Question: are you happy you voted for Trump?
Posted by: samintx
Date: March 27, 2020 03:20PM
This is what I would like to ask my former friends that voted for this miserable man. After topping the stats in the Covid19 world...in his words THE GREATEST.

How could they deny the misery and death he has brought to America? I wonder if our lady friend down south would defend these current actions. Do his minions assign constant and universal deny ability to his every action or nonaction? Isn't there a tipping point ?

They may change their minds when the hurricanes hit this summer.

His faithful followers have been trained and manipulated to deny reality and substitute it with his own. We're talking religious levels of faith here.

They are STILL walking around 'laughing at the sheeple believing this virus stuff'. As one wag commented to me on Wednesday as I was using a sanitizing wipe to clean off my shopping cart in Sam's Club.

And as they die off one after the other, think of it as evolution in action.

Landon Spradlin, a Virginia pastor who claimed the “mass hysteria” around the coronavirus pandemic was part of a media plot against Trump, has died from the virus.

Unless I'm reading you wrong, you're wishing death on a hundred million followers of the president who believed his lies about covid-19.

I think the virus is getting to your soul, dude. Come back to the light.

What you're missing Sam is that the president's followers do not see the same information you do. Go to foxnews.com and take a look around. You'll see a different world being reported than when you will see at Wapo or NYT.

In such times it is really hard to resist the temptations of the dark side.

That's why it's helpful to have someone like rjmacs preaching resistance to the temptation.

The awful thing is not so much that a denier has died from his obstinate refusal to face facts. It's that he could well have infected innocent people who definitely don't deserve to die even if we think he did.

Yup. People like him represent a life and death threat to others.

The site I linked to specifically addressed that point,

***NOTE TO READERS: I beg you not to post disrespectfully on the family’s social media. Not only are they grieving, that would alienate this community and damage the potential for learning from this important morality tale. Thanks, Bo.***

I guarantee you 95+% of the deplorables could have the rest of their family die in a state where Trump obviously held up supplies and they would blame Hillary and/or Pelosi.

You don't get rid of Trump by being like Trump.

I actually listen off and on to Rush. Even tune n to Pirro etc to see what they are saying about various topics. But I should think they might start wondering over Covid19 news.

His faithful followers have been trained and manipulated to deny reality and substitute it with his own. We're talking religious levels of faith here.

It's really a sad situation.

He just got his highest approval rating of his presidency. Not just because of Fox News and the right wing echo chamber, but also because of his narcissism. You've probably seen the quote from him where he says never blame yourself, always blame someone or something else.

Even though the U.S. is in the dire situation it is because Trump @#$%& up, he will never admit that. He blames someone/something else for his terrible mistake while spending an incessant amount of time talking up his (superlative, superlative, superlative) accomplishments.

People who have drunk the koolaid will not see the blame is on him simply because *he* did not say it. If it comes from someone else, it is not believed--because they believe Trump and Trump has said to not trust the media. So for the true believers *everything* reinforces Trump.

This feedback loop is really dire and depressing because it's all but impossible to change someone's mind.

They aren’t credible, which makes what they say irrelevant. You’re not hearing “another side” of some issue.
