What Kind Of Human Being Would Support A Donald Trump For Anything Let Alone The Presidency?

Indeed what sort of human being incorporating any notion of compassion, fairness or good sense would support a lowlife like Donald J. Trump? Who are they that find comfort and assurance in a compulsive liar as their leader? Who sleeps sound at night with a man fanning the flames of a nuclear holocaust at the drop of a hat?

What kind of person says let’s just give the man a chance, a man who built his political carrier on racism, and continues to prove his racism at every opportunity — Charlottesville for starters — or finds it amusing to attack women in every way possible.

What kind of person says about Trump that I love the guy more and more everyday, a leader in a dangerous world where cooperation is critical for the survival of all of us yet he runs around lighting every fuse of destruction he can find?

What kind of folks are so self absorbed that any play upon their primitive tribal impulse will set them cheering wildly for a man who never seems to run out of backstabbing opportunities. How about it, NFL owners?

Indeed, my friends how much unbeliever in evilness is required to make believe in President Trump possible?
