Instead, Trump has only sacrificed them on the cross of his own ego.
Trump was never – and never could have been – their or our Savior. Trump has always been a part of the Establishment his followers detest. His entire life is one of self-interest and self-aggrandizement fueled by an unrelenting narcissism.
Yet many who believed in him did so because of, not in spite of, his delusions of grandeur. They were looking for a strong man to save the Republic and, instead, nominated a bully and would-be tyrant.
From the beginning, Trump was destined to lose. A liberal posing as a conservative and running as a Republican could never win against a liberal (or even a socialist) running as a Democrat.
Despite Trump’s daily lies and reversals of policy positions, his support surged among the faithful. Even when it was obvious that Trump was mentally unhinged, his followers persisted. Even though Trump’s core “principles” became “flexible” and “negotiable,” they insisted that Trump would do what they want him to do.
When Trump loses – and he will lose – Trump worshippers will have to reconcile themselves to reality. Some won’t. Some are as obstinate and bullying as Trump. Narcissists don’t know how to repent or how to admit error.
For those who are capable of facing reality and being held accountable, this handy outline was designed just for you:
In contrast, #ForeverTrump forever owes a debt to America.
