The central appeals of Trump is that he makes dumb people feel smart. Like, imagine you're dumb, and all your life people like me have been using words like "dumb" to describe how dumb you are.

Then, along comes this Trump dumbass. Suddenly, you're not the dumbest guy you know.
How empowering it must be.
Like, RIGHT NOW some conservative motherfucker is writing an op-ed "Trump's Windmill Comments Tilt Towards A Deeper Truth." It'll gloss over Trump's demented idiocy, but praise how Trump is "connecting" with people fearful of change.
It'll say that Trump *understands* something that @AOC -- who is a foot smarter than Trump -- does not. Imagine being told somebody needs to LEARN how to be as stupid as you.

It'll say that he's speaking a language the left needs to learn.
@AOC That language is stupid. Trump is stupid and speaks stupid and thinks stupid and validates the stupidity of others. Even his stupid supporters know that saying #WindmillsCauseCancer is stupid.

But man do they like not being the dumbest person in the room for a change.
