Dear Wisconsin Harley-Davidson Workers: What In God’s Name Makes You Think Donald Trump Cares About You?

Don't believe his bullshit. If it looks like a moron and quacks like a moron, it's a moron.

    Why are you surprised by ignorance of workers. It is the norm , not the exception.

    Not only is it sad, but it speaks to the power of narrative over reality. H-D workers want their jobs but are happy with Trump’s tariffs. Greeks and Italians want economic growth but are happy with the EUR. This is only going to get worse as we march further into the post-truth world.

  3. The problem isn’t that Trump doesn’t give a damn about us beyond what we can do for him, if anything.

    The problem is that NO politician does. Lying and manipulation and con is the game, and Trump is one of today’s best…and Obama before him, and Bush, and Clinton, and Bush Sr., and Reagan, etc etc.

    So make your argument and call us idiots. Fine. This market is still getting what it deserves regardless.

      If the shoe fits.

      Seeing as the U.S. economy is doing better than it EVER has, and is projected to continue to do well for at least the next 3 years, it seems Trump knows a bit more about business than you and the fading concern known as Harley-Davidson. Let’s see how this tariff thing actually plays out before making silly claims that he doesn’t know what he’s doing. Also keep in mind, every president has made mistakes and Trump is no exception. What makes a president great is not how few mistakes he makes, but how he turns mistakes into success. Let us watch and see.

        Let’s see, 2.0% GDP in Q1, probably 2.8% Q2 (check out the latest Personal Income and Outlays), so 2.4% first half. And lets not forget falling middle class earning YoY. Yup, happy days are here again.

      • so assface says the economy has never been better — and FOX cheers his lie, as usual — and you buy it hook, line and sinker and you don’t stop there. You come here and make a ridiculous comment and support the lying bastard? You don’t have a clue as to what you speak of. You did select the most appropriate screen name because YouAreNotThatSmart.

        Here’s your test: name 3 things assface has done that is called a WIN. How much time will you need?
        Your next question is to name 3 reasons you don’t like President Obama, specific reasons, not the mouth mush you have used so far.

        tic toc …

          Let me guess for him

          black, black and oh yeah, black

          Sadly I doubt “not smart” is well rounded. Toggling between breitbart and sputnik does not give much of a world view.

        Omg..just shut the fuck up moron

  4. To compare Trump’s criminally insane behavior which is exclusively focused on enriching himself and his family, bolstering his name, brand and ego, and protecting himself from all law to “Obama before him, and Bush, and Clinton, and Bush Sr., and Reagan, etc etc., clearly misses the demonstrable overwhelming evidence that we don’t deal here with a “politician.” No!! We deal here with a criminal who managed to obtain the majority of the electoral votes and is operating a criminal enterprise shielded by and using the levers of power offered by the presidency.

    • drum roll, please . . . ♫ ♪ TA DA ♪ ♫

      Marty, you nailed it — again!

    • YouAreNotThatSmart

      Yet you have no evidence of anything you say. Seems to me you’re the crazy one.

      • Well, YouAreNotThatSmart, the evidence is palpable. There’s never been so much evidence demonstrating that I what I wrote happens to be the truth. Yet, no matter what I write, no matter what truth is set forth beyond a reasonable doubt to establish what is obvious to all with an open mind, someone like
        YouAreNotThatSmart, will hold on to their most tightly held views as though your views were your brains, balls and blood. And so I find having discussions with men named YouAreNotThatSmart, WhoAreNotThatSmart — and use language like “And you’re a fucking idiot,” to make a point, and hedges by saying it “seems Trump knows a bit more about business than you,” a man who has gone bankrupt five times, has been sued 3500 times and is a gloabally known liar and cheat — quite wasteful. So, arrivederci,YouAreNotThatSmart!!

    My wife said it 15 months ago when a pending ACA repeal was going to cost a friend some real money. “if you vote for the party of mean, don’t be surprised when they are mean to you”.

    • “I didn’t think they would fuck me over”, says man who voted for Fucking People Over Party.

    • YouAreNotThatSmart

      And yet there are people getting fucked over daily by Obama to this day and he hasn’t been in office for over year. What a great guy. And you’re a fucking idiot.

      • areader

        So people are people getting fucked over daily by Obama who hasn’t been in office for years, but Trump is killing on the economy the day he toke office. You are, not that smart.

  6. Yes, they should all stand and take the hit to their business, without complaint or effort to save their company – because that’s what Trump would have done in their place.

    Now Donald is threatening to completely destroy a company who he only partially destroyed with his tariffs? A company who supported him? A company that Americans love?

    He’s helping the Europeans make their targeted tariffs more successful? In a swing state?

    Yes I know his mind is tiny, but how tiny is it?

    Keep it up Donald – I guess — I hate to see an American Icon hurt, but if it wokes more voters….

    Jeeesshh.

  7. Excellent editorial and one that lays out the truth quite plain for all, of course these workers have the right to believe what they will but ignorance is never a virtue and anyone who remains so blind deserves what they get. Trump is the idiot we all feared but perhaps the saddest part is that he triumphed on the backs of the unwise who will now suffer the same misery and agony as the rest of us.

  8. We know his ‘successful business man’ history is pretty much all pretend, lie and cheat — here is a really fun to read piece about his 6 bankruptcies, short paragraph on each AND THEN at the bottom of the article you will find some trump thumbnail selections that will make your day! LOL! Each thumbnail story that you open and read is excellent and there are more thumbnails at the bottom of each of them. Too hard to pick a favorite! ENJOY!!

  9. The money shot one more time: “The men and women who build these famous American motorcycles are weighing the latest unintended consequence of Donald Trump’s presidency: the possibility they could lose their jobs because of a tit-for-tat trade war that has caught the Harley in its crossfire.” * * *. “[M]ost happily volunteer that they voted for Mr Trump and would do so again — tariffs or no tariffs.”

    I do not begrudge them their vote one bit.
    I do not feel sorry for them if they lose their job either.
    They do it for a cause they believe in.

    They are entitled to believe in Trump, whether it’s because of his views on race, immigration, trade and tariffs, tax cuts for the rich, bringing back the dreaded pre-existing exclusions clauses in insurance policies, doing away with medicaid for their grandparents, siblings, mothers and fathers, gutting health coverage, making sure workers can’t sue in class actions and are stuck with one sided arbitration proceedings, killing off unions, family leave, day care, minimum wage, and all the other fantastic benefits that rich folk love to make sure workers of America have first.
