OK — I got some sort of “defense” from a Trump supporter.

Yeah, have also noticed the same pattern among the Trump apologists. Kinda sad, but probably not surprising that ‘critical thinking’ doesn’t seem to be their strong suit. Although the relentless whining and ‘victimhood’ reminds me of a quote from Eric Hoffer, written back in 1951, but still amazingly ‘apropos’ even these days.

“It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts. Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from their sense of inadequacy and impotence. And we cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with them. They feel our generosity as oppression.
