Donald Trump is a threat to our democracy However, his base poses a bigger threat to our democracy. There is a great swath of Americans who ignorantly elected this man to the highest office in the Country. Moreover, they do not regret what we are seeing.
Donald Trump will resign. After his resignation, the average, common, ignorant American who voted for Trump will still be with us. We will be left with the ignorance of the Trump base, hiding their heads in the sand waiting for the next slick politician to dupe them again.
The average, everyday “American” who voted for Trump swallowed his lies. They could not see the Trump’s ignorance because they were blinded by their own ignorance. They did not object to his racism because of their own racism. They did not mind his soiled character, because of their own soiled character.
The average Trump voter did not mind Trump’s thuggish, low class behavior. They relished in it. It spoke to them. Trump is neither a thug or low class to his base.
The average bonehead was not bothered by Trump’s chest-beating persona, his cowardly bullying, his brutish temperament, his anger and his hatred. Trump’s base is not bothered by Trump’s lack of experience in government. Trump is a billionaire businessman. That was all that matters to his base-regardless of how many bankruptcies Trump used to save himself from financial ruin.
Honor, integrity, honesty, compassion, and statesmanship are meaningless to the average Trumpite. For them, money talks, and because Trump has money he can do no wrong. Trump promised jobs. They heard that. That meant a better economy, and a better economy was good for everybody. However, they ignore Trump’s lack of specifics, his artful dodge, his failure to deliver a plan showing he can back up his words with actions.
The average, everyday Trumpster fell for the promise of more jobs and a better economy. After all, Trump is a billionaire businessman. If he could do that for himself, he should be able to do it for America, making America great again with his financial wizardry. Trumpites were not experiencing the American Dream under the Democrats, they felt they had lost it, that the leadership was out of touch with their needs. They found an empty alternative, Trump was promising the American Dream, a good job, a chicken in the pot and money in their pockets—all promises no substance.
If Trump could do it for himself, he should be able to do it for America. Who cares about a specific plan, the empty promise is good enough. Just think, the government didn’t know how to make good deals, said Trump, but he can make a detail that will put money in American’s pockets, making them and our country great again. Trump promised he could make America rich again. And his followers believed him.
Trump appealed to his base’s basic instincts. They hate the Mexicans and the Muslims, and so does Trump. His base doesn’t have any respect for the black community, and neither does Trump. His base doesn’t have any respect for women, and neither does Trump. Trump’s base doesn’t have any respect for foreign governments, and neither does Trump. The Trump base doesn’t have any respect for our government, and neither does Trump.
The Trumpsters don’t believe that assault rifles should be banned, and neither does Trump. Trumpsters believed that the Christian religion should be the main driving force of government, and so does Trump… at least he led his base to believe that he did.
Trump created a marriage made in heaven.
Trump and the average, everyday Trumpster believe that the poor are nothing but a drag on the American economy, and that we should let them suffer, and redirect that money to the top one percent so that they can use it to create jobs, jobs for the Trump base under a trickledown theory.
Instead of spending money on the poor, it would be better to spend money on the military creating jobs and making the country safer.
Trump believes we need to feed the top one percent to make money for the rest of the country. To get a real trickledown effect, we must feed the top. If this means letting the rest of America sink or swim, so be it. This is the same Republican vision that we have seen for decades: Let the poor go hungry and feed the rich. This is the best way to create and sustain a financially stable middle class.
Trump will bring a change to their economic situation by serving the same cold bowl of grits; while the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer, and the country goes slowly down the drain.
These every day, average, selfish, bunch of hypocrites, voted for Trump and Jesus, they will be disappointed.
However, Trump’s failures won’t change a thing and these Trumpsters are still going to be with us after Trump has left the building.
