Harrassment." The smoke billows out every week but they can't see fire. Law enforcement entities charge people because they have evidence. They convict people because they have proof. Not to Trumpers though. It's all just "made up." Bannon defrauds them for MILLIONS of dollars right in front of their faces but they see no crime at all. When he first started that "wall fund" thing I remember thinking "How can Steve Bannon, just a regular citizen even get those funds DIRECTED to something as governmental as building a border wall? Trumpers never even asked themselves that question. Now he's going to criminal trial over it and they STILL don't make any connection to a crime that was apparent from the beginning right up to the moment we found out he was sailing around the world on a brand new YACHT! The willful, dedicated ignorance used to be funny but now it's just terrifying. It's a fanatical religion. Part of the answer to your question is conformation bias. They want to believe the side they are on is the right side, so they believe anything that will allow them to do it. The other part is criminally stupid people being taken advantage of by greedy people. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
