Cheering for a psychopath at a podium is objectively troublesome.
Do you ever find yourself wondering what the story is with those thrilled faces behind Donald Trump at his rallies?
Unlike us they’re not spies in a house of horrors.
That sea of Make America Great Again hats doesn’t give them the creeps.
When Trump cues them as he did in Phoenix on August 22 to jeer John McCain – they have no ambivalence about belittling a war hero battling brain cancer.
When Trump whines about the coverage his Charlottesville rant got they realize and don’t care that he’s rewriting what he said—they heard him confer moral equivalence on neo-Nazis and anti-Nazis.
But his act entertains them and their complicity in his edits adds a perverse pleasure to the press hatred he rouses in them.
They can’t all be the 9 percent of Americans who believe that holding white supremacist or neo-Nazi views is acceptable.
Who are these people?
