Those look like some shitty quality steaks.
They were widely reviled and like most Trump endeavors, soon went belly up, an utter failure.

They're the best steaks, and you can only buy them from the store everyone knows as the best place to buy steak: The Sharper Image.
Sharper Image may have gone belly up too, but they pioneered one of the better scams of modern time, the so-called "lifestyle brand."

Mirror of video:
















Some background info:

This video was filmed in The Villages, Florida, a gigantic retirement community that is almost completely red and full of avid Trump supporters. The guy with the anti-Trump golf cart is named Ed McGinty. He likes to rile up Trump supporters by sitting in a golf cart plastered with anti-Trump messages, an act that has resulted in someone threatening him.

Bonus point, I found a couple of articles written by elderly people in The Villages's newspaper bitching about McGinty and socialism.

Highlights of the video:

  • The lady doesn't seem to think that Trump admitting to "grabbing women by the pussy" is a sex crime and defends it by saying it was on a "hot mike" (because apparently it's okay to say that if you don't know you're being recorded)
  • Woman walks up to Ed, Ed stands up. Lady: "DON'T GET IN MY FACE!"
  • The woman says "I will defend Trump until the day I die!" which is just really sad, lol.
  • The woman says "I'm going to send this to Donald Trump!" This is hilarious because Trump's supporters actually think Trump is their friend and would give even the slightest shit about them and their thoughts. Actually, Trump seems thin-skinned enough to respond to this so maybe this Trump supporter has a point.
  • The woman thinks that you shouldn't be allowed to insult the President, which is rich considering how a lot of Trump supporters despised Obama and insulted him constantly. Also fuck "respecting the office of the President," the President is not above reproach and should be insulted and criticized if they fuck up.

Of course it's Florida. Imagine the sheer brown nosing to defend a politician "until the day you die". She's TES in person.

These people are in their 60's. I repeat, these people are in their fucking SIXTIES acting like grade school kids on the side of the fucking road. If I ever get like this when I'm 60 you all have my permission to shoot me in the face.

I don't get the unwavering support. You can still support him, and admit he's done some shitty things. It's madness.
Well the alternative is, to paraphrase a famous comedian, people who want you dead, your children castrated, and they think it's funny. Even if baby boomers can't articulate why they fear those people (mainly for cultural reasons) they still have that visceral urge for self-preservation and they act out to defend themselves in the few socially-allowable ways they have left.

The poles are not the globe. The choice is not "Trump or those viewpoints that are 100% diametrically-opposed to Trump". The choice is "Trump or anyone else". This is like those people who think that unless you're a fanatical tankie who insists that the DPRK is actually a wonderful place and Stalin did nothing wrong, you're a running dog for dystopian corporate wage-slavery and sweatshop labor who thinks for-profit organ harvesting is based.

Trump isn't even that far right. With very minor tweaking of his platform and omitting some racist dog whistles he could have run as a Democrat. If he were anyone but Trump he'd be called a cuckservative and mocked for sucking Israeli cock 24/7, but because he shitposted and retweeted some memes a bunch of suckers thought he was based and redpilled or some shit.

Those people aren't the poles though. They're embedded in the campaigns of guys like Bernie and even Hillary back in 2016 and people see them post on social media about those things all the time. I mean, fuck, Desmond is Amazing had an advert in Time's Square and the candidates the Left puts forward broadly approve.

Compared to mass support for troons and reparations Trump looks like a life raft to cling to.

Vladmir Putin had a salient point: most of the time it doesn't matter who's US President, policy barely changes.

If this is true, arguably the only worthwhile criterion for a President in the last couple of decades is how much hilarity they deliver by angering people you don't like. By that metric, Trump is easily the best for many people.

is that heresy? I think that's heresy
My friend's Boomer dad proudly declared yesterday that Donald Trump is God and is perfect in every way. Not even a joke. He was 100% serious. He also claims to be an atheist while simultaneously claiming to be a Catholic because he went to Catholic school and therefore must be an expert in Catholic theology, or so he thinks. The guy has some severe cognitive dissonance issues. Whenever he asked for proof of something we said that was critical of Trump, my friend and I would offer him literal video proof of Trump's own words and all he would do was look away, throw his hands up in the air, and say "I don't care! I don't want to see it!" There most definitely is a really bizarre personality cult that has formed around Trump.

Trump doesn't really do much of anything and just gets pushed around by his handlers. This makes it easy for his little cult to project whatever they want onto him. Trump do good thing? Strong God Emperor. Trump do bad thing? Deep state interference.

e.g., Trump's recent foray into health care. I am sure Trump has very strong views on independent midlevels or alternatively just signed whatever the hell was in front of him. Managing to piss off literally every doctor in the US.
