The cult believes that Trump united the country. [View all]

That is why they find it so hard to believe that Biden won the election.

They saw the huge rallies. They saw the adoring audiences. They were part of the circus.
It looked like the entire country was supportive of the arrogant and loud-mouth autocrat. How could he lose to Joe Biden?

But he did. The cult could not believe that so many Americans disagreed with them. And Trump was able to persuade them that they were right. There was no way he could lose to Joe Biden. If he lost to Joe Biden, he would leave the country, he said.

That was how the Big Lie spread. They wanted to believe. They had no evidence, just what they saw at the circus.
