If You Still Support Trump, I Instantly Know 7 Things About You

BycpowellPosted on May 28, 2017

While I don’t always like to make sweeping assumptions about people based on a small collection of evidence, if you still support Donald Trump, there are certain things I already know about you. Here are 7 of those things (HUGE shout out to Daily Kos for putting together this amazing list!):

1. YOU WANT TO BE RULED, NOT GOVERNED:
The single trait that predicts the Trump supporter isn’t related to race, income, or education. A University of Massachusetts researches found that the top predictor of whether a voter supports Trump is a tendency to lean toward authoritarianism:

Authoritarians obey. They rally to and follow strong leaders. And they respond aggressively to outsiders, especially when they feel threatened. From pledging to “make America great again” by building a wall on the border to promising to close mosques and ban Muslims from visiting the United States, Trump is playing directly to authoritarian inclinations.

2. YOU HAVE NO CLASS:
Donald Trump and his supporters will try to tell you that he didn’t mock a disabled person, even though we all saw him do it.


Also, remember the time he mocked Senator McCain for being a POW, saying “I like people who weren’t captured”?

Remember the time he made a mockery of our military by insulting/disrespecting the parents of a fallen soldier?

Remember when Donald Trump body-shamed a beauty pageant winner?

Remember when Donald Trump was accused (not charged, yet) of statutory rape, not mention the creepy and disgusting things he said about his own daughter?

There are literally thousands of statements and actions that we could mention here. Keep defending them, please, and prove my point about your lack of class.

Here are the other 5 without text:
3. YOU ARE NOT SOMEONE I WOULD TRUST TO DO BUSINESS WITH:
4. YOU’RE EITHER A RACIST OR AN ENABLER OF RACISTS:
5. YOU HAVE ISSUES WITH WOMEN:
6. YOU AREN’T QUITE AS “CHRISTIAN” AS YOU CLAIM TO BE:
7. YOU ARE ANTI-CONSTITUTION:

1. I only need one - If you support Trump, you are an asshole, period.

It's way past time to sugar coat it and pussyfoot around with these people. If this country truly has 50% of the population who think that ANYTHING this mountain of shit has done in the last 130 days is OK, then we need to split into 2 countries and allow those who desire to die to do so on their own without imperiling the rest of us.

17. They can have Texas, and anyone who doesn't want to live with them there

Can move to somewhere more sane on the taxpayers dime, as far as I'm concerned.

But we're demolishing all federal buildings and equipment before we cede it to them tho, on the grounds that Bootstraps build Character, or whatever the fuck it is that they believe.

I'm not willing to let so much as a single patriot bleed for these dumb brainwashed fucks, so if they want to go, I say let them. In about 6 months it will belong to the Mexican Government again in name, and specifically to the cocaine cartels.
Fuck em.

20. My single-word answer would be "STUPID."

Followed by "GULLIBLE." And after that, "NAIVE." And throw in one more: "MEAN-SPIRITED."

32. Yep, just that

It's not even close -- all of the other things mentioned are subsumed under that broader heading.

But I don't think splitting into 2 countries is the answer. I was thinking maybe we could cattle-run them all down to Texas, but then I know people in Texas who who aren't assholes and it wouldn't be fair to them. I wonder if Australia would mind settling them in that vast desert in the middle of their continent? Better still, maybe we could sit them all down on the next ice-shelf likely to split off from Antarctica. Something very poetically just in that!

5. I don't think we can know that outright

It ascribes a deeper political motive the vote that is often true but can't be assumed, because many of the drooling idiot fuckheads who voted for him don't care about "party" per se except in terms of pissing off Liberals.

People will positively trip over themselves in their urgent need to tell you what you got wrong or "forgot."


The list is 100% correct.

13. I agree.

I think this is going to have a very big negative impact on the GOP as well.

its getting to the point that body slamming a reporter is ok or normal from GOP.

They will do anything to deflect or defend all the nasty things Trump is doing.



However the biggest culprit in this entire mess our country is in is the Right wing media outlets like Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, etc.

They constantly produce fake or misleading information and refer to Liberals in a negative way.

This has lead to the GOP morphing into the "Anti-Liberal/Anti -democrat" party.

...saying “I like people who weren’t captured”? "

And yet MsCain follows Dolt 45 with abandon and refuses to speak out about a draft dodging traitor. McCain needs to be thrown out of the Senate

28. Political Christian, not a Christian of faith

Like today's evangelical/religious right supporters, Trump is a Political Christian, not a Christian of faith.

Evangelicals/religious right are easily able to spin their beliefs for political expediency.

The Donald who does not have to ask Jesus for forgiveness.

Trump: Drink my little wine, have my little cracker
