27. No doubt Trump's years as a reality tv star, and his notoriety in general, had a lot to do with it.

Lack of education, rightwing media propaganda, latent racism and a variety of other conditions also contributed to his ability to control his MAGA followers. It was a confluence of many factors.

What I find perplexing is Trump's ability to cast a spell over well-educated, experienced and intelligent men and women, convincing them to go along with his crackpot schemes, commit serious crimes and risk lengthy prison sentences, often with little to gain themselves.
