Why are conservatives such terrible judges of character?

On one side we have Trump who cheated on every wife he's had. He was ordered to pay a $2M fine for taking money from his veteran's charity for personal use. He was ordered to pay a $25M settlement to settle a FRAUD lawsuit over his FAKE university.

On the other side we have Lt. Col. Vindman, a decorated war veteran with a lifetime of military service, a Purple Heart, and a "Top 1%" rating from his commanding officer.

Yet conservatives believe Trump is telling the truth and Vindman is lying. Why are rightists such terrible judges of character?

    It has nothing to do with their character judgement. THEY JUST DON'T CARE.

    Trump goes backstage at a beauty pageant and ogles nude teenaged girls? That's fine.

    Trump brags about grabbing women by their genitals? Nothing to see here, folks!

    Trump has adulterous sex with a porn star? That just proves how manly he is.

    Trump accepts emoluments? That just shows what a smart businessman he is.

    Trump sucks up to murderous dictators? He's keeping them in line.

    Nothing he does matters to them as long as he props up their miserable view of what America should be, and as long as he continues his racist policies.

    He violates 3 major biblical character flaws in the bible........... He has an unbridled tongue (Proverbs 21:23.

    He is extremely arrogant, Arrogance is included on the same list as slander, theft, and murder, which shows the gravity that God places on it. The Bible promises that arrogant people will be punished: "Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished" (Proverbs 16:5; see also Isaiah 13:11).

    and finally a manipulative and divisive personality

    Oh, yeah. The democrat's appointment of Schiff as Chair of the House Intelligence Committee shows how much they care about character. And what do you say about Michael Flynn,who military record is far more distinguished than Vindman's?

    Trump is a huge bully and fraud, no doubt about that. But looking on the other side, you have Hillary, Nancy, Joe, Maxine and many others who are also pretty despicable people. The voting population (on both sides) that does not vote these people out of office are the apparent most terrible judges of character.

    Hillary - It was a spontaneous attack because of a YouTube video - Clinton. Barack - If you like your Dr, you can keep your dr. - Obama.  Are you really sure you want to go down this road?

    Vindman is a self-important Democrat shill. he testified he told Ukraninan President Zelensky to "beware of the Russians." I think Zelensky already knew, considering Russia had annexed 1/3 of the country. which they were able to do thanks to Obama lying to the previous Ukrainian  president that America would protect them if they gave up their weapons. they believed Obama and had nothing to fight with when Russia came. Trump however gave the Ukraine javelin missiles.

    Denial is a strong defense mechanism; filtering out all that they don't want to see and hear.

    being a veteran doesn't mean you are a good person, if you think otherwise then you are a horrible judge of character.
