Apparently Ford and Fiat were planning to make their changes as far as a year in advance of their announcement. Of course Trump takes credit, cause he was elected about a year ago.

Can confirm on the Fiat side of things: they announced they were moving Grand Cherokee production from Toledo well before Trump was elected. The city freaked out and offered them a bunch of incentives to stay, and they ultimately announced LAST YEAR they were keeping the Wrangler at the Toledo plant and adding in a new truck there.

Almost as bad as Romney baldly lying that Fiat Chrysler was trying to move all Jeep production from Toledo to China, except he got called out on that one.

The down side of having conservative friends on Facebook, you are exposed to dreck that contains comments like this:

Hey Streep. You get paid to entertain me. You are no better than a trained seal act. Your only job is to amuse me. That's why you exist. Now shut up and do what your told

So the new Trumpster line is that Donald Trump was not specifically mocking that guys disability, but that he supposedly uses the same hand gestures to mock everyone. Which of course is a total lie.

It's a good thing I just have to read this shit because if someone said that to me in person I would reflexively punch them in the face. I can't even describe how angry this shit makes me. How did we get to a place where being a middle school bully is cool? Why is there so much contempt for the fucking disabled of all people? And on top of that they try and lie and cover up what anyone with two eyes knows is true.

Johnson has also identified himself with the white nationalist alt-right movement. “This election was the first one where I realized I'm a post-libertarian and probable member of the #AltRight,” he wrote on Facebook in March of 2016.

Beyond his current news site GotNews, Johnson also co-founded WeSearchr, a site where members fund “bounties” for answering allegedly newsworthy questions. WeSearchr’s current Editor’s Choice section includes a DNA test on civil rights and writer Shaun King to “see how black he really is;” an expired bounty to hunt for “Satanic pedo tunnels” under DC pizza parlors; and a request to expose alleged infidelity by South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, in retaliation for negative comments about Donald Trump.

People who consider politics to be like a sporting event are literally the worst.

That was one of the most moronic attacks people said about Clinton during the campaign.

It should also be noted she was appointed as defense.

And not an uncommon attack by the GOP. As it happened here in South Carolina, also, when a Democrat was running against Nikki Haley.

The idea of a public defender is definitely lost on the GOP when they can use it to attack their opponent for doing their fucking job.

But like >50% of Trump voters support deporting all immigrants and or banning Muslims from the United States and I wouldn't keep being friends with people that revealed themselves to have those beliefs.

Yes and as I've said before, fuck THOSE Trump voters.

But unless there's a poll showing that 100% of Trump voters were for the anti-immigrant stuff, I'm not going to write off 100% of Trump voters.

If you've seen one speech he's given this year, you've seen them all. Hope, change, "our best days are still ahead of us" [evidence required], Americans have overcome and are better than this (we a literally not better than this). Just general soft-shoeing of how terrible things are right now and are likely to become.

The time for polite rhetoric is over.
