If Donald tweeted that he believes the Earth is flat, I bet a great deal of his followers will adopt that conspiracy too. Scary and sad.

It’s not cancel culture and I’m not being partisan. I honestly do believe there is a percentage of his base that blindly believes in any and every word he says. Dumb?? I never said they were dumb. I do think there is a cult-like element at play, hence the OP.

Agree about the cult like element. Cult leaders have a way of reading people and tapping into something that is missing / need /want. He meets a need for Loyalist Trumpers many of whom may have felt left behind or not heard (not necessarily ALL Republicans, or fairweather Republicans). He will always exists for those die hard Trumpers. For most Republicans and fairweather Republicans (e.g., Lindsey Graham) once he's out of office they won't be as quick to back anything he has to say.

What's sad is that the left believe the right is that dumb. You can't have a proper debate is you can't respect your opponent's right to hold their views. But I guess the left doesn't listen to anyone not a part of their party. Typical cancel culture.

All of my friends and seems like everyone around is looking for a job change as I see on a average, everyone is getting close to 100% hike in new company, is this just a bubble, because hiring and job is wfh, or this trend continue even next year once the physical offices open up?
