In any normal circumstances, the publication of a book like John Bolton would trigger a political earthquake. In a page for the room in which it occurred, he describes a president who shows an astonishing level of ignorance, incompetence and corruption also open in its guidance of foreign bodies. Bolton, a Republican and staunch conservative, he also argued that the impeachment Democratic effort was close. After all, often placed Bolton complaints, Trump his personal political interests above the national interest for the implementation of foreign policy. Yet, here we are, with a sense of deja vu. Is not that the Donald Trump behavior does not matter – in fact, before the 19-Covid pandemic was one of the main reasons why his approval rating in the low 40s, despite a prosperous economy at home and relative peace abroad he was left. The problem is that his followers do despite the fact that they are attached to regularly engage in behaviors that would condemn in no other politician. Gallons and gallons of ink have been spilled, this phenomenon has to explain, and all current theories some merit. Yes, fights against the media and Democrats and GOP primary voters will tell you that long for a “fighter.” Yes it is a transaction element bit ‘of his support. Until he appoint good judges and recognizes its base the political victory they want, he gets a ride on his personal behavior. But on this day, I think that journalists shine an important reality apart – its voters simply do not believe many of the facts on Trump behavior. John Bolton book helps to explain why. The scale of the incompetence Trump, combined with his obsession for personal praise and show of loyalty creates an incentive to well-meaning people to lie publicly about Trump (or silent) to protect their access and, at times, to except the nation of terrible decisions. The cycle goes something like this – those who know how to get close to the president and accurately detect the chaos that describes Bolton. The worst mistakes (Bolton, he argues that a Trump once threatened to leave NATO, our nation the most important military alliance) to stop, you must be “in the room where it happened,” quote Bolton, citing musical Hamilton. But to remain in the room, in adulation must get involved and the strong public Trump defense requires. This flattery and this defense – reinforced by Fox News, talk radio and other conservative organizations – listen and believe the President’s followers. Finally, defenses will come from people who are in the room, the statements on the disk (as opposed to anonymous leaks in the media are often based on a maximum), and are unique. Republican officials to build their Trumpist prison. To maintain the effect, they need to flatter. When cajole, retain Trumps bases. The more flattery, the Trump tighter grip on the GOP. If and when you choose to speak the Trump tight grip on the GOP, the higher the cost. Better to just ride this thing then, they believe. You saw how the base turned General James Mattis? Have you seen the new-found hatred John Bolton? The result is a kind of parallel universe of knowledge. Trump fans will say: “Yes, yes, we know it’s not perfect. Concerns about his character are burned ‘”. But in reality they do not know the facts on millions Trump behavior and character. The flattery relentless, unyielding defense and distrust of the media (in any error climax, and relentlessly reinforced towing Trump) produce a denial of reflective self-established facts. Earlier this year, I witnessed a perfect example of this phenomenon in action. I had the privilege of discussing Eric Metaxas, a radio host, author of best-seller and one of the sharpest difensori Trump Protestants. During the debate, I have several references to Trump behavior. I noted that his country “has tried to help solicitation from a geopolitical rival”. This is a fact. Among other things, the son, son-in law and campaign chair met in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer named Natalya Veselnitskaya with the intent to obtain documents that “accuse Hillary” were part of “Russia and its support government for Men. trump card. “I also noticed that he” extort vulnerable un’alleati tried to “a promise” to undertake an investigation of a political rival and a study of an open-crazy conspiracy theory. “There are overwhelming evidence that he was doing just that, and the evidence begins to read from July 25, 2019 telephone conversation between President Trump and President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky with the Memorandum. I also said that President Trump America out week after week after week about the threat of the outside ring road. the evidence is. clearly here the examples are countless, on January 22, Trump said. ‘And’ a person is from China, and we have it under control, it will be just fine. ” In February, he promised, the coronavirus in the USA very much under control. ‘As the June 22 more than 2.3 million Americans have been diagnosed with Covid-19 and more than 122,000 have died. and how did King Metaxas act on facts about Trump behavior? “If I believed what David said,” he replied, “I would be with him on this [opposite Trump].” The uncompromising defense Trump, the unceasing praise and relentless attacks on the media had been working their black magic. The facts are not facts. Could Metaxas has, indeed, I think, informed false information? After all, he is one of the leading evangelical public figure, a person who is engaged in the daily political debate. While I can not look into his heart, I know from personal experience that the media Trump defense complex functions that the truth is that many people who believe a lie. John Bolton is no longer “the room where it happens.” Other Americans have a duty to do their best to keep that prevent our alliances the president from doing favors for dictators, teaching basic facts about the history and geography and pay his attention during his safety briefing. Some of these Americans still preserve their access to the president vigorously defended Trump and start bronze attacks against Bolton. Bolton book should cause an earthquake. And it will not. It is not because the Republicans, the hard work of Trump and his worst impulses temperament rocked immunized largely their constituents against the truth.
