This seems to reflect very low opinion of fellow Americans and religious people. Or maybe just another case of throwing out the word "racism" when there is nothing logical to say.

Unfortunately, responders missed a key point - "that's politics". So when getting upset over President Trump, people have to ask themselves, "Compared to who?". 

 

Also, while Cuomo did make valid points, let's not forget his basic point was how to better "get" President Trump.

I know I've been trying now for quite some time to remind myself of a mindset of "hate the evil they do and not the person".  Trump was a wealthy businessman, out of the whole political group; I believe that many felt we need someone who is not a career politician and who has become a very wealthy business person.  If he used those "tactics" to get to the top of the materialistic world, than certainly he could bring our country and "me" to the penthouse perhaps was the mindset?  I still say....Mr. President, do your divided country people the respect and show us your taxes!

IMHO, it a "morality" thing. If the GOPers admit the truth about Trump, his adminsitration and the rest of the Republcian party, they will have to admit they knowingly support the redistribution of income and wealth from the middle to the top AND condone the most corrupt Government officials ever to slither into their offices.

But if they keep denying, then they're just defending the faith against "fake news". Lets them sleep better, so the rest of us must do the waking up and cleaning out.

Well, for starters, all that they hear is a constant stream of lies from trump. Which is the normal sequence for a authoritative dictator. And they get to the point that there is no differentiation between lies and truth(which is seldom heard). They drank the kool aid, and there is no going back. Lost souls.
