33. Say instead that he doesn't have a tipping point for his rabid fans, but that's true of all cults...

...The leader can do anything to anybody including his followers, and they will excuse it and believe him right every time.

Fortunately for us, not all American voters, not even a majority (knock wood) have joined the cult. A lot of those making noise about voting for Trump are still in the "checking out the cult" phase--not the "I've sold my house, left my family, and decided to give myself, body and soul, to the cult."

These people going to cult meetings but not yet full members can be lured back out. Or at least made to question whether they really want to commit. But we can't let up for a second in their "de-programming." The more uneasy they feel about Trump thanks to people like Mr. Khan, and facts on Trump's scams, the more likely they may be to change their minds about voting for him.
