    He tells people whatever they want to hear. His book, "The Art of the Deal" made it clear that was his normal business practice, and his other books, like "Think Big" and "Why We Want You to Be Rich" show it is also his default practice in his personal life. Classic narcissistic sociopath. People will follow and obey anyone who consistently tells them what they want to hear.

    Do you have any idea how your post illustrates the concept in Psychology of the "Projection" defense mechanism? It's very common among people who find themselves amiss of any arguments to rebut a solid point.

    Correct. I don't view it as a circus at all.

    Neither does the majority of voters that vote the incompetent out of office.


    Afterall, our constitution places no person above the law. President included.
    Hopefully, the USSC still believes in that.

    Very few Biden followers are followers of Biden himself.
    They are either democrat in belief or not for a 2x impeached incompetent incumbent loser.

    It boils down to the lesser of 2 evils. And the race isn't close as to the winner of evil contest.
    It was already voted out for incompetence.

    The OP asks the question, "Trump is a bad person. Why would anybody vote for him?"

    Fair enough... and yes, IMHO, Trump really is a bad person. He has lied, distorted, misrepresented, and "changed-the-deal" whenever it suited him. So, why would anybody vote for him? Only one reason, really -- because with all his laundry list of faults, the Biden regime, Biden's handlers, Biden's 'woke' minions and America-hating toilet dwellers are even WORSE.

    Simple question... simple answer. But, I'll hasten to add I have no doubt that whoever the Democrats finally decide to nominate in August will win the election... mostly because of promises to provide all the welfare-sucking slackers and parasites with even more 'free stuff' than Democrat politicians do already.... :roll:

    The lesser of two evils is also double edged.

    I guess my nobility level just isn't high enough for me to be a Democrat.

    The point is, there is no cult of Biden followers.

    Me either.
    Not a fan of any political party.

    But, that wasn't something I was even referring to. So I don't know how that was your response.

    Independent voters are increasing in numbers.

    From someone's subjective point of view, no one appointed is ever the "most qualified."

    It is a subjective judgment

    Taking in to account all her qualifications, she was an ideal choice to fill the vacancy.

    There is no objective measure of what some like to characterize, from their perspective, as "the top."

    But not as open or notorious -- or disgraceful -- as the cult of Trump.

    For most of the Supreme Court's history, the essential qualifications were to be male and white.

    Ketanji Brown Jackson graduated magna cum laude, from Harvard-Radcliffe College, and received her J.D., cum laude from Harvard Law School. She served as a law clerk for Justice Stephen Breyer She worked as an attorney at the U.S. Sentencing Commission, and she served as an assistant federal public defender in Washington, D.C. She served as a Vice Chair and Commissioner on the U.S. Sentencing Commission, and was appointed to the Defender Services Committee of the Judicial Conference and the Supreme Court Fellows Commission. No fellow justice, whether you believe them to be qualified or unqualified, brings her valuable experience and perspective to the Supreme Court. No other public defender has ever served on the Supreme Court,

    she wasn't anywhere near being seen as a top jurist. like it or not, white males were the group that had the most top legal scholars
