QUESTION OFTEN ASKED ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Some people speak out about Trump's atrocities. But others stay silent, who used to whine so much about Obama. I can't imagine Obama refusing to reveal his taxes, and so on. So why do those of you who stay silent now accept so much from Trump? Because he's white?
Millions of people are asking similar questions. As near as I can tell, as long as Trump gives them the illusion that he is their savior from the liberal agenda, he can say and do anything.
Trump supporters see politicians as corrupt liars so the fact that Trump is a liar and corrupt is okay as long as he convinces them that he'll do what they want. They want refugees denied entrance because they are "terrorists." They want Muslims out of the country because Muslims = ISIS. They want LBGT agenda shut down because many are homophobic. They want America protected from ISIS so all our oil driven wars are sold as fighting bad guys and ISIS related enemies. Whatever funds needed are okay. They want their Christian god front and center. They want their wall to keep out immigrants because they falsely believe immigrants take their jobs, rape their women and rob the people. They want public lands back into the private sector. They want regulations on corporations dialed back because pollution is not as harmful as government interference. They support oil and don't care whether alternative energy is developed since they believe there's so much oil to exploit in the world. They view the poor as people who are lazy and worthless and draining their precious tax dollars. They view health care not as a right but as something you should access with your hard earned money and if you can't afford it, that's not their problem. They largely don't support raising wages because they believe consumer products will get too expensive, but they have no problem with CEO's making $15 million a year to $150 million a year.
As long as their agenda is being met, Trump can do anything. They also hate the Dems and liberal agenda to the point of allowing Trump to be a vile person so long as he destroys the "other" side because the other side is what they see as the problem with everything in their lives. That's my take at the moment.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
