The Republican Party Has No Heart

MSNBC’s Katy Tur has said during an interview promoting her book Unbelievable that Trump supporters frequently spat the “c word” at her during campaign rallies. Whipped up by the candidate’s attacks against “fake news” and Tur personally, crowds became so belligerent that the TV network hired bodyguards to protect her. Once inside a Trump rally, ordinary, polite citizens in daily life, she notes, become “unchained. They can drop their everyday niceties. They can yell and scream and say things they’d never say out loud on the outside.”
