He’s right. The south has more dumbasses because of all the inbreeding

LOL and Woodward's account? It's really hard not to call Trump supporters dumb when they constantly go out of their way to prove that they are. Often proudly. Additionally, long term Trump ALLY Roger Stone called Sessions a hillbilly. So it's quite obvious that all of these guys have no respect for their base. Useful idiots. You know, like yourself.

Yes, you're a rube for all the reasons I outlined previously. Also, a useful idiot. Don't forget that part.

It's true. Southerners are dumb. Trump finally gets one thing right.

I’m not sure that phrase means what you think it means.

In political jargon, a useful idiot is a derogatory term for a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause of whose goals they are not fully aware and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause.

Nope. I couldn't think of a better description for you, and anyone who would support the GOP/Trump (that isn't making about $200,000 per year+). They're just not that into you Six. But they'll gladly take you spreading misinformation for them though. All while laughing at you behind your back. You know, like how Trump, Stone et al laugh at their "dumb southerner" base, and the "poorly educated" (the gleam in Trump's eye when he said that told it all).

At this point, ANY word is more credible than Trump's.

It matters because he's the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, not some random troll on Reddit.

He represents all people (or he's supposed to) and it's an insult that he sees Southerners as such.

How can he be trusted to govern and make decisions that affects us all when he thinks that way?

I mean, we all know that he doesn't care about anyone but himself, but this is yet another example. And naturally, his base won't care even when he's insulting them.

So I guess he is right about one thing... Southerners are dumb.

Of course this dovetails nicely with Bob Woodward's expertly sourced book, where he's quoted as saying it about Sessions. So what's the significance of this? Well, obviously, much of Trump's base is southerners, and the irony of this is that he has contempt and disrespect for the majority of his supporters! However, even though he feels this way about them, they will continue to support him while yelling "fake news", thus proving he's right to think of them as dumb.

Secondly, it also reminds me of Lyndon B Johnson's words regarding racism: "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

Neither Trump, nor the rest of the Republicans give a damn about the base, or the "common white man". To them, they are simply tools to vote them into office to enact tax cuts and other policies that will hurt them.

They know that to appeal to dummies, you distract them with scapegoats (Muslims, immigrants, blacks, gays, etc.) so they don't look at how you're really screwing them. That way the rubes don't join forces with the people they should in order to enact actual change that would benefit them.
LBJ (Lyndon B Johnson) is a POS though.. ehm.. USS Liberty ehm..

Don't forget John McCain's father who was complicit in the coverup. Another "war hero".

Yes, cognitive dissonance is huge to the more self aware Trump voter/disciple. To the zombie horde that makes up the cultist portion of Trumps' base, the devotion to their master is also like the halo effect.

Once you form a positive impression of somebody, you unconsciously misinterpret their behaviour to conform to your initial beliefs about them.The same way attractive people are thought of as more intelligent/successful. They just unconsciously can't do it. Plus, they are too dumb to believe an entitled billionaire from New York actually gives a damn about them.
