Why are so many republicans...especially trump supporters... bigoted, reality denying, paranoid, conspiracy loving, idiots? When will we, as a society, stop catering to their particular brand of stupidity, stand up to them, and tell them straight to their faces: STOP trying to force your willfull ignorance onto me, my fellow citizens, and into our government! If you want to selfishly ignore facts and twist the truth to fit your bigotries so be it, but you have NO RIGHT to force it on others…

The Gag Rule and the Muslim Ban in particular have secured the undivided support of the party’s grassroots for Trump, so congressional capitulation is not only the only coherent path, it’s the only politically safe one. The GOP Congress will be to Trump what the Reichstag was to Adolf Hitler or Saddam Hussein’s council of representatives was to the Iraqi despot — a rubber stamp.
