Maybe I don't get it

It just seems the same people who hate our current president are the same people that hated our former president.

I'm using the term "president" here, but it could represent any leadership figure, group or action and applies equally to politics, businesses, friendships, religions, associations, families, etc.

I guess there is a subtle sense of accomplishment here that I don't quite understand. If we hate enough today, then we've done a good day's work -- being hateful, that is. Some folks seem to enjoy this more than making positive contributions and it appears that such acrimony rallies them around a cause like nothing else.
