Jimmy "Venezuela has the best democracy on the face of the Earth" Carter going to NK.

Gon b fun!

Is it just me or has there been an uptick in posts about how dumb conspiracy theories are, coincidentally now that some files on the JFK assassination are going to be released? I've seen it here, on Facebook, on reddit…

I've noticed it too although I highly doubt anything substantial will come of the JFK release. It'll surely either be altered or redacted into oblivion. Maybe possibly unlikely redacted just enough to have people be able to fill in the blanks though.

Even if it was a conspiracy they'd just release pages and pages of black bars so it wouldn't make much of a difference.

Did he actually say this? Damn, Jimmy is based.

Israel trying to build a case for bigger interventions I see. Just more evidence that Assad is winning.

It's a response among the liberal thought-leaders to Alex Jones' movement into the mainstream courtesy of Trump and Mercerbux.

WaPo came out with a flow chart showing how Trump's bald-faced lie lead to an entire week of troubles.

I know it's not anything of consequence, but it is fascinating to see how shit quickly crumbles in the Trump administration.



Jimmy has gotten better over the years, yeah he may have some flaws, but Im kinda happy to have had a president from my home state.

Good lord, what a mess.

Holy fuck lmao

how does he keep fucking up the simplest shit

I'm so glad this moron got elected.
Say what you will of Dubya but he wasn't this much of a public fuck up. Good god these are the morons that capitalism pushes into being our leaders.

I think a lot of people don't really give a shit about the spectacle anymore. His base would legit put up with anything from him short of clearly breaking his promise on the border wall or reversing course on immigration

Reporting on the results of electing a president with advanced brain pockets is important in deconstructing the idea that he's in any way competent but it will never be enough after 2016. People want good policies and jobs and healthcare which should be the core message of the left

Thank you newsanon

Any good opinion pieces floating around out there?

You''re underestimating how many Americans are sick of his god damn shit, and it's not even been a year

As of right now, in the eyes of Trump fanboys he can do no wrong. This whole alt-right/Kekistan thing will be viewed as MLP-tier cringe in the relatively near future, but not until Trump finishes his presidency.

That's not a large portion of the working day to day population that have to worry about every time this asshole opens his mouth about health care

True, but I doubt the Dems are going to nothing except run on "we're not trump" for 2018 and 2020 because clintonism is a hard to remove brain parasite

Tfw I am ashamed to be American… Again…

Zuckerberg might have a chance at beating him if he turns it into a dick measuring contest of who has the bigger/more efficient business and offering average Joe's in key swing states money in exchange for votes (or not participating at all).

No need to be. Nationality is a spook.

I feel like Jimmy Carter legit wants everyone to be cool but has too much faith in porky.

Zuckerberg getting the nomination would be proof that were all former leftist guerillas that got killed and sent to hell for killing jesuits

what a shock!

It proves that capitalism isn't a meritocracy. Puerto Rico, calling families of dead soldiers and offering them money, it could be the simplest of shit. They're calling you a racist? Give shitloads of your own money, show up to PR and give them highly publicized aid. Instead, he spends all his time sperging out about how someone was mean to him. Tomorrow he could hire a ghost-writer for his twitter and instant bring his approval writing 5 points.

It turns out handing out fortunes to random spoiled white kids is a terrible idea.

I disagree. Someone hand me a fortune.


I want this image to become reality.

why even bother lads?

Dems are allegedly purging berniebros. Left cucked again, republican-lite party is working hard for Trump reelection.

Patrician tier. Imagine MetroLancs.
