This, Mike, is what happens when one party (GOP) rounds up all the folks who have never cared a wit about history, science, psychology and the outside world in general, folks totally devoid of a rational curiosity, telling them that they, with their Bibles and guns, are the salt of the earth, and then to boot directs them to tune into Fox News for their political indoctrination.

Then, by God, with all that they are fully primed for a con leader like Trump to worship.
