Another fearful post from a Trump supporter: "Why do Liberals believe Trump supporters are stupid?"
The serious answer.
Sigh; Sometimes we get into this rhetorical trap out of frustration, but if we're 100% honest with you, we would admit that we also find some people on our own side stupid, mostly people who have cooked the complicated questions in slogans and really don't understand what they're saying. I think you're probably looking at the dumbs of your countrymen and thinking, "Jesus, this guy barely rubs his brain cells together, but he can wave at least one sign."
No, that's what we really think about Trump supporters, the rich, the poor, the bad and the innocent, who think and who don't think.
When you saw a man who owned a fraudulent university aimed at defrauding poor people, you thought, "Good."
When you saw a man who used to stiffen his creditors, you said, "Okay."
When you heard him proudly boast of his own history of sexual abuse, you said, "No problem."
When he made up stories of thousands of Muslim Americans celebrating the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, "No problem."
When you saw him boast that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you didn't care, you chirped: "He knows me for sure."
When you heard him illustrate his own character by telling the sweet story about the older guest bleeding on the floor in his country club, the story of how he turned away from him and how everything was imposed on him, you said "that's cool!"
When you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you've ever seen.
When you heard him brag that he was not reading books, you said, "Well, who has time?"
When the Central Park Five were compensated for innocent men convicted of a crime they didn't commit and he angrily said they should still be in prison, you said, "That makes sense."
When you heard him order his followers to beat demonstrators and he hired lawyers, you thought, "Yes!"
When you heard him order a rally to confiscate a man's coat before it was thrown into the freezing air, you said, "What a great guy!"
That you saw the parade of neo-Nazis and white Supremacists he was content with while refusing to condemn the direct Nazis and you said, "Thumbs up!"
That you heard him unable to speak to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his election victory, you said, "This is how I want my president to be."
That you saw him remove expertise from all levels of government for the benefit of people making money removing protective measures in the industries they were supposed to regulate, and you said, "What a genius!"
You have heard that he continues to benefit from his business, in part by taking advantage of his position as President until he overwhelms the Secret Service for the place in the property he owns, and you said, "This is smart "
That you heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was in the middle of the water and you said, "It makes sense."
You saw him start fighting with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising and quoting Russia, "falling in love with the dictator of North Korea," and you said, "This is state art!"
That you've seen all the thousands of other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and downright animal rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and still appear grinning and threatening with your MAGA hats to beat up anyone who says it Otherwise.
What you, Trump supporters in 2018, don't get is that it can be wrong and not helpful to indulge in your frustration and think you're stupid, but it's also … listen to me … charitable.
Because if you are NOT stupid, we have to turn to other explanations, and most of them are * less * flattering.
