Thursday, August 08, 2019

President Donald Trump's promises to rural America haven't worked out well. He promised farmers that he would fight for them and get better trade deals. He failed. He then promised farmers that he would bail them out with a subsidy saving them from the trade war. He failed, giving the overwhelming majority of the subsidies to corporate farms, most of which aren't even in rural American.

You think anyone in Fat Nixon's cabinet gives a ---- about anyone outside the 1%?

His cabinet's sole purpose is to steal as much as they can before they are caught.

Say goodbye to Iowa, Donald. Say goodbye to Minnesota. You always thought farmers were losers anyway. You'll hardly miss these states in the Electoral College. Please contemplate your superiority on the way to prison.

'Chris Clayton, the ag policy editor for DTN, noted that Perdue tried to lighten the mood by telling a joke: "What do you call two farmers in a basement? A whine cellar.'

What kind of mindlessness leads someone to say such a thing to people's faces? Or at all? It's Trumpism-and a core feature of Trumpism is that anyone unhappy with Trump must, absolutely must be, unworthy.

Say goodbye to Iowa,

You are underestimating the power the GOP has over them. Every single policy the GOP implements hurts them in ways both large and small and they continually vote for them every single damn time.

Why? The culture politics of flag hugging, bible loving and gun -------.

Now they are going full dotard on voter disenfranchisement thinkprogress.org

They have publicly stated that even though they are getting crushed by his trade policies they would still vote for him.
