Trump's 'Fake Poll' Doesn't Let Americans Say Anything Negative About His White House

It has already drawn some smirks, snarks and accusations of bias from Twitter users, because of its first question: “How would you rate President Trump’s first year in office (2017)?” The only answers offered are: “Great,” “Good,” “Okay” or “Other.”

 

For the second question, “How would you rate President Obama’s first year in office (2009)?” there is one more option: “Poor.”

 

There’s another element of the poll that has some cranky and suspicious: respondents must submit identifying information, including their names and email addresses, raising concerns that the details will be raided for marketing purposes.

The site’s fine print below the form notes that, “by providing your phone number, you are consenting to receive calls and texts, including autodialed and automated calls and texts, to that number from TMAGAC and its participating committees.”

 

.. it's impossible to “disprove.” And who can argue with that?

Sounds about right. Our fragile little boy in chief.

If they laugh at you because you're different, laugh at them because they're all the same.

I remember when Obama stood in silence and watched as Iranian

protesters begging for freedom were slaughtered in the streets...

Not sure what that has to do with this poll or Trump's fragile ego, but okay.

Sometimes it's best to just call a spade a spade and acknowledge what is right in front of your face instead of trying to deflect. They guy can't take criticism. Period.

The US was far from silent but what would you have prefered Obama to have done invade Iran, bomb Tehran ?  And what does that have to do with this phony ass poll ?

 

Mark my words in a few weeks Dotard will be bragging about the results of this poll and his new 98% approval rating and his ignorant supporters will lap it up.

Supporters you say?
 
How about co-conspirators?
 
Among the reasons I've heard for people to support Donald Trump range from an elevated respect for authority to what ever will bring about Armageddon quickest not to mention economic advantage (aka: personal wealth increased under his regime) to social advantage that some like white nationalists and Alt-right leader Richard Spencer think will accrue.
 
Considering those who believe in authoritarian forms of government are the natural enemies of those who promote democratic forms, one might say they are conspiring with this administration to destroy democratic institutions and are happy about the progress in that direction.
 
Those who hope for the rapid arrival of the end times (apocalypse) are over-joyed at the decision to establish Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as that act is one that they believe is a perquisite for the return of Jesus and would do anything to achieve that end.
 
Those like Richard Spenser and other white nationalists are elated at the increased respectability of their fascist views and bigotry given them by this administration.
 
But the most dangerous co-conspirators are those who hope to take the win fall from the tax law to contribute large portions of this new largess to buy the election of those congressional candidates that they hope will forever bury the notion of government of the people, by the people and for the people.  They will benefit in so many ways including the thwarting of progress and the institutionalization of their rent seeking behaviors that establish them as the new lords and barons of what will become a new nobility based on inherited wealth.
 
Among the leaders are those like the Koch Brothers, whose similarity in interest to Vladimir Putin revolves around the oil-based energy economies, hope to stop renewable energy developments and, so what if their gaining additional wealth results in massive disruption and death due to climate change.  Their whole purpose is to thwart the popular political will to change to renewable energy.
 
The bottom line is that what is happening is a crime against mankind; a horrendous crime that will result in the death of billions and the stratification of civilization on a model of society that was rejected by the enlightenment.
 
While perfection will elude us all forever, there is a qualitative difference between what is progress and devolution. I refuse to believe people are so stupid they can't tell the difference once they recognize that we are all in this together.
 
After all, the genius of democracy is that it makes us all responsible for each other whether we like it or not.

Anyone that sees people's faces in his bowel movements should not be criticizing what other people do with their spare time.

In Iran, President Trump sides with those seeking freedom from the totalitarian regime.

 

Barack Obama sided with the totalitarian regime.

Y'all really should stop with the idea that people are melting down or have no lives because they recognize the absurdity in some of the things that President says and does. Might be time to toughen up a little bit.

I think we all know you guys wouldn't be silent if it were Obama doing and saying these things. Don't be a hypocrite.

Uhh huh.   Silent only because we wouldn't have been able to get a word in edgeways between all your adoration and worship of the Muslim.


Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".

 

 

I guess you haven't been to Detroit recently?  Or, Newark or East St.Louis or Gary, IN, or Stockton, CA?

 

You know, those bastions of liberal Democrat government that have been so successful in attracting wealthy, educated leaders and businesspeople.  Progressive people,  who have uplifted the poorer of their brethren, so their city can be that bright example of how well Socialism works.

Where did you lift that?  Richard Spencer or David Duke ... or are you  claiming that level of lying ignorance as all your own.

Lift?

 

Coming from the plagiarizer-in-chief, that's rich.
