    If you arenít prepared to insist that Trump is the worst thing ever, down to the reductio ad hitlerum level, you are construed as a defending him.

    Thatís the rule.

    Yeah, but it's a silly rule.

    Admitting that you belong to the party that is currently, despite his loss, led be a seditious turd is difficult. Especially if one voted for him. Denial is much easier.

    trump is/was a dictator-wanna-be as evidenced by Jan 6th. If you deny that, you are defending him. He tried to remain in power even though he lost (as would a dictator).

    If a democrat acted the same way I wouldn’t be in denial like the republicans. Yes he was trying to be a dictator.

    I miss PDQXYZ, a poster from long ago here. But I will paraphrase his words about G!w Bush which I thought were funny in their simple truth:


    Trump is no longer the president. Try to get over it.

    Actually, I think Trump is the one that has to get over it.

    Not when people downplay what he did and saying this did not change the course of history. I’m sure I will get over it but it looks like trump may get his comeuppance. One can only hope.

    In the face of all the evidence--and 60 court cases--that the last election was one of the smoothest and fairest in history, many Republican lawmakers are refusing to admit that Joe Biden is the duly-elected president. It's clear that they--and Trump--haven't "gotten over it." So their credulous followers lumber on, believing hare-brained rumors and Q-droppings, much to the country's detriment.
