Trump disparages our Constitution: Calls it “an archaic system.”

by Ben Hoffman

On his 100th day in office on Saturday, facing historically low popularity ratings, a succession of intractable foreign crises and multiple investigations of his links with Moscow, Donald Trump reminded the nation that 1 May was Loyalty Day.

The day is a US tradition dating back to the cold war, when it was a bolster to stop May Day becoming a rallying point for socialists and unionised workers, but for an embattled president learning politics on the job it has an added resonance.

In an interview with Fox News to mark the 100-day mark, he declared himself “disappointed” with congressional Republicans, despite his many “great relationships” with them.

He blamed the constitutional checks and balances built in to US governance. “It’s a very rough system,” he said. “It’s an archaic system … It’s really a bad thing for the country.”

Kind of ironic that Trump disparages our Constitution on “Loyalty Day.” He thinks it’s a day to be loyal to him.

by Ben Hoffman

Here are some of Donald Trump’s “accomplishments” in his first 100 days:

  • Has been in constant violation of the U.S. Constitution by using the office of president to benefit his business interests.

  • Had to fire his security advisor Michael Flynn for violating the Constitution.
  • Botched raid on Yemen resulted in needless death of Navy Seal.
  • Only president in history to have SCOTUS nominee approved through nuclear option.
  • Only president in history to have three executive orders ruled unConstitutional during his first 100 days.
  • More to come…

What drives Trump’s policies? It sure as hell isn’t the interests of Americans

by Ben Hoffman

Trump’s main propaganda slogan has been “Make America Great Again,” but apparently, he’s only making things “great” for big money donors. His repeal of Obama’s executive orders have helped the coal, oil, and drug industries. He’s allowing our rivers and lakes to be polluted. He’s allowing more emissions to pollute our air.

In other words, he’s fucking destroying America. Here’s a good article from the NY Times detailing some of the nasty things he’s doing:

The Antifa emblem:

Anti-fascists are making their voices heard. A few Antifa patriots were seen at a recent Colorado Rapids game displaying an Antifa banner:

It’s good to see real Americans fighting back against the alt-right, neo-nazis, or whatever else the deplorable Trump supporters are called.

Stop Fascism: Support Antifa

by Ben Hoffman

Trump supporters are unAmerican assholes. The Antifa (anti-fascists) are the true patriots.

  • Trump is violating the U.S. Constitution by using the office of president to promote his business interests.
  • Trump is not our legitimate president. He would not have won if not for Russia interfering with our election. He is being investigated for colluding with Russia to steal the election.
  • Trump has business ties to Russian oligarchs.
  • Trump lies 74% of the time.
  • Trump had to pay 25 million dollars to settle the Trump University fraud lawsuit.

You can’t simultaneously support Trump and love America.
