Is it possible that Trump supporters have opinions also that disagree with yours and beliefs that are just as deeply held?




Of course.
I've said that too

I've said as much on my original post and multiples since.

Does not stop people from the what about though.

Why can't people just answer questions without deflecting and the what about?

I'd counter your title with - Why did Hillary supporters feel the need to defend absolutely everything she did?

The answer would be the same for both.

Truth be told, there was no candidate to vote for in the last election that would have made a great President. We were all had.

I think the answer lies in the title of your OP - "why do Trump supporters feel the need to defend absolutely everything he does?" They are responding the MSM and the left's relentless and continual attack and criticism of "absolutely everything he does", from lowering or not lowering a flag to North Korea to Putin to feeding fish in a pond to 2 scoops of ice cream. The liberal media has flooded the news stream with so much overhyped trivial crap that their real issues and concerns have become just more irritating noise. I'm amazed that they can't see this tactic backfiring bigly.

That's an answer but a cop out.

The every man feels the need to defend so much cause the media?

It is ok for an individual to not agree with everything and still support him.

I didn't say I defend him for everything because I do not. I'm just saying that is why you will have some defend him over virtually anything. You can be a "Trump supporter" without supporting everything he says or does. I have and have seen other conservatives here criticize and call him out when he's in the wrong and I know you have too.

Nothing new. Even though the media went softer on Obama the liberal everyman was there to defend. Whether it was his true citizenship, college transcripts, or his "wife's" gender, etc.

The same reason Hilary supporters defend everything she does.
The same reason Obama supporters defend everything he did.

Why do all the anti-Trumpers not know how to write properly? A couple periods would be a good start.

I'll ignore the broad brush strokes and answer.

There are many reasons people support trump and defend what he does and what you're seeing as massive support is actually driven by three main ideas:

1) For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The media wants to make a big deal and act as if he doesn't know what color the flag is, so people will do take the other side. The dishonesty in the media meant to paint trump as the worst person ever is countered by dishonestly painting him as gods gift to the world.

2) It strains credulity to believe that Trump (or any president, ever) doesn't know what the flag looks like. While this is a specific example, you could broaden it to the statement "Benefit of the doubt" to cover most things.

3) People like Trump and defend people they like, even when they're wrong.

Because the Left is always attacking him with lies. If someone doesn't defend him, then stupid people will be influenced by Liberals...or otherwise known as stupid people. When people attack...the natural answer is to defend. Especially when attacked by manipulative crybabies that can't accept that their entire establishment, including their biased media...was beat by one man LOL.
He really doesn't need our help, but it's always a good idea to point out Liberal lies to the public, or else they may suffer the fate of the actual Liberals...being drug down to a level of idiocy that normal people can't comprehend, and for which there may be no help for.

IF I hadn't supported Trump.

By now I'd no longer have an 'assault weapon'.

My tolerance level is too damn high.


How does your little toy gun help you explain how the president you support lies to the American people 7 times a day?


Haha, what does that even mean.


It means your President Trump lies every day 7 times. Have trouble reading?


That makes him different than CNN or MSNBC, HOW?


It makes him at least twice as honest as them!

Because Liberals aren't giving him a chance.

Even if the man did something good, Liberals would always find a negative.

And on top of that, it's kind of #ed up how bad people want him to fail, it's like they don't even care about the impact it would have on us US citizens.

So yeah I want Trump to do good, just like how I wanted Bush and Obama to do good.

Whatever, I haven't seen any lies about Trump, but I have seen a massive amount of lies, made-up stories and exaggeration against everyone democratic or liberal.

I hear hate about trump constantly and if you're a supporter you gotta be in the Trump closet because if you come out to anyone get ready for the hate train.

I kinda defend him because the media and the people who hate him hate everything about him so deeply that they've lost it imo. He doesn't even breathe correctly for some people.
