Sociologist Tony Campolo has been known, when speaking to Christian audiences, to begin by saying something like this:
I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact I just said “shit” than you are that 30,000 kids died last night.

It’s no secret that when it comes to facts, supporters of Donald Trump aren’t overly fond of them. That’s how he became so successful within the GOP — pandering to people who don’t care about the truth. They are people who, as Ted Koppel perfectly described to Sean Hannity recently, believe that ideology and what they want to be real matters more than actual facts.
That being said, there’s still a difference between believing in things that aren’t completely accurate that can be slightly subjective, and believing that outright, easily debunked lies are actually true. When it comes to believing in the latter, Trump supporters take the cake.
While most of us are probably aware of this information, I thought I’d put together this list to serve as, what I think, will be a great tool to use in proving how delusional most of the people who support Trump actually are.
1. They think the economy has improved because of him: Despite the fact he hasn’t signed a single piece of major economic legislation, and the current economic data we’re seeing is clearly a continuation of the success we saw for the vast majority of Obama’s time in office, the Republican view on the economy has doubled since he took office. The exact same economy only 31 percent of Republicans felt positive about at the end of Obama’s presidency, is now viewed as heading in the right direction by 61 percent of Republicans.

From CNN Interview:
Erin Burnett (CNN Host): “What do you say to Tiffany? I mean, she’s a Republican, but she wouldn’t be alive, she wouldn’t be here without that Medicaid expansion in Obamacare.”
Congressman Ron Desantis (R-FL): “Well, if you remember when Obamacare was enacted, there were millions of people who had their health care canceled. And so there are stories of people who had certain needs, cancer or whatnot, who got pushed into policies that they didn’t want, and then they didn’t have the same coverage that they had because of the broken promise. So I think this law has really created a lot of different aspects. I would say though, and people who supported Obamacare used to make this point a lot before it passed, there really is no lack of health care. If people really need it, they show up to the emergency room, they do get care, it just gets passed on to other folks.”
