Trump supporters are not just deplorable but according to Delegate Mark Levine (D-Alexandria) they are also “mentally deficient” and “dangerous”. From the Washington Post,
I think Donald Trump is appealing to people who are mentally deficient,” he said. “I really do. I think he’s reaching out to people who believe awful things and might take a pop at Hillary Clinton. Dangerous people follow this stuff.”
Wow! So now Trump supporters are dangerous assassins! Levine made these accusations on Sunday on Fox News.
“I never said all Trump supporters are mentally deficient people,” he told The Washington Post on Monday. “What I said was, he’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.”
John Whitbeck, Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia quickly responded,
“The 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,” John Whitbeck, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, said in a written statement. “First Hillary Clinton said Trump supporters were from the ‘basket of deplorables,’ now Delegate Levine says our Republican nominee is ‘appealing to people who are mentally deficient.’ Millions of Virginians support Donald Trump and Mike Pence. The arrogance and elitism here is simply breathtaking.”
Well said Chairman Whitbeck.
