Remember how horrifying it was when a Trump/Kavanaugh supporter from Montana convinced her teenage daughters that “being groped is no big deal?”
In the disturbing clip, which was aired as part of a news segment on MSNBC last month, the women told the reporter “Groping a woman? At 18? I mean, how many guys do you know who think that’s no big deal? It’s not a big deal.”
This is despite the fact that her two teenage daughters were with her at the time, and with both sadly nodding in agreement with their mother’s words.
Well, it turns out it’s not just sexual assault that Trump fans will support. If this latest clip is anything to go by, it looks like anything goes.
The short video was tweeted by a US journalist, and shows the terrifying level of dedication of Trump’s supporters.
While visiting a Trump rally, Holly Figueroa O’Reilly asked a group of MAGA-hat wearers what issues the hoped the President would discuss, to which they responded: “It doesn’t matter what he says, we’ll support it.”
What do you want to hear Trump talk about?
“We don’t really care what he says, we’ll support it.”
There’s a word for this:

This isn’t really shocking, since 13 sexual assault allegations and fist-pumping at this year’s the 9/11 Memorial hasn’t deterred them. Still, considering some of the President’s more heinous policies, knowing that his fans will support him no matter what is seriously troubling, especially with the mid-terms coming up.
And Twitter seems to agree.
These are scary times. Never in my lifetime did I ever think I would witness anything resembling this level of manipulation.

This is why I stopped even trying to talk to them. To them, he literally could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue, and they wouldn’t care. It’s impossible to have an intelligent, sensible discussion with people like that.

People wonder how Jim Jones or David Koresh were able to get others to do anything they were told, including allowing themselves and their children to die. These people would commit crimes including violent crimes if Trump told them too. This is how Hitler was successful.

That is exactly why you must vote. These people are going to turn out for GOP candidates. They are a cult. They will support any atrocity trump will commit in future. The only hope is for Dems to win seats.
