having to spin around in circles to defend the president of the united states
They see the ugly side of Trump in themselves and fear confronting it. Take away economic conservatism, there's very little to justify the racism, sexism, lying, corruption, concentration camps, etc.
Rather than taking a moment to think "Maybe that was awful, maybe I'm kinda awful and need to re-evaluate how I see the world," they prefer to dig in and accuse everyone else of misunderstanding them.
Just STFU with the concentration camps. This why you leftists lose so goddamn much and are such a pain in the ass. You make irrational comparisons to stoke fear. Stick to the facts.
I'm in no way defending Trump or his policies. These people aren't not American citizens being rounded up, trucked to facilities where they will not bed fed or cared for; where they'll work in factories or farms as well as be systematically murdered. That is the a concentration camp.
These people are in detention facilities b/c they illegally entered. I don't like the conditions as much as you and I sure as shit don't approve of separating children from families. But the analogy to a concentration camp is intellectually dishonest and you're only using it to further attempt to compare Trump to Hitler. Which again, is intellectually false and dishonest. It's fear mongering. Stick the facts.
Unless I missed it, I didn't see live video from AOCs and the other Dems visits that prove everything they say. I'm just supposed to take their word for it? For the record, the Republicans would have to have a live stream as well for me to believe.
Better yet, have the Democrats go in with Fox News Live and the Republicans with CNN Live and then MAYBE I'll believe what is really happening. So far I have to take the word of BIASED politicians and BIASED media personalities and reporters.
Seems to me the conditions are more like a slum, not a death camp. But, that doesn't help convince the idiots drones of the Democratic Party understand how bad the conditions are.
