Trump's base, who are blindly loyal to him and Fox, live their lives based on FEAR.

In the case of Donny Bonespurs, he can fool all HIS people all of the time because they are all fools.

Want proof?

Just take a look at what lil donny put out as HIS accomplishments and how totally his base swallowed them.

Trump maniipulates his audience with one lie after another. It doesn't take much to repeatedly fool them.

I will ALWAYS remember Trump several years ago at a campaign rally making fun of was it a Reporter? or someone else who was disabled. That is seared into my brain. We can do so much better!!! The man has no morals, and no conscious and well it shows.

Trump’s Conspiracy Theories Target the Mentally Vulnerable

While the conspiracy theory crowd, who predominantly support Donald Trump and crackpot allies like Alex Jones and the shadowy QAnon,  may appear to just be an odd quirk of modern society, some of them may suffer from psychological illnesses that involve paranoia and delusions, such as schizophrenia, or are at least vulnerable to them, like those with schizotypypersonalities.

 

The link between schizotypy and belief in conspiracy theories is well-established, and a recent study published in the journal PsychiatryResearch has demonstrated that it is still very prevalent in the population. The researchers found that those who were more likely to believe in outlandish conspiracy theories, such as the idea that the U.S. government created the AIDS epidemic, consistently scored high on measures of “odd beliefs and magical thinking.” One feature of magical thinking is a tendency to make connections between things that are actually unrelated in reality.

 

Donald Trump and media allies target these people directly. All one has to do is visit alt-right websites and discussion boards to see the evidence for such manipulation.
