Trump Log #21

If Trump were caught on video havng sex with a donkey while burning an American flag and singing the Russian national anthem, he wouldn't lose a single one of his supporters. He mentioned this phenomenon during the election that he could shoot someone and it wouldn't affect his campaign. Regardless of how bad of a President this guy is, it will not change the mind of his base. I have seen some detractors who regret voting for him, but his core base of supporters have remained loyal. I don't expect this to change. He was elected by some very dumb people with a dim view of reality and also, by the top .1 % richest people who are so greedy and corruptible that all they care about is their own net worth regardless who he hurts in the process. No time or energy should be spent trying to change their minds. We don't need them to impeach this man. We just need the political will. They are the minority, vocal yes, but very small.
