Dear Trump Supporters: He Doesn’t Give a Damn About You

Alright Trump supporters, let’s have a real talk. Do you all really believe Donald Trump gives a damn about you or this country? Do you think if push came to shove and Trump was forced to screw himself over for the best interests of the American people, he’s actually going to do that?

Yeah, I know he tells you that’s what he’s going to do, but he’s also someone who:

  • said he was going to release his taxes
  • said Mexico would pay for his border wall
  • didn’t tell a Gold Star Widow her husband “knew what he signed up for”
  • didn’t have an affair with an adult film star
  • denied saying climate change was a hoax created by the Chinese
  • said he had a plan to make health care “better, cheaper, and cover more Americans”

Shockingly, every single thing I just listed was a blatant lie.

Whether or not you want to believe anything listed above was a lie is irrelevant. The fact remains that nearly everything Trump says is a lie.

But do you all really believe that some insecure, egotistical billionaire raised in a wealthy family who’s bragged about not paying taxes for two decades and has probably never worked an hour of blue collar work in his life really gives a damn about any of you? Well, at least outside of pandering to what you want to hear so that you’ll cheer wildly for him at his rallies so he can use you for his own political benefit.

As Trump supporters, one thing you folks need to realize is that he treats you all like you’re idiots. He relies on your ignorance to propel his success. That’s why he knows he can claim that he’s going to make “bringing American jobs back home” a priority — while most of his company’s products are manufactured overseas.

When he called you all mindless sheep who’d vote for him no matter what, he was right.

For the record, he launched his campaign nearly three years ago and has yet to bring any of his company’s jobs back to U.S. soil despite vilifying companies that outsource labor.

He’s hoping you’ll be too stupid to realize that the tax plan he just signed is going to make him much… much richer despite the fact that he had the gall to claim he wouldn’t benefit from it.

It doesn’t matter if you folks decide that you suddenly don’t care that he lied about something. The fact remains he lied because he was banking on you all being naive enough to either not realize it or simply not care once his lie was exposed.

When he called the monthly jobs reports “fake” and “phony” during his campaign, he knew that was b.s., yet he counted on your ignorance to actually believe that the Obama administration was manipulating these numbers. Then once he was sworn into office, without any explanation as to why the sudden change in attitude (even though any sane person knows why), he instantly began using those very same numbers to brag about himself. He didn’t even try to offer up any explanation as to why numbers he called “fake” were now suddenly “real” or why they seemed nearly identical to the data he said was being fabricated by Obama.

Then again, he didn’t have to, because you, his supporters, never hold him accountable or question him on anything!

Which is exactly what he wants and is counting on.

But the truth is, aside from saying what he feels he needs to say to manipulate you all into continuing to vote for him, he couldn’t give a damn about any of you. Everything he does is about himself, feeding his own ego, and trying to make himself look good. Every decision he makes isn’t based upon what’s in the best interests of the country, it’s based on what he feels will benefit him the most.

If you doubt me, look no further than the situation with Russia.

For the sake of argument, let’s say Trump’s been absolutely honest in that no one from his campaign conspired with any Russians during the 2016 election to help his chances at defeating Hillary Clinton.

That still wouldn’t change the fact that Russia did launch a cyber attack against this country and that intelligence experts are saying the threat is ongoing — and Trump’s not doing a damn thing about it. Furthermore, despite the fact that all U.S. intelligence agencies, as well as our allies, are telling him that Russia is trying to interfere in our democracy, he continues to doubt whether that’s actually true.


Because admitting that Russia hacked the DNC and Clinton’s campaign emails would support the argument made by many that, without Vladimir Putin’s help, even if his campaign didn’t directly collude with any Russians, Trump wouldn’t have likely won.

In other words, he’s willing to put this nation’s security and democracy at risk simply because of his ego and inability to accept that, while he’s still “president,” he might not have been without help from a foreign adversary undermining his political opponent. That would make his victory look weak — thus making him look weak — so therefore he’d rather continue to deny Russia was involved in the cyber attack because of his insecurities.

He’s quite literally putting his own ego before the best interests of the country — all of the country, including his supporters. Knowing that, why would anyone not believe he’d put his own personal interests ahead of the country every single damn time he’s faced with that decision?

Trump supporters, you can ignore everything said in this article. You can call it “fake news” and claim that Trump’s the most honest “president” in history. You can deny Russia helped him get elected and believe every other fictional line of b.s. he’s sold you since the day he launched his campaign.

But that doesn’t change reality or make anything fictional you believe any more true.

Donald Trump is a liar. He’s been a liar his entire life. He’s a con artist and a fraud. He’s cheated on multiple wives, didn’t have much to do with raising his children, and has a long history of sexist, racist, and bigoted comments. He’s a man with a career proving that, time after time again, the only thing he cares about is what’s in his best interests and who he can use for his own benefit.

All he cares about is saying whatever lie he knows you want to hear so that you can keep cheering him on and feeding his ego. He bet on your ignorance and stupidity and won.

At the end of the day he doesn’t give a damn about you, your family, or what’s in the best interests of this country — all Donald Trump cares about is himself.
