It boggles the mind that most of the people who support Trump NEVER criticize him or call him out on ANYTHING he says or does. No matter what it is, they are silent.
Donald Trump, the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, a mentally sick, child-like, vile human being can do and say anything and they don’t care! He can do no wrong.
He calls people names like a small child and THEY DON’T CARE!
He lies to them and THEY DON’T CARE!
He breaks the law and instructs others to break the law in exchange for pardons and THEY DON’T CARE!
He mocks the disabled, gold star families, princesses, and many others and THEY DON’T CARE!
He spreads hate and divides people and THEY DON’T CARE!
He sides with dictators over Americans and his own Intel people and THEY DON’T CARE!
It’s mind boggling!
What sane person would support someone like that and remain silent? People in a CULT do! His supporters have total blind devotion to him and never question anything he does or says.
People in cults have “a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.” (google dictionary definition)
Trump doesn’t have supporters. He has CULTISTS. Many refer to this phenomenon as the “Trump Cult.” Never in history has America had a political leader who has been so toxic with so many people worshiping him like he is some Messiah.
It is truly horrifying. This a dangerous time in America.
These Trump cultists are so brainless. With every new thing that comes out, they have some excuse or conspiracy. IE: The texts are fake, the spies are making stuff up, there is no actual whistle blower, It’s the ‘deep state.’ They talk about anyone and everything EXCEPT Trump and his actions in an attempt to distract.
There is slight problem with the ‘deep state/spy’ garbage:
1. It’s Trump’s own people, some who he appointed, who are exposing him.
2. The things that the ‘deep state’ and the ‘spies’ are accusing Trump of are things WE SEE TRUMP DOING, TWEETING OUT, TALKING ABOUT, AND ADMITTING TO! How are they “setting him up” when we all see him engage in the behaviors he is being accused of?? LOL LOL
We have a president who is mentally unstable, unfit for office, and a national security risk to this country. He has no concern for the laws of this country. He tells others to break the law in exchange for pardons. He lies at a level that is pathological.
The people around Trump see that! They also see him engage in illegal or unethical actions and leak it to the media. They have been doing that since he got elected. Same with the whistle blowers. They are people who are concerned about Trump’s behavior. That’s NOT a ‘deep state.’
The ideal situation would be for them ALL (both current and past administration officials) to come forward PUBLICLY with their concerns on how unfit he is but it doesn’t look like that will ever happen.
Is Trump a racist? No one knows for sure. What we do know for sure though, is that Trump appeals to racists. We know that his base consists of racists. We know that Trump does not condemn racists or racist ideology forcefully. We know that Trump says and tweets racist things to get his base riled up.
It’s true that not all Trump supporters are racist but many of them are. I don’t think we will ever know what exact percentage of Trump’s base is racist. His supporters like him for a variety of reasons. The hate and racism he spews is just one reason. We do have anecdotal evidence of his supporter’s racism.
Let’s take his recent rally where his supporters chanted “send her back” in reference to Rep. Omar. That is one example of something that occurred at one of his rallies. There is another example, at another rally, where one of his supporters said “shoot them” in response to how illegals should be dealt with.
Social media is the best example that gives A LOT of anecdotal evidence of Trump’s supporters racism. Face Book. Twitter. Message boards and comment sections of news articles. You can see the racism of those who support Trump. Look at the social media platforms you are part of and see for yourself. In my case, I see a lot of racist posts on Face Book in my news feed several times a week. Racist memes. Racist comments. Racist conspiracy theories. Racist posts. Many of these posts are of things, Trump has said and tweeted. His supporters parrot what he says.
There is a lot of anecdotal evidence showing that Trump’s supporters are racist or support what Trump spews out at rallies. Unfortunately, we will never know be able to know what percentage of his base holds those views.
Do Trump supporters have crap for brains or are they naturally stupid?
What will it take for Trump supporters to speak out against him? When will enough be enough?
Poor Barron. He would be so much better off without that vile sleaze for a father.
As the election gets closer, Trump will have KAG (Keep America Great) hats to replace the MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats. Apparently, America is great now! His cultists will have to buy the new KAG hats to replace their filthy MAGA ones.
Trump’s supporters would not be called cultists if they spoke out against some of the things he says and does. Most do not speak out.
Trump: mentally sick, unstable, unfit, immature, child like, vile, vulgar, hateful, a pathological liar, erratic, has no impulse control, spews hate, divides people, narcissistic, a demagogue, dangerous, a threat to national security. ….. and those are his good points!
What is it about the people around Trump who lie and cover up for him? We haven’t seen anything like this before.
Remember when America had a REAL president? It seems like a lifetime ago. Obama had such class and decency. He didn’t spew hate and racism. He didn’t divide people. He didn’t call people names or insult them. He knew how to unify people when there were tragedies. He didn’t have half his inner circle indicted. He wasn’t lawless and corrupt. He didn’t order people to break the law to get what he wants. It sure was nice!
The same goes for W. Bush, Clinton, H. W. Bush and every other president we have had. They all knew how to conduct themselves. They knew presidential norms. They knew about how government functions. If they didn’t know, their advisers, lawyers, and other cabinet members gave them advice which they actually listened to and followed!
It would be nice to have Obama back. Or W. Bush. Or any other past president! It would be nice if we could clone one of our past presidents to replace Trump! Any of them except Nixon. We have Nixon now with all the obstructing of justice and illegal acts being perpetrated by Trump.
These are depressing and scary times in this country with Trump as president. He is the complete opposite of every other president we have had. If it gets too depressing, consider watching clips of past presidents speaking on YouTube. Allow yourself to escape and remember the times when America had a REAL president.
After what we have been through since Trump got elected, can he actually win again? Can people be that stupid to vote in a mentally unstable demagogue for a second term??
The majority of Americans didn’t want Trump in 2016. They majority don’t want him in 2020. That doesn’t mean he wont win again though. If Trump wins again, it will be another ELECTORAL win. The sad truth is that there is a possibility of him winning a second term.
Trump has been losing Republican suburban voters in droves. It’s been a trend we have been seeing since the midterms. The recent election in NC District 9 resulted in the Republican candidate winning by a small margin. This is a district that has been strongly Republican since 1963! It’s not anymore and that is due to Trump losing suburban voters. Texas is now purple. Never in a million years would I have thought that a strong red, Republican state like Texas would be competitive for Democrats. Beto O’Rourke lost by a slim margin in the 2018 midterms. Trump is losing suburban voters all over the place.
Despite Trump losing the suburbs, he can still achieve another ELECTORAL win though. Whether Trump wins or loses in 2020, it will be due to one factor and one factor only! That factor is DEMOCRAT TURNOUT. No other factor matters. Trump will have the turnout minus many suburban voters. His cultists will be out in force voting for their Messiah again. As we get closer to the election, he will start his racist rhetoric again which will rile up the racists in his base. They will be out in force. That is who he appeals to and it’s a large part of his base. Some may argue that there aren’t enough racists to give him a win due to him losing the suburban vote. If Democrat turnout is low, he will have enough of them to give him a win. If Democrats are as enthusiastic as Republicans, it will result in Trump losing.
Trump will win or lose based on DEMOCRAT TURNOUT . It’s that simple. Trump is losing the suburban vote but that is not enough to ensure a win for the Democrat candidate. Republican turnout will be high. Democrat turnout in 2020 will make the difference!
DEMAGOGUE- a political leader who seeks support by appealing to the desires and prejudices of ordinary people rather than using rational argument.
DEMAGOGUERY- political activity or practices that seek support by appealing to the desires and prejudices of ordinary people rather than using rational argument.
There have been many demagogues throughout history and they all follow a similar pattern. Rather than present facts, they will appeal to people’s FEARS and EMOTIONS. They arouse people’s racial and religious prejudices. They accuse opponents of disloyalty. They lie. They break the law and rules of conduct. Does anyone see this behavior exhibited in Trump? If you don’t, you have been taken in by him. Donald Trump, the President of the United States, is a DEMAGOGUE.
All politicians including presidents lie and use demagoguery to an extent to get elected, to promote their agendas, and to hold on to power. With Trump though, we have seen it at a very dangerous level. Trump has incited violence and has riled up his supporters to the point of them yelling racist chants at his rallies.
Ask yourself this: How far is Trump willing to go? His mental instability combined with his demagoguery can result in him riling up his supporters to cause violence in the streets. This could very well happen if he were to lose the election. It could happen if he feels cornered. It could happen if something doesn’t go his way. IT CAN HAPPEN. He can incite violence at a more dangerous level than we have seen in the past.
His supporters are so mesmerized by him. They are clueless to how dangerous he is. That should horrify every American.
Never in history have we had a president who was a national security risk. It’s mind boggling to think that the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is actually a risk to national security and this country as a whole! Unfortunately, that’s the current situation in this country. Trump has done a number of things that make him such a risk.
One behavior he engages in is his tweeting. He tweets changes in foreign policy without telling his advisers, the State Department, the Defense Department, or his Intel officials. When the tweets come out, none of these people have a clue about what he means or what he is talking about. Trump is the first president in history that does NOT talk with anyone around him about the issues that effect this country and the world. When things are suggested to him by his advisers, he ignores them. This behavior has the potential to be very dangerous. A terrorist attack in this country is an event that would be disastrous with Trump as president. He would not confer with his generals or the Defense Department on the course of action. He would end up tweeting a course of action out. By the way, a president can not change a policy by tweeting it!
Another thing that makes Trump a risk to national security is his mental illnesses. They prevent him from thinking clearly. His mental illnesses result in him being erratic and not being able to control his impulses.
Thirdly, he can’t be trusted to be alone with world leaders. We still don’t know what he and Putin spoke about in Helsinki. He took the translators notes and threatened him to not say what was discussed. Nothing exists to show what took place in that meeting. There are no notes. There are no transcripts. Top Intel officials attempted to find out from Trump himself what was discussed to no avail.
Trump can not be trusted with classified information out of fear that he will tell people about it. Early on in his presidency he told Russian officials information that was classified. He also bad mouthed Jim Comey, an AMERICAN, by calling him a “nut job” to Russian officials during that same meeting. As a result of these incidences, our Intel officials did not tell Trump about a secret cyber attack program they had against Russia because they feared Trump would tell Putin. Our OWN GOVERNMENT keeps many things from Trump on a regular basis.
America has many problems and issues that need to be solved. The biggest problem and threat our country faces now though is OUR OWN PRESIDENT.
