Cynicism no, that is basic democracy. Democracy depends on which topics are important to which group of voters. And I dare say that the grabbing of women is not high on the list of his supporters. This is as hard to understand as the fact that people have not turned away from him after reading his tweets.
Human psychology works differently. You will have more positive memories of me giving you 1000$ once a year, than of me giving you 100$ each months. And more importantly the one time bonus payment will be more strongly connected to the tax cuts in the mind of his supporters this way. With the additional bonus that the form of it forms no basis for an ongoing entitlement in the future.
Seahawk, it seems you fancy yourself some sort of genius with some particularly keen, sui generis insight into how the human mind works, but I suspect you use this appearance as a cloak for your own personal views, as you never consider other perspectives from the same feigned academic/political scientist/psychological slant.
If your point is that Trump has supporters who will support him no matter what, you're preaching to the choir. At this point it's tantamount saying, "Well, even if you tell a KKK member that there's no genetic basis for claiming racial superiority, they'll still be racist." (Yeah, really? You think?) That is more or less the insight you add again and again and again and again to the discussion. Thanks for pointing out the obvious, buddy.
What seems to fail you, Ozair, and others in this and other threads is that the veracity of none of the above is up for debate. What is being remarked on is the absolute disgrace of it all. We're not questioning the legitimacy of the election. We're not advocating that he be involuntarily put in a straightjacket, ignore the Constitution, and put Hillary (someone most of us never had strong feelings of support for) into the Oval Office. Maybe your message is that the 20% of us that have as strong views against Trump (you know, we "Trump Derangement Syndrome Libtards") as those that support him just shut up and hibernate for 3 years, and, if our fears for national security, the economy, and the welfare of our fellow Americans are realized, well then SO BE IT . . . people knew what they were getting into, after all. (And, BTW, it'd be just as bad under someone else, probably even worse under that criminal b*tch HILLARY.)
As I said before, I think we've really hit a low in cynicism, relativism (without even a shred of meaningful attempt at gauging relative degree), and absolute resignation in the face of circumstances whose implications could be absolutely disastrous for the long-term health of this country and its 325 million citizens, if not the world.
