If you're not surprised by anything Trump does at this point, why should anyone else be? The only people that are constantly surprised by Trumps depravity are fools and liars. I was already beyond enraged about the death toll back when it was at like 20,000... still in the beginning stages, while co...

Re: Trump's Greatest Quotes

A funny thing about all this is that I believe Trump is actually very easy to manipulate if you stroke his ego. Since he believes in nothing, he will do/support whatever it is you want if you're nice to him. Look at what Kim Kardashian was able to do with the lady she helped free from prison. Look a...

Re: Surprised I haven't seen anyone mention 'Search Party' here

You might like it then. It's about the search for a missing girl, so it has dark elements from the very beginning...even though I'd say the show is mostly light/comedic. But then it gets darker in unexpected ways, while somehow maintaining it's comedic elements. Weird show but I've enjoyed it so far.

I'd say the end of 'The Witch' was more of a self-fulfilling prophecy. The lesson was not simply that they were right all along(ironically), but that their underlying bigotries/paranoia(though manipulated/exacerbated by the devil) helped create the conditions that led to those fears coming true.
