This is how you absolve yourself of how the party you defend actually functions.

I absolved myself of nothing. You’re reading into my words with partisan bias.

You don’t know who this person is, have no idea what she has been saying, yet feel confident speaking about what happened to her.

I don’t feel confident AT ALL about speaking about what happened to her, which is why I used the term “my understanding is”. Again, check your bias. My understanding is that she took a libertarian view on abortion, and that that was unacceptable to the social conservatives and her employer. Is there more?

Can you express what Trump’s core priorities are?

You can’t, yet you’re commenting on politics? :-)

Trump’s core support comes from the working class that has been displaced by globalization, automation, and immigration. Hence, jobs, since the jobs created during the Obama tenure were of lower quality than the ones that have shifted or been automated away, created by reducing the globalistic incentives for offshoring such as lowering our high corporate tax rates, reducing regulatory burdens. and better control over illegal immigration. He has emphasized infrastructure, like Mr. Obama rightly did, but unlike Mr. Obama, wishes to offset the massive cost of this (which was unacceptable to conservatives) by repatriating profits held offshore by our corporations. He wishes to improve on the US health care situation and improve our global military posture. (I’m not one that thinks the latter issue is necessary.) Further, he emphasized reducing the government bureaucracy and limiting the strength of corporate and special interest lobbyists on government.

Hope that helps.
