People Say Why They Still Support President Trump

I’m a very wealthy person living in West Palm Beach, Florida. I support Trump because, in spite of the BS he hands out to the common folks about them being his kind of people, it’s really those of my ilk that he prefers— rich GOP types, his donors. The first thing he did as president was give us Wall Street investing, elite types a big, fat tax break, on the US tab.

Hey, man, I’m a White supremacist. Trump has made it clear that he wants more migrant peoples from pristine White countries like, say, Norway, not those shithole counties in Africa and the Caribbean.

I’m an evangelical Christian, one of God’s chosen people. I support the president because he appoints conservative judges that well vote to save the lives of the unborn. It is important that we save all lives, even the seriously defective ones, so that we can decide later which ones to ignore or abuse.

I’m that sweet little old lady that lives at the end of the street. I don’t care or know much about politics, history or international affair, all those fancy subjects they teach in college. I’m focused on my darling grandchildren. I support President Trump because he said he is bringing back jobs that were stolen by that nasty China country. This way my grandchildren will have good jobs when they grow up.

It’s this way, people, I’m a pissed off Bernie supporter. These crappy Democrats keep finding ways to cheat him out of the nomination, so I’m probably once again going to have to vote for Trump.

I’m a loyal Fox viewer, though I was glad to see that Smith fellow leave. My gut says Fox tells it straight. They support my president, so I guess he must be doing one hell of a good job. He has my vote again, once this dumb witch-hunt thing blows over.

I’m a loyal Republican politician. I support Mr. Trump because my constituents love him. After all this is still somehow a democracy, so the people’s wishes must rule.

You probably don’t know much about me. I work for the IRA, the international research agency, in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I and my colleagues jobs are to flood American Internet sites with disinformation that will confuse and weaken America’s faith in its institutions and undermine its basic system of democracy on behest of President Putin and Russian interests. We shape our discourse on Facebook and every other social platforms in ways that the essence of hate and conflict works best for Donald Trump. We see the natural chaos that is the Donald being in the presidency as the best and cheapest weapon we have for defeating America. So far it has exceeded all expectations.

If I voted, I would vote for Trump. But why bother. All politicians are the same anyway. Even the president says that. So why waste my time thinking about something I have no control over. Things are going to do what they are going to do. Democracy is probably overrated anyway. Sure things got a little rough in Hitler’s Nazi Germany, but that stuff can’t happen here.

Did I leave you out, other Trump supporter?
