The president isn't doing his job, only interested in stealing election, so why is his approval 44%?

44.2% approval according to 538. Even if they are racists, why do they support him right now when he isn't doing any of the basic functions of a president?

4. The only function they care about

Is him being on their team.

And news about vaccines coming down the pipe will reflect favorably on him whether or not he had anything to do with it.

We saw in the election: half the country does not care about anything except supporting their guy. Itís not about governing, helping or defending the US, or anything like that. Itís a game. Nothing more to many people.

Iím sure you know sports fans like that. Itís why teams can have 20 losing seasons in a row and still sell tickets. These people donít see the difference between putting a ball through a hoop and governing a gorram country.

28. Which I said. But you and I and the people on DU

are not the average joe.

If a vaccine comes out now, it makes Trump look good, whether he had anything to do with it or not.

Good things happening during a presidentís term will always boost a presidentís numbers. Itís not the way it should be, but the way it is.

Interestingly Donnie has avoided the converse to a certain degree, avoiding having bad stuff reflect on him. A generous dose of IOKIYAR coupled with the cult of personality that is todayís GOP make him partially immune to things even when they are his fault (300,000 dead due to COVID mismanagement. )


Itís messed up.

34. And I can disagree with whether water is wet.

But sadly that would not get me anywhere.

What should be, is not always what is.

If People see a vaccine come out on trumps watch, Trump will get some credit. Whether he should or shouldnít. 44% approval and going up even as he abdicates responsibility and just golfs. He shouldnít, but he does.

300k people die on trumps watch, because of his mismanagement, and he still gets 70 MILLION+ votes?

That turd is well and truly polished. Shiniest lump of orange excrement youíll ever see. Itís excrement underneath. But it is shiny.

which is why he totally deserves a 3rd term, the election steal requires him to devote all of his time to preserving his right to be their savior. So he is doing exactly what he needs to be doing right now - governing the country can wait.

Probably ought to add this:

7. 44% of people who say the love the US, hate democracy.

and yearn for a rigid dictatorship that they think will resolve all their problems.

(Remember, an IQ of 100 is the median which means that half of America is below that. )

Trump has shown that all that is needed is a more competent dicatator-wannabe than him (how hard is THAT) - and that person will have 70 million people on board with a political party unwilling to do ANYTHING about it. Very disturbing indeed.

29. That's exactly it. Authoritarian-leaning losers who cheer on a wannabe dictator...

because he tells them what they want to hear and what to think. He's convinced them that he loves the country (VERY important to them) and that he cares about them as individuals.

to know how they operate. They are full of hate, and have been taught that all their problems in life are caused by the existence of people who are different from them. These are people who would starve to death if it meant that people different from them starved to death faster so they could watch.

16. Well, 72 Million Americans lived through the last 4 years ad said; "sure, give me more of that"

We've got some work to do. Donnie Dipshit, Hate Radio, Faux Need and Social Media like Facebook have shredded our social compact and societal norms

Donnie Asspickle and those other platforms I've mentioned, have given people carte blanche to be the hateful, racist, misogynistic, cruel, evil fucksticks they've always wanted to be, but societal norms and decency prevented them from being.

I believe that we've always had this thing that modified and moderated our most base instincts.

That something was our social compact.

The world has always had dipshits everywhere. Hell, some of my inner most thoughts are pretty dipshitty at times, but the standards of acceptable morality and decency keeps those disgusting instincts buried.

Remove the things that make certain behaviors and beliefs "unacceptable", and anything goes.

We function as a society, because despite the fact that I want to wring someone's neck, societal norms don't accept me wringing someone's neck.

I worked with some serious fucksticks in the Navy. These were people I wouldn't trust around my children, but because society had standards of decency, ethics and morality, when push came to shove, they did the right thing.

They didn't do that because they weren't assholes. They did the right thing because society demanded that they do the right thing.

For millions of Americans, that societal norm doesn't exist anymore.

That should scare the fuck out of us, but it should also motivate us to restore our societal contract...

Before it's too fucking late.

27. I think so

One of the great COs I served with in the Navy once said that he "hated that saying, do the right thing when no one is looking". He insisted that the correct thing was to "do the right thing when EVERYONE is looking".

Point being that the example you display enforces ethics and morality.

We expect that even a racist firefighter would run into a burning building to rescue people of a different race. That should be what society demands.

Donnie Dipshit, Retrumplicans, Hate Radio, Faux News and social media would not only excuse the racist firefighter if he decided to let people die in a burning building, they would defend and justify his act.

21. He Pushes Their Buttons

I've seen several interviews with ever-Trumpers and they don't care that he's self-serving or racist (some of them like that about him) or ethically bankrupt or a compulsive liar...one lady said, "He works for me every day." I quite frankly can't think of a single thing he did for that lady.

The question will be reflected on for decades to come...
