It’s not a shocking revelation that individuals who choose to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s candidacy might be a few eggs short of a dozen. There are some members of Trump’s constituency who have ventured outside of the realm of misinformed and gullible to delusional and dangerous.
Glenn Beck, of all people, the former crying clown of Fox News and founder of conservative publication “The Blaze” reported on an individual who called into his radio program that made threats against Trump and Beck. The caller said:
I’m just saying, he’s appealing to people who are very frustrated and angry. Their frustration and anger can only be subsided if he makes his promises true. And he has a lot on his shoulders. Maybe he himself doesn’t even know how much. But if he doesn’t come through for us, he’s going to have bigger problems, bigger problems than what you know.
Mr. Beck was confused by the caller’s statement and asked for clarification, “Okay. So if he doesn’t build a wall like China, then he’s in trouble. It’s the wall that is your line?” The caller replied with an ominous warning, “Oh, he’s in so much trouble. You don’t even understand the backlash of us, the ones who are so frustrated and angry and tired of all the political stuff. We’re going to come after him personally. You know what I mean? We’re going to get him.”
Trump’s chickens are truly coming home to roost. After spending over a year churning the machine of hate, truly vile individuals have come out of the woodwork. While Trump was derided for imploring his followers to attack Hillary Clinton, it appears he too will not escape the election unscathed and he has only himself to blame.
