Trump voters are upset because people are calling them stupid. [View all]

Trump voters elected the most unqualified, incompetent, dishonest, greedy, corrupt person ever to the presidency. They do not have the ability to recognize any of it. What are people supposed to call that? Smart.

Not only are they stupid they also have a mental defect that does not allow them to recognize all of what I described about Trump. It's a mental defect that has killed millions of people throughout history. Blindly following until your life is destroyed.
