...given "permission" to show their true self.

Trump is a very clever business man, he knows how to get what he wants. I think he was well aware of this previously silent percentage of the community and in order to get them onside, told them what they wanted to hear, got down to their level saying, "see I'm just like you" and they took that as validation to behave in the same way.

I really hope now that he has the job he wanted that he turns it around and sets a better example. The worrying aspect for me is that there are people, and not just in the USA, I am talking everywhere, who think it's ok to mock a disabled person, call people awful names and much worse, and say "yes, this man speaks for me". I would love for the new President Trump to stand up when he is sworn in and say "Look, I just said those things to get you to vote for me ok?" I know that won't happen but it would be nice!
