My response to a djt supporter on a local blog: [View all]

Forget parroting partisan news sources used only to further your own confirmation bias. Forget "whataboutisms," the "Billy did it too defense," used to deflect any criticism.

Let's use our own eyes and ears:

I saw with my own eyes djt mock a disabled person. You saw it too. I hear with my own ears djt disparage others with childish name calling. You hear it too. These are behaviors we saw and hear. There is no twisting, no spinning. They are factual and obvious.

I see djt supporters as victims of a fear, greed and resentment-based communal psychosis they cannot or refuse to see. Minimizing, defending and rationalizing his behavior for one of two reasons:
1). Belief djt's alleged monetary brilliance will somehow fatten their own wallets (greed) or;
2). A perverse glee that he is sticking it to libtards, snowflakes,'them Mex-cans,' baby-killers, Jesus-less cretins, BLM, pointy-headed college types and other assorted, despised groups (fear and resentment).

In this area, SE Indiana, I don't think most people are delusional enough to believe #1, so I'm going with #2 as the most likely reason for support of djt. Not only here, but in the vast majority of rural America.
