A simple story but so damn powerful, Sana Saeed. I live in the South and am faced with this sort of disconnected, unrealistic Trump support every day. An ultra-Christian co-worker who ignores his sexual assault comments, his multiple marriages, and the rape allegations of which he’s been accused. A woman struggling to find affordable care for her mother with Alzheimer’s who doesn’t seem to understand that Trump and his party are against government help for those sorts of problems. The examples go on and on. His supporters have a total disconnect with what he really is and what he really says, and what he is actually doing, but they don’t want to be considered ignorant or uneducated or bigoted!
