Donald Trump has finally come clean and confessed that his supporters are not all that sweet and kind. That is an understatement. During the election, Trump’s fans worked very hard to earn the title of the dirtiest players in the game. On the campaign trail, Nazi signs went up along with the Confederate flags. It was not only visual; it was also physical and verbal – some of the billionaire backers assaulted, punched, and spat on protesters. Overzealous ones even threatened reporters and their family members. Few called Hillary Clinton a witch, a criminal, and other degrading terms that should not be repeated on this respectable platform.
However, instead of calling out his supporters, Trump encouraged them to attack protesters/hecklers and promised to handle their legal fees.
He also claimed that the people, who stood in line for hours to be at his rallies, were real, honest, and hard-working Americans who wanted to see a significant political shift. The real estate mogul blamed Bernie Sanders and Clinton’s backers for the riots, the fights, and the controversies.
At a rally in Orlando, Florida the New York billionaire confessed that his supporters were violent, mean, and vicious. He told a crowd of 11,000 people: “You people were vicious, violent, screaming, ‘Where’s the wall? We want the wall!’ Screaming, ‘Prison! Prison! Lock her up!’ I mean you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?”
He added: “Whatever happened to the deplorables, right? They’re not so deplorable. They’re not so deplorable anymore.”
While he was talking, a person screamed that Mrs. Clinton should be waterboarded. Moreover, the individual threw a bottle of water at a reporter, like in the past, Mr. Trump just smiled and did not attempt to correct the heckler.
Trump also said that he is happy that he won, because if he did not, he expected his people to take over the streets.
Trump made his final stop of the so-called “Thank You” tour in Alabama yesterday where he was welcomed by what looked like a mini carnival, which included 50 teenagers from Azalea Trail Maids who were dressed in antebellum outfits. Talking to the crowd under the pouring rain, Trump slammed Time Magazine for naming him “person of the year” instead of “man of the year.” He again bashed Boeing’s Air Force One deal and said he would not spend $4.2 billion on a plane.
