Trump Insults Followers' Intelligence, But They Still Insist on Following the Top

"Why Do Trump's Supporters Allow Him to Insult Their Intelligence?" asks The Atlantic's Conor Friedersdorf.  Trump tweeted, "The Fake News Media will not talk about the importance of the United Nations Security Council's 15-0 vote in favor of sanctions on N. Korea!" \Mr. Friedersdorf lists many many articles about the N. Korea mainstream sanctions published before the tweet.

Considering how intent Trump supporters are on supporting him, no matter what he does or says, it is obvious that they are bowing to their programming to not question the top of the hierarchy, and to believe everything that filters down, no matter how ridiculous. Hail to the Hierarchy, no matter what.
