    Thumbs up "Why do Liberals think Trump supporters are Stupid?"

    'An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

    The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters - the rich, the poor, the malignant and the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don't...

    That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought "Fine."

    That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay."

    That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, "No problem."

    That when he made up stories about seeing muslim-Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, "Not an issue."

    That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn't care, you chirped, "He sure knows me."

    That when you heard him illustrate his own character by telling that cute story about the elderly guest bleeding on the floor at his country club, the story about how he turned his back and how it was all an imposition on him, you said, "That's cool!"

    That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw.

    That when you heard him brag that he doesn't read books, you said, "Well, who has time?"

    That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn't commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, "That makes sense."

    That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, "Yes!"

    That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man's coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, "What a great guy!"

    That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, "Thumbs up!"

    That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, "That's the way I want my President to be."

    That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they're supposed to be regulating and you have said, "What a genius!"

    That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, "That's smart!"

    That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was the middle of water and you have said, "That makes sense."

    That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, "falling in love" with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, "That's statesmanship!"

    That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids. has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas - he explains that they’re just “animals” - and you say, “well, ok then.”

    That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise.

    What you don't get, Trump supporters in 2019, is that succumbing to frustration and thinking of you as stupid may be wrong and unhelpful, but it's also...hear me...charitable.

    Because if you're NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are less flattering.'
    Trump isn't our 45th American president; he's our 1st Russian one.

    Hello Bourbon,

    No, I don't think Trump supporters are stupid.

    I think they made a bad choice.

    I know they have their reasons.

    I disagree with them.

    I wouldn't call them stupid, rather the majority are played or unknowingly manipulated by Trump and an array of media demogogues framing thier point of view, telling them what they want to hear, easy answers to difficult questions

    A traditional conservative wouldn't be a Trump advocate, however, they would approve of a lot of the policies he has enacted, meaning until someone better comes along in the GOP they will coninue to support Trump

    If stupidity can be defined as being susceptible to a conman, they are. They were taken in by a guy who lies over and over and is still doing it. Trump was totally unqualified to be president and he proved it the last 2 years. But the suckers are still there, unmoved.

    I thought that in the beginning, many of them wanted the Supreme Court nomination and most of them hated Hillary, but those that continue to support him as he trashes the state of our Union shouldn’t be called smart.
    That’s why I’m so screwed up, because I had a father who pushed me so hard,” Trump acknowledged in 2007, in a brief and rare moment of self-awareness.

    I don't think Republicans are stupid.

    I think the Republicans are a group of disgruntled White Nationalists, whose policies are hateful, racist, self-centered, reckless, dangerous, and out of touch with the vocal majority.

    People who deliberately remain ignorant of the outside world and wilfully hang onto their racist brainwashing are in effect, whatever they may score on IQ, extremely stupid.

    The rich people who 'just got a lot richer' think they are smart because they tend to measure everything in terms of wealth and they 'just got a lot richer.'

    The reason they hated Hillary is that the right-wing machine demonized her for a generation. They ran phony house investigations for 2 decades. They figured she was a potential Dem candidate somewhere down the line and they went after her over and over. It was cold and ruthless, in short Republican. Those who hate her are mostly those who love Trump. They swallow the lies and propaganda completely. They are suscepible to conmen.

    Since McCarthy, directly class politics have hardly been possible in the 'States, so they've been replaced by competition between (largely imagined) groups, archaic religiosity, an obsession with unborn children and the like (all of a sudden they are being 'murdered', instead of being kept in slums, sold drugs and being kept expensively in jails as the Bible presumably insists). Group politics has ended up taking away the last silly 'compensations' in racist prestige from the biggest group of exploited workers, so, as in 'thirties Germany, the masters have had to put in a ranting Fuhrer. Unfortunately, all they could get was a rather pathetic TV 'personality' with no good qualities whatever.

    Why? The trash-mouthed Hitler clone has done more positive acts in 2 years than Obummer did in 8 years. You've never had it economically better in your life. I could write enough reasons to show that leftist are stupid to ware out my keyboard and turn my fingers to stubs.

    BTW, leftist aren't "liberals." They're socialist authoritarians. Traditional/classical American liberalism is displayed in the Constitution, especially the Bill Of Rights, that document y'all leftist hate.
