I get the idea of lauding Trump because of some of the things that he achieves that are aligned with one’s ideological beliefs, but being nuanced enough to state that Trump himself is deeply flawed. Not enough people do this; not enough Trump supporters are honest with themselves.

We, as liberals, often portray and label Trump’s support base as racist and bigoted. However, the Cato Institute recently carried out some research that split Trump’s supporters into five groups. Only one of those groups (American Preservationists) was deemed “to be … [Read more...] about How Can Trump Supporters Still Laud Him?

The Democratic governor also pointed fingers at Donald Trump on Sunday, accusing the president and his party of fanning the flames of division within the country. “So the president is on the stump today saying ‘the Democrats are a mob, the Democrats will bring chaos, they are leftists,’ and then coincidentally, the Republican Party in the State of New York invites a group known for violence and for hate speech,” Cuomo said, WAMC Northeast Public Radio reported, suggesting that the Proud Boys were invited specifically to cause a brawl.
