WTF is wrong with .......

I work in a small clinic in Georgia that doesn't offer any benefits but pays well for the area. I work as a part timer and have my military retirement and other investments that are my major source of income.
One of my co-workers has a disabled husband (400lbs+) and adult sons that don't work. No health insurance. She is a hard right conservative.
She believes Trump is the savor (one step below her beloved American Jesus) and keeps telling me that Democrats are just a bunch of leaches that milk the government from her hard earned money via the taxes she pays.

I asked her if her economic status/ standing had changed while Trump was in office.
Her response: because of all the problems the Democrats gave him while in office there was no time to fix the broken system that is our government. I guess there was no change to her finances in the last 4 years.

She complains that illegal immigrants get about $100K when they cross the border to start a new life and food stamps, free health care (something she refuses at all cost because the government would in charge of her health), transportation anywhere they want to live, free housing and utilities, everything is free for them.

I don't argue, I just listen and when she is done, I leave the area and go back to my desk to work.

Just venting on this Monday morning.

1. Welcome to DU

It's astounding to think that an adult believes that crap!

Good for you walking away. You can't reach someone like her.

2. It's pointless to argue or to offer facts. Asking a thought provoking question

can sometimes be helpful. Sometimes. You've already come out ahead by politely listening.
