You do see the gaping flaw in that logic, don't you?
That's what Trump supporters have said so far.

They are probably now drowning in cognitive dissonance, googling the whole WWW trying to find something to defend their master. We heard all kinds of excuses to justify his past behavior:
"it's a joke"
"That's not what he meant"
"he didn't know"
"that's who Trump is"
"they deserve it"
"it's the media"
"Trump evolved 5 seconds ago"
"you need to be institutionalized, Trump is perfect"
etc etc etc.

I guess that's the difference between us. I want my president to hold himself to a higher standard than to behave like one of the ridiculous and juvenile contestants in the WWE. Apparently, a WWE persona as your president is good enough for you.

But I will say the analogy of Donald Trump and WWE is a good one. The WWE is filled with guys who have big mouths and big egos and no class and who are as phony as a three dollar bill. Yep, that sounds like Trump all right.

You could easily just sum that up, in their favorite mantra.

'Trump tells like it is and doesn't do PC'.

That officially validates and justifies EVERYTHING he might say or do. Of course it only counts when Trump and his followers do it. Because obviously him and his flock are the only ones who know how to tell it like it is and be non-pc.

Hey, I'm just telling it how it is, and being non-PC. I thought you guys liked that?

-I could shoot someone on the streets and my supporters wouldn't care

that's enough for now. Hope someone comes up with links for more!
Trump made them do it right? Because people aren't responsible for their own actions right?

A higher standard? LMAO Like the standard you hold your buddy Obama, the bald faced liar, too? Your presidential standards are in the gutter.

So you don't dispute that Trump has a big mouth and big ego and no class and is as phony as a three dollar bill? Good of you to admit it. That's always the first step.

You have a lot of low lifes that don't want Trump in office so being of a "lower" form of life to begin with, they present an annoyance and a danger.
Mexicans can build tunnels, even into prisons. Have you forgotten that?

Also, in places where the wall already exists, they use catapults to get drugs over the wall. They are also using drones for drug delivery.

A wall is not going to stop drug trafficking.

Exactly

Trump is a joke. He shows no leadership qualities that would be admirable nor worthy of respecting. The fact remains, his rallies show a lot of hostility and violence something that is not happening at other candidates rallies.

Trump doesn't encourage violence at his rallies at all.


However, he does make jokes about hurting people...but doesn't do it

Did you listen when he said that, he pointed out that he was only saying not to hurt the man so the media wouldn't criticize him, NOT because he actually cared.
