A congressional Democrat from Georgia, with a reputation of not being the brightest, believes the average supporter of President Donald Trump is a broke, uneducated rube addicted to alcohol, drugs and racism.
“Donald Trump supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early,” Rep. Hank Johnson confidently asserted during a speech Tuesday at the Friendship Baptist Church in Atlanta.
“Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair.”
The actual facts, of which Johnson and his Democrat peers seem to know little about, completely belie everything he claimed about Trump’s nearly 63 million supporters.
Studies have shown that alcoholics and substance abusers tend to hold liberal political views, conservatives are more likely to own their own home and Republicans in general usually make more money than their cash-strapped liberal peers. These are the facts.
What Johnson asserted in his rambling speech, some of which may be heard below were lies:
The Georgia Democrat also took some shots at the president, accusing him of being a racist and authoritarian who seeks to roll back America’s incredible civil rights progress.
“Americans elected an authoritarian, an anti-immigrant, racist strongman to the nation’s highest office,” Johnson said, ignoring the fact that like a majority of the American people, the president stands against law-breaking criminal aliens, not law-abiding legal immigrants.
“Donald Trump and his ‘Make America Great Again’ followers who want to return American back to a time where white men and white privilege were unchallenged, and where minorities and women were in their place,” he continued, ignoring the army of minorities who support Trump.
Nearly everything Johnson posited about Trump and his supporters was a lie, save for his claim that they tend to be less educated. This was technically correct, according to the data.
But there’s a glaring catch. Democrats suffer from the delusion that a piece of paper makes one more intelligent or wise. But while a degree may give one a level of expertise in a particular area of study, that expertise rarely extends into the real world.
For instance, the majority of conservatives likely know full-well that the 210 square mile island of Guam would not tip over were a large enough contingent of U.S. troops stationed there.
Interestingly enough, Mr. Education seemingly did not know that.
“My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize,” he said while questioning since-retired Adm. Robert Willard, the then-commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, about the build-up of U.S. Marines on the island nine years ago.
According to this brilliant man, it’s the Americans who voted for Trump who’re ignorant rubes. It’s this same man who seems to believe Trump is equivalent to deceased Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
“Much like how Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican Party,” he said in another part of his speech Tuesday. “Hitler was accepting of violence towards the achievement of political objectives. Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies.”
“Americans, particularly black Americans, can’t afford to make that same mistake about the harm that could be done by a man named Hitler or a man named Trump.”
According to a growing body of social media users, Johnson should look in the mirror.
“Hank Johnson, I’m a proud American from a legal immigrant family,” one Trump supporter wrote. “I find your comments about Pres Trump and his followers repulsive and disgusting. Take a good look in the mirror Sir you have a lot of inner demons you need to address before you judge anyone.”

You are a Big Race Baiter. As a Jew I am insulted by your comparison of Trump to Hitler. Only goes to show how uneducated and hateful you are. Shame on you for exposing so much racism and Hate. Look in the mirror. Never forget Black Africans sold their own people into slavery.

You become what you hate. I’d suggest, since he is a “man of the cloth” that he look in the mirror and start trying to cast the beam out of his own eye before he attacks our current president. Hank is a hypocrite#shameonhank
