They say Trump will win but we all know on Election Day they will be back to acting like he has no chance.
Will they keep up their grifting after he wins or are they finally going to realise they have achieved nothing with the last 5 years of their lives and rope?
These people all love themselves way too much to kill themselves over politics. Most of them are narcissists using left wing politics to feed their self importance, as well as grift.

Cenk: "Cops don't have a risky job at all"
Me: "I've seen a lot of 9/11 footage that suggests you're wrong buddy, to say nothing for all the instances of officers killed in the line of duty, but okay"
Imagine if Cenk said something like that in the aftermath of 9/11. Goddamn it would've been glorious to see the nationwide yeeting that he would've had to endure.

that outfit looks really really dumb. Is he wearing a tux jacket with a black tshirt?
Yeah, and a fake ass drug dealer satchel so he can look hip and 'urban'. Which is hilarious cause Hassan is the type of dude to scream about the plight of the black and latino folks but I know that bitch made whore would never step foot in the hood. A more autistic better user than me would get all his shit together and start a proper thread. I think he has actual lolcow potential as opposed to just internet famous.

Hasan is a weird dude. For someone who makes a living talking about politics, his ability to debate is dogshit. He uses a number of crutches to dismiss opponents ("Chud!") and then complains about them using dirty tactics later on if he loses or fails to get his point across effectively. Most of the time these "dirty tactics" are just stats or sources of information that refute his point. There's maybe a handful of situations where he was absolutely dealing with a liar in a debate, but he would have you believe it was 90% of the time. Streaming on Twitch and debating his own viewers has just made him worse at it since he frequently bans users who challenge him.

His proximity to porn stars is fucking bizarre. Not sure what's going on there.

Overall I'm not sure there's enough stuff around him to warrant a thread. Unless I'm missing something, he's more or less just relegated to Twitch and a couple of appearances on local TV news broadcasts.

The problem with his premise is he's talking about a possible mythical creature.
What is curious is that even if that was the case, and a lot of people are regretting voting for Trump, what is the point of antagonizing the voters?

I remember not long ago that regardless of which side was flinging shit, the ones being attacked were always the politician or the party. The voters themselves were never part of the talk because no one wants to upset a potential voter, so it was always "the republicans are stupid" and not "the republican voters are stupid".

Sure, the notion that republican voters are stupid rednecks and democrtas voters are pussy hippies is older than dirt, but that was spread by popular word of mouth. Politicians, commentators and such used to leave the voters out of this mess, so no one would, in particular, feel judged by whoever they voted in previous elections, because what counts is the now.

Because they can't comprehend that someone would be convinced to vote for Trump based on the merits of Trump's arguments.

Trump didn't even need arguments when he was the only candidate even pretending to give a shit about the largest swing demographic in the United States, i.e. working class white males. "Progressives" can puke all kinds of nonsense about demographics and destiny, but they're still not going to win without a good chunk of that vote. As Hillary should have learned from her less hatable husband, "it's the economy, stupid." That demographic (and the similar working class Hispanic male voter) care about JOBS.

secularism was a mistake
I wouldn't say that it was a complete mistake. Considering Catholicism has been more or less injected with a good dose of Marxism lately.

It was always the loons that made us look like shit. Always. People like Harold Camping more or less sealed the deal with those who weren't aware that we mocked and even dismissed his ramblings.
