Trump supporters, why do you still support Trump?

Like I'm genuinely curious and concerned.

Because he
-doesn't have a shred of professionalism in his body
-continues to alienate himself from the world, including world leaders and threatens tariffs against mexico, canada, china, japan, etc for no reason, which has real life consequences on our economy
- spends way too much time on twitter attacking/complaining about others 90% of the time
-Doesn't care about keeping the peace in the U.S. and always blames it on democrats instead of trying to be bipartisan.
-makes fun of people with disabiliies and verbally attack a 16 year old for fighting against climate change
-disrespects women and people of color
-incredibly narcissistic and always boasts about himself in times of need in rallies and other event sites he visits
-habitually lies and never fact checks anything
-never condemns violence in his rallies
-keeps electing shitty people for his positions cabinet. For instance, people that are completely unqualified in education and climate change
-won't hesitate to throw you under the bus if stop supporting him
-was born rich and never once struggled like the working class. He has no idea how it feels to be working/middle class


He is an all around awful narcissistic shitty human being who only cares for himself and his rich friends

I don't want this fucking buffoon to set a norm on how leaders should act in the u.s. and the world. We should have NEVER tolerated this. Like its one thing if you believe in a candidates policies and they are decent people, but how could you seriously still respect them and support them if they are an awful shitty person who refuses to change still?

I mean no offense, but I have to wonder how ignorant people are to still support him after his shitty behavior as president.. Or are they psychopaths like him too?

I understand if a person is a Staunch conservative and will vote for who ever will support their said conservative views. But the rest of them. Fuck them.

I don’t even understand why anyone other than a very selfish, already wealthy person would be a “conservative” in the American sense.

I can see why working class people supported Trump in 2016 (even I will admit his takedown of the entire pathetic GOP field was awesome and hilarious). But not now. He has done nothing for your average American other than “own the libs” on Twitter.

There is quite possibly 2 to 3 actually I think. It depends on if they changed their mind by now. I won't name names but it seems quite possible they haven't changed their minds.

Hey some of us like small government, fiscal responsibility, and the right to bear arms.

If you want small government, the Republican party is not the way to go (warrantless spying, unauthorized wars, massive tax cuts for the rich while making the middle class and poor pay for the 2008 bailouts, etc). Anyway it’s not the size of government, but the role, integrity and efficiency of said government that truly matters. For the most part, “small government” is just a bullshit excuse to deregulate banks and major industry, and also let rich people weasel their way out of paying taxes.

Fiscal responsibility is a personal issue not a political one, and there will be both hard working and lazy people in ANY government/economic system.

Right to bear arms is totally fair if often a bit misguided by people who think they are going to “rise up”. Right to bear arms free of regulation, however, is nowhere in the constitution. You have to have a license to drive a car which is far more necessary in American society than owning a gun. Guns should definitely be regulated (you seem to agree with this though based on your posts).

Living in a country who has had a history of wiping out their indigenous people (fairly recently too) has made me realize that the people need to have access to the same weapons the Government has access to.

I could see your point if this were the 1890s or something. But now if the government wants to wipe us out they will just starve/impoverish us to death. No guns needed and it would look like an accident/result of incompetence. If a new genocide happens, it will be relatively quiet and softkill style compared to the past. Plus they now have the surveillance/data technology to follow individuals and surgically take them out if they want, so they don’t always have to kill whole groups of people to reach their actual targets.

I do think the average, law-abiding, moderately trained, stable person should be allowed to own guns though. I just don’t think it would mean much in the face of modern tyranny. Gun nuts who view themselves as potential heroes fighting an authoritarian government vastly underestimate the evil and power of this country’s owners.

I don’t think a John Wayne or a Rambo could have stopped that.

Mass redistribution of resources and political power would go much further than giving all the plebs guns.
