You know, there’s lots of reasons to not vote
for Donald Trump in 2020 whether you’re a
farmer hit by the trade war, whether you’re
a manufacturing worker laid off because of
the trade war, maybe you’re one of those people
just like me that was promised by Republicans
a 4 to $9,000 a year tax cut only to actually
see your taxes go up.
Lots of reasons out there.
Oh and let’s not forget obviously all the
crimes and the nepotism and you know all of
that, the debt exploding, the deficit exploding,
spending millions of dollars of our tax dollars
at your own company so you can put it back
in your pocket.
Yeah, lots of reasons to not vote for Donald
Trump, but none of those, our concerns to
Republican allies of the president, but they
are warning him right now that there is one
There is one issue, one thing he has done
that is likely to piss off enough voters to
cost him the 2020 election and that one thing
is the proposed ban on flavored E cigarettes.
Republican friends of the president, including
by the way, industry lobbyists for e-cigarette
companies are warning the president that there
are so many vapers in this country, particularly
in the areas that basically gave Trump the
If you ban it, boy, they’re not going to vote
for you ever again.
And here, according to Axios, is actually
how this lobbyist and these allies laid out
to the president himself.
How this vaping ban is going to effect Trump’s
They said, first you have these voters, they
start out as Trump voters.
They wouldn’t vape anymore if they couldn’t
get the flavors.
They are single issue voters around vaping
The eventual democratic nominee would be more
vape friendly than step five.
Boom, Democrats, we win because of the vapors.
Now I think Trump’s vaping ban the proposed
vaping ban is stupid.
I 100% think it’s stupid.
Yes, a couple of people have died and a ton
of people, hundreds of them got sick, but
it all happened like that instantaneously,
which to me suggests that perhaps there were
a couple of bad batches of vape juice out
there and that’s why it needs better, stricter
And yes, we do know the vaping companies make
these fruity little candy flavors to attract
We know that tobacco companies do the exact
There’s no question about that, but to outright
ban them, that’s not the right course of action.
You them in a store, first of all, you don’t
let them advertise these flavors.
You put them in a store where children have
no possibility of ever even seeing them, and
you’re going to help cut down on the problem
But overall, the biggest issue is that you’ve
got to have better regulation on the vapes,
on the e-cigarettes.
That’s what’s been missing from this whole
And to be honest, that’s what we’ve been talking
about for years here.
And whenever we suggest that the vapors get
pissed off and come at us saying, we’re in
the pocket of big tobacco.
No, technically you are because you do realize
who’s buying up most of these vape companies,
It’s big tobacco.
Look, this is not the issue that’s going to
cost Donald Trump 2020 I mean, maybe he’s
going to lose a few people because of the
vaping ban, but could you imagine as a voter
yourself being like that being the hill you’re
going to die on vaping like, Oh, well I know
he committed the treason and with the Ukraine,
you know, likely committed the treason with
the, with Russia, all of the obstruction of
justice, all the emoluments clause violations,
all of the horrible policies.
I’m okay with those.
Oh, he banned vaping.
See yeah, throwing this MAGA hat away.
I hope to God there’s nobody in the country
who’s like that and trust me, I don’t want
anybody to ever vote for Trump, but I don’t
ever want that to be the reason.
You’re not going to vote for Trump, if that
makes any sense, because that’s a really stupid
Hill to die on.
Trump has done a lot of horrible things, so,
so let’s maybe focus on those.
This vaping ban, yes, it is stupid, but if
you’re going to let that be the straw that
breaks the camel’s back, then what does that
say about you.
