The chickens are coming home to roost. And yet-
I think we all believed when Trump’s horrendous policies started to affect Trump voters, they would start to see the light and the error of their ways.
But their capacity for delusion and rationalization exceeds any known scale it can be measured on.
Here is the story of a landscaping business owner who is at risk of losing his business because he can’t get enough seasonal workers:
Eddie Devine voted for President Donald Trump because he thought he would be good for American business. Now, he says, the Trump administration’s restrictions on seasonal foreign labor may put him out of business.
“I feel like I’ve been tricked by the devil,” said Devine, owner of Harrodsburg-based Devine Creations Landscaping. “I feel so stupid.”
Devine says it has been years since he could find enough dependable, drug-free American workers for his $12-an-hour jobs mowing and tending landscapes for cemeteries, shopping centers and apartment complexes across Central Kentucky.
Well he got one thing right. Yes. Your (sic) stupid. What did you think would happen?
Of course he is not alone
He isn’t alone. Cuts in H-2B visas are hurting small businesses across the country that can’t find Americans willing to do hard, manual labor: Maryland crab processors, Texas shrimp fishermen, and Kentucky landscapers and construction companies.
If you have a taste for crab cakes you might have to do without this summer
"It's not right."
The owner of a Maryland crab processor who voted for Trump is upset over a shortage of seasonal immigrant labor.

Yes, he thinks Trump can “fix pit with his pen”. Sure he could. But this is what you voted for dumbass!! Better still he is blaming the “far right “ in Congress for preventing Trump from doing so. It’s always someone else’s fault. Never Trump’s. And anyway how does Congress stymie the signing of an executive order? Not that you can argue facts with them.
Any rationalization will do. They will not admit their hero is responsible. They are a lost virtually unreachable cause even when their own livelihoods are at stake
