Because first and foremost, those who voted for him would still not believe it, on the basis of their entitlement to their own facts – just like their champion conveniently claims. Because those who voted for him would still consider that this does not matter as he is politically needed, this outweighing that. Because any such facts are not relevant when what is at stake is avoiding a liberal crooked costly and liberticidal federal government. Just like it does not matter, in Realpolitik, that Kim is an oppressor and a murderer, if he is now ready to abandon nuclear weapons if we give him standing. Because those who voted for Trump would consider this a conspiration designed by occult liberal forces to deprive them of their electoral college victory. In politics, the ends justify the means. Manafort and Cohen will go down for money laundering, tax fraud, corruption or else – because they are not protected by the above. They were high on power – but will go down because they are disposable. Like anyone around him. But not him.
Let’s face it, no other politician would have survived even one tenth of what was already revealed on Trump, his relationship to women, his shady business dealings, his political cluelessness and inconsistencies, the chaos and disruption he brought to government, his lack of morality and his compulsive lying. Every day, some go for just a fraction of that. Yet more than 40% of Americans approve of his actions and believe he is needed. Giuliani said that Trump was unaware of the consulting fees received by Michael Cohen and, know what, it does not matter because this will not hurt him either. It just entertains the liberals’ frustration and conviction that Trump is dishonest and should not hold office. Why is that? Disinformation? Distrust in the media and facts? Inability to regard truth over belief? The reassurance feelings and fantasy give – over scarce truth? Conservative evangelical irrationality fueling beliefs over reason – who can be wrong when talking to God and instructed by him? Probably all of the above. Democracy is people divided on political opinions. Not people divided on belief over reality.
