Maybe the man has dementia? I'm willing to throw him a bone.
Dementia is not contagious. How do you explain the rabid loyalty of his followers?

Speaking of child like mentalities.
Have you noticed how many of these Trumpanzees, even on occasions when backed into a corner and pretty much forced to agree the man's action/words were idiotic, will say something along the lines of , "well, it's worth it just to see you liberals heads explode" and then chortle and drool happily? They don't care if something is bad for the entire country, even themselves, just so long as their "enemy" is upset by it.
Another immature characteristic. The inability, or unwillingness, to discern and appreciate nuances, shades of gray. It's either friend or enemy, good or bad, hate or love.

It's really quite strange, IMHO of course.
Thanks from imaginethat and Clara007

I see.

Many subscribe to the saying "Change is good," but that's not so. Change may be good, or not.

When a man neck deep in the establishment cons tens of millions by declaring he's the anti-establishment candidate, and he is elected, the hoped for change was an illusion ... by design.

So you are saying it's like when Democrats promise change for the black community, and simply changed the location of the plantation.

Democrats not only promise change, they follow through. The U.S. Census proves it. The census tracks annual changes in income, poverty, and unemployment. When asked how each of America’s major ethnic groups has fared under Democratic or Republican presidents. The findings are obvious. "When Republicans are in the White House, minorities generally lose ground. But Democratic presidents have presided over steady and substantial improvements for communities of color – and the nation as a whole." Under Democratic Presidents, Minorities Make Economic Gains - And So Do Whites | Scholars Strategy Network

*Under Democratic presidents the black community's incomes grew. Unemployment fell--rather large gains for minorities under Democrats and equally sharp losses under Republicans.

What policies helped the black communities? Johnson's war on poverty. Clinton's expansion of the tax credit. Affirmative action-like it or not. Under President Obama the poverty rate fell yet again. African Americans gained healthcare insurance. Teen pregnancy went down. Life expectancy went up.
Graduation rates are the highest in history for blacks. 1 million more enrolled in college. Pell Grant funding increased. Obama launched "My Brother's Keeper". The council on Women and Girls launched specific tactics to secure better jobs and opportunities for women. Minority owned businesses increased by 38%. Obama made 62 lifetime appointments to the bench--all African American. But most importantly Obama provided a role model to all African American men (and women)---to take responsibility for their families, work ethic, and possibilities to rise to the highest office in the land.

So don't tell us that Democrats have just changed the location of the plantation and stop reading conservative clap-trap. Look at statistics.
AND here's another thing. Democrats ACT like they give a crap. Republicans don't.

The poverty rate under Obama, a Democrat, after $22 trillion dollars since the Great Society, was higher than it was before the Great Society.

In 1950, seventy-eight percent of black families consisted of a husband and wife. That number held steady until the Great Society was enacted. That number dropped to fifty-nine percent after the Great Society.

After the Great Society was enacted, the illegitimacy of blacks increased from twenty-three percent to forty-eight percent from 1964 to 1980.

After the Great Society was enacted, the homicide rate for blacks increased by one-hundred and twenty-two percent, and the number of blacks arrested increased by eight-hundred and sixty-six percent from 1964 to 1970.

The poverty rate was eighteen percent in 1960 and had dropped steadily to under ten percent until the Great Society was fully implemented, and this trajectory was headed to a poverty rate of less than nine percent by 1973, then it increasd in 1968 when all of the Great Society’s programs were implemented.

The poverty rate increased to fifteen percent of the population below the poverty rate by the time Reagan was in office, and Reagan, a Republican, decreased the percentage of the population living under the poverty rate to six percent.
