A nation of idiots

I am so disheartened by the "yuge" numbers of people supporting Donald Trump that I haven't had the heart to post anything much lately.
Am I the only one who is both revolted and depressed by the thousands of our fellow Americans who actually think this belligerent bellicose boorish bullying buffoon can be anything more than a failed celebrity? He has declared bankruptcy four times. He speaks less coherently than most 9-year-olds. His speeches all consist of him calling people he doesn't like (which is anyone who doesn't vote for him) variations of "loser" -or in the case of women "bimbo"- and taunting his competition. He has insulted every possible demographic in this country. He has absolutely ZERO clue how to run a company, let alone a nation.
And yet...


God help us all. We are certainly our own worst enemy.

Trump is proof of Mencken's theorem: Democracy is the theory that the common man knows what he wants and deserves to get it, good and hard.
