The American people knew he was a narcissistic buffoon, but they elected him anyway. Why? In a nutshell, because they believed the establishment elite are worse. Nothing has changed. They still greatly mistrust the establishment and the establishment are doing things that only further this mistrust.


The Vaccine Aristocrats​

Covid-19 cases are rising, but the "Pandemic of the Unvaccinated" blame-game campaign is the worst way to address the problem​

This is the same political story that’s dominated America since Trump arrived. Why did Americans vote for such a truth-challenged candidate? Because they trusted the political aristocracy less. How did the aristocrats respond to that damning message sent at the ballot box? They doubled the lies and doubled the scolding, increasing the mistrust. Is anyone going to bother trying to break this cycle?

The only candidate Trump beats was Hillary but the (D)'s were so insulated they were unable to see that.

When Bernie beat Hillary in places like Michigan and Wisconsin the (D)'s should have realized they had a problem but then of course, it was too late by then.

There was no way I wanted Trump to win but I really wanted Hillary to lose. Again, there is no way I wanted Biden to win but I really wanted Trump to lose.

Yep. They're doubling down on the same old same old. Opening the door for Trump, or someone worse.

They opened the door by picking Harris. Obviously she is not going to go over well and to toss her aside is going to offend many others.

People were dissatisfied with the quagmire Washington had become. Trump sold himself as a master businessman and deal maker who would get things done.
At the time, people voted for him and asked…….What do we have to lose/ How bad can he be?

We found out

People often like to blame Trump for the vast racial divide in this country.

He's not the cause of it, though. He's the result of it...

Is that why 10 million MORE voted for Trump the 2nd time around? Jumping at normalcy?

Normalcy? Thats what you guys scream about changing literally every day. Trump offered "change" from the "normalcy" thats why he won.
Do you ever actually THINK?
The people got tired of his immaturity and stupidity. In return, we got stuck with a drooling boomer that cant complete a fucking sentence.
This country is full of dumbfucks.

And yet he’s no different than Don on the big issues, but you refuse to accept it.

True. But the margins were far too close. So close that Republicans seem to have no interest in replacing him as their leader. Many Democrats are pleased by this. They think sticking with Trump will ensure Republican losses in the future. Kinda like they were pleased when he was nominated in 2016. They thought it meant they would cruise to victory.

They were wrong. Are they wrong again?
