Former Labor Secretary and political pundit Robert Reich apparently believes that the unteachable can in fact be taught or that the unconvinceable can somehow be convinced. If you agree, then you may want to print out a copy of Reich’s Facebook post and put it in your wallet, so that you have ammunition for your next encounter with a Trumpite. Here are a few jewels from Reich’s collection: “NEXT TIME YOU GET INTO A LITTLE SQUABBLE WITH A TRUMP VOTER, BRING THIS INTO THE CONVERSATION: Reich admonishes before sailing into it:
5. He said he’d surround himself with all the best and smartest people. You bought it. He nominated theocratic loon Mike Pence for Vice President. A white supremacist named Steve Bannon is his most trusted confidant. Dr. Ben Carson, the world’s greatest idiot savant brain surgeon, is in charge of HUD. Russian quisling Rex Tillerson is Secretary of State.”
“6. He said he’d be his own man, beholden to no one. You bought it. He then appointed Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, whose only “qualifications” were the massive amounts of cash she donated to his campaign.
7. He said he would “drain the swamp” of Washington insiders. You bought it. He then admitted that was just a corny slogan he said to fire up the rubes during the rallies, and that he didn’t mean it.
10. He called CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times “fake news” and said they were his enemy. You bought it. He now gets all his information from Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and InfoWars.
11. He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done. You bought it. He took his first vacation after 11 days in office. On the taxpayer’s dime. And went golfing.”
Donald Trump is both the liar-in-chief and the projector-in-chief and anyone who still supports Trump at this stage in the game is irredeemably stupid, let alone deplorable. However, if you’re still up for it and want to actually confront a Trumpite, here is Reich’s complete list. Knock yourself out.
