How can leo and millions more support someone knowing that he used taxpayer money and the power of the presidency to reward and punish other countries in return for partisan political favors?


Maybe I understand with single issue voters concerned only with short term gains, but what about long term?
How can anyone support open buying and selling of political favors, tax law, business contracts without hating everything this country stands for?

Yet the man, who calls American citizens who disagree with him "scum", laughs at the disabled, mocks parents of dead military, and touts that he is the smartest man in the world, has the undying support of 70% of republicans.

Really?

Can't explain the unexplainable. No matter what the poll numbers don't move. It really doesn't bode well for us as a nation and I really shudder to think of what could happen if there is no conviction and he's re elected.

What little that's left of the Constitution would be shredded.

The pent up rage and frustration the GOP nurtured for eight years of having a black man as president, along with the subliminal bigotry and racism of the party and its low intelligence white trash faction, have served to establish what we have now; basically a cult that is basking in its perceived glory and the virtual religious aspect of being faithful to the cult leader no matter what.

America-hating Trumpettes would be fine with it if a future POTUS asked a Maduro, Castro, Kim, al Assad, Erdogan or Ayatollah to interfere in our elections.

what else could it be. look at leo's comment. he's the one shitting on the Constitution and he laughs about it. It's really hard to watch so many otherwise normal people turn against everything this country stands for.

I looked up the AFBRANCO asshole who did the cartoon; he's a right wing nutjob. The cartoon must be an Obama hate one since it has a 2010 date. This seems to affirm my post about how eight years of their pent up lunacy broke free with trump, and now trump and the ones who worship him and ride his coattails feel much more empowered to wield their influence on the gullible and bigoted and stupid. The manipulators like trump and Fox and Hannity and all the others are the real danger. And the morons grin like Cheshire cats and revel in their ignorance.

It's really weird. I think memes have destroyed us. Most of us can't think in complex terms. Throw some text complaining about snowflakes being too effeminate over a picture of a grizzled up cowboy lamenting about the good old days and you've inculcated a new pseudo-reality in the minds of the many. Tap into those deeply repressed emotions of inadequacy and unfulllfillment and you've got some new converts to the cult.

More confirmation that many cops have never cared about the law. It's about exerting power and supporting their team.

Pretty much every time in history that "conservatives" have gotten into office, they've made a mess - war, economic turmoil, human rights, whatever. Yet they keep coming back with the same stories and keep getting elected. Canadian Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, who came within an uncomfortably slim margin of being PM, now resigns for misuse of campaign funds to pay private school tuition for his kids; Alberta citizens are now in severe disapproval of Premier Kenney for doing basically what he said he'd do - cut budgets, services and general screw up the works. Buffoon Johnson's Tories won a majority that will probably go through with Brexit, which was a bad idea to start with and has been totally bungled for three years.

It's not a new thing, and it happens consistently in a lot of countries. They lie, get elected, wreak havoc, rehabilitate their story, get elected again apparently because of vote amnesia or something.
