    This question is just for liberals and other non Trump supporters

    Every right winger I have discussed this with says that the reason the left opposes Trump so much is because we are still mad that he beat Hillary and all the opposition he has seen is just an effort to either remove him from office and install Hillary, or at least punish him for beating Hillary in the election. I was angry about the way Trump won as well, but that is not the reason I dislike him so much. Since his inauguration, he has shown his incompetence, ignorance, and total lack of interest in doing anything for anyone but himself and others who are as rich as he is. He accepts conspiracy theories, and the word of enemy dictators over the facts as presented by his own investigative agencies, and a host of other things that make him unqualified to hold the position of POTUS.

    My question is this Is your opposition to Trump an effort to remove a duly elected president and install Hillary in his place, or are there other reasons for your dislike of him? Be specific.

    Sure Trump is annoying, like how he said it was simple to fix health care, then later said, "who knew health care could be so complicated?"
    It is not that Trump was wrong or lying when he said he had a simple fix, but that health care really is simple to fix, and I don't think he wants to admit that.
    The solution to health care is to end the 1957 bill that allowed employers to give employees tax free benefits, like health insurance.

    But other than being obnoxious, Trump has done much better than all the presidents who started wars or refused to end them.

    By the way, I am an extreme left winger, but am totally against gun control.

    The left is not mad that Trump beat Hillary, because Hillary if not very left, and most leftists did not like Hillary very much.

    Yet revenge for Hillary is the reason every right winger I saw claimed to be the reason for so much opposition to Trump.

    It's easy to understand.

    For a political ideology that depends on fear, suspicion and hatred, an enemy is absolutely necessary. Trump's political enemy, and by extemsion the political enemy of his base, must be in the first row of any rationale to support him. And, likewise, those who do not support him must have been as fully in the tank of Hillary as they are with the Donald.

    And deflecting all evidence of Trump's corruption and immorality is a crutch for his supporters. Why not blame criticism on something they see as legitimate while ignoring what everyone else sees as impeachable behavior? Citing any of Trump's less than virtuous behavior would lend legitimacy to the calls for his impeachment and removal.

    Sure Trump is deliberately cruel in policy, corrupt in deeds, lying in words, and boorishly immature in actions. But saying so makes them real. And the last things Trumpians are interested in is reality. They like the bright, shiny things more than the intangibles of truth, nobility and character.
