High School Dropout Thoroughly Convinced He Is Smarter Than Harvard Professor

Gadsden, AL – Robert Hodge, a busboy/dishwasher at a Denny’s in Northeastern Alabama, took to Twitter today to call former Harvard Professor and current Senator Elizabeth Warren a “stupid fucking libtard cunt that’s should get a refund on her JD degree.”

“Yeah, I let that liberal Liawatha bitch have it,” said Hodge during a smoke break during the dinner rush. “I’m just so sick of these people with educations and degrees acting like they know it all. It’s just a piece of paper ya know?”

He also took to both Twitter and Facebook to call Democrat candidates things such “DemoRats,” “Feminazis” and “Snowflakes.” He has managed to troll many opponents of current Senatorial Candidate Roy Moore by calling them “Blue-Pilled Sheeple.”

“All these coastal elites think they’re so smart,” he said. “But it’s just that they’re so brainwashed by the mainstream media. I get my news from the real media. I watch and read stuff from Breitbart, Fox News, and Infowars. Those are the only sources telling people the truth!”

Despite never attaining at High School Diploma or GED, Hodge is completely convinced he could do a better job running the country than some of our  former leaders.

“Barack Obama was nothing but a lazy, stupid ni- black guy,” he said. “Well, I shouldn’t say that. He was pretty smart for a black guy, but he’s still dumb compared to me.”

“I’m just glad we finally got a president with some sense. One who’s going to lower taxes, ban Muslims and execute queers.”

When it was pointed out that President Trump hasn’t been able to do any of these things despite his party controlling all three branches of the federal government, he shouted “Fake News” before reentering the Denny’s to clean up chocolate milk spilled by a toddler.

Words vs Actions

I’ve often heard ‘actions speak louder than words,’ but like with many other things in life I’m finding this does not extend to the world of politics. In politics it doesn’t matter much what you do so much as how you speak. If you aren’t able to accomplish your goals there are plenty of scapegoats, and then you can just go right back on your speaking tour.

 

I didn’t notice this until Donald Trump succeeded Barack Obama. The thing that really brought it to my attention was the way both men deal with terrorism and the ongoing Syrian conflict. From what I can tell, the only difference in their approaches is that while Obama would quietly execute drone strikes and remain low key about American involvement in the area, Trump is full of bluster and bombast about “extreme vetting” and “radical Islamic terrorism.”

 

From what I can tell Trump’s method of referring to ISIS as “radical Islamic terrorists” hasn’t been any more effective than the drone warfare conducted by the Obama administration. And I’m not sure where the idea that we are just letting refugees into our country like through a revolving door came from. They were already subject to extreme vetting. It would be ridiculous to not look into the background of people we invite into our country and I haven’t heard anyone say we shouldn’t be cautious. The only difference in the approaches has to do with the rhetoric, which now makes us seem like total assholes.

 

Something I’d like to see more from Republicans is pragmatism. Maybe I just haven’t come across bloggers and pundits with critical thinking skills, but it’s hard to take the Trump cheerleaders seriously. I couldn’t take Obama cheerleaders seriously. His expansion of drone warfare, the massive surveillance of the NSA and his avoidance of releasing documents under the Freedom of Information act were a few of his policies I didn’t completely agree with, but I don’t regret voting for him.

 

But Obama never went on television and lambasted the media, the intelligence community and anyone who disagreed with him. Most of his actions aligned with his words and any policies I disagree with he had good reasons for pursuing. Trump is actively seeking to destroy the working-class voters who put him in office. He’s championing a healthcare bill that will charge more for less coverage, rolling back environmental and labor protections and working on tax reform that I’m sure will disproportionately benefit the upper 1 percent.

 

The crazy thing is how many people still support him because of what he says. And will continue to support him no matter what he does.

 

It’s important to look at what politicians do, especially the ones we’re prone to agree with. We can all agree that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information with her private email server. I’ll admit that was a massive mistake on her part though I supported her in the last election. However, it’s important to note I didn’t support the guy who appointed someone working for the Turkish government to the National Security Council.

 

Whose actions were more detrimental?

 

Things That Make You Go Hmmm… 2

With the recent terrorist attack in England, the focus from the Trump administration has been on the controversial travel ban. The Supreme Tangerine has taken to Twitter try and make the case. Unfortunately, he isn’t making much headway into anything but showing us just what bad taste looks like.*

But there are a few things about this proposed travel ban I find a little odd. Wasn’t it supposed to be for 90 days so they could ‘review vetting procedures’? It’s now been about 120 days; what the hell have they been doing? I heard a news report saying the judges blocking of the executive order must have extended to the review process, but you’d think they could get something done.

Of course, we all know what Donald Trump has been doing:

I’m not sure how this is supposed to protect us from terrorism. I guess he must know something I don’t.

And my other question is why didn’t Trump just lie about having a credible threat from one of the countries on the ban? This is a man who has lied about the size of his inauguration crowd, electoral victory and penis on national television; you’d think if it was that damn important he’d just make something up.

I’m one of those pinko-commie-liberal snowflake types, but if I were to hear there was a credible threat from one of these countries I’d probably be OK with something like this. If it was to serve some purpose (as the recent ban on laptop computers on airplanes did) it would make sense, but I have the impression that a few racists just sat around a table and asked: “Which of these Muslim countries don’t give us any money?”

I’m a First Amendment nut. Freedom of religion is one of the most important things in the world to me. I find any law that discriminates based on religion completely reprehensible and un-American, but if there’s a credible threat from Somalia we should exercise caution and protect ourselves.

This doesn’t have a damn thing to do with national security. It’s all about posturing.

I can’t believe more people don’t see it. I don’t believe Donald Trump wants the world to be a safe place. I think he loves these terrorist attacks. You know why? He wants everyone to be scared and then tell them he’s the only one who can protect them.

His message from the beginning has been ‘Trust me. I’ll protect you.’

And you know what? That’s the biggest lie he’s ever told.
