The last 24 hours have been a lot of things for Donald Trump, his campaign and the American people. The words that describe it best are devastating, crushing, revealing, disgusting, eye-opening and a whole host of other terms and phrases that are fairly severe in nature. To Trump and the deplorables, the word used to describe what we’re calling “gropegate” is quite a bit different:
Certainly has been an interesting 24 hours!

Interesting? That wasn’t quite what the rest of us had in mind. And brushing it off with an exclamation point isn’t going to help. Yes, we’re sure you’re referring to the super-secret squirrel email dump from Wikileaks that “exposed” Hillary Clinton for giving speeches we know she gave and for wanting continental unity that would be nice for our society and our planet. That’s not at all what people care about, though, is it, Donald?
No…People are tired of hearing your disgusting voice say reprehensible things. It never ends and quite frankly, we’re just tired of it.
What’s really interesting is that this scandal seems to have exposed just who actually follows Donald Trump on Twitter. With more than 11 million followers, you’d think there would be unwavering support from his minions, jumping up and down and shouting “emails!” at the top of their virtual lungs. That’s just no the case.
The reality is that more people follow him to poke fun at him for being stupid and deplorable than actually give a crap about the bucket of piss he’s trying to sell to the American people as the fine wine of change.
Here’s a little preview of the kind of abuse he’s taking on Twitter for being…him. You’re gonna want to go check it out for yourself, though. It’s pretty hilarious:
Social media filled with anti-Trump remarks. You just killed your daughter’s brand, you know, the one you want to date? @realDonaldTrump

@realDonaldTrump “Fake remorse over. Hand me my phone.”

@realDonaldTrump Do you think the apology would have been more sincere if you hadn’t read it off an autocue? And are you a deranged sexcase?

@realDonaldTrump making a joke about your horrible comments. That should quiet things down!

It truly is relentless and one-sided, showing that there is still hope for society to not devolve into a Trump-inspired real-life idiocracy.
