That all sounds logical, but I think the majority of Trump supporters just like him because he's a bombastic a$shole. The GOP has officially become the a$$hole party.

With luck Trump might shrink the Republican Party until it can be drowned in a bathtub.

If true then the shrinkage must be equal on both sides because he has apparently pulled even with Hillary and the establishment Democrats seem to have decided that Bernie "is not a real Democrat and therefore doesn't count."

So that would indicate that both party establishments can be drowned in the bathtub, and we are left with a very large electorate intent on pushing Bernie over the top.

Or what?

I think most Trump fans think they are watching a reality show called "Trump Runs For President". They see all the primaries and caucuses as episodes where "their guy" stays in the contest, much like a recurring game show. They don't really want him to be President for four years, but they want to see how far he can go.

In fact, this "how far can he go" phrase is a direct quote from a Trump voter in an exit poll. And this confirms the idea that Republicans have given up on winning the Presidency ever again. Ronald McDonald wasn't interested, so they picked Trump as the "what the F***" candidate. Trump's non-political fans are just in it for the entertainment value.

That's an interesting take on it. I can see that a portion of the Trumpees would be like that.

Fury at racist cartoon comparing 'butch' and 'masculine' Michelle Obama to pageant-ready Melania Trump

Dailymail.com Reporter
The Daily Mail
May 14, 2016

Quote:
A cartoonist has been accused of racism after he portrayed Michelle Obama as masculine and butch next to a pageant-ready Melania Trump in a controversial drawing.

The cartoon - which has been branded 'racist and misogynistic' - shows a muscular Mrs Obama wearing a green dress with a bulge in the groin area.

Stood next to her is a feminine, smiling Melania Trump in a pink dress and holding a Trump sign.

The artist Ben Garrison tweeted the picture on Friday with the caption: '#InTrumpsAmerica The #FirstLady will be Great Again! #Trump2016.'

Racist, no. Tacky and creepy, yes.

I don't know about Melania: It will be time to trade her in for a newer model soon. Maybe The Donald already has one in the works. He does like to plan ahead, when it comes to wives and girlfriends.

Anyway, whichever lady becomes First Lady, it will be great if 14 year-old boys can "entertain themselves" to her photos online...
