That’s not bias, but blindness. It’s pretty much a cult.

That’s interesting. People who support President Trump, with very few exceptions, know that he has faults and has made and continues to make mistakes. They do not refuse to see that, but are focused more on his grand policy initiatives to improve the economy, cut taxes, secure the border and other promises made during his campaign. This, they contend, is why they continue to support him .

They also generally regarded Clinton’s supporters as being “blind” to what they perceived as incompetence and corruption that cast a long and dark shadow over her career as a public servant. They were flabbergasted that Clinton’s supporters could not see, what appeared so obvious to them, that she would inflict great harm upon our nation if elected. They also viewed her as a compulsive liar who had compiled a legacy of failures resulting from her poor judgement (Libya, Benghazi, her email, etc).

The large majority of President Trump’s supporters voted for him, not because they viewed him as an ideal candidate who could do no wrong, but because they feared that his opponent represented a much greater threat to our country.

I understand this frustrates you, but this is the reality. The election was held but the pre-election attitudes, supported by personal bias and deeply held ideological beliefs, continue to persist. This diametric, political polarization that has infected the media, government, institutions of learning, public/private discourse, and world opinion, is so dangerously intense that it now represents a grave threat to our nation.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
