Trump supporters are not just deplorable but according to Delegate Mark Levine (D-Alexandria) they are also “mentally deficient” and “dangerous”. Â From the Washington Post,
I think Donald Trump is appealing to people who are mentally deficient,â€ he said. â€œI really do. I think heâ€™s reaching out to people who believe awful things and might take a pop at Hillary Clinton. Dangerous people follow this stuff.â€
Wow! Â So now Trump supporters are dangerous assassins! Â Levine made these accusations on Sunday on Fox News.
â€œI never said all Trump supporters are mentally deficient people,â€ he told The Washington Post on Monday. â€œWhat I said was, heâ€™s appealing to the kind of mentally deficient person who could take a potshot at Clinton. There are a lot of mentally dangerous people out there. It only takes one person, one mentally deficient person.â€
John Whitbeck, Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia quickly responded,
â€œThe contempt the Democrat Party has for hard-working Virginians who just want a better life for themselves and their children surfaces time and time again,â€ John Whitbeck, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, said in a written statement. â€œFirst Hillary Clinton said Trump supporters were from the â€˜basket of deplorables,â€™ now Delegate Levine says our Republican nominee is â€˜appealing to people who are mentally deficient.â€™ Millions of Virginians support Donald Trump and Mike Pence. The arrogance and elitism here is simply breathtaking.â€
Well said Chairman Whitbeck.
