I think it would be fair to say I made some of the first threads in support of Trump.

I feel people misunderstand why some of us support Trump.

They say “He is an A-Hole”, Impossible to deal with, Arrogant “.

Yes, I know. That is precisely why he was sent to DC.

You see, some of us have been lied to our entire lives.

We are sick about it. No matter who we sent. They abandoned us.

We feel we had no recourse. We just finally got fed up. F-it.

Along comes this rich guy. He can’t be bought.

He calls out many of the BS artists.

He is hard to deal with and makes all the long time incumbents sweat.

For the first time in a long time the DC Swamp is nervous.

And for some reason, that feels really good...

The truth is nobody likes Trump. Not even his wife.

She was horrible.

Trump was kinda funny in a uncomfortable type of way.

I voted on policy. Trump had new ideas compared to the recycled establishment policies I've seen my entire life. It's quite refreshing seeing someone follow through on those promises too, which is something I hadn't seen my entire life.

I guess I just don't get how people respect him as a human.

I understand agreeing with policies.

I understand wanting something different.

I understand hating Hillary.

I don't need to be coddled, but he is just such an disrespectful, narcissist.

If true... which I think it is to a certain extent... It really comes down to one simple fact:

Half the country hasn't realized they've been lied to their whole lives

I guess they could be delusional just as well.

That's part of it, believe it or not. All politicians are elitist, narcisistic assholes. Only a select few have been honest enough to be unappologetically arrogant and unabashedly proud. Trump is one of those and, frankly, I appreciate that. I find it far more genuine and real than all of the phony, artificially skinned, platitude slingning politicians running around out there. Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.

I couldn't stand Trump. I went to the polls in 2016 with my nose firmly plugged for fear of the smell voting between two turd sandwiches. I cast a vote for Trump because I couldn't cast a vote for the candidate that wants to ban my guns and go to war after she ditched Americans in Benghazi.

I became a Trump supporter. I wasn't one to begin with. But he convinced me with actions.

I was duped by words with Obama. I swore I wouldn't do that twice. This time I will vote for the candidate that has demonstrated real actions. That candidate is Donald Trump, and if he keeps it up it will be Donald Trump in 2020.

And I can totally respect that.

I wrote in a vote because I couldn't bring myself to vote for either.

We don't expect foreigners to like President Trump running on an America First agenda.

He is all those things.

I kind of feel like many of us gave up on government.

He was kind of a middle finger to DC.

They have done nothing but take from some of us.

It was like really ? Than you deal with him.

disrespectful, narcissist.


Is it disrespectful to call a sleazy slime-ball dirt-bag, a sleazy slime-ball dirt-bag? NO.
Is he a narcissist? Yes but please tell me one politician that isn't. They are all narcissists.
Difference is Trump doesn't try to sugar coat what he says like the consummate politician. Direct and to the point is his style. Politicians deflect and deceive. Trump is direct and emphatically to the point and that rubs some people against the grain.

That's the thing he isn't, disrespectful

He only unloads on you if you start it, and you are famous. Look at his twitter feed, average liberal Amerindians say the most vile things to him, he doesn't respond. He doesn't go after working class Americans.

IF you are trying to be in the spotlight and want to be disrespectful, you will lose. He doesn't care who you are and that's what's great. It doesn't matter what letter is after the name(D or R), if your front hole is an inny or an outy, How much melanin is in your skin. You want to play the game, odds are you won't win.

you weren't being heard so you elected a con man?

your first mistake was believing he was already rich so he couldn't be bought - that was a huge part of his con.
