A lot of Trump's followers all share the assumption they "are better" than people of color, non-Christians, people from other countries, or who speak other languages. It's a heady mix of American Exceptionalism, racism, and bigotry. They are desperate to believe they are richer, morally superior, and blessed with heavenly grace, despite seeing examples every day that contradict those assumptions. Politicians like President Obama. Rich beloved professional athletes of color. Great Christian leaders like MLK. The list goes on and on.

It's getting bad now because of the inevitable change of demographics. Soon there won't be a White majority in America. There may already be too few Republicans to maintain minority rule. Scary, if you are one of them. And now the Delta variant is coming from India, the scariest country on Earth for these folks: Black people with nuclear weapons! Different country, different race, different religions, different languages...

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
