I thank you for your opinions on Trump and such, but sadly the views of these people creating videos has a fatal flaw. They lump every issue, every disagreement, and every stupid move, into one category and give the impression that because someone likes Trump, that they also think alike or agree with everything he or his administration does. This couldn't be further from the truth. Look at the images they put as the video attraction, a man upset looking like he has lost his mind in anger... Suggesting all Trump supporters are like him... They're not. Nor are all Democrats who support Biden.
If Trump does something stupid, those that do not support him assume that everyone who votes Republican agrees... I find that to be hilarious. You may as well have posted an image of Homer Simpson, and suggested that all Trump voters look like Homer and drink beer.. As these videos do suggest they must all be knuckle dragging fools.
One could say the same for those who voted for Nancy Pelosi... (I did NOT thank you)...
I think this type of video is short sighted, and rather than hitting on issues, it is dividing the country into "Us against them" as far as people, rather than joining us towards resolving true issues. And it works.. As people do nothing more than look for the next big bashing video as if in a childhood argument, where one yells out the best insult. This country needs to grow up, and perhaps then, we can make some true , very much needed positive changes. Slinging insults won't help.... It just makes people looks shallow minded in my opinion..
Perhaps if the issues were all that were addressed it would be one thing... But I too, am tiring with all of the sub culture media doing the same thing the main stream media is. And they call it journalism. I want to ask them when the last time was that they actually took out a pen and paper and went somewhere to write what they truly saw, versus what they saw on the news, then giving their opinions. I want to ask about their fact checking procedures... Who they actually spoke to, etc.. Until that time, this is all propaganda to me. Perhaps they mean well, as this is what the schools are now teaching as "News Reporting"..
Re- regarding to regurgitating what they have been told or saw versus actually finding out for themselves. The news agencies have reporters, not journalists, or even investigators now. They all REPORT something told to them as relevant. It's a sad state of affairs.One need not even go to school anymore to maintain these careers, just be able to look pretty, project their voices properly, and read cue cards... Sad indeed...
