So I Confronted A MAGA Cousin From MO On Facebook This Morning

She posted that she was a "huge supporter" in a reply to a post by one of her sisters. My reply to her;

What do you admire most about him? That he called our men in uniform losers, or that he called those that died in battle suckers? Or maybe that he knew back in Feb. that Covid-19 was a serious airborne infectious disease but lied about it, and downplayed it, costing untold 1000's of lives? Or maybe you're a fan of the other thousands of documented lies he's told since the Russians helped him get elected. Is it the early morning bathroom tweets? No, it's gotta be the pussy grabbing! How foolish you look publicly supporting that snake oil salesman.


Crickets for an hour.

37. No, But I Barely Know Her

I'm the oldest in my generation & she's the youngest. She was a baby when I went to college & moved away. She knows a couple of my sisters who stayed in the area a lot better & she really doesn't want to get on their bad side. Normally we all avoid political conversations, but she lives at the Lake of the Ozarks & I think she got some MAGA courage from the bike rally there this weekend.

You won't change her mind, but that's not what's important


It's important that you stopped coddling her and the rest of his supporters, and make it perfectly clear they are lowlife pieces of shit too for supporting him.

14. "know that he's a lowlife piece .."

that's it in a nutshell. They support him precisely because he is a middle finger thrust out at -- the entire world.

Don't try to over-think it. They certainly don't.

During the campaign they proffered a variety of merchandise as the "Goldwater" this or the "Goldwater" that. My father enjoyed telling the "Goldwater sandwich" joke. One of the earliest political references I remember.

48. Surely they do, but as long as he's pwning the libs...

In too many cases, these folks world doesn't seem to extend beyond a few hundred yards beyond the space they currently inhabit. They have no concept of the world beyond their immediate sphere of occupation. The rest of the country and the world be damned as long as they get their way in that little insular bubble they live in. They assume that the rest of the country and world should have that same parochial, bumkin view of the big, wide world we live in as they do. They're scared to death of change and having to expand their horizons to encompass a greater world view beyond themselves.

20. I ask if they get embarrassed over his overt racism.

That puts them on the spot because they can't admit they're racist so they usually say "he's not racist". That leaves to door open to point out things he does that are. It's not hard.

"Name all the black people in his cabinet." "Why is there only one?"

After ignoring a bunch of "pro-life" stuff, it was "4 men died alone" about Benghazi that did it. Rather than type some response about thousands dying alone due to COVID, I clicked the "..." to find some other options.

Sometimes you just have to take a stand.

A couple months ago in a conversation about Trump I told my brother-in-law, a strong Trump supporter and a good Lutheran, that Trump had no love in his heart.
He gave me a shocked look and feel silent.

He hasn't talked politics with me since.

58. Yes...

One he is NOT A POLITICIAN and he actually cares for his country. He isn’t being paid to take on the shit he was left with and has made many many many improvements...the copy and paste was to save my time. Just so ya know.

And no one knew what the Covid was going to do or that it would have the affects it has had. And according to the CDC the numbers are wrong anyway. So many reports that were wrong.

But hey if you want to vote for someone who cannot form a thought or sentence and prefers children over someone who has actually done so much for our country in just a few short years and cleaned up Obama’s and many Democrats mess then go ahead. My vote will be for Trump 100%


I replied;

No, he's not a politician, he's famous for being famous, like a Kardashian without the talent. And for failing businesses, bankruptcies & cheating investors. The tapes were released last week where he said he knew about Covid & was downplaying it. Fox News has confirmed it, & they'e not exactly a "librul" news source.


Then my sister wrote to her;

Wow, I feel a combination of pity and disdain for you right now. Sad.


That was the end of the conversation.

60. You empirically discovered the key: prove that he doesn't care for America, but only himself

Note the defense "he cares for America" (really means he cares for MAGAs). Each of your original arguments in the OP actually makes a very strong case he does NOT care for America. Should just be repeated in that context.

63. He cares about the country?

If he cares so much about serving his country, then why was he a draft dodger during Vietnam? Why does he love dictators who are our enemies? Why did he make so many real estate and money laundering deals with Russian spies. Why were six of his campaign advisors convicted of felonies, and why did they all have close ties with Russian spies? If he cares about his country, why does he constantly lie to it's citizens? If he cares about his country, why has he taken the ACA to court to kick 25 million US citizens off their health care insurance during a health care emergency called COVID-19?
