Making America….I’m sorry what?

A Trumper decided to create a post about why he supports Trump and will vote for him again after failing to convince me that although The Donald might not be the most morally ethical man in the world at least he delivers on his campaign promises. This was his list of all the “great” things Big D has done for this country over the last 500 days;

Appoints a Conservative Justice to the SCOTUS- This was hard one. A judge died and the Republicans stole the appointment from President Obama and presented it, gift wrapped to the dumb ass in chief. A mangy, three-legged dog with one eye could have delivered on this campaign promise.

Keep Guantanamo Bay detention camp open- The average U.S. citizen has no idea what Guantanamo is. It is a U.S. military prison in Cuba where “terrorist” are kept in violation of international law and basic decency at a cost of tens of millions of dollars each year. You don’t know what “we” are doing to these prisoners and that is just the way the sadistic “I would bring back waterboarding, and I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding” General Bone-spurs likes it. What would Jesus do? My guess is if He came back and stood in the middle of Times Square proclaiming the destruction of the world Trump would send the brown man to Guantanamo.

Move the US Embassy to Jerusalem- Donald had to do this for the Evangelicals. If he didn’t where would Jesus go when He returns? There isn’t a Trump Hotel there to accommodate him. I can promise you, Jesus isn’t concerned about where the Embassy is located. He is however very concerned about how the Palestine people are being treated.

Cancel the Paris Climate Agreement- Why not? There is no such thing as global warming which is why Trump wants to bring back coal, pagers, typewriters, fax machines….

Withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership- The Deplorables will certainly thank Big Don for this one when that $5.00 flannel shirt at Wal-Mart zooms to $50.00. The fun part about his delivering on this campaign promise is that he didn’t have a back-up plan. He scratched his ass one morning and thought, yup another thing President Obama fixed that I can break.

Saved the Carrier plant in Indiana- Ask the 560 workers that have lost their jobs at this plant, to date, plus the 800 others at supporting companies how this photo-op has worked out for them so far.

Create a 10% RePatriation Tax- This wasn’t just a Band-aid on a much bigger issue, it was your Mom putting Peroxide on your boo-boo and blowing on it for 15 seconds. What Trump allowed his “buddies” to do was sneak some cash back in the U.S. at a reduced rate so it could be distributed to shareholders or used to buy back stock. This “promises made, promises delivered” didn’t put a dime in average Joe Deplorable’s pocket.

Reverse Obama’s 2016 Gun Executive Order- North Park Elementary School, Freeman High School, Marshall County High School, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Santa Fe High School……

Slash Federal Regulations- See Paris Climate Agreement, there is no such thing as global warming. Big banks are our friends. We don’t need vast areas of wilderness.

Create a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying for Foreign Governments- Now this one is funny, I mean real funny, very funny, like, not even close to being true funny…

Take the fight to ISIS- And what has ISIS done? Moved the fight to Europe. Have you ever wondered why the European leaders hate Trump so much? Here is your answer.

Steel Tariffs on China Imports- Harley Davidson thanks you. Just kidding, another Trump photo-op gone bad. Whose steel do you think Trump used to build all those skyscrapers? Come on, you know the answer. The same folks who made his red ties.

Lower unemployment- Let’s all say this together “Thank you President Obama”.

Encourage corporations to come back to the U.S.- While also encouraging bright foreign students to stay the hell out. This one will bite us in the ass for generations to come.

Then he listed the campaign promises Trump is still working on;

  1. Building the southern wall
  2. Deporting criminal illegal immigrants
  3. Fighting the Opioid crisis
  4. Diplomatic talks with North Korea
  5. Repealing Obamacare
  6. Removing Gun free zones from schools and military bases

So much winning. I am not sure how much more winning this country can stand or how many more kids will have to die because of it!

  1. The “greatest” thing trump has done is to get just about every Tom, Dick, Harry…..and Sally involved in civics 101. That could be good or bad. Mid-terms will tell. If Dems don’t sweep out the whore house, then you and I have lost the America we love.

  2. Absolutely brilliant point-by-point takedown. The Deplorables don’t have a leg out of four to stand on.

    I can not help but see the emergence of Pol Pot, Hitler, Mussolini, Genghis Khan and Klaus Barbie in the attitudes and spoken thoughts of the great orange one and his minions. I also can not help thinking “I wonder if THIS is what the German people thought upon the rise of the third reich? How could this possibly be happening? We are a democratic republic (just as Germany was) and yet, how can this be happening?”
    Please tell me we are better than this.

    BRAVO! Excellent rebuttal! 👏👏 *loud and sustained applause* 👏👏

    P.S. I admire your “reserve.” I have a hunch it took considerable self-control.
