29. Not everybody likes hearing hard real-world truths.

Particularly when you have a World-Class liar and conman breathing in their ear and promising them all the pie-in-the-sky they can eat. And when the conman senses that they'd rather hear his slick talk and blunt blurts and in-yer-face arrogance and vulgarity (shit, the descriptive nouns and adjectives fight each other to get out onto the page!) than face real, challenging, adult-level issues and problems and challenges. They don't want to have to work that hard.

So these folks who didn't really want to work hard or stop blaming somebody else (especially those to whom you're implicitly told YOU are superior and thus more privileged and entitled). They want and, frankly, need to scapegoat. Because the realities of life, inconvenient truths of all kinds, and nothing being close to perfect in the real world, and that you don't always get it exactly the way you want it, and that sometimes you have to make room for somebody else, too, are just too hard to deal with. And unfair. And they'll get all whiny when they complain about "unfair!" Just like their Disgrace in the Oval Office.

I'm just guessing. I'm no professional psychologist or analyst. But I'm really trying to "get" these people. These Deplorables (yeah, Hillary was right about them, their behavior, their stated opinions, and their world view). Because if you voted for this, what does that say about you? And if you STILL stand with him now, and you approve of what he's doing, what does THAT say about you? Sorry. It come downs to that. And THAT is one hell of an inconvenient truth.
