The Infantilization Of The Republican Voter

Donald Trump does the equivalent of calling his opponents "poopy head", and his supporters cheer. When he describes an opponent as "sleepy" or "dopey" his fans laugh, seemingly enchanted by the cartoon moment. 

I was listening to a show today, and the pundits started talking about Trump trying to go after Joe Biden. (Trump is calling Biden names, such as "loser", and says Biden is low energy.) The pundits say that Trump is "really good at" making personal attacks. 

Yeah, he's really good at it, if the listener is a 4 year old.  We had "Lying Ted" , "Little Marco" , Ugly Carly ("would you vote for that face?"), "Crazy" Nancy , and on and on.  Trump is 'good at' the political version of baby talk. 

Has our country really deteriorated so badly over the past 5 years or so that mindless drivel is categorized as "really good at it" ? 

The media has a responsibility to object to this nonsense. The media dictates what will be the national discourse. We can't let Trump and his minions drag us into the poopy playpen with them. 

Trump voters, when you see your man say something that is an equivalent of calling someone a doo doo face, does it make you proud?

Of all the inexplicable things done by Trump ,and lapped up by his fans,  these idiotic "nicknames" are the worst.

What's inexplicable?  As Trump has said quite often, he loves the uneducated.  Judging by the acceptance of his embarrassing and infantile behavior, the uneducated love him right back.

By bringing up Democrats when talking about what Trump said, you are engaging in deflection.  By returning to the actual topic (Trump and his words), bbl-1 derailed your attempt at deflection.  That's not deflection.

He says what many of his supporters feel but are too polite to say.

Of course his detractors say lots of things and call him names also.

All's fair in politics, especially if it's true.

As if any of Trumps deplorables have ever been "too polite". Trump is just repeating what many of his low IQ, poorly educated, limited vocabulary supporters have been calling politicians for years. Since they have virtually no clue how the government is supposed to work, all they focus on is what the government isn't doing for them so it was easy for Trump to pick up their tiki torch and proclaim himself their feckless leader.

Most likely two reasons, number one should they ever wish to be called on again it would not be a very good idea (blacklist). Secondly the answer is in your question, he resorts to childish insults because he is a child and knows no other method, which most already realize.

We are proud deplorables to you and those on that side of the aisle. There is nothing at this point in time you all can do to change or shake our support of Trump, his policies, and his re election.  In fact contempt for all that secular progressives stand for is reason enough to re elect the President just so we can stay on the offensive on all the issues of the day.

I really don’t pay attention to 99% of what Trump says. What matters are his actions and those are a 1000% improvement over the previous four presidents.

reversing the courts

rolling back regulations

standing strong against abortion

getting tough on global trade

criticizing the federal reserve which we need to abolish

pulling out of the Paris Accords and other policy changes to roll back the government AGW hoax

pulling the US out of the phony Iran deal

restoring our relationship with Israel and moving the embassy to Jerusalem

getting tough on illegal immigration

What has he reversed?

rolling back regulations

Hurray!  More pollution for everyone.

standing strong against abortion

Trump?  The guy who has paid porn stars to have sex with him?  The guy who has had affairs on every wife he has had?  Why would you really think he is against abortion?

getting tough on global trade

And our trade deficit is rapidly growing because of it.

criticizing the federal reserve which we need to abolish

Hasn't taken any steps at all in that direction.

pulling out of the Paris Accords and other policy changes to roll back the government AGW hoax

Yeah!  Who cares what all the experts say!  Who cares that Trump has claimed climate change in the insurance claim of one of his golf courses.

pulling the US out of the phony Iran deal

Showing that the US cannot be trusted with international agreements, even when every other party is following it.  Iran is now free to immediately pursue nuclear weapons.

restoring our relationship with Israel and moving the embassy to Jerusalem

And ruining our relationship with all our other allies.  Why do you care where the embassy is?  

getting tough on illegal immigration 

You mean he has stopped hiring them at all his properties?  Or are you talking about the kidnapping and caging of children on the border?

Isn't it just a little sad when jealousy rears its ugly head so blatantly?

I celebrate success--not demean it.

The president of the United States gives people nicknames that a 10 year old would be embarrassed to use. It has nothing to do with disagreeing with him politically. He is a total buffoon and I want better for my country.
