But what about "what aboutism"? [View all]

Trump supporters are now in their "what about" defense.

No matter how serious the charges, they respond with "What about Obama", or "What about Hillary?"

If you mention the children being locked up on the border, and some dying in America's custody, they say "What about Obama and the 'Fast and Furious'?

If you mention the education plan of Democratic candidates to pay off student debt, they say, "We don't need a college education....how about a new car?"

If you mention the murder of Khasoggi by the Saudi assassins, they say, "What about Hillary and Benghazi?"

The "what aboutism" is all about covering for Donald Trump, no matter what charges might come up.

Yeah, what about all those babies dying with abortions?

These people make it impossible to compromise on anything. You have two choices. Fight or surrender.
