Because only human beings are capable of such non-logic...
I met a woman today who told me she had been watching Trump on television this morning. She's a white, slightly older woman who was accompanied by an older, Asian man. "So what did you think?" I asked her, planning to share a few giggles of the absurdity of a Trump presidency.
'He's wonderful," she gushed. "He's going to make a great president."
I swallowed the gathering bile. I turned to the gentleman.
"Do you think Donald Trump is sexist?" I asked.
"Do you believe he's racist?" I asked.
"Then why do you like him?"
"Because he's going to make America great again."
My mind reeled.
"So you'll be voting for Donald for president. That's fascinating."
"Oh no," she demurred. "I'm not a registered voter."
"But.... if you think he'll make a great president, shouldn't you get out and vote for him?"
"No, I don't have time to get registered. I have too much to do. And he doesn't need my vote anyway."
Dear God, hear my prayer: let all Donald Trump supporters be like this woman. Unregistered and remaining so, happy in her busy life with no time to cast a pesky vote.
I'm going to bed and don't plan to reemerge till 2017.
