The Week In Garbage Humans: 'Trump Curse' Prevented Lindsey Vonn From Getting A Medal

Trump

Given the events of the last week, I'm going to be steering clear of the usual manosphere forums I usually scan for this feature. I just... I can't. It's too sickening and too real, and I don't feel like making wisecracks right now about these people so close to seeing the real life consequences of their fucked-up belief system.


So, instead, we're gonna take a trip over to the equally toxic world of the r/The_Donald. Fun!

As you may know, some of the frothier Trump supporters are quite esoteric, believing that the Pepe the Frog is an avatar of the Egyptian god Kek, come to make Donald Trump GOD EMPEROR OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Or as they call him "GEOTUS." They hold many superstitions, one of which is the supposed "Trump curse," in which bad things happen to people who publicly disparage Donald Trump.

Thus, any time something bad happens to someone who has said something negative about Trump, they "reeeee!" with glee at seeing "proof" of the Trump curse in action. It is, they believe, the universe's way of making people understand that criticism of Trump is NOT ALLOWED.

The latest victim of this supposed curse, they claim, is Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. According to the Trumpists, the reason she did not get a medal this year was because back in January, she told CNN's Alpine edge that she was not representing Trump in the Olympics.

"Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president. I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony. I want to represent our country well. I don't think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that."

There were at least three threads on the subject, though most of the comments were variations on the same theme -- that this should be a lesson to sports stars and celebs to NEVER say anything bad about their precious Trump. Or else they will get KARMA'D!

The geniuses were out on Twitter as well.

Vonn, however, is not too worried about them, or about their idiot curses.

It is also pretty unlikely that any other athletes or celebs are going to start being afraid of criticizing Trump because of some "curse" invented by his supporters.

Anyway! This is now your open thread! Beware of curses and maybe drop some cash in our tip jar?

Fellow Wonkers, this last week of horror has been wearing on us all, because here we are in a world where the "president" of the United States has ordered that migrant children be taken away from their parents at the border, and is simultaneously proud of it (for his base) and cravenly blaming it on Democrats because even he knows it's morally reprehensible. But what the hell can we do about it, we are all keening, beyond calling our senators and representatives and posting sadness on Twitter, the latter of which is of dubious utility to anyone, and mostly depressing?

There are perks to being the only Harvard professor willing to shill for the Bush League Mussolini. Everyone else has to haul ass to the Fox studio and sit for hair and makeup. Not Alan Dershowitz! He just parks his laptop in Pee Wee's playhouse and Skypes in that rant. Is he even wearing pants? We hope never to find out!
