Donald Trump only hires the best people, although many of those people are headed to or sitting in jail today. He also only has the best supporters, although he lies about who votes for him just like he lies about everything else.
Americans have been led to believe that it is the “forgotten American” who voted for Trump. This is, like most things Trump says, simply untrue. Many Trump voters have cited their opposition to the “liberal elite” as a reason to vote for the current president and believe that the average Trump voters are blue collar, working-class Americans. However, only one-third of those who voted for Trump are in lower than average income brackets, a far smaller percentage than those who voted for Hillary Clinton. Another third had annual incomes of over $100,000, a larger percentage than those who voted for Clinton.
Statements made by Trump that his voters buy into and the twisted-up hypocrisy in the Trump camp is also evident. For instance, 61.8 percent believe Trump is “highly authentic” and acknowledge that he lies, but say he doesn’t mean the lies and that his twisting of the facts is a form of “symbolic protest.” 31 percent are “staunch conservatives”; however, most Trump supporters believe that he had an affair with Stormy Daniels while married and don’t care.
There’s also a significantly higher level of racism among Trump’s voters. A majority of Trump voters believe that a White History Month is necessary. 68 percent believe that foreign influences are destroying the American way of life. More than half believe that racism against white Americans is a bigger or equal problem as racism against people of color.
Why should anyone believe what Trump says about his voters? He doesn’t even tell the truth about himself.
Twitter was not buying Trump’s rhetoric, either. See some of their responses below.
