Jesus do you need the damn joke broken down for you?
Please don't call me Jesus, it's really more an inside name for my apostles. If you are one of my apostles, you might have missed that we switched to a smarcard based authentication system recently (it's two-factor!). Thanks for considering.
do you need the damn joke broken down for you?
Apparently so. Note that this doesn't necessarily mean that I'm extraordinarily dumb, it might just mean your joke was extraordinarily bad.
You said they didn't have the resources. Now that Trump is elected they magically have the resources from donations.
No, now they're pretty non-magically starting to raise money for the mirror.
Why didn't they do it before?
Who knows, maybe nobody gave a shit? Maybe it was on their TODO list for ages? Maybe they were reasonably convinced that the previous government did not pose a danger to their project?
Because Trump wasn't elected yet and they couldn't scare people into irrationally thinking the president elect had magical internet erasing powers
I can think of a ton of other excuses they could have used to scare people into donating for an outside-US mirror, well before Trump.
Well one of the candidates did, ha-ha-ha that's a joke too, get it? Please don't make me explain this one too.
As a German, I lack any sense of humor, so please do. Well, provided this joke isn't as crappy as your previous attempt at humor. You might also want to note that the US doesn't cover the entire planet and adjust your assumptions accordingly wrt. how familiar I am with - or how few actual fucks I give about - the details of this election that go beyond "who did actually end up getting elected".
Democrats were using fear of Trump (Racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, inexperienced, etc, ad nauseum) to garner votes. It didn't work.
That's, like, very interesting.
Now that he's actually been elected (You mean the mother fucker won?!?!? (This is a reference to a bit by Eddie Murphy about elections (also a joke.)))
Since this is the first of your jokes that I immediately "get", and since it's pure shit and didn't even make me twitch, I'll take it as the baseline of your joke quality.
Ok. Or maybe people don't trust in that everything going on in the US government is completely legit and happens 100% in compliance with the laws and the constitution (Film at fucking eleven). Nobody has a faint clue what your shiny new president is going to do, or to try. Everybody knows that if a govenment really wants something, it tends to find a way to make it happen. So in the light of this unpredictability, I'd say it's a justified, precautionary move.
