I like how the term “Never Trumper” is used to negate any viewpoint from a Republican who is honest enough to call Trump out for what he is. It’s such a easy shorthand for people who want to remain willfully ignorant. “Oh he’s a ‘Never Trumper’? That’s a relief, I don’t have to consider what he’s saying.’
It’s the same fucking thing they’ve done with their “Fake News” shit. ‘Oh it’s an article from the Washington Post?’ I don’t need to read it then.” Only a completely bankrupt, political party would be so invested in keeping people as ignorant as they can. The scariest part is people want to cling to their beliefs so badly that they are happy to remain ignorant and “right” if you give them the slightest chance.
You’ve got people looking up from their Ramen noodles to cheer for the bankers and the Dow Jones, because it’s the only thing they have left to convince themselves Trump has been anything but an embarrassing disaster.
