Your attempts at neatly sidestepping kev’s points regarding Trump’s sexism, racism, and xenophobia…

That’s quite the request you have made.

I’d like to see a single rational argument explaining how someone with a shred of morality would be anything but ashamed and mortified to see this man come into power

Let’s break this down. In one sentence you’re stating that anyone who is not strongly against Trump’s election is:
 — Irrational

— Immoral (or amoral)

— Shameless

Can you spot the dichotomy?

You are requesting a rational argument by way of an irrational generalization of anyone who doesn’t agree with you. Are you truly trying to understand how anyone can support President-elect Trump, or are you merely pandering to your own questionable sense of morality and superiority? Your verbiage indicates the latter. Regardless of your intent, this is how your message is perceived.

It’s not your decision how others feel about anything. Making a genuine attempt to understand their reactions to the election results would be a good starting point. Rather than questioning the moral character of people with whom you disagree [under the thinly-veiled guise of taking the moral high ground], try exercising some genuine empathy. Consider the argument, not the person making it.

I’m not defending Trump’s behaviors, policies, or actions. To put it lightly, he’s a very imperfect human being…but anyone who wasn’t emotionally involved in this electoral process could have seen this coming from a mile away.
