The similar traits of claiming Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the JFK assassination? Of believing Obama tapped Trump’s phones? That 3+ million people voted illegally for Clinton? That climate change theory is a commie Chinese plot? That the CDC is lying about Ebola and vaccines? That Obama’s birth certificate is a fake?

To the extent many believe it, it is because they have bought into the Trump personality cult. They are the ones I was talking about when I said Trump “has been able to get the majority of the people in this country to buy into his alternative reality.” His madness is contagious.
