"I don't think he goes away. I -- you know, this is a Caesar crossing

"I think he's going to be the Che Guevara of deplorables," - Bill Maher on CNN

We have all been witnessing a candidate for President of the United States who lives in an alternate reality and has convinced a great many people to follow him and do the same. To them, he is a cult hero who speaks the truth but is demonized by the media elite. They listen to him and only to him. Lies! False accusations! All by a rigged system rife with conspiracy! He alone can fix things! He cares for this country!
But more importantly, he cares for THEM. With him "WE HAVE A VOICE!"
