Dear Trump Supporters: Yeah, We Told You So


Look, there are still plenty of nightmares to be had over the next 3+ years of Donald Trump being in charge of this nation, but we’ve already seen more than enough to be a little cocky for a moment when telling Trump folks: We told you so. 

We’re not even a month into his administration and this has already been, without a doubt, an absolute disaster.

When we said he was too incompetent to be president — we were right.

Reports indicate that during a call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump didn’t even know what the SMART nuclear treaty was — yet bashed it anyway. This follows up other reports that alleged he:

  • Didn’t know how much power he was giving Steven Bannon when he put him on the National Security Council.
  • Wasn’t aware he would have to hire his own White House staff.
  • Whined about having to live in Washington D.C. — you know, where the White House is.
  • Basically said he would be willing to invade Mexico to get “bad hombres.”
  • Apparently thought African American icon Frederick Douglass was still alive.
  • Allowed his Secretary of State to basically say they’re willing to block China’s access to the disputed islands in the South China Sea, a move that would almost certainly trigger a war.
  • Went on Twitter to whine about Nordstrom dropping his daughter’s clothing line, which is a massive violation of federal ethics.

The list goes on and on. He is, without a doubt, the most incompetent person ever elected to that office.

When we said he’d never make Mexico pay for his wall — we were right

Thus far, the best “plan” Trump has produced to make “Mexico pay for the wall” would equate to a 20 percent tax hike on nearly every American and almost certainly start a trade war. Other than that, he’s already saying that Congress is going to have to find the money to build it and they’ll “make Mexico pay — eventually.”

When we said his talk about “draining the swamp” was a giant scam — we were right. 

Donald Trump filled his cabinet with Washington insiders, top donors, billionaires and Wall Street executives.

Remember when Trump attacked Hillary Clinton for her speeches to Goldman Sachs? Funny, he seems to be quite the fan of the finance company now.

When we said he’d never repeal Obamacare on “Day 1” — we were right

We’re now three weeks into his administration and they’re already saying they’re not even sure if they’ll have a replacement for the law passed by 2018. So much for his “amazing plan” that was going to replace the “disastrous Obamacare.”

When we said he was going to abuse his power for his own personal business interests — we were right

Not only has he not really divested from his business interests like he promised he’d do if elected, but he recently took to Twitter to attack a company for dropping his daughter’s clothing line. Heck, Trump’s pick for secretary of the Army — Wall Street billionaire Vincent Viola — withdrew from that nomination citing the near impossibility of separating his business interests from the position for which he was nominated. In other words, Viola essentially admitted there’s no way for someone like Trump to separate his conflicts of interests.

When we said Trump’s claim he “picks the best people” was a joke — we were right. 

Not only did he go through three campaign managers, but White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been an embarrassment; Kellyanne Conway seems to go out of her way to make some sort of ridiculous gaffe every day, and his administration is filled with people who are constantly leaking information to the press about what an absolute circus Trump’s time in office has been.

When we told you Trump’s incompetence would push us closer to war — we were right

So far all he’s done is attack our allies, go out of his way to provoke China and Iran, and provide ISIS with years worth of recruitment material for new jihadists with his Muslim ban.

When we said he had no plan to fight ISIS — we were right

We’re three weeks in and the only thing he’s really done militarily was order a botched raid where a Navy SEAL died — a raid he wasn’t even in the Situation Room for as it was taking place.

When we said Trump was nothing but a con man, lying to you all by making promises he couldn’t keep and that weren’t realistic — we were right

Sure, it’s still early into his administration, but we’ve already seen ample evidence proving that nearly every major issue he ran on was a complete scam. The Iran nuclear deal is still in place, Obamacare isn’t repealed, he has no way to make Mexico pay for his wall, his administration is filled with many of the people he vilified during his campaign, and the country is less safe now than it’s been in decades.

He played you all for fools; sadly, most of you still refuse to face that reality. As a progressive who spent the entire election warning the country against the dangers of Donald Trump, this will not be the last time I proudly say to those who supported him — we were right

    Feels good to vent, doesn’t it? Too bad it has the effect of pushing away the people we need to get on our side.

    • QB59

      Those people will never “get on our side”. They’d vote for Satan as long as he had and (R) behind his name. As for those who chose to sit this one out, or voted 3rd party or wrote in a candidate because of HRC emails…I hope they suffer immensely for their stupidity. They got what they wanted. Maybe next time they’ll have a clue…or not.

      • I’m rather enjoying watching the repubs get hammered at their various town halls. And I’m rather enjoying watching those nincompoops who voted for the fool get hammered as well. Maybe now they’ll pay effing attention when the next vote comes up, although somehow I think there are a percentage of them beyond hope.

      • QB59

        The question is how big is that percentage, and how old are they? I’ve been waiting for the rabid wingnut old farts to die off, but I’m afraid they’ve spawned a new generation of white supremacist tea baggers.

        I’ve made 104,000 thousand dollars previous year by freelancing from home a­­n­­d I was able to do it by w­o­r­k­i­n­g part-time f­o­r 3+ h /daily. I was following an earning model I found online and I am excited that i made such great money. It’s very user-friendly a­­n­­d I am just so blessed that i discovered this. This is what i do…

      I just laughed at how silly the rant is. I mean, did anyone *really* think he could make Mexico pay for the wall? Or that he would make good on all his promises? Politicians *never* do that, nor do they always do what’s in the best interests of the people. But for some reason, now that it’s Trump, everyone that voted for him was a complete idiot, apparently.

      Looks like left-wingers didn’t learn their lesson in the election at all. Still smug, condescending, using straw men….

      Besides, a good number of Trump voters really only picked him cos they hated him less than Clinton. I just feel bad that someone had to win that election.

  • Brian

    Someone is mad that Trump is keeping more campaign promises three weeks in than Obama did eight years in.

    • Tyrsca

      Drain the swamp – Nope
      Lock her up – Nope
      Build the wall and they will pay for it – Nope
      Release his Taxes – NOPE
      Muslim Ban – Nope – his own words “it’s not a ban.”
      I will divest – Nope
      Most transparent Administration ever – Nope
      Make America Great Again – Nope, we are a worldwide laughing stock.

      Those are the ones you elected him on, how’s he doing on those?

      Lied Daily – Yep

      Which ones do you feel he is actually keeping?

      • Katara c.

        Um, he’s only been in office for like a month.

      • Aaron Johnson

        Brian says he has kept more campaign promises. Which ones? Simple question really.

    • Helen Thompson

      You still won’t look at the facts. The Nitwit’s a liar and a bad one at that. All of you Nitwit followers need to do some research. The reasons for why Obama didn’t get everything done is because of the Republicans. They stopped him at every turn. Also the Nitwit seems to be breaking laws as he goes. It won’t be long before the protesters get through to those in charge and he is impeached. You are probably one of his followers that believes the Bowling Green Massacre really happened. Not! The Washed-up Barbie Doll, Kellyanne Conway, also lies. Funny how easily you can be lead astray. Do some fact checking (if you dare ) and stop believing their lies.

      What is snowflakes? Someone who is not a southerner? Or someone who is not orange?

      • pittipat

        What does being a Southerner have to do with it? Believe it or not, some of us Southerners not only have brains, we use them. Stereotyping of *anyone* is unbecoming. Please don’t do it again.
