I keep getting asked if Donald Trump will survive his failure to disavow the Ku Klux Klan. Of course he will. His supporters don't care. They support him not because he's a conservative but because he's an authoritarian – someone who will bully and intimidate, and even use (or tolerate) violence, to get his way.
Trump's supporters have felt bullied for years by employers who treat them like horse manure, by politicians who take them for granted, by an economy that won't give them decent wages no matter how hard they work, by immigrants and minorities who appear to be driving down their wages and taking their jobs. And before that, they were probably bullied by teachers and parents who told them they would never amount to anything.
Now they've found their very own bully – and the meaner and more bigoted he is, the more they feel in control.
What do you think?
