No matter what you think about Colbert he’s hit the nail on the head here. Trump is a brilliant marketer he plays the victim very, very well, to the point he speaks to those people who feel they have been the victim themselves. So for them Trump speaks for these so called victims. No matter how many times Trump plays the victim card for his supporters it never gets old.
And maybe that’s where they feel they can relate to him. Even though he’s not a victim.

Comedy aside, Colbert has consistently demonstrated solid critical thinking skills, over the years. Having said this, I don’t know why people care what celebrities have to say.

No shortage of people seem to blame politicians / political parties for the lousy hands they dealt themselves.

Trump is a demagogue and demagogues are masters of playing to the emotions of the crowd. They find a scapegoat or two and convince the masses that their problems are not of their own doing but due to the scapegoats. In Trump's version of this the scapegoats are immigrants and "elites", which is ironic because Trump is one of the rich elites.

The odd thing about Trump is that he is still trying to return this country to its founding principles after having endured the worst tantrums by political foes in our nation's history short of the assassinations and attempted assassinations of the past. It takes a strong, resolute, and dedicated person to weather the slander, vicious attacks, false-accusations, and general petulance he has tolerated. He's the only president in my lifetime, besides Reagan, who has stood up to the authoritarian collectivists. Just the fact that he has the backbone to stand up to that is amazing. I'd have given it all the middle finger a long time ago.

Colbert may understand some of the personality appeal, but he really needs to look at the Democratic platform. It's a complete disaster.

It is hard to believe that a rich successful man that has enjoyed celebrity for decades and is married to a super model can somehow be viewed as an underdog, a victim but he is. The reason for this of course is due to the Democrats that hate him. They gave him zero chance of winning in 2016 and since then they have been attacking everything he does and stands for. The media treats him like garbage and the Democrats label him an evil racist simpleton which perpetuates his victimhood which will help him to win in 2020.



The Dems hate him but they are their own worse enemy when it comes to defeating him.

CNN? The only one being played well is you. They have easily turned you into a "victim" of Trump.

Trump is a master politician. I've always given him that. In fact I'd say that is why he's been able to avoid impeachment. Everything we do know about Trump combined with his incompetence would have sank any other President. He knows how to play his base and push their buttons to keep them loyal to him and hating the Democrats. He knows how to play to their fears of an America that is less white, less straight, and less fundamentalist and looks less like a Norman Rockwell painting from the 1950s. That is why he's been able to remain so popular.
