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 supporters are fed full of propaganda and have lost their morals in the process. They overlook all the rotten things and say "I like what he is doing for the country" I am glad I am not like them.

I totally agree and just a heads up, expect:

But Obama... But Hillary... But (Insert name of Democrat of your choosing here)...





Edit: Oh, and "You are just a hateful person", expect that one too.

Is that a trick question?

Because they are?

Actually they aren't necessarily stupid, just stupidly ignorant

This is easy. The left tries to prop itself up by insisting its just Trump supporters that are stupid. Meanwhile they cheer the worst presidential candidates they've ever had - by far. And there are 24 which is even more nutty.

Stupid is bipartisan. The left is unable to see their own stupidity as well which is not surprising.

No "but Hilary" or "but Obama" just reality and common sense. A reality the left doesn't want to face.

Liberals don't think, they feel.

You're not hateful. You're just self righteous, arrogant, and a braggart who carries a double standard.

Only speaking for myself here, and I've said it many times before.
I didn't vote for a pastor, or a paragon of virtue. I voted for a knuckle and skull fighter who would dive into the DC cesspool swinging with both fists, and do what's right for the American people.
We don't have to, and won't agree on exactly what's right, but so far, I like the job he's doing.

I hired him to do a job, and he's doing it.

That "You are just a hateful person", was in reference to what I expected Trump supporters to say regarding Moldy and his thread. Thus far that prediction hasn't come to pass as yet, though another prediction I made has. The "But Obama... But Hillary... But (Insert name of Democrat of your choosing here)..." prediction came true with Rose42's "the worst presidential candidates they've ever had - by far. And there are 24" comment, it lines up with the "But (Insert name of Democrat of your choosing here)..." portion. While she didn't name any specific "Democrat", she did "insert" a Democrat or more accurately, a list of Democrats, even if she didn't list them by name. it came exactly 3 posts AFTER I posted the prediction, only 2 of which were so called "conservatives".

I expect more "but..." to come up as this thread continues.

Oh... I think we have plenty in common Tom...

I cringe at some of the tweets that come out..
(Laugh at others )

I am not a fan of everything your POTUS does...

And I am willing to give him a pass on the little stuff... (honestly could care less about his use of hyperbole...)

But I take issue with the generalization that I have lost my morals...
