Jimmy Kimmel Perfectly Sums Up The Recent Trump Drama

For all of us who passingly keep up with flood of daily current affairs, Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue painfully summed up Donald Trump’s career as the the 45th President of the United States.

In the monologue, Jimmy brought up something very interesting where he openly wondered whether Trump voters would admit their error in judgement and reassess their feelings about the President based on his overall performance while in office.

Obviously it’s anyone’s guess as how actual Trump voters will react, but I have a feeling that studies in human psychology offers a hint. Of course we can’t pin it on just one source, but I think it’s safe to say that the ideas behind commitment and consistency will carry a substantial amount of weight in forcing people to remain staunch Trump supporters despite all the dis-confirming evidence. With that said, here’s how Wikipedia defines “Commitment and Consistency”:

If people commit, orally or in writing, to an idea or goal, they are more likely to honor that commitment because of establishing that idea or goal as being congruent with their self-image. Even if the original incentive or motivation is removed after they have already agreed, they will continue to honor the agreement. Cialdini notes Chinese brainwashing of American prisoners of war to rewrite their self-image and gain automatic unenforced compliance. Another example is children being made to repeat the Pledge of Allegiance each morning.

Maintaining objectivity is one of the most difficult, if not impossible, tasks so for those of you rolling your eyes right now, we completely understand your position! Regardless of where you stand, sound off below with your thoughts!

    I along with all the kids in school said the Pledge of Allegiance every morning and I’m not brainwashed one bit. I grew up on military posts for much of my youth and enjoyed the benefits of that environment in many ways like all the others did too. Like the posts having many swimming pools that we could use all summer long, there being free rec. halls for the kids too, free again, great libraries, movies for 25 cents for kids & 50 cents for adults were common too. As to loving my country, yes I do! With all the problems and faults she’s still the greatest country in the world, bar none.

      * Presidents went from defeating nazis to defending them.
      * Insane income inequality (not even in the top 100 of countries).
      * Highest amount and percentage of prisoners in the world.
      * Pseudo-democracy with only two parties that has only elected millionaire Presidents since WW2.
      * Has killed more people abroad than all other countries combined in this century.

      • Curvefan+

        Please post a video of President Trump defending Nazis. There are none because that has never happened. FAKE NEWS.

        • Amari

          He equated neo-nazis who shouted “Jews will not replace us” to the people protesting against them, said that there were fine people among them and that the side whose people were murdered and who didn’t trap black people in a church for hours were also violent. David Duke and others have thanked Trump for defending them.

          You have to wonder, how low will you Trumpies sink? Even a soulless husk like Cruz understood this was bad. Even Fox isn’t defending him. By taking Trump’s side you shit on the 400.000 Americans who died fighting the nazis and their allies. You’re a fucking disgrace.

          • Curvefan+

            I will assure you I’m not a disgrace to anyone. You on the other hand have shown your lack of ability to carry on an intelligent conversation without resorting to name calling That is liberal 101 and a sign of a lack of intelligence and facts to back up your opinions. I won’t lower myself to engage in name calling.

            In typical liberal fashion, the video played Ad nausium did show some unsavory people that President Trump as well as most others condemned. However, there were many other people there peacefully protesting the taking down of a historical statue. Many feel as I do that once the statues are gone, the alt-left will target monuments and then books. Now that is straight out of the Nazi playbook and has been copied by liberals.

            The attempted suppression of freedom of speech by the left is appalling. Even the very liberal ACLU came out against the left’s violence. This protest would have been an “accomplish nothing” protest if the left had just ignored the protesters. Instead, alt-left organizations funded by the Clinton Foundation and George Soros hired thugs to come in and attack the protesters. This escalated the violence and was totally preventable.

            One should ask themselves why did law enforcement allow the protests to get so out of hand that death was predictable? The answer is they were ordered to stand down so as to take away the narrative of two recent huge wins for the Trump Presidency. Russia has turned into a “nothing burger” and the left and the media look silly. The DNC hack was an inside job. The second was the North Korea situation which was created by Bill Clinton but ignored by Bush and Obama. President Trump used his negotiating skills to get a 15-0 vote to impose severe economic sanctions that would have crippled the economy of North Korea. The real victory however was the pressure put on China that resulted in their forcing North Korea to shut down the aggression and stop the threats.

          • Amari

            Shouting FAKE NEWS doesn’t equal intelligent discussion.

            I’m not a Liberal, i hate Liberals.

            Lol @ “historical statue”. You mean a statue of a racist who fought for slavery and had slaves whipped for escaping. The only good thing Lee did was get lots of greycoats killed with his moronic tactics.

            There is no such thing as the alt left. I get that neo-nazis try to rebrand themselves as alt right. We’re not neo-nazis so we don’t need that.

            Lol @ freezepeach. Go and fuck yourself you pathetic neo-nazi enabler. And of course the ACLU didn’t say that, but we knew that already. And lmao @ not counterprotesting, who is the Liberal now? Oh god, and the conspiracy theories, you’re a full-blown trumptard aren’t you? Drinking the Alex Jones koolaid 24/7.

            And you even think Russia is over and that North Korea was a win? Your oversized oompa loompa President just proved what they’ve been telling their population for years. Wow. Just, wow. I hope your Führer takes away your healthcare… for the sake of the genepool. ಠ_ಠ

          • edith prickley

            so why do u hate liberals?

          • Amari

            Because i’m leftist.

          • Spanglylovesheels

            Sometimes it sounds like you have taken the higher moral ground… I agree the name calling never looks good on anyone…buut then you spit out the name Clinton Foundation as funding and blame only Bill Clinton for the North Korea situation. Your vitriolic hatred of the word Clinton undercuts your rationality and makes me discount your statements.

            I agree that a rush to tear down monuments is wrong. But I also realize now that some of these monuments placed in prominent positions send a message that tacitly approves of what these men fought for: slavery. I like the idea that many of these monuments might be better placed in museums that try to tell a complete narrative than in town squares and near city halls and courts. As I have been told numerous times in life and now believe, “perception is reality”. This is also unfortunately why this chasm that has opened up recently in this country is not likely to be bridged very easily. Your perception of events and mine and apparently Amari’s are very different.

            And I too would rather just have more celebrity Tits and Ass and less political talk.

            There is a lot that could be learned by reading this article from Herman Cain.

            https://www.hermancain.com/yes-media-the-alt-left-is-as-bad-as-the-alt

            Yes, media, the alt-left is as bad as the alt-right . . . and here’s why you don’t see it

          • edith prickley

            hell no the alt-left is not nearly as bad. and you think an article by sexual harasser herman cain is objective? lol

          • Swifty

            Yes, the alt left is worse because they have the media covering for them and the media you are viewing and reading won’t cover the crap they are actually doing. Wake up.

      • Swifty

        Yes, Obama got us here. Trump is trying to get the country back on course after too many years of America last.

  • Jahrgos

    Sure, I’ll sound off with my thoughts. I don’t even care for Trump but I care even less about having to see political bs everywhere. It’s so tiresome. I come here for the ladies and rest of the bastards and picking on them, not politicians. Ya I’m sure everything would be spectacular right now with Clinton as prez. Ok sure. They all suck.

    • edith prickley

      so don’t click on the article, dumbass.

      • Jahrgos

        He asked for comments, I gave mine. This has never been a political post site until few recent posts. I’ve been on here for years, back when it was bastardly, and it’s always been about pics, not politics. If a site changes directions, then I’m a dumbass for commenting on posts that are non-typical of the site. To me dumbasses are those getting into political debates on a babe posting site, knowing that neither person will ever change their mind/view. Would appear many of the regulars here agree that politics isn’t wanted here. Dumbass.

  • Curvefan+

    So does anybody have a suggestion of where to go as this site is determined to keep going to the political posts and thus I’m read to leave?

  • John Connor

    so now this place is also going to get political? Don’t start with Marxism Moe, focus on showing nice tits and asses

    • Drew Mcfriend

      I totally agree! So sick of every group and subgroup complaining that they have it worse than every other group. You can’t even watch a stupid football game anymore.

    • edith prickley

      hey moron, disapproving of Trump does not make one communist.

      • Swifty

        Just a fascist socialist.

  • Oh FFS, just stick to babe pictures, it doesn’t require much critical thinking. Bookmark deleted, will check back in a few weeks to see if the site has gone back to its ‘core competency’ or is still embarrassing itself with political shit.

    • Curvefan+

      I second that motion. I’m out for a while also.

  • Dwayne Hicks

    This site was so much better when it was “The Bastardly”, and now it’s taken another turn for the worse with politics. Wow, Trump bashing…. so edgy! You’re really going out on a limb, guys! … Fuck Cultural Marxism. Fuck intersectionality. Fuck white guilt. Fuck gender politics. Fuck modern feminism. Fuck the msm. Fuck hollywood. Fuck antifa.
    Fuck the sheep and zombies… which includes you.
    Just keep thinking exactly what the msm tells you to think, you silly fucking fools.

    • Amari

      > Calls people edgy.
      > Uses neo-nazi terminology.

      Fuck off back to stormfront, that’s where you crybabies belong.

      • Dwayne Hicks

        “Neo-nazi terminology”? Are you fucking insane? Just because you don’t understand the word doesn’t mean it was coined by “nazis” you silly twit. Which terminology is neo-nazi, genius?

        • Amari

          Cultural Marxism is a neo-nazi term which is a reference to the nazi term ‘Cultural Bolshevism’. It’s used by people like Buchanan and Breivik.

          • Dwayne Hicks

            I feel like I’m talking to a child. Cultural Marxism has nothing to do with Nazis, and “Cultural Bolshevism” has nothing to with Cultural Marxism. You’re a fucking kook. Basically what you’re saying boils down to “everybody who disagrees with me is a Nazi”. It’s because of ignorance like yours that Trump won. You just don’t get it.

          • Amari

            Breivik, Stormfront, Daily Stormer… what was that river in Egypt called again?

          • Dwayne Hicks

            You got nothing, kook. Except for name calling. nothing.

    HBO and Vice put out an amazing video documenting what occurred over last weekend for those who haven’t seen it.
    .
    My thoughts, which will likely be unpopular, is that somehow, the antifa made martyrs of nazis, who are insanely evil with an abhorrent ideology, again see video. I was surprised with the independents I asked that also believed the same. Effin nazis and white supremacists, groups that nearly everyone hates will use this weekend as a recruitment video. They were backed by the ACLU who got a permit through a federal judge legally by the march organizer who btw also organized Occupy Wall Street and was once an Obama supporter (long story, but think about that one).

    It made me think of the movie Minority Report. Should we imprison anyone we know is going to commit a crime, even if they haven’t done it yet? Is being a big asshole deemed by everyone enough? Should we just jail any white supremacist and waste resources trying to rehab them as if this is some mental illness? Almost no one supports nazis. The argument is about supporting free speech and due process. Today, somehow, I as a moderate Democrat minority am a nazi sympathizer.

    Antifa came loaded to bear. If you’ve seen pics, we’re talking concrete coke cans, urine/feces balloons, pepper spray, even homemade mini flamethrowers. They willingly attacked nazis who open carry assault rifles on multiple days. It takes 2 to tango. I have no idea how only 1 person died. How dangerous is antifa? They were able to assemble a 20k rally against free speech today in Boston against 50 people because they wanted to battle white supremacists, half were Bernie supporters attempting to have a dialogue about hey free speech. Even after the rally, Antifa still went about throwing stuff, general mayhem, and antagonizing the cops.

    Heather Heyer did die though, quite tragically and wrongly. She walked with her friends within BLM. A group that held the banner of: Against White Supremacy, Screw the klan, the confederacy, and the cops. Equating cops with the klan! The cops who were told to stand by and allow the groups to skirmish and who also just watched as the driver left. Don’t believe me? See video. So much so that many are calling for a review of the governor and city officials.

    Trump is also not absolved of his actions. He and his team genuinely see white nationalists as an alternative version of BLM. ‘Obama never had to condemn Black Lives Matter; why should Trump have to condemn the radicals who like him?’ is an absolutely wrong position to have. The “fine people” thing. Super dumb. Why is Trump making it a both sides issue? Because it is a both sides issue. Until both sides come together, change will continue to occur how it always does, glacially across decades. That’s pretty slow for the I need immediate satisfaction 24/7 media clickbait age.

    I would vote for the death penalty for the driver I will not name. Toss him.

    • Amari

      The antifa came loaded to bear? The neonazis had torches, shields, helmets, bulletproof vests and assault rifles.

      • Gabbo

        Antifa is begging for a real fight. Shields, helmets, and vest are all defensive items. Not offensive. And for all those rifles they had, not a single shot was fired the entire weekend, even though they were an outmanned force, in an inferior position, and attacked first all 3 days. Have you even considered why are they antagonizing and attacking people with assault rifles?

        Antifa is just an alliance of convenience. They’ve always land/power grabbed with millions dying as soon as the initial fight is won.

        • Amari

          The neonazis came looking for a fight. They attacked 100% unarmed peaceful protestors. A shield isn’t a “defensive item” when you charge with a group and use them to bash people aside.

          There are a whole bunch of clergy who have stated that antifa saved their lives when they stepped in and stopped the neonazis charging them. And when they freed them from a church where they had been trapped for hours while neonazis were chanting racist slogans outside carrying torches.

          You’re seriously going to defend these neonazi terrorists because you love Trump so much?

          • Gabbo

            Where did I absolve Trump or nazis? If it was up to me, I’d have all the nazis killed, but I can’t because hey that’s the law and people should have due process. Which is ironic, because that is essentially what BLM proclaims to fight for. To be treated equally and fairly. Whether you like it or not, I certainly don’t, the Supreme Court said these guys have rights too.

            I can’t believe you got snowed by that ThinkProgress piece. Half a dozen reporters in that church, yet they no video or pictures. You really think they wouldn’t get in if they really wanted to get in? And the whole Anitfa saved them? The clergy purposely blocked the nazis from the park that a federal court AND the ACLU said they could LEGALLY go to and have a rally. The same ACLU that is Chloe’s #1 charity. Even if you are morally right, you still have to follow laws, but apparently maybe not.

            As a moderate Democrat, telling you right now, this is why we’re losing other moderates and independents to the Republicans, even with how bad Trump is doing at the helm. You choose identity politics over the law. And Antifa has broken the law everywhere they’ve shown up. They are now calling for nationwide riots on Nov 4th to prove the public mandate to oust Trump. Ugh.

          • Swifty

            See, the problem is that you’ve listened to the mainstream media to believe only one side was armed. They both were armed. They both (or all) are hate groups. They are all leftist fascists who want it their way.

  • Gabbo

    PS -here’s a video from 5 years ago. Everyone should be worried.

  • WeeItsNookies

    Whoa. Did moe just get political? Mad disappointing. Show us the only important things in life. Tits, ass and feet. Nothing else matters.

    Heil Trump. The one true patriot.
