The media, failing to do their job again

There is a Donald Trump dating site, and this is the first I’ve heard of it?

I mean, it’s nothing new — it’s a barren wasteland of spam-bots, porn purveyors, and a few lonely journalists wondering what to make of it — so it’s just like his presidency-elect, but still, it would be nice to have advance warning of these comedic opportunities.

    Because a dating site bank rolled by an alleged rapist and pedophile is going to be a safe place for women looking for dates.

    “Goss was quick to clarify that it was not a safe space for Trump supporters. “It’s not a safe space but a comfortable space,” he tells Newsweek.”

    Wow. Even putting aside how comfortable is a higher bar than safe and it being cleared means safety is too, this is just such nonsense. The entire site was explicitly made so that Trump supporters could avoid hostility from people who disapprove of Trump. It’s a textbook safe space, with the one exception being that the people being excluded aren’t bigots who’ve done and continue to do real damage to the people in it but instead political opponents who are willing to criticize.

    The whois history is quite interesting.
    Six different hosts in one year, 28 records changed in a year, 5 different IP address changes in a year and oh, the registrar is GoDaddy.

    Even money, if I dug into the deeper history and whowas, I’ll eventually find a Russian heavily involved.

    “I think there’s a special stigma when people say they’re supporting Trump, because of some of the brash things that he’s said,”

    Brash things? Bullshit things, banal things, brutish things, yes, but brash just doesn’t quite capture it.

    Laughably, once Trump realizes that the site exists, he’ll sue. He’s very, very jealous of his brand name and none may use it.
    I’m surprised that he hasn’t tried to patent Pinochle, as it has a trump card.

    I’d be in hysterics if the electoral college actually voted against him. Just as long as they don’t elect me.
    On second thought, I’ll take it. Sanders can be my VP and once sworn in, I can resign and go back to the job I’m qualified for.
