1. I think the hatred of others is the key.

They are not interested in the nation or it's policies.
The only issues they might care about are local ones like noisy neighbors or kids driving too fast on weekend nights.
Federal issues are too distant and abstract to be of any real concern.

But they LOVE the permission to hate and vent that hate with abandon.
The more chaos and destruction Trump causes, the more they love him.
He causes high and mighty people to despair and this is great entertainment for them.
They have no concept that this chaos will ever affect their daily lives, only that it makes distant others miserable which is fun to watch.

So they will automatically defend Trump and insult anyone who's against him because they don't bother to understand any of the issues at stake.
It's just too much fun to be an asshole and be part of a community that supports assholiness.
