Thank you, a great insight to the image, ego, etc. of Trump. How anyone can support him is beyond my comprehension, but support him they do.
In addition to your insight, is it not true, that his supporters have no one other than Trump to cling to and to cast him out would mean they are on their own, which they feel they have been for far too long.
He is their last hope, in some ways their ‘Messiah’.
I do feel sorry for his supporters, that they have felt so alone and have to cling to Trump, the worst of ‘Mankind’.
