    Then I suppose we never had the right in the first place. Can't complain about having something taken that you never had (or defended) in the first place.

    To preserve your own sanity, remember that there is NOTHING rational about Democratic reactions. Trying to make sense of their ravings will simply make you crazy! There is no rational thought going on with those people. When they FEEL something, they convert that to TRUTH! It must be true because they feel it.

    People who flip out are best confined to a rubber room and straight jacket. Making sense of their raving is a waste of time.

    No intention of responding or arguing my opinion, and I'm not here to disagree with your beliefs.

    Neither I nor most of you can imagine the way Trump thinks. He's a narcissist, meaning he is incapable of considering other people in his dealings. Only himself. All of the faults mentioned by your wife result from this mentality. What amazed me was finding out that narcissists are not give psychotherapy because it only gives them ways to perfect the illness, not cure it.
    There are too many examples to remember of him refusing to refute racism, being a sexual predator, mocking people with physical or mental handicaps.
    Hope this helps understand the dislike. I find the man repugnant, but when he was elected wished he would go into the history books as the best president ever.

    Remember when Andrew Johnson was impeached? The democrats still do.

    I see the hatred the liberal/progressives feel for Trump stems from the realization that liberal/progressives have the same traits of personality as Trump.
    Democrats are racist, sexual predators, and crooked in their everyday lives. This is also the root cause of their guilt trip over being white.

    The left has always hated anything that goes against their ideals.
    Hated to the point that those ideas, as well as the people must be destroyed by any means necessary.
    The democrat elite were also under the belief that trump was one of them.

    You are clearly delusional and understand NOTHING about Trump at all. Have you ever even listened to him speak? Sounds like you have nothing more than the 30 second edited sound-bites.

    Trump is the most compassionate President in my lifetime, and I've been voting for them since the 70s.

    He cares more about the average American, and those who are less fortunate than any of the Democrat presidents in the last6 decades, and has put programs in place to help people get to WORK, which is what people need - not to get more free handouts that tie them more tightly to the government teat.

    You clearly don't understand who is in the White House, and should get some help for that TDS.

    Individual values and morals in my opinion. I think most people choose politicians who best reflect their personal set of values overall.

    The short answer to the OP is that the hatred for Trump is coming from the Democrats. They are like a bunch of Hoot Owls, the more light you shine on them the less they see. I have to wonder why they even want to live in America as the are so diametrically opposed to the very things that make America great. They hate the constitution and want the government to control everyones actions and limit everyones freedom. Seems to me that they'd all be much happier in Eastern Eruope somewhere....

    I remember a lot of the beautiful people in Hollywood threatened to denounce their US citizenship and move to another country if Trump was elected. Sadly, none of them followed through on their threat. But to them I say, IT'S NEVER TOO LATE.

    Where does the hate come...simple ignorance.

    Prior to him running for the presidency (and really up to the point he won the nomination) he never garnered this type of hate.

    Introduce a liberal/biased media and politicians on both sides who see him as a threat and suddenly he is a racist.

    It has been my experience most liberal friends can’t even tell me why they hate him outside of the fact they have been told to

    Talk to Republicans who hated Clinton and they can come up dozens of reasons.

    One side is informed and able to make a decision. One side is told what to think and parrot it.

    The President is an outsider who can’t be bribed and wants the best for the citizenry. That makes him a threat to most insiders, especially those who are out for themselves.
    Elite insiders concoct waves of ‘narratives’ that are false and attempt to project onto him their crimes and coerce media, social media, and elites to broadcast and repeat the lies.
    Ordinary non-insiders who stand to gain nothing from a repeat of the ‘08-‘16 debacle don’t bother to look beneath the surface of the ‘narratives’, they want to be passively fed these lies on the couch via mainstream media. The complexity of the corruption is beyond their attention span. They want a single villain to hate, hence the apt TDS and ‘orange man bad’ descriptions.

    Fear.
    Discovery of nefarious actions
    (w/ resultant)
    Loss of Power
    All of which could lead to desperate measures or actions.

    They LOST to A Game Show Host for the Love of all that is Holy! Not even a professional politician...

    This is my area of expertise, so I'll comment.

    Trump Haters do not know what Trump may have said or done. They know only the stories they read on their favorite websites. In these stories, Trump has murdered, or promised to murder, millions of people.

    Trump Haters, when asked what action or pronouncement by Trump it is that has them worried, will usually be unable to offer a concrete example. This is because they don't follow Trump, they follow a literary genre, which we may call "trumphatery," for lack of another name.

    Trumphatery consists of essays aimed at producing a state of fear and anxiety, leavened by a glimmer of hope, in the reader. The Trumphatery genre is targeted at a core of "ugly ducklings" who hate their fathers, and by extension hate the archetypal Patriarch. It is also targeted at a periphery that includes nebishes, the indolent, and many other groups.

    TLDR= They don't hate Trump, as they have little or no awareness of what, if anything, Trump has said or done. What they hate is a literary character, the protagonist of a terrifying story that symbolically parallels painful childhood experiences in the target audience.

    Lots of people who actually worked for Trump now hate him. I think they are pretty sure what he said or did to make them feel that way. Maybe some of them deserved what happened to them, who knows?

    Why would you assume that these people are not still working for Trump?

    SOP is that any defector is assumed to be a spy, pending information to the contrary.

    My point being that OP was, I believe, discussing "Aunt Edna and Uncle Fred" Trump haters, not political-operatives who do their "trump hating" in video-production studios.

    The reason that the latter say, to a camera, "I hate Trump," is that this is what it says to say in the script they are reading from.

    Many on the left appears demented. How they act, how they dress, haircuts that make them ugly, piercings, one of their main positions is to kill more babies. They want to take away my speech, my money, my guns. They blame me for something I didnt do.

    I truly think its demonic.

    Actually I was thinking more of the employees of his bankrupt casinos (who unsuccessfully sued him) as well as General Mattis, General Kelly, Secretary Tillerson, ex-lawyer Cohen, Comey, the guy who wrote “The Art of the Deal”. Doubt they are spies exactly. Can’t say they didn’t deserve what they got ( except for the Casino employees).
