Trump insulting his own supporters

Polls show most Republicans give President Trump high marks for his recent European diplomatic tour, in which he disgraced himself and our country by scorning our allies, showing disrespect for the Queen of England, and playing lapdog to the murderous Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Is it not fair to ask: What is wrong with these people? During the 2016 election campaign Trump famously boasted that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose support. Do his supporters not understand that he was showing his contempt for them? That this con artist was scoffing at his own devotees for being gullible enough to swallow his snake oil? Trump loyalists don’t even know when their intelligence is being insulted. They deserve Trump’s contempt – and mine.
