Disappointment with Trump is growing among his supporters because he’s too liberal

This is the kind of insane crap people come up with when they want to writeabout Trump but have run out of things to say. 

The quality of American sperm is plummeting

This is the most disgusting, crazy story ever. It’s Brazil, what can you do.

    “Haley failed to explain how stripping funds from U.N. aid organizations that need more funding than they currently have to prevent famine in these countries demonstrates the administration’s supposed extreme concern. Her answer would be laughable if the situation weren’t so serious. The conceit that the U.S. is the “moral conscience of the world” at a time when the U.S. is actively supporting a military campaign that has taken Yemen to the brink of famine is absurd and offensive.”

    In Trump Country, Shock at Trump Budget Cuts, but Still Loyalty

    One of a genre but here’s what’s interesting about the framing: 1)Nobody is directly asking these people “What do you value more than the program that is putting you in a well paying manufacturing job instead of bagging groceries/saved you and your son from an abusive relationship/saved your life after you were gang raped, or the job which you say you’ll ‘sit at home and die’ without?” I want to hear what they say in response to that instead of pretending they are all dumb naive idiots who were “mislead” or leaving readers to fill in the blanks. If you apply for actual “welfare” you know how to do some kind of rudimentary research. Commit some journalism instead of some itch scratching exercise. Who does this dance serve?

    2)Where are the articles about the small business owners, well off people etc who voted for Trump? Median Trump voter income is 70k. Why not interview some accountants on Staten Island?

      Exactly. The idiotic narrative that Trump is the choice of the working poor is so strong yet completely baseless. I asked the people I know who voted for Trump how they feel about the proposed budget. They love it. All they care about is paying less taxes. None of these people can even remotely be described as anything but very comfortable.

  4. Bill aims to block Israeli aid money from terrorists’ families

    Yesh Atid MK Elazar Stern moves to deduct NIS 1.1 billion the Palestinian Authority uses to care for the families of convicted terrorists from the money transferred to the PA from Israel; ‘ It’s a real temptation to murder Jews, and it is our duty to stop this madness immediately,’ says Stern.
