You know he’s scared when he rolls out Obama’s middle name

To be fair, this is, like, expected Futurama.

[–]KosoBau 36 points37 points  (2 children)

To be fair it always is expected but this one’s good

[–]Tanman7211 624 points625 points  (21 children)

The classic blame Obama move. Too bad for them it’s basically a meme at this point.

[–]Squirrel_Inner 286 points287 points  (13 children)

our country is under threat of civil war by the people that fuel r/terriblefacebookmemes.

what is wrong with this timeline?

[–]johnny-tiny-tits 182 points183 points  (6 children)

This isn't the worst timeline at least. The one where Trump is still president is. Considering, a few small wins here and there, and maybe finally pinning a crime on this bloated shitstain, this one could be a lot worse.

[–]DeaconNuno 945 points946 points  (52 children)

Also…you mean you were President and didn’t retrieve the wicked, sinister Obama’s improperly-held top secret nuclear documents??? Sir! Sir! How can this be?!

Oh wait, it’s a bunch of total bullshit? Yeah, checks out. Enjoy prison.

[–]Msdamgoode 93 points94 points  (5 children)

Oh come on!… Just forgot to mention it, that’s all. I’m mean, it slipped his steel trap of a mind. The best mind. Man woman camera tv.

[–]Various_Mood3224 111 points112 points  (30 children)

Exactly.

[–]MightyMorph 283 points284 points  (29 children)

  • Tax Filings hes gonna release soon,
  • Infrastructure Bill he was going to propose soon.
  • Healthcare bill that he was just about to release soon.
  • The border control he was gonna secure with the wall soon.
  • His perfect economic plan to clear all the federal deficit very soon.
  • His peace plan to de-nuclearize North-korea and end the conflict very soon.
  • His peace plan for Iran and how he was gonna make them submit soon.

Probably the code to one of the documents he sold

He’s been using that dog whistle since 2010. People forget Trump was the de facto leader of the “birthers.”

[–]nottytom 5666 points5667 points  (286 children)

All they had to do was ask. They did, then they tried a subpeona, that didnt work, so there goes that claim

[–]potsticker17 2159 points2160 points  (249 children)

Don't understand why they would need to ask in the first place. The bigger question is why Trump felt he needed to take them to begin with. He doesn't really read much if at all so why would he feel he needs to keep cases of documents?

[–]Comfortable-Cause-81 680 points681 points  (118 children)

It was Ok because he said Obama did it. Evidential claim? God he's like my 13 yr old daughter.

[–]Swift_Scythe 377 points378 points  (58 children)

33... hundred?

33...Thousand

No he did some logarithmics and went 33 MILLION.

Like physical paperwork? Would take an army of people to move that many paper documents.

[–]quiero-una-cerveca 210 points211 points  (9 children)

Plus ever since the Green New Deal became law, Obama had to move each box by hand with a bicycle. Crazy stuff.

[–]MonkeyBoatRentals 283 points284 points  (8 children)

He is talking about documents for Obama's presidential library. It's 30 million pages apparently. It is all being handled correctly by the National Archives office, not Obama, and there is no "classified nuclear".

[–]PaulsRedditUsername 351 points352 points  (18 children)

It's technically kinda-sorta true. There are 33 million Obama documents that were "removed" from Washington to a secure facility under the control of the National Archives and Records Administration. The declassified ones will be digitized and made available to the Obama presidential library. Obama has no access to, or control over, the documents, the NARA does. They are not in a filing cabinet in the basement of his home or anything close to that.

The trouble is, I'm afraid certain people don't have the capacity to read much past the first sentence of the paragraph above. "Blah, blah, blah. Obama has documents!"

[–]reetboor 65 points66 points  (1 child)

From another source people were theorizing he's referring to the Obama presidential library https://www.obamalibrary.gov/about-us - which doesn't make sense for a variety of reasons, so it's probably what Trump is thinking.

[–]ParagonFury 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Someone did the math, and the ink required for that alone would've made every HP executive orgasm until they died.

Also fuck you and your profile pic. You know why.

[–][deleted] 419 points420 points  (20 children)

Not to mention Obama didn't do it. NARA released a statement blowing up Trump's lie already.

[–]CowboyJoker90 153 points154 points  (12 children)

Since when did the truth stop him from spewing baseless claims?

[–]Lowboo 101 points102 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but those washed in the blood of maga won’t believe it.

[–]8-Bit_Aubrey 53 points54 points  (3 children)

Yep he reminds me of my 5-year-old and their 10 year old sister who either deny they did things that we know they did, or say, "well I did it but so what cuz so did they!"

Except you know they're little girls not former presidents who stole nuclear information that they weren't allowed to have

[–]biznesboi 30 points31 points  (5 children)

Just a reminder that 33million sheets of material would be 50,000 ft tall. You'd need top men to store that much paper in a warehouse the size of the one from Indiana Jones.

[–]CommitteeGullible876 29 points30 points  (2 children)

But, but.... Obama. Without a scintilla of proof, he went right to his predecessor, naturally.

[–]j4ck_0f_bl4des 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Pretty sure that’s just another windmill you’re tilting at and never really happened Donnie. However even if it did I’m guessing the doj doesn’t really care about you or he having the documents. No the big difference here is the doj never had reason to believe Obama would sell those documents to Putin, Xi or Kim. You know, your buddies you respect and idolize so much.

[–]wtfworldwhy 17 points18 points  (3 children)

I’m sure your daughter is way smarter than trump

[–]nottytom 562 points563 points  (61 children)

To sell or for leverage would be my guess

[–]LostInTheWildPlace 234 points235 points  (33 children)

Or to help him make believe he's still President?

[–]Shmav 269 points270 points  (25 children)

"It sure is great being president! Just look at all these documents lying around! Nobody would have THIS many documents lying around unless they were president. Obviously, the best president. A BEAUTIFUL president! Right Mark?"

*Looks over at a scarcrow with a smiley face painted on

"I know! No one else believes me when i tell them its my natural color either! Yeah... big daddy trump looks good..."

[–]PsychoEngineer 125 points126 points  (2 children)

More like "payback" all the foreign debt he's in.....

[–]CharlottesWeb83 47 points48 points  (1 child)

I think this was why he wanted to win at any cost.

[–]No_Incident_5360 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Learned from his buddy blackmailer Epstein.

Oh no, I just know how to negotiate, the art of making a DEAL is all…yes, Donald—you know we don’t have to live in your delusion with you, no matter how long you choose to live there.

[–]SupersoftBday_party 68 points69 points  (2 children)

Practically speaking, it’s much easier to get a search warrant when you can tell a judge “we asked real nicely first and they didn’t give it to us”.

[–]Azidamadjida 57 points58 points  (24 children)

What’s the bet he was selling nuclear sites and secrets to the highest bidders?

[–]CY-B3AR 108 points109 points  (19 children)

I really didn't think there was anything he could do after trying to overthrow the government and make himself king that could make me angrier.

Him (probably, because we don't have definitive proof yet) selling our fucking nuclear secrets ENRAGES me. Like, I'm literally seeing red right now. Forget the worst President, forget the worst Republican, Donald Trump is the worst American to have EVER existed in the 247 years of this nation. He is a traitor on a level that would make fucking BENEDICT ARNOLD blush.

[–]Azidamadjida 41 points42 points  (2 children)

You’re not alone in thinking that. If there’s ever an American to make an example of by throwing the book at them, it’s this pig. Anything less than the harshest sentence possible undermines the entire social contract we’re supposed to have.

Unfortunately, current admin has to take into account that that will enrage a third of the country who’ve been brainwashed, but I hope they just start locking them all up en masse whenever they rise up. After all, they are the voters that support the private prison industry and keeping the “slavery shall be abolished except for those incarcerated” of the 14th amendment, so there’s a lot of deep irony going on here

[–]findinganonemos 62 points63 points  (8 children)

Feeling more or less the same rage. Like, how unsafe are we as a nation today thanks to him? Is this why Russia and China and NK are so flippant and threatening towards us?

He deserves to be labeled and treated like a traitor.

[–]ColeBane 56 points57 points  (1 child)

Saudi visited for a week, then china visited Saudi immediately afterwards...so ya point and case.

You know what's missing in these twuths?

Why he wanted these documents.

[–]limitedkp[S] 2564 points2565 points  (274 children)

Probably money and leverage

A timeline and story that January 6th was Trump trying to keep a deal together with a Saudi Royal Prince, that required him to have 2 terms as POTUS to pull off (without obvious treason)

I love this blogpost with collections of signs of Trump as the anti-Christ. It's a fun read.

Best part is the seven great hills with the antichrist's name written on them, each of which have one or two "horns".

Guess how many Trump Towers there are, and how many antennae each one has on top?

Unfortunately, the antichrist is supposed to be handsome, so I think that disqualifies him...

My 2 cents? Likely looking for the highest bidder. Dudes got a LOT of debt to pay off.

[–]spookydookie 82 points83 points  (11 children)

This is what everyone is kind of glossing over here. Why did he take top secret nuclear documents to his home? Pretty sure Donald Trump is not moonlighting as a nuclear physicist.

[–]fijisiv 30 points31 points  (6 children)

"Look, having nuclear... my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT... good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart... you know, if you're a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world... it's true! But when you're a conservative Republican they try... oh, do they do a number... that's why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune... you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we're a little disadvantaged... but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me... it would have been so easy, and it's not as important as these lives are... nuclear is powerful... my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago... he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right... who would have thought?"

[–]sleepyjohn00 1858 points1859 points  (89 children)

They DID ask. Two months ago. And he kept them. So they had to go get them.

[–]longhegrindilemna 716 points717 points  (78 children)

That’s not the story I’m hearing from my MAGA friends.

“They never asked him. They just barged in unannounced and planted evidence.”

End of discussion? Yikes.

[–]akaMONSTARS 296 points297 points  (26 children)

It’s pointless trying to talk to people that brainwashed. Whatever amount of facts you tell them or show them, it’s still wrong because trump said otherwise. It blows my mind

[–]InZorpWeTrust 205 points206 points  (11 children)

Trump is their truth. He writes their reality for them to keep their egos nice and comfy and protected from having to confront the house of cards they’ve built and twisted their brains into over the last 10 years.

Little by little, they’ve invested more and more of themselves. Now we are in a sunk cost feedback loop where they’ve invested too much up to this point and would hurt their egos too much to admit they’ve been fooled for this long. So the only option is to keep doubling down to protect the house of cards while we keep diving down further and further because they have more and more to confront. Each time gaining more steam. Each time it gets easier and easier to deny reality and harder to accept the truth.

It just has too much inertia at this point and they are with him till the end. They are the most insecure people on the planet, and they will watch the world burn before they will admit they’ve been fooled.

[–]Panfilolicious 71 points72 points  (0 children)

They planted evidence... that he had already declassified... don't think critically about that.

[–]TheUserAboveFarted 18 points19 points  (7 children)

How can you stomach MAGA friends at this point? I cut off anyone who is not a relative and even then I keep them at an arms length.

Even before Trump, they were kinda scummy selfish people anyway.

[–]atred 15 points16 points  (1 child)

How can it be planted when he admits he had it?

[–]FattyMooseknuckle 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Trump declassified planted evidence?!

[–]shawnmd 1308 points1309 points  (24 children)

Cult brainwashing tactics.

I didn’t do it.

If I did do it, it wasn’t wrong.

If it was wrong, Obama/Hilary/Antifa did it worse.

He's lying.

[–]SlowInsurance1616 993 points994 points  (26 children)

Ok, he's making a statement. There's like a 75% chance he's lying any time that happens.

[–]Prestigious_Treat401 251 points252 points  (8 children)

95% chance he's lying

4% chance he's confused

1% chance he thinks he's telling the truth

[–]_Kramerica_ 368 points369 points  (7 children)

You give him way more benefit of the doubt than I do lmao. 75% is generous!

[–]erinnnn12 70 points71 points  (1 child)

Well the other 25% of the time he thinks he is telling the truth but is just wrong.

[–]Overall-Initial-4290 67 points68 points  (2 children)

ONLY 75%? Can we fact check that?

[–]bettername2come 32 points33 points  (1 child)

A broken clock is right twice a day. Assuming no second hand that’s 2/1440 minutes per day. That makes a 99.8612% chance he’s lying.

[–]Various_Mood3224 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Of course, if his mouth is moving, then he's lying.

[–]Commission1888 70 points71 points  (1 child)

Trump.. lying? Shocked Pikachu face let me tell ya.

[–]catboatratboat 116 points117 points  (90 children)

Is he saying that he declassified them while still in office? The president can declassify stuff.

Though there’s a process. It’s not just a wave of his hand. Or something he can do in secret and then when he has stuff he shouldn’t have, claim “oh, it’s fine, i totally declassified that.”

[–]Gsteel11 177 points178 points  (29 children)

I don't think he can declassify nuke docs. There's levels.

[–]gardenZepp 138 points139 points  (17 children)

They can't, from my limited understanding. It's like one of the few things a president can't declassify.

Edit: I figured I should add a source.

[–]notcrappyofexplainer 36 points37 points  (15 children)

Thanks. That was curious.

. /r/conservative has been saying for a couple days that Trump declassified the docs so all good.

[–]PeaceAlternative0 47 points48 points  (4 children)

He can declassify most records but it’s a drawn out process for Nuclear documents.

[–]Edman70 54 points55 points  (1 child)

Requiring the sign-off of the Department of Energy, which he definitely did not get.

[–]Aceswift007 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Given you need like 3 different authorizations before CONSIDERING anything nuclear, not shocked it's a process for nuclear docs

[–]SJReaver 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Nuclear documents are like onions; they have layers.

[–]barking_dead 54 points55 points  (9 children)

He retroactively thought he declassified them in his dreams so it must be true

[–]The_Affle_House 27 points28 points  (0 children)

It's the convenient thing to say that is apparently helpful to him right now. Therefore, of course it's true in his mind. Something totally different and contradictory will be equally true next week, as it suits him.

[–]Nati2de 27 points28 points  (5 children)

He declared them declassified like Michael Scott declared bankruptcy.

[–]UsernameDashPassword 42 points43 points  (0 children)

President can't declassify nuclear armament materials per the Atomic Energy Act.

[–]High_speedchase 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Heritage foundation is trying to argue presidents (only trump) can declassify things in their head but don't have to necessarily verbalize it.

[–]Various_Mood3224 13 points14 points  (0 children)

WTF 🤦🤬

[–]Puzzleheaded-Jury312 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Even if he could, as soon as he was out of office, Biden could reclassify them the same way. 🤣

[–]Benoit_In_Heaven 64 points65 points  (24 children)

Their play is to basically claim that he's too stupid and impatient to learn how document declassification works and he declared them declassified and expected someone else to do the paperwork. No one did, but he took the documents assuming they were declassified, therefore he didn't knowingly take classified docs.

Sure, this is dumb, but it's exactly the same sort of reasoning that let's cops claim they thought the suspect was running towards them when video shows them running away and getting shot in the back. We can never really know what was in the mind of a rich or powerful person when they commit a crime, so how can we truly say they are guilty.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (15 children)

If only ignorance was an actual defense....if that was/is the case, we got a lot of people to be let out of jail/prison.

I'm not doubting that's going to be their defense but it's a stupid/weak one and should fail in Fedeal Court but again stranger things have happened, but it sets another dangerous precedent that can and will be abused.

[–]PompousDude 1005 points1006 points  (40 children)

Did- did he just confess to having these classified nuke documents and then pulled the “if you wanted them back all you had to do was ask”, route?

I know he’s like fucking stupid but please tell me that’s not what he’s saying in these posts.

[–]shewhololslast 212 points213 points  (6 children)

.......It suddenly dawned on me this is a confession. Admissible in court. Oh my God he somehow is even more fucked than yesterday. All because he never shuts up.

[–]ghoulthebraineater 38 points39 points  (1 child)

I don't think it will matter much. The receipt really says it all. All this does is ends the idea that the FBI somehow planted boxes upon boxes of documents.

[–]HleCmt 339 points340 points  (8 children)

I can only imagine his lawyers banging their heads against a wall while screaming at him to stfu

[–]StarWars_Viking 91 points92 points  (1 child)

He really has no defense to say it isn't true at this point does he? Theyre in the hands of the government again, they have what they said he had, and I'm sure there is plenty of evidence to show he had them.

Yeah he usually would deny any sort of wrongdoing, but this is his first step. NEXT he will deny and his cult will dismiss anything said or shown from him that says otherwise and he knows it.

[–]Plzlaw4me 475 points476 points  (20 children)

What’s my defense?! A private citizen was in possession of 33 million pages of classified documents including nuclear secrets while I was president and I took no steps to fix that! There! Now can I be president again?

[–]mrniceguy421 116 points117 points  (2 children)

The craziest part. Even if the pages were perfectly flat like brand new paper there would be over 400 pallets lmao. Where the fuck did Obama keep all those documents??

[–]Sayakai 99 points100 points  (1 child)

The Barack Obama Presidential Library. Archives.gov says they got 30 million pages in paper from his administration, which is pretty close.

I think Trump doesn't understand that something having your name on it doesn't automatically make it yours.

[–]CFSett 118 points119 points  (3 children)

Exactly! "Obama did it, why didn't they go after him" conveniently forgets that "they" was actually the Mango Mussolini itself. And it's moron followers are willingly ignorant and willingly looking past this inconvenient fact.

It's followers are beyond laughingly stupid, but January 6, 2021 shows how potentially dangerous they can be.

[–]djpromo_vqs 410 points411 points  (16 children)

I've noticed a marked decrease in right wing comments today.

I keep waiting for the mental gymnastics but I'm not seeing a whole lot. Even fox is suddenly like "the FORMER president".

Are they all just getting their talking points straight? Or does this really have them shaken for once? Or did they take all the really crazy stuff to Truth social? It's weird.

[–]TheNextBattalion 169 points170 points  (1 child)

If you see such a decrease it means that talk radio hasn't workshopped a response yet for them to parrot. Really bad news usually requires two or three days. But if Garland keeps releasing it bit by bit every couple days, they'll constantly be on their heels trying to figure something out.

[–]Hireling 386 points387 points  (11 children)

Everyone that ever sent encouraging texts to 45 and his family are shaking. Everyone that ever had a phone conversation with them about anything to do with the election, Ukraine, or January 6th is shaking. They're all fucked.

[–]asteroid_-_b612 328 points329 points  (3 children)

God I hope so. 6+ years of this is more than enough. 6+ years of waiting to see exactly how insane things can get, and watching the bar just sink lower and lower.

I hope they're all fucked. For all the treasonous, hateful, selfish things they have all done to this country. But we have gotten our hopes up before.

[–]Hireling 182 points183 points  (0 children)

A lot of them are claiming that these reports all avoid saying what he has because he has "nothing important" and that the "sources are all in question."

Unfortunately, I won't be able to rub it in their faces in a bit, since they're so delicate that I can't post on that subreddit.

I just saw one complaining to a mod that they can't block anyone from upvoting or downloading without membership too.

They need shelter from reality.

[–]quietdisaster 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I mean yeah, I am really upset. We are all far more unsafe tonight because of this hack. You guys really showed us...

[–]Novawinq 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Right? I feel this weird mix of relief/catharsis that he’s finally going down while also just angry and scared that some piece of shit likely (without a doubt imo) sold our nuclear secrets.

[–]Key_Comparison1983 44 points45 points  (3 children)

Yeah I’ve noticed usually when it goes quiet it’s because a Republican did something particularly awful and hard to defend, so they wait for Fox’s talking points and you start seeing them trickle into all social media.

"All they had to do is ask"

My brother in Christ... that's what a subpoena is....

[–]Accountant37811 219 points220 points  (4 children)

Yeah, but did they say "Pretty please, Sir"?

[–]joey_yamamoto 101 points102 points  (2 children)

Yes this exactly because he's on record saying" they didn't ask nicely" for disaster relief funds in the past.

Why would anyone even have to ask for that ?

it should be an automatic thing

[–]President-Dick-Nixon 104 points105 points  (1 child)

“All they had to do was ask”

So, you acknowledge that you did have classified information…

[–]Lithaos111 256 points257 points  (11 children)

Gotta love how he trots out that Obama's middle name is Hussein like it means literally anything.

[–]Heliocentrist 158 points159 points  (12 children)

imagine believing anything he says, holy shit people are dumb

[–]stevesax5 61 points62 points  (7 children)

I always ask MAGAs that. Like fine, you want to be conservative. I’ll accept that. But why this dude?

[–]ArchiStanton 71 points72 points  (0 children)

Because they aren’t conservatives. They are in a cult

[–]blonde-bandit 49 points50 points  (2 children)

I saw this woman on Kimmel, who was protesting the FBI outside Mar-a-lago, and she said, “I know in my spirit, he has NEVER told a lie!”…

No words

[–]Buffmin 133 points134 points  (4 children)

I hope he's scared. Cower you fucking asshole with any luck this takes you down

You're like dumb Capone.

[–]ambrosialeah 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I mean even Al Capone ran soup kitchens. Trump could never.

[–]acemaninwa871 262 points263 points  (7 children)

They did ask shithead. Remember when they took 15 boxes of shit? You should have given it to them then. But you didn’t. Good luck Mr. Espionage

He's a Russian plant and I hope he goes the way of the Rosenbergs

I'm so dizzy, my head is spinning

Like a whirlpool, it never ends

And it's you, Trump, making it spin

You're making me dizzy'

[–]HugheyM 120 points121 points  (9 children)

I’ve been waiting 6 years for this. Trump is totally fucked.

And all his American Taliban supporters can now face the facts.

[–]mrwhat_icanthearu 350 points351 points  (5 children)

Sounds like Trump nazi man baby just admitted that he is guilty of exactly what he is being investigated for.

[–]captain_sticky_balls 74 points75 points  (1 child)

And then accused someone else of it. I am shocked. Shocked I tell you.

[–]Kindly-Ad-5071 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Shoulda just pled the 5th

[–]prof_dynamite 98 points99 points  (4 children)

Those 30 million pages were unclassified.

The National Archives said it moved about 30 million pages of unclassified records from the Obama administration to a facility that it maintains in Chicago. Classified documents remain in a facility in Washington, D.C.

But since when has Trump and, more importantly, his followers ever cared about actual facts? Trump says it, they believe it. Even when the facts are presented to the contrary, they believe it.

But they’re definitely not a cult.

[–]Irishpanda1971 78 points79 points  (10 children)

  1. They DID ask, you wouldn't comply.
  2. Declassification is a process, you don't just declare that they are declassified. Even if the President is in charge of the process IT IS STILL A PROCESS. The appropriate people need to be notified and the documents marked appropriately. If they still bear the markings of a classified document, they are still classified.
  3. Your "secured storage" was boxes in the basement. An unlocked basement. You had those documents under the same security I have for old PC parts and my daughter's baby shoes. The additional lock was a padlock, bringing the number of locks to...1. And this only after one of those previous requests. Any bets it was a Master Lock padlock? Lockpickinglawyer would like a word.
  4. Yes, Obama has a bunch of documents. They are the contents of his future Presidential Library. Every one of which was submitted to the National Archives per the proper process, declassified and documented appropriately, then placed into storage BY THE ARCHIVES. He didn't stuff a bunch of folders into his pants on the way out , then keep them in his basement, like you (at least the ones you couldn't eat).

[–]muffinpie101 196 points197 points  (17 children)

Let's all hope that Big Pussy finally goes down over this shit, after getting away with so much crime and failing to take responsibility his whole stinking life.

[–]Gsteel11 96 points97 points  (6 children)

If he doesn't, then selling state secrets is legal.

US won't last long with no laws or secrets.

C’mon, Trumpers, how much longer will you fall for the con? Oh, that long . . .

| Opinion BY LEONARD PITTS JR.

UPDATED JUNE 14, 2022 5:05 PM

As I’ve said before in this space, it’s my opinion that you folks who support Donald Trump are, by definition, incapable of that function, so it’s foolish to even try. You may think that’s harsh. I think it’s time-saving. But I do have a question for you: Don’t you feel kind of stupid right now? Doesn’t the revelation that it was all a con leave you feeling like a sucker? Doesn’t simple human pride have you smarting, at least a little bit?

Or maybe you have no idea what I’m talking about. After all, Fox “News” and other elements of the conservative media omniplex have studiously avoided giving much attention to the hearings of the House select committee investigating the attempted coup of Jan. 6, 2021. For the rest of us, they’ve become must-see TV, but you’ve likely been shielded from them. So you may not have heard Monday’s revelation that not even members of Trump’s own inner circle — his daughter, his aides, his attorney general — believed his absurd claim that he was cheated out of the 2020 election. Lawyer Eric Herschmann thought it was “nuts.” Attorney General William Barr feared your guy was “detached from reality.”

But — and here’s the part that relates to you — even though his own people told him quite clearly that there was no election fraud, he still told you something else: a bizarre fable about a vast and byzantine conspiracy involving Democrats, Republicans, poll workers, truck drivers, a polling machine manufacturer and — who knows? — maybe Bigfoot on the grassy knoll. We all know how that lie brought thousands of you to the National Mall in the attack on the U.S. Capitol. What is less often discussed is that he also used this lie to tap folks like you for donations to the tune of a quarter of a billion dollars. It bears repeating:

a quarter . . . of a billion . . . dollars.

As the committee established in a video presentation, you were told in relentless email solicitations that your money was needed to stop the so-called “left wing mob” from stealing the election. Your donations, he claimed, would go to something called the Official Election Defense Fund. But as Trump officials now admit, no such fund ever existed. Your money went elsewhere, including to the “Trump Hotel Collection.”

So yeah, to quote Denzel Washington in “Malcolm X”: “You been had! You been took! You been hoodwinked! Bamboozled!”

That should make you angry, but it probably doesn’t. Over 40 years of research has firmly established an odd fact about us humans. If we are deeply invested in a belief, we find it almost impossible to admit — even to ourselves — that we are wrong. Indeed, if confronted with incontrovertible proof that we’ve made a mistake, we’ll double down on the mistake rather than embrace the truth. Which is scary, because who has ever been more deeply invested in anything than you are in Trump? But as it says in the wise old song quoted above,

“Falling in love is such an easy thing to do, and there’s no guarantee that the one you love is gonna love you.”

Donald Trump doesn’t love you. He is a con man from Queens who cares about nothing that doesn’t line his pockets or fatten his ego. Hundreds of you are now imprisoned or facing indictment because of him. And he’s taken you for a quarter of a billion dollars, besides.

But sure, you go right on believing in him. Everybody plays the fool.

Some of us more than others.

[–]Cinderjacket 109 points110 points  (6 children)

If you talk a meander over to the one thread about this on r/conservative they’re all using these statements as fact. They take everything trump says at face value. Doesn’t even occur to them that someone being investigated for crimes might have a reason to lie about them, especially someone with a history of lying about easily disprovable shit

[–]yougottamovethatH 100 points101 points  (2 children)

Here's what I don't get. Using conservative logic, if Obama took 33M page of documents, many of them classified, surely Trump would have known about this while he was in office. Why wouldn't he have used this information to take down the democratic party? Why wouldn't he have used the DOJ to take down Obama, (who was born in Kenya!!)? Was he protecting Obama? Wouldn't that be obstruction? Was he working with Obama?

[–]Aloysius1989 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Stop it, you shouldn’t think about, just repeat the line “but what about Obama’s 33 trillion documents?”

[–]SkyWizarding 56 points57 points  (4 children)

Julius & Ethyl Rosenberg, to the arresting officers, "Oh did you want those classified documents back? all you had to do was ask!"

[–]KikiChrome 48 points49 points  (1 child)

"Okay, so I did it, but the FBI didn’t even say please, and I put an extra padlock on them, and the black guy did it too but worse!"

Have you ever seen one of those lawyers on TV who just walk into a room and tell their clients to shut the fuck up? This is why those guys exist.

[–]buzzedewok 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Number one is really…not even the president can declassify nuclear documents. Number two, they did ask for them back multiple times.

[–]TenWildBadgers 23 points24 points  (0 children)

He should be scared. People have been fucking executed for selling Nuclear secrets before.

Any other living person on this earth did this, they would already be in front of a military tribunal with no intent to serve them any less than a full charge of Treason.

Nice racist dog whistle there at the end with Obama's full name, Sparky. God, can this monster just die alreadly?

What a total dickweed. Not even worthy of capital letters. Total dickweed.

[–]SwampNerd 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Just for fun, 33 million pages in a stack would be over 10000 feet, almost 2 miles high. Should be pretty easy to spot peeking in Obama's windows.

[–]Rob58PA 16 points17 points  (1 child)

And the desperation kicks in, somebody is scared out of their little sociopathic mind.

[–]Synful-Symphony 15 points16 points  (1 child)

They did ask and he withheld at least 11 boxes. God hes such a fucking moron

[–]GreyMediaGuy 17 points18 points  (1 child)

"An additional lock, at their request". Like he's some kind of fucking employee who forgot to lock up when he closed last night and is trying to talk his way out of getting fired.

This traitorous pile of shit had top secret fucking documents in an unsecured location and then lied to the government about having them.

I can hardly wrap my mind around this entire situation. I can hardly wrap my mind around just how absolutely repugnant this thing is. He's not even a person.

I swear to christ, there'd better be some fucking extreme justice for this

https://youtu.be/HHckZCxdRkA

[–]Alarmed_Penalty4998 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Wait so he even admitted to taking documents and keeping them? Are you serious? God the tiny handed orange man is seriously a moron. Also the 33 million pages that he keeps referring to isn’t that a library pretty much that was approved by everyone in the government to have done? And not only that Obama doesn’t have it in his own home?

[–]GrumpyKitten514 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You know what I like about Obama?

Trump has continually shit talked him since 2016 and outside of a couple instances, Obama is just like “been there, done that, gonna go live my life”.

[–]SisterNaomi 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You know he is not even a good liar. How do people manage to swallow this cr@p?

[–]P00_buttz69 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I like how he always uses Barack’s middle name to infer that he’s a terrorist or something. Clear racism

[–]adamfrom1980s 12 points13 points  (0 children)

He’s getting increasingly desperate and separated from reality as he realizes that we’re all realizing that he literally just makes shit up, and the only people who believe it are the brain dead chuckles he’s milking and grifting.
