All joking aside, I wonder if Ivanka is all right. For her father to sexualize her like that, commit emotional incest, and probably single her out as the favored child, did it do any damage? In normal families, there would be problems. I just wonder if she has mental health issues or boundary issues or attachment issues. Having a narcissistic parent most often ruins you.
None of those kids are alright for the reasons you list, plus learning that sociopathic behaviour is normal. They're all monsters from how they were raised. In the abstract, I can find pity and sympathy for them because of that, but they're active agents of misery to millions of others and should be shut away forever.
They're definitely mirroring his behavior. In that sense, fuck 'em.

Yet evangelicals adore him. Which demonstrates the moral abyss within that movement.
That right there is a head-scratcher.

Or it makes perfect sense. They want a christo-fascist theocracy. And trump helped them with their goals. The Trump Supreme Court is gonna be doing lots of horrible, illiberal shit for the next few decades. Of course evangelicals love him.

Hello,

The head-scratcher for me is who (besides Trump) would purchase a statue of parrots screwing?

And, to be fair, the Bible and the Christian tradition is pretty silent on expectations for the conduct of adherents. Like, really, who knows what's proper and improper behaviour if you're a Christian, you know?

I guess I was thinking of this from a moral pov, but in order to achieve their christo-fascist theocracy then it's not a head-scratcher at all.

I hadn't really noticed that until you mentioned it, good catch.

Thank goodness they're protecting Americans from all that nanny government interference. Now, about everything being on fire and dying, c'mon, government, do something about that!

Not that i know how any of it works really, but can't help thinking they might as well disband congress and divide the money saved between the oil and gas companies and let them get on with the job of fracking us all to hell.
