A Children’s Treasury of Why Convincing Trumptards of the Facts is a Big Waste of Time: Exhibit A

Monday , 28, August 2017 2 Comments

While rescue efforts continue in Houston and Hurricane Harvey continues to drop trillions of gallons of water on the city, people do what comes naturally in the 21st Century – head on over to social media to politicize a real-time tragedy. Trumptards, real and bot, are no exception; except as usual they don’t worry about facts or brush up on history before thumbing their rage onto the interwebs.

This is what @MacMaggies deleted:

And finally:

If you expand the tweet threads, you will see well-intentioned people attempting to help these woefully ignorant Trump supporters. Hurricane Katrina made landfall over New Orleans twelve years ago, and they can’t remember who was president. Here’s a few hints.

That last photo happened about four days after the hurricane while people trapped in the city survived on rooftops and stadiums. President Bush was too busy attending birthday parties and being gifted with guitars to even mention anything to the press about what happened in New Orleans on August 30, 2005. This is the same GOP-groomed base who insist President Jefferson sent the Marines to Tripoli to eradicate Muslims instead of the pirates attacking American merchant ships. They can’t remember what happened in the last decade, probably just unfair to expect them to have a clue what happened two centuries ago.

We elected Barack Obama president in 2008.

If you’re still trying to figure out how anyone can be so stupid they think Obama was president in 2005, these people voted for Trump. That’s all the explanation you need.
