    That may explain why president seemed a bit uncertain in this recent Twitter fusillade. Unlike many of his all-cap attacks, he ended his threat to withhold federal funds with a question mark, not an exclamation point.
    Even agreeing with his political views, you must feel embarrassed championing someone like this?

    Asking or telling?

    Just wondered as not sure whether you have used a ? rather than a ! by mistake.

    I can't understand your point. It seems perhaps to be that something is betokened by non-standard punctuation. But your thread header is phrased but not punctuated as a question while your single sentence post is phrased as a declarative sentence but then given a question mark.

    Well that explains my question.

    I wonder if I know people who secretly support Trump.

    Well you see, like Donald, I wasn't sure either whether to use a ! or a ?

      Me?

      I love how there is no neutrality on internet forums. Either you are a liberal, or you are (these days) a Trumpist.

      I enjoy dancing between the two groups and watch the labels they give me.

      Was it a rhetorical question? Which, bearing in mind your hitherto snowflake-esque angst at Mr Trump's MO, I assume it was.

      If I'm right then "?" would be inappropriate.

      Many don't think that far into it. They see someone who represents their nationalistic beliefs and are drawn to him. It's become a religion, with Trump as the prophet.

      You are mistaking ridicule for fear.

      But one thing is true, I would love to understand more of the psychology behind people idolizing Donald.
