Before covid, theres a couple friends I would visit who had friends who are right wingers.

I would get little clues here and there about some of their views. They would spout anti Obama or pro Koch bros rhetoric. Conspiracy theories like fake moon landing beliefs and chem trails. Oh and the fires in California were not a big deal, more like exciting. It was all kinda disturbing but they seemed harmless, and fringe minority. But I feel like thatís all changed now. They are not harmless, as individuals, but they are part of a dangerous movement. Iím posting this because I would like some feedback as to what to do. I donít have a lot of friends, or family. I feel like Iím losing so many people to trumpism. Do I not visit my friends who associate with them? Do I even bring this up with my friends who associate with them? Am I being too judgmental? Or do I keep this too myself and just continue these relationships and ignore the nutty parts of these people?
My friends donít seem to have any problems with these loonies, and I sometimes wonder what my friends true colors are. Iíve learned to not discuss politics with family members. They mostly vote third party.

Don't impeach Trump: Treat Him Like a Civil War Traitor

So maybe trump can't "shoot someone on 5th Avenue"...

We will soon see. IMHO he is responsible for these 4 deaths (edit 5 deaths now), from the Capitol building yesterday.
Not gonna count all the covid deaths under his watch and disastrous chaotic mis management. Although mismanagement is not the word at all, more like sabotage.
Even though I feel a fool for entertaining this thought but maybe his Teflon coating is finally wearing down?
