Jimmy Kimmel Live lampooned the Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump after the candidate made it clear how much he loved the “poorly educated” vote during his victory speech on Monday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
And to show their appreciation for Trump’s gratitude, his beloved supported made a special Trump campaign video titled “Poorly Educated For Donald Trump.” Here’s the video via YouTube.
In case you missed it, here’s what Trump said on Monday:
‘We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated! We’re the smartest people, we’re the most loyal people, and you know what I’m happy about? Because I’ve been saying it for a long time. 46% were the Hispanics—46%, number one with Hispanics. I’m really happy about that.’ Trump boasted before the Nevada crowd.
For almost a year now, Trump’s managed to tap into the anger of the ignorant and misinformed across the nation. In fact, he kicked off his campaign by labeling Mexican immigrants as rapist and criminals.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” he said. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems…they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
Trump’s use of fear, is the key to his political success. A poorly educated Republican voter in Mississippi may have never thought about a Mexican immigrant raping his wife before Trump “informed” him of that issue, but now it’s a top concern along with the imminent threat of “Islamic Terrorism.”
For many poorly educated people, introducing a big, new, exotic fear into their minds serves as much of a distraction from their daily lives as a mindless action movie — or a reality show about a bunch of celebrities pretending to work for a narcissistic billionaire with terrible hair.
Trump’s a master of tried and true political strategy called “LOOK OVER THERE!”
Unfortunately, Trump’s strategy has worked very well throughout U.S. history, from the creation of Jim Crowe laws, McCarthyism, to today’s fabled “War on Drugs,” people look for an excuse to blame others for their problems. Hopefully, this downside of people’s human nature won’t get the better of America come November 8th.
