Trump Quote Is True: He Really Wouldn’t Lose These Idiots If He Shot Someone (VIDEO)

You’ve heard the incredible crap that has been spewed from the mouth of Donald Trump (R-N.Y.) during this campaign. He’s gonna build a wall! He’s planning to ban all Muslims! And no matter what the hell he comes up with, Trump’s zombie followers find a way to make it alright.

I think back to the early days of the campaign, when Trump criticized war hero John McCain (R-Ariz.). McCain spent 5 years of the Vietnam War in a terrible war camp where he was repeatedly tortured. Trump wasn’t impressed. According to Politico, he said:

“He’s not a war hero … He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

The pundits went crazy. Politico said that Trump might have finally gone too far, but no. His folks didn’t even flinch. They just kept coming to his rallies.

When Trump said that Mexico was sending us a bunch of rapists, numerous businesses cut all ties with him. Everyone predicted that he had once again just gone too far!

Nope again. His minions stayed behind him in a big loyal clump.

Attack on Heidi Cruz? No problem. Cozy up to Putin? It’s all good.

No matter what he does, Trump’s clump seems to be willing to follow him like a pack of lemmings.

Jimmy Kimmel decided to test out Trump’s famous quote:

“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and I could shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters.”

A write up on SomeNews says that at the beginning of his show featuring the Big Orange Buffoon, Kimmel’s staff did some interviews with Trump supporters for a segment called “Lie Witness News.” They made up a completely outrageous fake quote and attributed it to Trump, multiple times. Then they asked Trump voters on the street what they thought.

It’s completely hilarious, I swear. These people didn’t bat an eye. They just smiled their big old vacant smiles and gushed about how cool it was that the candidate for president had “leg wrestled Vladimir Putin” or “shot a gun into the ceiling” during a press conference.

I watched the video, which you can see below. I laughed right out loud at the sheer stupidity.

Now that I’ve had a few minutes to recover and think about it, I’m actually scared to death that these people are going to be voting in November.
