It has been TWO SOLID DAYS since Wonkette wrote about how Americans think Donald Trump is a failure who can't govern, who can't spell, and who does other stuff bad too! Last time, it was that Trump is finally losing the Walmart cousinfucker white man cohort that supposedly "elected" him in the first place. The time just before that -- which was just over a week ago -- we looked at how America wasn't buying what President Con Man was selling with his threats to declare a NATIONAL EMERGY over WALL, and that America correctly blamed Trump for the shutdown.

Oh, also, his approval rating was like 37 percent overall.

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll shows that Trump's approval rating remains in the shitter, where it will always remain, clocking in at a solid 40 percent, which is basically the same as 37 percent, as statistics and margins of error go. But this new poll asks some different questions, on top of the normal "On a scale of one to infinity, how many words do you think the president of the United States knows? Is it five, 15, or 16 if you count BIGLY?" This one specifically asked how Americans feel about having a man who is most likely a literal actual compromised Russian intelligence asset in the White House.

This is the takeaway from that:

That's right, in a poll where 40 percent of the people said they approved of the job the president is doing, almost a quarter of that 40 percent allows for the possibility that Putin is literally controlling the president. We don't know if those folks are saying maybe that's not such a bad thing, or if they're just that far gone (22 far right House Republicans just voted against a bill to reaffirm support for NATO, after all), but that number seems significant to us!

Meanwhile, 57 percent -- the same number of folks who hate the motherfucker's ass -- are pretty sure Putin has something on Trump.

As for WALL, and the associated Trump shutdown, here's a really fucked up number, if you're Donald Trump, or if you're the Stephen Miller whose job it is to keep his grundle cool and breezy as he sleeps, ALLEGEDLY:

While 43 percent support the construction of a border wall — compared to 49 percent who oppose construction — only 7 percent of voters said that they support dedicating funding to a border wall if it was the only way to end the government shutdown.

That's compared to 72 percent who oppose dedicating funding to a border wall if it was the only way.

It's a strangely worded question, but don't worry, the pollsters asked it a bunch of ways and gave respondents a bunch of options, so it looks like a solid number to us. Maybe a bunch of Trump supporters who aren't into America paying for the wall actually remember how Trump's promise was that Mexico was going to pay for the wall, something that (factcheck) Mexico is never fucking doing.

Hell, even when it's not WALL, but just "border security," only 34 percent of Americans support giving President Wall Baby money for that as ransom money to reopen the government.

Guys, we think Nancy Pelosi is winning this fight. BIGLY.

Some deeper numbers:

  • Trump's support is soft and weak and small like his hands when you break the numbers down. Only 21 percent strongly approve of the job he's doing. The strongly disapprove number, on the other hand, is 45 percent.
  • Speaking of soft and weak, if the 2020 election were held today, only 24 percent of Americans would definitely vote for Trump, with another 11 percent saying they guess MAYBE. Meanwhile 49 percent are solid "no" votes, with another eight percent saying probably not. Add those up and you get Trump losing 57 to 35 in the popular vote. That would be a fucking BLOWOUT for Kamala Harris or whichever Kamala Harris gets the Democratic nomination to be the next person in America to be known as President Kamala Harris.
  • Speaking of Kamala Harris, if the Democratic primary were held today, "Don't know/no opinion" is holding strong as the frontrunner! Relax, everyone, she only just announced her candidacy five seconds ago.

And that, gentle readers, is the latest news on how much everybody haaaaate Donald Trump and hopes he stubs his toe a lot today. We'll update you when his numbers get worse, like on Friday or whatever!

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.
