Your taxes are lower and your GDP is up.

Wtf is your problem? Seriously...


No problem.

I just asked a question because I'm trying to understand.

Grambler thanks for answering.


Trying to understand what? That hard working people have had their lives improved since Trump took office?

Honestly, the average adult doesn't give a single sh1t about Trump's misgivings. They care about their families and their future and Right now, anyone with half a brain can see that things are looking good.

Because that’s what we do, those of us in the basket of deplorables. Just like I’m sure you defended everything Hillary does .


Again.
Wrong.

You won't see me defending her.

Who's taxes the 1%? Those living in Bama? Most people actually will see them go up.

Perhaps the Trump supporters seem to defend EVERYTHING because there is little good to point at. The OP is spot on. People are defending the flag coloring as vehemently as they do the No Russian collusion narrative.

We get it hes your guy but at some point you get fed up. I like many wonder where that is.

Ok.
I should have said most.

From what I see most active members that support him defend everything.

Look at this thread though. I get called out for just asking a question.
How can we have a discussion if people can't even as a question

About the flag -- it wasn't about him -- I don't think he gave a crap.

To blindly & continuously defend this narcissistic, egotistical, man-child -- who is unqualified for the position he holds is ludicrous.

I've yet to comprehend defense and support of Trump.

Yes, you would perfectly represent the inverse of the people the OP is worried about.

Because most of his followers are so personally invested at this point that they take it personal when someone calls him on his dumb@$$ery.

They’ve been programmed to believe themselves and their politics are inseparable. One in the same.

All part of the plan for blind obedience to the government.

He isn't "my guy" dude as I'm not even a US citizen. It's just that as an outsider looking in, I would be pretty happy as a US citizen if my taxes were lowered and the GDP was doubled up.

But that's just me...

You have already answered your own question. Your thread title confirms your bias, and an inability to see that this isn't a left or right issue, but rather a human trait. We are tribal. It's in our nature to be so, because survival of the species(group) depends on it. To understand the other group, simply be willing to observe your own.

Your question to his supporters "why must you defend absolutely everything (Trump says or does)?
Because the MSM attacks everything Trump says or does.

Find a legitimate criticism then maybe will listen.

Coloring ain't one of them.

I agree with the OP that Trump supporters will defend anything, often times with really odd rebuttals that don't really make sense (at least to me).

However I find the same with those who thought Obama was some knight in shining armor. Except when I bring up some of the blights of his presidency like the fact he went after more journalists and whistle blowers than any presidential admin in history combined... I usually don't get a reply.

Every president have their blind loyalists.

Really OP lol?

Maybe if we didnt have a ridiculously stupid thread about his coloring abilities we wouldnt have to run in and defend him.

The better question is why does the left hate every single thing he says or does.

I see it from both sides, if I make fun of Cheetolini someone inadvertently thinks I love the Hillbot and vice versa. People need to laugh at these dumbasses more, it would make your life more joyful.

It ALL boils down to one simple thing.

A Democrat did not get elected.

This is a good point. Their bullying is on matters so trivial, so banal, for instance about words and (oh lord) coloring, that the story about the boy who cries wolf is playing itself out in real time.

You think you're this "great" debater.

I stopped reading your posts a long time ago.

The only reason we defend him is because some idiot leftist wrote a thread bashing him.

Whhat do you think his supporters are going to do when you write the thread?

Every single issue they have amounts to nothing more than confirmation bias.

Rinse and Repeat.
