Are you referring to the juror with the Anti-Trump bias that should have been disqualified as a juror due to prejudice? And, I don't yet know this to be true, but I heard a few mins ago on the radio that she was either a lawyer or a former lawyer. If this is true, she should have known to disclose any bias she had one way or the other, before consenting to be on the jury. Something smells fishy here.

There is no evidence of any “prejudice.” She was subject to the regular voir dire process and Stone’s counsel knew who she was and chose not to try to remove her from the jury. She testified about her political background and that she knew who Stone was, but said that she could be an impartial juror. There isn’t a shred of evidence that she did not act impartially, and Trump going after her is totally unacceptable.

That "cult" represents, at a minimum, more than 48% of registered voters. Calling such a number a cult is no more than a lame attempt to vilify the opinions of almost half the voting public.

Hilary labeled them "The Deplorable's." which dis-incentivized the whole group from giving her any support. Calling 60 million Americans, who at the very least simply cast a negative vote to Hilary's aspirations, members of a "cult" defies all reasonable logic.

But, sans any reasonability, seems that's all you've got.

It's what trolls do when their silly logic evaporates.

The size of the group doesn’t matter. When a group of people have chosen to side with a demagogue no matter what he says or does and to ignore basic factual information and all historic norms, then they are in a cult. Except, unlike most cults, which represent risks to only the cult members, this one is threatening the entire country.

By your definition, anyone that disagrees with you is a member of a cult. It must be nice to sit on that high throne and cast dispersion's on all of us deplorable people.

Anyone who ignores reality and sticks by the lunatic in the White House is in a cult. Agreeing or disagreeing with me has nothing to do with it.

With regards tot he actual thread topic, I for one assume this coming 2021 transition to be much like the 2017 transition. trump with be inaugurated and within 20 minute, the Democrats will promise four more years of impeachment attempts for what they propose President Trump might do.

There will be serious turmoil as the members of the last Coup attempt will find themselves on trial for actual crimes. Great fodder the the Democrats and their leftwing media.

Based on Constantthrowup's definition, people who blindly believe is something fraudulent, Can we refer to them as cult members?
