"Why do loyalists still submit to the president when his stances are unlawful and against the nation’s interests? Who and what are authoritarian followers? John Dean and Bob Altemeyer suggest that authoritarian followers are every bit as dangerous as authoritarian leaders.

You’ll find explanations from The Conman Scale, developed in the Protected content , and the National Survey on Authoritarianism, created in Protected content . This is as much of a psychological study of a slice of American voters as it is an indictment of a president who has embraced authoritarianism, and his followers who embrace him. Dean and Altemeyer explore the president’s mendacity in continually trying to rewrite history, whether by consistently lying, or the disinterest from the Oval Office regarding COVID-19 or the president’s parade through Lafayette Park outside of the White House for a photo-op, using the United States military as a show of force."
