The official "let's impeach Trump" thread

I am not an Obama fan, but don't you understand why people were pleased that he was elected. Because it was a tacit acknowledgment that maybe the U.S. wasn't so racist after all. Is that hard to understand?

In any case he was a big disappointment because he turned out to be a shill for the establishment. Couldn't even stand up for his race when the epidemic of police shootings of unarmed blacks began. And kept us in war throughout his administration becoming a fan of drone attacks that killed many innocent people.
He left single payer off the table when he first went in to discuss healthcare reform. That was the start of my disillusionment.

Thriller confused bank account with brokerage account. The actual argument is that if Trump had simply put the millions he received from his father into S&P 500 funds he could have ended up with twice his current wealth. The argument stems from Warren Buffett’s famous advice for low information investors, i.e., that they regularly invest what they can save into a good S&P ETF then, over the decades, watch their wealth accumulate through the miracle of compounded earnings and the unrelenting power of a corporate biased economy.
That's a pretty big error on Thriller's part. He's really so financially illiterate that he thinks you could grow wealth of that magnitude and live a lavish lifestyle including helicopters and private planes with multiple divorces by investing in a savings account?

Now you’re just being a prick. He never said savings account. He said bank account. Many banks offer investment services. I clarified the type of account and detailed the argument. The point of the argument is push back against Trump’s claim to be a brilliant businessman by stating he could have generated much more wealth by simply following Warren Buffett’s advice and passively investing in an S&P 500 fund. That’s it. That’s the point Thriller was trying to make. You could have asked for clarification yourself, but you’d rather lie about what he said than get to the actual point.

That claim is unfounded. Why do people repeat it as if it's gospel truth? Not as bad as birth certificate, but...

Fortune Magazine (hardly a left leaning rag) agrees with it. Unfortunately, their... table? Graphic? Whatever it was in the middle is broken, but the text is still there.

Cool. Look at all the assumptions that go into these dumb ***, cherry picked estimates. They've all been shown to be bull ****. I notice Forbes didn't even bother giving theirs.

Let me start off with the first order of dumbassery to show how ridiculous this claim is. They're typically based on Trump inheriting a wholly inaccurate, wildly estimated figure in 1974. His father died in 1999.

You know what would dispel a lot of this confusion? Your Dear Leader releasing his taxes.

Why is he so against their release? What is he hiding? And why aren’t you concerned over this?

We all know Dear Leader’s most ardent defenders on this board would’ve never defended Obama or Clinton if they had refused to release their tax information.

So Trump allegedly inherited some mysterious lump of cash in 1974 cuz some article claims so, and voila, we can calculate a number sheerily from an index fund cuz is matches our purposes.

Forget the millions he spends on his lavish lifestyle and taxes and whatnot. That stuff doesn't factor into our magic number.

Y'all are dumbasses.

Yeah... Trump is really good at business. He's also really good at negotiating. He also has a really smart brain. He's a stable genius, at least that what this one guy (Trump) said.

The ****tard got handed hundreds of millions of dollars by his actually good at business dad. He had investment money in NYC and around the world for real estate projects. All this toddler had to do was sit back and wait for the the right investment opportunities to walk through the front door and beg him for money. He's decidedly mediocre, at best, at the easiest thing to make money at ever. When he's ventured outside that safe little bubble he's failed, over and over.

Trump is dumb. Like really ****ing dumb. He's the kind of billionaire who buys a golden toilet and puts ketchup on his well done steak. There's nothing more to say. The ****er is dumb.

There is a very big difference between spreading potentially true or untrue info like your "clarification" and demonstrably untrue information like what Thriller claimed.

Did dumb people become trumpers, attracted to his simplistic misogyny? Or did Trumpers, already simplistic misogynistic douchebags, become dumb people?

It’s just not a coincidence that the dumbest most low information posters throughout social media are always pro Trump. But which came first?
