Mark Zuckerberg Finally Figured Out Why Trump Won; Hint: It Wasn't Russia

Tyler Durden's picture

Mark Zuckerberg, the 30-something billionaire founder of Facebook, hasn't lived a 'normal' least not at any point in the recent past.  He grew up in a suburb of New York City and now hobnobs with the elites of Silicon Valley, at least when he's not enjoying that massive chunk of Kauai that he recently purchased for his own private use.

So what do you do when you've become completely disconnected from the 'foreign' world that all of middle America calls 'reality' and have no idea why you just got massively blindsided by a national election that you thought was a foregone conclusion?  Well, you take a trip to Williston, North Dakota.

As Zuckerberg apparently learned for the first time while visiting oil workers in a tiny North Dakota town, there are entire industries that exist outside of Silicon that provide great wages and support thousands of American families.  And, as it turns out, those people are sick and tired of having their jobs threatened by their own government and being demonized by Hollywood liberals for their efforts to provide economical access to energy.

Zuckerberg shared his full thoughts in a Facebook post:

The invention of new techniques to fracture rock (fracking) to extract oil led to a boom where tens of thousands of workers moved from all around the country to pursue new jobs in this industry.


They come here because these are good jobs where people with a high school diploma can make $100,000 a year.


When the Dakota Access Pipeline was approved, that removed $6-7 per barrel of cost from producing oil in the region, which brought more investment and jobs here. A number of people told me they had felt their livelihood was blocked by the government, but when Trump approved the pipeline they felt a sense of hope again. That word "hope" came up many times around this. One person told me the night the pipeline was approved, people lit fireworks and rode trucks with American flags down Main Street to celebrate.


Many people I talked to here acknowledged this, but also feel a sense of pride that their work contributes to serving real needs we all have every day -- keeping our homes warm, getting to work, feeding us, and more. They believe competition from new sources of energy is good, but from their perspective, until renewables can provide most of our energy at scale, they are providing an important service we all rely on, and they wish they'd stop being demonized for it.



Of course, Zuckerberg also took the opportunity to cast the men he met as just a bunch of misogynist criminals...

This sudden influx of mostly men tripled the size of the town in just a few years. When oil prices dropped, some of this industry left and so did many people. This has led to some unique community dynamics.


First, the ratio of men to women in the city is now 10:1. That's actually lower than 30:1 at its peak.


The women I met said they feel safe, but they had unique stories. Some told me about finding out their boyfriends had families back home.


This gender imbalance has led to crime though. It is well-documented across the world that societies with many more men than women have more crime.

...but, at least it's a start...

This filthy fucking Bolshevik jew better damn well run in 2020. I want Trump to break Washington's record of getting every state's electoral votes.

He could have turned a trick or two while he was there and made a real contribution to morale.

You can tell the newbie on the rig by the clean overalls and stupid grin.

Hopefully one of the vets hit him up for a loan...or at least some startup cash for a new internet porn venture.

Welcome to the 60% of the country that you had no idea existed, Zuck. We have a thing or two on our minds and we're well armed. Geddit?

Women don't need men who work. They can suck off the government without all the hassles. Moral crimes if not Federal crimes.

Zuck discovered that women are pussies

I'm sure someone lost their job over his coveralls not being ironed.

The pic would have been a great caption contest.

Meanwhile, today Trump admits he has no intention of actually building a wall.  Go figure.'s picture

The jew is starting to dive seriously into politics.

Don't be surprise if the rumors he'll run for office will turn to be true.

It happened to others also.

Kid Rock is Running For Senate – And Maybe You Should Run for Public Office Too

GeezerGeek's picture

The current crop of politicians - mostly lawyers - hasn't provided anything to help We the People. Holds true for female lawyers too. Not that I like Zuck, his methods or his ideals, but at least he isn't a lawyer. And is Kid Rock likely to be as disappointing as Little Marco in the Senate?

I vote for idiocracy, as long as it doesn't include fascism/progressivism/bolshevism or any other form of big government.

Make Americans Free Again.

He looks like he must be about 95# soaking wet. He's swimming in those overalls. Pencil necked geek indeed.

"You mean there's ACTUALLY oil under this ground?"

"Yep, a few miles down and about a mile thataway."

"Why did they put it so far down?"

<Zuckerberg gets punched in the face>

One's hoodie is black, the other Red and Green. Gotham will be safe. Everything is awesome!

Here's some Zuckerburg Body language. Worth 10 minutes especially if you want to see the rat fuck sweat.

Hey, Mark... Fuck you, biaatch! I don't use your shit product and never will.

Miner's picture

Spot on.  He's getting in front of people and putting is face out there in a non-facebook way.  He's going to run for sure.

helloimjohnnycat's picture

If / When he runs for office, that propped-up joo-fukk will need more than a hard hat .

He'll need something covering his nosy, NSA-sponsored / funded schnozzola.

I hate walls. Trump either didn't understand the situation, or was just using it as a football. We are not being flooded with Mexicans, and many are leaving. The only thing new is that they are getting pampered excessively now.

Someday Americans may find themselves fleeing to Mexico. Especially if the Big One Hits on the West Coast.

Zero_Ledge's picture

you're a faggot, so there.  Nyeh, nyeh, nyeh.  :P

Hint... Who needs a wall when you have a minefield? That is just my innovative way of dealing with the problem. I didn't really need to tell you that though?

I'm pretty sure he's been touring flyover America just to figure out exactly what lies to tell the people who live there when he's running for President.

I think he's setting up to be a benign oligarchic technocrat dictatorship but IS THIS FUCKING IRONIC OR WHAT?

The guy that build the engine that has amassed more human opinions, thoughts and feelings than anything in all of history.....

still can't see beyond his own office walls. He actually made a tool that makes humans, himself included, blind to everything but themselves.

Fucking gotta love it.

When is the last time a Jew held a job?  Why bother with the act?

poetic justice's picture

 It is the Jew Parasites who really are the Useless Eaters /Oxygen Thieves? They have never done an honest days work in their lives. Spend all their time leaching off the Goyim. Without their sycophants /useless idiouts to wipe their arses and snotty noses they would be out in the wilderness.

The scam is for the elitists to try and ingratiate themselves with the hoi polloi once again, coming out of their mansions to check out whats going on in the sticks, why didn't Hillary get elected in a landslide?...that sort of thing.

I've been watching this phenomenon.

It started with the Alinsky press sent like plagues of locusts after the election to places like Kansas, Michigan and Ohio. Then, the "elite of the elite" (people like David Brooks) found themselves "embarrassed" for one of his "friends" not knowing what a padrino sandwich is at one of his favorite delis and taking her to a Mexican restaurant where she was more "comfortable"...I have no he created an entire article around his/their snobbery.  

Now its Zuckerbergs turn, perhaps not knowing what BTU's is and would like to inform his elite friends of something called...fracking...apparently they didn't know what the hell that is either.

But muh servers will still run on windmills, won't they?! ;-)

techpriest's picture

I was a renewables researcher at one time, and funny enough, I remember when elite types would come in and talk about how they had this expectation that we were going to crank out some magic black boxes that were going to give 10 billion people an American lifestyle, with zero carbon emissions, and gluten free ;)

Dudes are delusional. If they really want sustainability they need to see how their Keynesian nonsense is causing the problem - get rid of the debt and the feminism and people will be happier, and incidentally the whole planet will be better off.

nmewn's picture

Yeah thats the thing everyone needs to be careful about, the Keynesians don't really give a damn about the planet or people. They are part of the "locust swarm" swooping in for the quick buck riding the "green wave" in debt money...and there is nothing sustainable about that.

I don't think anyone is against renewables, solar or windmills but the practical among us know it has its place in the energy complex, its not going to replace nuclear or "fossil" or hydro even as we know those come with their own set of issues too. 

The best analogy that fits for me is, its like a sailboat. 

Velocitor's picture

Yeah, I love it when I hear people talk about wind/solar/etc  REPLACING hydrocarbons. Sorry, folks- you're NEVER going to see a solar-powered fighter jet.

thinkmoretalkless's picture

My question is, did he walk there?

SoDamnMad's picture

I sure hope he flew there in one of those solar powered airplanes. It would be a shame if he had to ask a working man for some fossil fuel to get home.

Creating some three year old examples of him among the people for when he decides to run for office. This way, when people start (correctly) calling him out for having not ever spent any time around the working middle class straight white people he can't win without before announcing his candidacy, he can point to these photos and say hes been doing that shit for years.


Still do not understand why people are so enamored with this guy. Sure, he is very rich. Im sure he has a ton of cool shit. But he isn't that smart. All he did was steal an idea for a website from a couple people who recruited him to do web design, and made an improved version of their idea. Sounds like a fucking snake to me.

I wonder if his underwear is on backwards to match his coveralls?

curly's picture

best comment on the thread

he's not fooling any of the guys in the picture.

wonder why they didn't get him to put his hardhat on backwards for the pic.

and wonder if the overalls are tighter in the front crotch or back crotch.

J Jason Djfmam's picture

Maybe it's just his head that is on backwards.
