Going as far as purposely calling the entire Police Brutality movement going on right now "just a bunch of rioters". Do they think these thousands of people, across 12 states, are just one giant hive mind? Everyone in the protests have their own individual end-goal, so to generalize them as "all rioters" seems to have big classist/racist undertones.

Hell even some of my close friends literally see nothing wrong with the borderline Order 66-esque, dystopian, Big Brother-type government response we've been seeing these past few months since Trump has been in office. I've never been one to play the race card, but damn there seems to be a lot of stereotypical white folks across social media trying to defend the current US Gov't.

I find it interesting how the gun-toting, tread on me and get shot, hardheaded, 2nd amendment yelling far Right folks are willing to show their bellies in a time when this country needs a wake up call more than ever. It will be kinda funny to see how these people will last, or even adapt to a tyrannical rule.

I'm not even a Leftist/Rightist, i'd say just let it all burn so we can rebuild CORRECTLY. But obviously our government will never be uprooted and replanted correctly, so we have to live with corruption for the rest of our days.

Trump and Pence give off big time dictator powerplay-anyone-who-opposes-me vibes
Biden is unaware of his surroundings 95% of the time, and seems to be just a plant for a rather short-sighted Harris (who's no better than most republicans mind you) to take over in under 4 years time.

So it's essentially a lose/lose.


I'd much rather have Palpatine then Trump. When Palpatine took civil liberties he made you think you were better off unless you directly apposed him.

It may not be a vaccine but this could be good news regarding COVID.

Donald Trump avoided income taxes for 10 out of 15 years. Why am I not surprised.

Hopefully this is what it takes to convince undecided voters. We know it won't dissuade his supporters, who have professed that they'd vote for him a third time, or refuse to acknowledge any of his wrongdoings. ("Sometimes Trump is a bit boisterous.")

Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.

So he paid more for sex in the past 15 years than he did taxes? Oh my...

You'd think him repeatedly downplaying the severity of the pandemic, even saying it affects virtually nobody in the face of 200,000 Covid deaths would convince them, but here you go.

At this point I think Trump could rape a minor girl and his supporters would say she forced herself on him.

I hate to say it, but he wasn't exactly wrong when he said he could literally shoot somebody on live TV and people would still vote for him.

I paid more taxes than Trump has lmao
Legit, every KoTM hater I have ever seen on social media or interacted with are all the same. They are either these young kids to middle aged adults so detached from anything beyond the Japanese films that they can't enjoy anything that doesn't begin with one of the Toho logos. They're the type that would of had no issues with KoTM if it was a Japanese-made production and think films like Godzilla vs. Monster Zero are the pinnacle of human drama.

I have zero doubts that virtually every politician and/or businessman is finding every little way possible to dodge taxes and keep as much of their money as possible.

You're never voting for a virtuous individual.

You're voting for the person whose policies will do the most good for the country. That one is obvious here.

I'm also voting for the guy who did NOT have a pair of brain aneurysms in the 80s.

I can sum this up for you quicker.

I'd rather vote for the racist, sexist with half of brain than the other guy who may also have half a brain.

I won't sit here and say politicians are bad people that's a debate for another time but Trump is near Hitler levels of bad.

I don't think Trump is racist or sexist, and the 'evidence' is quite contrived.

If Trump is racist/sexist, then Joe Biden is an undeniable pedophile because of all of the footage of him sniffing kids and saying "I love having little kids on my lap"

I say no to Joepedo.
