Trump is blasting the jury’s verdict as the product of a “rigged” trial and a “corrupt” judge, which is par for the course with him.

The reason Trump was convicted of 34 felonies after a very short jury deliberation is because the evidence was overwhelming that he was guilty of exactly what the state of New York charged him with doing, which was to buy the silence of a porn star with who he had a few minutes of semi-consensual sex, via a fraud through his lawyer, intended to cover up the transaction for the purposes of violating federal election laws, in order to get elected president.

Which is an incredibly serious political crime when you think about it, which of course is something no one who wants to remain a Republican can do.

What Donald Trump requires of his supporters, and most especially of his supporters in the Republican political establishment, is that they live a lie. That lie is to claim that Trump is something other than what he so obviously is, which is the most corrupt and most unworthy of office major politician in the history of this country.

If conservatives were to face up to what Trump is, and to what his takeover of the Republican party signifies, they would have to also face up to the fact that their entire ideology — indeed their very sense of self — is nothing but a gigantic lie. Naturally they aren’t going to do that until circumstances force them to do so.

So until then, they will go on lying to themselves about what they, their party, and their country, has become.
