I guess I should've specified that I'm talking more about the voter base. Forgot that it could bw used as a vague term.

I catch it in the breakroom at work or when I'm at McDonald's or something

how can you never see CNN

besides my exact point was the Republicans displayed on CNN don't represent popular conservative thinking

the Republican base unfortunately likes Trump's rhetoric, they are only maybe 33% of the country though

the reason he won (enough) independents would be more of a begrudging acceptance in resentment of the establishment

Sorry, when you implied that people had the power to stop Trump by slamming him, I assumed that you were referring to the people who actually have power.

TV news is the lowest of the low. If it's on in a waiting room I'll look at my phone.

Crappy site, funny snippet though. I used to do this all the time in Germany, but with hash. We had to go to Amsterdam to get the green stuff.

I used to do that in high school. If I'm in that much of a pinch these days I'll try to find an apple.

The same people would vote for a 100% neo-nazi if they ran for Prez in 2020. I simply can't wrap my head around that sort of tribalism in the modern era.

(3)but not really the Republican voter base
1) Don't say 'the right'. It's all about 'his base'.

2) .

3) There's a GOP base, and then there's a Trump base.

There's a disturbing dynamic to the Trump base.

The GOP base makes up about 50% of the country. Trump's base is the 33%. This is his base:

a) The Wonder Bread White portion of the country. If your parents are not white, and weren't born in the USA, you are 'not one of us'.

They'll never bring up where their grandparents, or great-grandparents were born though.

b) The blind GOP voters who would put a Neo-Nazi in office before they'd ever vote democrat.

c) Gun loving, abortion hating, bible thumping zealots.

d) Folks that think everyone who's receiving social services must be one or more of the following: black or brown, a deadbeat, a schemer, a loser, a leach, a druggy, or a musician.

This is the one that I think truly believe defines it.

e) The kids that in high school during the 70s, 80s, and 90s, that were not jocks, or rockers, definitely not popular, didn't have a public voice, and always felt alienated from the norm. (this describes quite a number of my friends and family that think Trump is God).

He's their bully. He's their mid-life crisis puffed out chest. He's their spokesperson, regardless of what comes out of his mouth because of his bravado delivery - something they never had.

e is a bit silly. There are plenty of people who were popular "jocks" in high school who support Trump as adults. In fact, calling back to the "glory days" probably appeals to that group the most.

Bingo on this though.

Thatís a smart theory

Never thought of that / makes sense
