Trump supporters aren't immoral or even amoral, they do have moral values

It's just that their moral values consist of...

* A heterosexual sex offender is still 'better' than a law abiding GLBTQ person.

* GLBTQ people adopting children is a "social experiment" but children aging out of foster care is... we don't know... maybe something bad, but not THAT bad

* Immigrants and Muslims need to "assimilate" but people who blame everyone else for bad things in their lives, attack other people, don't trust civic institutions, and more are just "ignored Americans".

* "Good national security" means "Sure there is a mass shooter, but hey, the mass shooter is a white guy, so... win".

* The lowest white man is still superior to any woman and/or person of color.

* We are a Christian nation and that apparently means Franklin Graham and Pat Robertson need more money and power.

* Don't remind people that conservatives who are now enthralled by Russia used to call it "Gog and Magog"

* Reminding people that the same Evangelicals who supported the Iraq War that started in 2003 because they thought it would usher in the "end times" now support Trump is just you being in the tank for liberalism.

* Socialism is bad. And things that have been labeled as "socialism" over the years included the policies of Barack Obama, surviving a school shooting, and not acting like Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. Don't be a socialist, OK?

* When someone says "All Lives Matter", don't point to a group of refugees who need help. Don't. Just don't.

Hope that helps.
