There is a basic going on out there in America…..
About 60% of Americans don’t support or approve of their President….
About 40% of Americans support or approve of him even if they KNOW he lies….
Donald Trump is dragging America BACK to that time when it was White and those NOT so?
Were kept at Arms length in employment, schools, places to live and anything else….
Republicans have decided that they will stand by while their party leader tries to co-op the nations Federal cops and Spy’s…..Something that one would find unheard of just 2 years ago….
The last 24 hours have produced two guys that Trump trusted to work for him closely being shown as crooks…
It doesn’t matter to that 40% of Trump supporters and right now to many Republican lawmakers….
They seem to be more afraid of Trump then standing up for the law….
Why were Trump’s supporters so convinced that Hillary Clinton was the more corrupt candidate even as reporters uncovered far more damning evidence about Trump’s foundation than they did about Clinton’s? Likely because Hillary’s candidacy threatened traditional gender roles. For many Americans, female ambition—especially in service of a feminist agenda—in and of itself represents a form of corruption. “When female politicians were described as power-seeking,” noted the Yale researchers Victoria Brescoll and Tyler Okimoto in a 2010 study, “participants experienced feelings of moral outrage (i.e., contempt, anger, and/or disgust).”
Cohen’s admission makes it harder for Republicans to claim Trump didn’t violate the law. But it doesn’t really matter. For many Republicans, Trump remains uncorrupt—indeed, anti-corrupt—because what they fear most isn’t the corruption of American law; it’s the corruption of America’s traditional identity. And in the struggle against that form of corruption—the kind embodied by Cristhian Rivera—Trump isn’t the problem. He’s the solution.
