We can have fun without beating people! Now and then, maybe.

Donald Trump decided to try out a new/old strategy at a rally Wednesday on Long Island, New York, calling on his supporters not to beat the living shit out of a protester. Yes, that is what now counts for "news" in the 2016 campaign: Trump Supporters Do Not Tear Protester Limb From Limb.

[wonkbar]a href=""[/wonkbar]About 25 minutes into the speech Trump is interrupted by a protester, who's inaudible, but you can hear the crowd nearby shouting "Trump! Trump! Trump!" as instructed to, to drown them out. Instead of Trump's usual vehement "Get 'em outta here!" or any reminiscences of the good old days when you could send protesters away in a stretcher, Trump opted for sweetness and light, or at least his version of it. After asking the crowd, "You want him out?" Trump went along with popular opinion and only then said the applause line, "Get 'em out!" while strolling around the stage. Then, apparently deciding he wasn't in the mood to pay any legal fees, Trump added,

"Don't hurt the person, don't hurt the person, do not hurt the person, don’t hurt em, don’t hurt em," Trump said as a man with a red, white, and blue cowboy hat was removed, according to WABC. "Is a Trump rally the greatest?"

Trump stepped off to the side of the stage to say something to an aide -- it was inaudible, but we'll guess it was "Have him followed. Tonight he sleeps with the fishes." Just spitballing there. He then returned to the mic and lamented that no matter how he treats protesters, he gets unfair criticism from the terrible people in the biased media: "You know, I've done it all ways. When I'm like this, they say 'Trump is getting weaker!'" (They don't actually.) "When I'm tough, they say 'He's too tough!' You can't win."

Finally, Trump got on to the familiar campaign schtick he'd been about to get to before the interruption: a dramatic reading of the lyrics to Al Wilson's "The Snake," that great R&B warning about getting intimate with a venomous bastard you should have known better than to have gotten in bed with in the first place. Trump reframes it as an anti-immigration parable, because America lets all those rapists and killers come across the border since we're too tender-hearted. Also, with typical Trumpian accuracy, Trump attributes the song to "the great Al Green," who as far as we can tell never had a thing to do with the song, and never so much as covered it. Pfft. Who can tell these Blacks named "Al" apart, even?

Donald, let's NOT stay together.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
