Is Somebody Able To Explain To Me How Trump Ever Won The Presidency?

So, I watched a short BBC program last night and apparently more women have come forward to make allegations of sexual assault in the run up to the 2020 election. According to the BBC the total is now 26.

26.

I understand he can be a charismatic orator, but 26 different women?? That puts him in the same league as a Bill Cosby or a Harvey Weinstein. But he had tons of women who voted for him!!! How is that even possible? Do they think all 26 of these women are lying?

I don't know if you are aware, but there was a case a while ago of a police officer who was accused of sexually assaulting various women he stopped, and he was essentially convicted on the strength of the number of accusers. There was a lone piece of DNA evidence, but even the experts conceded that could have been from a secondary transfer, so it was essentially the number of accusers which saw him convicted. And I can promise you, it was less than 26!!!!

What were/are people thinking voting for a man who does this kind of thing to women?

If you think mob accusation rule makes sense, you are a level of stupid new to the planet.

I didn't convict him mate. It was a jury. Speaking of stupid, how about you go away and learn I'm not the guy who decides who gets convicted in the United States.

Also, while you are here spewing hate as usual, perhaps you'd like to show us your evidence of a conspiracy involving twenty six different women, who all accused Trump of sexual assault. It will be interesting to see this clear cut evidence you seem to have that twenty six different people are lying.

Ah yes. I wasn't sure until reading your other comments whether you are Bronto or Fact Machine. Hi Bronto.

Say, while we are on the subject of stupid, are you still sticking by your claim that Donald Trump is going to win the 2020 election?

😆

The explanation for why women voted for Trump even though 26 women were accusing him of assault has to do with compartmentalization.

In psychology: Compartmentalization is a subconscious psychological defense mechanism used to avoid cognitive dissonance, or the mental discomfort and anxiety caused by a person's having conflicting values, cognitions, emotions, beliefs, etc. within themselves.

The women just rationalized that their vote was for who they thought would make a better president. They rationalized that their vote had nothing to do with with whether or not Trump assaulted 26 women. In other words, the same women who voted for Trump could have found him guilty in a court of law for assaulting 26 women and they may not be consciously aware that their actions are contradictory. Furthermore, pointing out their contradictory behavior may only make them dig in their heels, stick to their guns and argue that there's no contradiction.

As far as how did Trump ever win... He won the same way Biden won. In both cases there was a mechanism in place that vilified the administration in power ;)

That's some genuinely wild circular reasoning there Joe. They "compartmentalized" that they were voting for a serial sexual predator because being a serial sexual predator makes you a better president? I'm not sure that's true bro, but thanks.

I don't think you understood the explanation but that's OK ;)

Well, they'd have to be a particularly special type of stupid not to be aware that empowering a serial sexual predator with the highest authority in the land is probably not a good idea.

Then again, this is America, so maybe you're right.
