The biggest news of our time: the normalization of insanity

The biggest news these days is NOT the so-called President's love affair with all things Putin or authoritarianism. It's not health care and the fact that the CBO believes that 32million Americans would lose coverage if Obamacare were repealed! It's not North Korean or Syria or Iran.

None of that compares with this: Public Policy Polling found the following: "Trump's right about one thing though - he could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and not lose most of his support.  45% say they would still approve of him even if he shot someone to 29% who say they would disapprove, and 26% who aren't sure one way or the other." That's 71% who would still support him or MIGHT support him even if he were a murderer vs. only 29% who would not!!!!

Also they found "only 45% of Trump voters believe Donald Trump Jr. had a meeting with Russians about information that might be harmful to Hillary Clinton... even though Trump Jr. admitted it.  32% say the meeting didn't happen and 24% say they're not sure."

They support the Trump family, while at the same time they do not believe what they say! Also, murder by a Trump is OK with them. Just as with Duterte of the Philippines.

This insanity is the biggest news of our time; widespread insanity that, in reality, has always been there, bubbling just under the surface of seemingly normal people. It's as if faith and belief have completely replaced reason and evidence in people's lives even outside of religious belief. It is now religion, faith and ideology ALL THE TIME WITH EVERYTHING. Remember this; 71% of the so-called President's supporters either have no problem with him murdering others, or are not sure they have a problem with this. This is not fake news - this is from the so-called President's own lips.

From his own lips:
