#Trumpgrets website compiles regretful Trump voters lamentations for your reading pleasure

#Trumpgrets website compiles regretful Trump voters’ lamentations for your reading pleasure


If you need an invigorating dose of pleasure at the pain and misfortune of others, we at Raw Story’s Voters Remorse desk would like to direct you to #Trumpgrets, a Tumblr site devoted to compiling the delicious salty tears of people who voted for President-elect Donald Trump and already regret it.

Yes, the former reality TV star has not even been voted into office by the Electoral College and already some of his supporters are angry that he’s backing off his more extreme campaign promises like repealing Obamacare on his first day in office, building a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico and rounding up undocumented workers and sending them to their home countries.

A corresponding Twitter campaign has sprung up called #Trumpgrets.

The Onion, from 2010: Biden Receives Lifetime Ban From Dave & Buster's

Biden Receives Lifetime Ban From Dave & Buster's


DALLAS—Following dozens of complaints from waitstaff and numerous incidents of property damage over the past 10 years, representatives from the Dave & Buster's corporation, a bar-restaurant chain offering a wide variety of arcade games, announced today that Vice President Joe Biden has been permanently banned from all 55 locations nationwide.

"We are saddened that such extreme measures had to be taken in regard to the vice president's recent behavior," said Dave & Buster's spokesman David Weldon, adding that posters with Biden's image on them have been distributed to all locations. "However, Mr. Biden has been given many, many chances to act in a responsible and respectful manner while enjoying the great food and fun that Dave & Buster's has to offer. Unfortunately, he has failed to do so time and again."

Though the scope and severity of the ban are unprecedented, Weldon said that several individual Dave & Buster's locations have previously expelled Biden for lengths ranging from six weeks to two years, with the first occurring in Dover, DE in 1990. According to records, Biden visited that location while campaigning for his fourth Senate term, and kicked over a Galaga arcade game after getting into a verbal altercation with a server over a $16 tab.

According to other Dave & Buster's employees, Biden has not historically respected the bans that have been placed on him. After he was barred from the Tempe, AZ location in 2007, the former senator would reportedly do burnouts in the parking lot with his Trans Am while waiting to pick up a waitress employed there at the time, a woman identified only as "Candi."

Photoshop #MAGA UPDATE: Another hideous double chin photo Trump hates. Hilarity ensues.

Donald Trump asked press not to publish unflattering photo, internet has a field day with it (31 Photos)


Look, people are entitled to not want their unfavorable photos out there. Unfortunately, if you’re constantly being paraded on every avenue of media the world has to offer, that request goes right the fuck out the window. Case in point, this photo of The Donald looking like a wet, droopy, double-chinned baked potato. He asked for the press not to release it, but did they listen? Shit no.

Trump's feelings of inadequacy and the impact of his infantile need for approval on our country

Donald Trump lost the vote for president by well over two-and-a-half million votes and counting, and it's driving him out of his mind. Because our odd electoral system gives more weight to voters in small, rural, mostly white states, the loser of this year's popular vote will take the oath of office on January 20th.

The popular vote this year matters more than ever. In an election that was more deeply about values than any in recent memory, it's important that a clear majority of Americans rejected a campaign premised on racist attacks against Mexicans and Muslims and a man with a long history of misogyny. The majority rejected a near-sociopathic celebration of ignorance and the least qualified person ever to become a major party's nominee for president.

Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States, but he's a loser, and he can't stand it. That's why he tweeted a lie about millions of Americans voting fraudulently to give Hillary Clinton the popular-vote victory. It doesn't matter whether he believes that to be true – he needs it to be true. Our thin-skinned baby president-elect hates the idea that millions more people voted for his opponent than for him, so he'll accept whatever made-up facts he needs to make it not so.

The schadenfreude over Trump's feelings of inadequacy is all well and good until you realize the impact his infantile need for approval will have on our country. Make no mistake: Trump isn't a poll reader who will, say, cancel plans to repeal Obamacare just because it turns out the majority of Americans don't want him to. Trump seems more the type to recede into his bubble. He's already back holding the sorts of rallies he misses from the campaign trail, where his strongest supporters wait hours in line to cheer his nonsense. Thursday night he bragged to a surprisingly thin Cincinnati crowd about his victory, which he amusingly characterized as a "landslide."

Lewandowski: Trump rallies "were like rock concerts...We had groupies! Holy shit!"

One audience member called the panel “a goddamn foodfight.”

“(Trump rallies) were like rock concerts,” former Trump manager turned CNN pundit Corey Lewandowski said. “It was something that the people were energized about. We had groupies! Holy shit!”

While Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook spoke, The Beast noted that Lewandowski would fiddle with his phone while others paid attention. When he continued, he bragged even more about the win and Mook glared at him.

“He looked like he wanted to strangle him,” one audience member noted.

Guns N Roses Invited Mexican Fans to Beat a Donald Trump Pinata

Guns N’ Roses Invited Mexican Fans to Beat a Donald Trump Pinata
By Michael Gallucci December 1, 2016 4:25 PM


Guns N’ Roses‘ concert in Mexico City last night included a special guest … sort of. The band brought out a Donald Trump pinata onstage for fans to whack.

The show was the last in the group’s Latin America leg of its Not in This Lifetime Tour, so the band was in a somewhat playful mood. It didn’t hurt that the pinata gave many frustrated Mexican fans the opportunity to smack around one of the most reviled men in that region.

“Let’s bring in some people,” Axl Rose says in a video filmed by fans. “And give them a f—ing stick. I just want you to express yourself, however you feel.” After a fan starts to hit the pinata, Rose says, “He’s got it. Go ahead.”
You can watch the video above.

It’s no surprise Mexican fans were more than eager to beat the hell out of a Trump pinata. One of the president-elect’s biggest campaign points was his construction of a giant wall between Mexico and the United States to prevent illegal immigrants from entering. Trump also promised he would make Mexico pay for the wall.

F*cking buckle your seat belt: Jon Stewart sounds the rallying cry for fighting Trumps agenda

‘F*cking buckle your seat belt’: Jon Stewart sounds the rallying cry for fighting Trump’s agenda


It’s been over a year since “Daily Show” genius Jon Stewart walked away from his war against bullsh*t and as the 2016 Election post-mortems play out, Stewart cut through the noise to talk about the new President-Elect.

“It is odd to be in a position of knowing that the leader of the free world tweeted that you were a p*ssy at 1:30 in the morning,” Stewart said at his latest TimesTalks appearance.


But Stewart wasn’t giving Trump a pass. He said that Trump’s campaign painted Clinton as “an unqualified Secretary of State because the way she handled classified material. His selection for Secretary of State will be David Petraeus, who pled guilty to mishandling classified material. He said she was unqualified because she gave a speech to Goldman Sachs. His Secretary of the Treasury is somebody from Goldman Sachs. We’re in post-accountability.”


“They don’t give a flying f*ck about governance, they care about campaigns and that’s where the fun is for them. That’s devastating,” Stewart confessed. “And not only is it devastating news-wise, it’s devastating to all of us. Because if a campaign is too long, the fault lines between different tribes in our societies solidify. A campaign is 18 months long and you’ve got to choose a side for 18 months and then a disagreement becomes an argument and an argument becomes a fight and a fight becomes a feud and a feud becomes a war.”


Trump's "Victory Lap Tour" reminds me of that one review of Spinal Tap's "Shark Sandwich" album...

Trump ‘Thank-You Tour’ Revives His Campaign Rallies’ Scariest Hits

The crowd chanted “lock her up” at the first mention of Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, even though Trump since the election has backtracked on his pledge to prosecute Clinton for her use of a private email server. He galvanized supporters during the campaign by calling her “Crooked Hillary” and alleging she broke the law, even through the FBI cleared her.

“I’m going to discuss our action plan to make America great again,” Trump said on Thursday. “Although we did have a lot of fun fighting Hillary, right?”

Trump showed at the rally that he prefers campaigning to governing. Since the election, he has reportedly turned away classified intelligence briefings and has resumed tweeting conspiracy theories and late-night ramblings. He has also said he wants to continue holding rallies as president.

Trump on Thursday trotted out a few lies ― as was his style at campaign events. He falsely suggested terrorists are “pouring into our country” and described a “violent crime wave” in America’s cities.

Trump Treasury pick Mnuchin's company foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman after 27-cent payment error

In Florida, the company foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman after a 27-cent payment error. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo singled out the lender for squeezing Superstorm Sandy victims. Last month, the company’s successor, CIT Bank, was accused of discriminating against minority borrowers.

Two years ago, OneWest filed foreclosure papers on the Lakeland, Florida, home of Ossie Lofton, who had taken a reverse mortgage, a loan that supplies cash to elderly homeowners and doesn’t require monthly payments.

After confusion over insurance coverage, a OneWest subsidiary sent Lofton a bill for $423.30. She sent a check for $423. The bank sent another bill, for 30 cents. Lofton, 90, sent a check for 3 cents. In November 2014, the bank foreclosed.

In October, lawyers at the nonprofit Florida Rural Legal Services contested OneWest’s foreclosure and asked the Polk County Circuit Court for a jury trial.
