The majority of voters did not vote for him but with our electoral system here he is. It is amazing how many people will admit he's a lying cheating crooked narcissist in his personal and business life but somehow think he will serve our country honorably.Now, now Ox, if you're not nice our 'murrican friends won't come out to play. Remember, an awful lot of them voted for The Don /forum/images/smilies/tango_face_wink.png
Great observation. I suppose someone could argue however that every president's personal life has shadows but they manage to not bring that to the job so much. The Don seems unique in that he behaves exactly the same regardless of where he is/what he's doing. At least he's consistent. At least he's someone who you can truly say 'what you see is what you get'. Having said that I suspect the American people have had enough of what they are seeing/getting (?)...

I am not sure that anybody thinks that he will serve the country honorably. Most likely he is just considered a useful idiot tool by some groups who are motivated solely by their narrow special interests. For instance, white supremacists/racists who are less educated, bigoted and feel threatened by the browning of the country. The border wall enthusiasts in the southern border states who are distressed by the immigrants, illegal or otherwise. The NRA/gun nuts who have sunk small fortunes into their personal weapons collections and somehow feel that an assault rifle, a weapon of war is justified under the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution without any background checks or limits. The evangelicals who seem to romanticize the Crusades and seek to remove the separation of Church and State in a secular nation. The anti-abortion folks who hope that increased procreation by white folk can reduce the need for immigrants and restore the good old days. The super rich who feel that Trump’s tax cuts for them and reducing the benefits to the disadvantaged is just fine and dandy and label any move to greater equity in society as socialism or worse, communism. The oil and coal sector which cannot permit a significant shift to renewable resources to address the climate change problem. Of course, Putin and his cronies would like to see the US weakened economically and militarily and have civil strife here........ It is amazing how many people will admit he's a lying cheating crooked narcissist in his personal and business life but somehow think he will serve our country honorably.
