Donald Trump's supporters are not happy.
They don't like what happened on Cherokee Street on Sunday night (see "Donald Trump Takes a Beating on Cherokee for Mexican Independence Day
" for all the gory details). They don't like Mexicans. They also don't seem to like the RFT. And they left comments by the hundreds — on our Facebook page, on Twitter, and on the story itself — to express their feelings.
Such a rich and nuanced response seemed to cry out for some analysis. So, inspired by the groundbreaking work of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, we've carefully analyzed and annotated the seven stages of Trump-loving grief.
We can and will deport these Mexicans.
We can get every last one, can't we? Umm, can't we?
Pinatas are "supposed human beings," too.
Maybe we should beat a pinata of an "illegal." That'll show them.
Stay away from "the masses of dark-skinned ones" or risk being beaten just like a pinata.
When white people are no longer the majority, we'll
all be beaten until our sweet entrails burst forth.
When all else fails, play the "whinny-ass liberal" card.
Will these poor Trump supporters ever reach the eighth and final stage — acceptance? Check out the comments section on this story for further updates.
