Yep, that must be it. Couldn't possibly be pointing out that this is all a giant virtue-signalling puppet show, and that who gets a show trial is all about who's in power and who gets to cling to it.

earth observation:
that's the entire platform for politics and most modern belief systems
do we have standards or double standards?
is vengeance whataboutism? retribution?
how many wrongs does it take to make a right?
the macro view says it may be systemic?
if both parties/tribes do it and it's wrong does anyone care to point that out?
better yet have an intelligent nonviolent solution(s) to implement to get the desired effect?

principles! who needs them!

They (Trump supporters) will point to your post as proof that you're the one lacking comprehension.  They don't care about what he's done, they care that he says what they're thinking.  The primary thing that started it was PC.  They have the opinion that the country is set up as a meritocracy...work hard, keep your nose clean...thrive.  Somewhere along the way they got lost.  No job, no prospects, drug-addicted kids, cost-prohibitive college, no healthcare...and they got mad that the Dems keep talking about "fairness" at what appears to be their expense.

Trump is their patron saint BECAUSE he is a colossal F*ckup.

They don't care what he does...so long as you hate it.  They want you to get a shot...DON'T!  Personal freedom!   You want an abortion?  NO WAY...murderer.  You want to teach history through the lens of equality and understand how racism played a part in that?  ARE YOU CRAZY?  I'm not an oppressor. 

Ask Trump why he's such a colossal F*ckup, and if he's honest he'd tell you "it's because he's figured out a foolproof way to make money.  The idiots eat this shit up...and send me money no matter how crazy the idea.  I made over $200M between losing the election and the end of 2020...just because I wouldn't concede!"

You'll never understand Trump supporters because you aren't angry enough to believe him.

The Stand is an American post-apocalypse, fantasy streaming television miniseries, based on the 1978 novel of the same name by Stephen King. The plot centers on a pandemic resulting from a mishap at a military biological research station which allows the escape of a lethal strain of influenza. After the pandemic kills almost the entire world population, the few survivors are drawn to one of two figures, one dark and one light, setting up a final good-vs-evil confrontation. In the novel's dedication to his wife, King describes it as a "dark tale of the ageless struggle between good and evil." The adaptation alters details (gender, race, age, etc.) of some of the main characters, moves the setting to modern-day 21st century, and features a new final episode written by King, making it the third variation of the story's conclusion. The first episode was released on CBS All Access (now Paramount+) on December 17, 2020. The adaptation received mixed to average reviews.


I would’ve gone for The Dead Zone (and I still think the movie adaptation should’ve have Gene Wilder as the main character, since he does confused earnest serious better than anyone).

When I see crap like this:

Trump defends supporters who threatened to 'hang Mike Pence' on Jan. 6: 'It's common sense'

And people say they would vote for him again. Do those people have no sense of integrity or honor or decency or concept of right and wrong? Are their moral compasses out of whack or are they just ignorant/oblivious? I sit in wonder and think...and this has been asked before.... what heinous act or series of acts must Trump engage in to tip the scales in order for his mindless sycophants to turn their backs on him?

And I'm supposed to understand Trump supporters? What exactly is there to understand except that they must truly enjoy having a lying dips*t in charge who sh*ts on them and everyone else (his own Vice President included).

VV,   In all sincerity, it would take me days of writing and re-writing to come up with a dense, concise description of the former President similar to yours.


It's a gift 😉
