BTRTN: "Some of the People All of the Time"... How Stupid Does Trump Think Republicans Are?

Born To Run The Numbers explains to Republicans that Donald Trump must think they are all as dumb as box of hammers:

Excerpts: "Abraham Lincoln... is credited with the observation that 'You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you canít fool all of the people all of the time.' He probably would not be thrilled to learn that his Grand Old Party has become 'some of the people all of the time...
"Please, my Republican friends, Donald Trump is not trying to retro-actively reposition his behavior on the phone call to Zelensky in an attempt to fool me. He knows he will never get my support. He is saying all this stuff because he desperately needs your support. You are the 43% approval rating that he is clinging to like a drunk hugging the porcelain...
"Yes, Donald Trump thinks that all you Republicans will completely dismiss, ignore, and reject the multiple texts from a career diplomat expressing outrage that military assistance is being held up pending Ukrainian abdication to an illegal scheme to aid the Presidentís re-election. Or, perhaps, more accurately, that you won't even take the time to read them for yourselves...Go ahead, RepublicansÖ toe Trumpís line. Don't trouble yourselves with testing his rationalizations and fabrications against fact.You can believe that Trump didnít use the leverage of your tax dollars to put the screws to the leader of a fragile, brutally threatened ally in order to force him to manufacture dirt on Trump's most threatening political adversary... Convince yourself Donald Trump is not a clear and present danger to our democracy, our Constitution, our standing in the global community, and the health of our planet. While you're at it, you can even believe that Alabama is reeling from a non-existent hurricane, that global warming isnít real, that Ted Cruzís father killed JFK, and that Obama was born in Kenya...There they are, President Lincoln...Some of the people, all of the time.

3. Little wonder why he thinks that.

They both serve the same master, Putin.
