Moderate, civilized, regular people do not express their love for Donald Trump. You know who does?

Angry, reactionary, small minded, racist, bigoted and completely unhinged people.

And Donald Trump naturally gravitates towards those who openly express their love and admiration for him. And he basically ignores everyone else, unless they criticize him, in which case he actively attacks them.

So there is no surprise this is who Trump's base is and this is who he likes. They like him, so he likes them, and the cycle is fed endlessly.

It will not end now because it has not ended yet, because Donald Trump needs someone to express their love and fidelity towards him. And these people will do that.

So we will continue to see this "outreach" on his part to this group of people. It will not stop. It will never stop.

2. Trump supporters come in several flavors...

Wrestling fans. They go just to get fired up in a place that lets them expose their animal natures.

Reality TV viewers. They watch because they want to validate their own dysfunctional behaviors.

Internet trolls. They love to stir up shit without having to worry about the consequences.

4. Many reality TV viewers are worse than stated...

They watch for the same reason many people rubberneck auto accidents...they ENJOY revelling in the misery of others. Validation of their own prejudices is like the appetizer course...the entree is ALWAYS the suffering or misfortune of others - the 'loser', the 'no-rose-for-you', the dressed down dancer who missed a step, the cooking contestant who missed an ingredient, the 'you're-fired' victim.

Reality TV viewership is many things, but evidence of a high brow intellect is rarely among them...

5. I was trying to be succinct...



Can't disagree with anything you posted. I remember my daughter watching that shit on MTV as a teenager. I couldn't stand it. I think she's grown out of it.

11. Add this,...FASCISTS WHO DON'T GIVE A FUCK:

And want to turn the world up side down for no particular reason, except they are deathly bored and looking to create mayhem, chaos, and turmoil just for fun and to piss off liberals.

6. He needs to keep them. He already has the wealthy vote with tax cuts and upper middle class

who care more about the stock market or their 401 k than racial equality or climate change
Religious freaks always vote anti choice no matter the candidate even before trump

Itís these bigoted low end dregs who could turn on him and not vote. His people know that so trump /miller keep them whipped up so they proudly go to vote with hate

The others are standard republican voters and show up regularly at the polls anyway the crazy are the crap shoot he has to keep going

7. People with authoritarian personalities do.

They are unable to think for themselves, need to be told what to do. Prime candidates for propaganda and snake oil salesmen.

They are mindless robots.

10. Among Trump loving proles, there is one common trait: stupidity.

The investment class supports him for self-serving reasons. Commoners have no legitimate reason to back him and do so to their own detriment. They're too stupid to realize they're cutting their own throats.
