    People who say the rest of the Republicans are fine are also just wilfully ignorant or intentionally misleading. They’re the ones who voted Trump in to begin with and he wasn’t ever hiding who he truly was so they don’t have the excuse that they didn’t see this coming.

      It’s almost like they’re looking in the mirror saying “I, the rest of Republicans, am fine” like they want to sleep at night after sentencing people unlike them to death

      I agree. I watched a Hillary debate for the first time the other night… The signs were there, ffs.

      There is a third option, which is a right wing strategy im seeing more and more:

      They cherry pick.

      Basically when someone says the rest of the republicans are fine, they might mean there are a couple that are normal in isolation.

      This tactic works the other way too. When they criticize the left, it’s the small, loud minority that are much easier to debate (with a cherry picked audience).

      I have never, ever, heard a right wing person criticize or attack things like worker rights, consumer rights, or desiring equality. They know they can’t. They only pick battles they can win and extrapolate from that.
