As Trump continues to act

like a disgusting childlike imbecile, I'm curious as to what Trump supporters are thinking. Now then, for those people who still support him, I ask - what would you do if your child came home from school and told you about a teacher who ridiculed a disabled boy…or that a teacher cheered as a child was beaten…or a little girl was ridiculed by telling her that she wasn't pretty; and that she needed to go sit in the back of the classroom. How would a parent react hearing of this? Would they rally around the teacher in defense of those actions?
Common decency tells us to denounce bad behavior, moreover, it should never be accepted, by anyone, especially from the leader of the free world. The one person who should be setting the tone for civility - is not. We can not allow Trumps unseemly thuggish actions and words be normalized! Donald Trump is the PRESIDENT of the United States, and as such, should always be held accountable by all of us; but more than anyone, his base must begin to speak out against his childish nonsense. Simply put - he needs them - he just may listen.

Remember? Trump has not shot anyone on Fifth Avenue....so all is well with them.

You make a good point. But the Trumpkins are, first and foremost, cult members.

So we have a situation where his base may as well wear brown shirts. The Republicans are afraid to cross him because they don't want to alienate his base. So they sit there silently while he throws American values of decency to the wind.
