I know Donald Trump was joking when he said he could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue, shoot someone and not have his poll numbers go down.
Yet he’s probably right. Donald Trump could shoot and kill dozens of schoolchildren and his supporters would say it was the kids’ fault for getting in his way. If his supporters stuck up for him after he questioned John McCain’s bravery and stuck up for him after he mocked a disabled reporter is it really a stretch of the imagination that they would stick with him for committing murder?
It’s a morbid thought, but we live in the most morbid of times.
