I think Trump is probably misunderstood by most everyone, myself included.
I'm sure there were many who were entertained by his reality show and never considered he lacked political experience for the job.
I'm sure many evangelicals thought Trump was truly a conservative, when in reality, Trump is only swaying which ever way the wind blows and not really standing for any principles at all.
I'm sure many thought Trump was actually the lesser of two evils, when he is showing over and over new depths he can take us with his evil racist agenda.
I'm sure there are many who thought an outsider was the best choice, when he just shows how truly outside of reality he is.
People thought we needed a non-politician business man running the country. Then people are learning his method of doing business is through Russian mobsters and con artist scams like Trump University.
And I imagine there are some liberals who actually thought Trump could be harmless since he is probably a closet liberal. But as time is showing, he has no real allegiance to any person or Party. He is only for himself.
