So my long lost uncle

just told me on FB that I am a total idiot. i posted this
https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/americas/donald-trumps-america/115419803/whys-it-so-hard-for-us-to-say-out-loud-that-trump-has-lost-his-mind?fbclid=IwAR1G8MR6_IWRd7RPeLD7k-7nnqiK-TrCBuG9UA0ZpwAQjUmCIvPDPy6r1-k

Why's it so hard for us to say out loud that Trump has lost his mind?

oh well, win some lose some. I've never met him and only found out (or came to realize) that he existed. My father's been dead for over 50 years. He was 28 when this brother came along (different mother from my dad's). We connected through his older brother on Ancestry.com.

Anyway he's in Bend, OR where my trumploving foxbot brother recently moved to. They should be the ones connecting I guess.

I didn't respond, just deleted his insult. I don't even feel insulted, just resigned.

fuck trump and all republicans.

5. Sorry about that

This uncle hasn't been a part of your life until you recently discovered his existence. You didn't care what he thought all that time you didn't know he existed; feel free to go back to those halcyon days.

8. Forward him the article about the emotional I.Q. study and one about the Dunning-Kruger effect.

Don’t argue with an idiot.

11. i didn't argue,

i deleted his post without comment. if he starts stalking me i will block him. i am over trying to get foxbots to see reality as it is, and have neither the time nor the fortitude to engage in some mutually destructive shitfest.

i mean i post articles like the one he commented on to hopefully get someone to see it who hasn't fully recognized the actual decline and encroaching dementia of an already seriously pathologically impaired person. like the media for instance, not that anyone in the business reads my fb! but you never know. you plant a seed.

10. Loved this from the guy's essay

Actually, let me clarify that: if knowing what they know now about his policies and behaviour, the American people see fit to give Trump another term, those norms and alliances will have been struck dead by their hands, not his.

It takes one idiot to make a fool of himself every day he defaces the Oval Office. It takes tens of millions to elevate him there.


If your uncle can't see the truth of this, you're better off losing contact with him.

12. this is the quote i included with my post:

"Sure, there have been terrible presidents before – corrupt, cruel and boorish ones; mendacious, vain, ignorant ones; racists, misogynists, and warmongers; incompetents and dilettantes – but only Trump embodies each and every one of those qualities with such unbridled ferocity. He disgraced the Oval Office by ever setting foot in there; he has been disgracing himself, and anyone that supports him, every day since."

18. i've never even met this man.

but i had to block the son of one of my best friends. known him since he was born. we don't actually know how he was radicalized, but he was stalking me on fb and i was patiently deleting his responses, until he shit on a thread i made on the anniversary of Sandy Hook. Said it was a hoax. that was it for me.

19. It's sad but we wouldn't have anything to do with those types if we didn't know them.

Thinking Sandy Hook is a hoax is a special kind of crazy in my opinion.

20. this was before Alex Jones was sued

and had to admit publicly that Sandy Hook was no hoax. I wonder how he reacted to that.
