'Snowflakes, clutching pearls, triggered and fainting' all in one short sentence. Well done.

You missed out TDS, Dims and SJW. Maybe you can squeeze those in next time?

Be sure to mix 'em up so you don't sound repetitive or unoriginal.

Yes that too. I'm sure they'll tick 'em all off by the end of the thread.

Here's what matters.

Someone called Trump "the second coming" and instead of ignoring that statement, Trump publicized it and thanked him for it.

That. Is. Bonkers.

Sane people do not do this.
Someone gave Trump a compliment, and he repeated it. People do it all of the time when books are written in the acknowledgments.

The God reference is over the top - but other than that... whatever. It may change 2 or 3 votes among the 120 million voting public and illegal/dead participants.

Right?? People with a functioning brain can see that.

It pretty much separates out the "deplorable" from the regular Trump voter......it turns out that figure ends up to be about 1/2 of Trump supporters (at this point).....

The same number keeps showing up. A poll this week showed that only 1/2 of Trump voters would put some blame on him for a Recession. Same people.

Put into a simplistic fashion, this group excuses ANYTHING he says or does and treats him like a King. That's deplorable, IMHO. We don't have Monarchs here.

No, Jimmy Page or Eric Clapton don't quote "Clapton is God" when someone else says that...let alone a Pol in high office. You are making excuses that probably you don't even buy (IMHO). There is a difference between being full of yourself and actual sane human behavior and our elected officials should evidence the later.

This should be blasphemous to the US Christian crowd, but they'll lap it up and proclaim his greatness.
If I was still a believer, I'd have to seriously be wondering if Trump was the anti-Christ. In no way could I support him. I think the American evangelical right would worship the devil himself if he promised them power and to end abortion and gay rights.

Drip Drip Drip...is the deal. I think you underestimate the numbers involved.

The recent Fox poll and others have shown the that "base" remains in the 42% - BUT, the disapproval rate increased by 5 percentage point. That is a massive move. Each 1% is about 2 Million Americans - or, using your voting statistics, 1.2 Million.

Being as Trump lost the popular vote and often won the EC by a very tiny number, these swings matter big time. If 5% more people disapprove, that's 6 Million voters. Then there are the other demo changes - more young people are getting older each day, more old people dying off and more people are members of one minority or another.

It's not 2 or 3 votes. Trumps "God" thing is tied in with all the other "go back to your chithole" stuff and "we have X" stuff and, put together, it can turn off millions.

It cannot "turn on" millions of new people since those people do not exist.

Deplorable?? That's so 2016.

We are all white supremacists in 2019.

You need to keep up.

Dems have nothing or no one to offer to the country - so you call people names and falsely accuse people. That's been the strategy since 2016. That's pretty much the 2020 platform. Good luck with that...

No sane person cheerfully acknowledges other people referring to them as the Messiah.

Who cares about votes? The president is mentally ill. A mentally ill person is in charge of the country. This is a crisis.

Not to mention a self proclaimed genus, and winner of the Man of the Year award in Michigan.
