Do you really think it's that binary?
It is that binary.
The people who can't stop blathering on about morals, values, principles, patriotism blah blah blah are showing themselves to be devoid of all of it.
Trump is literally the antithesis of everything the Republican party has stood for for my life time and they've discarded it in a second to hitch their wagon to a lying conman who is...wait for it...lying and conning the entire country for his own enrichment.
Be honest though - to an extent it's wholly deserved. Have you seen (well of course you have as you are a purveyor of it) how horribly 60 million people are portrayed?
If you act is a manner that's deserving of disrespect don't whine when you get disrespected.
If you act stupidly, don't whine when people say you're stupid.
If you act like an ------, don't be surprised when you get called an ------.
I'm sick and tired of people getting treated in a manner they've earned but thinking they're entitled to be treated decently. It doesn't work that way and it says a lot about you that you think otherwise.
Dude. This is hard for me to say because I like you - with the exception of lacking character (you don't lack character) you check off every other box that you just listed.

The "I know you are but what am I" defense doesn't hold water.
Because you're essentially demanding I treat people with respect and civility despite their lack of both and expect me to maintain a standard not of my own making.
Don't want to be treated like crap? Don't lie. Don't support a cheater. Don't deflect, deny and rationalize for poor behavior that isn't acceptable in your personal life let alone in somebody's public life.
Demand others live up to the standard you expect of me and you'd see that my behavior would rapidly change to match.
