Trump called out the wrong ABC News on Twitter — and got a koala in response
His deplorable base would view it as weakness (being civilized).
I dunno about deplorables but watching the rallies is something else. It's like a cross between a religious event and a wrestling match. There's a kind of mania at work there.
the daily mails comment page was yeah they were innocent of that but being black locking them up prevented other crimes

Maybe it's early in the day but have people really become so used to assault/rape allegations against Trump that a story like this isn't more ... major?
