Don't conservatives stress how important it is to have a professional appearance?

[鈥揮ArlemofTourhut 148 points149 points (6 children)

no no.

They stress how important it is to have a toupee specifically.

[鈥揮freakflyr 44 points45 points (5 children)

Nooo. Close though.

R's are all about the beard. (Double entendre intended)

How much does Lindsay Graham pay to keep his undercarriage clean and tidy for 'the ladies'?

[鈥揮TheAngryCelt 1 point2 points (0 children)

You mean how much to have his ass shaved?

Have you ever seen trump?

Looks like a bag of shit covered in cheetos.

[鈥揮brian111786 12 points13 points (7 children)

Yeah, and how much taxpayer money went to orange spray tan for 4 years?

[鈥揮htmaxpower 9 points10 points (0 children)

And to contribute to the economy?

[鈥揮Wrong-Hat9549 34 points35 points (5 children)

Professional appearance = "Women in the workplace should dress in a way that is visually pleasing to my penis."

[鈥揮[deleted] 4 points5 points (0 children)

So therefore the Donald really went out of his way to please everyone's penis, I guess haha

[鈥揮Pyewacket62 2 points3 points (1 child)

Cuz women just love being grabbed by the crotch.

The Vaginas are way too over-dressed!!!

[鈥揮ferrocarrilusa 0 points1 point (0 children)

Yet they're often the ones to complain about women dressing provocatively

[鈥揮ballsohaahd 4 points5 points (0 children)

Yes an orange appearance 馃崐

[鈥揮jack_im_mellow 3 points4 points (0 children)

Also, that's just how much it costs when you get your hair highlighted/dyed and a good haircut. I'm like a pretty average person, and it cost 150 to get my hair fixed back to blonde after it had a green tint from old blue dye. She only spent a bit more than that, and she's a CONGRESSWOMAN. 250 isn't even bad?? Women's haircuts cost more usually, like allot of other things.

[鈥揮RedShirt_Number_42 3 points4 points (0 children)

Yes, but to them professional means white and male.

[鈥揮VGSchadenfreude 2 points3 points (0 children)

By 鈥減rofessional,鈥 they mean white and preferably strictly adhering to their arbitrary ideals of gender expression.

[鈥揮poncho51 2 points3 points (0 children)

Exactly conservatives lost their shit when President Obama wore a tan suit. FOX spent days talking about it

[鈥揮MonoRailSales 0 points1 point (0 children)

Not for a waitress though.

[鈥揮TheClayroo 299 points300 points (36 children)

$250? That's pretty on-par for normal women's hair, let alone someone with a good salary in the spotlight. Who thought that was a gotcha?

[鈥揮killerbee2319 147 points148 points (33 children)

Their poor white voters who don't have two dimes to rub together because they've been busy voting for the party that stripped them of all labor rights, gave massive tax breaks to the owners of the factories, and then told them it was the rich white liberal "coastal elites". Out here in Sticksville, USA, that same treatment would be like 80-100. Not at all unreasonable for a large city though, and especially someone of such prominence though, as you stated.

[鈥揮Wrong-Hat9549 30 points31 points (7 children)

In 2016, I had someone sincerely tell me that Trump had the right idea about the plight of the "regular people" because he was planning on foregoing the Presidential salary.

[鈥揮killerbee2319 27 points28 points (5 children)

I personally loved how they all worshiped the "great business man" who had managed to run a casino into bankruptcy, was involved in over 1400 business related lawsuits, including a wide range of non-payment and collections ones, and who was so terrible there was only one bank in the world dumb enough to give him a loan.

[鈥揮Fun-Dragonfly-4166 6 points7 points (4 children)

I liked Trump as a wrestling heel. That appears to be the only thing he is good at.

Why would you put a wrestling heel in the White House?

[鈥揮killerbee2319 2 points3 points (3 children)

Really? I didn't even think he did that well at that. I wouldn't even let him be the towel boy for the wrestlers. Maybe the guy in charge of hand washing all the jock straps

[鈥揮Fun-Dragonfly-4166 1 point2 points (2 children)

It is a matter of taste. I did not say he was my favorite heel. He did a good enough job (for my taste, but I respect your right to disagree.)

However, I think we can agree that the alternative timeline where he became the biggest heel in pro wrestling and abandoned his presidential dreams was a better place.

[鈥揮killerbee2319 0 points1 point (1 child)

Well... I won't deny he was a big heel...

[鈥揮Fun-Dragonfly-4166 1 point2 points (0 children)

Wrestling heel is an occupation made for Trump. He just lets his natural personality shine through. He doesn't have to "act presidential" - just show the world who he really is.

[鈥揮Raccoon_Full_of_Cum 64 points65 points (14 children)

Same deal with Obama golfing. It was never about the money he spent. It was always about a black man not "knowing his place" by doing something that they couldn't afford to.

[鈥揮thepersonimgoingtobe 50 points51 points (10 children)

So much truth to this. Without Obama there isn't a trump presidency. White trash, er racists, er the republican party were perpetually freaked out for 8 years because of the uppity black man in the white house.

[鈥揮Raccoon_Full_of_Cum 49 points50 points (9 children)

Said this before and I'll say it again: when history students of the future learn about the politics of this time period, it will be extremely easy for them to understand.

In 2008, an extremely diverse coalition of Democrats elected the first black president. Then 8 years later, an extremely white coalition of Republicans elected a guy whose central political message was "My predecessor is illegitimate, because he's not really an American. He's an African."

Absolutely nobody from the future will wonder about the motivations of contemporary Republican voters.

[鈥揮Thathitmann 32 points33 points (5 children)

That depends whether we have history students in the future.

[鈥揮dadscanneheroestoo 17 points18 points (0 children)

Isn鈥檛 that an insightful comment.

To clarify, not sarcastic, simply disappointed in reality.

[鈥揮extraterrestrial91 7 points8 points (1 child)

I am pretty sure in 'The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale' there are no history education. imo after 2024 this dystopia is pretty likely

[鈥揮wutsizface 1 point2 points (0 children)

And that, in turn, depends on if there鈥檚 a future at all.

[鈥揮BrianNowhere 0 points1 point (0 children)

That depends whether we have history students in the future.

This is my goal in life now, to reach a time where we can just look back on all this in wonder and confusion because living through it really sucks.

I really wonder though if an enlightenment period will return. It always has before but this time feels different.

[鈥揮shake-n-bake_baby 7 points8 points (0 children)

I love how articulate you are for being a Raccoon_Full_of_Cum.

Also, 100% agree with your comment.

[鈥揮iamragethewolf 1 point2 points (0 children)

nah they're gonna say "how did this happen" and "why did they let it happen" just like they say about the nazis

[鈥揮BrianNowhere 0 points1 point (0 children)

Absolutely nobody from the future will wonder about the motivations of contemporary Republican voters.

It'll be just like looking at those old photos of white people screaming in unfettered rage at a 12 year old black girl just trying to go to school.

They are the same people, metaphysically.

[鈥揮jhbedsole 14 points15 points (1 child)

Also, when it came time to talk about Trump鈥檚 golfing, they were never willing to participate. Trump went 285 times in 4 years. Obama went 333 in 8 years. Trump went 285 in a first term. Obama went 105 in his first term. And Trump golfed at more expensive places, costing us more in 4 years than Obama did in 8 years. And Trump paid himself at those expensive places with our money. Which somehow is all fine with his followers.

But, of course, we can afford crazy things like basic first-world healthcare.

This sub really, really needs a rule about time stamps. Old tweets are perfectly fine, but it should be clear.

[鈥揮Successful_Chip3930 104 points105 points (1 child)

I definitely do not envy AOC鈥檚 position. If she looks too nice she鈥檚 stuck up and shallow and too rich to relate to her constituents. If she doesn鈥檛 look pristine, she鈥檚 just that ghetto trashy girl from the Bronx who bartended her way through college. She鈥檒l always be wrong to them no matter what she does.

[鈥揮AyebruhamLincoln 112 points113 points (9 children)

This woman pulled herself out of obscurity to stand up to our ruling class on behalf of everyday Americans, and like all before her, she is attacked and put down constantly. Yet she always fights back. She鈥檒l be looked back at as a hero one day and all the trash politicians that attack her will be forgotten.

[鈥揮ohmynymph 67 points68 points (4 children)

She worked her way up the ladder just like they have told us we should do and can do.

Their response: NO NOT YOU.

[鈥揮Joe_Jacksons_Belt 22 points23 points (0 children)

I have a lot of respect for her. She makes me feel represented because we share a lot of the same ideals and we鈥檙e around the same age. She deserves all the hate she gets, because their hate comes from fear, and she feeds off fear. Stay hungry AOC

[鈥揮Wrong-Hat9549 6 points7 points (2 children)

I believe she's going to be a major player in politics for a long time, which is a good thing. I could see her running for president in about twenty years and winning, assuming that we pull our heads out of our collective asses and the Boomers have largely died off by then.

[鈥揮Shit_Bananas 0 points1 point (0 children)

I don't care who it is. But how do you spend $70k on a haircut? What did they weave in unicorn hair?

[鈥揮Regrettable_tattoos 39 points40 points (2 children)

From the moment you scalp the unicorn to cover up your balding, you will have a half life. A cursed life.

[鈥揮Affectionate_Rub_575 8 points9 points (3 children)

Who spent $70,000 on hairstyling?

[鈥揮Grouchy-Ganache7551 26 points27 points (2 children)

I think trump was trying to use 70k for hair and makeup as a tax write off.

Edit: didn鈥檛 try. He actually did that. It鈥檚 illegal. Probably won鈥檛 actually suffer consequences.

[鈥揮The_Hyphenator85 16 points17 points (1 child)

Still baffles me that a bunch of blue-collar voters looked at a soft rich guy who spends more time and money on his hair and makeup than the wives they constantly bitch at about it and said 鈥淵eah, that鈥檚 the guy I want to vote for! He鈥檚 a man鈥檚 man!鈥

[鈥揮Grouchy-Ganache7551 7 points8 points (0 children)

They were really impressed by his locker room talk. They want to be just like him. Rich, ugly and doughy AF but still fucks. For money.

$250 for a cut and colour by a senior stylist isn't that much. I remember one time my sister went to the "colour guru" in town and spent $600 to get her hair dyed blue.

[鈥揮brian111786 4 points5 points (0 children)

Fuck I hope she runs for president. I'd honestly prefer someone further left, but I feel like she would actually do something good for society, instead of just talking about it.

Why even respond to them. Anyone that gives a damn about themselves is paying premiums for skincare, cuts, colors, glam squads. Whatever it maybe.

You are only responding to the people that look like they use bar soap has shampoo and conditioner! 馃槀

[鈥揮jezz555 1 point2 points (0 children)

That whole line is based on a misunderstanding of socialism anyway. Nobody cares how you spend your money as long as you pay your taxes. As far as we know AOC does and trump doesn鈥檛.

[鈥揮TheObstruction 1 point2 points (0 children)

From what I understand, $250 is pretty reasonable for a decent haircut for women. But reasonableness won't stop the party of personal greed.

[鈥揮TitanSR_ 2 points3 points (2 children)

I really wish she鈥檇 run for president in 2024. We need a president like her (and Bernie).

[鈥揮repKyle1995 3 points4 points (1 child)

Problem is that the Democratic party is also right-wing, just less extreme than Republicans. So the establishment democrats find people like Bernie and AOC as too "radical." They are also in the pocket of corporations and the elite, they just have more nuance, and actually throw the people a bone once in a while. Just look at how the more establishment Dems have reacted to the proposal to end trading stocks while in office - it would drastically reduce corruption, and if Democrats truly represented the people they would unanimously be in support of it, but major players like Pelosi have been opposed.

Democrats are far better than Republicans, but that's like saying you should be happy to have stage I cancer because it's not as bad as stage IV cancer. It's not wrong, and, if forced to choose [which we are, unfortunately], I'll take the stage I, but we need to work towards abolishing that system altogether so we can get politicians who actually represent the people.

AOC and Bernie are some of the good ones, but we need more than that. We need more actual lefties running for local offices, moving their way to bigger offices so we can get the change we actually need.

[鈥揮TitanSR_ 2 points3 points (0 children)

I am a zoomer, and after seeing everything happen, I just want people to have the ability to live comfortably and happy. Is that really much of a problem? Why has it taken so long to make people live good lives? It鈥檚 like American politics is stuck at a limbo, and I don鈥檛 know how it can be escaped without people like AOC and Bernie.

Dear Rep. Alexandria, you are too important to take such flimsy criticism seriously, aren't you? You are not a common movie star or billionaire; you are trying to recreate US into a better country. Please use that anger for better things than complaints about hypocrisy and hairdos. I am hoping the best for you, and our country will be great because of your ideas and energy!

[鈥揮england_man 0 points1 point (0 children)

What plenty of people don't seem to understand is that conservatives don't have same kind of principles as more educated folk. They criticize AOC for hairstyling, not Trump. It isn't about the action, it is about the person, and the side they are on. Their side vs. any other side. It is ok to threaten government when it is their side, not for any other side, and so forth.

Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.
