The roofing man was never sincere about anything. He is a troll, plain and simple.

Well, he might have been (and still is?) sincere in his belief that his views were correct.

She's for all intents and purposes, gone.
Seriously, what the fuck does it have to do with anything.
Alex, I recently chopped the roofing man from my contacts (all, phone/email/FB), due to his utter lack of seeing anything beyond his nose/Fox News. It's sad that someone can't see counter points or objective opinion as anything but a personal attack. The final straw for me, was touting that Snopes and Politifact were "fake", and he backed it up with an article from "youngcons".
The irony was almost palpable.
As for the hardened DJT supporter, I got a prime example of it yesterday from someone in my home town:

What you guys seem to not understand is that trolls will intentionally talk shit just to rouse your ire. Their intent is not to have reasonable dialogue. They only seek attention. Ignoring them makes them go away because it ruins their "fun."

Yeah, I get that. But, knowing him for 15 years, and looking back, his debating/discussion tactics were always like that.
As for that douchenozzle in the screen shot, I barely know that guy, not real sure why he's a "friend". I'll chalk it up to a drunken "accept" mistake.
But in any case, he's the prime example of the DJT troll/supporter.
I have a guess that he hasn't even watched the news about anything since his guy "won", since that's all that matters. Meanwhile, his guy is churning a cauldron of incompetent propaganda mixed with a cup of trainwreck and a dash of clusterfuck.

Stephen Miller's getting some attention here, he came from Santa Monica and a friend of mine used to be friends with him. Miller was friends with him until they went to high school, when Miller told my friend they could no longer be friends because he couldn't be friends with a Latino.
Someone tracked down his letter to the local Santa Monica paper from when he was sixteen.

I spent more time with John (Roofer) than anybody else and he has always had those point of views. He is a good person who would give the shirt off his back or help anybody in anyway that he could if you asked him for his help.
So while I don't see eye to eye with him on many things he will remain my friend. I don't throw my friends away just because they don't believe the same things I do with some expectations of course.
I also don't believe in saying things behind a friends back when they aren't there to defend themselves. So I ask that you refrain from any mudslinging on John's behalf.

I'm not mudslinging Phil, he just started going at other friends (and family/sister) about stuff, and thought it would just be best to avoid that interaction going forward.
I agree with your assessment about him, it's just that he doesn't seem to even humor someone else's opinion on something, resulting in him seemingly taking it personally that you're against him.
Remember the "prison island" conversation?
I have not called him any names, I have not said that he's a bad person (or any other variant), just that his extreme passion in his ideas and beliefs and apparent unwillingness to entertain anything to the contrary, made it all but impossible to have what I would consider a constructive conversation with him.
Fucking politics.... up until this year, this is exactly why I never discussed it, with anyone. Because this kind of shit happens.
