3. The GOP started down this road around the time you were born.

There was the white backlash to the Civil Rights Act, Nixon's Southern Strategy and The Powell Memo. It's been all downhill since then for the Republican Party. Trump and his base is the almost inevitable result of what Republicans have been pushing hard for the last 5 decades. Dog whistling galore, jingoism, anti-intellectualism, a "liberal media" narrative, the undermining of trust in government, etc.

The GOP created this monster, which they started assembling in the late '60s.
