A line from a famous movie goes like this: "I pity the fool."

I pity the fool when they finally realize they have been duped by the biggest con man, a corrupt, lying, unintelligent (remember when he suggested bleach to cure COVID) cheating want-to-be-king former president of the United States.

Some will never wake up because they live their lives like he does, so they admire him. I will say it again: "I pity the fool."
