The Lesser of Two Evils?

Last night, my wife pointed out how odd it was that all of you folks that weren’t voting “for Trump” but “against Hillary” are awfully supportive of Trump’s attempts to lie about the Russian involvement in the election. You were disgusted by so much of what he said and did (I know because you said it in explaining your vote for this bigoted asshat) but were forced to vote for him because you just couldn’t bring yourself to vote for Clinton.
Forced
I understand that. Sometimes you really don’t have a choice. Either circumstances or people or whatever keep you from doing what is right. But I’m not quite sure why you support his pick of a White Supremacist for Senior Adviser OR support Russia’s interference in our election OR his continual cyberbullying OR his threats to NATO if you only voted for him as “the lesser of two evils”.
 
Actually, I’m kidding. I know why you voted for him and lied about your motivation. For the same reason that you rail against being called “racist” or “sexist” or “homophobic” or “xenophobic” just because you are. You can’t bring yourself to face the truth you know in your heart. The truth about what type of human being you are. You just can’t admit it and so you lie to yourself and to everyone else. 
Been there, done that
 
It’s wrong when I do it too. The only difference between you and I is that I’ve gotten past the need to lie about it. Isn’t it time that you did too?
