While I do believe it's pointless to try to engage Trump supporters in intelligent conversation (they are incapable of it), I also believe we can have a bit of fun by responding to some of their nonsense. There is no harm in spending a small portion of one's day ridiculing these creatures. Just keep in mind that you will not change their minds. They have no minds to change. So do it solely for the enjoyment.
Sue Jurski (on Facebook, 3-14-17): "Hmm another woman in the cabinet of this 'woman hater' Thank you Mr President."
My response: "He
doesn't hate women. He loves them. That is, he loves to grab them by
the pussy. And he loves to spy on them while they're changing. And let's
be clear. He doesn't just love women. He loves girls too. Young girls.
Even ten-year-old girls he sees as potential future dates."
Suzanne Kuzbyt's response: "Michael D. you are creepy weird. I think you just described yourself! POS trailer trash gutter rat!"
My response: "Suzanne
Kuzbyt, I guess you've forgotten the footage of him talking about a
ten-year-old as a potential date. Also, the 14-year-olds he directly
told he'd be dating soon. And maybe you forgot about his delightful
pussy-grabbing speech in which he bragged about hitting on a married
woman. Also, his creepy comments about his daughter. Don't worry,
Suzanne, I will remind you of these things from time to time."
My second response: "Friends
(yes, I'm including you, Suzanne), you may have also forgotten that his
first wife accused him of rape, as did another woman more recently, a
woman who only withdrew her accusation after receiving multiple death
threats. So, yes, Donald Trump has a lot of respect for women. Keep
telling yourselves that, and ignore all the information to the contrary."
Dorothy Cain (on Facebook, 3-14-17): "I
just wish that all the people in America could appreciate everything
your administration are doing for us. Thank you President Trump."
My response: "Dorothy, I agree! Why can't all the people appreciate what Donald and his gang are doing? Don't they see he's doing it all for them? Destroying public education and undermining the EPA and golfing and lying and being rude to journalists and golfing and taking away our health care and golfing and trying to get people to buy his daughter's clothing line - this is all done for the people's benefit. Why can't they appreciate that?"
Dorothy Cain: "Michael
Doherty It is pathetic that you and the rest of the crazies are so mean
spirited. You need to pay attention to your own lives and get a life.
Have a nice day. Sad"
My response: "Dorothy
Cain, wait, I should pay attention to my life and then get it?
Shouldn't I get a life first, and then pay attention to it? And what
exactly is mean-spirited about what I typed? Pointing out horrible
things that Donald is doing is mean-spirited? So, you think he should
just be able to do whatever he wants and not be criticized? Dorothy,
you're a regular fascist, that's what you are."
Cristi McCracken (on Facebook, 3-14-17): "We
love you President Trump!!! They have to try and make you look bad
because you make all of them look bad. We are behind you Mr President
and very grateful for your enthusiasm and service!"
My response: "Cristi,
you are right! The liberals are making Trump look bad. Why can't they
quit quoting him and repeating the awful things he says? They're doing
that just to make him look bad. And they should stop pointing out his
lies. Don't they know that doing that makes him look bad? And stop
pointing out that he tapes his neckties together. And don't photograph
his hair in the wind. And stop photographing his utter lack of regard or
affection for his wife. That also makes him look bad. Cristi, why
can't they just stop making him look bad?"
Jerica Wright-Trotter (on Facebook, 3-14-17): "So
sad today! My husband and I just received an invitation to the
Inauguration. Why it came in the mail almost a month late, we do not
know:( We would have been there! Regardless, keep doing what you're
doing President Trump. We could not be happier-2 Middle Class Americans!"
My response: "Jerica,
you guys should still go! That way, Donald's estimate of how many
people attended his inauguration will be slightly closer to accurate.
Have a great time, you two!"
My second response: "Oh, and Jerica, you said 'almost a month late.' Do you believe the inauguration occurred in mid-February?"
Melissa Diane Leonard (on Facebook, 3-16-17): "Dishonest
Dems spreading lies that building was half full last night. No mention
of the thousands turned away that waited hours in the cold to get in -
they were told building @ capacity. #FAKENEWS #TennesseeLovesPotus"
My response: "People who chant 'USA! USA! USA!' are like dogs that have been trained to bark on command. Bad dog, no health care for you."
Daniel Duarte: "Michael Doherty Showing pride in your country is not a bad thing...sigh..."
My response to Daniel: "Daniel
Duarte, it's not about pride, and you should know that. It's about
salivating on command, it's about being the willing tools of an insane,
narcissistic leader. There is no thought behind those chants."
Daniel Duarte: "Michael
Doherty How is he insane? Lowering taxes, improving the economy,
securing the border, promoting sovereignty, etc, is not insane. It's
not salivating on command, they just want to show their enthusiasm for
the country and for Trump, who is a representation
of restoring American sovereignty, economic strength and independence,
against the crony-corporate/globalist/totalitarian leftist establishment
trying to implement a global regime. THEY (the globalist
establishment) are what is insane."
My response: "Daniel
Duarte, clearly you are a lost cause. Did you ever see any of the
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers movies? None of those folks were ever
able to regain their senses either. Trump supporters are no longer in
control of their minds. Yet they keep typing bullshit on Facebook and
Karen K. Dragovich (on Facebook, 3-16-17): "Snowflakes
go away...The real people spoke at elections and President Trump is
who we choose so get over it...Go away an cry your little eyes out. You
democrats states your not hateful but you show hate each and everyday.
Grow up! Trump is now our President! Don't like it then move to another
ountry if they will have you."
My response: "Karen
K Dragovich, please check your medication. You are speaking gibberish
again. You're addressing the weather. Remember last spring when you kept
talking to rain? Remember what the doctor told you? And you're trying
to make distinctions again between real people and imagined people.
That's good, except you're getting it all wrong. The voices in your head
are not the real people. Karen, please, if you ever want to get better,
you're going to have to stay on your medication. And what the hell is
an ountry? Also, please learn the difference between 'you're' and 'your,' Karen."
Then I went to Karen's own Facebook page, and saw this post: "Who are you before and after drinking? I invite you to this test. Click here to generate your result now."
My comment: "Karen,
remember, the doctor told you that you shouldn't be drinking, not with
the medications that you're taking for your delusions."
I had posted this on Donald Trump's Facebook page on March 16th after he held another rally so he could surround himself with his demented followers: "Who
loves Donald more than Donald? No one. No one even comes close to
loving Donald as much as Donald does. Donald is Donald's biggest,
greatest fan. Donald holds Donald rallies. Donald answers questions
about a variety of topics, but the answers are always
about Donald, not about the subject asked. Because, really, what
subject holds as much fascination for Donald as Donald? The Donald
movement continues, brought to us all by Donald."
The message was to Donald, but one of his pet lunatics responded.
JeanAnn Perry: "And
you're jealous Do Do bird. What are to leave our country and go over
where the muslums are so you can join their cult and blow yourself up"
My response: "Uh-oh, JeanAnn Perry has escaped from her cage again. Someone want to help me get her back in there before she hurts herself?"
Bob Garner (on Facebook, 3-17-17): "More
AWESOME news from the President. THANK YOU.........Confidence in the
USA went through the roof on election night and has continued to sky
rocket since. We have hope again, not DESPAIR which the last 8
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG years brought us. THANK GOD....."
My response: "Bob,
you are so right! And like Donald says, the elderly have already eaten
enough. They don't need any more meals. Let's keep winning (except, of
course, those elderly folks... and students... and Muslims... and
women... and artists... and transgender people)."
Elaine Campbell (on Facebook, 3-17-17): "Disregard
the tiny little poor losers, Trump!!! .....their whining is sooooo
pathetic!!!! Keep up the good work and continue to keep the promises
you made to those who REALLY care about this country and where it is
My response: "I
agree, Elaine! Trump should ignore the tiny and the poor. And he should
keep all his promises, like showing us his tax returns and not playing
Stephen Weipert (on Facebook, 3-18-17): "Keep
going! The snowflakes, most of whom dont work yell, scream and cry.
But those of us who work 40+ hours a week, take care of our families are
silent but behind you."
My response: "Good
for you, Stephen! If you've managed to silently get behind him, you
could probably quickly dispatch the bastard and make an escape. Good
Barry Olken (on Ivanka Trump's Facebook page, 3-17-17): "The
reason I personally admire your Dad is because he is making the
unpopular choices that are needed to secure my grandchild's
future....God Bless you and your family"
My response: "Barry,
if your grandchild is a girl, then Donald will probably try to date her
at some point, and then her future will certainly be secure."
Al Collier: "Michael Doherty, what low down, uncalled for statement. You should be investigated"
My response to Al: "Al Collier, spoken like a true fascist. Good for you, you little Nazi."
I posted this on Donald Trump's Facebook page, but it is directed at his supporters: "If
you support Donald Trump, you are an enemy of democracy. You are an
enemy of the environment. You are an enemy of education. You are an
enemy of women. You are an enemy of transgender people. You are an enemy
of the poor. You are an enemy of the elderly.
You are an enemy of public television. You are an enemy of the arts. If
you support Donald Trump, you are a racist and a fascist. There is no
way around it. So quit your bullshit and own up to the fact that you are
all horrible people. Just admit it. Be proud of it, because you are
unlikely to change, because you seem immune to facts. You ignore any
information that is contrary to your belief in Donald Trump. One more
thing.... unless you are a millionaire, Donald Trump will end up
screwing you before too long. So you are your own enemy as well."
Victoria Price (on Facebook, 3-20-17): "KY.
loves, Donald Trump, you, just keep doing, what you do best, leading
the way to make America great again. Please, remember, we like you, the
way you are. I didn't vote for a politician in a suit, that says what
you want to hear, and does nothing after they are voted in. Donald
Trump, you are the kind of man, that says what he means, and does what
he says, that is why, I voted for you."
My response: "Victoria,
you are out of your mind. You like him the way he is? You like being
grabbed by the pussy, do you, Victoria? You like being lied to? You like
having your health care taken away? You like your environment being
ruined? Victoria, you probably should look inward a bit, take some time,
discover where you went wrong. It's not too late, Victoria. You can
still turn things around."
My second response: "Victoria,
most Trump fans love exclamation points. You stick out because you love
commas. Look at them all, so many unnecessary commas."
Cyndi Goodrich (on Facebook, 3-20-17): "You
were born for such a time as this. GOD has anointed you and appointed
you. Stay humble before HIM and there's not a devil in Hell big enough
to stop you from fulfilling what HE'S ordained you to do!"
(As you might guess, a lot of people responded to this lunacy from Cyndi.)
My response: "Friends,
stop teasing Cyndi. She's having a tough time fighting her way through
some serious illusions. And her medication is having adverse effects on
her appearance as well. Also, she just learned from her doctor that the
cloud formations above her shack have not been sending her the correct
lottery numbers, and she thinks her favorite television characters are
angry with her. So these nutty outbursts are kind of understandable."
Then I went to Cyndi's Facebook page and posted this: "Cyndi,
God told me to contact you. He wants you to stop supporting Donald
Trump. God told me that Donald Trump is actually a tool of the devil,
and all of his supporters have an eternity of damnation to look forward
to. Repent, Cyndi! Repent now!"
I think there is a good chance she'll believe me.
Judy Carolyn Adams (on Facebook, 3-20-17): "Haters
will hate.. I am 100% Trump fan. He is MY president and will till the
end of his time.... Not everything can be controlled but so far he is
doing a great job...."
My response: "Judy,
what is it you love about him? His respect for women? His love for the
environment? His understanding of government? His smooth diplomatic
skills? His impeccable spelling? His honesty? His care toward education?"
Miranda Mitchell (on Facebook, 3-20-17): "We
love you Donald Trump. Hold your head high. Do not let the racists
bother you. I just seen something that made me very sad on here. Thank
you for saving this country from Radical Islam. You know if anymore come
on this soil there will be a war. The little man will fight. We see
My response: "Miranda,
the racists don't bother Donald. They voted for him. They're the ones
supporting him. So you have nothing to worry about, Miranda. And I hope
you're right about the midgets fighting. I think that will entertain a
lot of people and lift our spirits."
Farruh Standridge (on Facebook, 3-20-17): "I
wake up everyday knowing Hillary lost and lost badly, and that my
friend brings a smile to my face! Happy Monday Mr President. Are we done
deporting these illegals outta here yet? If not, keep deporting them!"
My response: "Farruh,
every day your friend delivers a smile to your face? Is the delivery
the same time each day, or does your friend try to surprise you? Does
your friend deliver smiles to others too? There are a lot of people who
could use a smile. For example, those who will lose their health care.
Also, women. Also, transgender folks. Also, the elderly. I think it's
wonderful that your friend brings a smile to your face, and I hope he or
she expands that service."
Wannetta Collins (on Facebook, 3-24-17): "Look
at all the communist trolls on here WE THE PEOPLE support Trump the
Marxist democrats hate America they can"t even support our Troops"
My response: "Wannetta,
without proper punctuation, your comment could mean a lot of things.
For example, are you saying Trump is a Marxist? It sounds like it. You
should probably take some kind of English class."
Diane Johnson (on Facebook, 3-24-17): "Donald
Trump is truly the people's president. Instead of hosting entertainers
and sports figures as was done by the previous.... President Trump
hosts real Americans. Today was no exception as he honored these
wonderful, courageous hero's."
My response: "Diane
Johnson, Donald Trump desperately wants to host famous entertainers.
But those folks want absolutely nothing to do with this asshole. Also,
why did you put an apostrophe in 'heroes'?"
On March 29th, I posted my daily alternative fact on Melania Trump's Facebook page: "Today's
alternative fact (to help you get through the day): Melania Trump is in
love with Donald and swears she misses him every moment they are apart.
Furthermore, she denies accusations that she is still a prostitute and
that Donald is simply her biggest client. 'That's absurd,' she says. 'At
this point, he wouldn't be able to afford me anyway.'"
I wasn't trying to engage anyone, but some people responded anyway.
Catherine Carrasco: "Trashy people talk trash."
(Interestingly, she also liked my comment.)
My response: "Catherine Carrasco, do funny people talk fun? Do silly people talk sill? Do skinny people talk skin?"
Catherine Carrasco: "Michael Where not Elementary"
My response: "Catherine Carrasco, 'Where not Elementary'? What does that mean?"
Catherine Carrasco: "if you have any sense of class about you you will not talk about other people like that that's God's job to condemn not yours"
Kathy Columbo: "Freedom of speech used to defame a person's character, is not freedom. Instead, it is taking one's liberties and abusing them."
My response: "Kathy Colombo, I like to abuse my liberties at least a few times a week. You know, whenever I'm lonely."
Sandy Bratcher Osborne: "You will always be lonely because you have a ugly ugly heart and aren't very bright. Also your rude sarcasm isn't very good."
My response: "Sandy
Bratcher Osborne, I love that you included a grammatical error in the
sentence where you accused someone else of not being bright. You're
Kathy Columbo: "Michael Doherty Good for you. Looks like your trolling got you the attention you sought."
My response: "Kathy
Colombo, I call an end to the use of the word 'troll' online, unless,
of course, you're talking about Dungeons & Dragons or Lord Of The
Kathy Columbo: " Michael
Doherty Well, I guess you can't control the narrative because you are
what you are - Sorry, trolls are not just for D&D, LOTR, Harry
Potter, or children's fairy tales - you are now one too. 'One who
purposely and deliberately (that purpose usually
being self-amusement) starts an argument in a manner which attacks
others on a forum without in any way listening to the arguments proposed
by his or her peers.' There are other less socially appropriate words
that could be used for someone who is just being purposefully snarky and
sarcastically problematic, but I think troll works just fine."
My response: "Kathy,
wrong. People use 'troll' for anyone who has an opinion that's
different from their own. And it seems to be only folks on the right who
use it. The same people who use non-words like 'libtard.' Also, I
wasn't trying to start an argument. I was just offering a bit of humor
while making a point. Those who argue with it are those who don't take
it in the spirit it's offered, and only then has an argument started."
Anita Bruce: "Nothing
like a common classless thug like Michael Doherty to pass judgement on a
lady who has never done him harm. What a puking bully you are. I hope
all the hate you spew comes right back to you. Remember your own words
when karma comes to school you, filthy troll."
My response: "Anita Bruce, you spelled 'judgment' wrong. And also apparently you neglected to read the bit about 'troll,' you humorless hag."
Emily Taylor: "Michael Doherty = MORON."
My response: "Emily Taylor, wrong. But thanks for playing. Also, don't use all capital letters. It makes you seem desperate and insecure."
My final response to these people, but specifically to Anita Bruce: "One
last thing: I find it amusing how easily you folks get upset. And how
quick you are to jump to conclusions. After all, for example, Anita, you
have no idea if Melania Trump has done me harm. Perhaps she and I met
once and she overcharged me."
