I follow American politics more closely than I do UK and I used to be a democrat supporter. Over the last few years I've come to prefer the Republicans and I get so much abuse from family and friends since I came out as a Republican and Trump supporter.

Why are people so hateful? The more they are rude, the more I move to the right.

Because, to most sane people, there's no logical reason why you'd support someone with as long a list of personality defects, character flaws, logical and political errors, legal miscalculations, incidents of proven cheating, and laundry list of bankruptcies and incompetencies.

Insulting you is, obviously, not what someone should do. But your guy loves doing it to everyone, so why not join in?

Surely you get the irony of disliking abuse and liking Trump who does nothing but abuse?

Supporting Republicanism. Fine. That's just a political point of view. No drama there. (Though the current GOP is too filled with schemers than people actually out to make the place better)

Because Trump and his support base are not exactly civilized people. The right was not vilified like this when it had people of reasonable moral character such as John McCain...

Just look at the man...

In all seriousness, people who dislike Trump dislike him with a passion. He stands for and has said some pretty extreme things, to say you support those says a lot about you, for better or worse ( generally people would consider it the latter ).

"Supporting Trump" at this point is not a valid opinion and history will judge those who did in the same way we judge people who supported Mussolini

it's probably a sock puppet tbh - don't think anyone is buying "but the far left!" as an excuse for voting republican this time around

I'm not going to be rude, because I'm not a rude person. But I am utterly bemused as to how anyone could find Donald Trump's politics, character and behaviour the least bit defensible. So I understand that others might respond a little more vigorously. Why and how can you support him?

the far left are way weaker than the far right (and some deluded elements of the far left) think they are.
The far right is a lot stronger than the far right think they are .

So your answer to "trump is bad" is "so is the other guy"?

Real productive.

Indeed they are. And there's something rotten at the core of most governments. But Donald Trump places himself at the more extreme unpleasant end of the range. Just because a situation is bad gives little excuse to align with the worst end of it.
