Why is President Trump keeping his base? I think I have finally figured out the love his base has shown for him.
Most of us who are not dedicated Fox News junkies and actually get our news from CBS, NBC, ABC, The Observer and The Pilot get to read and see both sides and opinions of our president.
Most of us know by now after more than two years that he is not the only one who can fix everything. The coal industry is on a steady decline, auto plants are closing in one state and some are relocating to cheaper-wage states. Well-paying jobs are now relocating to become poor-paying jobs. He has fired two complete White House staffs because he is “the only one who can fix things.”
Yes, the economy he inherited is doing well, and people who used to work in retail sales are now working in non-air-conditioned warehouses. Nothing he is doing seems to be working, so why do his people still love him?
Well, lately he has shown himself to be even more of a racist than we all knew he was. Folks who are racist love leaders who think just like they do. His latest racist rants are sure to get him some more support from closet racists who never admit to being racist, but we easily see their phoniness.
Of course not every Trump supporter is a racist, but you can bet every openly racist is a supporter, some are just easily duped.
