Let's be honest . We Dems/Liberals have been having a jolly good time mocking Trump and his supporters . Most of it is done in the spirit of "tough love". Kinda like we would tease a sibling . Deep down it's not really personal . Right ? Unless it is. We tell ourselves that a lot of it they bring on themselves . A lot of it is self-defense . What are you suppose to do when they're telling lies about you? What are you suppose to do when you blame them for being subjected to Trump? What else can you do but stereotype them? What else other than putting them in the category of "those people over there"? It's survival after all .

Unless it's not .

What if it's exactly what Trump wants ? Divide and conquer .

That's what he does best .

And if were not careful that's why he'll win again .

Most are decent enough people, just victims of propaganda.

A few actually are hardcore racists.

It isn't always easy to tell the difference.

We aren't a hive with one mind, gorgeous. Most liberals do in fact suffer from hautiness and snobbery, but nothing more evil.

I think most Americans want the same things for our fellow citizens: a secure, happy life.

I think its dangerous to ever mock anyone over politics. Its just wrong and not at all in spirit of how this country was founded. In the US we supposedly should be fine with Trump, Obama or Vermin Supreme. We have gotten so far away from that over the last couple decades and its made us ugly Americans.

True but thats always true of any body. There always have been racists. But just casting off an entire state, or people is wrong. Just the other day we had one of our vendors saying something nasty about Trump supporters and he was immediately yelled at by a worker who said "hey my mother Trump." He took it very personally and got angry.

If Bush, Kasich or Rubio were sitting in the WH - we would not even be having this discussion.

Because they would have governed like any other normal POTUS would - even if you disagree with their policies.

Trump is so far from normal, it's mind-boggling.

Yes and no. GW took massive hits too and I remember a lot of republicans being called names for having voted for him.. If you recall he was "worse than Hitler" at one point. Meghan McCain even remembered her father being called "the worse misogynist" of all time. So in some ways its similar to crying wolf. Eventually people wont care when he really does show up.
