    I don't need a New Yorker article to tell me that Trump makes weak people feel good about themselves, that they feel they're the only true guardians of liberty, and that they feel intimidated by anyone who's different.

    Article was useless, btw.
    Opportunity missed, I guess. Roll on gents.

    OK, the chain of logic escapes me. What does this article have to do with Trump voters?

    I'm not really following it either.. Justifying persecution of one group because they take care of another? Our evil things are countered by the good things we do?

    I have no trouble giving non-derisive explanations of why Trump voters exist, but what's that got to do with this?

    I have found 3 groups of "Trump voters:"

    1. My parents. They vote for the R. They'll always vote for the R. The R is love, the R is life.
    2. My hometown. Because they're tired of libs in the cities making them feel inferior. Trump speaks to their basic need for a champion.
    3. Some wealthy people I know. Because fuck the poor, lower my taxes.

    Seems to escape all of you.

    No worries, just bolsters the argument tbqh, that not a single one of you can read that piece and extrapolate why, perhaps, some voters don't really like Democrats (and their urban elitist base) much. And why some voters feel as they do, to the point of supporting a chucklefuck like Trump over an experienced and talented public servant like say, all the (R)'s he beat, and Ms. Clinton.

    I'd take more time to explain, but I know where these exchanges tend to go. In before the usual trio and their copyapasta posts of "it's all about racism and bigotry and FOX News lies and nothing else!!!"

    Your post and those one above it perfectly exemplify the average Trump voter. Willing to fuck their country over to fuck over those asshole lefties on the coast who make them feel inferior, with their money and success and gay loving ways and stuff.

    So Trump voters exist because Christian cows told them to eat chicken? That makes...more sense than it should.

    Mark Blyth makes a far better argument.

    Take a look at his ideas surrounding global Trumpism.

    it's not at all that we don't understand: we understand quite well (although I feel like you're skipping over the offended white privilege element, which is a huge factor however much you dislike recognising that). It's been obvious since 2015 that trump was the living avatar of the modern American right, and I and others have been saying so in so many words. We're not talking about it for the same reason that we're not discussing the wetness of water or the height of Mt Everest or whether a metre is longer than a yard.

    People support Trump and R because fuck urban elites and their boycott of homophobic chicken, or fuck urban elites and the fact that their chicken boycott couldn't even keep chick fil a out of NYC?

    The trouble is, The Thief In Chief expects his lawyers to be partners in illicit activity. Thugs like Cohen were fine with this. People with actual careers not so much.

    That goes both ways my friend.

    The nastiness of this administration and its supporters hasn't exactly been winning over the other 50-60% of the country.

    Only right wing feelings need to be considered. They can call us "libtards" and "cucks" and that's just their little bit of banter.
