How is it so many people fail to see how much of a prick Trump is ?

I would rather come across as a prick than a wuss like that last guy in office. Did you ever watch him deplane Air Force One? He looked like a chipmunk.
Other countries took advantage of us because they knew they could. That has come to a screeching halt.

Maybe, but personality wasn't what got him elected and now it's not what will bet him re-elected. It's performance.
What Trump has done in the last 3 years is turn the economy around into the strongest economy the country has seen in the last 15 years at least. He has taken on tough problems other presidents kicked the can down the road on for decades. This includes illegal immigration. It includes trade issues with China as well as issues with them on American intellectual property. He just pushed through a major new US, Canadian, Mexican trade partnership (USMCA), eliminating a number of problems with the old one (NAFTA). He has taken a very visible stance with the pro-life movement.

Republicans have been 'trained' to believe the country belongs to them, the founding fathers agreed with them, that they should be in charge. And that 'liberals' have stolen their country and they need to take it back. Listen to Christians (some Christians), gun nuts, racists, xenophobes, homophobes, etc. etc. and they all sound like that. 'We gotta take our country back from the libs and commies and socialists!'
So every Republican candidate promises 'We're gonna do what WE want. You're gonna get what YOU want, and F*CK all those other people!' And the promise that such minor considerations as the Constitution and the rule of law won't get in their way. Getting what you want is what's important. The Bill of Rights, the federal system of government, 'a government of laws, not of men', are not important. It's all about getting what you want.
You can really see this with the Christian Right. (SOME) Christians have been convinced that their religion ought to entitle them to special privileges and rights above the rest of us. That our founding fathers were fundamentalists, just like them, and they didn't want a 'wall of separation' between church and state. They've even been convinced that God wants what they want, so in cheating and lying and being racist and xenophobic, in screwing the poor and keeping women barefoot and pregnant, they're doing GOD'S WORK!
Trump looked to them like just the guy to do it! A guy who was above the law, who's lied and cheated his entire career and never got into too much trouble. The worse Trump is, the better they like him!

They see it. They think it's an asset.
Trump is about the absolute panic of ageing conservatives at the reality they are losing their iron grip on the culture.
They are no longer being particularly listened to, their cornfed patriarchs are being met with shrugs and they are absolutely panicking.
the world MUST be about them and their bulliefs FOREVER!!!! IT MUST!!!!!!
They view tyranny as a small price to pay for keeping themselves in a position of supremacy as a group.

But they're unable to see the severity of his influence. Especially, when they feel more so safer with him than any other candidate.

I think for some people it's like not hearing your own accent. To you, that accent just seems normal. That must be how it is with pricks.

They see but some just chose to ignore.
