Bill Maher tells Liberals that they are wasting their time trying to win over Trump supporters with facts.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

“Trump supporters aren’t changing their minds because the problem isn’t in the mind. It’s lower. It’s emotional,” Maher said. “He could have Ann Frank’s skeleton in his closet. They’d all vote for him again.” 

Asking why, Maher walked through the cultural crisis many of the undervalued white voters face that Trump managed to harness. “I think it’s a gut feeling that the world has changed and they don’t like it,” he said. “Trump is going to change it back to the way it was.” 

Speaking occasionally in a thick southern accent, Maher railed against “damn Mexicans” flooding baseball fields like “the parking lot at Home Depot.” He was furious about two boys kissing on the kiss-cam. “And did I mention Bruce Jenner has tits now?” 

“I ain’t no racist, but why does American need to have a black Santa Claus?” Maher asked. “I think I speak for most liberals when I say, I don’t care about black Santa. I don’t think it’s going to make the Little Drummer Boy start cutting himself. But to Trump voters, making Santa black is unthinkable. It’d be like making Jesus Middle Eastern.”

Not only was that pretty damn funny, but it was also pretty damn true.

And I think is what really frustrates those of us whose thinking is reality based.

In my mind if Russia is working hard to get a candidate elected, that disqualifies them out of hand.

And if a candidate is caught on tape talking about grabbing pussies, that is a non-starter.

But to the Trump supporters those are either forgivable sins, or bullshit made up by the "liberal media."

Stupid is stupid, and it is apparently impervious to change.

So in response we just need to flood the upcoming elections with smart, liberal, forward thinking candidates, and push these paint chip eaters back to the fringe where they belong.

    "But to the Trump supporters those are either forgivable sins"

    But ONLY if the candidate is a rich old white guy with the letter (R) after his name.

    I have a GOP sister who claims to be Christian and think Obama was 'worse than Jimmy Carter.' She fails to see that Carter actually lived his Christianity and still does, and that Trump is about as Christian as Obama's dogs. But she's clueless. She thinks N. Korea is testing nukes because of OBAMA's weak policies. Then she whines that Obama blamed Bush for 8 years!! Never took responsibility for a damn thing! And set about ruining the USA with his uppity attitude!
    These people are batshit crazy.

      I will see your sister and raise you both of my parents, half of my siblings, and an unhappy number of in-laws. You can really exhaust neutral topics quickly with these people.

      It's all Jesus this and Jesus that with these professed Christians, but every one of them would freak out and call 911 if ol' Middle-eastern Jesus materialized in their midst.

      Once upon a time I respected their opinions. It makes me feel stupid now.

      Sympathies to those with family members like this! Slightly OT, but I recently became acquainted with a friend's sister (as our houseguest). She was so full of bile and hatred towards everyone- the Obamas, the FBI, her own family for every perceived and imagined slight, it was scary.

      Anyway, as I was bringing in fresh towels, just happened to notice the huge number of pill bottles on the dresser. Heavy tranquilizers, sleep meds and a medication used for "restless leg syndrome". Googling that one brought up the warning that it could drastically increase paranoia in those who had a tendency to exhibit that.

      Long story, but I can't help wondering how many Trump voters are affected by bad interactions with medications- not to mention possible mental effects of prescription pain pill addiction.

      I miss President Obama so much! He did one Hell of a job for all of us! Trump is showing us what a potus should NOT be! Thank God we know the difference and find Trump bat shit nuts!

    5. Anonymous8:35 PM

      Was she able to afford all those meds due to Obama Care? Ha, how ironic would that be.

    6. Anonymous8:54 PM

      I can't really comment on her prescription drug use but restless leg syndrome really is a thing. There's no need to put quotes around it and it can be treated with benzodiazepines.

      It seems all of them was programed for years watching Fox NO news, the most trusted fair and balanced station in the world. I wonder how the thousands of lawsuits now involving fox and don are weighing in on their mental state of despair and brainless grey matter.

  6. That is exactly what you have to do. You have to flood the polling places in those targeted areas and states with enough voters that will vote against Trump and his ilk.

    You are NOT going to change any of their minds. Not even after he takes away their healthcare, taxes them into poverty and still doesn't bring those jobs back. They are never going to change.

    You are just going to have to find enough voters that will vote the opposite.

    Something the DCCC is NOT doing.

    About a year ago I was bored so I wandered over to the piss pond, this person name january and guess was going back in forth with each other. It seems like Guess knew the rules over there cause he tip toed real carefully as to not offend anyone, he bend over backwards to be respectful, but most importantly FACTUAL, but january wanted no parts of these truths, I wish I could remember what Guess was saying, but they were the TRUTH AND FACTS and your head had to be bury in the sand not to know these things, I mean you can slap these people in the face with the truth they just want to believe the lies, SAD

      Polar Bear Papa and Theresa AK used to be staunch followers of the C4P.

      They finally woke up and now hate Palin and Trump.They are all in for Cruz over at the Right Scoop.Of coarse they just let their worship transfer to another con man Cruz. These people never learn but it is interesting to see the tide turn.

      When Palin went for Trump she lost a lot of followers all that remain are her cult and even Right Scoop calls them that.

    we have a mentally ill president on our hands when is the press going to unleash the hounds? When are the Rebublicans going to admit it before Trump starts WW3.

      If there is a war w/North Korea the blame will go to Trump and Republicans.

      Trump is agitating the Hell out of them and I honestly don't blame North Korea for countering the way they have to this point.

      Everything was fine until Trump took office and now things are a fucking mess! Trump is not representing America in good form at all! He's a bully and an agitator pure and simple!

  9. Anonymous7:11 PM

    What people -- outside of Republicans --- don't understand about elections is that you can win them, not by winning more voters, but by keeping voters away, and I'm not talking about using policies to keep black people from voting, messaging and positioning candidates in a way that discourages some people from voting. That's why all they ever do is campaign negatively. Because all that stuff discourages people from voting.

    All this so called President does is divide people and demand total loyalty. He feeds on anger and lies.

    He hates the press, he hates Obama because he can't come close to President Obama's intellect or the respect he got from other world leaders. All he knows is gold toilets, paid for wives who follow behind him like a second class citizen to feed his ego.

    He is an old fat ass with ridiculous hair and a fake tan. I bet at this point viagra wont work anymore[ there doe's come a point when it wont] He is inciting hate all the time. This is not what a leader does, but then again he has no leader qualities. He is a bloated baffoon.

  11. Anonymous7:52 PM

    Agree. I don't even engage with them because quite frankly they are too stupid to even deserve my acknowledgement.

    I have family members back in the South that I'll never speak to again and it all began when Obama was elected and my parents told me that Uncle or Aunt "so and so" called him a nigger and I'm like, well, those assholes are dead to me for sure.

    I have no Republican friends and no Republican relatives that I recognize.

    Life is too short to spend time with assholes.

    Anger is a powerful thing it can have the same power as love.One is destructive and one not.

    Trump tapped into all the anger that was pent up from all the red necks who saw their world collapsing . They did not want to accept gays, they had kids who had kids out of wedlock and that was ok as long as their kids were not "gay" . Thank Palin for being the first in political circles to make uneducated white trash feel they finally had a hero. Suddenly they could say "Yeah my kid ain't married but Palin's daughter ain't either and look at 'em now they is famous!"

    Not realizing that Palin's kids never were on welfare, never suffered for money.

    Yet somehow being an uneducated idiot slut is ok.

    I'm a member of a resistance group in Cleveland (although I commute there from blood-red rural Ohio). The man running this group is a former county commissioner. He has said *exactly* the same thing. It's a waste of time to try to change these peoples' minds.

    They are brainwashed cultists. Beyond reach of reason or alteration. Better to spend your energy elsewhere.

    It is true and sad. But we must leave those friends and family alone in their empty world. If we cannot help them and they will not listen or turn the channel to help themselves then let them be. Ignore them. Wash you hand of them. So sad to watch them fall into the isolated mental state of illusion and derangement. Alt news has warped their minds and it is now controlled.

    Gerrymandering and voter suppression better get addressed and fixed or progressive votes will not count no matter how many of them there are of them.

    It is a rotten cancer at the base of America's democracy.
    Obama understands this and says it is his first priority.

    1. Anonymous10:53 PM

      Obama is going to be pretty busy giving $400k+ speeches from here on out. Of course he will play the part of activist ex-president a little bit for the suckers. But it is pretty much steak and lobster for years to come.

    I know some of these people...
    I have lunch with them, sometimes.
    They believe in Trump.
    But then, they're devout (sanctimonious) Christians and believe all the silliness in the Bible as fact (talking snake, walking on water, virgin birth, loaves and fishes, etc.)
    They BELIEVE Barack Obama is a Muslim that was born in Kenya.
    They believe that Hillary Clinton should be locked up because she's a horrible criminal and is guilty of every crime she's been accused of for the past thirty years.
    They honestly believe that Benny Hinn can heal cancer with Faith.

    They read Glenn Beck's books and believe them. They listen to Hannity and Limbaugh and think those guys are really SMART!
    These people that I know on a day-to-day basis believe psychics are REAL.

    They DON'T believe in evolution or global warming. Those are hoaxes.

    I know these people...
    Mahar's right: they're not going to change their minds.

    Facts do not matter.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
