Sometimes, you just have to see it to believe it.
That’s pretty much the only way to describe this “comedy” segment from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert featuring Triumph, The Insult Comic Dog. The premise is brilliant; gather Trump supporters for a “focus group” to get their reaction and input on new Trump campaign ads.
What they don’t know is the all the ads and quotes are entirely, outrageously fake.
We’ve all seen these people; we all know, that all they know is what Fox News tells them and the cheeto-in-chief. We know his base, though overwhelmingly conservative Christians, has sold their souls to a false idol who they can see with their own eyes breaking every commandment without remorse or repentance. And as for “loving his neighbor as himself?”
So this Trumpster focus group is gonna be fuckin hilarious!
In the face of 200K deaths from COVID19 in America (half of which are Republicans, statistically speaking,) these people still refuse to take three simple, inexpensive steps, (wear a mask, stay apart, wash hands frequently) to stop the spread of sickness and death. The months of pleading with them to “do it to protect others” haven’t fallen on deaf ears.
What has become obvious is Trump supporters don’t care. They’re devoted because they realized (long before we did), Trump doesn’t care.
