Following his big win in the Nevada caucus, Trump thanked his many supporters. He made it a point to highlight how broad-based his support is.
“We won with young. We won with old,” said Trump. “ We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated. We’re the smartest people; we’re the most loyal people.”
“When Donald Trump said he won with the poorly educated, many people mistakenly assumed he was talking about our group, “ said Horace Brumble, president of The Mentally Challenged of America, Inc. “We wanted to clear this up by formally coming out with our own endorsement.”
“Our group is not made up of the poorly educated,” said Brumble, “We are instead a coalition of clinically diagnosed morons, imbeciles, dimwits, idiots and ignoramuses.”
“We strongly believe in Donald Trump and our members vote wherever they are legally allowed to,” Brumble said. “We believe Donald Trump will fight for our right to vote in every state of the Union. Right now we are just another discriminated against minority.”
The MCA endorsement comes on the heals of the controversial endorsement of David Duke, a white nationalist and former Klu Klux Klan grand wizard, who said voting for anyone besides Donald Trump “is really treason to your heritage.”
Many in the media criticized Trump for not renouncing Duke’s endorsement.
“Look,” said Trump, “we are a big tent movement. We welcome one and all. As Republicans we need to grow the party. And to be perfectly honest with you, I do not know David Duke or what he stands for. I can’t help it if someone wants to support me.”
“Of all the candidates in the race, we believe Trump understands us best,” Brumble went on to say.” We know we’re not smart. But we know what love is. And our members just love Mr. Trump.”
It is hard to imagine Trump not winning his party’s nomination with such a wide and disparate group of supporters.
