Stealing Together


The President has launched a new slogan for his 2020 re-election campaign: Stronger Together. 

I hate to rain on his parade (when everyone else is pouring buckets on his little pointed head), and again I don’t know why I care, but I have to say that this is not terribly original.  

After all, it is based, no not based, what’s the French term for this…oh yes, directly ripped off from the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign.

Why would you want to use this slogan?   Sure, Hillary garnered more popular votes than your Narcissistic Highness (sorry to burst your bubble), but I’m sure you noticed that it didn’t work for her!   She didn’t get the job! 

Seriously, you’re stealing an idea from someone you have condemned as a loser?

And when did we get stronger?  You try to grab credit for the strong economy, but seriously, couldn’t the economy still be feeling the effects of the Obama money policies?   And who are you trying to get together other than those Conrads* who show up at you gloat-fest rallies.  The rest of us who love American democracy?   Forget it!  We ain’t budging from our liberal ways.

It’s also vaguely plagiaristic.  Now I realize that this charge pales in comparison to some of the other Constitutional violations you’re being investigated, but what the hell!  Let’s throw another scandal log on the impeachment fire!

Perhaps you can avoid these tawdry accusations by adopting another inspirational, relevant and closer-to-the-truth slogan such as these suggestions:

CROOKS TOGETHER

INDICTED TOGETHER

JAILED TOGETHER

COLLUDING TOGETHER (sorry, I meant NOT COLLUDING TOGETHER)

STONEWALLING TOGETHER (ah, the kids won’t get this reference)

UNDERMINING AMERICAN DEMOCRACY TOGETHER

GOLDEN SHOWERS TOGETHER (the Moscow tape has to show up sooner or later)

KOWTOWING TO PUTIN TOGETHER

ONE TERM TOGETHER

Well, we liberals can dream, can’t we?

*An amalgamation of the term CONservative and RADical.  It also rhymes nicely with the term for those fellow travelers of the once and future Soviet Union: comrades. 

(Thank you for reading.  Shame on you, Mr. Plagiarist!)

That's fake news! Our president did not steal slogans from Crooked Hillary; Crooked Hillary plagiarized slogans from him! The fact that she LOST the election despite her espionage of Our Glorious Leader's marketing genius just goes to show how inappropriate she would have been for office.

I couldn't agree more, Bob.

Thank you Debra. It's derogatory and yet somehow gives the victim the impression (false) that they are in some way respectable.

Thank you Old Lurker. Sarcasm duly noted.

Did they really steal that slogan? I don't know. I basically try to avoid hearing about his rallies as much as possible... I want to keep my sanity.

Hi Dave R. Well, perhaps steal is too strong a term. Perhaps we should say that they "appropriated" it.

Thank you, Spo, and let's not forget how corrupt they are.
