Today I direct your attention to this opinion piece at CNN.com. For those of you who missed it, there was a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville this weekend to protest the proposed removal of Confederate statues. One white supremacist used his car to murder one young woman and injure several others who were there to protest their actions. Donald Trump, in his statements this week, made it abundantly clear that he is with the white supremacists.
But why? Why has Donald Trump gone out of his way to make it clear that he is with white supremacists? Commentator S. E. Cupp offers his opinion: Donald Trump has them confused with his base, the largely white and economically disenfranchised voters from the flyover states. In Cupp’s opinion, Donald Trump will not change course until/unless an overwhelming majority of his supporters yank their support and let him know he is wrong.
