Trump supporters portrayed as the stupidest, most gullible people on earth in merciless column (Raw Story link): Despite the seemingly never-ending controversies that have bedeviled the Trump administration, Republican voters continue to support the President at high levels. According to a Gallup poll, Trump’s approval rating among Republicans is at 90 percent.
On Friday, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson wondered why, noting that Trump has failed to deliver on most of his campaign promises.
Robinson lays out all the promises Trump has broken, chief among them his pledge to build a wall that Mexico would pay for.
“Trump promised to build a wall along the 2,000-mile southern border, with the cost of the “big, beautiful” barrier to be borne by Mexico,” Robinson writes. “Result: Not a single mile of Trump’s wall has been built.”
But that’s not the President’s only failure. There’s also the global economy.
“Result: Perhaps the most corrupt administration in U.S. history, riddled with nepotism and teeming with swamp creatures.”
Given all of that policy failure, Robinson concludes that Trump must be banking on the stupidity of his followers to get re-elected.
“He apparently believes his loyal supporters are the dumbest, most gullible people on earth. We shall see if he’s right.”
