How Trump Lost His Base

They loved him when he closed our borders to refugees.

They cheered when he defunded Head Start.

They excused him for conspiring with the Russians---Hey. Putin's white. And Christian.

They did not seem to mind his narcissism or the nepotism.

They did not notice the misspellings.

But now, as the rockiest first 100 days of a U.S. presidency draw to a close, Trump's Base of Self Styled Rebel Outlaw Wannabees is finally turning on him. Why? Because he broke the Outlaw Code.

He defended the enemy.

Normal people saw Trump retaliate against an illegal nerve gas attack. But Trump's base saw him betray his pal Putin. They saw him defend a bunch of Muslim terrorists. They watched in horror as he gave up on his (implied) promise to take Obamacare from minorities and give Trumpcare to whites. Trump did what every other typical politician since the beginning of time has done when faced with plummeting poll numbers----he gave up on the economy and focused all his attention on making war----against the wrong people. Only a panty-waist liberal like Bill Clinton goes to war to defend Muslims! And then, to choose First Twink Jarad over right wing strong man Bannon----

The wrath of an outlaw base scorned is not pretty. I guess Trump did not read "Bandits". If he had, he would have known that betrayal of loyal supporters is the number one sin for a Bandit King.
