"This befuddles people, again, like me, ....."
That befuddlement has a name: TDS.
The problem isn't President Trump.
American's DO NOT want any of the self promoting candidates that are running against him.
I have not heard a single democrat say that they put America first.
THAT is the new requisite.


If I may suggest perhaps what you and lots of other Trump haters are missing:
Trump sees through the hypocrisy and mealy mouthed arrogance of the existing establishment...
It’s the same here in Britain, and that’s why there was a majority in favour of breaking away from the EU...

This is not to say that I, nor others who can see through the ruses of the ‘establishment’, are fully paid up supporters of Trump. We just love the way he sees through their same old tired arguments....

Just my tuppence worth, no need for any ping pong please....
“Words alone are certain good....” but not in this case...

And now, brothers and sisters,,,lets pray:
Dear Heavenly Father, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bless the Bernie Sanders campaign and let him win the primary in all of Obama's 55 states.
Please, merciful Father, make this up-coming election a contest between Bernie and President Trump.
America has a huge appetite for the biggest republican landslide in U.S. history.
God bless the U.S.A.

-- 63 million people voted for him. Why? They were sick and tired of the PC, woke, identity politics culture which is smothering individual rights, free speech and freedom of expression, that sees America as evil, founded on racism and white supremacy, who want to diminish America rather than support and restore what is great about it.

Brian, if you want to know how so many people can support this man Trump who you perceive as vile, vulgar, mean and distasteful you should read these two articles. They get into some of the psychology you discussed without using the terms "hot and cold cognition". Took me less than five minutes each and I'm a slow reader.



My first link in the comment above may be slow to load. Be patient and then scroll down through a blank area to the article about "Trump, existential threat to the new world order".

To Eric Robinson,

Hip hip hooray!. Farage's 5 minute farewell speech to the EU. Historic:


Scared of Trump? She'll scare the crap out of you. There's getting to be more and more like her.
