RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Picture of DJT[edit]

A newer picture of Donald Trump perhaps? — Dysk (contribs) 01:39, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Nah. I like black and white photos. Unless you have a photo of him as God-Emperor or Starfleet officer. Nerd (talk) 01:40, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
Would one of the bathrobe photos work out fine? TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 02:05, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

This article in general[edit]

Do we really need this article? There are gonna be maybe 3 candidates in this primary, none of the non-Trump candidates are terribly interesting (does anyone really care about Bill Weld?), and all of them are probably gonna be covered in other articles (2016 GOP primary for Kasich, 2016 general for Weld). I don't see what in this article couldn't just be shoved into a blurb in the 2020 general election article when that comes out. This isn't even a real primary anyway, incumbent presidents are almost assured renomination, and Trump has the highest own-party approval since FDR or thereabouts.

The dems have one, and fair coverage dictates the gop has one too, at least for now. — Dysk (contribs) 22:19, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
@DysklyverAs I said earlier, this isn't a real primary, Trump is all but assured re-nomination. Even among RW tradition, I'd note that we don't have a 2012 Democratic Primary article, and that was as real of a primary as this is. We're not Wikipedia, we don't claim to be objective, there's no reason for this to exist. ClintWayne (talk) 02:51, 24 February 2019 (UTC)ClintWayne
Reality is surprising. Something might happen. If, by the RNC, nothing has happened, then we can delete this. But for now, I'm inclined to keep. RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:00, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
Trust me; if DJT & Mike Pence, God forbid, met some unfortunate catastrophe on the eve of the 2020 convention - non of these other candidates would be the GOP standard bearer, regardless of how many votes or convention delegates they may get. That's not how the American system works.
Sanford and Walsh are trying to rehab their reputations and become liberal media darlings, ala John McCain 2000-2007 and 2009-2019. Weld is a swamp rat and fix-it man in bed with Mueller, Barr, and Durham. Nikki HaleyWikipedia and Dan CrenshawWikipedia are best positioned as GOP heirs in a post-Trump era. nobsDie fascists!
