The 30 percenters who still support Trump become highly insulted when people call them "stupid." But what other explanation is there for that group other than stupidity? Willfully blind? What keeps them defending the indefensible crackpot that is the POTUS?
Read this piece from Foreign Policy by Max Boot to understand why almost a two-thirds majority of Americans has abandoned the fraudulent con man and so many who voted for Trump have now come to their senses and see Trump for the liar and cheap carnival barker that he is.
Those who still support Trump may never come to their senses, because they spend their time blaming other people (Mr. Obama, Hillary Clinton, Liberals, RINOs, and the Deep State) for Trump's own blunders, lies, and ridiculous tweets and refuse to look at the "ill-bragging gnome"1. that he is. He is internationally disliked by our allies and almost two-thirds of Americans do not approve of his corrupt lies and deceptions.
The remaining 30 percenters will probably stick with the "smoldering paranoid who haunts the White House, plagues the world, and offends every conscience of decency."2.

There's only one conclusion to explain the 30 percenters who still support Trump: That they are determined to ignore his unceasingly ignominious tweeting, his lies, and his national and international policy blunders prove that they really are as mentally deficient as he is.
If that offends them, too bad, I won't offer an apology. Their continued support for this National Disaster is putting Americans and what America has always stood for in danger. That they don't see this reality is more proof of Trump supporters' willful ignorance and blind allegience to a certifiable crackpot.
