Ignorant People Are Ignorant Or: "I Just Chose Not To Listen"

Is it delusion or mental deficiency? I guess it really doesn't matter since the result is the same. In both cases people who KNOW something is wrong but want to believe it's not are a threat to themselves and others.

NEW YORK (AP) -- President Donald Trump's loyal backers say they don't know, don't believe or don't care about the explosive revelations that forced the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate possible collusion between Russia and the Republican campaign.[..]

"I tuned it out," said 44-year-old Michele Velardi, a mother of three sons, during a break from her job at a Staten Island hair salon. "I didn't want to be depressed. I don't want to feel that he's not doing what he said, so I just choose to not listen."[..]

"If you're wishing for him to fail, you're basically wishing for the pilot of the plane to crash," [Joseph] Amodeo said. "You just gotta stick by him and hopefully he does things that benefit everyone."[..]

Down the street, Andrew Ottrando, a 56-year-old truck driver, said, "The Comey stuff is a joke." Could anything persuade him to abandon Trump? "If he gases his own people, yeah I would be against him," Ottrando said, saying afterward that he was only joking.

From "I tuned it (meaning the facts) out" to failed analogies, tRumpanzees are desperate to hold on to their delusion. The press is evil, and it's their fault for reporting the facts. Democrats are the ones destroying the nation because they refuse to "just get along". Breaking laws, leaking secrets, making up lies to distract the public (and himself) from the truth, none of those are bad for a president apparently. It would be bad for the rest of us, but not for a president. Or doctor. Or pilot for that matter. Frankly I'd love to see Joe there up in a plane being flown by a successful business man with absolutely NO flight training whatsoever. Sure it's a choice between praying like hell and jumping into the cockpit to try and make sure nothing important gets ignored, but maybe NOT FLYING WITH A DICKHEAD IN CHARGE would have been the better solution.

Bottomline is: there's no point in presenting facts or using logic on tRumpanzees. Their ignorance is both their shield and their security blanket. They savor it, and choose "head in ass" blindness over the terror of admitting that THEY contributed to how bad the situation really is. I guess that's one way of handling things, but adults, ones trusted with the ability to vote, are expected to do better.
