Why do Trump disciples have so much trouble understanding the difference between Joe Biden firing the prosecutor and Trump's actions?
Here's the difference: Biden did make it a condition that Ukraine fire a corrupt prosecutor before the USA gave them any money. That was out in the open and approved of by both countries. The main point is the prosecutor WAS corrupt.
Trump sneakily implied that the Ukrainian president would not get any money, and definitely implied that he would not be welcome in the white House, until he investigated the Bidens.
Biden did what he did because the prosecutor WAS corrupt. Trump did what he did to make Biden, his political opponent, look bad. It stands to reason that the corrupt Trump does not care about corruption, but does care about smearing an opponent, and the hearings have proved that.
Have I answered my own question? Is it because they are Trump's disciples, and figure he can do no wrong? Do they love corruption themselves?
I left out one important piece of information: BOTH Ukraine and the USA called for corrupt prosecutor Shokin's firing because he was NOT - repeat NOT - investigating corruption. So it is the OPPOSITE of what some people think. They think Biden fired Shokin for fear he would get his son in trouble. No. Biden fired Shokin because he would NOT possibly get his son in trouble! Shokin wasn't doing his job.

Even here, you have (at least) 2 people (@Ryde and #Gazoo) pushing the false narrative that the prosecutor WAS investigating Biden Jr's company, when all records show he was NOT.
The consensus of EVERYONE, including the GOP in Congress, the IMF, and the EU was that the Prosecutor needed to go.
It was the OFFICIAL POLICY of the United States. It was not something Biden did "on his own".
After the prosecutor was removed and replaced, investigations into Biden Jr's company WERE restarted.

Why do you assert that Prosecutor Shokin was corrupt? What evidence do you have?
Joe Biden said his replacement was not corrupt. The problem with your argument is that the successor also said that Shokin was not corrupt which is contrary to your assertion.
Could it be that the corrupt people in Ukraine and the US did not like having an honest prosecutor looking into their doings and decided to gang together and call him corrupt to justify his dismissal?
"Trump sneakily implied that the Ukrainian president would not get any money ..." Yes, it was so sneaky that the Ukrainian President knew nothing about it!
Shokin was still investigating Zlochevsky who owned Burisma.
Remember, the US and Ukraine governments were in agreement at that point because the US had just effected a regime change on Ukraine. The Ukrainian government were US puppets who agreed that having Shokin investigating their gravy train would not benefit either of them.Source(s): https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/state-depar... https://www.zerohedge.com/political/john-solomon-d... https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/ukrainian-i...

The European Union wanted Biden to do it and it was approved by them. There was no Quid Pro Quo.

They KNOW the difference but refuse to admit it. The Trumpchumps drank the KoolAid and are no different from Scientologists in their fear of heresy.

The difference is that Biden is a criminal protected by the equally criminal deep state while Trump is innocent and being persecuted by a deep state that's angry they didn't do enough to rig the 2016 presidential election in Hillary's favor.

I would put it more simply:
Joe Biden urged a foreign government to fire a corrupt prosecutor after international consensus was reached on the prosecutor's corruption. Biden wanted a stronger Ukraine.
Donald Trump urged a foreign President to announce an investigation into his principal political rival, and didn't care whether an actual investigation took place. Trump wanted political PR.
