I think what’s most telling about those who voted for Trump is their dedication to denial and propensity to quibble – they just can’t seem to bring themselves to admit anything negative about the candidate they voted for.
Maybe somewhere in that it becomes personal, as though to admit even the most obvious somehow impugns their personal integrity, raises the issue of human fallibility and the reality that none are above it.
I suppose that’s as good a definition of ego as any, and while ego is apparently an essential element of the human psyche to one degree or another I don’t believe it should ever become preeminent.
So a simple question remains – if they’re vocal in their agreement concerning the ban of immigrants from specific countries and believe it’s a necessary security measure why aren’t they raising hell about the Saudi exclusion from that list?
Have the “patriots” forgotten 911? Are they willing to overlook the fact that their boy has business interests with the Saudis much the same as they applauded his “genius” in avoiding taxes while they themselves aren’t able to?
Are they aware that the impetus to repeal Obamacare is predicated on pandering to one percenters and bestowing yet another massive tax break on them?
Hey, if you doubt any of this go beyond the party bs and actually do the math for yourself or continue stroking your ego and embracing those “alternative facts” while staring at the bare ass of the emperor who has no clothes.
