The primitive people I refer to, Heather, are, indeed, Trump supporters. You see Trump has been a life long failure, except for the life that his father’s hundreds of millions gave him along with the people he stiffed for the work that they did for him, and most importantly the life that Russian money gave him.

Things is most of Trump’s supporters are folks who see themselves as failures, so they identify with him because he makes failure look like a success. Moreover, they’re looking for someone to blame their shortcomings on, and Trump is there to provide the scapegoats they require and tell them that, like him, they are the salt of the earth. Thus, wow, what hero they have in the Donald. Ego primitives the whole lot of them.
