Vladimir Putin Is More Popular Worldwide Than Donald Trump Is, and other fun stuff
Barack Obama is 12 places higher than Donald Trump. Michelle Obama is 18 places higher than Melania Trump.
The number of people who believe in 'Pizzagate' and believe President Obama was or was probably born in Kenya is quite similar to the number of Trump supporters (deplorables). At least 3/4 of Trump supporters hold these demented beliefs. If you like I will do the math for you.
35% of the poll respondents say it is true or probably true that the Hillary Clinton campaign was involved with satanism, human trafficking and pedophilia. 34% say that it is true or probably true that President Obama was born in Kenya.
Trump's approval is 42-43%, so we can see that there is about 8 or 9 pts of room for Trump supporters that are not complete nutcases. So there are some Trump supporters who are not evil or mentally or psychologically messed up, but they are a distinct minority.
Trump's campaign rally Wednesday night echoed a modern day lynch mob, as Trump paused for 13 seconds to listen to his handiwork
As thousands chanted “Send her back!” at a campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., Wednesday night, the president paused to let it amplify.
He listened for 13 seconds, as the stray shouts stretched into a uniform roar. Some raised campaign signs or fists to the rhythm of the crowd as they yelled. Some only murmured along. A few were children, following the lead of the adults sitting in front-row seats behind President Trump.
“Send her back! Send her back!” they yelled in unison, advocating for deporting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), an American citizen and refugee, to Somalia, where she was born.
The chanting echoed Trump’s own racist comments on Sunday, when he suggested that four minority congresswomen, including Omar, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” rather than remain in the United States.
But while Trump’s response to the condemnation was familiar — doubling down, with the support of an enthusiastic crowd — Wednesday’s chanting alarmed many observers who suggested the president’s invective could endanger the safety of the minority congresswomen and feed the country’s ugliest impulses.“This is the sound of illiberalism, intolerance,” Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said on Twitter. “Listen closely: it’s a danger not just to immigrants and minorities but to all Americans.”
Donald Trump doesnt force his supporters to echo his racism, they do it willingly. Sadly, we see every that many outside of Trump's base are willing to give Trump supporters a complete and total pass. This incredible indifference is eating away at the soul of our country.
