Well, you and I both undersand Tump and Trumpism.
It is the final denaturing straw to todays Replican Party that started long ago with the advent of right-wing propaganda.
We both know it starts with lies.
And when the lies got too heavy, instead of denouncing Trump, these now fully collusionist Senators went along with the lies that
they knew were disgusting because they needed to hold onto power.
And meanwhile, those who were average citizens who were not at all politically savy had already been fed up with government.
They were peaved about globalism.
Globalism isn't necessarilly a bad thing in theory, and yet it is, has been very much corrupt.
Trump is a fake populist, who was a coaxing sales jerk, crying out against populism, as well as obviously a big time racist narcissisist. They Republican Senators were digusted by him, and yet they decided as a block to look the other way.
We know he won the 2016 election because people were mad, and Trump came along as a fake populist and they voted for him and he won the election with the help of lies from Russian propagandist who basically used the same playbook as the propaganda that was executed by the Replican party for decades.
And this help put him over the top against Hillary Clinton, who was disliked not only because she was a woman but also because of Bill, who aqueicsed to
neoliberalism which basically started with Ronald Reagan - which was responsible for in no small part for the globalistic inequality, and the corrupt globalism that grew and grew ever since.
Anti-globalism is now laced with fascism and nationalism, and Putin won on that score.
Anyway, polices don't matter to these people. Inflation is meme, to them. The real causes of inflation don't matter because they don't understand any policies other than distrust.
The Republicans spent all their energies on propaganda instead of policies to build sustainable economics and a better world
And it bit them in the ***, and then they all looked the other way like the jerkoffs and scumbags that they truly are.
