    Appalling really. And we know every time he makes a statement like this - it's projection. Especially given the professionally produced signs at his rallies.

    The only thing professionally made signs means is that there is/was a market for such. If there are enough people willing to protest something, someone's gonna make $$$ off 'em.

    He is who he is. Anyone who still supports him should know exactly what they are supporting at this point

    Trump is such a d***. The man is loathsome.

    Er, is not the same true of the signs his supporters hold at his rallies?

    That was precisely my reaction. Does he not know this, or does he not care?

    Are the signs, like his cheap clothes, also made in China?

    Just goes to show that Trump knows nothing of the real world. I can pop over to Kinko's (or a similar business) and have a pro made sign in minutes for a few bucks. Much easier than making it myself. If I do it myself on their self serve computers I can even save a few bucks. He's in his own little dullard world.

    How do any of his (non-racist) supporters look at Tweets like this and not recognise the basic building blocks of nazism? Insane.

    You know how you see pictures of horrific events in the past with "bystanders" looking on as if its a free matinee? Yeah, same thing here.

    To really understand Trump and his acolytes, it's worth understanding as Adam Serwer wrote in The Atlantic, "The Cruelty is the Point."

    Consider how often Trump supporters yammer on about making "liberal's [sic] heads explode." In their nihilism is a central pressure to batter and abuse everyone else.

    Now, there are liberals who are either aping this language, or who after the election seemed to hope that Trump's policies would flood and drown his supporters first, but that always struck me as vengeful reaction, akin to John Wick killing all those guys because they killed his dog and stole his car.

    A conservative asked on Twitter how we could put this country back together, and from the responses, it's clear we're likely doomed. People ached for the removal of liberals from the country, for "crushing them" by closing down universities.

    I'm good at being a cynic, but I'm increasingly uninterested in this country's future. It's a creaking, doomed, rusting empire that swings to orgies of cruelty: the murder of entire tribes, the brutalization along the borders, slavery followed by Jim Crow and habitual lynchings. And, there was a bit of sanity, but that's been corrupted and bought and slashed, and now we seem once again, the thing slouching towards Bethlehem.

    But it won't be written with glued macaroni and sparkly stars. Like one made from love.
