I can think of a number of adages that describe the relationship that exists between Trump and his supporters – adages such as “the blind leading the lame”, “ignorance is bliss”, or “if you lay down with dogs you get up fleas”.
This truly is a bizarre out of touch demographic – a demographic that apparently not only embraces idiocy but in doing so are willing, even eager, to cast aside any semblance of decency.
“Patriots” caught up in a cult of personality that haven’t the moral or intellectual ability to understand the concept of moral turpitude.
A lot has been written about the level of education among the rank and file conservatives – a majority comprised of white males many said to be lacking either a high school or college diploma.
I’m not sure how much of a contributing factor or how accurate that is as I’m inclined to believe common sense would or should fill the gap – but that could be a personal bias as I myself have only a seventh grade education.
One things for sure though, even I have enough common sense to reject everything Trump stands for.
I have about as much use for Clinton as I do Trump, but this isn’t recess in the school yard where a petulant child Trump can announce that if any more information about his personal conduct related to women is forthcoming he’s going to talk more about Bill Clinton’s escapades – a childish “if you tell on me I’m going to tell on you” ignoring the fact that it isn’t Bill Clinton whose running for office.
Trump is a bile laden unmitigated asshole whose candidacy has been fueled by a media driven by audience shares, revenue, and more than a few beers at the Do Drop In or local trailer park by his constituency – a media that now suddenly has discovered they can work both sides of the fence without impacting the cash flow.
I say if the Trumpites actually believe Trump is fit for any office other than head street sweeper they should offer up their daughters for groping and advise their sons in laws to treat them “roughly” as Trump has advised while dropping to their knees in evangelical fervor giving thanks…….. that is if they really want to make America great again.
If they’re not willing to do that then they should shut the hell up and seek a little psychiatric counseling.
Ben Carson???? Why in the world is anyone asking “the pyramids were used to store grain” a single question or affording him a nano second of air time?
