I said this after the Montana special election, but it bears repeating. Republicans don’t support people in spite of crimes. They support them in part because of their criminality. They supported Trump more after grab them by the pussy. They rallied around Kavanaugh because there were multiple sexual assaults.
There is a criminal class in America. We let them get away with sexual assault, with punching reporters, with financial crimes. Even many people who wouldn’t get away with those things, who in many cases are its victims, still support letting a criminal class exist. Just as many poor people consider themselves temporarily embarrassed millionaires, so to do people complaining about lying bitches want their own chance to rape women without consequences.
