33. I really LOVE the term MAGABomber. It's perfection!

An outstanding framing job! LOVE it! Throws so much shade on the whole MAGA construct. Adds massive negativity, which is very well deserved.

I look at those jerks at his rallies, cheering his insults, gobbling up his lies, hooting and yowling and mindlessly chanting “Lock her up!” - it’s like a two-minute hate. No - a whole maddening string of two-minute hates at every rally. That’s all those rallies are! And these assholes flock to it, with their deep-seated inner sewers of resentment, racism, misogyny, bullying, misplaced sense of entitlement, and every bad thing your mom (hopefully) told you not to do.

One of my favorite movies is “Forbidden Planet,” where a brilliant scientist is overcome by his inner demons, which his own research into boosting his mental powers had unleashed. He called them “monsters from the id.” When those monsters escaped into the open, mayhem, violence, horror, and death soon followed.

I wonder if that’s what we’re seeing - what trump is bringing out in people. What he’s connecting with, deep inside his fans, who’ve probably been told those feelings and urges and deeper, baser instincts are not nice and should be suppressed and gotten over and buried. And they don’t want to have to be suppressed like that anymore. Nor do they want to be told those inclinations are bad or undesirable or immoral or wrong or anti-social. They want that inner poison to be validated, which I suspect is why they love trump and cling to him so ardently. HE says it’s okay. I look at those rallies and those wretched attendees and cannot stop asking myself - “what does that say about them?”

After all, trump couldn’t connect so thoroughly and intensely with that element - if it wasn’t already there in the first place.
