Sorry Politico, but there is indeed a large number of supporters who genuinely sympathize.
And not only DO they sympathize, they are weary of democracy itself, and want it replaced with some good hardcore authoritarian theocratic fascism.

Hardcore authoritarian theocratic fascism may have some appeal until for some reason they come for you. People are so short-sighted. Don't they understand any law you pass also applies to you?

The very first thing a fascist regime would do is to take everybody's guns. Then they shut down the internet or at least all it's porn. Give people the death penalty for using illegal drugs, and just about anything fun is illegal. And no more big gas-guzzlers because they cost too much. By then they'll be sorry: All their favorite things are illegal. If you complain, you vanish in the night.

Now you're asking them to think ahead to consequences which might affect them negatively??
ROTFMOL

These people can't even figure out that the guy wants to yank the Social Security that so many of them live on!

You'll get the same response you get every other time:
They wanted all the bad stuff to happen "to other people"...the OTHER people who aren't like them. They didn't think any of the bad stuff would apply TO THEM!

So now the racist-in-chief is back to his Saturday statement and disavowing his Monday statement.
Trump Defends Initial Remarks on Charlottesville; Again Blames ‘Both Sides’

Quote:
In a long, combative exchange with reporters at Trump Tower in Manhattan, the president repeatedly rejected a torrent of bipartisan criticism for waiting several days before naming the right-wing groups and placing blame on “many sides” for the violence on Saturday that ended with the death of a young woman after a car crashed into a crowd.


Quote:
And he criticized “alt-left” groups that he claimed were “very, very violent” when they sought to confront the nationalist and Nazi groups that had gathered in Charlottesville, Va., to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee from a park. He said there is “blame on both sides.”


Somewhere else I see where he said their were fine people on both sides. Let's see now . . . NAZI's and white supremacists are fine people? What a turd.

So this POS in the White House again equates people with clubs, torches and other instruments of intimidation with protesters protesting the hate groups.

Oh, good grief.

Our feckless leader, Pres. Trump. He first makes a "tepid and mealy mouthed response" response to Charlottesville. Then a couple of days later comes out with a short, unemotional condemnation of the KKK and other hate groups. I guess since that po'd David Duke, who admonished our feckless leader. So now Trump has face planted in BS with his third response. And now Duke is happy again, thanking and complimenting Trump. Whew, saved that ugly little chunk of base.

Three reactions. First one in the middle, second one on the left, and finally, a very passionate one on the right. Strong, steadfast values, huh?

And his stupid argument about taking down statues. No, we won't take down George Washington's statue. He was a president of the United States and he didn't wage war on the United States.

This guy is such an ignorant nut case he makes my molars ache.

Oh, yeah. And Trump thought it was such a big deal that the KKK had a permit to be in the park on Saturday. I'm pretty sure they didn't have a permit for a torch lit procession to a local church on Friday night. I guess it was some kind of surprise historical reenactment.

I see the Tiki Torch company has disavowed the KKK. Pretty funny.

Donald doesn't understand the meaning of the word "treason", obviously.

George Wallace should be so proud. Trump established his bona fides as a white supremacist. It cannot be sugar coated. I listened to his actual remarks. Wow. Bull Connor, move over.

There was a time in America when kicking a Nazi's butt, was cheered. Eighty years later, Trump, CONservatives, and Alt-Righters call Nazi butt-kickers "trouble makers."

Trump and his sycophants are Nazi sympathizers. How said is that?!?
