In a recent piece, The Guardian interviewed several Trump voters on why they voted for him, and if they approve of his work so far. One of the main reasons they voted for Trump has been heard a thousand times—they didn’t trust Hillary Clinton. Their mistrust of Clinton runs so deep, that no amount of collusion with the Russians would make them regret their decision.
“I don’t know what all was done,” said Jack Artley, 43, a machine operator at the Biospectra pharmaceuticals plant in Bangor. “No matter how it comes out, even if it comes out that there was some shady business going on there, I’d rather Trump [be] in there than Clinton. So, whether he had to cheat or not to get in, I’m OK with that.”
Not only would they be okay with Trump and the Russians working together to undermine the election, they’re happy about it. “If they did, I’m actually glad they did,” John Picard, a carpenter, said of alleged Russian tampering in the election. “I feel that you shouldn’t bother somebody else’s country. But the idea that they got all this information and they let it slip out – I’m happy if that’s true. We got some real good documents on some people who were really messed up, so why not?”
Many Trump supporters that were interviewed expressed frustration and doubts over the president’s abilities. Yet, they remarkably still think Clinton would have been more corrupt than Trump colluding with a foreign nation to steal the White House. Their remarks echo Trump’s tactics too. Whenever things get heated, Trump resorts to attacking Clinton. This video is a clear indication that Trump’s base has been indoctrinated by his hogwash.
