The Two Types of Trump Supporters

By this point, any minimally informed person of good will should be able to judge whether Trump is morally and mentally fit to be president of the United States. There now remain only two types of people who would vote for him under any circumstances: (i) those who are driven by greed, resentment, or nihilism, and (ii) those who are deluded or have been misled. As Jennifer Rubin recently stated in one of her Washington Post columns: “Republicans’ failure to convict {Trump} at his Senate impeachment trial and willingness to line up behind him as their nominee make them morally culpable for his conduct.” It’s both shocking and tragic that the Republican Party has descended to such a base moral plane.
