Time for another Funtimes With Polls post! The top line result of a new poll out from Quinnipiac is that everybody still hates Donald Trump, EVEN THOUGH he did boom booms to Syria, and EVEN THOUGH a majority of Americans actually approved of those boom booms. Trump might have given the idiot media a thrill up its leg with that missile strike, and MSNBC’s Brian Williams might have been like “GIGGLE JIZZ, BOMBS IS PURTY,” but at the end of the day the strike seems not to have changed Americans’ minds on whether Trump is unhinged or has tiny hands or sucks at life, or anything like that.

Is it possible we liberals, alarmed that Trump will try to use some sort of attack (real or imagined) to consolidate power like a common Vladimir Hitler, have been worried about nothing? Could Trump be so weak and sad and pathetic that no matter what happens, Americans will always recognize that the fuck-up in the White House is still a fuck-up, and a shitty one at that?

The last time we told you about a poll, it was Gallup at the beginning of this month. Trump’s approval rating was 36%, which is only slightly more popular than getting buried alive with all of Bill O’Reilly’s used falafel things. At the time, Quinnipiac had Trump at 35%. Trump has actually gained in this latest Quinnipiac poll, but not very much:

American voters say 61 – 31 percent President Donald Trump’s decision to launch a missile strike in Syria was the right decision, giving him a slight lift in his job approval rating, although it still is a negative 40 – 56 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Shorter America: ANY DUMB FUCKER CAN DO BOMBS. Hilariously, though, when asked if Trump’s bombing would actually be effective in stopping Syria from doing chemical weapons, 62% of Americans were like “LOL nah,” so we guess there’s a whole third of the nation that just gets a boner when we drop bombs, and gives zero fucks whether those bombings achieve any sort of goals. GO BOOM!

Only 39% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Donald Trump, as a human, and everybody still hates him for all the other reasons that are not GO BOOM:

American voters’ opinions of some of Trump’s personal qualities are still mostly negative:

58 – 37 percent that he is not honest, compared to 61 – 34 percent April 4;
55 – 40 percent that he does not have good leadership skills, unchanged;
57 – 42 percent that he does not care about average Americans, little change;
63 – 33 percent that he is not level-headed, compared to 66 – 29 percent;

And 100% of Americans agree that the thing on top of Donald Trump’s head looks like a syphilitic beaver pelt from an ugly dork beaver that isn’t even good at sports, according to an exclusive Wonkette poll we just made up in our brain.

Now, if we may share you a graphic from Quinnipiac, showing the fluctuations of Trump’s approval rating since he has become president:

It kind of veers around between 35 and 42 percent, depending on whether Americans had a good morning shit that day.

Now, if we may share you a couple of New York Times dicks, being New York Times dicks, acting all “Good news for Trump! PIVOT! We are real journalists!” This happened Tuesday, before the new Quinnipiac poll came out:

It’s true that in the Quinnipiac poll, Trump has an 87% approval rating among dumbass Republicans. It’s not really true that Trump is moving much in Gallup’s daily tracking poll. But woo hoo, let’s get SO ‘SCITED that a president whose popularity hovers somewhere between dick cheese and anal fissures has the approval of most Republicans. We guess they’re the only Real Americans who matter, right?

To be fair, Maggie Haberman isn’t really a dick. But she works for the NYT, which always turns people a little bit stupid. You cannot hang around Maureen Dowd and Ross Douthat without a few of your brain cells getting murdered to death, especially if MoDo brought “brownies from home” that day.

Let’s find out if Jeremy Peters is a dick, by checking to see what he’s tweeted lately:

Oh fuck you, you flaming fuck tentacle from the outer rings of hell. Jon Ossoff lives just outside his district, because he and his girlfriend moved there so she could GO TO SCHOOL, which is apparently something Jeremy Peters needs to do. Ossoff grew up in the district, and he said if he wins, he’s a-movin’ right back.

And no, nobody is talking about Chelsea 2020, but nice try.

This post was originally about a Quinnipiac poll, but then it turned into “Hey look at this stupid New York Times asshole,” because that’s just how things are sometimes.

        This is VERY IMPORTANT TO DONNIE

        ” I was hanging out in a freshman dorm with some friends, next door to Donald Jr.’s room. I walked out of the room to find Donald Trump at his son’s door, there to pick him up for a baseball game. There were quite a few students standing around watching, trying to catch a glimpse of the famed real estate magnate. Don Jr. opened the door, wearing a Yankee jersey. Without saying a word, his father slapped him across the face, knocking him to the floor in front of all his classmates. He simply said “put on a suit and meet me outside,” and closed the door. ”

    • Jennaratrix

      I’m not sure that’s true; I think he cares a great deal about what people think, based on his pathetic tweeting, and part of the reason he’s so desperate for money is that’s what he values; he likes people who are rich, and figures if he’s rich, people will like him, too. Note the refusal to release his tax returns; my theory (as well as many other people’s) is that he has nowhere near as much money as he’s claimed, and he thinks that people will look down on him and not like him if they find that out. He’s an insecure, pathetic, narcissistic loser who by dumb luck and his father’s criminal efforts managed to raise himself in “society” far above what his meager talents can support, and is desperate for validation. In other words, probably the most dangerous kind of person to be in the position of power he holds.

    It appears Kim il Trump is not afraid of the threats he’s receiving from Littledigits via Tillerson.

    “By Ju-min Park | SEOUL 4/20/2017
    North Korean state media warned the United States of a “super-mighty preemptive strike” after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States was looking at ways to bring pressure to bear on North Korea over its nuclear programme.

    In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists’ invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes,” it said.

    Reclusive North Korea regularly threatens to destroy Japan, South Korea and the United States and has shown no let-up in its belligerence after a failed missile test on Sunday, a day after putting on a huge display of missiles at a parade in Pyongyang.]

        I’m subscribing to the Post and Mother Jones (AND WONKETTE!!!!)

        I use my ten-free monthly articles in the Times to read Paul Krugman, Charles Blow and the Arts section.

  • Mavenmaven

    Yemen, N. Korea, Iran, he’s already messed up in all those places, going back to Afghanistan would mean his big bomb was a failure, so what’s left? He’lll reinvade Vietnam!!!

    • Raan

      And then, try to convince us in the run-up to 2020 that he has a secret plan to defeat the Viet Cong Southeast Asian Muslim Extremists.

    • kareemachan

      And he’s po’ed NK, SK, Britain, France, Germany, Canada, and probably a lot of other countries already. He’s GOOD at pissing off our friends…..

  • Hey Peters…
    How much did the GOP spend to counter said candidate and their top 3 guys did not even make it close to his numbers?

  • Ricky Gay

    How do those NYT folk manage to wedge their typewriters into their cramped sphincters​?

  • Jack of the Resistance Tenhet

    Not really OT, was talking to my repub brother-in-law a few days ago and he actually said the following:

    “He’s just going to roll back everything Obama did.”

    I asked what he meant, we never talk politics and this came out of the blue. His response was:

    “All he’s done is sign executive orders trying to erase Obama’s presidency and it’s stupid. He’s gonna get us all killed.”

    Just a perspective from red state Mississippi and a conservative Catholic who voted for this guy. The tide is turning and people are waking up. Have faith.

    • Contemplative Ron

      Faith would be easier if the tide would speed the fuck up.

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      I tried to have Faith, but she was having none of it. So I jumped for Joy…

    I actually hate Little Pinch Sulzberger and the whole fucking New York Times, a whole lot, so thank you for reminding me of why I do.

    It’s still the best newspaper in America, and employs many of the best reporters in America. Yeah, we’re fucked.

    Trajectory is downward. Patience.

    • Bub, Zombie of the Resistance

      Is “plummeting vertically” considered a trajectory?

      • Yr. Gma

        Yes.

    Here’s what Little Donnie is worried about today instead of, say, jobs or North Korea or Syria or ISIS…

    • Bitter Scribe

      Do any of the people who called Obama “thin-skinned” even notice this stuff, or does it just fly right over their heads?

    • Bub, Zombie of the Resistance

      Priorities, Mr. President. Focus!

    • phoenix00

      Aww don’t blame the little child, he’s still not convinced he won the election.

  • Bub, Zombie of the Resistance

    And among Republicans his approval has held up remarkably well: high 80s.

    In other news, the popularity of sea lion pups among Great White sharks is holding steady, and the approval rating of pre-pubescent boys among Catholic priests is maintaining its traditionally high levels.

  • Panika MCD

    it’s not like Ossoff’s Lamar Smith who owns some kind of warehouse in his district I think and actually lives in New Hampshire when he’s not being a Congress turd.

    • Erala Contratista

      My SIL’s county supervisor at one time lived just up the hill from us. She lives 20 miles N and 4 cities away in a whole other county! He just got out of jail.
      Good times!

      • Panika MCD

        is county supervisor an elected position? ours isn’t.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    I am so glad now that I never got a subscription to the New York Times. I would feel like such a loser asshole if I had.

    And I don’t even like to do crossword puzzles, which many say is the only good thing in the Times.

    • Shibusa

      Well they did break the story about the $13 million FNC paid out to women that Bill O sexually harassed. He’d still be bloviating on air today if it weren’t for them.

  • Paperless Tiger

    I don’t think they voted for Trump because they like him. I think they did it just to piss me off.

    • dshwa

      I’ve seen enough “Look how mad libruls are hurt but hit,” to think that was an element in voting for him.

  • It makes sense that his support would remain strong among Republicans while dropping precipitously among sentient beings.

  • ConnieHinesDorothyProvine

    What was disgusting was how Brian Williams called the bombing “beautiful”.

  • Jeff Mc Donald

    Using facts in an argument with a conservative is like shooting an arrow at a rock. You waste a perfectly good arrow, but the rock really doesn’t notice much.

  • SeeTrain65

    Now that’s some New York Times-level New York Times asshole reporter, right there.

    Judy Miller, eat your heart out.

    The National Enquirer has worshipped Trumpy as god-emperor for a while now. Earlier this week Trump became the only Western leader to call and congratulate the Turkish dictator for prevailing in an election that international observers called dirty. Today’s Enquirer headline? “Trump declares war on dictators!” I thought maybe it was another 180 but no, just stupidity.

  • Truly Madly Derply

    Far be it from me to correct Evan, my dream date, but I would rank Trump’s popularity at precisely “dick cheese IN an anal fissure.”
