Thanks, I'm completely fascinated by the psychology of anyone who stuck with him for 3 years but could be persuadable. I have a hard time believing these people exist, but I trust you, and I would love to sit down with these people for a couple hours.tennbengal wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 2:08 pmSeveral persons, actually. Accumulation. SO much that they just trail off or admit that there's problems.The Sybian wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 1:52 pmVery curious, was there a final straw moment? Or one line crossed that triggered this person? I fear there might be a large contingent of people voting for Trump, but afraid to admit it. I think that's a large part of the polls showing Hillary so far ahead in 2016.
ETA - I am not talking about the core who would have marched in Charlottsville - I am talking about the ones at the edges that pretend their silence isn't complicity - that crew is finding it harder to pretend. And some of them around my workplace won't vote for him again. I think there's others out there.
I gave up talking to my intelligent friend who is still backing Trump. He fully acknowledges Trump is a horrible person, but he is so focused on the Clintons being evil, he doesn't care. If anything, he thinks Trump is hilarious and thinks the batshit cray stuff is intentional and meant to be funny. I haven't gotten him to answer many questions, because he is so riled up over BLM being founded by admitted Marxists and the shortcomings of Biden, that I can't fight my way through his questions to change the topic. The problem is, he'll call me with 20 topics wanting to understand how a Liberal could believe or support something, because his Liberal friends are basically brainwashed cultists. I've met some, those are my words and assessment, not his. He went silent on FB for years, but now is hellbent on proving the MSM have been hellbent on destroying Trump since before he ran, posting positive stories or Trump achievement the MSM doesn't cover, or stuff like the black guy who killed the white child, or a white guy who killed a black cop. The closest I get to an answer is that the Russia hoax was started by two FBI agents who lied because they admittedly wanted to take down Trump, and that's all the Left have and can't let it go. I did get him to admit he was duped by the antifa.com website leading to a Biden site when I got him to concede it was a fake site created by Russian intelligence. He just laughed and went on to the next thing.
