America seems to be divided place as never before. There are those people that are sane, rational, thinking people, dealing in facts and data and, you know, reality. Then there are Trump voters. That are insane, irrational, brainless people, who believe easily disproved things regardless of the concrete evidence right in front of their eyes.
If you’ve ever argued with a Trump voter before, you know they won’t stop believing any of their insane talking points no matter how much reality you show them. Facts do not matter to them. They will blindly follow their Trumpkin no matter what.
Here are seven things that were brought to our attention by Alternet that are patently and provably untrue, and that Trump supporters cling to regardless:
1. Trump is a deeply devoted Christian.
Trump was recently invited to speak at Jerry Falwell Jr.’s Liberty University, despite him being the most morally degenerate man to ever set foot on that campus. Trump is a serial sexual assaulter who brags about grabbing women by the p****y and defrauded American citizens out of millions of dollars by running a scam university. Something tells me that Jesus wouldn’t be doing those things.
2. The economy is improving because of Trump.
Despite almost all of the positive economic news stemming from the last several months of the Obama administration, Trump tries to take credit for the improving economy. He even recently tried to take credit for jobs that were created before he took office.
3. ‘Millions voted illegally’ for Hillary
Not too long ago, a poll found that 55 percent of Trump supporters believe his daft conspiracy theory that the only reason he lost the popular vote is because “millions voted illegally” for Hillary Clinton. Ignorance is bliss, right?
4. Trump should have the power to overturn judicial rulings.
Utterly clueless when it comes to the U.S. Constitution (except for the Second Amendment), 51 percent of Trump supporters think the Executive Branch should have the power to overrule the Judicial Branch. This came after Trump was overruled in his efforts to impose a Muslim travel ban.
5. Trumpcare is great while Obamacare is awful.
During the presidential campaign, Trump talked constantly about how easy it would be to gut Obamacare and impose a version of his own that would cover everyone. Here are the facts:
- Around 24 million people will lose their health insurance—many of them his most vocal supporters
- Premiums, especially for Americans 50 and older, will increase dramatically.
- States can opt-out of protecting people with pre-existing conditions.
- Coverage will get worse.
- Medicaid will be gutted.
Trumpcare is nothing but a tax cut for the wealthy and a “screw you” to the poor, but his supporters don’t mind being screwed by their hero.
6. Barack Obama was not born in the United States.
Yep. Remember when Trump himself was the “leader” of this “birther movement?” The very thing that catapulted a reality TV host to political fame and fortune. Trump accused President Obama of not being born in America for years, which seems to have resonated with his supporters: 59 percent of Trump supporters didn’t think Obama was born in the United States, while only 23 percent said he was.
7. All the investigations into Trump’s ties to Russia are bogus.
Despite the overwhelming amount of evidence that continues to pile up regarding Trump’s ties to Putin during the 2016 presidential campaign and beyond, his supporters simply don’t believe it. They think it’s all about the “FAKE NEWS” of actually reputable sources like NYT, WaPo, CNN, etc. ganging up on the president because of their liberal agenda. This is possibly the most delusional of them all.
