Fact is, you are rationalizing. It's a double-standard and you know it. You just don't want to accept it.
But then you have a shallow, binary outlook on politics, so this is to be expected. Ditto for that slob nibbling at my ankles.

Every post you write proves my point - you don't know what a double standard is.
Repub opposition to obama was not deserved. It was immediate, passionate, angry, and racist.
Dem opposition to trump was EARNED. He had already proven himself to be a liar, con man, sexual predator, egomaniac, and racist.
For a double standard to exist, trump and obama would have to have been relatively equally horrible.
If dems had supported a dem who was a liar, con man, sexual predator, egomaniac, and racist, yet they opposed trump for being a liar, con man, sexual predator, egomaniac, and racist, THEN you'd have a double standard.
Lets see if I can make this simpler for you since you're having such a hard time:
One careless driver backs into your car by accident in a parking lot.
Another careless driver runs over your child driving 80mph down your residential street.
Should you react equally to each of these accidents to avoid having a DOUBLE STANDARD? Or do different situations justify different reactions?
