According to Katy Tur of MSNBC, when she interviewed Trump voters and ask them why they voted for him, they said because they thought he would make the right decisions. How comical is that? A man who has failed so badly at business that he needed the Russians to bail him out as a last resort.

It’s a case of empty minds electing one of their own, I guess.
