What does this say about his supporters?

What does this say about his supporters?

I just have to ask this once again: how can I possibly respect people who are supporting this lunatic?

He got to the White House through flukes, errors, cheating, celebrity, petulance, and prejudice that gave him 70,000 votes across three states in an anachronistic, undemocratic system. But he's there now and he's demonstrated what he is. This man is not right. Anyone can see that.

The fact that tens of millions of Americans, including 90% of self-identified Republicans still support this narcissistic psychopath tells us that the sickness is cultural.  These people admire a man with an extremely abnormal personality disorder and are willing to give him the power over life and death on this planet. America needs to grapple with what that says about us and our system. Something has gone very wrong.
