This journalist's response to a Trump supporter is perfect.

And that's really it.

Here we are learning more and more damaging information about Donald Trump, his campaign, and his administration every day, and still his base of supporters think HE is the victim instead of realizing that THEY are the victim.

I really don't know if that support from his base will ever completely dissipate, but I predict that every single day there are a small number of newly enlightened supporters who wake up and realize that the king has no clothes, and that they were taken in by an orange tinned con artist using the oldest tricks in the book.

    That a perfect response!

    Thanks Gryphen for bringing this and so many other stories to your blog.
    I'm always sending links to IM as I don't see the stories you post anywhere else.
    Thanks again!

    "In the 21st century, prostitution occurs across cultures and POLITICAL systems, EVEN operating in socialist societies. The originator of the phrase “the world's oldest profession” was Rudyard Kipling. His 1888 story about a prostitute begins,

      It may save face but he may lose a nice severance package. He can certainly forget about applying for unemployment. (Republicans just hate those safety net programs until they qualify for them. Then they take everything they can get. Millionaires getting social security comes immediately to mind.)

    I hope that more of his base will finally see the light, but I fear we may also see more violent incidents like the murders in Portland.

    As his administration implodes, his devoted followers are becoming more desperate and angry. Those who are on the edge of violence may feel the need to lash out at anyone they perceive as the 'enemy'.

    This is a scary and dangerous time for our country. Either we will be destroyed by it or, as I believe, we will come out stronger for it, battle-scarred and ready to rebuild a nation that is respected and trusted around the world.

    On this Memorial Day, I am reminded that we've been through many dark times in our nation's history, but have always fought through and survived. I sincerely hope we can do the same this time, with minimal damage in the process.

      I'm sorry to say I think it will take a very long time and it'll get much worse before it gets better. Not only will we have to fight the bad guys but also their years of illegal skulduggery, some of which they haven't even thought of yet. It won't ever be a fair fight and it won't be won at the ballot box.

      President Obama did say last year that he intended to work on voting issues when he was out of office. He knows.

    2. What is more disgusting is that one political party in majority in the House and the Senate is now colluding with this traitor and protecting him, rather than protecting this nation, the Constitution and our people.

      The Republicans are equally if not more culpable than the big orange anus. They put him there and they are keeping him there despite everything that has been revealed.

      So I put Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell on the chopping block ahead of Trump. We all knew what Trump was, them included, but they helped to put him in a position to destroy this country rather than to block him and run a more qualified candidate.

      Trump should have been blocked at the primary level. He never should have won the Republican nomination. And they could have prevented him. They simply chose not to.

      They put party before country. They put personal gain before the good of the nation.

      Fuck them all.

      I agree and I have never subscribed to the nonsense that we Democrats should feel sorry for the Trump voters and try to see the world as they do. They didn't have to rely totally on Fox News and they didn't have to be taken in by his con artistry. They chose to. Even a well-educated doctor friend of ours, who always obsessed about the national debt when a Democrat was in charge, worries about how poor Trump is being perceived. We just bite our tongues and hope for the day when this friend admits to us that he made a huge, no "yuuuge," mistake in supporting Trump and believing the GOP/Fox nonsense about the national debt.

    His supporters aren't victims, all the info about what a crappy businessman trump is was out there before the election. It was also a known fact he is a con artist and a pathological liar.

    He allowed them to demonstrate their hatred freely without any consequences. That is why they voted for him. Hatred for Obama, Hillary, women, minorities and anyone that has a different opinion.

    Unfortunately for the rest of us, we are also paying the consequences of their ignorance.

    Only five months into his term and all we have continual chaos because of little donnie, he hasn't accomplished anything (thank god) except isolate the US from the rest of the world.

    The rest of the world is onto his con game and they aren't buying it.

    So his supporters can go to hell.

    I mentioned that I was up close with Kelly Ann Conjob and her family yesterday. While the venue was not appropriate to say anything to her , plus she was with her girls after running a fundraising 5k. But I took delight in the fact that her husband and she saw me and my family looking and taking photos , and I think they thought I was a fan girl. But I was madly texting her huge varicose veins all over social media and laughing my ass off at her...calling over my teenage boys to gawk..etc etc. Here's one family who is on to your evil bullshit KellyAnn. No good can come of what you have done.
