There’s One Thing Trump Supporters Unwittingly Do That Proves How Terrible He Is

Unless you’re a supporter of Donald Trump, odds are you’re probably pretty well aware of how awful he is. To this day it’s still mind-boggling to think of how gullible someone has to be to think this idiot is competent enough to be this nation’s leader.

Without a doubt, Trump is one of the most dishonest human beings I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, even though practically nothing he says is true, that hasn’t stopped his supporters from thinking he’s an honest person. Though it’s not just that his supporters are naive enough to think they can trust anything he says, it’s that they’re so brainwashed they actually believe that anyone who debunks his never-ending stream of lies is part of a conspiracy against him and the truth.

In all my years following politics, I’ve never seen a situation where quoting someone verbatim, or showing indisputable audio/video evidence proving someone had said or done something, was no longer valid evidence to prove a point or debunk a lie.

Trump’s unpresidented unprecedented dishonesty has unquestionably made fake news and conspiracies much more mainstream. In a desperate attempt to maintain their state of denial as to avoid realizing what a horrific human being he is, his supporters began seeking out fake news to validate their support of him. I’ve used video clips of things he’s said, or quoted him word-for-word, only to have his supporters either tell me I was using a “fake source” and he didn’t actually say that, or I was taking him out of context — by using his exact words.

In an ironic twist to all of this, what his supporters don’t realize is that by claiming that the truth about Donald Trump is either “fake,” a part of some conspiracy, or taken out of context, they’re actually proving exactly how terrible he is. When people like myself point out how he:

  • Called most Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals.
  • Belittled POWs by saying he “likes people who weren’t captured.”
  • Mocked a man with disabilities.
  • Completely fabricated the story about seeing “thousands and thousands” of Muslims celebrating 9/11 in the streets of New Jersey.
  • Skipped a presidential debate because he couldn’t force a moderator out.
  • Talked about the size of his penis during another debate.
  • Suggested Ted Cruz’s father might have been involved with JFK’s assassination.
  • Called Ted Cruz’s wife ugly.
  • Used racism against a federal judge.
  • Settled a lawsuit with the Department of Justice over racial discrimination.
  • Was found guilty of using blatant racism against Native Americans.
  • Said women should have expected to be sexually assaulted when they integrated men and women in the military.
  • Shared anti-African American propaganda created by white nationalists.
  • Attacked a Gold Star family.
  • Bragged about being a sexual predator.
  • Told a 10-year-old he’d be dating her in 10 years.
  • Said emotionally troubled women are great in bed when discussing 18-year-old Lindsey Lohan.
  • Praised a country that attacked us.
  • Told his millions of Twitter followers that former Senator Tom Coburn called Senator Ted Cruz “one of the most dishonest people in DC” when it was really me who said that about Cruz. (Yes, that really happened.)

When we say all of that (and much… much more) we’re not “twisting reality,” making up lies or concocting some sort of “conspiracy against him” — we’re citing indisputable facts about things he’s said and done.

Yet, despite every single thing on the list being absolutely true, most of his supporters will either deny these facts or make excuses for him.

But when they do that, even though they won’t admit it, all they’re really doing is proving what an absolute embarrassment it is that someone who’s as much of a lowlife as he is was elected president.

If he wasn’t as absolutely awful as people like myself know he is, then there wouldn’t be any need for his supporters to have to buy into outlandish conspiracies, believe fake news, or flat-out deny reality just to defend their support of Donald Trump.

    Allen, there’s much more to this than brainwashing, it’s more like hypnosis of the masses. Just exactly how did he do it to so many people? I’m as mind-boggled by this as you are.

  • Nancy B

    I can’t get my head around this phenomena. Every time I quote trump, himself, to prove a point, I’m told I’ve been brainwashed by the MSM.

  • True Patriot Christian

    Anybody that doesn’t support Trump must be killed. Let the mass exterminations begin! Praise Jesus!

  • True Patriot Christian

    God sent Trump to finish Hitler’s great mission and to succeed where he failed. America is going to be all White (except for our slaves), all Christian, all Conservative and all heterosexual. All Glory to God Almighty!!!!

    • Paul Julian Gould

      Old fart Army vet who happens to be a Jew… I hope your stuff is snark and a Poe… I really, really do…

      Otherwise, you’re clinically insane.

      • True Patriot Christian

        We must finish the Final Solution and exterminate all you jewkike parasites. I’d love to personally blow your jew head off. The world would be a far better place today if Germany had won WWII but now that we have Donald Trump running things there’s a chance we can finish exterminating all of you subhuman vermin. SIEG HEIL TRUMP!!!

      • Paul Julian Gould

        Bring it, you Nazi asshole…

        But you should know I’m Vietnam-era Cold War vet, who was a SGT/E-5 crew chief on the fire control, battery operations site of a Nike nuke unit in Germany… I held a Top Secret/Crypto clearance, and qualified as expert regularly, on rifle, .45 and M60…

        I’m a peaceable and generally peaceful man, but I’m not a pacifist, nor an idiot… Would love to clean your clock… no death… too quick… maybe a lot of pain and damage to your body and your ego..

        So, again, bring it, cowardly Nazi troll… My nick on Disqus is my full legal name, and my profile is not locked, such as redneck right-wing punks like you always do…

      • Paul Julian Gould

        You’re either serious, which Disqus admin would like to hear about..If you’re doing an Andy Kaufman bit, you’re damned good at it, and should take your act on the road…

        Way, way down the road and far far away… Decent people will thank you on your way outta town.

      • Paul Julian Gould

        Andy Kaufman… another nice Yiddische boy would have cleaned your clock without a bit of violence… but you’d no doubt be persona non grata in any place you’d choose to live, apart from way out in the desert somewhere.

      • Paul Julian Gould

        Oh, and also, I’m pretty good with bladed weapons, and, should the circumstances permit and it be warranted, would have absolutely no problem using such, close enough to look in the eye, against a redneck, neo-Nazi, bigoted troll who’s not brave enough to have a publicly accessible account…

        So, again, bring it, you cowardly Nazi asshole… I’d enjoy the encounter.

      • Paul Julian Gould

        … hateful nasty subhuman Jew that I am… you should expect it from one like me, you punk…

      • Paul Julian Gould

        So, where do you live? I can drive there, but only one of us would walk away from the encounter…

        … wouldn’t be me…

        To others, such a ridiculous and hateful troll, even considering the barest possibility that the asshole is a Poe, this weird old Jewish hippie doesn’t find such funny in any way…

        Sorry, but I’ll not apologize for my reaction to this, and, should Disqus not ban this asshole, I expect many such encounters.. whether virtual, or, as I would hope, physical… I’ve no understanding, but very much rage against such a person, Poe or not, and find no humor in such behavior, based upon personal and family history.

        Embee McDavid, your surname is Irish for “son of David,” and my Jewish Grandfather and my uncle were named David…

        And my birthname was David Peterson, until my adoption was complete and the name and birth-certificate were changed to the name you see here… And my lovely wife actually is Irish, with ancestors who emigrated in the 1800’s from Counties Cork and Clair to Canada, then to Detroit where most of the family still alive still lives.. wonderful people and only a few Tea Partiers in that huge Irish, mostly Catholic clan…I’m Jewish, my wife is a Wiccan priestess and did a whole pagan farewell ritual at her late Mama’s viewing/wake… cloak, wheat stalks and all… and her wonderfully cool sister who’s a Sister… 50-something years in the IHM Sisters, and rather a Dorothy Day, in her mid-70’s…

        Only a few of my family stil exists, and I’m one of a very few adoptees… Nevertheless, I seem to pay more honor and conviction to the cradle-faith of my late Pop and noble Grandfather who was an observant Conservative Jewish man, who sadly passed at my age of 59, 6 years before my birth.

        Yeah… here I go writing War & Peace but the neo-Nazi asshole just pissed me off, even 3 days old as this OP was.

  • Paul Julian Gould

    So to the neo-Nazi punk, if he’s still here and reading this… bring
    it… got more than a few Jews and Catholics, and even some Evangelicals
    and one or two atheists who’d also like a piece or two of you…

    • Paul Julian Gould

      And some are even here, whom I’d like to meet, but haven’t known until a few upvotes… I’ve no doubt they’d like to take you down a few notches, as well.
