Trump Looked Vacant Minded In His First Debate With Hillary

This of course means that he was right on point with his giddy followers. You see I tend to agree with Bill Maher when he says that a huge chunk of Americans are stupid. Meaning that Trump has a rather large readymade fan club of vacant ones loving the vacant leader.

The critical remaining question is do the sane still at least slightly outnumber the nut jobs. Well maybe to call them nut jobs is a little too imprecise. Actually these are folks with a crude intellect that allows them to knee jerk respond to life only with their tribal impulse — I like only folks like myself is their entire being.

To put it plainly, crude and rude Trump plays well with America’s crude and rude.

Sorry this is so brief, but others like Dave Pell have done such a fine job of painting the Trump portrait there is really little I can add at this time.
