from The Daily Sheeple:
When Trump’s presidential campaign first began, everyone was baffled by how quickly he rose in the polls and left every other contender in the dust. In retrospect, his success makes sense. Trump managed to resonate with voters who were tired of the establishment, and wanted anybody but Bush or Clinton. They were tired of Ivy League pontificators, and were ready for a candidate who said whatever he wanted without any kind of filter. It was almost as if Trump stumbled upon a secret cheat code for winning elections. Say what you want in simple terms, no matter how brash or un-PC it may sound, and the people will notice you and respect you.
This has allowed him to wriggle out of every controversial statement he’s ever made while still coming out on top. However, he said something over the weekend that has many of his supporters and detractors wondering if he has gone too far.
Over the weekend, Donald Trump, as he is wont to do, made some news. While extolling the loyalty of his supporters, he mused, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
He then blasted the “soft” support for other Republican contenders. “My people stay,” he said.
Try to imagine how narcissistic you would have to be to say something like that. That’s like something a mob boss would say. This is cartoon supervillian territory. Still, despite the fact that he just insulted his own supporters by saying they’re sheepish enough to vote for him even if he murders a stranger in broad daylight, I imagine he’ll walk away from this statement with more support. It’s happened countless times before, and this will be no exception.
