It seems to me the supporters of Trump have many of his characteristics.

I suppose this is not surprising, but I had thought he was unique.

Can you not see any? It was a thought that occurred to me as I read through the thread.

Pardon me for causing trouble, I should know better.

Yes, This was the only reason I could find for supporting his election and it seemed like a good one at the time. I hadn't realised he's a petulant and profoundly dishonest schoolboy with an ego larger than the US and not a brain-cell in sight.

as I say: I voted for him in '16, and I'm gonna vote fo him again in nov

now, if he were truly dishonest or stupid or crazy: I wouldn't have for voted for him (or anyone) in '16, and I'd be stayin' home come this election day

petulant? egoistic? sure

dishonest? stupid? unbalanced? nah
