    Years ago, there was a poster that would periodically pop up on the IMDb boards and post a bunch of really bizarre paranoid delusions in a few hours, then vanish again. The story around the boards was that she was a mental patient, and she’d slip away from her institution for a while and post, then they’d take her back.

    I’m reminded of her every time I read one of Trump’s rants, because they sound exactly the same.

      It always almost reads like the rant of a toddler, certain points, like when he goes Y’ALL GO TO HELL! ( Edit: I’m phrasing here ) I think he screams out in real life all the words he writes in capitals, while writing the rant.

      Even the way he lists all the “bad people” throughout his rant, it’s all in all pretty infantile, but also petty and fucking creepy. It’s so unreal.

        When he was in office, I had a chrome extension that changed the font of all his tweets to look like a toddler wrote them in crayons. Reading it that way made the font match the message and helped soften the existential crisis.

        It’s also a horrid run on sentence. I’m no English teacher, but I want to grab a red pen and start correcting the whole thing. It might save time to just cross the entire thing out and write a big F across Trump’s forehead. It can stand for both Fail and Fascist!

          I was an English TA for 3 semesters, and the urge to unsheathe and wield the Red Pen of Pedantry was strong during his term. Ultimately, it was going to be a never-ending battle, so I just gave up.

        It’s interesting the parallels between Trump and Alex Jones. Both now have their empires on the chopping block for things they’ve said, and both are behaving in much the same way.

      what’s really telling is just how much hate this dude has in his heart, and by all accounts it doesn’t sound like he’s ever really been fucked over.

      That’s the way Trump sees the world. There are only two kinds of people: People who support him and his enemies.

      If you support him, you’re the greatest person in the world. But if you oppose him even once in a minor way, you’re on the enemies list.

    The reporting that was saddest to me was that Trump was said to be attacking his political enemies, and then naming prosecutors and judges. If Trump didn’t provably break 91 laws, he would not have his 91 charges. Prosecuting crime is a wholly different from political attacks. I expect that from Rs, not Newsweek.

      Just think how many of his crimes haven’t been investigated enough to be indicted for? He commits more crimes before breakfast than most people do over their life. My favourite is, he couldn’t even donate (or was it pay for dues?) to boy scouts without commiting a crime … Cause he paid with charity funds or something similar that wasn’t his money, like $7 in 1989. Billionaire for sure, that $7 would be like us regular folk stealing a hundredth of a penny or something, I didn’t do the math but it’s smaller than his hands anyways.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    He wrote: "Happy Thanksgiving to ALL, including the Racist & Incompetent Attorney General of New York State, Letitia ‘Peekaboo’ James, who has let Murder & Violent Crime FLOURISH, & Businesses FLEE; the Radical Left Trump Hating Judge, a ‘Psycho,’ Arthur Engoron, who Criminally Defrauded the State of New York, & ME, by purposely Valuing my Assets at a ‘tiny’ Fraction of what they are really worth in order to convict me of Fraud before even a Trial, or seeing any PROOF, & used his Politically Biased & Corrupt Campaign Finance Violator, Chief Clerk Alison Greenfield, to sit by his side on the ‘Bench’ & tell him what to do; & Crooked Joe Biden, who has WEAPONIZED his Department of Injustice against his Political Opponent, & allowed our Country to go to HELL; & all of the other Radical Left Lunatics, Communists, Fascists, Marxists, Democrats, & RINOS, who are seriously looking to DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.

    The frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination is facing a civil fraud trial brought against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

    The $250 million lawsuit alleges Trump and executives at his company fraudulently inflated his wealth on his financial statements, which were used to secure loans and insurance.

    A gag order in the case previously prevented Trump from criticizing court officials, but last week a state intermediate appeals court, headed by Judge David Friedman, granted a temporary stay on the order, effectively suspending it due to the “constitutional and statutory rights at issue.”

    Engoron had previously fined Trump $15,000 in total for violating the order twice after commenting about Greenfield, including falsely claiming she was in a relationship with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

    Meanwhile, Trump complained that there was no food left for him at a luncheon for Texas state patrol officers he attended last weekend to celebrate the federal holiday, which began in 1789 under then-President George Washington.

          There’s a very nasty racial slur against black people that starts with “jiga” and ends with “boo.” Many people think that Trump’s use of “peekaboo” in relation to the black Letitia James is a reference to that phrase.

          He has a history of doing this. He has referenced the two black poll workers in Georgia that the MAGA conspiracy theories targeted as “Riggers” in a clear nod to the N word.

          His followers love this kind of stuff. They think they’re being sneaky by “hiding” their racism behind otherwise innocuous words.
