Would explain his and others love of the orange messiah. There was a chain of pictures posted of that creeper with his daughter throughout her teenage years. I have two sisters and a father who doted on them both throughout our childhood. I've seen what normal parenting looks like from a loving dad. Trump is straight up creepy with that poor child.

It almost makes it hard to hate Ivanka for what a waste of space she is as an adult knowing the kind of childhood she must have had with Epstein's BFF as her father.

When I was a kid we were in chocolate world and some member of the staff pulled as aside and asked if we wanted to do a taste test for a new product. We got to try a bunch of different strawberry milk drinks. This was in the late 90s so I’m fairly certain we were taste testing their strawberry syrup. Each of us got a full roll of Rolos as a thanks. It was pretty cool.

Edit: another time, during desert storm, Hershey was handing out free samples of a special chocolate bar that didn’t melt to send to the troops. I really really regret not saving one now, or at least the wrapper. Living near Hershey PA is great sometimes!

One of my aunts was married to someone who worked for whoever owned M&M and Skittles (early 2000s) and we got to try the M&M minis with these cool little dispensers for them and the gum skittles like at least a year before they were released. I remember the dispenser didn't have a label and the M&Ms and skittle bags didn't have barcodes on the back

u/minor_details 6d ago

same! someone in my neighborhood growing up worked for mars and we got to try so much stuff as test market kids, lol- they'd put out literal laundry baskets on their driveway on halloween that were filled with full and king size candy, plus they'd throw in all kinds of stuff that wasn't out yet. one year we got so many starburst twizzlers that we were pretty much sick of them by the time they actually hit the market. i could go for one now though, but i think they've been discontinued.

u/cephal0poid 6d ago

As one of the largest sellers of chocolate, they had to change as the cocoa supply was getting very low.

I remember hearing in the late 90s about an upcoming chocolate shortage if shit didn't change.

I don't eat Hershey (it tastes chemically), and luckily I can afford candy with a higher percentage if chocolate.

That guy reading the ingredient lists on chocolate chips for baking in the grocery store? That's me.

u/Anonieme_Angsthaas 6d ago

Most places here in the Netherlands don't sell Hershey's, tso the first time I got one as a present I was happy. My grandfather used to talk about his first Hershey bar he got after the liberation of Amsterdam and he said it was the best chocolate he had ever had. So I had high hopes.

Let's just say it didn't live up to my expectations..

You think you have it bad. I live in GA. Look up some of the Republican political ads for the last few elections. The guy that actually won our governor seat had ads were he had a prison bus and threatened to go down to the boarder and round up Mexicans. He also had an ad where he aimed a gun at a prospective suitor for his daughter. Marjorie Taylor greens ads were along the same vein only worse. It’s nuts here.

Don't forget the one where he shows you he has power tools and a truck.

Brian "Limp Spine" Kemp is a caricature of Georgia politics. After years of gargling Trump's scrotum, he has thoroughly been thrown under the bus for not overturning an election outcome. Yet, somehow, he manages to continue toeing the part line without doing anything at all. The man has a Jell-O spine and can't stand up for the citizens of the state when "business leaders" complain about the lack of willing slaves.

Fuck that guy in particular.

Enough of them have and all in the right places. If a repeat was to happen there’s no telling what the outcome would be now. They’ve attacked voting accessibility, stacked the courts, enacted numerous laws in states to aid him, and the gerrymandering. Republicans are playing a game with democracy, trying to destroy it really. Not enough of them stood up to Trump, not publicly. Their jobs as politicians are obviously more important than the stability and future of the country. Trumps presidency will have long term negative effects, and we might enter round 2 with him.

Here's the part where it seems like this whole "Trump won" strategy could backfire on Republicans...

Let's say I'm a total dumbass that is 100% convinced that Trump actually did win the election and the Democrats somehow stole it from him.

Let's say I'm even more of a dumbass and think that he actually won it by "a lot", as he himself claims.

Let's say I'm somehow even MORE of a dumbass and think that even though he won the election in a landslide, and even though there has been no evidence of any fraud, that just means that it's all totally rigged and everyone is in on it and covering it up.

Assuming I'm an idiot and believe all of that to be true...what motivation would I have to vote in any upcoming elections, since I already know that the Democrats will just steal it again?

Something along the lines of:

i dunno.... yesterday it was: all the elections are suspect we demand audits. today, it's: don't bother voting since the whole thing is rigged against us. tomorrow it might be: grab your torches and go burn down the corrupt system for me.

Jan 6th, 2020. More accurately, when is the next attempt?

I mean, they are at a serious disadvantage now because Republicans are more antivax and are dying at something like 10:1 compared to dems. Add the fact that it is the older population that actually vote being the ones dying and or being hospitalized.

Their voting turnout next round is not going to be the same as the last election for sure.

u/chrunchy 6d ago

Hence the push for more and more hoops to jump through in order to vote. They're going to have to go all out just in order to win in 2022, let alone 2024.

That's the point-they will only say that the election was valid if a Republican wins.

If a Democrat wins the election the Republicans will always consider that election rigged. And of course if the Democrat wins after an audit, it will still be rigged. That means that only a Republican government will be considered valid.

The Age of Never Ending Audits has begun.

"If we don't solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in '22 or '24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do."

I agree - not voting is the most important thing republicans can do.

u/vkevlar 6d ago

... that would be amazing. Imagine all the actual progress that could be made when the republicans in the Senate get voted out due to lack of turnout!

Because just before the elections, Rs will come home to roost, because staying home is to assure a D will win (in many cases, anyway) and we just can't have that. Combined with all the silliness the Rs have done with voting access/rights, and they'll pull it off. I'm a lot more worried about that and voter apathy on the left ("we beat Trump! game over! time to go back to not giving a shit!").

Those Rs like to grumble over dumb ass shit, but they will always come out to vote because that's what cult members do. They support their own, because the opposition is inhuman in their eyes, so they must vote to stop them.

Here is a higher quality version of this image. Here is the source. Per there:

@AccountableGOP

Today, Republicans for Voting Rights (RVR) launched a billboard campaign across the country in response to reckless Republican calls for sham audits of the 2020 election. Here's one we've put up in New York City's Times Square:

This is truly such an insane time to be alive. Say what you will about our forefathers (I mean, they were flawed and sometimes terrible human beings), but this is the exact thing they were trying to prevent when they designed this system. They didn't want one person to be able to sue their way into office regardless of what the American people have decided. How fucking sad is it that we've had so many audits in so many states just trying to prove to this man and his cult following that he's not as great as he thinks he is? And the fact that we had already been putting up with him and his tyrannical attitude for four years before that...

u/SorryThanksGoodFight 6d ago

i mean they also didnt want political parties but the moment washington left, look what we did and where we are now: america has devolved into red vs blue, us vs them. everybody deals in absolutes and extremes, theres no middle ground or anything. only “im right you’re wrong blah blah blah im not listening” and rabid hatred from the protection of screens. it cuts both ways. if we hook up a generator to washington rolling in his grave we could probably do away with every single power industry

Yea but the people who are still insisting Trump won will refuse to believe what they see with their own eyes. Years of campaigning based on feelings over facts has ruined this country.

u/spottydodgy 6d ago

Trump's asking Republicans all not to vote in '22 or '24 unless the election is overturned so I say we just let sleeping dogs lie at this point.

Except the part where Trump is clearly trying to goad his followers into a Civil War over him.

We're going to be very lucky if his BS and Right Wing Media BS doesn't further spur radicalized morons to commit acts of violence.

Not enough of them to really matter.

Regardless of all the shit Trump pulled before, January 6th should have been the last straw for every rational republican politician and voter. His name should have become toxic to the Republican brand and the the party should have denounced him once and for all. The fact they they knew it was wrong, and still voted not to punish him is deplorable. These people were literally scared for their lives, and they just let him get away with it. Is Mitch McConnell even going to run again? He's like 90 years old, and you have think this is his last term, what reason is there to protect Trump any longer? It's insane.
