A lot of the blame lies with hugely popular but horrifically evil conservative commentators, for example Rush Limbaugh.  Some of his quotes:

 

On sexual consent:
"How many of you guys . . . have learned that 'no' means 'yes' if you know how to spot it?” 
On climate change:
"just a bunch of scientists organized around a political proposition."
On feminism:
 "was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society."
On Obama:
"I hope he fails."
On Ebola:
 "People at the highest levels of our government say 'Why, why shouldn't we get it? Why should only those three nations in Africa get it? We're no better than they are.' And they have this attitude, 'Well, if they have it in Africa, by God, we deserve to get it, because they're in Africa because of us and because of slavery.'"
On Sport:
"the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons."
On drugs:
Defended mandatory minimum sentencing for drug offenses- was later investigated for illegally obtaining the prescription drugs oxycodone and hydrocodone and admitted his addiction.
A familiar example for Trump to follow:
Claimed Michael J Fox was shamelessly acting - and mocked him on camera - when Fox was campaigning for Parkinsons sufferers
On tobacco:
"Smokers aren’t killing anybody"

 

 

And it looks like only one of those things has come back to really bite him, probably terminally.

Trump is really a douche. To imagine people thought Obama wearing a tan suit wasn't presidential - Trump does not respect the anthem or flag:

He did it during the State of the Union. I just saw it. Melania did the honours. Lots of cheers and applause. Pelosi sitting in stony silence.

I can only imagine this was done to "own the Libs", and therefore further stoke divisions in their country. How can any sane voter want a leader of their nation being this divisive?

I guess David Duke's will get Trump's nomination for the Wolf Award, in race relations.

I'd expect the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan to continue to be an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump throughout this election also

And the final vote is going on as we speak. Sigh such a depressing day for democracy and the rule of law the world over.

Indeed, but at least one Republican Senator still has his balls.

Actually, democracy is all about who has the most votes wins. If nothing illegal is happening then it is true democracy at work. IMO there are no decent alternatives unless you prefer the Russian or Chinese models. America got what it deserves and this guy will last another 5 years. Our own politicians are just as skilled at delivering fake news as the Americans.

An interesting take. Reading between the votes: 53 Senators say Trump guilty on the facts.

I wonder what the count would've been had the ballot been secret. I suspect we may have seen more than one Republican defection.

And wasn't it just last week when the GOP were all bent out of shape about the whole "Head on a spike" notion if any Republicans voted against Trump?

After seeing Trump crowing on TV about his acquittal by the GOP it's obvious he doesn't know that the only thing people dislike more than a bad loser is a bad winner.
