Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 31, 2020

Joe Scarborough: What a tremendous burden it must be for you to still be defending President Trump. You have called yourself a constitutional conservative for decades, but now you sit silently as the president pushes to move this year's election because he might lose. Even some Republican senators are speaking up. Why aren't you?

Remember your silence after Charlottesville? Trump's retreat from Germany? The ceding of Syria to Vladimir Putin? Undermining the U.S.-German alliance because of an ignorant misunderstanding of NATO's dues structure?

A love-letter for the Trumpers of the D.R.

This lays out why the rote defense of "trump" is so repulsive to many of us that aren't trump lovers, and why such a defense is so politically divisive.

Scarborough lays it out pretty well. There's really no argument to be made in Trump's defense that doesn't require you to be ok with lies, treason and the needless deaths of many thousands of Americans.

Agreed. I read this and thought of all the talking points, rationalizations, constant lies, obfuscation, dissembling done by Trump's supporters on the D.R. and decided to post it as an explanation of how they appear to me and others. Thanks for reading it CBOB.

That's an awesome picture. Wonder how he got that close? Remote camera perhaps?

It does capture him well.

The problem with addressing a letter like this to Trump's supporters here on the DR is that by and large they are too dishonest and stupid to acknowledge the truth of it.

I doubt if Trump supporters can be shamed. Not at this late stage.

It's been inexplicable to most of us that Trump has any supporters at all.

You need to understand that they remain in their information bubble intentionally and do not allow alternative views to enter their minds. This nation, if we do regain power, needs to pass legislation that destroys Fox News and all other right wing hate media. Say whatever you want but I have 150,000 reasons why that is absolutely necessary to preserve this Republic. And F you if you disagree, I don't care. Hopefully, that is exactly what President Biden is going to do. We have allowed right wing media to destroy our once great nation for far too long, it is time we fought back.

That is the same problem the religious faith-based minds exhibit... and the same problem many Republicans exhibit.

"You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep-seated need to believe."

Most Trump worshipers will not be moved by anything!

They're deeply moved by having to walk over x-amount of carcasses while they ask why the road to divinity is so bumpy.

Liquidcake, a new ally against ignorance here. Welcome to the fray sir. We may not always agree but you do seem like a person who actually thinks. I welcome you.
