Initially, Trump supporters seem like mythical creatures – they can’t possibly be real, can they? They can’t possibly be sane, normal people, right? Then one presents itself on your Facebook newsfeed and you’re overwhelmed with the absurd, racist, and generally awful things they say.

MVP moment: A very confused woman in the front row who said, “Look at the people that are coming across the border illegally – a vast majority of them that are caught by the border guards [are] smuggling drugs and raping women.” To which Klepper responded, “I think the vast majority of your statistics are bullshit.”
