Trump’s candid admission is yet another in which he seems to allude that his supporters are, at best, uncritical.
Last week, Trump said he could murder someone in cold blood and not lose any of his loyal followers.
“They say I have the most loyal people,” Trump at a rally in Iowa, “Where I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible.”
While the Times notes that Trump’s supporters don’t care what he says, “[w]hat they may not know is how deliberately he is currying their favor.”
This week, Trump supporter Karen Bruno said that she is so angry with politics in this country that no matter what Trump says, she will support him.
