It has long been my contention that Trump’s base consists of people who have been thoroughly deranged by:
- Nearly 8 years of Barack Obama’s destructive, divisive presidency, combined with
- Decades of tin-eared, squishy, corrupt, cronyist Republican leadership that has only gotten worse since Obama was elected.
So thorough is said derangement that it has impaired the good sense of many voters (particularly evangelicals), hence Trump.
Andrew Klavan encapsulates all this in an excellent video that, while employing a good deal of exaggeration for humorous effect, is nevertheless reflective of the truth.
Trump voters (particularly Christian ones), you really need to calm down and reconsider.
