Something I’ve wondered since Jan. 20 about those who backed the Lügenorange.
Does any of this embarrass you? Any of the shit with Michael Flynn and Russia? Any of the ridiculous things Trump says, like threatening to “destroy the career” of a state legislator? Any of the ludicrous comments and promises he makes? His complete lack of understanding of the way the government actually functions? His complete lack of knowledge about the United States’s relationships with other countries? The disastrous and unnecessary military mission in Yemen? The fact that he is literally doing the things he said he was going to do, like tearing families apart? The demonstrable lies? Does any of it make a dent with you?
But he comes up with the same answer I do:
I realized that it doesn’t.
So what’s left?
Shame is a powerful tool. We need to deploy it more and make Trump’s ardent supporters feel like outcasts for denying reality.
