Check for yourself, these folks are up to their eyes in corruption- this
    very same Dark Money group funds just as many Superpacs, PR firms,
    Think Tanks, and NGOs as the equally evil Koch Brothers foundation.

      It's basically the equivalent of being qualified for an entry-level position at best. Apparently most geology-related employment expects Masters degrees or better. So nah, he's not a geologist. He has some solid educational background in geology, and all props to him for that because it's a favorite field of mine, but he isn't actually a geologist. It's exactly the kind of half-true claim politicians like him love to make all the time.

    Until now, it never occurred to me that Trump supporters do not *understand* the very phrase itself (yeah, I know, silly me...): they just project their mutual disdain for everything more complicated than banging rocks together onto the phrase. To them, "the swamp" is all the people who understand things _better_ than Mr. The Little Guy. My advice: If you don't want to be called "stupid", then _get an education, stupid_ .
    It is incredible how business magnates can get public support by the very people they exploit by just, well... _exploiting_ the fact that they don't want to _understand_ things, they just want to feel good about themselves and they want someone powerful to reassure them.
