Then you turn a blind eye to reality. This thread is a perfect example. Trump said something outrageous and within minutes Tomyroma had a thread up about it.

So? Why is that bad for me (or for liberals in general)?
Now, I know why you THINK it is bad. You are a Republican. Republicans can't actually accomplish anything, so they only pleasure they have in life now is "owning libs". Anything that makes "libs" feel bad, makes you feel good. And anything that makes libs feel good, makes you feel bad.
But I, and most liberals, are not like that. We are used to winning, to getting things accomplished. So we don't have to rely on childish bullying to feel like we accomplished something and feel good about ourselves (last I looked the ACA was still there, and "the wall" was not).
So, I DON'T CARE if Trump gets his Jollies off on having people talk about him. I DON'T CARE if me pointing out how idiotic his ideas (and by extension, the ideas of the Republican Party, since he is the leader of it) are inflates his little snowflake ego and makes him have good fee-fees. Trump is really not important. He is just one (childish, narcissistic, and over all crappy) human being.
What MATTERS is the (from their voting record, probably childish, narcissistic, and overall crappy) people who voted for him and continue to support him. Are you saying that it makes THEM happy when "libs" point out how idiotic and unworkable Trump's ideas are? That they take pleasure and pride in TRUMP'S EGO being inflated. Because that is the only thing that really matters. The Republican Party under Trump has shown that they can't accomplish anything significant in government (the only significant thing he COULD accomplish before the end of his term would only be due to luck/timing if another SC justice needed to be replaced). So all that I care about is whether he is able to be re-elected in a year.
So, are YOU saying things like this (idiotic ideas like nuking Hurricanes) make YOU more likely to vote for him in a year. That him saying things like this make you happy and proud to have him as your president.
Or, are you saying that YOU are above all this (that you are SUPERIOR to them), but the average Republican voter is shallow enough that they take pleasure in him "trolling libs", even if it is just "trolling" them to point out just how idiotic his obviously idiotic ideas are? And they take such pleasure in it that they are willing to overlook his total lack of accomplishments and actual damage to the well-being of the average American to vote to re-elect him?
Just trying to figure out what EXACTLY you are trying to say about Trump and the Republicans that support him with your claims that our actions are not in our best interests.
