    and now they are rushing to defend a guy who sat by and watched a bunch of college kids get molested and did nothing.

    including smearing the victims and claiming a deep state conspiracy

    Re: Congrats GOP, this is who you now are

    A plurality of Republicans want to give President Trump the authority to close down certain news outlets, according to a new public opinion survey conducted by Ipsos and provided exclusively to The Daily Beast.

    The findings present a sobering picture for the fourth estate, with respondents showing diminished trust in the media and increased support for punitive measures against its members. They also illustrate the extent to which Trump’s anti-press drumbeat has shaped public opinion about the role the media plays in covering his administration.

    All told, 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said that they believed “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” Only 36 percent disagreed with that statement. When asked if Trump should close down specific outlets, including CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, nearly a quarter of Republicans (23 percent) agreed and 49 percent disagreed.

    Republicans were far more likely to take a negative view of the media. Forty-eight percent of them said they believed “the news media is the enemy of the American people” (just 28 percent disagreed).

    To them being American means being GOP. I'm not really sure where to go from here. With the electoral college, these clowns always have a chance to "make America great again" and drag us back to the 1950's.

    Read the comments about how Facebook has “no right” to delete your account. That tells you their understanding of the first amendment.

    Personally, my only hope lies in the fact that “Republicans” (those who identify as such) only amount to 1/3 of the total of those who identify as that, Democrat or independent.
    Still doesn’t alleviate my shame and disgust that any Americans could believe as most of them (“Republicans”) currently do; it can’t be blamed on Christianity. It might can be blamed on that dated, worn out cliche “Communist plot”.

    College educated voters are moving to the cities. Even if these rubes are only 1/3 of the voters, the way the are concentrated they control way more of the puzzle than they should.

    Well there are still some Republicans who disagree with them; some are even leaving the party. So that third is shrinking.
    I think they’re Satanists masquerading as Christians.

    I think there are a bunch of folks masquerading as Christians now days. Not sure how anyone that voted for this clown can go to church on Sunday with a straight face.

    there has been a lot of masquerading for decades beginning with (or at least my knowledge of it beginning with) falwell/moral majority, pat robertson, etc.
