Calling Trump deplorable is an understatement. But there’s this:

When he started running last year, I thought he had a clear advantage over the others. They were pols and as such had to appear at least to some degree statesman-like. Trump had no such limitation. He was free to pander freely — telling the base what was in their hearts and what they wanted to hear.

So. What has Trump ever said, outside his ad hominem attacks, that no modern Republican pol or hack hasn’t said? He’s spewing the same old Republican shit, just slightly differently, and louder. Nothing substantively different.

Trump’s supporters then are the same old Republican haters. The only thing different with Trump is the packaging. Again; substance is exactly the same.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
