Talking to a Trumpster (Now in the Dumpster)

found online by Raymond

From (O)CT(O)PUS at The Swash Zone:

Yesterday online, I encountered a former Trump voter who was clearly unhappy. Unhappy with what, he didn’t say. Rather, he tried to turn tables and put me on the defensive:

“They are not the monsters you think they are, and until you realize that fact, you will be unable to appeal to their better natures,” he said.

Realize what? I have no need to explain myself or appeal to his better nature. Whether this Trumpster is a troll, a mole, or an asshole is beside the point. There is a penalty flag on the field, a personal foul. How ironic!

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
