So, this happened on Saturday.
Speaking at a campaign rally in Iowa Saturday, GOP Presidential frontrunner and giant sentient circus peanut Donald Trump riffed about his amazing poll numbers and very great supporters, as he tends to do. Commenting on how loyal his supporters are, The Donald highlighted just how bad he could behave without losing a vote from his fanatic base.
“They say I have the most loyal people,” the celebrity billionaire blurted. “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s incredible!”
Or, in other words, “the people who love me are brain-dead morons that don’t care what I do as long as I say awful shit about non-white people and tell them we are going to Make America Great Again!”
The thing is, he ain’t lying. He has courted the dumb, angry, bigoted, white crowd and has them wrapped around his finger. He tells them what they want to hear — brown people are the cause of all of your problems — and they absolutely love him for it. As long as he’s peddling white resentment, they’ll stick by his side through thick and thin.
