    Default Why...?

    Why do Trumpers double-down on Trump as a president? Where’s their logic? What’s his logic?

    I guess for me it is a case of "look at the alternatives."
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Many trump voters in my view are refugees of the ever increasing tribalism in both our politics and media. So Trump for many was the rejection of all that more so than wow what a great guy. So now as tribalism as only increased accepting anything that is from what they were escaping from is rejected. It is in many ways a rejection more so than acceptance for many.
    The mistake is too many dismiss as racist, stupid etc.... and fail to appreciate the dynamic that produced trump to begin with. It is why I feel Trump is a symptom of tribalism and those that dismiss and label him as the problem only reinforce why so many rejected traditional candidates to begin with. Once you appreciate what is rejected the double down as you say is totally rational even if you disagree with it.

    No shit. The Trump supporters have already said over and over again why they support his policies vs the anti-America life long politicians that don't do shit for America.

    Fuck yeah they did. Sliced it, dissected it, broke it down and explained it to even before the election. But the blind ones thought it was still 1996. Shit, some still do.

    Yeah, nothing more pro-America than advancing your business interests in Turkey and Russia...

    1996 Balance Tour was over and VH never seemed to really ever get back on track
