The thing to understand about Republicans is that they’re spite voters. Most of us get that, but lots of people don’t. When someone says Republicans vote against their self-interest, I think to myself, nope — SPITE is just the overriding self-interest that they’re affirmatively voting for.
I didn’t used to be, but now I’m also a spite voter. It’s one of the innumerable ways the Trump administration has made me a worse person. If the election goes our way, I want President Biden to disband Space Force just to spite Trump, who will otherwise endlessly brag about that as his “legacy.”

Also, observing the end of the above clip, I realized Trump has something in common with his wife after all, aside from their both being amoral, money-grubbing shitheads, slanderers of immigrants and vile racist birthers. Both Trumps “smile” as if they were spider monkeys briefly baring their fangs to discourage a rival from approaching their food source. It’s grotesque.
