It seems that many people have gone completely crazy.
Consider: Republicans say no one will die from lack of health care. Conservatives profess admiration for Russia’s leader, a murderer and totalitarian. Pregnancy is considered a pre-existing condition, but erectile dysfunction isn’t.
Conservatives want to criminalize possession of marijuana and legitimize sexual assault. Some people want to protect a zygote but allow a baby born with a fatal disorder to die. Young adults in their 20s are considered children. Coal is supposed to represent clean energy while climate change is a hoax.
The truth is whatever a propagandist can make people believe. Russian intervention in the presidential election was normal politics. The most qualified candidate for president in U.S. history won the popular vote by 3 million votes and lost the election. Most new cabinet secretaries are seeking to dismantle and/or destroy the federal agency they control.
