They just don't get it. Supporting Trump is not about the man...it's about the movement.

Trump is the time...is the place...is the motion. Trump is the way that we're feeling!

1980 was a far better time in America than obama's 2008-2016.

Trump is uncensored and raw and at times uncouth, but what you see is what you get. Can you say that about establishment politicians? They'll smile and smother you with platitudes and promise you anything, then immediately spin the excuses for not doing it. Would Trump be any better? Who knows, that's not his destiny, whether he appreciates it or not, his role in this election is to send a message to the corrupt oligarchy we call our government. There is definitely growing dissension, if it can't be addressed in the voting booth, then the next revolutionary war is around the corner.

Trump is not explicitly racist. He is much more subtle than that. He manipulates and uses racists and racism to his advantage and to gain support from bigoted people and groups. He likes to be divide people and pit them against each other--just like he did on The Apprentice. It's a formula that works for him on reality tv and reality life.

He is, however, massively sexist in that to him women are objects to be used for self-gratification, self-esteem, envy, or whatever else he needs them for. He prefers that women be young and attractive and judges them on that basis (except when he is running for office and pandering, of course).

And what's with this make America great nonsense? Was America somehow better when women and blacks were openly discriminated against. I recognize my white male privilege, yet this wanna be politician refuses to acknowledge his........disgusting

He didn't call all Mexicans rapists and he didn't call all women fat pigs and Seattle is not anywhere close to being the centrist part of the country, so nobody cares.

Having said that, couching lies about my health care, my doctor, Obamacare, my taxes, the IRS and Benghazi in smooth talking, political speak doesn't make those lies any less offensive that a reference to fat pigs. My president looked me in the eyes on TV and lied to me over and over and over and over and over again. THAT offended me.

Your last paragraph is just stupid and unworthy of comment.
