Apparently, it is just now that devout Trumpsters are beginning to realize that most of us believe their enthusiasm for The Donald says something about their own character, and they’re going to be held accountable for it.
"Pres. Trump is a racist and if you don't think he is a racist then there is no such thing as a racist," says CNN contributor @WajahatAli. "…I think it's pretty clear after today's tweets… he's a white nationalist and I would say he's a demagogue." https://t.co/O9WOuO2EOR pic.twitter.com/1rCg5McxD7

It was well-known before the 2016 election that Trump is a philanderer, that he is a racist, that he is dishonest in business, that he has gone bankrupt six times, that he knows next to nothing of his own country’s history and ideals, that he channels Joseph Goebbels and routinely tells Big Lies, that he has nothing on offer but validation of a long train of inchoate resentments — and if somebody has no problem with those things, it goes to that person’s character. Always, the truth about people is what they do, not what they say, because behavior is the manifestation of character; those things don’t occupy separate partitions.
