I have often used the phrase "cult of Trump" as a way to paint a picture of the loyalty that surrounds Trump followers within the GOP.

I've used it almost tongue-in-cheek in the past. But I've begun to think that what we're witnessing really is a cult, not unlike the thousands of other cults that brainwash people into believing things that defy normal thinking.

Last month you wrote an article about Politicians being the “thought police” and this month here you are actually BEING the “thought police”!!! Oh, the irony of it all. SMH

Great Article!! It's unfortunate there are some who keep on believing the lies they're told. I wish people would check other news outlets to see if there is a consensus in each story. That should tell people which news outlets are honest.

Mike, sounds like you got your information from the main stream media again. You are a hardcore democrat that prints whatever they tell you to print. The Democrat party run by Obama and Soros is the cult your are referring to.
