You guys are certainly making sure the "Teflon Don" reputation holds true.
One of the major dangers that was identified when he was elected was that norms and values would be irrevocably altered, and we're seeing evidence of that here. That there are Dem supporters that want to look the other way and vote Democrat in 2020 and hope for the best just like they do every time for every election shows just how far the lines for norms and values have moved.
There isn't a previous president who wouldn't have had huge consequences, either from the public or their own political party if they had behaved as this guy is behaving. But, as Smoove likes to point out, this is a president who is on record as paying off a porn star to keep quiet about plowing her while his wife was pregnant and the public just shrugs. Hell, it's not even the most egregious thing he's done on a personal level, let alone as president impacting the fate of the nation.
You think drumpf is bad? The next drumpf will be worse, except he won't be a moron. His self enriching and personal whims will be far better hidden and covered by "sound policy". Hell, we might see it in 2020 from a Dem, because who cares, there's always next election to fix the problem.
So yeah, norms and values have been altered just as they were predicted to be, and this is what you're left with. Ignoring and hoping.
