How do we explain continued support for Donald Trump

There was an interesting discussion on Morning Joe the other day. This was on the next day or two after video came out of trump saluting the January 6th insurrectionists version of the national anthem. And trump saying how horribly and viciously these people have been treated. The discussion on Morning Joe was over how can people continue to support Donald Trump when he behaves like this, and the answer went down a correct but not much discussed path.

Michael Steele, the former head of the Republican National Committee ,who is now a never trumper, tried to allude to something that Joe Scarborough didn't seem to quite understand ,and then another guest Eddie Glaude made it more clear. Trump's appeal nine years after he appeared as a candidate is the same that it was from the beginning, to people who think they are losing their country to minorities, racial minorities, gender minorities, social minorities, religious minorities, etcetera.

One of the most misunderstood things about the last quarter century in American politics is the importance of the demographic change that is taking place, and its emergence coincided with the election of Barack Obama in 2008, just around the time social scientists and demographers began announcing in public their conclusion that sometime in the near future, relatively speaking, America would become a majority non- white country. Although this wasn't widely discussed in the media at the time ,or even now, the conservatives and the political right understood the implication that America would not ever again be what it had been for most of its existence, a country controlled and socially organized around the needs of white males.

Now nine years later the situation in the perspective from the right is that things that have deteriorated, and they are even closer to losing their country, and the closer that gets the more desperate they get and the more attached to someone like Donald Trump they get.

Donald Trump's existence in politics has always been based on the same thing his birtherism was based on.  He became a national political figure not in spite of, but because, he questioned the legitimacy of the first black president .

To me, continued support for Trump means making excuses for Trump at almost every turn.   Those who do this are a) Trump supporters and b) GOP loyalists who will vote for the nominee no matter who it is.   (And this year they are really illustrating just how far they will go in their pledge to literally vote for whoever is the nominee.)

That is an admission that you, et.al. will willingly elect a scoundrel.   The GOP had many opportunities to produce a decent nominee yet it has categorically failed.   And now, when faced with a traitor as your nominee, all you can do is pretend that Biden is worse.   

Worse, when the GOP members with some semblance of integrity object to Trump, they are blackballed from the party.   The division within the party should be a major red flag.   Seeing conventional Rs leave and MAGA take over positions of power should be a warning bell.

The GOP is no longer the party you have supported all these years.  Its name has not changed, but its nature and character has.   The GOP is now the sycophantic party of Trump.   Your GOP no longer exists in effect.   And as long as you et.al. go along with this, the more likely the GOP will be forever lost.

It’s no such thing and doesn’t even remotely respond to my comment.    That Biden’s performance is a big reason people support  Trump.    Even though the mass media has basically given Biden a free pass the last 4 years, you can’t escape that reality.

The GOP had many opportunities to produce a decent nominee yet it has categorically failed.

As have the Democrats and yet …. Biden is still their nominee.

  And now, when faced with a traitor as your nominee, all you can do is pretend that Biden is worse.

Well, poll after poll agree that Biden is worse.    He can’t escape his track record.    Thinking people see right pass the mass gaslighting effort of the resist movement started in November of 2016.    Another reality that can’t be escaped.  

Worse, when the GOP members with some semblance of integrity object to Trump, they are blackballed from the party.   The division within the party should be a major red flag.   Seeing conventional Rs leave and MAGA take over positions of power should be a warning bell.

I’ve got news for you.    You are in the same boat.    I’ve never been a member of either party and vote for the person who I feel best serves this country.   I wish I had a better candidate to vote for but alas, between Biden and Trump it’s not even a question.    Same as 2016.    And don’t bother trying the shame offensive that seems to permeate NTers against Trump.    Unlike others here it ain’t gonna work.    Biden and his policies have been a shit show for this country and again, based on current polling, I’m hardly the only person who feels that way.

One can try to gaslight that reality away but only useful idiots buy it.

There is no excuse for supporting Trump.   He should never be allowed access to any political position of power, much less the presidency.

True, but Trump is an order of magnitude worse than Biden.   There is no comparison.

I wish I had a better candidate to vote for but alas, between Biden and Trump it’s not even a question.  

Yes, you compare Biden with Trump and choose a scoundrel who has demonstrated that he will throw the nation under the bus just to satisfy his ego.   Trump is the only PotUS in our history who has attempted to steal a US presidential election with lies, coercion, fraud, and incitement.   He is a demagogue, unpresidential, and will abuse the office (if he gets elected) to fulfill his vindictive urges.

There is no comparing Trump with pretty much any candidate.  He stands alone as a profoundly terrible choice for president.   And even if he is convicted of a felony, his supporters will still stubbornly and illogically claim "but he is better than Biden".

They don't need an "excuse " to vote for Trump. As the post you responded to said "That Biden’s performance is a big reason people support Trump. "

If people think that the country will be better off in 4 years of a Trump presidency than a Biden presidency that is a reason, not an excuse, why they would vote for Trump. [] and realize that they might focus on things they could spin that Biden has done well, if they can find any, instead of sticking with Trump is an order of magnitude worse than Biden bullshit as a way to sway voter's they may actually win in Nov.

we have had an immigration problem in america for at least 30 years. biden neither completely created that or is solely responsible for that either. 

there have always been periods of inflation in america. nothing new about that either, nor is it bidens fault. 

nor is the national debt.

If Donald Trump was a relatively normal human being it would probably be fair to say that even though some of these things are not Joe biden's fault ,maybe a change should be in order just to see if someone else can do better with these circumstances . Donald Trump is not a relatively normal human being, he's an extremely abnormal human being who has single handedly brought our country to the brink of embracing dysfunctional psychological behavior for political reasons. 

We have always had a national character that, totally accurately or not promoted the idea of honesty, truthfulness, kindness, wanting to do the right thing ,remorse when necessary, apologizing when you do wrong - Trump exhibits none of that.Our moral character as a nation is at stake.

Nothing Joe Biden has done is worse than that, particularly because we don't know for sure that the next person in the office will do better.

Exactly, and Biden doesn’t get enough credit for his Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, in 1994 that locked up a lot of dealers.

we have had an immigration problem in america for at least 30 years. biden neither completely created that or is solely responsible for that either. 

Yep, although sanctuary city mayors didn’t whine about it before.

there have always been periods of inflation in america. nothing new about that either, nor is it bidens fault. 

Indeed, last time was in the 70’s.  Why would anyone think that large spending bills on the heals of pent up demand following COVID might be inflationary.

nor is the national debt. 

Exactly, during WW II we saw similar debt to GDP.  The good news is that now our debt is going to fall fast.

nor is anti-semitism.

Are you thinking of FDR?

Your claim that JR can only offer platitudes akin to “orange man bad” as to why Trump still has support is demonstrable bullshit.   JR routinely delivers logical analysis whereas most of his critics make things personal and engage in dishonest tactics in lieu of an actual rebuttal (as demonstrated by your comment).

This original article is an example of analysis.   You may disagree with his analysis but this is substantially more than “orange man bad”.

Do you acknowledge any wrongdoing by Trump?   (rhetorical)

I see plenty of feeble deflection and excuses (e.g. anyone who says anything against Trump is ipso facto 'biased').   I see plenty of criticism of Biden coupled with an almost predictable defense of Trump.   And that is incredible given Trump has provided a plethora of wrongdoing examples and evidence that he should never by allowed near any political position of power, much less the presidency.

And here, you even spin JRs comment —in direct contradiction of the context established by his original article— and then deflect rather than apologize to JR.

JR's article asks a very appropriate question and your comments illustrate why it is appropriate.

That would be like expecting an unbiased Biden performance review on NEWSMAX. 

But thank you for your very biased opinion.

You may have missed it but my comment stated it was a good question.

Look at the reply meta-info, I replied to this from you.

RdtC@8.1.6 ☞ Anyone that does not believe Trump is the embodiment of evil.

But thank you for your very biased opinion.   

More feeble bullshit.   You can claim that any source is biased.   That is a meaningless statement.

Instead of whining that sources are biased (they are all biased), demonstrate how that bias is factually wrong.   The bias of a source is not relevant, what matters is the factual integrity of the reporting.

I gave you a video showing Trump speaking and saluting.   It proves JR is correct.   You deny what is in front of your eyes.

JR's article asks a very appropriate question

This article is very much like the majority of his articles. A big steaming pile of BS.

A big steaming pile of BS. 

Always through a very partisan lens.  Alot like MSNBC.

I'm sure Joy Behar, Whoopie Goldberg, and Sunny Hosten on the totally unbiased "The View" can get plenty of mileage on that on MSNBC./s

Thanks for your opinion.

Well i wasn't going to give you someone elses opinion, but i again feel compelled to inquire, how did you come up with the moniker ? Cause it veers far right like you had a blowout of front passenger tire.
