18. People who hold indefensible positions often resort to personal attacks...

when they realize they are wrong, but are not willing to admit it.
It's meant to intimidate their opponent into backing down and/or shutting up.
It's a fear tactic.

Trump is very good at this, as are those people who are his most loyal supporters.
Using logic and reason is hard work. Spewing out anger and hatred, and shouting down your opponent is much easier and works pretty well.

They're counting on you not being willing to fight back...sort of like verbal rape.

This is Trump world.
