Based upon some conversations I've had with supporters of Pres Trump and what I've read, a big part of Pres Trump's core support is due to his disdain of the so-called Swamp specifically and Democrats in general. Indeed, Pres Trump's base seems to take a certain amount of pleasure when Pres Trump ridicules someone on the left.

From that, it appears that his base doesn't have a problem with Pres Trump insulting people.

The question then becomes, what happens to his support when Pres Trump starts insulting a part of his base? What happens to his support when a New York City real estate developer starts insulting Southerners?

Will his base believe Pres Trump's denials?

That's just the oxy kicking in.

The southern portion? Yes. The northern portion? They've viewed southerners that way all along.

Southern accents make good used car salesmen.

So Trump can shoot a man on Fifth Avenue.
But he can't disparage one of the GOP Good Old Boys.

So, not only can't Trump drain the swamp, his base never wanted him to drain the swamp in the first place.
But they did want a purge of moderates and liberals from government, which is sort of like draining the swamp.

The Cletus and Billy Jim Bob's of the world will follow Orange Adolf down the rabbit hole. When your family tree has no branches, well.... you ain't very smart.

Parts of the south are already @ "idiocracy" levels. Only thing they are missing is the ATM that spits out Carl's Junior burgers and fries.

And they'd have that if only the Deep State hadn't stopped Trump from appointing Hardee's CEO Pudzer as Secretary of Labor.

I'm afraid that for the most part they will.

He'd have replaced food stamps with $1 off thickburger coupons (If you buy the fries and drink at regular menu prices)

Trump is just being non PC; just what his base wants.

Please don't stop that type of narrative. The more we see it, the harder our resolve is to reelect President Trump.

Really great name-calling directed at 63 million Trump supporters. And you STILL wonder why Trump won? Aborted monsoon, you really should have stayed past the 7th grade so you could post a valid argument instead of your grade school antics. Now then, get back to work before you burn the fries... in your career at Carl's Junior. Try harder on that next GED.

It's hard to be elected president from the federal pen.
But I do believe you and your kind are dumb enough to vote for Orange Adolf again. BTW, MORE people (3 million) voted for the Hillmonster then Dotard, so put that in your traitorous pipe and smoke it!

The truth hurts you fragile little snowflake.

What do you say to the people that get excited over WWE? call me an condescending elitist but come on folks it's not a sport and I am sorry that ESPN
and other REAL sports channels do not cover this garbage. Dumb Hillary and the DEMs should have shown footage of Trump and his WWE days.

We're dealing with bunch of people that won't admit they were wrong 150 years ago when they seceded and I doubt they'll wise up to being snookered now.

Awwww... poor little hillbilly snowflakes got their little hillbilly feelings hurt.

"you really should have stayed past the 7th grade so you could post a valid argument instead of your grade school antics."

The Trump supporter is complaining about grade-school antics??? Give me a break.

So pathetic. You can dish it out but obviously you can't take it. I would suggest you go back to your safe space, but the liberals have ruined the NFL for you. Whats a little snowflake to do? Probably go lurk of 4chan and r/The_Donald.
