by the way, the video of the complete phone call is paywalled at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, so I was unable to get it — but Bob Cesca played audio of the whole thing on his podcast this morning. it really is heart-wrenching to hear. https://www.bobcesca.com/the-bob-cesca-show-2-1-24/

Biden is one of the most empathetic and sympathetic person on planet earth. He is genuine and a real statesman when it comes to this. Now think of Trump throwing paper towels at storm victims and Melania standing by in stilettos, not wanting to touch anyone or anything.

It should be shocking that 10 people want to vote for trump, a number that includes his family. I think the number of orange Nazi supporters is small but a right wing owned media is as guilty as the J6 deadly seditionist terrorists in promoting their lies.

Biden is sharing pain with other parents who are sharing pain. It is a comfort to him to reach out, because he is in touch with his own pain too. He knows how much pain there is in seeing the bright lives ahead of them snuffed out as they served their/our country with honor! Biden is the man!

The heartless mango menace whose chronic post anal drip expels regularly from two orifices, could care less about any loss of life. Between the million plus deaths from the Covid pandemic and his usual I could give a shit about any military fatalities, empathy doesn't exist in that very disturbed mind of his. Biden constantly shows his genuine sympathetic feelings to the families who have suffered from these tragic events, which is something we'll never see from the wannabe dick tater.

It's just bizarre he gets so many people to vote for him. WTF is going on?!?

Expand full comment

Because I think our eyes are open wide now to the fact that 'Merica has a lot more stupid and uncaring people than we thought. Or maybe the numbers are just more now as compared with the past. When I grew up, this Trump cult would have been way in the minority and laughed at by mainstream people. Not anymore. I also think the election of a black president, followed by a loudmouth racist gave the GO sign to the covert racists we had in America. Now they have been given the green light by Trump and his followers to display Nazi and white power signs. They also feel free to physically harm those different than they are and to publicly say whatever they feel like to them. Trump didn't create them. They were already there. But before Trump, it is was socially unacceptable to behave like this for the most part. Trump is the result of these people - they have been among us for quite awhile.

I felt every word Joe spoke. My daughter was murdered in 2015 in an act of domestic violence.

I went in and smelled her clothes and I still cry. In his words and the sound of his voice comforted me.

He also understood that this is something you never get over the loss of a child but there are days I reminisce about when we were here or there together it will make me feel her presence.

At the very top of Orange Jesus's hate machine output was this report, "When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true. Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed." Don't forget he makes it all good by wrapping himself in a flag.

Doesn’t the jerk see where his comments will lead? With his comment that military graveyards are filled with suckers and losers, his base will never sign up for the military or understand what kind of love and patriotism enlisted men are giving to their country.

And another comment he made, about the validity of vaccinations for Covid. His base stopped getting vaccinated and many died.

He’s comments, create his own losses over and over and over again. There are many examples.

Or maybe he’s trying to weaken our military on purpose. For his buddy, Putin. Did he instruct Tommy Tubes?

Trump is the master of projection. Take what he says for the most part and realize he's talking about himself. He's the loser. He is a coward - no male in his family has been in the military. His dad was a piece of work as are his oldest 2 sons. This is the Trump way. It's a classless family who will long be remembered for being traitors, grifters and downright criminals. He makes fun of women's appearances. I'm sure he has a mirror. I can not think of one redeeming quality that this man has. He is America's embarrassment.

With Hillary it was too late before the media admitted and most people caught on to the "crooked" label as being the greatest projection ever perpetrated on the American public. The media loved it, The times, CNN, Nbc all especially loved How Fox was able to lead them all into the never ending chant of crooked Hillary and the band played on and here we are today.

True. Master manipulation about distorting the facts and making people question everything they heard. Once the seed is planted, it's hard to erase from people's memories. The ultimate manipulation is always playing the victim. Elections are rigged (only though when Republicans lose), there is this Deep State trying to control our lives. Just constant projection from the GOP. They are talking about themselves, not others. Sad that so many have been vulnerable to cult manipulation. And that's exactly what it is. No rational thinking person can vote for Trump and dismiss what he's done and wants to do. They'd even drink the Koolaid if he asked them to.

I agree and I hope we're wrong. Possibly a national crisis like 911 could bring us together but if Covid didn't, which was made political, nothing will except war. Even that might make us more divided. Putin, China and Iran have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. To groom and brainwash American's dumbest, most hateful, uneducated and violent people has brought our once beautiful country to the brink.

You need to go back to the 70's. Pat Buchanan, John Birch Society and the rise of the Evangelicals in this country. That's where it started. That's over 50 years ago. I will say one thing about this group - they are tenacious. It took them 50 years to overturn Roe vs Wade, but they got what they wanted. The Tea Party was just the first real overt sign of them publicly emerging in the main stream. Trump tested the waters with his Obama birth certificate conspiracy theory. It went over, so he continued. What if people laughed him off the TV over it? The signs were there. People just didn't pay enough attention or didn't realize what was really going on. I'm one of them. I'm a boomer and grew up thinking my country would always be there for me and even though there were political disagreement in the 50's/60's, America would always be a country I would be proud of and we would never have the governmental problems that other countries had (being overthrown). Sadly, I am no longer naive. The gravest threat to our country as we know it, comes from within.

Deborah- Great paragraph, & describes what happened with me. I was a feminist, pro ERA, pro abortion, stopped wearing a bra, all those women’s lib things. I was just getting divorced from a cheating husband & had a 4 yr old. I remained divorced for 25 yrs because I was so determined to make my own decisions & not be bossed around by a man. I got busy working, raising my kid, & putting myself through nursing school & totally forgot about politics until about 2007.

I never worried about Roe being thrown out, I hadn’t noticed the creeping restrictions to access chipping away at it.

Now, I’m very involved. I’m angry at myself & others of my generation for being complacent, I’m angry at our elected officials for not aggressively standing up to the bad guys & allowing them to slowly garner power & take rights away from the rest of us, & I’m really angry with the current scotus trampling over precedents & smashing progress right & left.

I very much hope that I can live long enough to see the return of all the rights & protections restored that the current corrupted, rotted-soul justices have killed.
