The Cult of Trump

The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that many of Trump's followers exhibit cultish tendencies and Trump himself seems like a cult leader. I thought it would be interesting to see what the experts say and see if there are instances that exemplify this behavior. This is what I found. It's a long read, but well worth it.

2. Been watching on A&E about the scientologists

The similarities between thump and his supporters are eerily similar to Scientology brainwashing. Saying the same phases and making up bs talking points and so called "facts" that were pulled out his a$$. Yes it is a cult and there was a brainwashing,

6. It's totally a cult

The behavior of his supporters towards those of us "non-delivers" is atrocious! I couldn't figure it out until it occurred to me that they are acting just like a cult. Then I look into it and there you have it! It's definitely cult like behavior! Scientology is just as bad when it comes to this cult like behavior. This is not normal for our political system and I hope that it doesn't become so...

4. Forget the fucking experts!!

This is what we're up against.

Right Wing Watch
And they are all mad as hatters! All of them.

This is not about Drumpf; it's about those who would use him. There is not a sane one amongst any of them. And they now have power.

We need to get started. It's time to set aside 2016 postmortems.

We have a lot of work to do.

9. It's truly frightening

And yes, we definitely have a lot of work to do. I didn't know about Right Wing Watch - thanks for including that in the post! Whether they want to or not, everyone is going to have to get involved if we are going to get through this with any semblance of our country remaining...
