A lot more than what Trump does (not that that's hard).

To slightly correct my earlier statement, they did not in fact endorse Biden. What they said was...

“When it comes to the response to the largest public health crisis of our time, our current political leaders have demonstrated that they are dangerously incompetent,” the editors wrote. “We should not abet them and enable the deaths of thousands more Americans by allowing them to keep their jobs.”

So... what they said was allowing the current political leaders (wonder who they're talking about there...) to keep their jobs is akin to aiding and abetting homicide... Which is probably stronger.

Especially since Trump is one of those current "leaders".



Took me three edits but it seems to work! Some great comments below: 

"Remember, Trump isn't a victim, he's the drunk driver."

"Trump isn't meeting a 'poetically ironic fate,' he's meeting a completely predicable one that multiple experts tried to warn him of, repeatedly."

"Potentially the first president to be assassinated by his own stupidity."

"Republicans are more upset about us saying trump deserves covid than they are about 211,000 Americans dying"

Posting videos is kind of sketchy here. What works for me 100% of the time is posting the embed code like this.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Tg7OVSIP6cg" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Then if you just click edit, and then submit it again its worked everytime for me.

That's what I did. First it was just the link, then I realized this forum didn't auto-format it so I embedded it. Didn't work, so I tried to edit it a second time but it automatically corrected it. Third try! 

Alas, yeah I think it's funny that Trump got Covid. Normally I'm the type to say nobody deserves death or suffering...but then I have to amend that statement by saying MOST people don't...most of the time. Anyone who deliberately downplays the danger of a global pandemic resulting in mass misinformation spread and gets the very same virus he convinced his cult wasn't a big deal is 100% deserving of it. He's indirectly responsible for 200,000+ deaths due to his unwillingness to take this shit seriously while in a position of ultimate power. 

Maybe if he understood Spider-Man he'd be smarter. with great power comes great responsibility. Unfortunately, he's more of a 'power corrups, absolute power corrupts absolutely'. He wants the fame and power, but none of the actual responsibility. 

He doesn't need to die, but he does need to go away.

Fun fact, but Uncle Ben never said that in the original comic. In Spidey's first adventure, it was actually just in a narration bubble. It got attributed to Uncle Ben later on.

HAHAHAHA "Trump's gone viral" made me laugh.

Ben Shapiro is an angry squirrel-muppet who doesn't understand basic sexuality.

Anyway, I miss Cracked. The site has gone to crap since the exodus.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Yeah, I used to love all their list articles about cool and interesting shit, now it's like one half-step better than buzzfeed. Get back to the mysteries mixed with humour! 

Nowadays I basically only go their for their photoplasty stuff, because infographics are still pretty educational and bite-sized enough to not test my patience.
