Actor and anti-Trump activist George Takei caused a stir after claiming on Twitter that Trump supporters are unwittingly helping to destroy America.
The 82 year old tweeted:
The thing about Trump voters is that they do not even realize they are enabling the desolation of our Republic. They somehow think they are preserving America, but in fact they are helping destroy it. And that is a tragedy of enormous scope.
Takei’s supporters quickly chimed in.
Eileen Granfors agreed and blamed “Fox Propaganda.”
Fox Propaganda plays a huge role in brainwashing the vulnerable: those who do not read, follow multiple news channels, and engage in civic events.

I’ve come to the conclusion that there are many angry people out there who feel marginalized. They somehow feel that Trump is their champion. I can’t understand it.

Keith Devlin thinks better K-12 education would result in less Trump supporters.
I fear we are reaping the outcomes of decades of not providing adequate K-12 education. Any immigrant citizen knows more about our system and its history, and consequently has greater respect for it, than many native-born Americans, including most current @GOP representatives

One Twitter user lamented “Yet SO MANY immigrants support Trump. I just don’t understand it.”

Patti Calvert wrote “Deep down they know but they don’t care as long as they think they’re hurting “the libs.” Their hatred for us is stronger than their love for our country. That is tragic.”
Trump supporter Peter Lavigna blasted back “Actually, we’re enjoying this era of peace and prosperity. Five more years to go, too!:
