This week, Jimmy Kimmel took to the streets to find out from Donald Trump supporters what it would take for them not to vote for their favorite bombastic billionaire.
It seems like Donald Trump could say anything and they would stick with him, and to test this hypothesis, we went out on the street and asked people who said they’re on team Trump, what would Donald Trump have to do to lose your vote?” explained Jimmy Kimmel.
A few answers were somewhat predictable.
But others were downright horrifying. Like when one woman said she’d draw the line at Trump “punching a woman right in the face on national TV.”
Wow, that’s very…specific.
Another had an even more stupefying answer.
Be a child molester,” another said, when asked
One supporter was a little foggy as to the premise of the question.
Short of killing somebody… I don’t know,” one man answered.
Then Kimmel’s team started asking a few more original questions, and incredibly unearthed a deep underground spring of pure ignorance.
What if he turned out to have a tattoo of a swastika on his shoulder?” they asked.
“He probably does,” the supporter claimed, and explained why it wouldn’t make him choose another candidate. “I got friends that have swastikas on their arms and they’re cool,” he said.
The interviewer even borrowed from one of Trump’s most controversial campaign boasts and asked:
What if he stood in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shot somebody? Would you still vote for him?”
“Absolutely,” the supporter answered.
By this time, no one should be shocked by some of the answers Kimmel received from Trump supporters, after all, this is a man who has the endorsement of biker gangs and white supremacists like the KKK. Vladimir Putin loves “The Donald”, as does Kim Jung Un. And ISIS is praying for Trump’s inauguration next year.
The late great comedian George Carlin said it best.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
Wise words to remember, especially in November.
See what I did there?
