The Trump Cult is in full swing today, as Trump announces his candidacy for 2024.
Amazing... seeing this dude up on the podium with the crass dismissal of his role in several criminal acts that are currently being investigated.
But predictably enough, his minions were there... cheering his every word.
I found this on the Internet:
"Characteristics Associated With Cults"
Some of its close similarities to the Trump Cult:
The group displays an excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader, and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.
The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s), and its members (e.g., the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar—or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).
The group has a polarized, us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.
The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders, or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).
The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (e.g., lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).
(ie: rioting at the Capitol... pushing the stolen election lie... etc)
Here's an opinion piece on Trump's Cult.

Let it not be said we're not a cross-section of society... as we have our very own forum Trump Cultist.
