Hey, remember when people said they support Trump because he is not "politically correct"?

I think it just deserves a mention that you can't write "I'm not politically correct" on checks and expect landlords and grocers to take them in lieu of money because you have no money because you're not getting paid.

I just think that's interesting.

1. Many of the same people who will burn Robert DeNiro's effigy because he's

been "politically incorrect" when talking about the orange scrotum.

2. "Politically correct" seems to have been an excuse

Too many of Trump’s supporters said that because they wanted to let out their own prejudices and Trump gave them permission.

This presidency has exposed so many fundamental ills within our country. Perhaps we’ll have an epiphany as a nation and progress to a better place.

Or else...

3. Don't forget the ones who'd "rather be a Russian than a Democrat"

I guess they have a way to pay for their beer with rubles?

4. Why Don't Those 2 Slobs Just Wear...

...a dirty tee-shirt that says, in big letters, "I'm a Moron!"

6. The words on the shirts may be...

...different from what you suggested, but the interpretation is already, "I'm a moron."

They are free to emigrate any time. I suspect they wouldn't like it there.

10. There's a very fine line between "Saying it like it is" and just being a plain old Asshole.

 

Personally, I think the trend towards verbally abusive "reality" show hosts greased the skids towards Trump. IMO, they are all Assholes, at least on camera. I don't understand why anyone would find that entertaining. Maybe voyeurism, fantasizing about being able to be rude to other people in ways they don't dare? I could do with less Asshole chefs, bar "experts", "Dr"s, talent show judges, etc.

12. True, but we got to remember... "Saying it like it is" isn't putting food on the table
