For those who blast you for being anti Trump here is a possible reply you might want to use

So you think Donald Trump is a great President? He might be if it weren’t for his pathological lying (over 2000 laughably obvious lies as of the last count by the NYT), the fact that he has stiffed so many contractors, vendors and banks so that only criminal enterprises and the Russians will deal with him — and that only because he provides them money laundering services. Not to mention the fact that he built his entire political campaign for president on an ocean of xenophobic pandering to White tribal compulsions.

Historically he eventually ends up backstabs everyone who comes in contact with him (including his grassroots political supporters whose money he steals for giving to his rich pals, making him a great Republican) and ruins every project he attempts. It all comes down to the fact that he lacks the talent, discipline and ambition required to know how to do anything positive. Thus he simply wallows in exercising his destructive impulses, causing him to be seen by those in his own administration as variations of the term moron.

Now miraculously these obvious points of Trump’s character seem to have flown over your head. Otherwise if you persist to love the Donald you must enjoy lying, cheating and stealing pricks, folks probably like yourself.


Now, as informed minds can see, there is nothing unique among these points. They could serve as cliff notes for many books written about the Donald. But short of giving a book length reply, such a response should cover the necessary salient points.

So copy away for just the right occasion.
